Where is God? (EN)
HELP – WHERE IS GOD?
I’m disappointed, sad, and angry! War, people flee, famine, incurable diseases, everywhere death, and destruction. Exploitation of nature, waste of resources, unimaginable profits at the expense of the poor (2 Timothy 3,1-5).
If God is really omnipotent, he can change everything. Why does He not intervene? Where is God? Is the heaven empty? And after all, is there a God?
HOW IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
God lets the sun shine for us, gives rain, gives prosperity to sowing and reaping – and you receive and receive. Where is your gratitude? (Romans 1:21) You know the rules of God. (The ten commandments in Exodus 20: 2) Do you really abide in them? You blaspheme not, kill nobody, cheat not, do not steal, do not commit adultery, you honor your parents, have no desire for your neighbor`s holidays, car, house, or partner? You don´t know envy, strife or sinful thoughts? You do everything to take away the distress, anxiety and despair from others? (James 4:17)
You are living like Jesus, the Son of God, quite without sin?
A child murderer and even a liar can not escape God. God is just and his wrath is coming. (Revelation 20,11-15)
The one who doesn´t live like Jesus Christ is guilty. God passes his judgment on you and decides about your eternity. Religion, donations and good works are not enough to compensate guilt. “There is none righteous, not even one.” (The Bible, Romans 3.10) With unforgiven guilt you cannot escape his wrath, your eternal condemnation. (Romans 2.2 to 16) What a grace that God is waiting with his judgment. (1 Timothy 2.4)
Without Jesus, the judgment will hit you.
WHY WAS JESUS CHRIST BORN?
To stop disease, war and misery? He came to defeat the source of sin, which is the Devil, and call you to repentance! He said: “I am not come to call righteous persons, but sinful ones to repentance.” (Luke 5.32) Read the whole story in the Bible.
THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS!
“For he come … to minister, and give his life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45) God becomes man to serve. The greatest service was, to die as a man for many men on the cross. Jesus Christ paid with his life the penalty of sins before God. He loves you so much.
You need Jesus as your substitute and your savior, – you shouldn´t be lost forever.
TAKE COURAGE FOR THE “FIRST STEP”
God loves you, he comes to meet you! He like to set you free from your sins, likes to save you, and fill your heart with his joy and his peace. We ask you: “Answer today to God’s love!”. Choose a quiet place and pray to God. (Matthew 6.6)
Confess God all your many sins, ask Him for mercy – then He will forgive. (1 John 1.9 + Luke 18:13)
Without confession God doesn`t forgive. (Psalm 32.5) Believe that the Lord Jesus is your savior, – that he died for you. (Acts 16:31) After this you will also belong to the “many” who are saved.
Only then will Jesus Christ come into your life. He will stand by you in every suffering and after your life here on this earth, you will be with him in heaven. In this place there will be no more suffering.

Quotes of the Bible
1.) 2 Timothy 3,1-5
But this know, that in the last days difficult times will be there; for men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, evil speakers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, profane, without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, of unsubdued passions, savage, having no love for what is good, traitors, headlong, of vain pretensions, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; having a form of piety but denying the power of it: and from these turn away.
3.) Romans 1:21
Because, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but fell into folly in their thoughts, and their heart without understanding was darkened:
2.) The ten commandments in Exodus 20: 2
You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make yourself any graven image, or any form of what is in the heavens above, or what is in the earth beneath, or what is in the waters under the earth: you shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them; for I, Jehovah your God, am a jealous ∙God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and to the fourth generation of them that hate me, … You shall not idly utter the name of Jehovah your God; for Jehovah will not hold him guiltless that idly utters his name. … Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land that Jehovah your God gives you. You shall not kill. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not desire your neighbor’s house, you shall not desire your neighbor’s wife, nor his bondman, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbor’s. … You shall not make beside me gods of silver, and you shall not make to you gods of gold. …
4.) James 4:17
To him therefore who knows how to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.
5.) Revelation 20,11-15
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled, and place was not found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is that of life. And the dead were judged out of the things written in the books according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged each according to their works: and death and hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, even the lake of fire. And if any one was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
6.) Romans 2.2 to 16
But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth upon those who do such things. And think you this, O man, who judge those that do such things, and practice them yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? or despise you the riches of his goodness, and forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? but, according to your hardness and impenitent heart, treasure up to yourself wrath, in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each according to his works: to them who, in patient continuance of good works, seek for glory and honor and incorruptibility, life eternal. But to those that are contentious, and are disobedient to the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and indignation, tribulation and distress, on every soul of man that works evil, both of Jew first, and of Greek; but glory and honor and peace to every one that works good, both to Jew first and to Greek: for there is no acceptance of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law will perish also without law; and as many as have sinned under law will be judged by law, (for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law will be justified. For when those of the nations, which have no law, practice by nature the things of the law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves; who shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts accusing or else excusing themselves between themselves;) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men, according to my glad tidings, by Jesus Christ.
7.) 1 Timothy 2.4
who desires that all men should be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
8.) Matthew 6.6
But you, when you pray, enter into your chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will render it to you.
9.) 1 John 1.9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and clean us from all unrighteousness.
10.) Luke 18:13
And the tax-gatherer, standing afar off, would not lift up even his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, O God, have compassion on me, the sinner.
11.) Psalm 32.5
I acknowledged my sin unto you, and my iniquity I covered not; I said, I will confess my transgressions unto Jehovah, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
12.) Acts 16:31
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your house.
