A) INTRODUCTION

 

 

In the entirety of the Moon god’s book, the “Qur’an,” Muslins cannot produce the word in their scriptures, “Love.”

 

Some people struggle with the idea of a Loving God Who has any, or better, non-loving wrath.  However, we can be assured that it is precisely because of His Love that this wrath even exists.  Let me explain.

 

 

B) GOD IS LOVE

 

 

The largest and most prominent complaint for the God of the Bible demonstrating non-Loving acts, is when He destroyed entire Nations by the hand of Israel.  Such as in Exodus 23:23:  “For Mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.”  However, is there a reason a Loving God would/should “cut them off?”  Indeed!  It is given to us in Genesis 15:16:  “But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again:  for the iniquity {SINFULNESS} of the Amorites is not yet full.”  Only a Loving God would even give them a long probation period in order to change their ways.

 

What complainers fail to mention, or not know of, is that these Nations were worshiping false gods and having intercourse with animals; thus producing horrible diseases that God did not want His people Israel to get infected with.  Along with homosexuality and its diseases and the reason for the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 18:20).

 

Loving parents discipline their child.  Therefore, why would you expect a Loving God, Who Loves the world, not to have wrath against sin (unrighteousness)?  Were He indifferent to it (us), He would not even care about what happens to us.  Look around the world and see what sin has done to His creation.  How could God not be wrathful against such evil and devastation?

 

There are many verses that state that God is Loving, the main ones being First John 4:8 & 16:  “God is Love.”  And something I learned early on in my Christian walk when not necessarily understanding the actions of God’s Love was to ask the question:  “Is that how Love operates?”  If it is not, then it is not of God.

 

Another verse to consider is Jeremiah 31:3:  “Yea, I have Loved thee with an everlasting Love:  therefore with Lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”  Let’s face it, Love is the true cure for this world, and for that matter, the entire cosmos.  Whereas sin only disrupts and seeks to destroy.  Therefore, a Loving God must destroy sin (have wrath against it).

 

You may have herd the saying, “God hates the sin, but not the sinner.”  This is true Love for mankind, and true wrath for the sin in mankind.  For God to destroy man is, as Isaiah 28:21 puts it:  “For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, He shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that He may do His work, His strange work; and bring to pass His act, His strange act.”  In other words, this is not something He wants to do or takes pleasure in doing.

 

In considering the Heavenly (or earthly; which is a pattern of the Heavenly; Heb. 8:5) Sanctuary, It has two compartments; the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.  In the Most Holy Place is the “Ark of the Covenant,” which contains the Ten Commandments.  Above this Ark is the “Mercy Seat,” demonstrating the mercy of our God for the breaking of His Commandments.  This is where our God sits.

 

Now let me ask you a question.  Was Satan kicked out of Heaven because he broke the Ten Commandments?  If you answered “Yes,” your God is not merciful.  Consider, when you sin are you condemned to die with no chance of repentance?  I hope you answered “No.”  Therefore, Satan was not kicked out of Heaven because he broke the Ten Commandments.  He was kicked out of Heaven because he refused to accept the “mercy” offered to him.
