Battle Prayer Notes 5/3/23

Good morning brother,

Day two topic: Wrath/ Anger

Definition: strong vengeful anger or indignation

Counterpart: peace, gentleness, self-control

Wrath is a strong anger and hate towards another person. The Bible speaks about wrath in Romans 12:19, “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’”

Additional Bible verses include: Psalm 37:8, Proverbs 14:29, Proverbs 15:1, Ephesians 4:26-27, Colossians 3:8 and James 1:19-20.

Patience cures wrath by first understanding the needs and desires of others before acting or speaking.

Human anger can be petty. Identify the source of the anger.

Admit our anger to God and ask for help. Pray about it. He can help us through it.

As we talk to God He will help tame our anger.

Eph 4:26

Don’t try to use Scripture as an excuse for provoked anger.

If our hearts are raging against the LORD that is not good.

Sometimes you just need rest in the LORD.

Forgiveness helps dissolve our anger.

Gods forgiveness helps us forgive others.

Bitter roots are planted in anger.

Jesus was mad about:

Jesus was mad about the human condition.

Jesus was mad about putting rules upon rules and the law of love is buried.

Jesus had a place for child. Do not turn away children.

Jesus was mad about the self righteous and prideful. Washing the outside and not the inside.

Jesus was mad when people did not admit they need God.

Jesus was mad when people make it hard for others to come to God.

Jesus was mad about selfish ambition.

Jesus was able to be angry and not sin. He wants to have relationship with us.

Gods wrath is bigger than us. God is love is his nature. Angry is not his nature but a response to evil and sin.

Wrath definition.

We provoke God with our open sin and rebellion.

Read Col. 3:12-17

Don’t sin in your anger.

The LORD is slow to anger with us.

The wrath of God is, according to John Stott, “His steady, unrelenting, unremitting, uncompromising antagonism to evil in all its forms and manifestations

God’s wrath is provoked.

God’s wrath is the just and measured response of his holiness toward evil.

[Gen 49:5-7 NLT] 5 "Simeon and Levi are two of a kind; their weapons are instruments of violence. 6 May I never join in their meetings; may I never be a party to their plans. For in their anger they murdered men, and they crippled oxen just for sport. 7 A curse on their anger, for it is fierce; a curse on their wrath, for it is cruel. I will scatter them among the descendants of Jacob; I will disperse them throughout Israel.

Righteous Anger can lead us to the right thing.

Give us self control and peace in our hearts and mind Jesus.

Anger with God can consume you. We need God desperately.

When we get anger where are we directing our minds and channeling our thoughts too? Many times we use vices to quench our passions.

We need to submit our spirits to you, the spirit of anger.

[Exo 32:9-11 NLT] 9 Then the LORD said, "I have seen how stubborn and rebellious these people are. 10 Now leave me alone so my fierce anger can blaze against them, and I will destroy them. Then I will make you, Moses, into a great nation." 11 But Moses tried to pacify the LORD his God. "O LORD!" he said. "Why are you so angry with your own people whom you brought from the land of Egypt with such great power and such a strong hand?

[Exo 32:12-14 NLT] 12 Why let the Egyptians say, 'Their God rescued them with the evil intention of slaughtering them in the mountains and wiping them from the face of the earth'? Turn away from your fierce anger. Change your mind about this terrible disaster you have threatened against your people! 13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You bound yourself with an oath to them, saying, 'I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven. And I will give them all of this land that I have promised to your descendants, and they will possess it forever.'" 14 So the LORD changed his mind about the terrible disaster he had threatened to bring on his people.

[Gen 49:5-7 NLT] 5 "Simeon and Levi are two of a kind; their weapons are instruments of violence. 6 May I never join in their meetings; may I never be a party to their plans. For in their anger they murdered men, and they crippled oxen just for sport. 7 A curse on their anger, for it is fierce; a curse on their wrath, for it is cruel. I will scatter them among the descendants of Jacob; I will disperse them throughout Israel.

[Jhn 11:33 NLT] 33 When Jesus saw her weeping and saw the other people wailing with her, a deep anger welled up within him, and he was deeply troubled.

If lust is a fire within anger is a fire outside that can burn up everything we love.

Anger and rebuke needs to be done with grace and love.

A moment of anger can destroy everything good.

The enemy whispers and provokes is to evil and be anger.

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭14‬:‭29‬ ‭

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭1‬ ‭

Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7‬:‭9‬ ‭

Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ ‭

Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭32‬

A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel. Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭18‬ ‭

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭19‬

But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭8‬ ‭

God provokes us to righteous indignation. The enemy, our flesh, can lead us to uncontrolled anger and rage.

[Exo 34:6 NLT] 6 The LORD passed in front of Moses, calling out, "Yahweh! The LORD! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.

When we leave anger on our own many times that is selfish.

Control your anger with worship.

AMP

A man of great anger will bear the penalty [for his quick temper and lack of self-control]; For if you rescue him [and do not let him learn from the consequences of his action], you will only have to rescue him over and over again.

Proverbs 19:19 amplified bible

[Rom 1:18 NLT] 18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.

[Rom 2:8 NLT] 8 But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness.

[Rom 9:22 NLT] 22 In the same way, even though God has the right to show his anger and his power, he is very patient with those on whom his anger falls, who are destined for destruction.

[Rom 12:19 NLT] 19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, "I will take revenge; I will pay them back," says the LORD.


The cross. What a terror. The cross of Christ. What a terror and glory. The worst brutality meets the mightiest meekness. Unfathomable horror meets unsurpassed beauty. The most righteous condemnation meets the most gracious pardon. The greatest justice meets the greatest mercy. The fiercest wrath meets the most bountiful favor. And such love.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:9–10)


Who would have ever dreamed a Roman cross, one of the worst, most fearsome devices of torture ever devised, would become a symbol of the greatest love ever expressed? For “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” and saved us “from the wrath of God” (Romans 5:8–9).
