The Lamb’s Wrath

Who ever heard of an angry lamb? It is hard to imagine. Jesus is called the Lamb of God, John the Baptist said: “…Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Christ came as the Lamb of God to pay for our sins on the cross.

The Lamb of God is a fitting title for the gentle Saviour. His tender heart was broken over the needs of people. He had time for the children, for beggars, for lepers and others who were hurting.

As the Lamb of God, he stood silent before his persecutors. Isaiah described Him as follows: “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth” (Isaiah 53:7).

Few in this world anticipate a coming day when the Lamb will display wrath. Yet that day is coming. And those who have not been saved and therefore miss the Rapture of the church will be here for the Tribulation — the wrath of the Lamb.

A Christian who was being ridiculed for going to a prayer meeting, said, “It is better to go to prayer meeting now than to wait for the largest prayer meeting the world will ever know. In that one, men will pray for the rocks and the mountains to fall on them to hide them from the wrath of The Lamb.”

Our God is a God of love — and justice.

Respond to His love today so you will not be here for the day of His wrath.
