A Loving And A JUST God

People are so quick to bring up how God is a loving God but they never mention that He’s also just. If God didn’t love us He wouldn’t have cared if we all went to hell, but He did care because He’s a just God. People say that if God really loves us He wouldn’t send people to hell, but God doesn’t send people to hell people send themselves there. God sending Jesus to die for our sins even when He knew that not everyone would accept Him shows how much He loves us.
Romans 8:31-39
What Adam did effected all mankind even though it wasn’t our fault. God being the just God He is used Jesus so that we’d all have a fair chance. We all have a choice to either go to heaven or hell. (1 Corinthians 15:21-22- Death came into the world because of what one man (Adam) did, and it is because of what this other man (Christ) has done that now there is the resurrection from the dead. Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, being members of his sinful race, and wherever there is sin, death results. But all who are related to Christ will rise again.)
Not everyone is related to Christ, to be apart of God’s family, you must trust in Him to be saved.
Romans 3:21-26

Many times people say that they don’t believe a loving God would send people to hell. Yes God is loving but He is also just. He gives us free will and it’s up to us to decide if we wanna give our life to Him or not. The question is NOT “Why would a loving God send anyone to hell.” The question is “Why would anyone chose hell over a loving God.” People don’t realize that choosing to reject God is choosing to spend an eternity without Him. Yes, it’s a choice because everyone gets a chance to know about God. (Isaiah 65:1- The Lord says, People who never before inquired about me are now seeking me out. Nations who never before searched for me are finding me.)

The Bible says spare the rod, spoil the child. When we got beat as a kid my dad would always say I’m only doing this because I love you. Of course I never understood it then but as I got older it made sense. God disciplines us because He loves us. (Proverbs 3:11-12- Young man, do not resent it when God chastens and corrects you, for his punishment is proof of his love. Just as a father punishes a son he delights in to make him better, so the Lord corrects you.)
Hebrews 12:5-11
The reason I brought up discipline is because it’s a form of punishment. Allow God to discipline you now instead of waiting for the eternal punishment which is hell. If you end up in hell there’s no way to escape, it’ll be too late. When people are talking to you about Jesus, don’t put it off and think that you have time to live how you want and then come back to God because once you hear the Gospel you are now held accountable. The Bible says that on Judgment Day we will be held accountable for our actions, which is what we did and did not do. Did we live for God or do our own thing? Did we give up our life for Him or reject Him?
Proverbs 1:20-33
When you turn away from God, the path that you turn to leads to death.

Hell was not made for us. (Matthew 25:41- Then I will turn to those on my left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons.) God created angels and Satan used to be one. Satan wanted to take God’s place and he convinced 1/3 of the angels to join him and now they’re all doomed to hell. (Revelation 20:10- Then the devil who had betrayed them will again be thrown into the Lake of Fire burning with sulphur where the Creature and False Prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.) If the devil and his demons were created by God and doomed to hell what makes us think that God won’t send us to hell for rejecting Him? A right judge must punish when a crime is committed. (Jude 1:6- And I remind you of those angels who were once pure and holy but turned to a life of sin. Now God has them chained up in prisons of darkness, waiting for the judgment day.) God wouldn’t be a just God if He didn’t give everyone a chance to know Him, but He does. If anyone goes to hell, it’s because they chose to. I watched this movie The Encounter recently and something that stuck out to me was “no one goes to hell blindfolded, the choice is up to you.”
Ezekiel 18
(Luke 15:10- In the same way there is joy in the presence of the angels of God when one sinner repents.”) God doesn’t want us to go to hell, hell wasn’t even made for us. God is fair, it’s us who aren’t. Would you let a stranger who didn’t even like you stay in your home? Of course not so why would God let someone who doesn’t love Him stay in His? If you couldn’t obey God on earth, how can you obey Him in heaven? One thing God doesn’t do is force Himself on us, He gives everyone free will and what you do with it is up to you.

God is a loving and a just God and because He’s fair He gives us warnings. How many times in your life did God warn you not to do something and you did and wish you would’ve listened. That’s been me a bunch of times. God wants us to be okay and He looks out for us so He gives us warnings, but if you don’t take heed it won’t help you.
Genesis 4:1-12
(Genesis 4:7- It can be bright with joy if you will do what you should! But if you refuse to obey, watch out. Sin is waiting to attack you, longing to destroy you. But you can conquer it!”) All Cain had to do was take heed to God’s warning but he didn’t and killed his brother. I did a Bible Study lesson months ago title Warning and it talked about how when people think of Noah and his ark, they usually just think of someone who made a giant boat, but no. Noah and his ark was about a WARNING! (Genesis 6:3- Then Jehovah said, “My Spirit must not forever be disgraced in man, wholly evil as he is. I will give him 120 years to mend his ways.”) (2 Peter 2:5- And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;) Noah was a preacher and a preacher’s job is to preach the Gospel. Of course Jesus hadn’t died on the cross yet but Noah was building that boat and warning them that a flood was coming. No one listened and everyone but Noah and his family of 7 were the only people who survived the flood. Even now God gave us the Bible and even the book of Revelation to warn what’s to come if we don’t accept Him as Lord and Savior. (Revelation 1:3- If you read this prophecy aloud to the church, you will receive a special blessing from the Lord. Those who listen to it being read and do what it says will also be blessed. For the time is near when these things will all come true.)
