Why doesnt jesus or god ,offer any protection against evil..in fact believing attracts it?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  The Power to Forgive? (10/01/2014)—(5.)  Anyone and everyone may express forgiveness toward others; however, like the work of divine healing, the work of divine forgiveness is not for those outside of Christ.  The work of forgiveness as an aspect of judgment is not complete without atonement.  Only those divinely appointed may forgive in the name of Jesus, and as incarnations (i.e., appearance in flesh) of the Most High.  Divine forgiveness is able to establish the person forgiven in a newness of life, renew trust, and refresh shared relationships among believers, because divine being and sacred matter from the makeup of GOD will be deposited and transferred.  Apostles, prophets and those in roles as anointed agents and consecrated spokespersons of GOD are permitted by GOD and Jesus Christ to proclaim and speak official decisions, divine judgments, and sacred messages.  In general, those serving as ordained clergy also acknowledge differences among the gifts granted from GOD, and hierarchy for duty and privilege as well as the need for special experience, sacred knowledge and preparation to correctly carry out and complete many of the peculiar assignments believers are given as priests and kings.  A believer does not himself (or herself) perform the sacred operations that are required so much as they monitor and witness to the active presence of GOD.  Thus, the Holy Spirit serving as the agent of Jesus is to be credited with accomplishing the many duties believers are challenged to embrace such as baptism, enduring tests and trials, forgiveness, the Lord’s Supper, exorcism, intercession, praise, and prayer.  Consider again Leviticus 5:  14-19, Numbers 15:  22-31, 1st Kings 8:  38-40, Psalms 86:  4-6, Matthew 6:  14-15, Matthew 12:  30-32, Luke 7:  36-50, John 20:  22-23 and 1st Corinthians 12:  27-31, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel?  And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king:  but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.  And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.  Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host:  and they came by night, and compassed the city about.  And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?  And he answered, Fear not:  for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.  And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw:  and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.  (2nd Kings 6:  11-17, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Lot and the Angels (05/04/2014); Expulsion from Eden (05/05/2014); Needing Guns To Serve? (03/19/2014); A Culture of Judgment? (03/20/2014); What Salvation Is (01/25/2014); Bible Justice? (01/26/2014); A Godly Take on Guns (01/18/2013); It Is Finished (01/19/2013)

 

“badwolf”, here are a few points to consider that add strength to developing Christian believers:

(1.)  There are multiple provisions from GOD for the spiritual nourishment and protection of believers.  Intimate relationship with GOD is called a high tower, a refuge, and is spoken of as the “armour of light” and the “whole armor of GOD.”  Believers are to exist in the same physical sphere as unbelievers, however, their awareness and self-will directed through the Spirit of GOD are transformed to face difficulties, overcome problems, and resist sin.

(2.)  Through baptism (death of ones inborn spirit, rebirth having sacred content from the makeup of divinity) believer’s receive a fresh endowment of the same material GOD bestowed when creating Adam.  Once born again, there must be continual growth and learning.  Believers are to mature, become perfected (i.e., immortal and incorruptible), and experience eternal life.  Through the imparted spirit (we say, breath, word), men are “made in the image of GOD.”

(3.)  Believers are not to be beggars, or those who wait on GOD to pour out good things while they themselves do nothing (we say, are passive).  Believers are to demonstrate creativity, energy, industry, intelligence, and zeal cooperating with the efforts of others who are also in fellowship with GOD through Jesus Christ.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  In the same way both believers and unbelievers will get wet when it rains as a matter of the mechanics for how their physical environment must work, both believers and unbelievers are subject to automobile accidents, heat strokes, heart failure, flu, and death.  The difference is not their mortality; the difference is their hope, praise, prayer, proclamation, promise, prophecy, and sanctification.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
