COINCIDENCE 4

In Coincidence 1-3 we read that there are such things as coincidence and random accidents.  Also, there are bad
things that happen to people as a result of the devil and his fallen angels as well as good things that happen to
people as a result of God and his angels.

So, is there any protection from the devil, his fallen angels and those doing evil things?

Psalms 12:7  O Lord, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people (the wicked) forever.

Psalms 121:7  The Lord will keep you from all harm- he will watch over your life.

Proverbs 1:33  but whoever LISTENS TO ME will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.

Proverbs 2:8  He guards the coarse of the just and protects the way of the faithful ones.

Proverbs 12:21  No harm befalls the righteous but the wicked have their fill of trouble.

1 John 5:18  We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin;  the one who was born of God keeps
him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.

John 14:30  My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

Ephesians 6:11-12  Put on the FULL ARMOR OF GOD so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers
of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.

The above scriptures seem to suggest that believers are protected from the devil, his fallen angels and those that
do evil.

If this was true, why do some Christians die young?  For example, some Christians die in plane crashes, some are
murdered, some are harmed in war, etc.  We will answer this question next week.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
