The spiritual world exists. There are demons and Satan. Halloween highlights this reality.
Although it is good for Christians to focus on Christ and celebrate the Reformation Day on October 31, the world’s celebration of Halloween shows that the world recognizes the existence of evil spiritual world.
Romans 9 emphasizes that God hates Esau. God hates some people. Everyone has to submit to the authority of the Bible and should not lie and say that God loves everyone. God hates some people. This is explicitly stated in the Holy Bible, which is the Word of God.
God chooses to show mercy to some, and God chooses not to show mercy to others. This is clear on God killing first-born children of every Egyptian in the Book of Exodus. God chooses to love some and hate others. This is who God is.
Before the Creation of the World, God decided to love some and to hate others. Thus, God predestined some to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and God predestined others to reject Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
You may not know whether God predestined you or not, but if you choose to reject Jesus Christ and die in this state, then you can be positive that God predestined you to eternal damnation before the Creation of the World.
Romans 1 clearly shows that God has chosen to hate homosexuals. This hatred was predestined before the Creation of the World. In other words, if you choose to be a homosexual, then you had been predestined to eternal damnation by God before the Creation of the World. God had chosen to hate you, the gay or transgender person, just like God had chosen to hate Esau before he was even born.
Homosexuals who say that they are “born this way” can know for 100% certain that God had chosen to hate them before the Creation. God’s hatred for homosexuals and transgender people is eternal in nature. 100% of homosexuals are going to eternal damnation in HELL because God predestined them to eternal damnation in HELL before they were born and chose to hate them as God had chosen to hate Esau.
The Holy Bible is emphatic in stating that God hates some people, and God hates homosexuals.
Yes, history is “His Story”, meaning that God guides history.
This is clear when you read any history. One history in particular, the history of the English Reformation, shows that God guided history to bring the Reformation to England. Without the English Reformation, there would not have been Puritans. Without Puritans, there would not have been Plymouth or Massachusetts Bay Colony. In fact, the United States of America would not have been predominantly Protestant Christian.
How did English Reformation happen? It was not a pure road, like in Germany, where Martin Luther, following the Holy Bible, sacrificed himself to bring the German Reformation. But sometimes, God uses the things of this world to effectuate God’s Will.
The TV Show, “The Tutors”, illustrates this, as it accounts the events before, during, and after the English Reformation. (Warning: The program is Rated R).
God works in mysterious ways in history to bring about God’s Will. God’s ways are not man’s ways….
Obviously, Christians must do all they can to follow the Bible and act according to the Bible. But Christians must recognize that God sometimes uses “unconventional” means to bring about what God wants. History, as well as the Holy Bible, is proof of this.
