Have u ever asked why if there is a God does he allow all this suffering?.. I know i have especialy when u see kids or babies dying of terrible sicknesses, and my friend asked the same question, so i prayed about it. I asked him "Lord where are you ? why do people have to suffer? especially the kids Lord what have they done to deserve this?"
This is what he said....I gave you eternal life and YOU chose death, i gave you love and YOU chose hate, I gave you hope and YOU chose despair. You were given the choice!. So why do you now cry out where am i ? I have always been here with you!"
And i asked "Then why dont you do something about this?
And he said " I AM you just dont see it yet!"
P.S. Now all this means humanity as a whole, not just me and my friend obviously.
These are the scriptures that followed what he spoke to my soul about, that helped me to understand what he was talking about:-...
Proverbs 1:20-33:- Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares, she cries out in the chief concourses, At the opening of the gates of the city she speaks her words; "How long you simple ones will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in there scorning, And fools hate knowledge; turn at my rebuke; Surely i will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Because i have called you and you refused, i have stretched out my hand and no one regarded; Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke; I also will laugh at your calamity, i will mock when your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish comes upon you. " Then they will call on me,but i will not answer, they will seek me diligently,but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them. And the complacency of fools will destroy them; But whoever listens to me will dwell safely And will be secure without fear of evil.. (New King James Version.)
2 Timothy 3:- But know this, that in the last days perilous time will come; For men will be lovers of themselves; lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather then lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power, And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into the house holds and make captives of gullible woman loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of truth. Now as jannes and jambres resisted Moses (exodus 7:11), so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disaproved conerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was. But you have carefully followed my doctrine,manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perserverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at antioch at Iconium, at lystra-What persecutions i endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecutions. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things you have learned and been assured of, knowing that from childhood you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation and through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work... ( New King James Version).
2 Timothy 2:10-13:- Therefore I endure all for the sake of the elect, that they also may optain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with enteral glory. This is a faithful saying; For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him, If we endure, We shall also reign with Him, If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless. He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself...(New King James Version.) .......
If you have read this far well done! I know its alot. But it seems to explain it well. I have found No other explanation to explain why people who are smart and gaining knowledge about so many things, but still havnt gained anymore common sense then has always been, its even getting worse if anything. This does seem to explain it, you have to admit even if you dont fully believe in God....
