JESUS CHRIST: THE WORLD'S MOST HATED GOD

Jesus Christ: The World's Most Hated God

by Pastor Jeromy John Visser

(Introduction:)

Brethren, unlike any other lower-case 'god' to be found on planet earth, Jesus is without a doubt the most hated by mankind. A casual glance at the subtle ways in which He's slandered and ridiculed by the media proves that unlike Buddha, Allah, Mithra or any other false god it's certainly Christ that is most despised, this evening we will examine why. The irony is that most who deny Him are actually His chosen bride but they instead allow the enemy to present another Christ (II Corinthians 11:4) causing the actual Savior of the Bible to be misrepresented in the minds of His selected people. Not even the New Testament commands are followed by Christians today.

It's happened thousands of times -- an atheist will be debating a spirit-filled Christian about religion and they will eventually make statements like "Christians are supposed to..." or "Jesus says to..." when in reality they have no idea whatsoever on how Christians are supposed to behave because they haven't become familiar with Jesus nor His living Word (Revelation 19:13). This is what happens when we allow antichrist pagans to be our taskmasters or government storm-troopers, the real path is obscured while so-called 'believers' are told they must be passive and openly accept man's ordinances -- accommodating homosexual marriage might just spring to mind.

Most of what we'll be covering tonight isn't even mentioned behind the modern government-controlled 'pulpits' that litter our country in these end times, nonetheless such teachings are all found in the Word of God which shall be proven. There is no doubt that God is love (I John 4:8) but the Bible never once says that He's "love only" without the ability to hate or destroy -- in fact, it says just the opposite. Yahweh created His elect people after His own image (Genesis 5:1) which means that aside from the flesh our emotions are not much different than His, at least they shouldn't be. If the Creator dislikes something than it's the Christian's job to hate those same things.

(God Is All:)

As Christians, we're commanded to 'love' our personal enemies but never once are we told to adore those who outright hate Jesus Christ, His Word or moral teachings. Jesus once told His listeners; Mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me (Luke 19:27). Think about that statement for a moment -- like most things in the Bible, inferior man has made it almost impossible to do as we're commanded without serious repercussions by the false government 'god' called Uncle Scam. Our inability to follow this command in the past is the reason we're up to our necks in perverts and antichrists during this present age.

Before continuing, I'd like to clarify that Christians should not go out and murder unbelievers as they're considered "spiritually dead" anyway -- their time will come for Judgment from Yahweh. In comparison, one of Paul's teachings on homosexuals is found in Romans 1:32 and blatantly states; They which commit such things are worthy of death. Facts are facts, a believer must make up their mind early in their Christian walk whether to follow man's 'feel good' teachings of Judge not or to stand behind the promise of For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged (Matthew 7:1-2). Those who live by the Word of God are safely evaluated according to it.

Paul once taught; For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him (1Co 8:5-6). Mankind possesses the ability to both love and hate but at most times will turn their contempt towards those who teach the Bible without any personal gain, this aspect is seen perfectly in the example of Jesus Christ who earned Himself a death sentence for doing the same. We can also see from this principle that there are scores of inferior 'gods' as the first commandant suggests.

(God Can Hate:)

Contrary to popular belief, God not only has the ability to hate parts of His creation but He does so in many places throughout the scriptures with Esau and his Edomite progeny being the worst offenders. The Old Testament says; I [Yahweh] hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness (Malachi 1:3) only to again be quoted as a double witness in the New Testament by the apostle Paul; "It is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated (Romans 9:13). There are abundant reasons for God's personal dislike of Esau but his worst offense is an outright denial of his birthright (Genesis 25:34), much like today.

There are over forty-three things in the Bible listed by name that Yahweh hates. A few of those items are false oaths (Zechariah 8:17), idolatry (Jeremiah 44:2-4), artificial new moons and appointed feasts (Isaiah 1:14), those who justify the wicked or condemn the just (Proverbs 17:15), homosexual acts (Leviticus 18:22), divination, witches and astrology (Deuteronomy 18:10). That being established, we can now safely say that anyone who denies Yahweh's ability to hate others is an obvious false prophet that fancies himself on a higher level than God Himself -- such examples of perfection can obviously not be made in the same image and likeness of the Creator.

While not giving occasion to wrath (James 1:20) it was an obvious hatred for what was transpiring in the temple that caused our perfect example Jesus to wield a whip against the various money-changers (John 2:15) while overturning their lucrative tables of finance. Christ is God manifest in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16) so surely Christians should be filled with a similar type of hatred towards any person or creature that would make merchandise of God's Word (II Peter 2:3). Again, it's our inability to mark false prophets as commanded by God that has the world covered in post-hippie doctrines of "love and worldly prosperity" for those who should be bearing their own cross.

(God Commands Hate:)

Anyone familiar with the Word of Yahweh should also be aware that there is a time to hate (Ecclesiastes 3:8) in addition to a time for love. This shouldn't be a confusing concept but sadly many false preachers make it as such by telling their followers they shouldn't hate anyone or anything, of course their error is really in confusing the two very different terms of 'judge' and 'discern.' To say that Christians hope for a clean and safe future by not allowing homosexual perverts or modern witches around their family is not judging -- it's called using discernment. True "judging" means condemning somebody to eternal punishment which is God's exclusive right (Psalm 75:7).

No true Christian would trade a single day of Yahweh's protection for an empty promise of increased finance. While Paul was promoting the ministry of Christ he simply considered himself a "slave for Jesus" which is what the term servant (Romans 1:1) means -- this is because the truth-seeking mind doesn't posses the ability to accept falsehoods. Sure some false prophets might rob a bank and quickly claim 'Christian suffering' but common sense proves that such people are only slaves to their own desires or simple love of money (I Timothy 6:10). Everything must be in proper balance or it's vanity -- to "overlook" something means to deny the truth of the matter.

Jesus teaches; If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple (Luke 14:26-27). While many preachers attempt to say that the word translated as hate in this passage really means "to love less" it's actually the lesser meaning because Strong's (#G3404) actually defines the Greek word miseō as; "hatred; to detest (especially to persecute); by extension to love less: - hate (-ful)." One only 'bears his cross' to be crucified upon it and even less understand that God is our Father.

(God Knows Hate:)

David once asked God; Do not I hate them, O Yahweh, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies (Psalm 139:21-22). The antichrist enemy knows that if they can attack the Shepherd then His flock will scatter so it's through twisting of these Bible verses on hatred that they've managed to make a warrior people into passive "meat for the beasts of the field." In the minds of the sheeple today the term Christian is equated to an almost effeminate person who allows the entire world's heathens to walk all over them. It's through these false 'images' that the adversary derives power.

The Messianic 22nd Psalm teaches that while Christ hung from the cross His own personal feeling was; I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels (Psalm 22:14). Naturally, that's an entirely different viewpoint than what's taught by mainstream churchianity that would have you to believe Jesus somehow enjoyed the beatings or died loving all people, wicked or not. Like mindless lemmings oftentimes the masses will parrot terms like "Love the sinner and hate the sin" even though such concepts are entirely anti-Biblical and outright antichrist. In fact, such pretenders give power to the beast.

John the Revelator taught; Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you (I John 3:13) because it was his own Master that promised; 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 (Luke 6:22). The closer our walk with Jesus the more "worldly hatred" we heap upon ourselves as John 15:18-19 reads; If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

(God Rewards Hate:)

When teaching about 'standing out' Jesus gives Christians a valuable key when He says; The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil (John 7:7). So it stands today, the preacher who actually has loins enough to speak out against homosexuality, witchcraft or other abominations is instantly dubbed as a "hater" oftentimes by others who claim the title of Christian. While doing so he also forfeits his "right" of protection from the government in already unnecessary tax-exemptions or 501(c)3 statuses and is usually ostracized from his community or family for not being "politically correct" enough -- it's either the truth or lies.

One cannot follow Christ and not suffer because it's either God or the world, never both. Another one of Jesus' teachings dealing with hatred is; No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew 6:24). There's no such thing as a 'virgin whore' nor a 'partial Christian' because all those who straddle the fence are rightfully vomited away in Judgment (Revelation 3:16), it's simply that black and white because there's absolutely no grey area with Yahweh. Knowing this fact should make choosing others to have fellowship with a much easier decision.

In the book of Revelation we're taught that the two churches of Ephesus and Pergamos both had one thing to their credit -- they hated the deeds and doctrines of the Nicolaitans which Jesus Christ also hates (Revelation 2:6 & 15). Meditate on this statement for a moment, if neither church was found in complete favor with God but their hatred of certain things were counted as righteous acts than obviously both overcoming churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia did hate as they both knew about the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9 & 3:9). This "key of David" unlocks many doors and sets one free in Christ.

(God Hates Whores:)

From start to finish the Bible story is about an unfaithful bride called Israel (Jeremiah 3:14) that continually goes whoring after other gods and customs that the bridegroom Yahweh disapproves of -- this is considered as adulteration or adultery. Knowing this aspect it should become obvious why the overcoming company chosen by God are they who; shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate (Revelation 17:16). God never compromises when it comes to the separation orders of the Bible and His followers are to strictly follow His commands, failure to do so always leads to eventual disaster and society as we know it today is again going down this same path.

God never said to make alliances with the world's antichrists. His orders have always been along the lines of Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images (Exodus 23:24). Thankfully, God is unable to change (Malachi 3:6) so we can be assured that this is still the way He wants things done, in fact it's the only way to bring about a true Christian society. Jesus teaches us to pray; Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10) meaning that His return is about bringing a new government (Isaiah 9:6) or the Kingdom age upon earth.

Here's an often overlooked commandment from the Bible; Hate the evil, and love the good (Amos 5:15). That doesn't say to "hate the sin but love the sinner" as false prophets teach but is more in line with another teaching from scripture; Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil (I Thessalonians 5:21-22). Those who are unable to hate those things as commanded by Yahweh can hardly call themselves Christian because they are empowering wickedness in the process. Revulsion of iniquitous things is essential to properly serve the God of Israel who also has His own hate list (Proverbs 6:16). Take heed and use discernment.

(Intention:)

Several weeks ago I authored a semi-autobiographical piece called Whatever Happened To Peavey? that seemingly left a negative impression on the topic of Christian suffering -- that was not my purpose. Through that and this evening's work my intention is to build the faith of others by proving the Word of God always rings true irregardless of circumstance. There are many "ministries" out there (in name only) spending more time working out long constitutional lists of 'by-laws' or tithing coupons while never offering substance.

Yahweh promises; I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding (Jeremiah 3:15). Based on what we've covered today it should also be apparent that these same pastors will face the most heat for teaching the unadulterated Word of God -- it is teachers like these that require our support. As we slip further into apostasy knowledge will increase so we should also do our part to not support those who teach doctrines foreign to scripture, we are responsible for those we assist.

It's my prayer that this sermon touches all those who need it and our readers (or listeners) are set free in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through it. Hatred is not necessarily always a horrible trait as we can't know love without being familiar with it to some degree. Love one another while working towards bringing others to Truth (John 17:17) but never allow wickedness to get the upper-hand in your life as we're commanded to fight against it always. Let's never allow others to cost us our positions in Yahweh's coming Kingdom. War for Christ! Amen.
