There is a very popular belief out there that Jesus only died for the elect. That he did not die for those who end up in the lake of fire, and that he did not die for the false prophets.
Well Jesus did die for the false prophets.
2 Peter 2:1, “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them.”
We can see clearly here Jesus died for the false prophets, bought them(with his blood) and the false prophets denying the Lord.
Jesus died for the Non-Elect.
“All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him” (Isaiah 53:6),
“He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them…” (2 Cor. 4:15),
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…” (Jn. 3:16),
“But we see Jesus…crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone” (Heb. 2:9),
“There is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all” (1 Tim. 2:5-6),
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only ours but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 Jn. 2:2),
Scripture is extra-clear Jesus died for all men – elect and non-elect. Yes there are passages that state he died for the church without mentioning the unsaved. But that is no reason to deny all these passages I have listed.
Limited Atonement is not taught in the scriptures, therefore it is a false doctrine of demons.

Joel Meredith has compiled a book of Bible lists “to entertain, interest, fascinate, stimulate and, most of all, to educate.” There are some minor problems with this list, but it gives you a good idea of what things God finds to be abominations, or are detestable to Him. Somehow, the author missed a couple. By adding in the following, the list grows to 45 things God hates:
44. “You shall not set up a sacred pillar, which the LORD your God hates” (Deuteronomy 16:22).
45. “I hate, I despise, your feast days” (Amos 5:21). This goes with Isaiah 1:14: “Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates.”
You may have heard the expression, “God hates the sin, but loves the sinner.” Although that is not a biblical statement per se, it has been accepted as a true statement. But after reviewing this list, that may not be such a sure conviction. What do you think?
I agree 100% that God hates.
