Did YHVH Create Evil ?

  If you're thinking, "How could a GOD, that creates evil, expect me to be perfect?" Then you haven't learned a thing from the previous four pages; start over, because The Eternal Creator has never expected any of us to be perfect! YHVH expects the few that He chooses to Seek Perfection, and to ultimately ascend
(climb up) out of imperfection into perfection.

  If you're thinking, "There is no way I could ever become perfect or perfected", then go back and start over, because YHVH's concept of perfection is based on Intent and not event ! And the only thing necessary for Spiritual understanding is to switch from a human "Event Based" focused concept of perfection to a Spiritual "Intent Based" focused concept of perfection. Mankind can thank all of the false religions of this world for the truly evil " Event " focused concept of perfection.

How dare anyone accuse "The Eternal Father"
creating evil or being evil!

  In today's' societies most people, when presented with an answer to a question that has more than one possibility, will automatically assume the simplest and most direct possibility. Why? Human Nature
(The Nature of "SELF-indulgence") is unfortunately inherently lazy. When I was teaching High School, I actually got some amusingly honest answers from some of my students, when they were pressed as to why they didn't make the effort necessary to accomplish even some of the simplest tasks. Their answer was invariably, "It makes my brain hurt." To which I would often say, "No pain no gain." This seemed to at least motivate some of "The Jocks." And while "No pain no gain" may have motivated a few High School students, YHVH expects HIS CHILDREN to be motivated by a Spirit of Love. So why don't we refer that Spirit of Love as a "Holy Spirit"? Afterall, that is exactly what YHVH's "Holy Spirit" is !

  Now I know that most of you that are reading this will already know that our Creator YHVH is A GOD of LOVE
(not lust). So how is it that The Almighty EL of Love can create evil? At this point I almost always have to remind my readers that in the Real World and Spiritual World things are NOT always Literal or Obvious. Why? Because YHVH does NOT judge our outward appearance or actions, but the hidden and real "Intent of Our Hearts" (Hebrews 4:12) . Therefore, when we begin looking into the real answer to this question, we too must look at "The Intent of YHVH's Heart" (Holy Spirit of Love) . So let's examine some Bible verses and check out a key word or two in our Concordances and Lexicons.

Isaiah 45:5-7
I am Yehovah (YHVH), and there is none else, there is no Elohiym
(God or Children Of God) beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is no one other than me. I am YHVH, and there is no one else.
7 I
(alone) form the light, and create darkness: I (alone) make peace, and create evil: I YHVH do all these things (alone).

Note: In the above pagan literally translated verses, "Create" (H1254) bara (baw-raw') means means as a formative PROCESS. Therefore, this was not an instantaneous mental attitude or personality trait instilled into angels or people OR even Satan (metaphorical source of Human Nature), BUT a Spiritual (mental) Attitude that developed OR formed after a period of time (maybe even millions of years). I say "Mental" because evil is a mental "spiritual Intent" that is a "SELF-serving" (spirit of error) versus a Righteousness Seeking Spiritual Intent that is "YHVH Serving" (Good and Holy Spirit of Truth and Loving Obedience).

So here we see that Scripture apparently or literally says that YHVH
(Yehovah) created evil, AND on the surface it appears to very clearly state this as a literal fact, BUT as we shall see, there are TWO different ways to "Create Evil." The simplest way (and the most assumed answer) is that He literally created evil as evil in a "One Step" process right from the very start. Well, that is just simply NOT the Truth, AND this is probably the answer that Satan (Human Nature) would prefer that people believe. Why? Because this would let Satan (and mankind) "Off The Legal Hook" so to speak, because IF this were true (it is not true), then Satan (through mankind) could accuse "THE FATHER" (YHVH) of unfair persecution. Satan (through mankind) could say that we had no choice but to be evil, because YHVH made us this way. Yahveh would never allow this error in judgment to occur, as YHVH is OMNISCIENT (All Knowing). Satan (Source of vain Human Nature) is "The spiritual source" of deception (human nature), the suppressor of truth, the deceiver of the Whole Entire World, AND until "Iniquity" was found in it/him (figuratively speaking), evil only existed "In Theory," because there was no identifiable evil in YHVH's Kingdom prior to that point in time. This makes Satan (Human Nature) the Source of Unrighteousness (human nature) "In Theory" (but not in reality). Therefore, Satan is the key to unlock the answer to this question, that has apparently been argued for millenniums. However, I must say to the defense of this message, that those that have been outwardly arguing this question to prove that YHVH created evil "As Evil," these people will never come to the knowledge of The Truth even if they argue and search for an eternity. Why? Because ONLY YHVH's Righteous (Holy) Spirit will reveal that Truth to you today in this message, IF you are a first time reader and a believer in the Omniscience of YHVH and the Power of His Love. But first a few supporting verses:

1John 4:6 We are of YHVH: he that knows YHVH hears us; he that is not of YHVH hears not us. By this know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

John 14:17 Even the (Holy) Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it [the world]sees it not, neither understands it: but ye (The Chosen Few) know it; for it (YHVH's Holy Spirit or Mindset) dwells within you, and shall be in[side] you.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter (Holy Spirit or Righteous Mind set of YHVH) is come (and alters or renews your mind to become Righteousness Seeking), whom I (Messiah) will send (reveal) unto you from the Father (by my Righteous example), even the Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit), which proceeds (is extended to you) from the Father (YHVH's Holy and Righteous Mind set) , (it) shall testify of (reveal) me (that I did not lie):

John 16:13 Howbeit when, the Spirit of truth, is come (and alters your mental character or Spirit), it (this Holy Spirit of Love) will guide you into all truth: .......

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father SEEKS such to worship him.

John 4:24 YHVH is Spirit: and they that worship YHVH must worship Him in (both) Spirit and in Truth.

Hebrews 4:12-13 For the word of YHVH is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do

Now concerning Satan
(Human Nature), was it (Human Nature) always evil? Certainly not!
This is evidenced by the following verses that explain this in two ways. First Satan's (Human Nature's) original attribute was that of LUCIFER, which means "Messenger of Righteousness" (Angel of Light). LUCIFER (a metaphor for a particular attribute of Satan) was not only GOOD and PERFECT through innocence in all its ways, but had the Supreme position of power in YHVH's Kingdom. A Righteous Kingdom that had NO EVIL in it at all. Therefore "Unrighteousness" was still a non-event at that point "In Time". So firstly Lucifer ( Innocent Human Nature ) had a sudden name (reputation) change, AND secondly, Scripture states this was due to an actual (jealous) event.

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground (Earth), which did weaken the nations!

Luke 10:18 (This event actually occurred in Genesis when Adam and Eve symbolically partook of "The Knowledge of the Tree or Source of Good and Evil, and Satan [Human Nature] was symbolically cast to the surface of The Earth in the same manner as a snake to crawl on its belly in the dust).
18 And he
(Messiah) said unto them, I beheld (in a vision)(Strong's G#2334, Discerned, acknowledged, perceived. Does NOT mean "I Literally Saw.") Satan (metaphor for Source of Human Nature) as lightning fall from heaven (human nature was created).

Ezekiel 28:14-17 You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so: you were upon the Holy mountain of YHVH; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 You
were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you

Note: This occurred at a very definite point "In Time." A point that historically (Scriptural History) separates the period of time (when Lucifer and all that resided in YHVH's Kingdom were perfect in righteousness according to "The Letter" of the Law) from the present sinful period we now live in. At that "Point In Time" when human nature became sinful or SELF-Centered ( Satan became the author of sin or human nature) AND sin was no longer just theory. Therefore "Sin," "SELF," "Human Nature," AND "Satan" are virtually synonymous ("As One").

16 By the multitude of your merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and you have sinned (human nature stopped focusing on YHVH, and focused on SELF): therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of YHVH: and I will destroy you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I will cast you to the ground
(like lightning strikes the Earth), I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you.

Now we can see the problem
(that most have) in understanding the creation of evil. Satan is virtually synonymous with evil, AND SO, since YHVH created Lucifer (as a Messenger [Angel] of Righteousness [Light]) then YHVH must have created evil; Right? Wrong! Why? Because that is only a half truth, actually YHVH created Lucifer (Righteous Human Nature) as a "Perfect" or Righteous" (in his ways) cherub. Adam and Eve's nature (Human Nature that resided within the first intelligent humans) was NOT created evil; Self-centered Human Nature (Satan) evolved; Man(kind) chose to rebel against YHVH (become Self-centered versus YHVH centered) of mankind's OWN "Freewill."

Therefore, YHVH did NOT create evil as evil, YHVH created
(Righteous Human Nature) as Good (Lucifer), AND it is our Sacred duty as YHVH's ministers to make that distinction known whenever, a conflict arises in the understanding of this issue. It does not matter that the ALL KNOWING (Omniscient) YHVH knew that evil would evolve. What matters is that He neither forced the angels (messengers) nor did He force mankind to become evil. YHVH has NEVER desired for mankind or His angels to become evil! To allow someone to assume that YHVH created evil as evil is a heinous evil within itself, and a dishonor to the Holy and Righteous name (reputation) of YHVH.

However, Remember this, Evil can, also,serve Good
(YHVH's Purpose), but Good never serves Evil ! As for Satan itself, "It" is an allegory or metaphor for a symbolic "Freewill Source"  of Unrighteousness", which is made manifest in "Human Nature."

One last thought. Did you ever stop to think that it is impossible to create (define) Good without, also, defining Evil.  Why ? Because without Evil no one would know what Good is; and without Good no one would know what Evil is.
