Discussion for Isaiah 45

  • Marquisha Jerry
    It's deep, and I like learning about the bible, and what I learned about Isaiah 45 was goid, and first time lookibg at that scripture the way I did which was awesome. Thanks for your information on the book of Isaiah chapter 45 God bless you
  • Word
    God created Satan but he was Lucifer and God created all men with Freewill and some are evil. Satan sends his tares to earth written in Matt. 13:36-44 his children. They are his because they followed him to overthrow God on the throne but were cast down/ katabole. So you could say God created evil but if you believe God created evil the way some make it sound I wouldn't want to be you. God is Love

    God is saying He did not create the earth without form and void. If you check out the word "was" in verse 2 of Genesis it is "became" and the destruction is written in Jeremiah 4 and why? in Ezekiel when Satans Pride got to him and he tried to take the throne. If you google appendix 146 of the companion bible there are two terms for foundation and katabole to cast down overthrow. 2 Peter 3 helps.

    God created this earth to be inhabited as verse 18 shows. This shows that God will always have a purpose for the earth and it is to be inhabited with the righteous.
  • Irene123
    To MT Maxwell - V. 7 says EXACTLY that. ".....and create evil, I the LORD do all these things." This is YOUR Lord God talking.
  • ELOISE
    We are not to add or take away from what is written. Isaiah 54:7 says what it says. It did not say for punishment it clearly stated I make peace and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. We are not to try to guess or second guess what we think God meant to say.
