Angry at God? At a Loving God!

Angry at God?

Whoever misleads the upright into an evil way will fall into his own pit, but the blameless will have a goodly inheritance. (Proverbs 28:10 ESV)

but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Psalms 147:11 ESV)

As in the past history of this world as stated by the word of God, there are false teachers out there,  ministers misleading people to believe that as Christians its ok to be angry at God.  

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1 ESV)

Beware of preachers who teach that it's ok to be angry at God.  They are not speaking for God to the salvation of souls, but for satan to the damnation of souls. 

First and foremost, to Honor God, refresh your memory with the following verses. 

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7 ESV)

He owes nothing to the creature and here is a Supreme God, giving us the gift of His only begotten son along with the regeneration and renewal of The Holy Spirit, salvation for our souls.  (What are you angry about?)

Pastor Chris states, "Our righteousness will not save us, and thus Christians don't have the authority to redefine God."  Well stated by a man of God, to glorify Him.  

It's a sin and pointless to think that we can go before God feeling self righteous and be angry at God.  In case you missed the point, please the verse again. 

When God the Holy Spirit quickened our hearts onto repentance, and we accepted the complete work of Christ on the cross, He became resident in us.  And that allow God to start that process of sanctification.  The Holy Spirit separated us from the world onto God.  We are empowered by the Triune not to sin anymore.  

And by the way, do you or have you felt, as if strangely enough your prayers are not answered?   Hang in here, you will be pleasantly surprised and I pray, enlightened and blessed. 

It was God's plan of salvation, Jesus executed it, and God the Holy Spirit sealed  it.  Don't quench God the Holy Spirit by going before Abba Father with your foolish and sinful anger.  He redeemed us for the sole purpose of worshipping Him.  We are regenerated and renewed by the Holy Spirit, out with the old, in with the new person.  The new person is about, Honoring and giving God glory, which He rightfully deserves.  (What are you angry about? Please keep asking yourself, and hang in here)

As per Pastor Chris, "Only in a little time will be rejoicing in his  kingdom eternally at which time we will realize utterly, what God has done for us, in an eternity."

Don't get sidetracked by a false teacher, pier pressure, don't loose sight of God's kingdom.  There are ministers, misleading people to believe that as Christians its ok to be angry at God.  False teachers that will fool if possible the elect.  

Bear in mind that such a behavior is not pleasing  to our Father since it does not Honor Him, your absurd behavior and ill will is going to escalate.  Don't waste the energy that God the Holy Spirit puts in you to worship, in displaying anger at God.  

Don't quench the Holy Spirit!
Don't quench the Holy Spirit!   
Don't quench the Holy Spirit!  

Embed this in your mind, it's not about YOU! 


for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, (Philippians 2:13-15 ESV)  

(What are you angry about?) it is an ungodly feeling. Read the verse again, out loud this time. 

for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, (Philippians 2:13-15 ESV)  

"persevere in face of obstacles. "  As Christians we experience hardships in life, wether physical, health or financial, even when relationships fail.  PERSEVERE!"

You are empowered by the Triune, to persevere and when you do, you are giving God  the Honor and the Glory.  He will walk through your storm, HE LOVES TO PUT HIS POWER ON DISPLAY!  FOR THE PLEASURE OF HIS GOOD WILL. 


If you cannot comprehend the hardships in your life, rather than to sin, been angry at a loving and kind God, PRAY!  Pray without ceasing and continue to praise and Honor God. 

God allows the worse to happen, and as you continue with your praises in worship, you are showing your perseverance to a Living God, He will walk through your storm, and bestow blessings upon you, and when He does walk through your storm, and He will!, you will be overwhelmed with joy.  You will experience continually the peace God has with you.  But, if you continue to be sinful and foolish with your anger at God, you fall short of His glory and mercy, to experience the severity of His punishment. 

 Again, our Heavenly Father will put His power on display, for the pleasure of His Good will.  Bear in mind we don't pray so as to change God's mind, we communicate with Him all our worries and cares.  He wants to do for us more than what we ask for.  He is our Heavenly Father and knows what is best for us.  Life's hardship can be devastating, but don't let it manipulate and rob you of your relationship with God.  Don't allow false teachers to mislead you to believe different.  

We live in a sinful flesh. By nature we are in enmity against God.  And He gave His only begotten Son to die for us, a punishment we rightfully deserve.  So what gives you the right to be angry at God.  Satan is roaring like a lion, looking to devour your soul.  He is a father of lies. Don't allow false teacher to enter your life with lies, to lead you astray.  Apostasy, will cost your salvation, you will not escape the severity of God.

Here is what this false teacher states:

You will come across ministers misleading in what they supposedly, are tackling one of the most confusing, frustrating and problematic issues that most religious people face at various points in their lives: How to handle their relationship with God when challenges arise and circumstances become difficult — even unbearable.

Furthermore when asked:

Is it okay for Christians to be angry at God?  They claim,

If we are feeling anger toward God — or anybody else for that matter — then who do we think we’re fooling by NOT just admitting them and healthily working through them like we  would in any of our relationships? I mean, if there’s some magic hat that I can wear that can keep an omniscient God from knowing what is in my heart, tell me which church sells them.  

So, is it okay for Christians to be angry at God? Absolutely, as long as we don’t live in that anger and allow it to define or even end the relationship. That’s the greater sin.

(Observe the first sentence, If we are feeling anger toward God — or anybody else for that matter, "you cannot compare God to man. We are created creatures of God.  Just as He created us,  he can destroy us. He owes nothing to the creature.  So who are you, to stand before God with your foolish anger?"

Reason with me here, as human parents that we are, we want the best for our children.  We have a zealous love for them. We protect them from everything and anything.  We strive to provide them with all of their necessities and far more than what they ask for, within our limitations.  Yet one day, do to bad behavior and in the discipline process, you did nothing to please them.  At that rate your child builds courage within their self righteousness, with the audacity to stand before you, and with utter profanity disrespect you, put on their  foolish anger.   Now, you will feel the justifiable anger  of a parent.   And punishment with is  warranted. 

God our heavenly Father does not deserve, our anger and utter disrespect.  For as long as we live in this sinful flesh and sinful world, we are going to suffer some form of hardship.  Regardless, outweigh God's plan of salvation, with Jesus executing said plan, and God the Holy Spirit sealing our salvation, and no one breaks the seal of God.  He knows you from eternity past. 

So what are your angry about?   Really!   Is your life straight with God?  Do you find that it's God who should be angry with you?   Touch base with reality here.  Are you leading a sinful life? Do you Honor God in everything you do?  

Look at the evidences of salvation.  The direction of your life not the perfection of it.

Do you love Christ, do you desire to Honor Christ, do you resent the sins that is in you?
Do you love the truth of scripture, do you love the word of God taught and understood, does it bring you joy and do you love to praise the Lord?

Do you love to sing the hymns that exalt and Honor Him?

This are evidences of God the Holy Spirit quickening your heart and producing the eagerness to learn and worship, the willingness to follow and serve Him.

The Lord, God will give you a faith that prevails, and will be nurtured through the reading and understanding of true Bible doctrines, God the Holy Spirit inspired the Bible, and God the Holy Spirit will teach you.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matt11.29.ESV. For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Ps107.9.ESV

Make a commitment to live according to the Truth.

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:Phil1.6.KJV.   but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Psalms 147:11 ESV)

What's your position now, other than to fall prostrate before a loving  Living God.  Ask for forgiveness and Honor Him, through your hardship, what ever that may be.  Pray without ceasing, and He will walk through your storm.  Thereafter you will continue with all the praises.   Our God is all about praises, Honor and Glory.  Remember, He created man to worship Him and not to come before Him with our ungodliness behavior.  

Self examine with this Psalm. 

O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night," even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you. Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me! They speak against you with malicious intent; your enemies take your name in vain! Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord ? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you? I hate them with complete hatred; I count them my enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!  psa.139.1.esv

Scrutinize  your relationship with God, don't follow in the wrong footsteps, follow in the footsteps of Christ.  

Look at His sacrifice on the cross, was He angry at those that were sacrificing Him, and or was He angry with His Father?   

He always went to the mount to talk to His Father in prayer.  This is the Son of God, He gave us prefect example as to how to communicate with Abba Father. 

The following paragraphs, are extracted from one of John MacArthur sermon.  Read with close attention and be blessed. 

If you were really consumed with the glory of God you're going to feel the pain that God feels when His name is dishonored. And certainly from a personal standpoint if that's your feeling, you're not going to want to dishonor Him because you're not going to want to add to His pain.  

So the first thing then in glorifying God, moving from one level of glory to the next, is to aim your life at that purpose. Now let me give you the second and just briefly. We...we glorify God by confessing sin. We glorify God by confessing sin. The thief on the cross is a good illustration of this. He really did glorify God in his death because he had failed to glorify God all his life. But in his death he glorified God because he said this, Luke 23:41, looking at the other thief, "We indeed suffer justly."

What was he saying? We're getting exactly what we deserve. What is that? That is tantamount to a confession of sin. We're here and being crucified and it's exactly what we deserve. And you see, what that does is glorify God. How? Because it frees God from any accusation of impunity for being unkind or ungracious or unjust. They're not shaking their hands...their fists in the face of God like those in Revelation 16 and saying, "What kind of God are You? Why would You let this happen to us?" No, the thief said, "Hey, we're getting exactly what we deserve. We sinned. This is what we deserve thus freeing God to do whatever God would justly do without any accusation against him." You see, one of the reasons you confess sin is just to restore the fellowship with God but a second reason you confess sin is to free God up to do whatever He wants to do to you. If you confess your sin to God and God chastens you, then you've acknowledged that He has every right to do it, right? It's a holy reaction against your sin. On the other hand, if you confess your sin and God doesn't chasten you, then you have glorified God also because now you're going to understand the greatness and the magnanimity of His grace. Right? But if you don't even acknowledge your sin and don't even confess your sin and if God chastens you, you're liable to shake your fist at Him and say, "Why is this happening in my life? I don't understand this." Or if God is gracious to you, you're not even going to understand it at all. You're going to not even acknowledge it at all. You're going to think you deserve it because you're such a good person. But when you come to grips with your sin you free God up to chasten you and you'll know that He has a right to do it or to gracious to you and you'll know that you don't deserve it. Either case you're going to glorify Him for His justice or His mercy. But, you see, if you won't accept the responsibility for your sin, then He gets no glory either way

Now we live in a culture where people don't want to take responsibility for their sin. Is that not true? They're not responsible for their sin. They're not responsible for anything in their lives. And consequently they do not glorify God. It doesn't not glorify God when you blame somebody else for sin that is only your problem. Nobody is responsible for your sin but you...not your mother, not your father, not your aunt, your uncle, not your orphanage, not anything. Nobody but you is responsible for your sin. And the sooner you acknowledge that responsibility then the Lord in chastening you can be glorified because it's a just chastening. And in not chastening you, you can praise Him and thank Him for the grace that He gives you because you know what you really deserve.

This is a God who is so holy He will not tolerate sin," and that is the reputation that glorifies God. Right?

And that, of course, sets up the whole significance of the atoning work of Jesus Christ. You can see that what Jesus Christ did on the cross was appease the wrath of God by satisfying His justice for us.

You want to glorify God? Then aim your life at that purpose and confess your sin and confess it specifically so that when God chastens you He will not be impugned for being unjust. And when He shows you grace, He will not be forgotten for His mercy.

You see, when we admit our sin that glorifies God because it puts on display His holy wrath against sin and it puts on display His sweet merciful grace for the sinner. You want to move from level of glory to level of glory and become more and more like Christ? You want to become all that God wants you to be? Then aim your life at glorifying God and confess your sin.        buy John MacArthur. 

Diversity hardship is what helps you grow up spiritually.  Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares about you. 1Peter 5:7   do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   Phil4.6.ESV

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude1.24.ESV

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. Ps31.24.KJV

For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. 2Cor1.20.ESV

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.   Heb10.23.ESV

May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. (Jude 1:2 ESV)   Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Eph6.10.ESV    There is none like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is great in might.   Jer10.6.ESV

Blessed be the Lord forever! Amen and Amen. (Psalms 89:52 ESV)


God Bless you dearly and richly.
