Prov 16:4 4 The Lord hath made/created all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Here in this verse, the Word Things imply's people, humans, the wicked ! Another verse that speaks of the purpose of the wicked Job 21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath. I believe that both the wicked in Prov 16:4 and Job 21:30 are the ones Paul calls the Vessels of Wrath here Rom 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: Now understand something, some of and perhaps most of mankind, were for the purpose of God, were by God Himself created to be objects of His Wrath or Eternal/ Everlasting Destruction for their sins as these 2 Thess 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; And whether Vessels of Wrath or Mercy, God Created us all according to the Counsel of His Own Will/Purpose. Now the Vessels of Wrath are those He gave a physical being and existence to, yet He never had Chosen them in Christ before the foundation as He did those He Loved Eph 1:4-5 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Note: There is no evidence in scripture that God Loved any save His Chosen Deut 7:6-7 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. 7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: God denied the Vessels of Wrath to be part of His Election of Grace. Such ones will never and had never had their names written in the Lambs Book of Life, neither did the Lamb slain from the foundation shed one ounce of His Blood for them, nor will the Holy Spirit,in conjunction with Election and the Death of Christ, give them any Spiritual life, No New Birth, for such Spiritual Blessings come solely in conjunction with and according to being Chosen in the Beloved Eph 1:3-6 !
