"Serve the LORD with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. Submit to God's royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of your pursuits--for his anger can flare up in an instant. But what joy for all who find protection in him!"

God's anger flaring up in an instant--- this sounds more like the OT description and iamgery of God---which I'm having trouble with. To me God is LOVE, and LOVE is patient and kind. This is contradictory to his anger flaring up in an instant, isn't it?

God (the Father) is a Spirit and no one has actually seen Him---except through visions and images and we keep attributing onto Him human qualities, yet we also know that he is more than or beyond all human qualities combined.

"The Gospel is still moving forward in our world to people that we sometimes may not think "deserve" it, like this crowd didn't think the Gentiles deserved relationship with "their" God of Israel."

i'm pretty sure this stuck out to me because i have a really strong predjudice against christians...and although i consider myself a follower of christ...i often hate to be called a christian for all the reasons that i'm sure you can imagine...and if you can't...maybe i'll share them later.

god has been talking me into grace for christians...so this one really took hold of me...i don't think the church "deserves" him...it actually makes me really angry...but then again...he knew we wouldn't.

e---I’ve been there done that! I use to curse out believers, especially black folk—“What are you doing reading that “white’s man’s book!” God’s people are messed up and even though I don’t like to put myself in that category—as a member of the family of God---I’m messed up. We are to be followers of Christ not followers of his disciples including those who really are and those who just have the façade.

One of the things I find about really reading the Bible is this: ya never know when it will stop allowing you to read it and when it begins reading you.

I bet we can trade some horror stories.

All my prayers and love,
