Five Truths about the Wrath of God
The doctrine of the wrath of God is not taught or preached much in today’s world. Any mention of God’s wrath upsets today’s modern opinions. It’s too disturbing, too troubling, too biased.
The vast majority (Mat.7:13), live as if they were the judge and God is on trial. “How can a loving God send me to Hell?” “Why does God always seem so angry?” “Why doesn’t God just leave me alone?” “What I am doing is what most others are doing, why judge me?”
Here are five Biblical Truths about the wrath of God:
#1. God’s wrath is just.
It has become common for many to argue that the God of the Old Testament is a moral monster that He is by no means worthy of worship.
But, the fact is, God’s wrath is said to be in perfect accord with God’s justice.
Romans 2:5-6 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: (KJV) . . . God’s wrath is in perfect proportion to human sinfulness. God’s wrath is His love in action against sin. God’s wrath is never the unpredictable, self-indulgent, irritable, morally dishonorable thing that human anger so often is. God’s wrath is a right and needed reaction to all evil.
#2. God’s wrath is to be feared.
God’s wrath is to be feared because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (KJV) God’s wrath is to be feared because we are justly condemned sinners without Christ. Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (KJV) God’s wrath is to be feared because He is powerful enough to do all that He promises (Jer.32:17). God’s wrath is to be feared because God promises eternal punishment if a person rejects Christ Jesus. Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (KJV)
3. God’s wrath is consistent in the Old and New Testaments.
So many people think that the Old Testament God as mean, harsh and wrath-filled, and the God of the New Testament as kind, patient and loving. Neither one of these beliefs represent the Scripture’s teaching on the wrath of God, because there are scary descriptions of the wrath of God in both the Old and the New Testament. Dear one, God must act fairly and judge sin, or else God would not be God.
Jeremiah 30:23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. (KJV)
Nahum 1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. (KJV)
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (KJV)
Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (KJV)
4. God’s wrath is His perfect and righteous love in action against sin.
God is love, and He does all things for His honor and glory. If He, in His wrath, did not bring down judgment on sin, He would be a Liar, and we could not trust Him. God hates sin, and He does NOT lie, so it is only right that His wrath is raised when we sin.
1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (KJV)
Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. (KJV)
God doing all things for His honor and glory is a most scary reality for many and it is certainly not good news for sinners. Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (KJV)
Think about these if you do not know Jesus as your Saviour:
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire. (KJV)
Psalm 76:7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry? (KJV)
Psalm 90:11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. (KJV)
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (KJV)
Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. (KJV)
God must act fairly and judge sin, or else God would not be God. God’s perfect love motivates His wrath against sin.
5. God’s wrath is satisfied in Christ, and only Christ.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (KJV)
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV)
Romans 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (KJV)
1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. (KJV)
1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. (KJV)
Only Jesus can save us from God’s wrath. In saving us from His own wrath, God has done what we could not do, sent His only begotten Son to save us . . . and in doing so, He has done what we do NOT deserve. Thank You Father for Your awesome love. Thank You Jesus that You obeyed Your Father and came to save us. Thank You, thank You, thank You!!!
