#61 Seven Things About the Wrath of God
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number sixty-one of this series, Seven Things About the Wrath of God.
The world speaks against the wrath of God. They see God as being unfair. If the wrath of God did not exist, God would not exist. Yes, Christians know that love and faithfulness make up God’s essence, but to uphold His love and faithfulness, righteousness and justice must also be the very essence of who God is. It is written in:
Ps 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
If I were to ask Christians why God set up His throne, not many would reply for justice, but it says in:
Ps 9:7 But the Lord sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for justice.
God must uphold his holiness, and He does so with His wrath. Furthermore, this wrath is only for the sons of disobedience. The children of God, in righteousness, will see the love of God.
Seven Things About the Wrath of God:
- God’s wrath has been known to everyone since the universe was created.
- God’s wrath falls only on the sons of disobedience.
- God’s wrath will exclude the unbeliever from heaven.
- God’s wrath will execute justice.
- God’s wrath will end after judgment day.
- God’s wrath is satisfied in the death of Jesus for Christians.
- God’s wrath will be executed by angels.
God’s wrath is revealed in the heavens therefore, while each of mankind is alive it stands as a merciful warning to turn and be saved. The unbeliever can turn to God and the Christian can rejoice and stand as a witness to God’s steadfast love.
