Darkness carries nothing to see.
Anger is the cancer of peace.

"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, ...
~ Ephesians 4:26


Too many have split over trifles that escalate past the softness of
forgiveness. One should choose to be upset with what causes one
to fall away from the peace of a true relationship with God first, and
then too earnestly carry more peace with others. Anger is the plague
of all times and especially for us today as it tragically infests the
roadways across our land. Arrogance has it that no one is going
to do me wrong, too often attacking without reason. And what
damage has been done from the extremely poor selfish leadership
we are all stricken with. Without respect for a higher source,
hate freely swims in itsí misery biting all in itsí raging path.


Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed,
and be still. ... put your trust in the LORD ~ Psalms 4:4-5


Our anger should be focused upon a riled heart not controlling self
in the spirit of love. We need to pray for His will to help bring about
what is best in us. Lack of trust in God only exacerbates
desperation and agitates the heart unnecessarily.


Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret - it only causes harm.
~ Psalms 37:8


It is a command of God not to be irrationally angry. Not only does
headaches over agony steal any bliss, it diverges from the deep gifts
of spirit He offers to each of us who are able to fully trust in Him.


He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,
But he who is impulsive exalts folly. ... ~ Proverbs 14:29-30


Contention is the order of our times. How rotten have we become lacking
the spiritual life that inspires our children to achieve more. Our leadership
is compromised by the animosities we hold from the top down.

It all but appears that Godly fear is far from those who tyrannically
claim the answers to our social diseases rest with them.


Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from
your desires for pleasure that war in your members? ... ~ James 4:1-3


Without clear calm thinking our children are being raised
to naturally revolt. The anger from the top trickles down
invading the peace of the simple.


For wrath kills a foolish man, And envy slays a simple one. ~ Job 5:2

Envy swirls in an unsettled soul.

"But the hypocrites in heart store up wrath; They do not cry for help ..."
~ Job 36:13-14


Often the young ignorantly die before true maturity and wisdom takes
a turn to higher order thinking. The self can consumes one in isolation.


The merciful man does good for his own soul, But he
who is cruel troubles his own flesh. ~ Proverbs 11:17


Cruelty destroys what little peace may be had
leaving the heart disturbed in constant turmoil.


... Then the LORD said, "Is it right for you to be angry?" ~ Jonah 4:3-4

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation
through our Lord Jesus Christ, ... ~ 1st Thessalonians 5:9


Wrath is reserved for God against those that turn from His ways.
We are instructed to resign to sorrow and pleas for help,
but not to leap over to senseless anger.


A man of great wrath will suffer punishment;
For if you rescue him, you will have to do it again. ~ Proverbs 19:19


There is repeat offenders that live to hate all others. The truth of one
who continually chooses evil over good is very condemning indeed.


Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go,
Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. ~ Proverbs 22:24-25


Anger begets anger and it is advised to avoid those who
are unable to exercise self control. A wild man cures no one.


An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.
~ Proverbs 29:22


A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.
~ Proverbs 15:18


Hot heads alienate the meek while cool
collected heads inspire all they encounter.


A quick-tempered man acts foolishly,
And a man of wicked intentions is hated. ~ Proverbs 14:17


Truly those that defy decency and courtesy
earn the public contempt they deserve.


Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent, But who is able to stand before jealousy?
~ Proverbs 27:4


For jealousy is a husband's fury; Therefore
he will not spare in the day of vengeance. ~ Proverbs 6:34


Obsessive possession of others enrages those
engulfed in the claws of loss. Jealousy is vain sickness.


Better to dwell in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and angry woman.
~ Proverbs 21:19


Wickedness is found in the needles disgust throws in itsí unsatisfied spew.

... Says the LORD of hosts. "Therefore take heed to your spirit,
That you do not deal treacherously." ~ Malachi 2:16


Without love understanding is all but void where the treacherous prowl.

Consider the wages of anger
Do not rest on your anger
Be angry with sin and trust in the Lord
Fretting or anger only does harm; cease from wrath
Slow to anger shows great understanding
Greed and envy is notorious for breeding anger
Anger troubles the soul - find His salvation
The Lord instructs us to carry sorrow over anger
Some are unable to fend off anger and obtain peace
Avoid the angry as they stir up strife
A quick-tempered man acts foolishly inviting hatred
Jealousy is an extreme form of anger
Suffering goes hand and hand with an angry partner
Treachery involves the intent to do violence

Darkness has no regard for light.
Anger steals the love God intended for us.
For one to rise past anger, love has to overpower contempt.


... And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door.
And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." ~ Genesis 4:6-7


In rage madness can cause one to bark unkindly.
It is the command of God that we should rule over this weakness
to pounce upon others unjustly. We must rule over our emotions
rather than having our emotions rule over us.


A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
~ Proverbs 29:11


Fools lack the wisdom to restrain uncontrolled emotional outbursts.

Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests
in the bosom of fools. ~ Ecclesiastes 7:9


"By your patience possess your souls." ~ Luke 21:19

Again, God instructs us to take command
of our spirit and possess our souls.


Wisdom is too lofty for a fool; He does not open his mouth in the gate.
He who plots to do evil Will be called a schemer. ~ Proverbs 24:7-8


Fools lack character and stumble as they plot the demise of others
in the perception of lifting themselves. Instead of asking God for
guidance and forgiveness, a fool will arrogantly plot his way
through destructive anger excusing behavior rather than
wisely accessing character improvements.


He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. ~ Proverbs 16:32


Self-control is one of the highest premiums in living a life to
the fullest potential that it can offer; in the utmost evaluation
it reaps spiritual rewards that transcend the eternal.


Whoever has no rule over his own spirit
Is like a city broken down, without walls. ~ Proverbs 25:28


There is no defense for an angry fool.

He who has knowledge spares his words,
And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit. ~ Proverbs 17:27


Knowledge is key in reaching understanding which directly
influences spirit over the lower cardinal desires of flesh.


The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression. ~ Proverbs 19:11


Thoughtfulness inspires mercy.

But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.
~ 2nd Timothy 2:23


Too often festering anger fuels more than is reasonable.
Road rage for instance terrorizes the land leaving carnage upon all hearts.
Enraged irritable hearts scorn others without the calm compassion God
created for us to be, and to passionately show love for one another.
A land without God is surely to be pitied.


A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
~ Proverbs 15:1


Caring hearts are the medicine most mothers preserve for their children.
Anger is rebellion away from the unity we seek, for in our families,
and generally, among our fellow countrymen.


Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
but what is good for necessary edification, ... ~ Ephesians 4:29


Anger is often associated with vulgar speech
as it rips into the pain contempt holds.


"But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother
without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. ... ~ Matthew 5:22


To have understanding over condemnation frees a soul to soar
reaching truly unlimited heights. Flat anger shunts the vertical connection
with the eternal. Some people live to complain about just everything,
including their own lives. This is not living but suffering a slow death.
To be upset just for the sake of being upset severs the heart
from the joy God wants us to embrace.

Anger seems to have different extents or depths.
Simply, one could be a compulsive complainer. More severe
would be judging another as stupid. The greatest depth
would be to actual hate or loathe a specific individual.


A gift in secret pacifies anger, And a bribe behind the back, strong wrath.
~ Proverbs 21:14


Tender gifts in love draws smiles from even dragons.

... let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath
of man does not produce the righteousness of God. ~ James 1:19-20


Classic to His word is to listen patiently avoiding petty wrath. Knowledge
again is key and instrumental in producing a sound soul, or for that matter,
a civilization built upon decency and respect. Without knowledge the
wisdom of righteousness is trampled by the wrathful ignorant.
What is wrapped around oneís little finger owns
oneís moment; patience or impatience.


... put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy,
filthy language out of your mouth. ~ Colossians 3:8


A clean heart is a controlled heart.
More often than not it is our mouth that expresses our anger.
Relentless at times, we have all heard zip it.


Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
~ Colossians 3:21


Anger is a vicious cycle destroying the hearts of the young advancing
rebellion and disrespect for all. There is no love where children are
abandoned to the wolves of their own making. Social diseases can
only be cured by a return to God sincerely beseeching His mercy.


... to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle,
showing all humility to all men. ~ Titus 3:2


We are all just single fragile souls.
His call reaches out for all true believers to humble themselves,
releasing despicable anger and adopting a gracious nature.


Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking
be put away from you, with all malice. ... ~ Ephesians 4:31-32


It is not hard to understand what God desires.
It is in the application that we find the challenge; to leave
the beast behind one must take on those attributes He declares.


Anger is a foolís paradise
Anger is buried deep in the spirit of a fool
Fools do not seek understanding
Control over the spirit refines the mighty
A calm knowledgeable man is cautious in his words
Willpower is what brings forgiveness of others
Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes
Answer softly rather than harshly
In all you say, may it impart grace to the hearers
Gifts given privately heal anger
Swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
Do not provoke your children
Find peace and be gentle in all humility to all
Forgive one another, just as God in Christ forgave you

Darkness holds only numbness.
Kindness overcomes anger.
Light is an opportunity to shine while in the fading darkness.
It is a fact that anger is one letter short of danger.


God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.
~ Psalms 7:11


Patiently God waits for souls to gain a sense of right and wrong.
His anger will condemn all that is wicked.


... The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,
And will not at all acquit the wicked. ... ~ Nahum 1:2-3


There will be no mercy for those that show no mercy
and are against His called for ways.


Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? ~ Psalms 2:1

... they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a
debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; ... ~ Romans 1:28-31


Foolish ones claim superiority in their wrath as
destiny will claim them to the ungodly pit they sow.


... And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. ~ Psalms 2:11-12


Unless the rage is silenced and trust put in God,
unending turmoil will devour souls in darkness.


"... in the latter days, because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to
provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands." ~ Deuteronomy 31:29


There are those that plot seeking their own gain over glorifying God.
Selfish self-seeking souls will not gain His favor.


... For a fire is kindled by My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell;
It shall consume the earth with her increase, ... ~ Deuteronomy 32:21-22


As worship skews to become entertaining for the privileged,
He will not recognize the proud heights they will fall from.


"So the LORD'S anger was aroused against Israel, and He
made them wander in the wilderness forty years, ..." ~ Numbers 32:13


Messages have been given to submit in thankful prayer
to Him over the arrogance of self-seeking complainers.
To be content in that He is is to possess value beyond compare.


So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart
had turned from the LORD God ... ~ 1st Kings 11:9-10


To turn to oneís own ways against the will of God
will invite His fierce wrath upon His revealing.


If you say, "Surely we did not know this," Does not He
who weighs the hearts consider it? ... ~ Proverbs 24:12


Ignorance may not be enough as goodness is a form of eternal truth.
One must seek deeply asking His divine inspiration to expose the truth
humbly. There are fundamental truths that can not be changed
as a soul approaches the supreme of all deities.


Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things
the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. ~ Ephesians 5:6


Excuses are water in the sand. People try to justify why it is okay
to ignore His commands while embracing the desires of flesh.
The flesh is a test that reveals the character of the soul.

If our wrath is greater than our love we are in serious jeopardy
of eternal damnation. He who has an ear let that one hear
what the spirit has to say to the souls that would know.


For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against
all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, ... ~ Romans 1:18


Truth is truth and that can not be changed. Lies have no enduring power.

But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart
you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and
revelation of the righteous judgment of God, ...": ~ Romans 2:5-6


For those that deny or choose to ignore His ways
will engage in the most horrific and terrible of all realizations,
upon His appearing. It is our deeds that the Lord watches very closely.
How genuine is a soul who turns from considering the will of the Almighty?
Wrath can often be associated with a broken heart. No one else can
pick a soul up off the carpet, that muster must come from within
as in a commitment to stand for something greater.


... to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey
unrighteousness--indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, ...
~ Romans 2:7-9


An inheritance of blessing and or condemnation is coming for
each soul rising from the earthís incubator in the womb of His creation.


... And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of
prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.'" ~ Matthew 21:12-13


"... Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" ~ John 2:15-16

God has shown His wrath is for those that take, especially
advantage taken of His truth to pursue rewards of self interest.
Oppression is a construction of man not condoned by God.
The self-seeking will not find God.


... You are indeed angry, for we have sinned-In these ways we continue;
And we need to be saved. ~ Isaiah 64:5


"And these will go away into everlasting punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life." ~ Matthew 25:46


Salvation is to be desired. What will be will be.
To remember His ways possesses great value beyond measure.
Jesus was ignored, abandoned, humiliated, hurt, abused, betrayed,
deceived, and rejected. Although we too experience all of these things,
He instructs us to seek His salvation in a spirit of joy. Rejoicing in the
ways of the Lord frees one from the guilt of evil deeds gone past.


... I will soon pour out My fury, And spend My anger upon you; I will judge
you according to your ways, And I will repay you for all your abominations.
~ Ezekiel 7:8


... having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through Him. ~ Romans 5:9


For all the suffering inflicted by the cold hearted,
their fate is worse than if they had never known.
Humbled under Jesus, His sacrifice is our salvation.


By the blast of God they perish, And by the breath
of His anger they are consumed. ~ Job 4:9


... who may stand in Your presence When once You are angry?
... To deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah ~ Psalms 76:7-9


Godís righteous anger will repel the heartless from His healing presence.
If we are found to be oppressors, where then do we stand
with God who saves the oppressed?


... do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written,
"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. ~ Romans 12:17-19


While we live waiting for His revealing, He calls us to stay under His care.
He desires that we put off anger as it will be His final judgment
that will take precedence over all that is wicked. Anger
needs to be seen for what it is, an illness of spirit.
Spiritual wealth is found in peace.


Godís anger will bare all
God is angry with the wicked every day
God is jealous and will avenge those wicked
Blessed are all those who serve and trust in Him
Evil provokes the LORD to anger
Worshipping things made by God infuriates Him
The LORD became angry with Solomon as he turned away
The LORD considers all in His wisdom of judgment
Let no one deceive you with empty words suppressing truth
Hard hearts will not find His mercy
Worshipping God is not of the tangible but in spirit and truth
Judgment will come according to our ways
In a moment God will extinguish evil
"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord

Godís Anger will reveal the truth of all lies.
Darkness holds the shame of nothing.
