We can pray that the Messiah will come, but the fact is, God has to set up the world for His coming. Our prayers often dictate to God what we think He should or shouldn't do; and in fact, our prayers are more for our needs than His. If we fully understood about death, dying, heaven, hell, God's Judgment, and all of eternity, we would do anything we could to die. Really. But this world is all we know and that we need to get our earthly affairs in order before we draw the final curtain on life. But sometimes it doesn't work out this way for even the best prepared, because, no one is ever fully prepared to die until one is absolutely sure that this is the end. And death is often more for the living than it is for the dying. We want to feel good when our loved one dies. We want to believe in heaven and that he or she will be better off in death than they were in life. It doesn't matter how one dies. But the timing of death is all in God's good choosing.
He chooses death for everyone, even if we aren't prepared for it. I would say that no one is prepared for the end. But I keep thinking about those young lives shortened in both Paris and Orlando at night clubs where young people didn't deserve to die. I am sure many are wondering how God can allow events like these to happen. It's not so much that He allowed those events to happen, but that He has a place for the victims regardless of what some people believe. There are those who believe that death is the final judgment. No. Death is only the beginning of God's Judgment. This is why He has a place for those who are innocent of ever having taken a Human Life. There are those who believe that somehow people pay for their sins by dying. Nothing could be further from the truth. The ONLY sins God cares about are the sins of murder and suicide. While I hate to see perpetrators of events like these killed by police, the fact is that these people who murder will NOT see the gates of heaven no matter their reasoning for doing so. In both cases, the perpetrators of these mass killings believed they were going to die for a higher cause. If their higher cause is to serve Satan, they succeeded. It's the ONLY cause they served. God has made arrangements for victims of crimes like these and others like them.
No one who purposely takes a Human Life serves God. Sometimes we want to believe otherwise. But God judges everyone the same regardless of reasons for those who purposely take Human Life. But death always comes on God's good timing. He knew that events like these that took place in these cities were going to happen. This is why He made arrangements for victims of crimes like these. In fact, He has made arrangements for EVERY victim of death, regardless of reasons why anyone would purposely take a Human Life. Even when one serves Satan to purposely take Human Life, God is fully in charge of choosing who lives and who dies at any given moment. It's just that as much as we want to believe we can dictate when we die, more often than not we can't. I am Brother Ralphie writing for my Angels from The Angels of Life Institute. Peace.
