    Patience. :)

    Romans 9:22
    What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:


    Isaiah 13:9
    Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

    Malachi 4:3
    And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

    Remember the demons called legion? They asked Jesus if he had come to torment them before their time.

    Psalms 37 says that the wicked plitteth against the just, an knashest upon them with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh ay him, for he seeth that his day is coming.

    So, yes... be patient!

    For now we are all under Gods grace. He is giving man time to repent and turn to Him BUT there is coming a day when all will be judged and all evil will be destroyed. That is an awesome loving God !

    Hora,

    This is why:'

    God has a plan and all of God's people have not come into the kingdom yet. Until they are all in, the Gospel will be proclaimed among the evil of all nations. Remember who caused all this evil to happen. Read Genesis 2.

    Even Jesus in his humanity while on earth did not know the time of his second coming:

    Keep faith. God will deal with it all in His time. His plan is unfolding everyday. He works for His glory! Seek His kingdom and give Him praise even in the worst of times and circumstances. He is holy and His will is perfect!

    because there is no such thing as good or evil there not black and white but shades of gray. if you actually read your book from a open perspective you would paint god as the true villain and Lucifer as the good samaertian who rebelled against a tyrant but you don't there for it is not

    Perhaps God doesn't destroy all the wicked, because if He did there would be no man left.
    The biggest trouble with men is that there are some who actually believe that they are good.

    16. Now behold, one came and said to Him, "Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?''
    17. So He said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.'' Matthew 19:16-17

    10. As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; 11. there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. 12. They have all gone out of the way; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.'' Romans 3:10-12

    9. "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it?
    10. I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:9-10

    6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
    7. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not his mouth.
    8. He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken. Isaiah 53:6-8

    14. "What is man, that he could be pure? And he who is born of a woman, that he could be righteous?
    15. If God puts no trust in His saints, and the heavens are not pure in His sight,
    16. how much less man, who is abominable and filthy, Who drinks iniquity like water! Job 15:14-16

    All these verses (and they don't stand alone) are not speaking of someone else, they speak about us, all of us.
    If you haven't accepted that then you don't know Christ.
    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8

    God knew what our condition would be when He created us with the ability to make choices, but He never intended to leave us to ourselves.
    And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8

    16. "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. 17. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18. "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19. "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:16-19

    For the sake of the visiting child of the devil:
    7. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
    8. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
    9. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
    10. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:7-10
    All things considered, If God actually were a tyrant, I'd rather be loved and live eternally than be hated and go on dying forever. However, if God were really a tyrant the omnipotent omniscient creator of all things would never have allowed you the choice to reject Him and choose eternal destruction and separation from all that is good.
    There is only one book that tells the truth.
    44. "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45. "But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. John 8:44-45
    If you're believing someone else, you've been conned.

    He does--in the next life

    there is something in the Bible abot how God lets evil people have what they want.. just whatever they want, pretty much. b/c they will not have anything but misery and ignominy in the next life..

    makes sense..

    since eternity is. eternal
