MentorshipRevolution Question Column 6th Edition

Mission Statement : MR is designing a question column because we truly believe questions are the gateway to knowledge and wisdom. We are encouraging our supporters and the people in societies to seek information that can bring about positive change, individual growth, and community growth.

What’s the deal: As of now MR will randomly answer a question every now and then- that we all have asked once in our life, or at least will eventually. We desire for the questions to be asked by the people, but we don’t have a problem creating them. To send in a question please email the question to mentorshiprevolution 24.7@gmail.com or leave it on a commitment at the website mentorshiprevolution.com. Enjoy reading!

In this edition of MR’s Question Column we will explore the answers to “What Is God Doing Now?”. Sounds interesting, right? BTW guest Billy Lonas will be the one answering the question for this column edition. Enjoy😊

Question #6: In today’s world there is ongoing and never ending conflict and debate about who God really is. Of course Christians believe in God, but what about those people who challenge the existence of God. An important place to start may be asking the question “If God is real then what is he doing now?”

MR’s Response (Billy Lonas):

What do you visualize God doing now? Some may see God as sitting on a throne making decisions as to who is doing good and who is doing bad (Sounds a little like Santa Claus). Some may think that God has abandoned mankind altogether. And there are those that think there is no God at all. After all look at all the wrong doing going on in the world. What is God doing?

Where can we find the answer to the question, “What is God doing now?” For me the place to go is the bible. Genesis 2: 2 thru 4 says, “

Genesis 2: 2 thru 4 says, “2 On the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

2 On the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He had rested from all His work which He had created and made.”

This scripture is saying that God went into His rest day. The first six days were days of creation. It then says that God went into His rest day.

Does that mean that God has stopped caring about mankind? Does it mean that He has not done anything since the last thing He created?

No it doesn’t mean that God has stopped caring about mankind or that He has forgotten about us. How do we know that? Because Jesus tells us in John 5:17, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” To understand what God is doing we must see the overall picture as He does. God went into His rest day after creating Eve. The prior five days were creative days as well as the sixth day after Eve’s creation.

My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” To understand what God is doing we must see the overall picture as He does. God went into His rest day after creating Eve. The prior five days were creative days as well as the sixth day after Eve’s creation.

So, if the prior days were creative days, then the seventh day or His day of rest, must contain the same time as the other six creative days.

To understand what God is doing we must see the overall picture as He does. God went into His rest day after creating Eve. The prior five days were creative days as well as the sixth day after Eve’s creation.

When Jesus made the statement that God was still working he is clearly telling us that even though God is still in His creative rest day, He is still working on repairing the damage done by Satan, Adam and Eve. That’s why He sent Jesus to die for our sins, among many other things He has done prior to the coming of Christ. It would be very wrong to think that God is doing nothing or that He doesn’t care about us.

That’s why He sent Jesus to die for our sins, among many other things He has done prior to the coming of Christ. It would be very wrong to think that God is doing nothing or that He doesn’t care about us.

Through time God has stayed in the back ground of human existence so as not to interfere with their experiment of governing themselves. But God also knew that their experiment would fail.

That’s why He worked with only certain people through history to bring mankind back into a relationship with Him. That relationship with any one person or group of persons ended with the death of Jesus Christ.

Because now we all through Jesus can have a relationship with God. of governing themselves.

But there is a time limit. The time limit of His creative rest day. Which according to the bible is almost here. His creative rest day is coming close to the end. He will soon go back into another creative work day. But before He does, all things will be as He intended them to be here on earth. Because He tells us this, “

But before He does, all things will be as He intended them to be here on earth. Because He tells us this, “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+55%3A11&version=NIV

So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+55%3A11&version=NIV

God’s original purpose was for Adam and his offspring to live in a paradise here on earth with all the animals being tame and everyone being part of a family. His family. That has not changed and it will be that way soon. How much longer will God wait before He brings in His kingdom? No one knows exactly, not even Jesus himself. He said, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

But Jesus did give us signs to be looking for. You can read Matthew chapter 24. Many will say, “Well these things have been happening since man’s beginning” and that’s true. But here’s what makes the difference. In verse 34 of that chapter Jesus clearly tells us that all these things would happen within one generation. There has never, ever been a generation on earth like the one that is in place now.

In verse 34 of that chapter Jesus clearly tells us that all these things would happen within one generation. There has never, ever been a generation on earth like the one that is in place now.

So God is waiting until the last possible minute that He can wait, before bring it to an end. Why? So that in the future after Jesus Christ hands the kingdom back to his Father, (1 Corinthians 15:24) no one will ever be allow to challenge God’ way of governing.

You have just completed reading MR’s Question Column the 6th Edition. In this edition we sought the answer to what exactly is God doing in today’s world. I hope you were enlightened and encouraged!
