God's Wrath

 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.Gen 19:15

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;Rom 1:18
And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.1 Thess 1:10

The Wrath of God has been revealed though not in the way that our carnal minds expect it to be revealed. We often picture God's wrath as a fiery fire coming from the sky or as a flood of water falling from the sky to destroy sinners (God uses fire and water as symbols to make us have a better understanding of how we will be destroyed if we refuse to repent) . God operates in ways that our carnal minds are too limited to understand ( Isa 55:9 )

The wrath of God is going to manifest in a way that we will never expect and at a time that we least expect it to manifest (Matt 24:43 ) It will come at the time when humanity feels very wise and self sufficient in its sin and would not realize that it is  the so called wisdom and self sufficiency that they crave for that would consume their souls:

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.1 Cor 3:19
God is a merciful and loving God who doesn't want any man to perish but wishes that all men come to repentance (1 Tim 2:4) but when man stubbornly rejects God for sin, abandons His counsel and instead seeks his own self destructive ways, (sin) God is left with no choice than to leave man alone to self destruct:

I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.Psalm 81:10-12
For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.Psalm 73:27

Notice how Romans 1:18 (which i quoted above) stated that "the wrath of God is (present tense) revealed". In the verses that follow Vs 18, one would have expected to hear of fire or brimstone or even plagues but what do we see? All sort of Sins.

For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.Isa 9:18-19
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.1 Thess 5:3

It is the sin that we love that consumes us. It is the wisdom that we exalt over God's Wisdom that destroys us. It is when we feel the most secure in ourselves that we are the farthest from God. It was the craftiness of Gehazi that made Him and his seed (all who follow his steps) to become a leper ( 2 Kings 5:27 ) It was the tree that Eve exalted over God's tree that made her become a fool (Gen 3:6) It was the desire of Ananias and Sapphira to exhibit craftiness  that ended up destroying them (Acts 5).

A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:Psalm 92:6-7

God 's wrath is revealed through His forsaking of the land.It is when God forsakes the land that it is at its darkest (evilest) : It is revealed at a time when man feels he is having the greatest pleasure and feels like a god but is ignorant of the fact that his feeling of security in his sin is what is going to destroy him.
Stop trying to play smart with God.He is much smarter than you are. Don't be fooled by the gratification of following your hearts desire. It is what consumes your soul.Don't be fooled by what you can do without God. It is what cuts you off from your Life source (God's Spirit)  

Seek God and Live ( Amos 5:6 ) and be saved from the fire of sin that is currently consuming the world.They might seem to be having fun but it is the so called fun that they crave for that will eternally destroy their souls

Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.1 Cor 3:19

-And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.Jude 1:23
