Isaiah 45:5-8 KJV
(5) I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
(6) That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
(7) I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
(8) Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
Rebellion/Evil is part of the free will that is found in creation God could have very well made automatons, but where is the love, joy, and laughter in that?
One cannot be intimate with a machine; a machine cannot be intimate back; it cannot tell you how wonderful you are or how beautiful you are or how special you are. The first of the creation were angels who were not male or female, just free will children who were given one simple rule to come and worship the Son of God when the trumpet was blown.
Jeremiah 4:21-22 KJV
(21) How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?
(22) For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
Creation was created to worship, and whether you realize it or not, you worship something. One has more value than another Spycraft knows this and uses it as leverage against you to accomplish its purpose of persuasion by harming the ones you love.
God knew when the trumpet needed to be blown, and there will be a last “TRUMP” to be blown that will call the righteous in Christ home.
God created a free will individual more spectacular than any other, to restore worship back to where it needed to be on the Son of God. God made him his best friend because of who he carried in him. He went too far and insisted that he wanted to be greater than the SON, and instead of curbing the rebellion he led the rebellion, claiming he would sit in the seat reserved for the SON and even exceed it. He wanted the SON’s position in the kingdom Father insisted all things were made by HIM and for HIM.
He did not know what he was asking or anything about the SON of man. He did not even know what a woman was? He insisted along with the other faithless angels to see the SON and reveal HIS power to create. Always with wanting the power to create, he becomes a destroyer to accomplish his desire???
Very sad, indeed.
It was the Father who created all things to give to HIS SON as an inheritance for obedience to HIS perfect will, saying the SON is responsible for all they saw was not a lie; it is the TRUTH the way to bring freewill in line with God’s will.
God would like everyone to be like Jesus in moral conduct Jesus gives up HIS Spirit on the cross so that we may have it deposited in us by calling upon HIM and reading HIS word to grow the Christ nature.
God stopped being a respecter of persons when HE realized the harm it would do to those he did favor. First and only we learn is Abel, which got him killed by his brother as the enemy’s influence was brought into the garden and passed unto man. The curse on the earth was here before man was here because the fallen angels were still being dealt with as to their continued existence while allowing the stage to be built so that the angels who remained behind could learn what not to be like.
God did not create man to reveal to the angels what death was. First, he approached it with the Stars and light on light off; no sound would come from them again. He proceeded to the creation of dinosaurs to educate them as to territory and the protection of their young with the future knowledge of what humanity would need to win the war against evil.
Still, dinosaurs only became entertainment for them. To look upon the face of the most high would mean death, and again, the questioned remained for them what is death?
Genesis 1:26 KJV
(26) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Hell was not created for man, and God sends no one there; it is a free will choice not to do the will of God. However, there are dire consequences. To be separated from the one who creates all things is the absence of all things except for the eternal spirit you are, and the desires you built into that spirit becomes the soul. Jesus said hell was a place that the worm of your soul will never die; it seeks to feed on what is no longer available. The Devil cannot create; he will get to the platform temporarily, but he will never rise above the most high.
Want a good picture of the Devil’s world view? Watch the movie “Oblivion” with Tom Cruise and keep in mind God is making us all into the image of Jesus. I have a feature role in the movie because he hates me so much bobblehead, Bob.
Holiness does not need evil to know good.
What the devil meant for evil God meant for good.
You may hate him but isn’t that what he wants?
I got my call because I thought Obama was the antichrist, and I wanted to shake his hand and thank him for coming, my Jesus is next. Embrace the moment and celebrate avoid the Debbie Downers who just don’t get it.
Who am I?
Somewhere along the line, you to will respect the offering.
