There are few and far, far between examples of God interfering in the middle of the exercising of man's FREE WILLGod has nothing to do with it.
I really should stay out of this...and I don't mean any disrespect.Most memorable of those events is the destruction of Israel in 70 AD . . . and it's rebirth in 1948.
Mrs Slippy just chimed in and her answer is that God's Will/Desire is that none shall perish. His plan is to bring us idiots closer to Him. (Slippy added the word "idiots" Mrs S did not!)Reason versus purpose
As a part of speech, both words are nouns. That is the similarity. This is the difference: Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists while Reason is a cause, explanation or justification for an action or event.
The Purpose (God's) for WWII (My Opinion) was to create a situation where Israel would be allow its homeland again.
King James Version
31 At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
2 Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
4 Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
5 Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.
7 For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.
9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
10 Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
So what is the purpose of this LEADER (Biden)
Not sure.. I did say to my pastor a week ago - "I think this will be good for church growth. The body has always grown stronger and faster under persecution."
No . . . Robie . . . no need to stay out of it . . . because your post is very much applicable to the discussion.I really should stay out of this...and I don't mean any disrespect.
According to your numbers, that's 1878 years of suffering until its rebirth.
I tend to think it was more geopolitical than it was God's intervention. 1878 years is a pretty long time.
Great question Sir. I was dismayed and on the verge on moving to purta Ricca to find a Tica when the clean black guy got elected twice..and if the Hildebeast had beat Trump I woulda went either there or the Panama Canal Zone. Bunch of old beer drinkers hang there I heard. Thought about Ecuador but who wants a gut worm? I realized the Lord is teaching us a lesson. Our duty is to absorb it and get ready to join Texas in seceding yet again another time.My answer is that the USA is filled with too many dumbasses.
But I think there is a more Biblical Answer. I'll get Mrs Slippy doing some research on this but in the meanwhile, what do you knuckleheads think? Thanks!
(Interesting quick read article below...)
Great question Sir. ......We stay mad all the time ya know?
Uhh rah. The scariest part of the equation isnt the sleazy politicians but rather morally bankrupt citizens who vote them into power. That shows a deep moral decay of a Nation. Preacher I listened to today said it started with Sick Willy and Hillary..Ahab and Jezebell. First Us President and his wife who promoted the sacrifice of Children aka Moloch Worship. We need Jesus to come soon.For the same reason he let pharaohs rule over Hebrew slaves.
For the same reason he let Israel fall, time and time again.
When God's people need to learn a lesson the hard way, he teaches the hard way.
