The timeline concerning Satan’s fall seems to predate the creation of life on planet earth. Ezekiel 28:12-19. Another consideration, the scriptures that speak of the doom of Satan show that Satan is so insignificant to GOD that archangels are the ones who engage him in battle and win. Rev. 4.
For me, that is indication that what we consider evil is not a problem for GOD. That in fact evil is not a problem for us until with our will we choose it. What we seem to conclude is we should be able to freely choose our own way but if GOD is loving he should preempt the effect of such choices.
That kind of reasoning always landed a Preschooler in time out at my childcare home. I taught them to own their choices and the ramifications. I also taught them to own the solution. It was their job to make remedy for their bad choices. There was a price to be paid either way. Find out what would make the offended party okay, and love on them until they were whole again. GOD the offended, JESUS the remedy.
Honor and Glory to the bestest ever childcare director and solution, JESUS. At the bestest ever childcare home, planet earth!
