THE WRATH AND VENGEANCE OF GOD
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given
all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him (John 3:35-36).
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God
hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse (Rom 1:18-20).
But if our unrighteousness
commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (Rom 3:5).
To me belongeth vengeance,
and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon
them make haste (Deu 32:35).
The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of
the wicked (Psa 58:10).
O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself (Psa 94:1).
to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he
will come and save you (Isa 35:4).
And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard (Mic
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which
are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries
enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled (Luke 21:20-22).
beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord (Rom
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you (2 Thes 1:6).
Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh,
are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:7).
"And the third day there was a marriage in Cana
of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
And both Jesus was called, and
to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the
mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
Jesus saith unto her,
Woman, what have I to do
with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His
mother saith unto the servants,
Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it."
