Discussion for Isaiah 45

    President Trump did not "Declare" or "Proclaim" Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel; but "Officially Acknowledged" that fact. Israel named its own Capital, according to the 3000 plus tear old FACT! It is interesting how many haters of God and antichrists are making such an uproar about it! Not to feel sorry for them; but to take notice and keep in mind...we are in the end of the last days.

    First off, God is good and only does good. He is not evil and cannot do or create evil. He does, however create an environment where He will allow evil to exist, just as He allowed evil to exist in the garden. Since He allows evil to exist, we therefore must make a choice to do good or evil, just as our salvation is a choice.
