Just same way GOD hates the sin in the sinner, is same way He loves the sinner. The only way He can destroy the sin without destroying the sinner; separates the sinner from the sin…is through the cross; by sending His Son to shed His blood for us.
Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
P.S: If you put a sword into the ground, it looks like a cross. “The Sword” separates the sinner from the sin; cuts the sin away… And this can only be done if it’s permitted to by the sinner. i.e, The Sword will only work when permitted. He is knocking… You sure you haven’t closed the door back in His face? #food for thought#
Rev 13:10 “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
Revelation 2:16 “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”
N.B: Bible knowledge is nothing if one doesn’t have a heart for Jesus.
