Can evil become any more evil? When you think the worst of the worst could happen, you recover from one tragedy, here comes another.
Have you ever wondered, Lord where are you? How can you allow such a murderous actions to happen to your Children? in Your house of worship?!
What about the passing of laws that contradict God's institution of Marriage?
I would say these are fair questions that we should not be afraid, or shy away to ask our King.
One thing we need to remember is that there is a Battle taking place between Good and Evil. The excerpt below from The Great Controversy by Ellen White offers some helpful insight on what is taking place today and why...
The great controversy between good and evil will increase in intensity to the
very close of time. In all ages the wrath of Satan has been manifested against
the church of Christ; and God has bestowed His grace and Spirit upon His people
to strengthen them to stand against the power of the evil one. When the apostles
of Christ were to bear His gospel to the world and to record it for all future
ages, they were especially endowed with the enlightenment of the Spirit. But as
the church approaches her final deliverance, Satan is to work with
greater power. He comes down "having great wrath, because he knoweth that he
hath but a short time." Revelation 12:12. He will work "with all power and signs
and lying wonders." 2 Thessalonians 2:9. For six thousand years that mastermind
that once was highest among the angels of God has been wholly bent to the work
of deception and ruin. And all the depths of satanic skill and subtlety
acquired, all the cruelty developed, during these struggles of the ages, will be
brought to bear against God's people in the final conflict. And in this time of
peril the followers of Christ are to bear to the world the warning of the Lord's
second advent; and a people are to be prepared to stand before Him at His
coming, "without spot, and blameless." 2 Peter 3:14. At this time the special
endowment of divine grace and power is not less needful to the church than in
Through the illumination of the Holy Spirit, the scenes of the long-continued
conflict between good and evil have been opened to the writer of these pages.
From time to time I have been permitted to behold the working, in different
ages, of the great controversy between Christ, the Prince of life, the Author of
our salvation, and Satan, the prince of evil, the author of sin, the first
transgressor of God's holy law. Satan's enmity against Christ has been
manifested against His followers.
Prayer: Lord have mercy on our souls. We desire to draw closer to you to get to know you and your word more than ever before; we recognize there are bold distractions and subtle distractions. We recognize evil, we recognize deficit in morality and blatant disregard for your instructions and commands in our World. We ask that you be our guide as we aspire to live your way, we ask that you keep us grounded and focused. Let your testimonies and praise never cease from our lips. Protect us from all Evil and save us in your Kingdom as you have promised when you come is my prayer in Jesus name. Amen.
