God's Anger for rebellion
God's Anger and Compassion
The Lord grows angry when He is ignored, defied, disobeyed, and yet, God always looks with compassion and draws people to Himself.
"For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. Isa 54:7 In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you," says the LORD your Redeemer. Isa 54:8
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD , Who has compassion on you. Isa 54:10
"Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion. Isa 60:10 I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD , the deeds for which He is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us- yes, the many good things He has done for the house of Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses. Isa 63:7 The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD . Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing. Isaiah 51:3
When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not bring upon them the destruction he had threatened. Jonah 3:10
Lamentations 3 1I
am the man who has seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. 2 He has
driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light; 3
indeed, he has turned his hand against me again and again, all day long.
9 He has barred my way with blocks of stone; he has
made my paths crooked. 19 I remember my affliction and my
wandering, the bitterness and the gall. 20 I well remember them, and
my soul is downcast within me. 21 Yet this I call to mind and
therefore I have hope:
"I will strengthen the house of Judah and save the house of Joseph. I will restore them because I have compassion on them. They will be as though I had not rejected them, for I am the LORD their God and I will answer them. Zech 10:6
