Happy Father’s Day to the ONLY Good & Perfect Father of Heavenly Lights!
Yes, if something is not good and not perfect. that part is NOT from the ‘Father of Heavenly Lights’ and vice versa as James 1:17 implies (Can we see it? verse in image).
Where does evil come from?
From ‘us’ and ‘others in the World (i.e. other creation) EXCLUDING God Alone’ as it is Written in Verses below (whether we believe it or not, that’s the ONLY Scriptural Truth):
” Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.” – apostle James (James 1:13 – 16, NASB)
Yes, ‘let us not be deceived otherwise’ as warned in the last verse quoted above regarding this topic.
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.” (1 John 2:16, NASB)
“For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with You.” (Psalm 5:4, NASB)
God the Father is the Best Father of ALL though the World does NOT know it. He doesn’t reveal it easily because He Hides the Best about Him being Humble.
“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.” – apostle John (1 John 1:5, NASB)
“He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.” – apostle John (John 1:10, ESV)
That’s Why He Alone can Save the World:
“We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.” – apostle John (1 John 4:14, NASB)
“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:48, NASB)
It’s not another God but He Himself is the One:
“I and the Father are One.” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:30, NASB)
He is that One True God:
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” (John 14:7 – 9, NASB)
Let us not be ‘confused’ like ‘Philip’.
P/S: For more details regarding this ‘Undying Truth’, please consider the write-up below for edification:
Here’s a Post Regarding Details with the ‘common Q & A’ or FAQ about this too, explained in detail with ‘verses’:
The ‘eyes of Angels’ can Recognize Him:
(yes, ‘seen by angels’ in Verse below, don’t you know that even the demons recognized Him in the Gospels?), Verses:
“And without controversy Great is the Mystery of Godliness: God was Manifest in the Flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into Glory..” (1 Timothy 3:16, KJV)
“And they [the evil spirits] cried out, saying, “What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” (Matthew 8:29, NASB)
“You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.” (James 2:19, NASB)
The evil spirits have ‘one weakness’ in that ‘they cannot confess that Jesus Christ has come in the Flesh’ & believe it or not, I have personally ‘tested’ this Verse on them & saw the Truth of this, ‘they could NOT confess it even in pretense, NO, NOT AT ALL’. I was shocked too. This verse is NOT talking about ‘humans who can make a pretense in confession too but spirits, yes, literally spirits; even angels are spirits (Hebrews 1:14)’.
“By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the Flesh is from God;
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” (1 John 4:2 – 3, KJV)
