3-28-2017 Hatred Without A Cause

Jesus said: “He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause’” (John 15:23-25 NKJV). Since “hatred without a cause” is from Moses’ Law, but only occurs in Psalm 35:19 and 69:4, then Jesus considered the Book of Psalms a part of “their law!” David wrote the wicked and deceitful “have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause” (Psalm 109:1-3 NKJV). Religious rage, road rage, phone rage, sexual rage are hate without a cause! Only the wicked will do it!
