Wrath (Romans 5:9, 1 Thessalonians 1:10)Tommy Boring, March 8, 2020
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When one studies the Old Testaments you’ll see that God was wrathful. He hasn’t changed and is still wrathful. Wrath when studied you’ll see that it means fierce. Psalm 88:6, Isah 2:9 we see it written describing God’s wrath and it being fierce. Now God is love and His wrath is not meant to be hatred. At some point people got to notion that God was to look like a white bearded grandfather. However He is not like you and me as He is eternal and never ages.
When we lash out and take vengeance upon someone or something we do it in hatred which means we do it in sin. We see in the story of Moses that God rolled the sea back for the people to cross on dry ground and then He let the sea go. It took the lives of the solders chasing the children. Fierce!
Another time we see Moses begging God not to destroy the people. God showed mercy at that time. God was completely justified in doing that.
God sent an angel and it killed thousands in the blink of an eye.
God controls the breath of each and every persons. There’s not a single person that can say that they will live. Every day God takes people home, young and old, rich and poor. How can God be good in that? How can He be destructive, a God of wrath?
If there wasn’t a bad then how could you say there a good? How does one know love if there wasn’t hate? Humans are the only thing that deviates because God gave them a choice. God create animals with a nature and they do not deviate from that nature.
The tornadoes that took place in Nashville, God created it. There were people that lost their lives during this storm. Truth - there were people leaving this world prior to that since the beginning of time. Nothing has changed. The nature of a person is sinful and does not want a god to control them. Therefore the human nature wants to blame God for those deaths. Why do bad things happen to good people? Because we are ALL people and we will all suffer.
We do not deserve anything that we call good that God does for us. What we deserve is to die in our sins and suffer the consequences of that sin. Some. Christians will sit and declare that we are holy because we because we are a Christian. Only what’s inside makes us different and nothing more.
Romans 5:6-9 Nothing changed with the humans. When Jesus came and gave His life for the sins of the world ONLY if they would believe in Him.
Isa 53:1-12, God hasn’t changed, He just poured it all on Jesus and said that the believer could go free.
