The King Is Not Angry With You   Leave a comment

Good morning,

This is an awesome message. So many Christians believe God is angry with them. But under the new covenant we have with God because of the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s isn’t angry with us. I’ve heard a pastor state that “God is going to get you”. That thought produced burdens in me and not freedom. When I learned of His grace and mercy, I started to feel free; which caused me to trust Him to forgive my sins and cleanse me. Grace actually helped me sin less. There are so many things that happen on the earth and to people and God is getting blamed for them. But we have to trust what the Lord Jesus says in Luke 9:56. Jesus says He didn’t come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. This was said to a town who rejected Jesus. There are so many things we don’t understand, but we have to trust when He says He didn’t come to destroy our lives. We have only one who come to destroy us and that’s satan. The Word of God warns us that satan comes to steal, kill AND destroy, BUT Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). If this is something you feel is wrong, just read and ask the Lord to reveal it to you. There are scriptures that back up this message, but you need to allow the Holy Spirit to open your heart to His Word and away from some traditional teachings. Think about it for a moment; why would Jesus come and die for us just to kill us. That’s not our Lord. Peace and blessings to us all.

Luke 9:51-56; And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

1 John 1:9; If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The King Is Not Angry With You – From Joseph Prince Ministries

Proverbs 19:12; The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass.

The Bible tells us that the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) But have you ever wondered why he acts like a roaring lion?

It has something to do with a lion’s roar. In the Bible, the roaring of a lion speaks of the king’s wrath—“The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion”. So when the devil walks about like a roaring lion, he is trying to give you the impression that the King is angry with you. And when you believe that God is angry with you, the devil knows that he has got you.

When you think that God is angry or displeased with you, you will not be confident of His love toward you. Instead, you will expect and fear punishment from Him. And you will want to stay away from Him because you do not wish to incur His wrath any further.

But the truth is that God is not angry with you, even when you fail or blow it, because all your sins have already been judged in the body of His Son at the cross. As the Lamb of God, Jesus became your burnt offering. That is why He said, “I thirst.” (John 19:28)

Those who heard Him say that at Calvary that day thought that His thirst was physical. Actually, His thirst was spiritual because He was being “burnt” by the fire of God’s wrath. He was being judged for our sins. His body exhausted all of God’s wrath until every claim of God’s holiness was satisfied and His wrath appeased!

Now, there is a law called “the law of double jeopardy”, which states that the same crime cannot be tried twice. Today, the fire of God’s wrath will never fall on you as a believer because it has already fallen on His Son at the cross. He judged your sins then, but in the body of His Son.

So right now, you are not under the King’s wrath but His favor. And His favor rains down on you like dew on the grass every morning!
