What about God

1.01K viewsObeah

I have been reading your blogs over the past two weeks and it has raised some questions. I am not trying to question God’s Power, because I know it exists, but why do people have to suffer. When is enough is enough?

Why God does not step-in or undo Obeah/Witchcraft/Curses that has been placed on innocent victims, especially after victims pleas the blood of Jesus over their lives and are constantly asking for relief in prayer? For instance, a baby father being tied, like in Obara’s case. There are so many repercussions, ie fragmented a family unit, children are without a father, income in the unit is lost, the woman is left feeling helpless and lost.

If God does not step-in, the victim is forever impacted by the Obeah/Witchcraft/Curse. What is he/she can’t afford a spiritualist or better yet, never find a trustworthy competent spiritualist? What if the spiritualist cannot find a solution or cannot undo what has been done?

Can you write a blog on “Why doesn’t God step-in”?

This is a really interesting question. Can’t wait to see Obara’s response.

Thank you Elia. I was nervous about posting and wasn’t sure that my question even made sense. Like, are there certain factors that are necessary for God to intervene? Just so sad that people are inflicted by evil and I am wondering WHY prayer doesn’t wash the evil away.

Just like you, I also cannot wait to read Obara’s response.

Jesuslovesus, the conclusion I have come to is that there is a mystery that surrounds why God allows someone like John the Baptist who gets trapped in prison and waits for Jesus is allowed to die in prison. It is unknown why John the Baptist dies in prison and is referred to as “Elijah” by Jesus, but when John the Baptist is questioned he denies it. It is also unknown why God hated Esau but loved Jacob. We can assume we know by reading into the text whatever we want, but the mystery still remains. Some things are just mysteries. God has his reasons. We simply do not understand these reasons. Nor do i believe we will ever be told the reasons. Who knows? I believe St. Paul said it best when he asked who knew the mind of God? The answer is no one does.

The best explanation I have come up with after scouring countless sources is something referred to as a “Dark Night of the Soul”. Please google this for more information about it. I believe i am currently going through this and it is the closest thing that describes the pain and suffering that obeah has caused in my life and why God has not explicitly intervened. Sure, he may have intervened in his own way behind the scenes, but whatever intervention that has come has been muted by the overwhelming loss and by the sheer length and number of tragedies that have come in the past 7 – 10 years. The downfall is truly breathtaking, mysterious, cruel and something that no one can truly provide an explanation for. Yeah, I do believe that someone used Obeah in my case, but why it was allowed to succeed, I have no idea. Why would our Father allow this? I do not know. Maybe one day I will understand. For now, i am trying to accept the theory that I am experiencing a Dark Night of the Soul. I just pray that the “dark night” passes fast because i am getting very tired.
