This is not your everyday “Sunday school or Bible class” question, what do you say and “Holy Scripture” to backup “sound doctrine” strong “exegesis” that we can be ready to give every man a answer the Hope that lie within us.❤

The wrath of God is against all manner of sin, which is in essence selfishness in all its forms because it is against the love of God, which is selflessness.

@PloughBoy where in the Bible does it say that God's wrath is a manifestation of his love? Or is this an assumption or inference on your part?

You answer a question with a couple of question? Mmmm.
Like I said:This is not your everyday “Sunday school or Bible class” question❤

It's not. The wrath of God is for the sinners and unbelievers that remain on Earth after God has come taken us Christians home to Heaven.

Blake, you are going to come up with the answer.
Look at it, and meditate on the Word of God.

This is a true conundrum. And one of the contradictions in the bible that also troubles me. As there are many such as it was totally ok to make war on others in the old testament but not in the new.... All I can think is that some things in the bible have been altered to make it look silly.... And to test our Faith. God's existence is true.

The wrath of God can be seen also as a correction ( discipline ) or rebuke by Him in our lifes. And this mostly goes for those who are sons of God. That's why is having to do with His love. The love that wants to prevent us from falling apart or going astray where we can really get hurt. So He wants to warn us. Many times we don't know the purpose of certain correction, but He does very well. He knows where our path may lead us and He wants to prevent us from wrong and show us the right one. There are many verses in the book of Proverbs talking about the right path and chastening, but I'll leave you this one in Hebrews 12:5-11
"And you have forgotten the exportation which speaks to you as to sons: My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives." So we see that this chastening is mainly for the sons, because He loves them with a special love. They belong to Him. Obviously He loves every other person aswell, but they wouldn't understand His love and chastening. On the other side aswell He doesn't want people to follow Him just because of His wrath, but because they have chosen so, because of His love. That's why if He corrects our lifes is mainly with the purpose to show us His love. This applies to His sons but it can be toward other people too, if He Has a special purpose for them. He knows the pain our path can lead us to, that's why He prefers to rebuke us, that is painful too, but just for a moment. His love points at the eternity, meaning He gives much more value to eternity than us. We instead give more value to the temporary things. He wants to give us eternal life and peace. How much more is this than what is temporary. That's why we need to endure trough the hardship and accept the correction.

Let’s us take note: The Discipline [correction] of God and “The Wrath of God” are two different things. Remember, it does not take a “theologian” to get this.❤ Hint: God’s Wrath has to be satisfied, for your sin, God’s wrath is never pour out upon the true children of God, Why?

I understand what are you saying here. That the wrath of God was satisfied trough the sacrifice of His Son. And that's something so important and fondamentale. Without that me and you wouldn't be standing and speaking on this topic right now. But look at this verse here an see my point : " For the time has come for judgement to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? " 1 Peter 4:17
It might sound a bit harsh, but to me the word judgement here is having to do with that wrath aswell. And it applies to believers only. Meaning that we are going to experience judgement here on this life to escape it from the future. Or better said we are going to be judged, corrected here and the ungodly ( those who do not believe ) there in the judgement day, after this life. The judgement for those who have believed will be different. Yes the sacrifice of Christ saved them from the wrath to come, but they still gonna be judged here and rebuked so that they can appear as gold being purified. It is a process that we go through while here on earth. And all of this is for His glory. We experience when God disagrees with something or when He is not happy with us or even angry. " Your wrath lies heavy upon me, and You have afflicted me with all your waves. " Psalm 88:7 ( like this there are other verses aswell. ) And He is still a loving father. So loving that He doesn't want us to perish and even corrects us for that purpose.
And this can be only experienced by a man of God. While the wrath of God remains on those who haven't believe in the son - yes, but for the life to come, for judgement there. And we have the privilege for us to happen now. That's why aswell many people don't experience His wrath now. They do whatever and nothing happens. And that's why they think they can do whatever. But they are wrong. One day will come when they will experience that. That's why man is not suppose to look for revenge now, because the Lord will do that one day. Everyone will face Him. But many times we want things to happen now. Justice and everything. Because we lack patience and faith aswell. Jesus came with forgiveness and everyone needs to follow that, but one day there will be wrath. Better to be able to accept it now and if something is wrong in us to let God do his work.

I know that 'God's wrath has to be satisfied' is widely taught, but I don't know of anywhere in the Bible that actually teaches this.

Ok, we are not going to beat ourselves up on this, for it is not important at this time but collectively it will. Theologically it is express in “Holy Scripture” implicitly.
1Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
3He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
4Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
8By oppression a and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished. b
9He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.
10Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lordmakes c his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lordwill prosper in his hand.
11After he has suffered,
he will see the light of lifed and be satisfied e ;
by his knowledge f my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, g
and he will divide the spoils with the strong, h
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.(Isaiah 53). NIV.

And, Ivan it seems so strange that you mention this “and judgment will begin at the house of God” I have been dealing with this for awhile. I started to do a post on it this morning. I told myself I didn’t feel like dealing with this subject today, now you bring it up. (You are wrong) LOL.

You're going to have to draw out the implications for me. You've quoted a passage that's about the Lord's servant, not the wrath of God.

The “Holy Scripture” I quoted was bringing Jesus my savior into view, Because when I see it “ I LOVE it” Every time I see it, it fills my heart with so much joy”. It has nothing to do with the “preceding” paragraph. My bad, sorry. LOL , it was not up for debating or analyzing. totally my bad.❤

Yes, I understand. Maybe my answer wasn't in line with what this thread is meant to be, but it was just what I felt to say. And I didn't mean it for condemnation. I read what you posted on the other thread and I agree with it. And what I meant anyway was that the correction or discipline is Father's work of love in our lifes.
