Understanding God’s Anger
Matthew 21:12-13
February 7, 2021
Matthew New Testament

Have you ever thought about what makes God angry? There is a scene in the Temple of Jerusalem where Jesus is so angry that He overthrows tables and drives out people who have misused the House of God (even using a whip, according to John’s gospel). It’s important to understand this aspect of God’s nature—that He can get angry—because without that understanding, we are liable to treat God with disrespect and disobedience if we only see Him as a lovable Teddy Bear. And that is partly true, but there is also a Grizzly Bear side of God that you don’t want to mess with. Yet, the Bible tells us some wonderful aspects about the anger of God that Pastor Gary will share at the conclusion of today’s teaching entitle, “Understanding God’s Anger.”
