When we accuse the God of Israel of being the author of sin, we deny that He is in control of sin. His ways are far beyond anything we could imagine. The created cannot comprehend His thoughts or His ways, or perceive how He is the author of an act, without being chargeable with the evil of it. We must not fail to recognize the truth that sin is under His absolute control. The heavens are higher than the earth and His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours. He is in control of the winds and waves and the material sphere that surround us and the gravity that holds us to this planet, while other planets circulate around us. Everything is in His control, even the sin that circulates with-in and with-out planet Earth. The God of Israel is in control of sin, as much as He is of the moral judgment of sin.
He is righteous in His judgment of all His creation; all that He has created and all that exists. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, so will the words that come out of His mouth. His words do not go back to Him empty-handed. They’ll do the work He sent them to do, and they’ll complete the assignment that He gives them. We only glimpse a small portion of what the God of Israel is doing in our lives and in the lives of others.
Just as the words of the Holy Writings were written in the light of the Holy Spirit, we need to adhere to it’s truth by faith; in that same light, governing our lives accordingly. There is no searching of His understanding. We must at the very least, consider the Righteous Hand of the God of Israel upon our lives. We are far better off to trust in the Creator, the God of Israel, than we are in the ‘goo‘ that man face claims that we have evolved from. We can trust that He is who He declares Himself to be, The Great and Holy One, “I AM“.
