Why Does God Keep Silent?

It may interest you to know that God may not answer your prayers or send help to you,because you are a sinner but what also amazes me is that he does almost the same to believers he does as he pleases the bomb blast in London some months ago is still fresh in our memories where people woke up having great expectations only to be short lived by a terrorist @ least God was there why did it happen?

The recent plane crash in Nigeria is another case study where God should have proved himself but 117 people died just like that @ least God helped so many people in the Bible why not now may be God is coming soon or maybe he allows it to happen to teach people lessons but I still ask why does God keep silent? especially in times like these when we need him most a friend told me nothing happens without his approval but what do you really think.

A pastor should please say something in the forum to encourage we younger ones.

God does not keep silent. His holy spirit is the guide, the speaker, the advicer etc. Its only if you open your heart to Jesus that God's holy spirit will live in you and speak to you (Through people, through dreams, directly to you, through books etc.) I think the subject should be why God does not talk directly to the world. The answer for that is that life is a test, a test to see if we are worthy enough to be in heaven with the Body in Heaven, to see if we can overcome temptations. Originally i don't think God intended the world to be like this but because he is mighty God he has the power to turn the devils nasty work into Good work. The talk God has with the world is the Bible. If you read the Bible you will see Gods word. Its amazing,

Rhoda,

You also fast from food a nd drink as that also tends to take our attention form God.

Fasting dosnt affectm God...it affects us. We fast so as to be spritually alert to hear God clearly.

When this happens, there is an unusall release of His grace and power.

Fasting is also an art of worship and sacrifice to GOD.

You ask, "Why would an all-loving, all-knowing God allow people to experience pain and suffering?" Pain is a problem because our finite, human minds selfishly believe that pain-free lives would prove that God loves us.

I am not arguing that pain is not painful. Pain hurts. I am only trying to show that the old Christian doctrine that being made perfect through suffering is not incredible. To prove it palatable is beyond my design. We are reminded that we are not the center of the universe and that suffering is God's will in preparing the believer for heaven and for the full weight of glory that awaits him there. Many of us naively wish that God had designed a "less glorious and less arduous destiny".

We all came into this world through birth and the only way out of the world is by death and it can come in any way or form we cant do nothing about it. Thats why we all need to be prepared at all time just incase the bell rings.

We think we can do God's job or tell him how to do it, but we don't remember how small we are in the scheme of creation to influence the will of God.

I will also like to point out that God is not silent, God speak all the time and only those who shut up and listen hears him and these are the people who make better decisions in life......

Hello my elect brothers and Sisters,

By now I can see that most of you are feeling something is wrong with Nigeria. Yes! It is true. I am not a pastor(I'll never be) but I can tell you one or two thing about Nigeria and the present problem we are facing.

Justice is about to come to the son of man. Our Lord Jesus is preparing to perfect the whole world.

Nigeria is located where sin and injustice first started that is the reason it is very difficult for us to proper in the land of our heritage. It was our ancestors that started the universe. Nigeria most especially the southerners formed the long described nation Israel in the Bible of the christian and koran of the muslim.

Lamurudu/Nimrod/Namrud was one of those who challenged the God of heaven. Abraham/Avram was our own ancestor and the one who was wise enough to follow the footsteps of The Almighty God. His descendant(original) live in the southern part of Nigeria today. The tribe and son of Nimrod/Namrud/Lamurudu has been wiped out by our father Abraham. So we can not be descedant of dead king. I dont know the real name of Abraham may be he was Oduduwa, nobody knows

They have decieved us and changed the story of our ancestor. It was Almighty God and the Holy One of Our ancestor that allowed our history to be robbed and plundered. Most people in the world are claiming the source of civilization but I want you from today to stop joining the fools. Our Lord Yashua/Yeshua/Jesus or what His name was then warned us that we should not associate with the world. The world is the foolishness and fables of mankind not the way people dress.

Mother Israel is about to be united!

Devil is at war with us now because he thought we will never find out the truth about our origin. Some of us from black nation that are wise have found it.

The stories in the bible are the stories of our ancestors from Abraham,Issac,Jacob,Moshe,Daniel to the Mesiah, it was the stories that was robbed and plunder from us.

The country that is calling themselves Israel are impostors. It was them that first invaded us ever before the british invasion. They took our story, killed the valiant of our ancestors and claimed tha we originated from them. The chinnese too came and stole our art of war, Martial Art and turned it to their own. What you see in Jet Li movies that are film trick are the way our ancestors fought in war. One man was equal to 1000. They could fly and run faster than car(Naphtal son of Abraham) They could scream and destroy a whole city(Judah son of Abraham) They could resit 200 men(Judah son of Abraham).

We found it, the history of our ancestors and the whole planet. The story can not be told now. Until its appointed time.

This is a time for us to unite so that The Lord can restore our inheritance. Most especially the Yorubas,Ibos,Benins and all the state at the southern part of Nigeria. The Biafra should keep silent, the odua should drop their juju practice.

God prophesies in Isaiah 44 that the people of Israel will still be worshiping God of wood till the time of their of their reformation because they are unwise and foolish. The present Israel does not have any history of wooden idol worshiping. They can add it to their culture so that they fool wise people of our land. This is the time to pray for God protection in where ever you go because devil is waging war against us.(oju boro ko la fi ng gbomo lowo ekuro)

When you read in the bible about The elect nation, The choosen generation, The royal priesthood, it is not refering to the whole born again as christian assert but the nation Israel the black race that has the leniage of Abraham in their blodd.

The time of our affliction will soon over. Nigeria nation will soon become the nation called after God. Allah will be wiped out and his demons, all idol worshiping will cease and The name of God/Eloim/El-Shadai/Eledumare and His only Son Yashua/Yeshua/Jesus will be procalimed and The Holy Spirit will fill our heart with wisdom with the Spirit of God poured on us as prophesied in the oracle according to Joel. Cure will be found for incurable disease(Jer 30:12) fighting our nation and our neighbors. There will be no more hunger. Nigeria will be transforned become more beautiful than the first Eden located formerly on our soil

All roads will lead to Nigeria[i][/i]

Be prepared. Christians rededicate your life to Jesus, muslims stop following the religion our fathers did not know and become born again, traditional worshipers look toward Abraham our Father and Sarah that beget us and stope been foolish following after abomination which Eledumare despice. Obey the laws of God and do His will withe ease given by HIS Son Jesus.

I live the rest to you.

Let me get between this disagreement with this:

Joh 6:63

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Prayer is great!!!  but the flesh profits nothing and fasting in the flesh will profit nothing.

Starving your flesh of food and drink will profit nothing.

God's fast is quit talking and do some listening!!!

Fast (give up) talking and be silent and listen for His Words to you

He is a gracious God and will not interrupt your many words...sit down and hear....

Lu 10:38-42

Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

I can't say this enough:

Joh 4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

God helps you, only if you are ready to help yourself. Most Nigerians only wish for better things. Very few are willing to work towards the better things. That's why our nation is how it is today.

God only answers prayers HE knows will benefit us. If one keeps praying and fasting, if God sees the need to answer your prayers, he will.

You're welcome, Goodguy.

@Adesoji, Thou Shalt Not Judge, was exactly my point. We can not judge a babalawo's suitability or right to enter paradise. Babalawo is not a religion -- it's simply a professional career. There are babalawos who are Christian; also, there are babalawos who are Muslim. Babalawos and oniseguns are our own doctors and pharmacists in Yorubaland. They are not evil! People go to the orthodox doctors for abortion, plastic surgeries, liposuction, facial and other reconstructive surgeries, genital corrective surgeries, transgender surgeries ( I call these playing God), and other ungodly reasons like they go to babalawos for anything. Have we ever called the orthodox doctors evil? (My uncle is a thoracic surgeon, and he's not evil, so isn't any babalawos out there). Those of you who are Yoruba should not forget that before our forefathers were kicked out of the Arabian peninsular they were idol worshippers! Lamurudu (Nimrod) was the chief priest of the idolaters as at the time of the Exodus out of Arabia; he later gave birth to Oduduwa, who was the founder of the Yoruba.

I really don't know why we have to question God's ways of doing things. He chooses to save anybody, anyhow it pleases HIM. And talking of the bellview plane crash, I don't think anyone in here should be talking of someone being a better Christian than the other. As I always said and as I will continue to say, GOD DOES THINGS HIS OWN WAY FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANKIND. Even JESUS CHRIST, a man who never knew sin, had to die in a very terrible way, alongsides with armed robbers; for our own sake. WHO ARE WE TO QUESTION GOD??

agreeably there r better christians than me who died on the plane cos ma aunt did. 4 ur info i ain't religiously biased. can't compare a babalawo to a christian. Stand ma ground. certainly no one can be forced into religion but remember whatever u reap , u'll sow.

Why should God protect persons that fail to acknowledge his existence or even presence

@prettyH, there were better Christians than you in that doomed aircraft.

See how can u compare a babalawo? He is no better than the devil. For one to be considered a real christian because i am, u must be a follower of Christ so please no comparison

I repeat, a babalawo that is not as religiously biased as yourself can enter paradise before you. And that is if you will enter paradise at all!

But till all Nigerians accept Jesus as Lord and saviour before alot of things will start falling into place.

You're wrong!!!!!! Na lie, you can not force anybody into your religion!

God is silent because he cannot involve Himself in everything that happens. Life's not clockwork, you know.

And not all christians will say

If God wanted people to die anyway He chose, what was the purpose of creation? I mean do you think He thinks its fun? We all have our lives, and God has given us free will to do as we please!

i'd like to point out that bellview has suffered only one plane crash is 15 years...

plane crashes happen all the time, all over the world due to misfortune, or a slight miscalculation, not because of 'how nigeria is'....

other than that i agree with wesleyana's first comments/observations...

Going to churches and mosques doesn't make you sinless. A babalawo or an animist might not be as sinful as either a christian or Muslim.

The Bellview plane mishap was due to poor maintenance. So if it was obvious that the airline did not adequately maintain its aircraft, still, God ought to stop the accident from happening? If a car doesn't have a (good) brake and it ends up in a ditch, killing the occupants [whether they all go to church/mosque or not], is the good God (or the driver/owner that didn't care to repair his car) to blame? Don't blame God -- blame the poor maintenance.

About the Britain's station bombings: the youngsters were unhappy because the British Blair has become a lackey of the American Bush -- it was all geopolitical in nature! Both governments' illegal presence in Iraq didn't help the matter either! God had nothing to do with it.

Remember that God has given each and every one of us a FREE WILL! That's why we can decide if something is good or bad.

christians will say :

the bad things happened because he wants to punish sinners (innocent people) or punish London or because "the next hitler" was on the plane and he didn't want him ot survive.

if people had survived on the plane, christians will say:

it's because God is a merciful God and he didnt want to kill people or want anyone to die.
