Like many of you, I’ve heard that GOD is love (1 John 4:8). But that’s only part of that verse, and it is only one characteristic of our HOLY GOD. Thankfully, our HOLY GOD is so much more!
Since our Western religious glasses have only colored us love-crazy, this article may be eye opening at best, controversial at worst. So, I apologize ahead of time. We don’t live in a rose-colored world, so it’s time to see GOD for who HE really is.
There are more names and Scriptures in the Bible that describe HOLY GOD’s character as JUDGE, JUSTICE, EQUITY, WARRIOR, KING, LORD, CREATOR, MASTER, HUSBAND, FRIEND, etc., than the part of one line that says GOD is Love. Because many members of the Body actually do not read the Bible, it was easy to mix this demonic deception into the “tolerance and cheap grace” messages of weak, fame-hungry ministers. To push the envelope even further, the message of today’s “church” is now based on simple math.
If God is love, then love must be god.
God = love; then love = god…
This is demonic. Reject it whenever you hear it.
Let’s deal with vengeance. GOD is Vengeance. The ultimate AVENGER. Hallelujah!
“‘See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god beside me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand. if I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and will repay those who hate me.’” Deuteronomy 32:39,41 ESV
Yep, that’s in the same Bible as “GOD is love.”
Or how about this one? It’s one of my favorites.
“For thus says the Lord: ‘Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken, and the prey of the tyrant be rescued, for I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children. I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine. Then all flesh shall know that I am the Lord your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.’” Isaiah 49:25-26 ESV
Same Bible. Here’s one from the New Testament. JESUS said this!
“And in anger his master delivered him to the jailers, until he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.” Matthew 18:34-35 ESV
Ouch! Spiritual and/or physical jail doesn’t sound good.
So what is our role as HIS sidekicks?
“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’ To the contrary, ‘if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.’”
The LORD wants us to learn this warrior secret. Give food to your enemies. Not money, clothing, books, shoes, lodging. These create unholy agreements. The Bible shows us that people are bought and sold for money, clothes are given to those who are naked, shoes represent destinies, and lodging is for a friend or countryman. Food and drink are for everyone.
In the spirit realm, feeding our persecutors translates to coals that are burning. As in, the fiery vengeance of GOD is applied in the physical realm by this prophetic act of kindness.
HE also wants us to forgive our persecutors and pray for them, such that we can inherit the KINGdom of heaven (Matthew 5:10-12). Do good (as lead by HOLY SPIRIT) to those who spitefully use us. Another warrior key.
But that’s it! The key here is that the LORD wants our hearts to stay clean, our minds to stay wise, our mouths to pray all the Scriptures.
Expect vindication from the true AVENGER. Those areas where satan and his agents have wronged the GOD news of JESUS CHRIST and the Body will be avenged. HIS vengeance is already at work.
*All Scriptures are in the New King James Version of the Bible, unless otherwise noted.
