God is a God of love. Love is who He is. He will never hurt us, or harm us. God gave us gifts and abilities but we have to ask and believe in order to receive. Jesus didn't die just so you could be in heaven, but He died so you can have an abundance of life here on earth, and also live forever in heaven, with Him.
God loved us so much that He died for us, and it cost Him EVERYTHING. He could've killed us off, or just leave us to fend for ourselves and start a whole new world with people who He could make love Him, with just a snap of His finger. But instead He chose to redeem us, and give us a free will to choose to believe or to not believe in Him. He loves us that much! Jesus gave up Heaven, His home, power, comfort, and His kingdom to come to earth in a form of a human to die a painful death for us. Following God does not mean pain, suffering and boring lives, with no happiness. To believe and follow God is to have joy, hope, love, good health, prosperity and every good thing.
God does not ever bring anything bad upon the ones He loves. We have to know, though, who we are in Christ, how much He loves us, and receive what He has given to us, and apply it to our daily lives.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
When we believe in Jesus, and become followers of Christ Jesus, our names are written in the book of life! Meaning we get to go to heaven and be with God. God also gives us authority, and power, from Him, to fight against the devil and evil forces. The devil has more power than us, but God is a lot more powerful then satan. And as children of God, He gives us the victory over them.
The world, and every person on earth has sin, because of Adam’s sin, because Adam is the father of all human beings on earth, and his sin passes down to us, kind of like DNA passes down from parent to children. When Jesus died he paid for all the sins of the world, and if we believe in Jesus, then we get the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Sin gives the devil power over us, but by believing on what Jesus did for us on the cross, We can use the authority God gives to us, to defeat and trample on the devil.
The bible might be 2000 years old but the bible is still true today. Like The sun is thousands of years old but it is still hot, just because its old does not mean it isn't hot or it isn't still applicable to our daily lives, and the air is thousands of years old but we still have air, and we still need air
Some people get hurt and have lots of bad things in their lives because they don't follow God's will, or they don't believe in what God has already given to them. God has given YOU authority over satan, USE IT!
Last note to remember: if God tells you to go somewhere or do something but you do not follow His will, you are disobeying Him, and you are walking out of His protection, and that will let the devil attack you. God will never hurt you. But if you walk away from God, then that gives the devil the right to attack you.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it moreabundantly.”
