Escaping God's anger

August 6, 2008

Zephaniah 2:3 YLT
(3) Seek Jehovah, all ye humble of the land, Who His judgment have done, Seek ye righteousness, seek humility, It may be ye are hidden in a day of the anger of Jehovah.

Seeking God is always a good idea. Some people would look at this verse and say that even Christians can go to hell. That Christians can not escape the anger of God. But one must look at things through the eye of the one that wrote it. While the Holy Spirit guided what was spoken and written, the man was not one who could understand fully that Jesus was coming to cleanse our sins so we could be right with God. He was telling those around him to do what they could and maybe they would escape the anger.

We have Jesus, they did not. We can escape the anger, they only could by right living and understanding what the scriptures pointed to. I, for one, am glad that I live now and have that assurance from God.
