Example seen in verses below:
“But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my SALVATION.
My God will hear me.
Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.
Though I FALL I will RISE;
Though I dwell in DARKNESS, the LORD is a light for me.
I will BEAR the INDIGNATION of the LORD
Because I have SINNED against Him,
UNTIL He pleads my case and executes justice for me.
He WILL bring me out to the light,
And I will see His Righteousness.” (Micah 7:7 – 9)
“Who is a God like You, who PARDONS iniquity
And PASSES OVER the rebellious act of the remnant of His possession?
He does NOT retain His ANGER FOREVER,
Because He delights in UNCHANGING LOVE.
He WILL AGAIN have COMPASSION on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, You will cast ALL THEIR SINS
Into the depths of the sea.
You will give TRUTH to Jacob
And UNCHANGING LOVE to Abraham,
Which You SWORE to our forefathers
From the days of old.” (Micah 7:18 – 20)
Why can’t He have an “Anger that lasts FOREVER”?
Due His Beautiful “Unchanging Love” (Micah 7:18) & He ‘doesn’t change’ as “it is written”:
“For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6)
What is this “Unchanging Love” which God gave to Abraham (Micah 7:20)?
The GOSPEL and its IRREVOCABLE GIFT & CALLING pertaining to being SAVED & being BELOVED as ‘it is written’ implied to ALL NATIONS too beyond OUR (believers’) Justification by Faith first:
“The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the GOSPEL beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.”” (Galatians 3:8)
“And so ALL ISRAEL shall be SAVED: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
For this is My Covenant unto them, when I shall take away THEIR SINS.” (Romans 11:26 – 27)
“As concerning the GOSPEL, they are ENEMIES for your sakes: but as touching the ELECTION, they are BELOVED for the fathers’ sakes.
For the GIFTS and CALLING of God are IRREVOCABLE.
For as ye in times past have not believed (obeyed) God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief (disobedience):
Even so have these also now not believed (obeyed), that through your mercy they ALSO may OBTAIN MERCY.
For God hath concluded them ALL in unbelief (disobedience), that He might have MERCY upon ALL .” (Romans 11:28 – 32)
