The Answers Are Coming
by David J. Stewart | January 2020
1st Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”The Bible says we can only understand partly right now, but someday when we see Jesus as He is, at the Rapture (i.e., the Day of Christ), only then will we finally understand all things, as much as we are known by God. Wow! The answers are coming my friend. But for now, we can only know in part. That is why we read in 2nd Corinthians 5:7, “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:).”
That is also why the Lord commands us to pray about everything, knowing that He CAN see the big picture. Philippians 4:6-7, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Since I know that God lives in ETERNITY, but I am stuck in TIME, I choose to trust Him, for He sees tomorrow. For every answer in life there are two more questions. There is very little that I understand in the grand scope of the universe.
The answers are coming! The Scripture teaches that a man cannot understand his own way, because God created us in His image. Proverb 20:24, “Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?” Since man is created in God's own image, we must SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES to understand God. The world is a mess, stumbling in darkness, “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2nd Timothy 3:7). 1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” Thank God for the inspired King James Bible!!!
One day life will all make sense. 1st Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” The Holy Bible acknowledges that even the most knowledgeable of believers today, at best, only “KNOW IN PART.” No one understands all the Bible, and ever has! Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) made this great statement...
“Can't you see what the Devil is seeking to do to our people today? Modernists and infidels have taken over the chore of rewriting the Bible, and say—he goes ahead to say that—'We have written a book that everybody can understand.' Dear friend, that's the most stupid statement a man could ever make! Nobody has ever understood all of God or all of God's Word!” [emphasis added] —Brother Lester Roloff, a wonderful quote from the MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
Amen and amen! NO ONE has ever written a book that “EVERYBODY” can understand! Even the apostle Peter had difficulty understanding the Word of God. 2nd Peter 3:16-17, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.” Notice that “THEY THAT ARE UNLEARNED” (e.g., Ray Comfort, John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Stephen Davey, Paris Reidhead, Paul Washer and countless others) “WREST” (twist) the Scriptures to “THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION.” These unlearned men are destroying many people's lives. Sadly, and tragically, tens of thousands of churches are falling hook, line and sinker for the Devil's bait. Ray Comfort's ministry raked in $3,571,713 in the year 2017 from unwitting people who trust his corrupt theology. That is disgusting!
Since 2002 when I started my online ministry I've been blessed to receive 110,407,505 web visitors, and I've made ZERO dollars! I do what I do for the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and for the sake of the GOSPEL, and for the sake of the THE TRUTH, and for the sake of OTHERS! To God alone be all the credit, praise and glory! The answers are coming! I don't understand now, but I will. I am commanded to pray about “EVERY THING” in Philippians 4:6-7, even though I cannot understand what is going on, and claim “THE PEACE WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING.” The reason why we can do that is because God DOES understand, and He is ultimately in control of our lives and the universe. It is a matter of faith.
Someone has cleverly said that “B.I.B.L.E.” is an acronym for “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” I like that. The Lord gave us what we needed to know. For every answered question in the Bible, there are two more unquestioned answers. We can only understand to the extent that a human can grasp eternal truths. The apostle Paul was caught up into Heaven and saw things which he was not allowed to utter on earth. That is intriguing to me. I wonder what Paul saw? 2nd Corinthians 12:4, “How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” I can't wait to find out what Paul heard and saw in Paradise.
One day we will understand all things, but for now we can only see in part. So don't try to figure it all out, you can't. No one can. I am in the habit of telling people, when asked a Bible question, simply that: “I DON'T KNOW!” There is no shame in not knowing the answer to every question. For example: Since all babies go to Heaven (Titus 2:11), but most adults go to Hell (Matthew 7:13-14), then isn't abortion a wonderful thing? We know that killing is the sin of murder (Exodus 20:13). I cannot explain that scenario. If most of the aborted babies would have gone to Hell, had they been spared to live, but are now in Heaven eternally instead; then it is truly the BEST THING that ever could have happened to them, and an incredible act of mercy by God. Go figure! I cannot wrap my brain around these truths, but I trust my God, who knows all. We still must fight to stop abortion, because God commands men to do righteousness!
The answers are coming friends! One day we will understand why God seemed to ignore us when we prayed. We will understand why He allowed so much evil and suffering to go on in this world, for so long. God could stop all wars forever, and He someday will, but why does He wait? 2nd Peter 3:9b says God is waiting “that all should come to repentance.” All men won't come to repentance, but our loving and merciful heavenly God is earnestly waiting for all men to repent (change their mind) to believe the Gospel (Good News of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen). “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1st Corinthians 13:12). The answers to all our questions are coming when we see Jesus.
