Discussion for Isaiah 45:7

  • DAN MINER on Isaiah 45:7
    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.
  • Grungebyte on Isaiah 45:7
    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.
  • Grung on Isaiah 45:7
    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.

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

    Here is the chapter and verse I forgot to include Isaiah 45:7
  • Patty Tozi on Isaiah 45:7
    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!!!

    You did not see God.

    That was Satan...

  • Abimael on Isaiah 45:7
    Isaiah was the first one to learn about the messiah (Jesus Christ).
  • Gwynn Matthews on Isaiah 45:7
    G.W. Matthews

    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.
