Are You Angry at the Wicked?

Angry Preachers Rebuked, Refreshed, and Healed!!! NOT all who claim to be watchmen are of the LORD. Some of the most wicked people you will meet come across as those who love the truth while simultaneously subverting the Gospel of grace, driven by the spirit of antichrist and denying Christ. Beware. For example, those who only preach on sin with no biblical remedy stated/preached and nothing of the mercy and love and grace of God! These are devils of the worst kind! Beware. What is biblical evangelism?

Angry Preachers Warned and Refreshed!

ARE YOU AN ANGRY PREACHER? IF SO, instead of calling others to repent, perhaps you should obey that command yourself so the LORD can refresh and truly use you and so you can cease bringing reproach to His holy name which you are taking in vain (Matthew 7:1-5; Acts 3:19; Galatians 6:1-2).
 
street-preachers-busted-self-righteous-pharisees“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:” Ephesians 4:26

DID JESUS and His holy apostles or anyone in the early church stand in the streets screaming at people? Yes or no please. I’m namely speaking of the mean-spirited disposition of many of today’s street preachers.

Street ministry is in and of itself part of fulfilling the Great Commission Jesus gave us and yet, in no case is it of God to be mean to regular lost people while pretending to be representing Jesus who was only severely harsh in His righteous rebukes to the false religionists and the rich.

The angry preachers and false watchmen must be called out for their own wickedness. It’s time WE (beginning with this fool) preachers repent ourselves and cease telling others to repent until we have truly repented and brought forth the fruit to prove it (Matthew 3:7-10).

There are some street preachers and organizations today who are a veritable cult and spew out hatred. This is completely unlike Christ, the apostles, and the earliest believers. Psalms 7:11 is a verse they use to justify their sinful anger. But let’s take a look at Psalms 7:11 in light of the whole counsel of God’s Word.

“God is angry with the wicked.” Psalms 7:11

The fact that the LORD is “angry with the wicked” does not mean that He gave mere sinful men (us) the permission or instruction to go angrily yell at and possess hatred toward the lost. Beware of those who run around with hatred in their hearts toward the lost and misuse Psalms 7:11 as a license to do so.

There are those who misuse Psalms 7:11 to justify their own self-righteous hatred for sinners.
 
“God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. 12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.” Psalms 7:11-12
 
Note that “God judgeth the righteous” and not us. Notice that “God is angry with the wicked.” The LORD didn’t say here that you are God, nor did He give you the license to cover your own sinful hatred and be angry at the wicked. The LORD gave no mere man the instruction or right to be angry with the wicked.
 
This passage must be taken in conjunction with the whole of Holy Scripture. Jesus told us to be “perfect” or mature in our perspective of the lost. Read Matthew 5:44-48 with that in mind.
 
angry-street-preachers3Do we not realize that HE is “the Almighty” and we are but mere men? (Revelation 1:8)
 
“Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who ONLY HATH IMMORTALITY, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” 1 Timothy 6:15-16
 

To put it lightly, the LORD is elite. The LORD is divine, infinite. We are finite, made in His image and yet fallen and but a part of His creation. It’s time to humble ourselves.

If you find the LORD convicting you of the sin of unrighteous anger, we know He is calling you to set yourself aside for a time – to be refreshed in His holy presence and filled with His love (Acts 3:19; 1 John 4:16-18).

POURING out our own anger upon others is sin and rooted in complete self-righteousness. Memorize this:

“For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.” James 1:20

If WE are angry with the wicked it reveals that we should be angry with ourselves and get our own hearts right with God before we yell at the lost.

Are you angry with the wicked? … Is God calling you to come before Him?

Those who are right with God and therefore whom Jesus is able to use are filled with His joy!  Jesus had more joy than any man who ever walked the earth! (John 15:11; Hebrews 1:9)

A Samaritan Village Rejects Jesus

“And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 
52  And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 
53  And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 
54  And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 
55  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of
56  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.” (Luke 9:51-56)
 

Jesus informed us that He came to save all because “GOD so LOVED the world”, not hated the the people of the world. We find this is John 3:16? What are the next words Jesus utters? – “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:17)

“We should never forget the pit we were in when Jesus in mercy rescued us.” Joseph Gros

HOW DO WE VIEW THE WICKED? Taking God’s LOVE to those around us IS following Jesus! If we don’t understand that, we are most utterly missing the message of Christ! Memorizing Luke 9:56 and John 3:17 today will change all that!

Objection: “But wait, the Bible says God is angry with sinners!”

“God is angry with the wicked.” Psalms 7:11

The LORD gives you no permission at all to be possessed with an angry, wicked attitude toward anyone. Yes, again, the Bible says that “GOD angry with the wicked” and that does not mean that He gave mere sinful men (us) the permission to have hate in our hearts whatsoever! Calling down divine judgment on others reveals that we ourselves still have a wicked heart. – “But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.” (Luke 9:55)

or instruction to go angrily yell at and possess hatred toward the lost. Beware of those who run around with hatred in their hearts toward the lost and misuse Psalms 7:11 as a license to do so.

The Joy of the LORD | Kindness is a Soul Winning Weapon!

Preaching the Law and allowing God to convict sinners with the razor edge sword of His holy Law is the Biblical method of evangelism, not personal hatred and anger.

SO you do street ministry? Okay, good…. if you are doing it in love – God’s way. Yet, that makes you no more significant than any other member of Christ’s body (1 Corinthians 12). How did Jesus invite people to come to Him?

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

FEEDBACK:

“I can’t get with the angry attitude towards sinners – who are doing what sinners do. They sin! I believe in street ministry! But our messages is a message of hope and freedom from sin.” Lyndon Conn

These types of mean spirited so called street preachers (there are some real true street preachers) often manifest hate towards people instead of hate towards sin. Its the sick that need a physician and Jesus was focused on healing them even when they did not turn to Him! According to 1 Corinthians chapter 5 the church does not judge outsiders. These angry haters preach the letter of the law and that only brings condemnation. No thanks.” Steve Anderson

QUESTION:

If God loves everybody, does God love Satan?

REPLY:

No but Jesus did not come to die for Satan he came to die for all men (John 3:16-17; 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 2:2).

QUESTION:

What about Psalms 5:5 which says: “The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.” 

REPLY:

First, if we read the context of Psalms 5, it becomes clear that the “foolish … workers of iniquity” are unrepentant who are in contrast with the righteous, choosing to live in rebellion after hearing God’s Word. The Hebrew word for “hatest” in Psalms 5:5 indicates that God is at enmity with those outside His kingdom …. and that’s exactly WHY – the reason – He sent His only begotten Son to die and bring us and all sinners to Himself. Let’s listen to Jesus: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:17) And when His immature disciples wished to call down fire from Heaven upon people, Jesus says …. “But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.” Luke 9:55-56 You and I have no right in God’s eyes to hate any wicked person – no matter our personal prejudice against their flavor of sin. Paul said he was the least worthy to be saved as “chief of sinners.” – “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15 If God is angry with the wicked, that’s God – who is “Holy, holy, holy” and you aren’t! (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8) All sodomites, satanists, so-called atheists, muslims, catholics, mormons …. are simply sinners because there’s only 2 type people in this world – those in and those outside Christ’s kingdom. Our mandate from the LORD is not to self-righteously condemn them but rather to compassionately call them to repent and receive Christ. If we aren’t doing ministry in God’s love, we should step back and get our own hearts right with Him …. and depart from the mean-spirited devils who are angrily and arrogantly yelling at sinners for whom Jesus came and bled, was buried, and raised again (Romans 5:6-8; 1 Timothy 1:15; Luke 9:56; John 3:17, etc.).
