And that ,ladies and gentlemen, is a kaboom statement.I believe what His Word says -in His holy God says He hates some- my believing different would have no impact on that reality- selah.
:amen: Freedom07 :amen:As InHisLove pointed out, God is no respector of persons and He does love all, but I do believe He has shown favor with some over others. This may be due to the fact that He, (God) knows the heart and He has a special assignment for their life. Example..... Moses, Noah, Adam.... etc..etc and there may be some today. But, remember we were back then and still today are all sinners and He still loves us. He may hurt when we turn from Him, but this does not mean that He loves us any less. These are my thoughts (also a sinner) so take from it what you will.
when God looks at "favor" with someone you can look in different translations and find many other words inplaceIt's not very important, but there are many passages throughout the Bible that speak of "Favor".
This below was spoken by YHVH
Leviticus 26:9 NIV
9 " 'I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you.
