a hope on earth/spiritual warfare, 3 of? – God is not willing that any should perish, 2 Peter 3:8-10


I have been rolling this around for some time now.  The story of Job reveals Satan’s use of a whirlwind to strike at man.  Job’s children were killed when Satan sent a whirlwind & the house collapsed, Job 1:19.  Another word for whirlwind?  Tornado, cyclone, hurricane depending on the size, strength, and/or location over water or land.  Jump to today.

Currently, a means of tornado and hurricane prediction exists along with ways to protect humanity from them.  I see God providing watchcare for humanity.  I also see this in medicine.  Where Job was struck with a horrific disease with worms & sores, Job 7:5, we have what we call modern medicine, timeline at the National Library of Medicine:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4379645/ .  I realize we haven’t perfected these things but we are a long way from having no way to intervene against our unseen enemy.

What boggles my mind is that these interventions are available for even those who have rejected God.  What is God working on providing for us next?  I would ask why is God doing this but I know God’s word:  Peter tells us God is not willing that any should perish, 2 Peter 3:8-10, and so we see His intervention to make that a reality.
