Satanic attack on the family: God is Love. (2/5)

What does it mean for a Christian to say "I have faith"? Even angels of darkness believe in God. So then why is faith so important for a follower of Christ? The Christian Faith is a trust in God's ways. It is a trust that God is sovereign over all things, and that even when things do not go our way, we trust that God is in control. The Christian faith is a trust that God loves each one of us unconditionally. It is a trust that "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life." [John 3:16] But how does God love the world?

When I said to God, "Look at this man and look at this woman, look at how angry they are with their spouses and their children, look at how badly they treat them, look at the verbal and physical abuse they put them through, look at the lust that drives and justifies their actions, look at their hatred and their self indulgence and self justification ... crush them Oh God and revenge their spouses, crush them almighty God and avenge their children . . . Justice demands it."

God answered me: "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believe in the name of the only Son of God." [John 3:17-18] But again, what does that mean?

God is saying telling me that he loves this man and this woman whom I am asking to be shunned by him. He is telling me that he is the God of mercy and his ways are not our ways. God is loud and clear "Georges, I love this man and I love this woman. I sent my only Son Jesus to save them and not to condemn them. Not only I love them, I love them like you love Alexander and Maya and Michaela even when they wrong each other. If you can imagine your love to your three kids, you would have begun to scratch the surface of my eternal love to this man and this woman that you bring before me."

I asked God, then why do they do what they do? He gave me an image of wolves hunting in the desert, roaming and searching for the weak sheep who have strayed from the flock and the shepherd. He showed me how the wolves lock their feigns into their necks carrying them to be devoured. Then he said: "This man and this woman are my sheep, and although they are farther from me than you are, I love them just the same. Satan's jaws are locked around their necks."

"Do they have hope?" I asked. "I am Jesus their only hope" he answered. Then he added: "The light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God." [John 3: 19-21] That is they have hope only in their capacity to trust in the light, to trust God and seek his truth. That capacity is given when we pray for them. If we judge them, then our salt has lost its taste, we are called to love them and pray for them with love, so that their darkness may turn into the light of Jesus.
