Answer Thanks for your email. I do pray for the peace in Israel and it will come. But first must come a false peace from a false Messiah who will blaspheme God Almighty The one that you believe in today will one day send a Messiah.
Well, of course we Christians believe that the Messiah has already come in the person of Jesus. The question is, why does God, who knows the future before it happens allow things to go on, especially those that have tragic endings?
The answer is quite simple but takes faith to accept. The answer is found in Genesis at the beginning of creation. When God created everything in 7 days He finished by saying "It was good" to everything He created. Around Genesis 3 suddenly a serpent appears You know the story You may ask why did God put satan in the garden anyway?
He must have known they would not have been able to overcome satan!
God put satan in the garden after He created it. How long after, the Old Testament does not tell us. You must remember, when God made the heavens and earth He said they were good. He would not have made that statement with satan on earth.
So sometime between chapter 1 and 3 of Genesis he placed him on the earth. But God did this for a reason Satan was merely a tool God used to bring them and us today to that realization.

But he did leave a few nations around to test them and see if they would stray from serving Him. They did stray and served other gods as history foretells. Why would God do this? The simple answer comes down to this God wants us to rely completely and totally on Him even when it is not logical or prudent to do so.
He wants our first reaction to be to come to Him when things begin to fall a part, not to rely on reason, logic or the gods of other nations.
God uses various things to draw us to Him that makes us aware that we need Him. Sometimes He places pitfalls in front of us to see who we are relying on or to see if we will question the situation.
It is not now nor has it ever been about satan.
He did not make Adam and Eve sin nor does he have the power to make you sin. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: But it is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that we are able to overcome these doubts.What Did God Put Me Here To Do?
