Why does calamity happen?

Whenever we turn on the news we hear about natural disasters like flood, earthquake, storm,hurricane,famine ,forest fire etc. It is so sad to see people suffering. But now let us see why does it happen in the world?

World may come with may reasons like global warming,climate change etc. But the bible says that God is the one who sends calamity as in
Amos 3:6 If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done [it?] 
Amos 4:6 ,7Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; "I also withheld rain from you.
God sends all the calamities so people would repent of their sins and seek him with whole heart. 
The fourth chapter of Amos (6-12) clearly reveals the calamities that God would send to a place where the people have not returned to him.
 Amos 4:7,8: I also withheld rain from you, When [there were] still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, And where it did not rain the part withered. So two [or] three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

Whenever we see a calamity in the place we live let us warn others to come out of their sins and seek God. 
Let us live a holy and righteous life that is pleasing to God.

Shepherds scatter the flock

 Shepherds of today's churches scatter the flock. The shepherds just feed themselves,wear the costliest dress and enjoys the dedicated money given to them by  the people for God's work. They don't strengthen the weak nor go after the lost. (Ezekiel 34:2-5)

The Christians in this world are living a sinful life as the shepherds did not teach them the ways of God .

So let's not go after the shepherds of this world  who are just hirelings but after the one true Shepherd Jesus Christ. The good Shepherd Jesus laid down his life for us and we are commanded to obey his word. If we abide in his word ,we will know the truth and the truth will set us free.

Reason for divorce in marriage

Mark 10 :6-9: But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’
‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’;so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Most of the marriages in today's world end up in divorce. The world may come up with many reasons like misunderstanding,not adjusting with one another...etc.

But the main reason is that the wife/husband does not  have Jesus in their heart.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

When the wife/husband seeks the Kingdom of God and his righteous (ie...being holy and righteous) first then there will be peace in the family.

If things are not right in your family it is time you set things right with God first.

Immodesty among Christian women

Some Christian women do not live a life honouring God. They satisfy the desires of their flesh by wearing immodest dresses. They wear dresses to bring attention to themselves such as wearing very fitting dresses and showing off more flesh. They are even a stumbling block to others within and outside the church. The saddest part is even the elderly women in the church don't tell them.

Every tree is known by its fruit. If you are not living a life of honouring God in the church and in the world then it means you are a bad tree producing bad fruit.
Mat 7:17,19 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Christian worship became worldly concert

Christian worship in today's world is so pathetic. It resembles like a worldly concert with dim lights, flashing lights, smoke of dancers/singers in the background. If the music goes off people there will not be able to worship.

The sound of the music is sometimes too loud that it is even hard to hear the song. Most of the worship has become a performance to display their musical expertise.

If your worship resembles like what was mentioned above then it would be just a noise in front of God and He would not be hearing it as in
Amo 5:23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs, For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments.
As Christians we are called to worship as in
John 4:24 God [is] Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
If you are not able to worship without music maybe you are worshipping the music and not Jesus.
