Last week while driving home the following idea popped into my mind. If it sounds right to you it came from GOD, and if not it came from my fallen brain.
GOD takes the unjust circumstances of oppressed people and turns it to their good. It rarely happens quickly, and it usually does not happen in this life. But it will work out in the long run.
GOD would prefer that all men be economically equal, in that we all have a decent home, decent clothes, and enough food to eat. Satan knows this and has turned the ideal of the law of consecration on its head. At least 90 percent of the people on this planet struggle to survive. Most of these struggling people do NOT live in the US or Canada. Most call Africa, Asia, and South America home.
How does GOD use poverty here to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of His children?
GOD allows Satan to influence the selfish people of history to create a world where it is literally dog eat dog. GOD then rewards the poor who have no control of their lives with a reversal of circumstances in the world to come.
The rich who do not share now go to Hell, and the poor who do share their meager resources go to Heaven. The rich young ruler went away sorrowing. He was not going to make it anyway. Those who he could have helped are now reaping the rewards of a humble life.
Satan's plan is turned on its head. He has created a temporary Hell for most people here, and an endless Heaven for those people to come.
If everyone would share, and everyone had an equal chance (not an equal result), everyone would have a chance to advance towards GOD in the next phase of existence. GOD knew this was never going to happen. The selfish can never form a Zion society. The next best thing is to have an unfair economic system here, in order the give the overwhelming majority of people a better chance when they pass through the veil.
GOD is maximizing the results of His creation. It sucks now for most people, but it will be worth it for anyone who makes the best of it now, and trusts GOD.
The battle between Good and evil is not a fair fight. Even if you give Satan more guys, it will not matter.
GOD will always prevail.
He is not just smarter than us all,
He is smarter than all of us put together!
