Natural disaster vs Human disaster
If you’re really innocent, you may be spared in a ‘natural disaster’ but not necessarily in a ‘human disaster’ (man-made).
But the children of the wicked ‘may not’ be spared in a ‘natural disaster’.
That may be a way to know ‘who is wicked’ vs ‘who is righteous’ since God doesn’t allow “collateral damages”.
In short, here’s a secret: I believe that God will “never” destroy nor kill ‘any righteous people’ in His own Judgment sentences (or which He allowed under the Judgment reason) —> the only way ‘His righteous’ may die is by ‘wrongful’ killing, or ‘wrongful’ acts by the wicked people toward them be it starving them to death or just via any ‘human action related disaster’ such as an accident etc. which involves the righteous’ own error or another’s.
Understand this and you’ll realize that God is ‘never’ to be blamed for anyone’s death in such horrific ways.
So if you find even “Christians” dead in such ‘natural disasters’, it’s the Christian’s faith & life which needs to be questioned (including me, if it happens to me) but certainly ‘not’ God (all other factors excluded, e.g. the wicked’s role, Satan’s role etc).
This is His ‘unchanging Principle’:
‘Even if God finds ‘ten righteous’ people in a city who ‘truly’ live according to His Truth, He will “not” destroy it via natural/supernatural forces as we can learn this as He spoke it to Abraham (literally)’:
“Then he (Abraham) said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?” And He (the LORD) said, “I will not destroy it on account of the ten.” (Genesis 18:32)
Here’s another verse confirming this ‘secret of disasters’ as described above:
“Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, if a country sins against Me by committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out My hand against it, destroy its supply of bread, send famine against it and cut off from it both man and beast, even though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, by their own righteousness they could only deliver themselves,” declares the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 14:12 – 14)
But, even Noah, Daniel or Job’s (these three men’s) sons & daughters would not be spared (each is accountable for their own sin/righteousness):
“though these three men were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the country would be desolate.” (Ezekiel 14:16)
It’s concluded again here (note that this Principle regarding disasters & Judgment is *repeated* several times in this passage —> implying its importance):
“Or if I should send a plague against that country and pour out My wrath in blood on it to cut off man and beast from it, even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their son or their daughter. They would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”
For thus says the Lord GOD, “How much more when I send My four severe judgments against Jerusalem: sword, famine, wild beasts and plague to cut off man and beast from it! ” (Ezekiel 14:19 – 21)
Note that as Scripture implies, “no” righteous is ever destroyed (no collateral damage) when God sends a ‘natural/supernatural disaster’.
Good luck to all of us.
