Have you ever thought of knowing the seriousness of God’s anger?. Though he is a loving God, 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.
What does the Bible mean about God’s anger? We can better define that by saying it is a violent emotion of a painful nature, which normally befall spontaneously upon people within an occasion. This comes as a punishment for mankind’s sin against God.
Before I begin it all, I want everyone to know that God’s anger remains on anyone who does 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.”
Anger is part of our human nature. God is the only one who is perfect in his wrath. He is a just God to whom vengeance and righteous judgment belong.
Often at times people, ask; “Why should a loving God be Disastrous?” God Is 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.
As you read along, you will find helpful Bible verses about the anger of God. They will help you better understand his fierceness when it comes to punishing rebellion people like idol worshipers or anyone who proves to be his enemy for real.
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 protest 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 marketplace (Matthew 21:12 – 13). The Bible makes it plain that you can get angry, but don’t let the sunset on it. Don’t let your anger lead you to sin.
In the ancient days, God often became angry with 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 wrongdoings.
Stay away from sin and be free from God’s anger.
