Why does God become so angry? Is He not a loving God?
‘…God our Saviour, …wants all to be saved. and to come to the knowledge of the truth.’ 1 Timothy 2:3
His anger and wrath is rooted in man’s refusal to understand how important eternal life with Him is. God got very angry with the Israelites when they broke the Covenant because it was their ‘guarantee’ of eternal life,
‘And if we are careful to obey all this law before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.’ Deuteronomy 6:25
The apex of God’s wrath will be in future,
‘..Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand.’ Revelation 6:16
People who refuse to be saved from eternal punishment by faith in Jesus, cause His anger. God makes the Gospel available to the very end,
‘Then I saw another angel flying in mid-air, and he had the eternal Gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people.’ Revelation 14:6
God wants people to have the security of an eternal stay in the Kingdom of peace, love, harmony and fellowship. Therefore He becomes angry when people do not understand and accept His concerns.
