Does God love everyone? Is hate NOT in the Bible like most so called Christians believe?
Who is Jacob on the Earth today? Who is Esau on the Earth today? According to Revelations 12:12 the kingdom is only for the REAL Israelites. So who are they today?
Revelation 12:12 says: "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
I don't know what that has to do with Israel
Acts 28:28 says: "Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it."
Salvation is for everyone that accepts it.
I'm not sure if I'm answering your question here, but you might be making a good point. The "X'ian" religion, as preached by the New Testament, is essentially a Greek-based one formulated by Paul of Tarsus--a self-hating Jew. Yet so many people of the X'ian religion today look to the Old Testament and the Laws of Moses (instead of the New Testament) when they rage against homosexual acts, etc. The Laws of Moses were created specifically for the tribes of Israelites on which to base their whole society. It was not meant for the European Gentiles. While it is true that some of Paul's letters do mention some guidelines calling for self-denial and purity, this was because Paul and his followers believed Jesus would return in their lifetime and they had to prepare themselves for his coming. Sadly, instead of the return of Jesus, they got the "divine" Emperor Nero and the Roman Generals Domitian and Titus who destroyed Judea, killed everyone and leveled the Temple. This of course led to one "John" writing the widely-misunderstood epic poem Revolution with its frustrated and euphemistic account of these events. And ever since the disappointment of Jesus' not returning to avenge the deaths of his first followers and the destruction of Judea, westerners have been holding out and thinking their generation would be the one to see his return. As each generation is disappointed, each generation tends to look for more answers. People had turned against the Jews, yet had used their laws in their own religions. 300 years after Jesus, X'ians could not agree what Jesus actually was. Was he God? Was he God's son? Was he a man? Was he 50% man and 50% God? The Nicaeans decided he was 100% God and 100% man. Then they could not agree if he changed back and forth or if he was always both. An Arabic monotheistic religion emerged 600 years after Jesus' death as a contender for what is the "right" path to salvation. Because of that, X'ians have had to fight and be defensive against outside religions. As time passed, they had to become more devout and the religion has splintered into many protestant factions. We are now in the two-thousand and fourteenth year of Our Lord and Jesus still has not returned. The evangelists of the 1980s (who got rich off donations [selling indulgences?] by poor X'ians who wanted a better life) predicted the Rapture involving modern Israel and the USSR. Well those evangelists are now dead; and no Rapture.
Yes, God loves everyone.
The Bible is not to be read literally. It was written in code by Kabbalists. Only now is the code being revealed.
"Israel" means "path to God." And since God is Love, anyone who loves others as their self, and wishes for them everything that they desire, they are Israelites, for they are on the path to Love (God).
Look at Malachi 1:2-3 and you will find it written that god hates Esau meaning it is in the Bible and god does not love everyone.
