  • A father of a third-grader still missing sat quietly on a stool. Tears fell from his face as he waited for news.
  • "I’m speechless. How did this happen? Why did this happen?" asked Norma Bautista, whose son, a student, survived.
  • "How do we explain this to the kids? How are they going to wake up tomorrow and everything’s missing — the school, these houses, their friends," she said. "In an instant, everything’s gone."  CNN
“Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead,  Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. (JOB 1:18-20 ESV)
When we are hit by tragedies we can’t explain, the only thing remains is to come before God and worship.

Jesus can save people with uncertain future but not unbelieving people.

Do not let your uncertainty become unbelief.

우리가 싸우는 이유는 세상을 바꾸려는 것이 아니라, 세상이 우리를 바꾸지 못하게 하려는 것이다.
The reason we fight is not to change the world but we fight not to be changed by it.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

God Is God


God is God even when He doesn’t make sense to us.

Most of the time we are reaping the harvest of sins we have sown since the beginning of history. We cannot blame God for the consequence of our own evil.

Can you trust God when you are afflicted with great pain and sorrow? When life’s tragedy hits, when you’re betrayed and rejected, when you cannot find a reason? Can you trust God even when standing next to God seems so unpopular to the world? YES, YES, YES! God is absolutely trustworthy and true.

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him. (psalms 32:10)

The truth of God’s word is not dependent upon our experience.

Truths we must believe:

1. God is completely sovereign.

2. God is infinite in wisdom.

3. God is perfect in love.

God is God and we are not. Let Him be God.

Will you be ready when persecution comes in America? Many will abandon their faith then. Only the persecution of the church will sort out the real ones from the fake ones.

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’” (Matthew 13)
