People today all over the world, as well as people of all the past, have and are crying out to God
in prayers, pleas and supplications, begging for help and answers to this
question. The question they ask is, "If You (God) are a loving God as Your
Word says You are, why then, do You allow all the suffering, sorrow, misery and early, untimely
deaths to take place over all the earth?" To really understand the
answer to this question, a person must begin at the beginning of life to
understand what God first said and commanded of man that would keep him from sin and
all of the untold suffering, sorrow, misery, and early deaths.
The very first fact of truth
and command that our Creator God gave to man in the beginning has been rejected
by all of mankind, Gen. 2:9, 16-17, 3:1-3. God in the beginning, commanded
man to choose the way of the tree of life as the way to live his life.
If man complied and submitted to His plan, he or she is promised by their
Creator God that they can live forever and have a happy and joyous life while
living on this earth. Choosing the tree of life is choosing the way of light
that illuminates the way of understanding to receive eternal life. It is
also the way of receiving God's Holy Spirit from God that is based on man's
fulfilling His demands of obeying His laws and commandments that
produces God's love, joy, peace, happiness and real success and fulfilled
lives and in the end, eternal life. God also distinctly, clearly, commanded
man in the beginning not to choose the way of the tree
of the knowledge of good and evil, which was another way of life that was
also set before man. The history of man, the Bible, proves that whatever God commands, man does the opposite.
God says in Gen. 3:3,
"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden (the forbidden tree), God has
said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die."
This means for man not to desire the fruit of this way of life that
this tree bears, for it will bring eventual suffering and death.
Here is where man committed the first sin, breaking the first commandment, and that sin was
the sin of idolatry, by man putting first what Satan, the god of this world, told him what he should and could
do by desiring and eating of the fruit of this tree, above what God, man's Creator, had commanded him not to do.
Satan told man that he could go ahead and eat from this God forbidden tree
and would not reap the fruit or wages of sin, resulting in suffering and death. Satan took on the role
of a minister to Adam and Eve, but just like his ministers are doing today,
Satan lied to man about man's fate by telling him he could go ahead and sin
and not have to reap the wages of sin.
Today, throughout Christianity and all
of its preaching as well as other religions, Satan is still telling man through
all of his ministers and priests, that he can continue to sin in his life
and behavior, that is, a man can live and continue daily in his sin as long as he
accepts the name of Jesus Christ, or the name of some other prophet and will
not reap the wages of his sins. Satan did not tell man that sin, disobeying
God's commands, brings on shame, suffering, misery, sorrow, death and early, premature
deaths. But man opted to choose the way of disobedience to his Creator God
by choosing the way of Satan and sin, which is the way of suffering. Sin brings
on suffering and suffering eventually brings on death. "There is a way which seems right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death," Pro. 14:12. Christ in His teaching tells man to "repent or perish."
Repent of following the way suggested by Satan, where man, through all
of his so called Christian governments with its so called Christian constitutions inspired by Satan, can make
his own laws and will not perish.
God in the beginning, set before man two choices of life, one
was the way God refers to as the tree of life, where God sets the laws for
man to live. The other choice was the way of Satan and sin, that God refers
to as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, or the forbidden tree, whereas
man can make up his own laws. But man's laws always conflicts with God's
laws, by compromising and permitting the breaking of God's laws and commandments
and will always bring suffering and death. God defines sin as the breaking
of His Laws and the end result of sin is suffering and death, Gen. 2:9,16-17.
This forbidden tree and its fruit,
appealed to man because it gives man the knowledge and freedom of deciding
for himself what laws that he thinks are good for his life and what laws
he decides to reject, rather than following God and what laws He has established
as good and of love, and what is evil for man's life. This way of the forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil, is the way of Satan, and is the way where man has established sin
in his life, and is the way of darkness and the way of death, with no promise of long life or eternal life, and in many cases
brings early, premature deaths. Again God repeats the same verse twice, "There is a way that seems right to man, but it will end in death," Pro. 16:25.
Choosing and eating from the fruit of this forbidden
tree produces the way of pain, suffering, misery, sorrow, curses, diseases,
and confusion about one's purpose in life. However, man today does not like
to relate all of his suffering, misery, sorrow, and pain as being the fruit
of him continuing to follow what Adam and Eve chose in the beginning, the
forbidden way of life. All men today by birth, are born into families following
this choice and who refuse to accept the truth, that all of man's suffering,
pain, misery, and sorrow is from this way that man has been choosing and
continues to follow since the very beginning of man. Man is bent on making
no real and everlasting changes in his life and because of this, suffers greatly for it. Read
it in Gen. 2:16-17.
Man accepts and believes a false teaching from all
of Satan's preaching ministers that suffering, pain, and sorrow is the way
of life that was created as part of man's life in the beginning, and there
is nothing that man can ever do to change his life from the suffering and
his continual sinning of following this way. This is all the lies of Satan
and his ministers and they all are going to have to pay dearly for all of
their lies and false teachings very, very soon. Read what God has foretold
He is going to do with men or women who continue to preach Satan's lies, and
who are preaching false doctrines and falsely representing Christ's name.
These are Satan's ministers, who also are stealing from people through tithing
and offerings to finance their deception of Satan's work, all in the name
of Jesus Christ, Zech. 5:3-4, Pro. 3:33, Rev. 21:8.
To clearly understand this wisdom, knowledge and understanding,
let us, for example purposes, look at a family situation that consists of
two, godly, righteous parents, who have come to be commandment keeping parents through Jesus Christ,
with children who are not yet godly and righteous, who have not come to see
the importance of commandment keeping as the only way of life to live. Their children are having a tough
time desiring to live their lives by their parents instructions that teaches
them to obey God's 10 commandments, which are God's standards of conduct
and behavior for man. These commandments teach a child how he is to love
God and his neighbor, which are the most sound, basic, outstanding, and loving
laws for any growing child, and for a God fearing society to live by anywhere in this
world. Keeping God's commandments are also requirements any child must
come to understand that he must commit himself to obey, in order to be accepted
by Christ, to receive forgiveness and eternal life, Deut. 6:1-2, 7, 17-18, 24-25, Mat. 19:17-19, Rom. 2:13.
Please study and meditate on these Scriptures.
One of the main reasons that children today have
a tough road in accepting righteousness as the way to live is, because of
all the world and religions around them are so evil and wicked, and rebellious
to authority, and actually teach against righteousness and
keeping God's 10 commandments. And so children today, because of this false
teaching and peer pressure, feel that they would not be accepted by others
of their age and most likely will not. It takes a strong and courageous
person or teenager to stand alone.
Today's young people cannot in person see Jesus
Christ, so He seems not real as being God's Son, who came to this earth
to give His life for them. They cannot understand that even Jesus Christ
definitely did not fit in, nor was He accepted in man's society, and also
suffered great persecution and eventually killed. They cannot see how Christ
brought Good News of salvation as a tremendous benefit and everlasting goal
that a young person and all people have to work and fight for in their life,
because of Satan and all his evil Christ professing churches. So they can
not see the need to live righteous lives and accept Jesus Christ and His
forgiveness for sin as the only way of receiving salvation. Christ is the
only door that anyone can enter for receiving eternal life, John 10:1-10,
but a door that demands obedience to God's law as a requirement, Mat. 19:16-19,
Mat. 5:17-19, John 14:21; 15:10-14, I John 5:2-3. Any minister who tries
to refute these Scriptures as proof about commandment keeping being a requirement
for being forgiven by Christ, had better read about his and his family's
fate in Zech. 5:3-4.
So today's young people look at God's 10
commandments, as today's society and churches look at God's 10 commandments,
as nothing more than a historical document, and not as the way to obedience
to their God, not as the way to righteousness and not as the way to be accepted
by Jesus Christ, to live their life in order to qualify him or her to receive
Christ's forgiveness for sin to receive eternal life. Christ's Word tells
us in Rom. 2:13 "For not he hearers
of the law (God's 10 commandments and statutes), are just (justified, forgiven)
before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified." It is
not the keeping of the commandments that forgives one sins, only accepting Jesus Christ
and His shed blood can do that, but keeping God's commandments is the basis
for being accepted for forgiveness by Jesus Christ, if it is not, then Scripture would be contradictory. Notice the words in the
above verse, it is "the doers of the law, (the keepers of God's 10 commandments) that shall be forgiven, justified, and be accepted by Jesus Christ."
Yet, today's Christ professing ministers throw this Scripture and other Scriptures
like it to the way side and continue to teach their faith only salvation,
with no law keeping requirement as the fruit of their repentance, to be accepted
by Christ for one's forgiveness of sin.
The reason that today's children and young people are having
a tough time living by the commandments pertaining to the tree of life is
all because the world around them seems to be having a ball, a great life,
following the forbidden tree, following the ways of rebellion and sin, all
following the ways of pleasures for the moment. All of this is following
the ways of Satan and his ways of sin and darkness. Parents and their children
cannot connect the dots of following this God forbidden way which causes and brings on suffering
and early and untimely deaths. The words of Christ in Luke 13:3, "Repent or Perish" has no value and meaning to them.
Besides this, today's young people have been misled
by all of today's professing Christian preaching ministers, who constantly
and consistently teach and preach to them that sin, daily sinning, is the
way of life and will always be a part of their life and nobody, including
Christians, can live their lives without sin, which is a Satanic lie! How
can such liars escape the damnation of hell and the great fire of the tribulation?
So this forbidden way, with all of its evil fruit, appears appealing
to children and parents lustful eyes. Read about Adam and Eve's looking at
and choosing this forbidden way as it was given in Gen. 3:6, "And when the woman saw that the tree was
good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired
to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat." The is the first example of
a weak husband, not being a true leader of his home, to make a righteous and sound decision and just look at the evil seed
that this sinful decision has caused to be sown all over the world.
God throughout His Word, compares eating and drinking as
eating and drinking of His Spiritual Word, to receive eternal life as bearing
good fruit, and not as some particular fruit from a tree that bears fruit
such as an apple and etc. The fruit was something that soured their heart
and mind and caused them to turn from what God commanded of them, to following
the ways and commands of Satan. It was the fruit of sin and this fruit appeals
to weak people set on following the way of sin. Christ says one must be fed
on the milk and meat of God's Word, not fed on man's and Satan's word and
fruit of following the forbidden tree, as produced in most all churches as
most are fed on today. Study Christ's words in Mat. 7:15-23. "You shall know them by their fruits."
And Christ says that He is going to reject these false ministers and warns
His true followers to be aware of their evil fruit and wicked works that
teach and work iniquity, teaching no commandments and law a true Christian
has to keep to be accepted for salvation, verse 23.
The very first children, Adam and Eve, who were
created on this earth, rebelled against their Godly parents, parents who
are God and who said We created them in our image, Gen. 1:26. But in their
children's minds, and as it is today in the minds of parents, both
could not and cannot grasp that this forbidden way will bear
all the fruit of suffering, sorrow, much pain and even premature death
. This suffering, pain, misery, and sorrow is all caused by all the sins
of following this forbidden way, consisting of such family destructive sins
today as people using mind changing drugs, from over and under the counter
use, excess alcohol use, and committing the sin of lusting for naked flesh,
pornography which God condemns, Lev. 18:1-30, and fornication of every sexual
perversion, and all leading to other crimes such as robbery, violence, child
abortion, sexual child abuse and family destroying adulterers and adulteresses,
bringing about divorces, all to the destruction of families. All of this
is the fruit of following the forbidden tree and creates great suffering and
misery, James 4:4.
Lev. 18:1-30 says, "You shall not uncover any flesh that is not a man's female wife"
These sins all seem to be so pleasurable and enticing for the moment. But
these Godly parents, as it is with any godly parents today, seem unable to get
their children to understand that these ways of Satan, are the ways of suffering,
sorrow, and pain, which are all the ways of the forbidden tree. This is not
the way to live, even though all of their children's friends are living that
way, as well as their parents and all seem and appear to be having
a good time, happy time for the moment, big weekend parties, even in light
of, example after example, of suffering, pain, sorrow and early deaths
All of the many examples of what is happening in
suffering lives today and in the past, all the suffering, pain, sorrow, and
early deaths does not seem to have much effect on people, parents, and children
today as it pertains to the forbidden way of life that God commanded man
not to choose. Following this forbidden way and its way of much suffering
and sorrow, is not causing people to ask questions about their lives and to examine
and change their lives from the ways of suffering, pain and death, to the
ways of real joy and real everlasting happiness and everlasting life.
A good understanding have all who keep God's commandments, understanding
why there is suffering, pain, misery, early deaths and sorrow. Study Proverbs
Some verses from Proverbs 3 is verses 1-8 "My son, forget
not my law, (God's 10 commandments), but let thine heart keep my commandments:
For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to you. Let
not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck: write them upon
the table of your heart: So shall you find favor and good understanding
in the sight of God and men. Trust in the Lord with all your heart: and lean
not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He
shall direct your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the Lord, and
depart from evil, It shall be health to your body, and marrow (strength)
to your bones." And in verse 33 God says, " the curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but He blesses the home of the just."
All of mankind have been born into
ungodly families who are following this forbidden tree, the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, and is the tree or way of life that leads to
much suffering, sorrow, pain, misery and death, the way of darkness that
provides no real purpose, no everlasting goals, and no worthwhile planning
for one's life that will reap everlasting benefits. People following this
way of darkness, which is basically all people, basically all families,
and yes, basically all churches and their congregations, are continuing to
follow this forbidden way. It is because families and all their pastors
and preachers continue to teach that suffering and sorrow is something that
nobody can really understand, nor can they do anything about it and is the
way of life and sin that man is destined to live. What they are saying is
that they really don't know the answer to suffering. Satan loves these
lies and teaching from his ministers, because eventually these lies will
bring suffering and death to his ministers and all of his people which is
the goal of Satan. People today in churches do not know, nor will they believe
they are in fact worshipping the god of this world, Satan, II Cor 4:1-4,
II Cor. 11:13-15.
This is the way of life that is evil and a way of life not exposed in today's
religions because Satan doesn't want you to know the answers to suffering. Yet
it is the way that all people continue to choose and live by the fruit and
ways of this forbidden tree, and so don't really understand what life is
all about and why there is so much suffering, and what is the connection
of suffering with this way of life man has chosen to live. God's Word says
Satan has the whole world deceived, Rev. 12:9. Man does not believe this!
God, in the beginning, said this will be the way of man "unless he (man) puts forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever,
" Gen. 3:22. This means that man can change things, that he can do
works in his life that can stop all the suffering, prevent the sorrow and
pain, if he really desires and sees the need to do so. He can arise, repent, come out
of all the deception of Satan, sin, which is the cause of all the darkness and suffering in
Suffering and pain to people
desiring understanding, in reality can be a true friend, a loving friend.
Suffering and pain are red flags that go up telling a person that something
is wrong or that the way of life he is living is not the true way that God
commanded man to follow and live in the beginning and needs close attention
to make a change in his direction. This attention and change could first
be in one's health and diet. This change can help man to begin to feel well,
healthy, and be more energetic, more able to study and pray. One must come
to educate himself about all the deceiving food that is accepted as good
food, (but most is not healthy food), in order to love himself, to keep himself healthy,
if he is ever going to be able to learn to love anyone else. God says love
your neighbor as yourself. As Proverbs 3:8 says, "It (following God's way) shall be health to your body and strength to your bones."
and secondly, a change in the evil way of life and behavior that he is
living, needs to be changed to a righteous life, to begin keeping God's 10
commandments, to love God and to love his neighbor as himself. All of this
understanding is the beginning of following the way of the tree of life that
God commands. If a person does this, Pro. 3:4, "You shall find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man."
The way of the tree of life provides understanding
all about one's life, one's purpose in life and all about what is causing
all the suffering, pain and early deaths. The way of the tree of life
gives one the desire for truth and understanding, the truth about all the
lies about the food one takes into their body and mind. The truth exposes
all the food industry's deceptions in the accepted foods man eats, and all
the deceptions in man's spiritual food he takes into his body, mind and heart
that is put before him by the food industry and by preachers and people in
today's religions and Christianity. Most all of both are big liars in what
they advertise and what they preach. Choosing the way of the tree of life
gives man purpose and value and direction to his life. The way of the tree
of life guides man's feet out of the darkness of confusion into the true
light of understanding, providing a clear path and a real fulfilled purpose
for his life. A person who accepts Jesus Christ is accepting the tree of
life. He who accepts the name of Jesus Christ (His authority) must depart from his sins and
darkness to be accepted by Him. Jesus Christ was sent by the Father "to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his sins, his iniquities," Acts 3:26
So the very first fact of
truth that every person needs to understand, who desires the answer to this
question of Why God Allows Suffering, is; that unless a person truly understands
the real purpose and goal for his life, which was created by His Creator God
for his or her life, and is pursuing that purpose and goal with all of their
heart and life, then they will not understand Why God Allows Suffering
! People come and go and perish, living out their life span, never understanding
their purpose and goal of their lives and hence, Why God Allows Suffering,
and early deaths. All of man's and religion's vain and useless works will
be burned up in the end, I Cor. 3:13. Only the truth and works of any person
based on truth in God's Word, will be retained by God's chosen and resurrected
in the end and judgment.
Man's suffering, pains and early deaths comes from diseases
of every kind, auto accidents of every age, babies being murdered in the womb,
or poisoned shortly out of the womb, or crimes of robbery, rape, and murder committed against and taking
seemingly innocent people's lives of every age. Or great suffering from man created, senseless
wars, killing and maiming of young lives for all of their lives and all for
ungodly reasons, or the kidnapping and stealing young boys and girls
for ungodly, wicked, perverted and abusing, sexual purposes. These are all great sins against
God and His law and sins against one's neighbor that soon will bring death to such evil doers. God's command and judgment that the wages for sin is death
will soon be carried out and fulfilled by Jesus Christ, Rom. 6:23, against
all of these evil, wicked people for all the suffering that they have created
in people's lives.
All of this evil and wickedness creates great suffering
on all of man's society and world, and comes from man following and choosing
to live his life by the way of the forbidden tree, the forbidden way that bears
all this fruit of sin, evil, wickedness and darkness. God is not in any of
this because evil man is all against what God first commanded for man, and so God
has chosen not to have an open ear to all the pleas of this suffering, pain and
sorrow. Isa. 59:1-2 helps one to understand this situation and God's answer
to suffering where God says, "Behold the Lord's hand is not shortened
that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your
iniquities (your sins) have separated between you and your God, and your
sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Read study also Isa. 1:4-20, where it says beginning in verse 4
"Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children
that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the
Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Verse 15,
And when you spread forth your hands, (supplications in prayer) I will hide mine eyes from you: yea,
when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Read this whole chapter for more detail.
Other examples of suffering,
hopelessness, misery, and death with no answers come upon seemingly
innocent people who are struck and killed by lightning, or seemingly innocent
people killed by tornadoes, fierce winds, earthquakes, volcanos, tsunamis,
or other like disasters. These people are killed like two examples of untimely
deaths Jesus Christ gave in His Word, where a wall fell on 18 people, killing
them all, or where some people were going about with their religious works,
sacrificing and were killed. Christ asked the people the question about these
deaths and suffering, "Were these
people more sinners than their neighbors," Luke 13:1-5? Christ said, "Are
these people sinners above all men?" Christ said, "No, except you repent,
you shall all likewise perish." What are people to repent of, so they will
not likewise perish in some freakish accident, or other like time and chance accidents that
are killing more and more people everyday and bringing great suffering, sorrow, hopelessness and grief upon
family members and close friends?
Repentance throughout the Scripture
has always been to stop sinning, change one's behavior, stop breaking God's law, which is the 10
commandments, statutes, and judgments. Jesus Christ is telling all
people unless they fully repent of transgressing God's laws, all of His
Ten Commandments, His statutes, that all people will in time and chance,
perish. There is no protection for any sinners from perishing when time and
chance circumstances comes upon their life if they are not doing what God
commands in His Word. God will not protect people who will not submit to
the way of life that He has commanded for all to choose, and who have rejected
His way of righteous living.
Time and chance deaths and accidents come upon people
living outside of God's plan and living by the forbidden tree, which is basically
all people. Yes, there are clear, God given, answers to all of people's suffering
and pain, but people are not being told so today by their highly worshipped
false minister or false priest that they follow and even worship. Today's
professing ministry are in the ministry for all the money that they can receive
from their sheeple, and their great desire to raised up before the people,
and still are not able to give answers to people's suffering, misery
and curses and no clear understanding even to understanding Christ's Gospel,
His wonderful Good News plan of salvation. This is one of reasons why they
took the TV show "The Book of Daniel" off the air because it was exposing
today's Christianity for what it really is, an evil tool of Satan. Today's
professing Christians could not stand to see all of their sins protrayed
before their very eyes, so by their popular demand had the film banned. However, there is hope for those that will change, Zeph. 2:2-3.
God is not a respector of
persons or nations. God will bless any person or nation that looks to Him
as their only True God, their True Provider, their True Protector, and
as the true Sustainer of all that person or nation needs. Every nation
and every person who does not look to God for all of their needs can expect
oppression, depression, misery, pain and suffering from evil men and their satanic governments
and satanic religions, and yes, even from today's accepted Christianity. They
can also expect, because of man's greed, his evil and wicked heart, (Jer. 17:9)
and all of his deceptions, a prosperity that dries up or goes sour, ill health,
diseases and long continuance of diseases and suffering of every description
and early untimely deaths with its young people, of babies in, or just out
of the womb, young adults dying in vain from diseases and useless wars. All
this brings on untold miserable suffering. Conditions on this earth will
get so wicked, evil, that it will take the great tribulation with all of
its great suffering and death, to cause a number of people to come to see
their sins and come to a deep repentance, Rev. 7:9-14.
God has created all people to be
given eternal life in His Kingdom if they set their heart and determine with
their mind to live their life by the way God commands. God created every
person to walk, and to live their life by Christ's Word, His Spirit
and His Ten Commandments of love, which will produce not only love, but peace
of mind, real joy and happiness and purpose for his life. Man must have God's
Spirit and His Word in him to live God's way, which God refers to as The
Way of the Tree of Life.
When people transgress God's
Ten Commandments, whether they are interested in fulfilling their purpose
for life and receiving eternal life or not, all still will suffer from the
transgression of any of God's Ten Commandments. This is a second main reason
why people from all walks of life suffer and are dying early in their lives.
It is all because God's Ten Commandments when broken, have power and authority
over people's lives. People's ignorance of God's law and commandments does
not free one from the law's authority and judgment and suffering over their
life. All of man's misery, pain and suffering is the result of man having
first chosen the forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
which God commanded man not to choose and secondly this causes man to reject
Jesus Christ and choose the way of transgression of God's Commandments which
is the way of sin, darkness, and death.
When a person looks at all the
suffering and pain, misery and darkness that our society is engulfed
in, it is always the result of man continuing to live his life by the forbidden
tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the tree of darkness for
man. This second cause is, by the fact that man does not recognize
and chooses not to follow the true teachings of the true Jesus Christ of
Scripture and His command to accept His true Gospel, that is based on one's
repentance to keep His Ten Commandments. They instead choose to obey
one of the false christs that Satan has through his ministers, raised up
before them, a false christ of no law to keep to take the place of the real
Jesus Christ of law that must be kept to be accepted by Him, Mat. 24:24.
When a man's life is set and deeply entrenched
in the ways of the forbidden tree, which is the way of the flesh, the way
of the carnal mind and human nature, then the true Jesus Christ and His Ten
Commandments become an enemy to man and his lifestyle. Read and study, Romans
Who is God holding responsible
for suppressing the true way of God and holding back His truth in their unrighteousness,
and is who God says His wrath will be against in His coming day of judgment?
Read and study this statement in Romans 1:17-18. It is all of today's preachers,
Satan's ministers, confessing to be Christ's ministers, but at the same time
teaching against the true Jesus Christ and the keeping of His Ten Commandments.
They are responsible for teaching a way and lifestyle that God's commandments
are not important. This produces all the darkness and suffering upon this
nation today. They, in their proud ignorance and arrogance, teach the continual following
and bearing the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which
is the way of darkness and evil, the way of sin, the way of ignorance that
nobody can overcome their sins. Today preachers are lying to the people.
God pronounces a curse upon all liars, who swear falsely in His name
and are stealing from the people all in His name, Zech. 5:3-4.
God's Ten Commandments are God's
rule, law and God's standards for man's behavior, and if they are kept,
constitute obedience and love to God and blessings in one's life. However,
if they are rejected as they have been by today's Christianity as not being
God's requirements that must be obeyed to be accepted to receive Christ's
sacrifice and forgiveness, then Christ rejects all such people as rebellious
sinners. Today, all across this country, God's Ten Commandments have totally
been rejected but now are even being rejected as an historical document.
Do people ever think what God their Creator thinks about this total rejection
of His laws of love and by such evil behavior are in reality rejecting God
the Father and His true Son, Jesus Christ? Can they really expect God to
hear their prayers about all of their suffering?
How can any church, along with their pastor, expect
not to be the recipients of Christ's coming wrath by following and being
a part of such Satanic teachings? How can any person, whether a church member
or not, expect to escape suffering, pain, disease and the sword now and at
Christ's coming judgment, who will not repent to acknowledge and obey God's
Ten Commandments? How can one expect that Jesus Christ will accept them if
they are living in disobedience to God's 10 commandments? Jesus Christ as
the One and only true Forgiver of sin, as the only Savior of one's life will not
forgive if there is no real and meaningful repentance.
ministry actually teaches against the keeping of God's Ten Commandments
as a requirement in one's repentance, as a requirement to receive forgiveness
of sin and in one being accepted by Jesus Christ for justification, and as
a requirement for receiving salvation. Rejecting God's 10 commandments as
a requirement for receiving forgiveness of one's sins is a false teaching
being committed by today's professing Christians and their christ-professing
ministers and qualifies both as false Christians and false ministers headed
for disaster. Christ says beware of the false prophets and false ministers,
Mat. 24:24, who are workers of iniquity, no law to keep, Mat. 7:23.
Commandment keeping does not forgive
sin, only acceptance of Christ's blood can forgive sin, but repentance, with
change and agreement or covenant that one will set his life to keep God's
Ten Commandments, is required by Jesus Christ to be accepted for His forgiveness
of one's sins, to be justified of his sins, and to be given His grace, which
includes God's Spirit, and eternal life, Rom. 2:12-13, Rom. 3:20,28. This
is the Gospel, the good news of how one can be truly forgiven and be saved
from the penalty of sin, which is the root cause of all suffering. Today's
professing church members do not know what is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ
and thereby are not true members of the body of Jesus Christ, will continue
in their suffering, sorrow, pains and premature deaths from diseases, and
other such chance and circumstances, curses and disasters.
God's teaching throughout His Word
is, if you obey God's Commandments, to show that you really do love God and
Jesus Christ, and one's neighbor, you will be blessed, II Chron. 7:14 and a nation will
be blessed. If you don't obey God's Commandments, God plainly says to all in
Deut. 11:26-28, "You will be cursed." "Behold I set before you this
day a blessing and a curse: a blessing, if you obey the commandments of the
Lord your God, which I command you this day: and a curse, if you will not
obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way
which I command you this day to go after other gods, which you have not known."
Today people do not obey God's commandments so they are under a curse of
suffering, misery, confusion, hopelessness, diseases of every description,
greater violence every day, and so God has a deft ear to their pleas and
crying because they will not repent.
When a nation comes
under God's curse, that nation and all its people will suffer greatly! A
nation and its people who are under God's curse, is given over to Satan and
all of his deceptions, and all of his devices, schemes, and tricks, and bringing
ever imaginable disease upon everyone's body and soul. Satan uses the gods
people worship, such as the god of perverted sex, to bring early death upon
the people's young children while they are still in the womb and even shortly
after they come out of the womb through a multitude of shots and vaccinations.
Satan inspired many men who become pedophiles to bring great suffering, abusing,
torture and death upon the young boys and girls of the nation. In many cases,
Satan inspires priests, ministers and pastors to become these evil pedophiles
across the land and churches. They sell themselves out as his ministers and
become prostitutes in a way of a faith that is suppose to represent Christianity.
What a shame and disgrace that people still follow such evil people and ministers.
When God sets a curse upon the land, He permits
Satan to use men to teach lies and great crimes and bring wars into people's
lives where their young boys and girls are used to die prematurely for man's
lust, or be greatly maimed for the rest of their lives fighting man's wars
and his purposes for wars, to increase the wealth of men, James 4:1-4. When
Satan is turned loose upon a nation's people, he brings all kinds of freaky
accidents upon the land, great devastations and life perishing disasters.
Satan is the great perpetrator of all suffering, and is permitted by our
Creator God to fulfill His will of bringing curses upon the land where the
people will not repent of their sins. Satan is the god of this world who
leads people in their worship of him and all of his evil and at the same
time deceive them in thinking they are worshipping the true Christ.
Read about what happened to Job and what God permitted
Satan to do in his life and family to help him see his sin, believing that
his righteousness was above God's righteousness, Job 32:1-2. And in Job 35:1-2
"Elihu spake moreover, and said , "Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God's."
People of this great professed "Christian" nation of America are thinking
the same thing about their self righteousness, that "their righteousness
is more than and above God's righteousness." They believe their Christianity,
that they have faith in, is above what the true Jesus Christ declares as being true Christianity.
However, God is not blind to their self righteousness and all of their great
sins and will bring upon them and the nation the same judgment that He permitted
to be brought upon Job and his family, great tribulation, boils and diseases
of every description, devastation in the weather, robberies, violent deaths,
and the drying up of all of one's possessions, producing great suffering
and death on people's lives and their families. This drying of man's prosperity has
already begun with terrible high prices for food and gasoline for traveling
to work and will only get much worse as God has foretold it will, Rev. 6:4-10.
All suffering comes upon people because
they continue to follow the way of life, represented as the forbidden tree,
the corrupt tree that bears the fruit of sin and suffering. This is all because
they refuse to obey the only true God and refuse to choose His way,
the good tree of life, which is the way that bears the fruit of understanding,
the true purpose of life. Choosing the tree of life is choosing the way of
love, joy, peace of mind and life fulfillment and opens one's mind to really
understand why God allows suffering. However, to choose and get started
in this way of God, that God calls the tree of life, one must repent of the
ways and fruit of the forbidden tree that man lives by in his life. Man must
cut down this corrupt tree that is dominating his life. Check out what Christ
says about the evil tree and the good in Mat. 7:17-20.
One must desire
the way of obedience to God's Ten Commandments, and accept Jesus Christ
as the only Forgiver of one's sins and as the only Savior of one's life.
This clears the path of getting rid of pain and suffering and confusion that
is dominating people's lives and provides the path for peace now and eternal life later,
Ps. 119:97-143. Study and meditate on this whole chapter of Ps. 119.
The writer of this article
does not have any inherent wisdom of his own to know the answers of
why God allows suffering, but God does, and this writer totally relies on
God and His Word for the answers. People write to condemn and judge this writer
for his articles as if I came up with these words that are making known what
is God's will, and what God commands in His Word. God's teachings and Word
is God's, not mine! God says in James 4:11-12, "Speak not evil one of another,
brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother, and judges his brother (as
being evil because he teaches complete adherence to God's law) speaks evil
of the law and judges the law: but if you judge the law, you are not
a doer of the law, but a judge." So the very evil that people
judge this writer for, are guilty of the same. God says that anyone that does
not do the law, meaning who does not keep and obey God's law, God's 10 commandments,
is breaking God's law. This means that this person is an evil, wicked, an unforgiven
sinner, who will cause suffering to come upon himself and others and will
perish. It is love to warn people of this truth and fact of Scripture,
James 5:19-20, and James 2:10-11.
One must study God's Word and law and do what it commands and
believe what His inspired Word teaches. Everything else, man's books and
all of man's wisdom, man's knowledge, man's opinions about suffering and death is all in vain and without the true answers
to this overwhelming problem and curse. Only God knows and each one of us
must come to know the True God and His Word if we truly desire to come to
know "Why God Allows Suffering." Remember what God says in Ecclesiastes 12:11-14. Much study in all books other than the Bible is weariness of the flesh.
"Of making many books there is no end: and much study is a weariness of the
flesh. Let us hear the whole conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and
keep His commandments: for this is the whole man. For God shall bring every
work into judgment, with ever secret thing , whether it is good , or whether
it be evil."
