And God is angry with the wicked every day (Psalm 7:11 NKJV)
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgement on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. (Romans 13:1-6)
God is right and just to be angry at the wicked. He loves everyone and cannot be indifferent when people hurt and abuse others. He feels everybody’s pain out of love because our breaths come from him. When anybody is hurt, he is hurt. When people are hurt he is grieved out of his love for the victim. God hates evil, period.
A just God cannot be happy with the wicked because being happy with them means that he supports their evil ways. A lot of people who love to criticise God will wander why He should be angry or destroy. They ask such questions because they love to get away with every action and don’t want to be judged.
The same people who ask these questions are those who go to court here on earth to get justice and hail policemen when criminals are killed. You see how contradictory they are. They love earthly justice but hate spiritual justice.
Who is fooling who? God cannot be mocked or fooled. It is better for us to be as harmless and innocent as doves than to keep judging Christ and criticising God – it does not pay.
For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3:17
Who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? But even if you should suffer for doing what is right, how happy you are! Do not be afraid of anyone, and do not worry. But have reverence for Christ in your hearts, and honour him as Lord. 1 Peter 3:13
Peter says that even those who suffer for doing good should trust God. When we don’t trust, we criticise like we know better than God yet we can’t even create a life or cure terminal illnesses. The doubters love to think they are so wise and know better than the creator – funny logic. God will be God and human criticisms won’t stop Him from loving justice. The just pray for justice while the wicked hate justice.
God is angry with the wicked everyday and is patiently waiting for them to repent, if they don’t, their destination and end is guaranteed in hell. That is the word of God.
