1. Who is the ruler (god/God) of this earth today? God or satan? 2. Do you believe there is a time appointed by God as to when you will die (physically - for the brethren, sleep)? 3. If you believe there is a God-appointed time for you to die/sleep, then can a man with free will change that fate? Could a murderer choose of his own free will to kill you before your time? Could you make a decision of your own free will, such as to walk too close to the edge of the Grand Canyon, and fall to your death ahead of your appointed time? Is it possible?
