WRATH of GOD

 

Ezekiel 25:17

King James Version

17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them 

with furious rebukes; 

and they shall know that I am the Lord, 

when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.


The whole Bible speaks of GOD's love.

And yet, it also speaks of GOD's wrath.

At man's sin, disobedience, pride, greed, vanity, and idolatry.

After the flood, GOD made a covenant with Noah:

Genesis 9:11

King James Version

11 And I will establish my covenant with you, 

neither shall all flesh be cut off any more 

by the waters of a flood; 

neither shall there any more be a flood 

to destroy the earth.


Genesis 9:13-15

King James Version

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, 

when I bring a cloud over the earth, 

that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, 

which is between me and you 

and every living creature of all flesh; 

and the waters shall no more become a flood 

to destroy all flesh.


Yes, there will be no more flood.

But even so, man continues to sin.

This time, we shall perish by fire.

For this is the nature of GOD:

Exodus 24:17

King James Version

17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord 

was like devouring fire 

on the top of the mount 

in the eyes of the children of Israel.


Hebrews 12:28-29

King James Version

28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom 

which cannot be moved, 

let us have grace, 

whereby we may serve God acceptably 

with reverence and godly fear:

29 For our God is a consuming fire.


It's time to know what angers GOD, and what He is capable of.

Because the Bible is replete with instances of GOD's wrath, at man's unrepentant spirit, for this post, we share what JESUS and His PROPHETS say:

Isaiah 13:6-13

King James Version

6 Howl ye; 

for the day of the Lord is at hand; 

it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, 

and every man's heart shall melt:

8 And they shall be afraid: 

pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; 

they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: 

they shall be amazed one at another; 

their faces shall be as flames.

9 Behold, 

the day of the Lord cometh, 

cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, 

to lay the land desolate: 

and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof 

shall not give their light: 

the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, 

and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

11 And I will punish the world for their evil, 

and the wicked for their iniquity; 

and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, 

and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; 

even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, 

and the earth shall remove out of her place, 

in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, 

and in the day of his fierce anger.


Isaiah 26:21

King James Version

21 For, behold, 

the Lord cometh out of his place 

to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: 

the earth also shall disclose her blood, 

and shall no more cover her slain.


Micah 1:1-5

King James Version

1 The word of the Lord that came to Micah the Morasthite 

in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, 

which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.

2 Hear, all ye people; 

hearken, O earth, 

and all that therein is: 

and let the Lord God be witness against you, 

the Lord from his holy temple.

3 For, behold, 

the Lord cometh forth out of his place, 

and will come down, 

and tread upon the high places of the earth.

4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, 

and the valleys shall be cleft, 

as wax before the fire, 

and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.

5 For the transgression of Jacob is all this, 

and for the sins of the house of Israel. 

What is the transgression of Jacob? 

is it not Samaria? 

and what are the high places of Judah? 

are they not Jerusalem?


Nahum 1:2-6

King James Version

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.

3 The Lord is slow to anger, 

and great in power,

 and will not at all acquit the wicked: 

the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, 

and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, 

and drieth up all the rivers: 

Bashan languisheth, 

and Carmel, 

and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

5 The mountains quake at him, 

and the hills melt, 

and the earth is burned at his presence, 

yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

6 Who can stand before his indignation? 

and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? 

his fury is poured out like fire, 

and the rocks are thrown down by him.


Malachi 4

King James Version

4 For, behold, 

the day cometh, 

that shall burn as an oven; 

and all the proud, 

yea, and all that do wickedly, 

shall be stubble: 

and the day that cometh shall burn them up, 

saith the Lord of hosts, 

that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name 

shall the Sun of righteousness arise 

with healing in his wings; 

and ye shall go forth, 

and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; 

for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet 

in the day that I shall do this, 

saith the Lord of hosts.

4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, 

which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, 

with the statutes and judgments.

5 Behold, 

I will send you Elijah the prophet 

before the coming 

of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, 

and the heart of the children to their fathers, 

lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.


Matthew 13:30

King James Version

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: 

and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 

Gather ye together first the tares, 

and bind them in bundles to burn them: 

but gather the wheat into my barn.


Matthew 13:38-43

King James Version

38 The field is the world; 

the good seed are the children of the kingdom; 

but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; 

the harvest is the end of the world; 

and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered 

and burned in the fire; 

so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, 

and they shall gather out of his kingdom 

all things that offend, 

and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: 

there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun 

in the kingdom of their Father. 

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


Matthew 24:14

King James Version

14 And this gospel of the kingdom 

shall be preached in all the world 

for a witness unto all nations; 

and then shall the end come.


Luke 13:3

King James Version

3 I tell you, 

Nay: but, except ye repent, 

ye shall all likewise perish.


John 3:35-36

King James Version

35 The Father loveth the Son, 

and hath given all things into his hand.

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.


2 Peter 3:10-12

King James Version

10 But the day of the Lord will come 

as a thief in the night; 

in the which the heavens shall pass away 

with a great noise, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, 

the earth also and the works that are therein 

shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, 

what manner of persons ought ye to be 

in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming 

of the day of God, 

wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

God created the heaven and the earth.


How many people really know GOD?

The Lord, The Lord God, 

merciful and gracious, 

longsuffering, 

and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 Keeping mercy for thousands,

unto the third and to the fourth generation.


Numbers 23:19

and loveth the stranger, 

in giving him food and raiment.


2 Samuel 22:25-28

King James Version

25 Therefore the Lord hath recompensed me 

according to my righteousness; 

according to my cleanness in his eye sight.

that thou mayest bring them down.
