and thank goodness for that for if that weren’t the case we would all be stuffed and I would ever so reluctantly be getting shoved to the front of the queue by a giant hand reaching out of the clouds , but the idea that everything that GOD does stems from his essence which is love should naturally lead one to question just what is love ?
you could at this point quote the obvious ‘‘love is patient love is kind …’’ ect and to be sure love most certainly is those things that should go without saying but I would like to suggest it is those things in the eternal sense [for the here and now! ]
but I would like to throw a spanner in the works at this point and suggest love is so much more depending on the context in fact some may find the following shall we say awkward to say the least !
‘‘you brood of vipers’’ ,a harsh statement indeed ! , doesn’t sound very loving to those who have sentimental ears perhaps !
or the even more painful
‘‘but these enemies of mine who did not want me to reign over them bring them here and slay them in my presence’’
remember everything GOD does is bore out of his love !
or ,’‘so he made a whip out of cords and drove them out of the temple’’
or ,’‘the Lord is a warrior , the Lord is his name’’
or ,’’ know therefore today that it is the Lord your GOD who is crossing over before you as a consuming fire . he will destroy them and he will subdue them before you so that you may drive them out and destroy them quickly’’
goodness the list is almost endless but an embrace of universal reconciliation goes at least some of the way to resolving this seeming dilemma
