Conversation Number 12

Conversations are updated as He leads.

Disclaimer
The following conversation between a believer and God is not meant to represent a specific theology or theological truth. It represents one believer's struggle and the response that believer represents as God's truth for that believer and that believer alone.

Good morning Lord, I love you.
I love you back my son. You are not happy with me today.

I want to be Lord. You see, I saw this question on a message board. The question was, "Is God a psychopath?" I know you are not. However, I know why the person wrote the question. There are children, there are toddlers who are beaten, molested, abused, starved, tortured, and hurt in unspeakable ways. How could you? How can you let this kind of thing go on to innocent children? How can you permit this kind of thing?
I do not permit, I forbid.

You may forbid, but it is not working. It is still going on.
Yes, I know it is. I feel every hurt. What they do to my children, they do to me.

How can you let it go on? I want an answer here. I am angry about this. I am furious about this. Not only are the children hurt, but when they grow up, they will do the same things to other children and other adults. The stinking abuse gets into a cycle that lasts for generations. What is the reason? Why?
There are some things I cannot tell you. There are some things I cannot reveal. What I am going to tell you, you must trust as an answer. When things were originally set-up, I created capacities in human beings. I created potentials in them. Some people are given more potential, some less. When these potentials were or now are given to each person what is given is an empty space. That empty space can either be filled by each person or by me. If I fill that empty space, there is no soaring of the soul. If I fill that empty space then the soul of the person disappears because the soul of every person is rooted in freedom. Each person must be free to choose how the empty spots or potentials are to be filled. Today, some people do not want to believe there is a hell fire. People who do terrible things to my children will live in hell fire because they deserve to live there. These people made choices about what goes into their potential or empty spots.

I still want to know, why do you let this go on? Why do you let these people do what they do? Why do you let them exist?
I just told you. These people exist because of the choices they make, not because of what I did or am now doing.

But you can stop them. You can prevent this kind of thing, this abuse and horrible terror from happening.
I am going to stop it. I am going to stop the way things are now done.

When? When will all this end?
Some day soon. I have had enough.

Why did you set things up like this in the first place?
For human beings to reach the mountaintop there must be a low area. Tops of mountains exist because there is a valley or a base of the mountain. Remaining in sin is a choice. Being born in sin is not a choice you can opt out of, but remaining in sin is a choice you make. The emptiness in a person can be filled with my love or with the darkness. Each person is born into darkness but can turn away toward my Light of Love.

Why did you set things up like you did? Are you so full of ego, so full of yourself that you wanted all this glory for yourself? Tell me the truth.
It was never about me. It was always about you and all the other human beings on earth. Satan and his scum minions have invaded where they did not belong. They have crossed lines they should not have crossed. Human beings now relish the darkness without even a shred of knowledge about the truth about me. You and all other human beings were designed to soar across all the universes of your reality and all the other realities I have created. Today, there is little soaring.

I keep asking this. I keep repeating this. Why did you create things this way?
I did not create things to be this way. I created everything to be and to live in perfect harmony with me. Life in the Garden of Eden was perfect for Adam and Eve. Things have gone downhill since then.

Did you make a mistake? If you had it to do over again, would you do things differently.
I did everything perfectly. Within the confines and boundaries of what I created, everything was done perfectly. When I gave persons potentials and choices, I opened up the opportunity for sin. There was no other way to give human beings potentials and choices. I want to tell you this so you will understand more fully how things work. Everything evens out. Every hurt is assuaged. Every wrong made right. Every disability undone. Every crime against a person or against humanity is erased. Every pain is erased. All the darkness that is put in a person's life no matter what form the darkness takes is erased when they die. A child who is abused, hurt, injured, tortured, maimed, humiliated, or whatever darkness is inflicted, comes to me and rests in my arms. When I pick up this child, all the darkness is gone. Instead of darkness, there is only my Light of Love. If this hurting child grows to adulthood and has inflicted pain on others and made willful choices knowing the consequences, those willful choices remain after the darkness is erased. This adult, who was abused as a child, will stand in judgement. When the judgment is made, the darkness of the past that was inflicted on them is gone and their choices remain. Even if you were hurt and abused as a child, you still stand in judgment. However, my judgment is fair and just. Only I can be fair. I can see all that is and was in a person's life. You knew a boy who is now a man. You thought about him yesterday when you were eating lunch. You saw and see his potential when most others did not or can not. If you can see his potential, I can see more. I am forgiving. I am willing to erase the past. You must hope. You must trust. You must love so the children do not suffer.

All this is wonderful, but I still have this image of this poor child who is being victimized. I know we have been over this before, but why don't you just stop it all?
I am going to stop it. I am going to stop it all. I cannot tell you how or when, but I will stop it. I am at the point of no return in my patience. I am at a place where my anger and wrath can no longer be contained. My precious Son intervenes but there is a limit to how much I can stand to see happen in the world. There will come a day when the little children will jump and play and always be free of darkness. Believe me. The day is soon approaching. You must trust and believe. You must have faith. I know you are not concerned with the end of time but you must have faith and believe there will be an end of time for that is when the children will run and play and be free.

I love you Lord. I do not know whether I like these answers, but I will try to accept them as your words to me.
You will understand in time. I love you back my son. I love you eternally, in all ways, in all forms, in all magnitudes. Do not worry about your future because I am with you.
