Is This What God Purposed for me and for the rest of mankind?
Read any newspaper. Look at television, or listen to the radio. There are so many stories of crime, war, and terrorism! Think about your own troubles. Perhaps illness or the death of a loved one is causing you great distress. You may feel like the good man Job, who said that he was “filled with dishonor and affliction.”—Job 10:15.
THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT GOD WILL BRING ABOUT THESE CHANGES ON THE EARTH.
“He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”—Revelation 21:4
“The lame will leap like the deer.”—Isaiah 35:6
“The eyes of the blind will be opened.”—Isaiah 35:5
“All those in the memorial tombs will . . . come out.”—John 5:28, 29
“No resident will say: ‘I am sick.’”—Isaiah 33:24
“There will be an abundance of grain on the earth.”—Psalm 72:16
The New Testament writers faced Roman oppression imprisonment suffering persecution and death for their beliefs. But there is never any hint of complaint in their letters. Rather they tell us to give thanks in everything and to rejoice always. That is because they were living for Jesus their Lord.
What you see now is work in progress. Evil was defeated by Jesus in the cross but that victory is not yet fully experienced on earth. But one day evil and all opposition to God will be judged and sentenced and put away. The way God defeated evil was to come in person to show us his love and grace and accept the punishment we deserve. Jesus accepted suffering beyond that which anyone has experienced. The origin of evil is rejection of God as our Lord. God does use suffering for our ultimate good for teaching and for development of character and for making us call on him and turn to him. All things work together for good to those that live God.
Who is the author of confusion,sickness and diseases?Is it not Satan?.Satan incites evil minded people to cause havoc on innocent people.In all, Satan receives part of the blame, evil minded people who always choose evil over good also receive part of the blame. God will fulfill all his promises for those who keep their faith in him.Pursue righteousness, love your neighbor and hatred,resentment,ill-treatment and fight will be a foreign language in your house.
Remember, all these things will happen after the End of Days, not before. When Messiah comes at the end of times then evrything you just said will be a regular thing in our lives. In the meantime we have to live with all those horrible things like war, thombs, suffering, crying and sorrow in times of trouble, sickness, etc. Even with all of these difficult things in our lives, we should look for the most positive things like laughter, chuch's lives, family and friends, laugh of children, the beauty of the world, the seas and the sky at night, the best in life, etc.
