I Make Peace, and Create Evil…

 I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things

Isaiah 45:7 (KJV)

Good day to each of you reading this lesson—We have turned another page in history with the COVID-19 virus affecting each of us in our daily lives. Jesus, says, Fear not, for I am with you, always!

Before I begin, here are a couple of questions to ponder? Was this virus created by God or by Satan? The above verse indicates that God creates evil, did he create Satan? Why does God create evil?

Questions to ponder in these troubling times but take heed and remember when these things begin to take place such as COVID-19, stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

Our Lord speaks very clearly of pestilences in Matthew 24:7 & Luke 21:28 and the word pestilence is used 47 times in Old Testament. Hear is another interesting fact—Turn to Deuteronomy 28—I utilize the Ferrar Fenton version to get the full scope of the Blessings of Obedience and the curses of revolt from God.

Verse 4 says Blest in the fruit of your body and verse 18 says Cursed in the fruit of your body, Verse 10-12 (FF) Then every People of the earth will see that the Name of the Ever-Living has been fixed upon you, and they will fear you, when the Ever-Living causes to abound in benefits; in the fruit of your body; and the fruit of your cattle; and the fruit of your fields; in the land which the Ever-Living promised to your fathers to give to you.

The above verses show what God will do for each of us if we ONLY are OBEDIENT to Him! But our world and our people are not obedient—Obedience and Marriage go hand in hand for you much work at this daily and you must love daily and become least.

Diseases, pestilences, earthquakes, wars, famines and disasters will come forth because we are not obedient to God. Here, in Deuteronomy 28 gives each of us reading this chapter that the Israelite people are given a choice of either being obedient and receiving the blessings or disobedient and receiving the curses.

As you look at verse 22, The Lord will strike you with consumption, and fever, and wasting, and burning; and with sword, and blight, and jaundice, and pursue until you perish! Here are examples of how history repeats itself!

But all is not lost, and this virus will find a cure for there is a remnant of Christians throughout the world praying for this cure. You may ask, how do I know this? I know that nothing is too big for our creator and that God, who hath created all things including the air that we breathe can give us the means to fight this virus.

We know that if we are obedient to God and follow his commandments, statutes and laws including the food laws, then we will receive the blessings and He will take care of each us both physically and mentally. Have you tried prayer? Do you pray daily? Do you use the ASK method? Ask, seek, knock and believe that he will answer your prayer?

God says that he makes peace, creates evil and does all these things in Isaiah 45:7 and again in Amos 3:6 he says, shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?

I have turned to the Wycliffe Bible Commentary for a breakdown of Isaiah 45:7—Jehovah is the Creator and Sustainer of the physical universe, and of the moral law as well. The evil he creates is the antithesis of peace. Since the opposite of peace is not sin or moral evil, it is obvious that physical evil, or calamitous consequences of wrongdoing are intended here. Nowhere does the Scripture ascribe to God the creation or authorship of sin; this originates from the free moral agency of created beings. As for Amos 3:6, Evil is not a reference to sin but to calamity and disaster.

As our Father, God has warned us of the harm that we do when we disobey him and the blessings that we receive when we obey him. Is it that hard? No, if we love him and wish to please our Father, then we want to obey his commandments, statutes and laws.

It is my hope that you understand Isaiah 45:7 and that you pray that this virus is contained, and a treatment is found. Is it possible? With all things with God is possible.

I do hope each of you reading this that you take this virus seriously and pray for our doctors, nurses, patients, first responders, scientists and those working on the cure who put their lives at stake to save our lives. If I left out anyone, then let us pray for all those who are working diligently in this time of distress.

No matter what country you are reading this, be assured that we are praying for you and your well being and that Luke 21:28 is your comforter—when these things begin to take place, stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

Fellow Christian, if you are terrified by what is happening in this world, be confident and know Christ’s return, and our hope is very soon, will bring justice and restoration to our people.

My next lesson will focus on the farmers, famine and land.

As I close, Romans 16:27 (KJV) to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever. Amen.

Jeff

About Us

Understanding

I think you will agree that if we were under God’s laws and not those of man that our world would be ideal. God has addressed every issue in his laws with a solution that makes sense and could and should be used by all. I have been studying numerous books on his laws with the KJV Bible being the center for knowledge and understanding for many years and wish to share my thoughts and welcome your thoughts…
