I have to smile at your opening sentence. As if you would agree on anything I say. Lol.
Still , I shall persevere.
God is definitely omnipotent however there are several references in the bible which clearly infer that he is not omnipresent or Omni prescient. I do
not want to cite verse, there are plenty of people only too happy to, and you can easily do the research.
The only blessing God gives is to the Good. Without his grace the bad would have overtaken us all long before now. It still might . To suggest that
God blesses the bad is, I have to tell you, imaginative speculation with no foundation of truth.
God's revelations come complete and they don't hide anything. They appear like a movie except you see it all in the same instant - no other way to
describe it. Afterwards, I slow it down in my mind as I run over it to put it into linear form that my mind can process. I think God helps me to do
that. Its a beautiful experience.
The 'snake' befriended Eve in God's absence and in her innocence she fell for its deceptive charms. It seduced Adam in God's absence. God's
anger on discovering the snake's treachery was such that he would have destroyed his creation right then if he had not been forced to accept some of
the blame himself, for not being there.
Finally, I am not one of God's children. I am his Ant. That is how he looks upon me. When I forced his focus upon me, as I described in an earlier
post, he was so angry at my temerity that he threatened to destroy me.
However, to my eternal gratitude, he chose to acknowledge my stubborn courage and allowed me to continue existing. He chooses from time to time to
spring wonderful surprises upon me such as the revelation under discussion.
Do not think, please, that I have fallen under the spell of a demon, or whatever. God gave me a demonstration of his omnipotence that leaves no iota
of doubt as to who he is.
I don't expect you to believe a word of what I have written but thank you for taking the interest to at least listen.
Oh and as to the wilderness I know it with an intimacy that few share.
