What is the wrath of God? It’s one of God’s attributes, but we may not hear much about it.

The wrath of God is His settled, righteous, perfect, holy, anger against sin. He is intensely angry at all sin and evil.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth [l]in unrighteousness” (Rom. 1:18).

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not [j]obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

For we have been consumed by Your anger
and by Your wrath we have been dismayed.
You have placed our iniquities before You,
our secret sins in the light of Your presence.
For all our days have declined in Your fury;
we have finished our years like a sigh.
 (Ps. 90:7-9)

“If we do not preach about sin and God’s judgment on it, we cannot present Christ as Saviour from sin and the wrath of God. and if we are silent about these things, and preach a Christ who only saves only from self and the sorrows of this world, we are not preaching the Christ of the Bible” (J.I. Packer).

Psalm 145:1-3 says,

I will extol You, my God, O King,
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised,
And His greatness is unsearchable.

Job 11:7 says,

“Can you discover the depths of God?
Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?”

To whom then will you liken God?
Or what likeness will you compare with Him?
