The Fierce Anger of God!

Click here to listen to blog

You disgraceful nation, gather around, before it's too late. The Lord has set a time when his fierce anger will strike like a storm and sweep you away.

If you humbly obey the Lord, then come and worship him. If you do right and are humble, perhaps you will be safe on that day when the Lord turns loose his anger.

Zephaniah 2:1-3

It is not very pleasant to think about the "fierce anger" of God. In fact, modern theology has pretty much eliminated the idea of God getting angry from our way of thinking. Didn't the sacrifice of Jesus satisfy the anger of God so that now everything is peace and love?

Jesus died for people not for countries. God did not make a way for all the people of - and you name the country - to be saved! Your salvation is individual, not because you are the citizen of even a Godly nation! There is nothing in the Bible that would give any nation a pass when it comes to the judgment of God on this earth.

Godly nations are blessed and ungodly nations do not prosper unless in prospering they fulfill a purpose of God. Those who are in the most jeopardy are nations that once honored God, but now have turned away. It is foolish to believe that the nation in which you live is simply ignored by God.

The reason for you to encourage your nation to turn back to and honor God is not for your own sake or your own blessing. You should encourage your fellow citizens to honor God because it is the right thing to do!

"Lord Jesus, You are to be praised and honored for who You are and for what You did. On the day you turn loose Your anger may my nation be one that is honoring You. Amen."
