Friends, I see that so many of you are still angry and restless about the world and the politics within it. You post angry memes about Muslims and Obama and Elections, etc. I understand. Your pages are full of worry and doubt. But I want you all to take a breather. I want you to remember Who is in charge. I want you to remember the Author who wrote this script. I want you to remember the Conductor who orchestrated every election (including Obama’s), every socio-economical move (like the environmental push to take over human rights), every moral political movement (like the homosexual legal agenda) and every world event that we are seeing today.
Who do you think brought every one of these things into being?? God did. Some people like to say that satan brought all this to be because they are evil. But if that were so, then God is helpless against satan. We all know that this is impossible- then satan would be first and God would be second. God is first and satan is last- even far below the angels.
God is the most powerful. Nothing can happen without his full knowledge and permission. The story of Job tells us that. So many Christians can’t wrap their minds around that- but this is the only way to see everything. Then, you ask, is God responsible for bringing about death, destruction, war, disease, and every kind of evil? I say, “Yes, he is. Of course he is. But what you call ‘evil’ is simply a step in his overall plan to create Mankind in his full glory to live with him in heaven forever.” Why do you think you get to define what is good or bad to God?
God gets to determine what is good or bad. He defines and creates his own strategy to create his final creatures: Man. He has defined this Story since before it’s inception. He knew the ending before he rolled it out. He is the General who laid out the battle plan before he set the troops out into action. The strategy is already in place. Each step has been fully planned. The outcome is the point. The outcome is YOU and ME in our final, perfect, newly made glory. God has determined what steps must come about to create us, his Children. Who are you to say that his steps aren’t right, aren’t moral, aren’t fair? You are the created ones at the end of the process. Can the gold ring complain about the intense fire and the dross that was thrown away during its creation??? No, it can’t.What you may think is evil is God’s plan for your creation. It is up to him. He is God, after all.
Satan is his tool. Period. Now. Within this grand scheme, you and I can certainly choose to do real good and real evil. This is how we are to be judged. We do have a choice and this choice determines our salvation. Will we, or will we not, honor and choose Jesus, to save us from our sins? That one decision will determine whether or not we will be part of the Outcome of God’s Plan. That’s it. So, you might ask, why should there be all this evil around us as we make this simple choice?
Let’s take a man who is very, very, very rich and very, very beautiful. If he showed all his riches to women, every woman would say she loved him. Indeed, every woman would think she did love him- so desirable would his wealth, lifestyle and beauty be to her. Even she would be blinded by all his outward gifts. He would always wonder if she really and truly loved him above all other men, wouldn’t he? He would wonder if she loved him for himself or only for the money and for his physical beauty, right?
So, a wise man like that might go ahead and hide all his money and make himself look very poor. He might hide his beauty by growing a scruffy beard and long hair and wearing baggy, poor clothing to hide his body’s strength. And then he would look for a woman that would love him just for him and his essence. If he could find a woman who loved him without all the outward things and only for who he was on the inside, then he could be SURE of her love, couldn’t he? Thus, he has tested her and found her heart to be true. Then, once he has secured her love, he can shower her with all that he has! Won’t she be so happy then!
This is exactly how we can see God’s use of evil and satan in this world. We must be tempted- and sorely tempted- by other things. We must choose God because we truly love him for him. Life must be very difficult for us- we must be tempted to give up. Why should he give us all his wealth if our love is given so cheaply? No, he wants true LOVE from us. This can only be gotten through severe testing. THIS is his choice! He COULD overwhelm us with his power and his glory and all that he could give us- but instead, he allows satan to tempt us with every sin and evil thing. And he has allowed satan to be beautiful and wealthy and powerful in every worldly way while dressing his beloved Son in rags. He wants to know whom we love best- satan or him. Once we have chosen him, and only then, we will receive all that he has.
Thus, evil serves his purpose. In the end, evil is not really evil. It is good when wielded by God’s hands and for his purposes. It is necessary for our creation. We weren’t done being created with Adam and Eve. We needed to be tested. Satan never ‘ruined’ anything of God’s. He was fully intended to temp Eve. God knew exactly what Eve would do- he created and orchestrated the whole thing. No. Every event you see happening is part of his Grand Plan to finish his Creation of Men. Eventually, as described in the Bible, this Plan will come to its final conclusion. This universe will be ‘rolled up like a scroll’ and it will be done. No more human beings will be made. One has to put on God’s eternal glasses sometimes to put things into perspective.
So don’t obsess too hard on these earthly matters, Friends. I want, hope, pray that you put more energy into your Bibles. Read it and understand more about God, why you were made, what promises you have been given by Jesus, how Jesus fits into the Grand Plan laid out by God, the signs of Christ’s Return (which are happening before your very eyes!), and the weapons you have against satan- of which most of you are completely ignorant! The only reason I ever talked about politics was to give you proof that Christ’s return was near- not to get you obsessed over earthly matters. I hope you understand that now. In any case, blessings to you today.
