The world has cycles of good and bad?

( 21 ) Ge 41:3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river , ill "ra`" favoured and leanfleshed ; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river .

.. them out of the river bad .. Notice the cycles of good and bad, of function and dysfunction Seven good years, seven bad years. Why does this cycle occur ? I don't know, the Bible does not say. Since the tree of good and bad originally grew in the Garden of Eden, this follows than that pure bad or pure evil does not exist on it's own, so in order for GOD to allow Satan his choice for bad, it follows than a cycle of good and bad must occur, first the good things flow to keep life alive, than the bad things flow Satan's way and thus bring death. If Satan had his way all life on planet earth would cease to exist and speedily too I might say...He hates GOD and life comes from GOD...

Another issue is the moral value of good and bad. How does one know dark only because one knows light. How does one know cold only because one knows heat. How does one know wrong because one knows right.

Another concept is the contrast of good and bad. We know God is good because we experience bad. God is light. Yet too much pure light blinds us, and we can't see. So we need lesser light or some darkness in order to experience the presence of GOD without His brightness killing our eyes.

The same goes for any quality of GOD. In our world of bad and dysfunction, too much of GOD makes us tremble and fall weak and helpless. We have to have lesser amounts of God's power in order to sustain ourselves in His presence.

When Jesus came to earth, His divinity was encapsulated inside his humanity, so the brightness of his powers would not destroy those around Him. The Bible says it this way

Heb 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

Only on one accasion did Jesus allow His divinity to flash forth from his humanity, on the mountain for humans to see.

Mt 17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

( 27 ) Ge 44:4 And when they were gone out of the city , and not yet far off , Joseph said unto his steward , Up , follow after the men ; and when thou dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil "ra`" for good ?

.. them, Wherefore have ye rewarded bad ..

( 28 ) Ge 44:29 And if ye take this also from me , and mischief befall him , ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow "ra`" to the grave .

( 29 ) Ge 44:34 For how shall I go up to my father , and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil "ra`" that shall come on my father . {come...: Heb. find my father}

( 30 ) Ge 47:9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh , The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years : few and evil "ra`" have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage .

.. few and bad ..
