hellifiknowbro: Why?

Daniel: To show His wrath. (Romans 9:22ii)

Daniel: There are no good people, (Psalm 53:3iii) but those who have Christ are tested. (Revelation 2:10iv)

  1. Isaiah 45:
    7 I form the light and create darkness,
    I make peace and create calamity;
    I, the Lord, do all these things.’

  2. Romans 9:
    22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,

  3. Psalm 53:
    3 Every one of them has turned aside;
    They have together become corrupt;
    There is none who does good,
    No, not one.

  4. Revelation 2:
    10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

    The whole duality thing. Good and evil existing together in the human experience. Pretty deep stuff.
