  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Do you try to figure out Jesus’ purport amid all circumstances?

    Do you try to figure out Jesus’ purport amid all circumstances?

    • Pro 16:4 -> “The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.“.

    The Eternal created everything, even the wicked to cause trouble and receiving trouble. They are born in the perdition, walk in the perdition and go to the perdition:

    Job 21:30 -> “That the wicked is reserved for the day of calamity? They are led forth to the day of wrath.”.
    • Rom 9:22 -> “What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,”.
    • 1Pe 2:8 -> “and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.”.
    • 2Pe 2:3 -> “And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”.
    • 2Pe 2:9 -> “then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,”.

    I know that this can be hard. After all, wouldn’t it be better if the Eternal only created those who are good?

    However, He doesn’t make only what is delightful to Him. Even those who are bitterness of spirit to Him, He tolerate for His glory:

    • Rom 9:23 -> “and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy which He had before prepared to glory;”.

    After all:

    • Rom 11:36 -> “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”.
    • Isa 43:7 -> “everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”.
    • Isa 43:21 -> “the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise.”.

    Many times, we repine about the apparent success of the wicked. Nevertheless, for those who are in Christ, it’s better to die before the evil comes (Ps 116:15):

    • Isa 57:1 -> “The righteous one perishes, and no one lays it to heart, and merciful men are taken away; no one cares that the righteous is taken away from the face of evil.”.

    So, if the evil seems to prevail, praise the Creator in virtue of:

    • Rev 4:11 -> ““Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.””.

    Doing this, you will be more than conqueror (Rom 8:37) through His superabundant grace acting in you (and through you), which is much greater than all the sin that can exist in the world.

    So, have a victorious day focusing on all the treasures of heaven available for you (1Cor 2:9; Eph 2:3; 2Pe 1:3; Phil 4:19).
