Consumed By His Anger

The Bible says, "For we are consumed by your anger, and by your wrath are we troubled. You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance."(Psalm 90:7-8) The world isn't "troubled" by God's wrath. They are offended by the thought that He is angry at them. Nevertheless, the Bible says that they are "consumed" by His anger. It abides on them and envelopes them as a raging fire. This is because He has set their iniquities in front of Him, like a judge who places all the evidence of a heinous crime on the bench before him before he passes sentence. But more than that, their secret sins are in the light of His countenance. They are not at His feet. They are in front of His face. He sees every wicked thought and deed. No wonder Paul said, "Wherefore knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men."(2 Corinthians 5:11) There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
