So Where Is God?
Everywhere I go now I am hearing there is no God and where's God at then? This world is falling apart, children are dying, war, starvation on & on.
Basically everything the bible says will come on us if we don't harken to God. God says we will be broken without remedy. Only God can restore broken mankind. Jesus Christ is the one, and only ONE that God sent to die for your sins, my sins and the whole worlds' sin. Sin is what separates us.God has given us a way out, so none of us will have any excuse.
No excuses will be accepted. You won't have no ground to stand on when you are standing in front of God saying " the Christians this and the Christians that". You don't even have a clue what a Christian is or how to discern the real thing yet.
Discrediting God's people and their help, prayers & love. Jesus sends us out to bare the message of his love & to reconcile the world to God.
How is your sin different than a Christian's sin? Since there's rocks being thrown?
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her . . .
When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
No difference one sin is just as vile as the next. The only difference between us and you is that - We are broken people with a remedy & restoration that Jesus gives freely. And you all are broken but refuse to be redeemed, restored and forgiven. The untaken remedy.
Fools mock at making amends for sin,
but goodwill is found among the upright. Prov 14:9
"Woe to the obstinate children," declares the LORD, "to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin; Is 30:1
So let's get this straight. I don't have to prove God to you. You have to prove it to yourself. Seek him for yourself. THIS IS WHY you seem to have this passionate hate. Or shall I say unbelief & even confusion about God. Constantly stirring within you.
- Endless debates & insincere efforts won't quiet this within you. Seek him in the only way he has given mankind to find him.
10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. 11I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. 12When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou
Wrong Choices, Otherwise known as SIN
I am not here to say God is going to strike you down in some HA, HA - You are going to get it one day tone. My real tone is that God loves you so much. That He is penetrating your heart, to get you to understand His love. You may not believe today. But many will in the future.
- There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death. Prov 14:12
I do understand you all have a mess of reasons you do not want to seek or follow God. But it is in error & misunderstanding.
You're only looking at the problems. A lot of the times you add to it, not looking to the solution.
The suffering in this world comes from what sin has produced. All of the sudden Christians caused it or God! Not people sinning & making wrong choices!
You know dying children is wrong, innocent people dying & starving is wrong. Can you, will you see the correlation between all of the problems and the lack of reverencing God & sin? Our choices?
Saying If there was a God than he would not let all this happen. Or if that is the kind of God you serve - I want no part of it. Well did you ever think that if the people in this world would seek their creator, instead of rebelling against Him. We could learn the right way & all this suffering would start to fade away? HMMM?
Maybe, just maybe do you think we might be the ones' causing the problem? All of mankind? We don't fully know how to love or do right all the time. It takes God to help us, lead us, forgive us, pick us up when we totally blow it!
- Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin condemns any people. Prov 14:34
So in short you're asking for sin to be gotten rid of. In order for these wrongs to stop. Than God is going to have to wipe all sin off the earth. Kinda like Sodom and Gomorrah or like when he sent the flood on earth.
God has promised to never do these things again. No more destroying people that make bad choices. Who are rebelling. Therefore causing & allowing the suffering. Until the return of Jesus.
God wants us all to have time to choose Jesus. And Jesus is life. So when we say we want it to end. All the suffering that is.
Than the only solution to this problem is for Jesus to return. And for us to seek God & do what is right & he will straighten our paths.
God is the only one that has promised to keep us safe & in peace. The only one who can.
Jesus tells us “in this world you will have trouble, but take heart for I have overcome the world.” John 16
Are you asking God to just stop some of the sin? Or the ones that bother you?
So you are not asking for anything really. Because you are not even willing to see your own sins first.
Our own vision and understanding is blurred. When our sins are not addressed and repented for.
God's love, grace, mercy and forgiveness in Jesus is the ONLY cure. Once you have been forgiven and the weight has been taken off your shoulders. You will see and know the affects of Christ's love for you. It will cause you to be grateful for all things everyday.
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:23-27
If You Want To Know God
If you want anything from God - you must accept Jesus. And expect God to answer your prayers of faith. Believing that God is faithful to those who attentively seek Him. You can not say it's all in vain & get any results.
Believing is a choice not a feeling.
If God was to be God as you describe, powerless and unjust. Than we wouldn't have a free will.
There would be no choice in the matter in doing right or wrong, good consequences or bad, sowing or reaping.
There would be no honorable or respectable way for mankind to follow.
It would be a world without standards. Without Godly wisdom as our boundary and path to walk on.
We would lack the source of our life. A relationship with God All Mighty. Who does perform miracles to those who seek him through Jesus Christ. And in his mercy some that don't know him yet.
We would lack the equal opportunity God, the God for all, who loves ALL!
You don't like the choices you have been given? If you only knew what you we're missing out on. A lot of you were raised in dead church. That made God out to be powerless. Due to there unbelief and lack of seeking God. It was all just a show or a job to those people.
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:5 KJV
I love how it says it in the message version - 1-5 Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people.
Someone died. The only time you prayed to God was when they were dying. And God didn't heal them. Now you call God worthless. Not even trying to seek God for wisdom on the situation. Some things we may never understand why until we are face to face with Jesus in heaven.
God did not cause so many things he is blamed for. Satan is a liar!
Someone sinned that you looked up to and was leading a life that was a lie. And they were not what they said.
Now you say hypocrites, hypocrites, and did you even know that, that person wasn't even connected to God or his will?
Or in some cases it is merely we all fall short & need Jesus. He did not come for perfect people. Not forgetting the importance of we are to have self control & not allow certain things.
Some perish for the lack of knowledge. Or through ignorance, rebellion, & deception. Allowing satan through the use of our own free will to in come steal, kill & destroy.
It was a trick to cause you to run from God. To start to hate & reject anyone that mentioned God's name. You felt rejected & abandoned by God, and you was lied to.
Some of you all really, really tried to find God & you looked toward organized religion. You only found laws, bondage, and unsanctified people. God tells us how to know His people. It is by their love and fruits. They will rightly divide the word of God.
Congratulations you have spotted some of the wolves and unbelievers. That bear the name of Jesus only in words. Not with there life.
Great, I don't want you to follow them either. We're not seeking to join a club to mingle with each other & live powerless vain lives. We are to only follow the instruction of people if they are following Jesus.
We are to continue to seek God for guidance. To give of our resources as he leads. To share the gospel of Jesus to the world.
As long as sin and rebellion are running rampant. We will never have a shortage of those that are in need and that are suffering.
If you really want to see any country, family or place change. First and a must is to seek God and turn from wicked ways. Then God will come into the desolate places.
Look at the desolate places - are the majority seeking or refusing Jesus?
God can't force his help on anyone.
- There are rules with everything in life.
- If you do this you will get this.
- If you don't do this, than it is impossible for you to get that.
The only thing that is free is our salvation & our freedom to choose what kind of life we want to lead.
Choose God, love God - your life will have the evidence & proof. God has transforming power to restore anyone in any condition. You will have real peace and strength to overcome all challenges. Even death in at the end of your life on this earth.
This victory we have been promised. Has to be worked out, strived for, hungered for, sought out, fought for, believed for.
It will cost you something in return. What are you willing to walk away from to receive all the promises that Christ gives? The price is not that of money. But of making the right choice to do what honors God. He does an exchange - give me the hate, bitterness, lies & etc. I'll give you love, forgiveness, & truth in exchange. But you can't have both at the same time.
That like hanging on to life & death at the same time. It will get us no where.
- Maybe giving up a way of thinking that won't produce anything good in your life?
- Or maybe to not trust your own feelings and wait on God? And see God's power is real.
- Or maybe giving to God an addiction in return for restoration & freedom?
What will you give to God to really know him & to know your true purpose in life?
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. Acts 3:6
It may take money to spread the Gospel of Jesus. But money isn't what is most needed in this life.
It is Jesus, which you don't need any money to receive His free gift.
No amount of money can get you salvation or peace.
He tells us his burden is light, yoke/leading/guidance is easy as in gentle. That if he thirst he will quench it. That he will heal our broken hearts. That he is the way, the truth & the life.
That no man can see, approach or know God unless through him. He has paid the price to set us free from the cause & effects of our sins.
Because God is good, holy & without Jesus we can't approach him. God wants a relationship with us. He wants to give us life. But we have been refusing to get to know the one that loves us so much.
We have all went the wrong way before and thought we were doing the right thing. But it turned out lifeless & a burden to us. Anyone can read the Bible. But to really know what it means is a totally different thing.
Jesus unveils our eyes.
By opening the eyes of our understanding.
That this world of sin & satan has caused us
to not to be able to see or understand.
So we don't stay in a condition of:
Having eyes to see but doesn't see.
Ears to hear but doesn't hear.
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. Matt 22:29
When I first started seeking God. it wasn't as though I knew much at all. Really I didn't have a clue what God could do.
It starts with Jesus. The word of God is revealed to us as we study it - With our salvation already obtained.
In God's word it says that people will be drawn to His word. Jesus is the word of God. And it doesn't even matter if you believe or not.
If you want real enlightenment accept Jesus. Than your quest for knowledge will be a success. You will find life, a life you have never known.
Freedom to hear God talk to you, yes you. God is the only one that knows all and that can lead us through this world. Causing us to know & even be able to say: Though I walk through the dark valley of death, because you are with me. PS 23
You will than be able to have a life of wisdom, victory walking in God's spirit and strength.
So Where Is God?
So where is God? He is exactly where you left him at.
In your life or out. You can continue to yell about God. Because you hate God and blame Him for all the suffering wrongfully. Through misunderstanding & bitterness.
Or you can FACE IT. YOU DON'T KNOW GOD. And really would like to know God's love.
You are angry because you don't really understand. God still loves you.
Your anger is your answer. Your anger about or towards God or His people same thing.
The subject of your anger about God, God will turn this to good. You don't know him & you've been created with a desire to know God. No matter how much the enemy has tried to stop you.
When we are overly angry about something like God, or whatever the problem is. It shows us what we are lacking. Knowing their is a difference in righteous anger & unrighteous. One will lead to sin & the other will lead us to God for the answer.
Righteous anger - You become angry because of the sins of the people that are causing pain and suffering. WITHOUT committing sin before God. God wants us to seek Him and pray. Also take action and help as many as we can. WITH HIS GUIDANCE.
Unrighteous anger - Is becoming angry about the wrongs in this world and sinning against people and God. Becoming part of the problem by adding more seeds/acts of sin/wrong/bad choices to reap in your life & others.
God doesn't not want us in this condition of confusion, distrust, anger, bitterness, & hatred. On the outside looking in.
When you accept Jesus & get into the word of God, & look at people throughout the bible. You will see them and the world in a different light. A change of perception is a powerful thing. You will start to understand what sin causes. God's awesome plan, gift of salvation & deliverance.
HIS LOVE IS TRUE.
You will start to see the difference between those who know Him & those who do not. You will learn to look into the individuals' lives that claim Jesus as Savior and discern if they bear the marks and fruits of Jesus. Are they exhibiting the character of Christ? Has Jesus transformed their life?
- By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18
Then coming to a point where God has softened your heart. And you've received some desperately needed healing. Where he has given you understanding because you stopped being stubborn & led by your feelings.. Than you won't be focused on attacking & taring people apart.
And let God use you as part of the solution. AND not just another hurting person, hurting others.
But healed, loved & empowered... knowing him & the power of his resurrection.
Jesus Didn't Come For Perfect People
You will also learn that there are some really messed up people in the body of Christ. Some have just entered in through accepting there salvation and have not yet been completely restored. They are still learning about God and His love.
It's not like we are magically transformed over night. We must be teachable. Allowing God to heals us & take us forward. Step by step.
God isn't calling for the perfect people of the world. He is calling the broken, starving, abused, abandoned, rejected, addicted, confused, unloved, gays, drunks, divorced, married & lost.
This isn't your home here where you're at, God has prepared a place for those that love Him. BECAUSE He Loves us SOOO Much!
I know you may not believe this, but like I said before some of you that don't believe right now will come to believe later. Once you see without being able to deny what God's word says will happen, happens.
God's power at work in your midst. You will come to know Jesus, he will reveal himself to a lot of you.
Those that will listen when he pulls at that heart and you feel that ache again. Knowing there has to be more. Longing for all that you heard about Jesus to be true, you will be reminded over and over. God will break into your heart for sure.
- Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. John 4:10
Please Choose Life
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. Duet 30:19-20
But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul." Deut 4:29
"Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the LORD, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other." Deut 4:39
"And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." Deut 6:5
"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require from you, but to fear (REVERANCE) the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul." Deut 10:12
`And I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the LORD; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.' Jer 24:7
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Acts 2:17
My word, which comes from my mouth, is like the rain and snow. It will not come back to me without results. It will accomplish whatever I want and achieve whatever I send it to do."! IS 55
"I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. IS 45:23
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do," says the LORD of Heaven's Armies, "I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! Mal 3:10
A tithe is not just of money.
But the question is will you tithe (give) yourself to God.
So you can prove God to yourself?
Will you trust God?
So he can reveal Himself to you in a way that softens & heals your heart. That Causes you to know Him and receive His love. His Help.
Nothing is impossible for God to do!
So where is God?
He is waiting on you to prove He is there. So, step up to God accept Jesus. Watch, He will prove His existence to you for the rest of your life! God is faithful!

The questions come from what sin has produced. All of the sudden Christians caused it or God! Not people sinning! You know dying children is wrong, innocent people dying and starving is wrong, but you can't see any correlation between all of the problems and the lack of reverencing God and sin?
Saying If there was a God than he would not let all this happen. Or if that is the kind of God you serve I want no part of it. Well did you ever think that if the people in this world would seek their creator instead of rebel against Him they could learn the right way and all this suffering would start to fade away?HMMM? Maybe, just maybe do you think we might be the ones causing the problem? All of mankind? We don't fully know how to love or do right all the time. It takes God to help us, lead us, forgive us, pick us up when we totally blow it!
Matthew Milam II from Chicago - Be A Blessing... Become A Hand Of God on March 23, 2011:
I simply love this line…
“And it doesn't even matter if you believe or not. God will keep drawling all people to His word.”
Everyone is pointing to the Word of God. Those who know Him as well as those who don’t, in one way or another, Jesus, or the written word is the focus wherever you turn. People are lining up both for and against God through His Word. Perhaps some will hang around just long enough for the seeds of truth to catch root.

Jesus is love, Jesus is Lord, He is so simple to have as a friend no one has an excuse not to be in His word and know truth and it is true America has chosen to lump Him in with all the gods of the heathen and say He was only a man. America will be sorry and all those who go along with that. Political correctness will be the damnation of so very many. May God open their eyes.

Thanks for sharing. May those that need the Savior take heed.
Tamarajo on February 13, 2011:
You make a great point about people questioning God because of all the sin and suffering which means they eliminate themselves from the equation seeing themselves as righteous not needing salvation.
When all is said and done God will have no blame in the matter.
When the questions are asked "How could you let this happen"?...the question will return to them "How could you let this happen"?
Long but good exhortation
