People don’t want to believe in God’s wrath, but I assure you, it still exists in our New Testament times. Those of us who trust in Jesus have no worries because he has saved us. However, the world is full of evil, and disaster will come upon them for denying the power of God. When you read about the Old Testament disasters, you get a clear view of how powerful God is; he doesn’t play games. If you deny him, as many do today, he will impose his strength upon you, and you will either believe in him, or you will spend your eternity in hell. His wrath is not only for our afterlife, but it is in the here, and now, though many will say the power of weather has nothing to do with God and that it’s just a natural occurrence, I will say they are wrong! God uses earthquakes, storms, rains, fire, hail, plagues, insects, and other “natural disasters” as lessons to teach us to trust in him alone. Many things are out of our control that we must expect him to handle. We get into trouble when we try to control our situation when we alone have no source of power outside of God. If you are struggling today, look to God as your source; he is mighty. If he can control the weather conditions, you can bet your life; he can handle the trouble in your situation.
I said, ‘Surely you will fear me; you will accept correction. Then your dwelling would not be cut off according to all that I have appointed against you.’ But all the more they were eager to make all their deeds corrupt. “Therefore wait for me,” declares the LORD, “for the day when I rise up to seize the prey. For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them my indignation, all my burning anger; for in the fire of my jealousy all the earth shall be consumed. Zephaniah 3:7-8
