WHY DOES GOD ALLOW DISASTERS AND CATASTROPHES ?

There is a reason for Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Floods,and other Disasters and Catastrophes .We sometimes don’t understand why God allows these things to happen. We as believers are asked these questions by people who don’t know the Lord, and can’t understand why. Actually it is a chance for us to witness and minister to them. We need to stand strong in faith and show these people the love of Jesus by praying for them, and helping them to understand.” All things work together for good to them that love the Lord.”(Romans 8:28). Who can understand the ways of the Lord? Just believe that God is in control of every little thing. Jesus said “Not one sparrow shall fall, or one blade of grass shall die unless God allows it. And the very hairs of your head are all numbered”.(Matthew 10 & Luke 12). God is a loving, just, Holy, and pure God, and he has a purpose in everything, and everything will work out for his purpose in the long run. As we get closer to the end, more and more disasters and catastrophes will come. It has been predicted by the Lord as a sign of the End Times. Sometimes he punishes the wicked, and, or releases the saved and receives them into Heaven, or both. Sometimes disasters and wars are man made. Remember there is life after death in a better place forever for the believer, and this life is so short and temporary. If the Lord takes a believer home it is so much better for them, and we will shortly see them again. “And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.  Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:2-5). For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:21).There may be many reasons that the Lord allows catastrophes to happen. Sometimes it’s to put the fear of God in everyone and help us to wake up and turn to Jesus! “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8,9). “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” (Romans 11:34a).”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” (Psalm 111:10). A good healthy fear of the LORD is a good thing to have. Lord help us to be a witness of you’re love no matter what happens. Amen? ” we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:8).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
