You have opened a whole barrel of worms, look out. :-?
Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Who put evil in the garden and who put the tree of life in the garden? God of course.
Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
They had to choose to do right to present themselves before God that they might who Him that He is right and love and worship Him.
This was not their nature, that is why they had to choose Whom they would serve.
When we believe in Christ, He is birthed in us and now we have a nature of God Himself in us by the Christ the is now our spirit, and our soul will be renewed by the Holy Spirit to the Mind of Christ that we now have. Evil is no longer present in our spirit because it is the Spirit of Christ, not Satan.
Jos 23:15 Therefore it shall come to pass, [that] as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
God used in the Old Testament to show Israel That He was God and controlled even their lives even in good and evil, if they would not obey.
Even in this He already knew they would not, because Christ was chosen to be in us even before the foundation of the World. Israel must seek God and repent and do His Will, that is why He gave the Law to Moses. We with Christ in us already have Christ Himself seeking the Father and we are learning to do the same and it will be some day complete in Christ, with us in our Father's House, where Christ is preparing us a place.
Jdg 2:15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed.
God uses evil for His own purpose to deal with His Creation as He Pleases. Jdg 9:23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:
Jdg 13:1 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.
Dealing evil for His purpose, even as we know God is a loving God. Tough Love is perfected in God and through Christ on the Cross for those that believe.
This was said to David because of what he did to Uriah the Hittite, Bathsheba's husband. 2Sa 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give [them] unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.
Again God uses evil for His purposes and in His choice and timing to bring forth His Will. That is why we work out our salvation with fear and trembling because God disciplines those He loves.
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Amos 3:6 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?
Job 2:10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
Last: Jeremiah 18:7-10 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
Our repentance is in Christ that is righteousness to us, we know what to repent of by the Christ in us through the Teacher, Comforter, The Holy Spirit. Praise God for His Evil, for it leads us to His righteousness and repentance.
1 Corinthians 1:30-31 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
In Christ: Phillip
