The Wrath of God

(Romans 11:7–10)

What is God like? To find out, the best place to go is to the Holy Scriptures. In the Bible, God has revealed to us who He is. Based upon what I have heard over the years many have an incomplete perception of who God is, according to how the Bible describes Him. I have heard God described as being good, kind, loving, gracious, merciful, and that is all true; however, I seldom hear that God is holy, righteous, just, hates sin, and will not overlook it. When was the last time you heard a message upon the wrath of God? It will be a fearful time for unrepentant sinners when they stand before Almighty God on the Day of Judgment. Not everyone is going to Heaven! As a matter of fact, Jesus let us know how rare that will be when He said, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and ONLY A FEW FIND IT.” (Matthew 7:13, 14) Let Jesus’ words sink in. How unusual it is for a person to avoid destruction and find life. This is found in the Sermon on the Mount. It may surprise you to know that Jesus spoke more about hell than any other person in the Bible. Hell is described by such words in the Bible as “lake of fire,” “eternal destruction,” and “eternal fire.” Just read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) which describe what Jesus both said and did. Check it out for yourself. Jesus said in Matthew 10:28 “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Jesus also said in Matthew 18:8–9, that it is better to be maimed, crippled, or sightless than to be thrown in Hell. This is just a sampling.

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches. (Matthew 13:31-32)
