Be Angry, But Don’t Sin

I’m angry – righteously angry…

I’m angry at the liberals who are disrespecting Christians and yet have no problem with holding up as proper, let’s say, oh Islam…

I’m angry at the so-called “Christians” who are so politically correct, as to hold up God’s Word as to not be the final authority regarding our faith…

The straw that broke the camel’s back was when I was looking at those “self-important actors” inciting violence from the stage. I became so enraged, I made a Facebook post – that I have since removed.

Yes, I can have a sharp tongue when the devil is working, and he was working tonight.

Ephesians 4:26-27, Paul writes:

“Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.”

“Lord, I’m so angry – I repent for the nasty post, but I need to shed this anger – please help.” The answer: “Go to sleep for a bit, you’ll be writing in a few hours about it when you have calmed down.”

He was right, here I am, about 5 hours later – about 1:00 AM – writing about it. I’m still angry – but I’m much calmer now. I’m thinking clearly, so here goes…

It’s OK to be angry – but don’t sin. Satan gets in there when you’re ticked off, and can wreak all kinds of havoc. I gave Satan the perfect opening, he took it, and reveled in the hurt feelings.

To the so-called “Christians” — if you are indeed saved, and I question that, you need to repent of questioning or even violating God’s Word.  Now I’ll do some preaching – some words that will hurt some of you, but you need to hear them.

Joe Biden was placed in authority in 2020. Many of us questioned on the method, but God does things in His way and His timing. I don’t happen to care for his policies and politics, and I’ll call him out when he needs to be called out.

Donald Trump, in 2016, was placed in authority by God, of these United States of America for a season – Just as Barack Obama, George W. Bush and all of the previous presidents, were placed in authority by God, for a season. Paul writes in Romans 13:1:

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”

That first line, “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities.”  This means that you have no biblical right to do what was done to this man.

He’s did what God was leading him to do – and you turn against him, because of what he might have said or done in his past?

You hypocrite! If you were held to the same standard, you couldn’t pass muster either. But he repented for his past, and was washed by the blood of the lamb. In other words, he’s saved, born again!

You self-righteous Christians, always judging. You are the reason that people hate us. because we “eat our own” – just as you are doing to your brother in Christ. Who are you to judge this man – when did you become Christ? Would you want to be a Christian, when you have people judging you all the time? You’re a terrible witness when you do this.

You can call out any sin you might find – but you cannot judge the man – that’s the job of Yeshua – Jesus – our Messiah, and only Him.

Let’s look at the rest of the passage in Romans 13. Verse 2…

“Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.”

This is pretty self-explanatory – what you are doing – resisting – is sin, and you can expect God to judge.  Resisting is sin, and I’m calling it out here!

“For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”

Paul writes in verses 3 and 4 that we’re not to fear those that God puts in authority. When we do what is right, we’re OK – its only when we do what’s wrong, that we should fear 0 we should fear God’s wrath.

“Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.”

Verse 5 sums it up – we have to be subject to our earthly authorities, to avoid God’s wrath, but also for our own consciences.

So Christian, if you are truly saved – repent, and stop being like the heathens – the unsaved ones out there destroying property, using foul language and generally going against what God has instituted. It’s what Satan wants, and he’s reveling in it.

And if there’s a question of your salvation – if you question whether you’re saved, then you’re probably not. Get on your knees now, and ask Yeshua – Jesus – your Messiah, to be your Savior and surrender your life to Him, and repent of your sin.

You may not agree with Mr. Trump, but you must respect him as your authority, and so far, everything he’s done is biblical – including the wall (see the book of Nehemiah).

And as for Biden – again, it’s not our job to judge him. His sinful ways and policies and politics are fair game – but other than that – his age and cognitive abilities for example, are not. One day, you may be in the same condition.

And on a final note, as it says in Acts 5:29 says, “But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’”

What this means is that if any government official, whoever it is – or any regulation or law, runs counter to the Word of God, the Bible trumps anything earthly. God’s Word always comes before man’s law.

Read Acts 5:17-42 – it’ll all be made clear.
