“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.” Matthew 11:12.
The world should have been a better place for everyone but due to greed, crime, and violence which have taken over the world, there is no peace.
People want to live the way they want. They often ask, who is God to tell me what to do? You may not see the importance of God, but never underestimate the prophecies in the Bible. “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
Atheists have gambled with God and have failed. They swallow their shame, using the existence of crime, violence, suffering and evil to challenge God’s existence.
God will not reveal Himself to you because He is a spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth. The fact that many don’t believe in God, they will never experience His spiritual gift.
God shouldn’t be blamed for yesterday’s and today’s violence. Whatever we are experiencing today were caused by man, not God because man has forgotten God’s warning, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7.
It’s rather unfortunate that innocent people are often caught up in crimes committed by evil people but still, there is redemption and salvation for the man because God knows His people and he will never disappoint them as promised or said in the Bible.
We should be prepared to pass through what is yet to come because what we are witnessing today is just the tip of the iceberg. Many people will suffer for nothing and die of crimes they aren’t responsible.
The evil and the unrighteous will always live in fear among the erection of wrong statues and monuments but God has a promise for them. “For He shall surely bless the righteous and with favour He shall protect them.” Psalm 5:12.
