Beyond Hell and Anger

Simple “Conclusion” verses which relate to the “ends”, this one referring to the ‘end of man’ (in picture):

Eventually, the “same all” will be “made alive”;

Comment:

‘But doesn’t God hate both the sinner (workers of iniquity) together with their sins?’ Yes, as it is written:

“The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity.” (Psalm 5:5)

but His Hate is “never” mentioned in the Bible to ‘last forever’ (time period); In fact, the opposite is clearly mentioned, namely His Hate is ‘not’ even to the “age” (nor forever, always).

Consider the ‘clear, general verses below’:

*His Hate is temporal but His Love never ends:

“For, not to the age do I strive, nor for ever am I wroth, For the spirit from before Me is feeble, And the souls I have made.” (Isaiah 57:16, YLT)

“For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.” (Isaiah 57:16, KJV)

“For I will not accuse you forever, and I will not always be angry; for then the spirit would grow weak before Me, even the breath of man, which I have made.” (Isaiah 57:16, HCSB)

Or even this verse:

“He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.” (Psalm 103:9, NASB)

“He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever.” (Psalm 103:9, KJV)

“Not for ever doth He strive, Nor to the age doth He watch.” (Psalm 103:9, YLT)

And even these set of verses all imply the same meaning:

“4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.” (Psalm 85:4 – 7, KJV)

Again, more accurately (“literally”):

“4Turn back [to] us, O God of our salvation, And make void Thine anger with us.

5To the age art Thou angry against us? Dost Thou draw out Thine anger To generation and generation?

6Dost Thou not turn back? Thou revivest us, And Thy people do rejoice in Thee.

7Show us, O Jehovah, thy kindness, And Thy salvation Thou dost give to us.” (Psalm 85:4 – 7, YLT)

Even this:

“Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.” (Micah 7:18, KJV)

“Who is a God like Thee? taking away iniquity, And passing by the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance, He hath not retained for ever His anger, Because He — He delighteth in kindness.” (Micah 7:18, YLT)

In other words, the verses clearly mentions that God becomes angry with sin and the sinner but ‘not’ forever as so commonly misunderstood with “no” Verse ever stating that “His anger is forever”. In fact, as the verses above state, “His anger is temporal” because “He is God & He is Merciful”.
