THE WRATHFUL MAN

'A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.' - Proverbs 15 vs 18

Hello, what a beautiful exhortation this is from the heart of the Spirit of the Living God. When the Lord first spoke these words into my heart, I began to make sharp amendments where necessary, and I know the same will take effect in you in Jesus Name. AMEN.

The wrathful man. Remember, wrath is a work of the flesh. Our opening scripture gives us one clear character of a man who is wrathful, it says, such a man stirs up strife. Strife speaks of disagreement, strife speaks of quarrels, strife speaks of disagreement that causes people to raise their voices against one another. So it says, a man of wrath is the one that stirs up strife.

Brothers and Sisters, we are Sons of God, wrath is not part of our nature neither is strife. One way you can measure if you are giving to wrath, is to observe how you respond in conversations involving different opinions. Do you easily raise your voice against people or show bitterness against someone just because such a fellow is of a different opinion on a subject you both are discussing? Are you like that? Then you are the one our opening scripture is referring to as A WRATHFUL MAN. - Selah

Remember, we are VESSELS OF MERCY {Romans 9 vs 23}, not vessels of wrath. Therefore, no matter what it is, let your responses or reactions to any matter always express the mercy of God, of which VESSEL you are.

'Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye aught to answer every man.' - Colossians 4 vs 6 {KJV}

You see, there is a way to answer any man no matter how annoying or opposing he may be. All that is required is for us to cautiously GRACE our words, and we will all be happy without bitterness in our hearts.

'If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.' - Romans 12 vs 18 {KJV}


As much as lieth in you here means 'As much as you can'. You see? God is saying to you, in your conversation with people, in your relationship with people, in your discussions with people, as much as you can, do it peacefully. Note, he didn't say with some men, but with all men. This includes the very annoying people, and the kind people, the easily vexing people, and the gentle, the arrogant and the peaceful.

As you conform your life to the teaching of God's WORD, I see you having the testimonies thereof in Jesus Name.

God Bless You.
