Malachi

As you can probably see this post is coming from Malachi.

1:1 The oracle of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi. [1]
The Lord's Love for Israel
2 “I have loved you,” says the Lord. But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau Jacob's brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet I have loved Jacob 3 but Esau I have hated. I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert.” 4 If Edom says, “We are shattered but we will rebuild the ruins,” the Lord of hosts says, “They may build, but I will tear down, and they will be called ‘the wicked country,’ and ‘the people with whom the Lord is angry forever.’” 5 Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say, “Great is the Lord beyond the border of Israel!”


From verse 2, you will see that how God has cared for them and let them live they think "Love" is more than that. It seems like that "Love" from God like that is fine. After all, we were sinning. If God had been just and good, then he should have killed us. And, it looks like from this, you should probably not act like these people did. And believe me, God will tear down lives if you get too proud. That is my message for today. I know it is not much at all. But I have been really buisy lately.

I love the word "oracle". I've worked on a story called "oracle" it's about a girl who can see the future in her dreams, and doesn't know what to do about it. I ended up scrapping the idea because it's too hard to give someone visions without getting into yucky blucky spirituality stuff.

Anyhoo, Malachi has a lot of cool stuff in it. Thanks for the scripture ben, I enjoyed it. God is always Just and Good ben, he never isn't. He can't be. It's impossible. So, people will always get what's coming to them, the only way is through Jesus. So i don't know if its quite accurate to say that "if God had been just".

Let me put it this way. that would happen if God was Soveriegn Just, but not loving and caring. God is the only thing you should probably be afraid of.
