    Ps 80:4 NKJV

    O Lord God of hosts, How long will You be angry, Against the prayer of Your people?

     

    Have you ever been in the presence of an angry person? I have seen people become so angry as the saying goes, "they could have bit a ten penny nail into." When you are around someone that is so angry that they lose control of reality it is scary. You don't know what they are going to do next and if it will hurt them or those around them. We all get angry over things but normally we control our anger but I have seen people incite others to anger and it is like setting off an explosion in them and all they want to do is to hurt or destroy something or someone. I have a friend that tells people that the reason that he gets angry is because he has Tabasco sauce running through his veins but we all know that even those that don't use Tabasco gets mad and angry. Anger is an emotion that is in everyone of us. It can be good so we can change things or bad if not controlled. Love is another emotion that dwells in each of us and it can be bad or good depending on the individual.

     

    The reason that I bring up these two emotions is because God is a God that possesses emotions, we were created in the image of God and that is why we have emotions of love and anger. People only want to think of God as the God of love and they are right in the fact that God is love and loves all of mankind. 1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

    (KJV) John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(KJV)  God is also a God that gets angry over the sins and rejection of His gift to mankind, Jesus. One day this God of love is going to show the emotion of anger upon mankind for the way they have lived their lives and the deeds they have done to others. Gen 6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.(KJV) We are living in the days called grace, that means that God is reaching out to all of mankind to repent and turn to Him through the salvation plan called Jesus. There is only one way to God and forgiveness and that is Jesus. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.(KJV) John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.(KJV) Today God reaches out with love unto mankind so they can be saved but one day He will be the God of anger and judgment. Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.(KJV)

    The choice is yours to make, which God do you want to stand before on Judgment day. Repent today and invite Jesus into your life and you will stand before the loving God and not the angry God.
