Romans 1:18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”.
When I was new kid in this great country, I was fascinated with everything. We didn’t have this much excitement back where I grew up, and so I wanted to consume as much culture as I can humanly take.
Keeping up with the entertainment world, pop culture, technology, big name celebrities made me feel important. If you would ask me what Madonna ate for lunch or where in the world was Angelina Jolie, I would’ve told you in a second. No wonder I was messed up. But don’t feel sorry for me. We are talking something that happened over ten years ago. Feel sorry for ones who are soaking on the things today. Let’s pray for them together in faith that they may see the light. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ may give them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him (Ephesians 1:17).
What is the Root to our problems?
Paul writes on the book of Romans 1:18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”.
If you tune in on any News Network or read your favorite local Newspaper at anytime you’ll quickly find out that there is never a good news in the world. They always display the worse of the world for purposes you will find out in my upcoming e-book (Unstuck Decoded).
As though the weight of the world is not overwhelming enough, you–yourselves are dealing with personal crisis. You lost a job, may be you’ve received a shocking doctor’s report or perhaps you are doing everything right but still feel a sense of void in your heart. You are trying to figure out what real is the problem but you cannot put the finger on it. And so I believe Romans 1:18 is the best place to start.
“The wrath of God is revealed from heaven”, Paul writes that it is against all, not some ungodliness and unrighteousness of men. When the scripture says “men” it means every human being.
The root to all problems in the world including your personal problems is answered right on this verse. It is the wrath meaning extreme anger, fury, irritation, displeasure of God against ungodliness and unrighteousness.
Now, I assume that all of you reading this post know that the Living God exists. And if for whatever reason you don’t believe God exists, let’s look at the following two verses “ because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” Romans 1:19-20.
When you wake up every morning to a sun displaying light, and in the evening you see the moon and stars, don’t you wonder how this all came about?. Look at the food you eat–do you notice what you put on your mouth comes out different later. Who is the factory worker inside your body?.
God has displayed His attributes everywhere. You cannot escape. Monkeys and science has no answers for you so is the evolution, and that’s why Paul says you have no excuse. You simply don’t. God is everywhere.
Psalmist wrote 139:1- 7 “Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word, you already know it. You are all around me—in front and in back— and have put your hand on me. Your knowledge is amazing to me; it is more than I can understand. Where can I go to get away from your Spirit? Where can I run from you?”
Since we know it is the wrath of God against all unrighteousness and ungodliness what do we do? I believe God provided the way of escape.
You cannot dodge God’s wrath through science, global warming, research, raising national debt, new president, charity, and so forth. The solution is found on John 3:16, Romans 5:8 and many other verses. In Short, He gave us a way out through His Son Jesus Christ. Have you receive Him today?
Till next time, let us receive together Numbers 6:24-26
