Thank You for the gift of another blessed week and the privilege to be all You have made us to be. We worship You Lord, be Thou exalted forever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are doing? Glory be to God if I am to respond  to the question. How excellent is our God, His love is from everlasting to everlasting, He reigneth forever and ever. No one can be compared with Him. He is Awesome, He is Wonderful, and He is Great.

Are you connected to what I have just listed above dearly beloved? Notwithstanding what you are going through, God is not short of all that we have mentioned above. One of the Attributes of God is that He is “JUST.”

One of the dictionary meanings of “Just” is “Fair and Impartial,” “Morally Correct.”  “Justice” is fairness or reasonableness, in the legal system it means the act of applying or upholding law. It can also refer to a judge of higher court.

When we refer God as a God of Justice it means that God is fair and reasonable in upholding the law or legal system while “indignation” is anger at unfairness.  So when we say “Righteous Indignation.” It means a demonstration of a “just anger against unfairness.”

The word “wrath” brings to mind a state of “fury” or “outburst”. In the Bible we read about the God’s “wrath” either against the children of Israel or other nations. The God we serve do not hold behold iniquity neither does He overlook sin.

Beloved, as God’s children we must be ready not to incur His “wrath” by disobeying His commandments, statues and laws. We must live righteously and purge ourselves from every unrighteous else we bring untold hardship to our self and our generations. (Gen 26:5, Ex 15:26,Ex 20:6, Lev 26:1-46).

Beloved, we must flee from all appearance of evil and keep our self Holy before God for does not overlook any iniquity though He can look over it.

Come on with me to learn more:

2 Kings 19:20-21:26, Psalm 78:48-55, Proverbs 17:7-8, Acts 9:23-43

Righteous Indignation

He sent His burning anger against them: fury, indignation, and calamity.—Psalm 78:49

For many of us, “wrath” conjures up the idea of being out of control, an outburst of “seeing red,” a sense of wounded pride or just downright petulance. But it is quite wrong to take these ideas or feelings and impose them on God. God’s wrath is never out of control, never capricious, never self-indulgent, never irritable, and never ignoble. These may be indicative of human anger but never of the divine. God is angry only when anger is called for.

Even among men and women, there is such a thing as righteous indignation, though (in my opinion) it is more rare than we think.

I used to believe the difference between righteous indignation and carnal hostility was this: when someone was angry with me, that was carnal hostility; when I was angry with someone else, that was righteous indignation! I have “grown out” of that opinion now, I hasten to add.

All God’s indignation is righteous. It is grief at what is happening to others, not a grudge because of what is happening to Him. Would a God who took as much pleasure in evil as He did in good be a God we could love? Would a God who did not react adversely to evil be morally perfect? Of course not. It is precisely this adverse reaction to evil that the Bible has in mind when it talks about God’s wrath. God cannot treat good and evil alike. He can look over it—look over it to the Cross where it can be forgiven—but He cannot overlook it.

Prayer       

O God, the more I see the reason behind Your wrath and the more I consider the purity of its motive, the more praise and adoration I want to give. What a great and wonderful God You are. And how glad I am You looked over my sin. Amen.

Isa 13:1-22; Ps 78:40-55; Isa 30:27; Rm 1:18

How does the psalmist describe God’s wrath?

How did Isaiah depict God’s anger toward Babylon?

beloved, did you read it “All God’s indignation is righteous.” Let us therefore ask the Spirit of God to help our infirmities that we will not sin against God but live righteously to be blessed and not to incur his wrath.

On this note we declare this week open and as we walk through may God uphold us and lead us in His righteousness and uprightness. We will return with greater testimonies at the end in Jesus Name.
