Whenever atrocities occur, many people start to ask the question: “God why did you allow this evil to take place?
The Reality is That Evil is Not of God
The god of this world is satan (2 Corinthians 4:4) and the orchestrator of evil, demonic activities and unfathomable atrocities.
He is the prince of the power of the air. The devil injects bad spirits into humans to create fear and mockery in the body of Christ. However the Lord God Almighty is supreme.
The Bible teaches us in Ezekiel 18:32 that the Lord takes no pleasure in the death of anyone. Elohim, our heavenly Father is the Lord God Almighty. He deals with agents of the devil. He destroys enemies in ways that only He can do. Have no fear. Your eyes shall see the downfall of your enemies.
“But, I’m not satisfied. Why are all these things happening?”
Do we have all the answers? No, “our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture” (1 Corinthians 13:9 NLT).
Remain prayerful and faithful. Don’t walk around afraid of anything but believe God that He will never forsake you.
