A Message From Peter James
 


 

Why God ?
 


      

                                                              Tsunami - Part  1

                                   Tsunami - Part 2

 

The question on everyone’s lips, and which is currently widely discussed in the media is this.

If God is a loving God then why did He allow such a catastrophic event as the recent

Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami to take place, when He could have prevented it.

The leaders of the various religious groups, and atheists all sound off,

but do not really address, much less answer the question.

The conclusions vary from what will be will be, to this proves that God is not a loving God.

 

The reality is that the question is a wrong one, with its implied suggestion that the Eternal

is not really a God of Love at all.

 

We should certainly ask why is the world hurtling rapidly down a precipice with only destruction in sight.

It is an entirely different matter to blame the Eternal God, and then to claim that He is not a loving God.

We seem to forget that He came in the person of Jesus Christ to personally pay the penalty for our sins.

He paid the ultimate price.

He gave His life for us, whom He created.

 

Matthew 20:28  Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto,

but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

 

John 15:13  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

 

My mother used to say,

“Who can’t hear will feel.”

This is a profound truth that many of us have not grasped in the slightest.

 

The Eternal God gave a set of commandments which were to be obeyed.

The general feeling is ‘Oh no, God does not want us to enjoy ourselves,

He is just a spoil sport, who is waiting for us to transgress so that He can

then enjoy the perverted pleasure of swatting us to oblivion.”

 

That is exactly what our adversary Satan wants us to think,

and for the most part he has succeeded in his objective,

but this is not the case at all.

The Eternal is deeply saddened at how we, His children have turned out,

in spite of everything that He has done for us.

He gave us marvellous bodies, a wonderful and incredibly beautiful creation,

and the sacrifice of His only Son.

 

The commands were given so that we would be able to avoid actions that had automatic penalties.

They were and are immutable laws that would protect us, if we obeyed them.

 

These laws were for our benefit not His.

The Eternal God does not gain anything if we obey or disobey.

 

We can compare it to a bird which is designed in minute detail to observe the laws

of aerodynamics which govern its flight.

If one day as I look at the bird, it decides, blow that, I am going to do my own thing.

I am not going to open my wings and flap them.

I am going to jump from the top of this tree.

A few moments later it lands on the ground with a broken neck, one very dead bird.

Now in one way that does not affect me in the slightest.

In another way it does.

If it is in my way and I have to pass it, I have to bury it, or suffer the sight and the smell

of its decaying body, which will quickly attract flies, which result in more flies.

The point is that even inconsequential things can affect much more than they appear initially to do.

How much more do major activities affect the whole of humanity.

 

Science tells us everything is interconnected.

When we rebel here, not only do we suffer, but others elsewhere suffer as well.

 

It is only when we ignore or interfere with laws that we reap the penalty of our actions.

The minute atoms were quite happy following their designed paths.

We intervened, and the end result was atom and nuclear bombs of awesome power.

 

God’s Laws will not simply go away because we either pretend that they do not exist

or we do not agree with them,

as they are Old Covenant and do not apply to us.

We break them at our peril.

 

The laws created by man are utterly unjust.

Often they penalise the victim and exonerate the criminal.

The apostle Paul states that the laws are administered by the unjust.

 

1 Corinthians 6:1  Dare any of you, having a matter against another,

go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

 

Unwittingly, in our minds we can then translate the injustice of man’s made laws,

which we all see and experience, to the righteous, merciful and just laws of the Creator.

We just become anti-law.

This is a great and tragic mistake.  

 

Many Christians now in practice say that we should tolerate idolatry,

under the guise of freedom of choice.

Many Christian ministers support illegal wars, lying, stealing, and coveting.

They close their eyes or are ignorant of the far reaching consequences of weapons in use today.

These weapons indiscriminately kill not only the enemy but the soldiers sent to kill the enemy.

Depleted Uranium which is found in many weapons,

kills the unborn and poisons the environment for 4.6 billion years.

It is unbelievable that Christians are supporting the use of such things, which is actually

affecting them although they are many thousands of miles away.

It is madness.

Most Christians no longer have sound minds.

 

2 Timothy 1:7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,

and of love, and of a sound mind.  

 

Fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism is now deemed acceptable by many.

We even have leaders of large ‘churches’ convicted,

and imprisoned for paedophile activity and child abuse.

The Roman Catholic priests don’t tend to go to prison, they are too smart for that,

but they are continuously paying countless millions in compensation to abused individuals,

often going back decades.

 

Some say that we are under grace, and that we have no need to worry about being under the law.

That this is Old Covenant, and we are under the New Covenant,

but under the New Covenant the rules are in fact stricter.

 

Matthew 5:28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust

after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

 

Regarding the Sabbath,

it is true that we are under the New Covenant,

and we are therefore enjoying Christ our Sabbath rest,

but that does not do away with resting on the Sabbath.

We debate this endlessly, meanwhile the vast majority of humanity is frustrated and stressed out,

as they take prozac and all sorts of medicines in an attempt to solve a spiritual problem with

a physical solution.  

 

Witchcraft is now acceptable and financially supported by the government,

in the supposedly Christian nations.

 

Can we really be asking God Why did you allow the catastrophic events to take place?

 

Do we not consider that the end result of iniquity is destruction.

The land will literally vomit us out of it.

 

Leviticus 20:22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all mine ordinances,

and do them; that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, vomit you not out.

 

Simple logic clearly shows that if everyone was keeping all the commandments of the Eternal,

the world would not be in the worldwide crisis in which we find ourselves at the moment.

If we were obedient to the will of the Eternal,

and stop trying to make our will His will.

Most, if not all problems would vanish.

 

There are literally multitudes who would be out of work if we obeyed the commandments.

What would the police do?

What would the courts do?

What would lawyers do?

What would armies, navies, and air forces do?

What would the various armament manufacturers do?

What would the locksmiths, safe makers and security companies do?

 

There would be no gambling.

There would be no prostitution.

There would be no aids nor other sexually transmitted diseases.

There would be no illegitimate children.

There would be no pollution, no poisoned air, water and food.

There would be no dishonest dealing of any kind, such as the banking industry .

There would be no Satanically driven governments or organisations.

There would be no false impoverishing religions.

There would be no slavery, oppression and plundering of the poor, widows,

the fatherless and orphans as exists right now.

 

This list is certainly very incomplete.

I am sure that you can easily add to it if you think about it.

 

All the commandments are summarised as love God and love your neighbour as yourself.

 

If we consider Adam and Eve, we find that they were told,

not to eat of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil,

because to eat of it would result in death.

They had free will, but they should have taken of the Tree of life.

It was a plain straightforward matter of choice.

 

The Eternal made man to live not to die.

His heart’s desire was that man should live, even live eternally.

Before man even touched the tree of death,

he had been warned of the disastrous result if he disobeyed.

He did not eat of the tree in ignorance but in rebellion.

 

We see this clearly mentioned again in:

 

Deuteronomy 30:19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,

that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:

therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

 

If I tell my child who has understanding not to put his hand in the fire or he will get burned,

and he ignores me, feeling that he knows better, it cannot be said that I do not love him when

in rebellion he puts his hand in the fire, and then gets severely burned, and suffers horrendously.

It simply does not make sense.

 

The commands are there for our good.

We ignore them at our peril.

We cannot carry out good works, rituals,

traditions or even fastings to nullify the penalty of our rebelliousness.

 

If my child, as mentioned above, even fasted for several days and then put his hand in the fire,

he will still get burned.

If he bowed to the ground three times a day praying to a stick, a stone, or a figment of his imagination,

it would not change the outcome of getting burnt when he put his hand in the fire.

 

Exodus 20:1   And God spake all these words, saying,

2  I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.

3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,

or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,

or that is in the water under the earth:

5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:

for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers

upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

 

It can be shown that these commandments are international and eternal and affect

every human being.

In the previous document Tsunami - Part  1, I showed that we, Christians are responsible

for what is happening in the world today.

Instead of pointing the way and setting an example, we are leading the way to death and destruction.

We are adulterous, we lie, we cheat, we steal, we kill.

We start killing the unborn, then the children when they are born and then we sacrifice the adults

on the altar of unjust wars to satisfy Satan who requires blood sacrifices.

 

We promote every immoral act and pass laws that severely punish anyone who speaks out

against the sexual depravity of homosexuality, lesbianism, etc. etc.

Supposedly Christian nations are the greatest purveyors of pornography,

with the United States, leading the list.

How can we ever think we will not be punished?

How can we ask the question ‘Why God?’

 

We worship anything but the Eternal God,

and loving our neighbour as ourselves is a rare thing.

 

If the Eternal God says not to do something,

we then seem to break our necks to see how quickly and how thoroughly we can do

what we were warned not to do.

 

We need to understand that the Eternal God is in charge of the whole of creation.

Under Him there is Satan, who was formerly Lucifer,

until he rebelled against the most High God.

 

We are told to do or not to do certain things by the Eternal so that we will be able

to enjoy living the life that He designed us to have in the first place, with every good blessing,

peace, health, happiness, sufficiency, in short the good life.

 

When we disobey we actually take up Satan’s charter, the result of which is a life of curses,

frustration, suffering, misery, and death.

Indeed the very opposite of the good life.

 

Satan is a very legalistic being.

He does not know the meaning of the words love and compassion.

His goal is to destroy the entire planet, and all that is in, and on it.

 

When we disobey, we actually give him a legal claim to our life and all that is ours.

 

Of course Satan can and does make false accusations against us,

but most times he is able to make genuine accurate legal accusations against us,

and all because we did not obey what the Eternal God told us in the first place.

 

Accusation is his 24 hour occupation.

 

Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,

Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God,

and the power of his Christ: for the accuser (Satan) of our brethren is cast down,

which accused them before our God day and night.

 

What Satan is able to do while he is still allowed access to the throne of God is this.

He can tell God, well God look you say that these are your people whom you love and look

at what they are doing.

 

They are not worshipping you.

They are worshipping me.

 

They ignore everything that you are telling them.

They are doing everything that I tell them.

 

You tell them not to kill.

I have them killing the unborn, the young, the old.

 

You tell them to flee fornication.

I have them not only committing adultery and fornication,

but I even have then promoting worldwide every sexual perversion as a normal occurrence,

and it is now acceptable.

 

I have deceived them into being my followers

while they call themselves followers of you, ‘Christians’.

 

You tell them not to steal.

I have them stealing from each other, at every level, individually, in business, in government

I even have them trading the ‘souls of men’.

Stealing and its associate lying is an everyday practice in all walks of life.

 

Legally they are mine, they are not yours.

Give them into my hand.

 

Christ then can reply, you are right but the fact is that

I have paid the price for them with My own blood,

and I am not giving them to you.

I will be patient with them a little longer.

 

The patience of Christ is sorely tried, and cannot go on forever.

The Eternal sends his messengers who are few and far between and they are rejected,

persecuted and even killed, mainly by those calling themselves ‘Christians’.

 

These Christians are comfortable in their complacency,

and do not want their world rocked in any way.

Genuine Christians are persecuted most by other Christians.

 

Mark 13:9  But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils;

and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten:

and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake,

for a testimony against them.

 

Today we can replace the phrase “in the synagogues” with “in the churches”.

 

In reality the entire world is going to be shaken and washed to the uttermost.

The current Tsunami is just the beginning of this.

 

The Eternal often uses Satan and his minions, spiritual and human, to carry out his decrees.

 

1 Corinthians 5:5  To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh,

that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

 

Although of course the Eternal God allows these disasters, it is more than likely that

this is the wrath of Satan rather than the wrath of God.

 

Revelation 12:12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.

Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!

for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath,

because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

 

I certainly am not yet convinced at all that the Indian Ocean Tsunami was not

triggered by human activity. In one sense it does not matter.

If I am correct, it would be the largest terrorist activity of all time,

with the greatest number of deaths in recorded history for a single event.

 

There are many questions, here is just one.

Earthquakes are normally followed by aftershocks.

Has anyone seen reports of aftershocks?

 

The fact is that we are living in the end times.

You do not have to believe what I am saying.

All you have to do is watch the events as they unfold before your very eyes.

 

The horror of the Tsunami did not reach into Iraq and put out the flames of war

that are fiercely burning 24 hours a day in that unfortunate country.

We have seen continuous coverage of stacks of dead bodies in the Far East.

Over 100,000 horrific Iraqi deaths have taken place amid the systematic and callous

destruction of this country, but you have seen no pictures of this in the media.

We are treated to sterilized reports, not the reality of war.

The controlled media are not even allowed to show the coffins of the dead U.S. soldiers. 

 

In both cases we can be certain that all the statistics have been ‘sexed up’.

It will be absolutely no surprise to me if a million people were not killed in the Tsunami.

Satan is a vicious killer and a liar, and he demands that his followers do likewise.

 

John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,

because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie,

he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 

We really do need to see these statements as reality in our daily experience

and not view them as intellectual concepts.

 

By a strange coincidence the overwhelming majority of the countless thousands

of people who were killed by the Tsunami were Muslims.

Is it really a coincidence, or was it planned that way?

 

Roosevelt stated: “Nothing happens
by accident.
If a thing happened it happened because it was planned that way

 

Was someone being taught a lesson?

You are winning the war in Iraq, but watch this.

This can mean that the world is in a much more precarious position than even we thought previously.

Pre-emptive strikes by any nation who feels threatened are very much on the cards.

It is a fact that several nations have been experimenting with utilizing weather and earthquakes

as weapons of war for a long time. It is easily found on the Internet.

 

We participate in Satan’s right to kill and destroy by following and obeying him.

 

In the UK many people of different races have been allowed to migrate here

and enjoy the blessings which have been lavished on this country,

often to the detriment of countries which have been plundered.

I can afford to say this without being branded racist,

as I am originally from the West Indies.

 

Many of these migrants have been allowed to bring their religions to this country and

they are encouraged to carry out their religious practices, under the guise of tolerance.

While the English churches fall into disrepair and are made into Bingo halls and all sorts

of things, grand majestic mosques spring up all over the place.

The Queen, Church leaders, ambassadors and other celebrities go to these places to visit,

or to pray for those who are suffering in the present Tsunami disaster and other functions.

 

What we need to consider is not tolerance but rather obedience to the Eternal,

which will result in blessings for all.

 

If we really do believe in the Eternal God then we should carry out His instructions,

and be a light to the world, saying this is the way walk in it.

 

Jeremiah said that the gentiles do not give up their gods, but the people of the

Eternal will give up the Eternal for things that do not profit.

 

Jeremiah 2:11  Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods?

but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

 

Christians who try to promote the Christian religion in non-Christian countries

can be imprisoned and even killed.

This has been the case since the time of the apostles.

We, however, welcome, and absorb any and every religion in our multi-cultural society.

Prince Charles has stated that he wants to be known as defender of the ‘Faiths’, not faith.

The U.S. government has actually not only regarded witchcraft as a valid religion,

it also gives financial handouts to the Wiccan religion.

It has also openly sent witches to the war in Iraq with the troops, so that they can look

after the needs of the ‘Wiccan’ member of the armed forces.

 

I am utterly saddened to see the inconceivable numbers of those who died, and who are

suffering pain, serious injury, starvation, mental trauma, and the loss of their loved ones,

and all their possessions, in the present disasters.

I am completely gutted that the Christian Church has failed.

The responsibility for what has started to take place,

and what will escalate has to be put fairly on their shoulders.

 

The Eternal created us to be spotless temples in which He can dwell.

The laws which He gave us are the blueprint of how to avoid the obstacles, and pitfalls.

The laws are the narrow way, which allows the Eternal to achieve His goal.

 

Matthew 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,

which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

Sadly in our rebellion we have become dirty stinking toilets in which the Eternal cannot dwell.

Even worse the Eternal has the painful, and not understood job of cleaning us up.

The situation has become so bad that the entire world is becoming a spiritual cesspit,

in spite of the fact that the blueprint, the narrow way was there all the time and accessible.

We did, and do not need to go to heaven or the ends of the universe to find it.

We can be assured that this applies to us today as much as it did the nation of Israel.

 

Deuteronomy 30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day,

it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

12  It is not in heaven,

that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven,

and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

13  Neither is it beyond the sea,

that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us,

and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

14  But the word is very nigh unto thee,

in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

15  See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

16  In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God,

to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments,

that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee

in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

 

Without the road map we have completely lost our way,

indeed gone astray, as the blind lead the blind

ever deeper into the quagmire of life destroying sinking sands, which has securely trapped us,

and from which we desperately need to be rescued,

Yet like moths attracted to the devouring flame, we hurtle into the fire.

 

We call other individuals, and nations evil, when in fact we easily surpass them in our iniquity.

 

We lie to our tiny children and suddenly expect them to tell the truth.  

We tell them about Santa Claus, the tooth fairy,

We tell them that Harry Potter is innocent fun,

We tell them that witchcraft is harmless with comedy in programs like ‘Bewitched’.

We now even believe these lies ourselves.

 

Deuteronomy 18:10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter

to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times,

or an enchanter, or a witch,

 

Isaiah 47:13  Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers,

the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up,

and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

 

Illicit sex and violence are the suggested solutions to our problems.

The end result is that the children in most schools are out of control.

The same is the case for the adults, as all types of ‘rage attacks’ are now common.

 

Genesis 13:13  But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

 

Jude 1:7 So also Sodom and Gomorrah—and the neighbouring towns in the same manner

—having been guilty of gross fornication and having gone astray in pursuit of unnatural vice,

are now before us as a specimen of the fire of the Ages in the punishment which they are undergoing.

 

Sodom was obliterated and unless we repent so will we.

 

What was designed to be a Temple of God is debased in every conceivable manner.

In parts of the body seen and unseen, we punch it with holes and put jewellery in it.  

This even includes in teeth and quite unbelievably but true, even in our eye balls.

Just the sight of people with rings in their lips, etc., makes me feel queasy

 

Tattoo shops spring up like weeds as young and old, tattoo, here there and everywhere,

but the Eternal says:

 

Leviticus 19:28  Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead,

nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

 

Being drunk is considered enjoyment.

We are being warned about things that we are doing.

 

Luke 21:34  "But take heed to yourselves,

lest your souls be weighed down with self-indulgence and drunkenness or the anxieties of this life,

and that day come upon you, suddenly, like a falling trap;

 

The situation does not improve but gets worse in spite of the vast number of graduates in psychology,

in the oversubscribed courses. Professing ourselves to be wise we have become fools.

 

Romans 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

 

The law, and hordes of enforcers are ready and waiting to punish and imprison any who dare to discipline

their children. This in no way promotes child abuse, which is utterly wrong.

 

Proverbs 19:18  Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.

 

Overall we have very briefly seen that where ever we look we wee that we,

collectively are in desperate trouble and in need of deliverance from our plight.

 

The more appropriate question seems to be God, why haven’t you just wiped us all out,

we have all truly messed up big time?

 

That is surely what we deserve. 

 

We are reaping what we have sown.

It is a law which cannot be broken.

 

Galatians 6:7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,

that shall he also reap.

 

You will see this with your own two eyes.

 

Hosea 8:7  For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind

 

It is not a matter of why does God allowed traumatic events to occur but rather,

 

What have we done?

 

We need to repent quickly before all hell breaks loose and consumes us as it most certainly will.

 

The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.

        He is the only way of escape.

             Praise the Lord.

          Come soon Lord Jesus.

                      Amen.

The End
