Understanding God's Wrath and End Times Judgment

About God - Part 15

Listen to podcast audio:

The doctrine of God’s wrath is not a popular topic in the church today. It is often seen in opposition to his love, but Gary Wilkerson and Keith Holloway explain how the wrath of God is actually married to his love and can be redemptive in its purpose.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • God’s wrath is righteous, to be feared, consistent through both the Old and New Testaments, his love in action against sin, and satisfied in Christ.
  • The wrath of God is very different than the human emotion of anger.
  • God instructs us to be slow to be anger because he himself is longsuffering in executing his wrath.
  • All have sinned and deserve the wrath of God, but God poured out his wrath on his Son so that we would be saved from eternal judgment through faith in Christ Jesus.
  • There is a final day of judgment when God’s wrath will be poured out on all who are not followers of Christ.
