The marvelous, Wonderful Love of God vs. His Horrendous, Terrifying Wrath

The Father...

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

John 3:16

"He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

John 3:36

"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love."

John 15:10

"And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire."

Revelation 20:15

Under His Love

John 3:16...

For God so loved all the whosoevers in the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, so any whosoevers who choose to:

  1. believe in Him,
  2. obey Him,
  3. love Him,
  4. keep His commandments in the New Testament,
  5. keep His Father's commandments in the Old Testament,
  6. be faithful until death,

should not perish. His sins will be forgiven... will receive a crown of life and will have everlasting life.

Under His Wrath

John 3:16...

And any whosoever who chooses:

  1. not to believe in Him,
  2. not to obey Him,
  3. not to love Him,
  4. not to keep His commandments in the New Testament,
  5. not to keep His Father's commandments in the Old Testament,
  6. not to be faithful unil death,

shall not be forgiven. He shall see God's wrath... his name shall not be found in the book of life... will not receive the crown of life and will be cast into the lake of fire.

Is The Love of God Conditional or Unconditional?

God says...

"I love them who love me."

Proverbs 8:17

"I hate them for the wickedness of their doings, I will love them no more."

Hosea 9:15

Is The Wrath of God Conditional or Unconditional?

God says...

"I set before you today a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you...
"and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you...

Deuteronomy 11:26-28

Does God Hate?

"I hated them. Because of the evil of their deeds I will drive them from My house; I will love them no more."

God, Hosea 9:15

"These... things does the Lord hate:
  • A proud look,
  • A lying tongue,
  • Hands that shed innocent blood,
  • A heart that devises wicked plans,
  • Feet... running to evil,
  • A false witness who speaks lies,
  • And one who sows discord among brethren."

Proverbs 6:16-19

Does God kill?

God says...

"if you will not...love, respect, and obey the Lord... you will be destroyed." (killed)

Deuteronomy 28:58-63

"And The Lord said to Moses, take all the leaders of the people, and hang them up... against the sun..."

Numbers 25:4

"and The Lord sent fiery serpents.... and many people died."

Numbers 21:6

"all the sinners... will die by the sword."

Amos 9:10

Do you believe...

...that if the love of God and the love of Jesus are unconditional, Jesus died on the cross in vain?

 

...that Paul, not knowing of such "unconditional love," wasted his time and effor by writting the qualifying list to enter into the :Lake of Fire"? (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Galatians 5:19-21)

 

...that it makes no sense for God not to open the gates of heaven and let them all, Paul's two lists of the saved and the unsaved ones, get in?

 

...that if Jesus' love is "unconditional" why does He pray, "Father... I pray not for the world... but for them who believe in me...? (John 17:8-9)
