God of Vengeance

Podcast Discussion Notes

 

Why does a loving God show wrath?

 

Ezekiel 25:17 ESV

 

1. How does injustice make you feel? What do you default to? Do you hate? Do you want the maximum penalty? Have you ever said or heard someone say “I hope they rot in hell!”?​

2. Is it possible that your view of God’s vengeance is tainted by yours?​

 

“The vengeance of God is to help aid man, and point man back to the Father, not to destroy” from podcast

 

Romans 1:18 ESV

3. Have you ever known someone, maybe a friend, who was a bad influence on everyone? How did their influence affect the lives of the people around them?​

4. Can you see how our current culture influences people into deceived and harmful lifestyles?

Even in God’s wrath, He restrains Himself

Moses Intercedes for Israel - Exodus 32

5. ​How does God’s restraint help you to view His actions of vengeance?​

 

God’s greatest wrath was poured out on Himself, on His own son
