 What is WRONG With THIS World ?


A horrible thing happened in my husbands family this week.
Two of our family members were murdered.

And I ask myself this question,...

What in the world is wrong with this world ?
And I thought,...It is ME,... And all of us ( forgive me ),that call ourselves
Christians...followers of Christ ?
Because why is there not a difference being made in our communities ?
...in this world ?
At one time, in this world, in the Word it said,if these Christians were allowed to continue their strong witness ( their doing of the will of God ),
that they would turn the world up-side-down.

But what is turning the world upside down ?...Evil men ! ...they need a desire for God ...they need such exemplary Christians until these sinners will desire what we have in Christ. Where is the magnitism ? So many need Him too.

SALT,...Have we lost our SALT? ...Have we got no oil ?

What is wrong ?
I know the Word says that evil will wax worse and worse,..
But please Lord help me make a difference !

I hope you can bear with me in my deep thought provoking thoughts.

Oh Lord Thou knowest,

Yours Lord,
elizabeth

 Re: What is WRONG With THIS World ?

The reading of this was very much startling.
I'm feeling so terrible for you and this circumstance, Elizabeth. It is something unimaginable.

Speaking for myself, now is not the time to respond to the desperate question you posed: "What is wrong with this world?"; although the scriptural answer is indeed available.

 Re: What is WRONG With THIS World ?

Dear sister,

Oh that was terrible and I pray sincerely for the family. god, be with them.

There will be times of trials and tribulations in a believer’s life. Things beyond reasoning and explanation might happen and we may even be ridiculed by non believers who may ask ‘why these things happen to you and where is your god’. All we can and have to do is ‘be still and know that He is god’.

I guess the reason for god to allow such incidents in our lives are to test if our love and devotion is dependent on our situations. When He sees that it is beyond our circumstances, He is well pleased and we are elevated to a higher level spiritually.

About the world, it works in a different system, with a different spirit.

1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,

John 14:17 {that is} the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, {but} you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

We are on a battle field. Never be discouraged. Our lord is on our side in this battle. He knows when and how to help us win in this battle.

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual {forces} of wickedness in the heavenly {places.}

May god bless you and give you an abundant supply of grace, when you go through this difficult time. Let us all pray and ask our heavenly father to comfort us and strengthen us more and more, through His spirit. Amen.

 Re: What is WRONG With THIS World ?

Oh Elizabeth, that is horrible horrible horrible.

I dread to ask this question, were they saved?

Even if we had all the salt, all the oil and all the right ingredients, this tragedy may still have happened. There was only four people at the beginning of the world and Cain murdered his only brother Abel. It's in man to do these awful things.

Even though the distance separates you from all of us, I feel like this has hit close to home.

How is your husband holding up?
