“Why did God let this happen to me” or What if God was one of us?

OK so you take a being. We will call him being “A” He only has good thoughts. Never anything evil. This being can believe things into existence. If he believes something is, it will soon be, if he says things are, they are going to be. For instance if he said “let there be light” there is light. Well whatever thoughts run through his head, if believed, would come into being. He calls those things that are not as though they were. He has authority over everything.

Now Hes thinking all the time. Since he thinks good thoughts, good stuff happens. Now, you have another source of thoughts come in. We will call this source of thoughts source “X”. This source of thoughts is bad. Never does this source of thoughts ever think good. This new source starts talking to him. Now being “A” has always thought good, but other bad thoughts are coming to him. However he doesn’t know these are not his thoughts. He thinks all thoughts come from him. He really can’t tell the difference which thoughts are his and which come the external bad source that is not him. Some of the bad thoughts make sense. He starts to believe them. Well since whatever being “A” believes comes into existence then when he believes bad things bad things are happening.

He once believed “let there be light” but now hes believing “its kinda dark”. Maybe its not so light. So that is happening to him. Now it IS kinda dim. Not bright like before. He doesn’t know that he is getting fed thoughts from somewhere else so hes confused. He thinks it all himself. His life is quickly becoming a mixture of both good and bad things because everything he believes is coming to pass and he thinks and believes both good and bad things. The more he believes the bad, the more bad things happen to him. The more bad things happen to him the more he is likely to believe bad things will happen. The more he believes bad things will, err well you get the picture, a vicious downward cycle.

Job 3:25 “For what I fear comes upon me, And what I dread befalls me.

Where have we seen this kind of thing before? Genesis 2:17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

Does this sound familiar? Since he creates what he believes the knowledge of good, or good thoughts was great for him. When you introduce the bad thoughts (the knowledge of evil) it was bad for him. This being is now in a lot of trouble. Especially since he thinks this all his thoughts are his own. He has heard there is a God, he was told God caused everything to happen. He was told God is in control. That God is the ultimate authority. So he thinks why is God doing all this bad stuff to me. Why? oh ya its cause I’m bad, or maybe God is just mean.

If only there was a source of thoughts that was untainted by evil. Something he could compare and contrast each thought to, something he knew was good and true so that he would be able to ferret out which was good and which was evil and believe only the good stuff.

Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

2 Peter 1:4 King James Bible Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature (God’s output), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (its own wants). But were not like being “A” you might say. What we believe or don’t believe doesn’t come to pass.

Matthew 12:35 (Amplified Bible)35The good man from his inner good treasure [a]flings forth good things, and the evil man out of his inner evil storehouse [b]flings forth evil things.

But I’m not like being “A”,  being “A” is like God. I’m not in control of what happens, I don’t have that kind of athority. God is in control!

Genesis 1:26-28 26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.(A) 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.(B)

But belief is not important. It doesn’t matter what I believe.

Matthew 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you imprison, God will imprison. And whatever you set free, God will set free.”

So you see being “A”s problem is your problem.  Your the door opener, your the door closer. Your the “allow-er”, “the letter”  (the letter “A” in this case) you let them happen to you, you stop them from happening to you.
In light of these truths

“Why did God let this happen to me”

becomes one of the stupidest things anyone has ever said.

So we are being “A”. Our authority is still working and not all thoughts are our own. We can make them ours by believing or reject them by disbelieving. And we have this nifty book will truth in it that will help us ferret out both good and evil. Maybe we should pay close attention to the word of God. Oh but wait, there’s episode number 432 of the Brady bunch on TV. I really like this episode! I’ll read the bible later…. And then a month later when something goes wrong you say “why did God let this happen to me”. LOL (this kind of thing happens to all of us) Luke 10:42 and yet only one thing is really necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion and she shall not be deprived of it.” so the word of God is the good thing that is necessary.

  1. This article is total crap God does and will always have evil thoughts. Jealousy is a sin but yet he is a jealous God right there that is evil. I no longer believe in a God cause if there was one then I would not be hurting like I am right now. I have lost everything and I dont want to continue on. There are so many things in the Bible that contradicts themselves. And yet you Idiots are convinced that there was once a man who was perfect and that the is one god that is flawless and has no evil what a joke well i know that if I ever need a laugh I can look at you Superstitious Retards to get a laugh.

    1. I read your reply please finnish mine:

      I am sorry that your hurting.

      I asked God why he left the devil here. He told me “first off I didnt invite him to this party”. Then he told me that the devil was like termites or mold. It setles on dead things and eats them up.

      Once men knew both good and evil then confusion was the result. Evil, leads to depression and all those other thoughts that cause spiritual pain.

      The devils always talking and you have no choice but to believe his crap.

      If you dont believe in God, thats normal. That stupid evil angel that stole this place keeps people blind. You can’t think anything other than what he wants you to think.

      If you ask God to show himself and do it seriously God will treat it seriously and start to show himself. Whatever you sow you will reap. If your angry at God and christians fine, God can take it. But never giving God a chance to talk to you, well thats a choice you make.
      If you keep that line of faith open he has something to work with. Without giving him the benefit of the doubt he can not reach you. He obeys spiritual law.

      Gods not kickin your ass and giving you pain, evil comes as a result of the curse. Jesus bore our curse. I used to think like you did. I had no choice. In the devils control the lights go out. You cant see. “the light entered the world and the darkenss didn’t comprehend it” the bible says. You think, all the thoughts in your head are yours, but they are not. We live in a world thats kind of like the movie “they live”. except the bad guys are in the kingdom of the air. all thouse thoughts and pictures and imaginations that bombard your mind. Thats the kingdom of heaven.

      Ok so talk to God, ask him to show up and make himself known to you if he exsists. Ask him to do it based on what Christ did. Then keep your eyes open. He will show up, just give him some faith to work with. Then the lines open and he can talk. “without faith its impossible to get anything from God. He can’t reach you without faith cause faith is spiritual substance. At least once in your life ask him to show up and don’t close the faith line or pull the plug on that prayer. If you have any faith invested at all he will show up.

      Try it, know one but you has to know.

      If you don’t at least try you will stay in the dark blinded by stinky. God’s true and you will see it one day. give him a shot while he can still help you. If you wait till after you die it’s too late and you will never get a shot at talking to him. He’s not kidding around about sin and it cost him a lot to pay your way out of it.

      God’s very nice, you’ll like him if you ever see him, he’s far away from all the religious bullshit the spirit world is feeding you. ( almost everything you know about God is a lie)

      He answers prayer too

    2. believe what you want to believe, just let me do the same. I think your badly deluded. Your God wont allow you to see the truth, Jesus said the devil is the God of this world. Eat your cake, and I will eat mine…

  2. My wife is Divorcing me. I have no part in it; though I contributed to what lead up to her decision to Divorce me just as we both have. Her heart is bitter toward me and the Church. I am suffering so much because we have children who will do most of the suffering. I don’t know why God has allowed this. I am trying to lay this burden on him, but though I have I am still the one suffering and soon my babies. How could a loving God allow such to happen. Especially since his will is “One Man and One Woman for One Life.” I and many others have prayed that God will soften her harden heart, but so for nothing has changed. She hates the site of me even though no infidelity has occurred on either side, I think at least not mine and I think she has not cheated either. How can this be? Why won’t God soften her heart? Why won’t she listen to friends, Church members, her own Grandmother, and the Elders of our church. Her response is aways, “I will not discus this. The decision has been made.” Why has God not intervened and softened her heart so this unholy mess won’t happen. If not for me, for my two precious babies who are totally innocent of this matter?

    I desperately want to restore our marriage to a Godly one, one that He would approve of and care for, but He seems to shut out the prayers of everyone who are trying save this marriage. Why?

    In our state a Divorce can happen if only one party agrees to it, so whether or not I agree to it if she doesn’t change her mind it will happen. Why won’t God stop this unholy mess? Isn’t this where God is supposed to step in and help? Why won’t He?

    Is it okay to be agree with God because I can see no outwardly sign that he’s working to fix this unholy mess that’s about to happen?

    I guess I have no more to say at this time…

    1. When Jesus was here he said that the devil was “the God of this world”. He said that the kingdom of God had arrived, which would take over the devils kingdom. I know your hurting. I have had stuff like this happen, I have been hurt by it so i know how your feeling. I want to answer your question but its going to smart a bit. Its the truth though and you need to hear it.

      When Jesus came here he said that the devil was the “god of this world” and the bible says we know that the whole world is in the sway of the evil one. Gods will is not currently done here but it can be. Gods kingdom is here now but is not operating in everyone and everything. Jesus and his disciples went all over the place preaching the kingdom of God and showing examples of the way things are in heaven. Like abundance, healing etc. Most did not accept the kingdom of God and stayed in the kingdom of the devil. The devil still rules here mostly. When you say “why has God allowed this” Its like your saying God is in charge of everything and this is how things are supposed to be. You think God has any part of child molestation? lies? Its clear God is not in charge of this world “YET”, he gave it to man, man gave it to the devil. God’s kingdom is here, in your heart and will operate when we come in line with the rules of that kingdom. FAITH People still serve “the God of this world” and God allows them free will.

      You said

      How could a loving God allow such to happen. Especially since his will is “One Man and One Woman for One Life.” Why won’t God soften her heart?

      This is a huge stement of unbelief on your part. Your getting exactly what your faith is currently. “as your faith is so be it done unto you”.
      There are a lot of things happening here that are not God’s will. Child molestation, death, lies etc etc. God gives men free will. Your job in the kingdom of God is to find a promise from God that you can put your faith into and not come off of it. When your faith gets together with God’s word then God’s kingdom works here. Of course it will be tested, the devils not going to simply give up. He cannot however win if faith is kept alive. “resist the devil and he will flee in terror”. Give up and quit trusting and thats the end of that. In any case is God going to jump over someones free will. He will try to convince people to act on his will if the force of faith is supplied. Your not giving God anything to work with if you doubt him. Its impossible to get anything from God without faith. However with faith in God all things are possible.

      You said “but He seems to shut out the prayers of everyone who are trying save this marriage.”

      He? its God shutting down your prayers??? Thats a devil idea if i ever heard one.

      LOL Why would God do that? That leads to the idea that God is evil. Boy the devil wants you to run with that! He can sell ice to eskimos.

      The devil wants you to turn loose of your faith in God’s promises so he can be free to act in your affairs and start the “steal kill, and destroy” program. He need you OFFENDED with God. (looks like hes winning with tat kind of talk) Thats his plan. Don’t be his dupe. Remember the parable of the sower, When the sun gets out, life gets tough, they immediately become offended. Why cause the roots had no depth of earth. Hard spots! offenses. Let your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s love. We love him because he loves us first.

      When you have faith in God’s promises for your life it locks out the devil. He can’t operate. He must get that word out of you! When you give up that faith theres a hole in your wall. In proverbs we see those that break down a hedge will get bit by a serpent”. Remember Job? “the thing I have greatly feared has come upon me.” When the devil complained about the hedge that God had put on jobs life, God told the devil, “see he is all ready in your power”. Job was in the devils power realm by the fear in his heart. There was faith about other things, but there was a part of his heart in fear. That was the broken part in the hedge. The devil had legal rights to anything that was in fear. Faith kept the devil out, but the devil had full rights to jobs fear. Fear is faith perverted. Works just like faith does with the devil as its administrator. As your faith is so be it done to you. Faith works through love. Love casts out fear. Without fear the devil can’t do anything with you.

      Isaiah 54:14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

      What kind of messed up faith is what your saying? That God is hindering your prayers? The devil told you God’s doing it, that is just twisted. God doesn’t go against his own will. Just cause something is happening in the world does not mean God sent it.

      Behold, they shall surely gather together, [but] not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. Isaiah 54:15

      Jesus said when you pray to believe that you all ready have it. That kind of talk is in no way in line with “I all ready have it”.

      You said “Isn’t this where God is supposed to step in and help? Why won’t He?” The bible says that we are supposed to believe without wavering, if we waver let not that man expect to receive anything from the lord. Whos allowing it now? Are the waves convincing you that God is not answering? Score one for the waves and zero for you. If you are convinced that this is Gods doing, you are going to see God as evil. The devil will clean your clock! You need to grab a hold of one of Gods promises and don’t let go till you see the answer. Let the wind blow, let the waves roll! tsunamis! Don’t waver, don’t let the waves convince you God is messed up. God is not missing it! He said without faith it is impossible to receive anything from God.

      You said “I can see no outwardly sign that he’s working to fix this unholy mess that’s about to happen?” Are you supposed to walk by signs? Jesus said a adulterous and wicked generation seeketh a sign, but God says “the just shall walk by faith”. What does outwardly signs have to do with it. What promises are you standing on? Do you have any? Get a promise book and load up if you dont have any. Don’t go to was unarmed! It looks to me like your only seeing the wind and waves and basing your faith on that. If you were God would this kind of faith please you? The idea that God has missed it somewhere or that he is being purposely cruel is a satanic notion. By faith in Jesus blood remove the sin thats making you see everything darkly. He’s not evil at all. If its not going the way were believing for when is it right to give up believing? When do you throw in the towel and call God evil? Jesus said men should pray and not faint. Be imitators of them who by faith AND PATIENCE inherit the promises. “that by these (promises) you might partake…

      You remeber when Peter saw the wind and the waves and he started sinking? Why? well everyone knows you cant walk on wavy water, only still water. What? You can’t in the natural walk on any kind of water calm or not. Its confidence in Jesus (God’s word) that allows for you to overcome the natural. Peter got his heart off of the word of God, (Jesus) and put it on the circumstances, (wind and waves). When the disciples got into unbelief Jesus rebuked them and said “wheres your faith!”
      God’s not evil and hes not tempting anyone to do evil.
      Anyway thats all I can think to say about it.

  3. If I said God lied to me would that make a difference? I prayed to God about a relationship I was in. I asked for His help in communication with each other so we could move forward. He said” No worries, be patient you have nothing to worry about. When she says “Lets talk” everything will come to light. She is the one for you.” I was so happy I cried. I never had God answer a prayer before It felt awesome. A month later she said “Lets talk” and broke up with me. A month later she was dating someone else that she eventually married. I lost everything I believed in. I haven’t seen her or the kids (she has 3) that I fell in love with in 2 1/2 years now. I still read the bible everyday. I pray to God for understanding in why He told me this and yet He doesn’t answer anymore. I’m really looking hard for something to believe in here. My faith has not been the same. If I don’t get some understanding soon I’m probably going to be lost forever to Him. and yet all I did was follow His instructions.

  4. I must say thank you for this post. I am going through a similar situation and I was wavering in my faith because everyday my husband gets further from reconciliation and is moving out very soon. I have a hard accepting that I asked God when we were dating to remove him if he was not supposed to be with me for the rest of my life and after 21 years God remove him? I am going to practice telling myself some of what you have stated here.
    YOu have blessed my life with this post. Thank you.
