God is not to blame for the calamities we face. It started with Lucifer and Adam. Everything has been altered.
2 Timothy 3:1 says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” We are living now in the last of the last days. The Bible said there would be hard times. Jesus even told us there would be famines, earthquakes, pestilence in many places and we see lots of that today.
Many times when we see these natural disasters, if we’re not careful, people will blame God. They say that He either sent the destruction or simply allowed it to happen. We need to understand, however, that this is not part of God’s original creation.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, extreme weather are a result of the fall of man and the fall of Lucifer, who later became the devil. Even though the earth is beautiful it exists in a fallen condition, under a curse. That’s why God has given us the Authority to speak to the mountain. Many people want to pray to God about the mountains in their lives, when in fact we should speak to the mountain. The Bible says we are to resist the devil and he will flee.
Romans 8:22 says “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” Even we ourselves are crying out for the redemption of our body. Thank God, there will be a day of release, when we will have a glorified body like Jesus. But until then there is a curse on the earth, because of the fall of man.
That’s why now man must work by the sweat of his brow. That’s why there is pain associated with childbearing, and why the thorn would spring up with the thistle. We are living in a world tainted by sin.
We all face things in life. We must not blame God for the things that happen in nature that are destructive and catastrophic. Even insurance policies process claims as “an act of God.” It’s not an act of God. It’s simply the earth groaning and travailing for the day of release. Essentially the earth is dying.
As important as some people make it to be we will never save the earth. People are concerned about global warming. It’s much worse than that. It will be global melting. 2 Peter 3:12 declares, “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” Everything we see will pass away. There will be new heavens and a new earth. That’s why the Apostle Peter tells us to live a Holy and Godly life. Our lives are even described as a vapor that passes away. That’s how brief our lives are down here.
So, God is not to blame for the calamities we face. It started with Lucifer and Adam. Everything has been altered. So realize that God is a good God. The devil is a bad devil and he’s the one responsible for tragedies upon the earth and in the lives of people. In the Book of Revelation, once he is finally removed, there will be no more death, or crying or pain. Paradise is once again restored. Only peace, love and goodness will reign forever. Remember God is good and is our answer. DON’T BLAME GOD!
There are many things that will endeavor to steal from our lives and try to hinder our faith walk. One, in particular, is very destructive.
We established the fact last week that Jesus died for our sins. Most everyone will agree with that fact. However, the Bible also says that He paid for our sicknesses and diseases; at the same exact time. Everything Jesus did for us, He did as our substitute.
This is a question many have asked. We see the day of Atonement occur, once a year, when the High Priest would offer sacrifices for the sins of the people, as well as himself.
In the heart of every person is a Plan-A chosen for us, specifically tailored just for us. Many times people will understand the importance of vision, yet they go on to make their own plans without consulting with God.
The Bible is PLAIN-Jesus shall come back for His church. The question is, are you ready? We need to walk close to Him. Stay in close fellowship daily and if you miss it, run back to Him quickly.
This is a debate that has gone on for centuries in the church. What is the answer? What does the Bible say concerning this?
One of the greatest things about the Lord is His compassion. He’s not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
We are where we are today because of the words we spoke yesterday and tomorrow will be a result of the words that we speak today.
The Gospel accounts are proof and evidence of what Jesus began to do and to teach. (Acts 1:2) The same miracles we see in the book of Acts should occur today. The Book of Acts is actually the Acts of the Holy Spirit through the Church.
We as the Body of Christ need each other. Sometimes, in the midst of trials, people feel alone, forsaken and overwhelmed. That’s where a church family comes in...
God is only in control to the extent that we pray and ask Him to do certain things. "You have not, because you ask not.” It’s a very simple idea, but we must ask.
God promises us that if we hunger and thirst after Him, we shall be filled. Spiritual Hunger is the number one ingredient to receiving from God.
In a world that is constantly changing, it’s imperative that believers are established in God’s Word. God’s Word is our sure foundation.
Whenever we hear the good news of Jesus Christ, we have an option. To embrace it or reject it. If we accept it, repent and receive Jesus as our Lord & Saviour, then we are saved.
In our lives, we have to make the decision to believe God’s Word – above everything else. If He said we’re blessed and not cursed then we should agree with Him.
Things in life will come to steal our joy and cause us to be offended. But it’s entirely our choice whether we take the offense.
Ps. 92:10 says, “I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” The Anointing is the Presence of God. It’s one of the most important things in our lives.
Many times it’s easier to accept everything in life as the will of God than to take responsibility to find the will of God. God doesn’t send sickness to people to teach them something.
