Daily Society Worsens Yet God is in Control

isaiah-14Whether or not we believe the fact that God is in control – and I do understand just how difficult it is for us at times to fully believe that He is in control – the truth of the matter is that things appear to be going along according to God’s plan. If that does not place Him firmly in control, nothing does.

When I say things appear to be going according to God’s plan, I’m talking about the direction society is moving, not necessarily each and every act of violence, rebellion, or suppression of truth. God’s hand in all these things is overwhelmingly real. He is active, not passive. He controls the direction in which all of society is moving.

People do not seem to realize that what is happening in the world goes all the way back to Genesis 3, the events which immediately followed the fall of Adam and Eve. It was there that God rebuked our first parents and placed a curse on the earth and the animals in it. By the sweat of his brow Adam would from that day forward earn his keep. The plants of Creation would no longer give up their fruit so willingly and easily as they had done in the Garden of Eden. From the fall onward, it would take work to plant, cultivate, and harvest food to be eaten.

We may view this as harsh, but it actually saved our lives. With the fall came in creation of the sin nature within each person. Because of the curse God placed on His Creation, the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics came into existence. Without having to exert energy to eat, man would die much quicker.

The animals were cursed because it was through an animal – a serpent – that Satan was able to tempt Eve successfully. Animals played a part in it and while we may say “Gee, that’s really unfair that God would curse all the animals,” it wasn’t. There was no other way to do it. Everything that lives and breathes on the earth shares in the catastrophe we call “the fall.”

Even though Satan was the direct cause of humankind’s fall from grace, God allowed him to continue doing what he does to mankind. Why is this? In essence, God is giving Satan the opportunity to fulfill his promises (threats) made in Isaiah 14. We are all aware of Satan’s (Lucifer’s) five “I will” threats.

I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne above the stars of God,
And I will sit on the mount of assembly
In the recesses of the north.
‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High, (Isaiah 14:13-15)

These five “I wills” are at the very heart of the torturous path upon which this world was set the moment Satan was successful in causing our first parents to fail in their continued obedience to God.

In other words, there is a far larger picture of what is transpiring in the world today than simply a fully corrupt federal government in the USA. The larger picture goes well beyond black on white crime, cries of racism by blacks toward whites, and the general/specific evidences of inequality that impact this world.

Too many of us focus on specific things. Whether it’s the aforementioned governmental corruption, the greed that uses capitalism to gain more wealth in spite of those who have little, or something else entirely, the real problem is beyond all of these things.

We could take the time to list many things that are happening in society that logically minded individuals would call unfair at the very least. We could count off the problems associated with Islam, Pro-Choice groups, anarchists to Marxists, self-centeredness within too many people who have been elected to lead, and more. There are simply too many things occurring in society globally that we cannot keep track of because it is plethora. If we could focus on all of it at once, it would simply numb the mind. Even focusing on the few things we pick out among the others causes us to grow angry and even incensed at the way our government chooses to deal with citizens.

The reason it is like this is solely due to the five “I wills” in Isaiah 14 as noted above. God – in His infinite choosing – saw the heart of Satan and tells us in Isaiah 14 what was in Satan’s heart. This describes the time when sin was found in Satan (Lucifer). From that point onward – immediately following Satan’s fall – God determined to allow Satan the opportunities he needed to attempt to bring those five “I wills” to fruition.

Notice that the commonality with all the “I wills” is that Satan is promising that he will RULE. He says that ultimately, he “will make myself like the Most High.” In essence then, since the fall of Satan, God has chosen to give Satan as much room as he needs to make these promises into reality. He is giving Satan the lead he needs to try to make himself into God, very God.

This is what is behind everything we see in the world. It leads to a point where Satan will actually RULE over the entire earth. He will do so through his spiritual son, Antichrist, who will be the physical manifestation of Satan on earth. God will allow Satan’s plans of world domination to come to fruition if for no other reason than to prove to Satan that even with everything going his way and with all the opportunities that God allows him to have, Satan will still lose.

This is why our government is as corrupt as it is and in fact, this is why there is this complete air of corruption throughout the entire world presently. Globalists who have been duped into thinking that they were put here to rule over the rest of us have truly been duped. They are doing Satan’s bidding (they call him Lucifer and look for his “light”), yet they believe that Satan is for them, that he wants to bless them with power and might in order to bring in a Utopia that will “bless” the entire world under their rule.

Satan is using them. God is allowing it. We are in the direct path of this coming snowball from hell. All the while globalists believe that their god – Lucifer – desires nothing more than to bless them with unspeakable riches and power, Satan is laughing at these men for their failure to comprehend his true motives.

The upshot is this: God is giving Satan every opportunity to prove to Him (God) that he (Satan) can turn himself into eternal God, that he (Satan) will make himself like the Most High. Do you grasp the ramifications of this?

To Satan, every person on earth is but a pawn to be used for his purposes. All the while, Christ’s Bride is here, on this same earth, bearing the true light to the world. Every day that the Church remains on the earth, Satan is reminded of us ultimate failure. His hatred toward true Christians seems to know no bounds. We are in his way. We are a major roadblock to his plans.

Once the Church is gone (via the Rapture), Satan will have even more freedom to do as he will. The Holy Spirit will no longer be able to work through the Church since it is gone. Yet, we also know from Scripture that starting in the middle of the Tribulation, things get even worse for all who live on this earth. Why? Because Satan can allow nothing to stand in his way to achieve the promises he uttered thousands of years ago.

I understand exactly how difficult it is to focus on what God is doing because it seems as though He isn’t doing anything. Don’t allow your thoughts to go there. He is busy, restraining, keeping, directing, and blessing. It is sometimes very difficult to see when there is so much going on in society that appears to negate God’s work, but that is the lie of the enemy. Don’t give into it.

Our job Christian, as difficult as it may be, is to follow the directives of the apostle Paul as outlined in Ephesians 6:13.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

We are told to have God’s armor on us so that we will be able to resist. Our job is to stand resolute in God’s power against the onslaught of the enemy. If there was no way to do this now, then I really don’t believe the Church would still be here.

We “have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin,” (Hebrews 12:4) and while we may be called upon to do that, for now, it is good to know that God is within us. If He is in us, then He is certainly for us. If He is for us, then clearly, nothing can take us out of His hand (cf. Romans 8).

We have one task. That tasks to place our faith in God and Him alone. Even though there are some terrible things occurring in the world today, we do not have to allow them to rob us of our peace. We can and should continue to express our faith in God and the fact that His plan, not Satan’s is what takes precedence in the end.

Trust Him. Believe Him. Have faith in His ability to save you from the doubts that attack you. Remember, this fight is already won. Satan is fully defeated, but in order to prove to the entire universe that there is no One greater than the Most High, God will allow Satan to do whatever he can to make his promises of Isaiah 14 come to pass. It will only seem that they will come to pass, but ultimately, God overrules.

  • […] Previously, I spoke of the fact that God is absolutely in control. There is no other option that the true Christian can arrive at. God is either in control of all things or He is in control of nothing. It cannot simply be that He exercises control of some things but not others. […]

    We all need to step back from our focus on our certain issues with society and look at the bigger, truer picture of the evil we see…

      Thanks for reblogging the article, Sherry. Bombarded from all directions by societal problems, it’s difficult to step back and remind ourselves that God is not only continually IN charge, but there has never been a time when He was NOT in charge.
