Always remember that the Holy Spirit is the Author of the Holy Bible! This is how Peter can make THIS comment, in Acts 3:13-15

13 "The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses."

Peter, the one who denied the Lord three times, makes this comment. 

This is why Peter also made this comment:

20 "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (2 Pet 1:20-21)

Preached at ICC on June 28th.

The Apostle Paul revealed a great mystery to us: That the time was coming when the last Gentile was going to come to the faith, and God would, at that time, start to deal with Israel again, after 2000 years of "stupor."

This is the subject of today's sermon. Forgive me for the hum in the background for much of the audio.

A Hyperbole of Antithesis--Paul W. Esposito, Th.D.

People all the time love to quote Malachi 1:2-3 and Romans 9:13 which says, “Jacob I’ve loved, but Esau I’ve hated,” to prove that God literally hated Esau, and that was His sovereign choice.

I remember learning in  college (Moody Bible Institute) that this example is what’s known as a “hyperbole of antithesis.” Here are two of them:

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14:26)

Let’s break this down:

If anyone comes to me and does not hate

His Father

Mother

Wife

Children

Brothers and Sisters

He cannot be a Christian.

By the way, how are you doing with that?

This brings along with it a hearty laugh, followed by the words, “That’s not what’s intended by that verse!”

“That’s a hyperbole!”

Correct! I agree.

And here’s another example of a hyperbole of antithesis:

As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” (Romans 9:13)

Notice the comparative structure of both of these.

What the Lord is saying is, your love for Him ought to dwarf your love for everything else, by comparison.

When the smoke clears, at the conclusion of Revelation chapter 19, and the Great White Throne is before one and all, it’s hard to fathom that God hated some 90 % of His creation.

I can still envision this sign hanging over the gates of heaven:

“Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)

It’s your choice!

This I know, and will boldly declare: GOD LOVES YOU!!
