Gods mercy is very different than human mercy . We see that we do not know God well and the more we read the bible the more we spend time with God the more we can know Him .
As God does not reveal Himself much to people who do not want to know Him . Unless God sees someone with a special heart that He can use . Gods mercy scripture we will find out that Gods mercy is totally different often than what our society uses to judge people and others . Let us find out five ways Gods mercy is shown ot people in the holy bible
1 Gods mercy scripture Mary Magdalene
Mary magdalene was a prostitute . Not only that she was having sex with a lot of married men . Not only that but Mary magdalene had sex with the leaders in the church . One after the other . This is why the pharisee were condemning her and ready to stone her to death . Most of the pharisees who were ready to stone Mary magdalene had sex with her .
They were married men and they were leaders with high position in the church and in the Israel government . Yet Jesus had mercy on her and Jesus said
JN 8 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Why did Jesus had mercy on this women who even in today's society would be seen as depreved and Jesus rebuked the church leaders ? It is because good and evil for God is very different than what society says is good and evil
Like you have read in previous post Sex out of marriage is not a sin ans Nudity is not a sin . Sexual sins can be very offensive to God . Sex out of marriage is not offensive to God . Adultery, homosexuality, cheating and playing with people's feelings is very offensive to God .
In this case Mary magdalene was having sex with married men so yes this was a sin . Gods mercy quotes say that not what we do outwardly is so bad as who we are , what our personality . Modern christianity is almost always rebuking the fruits of being evil and not the fact that the person itself needs reforming with the righteousness of Jesus . Alchool, drugs, sex, porn all these things are outward things people do .
Even if these things are not the best they are much worse sins that are never talked about in churches such as selfishness, pride, apathy, unloving spirit . These things makes someone evil even if they claim to be christian . The fruits and who they are say they are far from being christians and they belong to Satan .
2 Gods mercy scripture The pharisees
A drunk or drug addict can be a loving, kind, honest person . Yet somewhere in life they fell into that addiction that binds their life . That person needs to quit the alchool yes, but people who seem sanctified like church members are often much ore wicked that the people they rebuke .
Some church members arr selfish and proud . These are much ore offensive sins
PR 8 13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Nd this is the story of the bible often we see God rebuking his own people and welcoming people who society says are evil but in the whom God sees wonderful things . The pharisess were doing a lot of things to show themselves holy . Yet holiness does not come from our works . Holiness is shown in who we are . A power from God called righteousness by faith gives us power to do good. No other power can do that .
Humans are incapable of doing or having any right impulse for good in themselves . Gods mercy is shown to te prostitute who was having a lot of sex with a great number of men . Yet the church leaders who thought themselves to be good Jesus often rebuked and sais they were the sons of the Devil and that they could hardly escape the fires of hell
JN 8 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
MT 23 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Gods mercy was not shown to the pharisees as they did not repent. They refused Gods mercy scripture tells us that many died in the siege of Jerusalem in ad 70 . They thought themselves to be good when they were evil . They were blind . On the other hand Gods mercy quotes in the bible says that Mary magdalene repented .
3 Gods mercy scripture Samson
Samson called by God To Israel Gods mercy was shown in the deliverance from the philistines . The Angel of the Lord who is Jesus . Jesus is not an angel the appelation Angel of the Lord means the messenger . Everytime the Angel of the lord appear people worship Him .
After Samson sees a prostitute The Holy Spirit comes upon Samson and he takes the gates of the city and brings them to the top of a mountain . How could Gods mercy scripture says favour that ? God is not like humans Gof sees the heart of the person . Many times we see in the bible what is very offensive to God is that someone is proud when they are so they say I am god .
They lie saying that , they rob God of his glory . Selfishness is very offensive to God , Selfish people do not love others, proud people do not love others . These are the sins that offend God who told us Love God and love other people .
RO 9 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
God loves people who are like Him and for you to enter heaven you will need to be like God
humble, honest, kind, full of compassion and mercy and gentleness .
4 Gods mercy scripture The papacy
There are many loving roman cathtolic people . The true church the seventh day adventist church often bashes the cahtolics and rightly so from bible prophecy we learn that the antichrist is the papacy and will be leading the world to total perdition under the leadership of Satan .
But Gods mercy is upon some catholics . There are many good cahtolics people who are kind and honest . And the greater part of the remnant church is found in the chatholic religion . But in time sast them too the popes abused their power . They were proud and selfish and they went so far as to take a pen and mark where God said
in the ten commandments
EX 30 8 Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy
The pope wrote sunday instead of saturday . This is very offensive to God . This is mocking God and playing with God's majesty and greatness. This is a great insult to God . Not only that but the papacy did not receive Gods mercy scripture tells is that what they did in the inquisition
Came back to them in the french revolution where the catholic priest died and were beheaded in the same place where the huguenots were killed before . Some sins are very offensive to God . The main sins is to not love . To not love God and not love others . By being proud we cannot love others . By being selfish we cannot love others as self has the mastery
God even calls us to come out of the papacy and antichrist Yet those God callas are wonderful people catholics
RE 18 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities
Gods mercy quotes in the bible tells us that the end of the world will come as Gods mercy will be no more when USA and the papacy pass a sunday law. And all nations follow the same path . At that time the world will have completely removed God from their hearts and will go so far as to change the bible and change the law of God which is the basis for out conduct . Mocking God insulting God , Men think that he is better than God . This is when Gods justice and punishment s will fall . Men is going too far into sin and offense
5 Gods mercy scripture Pagans in the time sof Paul
Paul was sometime sin coties where there were very few christians yet God said
AC 18 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
But how can God say He has many people in a city ? It means that God can use pagans who never heard the truth . Gods mercy is upon those who are humble, honest, kind, loving, sincere and warm . Whether they are christians , pagans, atheists or muslims . It is true that to be saved we need to accept Jesus .
But by people's fruits we know them . When i meet someone or when i go in a city i always inquire first . Is this person loving, humble ,kind honest or are they proud, selfish, apathic and unloving ? As with their fruits i know to whom the person belong .
2 TI 3 3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Not tho ewho say Jesus enter heaven but those who have the fruits . Do you want to be like the fig tree that was cursed because he was not bearing fruits . No evangelism, no work telling others they are going to die unless they change course ? No helping those in need ? Then you are like a tree that has no fruit and needs to cut down .
How much longer will God bear with a world that does not bear fruits but only cares for themselves . Prostitutes will enter heaven before the christians as their hearts could reveal more love and humility sincerity and honesty then those who profess to be the people of God
Do you want to be cut down ? Do you want to be a barren tree ? Do you want to ne blessed and not giving any blessing to others ? Then you will not enter heaven a place for only those who love others . Repeat after me Father God please forgive my sins forgive my selfishness pride and unloving spirit . Help me to bear the fruits of the spirit . Give me the righteousness of Jesus which is the only solution to save me from my poluted self . Please provide for my needs and heal me in the name of Jesus amen
