What Is God’s Will Behind Frequent Disasters?
A magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit the waters off Jose Abad Santos town in Davao Occidental on Thursday, January 21. Although it didn’t cause much loss, it gave us food for thought: Pandemics, earthquakes, super typhoons, mudslides, floods, famines, and other disasters continue one after another — Why are there so many disasters now? What is God’s will? Let’s look at a passage of God’s words together and then we will understand.
Almighty God says, “In the phases of God’s work, salvation still takes the form of various disasters, and none who is doomed can escape them. Only in the end will it be possible to achieve a situation on earth that is ‘as serene as the third heaven: Here, living things, great and small, coexist in harmony, never once engaging in “conflicts of mouth and tongue.”’ One aspect of God’s work is to conquer all mankind and gain the chosen people through His words; another is to conquer all sons of rebellion by way of various disasters. This is one part of the large-scale work of God. Only in this way can the kingdom on earth that God wants be fully achieved, and this is the part of His work that is pure gold.”
Now, the Lord has already returned, and He is Almighty God, Christ of the last days. Almighty God has expressed all the truths that save mankind to purify and perfect God’s chosen people. In the meantime, He uses disasters to remind people and force them to quickly seek and examine God’s end-time work and return to God, so that we can have the opportunity to receive God’s protection and survive disasters. This is one of the means by which God saves people. Those who hear someone testify of the Lord’s return but blindly resist and refuse to seek or accept will lose God’s protection and fall into disasters.
