Subject: Wrath of God
Brethren please share what is God's revelation to you on the "wrath of God" mentioned in   Revelation 16:1 "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the [b][u]wrath of God[/u][/b] upon the earth. "

Before our Lord poured His “wrath” we hear John the Baptist sounded this on the Jews, supposed to be God’s chosen people (physically speaking). Mat 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. 7 [size=18]But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees [/size]come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? We heard Jesus saying the same thing in: Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? The sects of the Pharisees and Sadducees were teeming with many followers. They had expressed their “love for the law” but in the eyes of our Lord – hypocrisy! They tainted these with religious traditions (as addition) and refused to submit to some (as deduction). This truth has not passed away with the 1001 sects Christianity has in our time. I hope I am correct that one reference to John’s baptism (immersion) is the TOTAL ACCEPTANCE of the written word (letter of the word) that composes the first witness to the truth. I made this conclusion when I read: Act 19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, Act 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, [size=18]We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. [/size]Act 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? [size=18]And they said, Unto John's baptism. [/size] Only a few of them accepted John’s baptism (Saul of Tarsus and others). The Holy Spirit’s revelation of His words, making up the second witness, cannot testify to the TRUTH without the first witness: 1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; [size=18]comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Wrath of God based on His jealousy: Exo 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: [b]for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: [/b] Jam 2:9 But [b]if ye have respect to persons[/b], ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. In the previous sects I joined, I was baptized in the belief that we were following John’s Baptism. Now I realized after finding the truth, before, I was either a Pharisee or a Sadducee who was sharply rebuked by John. I was not “totally immersed” in the written word of God for subscribing to the following having not seen the “wrath” of God with these abominable practices: Mat 23:8 But [b]be not ye called Rabbi[/b]: for one is your Master, even Christ; and [b]all ye are brethren[/b]. 9 And [b]call no man your father [/b]upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Psa 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: [b][u]holy[/u][/b] and [b][u]reverend is his name[/u][/b].

Wrath of God? During the time of Jesus Christ, there were murderers and thieves that caused misery to the people. [b]But wonder of wonders, why did He pour His indignation to the Scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 23? Are they not the epitome of godliness and righteousness that many people follow them? [/b][size=18]](The following is supposed to be in larger font.)[/size] Mat 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Mat 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: Mat 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. Mat 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. Mat 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, Mat 23:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, Mat 23:7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. Mat 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. Mat 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Mat 23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. Mat 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. Mat 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Mat 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. Mat 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. Mat 23:16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Mat 23:17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? Mat 23:18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Mat 23:19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? Mat 23:20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. Mat 23:21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. Mat 23:22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. Mat 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Mat 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Mat 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Mat 23:26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Mat 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Mat 23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Mat 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, Mat 23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Mat 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Mat 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. I found one connotation of wrath is righteous anger. Therefore to our Lord this is open rebuke, and it is written this is a show of LOVE: [size=18][color=red]Prov 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.[/color] [/size] There were two (2) kinds of listeners to our Lord: A. True to the intention, there were Scribes and Pharisees who were pricked in the heart, accepted the “offer of love,” and became followers of Christ. The “sharper than any twoedged sword,” (Heb 4:12) in the word became “sweet as honey to them.” (Psa 119:103) 1. Saul of Tarsus, a Pharisee 2. Nicodemus, a renown teacher of the law 3. The Scribe in Mark 12:28 4. And others B. But to the many, this condemnation triggered hatred for our Lord and plotted His crucifixion on the cross. Very clearly, these are they who are alluded to in the following: [color=blue] 2 Cor 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. [/color] The “wrath of God” written is true to these people: [color=blue]Revelation 16:1 "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth." [/color] One reference to “earth” are people as in Jer. 22:29. To these people, worse than the felons cited before are [size=18]“killers of souls,” [/size]while the former are only “[b]killers of the body[/b].” They are "spiritual thieves" [size=18]who rob God of honor and glory solely belonging to Him.[/size] Thus, “Wrath of God” therefore rightfully means anger, rage, fury, and indignation to whom “the vials” are directed. [size=12][/size] Jesus Christ is theTRUTH! Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today. Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.[size=12][/size][size=12][/size]
