Satan demonstrates his intense hatred for God in the brutality he is inflicting on man who is created in the image and likeness of God. Seeking to mar and distort the beauty of God’s masterpiece both in the horrific suffering of unimaginable anguish we are seeing around the world and growing at an alarming rate here in the USA, but also in the terrible distortion of the minds of human beings which have been so Satanically deceived into inflicting such evil upon others.
Some have asked “How can God allow such things to happen?” I respectfully suggest that this misses the point completely! The question should be framed quite differently: “How could any human being do such things?” How could any human being crucify or behead a child? How could any human being slaughter the innocent?
We question the morality of God in the face of our own depraved behavior, and in our self-deception elevate our own baseless morality above His.
The entire world is sinking into chaos and irrationality while viewing it like a movie in some twisted form of entertainment. Like detached observers in a different dimension.
God DOES see, God DOES care. God IS just.
We reject Him on a daily basis and then wonder where He is when we think He should be there to prevent of change the behavior of someone else! For someone who has come to know God through Jesus Christ and walks with Him on a daily basis, the incredible workmanship of God in the soul of man is seen, even through the corruption, evil, and wicked destruction that Satan has brought upon man, and he awaits the promise of Christ’s return to carry out the justice His Character demands.
I pray it is soon. But even if it is not, my faith has found a resting place!!
