BAD THINGS HAPPENING TO GOOD PEOPLE!

t10        Why do bad things happen to good people?

This question has been bantered around so much in the minds of curious, searching hearts. Only when I see things from God’s point of view does this clear up to me. According to Jesus and other scriptures – BAD THINGS DON’T HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE!

Explanation:

Jesus replied to a man who called him good, “Why do you call me good, there is none good but my Father in Heaven.” (Mark 10:18) And again,- “There is none good, no not one. We have all sinned, and gone out of the way. and come short of the glory (goodness) of God.” (see Romans 3:23-24) Jesus knew that if we view things acccording to appearances from our view, then we would never understand such questions. It is error to judge according to our view of who is good and who is bad. We can only judge their deeds. We all need a saviour. That is why God sent Jesus. No one deserves redemption. That is why we are all “saved by grace, – not by our good deeds.

Conclusion:

Satan is alive and plenty active. According to John Chapter 10: v.10,  Satan is doing all the “stealing, killing and destroying.” He always takes advantage of our “lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)  Contrary to popular thinking; What we don’t know is what is hurting us. Satan has no mercy on anybody – old or young! When God binds him and throws him into “the bottomless pit,” (that time is nearing) there will be no more of this.

God is not interested in hurting us, even when he disciplines us through His word. It may cause deep conviction, and require some changes in our ways of thinking and doing, but it is only meant for our progress and victorious living in this life. “He sent His word and delivered them.” (Psalms) Bad things happen to all people, – but God can, and wants to turn them to something good.

If we study the scriptures and learn to think the thoughts of God, we will rise above these futile and limiting ways that plague the thoughts of “Fallen Man.” These points of ignorance and wrong thinking open a path for satan to come in and do his dirty work. (1st. Peter 5:8) “The foolishness (ignorance) of man perverts his way; and causes his heart to fret against the Lord.” (Proverbs 19:3) Remember this: God is a good God – and only God is always right!  – whether I understand it or not! * Selah! (think about it.)

We should never be offended at the ways and thoughts of God, – Never!  God is not mad at us,- neither does He do things to hurt us!

I READ THE BIBLE

*We win – if we won’t quit!*

t39      ... you rule in the midst of your enemies…” Ps.110:2

At one point I was ready to stop the world and get off, when that voice within said; “I won’t quit, – if you won’t.”

The story is told of a general in World War 11 who told his paratroopers to meet him at a determined location behind enemy lines. After jumping and meeting at that spot, the general enquired of those who came from the North, South, West and East. Each responded with the same answer, “Sir, we are totally surrounded by the enemy on every side.” To which the general replied, “OK, don’t let one of them get away.

To a believer, tough times are just opportunities for miracles! But we must expect them!

We are never without proper equipment to win. Yes, there are things that are unscriptural for us, as christians to do.

Examples:

I can’t take vengeance on my enemies, – but it’s not illegal for God God can, and He said He would!

I can’t take money for myself from someone by force, – but it’s not illegal for God... God can, and said He would,.. and added that He would put it into the hands of the believer!

I can’t determine the day of my departure, – but God can,- and does!

I can’t lie, –  but God said He would “… send strong delusion that they (your ungodly enemy) should believe a lie and be damned.” (11 Thes. 2:10-13)  The devil will lose, – we will win,- every time!

God never runs out of options to find a way to cause me to win. God can and will do things that would be unscriptural for us to do.

We have angels that are commisioned by God Almighty to watch over us. Sometime they take on a bodily form and other times they just function in supernatural and unseen ways. Some time we are aware of it, –  but most of the time we are not. The teen age giant killer of Israel named David noted…  “The lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places.”  Things just worked out!

Hold firm to what you do know, then trust God who can do anything but fail!

*He never quits – if we won’t! * Believe and obey the word of the one who created knowledge. Never resent what God says!  Be sure to keep praising the lord!

“Blessed be the Lord who has not given us a prey to their (the enemies) teeth..” (Ps 123:6)  Selah! GD

* NOBODY’S ARMS ARE LONG ENOUGH TO BOX WITH GOD *
