For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. Hebrews 2:18 KJV
OPENING OPINION by Robert
The following comment was brought to me. “If God hates sin then He must hate those who are sinners”. My answer goes as follows, God does hate sin however he loves all those he “created.” You need to separate the man from his actions and in doing so you will recognize that we all live under God’s grace. And because we do live under God’s grace right up to the moment of our passing from this life into the next life, to which eternal destination will be determined by our choice as one of God’s sons.
The following possibly will ruffle a great number of feathers like the older brother’s were ruffled (Luke 23:40 – 43). Knowing we live under, Grace, right to our final moments, means one may just moments before passing if they sincerely declare Yeshua as their Saviour and Repent their sinful nature (Luke 23:40 – 43). They like the thief being crucified with Yeshua who recognized Yeshua had done nothing deserving crucifixion was with our Lord that day, Luke 23:43.
What comes to mind is the parable Luke 15:4-7 KJV. What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost until he finds it?
 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
 I say unto you, that likewise, joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
What we hear from the older brother of the Prodigal son is what many might be claiming within the assembly explained in Luke 15:30 -32. But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf
31And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have are thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this, thy brother was dead, and is alive again and was lost, and is found.
Thus, the question, “If God hates sin then He must hate those who are sinners”. We have the best answer to the question, the parable of the prodigal son, Luke 15:11 – 32, to show how pleasing to God the conversion of sinners is, of great sinners, and how ready he is to receive and entertain such, upon their repentance.
The importance of this answer comes because of the previous article published July 5th, 2020, https://romboughrobert.wordpress.com/2020/07/06/the-delay-creates-a-choice/
We know many, will choose erroneously and unlike the prodigal son not know how to return to the Father. There are two factors in this article as we have been warned of what is to come, getting our house in order and going into the Den of Wolves looking for that one stray to find and return to the flock.
Become’s the priorities for Yeshua’s modern-day disciples to be obedient. Brothers and Sister’s fill your lanterns with oil have a reserve on hand to shine your light into the darkness, cast your nets into deep waters, do all you can to find the strays before the next malady becomes real. This malady will have no mercy for strays, half-truth followers, those who oppose God’s appointed, and Gentiles. I warn all thinking you have enough in knowing God, it will fall short, deepen your relationship with Yeshua (Jesus) our faith is going to be tested to a depth we have never seen before, being shallow will not be sufficient.
When you have faith and courage of an obedient [child of God] to lead in Yeshua’s name, without fear, many will follow your light.
Again please remember this is just a humble servant doing the bidding of Yeshua (Jesus). I pray for a safe journey forward. A walk-in God’s love and peace, and may the “SHARING OF YOUR LIGHT” in the Den of wolves be fruitful, remember, He is always with you if you hold His love in your heart forever.
If you lead they will follow your light, bless the Lord for simplicity.
