I have often talked about GOD and how Great He is, and there is no way I can or will ever turn from my belief in Him, especially in the days we face ahead. So many times I have seen and heard, "why does GOD let things happen?" War, rape, molestation, killing, abortion, child theft, WHY? WHY? WHY? Well I don't have the answer still today, but I can say that there are two spirits in the world. Anyone who has ever picked up a bible has read the story of Adam and Eve. God will not be mocked. He plainly told Adam these words in Genesis 2:17, But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eat thereof thou shalt surely die. Again I say its pretty simple, eat of the tree of knowledge you will surely die.
If you truly know the story there was a serpent, he was cunning and crafty also the father of lies. You can't really say that he tricked Eve, he deceived her, he caused her to believe what was not true, so she ate of the TREE then enticed Adam to eat also, then they knew good and evil. Not everyone knows that the serpent-(snake) use to walk upright until he was cursed. This was the first instance of God verses the Devil, that is why he crawls on his belly still today. Ever since the beginning of time there has been good verses evil. Another instance of evil we can find in Genesis the 4Th chapter, Adam and Eve had two sons Cain and Abel. Because of jealousy Cain became angry and killed his brother. What about when Lucifer was the chief archangel? He was beautiful, but, because of this he became conceited, arrogant, and self centered. He thought himself higher than GOD, he lead a revolt against GOD in heaven (yes a war in heaven) and was cast out. He is the spirit that causes men to do the evil things they do. NOT GOD.
So far we have seen deceit, anger, jealousy, murder, lying, rebellion and disobedience and haven't even gotten out of the first 4 chapters of the bible. What was done in the beginning in time is no different than it is now. Back in the days of early Rome even in Sodom and Gomorrah, rape, molestation, incest, nothing was off limits. Take your choice of what you wanted to do.
Ecclesiastes 1:9, The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. THERE IS NOTHING NEW. What has been will be, but, the question that is always asked is, "why does GOD lets these things happen"? Well let's say that when God gave man a soul he also gave man a brain. He gave man the ability to choose, God's will verses man's will. There is not a man or woman on the face of this planet earth that GOD wants to perish.
Whether any one wants to believe or not there is not one soul here on earth that doesn't belong to GOD. It doesn't matter if you're Christan, Buddhist, Atheist, Scientologist and so on, or even your own person, you belong to GOD. There are so many times GOD gets a bum wrap, because He lets men make their own choices. We have seen deceit, anger, jealousy, murder, lying, rebellion, and now we will show you child theft. Its kind of long so bare with me, read for yourselves and see. Why GOD?
1st Kings 3:16-27  Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. 17 And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. 18 And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. 19 And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it. 20 And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. 21 And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. 22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that lived, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. 24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. 26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. 27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.
Let me say this, you all as well as myself have heard the stories of mothers who kill their kids as well as fathers. They SAY that they heard the voice of GOD telling them to kill, but, it is nothing more than the voice of the devil. That's not a cop out that's the truth. I GUESS we could sit here all day and talk and write, we could go into every part of the Bible and find things that happens today, that is nothing new that hasn't happened already. It's just that for the last 50 years we hear more about this because someone has finally begun to report such things and stand up. It's no longer swept under the rug and forgotten, no one turns a blind eye to it.
We are mere custodians of the child GOD gives us, as we said all things belong to GOD. Deny it all one wants but it's true. It is not my place to question GOD on any matter. But the day of retribution is drawing near. The above mentioned crimes should in no way be taken as a grain of salt, they are crimes against men, women, boys, and girls, as well as crimes against God and men will face Him soon. If it hadn't been for GODS mercy, we'd still be living by the laws of the jungle. Hey why not an eye for an eye? It would be fine with me.
One thing to remember is all will stand before the JUDGMENT SEAT OF GOD, and answer for their deeds. Why GOD?
until next time
Shalom and Peace to Israel.
