Four Dimensions of Jesus

dimensions of Jesus
Based upon twitter, it seems that pastors have done a good job of speaking about the love of Jesus with its limited view of what love actually is and has completely abandoned the hate and how it operates with joy and sorrow. See the four dimensions of Jesus are love, hate, joy, and sorrow.

The joy and sorrow are interwoven in both love and hate. Love is separate from hate, but both have within them concerning Jesus joy and sorrow. Consider these verses below for example:

Just as it pleased the LORD to make you prosper and increase in number, so it will please him to ruin and destroy you (Deuteronomy 28:63). So I will laugh when you are in trouble! I will mock you when disaster overtakes you (Proverbs 1:26). In God’s hatred there is joy. Contrast with “As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live” (Ezekiel 33:11). In the Lord’s hatred there is joy and there is sorrow.

In the Lord’s love there is joy and sorrow. For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17). If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not (Hebrews 12:7)? Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them (Proverbs 13:24). In the Lord’s love there is joy and there is sorrow.

If you relegate Jesus to love without discipline and without hatred, you have been deceived by Satan. For his love and hatred along with joy and sorrow are all found within the Bible, which is the standard for the Christian.

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
