Some call it "an act if God", when there is a disaster or catastrophe. But the Bible states that God is good. He has the best in mind for the human race: His creation. It is sin which separates mankind from God.
Satan is the one who is cruel, a liar, robber and murderer from the beginning. He is the one who causes pain, war, destruction, and bondage. He in turn uses unregenerated man to orchestrate his evil plans.
God will judge satan and all them that are his followers. They will all be cast into hell, because they choose this themselves by rejecting God.
For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. Luke 9:56
This is exactly why God the Father sent His Son Jesus Christ, so we would be saved from the ruler of this planet and from eternal death. This is, if we call upon the name of Jesus and accept Him as our Savior.
God doesn't send anyone to hell, but all can make a choice. If one does not want to accept Jesus as Sacrifice for their sins, then they will be outside of God's presence, now and for eternity. This does not include, they that never had a change to hear the Gospel or to read God's word.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
There is another lie going around that teaches that all of mankind will go to heaven. God is love and how could He send anyone to hell, they say. The Father does not send anyone to hell, people choose this themselves.
What authority would anybody have to allow people entering into Heaven who reject Jesus, or who curse His name? Should they that abuse others and themselves and who wilfully live in sin be allowed to enter the place which God has prepared for His children?
Why would Jesus had to suffer on the cross, while forsaken by His Father, if all mankind would be saved and allowed into Heaven after all?
The eternal punishment is what people choose themselves. We all have been given a free will, so the blame is on them that disobey God's word.
This can be compared to keeping the rules of the game so one may win. Reject the same rules and you'll be the loser. Right?
Hitler was a co-worker with satan, as so many other rulers are and have been. Hitler was evil, but God is GOOD. Would Hitler be in Heaven?
Over the Ages, men, women and their children were killed by the claws of satan or because of their own disobedience and rebellion against God, the Creator. The killings of children of parents who reject God, are the responsibility of the parents, NOT of God. Because they are born in iniquity of their parents.
Therefore, it is NOT God's hand who destroys, since God doesn't want anybody to perish but have everlasting life. His ultimate SACRIFICE was and is, His Only Begotten Son.
Isn't that enough? It is up to mankind to accept His OFFER.
It scares me that some dare to speak up like that, blaming the Creator. Life is just like a flower; today it blooms... tomorrow it is withered. Have they forgotten that they're made from dust? Who is mankind, to point the finger at God?
That your faith is down the drain does not change the fact that God is still the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac. Neither does it change the fact that there is a heaven for His children and a hell for the devil, his demons and the ungodly. If you want to believe this or not, does not make any difference. God is TRUTH!
THE CHOICE IS YOURS and your choice is your responsibility.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13,14
God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2Peter 2:4
If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9
Be blessed in the name of the Lord.
