IF GOD EXISTS, HOW CAN EVIL THRIVE EVERYWHERE?
by Eugene Lopatynsky
8/08/2015 / Bible Studies
Can you blame God for what is happening? Or will you deny God? Who told you that NOW is the Kingdom of God on this Earth?
It so happens that people who teach that now is the Kingdom of God are liars, lying to you. For the longest time miss-information was taught to obscure the truth, alternating with promoting a different god (maybe gods and a goddess), but certainly not the God of the Bible.
Currently 'good' and 'evil' do coexist today. Why is that? Did not the human race start out in its earliest beginning, plunging into the "fruit" of "good and evil"? Anybody read it in the Bible? However, also Biblically, this scenario will certainly not continue forever.
THEN WHY DOES GOD PERMIT EVEN THE VERY CHANCE OF REBELLION, TO BEGIN WITH? WHY NOT PREVENT THE SIN OF SATAN AND THE SIN OF EVE?
It might be nonsense trying to speculate on the things which confront God. We just would not understand it. However, for those who like to waste their time and speculate, one answer (or part answer) might lie in the unique value of TRUE MOTIVATION, in loving and wanting to be loved; the need and the wonder and beauty of faithfulness (even under fire) and independent good will and loyalty. THIS PREMISE EXCLUDES PREPROGRAMMED MACHINES. It requires both the BENEFITS AND THE RISKS OF COMPLETE FREEDOM and independent choice. The risk involved may be well worth it, considering that in the long run God always wins. Man may allow or restrict the will of others. But God always allows free will to every creature, but this is followed always by just consequences, where JUSTICE must be SEEN; not only done but observed by all.
We know from scripture that one third of Angels and much of mankind have turned traitor to all that is good. Out of compassion and at great cost God provided salvation for MAN (mankind only), until an equal number is saved, equal (I think) to the number of angels lost. In the meantime, all of intelligent creation out there is observing what it means to trust the Ultimate Deceiver.
LUCIFER, THE GOD OF THIS WORLD AND HIS WORSHIPPERS
This is the time frame in which mankind (this means you and me) finds itself now. Adam and Eve have elected this course, chose Satan for their god and trusted him, and thus empowered Satan to become the Prince of this world. God permitted this; it's perhaps like saying, "you have been warned and you want it this way? Ok, go ahead and have it this way; see how you like it!" However, according to scripture, the authority of this Prince of Darkness is temporary and his will is limited by God. Some say, that if Satan's will had not been limited, nothing would have survived on this planet. They say that Satan, his demons and many of their human followers derive sexual-type pleasure from causing infinite agony, despair and destruction. Like drug addicts, knowing the outcome, they cannot stop. There is a mystery in iniquity, look it up in the Bible.
Never forget that the Devil is THE Father of Lies. Look it up in John 8:44. After the mess in the Garden of Eden, the Devil walked out as the god of this world (2 Cor.4:4).
Satan is now on short leash and his temporary dominion is limited, largely, to whatever he can implant in the hearts of men. But when the Great Tribulation comes, that leash is removed for 7 terrible years. May I echo Jack Chick- and thank our God we won't go into the coming nightmare of nightmares?
Now, if Satan controls this world system, the governments, the news, the media, politics, wars and religions, then WE ARE BEING FED NOTHING BUT LIES. The only things we can trust are the Words of God.
The Catholics did tremendous harm preaching their confused Traditions instead of preaching only the whole, still uncorrupted Bible. The current Prince of this world is Satan. That's why things really are the way you see them now. This is what you will read in any study of every HISTORY of every nation. There is no point in blaming God. Blame the devils and the devil followers and devil worshippers, who are the architects and joint- cause of all this.
Unfortunately, some people still blame God for their disasters. Remember, THIS IS NOT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Most lamentably the prince of this world is still Satan. Every disciple that Satan takes, he enjoys taking knowingly unto ETERNAL DESTRUCTION. Nice Guy, what? How would you like to have a master like that? It's actually incredible that Luciferian Elite and their followers don't know that. They don't even suspect that. These are highly intelligent and capable people, and they just trust the ultimate deceiver? Good luck, Guys.
Nevertheless, our world will, in the very near future, embody again the Kingdom of God; it is just a question of time. Many say, six thousand years under Satan, then ONE THOUSAND YEARS UNDER CHRIST. The sum makes seven. The whole Bible divides by seven. All of intelligent creation surely observes this outcome of trusting the ultimate deceiver. This chronology might not be written clearly in the Bible this way, but many believe it. The time clock of Incas and Mayas completely END at 6000 years. Why do they end? Their calendar ended in 2012. That of China is not far behind. The Jewish calendar is still some 250 years short of six thousand.
What cruelty is happening now will NEVER HAPPEN to you in the rapidly coming Kingdom of Christ on this earth! Trust only the Word of God. Why not read the Bible sometime? To redeem mankind again from an inevitable holocaust a tremendous price was paid by our God. Read it in the bible.
THE BIBLE IS A LOVE STORY; WRITTEN WITH BLOOD, UPON A WOODEN CROSS; THE STORY OF GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU.
Men are not lost because they are sinners; they are lost because they have rejected Jesus who died for them. Even if you go into a lost eternity and have not accepted Christ, He died for you, and you simply made His sacrifice for you of no avail. You have trodden underfoot the blood of your Savior.
Christ Jesus, your Creator, washed the feet of His disciples. They asked Him for a seat beside Him in heaven for distinction. What did he say? "On earth your rulers exploit you and oppress you and elevate themselves above you. But in heaven only he who is the SERVANT of all is the greatest"(paraphrased, if you please). Moses asked to see Gods glory. God said "I will let my goodness pass before you" (Exodus 33:18-19). God says HIS GOODNESS IS HIS GLORY. It's not the creation, which is the TREASURE. IT IS THE CREATOR. It's not the blue sky, the mountains, the white clouds or anything in this world which is the TREASURE, it is finding and loving and serving our Lord.
If you ever loved anyone with your whole being, and were loved in return, you might understand how precious your loved one is. No physical possession could ever come near to this in importance.
ANY CONCEIVABLE SACRIFICE IN THIS WORLD IS WORTHWHILE
Just to find Jesus and to belong to Him! If you want Him, pray now with me, "DEAREST LORD JESUS, FORGIVE ME MY SINS. COME INTO MY LIFE AND BE THE RULER OF MY LIFE. HELP ME TO LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY; I PLEASD TO OBEY YOU WITH ALL MY STRENGTH AND TO READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY, EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE."
If you do this, and mean it, with an open heart, this prayer will never fail. It will become the greatest assset you will ever have, and it will last forever. Even in this life it will be the greatest happiness you'll know, and a light upon your path. Conversely, to FAIL in this, will be the GREATEST DISASTER you will ever have, both here and hereafter.
After this, clean up your life with the Bible. Check out the guide in "How to read the Bible and clean up your life" in mygodsremnant.info and remnantonly.info. It's made for you.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! Click here and TRUST JESUS NOW
