Although Jesus gave the world no cause to hate him , the world hates him because he testifies of it that the works thereof are evil. He said the world would hate his followers too . Jesus' beloved disciple John warned Christians not to marvel that the world hated Christians . Jesus said that all that will live godly in Christ shall suffer persecution , and would be mocked reviled and hated in his name . He also said Christians would be hated of all nations for his names' sake.
God created man so that he could have pure unfettered fellowship with souls who would willingly love and trust him because they could see that he loved them . But man chose to turn his back to God and became a murderer at heart , as evidenced by Cain . Proverbs 6:16 denotes seven abominations of the human heart inherited through Adam's sin of disobedience .They are ; a proud look , a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood , an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations , feet that be swift in running to mischief , a false witness that speaketh lies , and he that soweth discord among brethren . God loves righteousness and hates iniquity and the work of them that turn aside .
God tells Christians to hate the evil and love the good and establish judgment in the gate . He said let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbor ; and love no false oath ; for all these things are things that I hate . He said he hates every false way .
He asks , " How long ye simple ones , will ye love simplicity ? and scorners delight in their scorning , and fools hate knowledge , but he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul : all they that hate me love death .
Jesus said Blessed are ye , when men shall hate you , and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you , and cast out your name as evil , for the Son of Man's sake . Rejoice ye in that day and leap for joy : for behold , your reward is great in heaven : for in like manner did their fathers unto the prophets . But I say unto you which hear , love your enemies , do good to them which hate you. But love ye your enemies , and do good and lend , hoping for nothing again : and your reward shall be great , and ye shall be children of the Highest : for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil . For if ye love them which love you , what reward have ye ? And if ye salute your brethren only , what do ye more than others ? do not even the publicans so ? Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect .
God will some day judge every human soul regarding their thoughts and actions because he created us and is jealous and he revenges ; the Lord revengeth , and is furious ; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries , and he reserveth wrath for his enemies . His enemies are those who never believed in him . He warned his early church ; " Take heed to thyself , lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest , lest it be a snare in the midst of thee : but ye shall destroy their altars , break their images , and cut down their groves : for thou shalt worship no other god : for the Lord whose name is Jealous , is a jealous God: lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land , and they go a whoring after other gods , and do sacrifice unto their gods , and one call thee , and thou eat of his sacrifice . " Adam had in essence eaten of that sacrifice . God said ; " Know therefore that the Lord thy God , the faithful God , which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations ; and repayeth them that hate him to their face to destroy them : he will not be slack to him that hateth him , he will repay him to his face . " He said ; " According to their deeds accordingly he will repay fury to his adversaries , recompense to his enemies ; to the islands he will repay recompense ...If I whet my glittering sword and mine hand take hold on judgment : I will render vengeance to mine enemies , and will reward them that hate me .
