Who can questions God?

As I went through further study in the Scriptures,
I found out that there are contrast in all the calamity that is happening in the
world today.

In John 10:10 says, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." This means that God
did not intended to destroy the face of the earth, but yet it says
at the passage above that Jesus is the way of Life.

The main reason God's infiltration to the earth is to Destroy the Works of the
Devil.
"1 John 3:8 'He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has
been sinning from the beginning.
The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.'"

Another scriptures below that proves that God really is the Author of every
happenings in the world today (Who we are to question God).
"Isaiah 45:7-12
' 7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the LORD, do all these things.

8 'You heavens above, rain down righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up,
let righteousness grow with it;
I, the LORD, have created it.

9 'Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker,
to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground.
Does the clay say to the potter,
'What are you making?'
Does your work say,
'He has no hands'?

10 Woe to him who says to his father,
'What have you begotten?'
or to his mother,
'What have you brought to birth?'

11 'This is what the LORD says�
the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker:
Concerning things to come,
do you question me about my children,
or give me orders about the work of my hands?

12 It is I who made the earth
and created mankind upon it.
My own hands stretched out the heavens;
I marshaled their starry hosts. '"

In the passage above we can ask, "why does these things happened, and why did God
allow (approved) and send us all these tragedy and plague among us?"
As I try to meditate this scenario I remember the teaching of my pastor, he said
"It is not God's intension that He created hell to destroy man,
but it's for the devil and his demons because of their rebellion to God, but it is
man's free will that they chooses to Sin againts God and did not
repent until they die, so God have no choice but to honor every decision of man
either to Acknowledge Him (God - to be their Savior and that He exist
Hebrews 11:6) or to turn away from Him (God)and follow their sinful desire which
are against God.

There are two Masters we need to choose who we're ganna serve either God who is
our Savior, or the devil who offer temporary comfort in this world
but in the end will be judge to eternal punishment.

********************************
I quote from Isaiah 64:8 "Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you
are the potter; we are all the work of your hand."

Now let us not be deceived by saying that it is coincident that this catastrophe
comes to us because of the effect of what so called global warming.

For sure the Bible teaches us that God is in control of all things, for He is the
Author and the Finisher of our Faith.
He is the Author of every books of history. God knows what is in the future for He
is not living depending on our time but He is the Author of all times (God lives
in Eternity).
He don't stop working because He is tired, or He need to have a lunch break so He
could go on working. No, God is not controlled by our time, He has His own timing.

If you read the book of Revelation He knows what will happen in the future because
He is God and He can go ahead in the future so why we try to limit God.
He knows every story of our life because He already recorded all what will happen
in the future. He knows wheather we believe Him or not for all of our life story
has been recorded already in our individual book of life.

"Revelation 21:11-15 (The Dead Are Judged)
11Then I saw a great white throne and Him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled
from his presence, and there was no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were
opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life.
The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.
13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up
the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had
done. 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.
The lake of fire is the second death. 15If anyone's name was not found written in
the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."

Let's review the story about the life of Job, to see the authority of God how
satan asked for approval of what trouble he could do in our planet today
(when Satan asked for the approval of God to test Job.) Job 1:6-12 " 6 One day the
angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came
with them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered
the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."
8 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no
one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God
and shuns evil." 9 "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied. 10 "Have you
not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has?
You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread
throughout the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and strike everything
he has, and he will surely curse you to your face." 12 The LORD said to Satan,
"Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself
do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD."

Inspite of Job's trial her wife said to him in Job 2:9-10 "9 His wife said to him,
"Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!"
10 He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from
God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin in what he said."

Another example in the bible how Jesus summon the storm to be still in Matthew
8:23-27, by this story, "Jesus Calms the Storm," God set an example
that He could command even the nature to obey Him (Jesus the creator of the
World).

Then other might asked, "why does these things happened to us? Does God have mercy
or compassion for the world?"
Yes, He does, that's why He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins (John
3:16), but let us look first
for the purpose of God why this things had happened both for the godly and the
ungodly, they face the same trials alike.

Let us look in a different views to God's Word, what does it really wanted to tell
us? Perhaps the people are to much in love with the world.
God said, "Do not love the world," 1 John 2:15-17, "15Do not love the world or
anything in the world. If anyone loves the world,
the love of the Father is not in him. 16For everything in the world�the cravings
of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and
does�comes not from the Father but from the world. 17The world and its desires
pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever."

Now we must understand that we are now living in the last days. If you are a
Christian you should know the things that are yet to come in the future.

2 Peter 3:3-13 "3First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers
will come,
scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4They will say, "Where is this
'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers
died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." 5But they
deliberately forget that long ago by God's word
the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6By these
waters also the world of that time was
deluged and destroyed. 7By the same word the present heavens and earth are
reserved for fire, being kept for the day of
judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

8But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a
thousand years, and a thousand years are
like a day. 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand
slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting
anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with
a roar; the elements will be destroyed
by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you
to be? You ought to live holy and godly
lives 12as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will
bring about the destruction of the
heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13But in keeping with his
promise we are looking forward to a new
heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. "

Now, we possibly see the purpose of God, perhaps He send us a wake up call by
sending all the calamity to this world.

Let us go back to the story of Israel the chosen people of God.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 "13 "When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or
command locusts to devour the land or
send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will
humble themselves and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive
their sin and will heal their land."
