To me, the news story that came out recently about the atheist senator suing God for Natural Disasters (among other things) is yet another sign of the End Times we live in, and what came to mind for me when I read it was the pure audacity of and unceasing pride of mankind. The haughtiness of even thinking of holding Father in contempt for causing these things to happen to Her creation as if they hadn’t already been warned and are the authority on how the world should be and what should and shouldn’t happen to the people living in it. Please take note that the key word in that previous sentence is HER Creation. For we are all, Her creations and we are living on a planet that is also Her creation and none of it, including our very own lives, belongs to us. It all belongs to Father.
We believe ourselves to be of high intelligence, and yet look what has happened to the world we live in. Our scientists can clone DNA but can they create it? We can create energy from natural resources, but can we create the natural resources? We can discover the many laws of creation, but can we create them? We can predict weather patterns but can we create the weather? We can destroy the earth but can we re-create it? Look at the things that we have done to Father’s creation and to each other. With each passing year the mess we created only gets worse. Could any of us do what She has done and continues to do? This is similar to what Father asked Job in the following scriptures:
18 Have you comprehended the extent of the earth?
Tell [Me], if you know all this.
19 Where is the road to the home of light?
[Do you know] where darkness lives,
20 so you can lead it back to its border?
Are you familiar with the paths to its home?
21 Don't you know? You were already born;
you have lived so long!
22 Have you entered the [place] where the snow is stored?
Or have you seen the storehouses of hail,
23 which I hold in reserve for times of trouble,
for the day of warfare and battle?
24 What road leads to [the place] where light is dispersed?
[Where is the source of] the east wind that spreads across the earth?
25 Who cuts a channel for the flooding rain
or clears the way for lightning,
26 to bring rain on an uninhabited land,
[on] a desert with no human life,
27 to satisfy the parched wasteland
and cause the grass to sprout?
28 Does the rain have a father?
Who fathered the drops of dew?
29 Whose womb did the ice come from?
Who gave birth to the frost of heaven
30 when water becomes as hard as stone,
and the surface of the watery depths is frozen?
31 Can you fasten the chains of the Pleiades
or loosen the belt of Orion?
32 Can you bring out the constellations in their season
and lead the Bear and her cubs?
33 Do you know the laws of heaven?
Can you impose its authority on earth?
34 Can you command the clouds
so that a flood of water covers you?
35 Can you send out lightning bolts, and they go?
Do they report to you: "Here we are"?
36 Who put wisdom in the heart
or gave the mind understanding?
37 Who has the wisdom to number the clouds?
Or who can tilt the water jars of heaven
38 when the dust hardens like cast metal
and the clods [of dirt] stick together?
39 Can you hunt prey for a lioness
or satisfy the appetite of young lions
40 when they crouch in their dens
and lie in wait within their lairs?
41 Who provides the raven's food
when its young cry out to God
and wander about for lack of food?
I will not put myself above any of mankind, as I too have been prideful. I too have haughtily taken credit for things that without Father would not be. I am a sinner, just like every other person in mankind and would certainly deserve any number of punishments for my sins if She so chose. None of us, not a single person living on this planet are worthy of the grace that was given us via the sacrifice of Her beloved son Christ Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins.
Now you may think, “But I’m a good person. I have a good heart. I’ve never hurt anyone intentionally.” But are you really? Are you perfect? Does Father’s will and your love for Father precede ALL things? And even if it does, do you always do the right thing? Do you take credit for your accomplishments or do you give thanks to Father for them? Do you lean on your own understanding or do you turn to Father for guidance? Do you hold grudges or do you forgive? Do you ask for the forgiveness for those who trespass against you or do you store up hatred in your heart for them? Do you pass judgment on others or do you leave that to Father and Christ? Do you make time for Father or do others come first? Do you seek spiritual wealth or material wealth? Do you show love, compassion and kindness for your fellow man or do you look out only for yourself? Do you place all your faith, love and trust in Father or do you place all your faith in man, love only those who love you and trust no one?
The point is that none of us is perfect. We are all human and therefore we are all sinful. We all stumble. We all have thoughts that are not in line with Father’s Way and we all perform actions that are not in line with Father’s Way. But the thing to realize is that Father does not have to conform to OUR way, we must learn to conform to HER way.
Psalm 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His acts.
It has been prophesized that when Father’s wrath is fully upon mankind that many, if not most, will curse Father for what is happening. That their hearts will be hardened against our creator and they will in turn loose their own eternal lives. What they have failed to realize is that our way DOES NOT WORK. This is what Father has shown us in withholding the wrath for as long as She has already. Only Her Way is righteous and anything She does, is out of love. If it were not out of love, would She have withheld Her wrath for as long as She has? I assure you, it is not Her wish that any of Her children should perish. And when I say perish, I do not mean in a physical way I mean in a spiritual way for it is far worse to lose your eternal life than it is your physical.
The Natural Disasters that we have witnessed to be increasing serve as a warning to all of mankind. Call it a wake-up call of sorts. But the thing to also realize is that while human lives are lost, these people are also given the opportunity to accept the truth once they’ve passed over and may still receive eternal life. Though they have lost their physical life and left loved ones behind, they are now in a far better place. As humans we place so much importance to something that in essence only lasts for the blink of an eye in comparison to eternity. We think it such a great tragedy when someone loses his or her life. Why is that? Yes, I’ll agree that it’s sad for those that are left behind but not for them. They are leaving this earth for a far greater place. If this is something that you can’t fathom then you must ask yourself, what is worth more to you? Your human physical life? Or your spiritual eternal life? Father gives you the option to choose.
We have been warned. Out of love we are given a choice. We have been given the free will to either humble ourselves and come to an understanding with the help of Father’s Holy Spirit that all of these things must happen in order for the scales to be balanced and for order to be brought back to creation. Or, we also have the option of doing as the man mentioned in this news story has done and remain in darkness. Either way Father’s wrath WILL come. Evil WILL be wiped off of this planet. Creation WILL be restored to Father’s original plan. Father’s name WILL be vindicated and sanctified before all of creation and Father’s will WILL be done.
