 God's wrath

God’s Anger

Amos 8:1-12          1  The Lord God showed me a vision, and behold, there was a basket of overripe summer fruit.  2  He said, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A basket of summer fruit.” Then the Lord said to me, “The end has come for My people Israel. I will spare them no longer for the nation is ripe for judgment. 3 On that day, the songs of the palace shall turn to wailing,” says the Lord God. “There will be many dead bodies; in silence they will throw them everywhere.” 4 Hear this, you who trample down the needy, and do away with the poor of the land,  5  “When will the New Moon festival be over so we may sell grain, and the Sabbath ended, that we may open the wheat market, making the ephah (measure) smaller and the shekel bigger (that is, selling less for a higher price,) and to cheat by falsifying the scales.  6  We may buy the poor (as slaves) for silver (since they are unable to support themselves,) and the needy for a pair of sandals, also that we may sell the leftovers of the wheat (as if it were a good grade of grain)?”  7 The Lord has sworn (an oath) by the pride of Jacob, “surely I shall never forget (nor leave unpunished) any of their rebellious acts. 8 “Because of this (coming judgment) will the land not quake and everyone mourn who dwells in it?  Indeed, all of it shall rise up like the Nile, and it will be tossed around (rom the impact of judgment) and (afterward) subside again like the Nile of Egypt.  9 “It shall come about in that day,” says the Lord God, “that I shall cause the sun to go down at noon, and I shall darken the earth in broad daylight.  10  “ I shall turn your festivals and feasts into mourning and all your songs into dirges (funeral poems to be sung); and I shall cause sackcloth to be clothing for everyone,  and baldness on every head (shaved for mourning).  I shall make that time like a time of mourning for an only son (who has died), and the end of it shall be like a bitter day. 11  “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God, “when I will send hunger over the land, not hunger for bread or a thirst for water, But rather (a hunger) for hearing the word of the Lord.  12  “People shall stagger from sea to sea (to the very ends of the earth) and from the north even to the east; they will roam here and there to seek the word of the Lord (longing for it as essential for life), but they will not find it.

Daniel 12:1  1 “At that (end) time Michael, the great Arc Angel, who stands guard over the children of your people, will arise.  There will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until the distress; but at the time of distress, your people, everyone who is found written in the Book of Life, will be rescued.    Matthew 13:43  43 Then the righteous (those who do what is right) will shine forth radiating the new life like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.  He who has ears to hear, let him hear and listen to My words.      Daniel 12: 4-10   4 conceal these words and seal up the scroll until the end of time. Many will go back and forth and search anxiously (through the scroll), about knowledge of the actions of God as revealed by His prophets.” 5 Then I, Daniel, saw two men standing by the river, 6  one on each bank, and behold, there stood one man on this bank of the river and the other man on that bank of the river.  One man asked an angel, who was standing further upstream, “How long will it be until the end of these wonders?” 7  The angel, dressed in linen,  held up his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and a half a time (three and a half years); as soon as they finish shattering and crushing the power of the people, all these things will be finished. 8  I heard, but I did not understand; so I said, “My lord, what will be the outcome of these things?” 9 The angel said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are concealed and sealed up until the end of time. 10  Many  persons will be purged, purified (made whole) and refined, but the wicked will behave wickedly. None of the wicked shall understand, but those who are spiritually wise will understand.         Daniel 11:33-35  33 They who are wise and have spiritual insight among the people will instruct many and help them understand; yet for many days some of them and their followers will fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by plunder. 34 Now when they fall they will receive a little help, and many dishonest persons will join with them. 35 Some of those who are spiritually wise and have insight will fall as martyrs in order to refine, to purge and to make those among God’s people pure, until the end time; because it is yet to come at the time appointed by God.          Daniel 2:11-12.   11 From the time that the regular sacrifice, the daily burnt offering, is taken away, to the abomination of desolation, the ruining the temple in Jerusalem for worship of the true God, there will be 1,290 days.  12  How blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and beloved is he who waits expectantly (enduring without wavering) for the period of tribulation comes to the 1,335 days!      

 Daniel 11:31-32    31 Armed forces of satan will arise (in Jerusalem) and defile and desecrate the sanctuary, the spiritual stronghold, and will do away with the regular sacrifice, the daily burnt offering; and they will set up an evil altar in the sanctuary.  This is the abomination of desolation. 32 By smooth words they will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action.

Daniel 12:13 But as for you (Daniel), go your way until the end of your normal life; for you will rest and rise again for your allotted inheritance at the end of the age.”            Psalm 119:33-40   34 Let me have understanding, that I may observe God’s commandments, and keep them with all my heart.

Exodus 20:1-17  1 Then God spoke all these words: 2  I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;   3 you shall have no other gods before me.  4 You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, 6 but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments. 7 You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses His name. 8 Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10 But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it. 12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. 13 You shall not murder.  14 You shall not commit adultery. 15 You shall not steal. 16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 17 You shall not covet (desire) your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet (desire) your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.  

Revelation 6:13-17    13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree drops its winter fruit when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The sky vanished like a scroll rolling itself up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the magnates and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, 16 calling to the mountains and rocks, “fall on us and hide us from the face of the one seated on the throne and from the anger of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their anger has come, and who is able to stand?”

Mark 13:24-27, 30-33   24  “In those days, after that suffering, the sun will be darkened,  and the moon will not give its light, 25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, 26 Then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in clouds’ with great power and glory. 27 Then He will send out the angels, and gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven 30  I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. 32 “But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Beware, keep alert; for you do not know when the time will come.

Mark 13: 5-6, 9-11, 13, 21-23   5 Then Jesus began to say to them, “be aware that no one leads you astray. 6 Many will come in My name and say, ‘I am He!’ and they will lead many astray.   9 “As for yourselves, beware; for they will hand you over to councils; and you will be beaten in synagogues; and you will stand before governors and kings because of Me, as a testimony to them. 10  God’s word  must first be proclaimed to all nations. 11 When they bring you to trial and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say; but say whatever is given you at that time, for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of God will take over.  13 You will be hated by all because of My name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 21  If anyone says to you at that time, ‘Look! Here is the Messiah!’ or ‘Look! There He is!’—do not believe it.   22 False messiahs and false prophets will appear and produce signs and omens, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23  Be alert; I have already told you everything.        Revelation 12:10,12,17   10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming, “Now have come the salvation and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Messiah, for (satan,) who blames our comrades, has been thrown down, who blames them day and night before our God.  12 Rejoice then, you heavens, and those who dwell in them! But pain and agony to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great anger, because he knows that his time is short!” 17 Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus.         Revelation13:1,4-8    1  I saw a beast rising out of the sea.  The whole earth followed the beast. 4 They worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to this beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like this beast, and who can fight against it?” 5 The beast was given a mouth uttering arrogant and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. 6  It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7  It was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them.  It was given authority over every tribe and people and language and nation, 8 and all the inhabitants of the earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the Lambs book of life

Revelation 13:11-18   11 Then I saw a second beast that rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. 12  It exercises all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed. 13 It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of all; 14  By the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the beast, it deceives the inhabitants of earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived; 15 It was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast could even speak and cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, (this does not include those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life,).  17  Persons cannot buy or sell unless they have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name 666.

Revelation 11:2-12   2 Do not measure the court outside the temple (in Jerusalem;) leave that out, for it is given over to the evil nations, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.  3   I, Jesus Christ, will grant authority to My two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days (three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth.”   4 These witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth. 5  If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouth and devours their enemies; who must be killed in this manner. 6 These two witnesses have the power from God to shut up the sky,  that no rain will fall during the days of their prophesying about judgment and salvation; and they have power over the waters (seas, rivers) to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every (kind of) plague, as often as they wish.  7 When they have finished their testimony and given their evidence, the beast that comes up out of the abyss (bottomless pit) will wage war with them, and overcome them and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie exposed in the open street of the great city (Jerusalem), which in a spiritual sense is called by the symbolic and allegorical names of Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. 9 Those from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.   10 Those non-believers who live on the earth will gloat over them and rejoice; and they will send gifts, in celebration, to one another because these two prophets tormented and troubled those who live on the earth.  11  After three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear and panic fell on those who were watching them. 12  The two witnesses heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” Then they ascended into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them.  13  In that very hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell and was destroyed; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were overcome with terror, and they glorified the God of heaven since they recognized His awesome power.

Revelation 14:9-13   9 Then another angel, a third, followed them, shouting in a loud voice, “Those who worship the beast and its image, and receive a mark on their foreheads or on their hands, 10 they will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and they will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.  11 The smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image and for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”  12 Here is a call for the endurance of God’s chosen persons who are successful, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them.”          Revelation 16: 2, 8-162 The first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and painful sores came on those who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped its image. 8 The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to burn evil people with fire; 9 They were burned by the fierce heat, but they cursed the name of God, who had authority over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory. 10 The fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness; people gnawed their tongues in agony, 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and sores, and they did not repent of their behavior. 12 The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up in order to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13 And I saw three evil, spirits like frogs, one coming from the mouth of the dragon, one coming from the mouth of the beast, and one from the mouth of the false prophet. 14 These are demonic spirits, performing signs, and move abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.   15 (“I, Jesus Christ, will arrive  like a thief!  Blessed is the one who stays awake and is clothed not going about naked and exposed to shame.”) 16 And the armies assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armagedon.           Revelation 19:19-21   19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against the rider (Jesus Christ) on the horse, and against His army.    20  The beast was captured, along with the false prophet who had performed in its presence the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. 21 The rest were killed by the sword of the rider on the horse, the sword that came from his mouth.

 Revelation 16:17-21   17 The seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18  There came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a violent earthquake, such as had not occurred since people were upon the earth, so violent was that earthquake. 19 The great city was split into three parts, and the cities in the nations fell. God remembered great Babylon and gave her the wine-cup of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island disappeared, and no mountains were to be found; 21  Large  hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, dropped from heaven on people, and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, so terrible was that plague.

 Revelation 20:2-15  2 An Angel seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the pit, and locked and sealed it over him, so that he would deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be let out for a little while. 4 Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them were given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him a thousand years 7 When the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will come out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth with all evil forces to be gathered for battle against Jesus Christ; they are as numerous as the sands of the sea. 9 They marched up over the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city  (Jerusalem) . And fire came down from heaven and consumed them. 10 The devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. 11 Then I saw a great white throne and the one who sat on it; the earth and the heaven disappeared, and could not be seen anywhere. 12  I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, the book of life. And the dead were judged according to their deeds as recorded in the books. 13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it.  In Death and Hades, evil forces, many of the dead were found in them.  All evil dead were judged according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades evil dead were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; 15 and anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.        Revelation 21:1-3, 7-8    1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them, the water of life. 7 Those who conquer will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, the murderers, the fornicators, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all the evil teachers, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

“God’s Anger”  is written by Ronald Edwin Matteson, an 87 year old Christian,
