It is uncommon to hear someone talk about the wrath of God. In particular, I’ve never heard a sermon about it.
This seems to be a haunting subject in the churches. As if the fear of losing members compels pastors to omit this subject.
The mercy, love and grace of God are always on the agenda of the pulpit. These are attractive subjects that satisfy all audiences.
They do not bother anyone. Not even hell.
Instead, they are moving and create the sensation that, in the end, God the Father will open up the gates to everyone.
It is hard to imagine the wrath of God whose Word says He is love. I John 4:8-16.
But the fact is that He is both love and justice. And will never tolerate injustice or sin.
Those who know and believe the truth, but live a lie, are playing with faith.
Israel angered the LORD with foolish thoughts, believing the observance of religious traditions compensated for their sins.
This is what has happened among many believers. They think the love and grace of God cancel their sinful nature.
They forget that,
The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty… Numbers 14:18
No one should lean on God’s benevolence and compassion to keep himself in sin, because the wrath of God will be revealed to the rebellious, children of disobedience.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Ephesians 5:6
May you all be blessed in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
