Most people read Hebrews 10:31 and think that falling into the hands of the living God, whilst terrifying, must also mean the sinners ultimate ruin.
Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
31fearful [is] the falling into the hands of a living God.
But David didn't seem to think so. In fact, he preferred it over the hands of men.
2 Samuel 24:14
14And David saith unto Gad, `I have great distress, let us fall, I pray thee, into the hand of Jehovah, for many [are] His mercies, and into the hand of man let me not fall.'
It seems too that based on these verses: God's wrath is NOT like man's wrath. God's "wrath" is merciful, whereas mankind's appears to be generally only cruel in nature.
Maybe the two verses shouldn't be connected. But hey, why not?
