If you live in the United States, are you apologetic to England for pulling away from the Queen's authority and seeking what you now have? Or, do you feel PRIDE in the break from Her and the new found LIBERTY you experience in this country?
These same questions apply to Satan and his spirit followers that rebelled from the Royal Crown of our Majesty Yahweh and formed their own UNION based on a more liberal rule.
Does Yahweh hate Satan and the other fallen angels? She hates evil. i.e., anyone that opposes Her Rule. She hates what they have become. Could Yahweh bend Her law to show mercy to Satan and his demons?
Romans 9:15 "For He tells Moses: I will show mercy to whom I show mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."
With Yahweh's law She can show mercy to whom She pleases - Satan and his demons NOT included in a show of mercy. Satan says that proves Her vindictiveness. And with the LOZ, She gives this same command at Armageddon:
Deuteronomy 7:2 "and when the LORD your God delivers them over to you and you defeat them, you must completely destroy them. Make no treaty with them and show them no mercy."
And how will Yahweh deliver the evil class over to the LOZ? With Her disasters in nature.
So, Romans 9:18 "So then, He shows mercy to whom He wills, and He hardens whom He wills."
Yahweh hardens hearts just like She did Pharaoh in ancient times. Satan says Yahweh accuses him of interference of free will, but is guilty of the same tactic. And, Satan accuses Yahweh of being a liar about free will and having favorable works, because he says She already knows who She will show mercy regardless of your faith or works:
Romans 9:16 "So then it does not depend on human will or effort, but on God who shows mercy." with that Scripture stated, and this:
Romans 3:28 "For we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law."
Important point - WORKS OF LAW - but NOT necessarily WORKS by means of your faith. Because if faith alone saves you, then what about this:
Psalm 62:12 "and faithful love belongs to You, LORD. For You repay each according to his works."
Do you think faith alone can save you? Satan accuses Yahweh of double talk. He says that the Word is two faced, because of this:
2 Timothy 1:9 "who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began."
And especially because of this:
James 2:14 "[ Faith and Works ] What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith, but does not have works? Can his faith save him?"
So, are you saved totally by grace? If you believe that, then you had better be aware of this:
Revelation 2:23 "I will kill her children with the plague. Then all the churches will know that I am the One who examines minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your works."
This is all food for thought.
