Perfect Justice in God's Perfect Time

The God of justice

Dear Bro. Eli,

Please help me. I don’t know what to feel anymore. It seems like something is attacking my belief in God.

It all started when I read an article about children and women, lots of them, being sold as prostitutes all over the world. Most of the children don’t even know what sex is yet. These women and children are constantly raped, until they won’t pass as a virgin anymore, according to the article I’ve read. And when the children grow up, they don’t know anything but to sell sex so they have no choice but to do it to survive. The numbers of the victims are plenty, Bro. Eli. They are innocent children but they have been dragged into this kind of business. I believe you’ve also heard of this kind of thing, sex trafficking which is a big business done by many countries, especially in the third world.

My problem is that, I don’t know what to think anymore. Something is lingering in my mind, telling me not to believe in God anymore, although I’m really, really trying hard to disregard this thought inside my mind but whenever I think of what’s happening to these innocent children and poor women, it really makes me sad. Why does God allow this to happen to many innocent Children? It makes me wonder also if God exists (although I really try hard to fight this thought) because of things like this that happen. I’m sorry if it seemed I’m questioning God’s authority, but I don’t really know what to do and think anymore. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for being so weak at this time but I really need your help in this. 

What should I do? Please help me Bro. Eli. 

Marcus

Dear Marcus,

Evil is everywhere. The whole world now “lieth in wickedness”.

1 JOHN 5:9
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

The root cause of all evil is the rebellious Satan, that now deceives the world.

REVELATION 12:7-9
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

There are religions or faith which do not believe in the existence of the devil. One good example is one of the false Christs prophesied by the Bible in the person of Jose Luis Miranda, which was interviewed by NBC, and said in international television that the devil or Satan does not exist.

Some of the teachings of Jose Luis De Jesus Miranda, leader of Growing in Grace are:

…Sin no longer exists
…There’s no such thing as “the devil”
…Prayer is a waste of time
…All religious leaders are liars

The Bible never speaks of vain things or things unreal.

JAMES 4:5
Do ye think that the Scripture saith in vain…

Every word of God conveys truth and wisdom.

PSALMS 119:160
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever.

PROVERBS 8:8
All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

The word of God speaks of the devil and demons. They are realities, although not seen by the human eyes. Their works and devices are manifested among human beings.

REVELATION 16:14
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The devil is not only concerned about the leaders of the world, but also to judges, magistrates, and religious leaders. Their victims are the innocent, the ignorant, and the poor.

JOB 9:24
The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

2 CORINTHIANS 11:13-15
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Some of their victims are the unsuspecting.

ROMANS 16:17-18 (ASV)
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent.

They even show miracles to deceive people.

MATTHEW 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

These are some of the tangible realities proving the existence of the devil and demons in this world. Anybody who will say that the devil and demons do not exist is showing their utter ignorance of God’s word and realities.

The evil that you are mentioning about children and women being exploited as sex slaves of the opportunistic, abusive, rich, and powerful people in society are works of the devil.

JAMES 3:15-16
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

The evil that you see and hear makes you doubt of the existence of God. I am sorry to hear this from you. This is the common thinking of people who spend a little effort — or none at all, in searching for realities in life. They say that if God exists and is real, why does He allow these things to happen? But this thinking is neither logical nor scientific.

Scientifically, chaos is opposed to order. Mutation is opposed to the regular characteristics of a gene or a chromosome. It is an alteration of the normal process.

Do you believe that we have things, traits, and characteristics of every existing thing in this world which we may consider normal? I believe you do. Normally, a parent cares for his or her child. Normally, a hen cares for its chicks. Normally, a dove feeds its young. Normal people have in them the feeling of love, care, compassion, and respect for others. This is reality. But there are those who murder and rape their own children. There are those who have no pity towards others. These are things abnormal. All these things are caused by the influence of a reality that exists: the devil.

The existence of the devil proves the existence of God. God hates evil. He does not want evil to happen to anyone; but there is another reality to consider. He has given His creatures the power to choose between good and evil. He made us with the power to decide for ourselves, to choose, to dislike — making us better than a robot. I will — and perhaps you, also — not want to be a robot. The greatest gift of God in our being is the power to decide for ourselves. He wants us to obey Him at will and not by force.

ISAIAH 1:19
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

The cause of evil is the improper use of our free will. But we must not doubt God’s justice. Victims of evil will be rewarded justice in God’s perfect time. The question with some of us is we only consider what is ‘now’ and what is ‘seen’. God is eternal; and there is eternity that comes ahead. Surely, every evil act will be punished and every victim will be comforted.

ISAIAH 13:11
And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

He is not slow or slack about His promise, but is long-suffering for He waits for sinners to repent and realize their mistakes; and does not want anybody to perish.

2 PETER 3:9 (RSV)
  The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

This is being abused by many, but it will satisfy God’s justice for them when they are punished with eternal damnation.

ECCLESIASTES 8:11
Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:11-12
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

God is a God of perfect justice. Hope in your heart that there is a time — a perfect time for God’s intervention… and it is coming soon!

May God enlighten you.

God Bless you.

The Old Covenant Can Not Sanctify Anymore

1/20/2018 1 Comments

New covenant versus the old

This is a reply to Scott Fogg’s on my article entitled “The Rationale Why God Created Woman” posted last July 3, 2007. His comment is as follows:

“It’s interesting that you should mention Luke 19:40. For in the history of the Adventist Church, the visions that Ellen White had were first given to a man. But when this man refused to share what God had given him, God turned to Ellen and gave her the visions. It was only after she began to share what God had shown her that this man was emboldened to step forward and share what God had shown him as well. 

And as far as Balaam goes, does it really matter whether or not he was an Israelite? God still spoke to him through the mule. 

Regardless of whether or not you believe Ellen White was a prophetess, your interpretation of the Bible is marginalizing women. While I do believe there are things that women are better suited for (and likewise, men), to say that women have no place outside of the home is silly and insulting. 

When Jesus and His apostles were preaching, it was in a very different world. Can you imagine if a woman had risen up to lead the church in 30 AD? It would have been too subversive for any culture or religion to handle at the time. The church would have been ignored or destroyed entirely. Which is why you have Jesus, the prophets, and the apostles downplaying the role of the woman in the church. But today, in the 21st century, there is no reason that a woman can’t lead. 

Shouldn’t the Christian church be empowering all of its members? God doesn’t change, but society does. That’s only logical. And we see God working in new and exciting ways every day. Why would you want to limit God by effectively taking away half His congregation and relegating them to the kitchen?

I don’t see how any of this is “sensible,” and my study of the Bible has *NOT* led me into the same understanding it somehow had led you. I’m sorry.” 

- Scott

Dear Brother Scott,

False accusations are prohibited in your ‘adopted’ Ten Commandments.

Nowhere in my article did I say that women are only meant for the kitchen. A little study will tell you that the best of cooks and chefs in international kitchens are male. Your answers are false accusations to somebody who cares for the enlightenment of your soul. Such is prohibited in the Ten Commandments.

I am obliged to repeat that in the Church of God, we esteem, with the highest of regards, our women. They occupy vital administrative positions in the Church like, being treasurers, auditors, and the likes. It is not to disgrace or to dishonor a woman if you say that she must be under the authority of man.

1 PETER 3:7 
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

Regarding a woman as a weaker vessel is honor unto her, according to Peter — a former seventh day keeper converted to the Church of God.

You accused me of marginalizing women; and you said that it is silly and foolish to say that women have no place outside the home. Did I ever say that women have no place outside the home? Or are you lying? Remember, “Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor”.


EXODUS 20:16 
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Your idea, that it is not timely for women to lead the first century church because it will be too subversive against their culture and religion; that is why Jesus Christ and the apostles downplayed the role of women in the Church, is really silly and foolish. And the notion that because it is now the 21st century there is no reason to prohibit women leading the Church, is utmost foolishness. Why?

The reason given by Paul prohibiting women to usurp authority over the man is not because it was then too early for women to take the role of leading the Church but…

1 TIMOTHY 2:11-14 
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

…because in the order of God’s priority, the man came first; and the woman is prone to deceit. The teachings written by the apostles, particularly those of the Apostle Paul, are commandments of the Lord.

1 CORINTHIANS 14:37 
If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

And one of those commandments of the Lord is what he wrote before verse 37. Let us read verses 34 to 36 of chapter 14 of 1 Corinthians.

1 CORINTHIANS 14:34-36 
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. 
36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

The Apostle Paul asked the women of Corinth, “What? came the word of God out from you?”. God’s words are first entrusted to a man, and then it is relayed to a woman (or came it unto you only).

Remember, Brother Scott, these things the Apostle Paul wrote are commandments of the Lord. Are these commandments meant only for the first century church? Are they to be disregarded in the 21st century? O, c’mon!

ACTS 1:2, 8 
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen… 
8 …But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Note that the commandments received by the apostles is that they were to testify and preach unto the uttermost part of the earth until the end of the age!

MATTHEW 28:20 
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

It is really idiotic to say that the prohibition for women to lead the church of God is only to be observed in the 1st century and should be disregarded by the 21st. I can not help but quote and copy your erroneous idea that follows (which is highlighted in red letters):

“Shouldn’t the Christian church be empowering all of its members? God doesn’t change, but society does. That’s only logical. And we see God working in new and exciting ways every day. Why would you want to limit God by effectively taking away half His congregation and relegating them to the kitchen?

I don’t see how any of this is “sensible,” and my study of the Bible has *NOT* led me into the same understanding it somehow had led you. I’m sorry.”

You said, “Shouldn’t the Christian church be empowering all of its members”. Did God give power to the Church to empower all its members? What verse tells this so? Are all the members of the SDAC empowered? Where there (in the almost 200 year history of your church) other women that led your church? Or was it only Ellen G. White? Will you answer these questions honestly?

You said, “God doesn’t change, but society does”. I appreciate that you know that God does not change! But, even if human society changes — everyday, will the true Church of God change its doctrines with it? Noooooo!

ROMANS 12:2 
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

In fact, it is prohibited for God’s chosen people to mingle with those who are given to change.

PROVERBS 24:21 
My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

The teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ were not meant to be changed. Unlike the Law of Moses or the Ten Commandments, they were given to be observed until the end of the world.

MATTHEW 28:20 
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The Law of Moses was until John.

LUKE 16:16
The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

The Law of Moses was for the Israelites.

MALACHI 4:4 
Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

These are God’s commandments given to Moses on the mountain and was called by God the “Law of Moses”. Just like the commandments given by God to Jesus Christ for Christians, which was called “The Law of Christ”.

GALATIANS 6:2 
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

The Law of Christ came from God; just like the Law of Moses.

JOHN 12:49-50 
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

What is this “Law of Moses” given to him by God on the mountain, that has with it statutes and judgment?

EXODUS 31:18 
And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

These are the Ten Commandments written on two tables of stones with the finger of God.

DEUTERONOMY 4:13 
And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

It is also called “The Covenant”, which, later, was declared the “Old Covenant”.

HEBREWS 8:13 
In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

It was the law that was changed when the priesthood was changed.

HEBREWS 7:12 
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

Jesus Christ succeeded Moses and his priesthood.

HEBREWS 3:1-4 
1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; 
2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. 
3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honor than the house. 
4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

In the Christian dispensation, the Law of Moses can not sanctify anymore!

ACTS 13:39 
And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Thus, the change in Sabbath. God Bless.

A Different Shape of Idol Worship

1/13/2018 0 Comments


Dear Bro. Eli,

What is God’s main reason why fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness are considered idolatry in His eyes not only worshipping of graven images as a god? I hope for your nice answers with biblical supports. May the Lord always protect you.

Ally of ADD

Dear Ally of ADD,

Idolatry is the worship of image. The Greek word ‘eidōlolatreia’ means image worship.

eidōlolatreia 
i-do-lol-at-ri’-ah 
From G1497 and G2999; image worship (literally or figuratively): – idolatry. 
(Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionary)

God prohibits the making of images and the likes.

DEUTERONOMY 5:7-9 
7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

These are called idols in the Bible.

PSALMS 115:4-8 
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. 
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: 
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: 
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. 
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

If we are of God, we will not even think that these images have anything divine in them.

ACTS 17:29 
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

The reason why God does not allow us even just to make graven images (because other people claim that they do not worship them) is that, it is impossible to reflect God’s glory on anything except in the being of our Lord Jesus Christ.

ISAIAH 42:8 
I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

HEBREWS 1:3 
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

The Lord Jesus Christ is the “express image” of God’s person! The Father dwells in Him.

JOHN 14:10 
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Not even a small amount of breath is present in any graven image.

HABAKKUK 2:18-19 
18 What profiteth the graven image, that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, even the teacher of lies, that he that fashioneth its form trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? 
19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise! Shall this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.

Kneeling before these idols and praying to them constitute the Old Testament term of idolatry.

ISAIAH 44:13-17 
13 The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house. 
14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it. 
15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshipeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto. 
16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: 
17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshipeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

Why is it that in the New Testament, the term ‘idolatry’ is defined as:

COLOSSIANS 3:5 
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Remember that idolatry means ‘image worship’. Satan, the god of this world, is another god than the Father. Satan has images or appearances.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:22 
Abstain from all appearance of evil.

The word appearance used in the preceding verse means form or shape in Greek.

εἶδος 
eidos 
i’-dos From G1492; a view, that is, form (literally or figuratively): – appearance, fashion, shape, sight. 
(Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionary)

The image or the form of the devil is reflected in these carnal acts: fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness.

Commission of such acts constitutes idolatry or the worship of Satan who is not the true God. Anyone committing such is called an idolater.

EPHESIANS 5:4-5 
4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 
5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

I hope and pray that you will be enlightened by these verses.

God bless you.

Bad Things Happen to the Good, the Bad… and the Ugly

1/06/2018 1 Comments

Good and bad can happen to all.

Apparently, these ‘imaginary allegedly scientific-minded people’ have conceived the idea that bad things should not happen to good people. I believe they believe in earthquakes. Scientifically, it is the movement of the tectonic plates below the surface of the earth. Perhaps, they will ask: “Why do earthquakes affect the good, and the bad, and the ugly?” They must ask science! And if science can not give them the answer, they should also say that science is ‘imaginary’.


But God, my God, in His magnificence, has a convincing answer to an understanding mind.

PROVERBS 8:8-9 
8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. 
9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

In the days of Noah, we are told by the infallible word of God that:

“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” (Genesis 7:11)

No human being in the time of Noah, and even later, when this account was written by Moses more than 3000 years ago, had any knowledge of the broken tectonic plates of the earth. But the Bible has it: proving that the information comes not from a mortal being, but from God.

Until now, no available scientific instrument can predict the exact time of an earthquake; and the Bible tells us the reason why.

HEBREWS 12:26-27 
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

The shaking of the earth, or an earthquake, denotes that the earth will pass away! This is believed by science, especially now that science has proven the demise of heavenly bodies like stars, when they have detected the ‘presence’ of black holes in the universe. The Bible has this to say:

PSALMS 102:25-26 
25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. 
26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

The spread of flu virus in the air, scientifically, is not caused by something evil. Where the direction of the movement of the air is, there the viruses will be carried. The pressure of the air in the sneeze of an infected person may bring the virus and the infection to the person nearest him or within five meters from him. (Source: http://www.health24.com/medical/Condition_centres/777-792-811-1701,16576.asp)

Sneezing is unpredictable, sometimes, even to the person who is going to sneeze. Catching flu is bad, but are we going to blame the air? If the air will not move, then the temperature of the earth will not be comfortable for humans. And in blaming the air, are you going to conclude that the air is ‘imaginary’? Idiots!

Are you going to devise an unfavorable conclusion if the sun, which is good and intended by God for the goodness of good people, to shine even to idiots? I believe even idiots will not blame God for having His sun shine even to those who curse Him.

MATTHEW 5:45 
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

If good things happen even to the bad and the ugly (like you), and you do not complain, why are you going to blame God if a good person is infected by the flu virus? The Bible tells us that at random, this is reality.

ECCLESIASTES 9:2 
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.

Something good may happen to someone who is bad, and something perceived by the ignorant as bad, may happen to good people! But understanding in the word of God will teach us that these are not bad things at all.

ROMANS 8:28 
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

If a good person is cheated (which may be regarded as something bad), he is given by God the chance to pardon and to forgive those who cheated him, thus, making him a better person.

1 CORINTHIANS 6:7 
Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

The person whom you have forgiven realizing his fault and your kindness can also be turned to be a better person! This is God’s equitable dealings with people.

2 PETER 3:9 
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Good things happen to bad people to make them good! Bad things happen to good people to make them cautious, and to teach them to forgive and to have longsuffering, thus, making them not only good, but excellent!

When there is an epidemic of flu, stay away from people that sneeze. Have a little understanding of how the flu virus spreads; cover your nose when somebody sneezes; and avoid crowded places so that you will not catch flu, and later, because of your utter ignorance, blame it to anybody.

Here is a brotherly and a friendly advice, when the sun shines it carries goodness intended for the good of people. Bathe yourself with the sun’s rays. Human skin stimulated by sunlight will produce vitamin D which is good for your body! But do not expose yourself to the sun for too long especially at the peak of its heat, you might destroy yourself then blame the sun because of your ignorance, and forget the good things that it has done for you.

When Should You Go Out in the Sun?

Dr. Mercola´s Comments:

This is an update for my own personal knowledge as for many years I have advised people to avoid the sun from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. if they were at risk of sunburn. Well it turns out that this is the case where a little bit of knowledge can actually be dangerous.

Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is the most serious form of skin cancer, accounting for about three-quarters of all skin cancer deaths.

New research now supports that while avoiding the sun at mid-day will decrease your risk of painful sunburn it will actually increase your cancer risk.

How can this be?

Though he was not an author of the study above, his research found the same findings: that going out in the sun at mid-day is best for your health.

Our recommendation, this is based on work in England and Norway, and the United States, that the optimal time to be in the sun for vitamin D production is near to solar noon as possible. That would be between say 10:00am and 2:00pm. 

The reason is two-fold.

First of all, you need a shorter exposure time because the UVB is more intense.  

Now, the second reason is that when the sun goes down towards the horizon, the UVB is filtered out much more than the UVA. And it turns out that the long wave of ultraviolet called UVA, which runs from about 320 to 400 nanometers, is highly correlated with melanoma -- where the UVB is the one that produces the vitamin D, and that’s from 290 to 315 nanometers,” Dr. Grant explains.

ECCLESIASTES 9:12-13 
12 For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them. 
13 This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:

God Bless.
