Reserved for What? Who? Why?

Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day  is the evil thereof. ”

– Mat: 6:34

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, while reading Bible, the following verses were given in the context of “Reserved  from The Holy Bible-KJV.

Gen-27:36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob?
for he hath supplanted me these two times:
he took away my birthright; and, behold,
now he hath taken away my blessing.
And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?

37. And Isaac answered and said unto Esau,
Behold, I have made him thy lord,
and all his brethren have I given to him for servants;
and with corn and wine have I sustained him:
and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?
38. And Esau said unto his father,
Hast thou but one blessing, my father?
bless me,  even me also, O my father.
And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

Num-18:9 This shall be thine of the most holy things,
reserved from the fire:
every oblation of theirs,
every meat offering of theirs,
and every sin offering of theirs,
and every trespass offering of theirs,
which they shall render unto me,
shall be most holy for thee and for thy sons.

Jdg-21:22 And it shall be, when their fathers
or their brethren come unto us to complain,
that we will say unto them,
Be favourable unto them for our sakes:
because we reserved not to each man his wife in the war:
for ye did not give unto them at this time,
that ye should be guilty.

Rth-2:18 And she took  it up,
and went into the city:
and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned:
and she brought forth,
and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.

2Sa-8:4 And David took from him a thousand  chariots,
and seven hundred horsemen,
and twenty thousand footmen:
and David houghed all the chariot  horses,
but reserved of them  for an hundred chariots.

1Ch-18:4 And David took from him a thousand chariots,
and seven thousand horsemen,
and twenty thousand footmen:
David also houghed all the chariot  horses,
but reserved of them an hundred chariots.

Job-21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction?
they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

38:22. Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?
or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

Job-38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble,
against the day of battle and war?

Act-25:21 But when Paul had appealed to be reserved
unto the hearing of Augustus,
I commanded him to be kept
till I might send him to Caesar.

Rom-11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him?
I have reserved to myself seven thousand men,
who have not bowed the knee to  the image of Baal.

1Pe-1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you,

2Pe-2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned,
but cast  them down to hell,
and delivered  them into chains of darkness,
to be reserved unto judgment;

5. And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth  person,
a preacher of righteousness,
bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6. And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes
condemned  them with an overthrow,
making  them an ensample unto those
that after should live ungodly;
7. And delivered just Lot,
vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8. (For that righteous man dwelling among them,
in seeing and hearing,
vexed  his righteous soul
from day to day with  their unlawful deeds; )
9. The Lord knoweth
how to deliver the godly out of temptations,
and to reserve the unjust
unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10. But chiefly them that walk after the flesh
in the lust of uncleanness,
and despise government.
Presumptuous  are they, selfwilled,
they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

2Pe-2:17 These are wells without water,
clouds that are carried with a tempest;
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2Pe-3:7 But the heavens and the earth,
which are now,
by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment
and perdition of ungodly men.

Jud-1:11. Woe unto them!
for they have gone in the way of Cain,
and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward,
and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12. These are spots in your feasts of charity,
when they feast with you,
feeding themselves without fear:
clouds  they are without water,
carried about of winds;
trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit,
twice dead,
plucked up by the roots;

Jud-1:13 Raging waves of the sea,
foaming out their own shame;
wandering stars,
to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
