Why Evangelize?

Mike, Truly I am not taking any offense... it's making me think. So God created man; caused him to sin. Why would God cause man to sin after he instructed him not to sin? Then why would he cause men to deny him after he has tried to witness to them? Then why would he send them to the lake of fire (for purging) if he is the one that caused them to reject him? Why would he tell us to evangelize? I AM GOING TO TRY TO NOT EMAIL YOU AFTER THIS EMAIL CAUSE I AM NOT TRYING TO BOTHER YOU. Thank you, M____

Hi M____, Why God has chosen to make entering His kingdom have to be through first being a prodigal son and enduring much tribulation as we come back to Him, I do not pretend to know. Here is the answer the apostle Paul gives to those who ask this question: Rom 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. Rom 9:14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. Rom 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. Rom 9:16 So then [it is] not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. Rom 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Rom 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will [have mercy], and whom he will he hardeneth. Rom 9:19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed [it], Why hast thou made me thus? Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? Rom 9:22 [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: Rom 9:23 And t hat he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Rom 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? Act 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. God's elect will be used to "make known the riches of his glory because He has "afore prepared us to glory."

God's elect are the only channel through which all the rest of mankind will be saved: Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. We do not like it, and we do not understand why God is doing things the way He is. But at least His way is far better than the lies we are being fed in Babylon. God is love, and He will not lose a single son when all is said and done. At that time we will all see and understand and appreciate the wisdom of His ways. "He will have all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." 1 Tim 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. That may not satisfy your curiosity, but I can only speak where scripture speaks, I cannot speak beyond scripture. (I Cor 4:6) We tell others about the love of God because if others are not called by the millions there would be no few elect who are chosen out of the many called. Luke 6:13 And when it was day, he called unto him his [many] disciples: and [out] of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; Mike
