God in the Dock

Can you love a God who knows everything, who can do anything, and yet does nothing? Not many can when the struggles of life inevitably come. The fact is, "Good and bad things happen to all men."

Modern Christianity has redefined God's attributes by traditions and which creates irrational resentment toward the God who loves us.

Don't reject God because of wrong expectations. One day our loved ones will die. Remember, in this life you will have trouble, it's not a result of the lack of God's love or ability. Trials are for our perfection.

Don't you feel better that God walks with us daily?

Go to the Scriptures and seek out what is true about our God and his intentions toward us.

Chapter 9: Jesus Heals the Nobleman's Son (Part 2)

Jesus returned to Cana in Galilee, the place where he had made the water into wine at the marriage feast.  Hearing that Jesus had come back to Galilee from Judea, a nobleman, whose son was sick to the point of death in Capernaum, went to meet him.  He besought Jesus to heal his son.

To the nobleman Jesus said:

“Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.”

The nobleman replied:

“Sir, come down ere my child die.”

Jesus responded:

“Go thy way; thy son liveth.”

The man believed the promise Jesus had made to him and started toward home.  While still on his way he was met, the following day, by his servants, who said:

“Thy son liveth.”

The nobleman inquired as to the hour his son began to amend and his servants

replied:

“Yesterday at the seventh hour [1 o’clock] the fever left him.

So, the father knew that it was at the same hour Jesus had told him his son

lived.  Accordingly, he believed as did all others in his house.
