Quotes (305)

God’s wrath is not a temporary loss of self-control or a selfish fit of emotion. It is His holy, white-hot hatred of sin, the reaction and revulsion of His holy nature against all that is evil. God’s wrath is tied in directly with His justice. It has to do with His righteous determination to punish every sin, to balance the scales of justice, and to make every wrong right. That is why the wrath of God “abides on” every unbeliever. The more men persist in sin, the more they are “storing up wrath for themselves in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.” God’s wrath will eventually be “poured out”; He is a righteous judge and will not allow sin to go unpunished forever.

– Charles Leiter

  1. This is so true and yet people are afraid to talk about God’s wrath as if it were a blight on God’s character. There is NO blight on God’s character! In Psalms 136 the whole chapter is dedicated to the mercy of God. After a comment the verse will carry on with, “for His mercy endures forever.” There are many verses where it talks about the Lord pouring out His wrath in a myriad of ways then goes on to say “for His mercy endures forever.”

    He struck Egypt’s firstborn, overthrew Pharoah, struck down great kings, slew famous kings, and rescued the Israelites from their enemies. He also gave the land that the famous kings had to the Israelites.

    It is so comforting to know that God’s attribute of wrath is interconnected with His attribute of mercy. One day God will pour out His wrath on those who hate Him and yet it will be used to show His children mercy. We won’t have to hear the hatred directed at our Saviour anymore. Praise the Lord! His mercy does indeed endure forever!
