If there is any one thing mankind should remember about God… it is His great love for mankind (all of us… all nationalities) and this is tolerance. From difference we find our need for God… from our frailty comes His strength… from our faith comes the trust He knows and desires the best for us. Harm not… love all that love Him. Love all that hate you… for we were once like them ourselves but have found mercy comes from God Himself. There is no other God that has said this… and those that come fully to this knowledge will have come closer to empty themselves of selfish concerns- to find His Will for your life.
Isaiah 46:8 “Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. 10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.

Below an abstract, taken from this link here… at biblestudytools.com- a great resource.
Christ never designed to be the Saviour of the fallen angels, therefore he did not take their nature; and the nature of angels could not be an atoning sacrifice for the sin of man. Here is a price paid, enough for all, and suitable to all, for it was in our nature. Here the wonderful love of God appeared, that, when Christ knew what he must suffer in our nature, and how he must die in it, yet he readily took it upon him. And this atonement made way for his people’s deliverance from Satan’s bondage, and for the pardon of their sins through faith. Let those who dread death, and strive to get the better of their terrors, no longer attempt to outbrave or to stifle them, no longer grow careless or wicked through despair. Let them not expect help from the world, or human devices; but let them seek pardon, peace, grace, and a lively hope of heaven, by faith in Him who died and rose again, that thus they may rise above the fear of death.
Do we know God from our feelings or should our feelings come from knowing God?
Come to know God and His ways… for His ways are not the ways of men or the world. If we say we lean more to feelings of God for man… are they not seen in our actions- loving or NOT?
It is my heartfelt desire for you to know the truth… the truth of God is He sent His Son to become the sacrificial lamb for the sins of men. Jesus was more than just a man… just a teacher… just a Holy man- Jesus was the Merciful God redeeming you from your sins… as only God can do for His own. Are you one of His children… or are you one of the children of disobedience?
John 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:18 KJV He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:36 KJV He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
If we show love is when we are shown to understand love- the type of person that knows love comes from God Himself. If we say we are taught by God… and want to become closer to God, we must then show mercy to all and the same love God has for us is the same we should also share. I pray you will thoughtfully consider these word of love- to prevent you from any unbelief or being stubborn and against God’s truth. I pray you will. (D.V.)
Your Brother in Christ Jesus,
