The last several chapters of Isaiah have focused on how wonderful God is and how the Israelites will be saved if they truly believe in God. Yet God refuses to show himself. He’s not interested in making it clear he exists, probably because he was created by man.
“I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.” – Isaiah 45:2-3
Or just skip all of that and show yourself. That’s all it would take and EVERYONE would believe in God with no doubt at all.
“I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.” – Isaiah 45:7
Too many Christians don’t read their holy book and therefore will argue that God did not bring evil into the world. Yes he did. The Bible makes this very clear in Isaiah 45:7. How can God be good if he intentionally brought evil into the world to harm you?
“It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.” – Isaiah 45:12
All God has to do is show himself.
“But Israel will be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation; you will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting.” – Isaiah 45:17
Israel, the most peaceful land on all of the Earth said NO ONE EVER!!!
“I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness” – Isaiah 45:19
Well that’s a lie because God never shows himself to the people in the Bible.
To conclude this chapter, God brought evil into this world and he lies by saying he has shown himself when he hasn’t. A god who brings evil into the world should never be trusted to tell the truth.
