Ten hard Questions by a Skeptic. #13 (bonus)

Welcome to my blog post entitled "Unveiling the Zeitgeist". Recently, I had the privilege to answer 10 questions from a friend about the nature of God and spirituality in general. I am sharing the ten-part Q&A with my friend's permission. I have titled this very first series "Ten hard questions by a Sceptic". I hope that this blog post series helps all the skeptics out there that wrestle with the existence of God in their minds and in their hearts. Friends, It's time to leave the fence!


 
 
God is hurt when observing how people treat themselves and others. Because He is God does not mean His heart is sheltered or invulnerable.

#13. There are plenty of people around me who are successful, happy (at least on the surface), and get their wishes (seemingly anyway) and they are non-believers. They don't pray. So is God really helping me through my prayers when others do fine as well?


Success is color blind, but the bible says it is the men’s plan but only God allows it to be accomplished (paraphrased). Success is a relative and subjective measurement which if wrongly perceived can lead to damage in a person’s life such as marriage, etc. I would say stay away from any form of comparison to others because there is no gain from it and in the long run, it is dangerous. God can answer even the most self-centered prayers when He seems necessary to answer. The most altruistic prayer can take some time because God in his infinite wisdom delays the answer. It depends on many things such as the season of life, etc. However, the bible speaks about God always hearing your prayers and those prayers are often the reflection of His heart for us. When in doubt remember that this God meets our needs (providence) but He can be more selective when it comes to our wants.


Why doesn't God just reveal himself to the mass public? Actually, God does that all the time. Matter of fact, I like to think He loves showing off. Christian history tracks the open public appearances that we call “rivals” such as the Welsh Revival, the Pyongyang Revival, and the Azusa Street Revival. Just to avoid any confusion, God shows up through people’s response to His presence (still invisible) such as the outbreak of emotions or transformation of hearts. God loves working miracles, healing, and supernatural phenomena. The Holy Spirit uses these events to cultivate faith in the hearts of unbelievers, bring glory to God, and strengthen the faith of His people.


Why did he create evil? See comments above. Lucifer was an ArchAngel. He was God’s highest Angel in charge of reflecting glory and praises from the source to God. He and 1/3 of other angels rebelled against God and they were chased away from God’s presence. Since then, they started to take dominion over the heavens and dominion over the world, always moving against the body of Christ and oppressing others from hearing the gospel so they may not turn to God but rather remain oblivious. Intellect is one of his tricks. You should read excerpts from “The Screwtape’s Letters” by C.S. Lewis the famous British author who describes the tactical and strategic exchanges between an antagonistic mentor and mentee demons on how they manipulate their subjects. It is a fun read. The bottom line is that Evil wasn’t created but they have fallen beyond their roles & responsibility (R&R).


Why did He let us sin and hurt others? God is hurt when observing how people treat themselves and others. Because He is God does not mean his heart is sheltered or invulnerable. He has a deep longing to restore people’s individual life but somehow how people function is that they avoid God’s invitation to have a relationship with Him repeatedly thinking either God doesn’t exist or if He does, He is so aloof that God doesn’t care about me. This is the opposite of what God feels. Somewhere in the bible, God describes that He counts each teardrop when we go through hardships. He is heartbroken by being ignored and left on the roadside without being able to intervene in people’s life. God has all the ability, the willingness, and goodness to help but God is not allowed[Is this really God Almighty? God allows our sinfulness but He is sovereign and controls all things. See Job 1. He is patiently waiting for an invite. I think if God had citizenship, a passport, He would be British because God is true and true - a gentleman.

Why Unveiling the Zeitgeist?

Aaron_104469.jpg

Many years ago, I had a vivid dream where God spoke these words to me “Awaken My Remnant”. Since then, I waited patiently to do just that. Not knowing whom to awaken, I waited on God’s next instructions. Then I wrote my first book, “Pursued By The Maker” which was published by Highbridge Publication and sold worldwide. To this day, I pray for the remnant and their awakening, and I continue to write and share my thoughts in a blog post series entitled "Unveiling the Zeitgeist".
