Is a wrathful God a wonderful Father?

The Bible’s description of God, 

‘I will proclaim the Name of the Lord.  Oh, praise the greatness of our God!  He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just.  A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.’  Deuteronomy 32:3,4

The above is a bit confusing when reading the following,

‘Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever.’  Revelation 15:7

The difference is this: God’s wrath is directed towards those who refuse to believe the truth, who refuse to embrace eternal life, given by God only through Jesus.  God is angry because people, in their obstinacy, prefer eternal hell rather than His eternal glorious Kingdom of love, peace and harmony.  

In the end, we see how wonderful a loving Father is.  He protects His Family by removing the troublemakers.   This verse explains, 

‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them [that is the elect, saved by the Lamb].  They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’  Revelation 21:3b,4

God will then, completely free of any outside bad influence, pour out His generosity and love on His people.  Those who might disturb that special relationship will by then have been removed: the devil and his demons are in the lake of burning sulphur.  The rebels, the troublemakers, will be with the devil.  Revelation 20:10,15 

Our conclusion 

Scripture reveals a perfect Father who cares for His people, 

‘…His called, chosen and faithful followers.’  Revelation 17:14b

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

One thought on “Is a wrathful God a wonderful Father?”

  1. This is such a rich subject covered by many layers Gerard. It requires a long deep dive into the inner depths of the thinking of God when He decided to create man. A subject worthy of writing a book, and not a casual commentary.
