What happens when something is not made pure? The refiner simply turns up the heat to purge away more impurities... Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1194370
Revelation 16:9 - "...And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath Power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory...."
my god, you god is seriously criminally insane.
So people should be burned til they give him glory? He wants glory, and if he doesn't get it, he's going to torture them all, forever til they give up?
That doesn't sound very Jesus-like, so why do all Christians seem to nod in agreement with this?
Becuase they know the wrath of God, OP.
They know that The Christ fulfilled half
of the prophecy in Isaiah 61:2... They know we are in the year of the LORDs favor... But that prophecy is not yet complete.
There is a coming vengeance.
There is only one God, OP. And he has told us what he requires. That men trust His Son for salvation. But men love their sins more than God and more than life. So they do not come to Him, that they may have life. Why? Pride.... They simply do not want to set aside their lusts. They want their cake and eat it too. God does not play games.
Now God has told us this and also what shall be. There shall be life to those whom recieved the love of the truth, but there shall be vengeance and wrath to those who did not love truth, but took pleasure in unrighteousness.
But as these things come to pass, men will know it to be true, and they will still continue to be smart and proud, as men are tonight... and they will continue to blaspheme his name, as men do tonight.
And which God will men cry out to in that day? Who will deliver men from the wrath and the vengeance of God in that day?
May we both be found in Gods favor In that day and not in His vengeance.
