When He Shows No Anger

There cannot be a greater evidence of God's hatred and wrath than His refusing to correct men for their sinful courses and vanities!

Where God refuses to correct there God resolves to destroy! There is no man so near God's axe, so near the flames, so near hell, as he whom God will not so much as spend a rod upon!

God is most angry
when He shows no anger!

Who can seriously meditate upon this, and not be silent under God's most smarting rod?

[Thomas Brooks]

Revelation 3:19 ... As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Job 5:17 ... Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
Psalm 94:12 ... Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;
Hebrews 12:6 ... For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
