5 Reasons there is No Coming Wrath on Our World:
1. When John the Baptist spoke of the SOON coming wrath it was further identified as so near that the ax is already laid to the root. This happened (see Malachi 4) 40 years later in the destruction of Jerusalem. There is no way to project that into a time 2000 years later.
2. Paul the inspired Apostle wrote this in Romans 5:15, " For THE LAW RESULTS IN DIVINE WRATH, but where there is no law there is no transgression [of it either]." It is not that we are simply not under law but under grace. It is much more. The Law, its commandments, its priesthood, its expectations, its feasts, everything was destroyed by fire in 70AD. There is no wrath coming on America or the nations because there is NO system or covenant of law. In fact, America isn't Jewish, nor was America there at the giving of the Law. Otherwise God has reinstituted the very thing that he made sure was destroyed.
3. There is no mention of a future wrath of God anywhere in the Bible that speaks to OUR future. The book of Revelation was written to believers in THEIR day about the soon coming destruction of Jerusalem. As such at the destruction of Babylon (Jerusalem... ie, the city where the Lord was crucified, Rev. 11:8) there is an announcement that the wrath of God is finished (Rev. 15:1)! And the only reason he could bring THAT wrath was because they were under the LAW. No law, according to Paul, no wrath.
4. There is no scripture in the Bible that says God poured out his wrath on Jesus at the cross. Rather every scripture indicates that it was men that killed him (see Psalm 22). See also Isaiah 53:
3, He was despised, and rejected OF MEN; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised; and WE esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne OUR griefs, and carried OUR sorrows; yet WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD AND AFFLICTED.
In fact, we find in the next chapter of Isaiah (54:7-10), sequentially after the cross, God saying wrath was what Israel would receive,
“For a mere moment I have forsaken you,
But with great mercies I will gather you.
With a little WRATH I hid My face from YOU (Israel) for a moment;
But with EVERLASTING KINDNESS I will have mercy on you,”
Says the Lord, your Redeemer.
“For this is LIKE THE WATERS OF NOAH TO ME;
For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth,
So have I SWORN THAT I WOULD NOT BE ANGRY WITH YOU NOR REBUKE YOU.
For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But MY KINDNESS SHALL NOT DEPART FROM YOU, NOR SHALL MY COVENANT OF PEACE BE REMOVED”
Says the Lord, who has mercy on you."
This was fulfilled between AD30 and AD70 culminating in the destruction of Jerusalem, the end of the temporal wrath of God.
5. Does this mean the God revealed in Jesus is different than the God revealed in the Hebrew Scriptures? No it reveals that PEOPLE from the garden have chosen to relate to God in two ways... the tree of life, or the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Do the good and avoid the evil and you will become like God is what humanity chose... (the temptation of satan) and chose again at the giving of the Law... (do good and I will bless you. Sin and I will curse you). It was the Law that brought wrath, and as such by rejecting Jesus and murdering the saints, all the justice of the Law came on one generation in 70AD where he removed the covenant of Law forever. (Can you show me the ark of the covenant? Can you show me the the tablets of stone? Can you prove you are from the Levitical priesthood when the records were burned up in the fire when the temple was destroyed?)
In other words, Jesus destroyed HUMANITIES method of relating to God through self effort and human achievement stretching back all the way to the Garden. Then he judged all the bloodshed against unrighteousness in 70AD. Mt 23:
34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon THIS generation.
With great passion Jesus pleaded with his generation to align with grace and the new covenant instead of the Law system which was about to be destroyed. It was like one of us being told repeatedly that a tornado was headed right for our home, but we refuse to listen.
Of course there are many more, and in this short post I cannot fully explain each point. I humbly ask you to consider these first. Are they true? I believe that they are. Let them sit in your heart and see if God will speak to you about it.
