Discussion for Isaiah 45

  • A disciple
    "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." It was told to Israel at the first, that they bring the Word to all Nations, and that they would first proclaim to them Peace, and make war only after they would not submit; (Deut. 20:10-20): but Israel failed this. It was ever in the LORD's heart to save the world, and so it is now our calling.

    The word evil means bad like the verse about the bad figs. God doesn't do evil. He created good and therefore he created the opposite of good.

    Regarding this comment; "the evil came from Adam and Eve's sin, every evil came after the fall,evil was not before the fall" According to scripture evil existed before the fall; Gen.2:9,and 2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it:for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" God planted this tree, then placed Adam and Eve in the garden.

    JW - the evil came FROM Adam 'n Eve's sin. They are not separate entities. The first murder came AFTER the fall. Every evil came AFTER. Evil was not before the fall.

    satan didn't 'send' anything to earth, much less tares. The tares are sinners who follow satan in their evil, sinful ways. They REJECT Jesus after having been told of Him and His plan of salvation - Acts 2:38. Just like everyone in Genesis who rejected God through Noah's preaching. Jesus tells us PLAINLY what the tares are. Read your Bible with prayer to Jesus to open your eyes.

    Marquisha Jerry What's awesome is God put that next verse after how He created the earth as if He was saying open your eyes seek you will find truth and with Me, listening to Me, not man but with Me you will hear the truth of what the scripture say. His wisdom speaks in Proverbs 8vs 22-31 in 2 Peter 3vs 5-7how the old world which means world age perished. Jer.4 vs 23-27 but not to full end. Pray.
