“Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until His wrath has passed by. See, the Lord is coming out of His dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the bloodshed on it; the earth will conceal its slain no longer. (Isiah 26:20-21)
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! Who would have thought in 2020, we would still be living in divided countries with racism, discrimination and injustice? We are experiencing hurricanes and wildfires that are burning down entire communities. We have first responders, families and volunteers searching for life and remains. We have tornados, tsunamis, catastrophic floods and still experiencing millions of deaths from the coronavirus. We have police officers murdering and brutalizing citizens, and citizens murdering and brutalizing police officers.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! Let us not forget the increase murders in communities with innocent bystanders caught in crossfires without mass protests; at least not shown by the news media. There is no doubt some of those people died outside of Christ; and now their souls await the Judgment. We have unpeaceful protesters and looters taking away attention from the movement for lives that should also matter. We have secular governmental oversight committees, some spiritual leaders and Christians turning blind eyes to wickedness.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! “For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, [God-fearing Christians] what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner? So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.” (I Peter 4:17-19)
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! God-fearing Christians are governed by the commandments of God. Sadly, He would not have to come to His Church first if we were all God-fearing and obedient children. In solidarity, we should be accomplishing much more spiritually and leading lost souls to the Lord. If the shoes do not fit, please do not wear them; but instead, some of us are part of the problem. We fight, online and offline, amongst one another in front of sinners bringing reproach against God and His Church. Why? For causes and agendas of mankind who too must stand before God to be judged. Satan is very pleased! No wonder sinners are cynical of God and the gospel of Jesus when we make it so easy for them to feel that way.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! There was a certain person who appeared to be the most faithful, loyal and dedicated Christian in the congregation. The certain person was also well-loved in the community because nothing but their master’s words were shared. Before the church building doors were unlocked, the certain person was there waiting for saints to arrive. During the minister’s sermons, the certain person was the only one who verbally agreed with Amen. After the church building doors were locked, everyone, except the certain person, got into their cars and left the premises. However, the certain person stayed outside to continue sharing their master’s word with those who walked by the building.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! The certain person identifies as a Christian but loyalty is to their master, Satan. One command, that is all Adam and Eve had to obey, one command! Now look at the state of mankind! The certain person faithfully obeys the one commandment received from their master to leave no souls behind for Heaven. Sadly, the certain person acts the part of a faithful, God-fearing child of God, while simultaneously vying for the Christian Academy Award for best actor in the movie called Hypocrisy?
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! Are we playing roles of an unrighteous Christian on social media and a righteous Christian amongst saints? Hypocrites and actors must stay on script to play their assigned characters so well that others must believe they are someone else to be liked, loved, or hated. Some actors wear their make-up and costumes for so long it become difficult for them to come out of character and back to reality. Be mindful, God-fearing Christians cannot serve two masters, either we will hate the one and love the other, or we will be devoted to the one and despise the other. (Matthew 6:24)
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! We must be mindful that in every moment of the day, there is a war going on for our souls; therefore, we must be alert and not become vulnerable targets for the devil and his demonic staff. In my secular position, at the end of each fiscal year, it is suggested, not mandatory, that I turn in a self-assessment of how well, in my opinion, I performed my duties during the past fiscal year/performance cycle.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! But in my spiritual position which is being obedient and leading souls to Christ, I am required to perform daily, not yearly, self-examinations, to ensure that I, Tangie, am doing what is mandatory to leave no souls behind from going to Heaven? “Examine ourselves to see whether we are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test.” (II Corinthians 13:5)
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! I am very much aware that not everyone will die in Christ, but for us God-fearing Christians, are we as dedicated to our Master spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to leave no souls Hell bound? Christians are not actors and should always stay in character as shining light leading souls from this dark and wicked world, while not jeopardizing our own soul. Are we as faithful and loyal to our Father, God, as sinners are to their father, Satan? Regardless of what anyone else is doing, we are governed by the gospel of Jesus Christ, and should be known by our spiritual fruit, not for competing for the award of best insider threat to congregations better known as wolves in sheep clothing.
God Is Angry! He Is So Angry! I have no doubt that He feels the same way now that He felt in Genesis 6:5-6, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.”
God is Angry! He Is So Angry! “Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14-15)
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
Are we complicit in the ungodly and wrongful acts of mankind? Are our souls packed with righteousness to leave this wicked and adulterous generation? Where do our convictions lie? Who has our loyalty? Are our spiritual journeys approved by God?
