There is nothing I love more than how God loves us. However, modern preaching emphasizes God’s love and ignores God’s wrath. God’s wrath is coming, so we must warn people who aren’t following the truth about Jesus Christ that wrath is coming, and they will not escape unless they place their faith in Jesus Christ and follow Him.

Don’t let false teachers deceive you into becoming complacent, for that is exactly what the ruler of this world wants from you. We live in a world ruled by Satan.

Summary: The Thessalonians’ Faith and Example, Paul’s Ministry to the Thessalonians

…and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:10

even Jesus, which delivered us from wrath to come; which is revealed from heaven against sin, and comes upon the children of disobedience; which all men are deserving of, even God’s elect themselves, but shall not partake of, because they are not appointed to it, but to salvation; and because they are justified by the blood and righteousness of Christ, and so are saved from it; not from all fears about it, and apprehensions of it, which they are filled with, especially under first awakenings, and sometimes afterwards when under afflictive providences; but they are delivered from the thing itself, by which is meant vindictive punishment, even from all punishment in this life, for there is no wrath mixed with any of their mercies or their chastisements; and from all punishment in the world to come, which will fall heavy on others; and that because Christ has bore their sins, and the wrath of God and curse of the law, due unto them, in their room and stead. John Gill

For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity (uncleanness) or any attempt to deceive, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness.
~ 1 Thessalonians 2:3-5

nor of uncleanness; it did not spring from any impure affection for any sin, for popular applause, or worldly interest; nor did the ministers of it connive at uncleanness in others, or practise it themselves, as did the false teachers; but bore their testimony against it, both by word and example, and taught no doctrine that encouraged to it; but, on the contrary, the doctrine which is according to godliness, and which teaches men to deny ungodliness and worldly lustsJohn Gill


flattering words. Paul used three disclaimers to affirm the purity of his motives for ministry:

(1) he denied being a smooth-talking preacher who tried to make favorable impressions in order to gain influence for selfish advantage;

(2) he did not pretend to be poor and work night and day (cf. 1Th_2:9) as a pretense to get rich in the ministry at their expense; and

(3) he didn’t use his honored position as an apostle to seek personal glory, only God’s glory (cf. 1Co_10:31).    by John MacArthur

On account of these the wrath of God is coming. ~ Colossians 3:6

On account of these the wrath of God is coming. ~ Colossians 3:6


The doctrine of the wrath of God has fallen on hard times. In today’s world, any concept of God’s wrath upsets our modern sentiments. It’s too disconcerting, too intolerant.

We live in a day where we have set ourselves as the judge and God’s character is on trial. “How can hell be just?” “Why would God command the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites?” “Why does God always seem so angry?”

The fact that so many people struggle with these questions, and many more like them, means that more than ever right thinking is needed about the doctrine of God’s wrath. It is needed for motivation for Christian living, fuel for proper worship, and as a toolbox to confront objections to Christianity.
