Wrath (8)

The spirit called Wrath can have a go at those who reject Jesus.

Whoever rejects the Son... God’s Wrath remains on them (John 3:36).
Jesus warned his listeners that their rejection of him would release Wrath in their land.
There shall be great distress on the land, and wrath on this people (Luke 21:23).
The spirit of Wrath would bring great distress on the land.

Those who fill up sin will experience terrible Wrath.

They always fill up the measure of their sins. But Wrath has come upon them to the utmost (1 Thes 2:16).
Wrath attacks those who push into the depths of sin.

When the politicians get angry, they release the spirit of Wrath.

The nations were angry and your wrath has come (Rev 11:18).
When the Bible refers to the wrath of God, it is not describing God as an immature father who flies into a rage because his children ignore his instructions. It is mostly describing an evil angel who leads an evil army of demonic powers who are seeing opportunities to punish and hurt people who have moved away from God and lost their protection.
