THE ACTS OF GOD
Our God is a Good God, what’s He does is always good not evil. If it is good, then it is God; and if it is evil, it is from the devil. The scripture even says every good and perfect gift is from the Lord (James1:17) and that all that the Lord made was good.
However there are some Bible verses that portray God as the perpetrator of evil, and I’ve seen so many people building on these verses to justify their saying that God allows evil to happen to people so as to teach them some lessons or to punish them of their sins.
Some of those passages are:
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?
2 Kings 15:5
And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house. And Jotham the king’s son was over the house, judging the people of the land.
There are some points you should note while dealing with these verses:
1. These verses and others were always drawn from the Old Testament.
2. The whole Bible was divided into 3 main dispensations:
I. The dispensation of Faith,
II. The dispensation of Law,
III. The dispensation of Grace.
3. All the scenarios mentioned were picked out from the dispensation of law and law states that if you do this, this is what will happen to you (Check Deuteronomy 27: 15-26 for the statements of law and 28:15-68 for the curses of law).
4. There was a “curse” placed on everyone who violated the law on earth during that dispensation, irrespective of whom they might be (Israelite or non- Israelite).
5. Whenever the law was violated by the Israelites, God would remove His shield on them and the devil would have access to treat them with evil.
6. Jesus came to put an end to the dispensation of law and brought the dispensation of Grace.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
7. But there are some people that fall sick after they commit a sin? Yes, they fall sick because they gave a legal ground to the devil by feeling guilt, condemnation, worry etc.
8. If you commit a sin as a believer, your sin is not thicker than the blood of Jesus.
1 John 2:1-2
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
If you believe this report can you confess, “MY GOD IS A GOOD GOD.”
