The wrath of God is scary! However, there is a difference between his wrath and his discipline. The Church, you and I, will receive discipline for our sins, but the unsaved will face his wrath. God is our Father, and as our parent, he will use discipline to point us in the right direction and draw us to him. We are the recipient of his grace, but there is no grace for the unrepentant sinner; there is no covering for their sin until they turn to Jesus; if they turn to Jesus. Take a look at these verses from Isaiah:
“I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in my wrath; their lifeblood spattered on my garments, and stained all my apparel… I trampled down the peoples in my anger; I made them drunk in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.” Isaiah 63:3 & 6
However, we must be careful in our walk. Do not make the mistake of turning against God and siding with evil. We are seeing a lot of that in the church today by trying to be all things to all people and turning our backs on God’s holiness to be inclusive. Righteousness and evil do not intermingle. God is exclusive; he excludes evil from his love and mercy. I expect we will begin to see his correction of the church soon.
But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; therefore he turned to be their enemy, and himself fought against them. Isaiah 63:10
