These words came from Jesus himself to explain how serious hatred is. He should know because He was and is the most hated person who ever lived.
People say they hate Jesus and everything about Him, and disregard what He did for all of us. There must be reasons for this attitude.
People that feel that way are influenced by satan, or they wouldn't dare say anything like that. They bought his lies, and live in total darkness, so they cannot see the truth. Most have been in darkness so long, the light hurts their eyes. They do not realize, that by hating anyone, they are condemning themselves.
More than likely all of these people greatly enjoy all of the sin satan introduced them to. Then along comes Jesus, and He says that we are not supposed to do those things.
Jesus is the light that hurts. By His example we see our sins. People don't want to stop their sinfulness, so they get angry at Jesus. satan convinces many that there is no hell, Jesus doesn't love them, or He won't forgive them. They hate Jesus because of who they are, and the fact that He has exposed their guilt. They even hate themselves. Hate makes you blind to everything, and that is just what satan likes.
Anyone can come to Jesus and ask to be forgiven, and they will be. Jesus is love, and love conquers hate. Have a blessed day.
Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
