If God delay for His second coming if so why!

If God delay for His second coming if so why!
And why He allows the suffering to Hisloving people.

It was the year 31 AD. A handful of poorly educated men and women were privileged to witness some of the most dramatic and meaningful events in the history of eternity. A Being who called himself the Son of God, and who had performed astounding miracles and wonders, allowed himself to be nailed to a cross, to suffer violent abuse and to die in agony. These few humanly insignificant people saw that same being buried in a tomb, only to witness His astounding return to life three days and three nights later. They then had the opportunity to stay with Him, talk to Him, eat with Him for several days, after which came the painful separation. One day, after sharing more joyful times together, that Great Being rose to the sky and disappeared.

Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Then something perplexing and very reassuring took place. Two angels appeared to them and gave them the wonderful news: “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven. Acts 1: 9-11

This, in other words, was not the end, as they might have feared; this was just another necessary step in God’s great plan. Christ would return again and, next time, all their hopes and dreams would have been fulfilled.
One of the biggest mysteries in the Bible concerns the timing of Jesus Christ’s return to earth. Although the Bible tells neither us no one knows the hour nor the day when the Lord will return, the Bible is filled with many indicators or conditions we can use to assess how close we may be to the season of His return. As you are about to read, many of the conditions spoken of in Bible prophecy which would seem to indicate Christ’s return is coming in the not-too-distant future are clearly visible in the world today, reminding us He could come at any moment!

1.The signs to be completed for His second coming
The signs are as follows: Here we illustrated only 42 around many. It shows almost expect very few it is completed. To complete our target or to be prepaid two marks were identified. One is our death and another is Lord’s second coming We need not to take more worry on the second coming rather than we have to keep ready to meet our Lord is our motive.

Hence the second part is in the hand of God which we cannot alter it in any cause. We are not sure may or may not present in the second coming of Jesus. Dear loving Beloved BROTHER AND SISTER don’t deceive yourself and God is not delaying and He the almighty surly come in time and don’t waste your piteous life time to meet your Lord please. You cannot add even one second in your life with all your power is sure.

Let we see one by one

1.The Gospel will be preached in the entireworld: Matthew 24:14: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.2. There will be a mixture of believers and false believers within the Church body: Matthew 13:24-30: Another parable put the forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tears? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

3. There will be scoffers: The Bible tells us one of the key signs of the end times will be people doubting the return of Christ will ever happen.2nd Peter 3:3-4: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.4. Humanity will be able to cross the globe rapidly and science will be advancing: Daniel 12:4: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.5. Perilous times will come for mankind:2nd Timothy :1: This knows also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

6.Mankind will deny God once flooded the earth:2nd Peter 3:5-6: For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:7. The earth will be swimming in a sea of violence: As it was in the days of Noah (Luke 17:26), so it shall be at the end. How was the earth in Noah’s time?Look no further than Genesis 6:11: The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

8 There will be warfare all over the globe: Mark 13:8: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:9. Mankind will have the capability to destroy all life on the planet: Unique to our generation, this prophecy could not have been fulfilled prior to the invention of weapons of mass destruction such as the nuclear bomb.

Matthew 24: 22: And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.10. Deadly diseases will be rampant:Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diver’s places.

11. Famines will be common: Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.12. Earthquakes will be occurring globally: Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.13.

There will be violent weather: Luke 21:25- And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;14. Children will be disobedient and rebellious: 2nd Timothy 3:2: For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,15. Christians and Jews will be hated for their faith in and connection with Christ:

Luke 21:17: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.16. Mankind will be in a state of moral decay:2nd Timothy 3:2-5: For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.17.

Religious cults will flourish:2nd Peter 2:1: But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privacy shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.18. There will be progress made toward a global government: The European Union, the revived Roman Empire, is alive today and moving steadily toward the fulfillment of this prophecy as seen in Daniel 7: 23:

“The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” The Antichrist who will lead this world government (after the rapture of the Christian Church takes place) will be a leader from the European Union as seen in Daniel 9:26. He will be of the people who destroyed the city of Jerusalem and its sanctuary in AD 70, the Romans.

19. The world will be desperately seeking peace:1st Thessalonians 5:3: For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.20. Global means of communication will exist: We know this because the book of Revelation teaches us the entire world will see several events. This is unique to our generation as only recently in mankind’s history have these technologies been present. Revelation 11:9: And they of the people and kindred’s and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

21.In the last days, fallen angels will mingle with mankind: I know this one is going to be controversial, but there is a scriptural basis for this, as seen in Luke 17:26: And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.A careful examination of what was going on in Noah’s day seems to suggest fallen angels were somehow mingling with mankind.

Genesis 6:4: There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bear children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.If so, one of God’s motives in destroying mankind at the flood may have been Satan and his fallen angels, in an attempt to save themselves from His judgment, were trying to taint the bloodline that would lead to the birth of Christ. We find Noah was spared from destruction for three reasons as seen in Genesis 6:9. They are as follows:

1) Noah was a just man.2) Noah was perfect in his generations (note this reference to his bloodline being pure).3) Noah walked with God. There is potentially more to the numerous UFO sightings and alien abduction stories in the news today than we have ever imagined!22. Israel will exist as a nation in the latter days: Read Ezekiel 37:1-14 to see this prophecy, which was fulfilled in 1948.23. Israel’s birth as a nation will have happened in one day: Fulfilled on May 14, 1948 as seen in Isaiah 66:8: “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once?”

24. Israel will be in possession of Jerusalem (has been since 1967):This happened as a result of the Six-Day War in 1967. The capture of Jerusalem was critical from a prophetic standpoint as the Antichrist will someday enter a rebuilt Holy Temple that will be standing in Jerusalem at the midpoint of the Tribulation Period where he will declare himself to be God. This event, referred to by most as the abomination of desolation, is documented in Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15.25. Israel will be surrounded on every side by enemies: Psalms 83:4: They have said, ome, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

26. The possession of Jerusalem will be the source of international conflict: Is this happening today or what? It’s a HUGE sign to us! Zechariah 12:3: And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.27. Christians will be lukewarm in their faith: In Christ’s address to the seven churches, He says in Revelation 3:15: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

28. Many will claim to be Christ: Matthew 24:5: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
29. False Christ’s and false prophets will be very effective in the art of deception: Matthew 24:24: For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shrew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.30. There will be signs in the heavens: Luke 21:25: And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

31.Sexual immorality will abound: Jude 1:18: How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.32. Idolatry will be common: Revelation 9:20: And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

33. Many Christians and church doctrines will depart from the faith:1st Timothy 4:1: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;34. Mankind’s state of rebellion will be so great, the coming of Christ will catch them completely off-guard: Luke 21:35: For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.35.

Homosexuality will be flaunted: Leviticus 20:13: “If a man also lies with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. “This is also spoken of in Luke 17:28- 30: “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builder; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

Although homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God, all sin is! I bring up this point because many Christians treat homosexuality as if it is the most unforgivable sin of all. Jesus Christ forgives all sins and we, His followers, should be reaching out to these people with love in our hearts that they might be saved! Homosexuality is not an unpardonable sin any more than any other sin is!36. Many will rejoice in their unrighteousness:2nd Thessalonians 2: 12: “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. “These people, according to 2nd Thessalonians 2:11, will be subject to believing the lie the Antichrist will present to the world in the aftermath of the Rapture of the Church, leading many of them to eternal damnation. God will allow them to be deceived; it seems, as a reward for their bold defiance of Him. What a frightening thought!

37. Many will begin to understand Bible prophecy and will start warning the world the return of Jesus Christ is near:Acts 2:17-18: And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

38. Aliyah will be taking place: What is Aliyah? Aliyah is the Hebrew word used to describe the physical return of the Jewish people, the children of Israel, to their ancient Promised Land, Zion, from abroad. In Scripture, God promised He would bring the Jews (descendants of Abraham) back to their Promised Land from all the nations of the world where He had scattered them! It is happening even as you read these words.
Ezekiel 36:24: For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

39. There will be signs Earth’s environment is in trouble: Romans 8:21-23: Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.

40. Technology will exist capable of tracking the world’s population and their finances: Revelation 13:16-17: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

41. The capability will exist for an army of 200 million soldiers to be formed: In Revelation 9:16, John sees a specific number of soldiers/”horsemen” preparing for or entering into war: And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand: and I heard the number of them. Estimates of the total human population of Earth during Christ’s day typically vary between 100 to 400 million people.

In 2004, the CIA determined China has an estimated 208,143,352 in its population alone fit for military service.42. Drug use will be rampant: Revelation 9:21: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. The original Greek for the word ‘sorceries’ is pharmakeia {far-mak-i’-ah}. It means the use or the administering of drugs OR sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it.43. Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

(2nd Timothy 3:13)One doesn’t have to think too hard to realize this prophecy is being dramatically fulfilled in our times. Upon reading this, close your eyes for a moment and think of how many people you know (or have heard of from reputable sources) who seem to be evil to the core! Similarly, think of how many people you know who have fallen victim to frauds and scams perpetrated by seducers (deceivers/imposters). The world today seems full of both with no letup in sight.
2.Whydoes it is appears that The Lord Delay His Coming
And what for!
The second coming of Christ has been a fundamental Christian longing for almost 2000 years. No true Christian has lived his life without reading about it, hearing about it, thinking about it, hoping for it — desperately longing for it. True Christians look at the return of Christ not only as the fulfillment of magnificent biblical promises but, also, as a deliverance from all the trials and tribulations that afflict them, from the painful reality of physical decay and from the fear of the great enemy: death.

The first thing we need to understand is that God is the greatest psychologist there is. You see, He created the human mind. He knows how it works better than anyone else. God knows what motivates it; God knows what tests it; God knows exactly what shapes it. Therefore, I would like to propose to you that God kept the date of Christ’s return a mystery mostly because of three reasons:

1. To motivate us.2.To test us.3. To shape us
What do I mean to motivate? Not telling Christians the exact time of Christ’s return was a statement of love from a God of love. It was not God’s attempt to frustrate or to discourage His people. It was, rather, a necessity that would greatly benefit the people He loved. If God had told His people the date of Christ’s return, knowing that thousands of years would have passed, God would have done Christians a terrible disservice. The hope of Christ’s imminent return was very motivating and energizing for early Christians. They, in fact, were willing to endure all sorts of persecution and abuse, in part because they believed that Christ’s return was imminent. New Christians seem to be affected by the concept of Christ’s imminent return very positively.
Let’s think back at how exciting it all was for us when we learned about the possibility of Christ’s imminent Second Coming. Do we recall how obsessed we were with Christ’s return? How much time we spent thinking about it? How much it helped to bring us to conversion and how much it helped us to stand firm and unshakeable through the horrible trials that often accompany the years after conversion? No matter who was against us; no matter how many painful trials came our way, we held firm and unshakable. And this has been the case from the beginning:
Hebrews 10:32-34 — Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. 33Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.”

Revelation 2:1-3 — To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lamp stands: 2I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but not, and have found them false. 3You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

The Ephesianwas gladly enduring hardships and was not growing weary, and one of the reasons was because they were convinced that their Lord’s return was near, and that their trials would have soon ended. I remember people who lost wives, husbands, children, jobs, who were totally rejected by their families. Yet they held firm. Christ was near; why shouldn’t they?Yes, believing in the proximity of Christ’s return has been and continues to be an energizing factor in our Lives. And that is good. God knew that it would have been good for us, and we benefit from His statement of love.
God’s decision to use this approach was also a perfect way to test us. By allowing the possibility of disappointment into His great plan, He created a very powerful test to distinguish between the fake and the true; the truly converted and the superficially converted; the ones who love God and Christ deeply and the ones who “want” eternity, as soon as possible and nothing else.

Matthew 24:36-44 — But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the Goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Be Ready. Be ready with the right attitude. Be spiritually ready at all times. Watch. But watching doesn’t just imply watch world events. It also means watch yourself; watch your spiritual state; watch your attitudes and behaviors; watch and never allow the passing of time, and the fact that your Lord delays His coming to be an excuse to take it easy, to slacken off, to compromise with sin. Another significant scripture in regards to this is 2 Peter 3:1-4.

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”Yes, the day would come when some of those who had endured for some time would finally say “enough! I have waited long enough! I thought all the great rewards were near, but decades have gone by and nothing has happened — nothing! In the meantime my life is going by and many of the material things I would have loved to possess, have gone by me as well. I still have some time left, though, and I will use it to make up for lost time.”

Yes, some who were faithful and committed and longed for their Lord’s return have set it all aside and have embraced the world instead. Some have created communities of scoffers on the Internet and now take pleasure in ridiculing the hope that they previously embraced. Read what two Internet scoffers have to say:

God chose to keep the exact time of Christ’s return a mystery, so as to mold us and shape us. In waiting year after year, decade after decade, traversing the crucible of life, we are shaped, we are mounded, we are matured and we are made complete. In fact, prolonged waiting is one of the greatest tools God uses to accomplish this. James 1: 2-4 — My “brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Waiting faithfully year after year for Christ’s return tests us, it molds us, it shapes and helps to complete us. Peter 4: 12-13 — Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

Yes, The fiery trials will come our way, and that is a good thing, because we are partaking in Christ’s suffering and, as a result of the cleansing that takes place by going through the fire, we become more and more like Christ and, because of this, we will be glad with exceeding joy at his return.

Romans 13:11-12 — Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light”

James 5: 7-9 — Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until receives the early and latter rain. 8You also be patient. Stablish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Paul wrote “the day is near.” James wrote that the coming of the Lord is at hand. How could that be? These statements were written over 1900 years ago. Were Paul and James lying? No, their statements were true, are true and continue to be true. The coming of the Lord will come for all Christians with absolute certainty in their own lifetime, or should I say for most at the end of their life time

Christ has already returned in a way for all the thousands of Christians who ever lived. When? The moment they died. They closed their eyes and the next second, from their perspective, they will be present at the return of Christ. From their perspective, Christ returned whenever in history they went to sleep.

For all of us living today, Christ’s return is just as near. For some Christians, Christ’s will return perhaps tomorrow; for some, perhaps, next week, for some next month or next year. In the meantime, we are asked to suffer with dignity and to allow the trials that accompany our lives to shape us more and more in Christ’s image. Why? Because suffering shapes; suffering matures; suffering completes. Christians are moulded by time, trials and suffering, until they are finally complete for the Master’s use.

As we have seen, God in His great wisdom has chosen to leave the return of Christ shrouded in a level of mystery, because He loves us. He, the greatest psychologist, allowed Christ’s return to be somewhere in the distant future for a great purpose. The reason God the Father makes it seem that Christ delays His coming is to benefit us as we have seen today by motivating us, by testing us, and by shaping us. Yet the return of Christ must remain the great focus of our Christian hope. Time may pass; the years go by; signs come and go, but the promise remains as solid as ever.

I Thessalonians. 5: 1-10 — But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3. But when they say, peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5You are all sons’ son of light and sons of the day.

We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night 8But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

Perhaps that day is nearer than we think; perhaps it is not. Every day, though, we are closer and closer, and we know that the day will come when we will finally be with our Lord. Let’s keep the hope alive, therefore. Let’s keep the longing more vibrant than ever. In the meantime, let’s grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ; let’s allow God to mature us and to complete us, so that when Christ will appear we will indeed be ready meet Him, with exceeding joy.

3.Why does God allow sufferingto His loving people?
In Isaiah 53 ,10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.

In 2 Timothy 3.12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution and in Psalm 34.19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. Romans 8:18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.Psalm 119. 71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

John 16. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

The curious as well as the critics of Christianity ask this question. If God is all-powerful and all loving, then why does He permit evil and suffering in the world? Various answers have been given but permanently settling the issue is impossible because so many of our answers raise further questions. Nevertheless, our lack of ability to answer the question perfectly does not mean that we cannot offer solutions.

Of course, I do not assume to be able to answer these questions definitively, but I can offer some solutions.

The Old Testament gives us a great example in the life of Abraham and who lived before him named Job in the story of Jacob and Joseph, who went through terrible suffering, being sold into slavery by his brothers, unfairly accused of a crime and falsely imprisoned. Finally, after a dozen years, he was put in a role of great authority where he could save the lives of his family and many others.

This is what he said to his brothers in Genesis 50:20: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” And if you’re committed to God, He promises that He can and will take whatever pain you’re experiencing and draw something good from it.Mre over in King David life and our Lord Jesus life every one suffer lot. Hence He said

First of all, it is possible that God has reasons for allowing evil to exist that we simply cannot understand. In this the Christian can have confidence in God knowing that His ways are above our ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). As the Bible says, the just shall live by faith (Hab. 2:4).Second, God may be letting evil run its course in order to prove that evil is malignant and that suffering, which is the unfortunate product of evil, is further proof that anything contrary to God’s will is bad, harmful, painful, and leads to death.
God gave Adam dominion over the world (Gen. 1:28).

When he rebelled against God, he set in motion an entire series of events and changed the very nature of man and creation. Both were affected by sin. Creation was no longer a paradise, but bore thorns and thistles (Gen. 3:17-18; Rom. 8:22). People became sinful (Rom. 5:12; Eph. 2:3), who were haters of God (Rom. 3:9-12), etc. The only conclusion to such a situation is death. Jesus said, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matt. 24:22).

Sin is rebellion against God and His created order, but God has not left us alone in this fallen world. He continued to enter this world, pointing us to Himself, to truth, to morality, purity, and love. He used the evil of the world (liars, perjurers, the envious, etc.), to bring His Son to the cross so that we might have the opportunity to obtain eternal life. In this, God has not stepped away from fallen creation, but has stepped into it by becoming Jesus. God works within the fallen world to effect change and He uses fallen people to accomplish His will. In this, He is proving His sovereignty over evil, suffering, and rebellious people, proving that sin and evil are utterly futile, and that He is worthy of honor and glory.

A third possible reason that God is letting evil occur is so that on the day of judgment, the condemned will have no right to say that their sentence is unjust. God is not stopping people from exercising their free will. Think about this: If someone said that God should stop evil and suffering, then should God then stop all evil and suffering? If God only stopped some of it, then we would still be asking the same question of why it exists.

So, if we want God to stop evil and suffering, then He must stop all of it. We have no problem with this when it means stopping a catastrophe, or a murder, or a rape. But what about when someone thinks of something evil? Evil is destructive whether it is acted out or not. Hatred and bigotry in someone’s heart is wrong. If it is wrong, and if God is to stop all evil, then He must stop that person from thinking his own thoughts.

To do that, God must remove his freedom of thought. Furthermore, which person on the earth has not thought something evil? God would be required, then, to stop all people from exercising their free will. This is something God has chosen not to do. Therefore, we could say that one of the reasons that God permits evil and suffering is because of man’s free will.

Fourth, it is quite possible that God uses the suffering to do good. In other words, He produces patience through tribulation (Rom. 5:3). Or He may desire to save someone through it. Take for example, the account of Joseph who was sold into slavery by His brothers. What they did was wrong and Joseph suffered greatly for it.

But, later, God raised up Joseph in Egypt to make provisions for the people of that land during the coming drought of seven years. Not only was Egypt saved, but also his family and brothers who originally sold him into slavery. Joseph finally says to them, “You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good” (Gen. 50:15-21). Of course, the greatest example of God using evil for good is the death of Christ. Evil people brought him to the cross, but God used that cross as the means to save the world.

But then we must ask, if this is true, are we working against God by working against evil and suffering? No, we are not. God says he does not want us to sin and suffer. But it is simply true that God can use evil despite its apparent despicable nature.God is in the world using the world and its failures for His glory and the benefit of those who listen to Him.But then, what about those who seem to suffer innocently with no benefit resulting? What about the woman who is raped, or the innocent bystander who is killed by a stray bullet. In both cases, the victims and families suffer nothing but pain and loss. What good can this possibly be?

I think that the answer is two-fold. One, ultimately, no one is innocent. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23) and are by nature children of wrath (Eph. 2:3). There is none innocent. Though this is biblically accurate, it does not satisfy the question emotionally. Why do little babies suffer for things they have not done? I must acknowledge that I do not know. Ultimately, we must trust God who knows the beginning from the end and sees the grand picture. He will have the final word and He will be vindicated.

All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.Ecclesiastes 9.2-3

When they are suffering any ordinary person unbeliever tis not take it more seriously. But for the God fearing people start to ask question I am very faithful to God and why it is happen to me also. But the result of suffering to ungodly people is nothing yield good thing But, for the righteousness. people it is more valuable in the presence of God .Every suffering of righteousness people is counted by the God and every sufferings are only plan of God. In Romans 8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.. All thing means including suffering

Suffering is the result of human sin. The world is not the way that God created it and because of that, all are vulnerable to the effects of sin in the world. Why does one person suffer and another does not? Why do catastrophes happen to some and not to others? It is because sin is in the world. But there will come a day when the Lord will return and cleanse this world of all sin and all suffering.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away,” (Rev. 21:4).
