When conditions on earth are bad like they are today, people tend to ask, where is God, as if he is supposed to physically be somewhere nearby.
God is in heaven where he should be, for that is his home. God has angels coming to the earth to survey the conditions here and report back to him. Read on to find out where is God in all of this confusion.
God is much too intelligent for us to understand his actions. His way of thinking is much higher than ours. God knows everything that happens on earth down to the smallest details. If any of us do anything against God’s will, he will know it and he will punish that person. Here is what God said about the people on this earth who do evil things – Deuteronomy 32:35 It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.”
The people whose hearts and minds are filled with hatred, racism, jealousy, and evil cannot help themselves, so everyone should prey for them although some of them even called themselves Christians. Evidently, they have not read or heard – 1 John 4:20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. If there is any human on earth who you do not love, then you hate God and God already knows your heart.
This is for the people who may be killed by these hateful racist people – Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Because these hateful racist people are not going to stop killing people until God changes them or kills them. In the meantime, you ask Jesus to come into your life and change your ways so that you will be able to go to heaven when and if they kill you.
You are probably saying why can’t I pray to Jesus to protect me from these hateful racist people, you can and you should do that. But just because you prayed to Jesus to protect you from these hateful racist people does not mean he will stop them from killing you. If you are a true believer, he may want you in heaven now, and if you are not a true believer, then more than likely you will go someplace else.
Jesus is in the business of saving souls, that is why he came to earth, his number one priority is to encourage every human to call on him for salvation because you can only get eternal life through Jesus. If we could get into heaven any other way, then Jesus may change his priorities.
Yes, Jesus knows about the coronavirus, and what he is doing about it is beyond our scope of understanding. He probably did not create this disease, and if he did, it was for a reason, You can pray to Jesus to protect you from this disease, and he will if you are a true believer, but Jesus knows you have heard and/or been told to wear a mask when out in public. So, if you are a true believer or not and you go out in public around people who may have this virus, without wearing a mask, there is a good chance you may get infected with this virus.
I hope this post brings you some comfort, and if you don’t already have Jesus in your life, ask him to come into your life today. You don’t have to stop doing all of the things you do today, all at once, and Jesus will help you get rid of all the bad stuff in your life.
