Here Is Why You Should Fear The Lord:The Nature Of God’s Anger

Have you ever thought of knowing the seriousness of God’s anger?. Though he is a loving God, but his punishment for rebellious Children is very fierce.He has destroyed thousands and yet to destroy more. He is a consuming fire, slow to anger and ready to save the righteous.

God's anger
God’s anger has destroyed a lot of people.He will never spare the unrepented sinner.He is about to pour his anger on all those who rebel against him.He is a consuming fire!

Before I begin it all,I want everyone to know that God’s anger remains on anyone who do not believe in the Son.

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever refuses to believe in the Son won’t see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
(John 3:36).

Often at times people, ask; ” Why should a loving God be Disastrous?. God Is a Spirit with human nature. He grieves when we sin.He is very jealous and will not let Sin go unpunished. He is a loving father who will not spare the rod on his wayward Children.

The Psalmist described the nature of God’s anger like this:

“The LORD is gracious, merciful, slow to anger, and of great loving kindness.”((Psalms 145:8).

Just like what every good parent will do.God’s anger disciplines us when we rebel against him.He is always right with his actions.

Anger is not a Sin, as Christ himself got angry when people turned his father’s house into a market place.(Matthew 21:12 – 13).The bible makes it plain that you can get angry,but don’t let the sun set on it.Don’t let your anger lead you to sin.

In the ancient days,God often became angry of his own people(Israel). God’s anger is very fierce than anything.He is a loving God,but hates rebellious Children.There are many accounts in the bible that show us the seriousness of God’s anger.

We keep on doing what he hates.Sinners and all those who stand against God today will drink from the cup of his anger.If God loves you more than anything, it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t punish your wrong doings.

Stay away from sin and be free from God’s anger.

Notable Scriptures About God’s Anger With His People

“The LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice”(1 Kings 11:9).

God loved Solomon so much.He made him King over Israel, gave him wisdom and wealth but when he turned away from his instructions, God became angry with him.

God chose Mosses to lead his people into the promised land.Upon all the kindness and protection God gave to Mosses and Children of Israel; He became angry with mosses.Already,God killed those Israelites who rebelled against him(Numbers 32:13,Numbers 11- 1 -2).Mosses lamented:

“Furthermore the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, and swore that I should not go over the Jordan, and that I should not go in to that good land, which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance”(Deuteronomy 4:21).

Mosses then reminded the Children of God to keep the covenant of God.He told them to say away from idolatry especially because God is a jealous God.In the verse 34 Mosses said:

” For the LORD your God is a devouring fire, a jealous God”

God’s wrath destroyed the inhabitants of this earth in the days of Noah and he is yet to pour out his wrath on disobedient Children again.(Genesis 6:13)

God’s Warning On Sinners

God’s greatest wrath is yet to come on disobedient Children.

Let no one deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.(Ephesians 5:6).

“Wail, for the LORD’s day of judgment is near; it comes with all the destructive power of the sovereign judge.For this reason all hands hang limp, every human heart loses its courage.They panic – cramps and pain seize hold of them like those of a woman who is straining to give birth. They look at one another in astonishment; their faces are flushed red.”(Isaiah 13:6 – 8)

Those who have entrusted in God with all their hearts, body and would are not under the wrath of God.
