I suppose so, I am coming to God now but I have periodically recurring doubts and insecurities because I haven’t figured out why He waits so long to intervene in so many lives and why he doesn’t intervene in everyone’s lives form birth.
“He waits so long to intervene in so many lives and why he doesnt intervene in everyones lives form birth.”
But he does...
You need to study Angels and what their job is.. they are relentless.
First, God created us to have free agency, making our seeking Him and a relationship with Him the more precious
Second, God does not intervene in all tragedies because to do so would make God 'manipulatable' and thus not God as we have been taught to think of Him; reacting to the actions of others everytime makes you slave to their actions; put another way, God cannot be tempted
I hope that helps ...
My dad died in 1973, and in 1978, I experienced a “visitation” from him, and he was not alone. A visitation is different from a dream in that you see bright colors and can smell scents and detect temperatures of the air around you, that the people involved in the visitation are very clear to you, you see much detail and you can hear yourself and them speak to you very clearly,and they have a specific message to leave with you,and then the visitation ends.
I fell asleep one nite & immediately I was sitting at a picnic table in the center of the yard of my family home in Chicago...(in reality we were living in the Chicago suburbs.) We never owned a picnic table, but here I was sitting at one non-the-less. It was a sunny, warm day, you could feel the heat from the sun upon your face and smell the warm air,and all the colors were vivid and bright. First thing I remember is looking down at the picnic table and to the left. I noticed that I couldn't see the end of the table..it went through our yard, through the fence, across the street and through the house right across from ours. I then looked to the right of the table and noticed that the table went through the back of our yard, through the fence, through the alley and through the fence and the home behind our house. I then looked down in front of me at the table & noticed how very narrow in depth this table was..it was about 10-12” wide..and I commented out out to myself that if two people placed their folded hands on the table across from one another, their hands would almost touch. And then I looked up and saw my dad sitting across from me and he was smiling. (Before he died, he was very despondent..he died at age 53 from cancer.) To his right was standing a tall man, with white hair in a dutch boy haircut down to to his earlobe, and he was wearing a white collared short sleeve dress shirt and white pants. I noticed that he was standing soo very close to my dad that this man's lower left arm was almost pressing against my dad's upper right arm,and I commented out loud that you could barely pass a piece of paper between their arms, the man was standing that close. The face of the man literally glowed, and I get the instant impression that this was my dad's guide, his Guardian Angel. And then I looked directly at my dad as he said to me, “Joan, death isn't what you think it is.” And I noticed that his lips weren’t moving as he spoke, that I could hear his words in my head,and I said out loud to myself, “wow~ my dad is speaking to me telepathically.” And then I said out loud, “well, what do I think death is??” And then the visitation was over and I woke up.
Well, five years passed after this visitation & I felt that there was more to this visitation than the words my father spoke to me. What was the message behind the symbolism behind the very, very narrow dimension of the depth of the picnic table? What was the message behind the symbolism of my not being able to see a beginning or end to the picnic table? And I couldn't’ figure it out, until one day when it come to me like a bolt of lightening. The meaning of the never ending picnic table is that when our loved ones and friends depart from us, this is permanent and never ending. The meaning of the very,very narrow depth of the picnic table,and I could hear my father's voice saying this in my head, is that “though we may be departed from you, WE ARE ALWAYS NEAR.” (I then understood that symbolism of two folded hands across from one another, and how these two hands almost touch, but not quite.”)
I told this story to my family priest and to a few psychics and they felt that this, indeed, was a visitation..it was too vivid, and the message left with me was very revealing. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before or since. I am so grateful. Thought I would share this experience with you all.
“I havent figured out why He waits so long to intervene in so many lives and why he doesnt intervene in everyones lives form birth.”
As the Author of Time He DOES so intervene but we may not like the earthly outcome. God continually tells us to look past the earthly plane to a place beyond pain of any kind.
Freedom462, you should take great comfort in the fact that no one comes to God save the spirit draws them to him, God is directly reaching out to you,
Your questions are not unanswerable mysteries, it just requires continuing study in the word to discern the spiritual times and seasons that have to be fulfilled before all things are restored (as its written)
But for now, God gives us our complete freedom, he released us in him. It’s what Jesus meant when he said in John Chapter 8, who the Son sets free is free indeed, its Satan that would directly control and take and enforce, using everything this world has to entice us with, and as this is his world (until the times and seasons come to their full) he can and does just that, as often as he will,
Read the the little three chapter book of Habakkuk, he had the same questions,
He doesn't wait so long to intervene in so many lives; He intervenes in our lives at the moment we are conceived, or at that time before time began when, in love and delight, He thought of each of us. Our lives are full of the touches of God. The very fact that your question moved me and others to respond to you is His doing. He gives us constant help and blessings and guidance, and it is only our stubbornness that keeps us from being aware of this, not any reluctance on His part to step in and act in our lives. We are each given all the grace we need to find the Right, to act rightly, to recognize Him and to draw closer to Him. He is not inactive in anyone's life.
But He's not going to beat you over the head. If you believe in Him in the same way you believe in the existence of gravity, then you're a robot, not a joyful and living child who has come to trust in a benevolent father.
