Destroying it fully, razed it to the ground,
When He cannot even find ten righteous among them.
As we grow spiritually, we should develop fear of the Lord,
For He is angry towards sin.
And develop love for Him for His great patience when we sin.
God’s anger was hot against Israel’s idol worship,
After they were brought out from Egypt.
They worshipped gods of the people around them,
Bowed themselves, serving them, provoking the Lord’s anger.
And He allowed their enemies to conquer and subjugate them.
But still God provided judges to save the Israelites from oppression.
God let Balaam go with Balak’s messengers,
But Balaam’s greed made him take the great wealth offered.
Even though we know what God wants us to do,
Still we go after money, posse ions and power.
Look past the temptation of the worldly riches,
Go for the long range benefits of following God.
God is angry against all ungodliness and unrighteousness,
Because the people substitute the truth with a fantasy of their own.
Stifling the truth to suit their own self fish self centered life style,
Removing the sin and to restore the sinner,
God gives the sinners another chance,
But if the sinner persists in sinning, God erupts in anger.
God’s anger is, when we, His people, sin against Him.
But God is patience personified and still loves us.
Giving us the chance to put a full stop to all the wrongs we do.
From the beginning of the Bible we saw God’s mighty power,
When His people obeyed and worshipped him.
Let not the wrath of God be kindled against us by our disobedience.
