The things that are in this life or earth are the way they are because people made them so. Consider Joshua who cursed the land of Jericho after conquering it (Joshua 6:26). Antarctica may be the way it is today because some people some time past laid a spell on it after setting off or after being slaughtered.
One thing I know is, we face or go through the struggles we go through in life in order to prove us and check whether we are the ones meant to bring deliverance to the earth. The gods of the land will not give you a free pass until you’ve proven yourself worthy as the one called to this earth to do what you have to do.
