Who Was Answering Their Prayers? by onyfrank: 6:13pm On Aug 07, 2013
In the bible, Isrealites were taken as God's chosen tribe, and God is for them and answers their prayers.
But all these other nations, kingdoms and tribes, that worshipped idols, who was answering their prayers? They flourish in agriculture, and technology wise, dat sometimes Isrealites went to them during famine, and their land flows with milk and honey.

Or a bill gates. Who answers his 'prayers'?

Not god? But when an oyedepo buys a jet, it's god.....

Exactly what is going on here?

And to compound on this, the omnixx.x. So, is the omnipotent god letting the devil corrupt, or is he powerless? Is he simply the ultimate troll?

unfortunately, the atheists found you first. Read the bible mate(though if you don't have Gods spirit, it might confuse you further). Israel sinned, thats why they had famine. God promised Israel that they would lend to the nations if they obeyed him. For example, in the time of solomon and other good kings, Israel was like the centre of the world, people and kings flocked there to see the beauty of a place whose king had Gods wisdom, it didnt last long shaa.

Don't get it twisted @ op, God is not just the God of Israel. He is the God of all. He only chose Israel to display His work through and that messiah should also come through them and the whole be saved.

So asking who answers those other people's prayer, it is the same God. Though they never recognized and worshiped Him, it is this same reason for choosing Israel and Christ coming through them.

When Adam n Eve sinned, it translated to the whole human race and we lost God. So God started the work of redemption of the whole human race through Israel and ended up in Christ coming.

ok, maybe in time of ignorance, God overlooks. Despite these kingdoms and there idol worships, He keep making them strong, sometimes taken Isrealites as captives and slaves.
So y would they forsake there idol worshipping after many years of been succeful, and powerful. How would u convince such nations then that their idols are not answering there prayers?
Well, one may say, whether u call on Him or not, He remain what He is and His love is 4 All.
So y d preachn 4 conversion?
Re: Who Was Answering Their Prayers? by onyfrank: 3:30am On Aug 08, 2013
I think the best preaching should 'MAN KNOW THYSELF'

U still don't get it do u? God doesn't do things for the immediate but rather for the ultimate good which why many atimes we can understand Him. God wasn't trying to prove to those people their idols wasn't the one answering their prayers, though atimes he makes them understand by His miraculous act to Israel n His prophets. But He overlooked at the time of Ignorance, but now that all is set there is no excuse for any n command all to repent. Read Acts 17:30-31.

This is the reason for the preaching, everyone has been given opportunity n is expected to repent 'cos a day has been set for judgement. And this is why necessity is laid on a xtian to preach the word to all as a testimony to every man. This is why one of the prophecy to be fulfilled before Jesus coming is that The gospel would get to everyone.

Good question.

It can also be asked: "who is answering their prayers?"

There are many nations that dont believe in yahweh or worship something else altogether today. They all still prosper. Some prosper more than the god worshipers. Who is doing that? especially in the light of Pastor Olu's explanation of a master plan to explain away the old testament ones.

The first thing u need to know boss is that, the fact that one is prospering does mean that it is God behind it is a very wrong assumption. There are laws (physical n spiritual) if when abide by would yield results, even God Himself don't bypass these laws (mostly spiritual ones anyways) many atimes.
Its like God is not that active in this present world which is true 'cos everything has been set in place we are just meant to follow suit, the choice is ours. But He has reserved a day to judge all, for there will always be consequences for our choices.

Yet you still pray to god to make things better when everything has been set in place?. . . .

Very interesting question considering the fact that Yahweh has declared them to be his enemy and the enemy of his people. . .
