“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”
King James Version (KJV)

The word evil has two meanings. One is wickedness by men. The other is catastrophes by God, such as the Judgement by the global flood.

From Gwynn Matthews on Isaiah 45:7
>>I truly believe that God created good and evil so that we can have a choice...
More to the point, Free Will is the single best gift God the Father has given us. No other entities that God has created in the entire Universe has been so gifted. We human beings are unique.

It's interesting that King Cyrus is called anointed since King Cyrus wasn't a Jew. He was a Magi or Zoroastrian. That means that Magiism or Zoroastrianism is the only religion not condemned in the Bible. In fact it is exalted by not only King Cyrus but the 3 Magi who came to Jesus on His birth after following the star from the East - or Persia.

Actually there is one other but it is merely a sect of the oldest living religion that Christians think is a 4-letter word.

So much unrest going on. Just like Revelations shows. God warned us. Mankind and the evilness will destroy now what we once knew. Today l look at all the creations God put for us. He always wanted the best for us. Mankind destroyed it. God is a Mighty God. He takes and takes mankinds greed of me me me. The Evil laughs when we destroy it. God gets angry. I always have wrote about how He put the Earth for us because His Love is so Strong. I know. I had a after death. Saw Heaven. Saw Jesus and His Father. Saw the book of Life. Saw his Strong Light of Love for us. I would never hurt Him. I came back to show others His Love. Did not want too come back. But they had me doing something in the end days. I had a Destiny I had to do. I felt Hell going back down the tunnel. Beware all of you that don't have God in your Life. Beware....in these days. Everyday now is not your own. That virus that started this is going to come back worse then ever. Wars..space travel. Comets from the sky...weather as never before...will take everyone by surprise. You will be controlled more and more. Food...gas...where you go..how you had your freedom will silently close in on you. Seek every day your families and friends -and what you do -to the fullest. Always Praise our Mighty God for letting you have another day....Read His words and get on your knees for help. Stand Strong!!!

Isaiah was the first one to learn about the messiah (Jesus Christ).
Jesse's comment on 2020-04-28 10:03:44:
If I might add, in the creation account back in Genesis, if you notice during creation, after day one through day 6 of creation, after each day it says it was good. But if you notice the seventh day, it doesn't say it was good. That's because we are still in the seventh day right now. And during this entire time frame, man has been evil.
Marie's comment on 2020-04-28 02:24:22:
I believe everything God created is good, man has created evil.

Not everyone would see it that way. God bless. Matthew 12:36-37
Chris's comment on 2020-04-27 22:28:33:
Adam, thank you for alerting me to Mt 5:22: re: fool. That Scripture refers to the use of the word (Raca) when it is directed to the person in anger: Thou fool = you worthless, good for nothing idiot. How you can apply that word usage to describe someone's thoughts or standing before God as a risky position is beyond my knowledge of our language. Should I clarify further with Scriptures, of which there are many & you would be well aware of: Gal 3:1,3; Mt 7:26; 25:2,3,8; Rom 1:21, 2:20, 10:19. In all these references, which are akin to my usage, the word 'foolish' is lawful in its use, & not to be associated with direct 'name calling', which is undoubtedly under girded with the sin of anger. Blessings.
bob Hilt's comment on 2020-04-27 10:48:18:
Greetings Adam, I overall agree with your statement that the Lord did not create evil however....
Isaiah 45:7 I (Lord) form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Darkness is absence of light. The Lord created everything good as in Genesis 1: 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
All God created was good, no evil yet Job 38 records the sons of God shouting for joy at the foundation of the earth. So they must be angels since Adam did not exist till 6 days after the earth. Lucifer was in existence and been good.
Ezekiel 28 records the fall of Lucifer
Verse 15 "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."
Created, not born or formed...
Yes God created Lucifer good who you point out rightfully that he had freewill to fall and he became evil. Since God created all he did evil to
Adam's comment on 2020-04-27 09:33:12:
God doesn't create evil, but allows evil, because he allows freewill to choose right or wrong. Satan is allowed to tempt us just as God allowed Job to be tempted and tested. We are all being tested while here on earth.
BTW, Chris I think its risky to call someone foolish or a fool because of Matthew 5:22.
Chris's comment on 2020-04-27 06:14:41:
Gwynn, you're on very dangerous ground to believe that God created both good & evil. I had an uncle who also said similarly & he believed that since we have good & bad things on Earth & since He is Supreme, that God also created evil. How wrong & foolish he was. God can never be a creator of anything evil. Either God is Good or evil, not both. Can the Devil also share this inconceivable trait? Never, he is altogether evil. How about humans? Some say we can be both good & evil. The Bible teaches us that all of us are inherently evil (Rom 3:23) (i.e. we all have a sin nature passed down generations from our first parents), that even if we commit the smallest sin, then the whole person is a sinner. (1 Cor 5:6 speaks about a little leaven = sin, leaveneth the whole lump). God is Holy. There are many, many references to this, but apostle John gives us a vision of Heaven & sees the heavenly beings cry out "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD God Almighty, which was, is & is to come" (Rev 4:8).
Gwynn Matthews's comment on 2020-04-26 19:09:59:
I truly believe that God created good and evil so that we can have a choice. He doesn't want robots but people who would want to love Him. That's why I believe He put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the mist of garden so we can have a choice. He loves us that much. He didn't want to force us to love Him but freely love Him. It's God good.
celyne's comment on 2015-06-05 22:13:19:
God is the creator and the cause of everything. But we must bear in mind that God FAVORS everything that is good, true and just. He even urges us to do good. He is fair for He rewards those who follow His will and punishes those who don 't. He divides light life wisdom from darkness death fool. He keeps the dead unbeliever in the dark. He let the living believers understand and appreciate His ways. Everything God does is good. Truly, God is good. To God be the glory.

Everything that happens in this world is and will be by will of God.
