Decrees Punishment

(This article also available upon request in tract form as well as Judgment Booklet #9)

YAHWEH, THE LORD GOD, SPOKE through the prophet Isaiah, stating, "I make peace, and create evil" (45:7). This "evil" which He creates is not moral but physical, like disasters, and so on. Of course we know that He uses whatever means He desires when punishment is at hand. He uses wars caused by men, and He uses physical disasters: both are at His total command.

Yahweh IS the Chief Factor in everything that happens, whether it be favorable or unfavorable, good or evil, light or darkness, prosperity or adversity. EVERYTHING is under His control, in one form or another, for He is over ALL His creatures--He is the Sovereign over all creation. He uses everything as He wills. He uses men (in their own choices) and He uses various means (which may be affected by men's own choices) to execute His blessings or cursings.

Men and nations are pondering the great tsunami that occurred in December 2004. They ought to! It was frightening. It is being debated by some that this disaster might have been manmade rather than purely "natural." Still it matters not what men think, for God is in charge and He uses whatever means that He wants to use in order to accomplish His intended purposes. That is, if He chooses to use men's choices to execute judgments, He may; and if He initiates a "natural" disaster, He may. "While we will never know if the tsunami was natural," said the January 6, 2005 Jerusalem Post, which quoted an Egyptian Weekly Magazine, Ah-Osboá, "India has received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the U.S. and Israel, both of which showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to EXTERMINATE HUMANKIND!" (UN WATCH, Nov.-Dec. 2004 and Jan.-Feb. 2005, pp. 1-2, Joan Veon; emphasis added).

Could that great "EVIL" have been caused by man? Could it have been caused by Yahweh? How about this: BOTH COULD BE TRUE! Remember, even if men were involved, Yahweh was still the one who allowed it. And it is not up to me to tell you every reason why He allowed it, other than the fact that God has told us that He is bringing forth His severe judgments upon this sin-ridden earth.

Consider the following Bible verses: "But our God is in the heavens: He does whatever He pleases" (Psalm 115:3). "Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, IN THE SEAS and IN ALL DEEPS" (Psalms 135:6). Whether He does something Himself or uses the choices of men to accomplish a needed purpose, His will is done.

It is a fact that since 1992, leading geological centers in Britain, Turkey and other nations have warned others to not hold nuclear experiments in the region of the Indian Ocean known as the "Fire Belt." According to experts, this belt was the location of "the epicenter of the earthquake." Al-Osboá also repeated that Arab and specifically Islamic states have asked the U.S., Israel, and India to stop their nuclear activities in that region. Could the catastrophic event have been a deliberate act of terrorism against the affected regions? Thousands of Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists died. How about this--Could God have chosen to use the U.S., Israel, India, and others as His chastising rod against the Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists? We must not forget all the HORRIBLE TERROR that these three groups have been executing against the Christian populations in that part of the world (and elsewhere). All three groups have shown their true violent natures by harassing, torturing, maiming, and murdering thousands of non-violent Christians. It is not surprising that God sent destruction. Whether it was manmade or "natural," God only knows, but we know that God's judgments are being released upon the earth in this hour.

Proverbs 20:24 tells us that "Man's steps are ordained by the LORD; how then can man understand his way?" Men make choices, but they don't know everything. God uses men when He wants to, how He wants to, and why He wants to. When the LORD GOD wants to "prove" His sovereignty over man or creation with force, He will. God only allows men to spread sin for so long.

Consider: "I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I AM He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let [i.e., hinder, reverse] it?" (Isaiah 43:12-13). Also consider this: "Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?" (Lamentations 3:37-38).

You see, even if man thinks he is doing what he is doing without any influence or allowance, it doesn't change the truth that God intervenes for good and allows things to transpire. If God decrees it, He will use a man or nature to perform His will. God has complete freedom to intervene or allow (i.e., He does not need our advice!). He may rightly perform what He decrees, for He rules over His creation. Man's will cannot thwart or destroy God's ultimate purposes, although a man can choose against God's individual desires for him.

The "Reform of the UN" shall take place in September of 2005 at its General Assembly Meeting. It will cover the main topic of "A More Secure World: Our Shared Responsibility." Joan Veon, who attends these meetings, says that a better title would be "How To Put the World into a Global Military Police State," for that is what "Collective Security" is all about. The U.N. agenda is the plan of men; and though God does not morally approve of men's evil schemes, God may still use something like the U.N. agenda to enact judgments upon those who deserve them.

After the tsunami disaster, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan stated that the disaster "was so huge that no one agency or one country can deal with it alone." He is right...if we are talking in terms of $$$ help. But was it all just another scare tactic in the plan to integrate nations under the "Collective Security" idea? No doubt the citizens of nations will lose MORE freedoms in order to make our world more "SECURE." Yet behind all this, even if it were true that men used nuclear weapons to cause the disaster, we find God's ever-present will at work. The LORD has, and can, and will use men's good or wicked hearts to perform His will, even though He does not approve of men's sinful choices.

Consider: "The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples [whenever He wants!]. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation" (Psalm 33:10-11). You see, God can use the U.N. or the "Collective Security" to either bring freedom or slavery, blessing or cursing. And we cannot hold on to the false idea that man has no "free will" to exercise. Although, the LORD can, when He deems necessary, keep men from sinning by His mercy or let men cause HELL upon the earth for judgment! (See Genesis 20:6, for example).

Some out there believe that the great earthquake could have been caused by a series of submarine explosions, spaced and timed in such a way to target the focal point to trigger the force of the huge wave. They claim the main wave was a much bigger one than any natural (unaided) geological process could have obtained. This planned event, they claim, was perfect for those who are seeking the new international Disaster Prevention Treaty. As it stands right now, the tsunami is considered a key circumstance for the integration of the nations, as evidenced by all the money aid. And so-called Christians are involved at different levels. Christians, are we guilty of aiding murderers?

It is sheer foolishness to say that God does not use natural elements and man and manmade means to execute His judgments. He does! He can bring forth, say, a famine, in which He, by natural means, withholds the rains. Or He can bring forth a famine by too much rain, which would destroy crops all ready for harvest. Or He can cause man to destroy or take crops ready for harvest, making the planters to go without food. The Old Testament accounts are full of such acts.

The LORD says in Isaiah 10, "Woe to Assyria, the ROD of My anger, and the STAFF in whose hand is My indignation. I will send him against an ungodly nation, and against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, to seize the spoil, to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. Yet he does not mean so, nor does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy, and cut off not a few nations" (vv. 5-7). The Living Bible puts it this way: "Assyria is the whip of My anger; his military strength is My weapon upon this godless nation, doomed and damned; he will enslave them and plunder them and trample them like dirt beneath his feet. But the king of Assyria will not know that it is I who sent him. He will merely think he is attacking My people as part of his plan to conquer the world." God used a godless nation, the cruel Assyrians, as HIS weapon to destroy other nations, even His very own Israel. That is not all. Verse 12 tells us, "I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the pomp of his haughtiness." God raises up cruel nations to execute His wrath, but will turn and punish those cruel nations at the proper time. God is just.

In the Scriptures I quoted above, let it be emphasized that God uses evil men to bring forth His judgments, BUT God is not the author of sin. He is not the instigator of moral evil. Moral evils spring from within the hearts of men. God simply uses what already exists. You see, when Israel of old was living right in God's sight, He used them for His good pleasure. However, when the people turned unto other gods, the LORD used the pagan gods, that is, of pagan nations, to chastise His backslidden people. Now God did not desire that His people would turn away from Him, and He did not desire that the pagans would be living against their own inherent consciences. Yet God needed to justly punish Israel for backsliding, and He simply used the pagans as they were--in the degraded state that they had personally chosen--to accomplish that end.

Be it known, the LORD allows evil men and nations to do their own wills, to a certain extent; but He can, when needed, restrain them from completely fulfilling their evil intents. I am speaking about God's "miracle power." There are times, most of the time, that men and nations do what is not ordained by God. But not without consequence! All the day long, the Lord is wroth with the nations. Of course He is loving, patient, longsuffering, and more; but He will punish men and nations, putting a stop to their own sinful intentions, when He deems it necessary, using whomever or whatever He desires.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter how things happen. For a judgment is a judgment nonetheless, when Yahweh decrees punishment.


"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. ...For the wages of sin is death" (Galatians 6:7; Romans 6:23). Men have brought destruction and death upon themselves through their own sins. No one may say that certain men are "innocent." "For all have sinned" (Romans 3:23). And God does not--GOD CANNOT--overlook sin in any form. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL ungodliness and unrighteousness of men" (Romans 1:18). Muslims deny the deity of Jesus Christ. "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist" (I John 4:3). Buddhists and Hindus "changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator" (Romans 1:25). They are idol worshippers, who "changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things" (v. 23). Because these men have chosen sin and have persisted in choosing sin, "God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts" (v. 24).

Many devotees of all three groups--Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists--are deeply engaged in a great number of blatant sins, including sexual perversions like adultery (even marrying more than one woman), homosexuality, and pedophilia. It is reported that 250,000 children are trafficked into prostitution every year in Southeast Asia. Do you think it was tragic for the estimated 225,000 to 250,000 people to die in the 2004 disaster?
You may have forgotten to consider the children, but God has not! You may have forgotten to consider the vile sins of that pagan region of the world, but God has not! You may have forgotten the Word of God, the Holiness of God, the unrighteousness of man, and the wages of sin, BUT GOD HAS NOT! God judges sin. Sin reaps death.


The Archbishop of Canterbury, in reaction to the suffering caused by the tsunami, has made some very reprobate comments. In the January 2 issue of The Sunday Telegraph, he is quoted as saying that "The Asian tsunami disaster should make all Christians question the existence of God." Even worse, he mocked Biblical absolutes, claimed that the Scriptures provide no comfort, and basically said that prayer really doesn't help anything. Here is a man who assumes to be a Christian leader and yet does not stand for Christ. Here is a man who speaks opinions as truth rather than the eternal Word of God. Here is a man who has the foolish audacity to question the integrity of his Creator but refuses to question the integrity of sinful men. Around 70 million souls are under this man's spiritual covering, and he has resorted to lead them by the flesh! He is not the only one saying such unfounded things. And I assure you of this: "MY BRETHREN, BE NOT MANY MASTERS [i.e., TEACHERS], KNOWING THAT WE SHALL RECEIVE THE GREATER CONDEMNATION" (James 3:1). If you claim to be a Christian leader, if you claim to speak truths for God, I adjure and warn you to speak the Word of God and the Word of God alone, for you will be more strictly judged--and harshly condemned for your un-Biblical teachings.

Over the centuries, certain men have been haunted by this question: "I know men choose to do evil things, but why can't God prevent evil if He has the power?" Well, who says He doesn't prevent many evils? Do we see everything that transpires in all dimensions? Do we know everything that is taking place in every situation at all times? And as for all evil, who says that God is not working all things toward the ultimate end to eradicate all evil? He is! Read the book of Revelation. I think that the "haunting question" is a question for the presumptuous and the ignorant!


Individuals and nations are being punished for their sins. Souls are being chastised in order that they may see the error of their ways and repent. Don't interfere with God's judgments. Don't try to lessen the punishments before due time--before souls have repented and turned unto Jesus Christ the Lord. Are you God? Are you so wise that you know what everyone needs in order to serve God and live forever with Him? God has an eternal perspective and desires that all men would repent in order that they would be able to serve Him and not perish in Hellfire forever. Therefore, He is willing to take whatever actions necessary in order to bring His creation into subjectivity to Himself. Is a potter "mean" to a piece of clay because he chooses to build it up and tear it down, build it up and tear it down, until it is workable and able to be molded into a beautiful, useful vessel? Is a goldsmith "harsh" and "cruel" to his chunks of unrefined gold since he continually thrusts them into a furnace in order to purify them? God, by His love, will put men and women, boys and girls, into whatever circumstances are necessary in order to bring them forth unto repentance.


God is promoting and allowing every world event. Knowing this, what must we do? God is angry because of the sins of men. What can turn God's anger away? Heart repentance! This is what He wants in this generation from His people, both Christians and pagans--REPENTANCE!! What is repentance? To repent is to turn away from your sin, to turn from all that is wicked in the sight of the LORD; it is to turn unto God, in sincerity and truth, and follow Him for the rest of your life. To repent means that you make up your mind to not sin again, to not laugh at sin, to not take sin lightly, to not ignore your sins, and to not be silent about the sins of men. Are you ready to repent? If you do not repent, you will go to Hell. Jesus declared, "Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Luke 13:5).

The tsunami devastated the town of Meulaboh in Aceh: 80% of the town was destroyed and 80% of the people died. However, a miracle happened there. All 400 Christians who live in Meulaboh survived the tsunami disaster. Muslims had denied the Christians the right to celebrate Christmas in the town and told them they must celebrate on a high hill outside of town. The 400 Christians left town on December 25 and stayed overnight on the hill. The tsunami demolished Meulaboh on the 26th. Thousands died--but not one of the 400 Christians died. Now, of course, many Muslims and others are wondering about this obvious miracle, and they are considering that perhaps God judged that town for how they had been treating the Christians.


Misc. Words given 2-26-05

I speak unto thee and I say that men have built a god of their own assumptions. I say they have built a god of their own imaginations. I say they have built a god that is pleased in their sins. I say the god that they have built is not me. I say they have erected their altars and bowed unto the same. But I say that their gods shall fail them. I say the gods that they have erected, the gods they have constructed, are not me the Living God. But I say they are gods of their own imagination and their gods shall fail them. I say in the hour of great need they will find that their gods do not help them, no not at all, but I say that it is only those who have bowed unto me the Living God who will receive the help. I say that I will give myself unto those who are mine and I will uplift them. But I say those who have made for themselves false gods will find that their gods desert them in their hour of need. They will find that their gods are not me the Living God, they are not the God of enduring strength. I say they will cry, they will moan, but their gods will do them no good. I say do not build up false images nor false gods but I say believe in me. For I say that it is me the Living God who will give the strength unto thee. It is me the Living God who will bring thee forth in the marvelous light. I say rejoice for the privilege to be reliant upon me. I say thank me and praise me.

I say when it is me that you are looking unto I say that you are kept. But I say when you are looking unto false gods I say that you will be taken away. I say that you will be taken in my vengeance, my wrath, my fury, my indignation. I say all of those who will worship other gods will be destroyed, but those who will worship me I say they will be kept. Therefore I say seek to worship me and me alone, for I say that I am the God of righteousness, the God of mercy. I say be glad.

I say that it is me the Living God who has good intended for those who will walk uprightly. Therefore I say walk in me, giving thanks and praise. I say do not follow with the followers of false gods, do not build up gods of your own imagination, but I say let me be thy God, let me reign in my righteousness and I shall prevail. I say there are many who suffer great disappointment, for they have built up false gods. I say they have built up imaginations and images that I the Living God will not meet up to. For I say that I have my own standard and the same will prevail. But I say when men are worshiping other gods I say that they are worshiping darkness. I say worship no other god but worship me, for I alone am the one, true God. I say thank me and praise me.

I say that even my own people have built other gods. I say they have constructed those images and idols and they bow unto the same. They think that I the Living God am the same but I am not. For I say that I will not meet men in their conditions of unrighteousness. But I say that men must meet up to my condition of righteousness if they will be acceptable unto me. I say do not look for false images and idols but look for me, for I am the one, true God. I say thank me that I am the one, true God and that you can bow unto me.

I say that it is by mercy that you are brought forth, that you are uplifted. I say thank me and praise me for the same. I say that I the Living God give abundance of mercy unto thee. I say thank me and praise me for the same. I say that through my mercy you are brought forth, you are uplifted, you are given that over which to rejoice. I say thank me and praise me even this day that I give thee my mercy. I say be glad.

I speak unto thee and I say that you are brought forth by going the way that I have intended. You are not brought forth by your own imagination, but I say that your imagination is darkened. I say that it is full of carnality, it is full of deception. I say there are many who imagine and imagine and imagine they know the way into the Kingdom. But I say they only know the way of their own destruction. I say do not follow your imagination but follow me, for I am thy God. I say that I will lead thee and guide thee and direct thee in the way I have intended that you would bear much fruit. I say thank me for my sovereignty and my lordship over thee. I say be thankful to be subjects of my Kingdom.

We would like to hear from you!
