The God of the Bible

We have forgotten about the wrath of God. A friend saw a bumper sticker and you know what it said on it? “Jesus is coming and He is as mad as hell.” Sacrilege? No. II Thessalonians 1 says, He is coming in flaming fire in judgment on this
world. In other words, He’s as mad as hell. May be it is a bad way of putting it, but it’s the truth. You see, we are all looking for “gentle Jesus meek and mild.” The attitude of the average Christian today is relax and be raptured. But He is coming with flaming vengeance on this world. There is a time when His Spirit’s forbearance runs out. There is going to be a day of the vengeance of God. And when God gets angry you’ve no idea what it is. Like a thousand volcanoes exploding. He has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world – Leonard Ravenhill

It is amazing that God offers any of salvation, even at the expense of His own sinless son. Yet when the day of grace has been sinned away there is nothing left but judgment and damnation. That goes double for those who hold the truth in unrighteousness.  The God of the Bible:

  • Reigned down fire on Sodom for their greed and sexual sin
  • Turned lots wife into a pillar of salt for looking back at Sodom
  • Sent a flood to kill every man, woman, and child, save eight who found favor in His sight
  • Stirred the heart of the king of Babylon to ravage the temple and professed people so that the women were left to boil the corpses of their own children in the streets of Jerusalem

2 Thessalonians 1:7 ..the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

2Thessalonians 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Revelation 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

2Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

The God of the Bible kills people! Not the popular “god” of the vivid imaginations of this generation of confused men and women, but the God of the Bible, Who at the same time is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. This God Who kills people, Who threatens to do so, Who evinces His character by His wrath..

I am glad God’s Holy Spirit is still running down sinners, stabbing them in their hearts, and reproving them of their ungodly conduct and warning them of the Judgment and Hell to come, and pointing them to cease from trusting in self and cast all their confidence in the bloody Son of God hanging on the cross!..

This God that preachers make fun of, this Holy God. This God Who says, “I warn you: I kill and I make alive.” This God Who is the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you know what He did? He wiped off the face of the earth nearly three billion souls with a flood and sent them all to Hell. That is the God of the Bible! That is the God that kills people;  -Rolfe Barnard

 

This is the God who’s word says the last days church will not put up with sound doctrine, they will gather ear tickling teachers and prophets, embrace the teachings of demons, seek after false christs, false gospels, hate the truth of Gods word and character, and ultimately be handed over to a delusion so powerful that they can no longer be saved. This describes a good part of western christianity. [edit]

    This should give us pause. Even the very elect will be decieved if possible Jesus said. Nothing but a clinging to Him, as revealed in scripture and testified by the Holy Spirit will do.

    I noticed something that I’ve never noticed in your posting of 2 Thessalonians 2:11:

    “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

    This is the message of cheap grace, say a prayer, continue to live sinfully (have pleasure in unrighteousness), here’s your get to heaven free card! THIS IS THE STRONG DELUSION!
