Question 55 - Love and hate in impartial one!

Acts 10:34 NKJV - "Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality."
Romans 2:11 NKJV - "For there is no partiality with God."
Romans 9:11-13 NKJV - "(for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls), it was said to her, "The older shall serve the younger." As it is written, "Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.""
Malachi 1:2-3 NKJV - ""I have loved you," says the LORD. "Yet you say, 'In what way have You loved us?' Was not Esau Jacob's brother?" Says the LORD. "Yet Jacob I have loved; But Esau I have hated, And laid waste his mountains and his heritage For the jackals of the wilderness.""
Genesis 4:4-5 NKJV - "Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the LORD respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cainand his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell."
Inference in the question: - Why was the Lord, who is not partial, love on one person and hates another?
                God knows our inner thoughts as per Jeremiah 11:20 and Hebrews 4:12. He saved Baby Jesus from Herod as He knew the inner thoughts of Herod. Also He did not accept Cain’s sacrifices as He knew how evil Cain was in his thoughts.
                The Lord God hated first fruits according to their fall from the birth right i.e. Adam, Cain, Esau, and Aaron etc. And so, all the first fruits in the Old Testament were reckoned as the culprits in the view of the Lord. If the Lord Christ was not considered as the culprit, there is no salvation to us.
