God is sovereign, and He knocks at the heart of every man, giving him the opportunity to come. Now, you might warn away and turn it down, and–and shake your head to it and walk away, say, “Ah, it’s just a funny feeling; I’ll get over it.” But anyhow, it was God, God speaking to you.

God never even brings judgment upon the earth without first giving the people a warning. God never does nothing without declaring it first what He’s going to do. And He gives people a choice, … God is infinite and His program and His ideas are all perfect..

God is patient. He does not always immediately show His anger, but rather grants a person time for repentance. However, people often do not draw the right conclusions from these extended times of grace. They do not repent of their sins, but continue as before. Our age has been given new warning signs. We are faced, for instance, with the problem of Climate change (signs of the times)

The cries of starving humanity are coming up before God, while by every species of oppression and extortion men are piling up colossal fortunes. The judgments of God are part of His mercy! Did not God send warning after warning of coming judgments to the wicked cities to repent and ward off the impending doom, as with Moses and Egypt, Daniel and Babylon, and Jonah and Nineveh?. Which one repented and thwarted His judgments.

As Peter wrote to his readers, “Since all these things [speaking of the present heavens and earth] are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth gin which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace” (2 Pet. 3:11-14).


Gott ist souverän und Er klopft an das Herz eines jeden Menschen und gibt ihm die Möglichkeit zu kommen. Jetzt könnten Sie warnen und es ablehnen und – und den Kopf schütteln und weggehen und sagen: “Ah, es ist nur ein komisches Gefühl; ich werde darüber hinwegkommen.” Aber wie auch immer, es war Gott, Gott sprach zu dir.

Gott bringt niemals ein Gericht über die Erde, ohne vorher das Volk zu warnen. Gott tut niemals nichts, ohne vorher zu erklären, was Er tun wird. Und er gibt den Menschen die Wahl … Gott ist unendlich und sein Programm und seine Ideen sind alle perfekt.

Gott ist geduldig. Er zeigt nicht immer sofort Seinen Zorn, sondern gewährt einem Menschen Zeit zur Umkehr. Aus diesen längeren Gnadenzeiten ziehen die Menschen jedoch oft nicht die richtigen Schlussfolgerungen. Sie bereuen ihre Sünden nicht, sondern machen weiter wie bisher. Unser Zeitalter hat neue Warnsignale erhalten. Wir stehen zum Beispiel vor dem Problem des Klimawandels (Zeichen der Zeit)

Die Schreie der hungernden Menschheit kommen vor Gott auf, während durch jede Art von Unterdrückung und Erpressung Männer kolossales Vermögen aufhäufen. Die Urteile Gottes sind Teil seiner Barmherzigkeit! Hat Gott nicht eine Warnung nach der anderen an die bösen Städte gesandt, um das bevorstehende Schicksal zu bereuen und abzuwehren, wie bei Mose und Ägypten, Daniel und Babylon und Jona und Ninive? Welcher bereute und vereitelte seine Urteile.

Wie Petrus seinen Lesern schrieb: „Da all diese Dinge (die von den gegenwärtigen Himmeln und der Erde sprechen) so aufgelöst werden sollen, welche Art von Menschen sollten Sie in einem Leben der Heiligkeit und Gottseligkeit sein und auf das Kommen des warten und es beschleunigen? Tag Gottes, an dem die Himmel in Brand gesetzt und aufgelöst werden und die Himmelskörper schmelzen, wenn sie brennen! Aber gemäß seiner Verheißung warten wir auf neue Himmel und einen neuen Erdgin, in dem die Gerechtigkeit wohnt. Darum, Geliebte, sei fleißig, da du darauf wartest, von ihm ohne Flecken oder Makel und in Frieden gefunden zu werden “(2. Pet. 3: 11-14).


Ang Diyos ay makapangyarihan, at Siya ay kumakatok sa puso ng bawat tao, na nagbibigay sa atin ng pagkakataong lumapit sa kanya. Ngayon, maaari mong baliwalain o tanggihan ito, at – at iiling ang iyong ulo at sabihin, “Ah, ito ay isang nakakatawang pakiramdam lamang; hindi ko ito papansinin.” Ngunit kahit papaano, ito ay Diyos, ang Diyos ay nakikipag-usap sa iyo.

Ang Diyos ay hindi man naghahatid ng paghatol sa mundo nang hindi binigyan ng babala ang mga tao. Ang Diyos ay hindi gumawa nang walang pagpapahayag muna nito kung ano ang Kanyang gagawin. At binibigyan niya ang isang tao ng isang pagpipilian, … Ang Diyos ay walang hanggan at ang Kanyang programa at ang Kanyang mga ideya ay perpekto ..

Mapagpasensya ang Diyos. Hindi niya palaging ipinapakita agad ang Kanyang galit, ngunit sa halip ay nagbibigay ng oras ng isang tao para sa pagsisisi. Gayunpaman, ang mga tao ay madalas na hindi nakakakuha ng tamang mga konklusyon mula sa mga pinalawak na oras na ito ng biyaya. Hindi sila nagsisisi sa kanilang mga kasalanan, ngunit nagpapatuloy tulad ng dati. Ang ating panahon ay nagbigay ng mga bagong palatandaan ng babala. Halimbawa, nahaharap tayo sa problema ng pagbabago sa Klima (mga palatandaan ng oras)

Ang pag-iyak ng gutom na sangkatauhan ay dumarating sa harap ng Diyos, habang sa bawat species ng pang-aapi at pang-aapi ng mga ay nagtatakip ng malaking kapalaran. Ang mga paghatol ng Diyos ay bahagi ng Kanyang awa! Hindi ba nagpadala ang babala pagkatapos ng babala ng darating na mga paghuhukom sa mga masasamang lunsod upang magsisi at pigilan ang paparating na kapahamakan, tulad nina Moises sa Egypt, Daniel sa Babilonya, at Jonas sa Nineve ?. Ang ilan ay nagsisi at pinigilan ang Kanyang mga paghuhukom.

Tulad ng isinulat ni Peter sa kanyang mga mambabasa, “Yamang ang lahat ng mga bagay na ito [nagsasalita tungkol sa kasalukuyang langit at lupa] ay gagamitin, kung anong uri ng tao ang dapat mong maging sa buhay ng kabanalan at kabanalan, naghihintay at mapabilis ang pagdating ng araw ng Diyos, dahil kung saan ang langit ay masusunog at matunaw, at ang mga kalangitan ng langit ay matutunaw habang nagsusunog! Ngunit ayon sa kanyang pangako naghihintay tayo ng mga bagong langit at isang bagong lupa na tinitirahan ng katuwiran. Samakatuwid, mga minamahal, dahil naghihintay ka sa mga ito, maging masigasig ka na matagpuan niya na walang bulok o walang kapintasan, at sa kapayapaan ”(2 Ped. 3: 11-14).

    I mean what’s the hold up? Why wait and for him to continue to allow people to suffer? He can come and end all wickedness in a instant and do away with all this craziness

    God could end it all now. He didn’t have to make it in the first place. And he didn’t have to give us free will. But He IS God. He is love and light and holy. He can do whatever he wants. Just because we don’t understand it, doesn’t mean God should do it differently. It takes humility to accept that God does not have to answer to us and that he knows better than us.
