If God promises his children to supply all their "needs" why are there true believers that do not have food, water, shelter? I am not talking about "wants" rather basic "needs". Does God promise to supply the believers "needs" and if he does not then what does that mean?

I have been reading Left Behind the kids by Jerry B. Jenkins and I am curious about the 1000 year reign Jesus is going to set up on earth after the rapture. Are there going to people with bodys like we are today or just spirits? Are people going to come back from being dead and live again?
I'm so stumped on this one as I'm sure many are. 1 John 4:12 states that no one has seen God at any time. Jesus is God. The verse doesn't say 'No one has seen the Father' so that defense won't work against non-believers. Please advise and God bless.
REGARDING TODAY'S GRACE MAIL AND PSALM 139...NOT TO BE SARCASTIC, BUT A QUESTION HAS BEEN IN THE BACK OF MY MIND. IF GOD "KNOWS MY MOVEMENTS AND HAS MY LIFE CHARTED OUT FOR ME, KNOWS MY QUESTIONS AND PETITIONS BEFORE I ASK, KNOWS MY NEEDS, ETC, ETC", WHY EVEN BOTHER GIVING ME EYES OR A BRAIN, WHY FREEDOM OF CHOICE, SINCE HE KNOWS WHAT I'M GOING TO DO OR SAY, ETC?
Does God know who's going to seek Him and be saved and who isnt?
I understand it is CCC's view that the Bible Code theory is invalid. Does the Lord, however, know each of his children's future like the plot in a story (good and bad choices, sins, challenges and victories).
Who made God?
Job 1:12 indicates that the Lord took down Job's "hedge" (verse 9) of protection thus allowing Satan to inflict the carnage noted in verses 13-19. In verse 22, Job didn't lay blame at God, but what role did God play in bringing about this sequence of events? It seems, from a literal reading, that God in the very least, instigated these developments. What is an accurate rendering of these accounts? Especially in light of trusting in the Lord's provision and protection?
Did Jesus have a sin nature like us? Was he tempted to sin the same way we are tempted to sin?
How was God created if there was nothing before Him?
If God is creator of all, therefore creator of Satan, hell, and sin in general... is God creator of evil? If God is not the creator of evil, however all knowing, why does sin exist? With the existence of sin, God either allowed it with malice, forethought, or is not all powerful.
Why and how could God allow such pain and suffering of Jesus? If he is the son to him, I just don't understand why he had to endure such horrible pain and fright. Lastly I would like to know what it means when we hear the phrases that talk about fearing God. I know some people who have a hard time with religion and they specifically comment on how their God is a loving God etc, and they don't have to fear him etc. I have tried to explain this to others and it's hard to get them to understand what it really means when us Christians talk about fearing God. Thank you for the time to listen, and God Bless You.
In Job chpt 1 & 2 it seems as though God is accepting a dare from Satan at the expense of Job. I understand that God has used this example to teach us, but how do I explain to a non believer why God did this & why it appears as if God is accepting a dare from Satan? Thank you for your help.
WOULD YOU HELP ME OUT WITH PHILIPPIANS 2: 6 ? I THINK I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BUT WANT TO BE SURE. I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND " CONSIDER IT ROBBERY " ....
