Why doesn't he stop what is happening in the world today? We know God is watching and can see all. There are good people dying every day or being killed, they don't deserve that. You could say when this happens, when that happens, or when God does anything. I do believe in my Lord God, don't get me wrong. But to say when this or when that happens to me when I talk about it isn't enough. You will have to give a better explanation for why the suffering is still happening, when he has the power to stop the evil this very second. I am alive yes, but my heart cries out for those who have lost their lives over diseases or being shot to death by another.

It is normal to ask the question as to why God doesn't stop the suffering. Let me give you a simple explanation. God made angels and then made Adam and Eve. One of the angels challenged God by telling him that he is a bad ruler of his creations and that we could manage without him. Actually, that we can do better without God telling us what to do. He convinced Adam and Eve to side with him by disobeying God. God had no choice but to give us enough time to see what happens without God directly involved in our lives. The present world is what happens when God is not directly in charge. Jesus gave us signs and indications that would tell us when the time would be up. What we see happening today are a proof not only of the failure of the devil and man to rule the earth properly but also an indication that the time is just about up. Something big should happen soon. How soon? We have to wait and see.

I see people posting what they believe to be the answers. But none of the responses I see truly answer the question. When this happens, when God does this or that, or know body knows is all I'm getting. I know there are signs, and people have been saying this for years. But how many signs do we need to be called enough to stop the evil on this earth? I ask a simple question. I don't need a Bible lesson or a read scripture. I seek a particular answer.

Do you already have the answer? If you do then share it with us?

No I do not have the answer or I would not be asking the question at hand. That would be kind of silly don't you think? lol. I simply seek the right answer, not when this happens, ifs, when God does, or we don't knows, or a story. When I come up with the particular answer that I seek, then I will share it with you and the other billions of people on earth.

Suffering exists because mankind sinned, and still sins. However, much of it will end when Christ returns (Revelation 20 and more). Getting back to suffering, while many try to help the needy, there are case where evil people disrupt matters. Sometimes a kind nation will send food and supplies to needy people, but then it is stolen. Why doesn't God do something? He has. He sent His Son to redeem us from our sins. However, He will not violate our will, so we have to make the choice to surrender to Christ. But, like I mentioned for Revelation 20, the time will come when it most sinfulness will cease.

my friend,everything has its own purpose. the second coming of the Lord is really drawing near,evidenced by those things you enumerated. by the way, even though good people suffered a lot before dying, at the end they will end up together with the Lord,that is much important than anything else. as the Bible says,there will be no suffering anymore once we reconciled with Him.
