I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I lay my vengeance upon them.
Why do some blame God for their misfortune when in fact it was a result of their own doing? Doesn’t God has the right to lay vengeance to those who are faithless and disobedient? Does He need to bring disasters and calamities first for some people to realize that He is the Lord?
Many centuries ago, an ark was built because the people were wicked. It took Noah years to build the ark and probably the people were asking him why he built an ark. Now, when the strong storm and huge flood came, maybe they were calling out to Moses and asking for rescue but the door of the ark was already closed. The flood drowned the people and the whole earth.
I believe that we do not need a huge flood to come as an eye-opener. Knowing God’s power and capabilities is enough. If we truly love God, we should obey all His commandments and to be aware of these, we must read and listen to His words. Do not follow the wicked things that this world is executing for time will come that God will lay His vengeance. You never want to be one of those who will suffer from it.
We do not need to suffer from God’s wrath first before we believe that he is God. Bearing in mind what He can do as the God of gods and Lord of lords is a good start to get rid of His vengeance and wrath.
