When most people think of the anger of God, they think about the wrathful God depicted in the Old Testament. This is understandable, as this is one of the most commonly portrayed aspects of God’s anger. However, does this mean that God only gets angry when humans do something wrong? In this blog post, we will explore the anger of God in the Bible. We will also see that it is far more complex than simply being a reaction to human sinfulness.
What is the Anger of God Like?
First, it is important to understand that the anger of God is not something that is exclusive to the Old Testament. In fact, we see examples of God’s anger throughout the entire Bible. For instance, in the New Testament book of Revelation, we see a clear example of God’s wrath being poured out on those who have refused to repent of their sin (Revelation 14:19).
Second, we see that the anger of God is not always directed at humans. In fact, many times it is directed at spiritual beings, such as demons and angels. For example, in the book of Jude, we see an instance where God was angry with a group of fallen angels who had abandoned their posts in heaven (Jude 6).
Third, the anger of God is not always a bad thing. In fact, there are many times when it is actually a good thing. For example, in the book of Exodus, we see that God’s anger was what led to him rescuing his people from slavery in Egypt (Exodus 14:14).
So, does God ever get angry? The answer is a resounding yes! However, it is important to understand that the anger of God is far more complex than simply being a reaction to human sinfulness.
