There was once a moment when he asked me:
“Why am I experiencing all these failures and disappointments?”
“If there is a God, then He should not allow me to suffer but how come He won’t listen to my prayers?”
And my answer was simple:
“There is a God, He listens to you and He answers. BUT you just don’t hear it because you don’t believe.”
And I continued:
“Didn’t you know that this world that we live in now is the devil’s domain?
Didn’t you know that most of the problems that we encounter are all fueled by the dark forces and the evil nature that reside in this world?
Didn’t you know that this world is condemned, it is temporary and this was cursed because of our fallen nature, that moment when Adam and Eve (our ancestors) were banished from the garden of Eden because of sin?
Didn’t you know too that God has made peace with us by sending His Son as the ultimate sacrifice so we can choose to have life?
Didn’t you know that that life is not the life lived in this world, but lived in a world where everything is pleasing, good and perfect and everything evil, the ones that we are experiencing now, will forever be eradicated including death?
Didn’t you know that this other world is called heaven, a place of eternity and eternal salvation in contrast to hell which is eternal condemnation?
Didn’t you know that what God only wanted for us is to accept His gift to us which is eternal salvation through His Son Jesus Christ?
Didn’t you know that this salvation means God wants to save us from the dark forces of evil in this world by giving us a chance to claim victory towards life in eternity?
Didn’t you know that God wanted to prove to you that He is more powerful than anything in this world and that He is the only one who can save you from the perils of this world just by simply surrendering to the Way towards salvation, surrendering to the Truth that death has no power over the Son of God, and surrendering to the Life that is eternal and infinite – Jesus Christ?
Didn’t you know that it only takes three ways to believe in God, our ticket towards heaven – to repent, to surrender and to proclaim you need a Savior?”
And so I continued:
“If you don’t really know all these things, then I humbly dare you to ask God to come into your life, reveal Himself to you and prove that He is indeed God of all.”
This was how I ended the battle for I believe God will finish it for me. All I have to do is believe then proclaim – this is my battle cry.
