That doesn’t “sound” like love

Smacks. Spitting. Cussing. Lashings. Blood splatter. Cries of pain and torment. Scornful jeering. And the sound of hammers against nails.

To the average person, these sounds don’t sound anything like love.

But the interpretation of the sounds isn’t left up to the ears of the hearer. The interpretation is left up to the person who predicted these sounds before they were ever heard.

Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.” (1 Peter 1:10-11 – NKJV)
