God allow the evil?
This is a subject that
will appeal to a lot of people. Many even come to the conclusion
that there can't be a God, because of the injustice and evil in
this imperfect world. In this chapter I will try ( after praying
and with JEHWAH's help ) to give a Biblical answer to that

at least tree reasons for allowing the evil temporary
To get a good picture of
the present situation, I want to go far back in time.
First JEHWAH God was
alone. Then he created his firstborn, namely Jesjoewa ( Jesus ) (
like Colossians 1 verse 15 explains ), and millions of Angels (
Revelation 5 verse 11 - 200 million faithful Angels ). Afterwards
came the material creation with 200 milliard ( Am. 200 billion )
stars in our star system the Milky Way, and then there are 200
milliard starsystems ( according to the latest estimates ). And
also the Earth of course, with abundant plants, animals and
However even Angels as
people are created with a free will, they have the ability to
make a free choice. They are even as God himself no robots.
That's why JEHWAH decided to try the first people with a simple
test on their loyalty. One tree was from God; the rest was for
the people ( Genesis 2:16+17 ). Though JEHWAH God made everything
very well, a lapsed Angel ( Satan, 2 Corinthians 11:14 ) (
Revelation 12:4+9 - eventually one third part of the Angels )
decided, even as the first people, not to look up towards JEHWAH,
but to show contempt ( disrespect ).
JEHWAH could have killed
them immediately, and create new people, but that wouldn't have
answered the question if we need JEHWAH and his rules. Imagine
that millions of Angels watched the scene. God wanted to give the
situation time ( about 6.000 years ), to see who would serve him
out of a free will. Also became clear what there would become
from without JEHWAH, and got clear if we need JEHWAH and his
rules or not. JEHWAH didn't take up the position of a murdering
dictator. So got clear which Angels choose for God and which for
Satan who riased the revolt. Also could the offspring of the
first people ( even as we can ) make a free choise.
The story of the man that
sowed good seed and the enemy that sowed tares among the wheat is
here a good example of ( Matthew 13:24-30 and Matthew 13:36-43 ).
The advice was: Let both grow together until the harvest and burn
the tares then. So it will soon go with those who choose for the
evil, they will be destroyed.

reason for the temporary allowing of the evil
we can find
in the Bible book Job
First it's going good with
Job, he is a God fearing and good person. But Satan say's that
Job is only serving JEHWAH as long as it goes well with him.
Satan even claims that the upright Job will curse JEHWAH if he is
tried. "He will curse thee to thy face" feignst Satan (
Job 1:11 ).
God doesn't tried Job, but
he gives Satan permission to provide an answer to the question if
Job would stay loyal while being tried. Only may Satan do Job
himself nothing. Satan goes until the extreme: Sabeans and
Chaldeans stole his oxen, asses, camels and killed almost all his
servants. One servant even mentions Job: "Fire of God is
fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the
servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell
you." Also his children were killed by a great wind that
collapsed the house were they where.
Job though didn't curse
God ( Job 1:21 ).
But did Job have a perfect
idea of God?
No, Job thought that the
evil came from God ( Job 1:21 ). He said i.a.: "JEHWAH gave,
and JEHWAH has taken away; blessed be the name of JEHWAH."
With this he gave well an answer to the question if he only
served JEHWAH as long as it did go good with him.
However embittered went
Satan back to JEHWAH and feigned that Job would curse JEHWAH if
he would be touched until inside his bone and inside his flesh.
Once more JEHWAH gave Satan permission to get an answer to the
question if Job would stay loyal when tried. Satan smote the
unknowing Job with sore boils.
Job even got depressive (
Job 3:3+4 ). He says i.a.: ®Let the day perish where in I was
Also sends Satan false
friends towards Job. They say i.a.: ®Remember please, who ever
perished, being innocent? Or where were the righteous ever cut
off?" and "By the breath of God they perish® ( Job
4:7+9 ). They say things that people still claim about God if you
talk with them. Like the claim that severe sickness would be a
punishment of God, and that God would want people to be starved
and killed. God wanted it that way, they claim.
time and chance happen to them all.
The answer of
Jesjoewa ( Jesus ):
eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell,
that they were sinners
men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
I tell you,
all likewise perish.®
So reality is different.
Sickness, starvation and death we owe to Satan, and the wrong
choice of Adam and Eve. And also the present political powers,
that prefer war and accusing God more than ease the misery. And
also time and chance play a role.

that we are of God,
but the whole world lies the power of
the lawless one.
1 John 5:19
But know this, that it is
not the guilt of JEHWAH, and that it is hurting Him very much. He
will ( very probably ) in 2019 or 2020 ( for the calculation see:
in 2019? ) end
these repulsive situations ( DaniŽl 12, Matthew 24,
1Thessalonians 5:3, 2Timothy 3, Revelation 11:18 ). Additionally
will He compensate his loyals in thousands for everything they do
for him now.
