Evil Can Cause Us To Appreciate Good.

Take notice. When God allows evil to happen, it is for our benefit. It is so that we acknowledge the existence of evil. See, many want to deny the existence of evil to feel released from ever needing God.

Yet, God said:

” I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” (Isaiah 45:7)

“See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc” (Isaiah 54:16)

When God sent Jesus into a human body, it is so that we know Him and His Son.

We want to see good happens non-stop. Yet, in this ancient world, if that is case, people will be bored with good and curse the name of God at the highest point of their false sense of security. Yet, when evil happens it is to cause us to appreciate the good that we have long been cursing.

In the new world, a new order will have reigned. Evil will be bound for all eternity. And it will be day for all eternity, for all of us will know God.

“Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.””
‭‭(Revelation‬ ‭21:1-8‬)
