True Words but Wrong Explanations
Sometimes we speak of truth such as the one in picture thinking that it “only” applies to “us” (believers) but not realising that this ‘same way the propitiation (or turning away of wrath) applies to us’, it will also apply to the ‘sins of the whole world too!’ (beyond Hell itself, He being the ‘ransom’ (Payment) for ‘all’, a ‘testimony’ (coming to pass) in its ‘times’ (not all at the same time)):
“and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.” (1 John 2:2)
“Who did give himself a ransom for all — the testimony in its own times –” (1 Timothy 2:6)
Isn’t God’s Burning 🔥 Love of His Fire stronger than ‘any other love’ as implied by the verse below? Even stronger than Hell itself (“unquenchable”)
“Put me like a seal over your heart, Like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, Jealousy is as severe as Hell; Its flashes are flashes of fire, The very flame of the LORD.” (Song of songs 8:6)
*Note: If the ‘rich man’ in Luke 16:23 was in the ‘Hell-part’ of the ‘unseen’ realm of ‘Hades’ (the Greek) equivalent to ‘Sheol’ (in Hebrew), then the word ‘Sheol’ occurring in the original text of the verse above must just be ‘Hell’ too.
P/S: Let us ‘speak not words without knowledge (especially ‘those words’ with “no” verses)’ chiefly toward things ‘related to Him’ & ‘His Majesty’:
As God answers even faithful Job himself revealing His Greatness as the verses below speak:
“Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,
“Who is this that darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
“Now gird up your loins like a man,
And I will ask you, and you instruct Me!
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,” (Job 38:1 – 4)
Especially the set of verses below which speak a little regarding ‘death & darkness’:
“Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
“Have you understood the expanse of the earth?
Tell Me, if you know all this.
“Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
And darkness, where is its place,
That you may take it to its territory
And that you may discern the paths to its home?” (Job 38:17 – 20)
