The incredible event that occurred today in Connecticut in which so many young children were brutally murdered is difficult, if not impossible, to comprehend. And, this event is only one of many similar incidences that seem to be happening more frequently than ever before. People are being randomly killed or injured in shopping malls and school and other places where many people assemble… Asking the question as to why God allows these events to take place is a dead end road, in fact, that question should never come up within a true Christian. At these times, we must consider that whatever God allowed to take place, regardless of how heinous it may appear, that it is always in the best interests of those involved. Although this can be a major test in our trust and acceptance of those decisions of God, but it is at these times that we must fight off our human weaknesses and place our trust in what He has allowed…

If we go to the Bible, we find many examples of extremely tragic events that took place and that God allowed, but we should also notice that at some point, the reason becomes clear, and the event was necessary for whatever reason God was trying to demonstrate His lesson. We should also notice that the people that were innocently involved in these tragedies were always rewarded for what had happened to them. We cannot judge what God is doing, but accept His will regardless of how little understanding we can comprehend from events such as these. There is a verse in the Old Testament that may give us a hint of why these events take place:

Isaiah 57:1 “The righteous perishith, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.”

But, there is another possibility that we must consider. Obviously Satan is at the heart of all of these events that are so tragic, and as we get closer to the end, he knows that his time is short. The Bible tells us that his activities will increase greatly as the end draws near. We are not suggesting that the sky is falling, but perhaps we are being given a warning… There are two very distinct events that are taking place at this time which must be examined as to why God may be warning us. First, our theoretically Christian church is so splintered and out of alignment with true doctrine that it has little or no power with God. Individuals that refuse to adhere to the corrupted churches and continue to trust in only the true word of God have more influence with Him than the millions of claiming Christians that use an altered bible as their guide. Satan is extremely happy with these people and has been very successful in influencing them to be, essentially, disobedient…

And, the other reason for a warning is to look at how the world has been taken over by people that have no interest other than increasing their own power and wealth. The Bible tells us that Israel will be surrounded by enemies that wish to destroy the Jewish State. Israel has possibly never been in harms way more than it is today. For years, this nation of ours was blessed because we supported Israel, but now our leaders have essentially turned our backs against them, and when that began, we began to see more violent events taking place in this country like never before…

The tragic events of today have a purpose and we must trust in the decisions that God made to allow this and many other tragedies to occur. And, we must remember that these poor souls will be rewarded for their participation in these events. We are human and we think and act as humans and cannot be but saddened by what has happened. But, we are Christians first and we must place our trust in God and believe that what has happened has a good purpose even if we do not know what it is. Our prayers should go out to the survivors of these incredible events and ask God to ease their burden of sorrow that few of us will ever experience !!!

 God has no part in this tragedy, God isn't the one that allows evil. The Old Testament is the "old" testament. The reason why so many people leave the Body of Christ is because of beliefs such as this. The true word is that in the Garden, The Father gave mankind dominion over all the earth. Genesis 2:26 "and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that crreepeth upon the earth". When Adam and Eve disobeyed The Father, they chose evil and submitted their authority to Satan. This is the whole reason that Jesus had to  come. The Father limited Himself, when He gave authority to man. This is why He works through Mankind, because he gave them the authority and WE submitted to evil. So a MAN, had to take the authority away from Satan. God had to become man and right the wrong. With the new covenant IN CHRIST we have regained the authority and dominion. But we have to use our authority, instead we think that Satan who has decieved the world, is in control. He is using the authority that we have given him. Now let's talk about Job, in the Old Testament, there was no New Covenant. Therefore since mankind had submitted their authority to him he had every right to do those things to Job. 

When you state that  I quote "We cannot judge what God is doing" In essence you are accusing God of evil. God is Pure and incapable of Evil. We are under a New Covenant Christ earned the New Covenant for mankind. When people continually say that it is God's Wrath, against religion and the evils of the world, then we are throwing Christ away (yes being anti-Christ). God is not mad at us, Christ took all of God's Wrath, it is over and done with. It is mankind's fault, not God's. Now one last statement...........God does work through man to bring good out of tragic events He Works all things For Good.
