God loves us, brothers and sisters. He truly does. Think of what he does for you. All the blessings he piles upon you. He blesses you daily, doesn’t he? He answers your prayers? True Christians like you and I experience miracles in our daily lives. God aids us day to day and helps us overcome sin and difficult situations.
God healed me!
God got me that job.
He helped me pass that examination.
He helped us win!
He gave me strength!
He helped me overcome that difficulty!
God is always working for us, doing things for us. He proves himself to us EACH AND EVERY DAY! HALLELUJAAAAAAH! Do I hear an AMEN brothers and sisters? Of course I do! We KNOW that Jesus is real because he proves it to us each and every day. PRAISE THE LOOORRRRRD!
So there God is, doing all these wonderful things for us TRUE Christians, jumping through hoops, answering prayers, dishing out blessings left right and centre, but what happens to you, the nonbeliever who wants proof that God exists? You want to test something out in a way that proves once and for all whether God is real or not? You get NOTHING! ZIP!
Perhaps he hates you?
Whoa! Wait just there, Pastor Jake! God hates? No he doesn’t, he does not hate, he’s a God of love! At least that’s what I bet many of you are saying out there, brothers and sisters, but there are numerous times in the bible where God says he hates. Here are just a list of some of them.
And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Proverbs 6:16, 19
These six things doth the LORD hate ... A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings.
And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the
LORD your God detests anyone who does this.
Notice that it’s not the sin that God hates, it’s the people BECAUSE of their sins. Yes, I hate to break this to you, my brothers and sisters, but God does most definitely hate people. In fact he hates the majority of his creations. Only the few he will love and give eternal life. The few like myself, and you, brothers and sisters.
That is why God will only give a few of us the time of day. He will perform miracles and do things for us daily. The rest he will do nothing for. He will make no effort whatsoever to prove even his existence to you, let alone his love.
I’ve heard it before, my brothers and sisters. The excuses…. “Oh no, God is not a cosmic errand boy”, “God will not be tested!”, “Don’t expect God to jump through hoops for you.”
But are we being honest here? Is it really for those reasons? Of course it isn’t brothers and sisters. God will jump through hoops for we Christians. He will be our cosmic errand boy. He will prove his existence to us daily and he DOES! So if he will do it for us, why will he not do it for our unbelieving brothers and sisters?
There is only one possible explanation. He hates them. After all if a wall is up between him and them, he could easily knock that wall down as he’s God. So it’s the only logical explanation we have left. He hates them and does not wish to knock that wall down. He hates them ALL! He does NOT want to do anything for them. And let’s face it… they are worthy of his hate, aren’t they, my brothers and sisters? That is why one day they will all burn in the fiery pits of Hell! HALLELUJAH!!!!
