6 For [dia] which things' sake [hos] the wrath [orge] of God [theos]
cometh [erchomai] on [epi] the children [huios] of disobedience: [apeitheia]KJV-Interlinear
6 For it
is on account of these things that the wrath of God will come, NASB
Wrath here, represents the justice of God coming in phenomenal
fury, the likes of which no creature has ever seen.
The reason that Gods
justice is coming, is because there are those who pursue disobedience, obstinacy,
rebelliousness.These are the same
qualities that the angels maintained, who rebelled against God, long ago.
And so the typical
human characteristic is to hold firm with their opinions, despite generations
of obvious limitations and failures in human affairs.
2 in which you formerly
walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the
power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of
the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, NASB
Satan is the author of
lies and the promoter of all evil.However, Satan only initiated the pattern of evil.Humanity, with his rejection of truth, steps
right in and promotes evil very well without any encouragement or prodding from
All ungodliness, all
unrighteousness, all lies, all evil as it were, are an attempt, whether
consciously or not, to suppress truth.Simply by ignoring truth, simply by being indifferent to truth, or by
being more vocal or antagonistic toward truth, all of these are on equal terms
in their opposition toward truth.
You do not have to be a
serial killer, a Hitler, a terrorist, or up to your eyes in crime, in order to
be a disciple of evil.The churches,
governments, celebrities of the world, are full of self-righteous evil
promoters, focused on their own agenda, and are totally indifferent toward Gods
truth and plan. That is more evident in our current day, than ever before,
because of the swiftness with which information can travel these days.
The world is saturated
with anti-truth philosophies, and beliefs, and opinions so much so, that even
the media takes up the promotion of falsehoods without any analysis or
questioning, and the masses of people believe virtually anything that hits the
airwaves or is accepted as the popular view.
Truth, preserves life, the environment, prosperity,
security and ultimately happiness.
All rejection of truth,
no matter how harmless it may seem, is a rejection and destruction to everything,
repeat everything, that is good.Even harmlessness is one of the more popular
arguments used to justify rejection of truth, or alternate lifestyles, or
alternate views as they are often called.
And it is because of
this maintained attitude, and refusal to see the errors of their ways, that Gods wrath, Gods justice, or judgment, is coming.
The word for coming, erchomai, means to be already on its way.
Judgment is coming, and
it is coming with phenomenal fury.Its
arrival is already set into motion.No
matter what man wants to think about himself, or of his abilities, or his
outlook on life or the future, it is all based on lies, and lies are never
supported by facts, and views held up by nothing, have no option but to
collapse into oblivion.
The only things that
hold this world together are the believers who pursue truth in their life.It does not take many people to keep the
world afloat.The flood did not come
until Noah and his family of only eight people, boarded the Ark.Then and only then, did perhaps tens of
millions or more, die.
Lot was only a single
person, and yet Sodom and the cities of the valley were not destroyed until he
left the city.A promise kept for
Today, we presumably
have millions of believers worldwide, so our world is reasonably safe, but not immune
to hard times.And while we have many
warnings of swine flu, of bird flu, of aids, of terrorists, of economic
downturns, and many more warning signs of the disobedience (stubborn rejection)
by humanity, sooner or later, people will either change or the hard times will only
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
