Righteous Anger – Jeremiah 25:38

He has left His den like a lion,
for their land has become a desolation
because of the sword of the oppressor,
because of His burning anger.


This is the aspect of Father God we love to ignore or criticize – His perfect justice which generates His burning anger toward rebellious sin. He knows the devastating effects of sin upon a person who acts out of a rebellious heart. He hates sin and rebellion. He knows its destructive power over all humanity and cannot, will not tolerate it. We expect no less from Him; yet, grow indignant when He acts in such a manner. He must punish evil in order to be Who He is. We expect justice from God – except when it impacts us or those we know. We expect a just response to rebellion – unless it is our own. The God of the universe will not allow rebellion to negatively affect His creation forever. He will act with burning anger. The implications are chilling.
