Is God Angry?

Psalm 103:8 says, “The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”
Psalm 145:8 says, “The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.”
Many people have this image of God that He is just sitting on His throne angry, mad at the world and everyone living in it. Can God get angry and frustrated? Absolutely, but since He is slow to anger, it’s hard to believe He is angry all of the time. In fact, He is plentiful in grace and mercy! God’s anger is the result of us acting outside of our nature as sons and daughters. Once we recognize who we are in Him, we won’t provoke God to anger, but live in His grace and mercy. The truth is that God’s anger is a jealous anger, similar to that of a husband being jealous over his wife. Why? He wants all of her! Just a piece of her heart will not satisfy. Christ does not want part of the heart of the church, but complete and total surrender to Him! It is easy to do when the church is not scared of an angry abuse, but realize how much Christ loves and gave His life for us. It should be easier for us to submit to His authority! You should never want to pursue any other lovers. Since you are the focus of His attention, He should be the focus of yours!
There are examples in scripture where Jesus was angry:
1) Mark 10:14 says, “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” The word “displeased” means “to be moved with indignation”. He was moved with indignation due to His disciples mistreating children. Parents just wanted Jesus to touch and bless their kids, and in the disciples’ eyes Christ was too busy for that. When we prohibit children from walking and receiving the divine blessing and favor of the LORD, we provoke Jesus to anger, as well as fathers not declaring blessings over their children!
2) Mark 11:12-17 says, “12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. 15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; 16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Two things we must take note here. First of all, Jesus cursed the fig tree because it was full of leaves and had no fruit. Secondly, Jesus overthrew tables and chairs in the temple because the Jews were selling animals to be sacrificed in the court of the Gentiles. This hindered their worship, which belittled the worship of God by the Gentiles in the eyes of the Jews. Therefore, Christ expressed His frustration with fruitless believers and racism.
3) John 11:33,38 says, “When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled…Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.” The word “groan” means, “to snort or sigh with anger, to have indignation on, or to blame”. Mary had just said, “Had you been here my brother would not have died.” Then, some people who were there said, “Could this man who opened the eyes of the blind caused this man to not have died?” In both situations He groaned because nobody else had faith. It proved Jesus can do a work even when faith is not present. They looked at what could have been and were now preparing for their final goodbye’s and a funeral, but God does not move by our time. Our blaming, doubt and questioning of His ability can cause Christ to become angry. Do not do these things. Trust Him and have faith, knowing He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly and above all we could ever ask or think.
Three sources of Christ’s frustration were children being prohibited to come to Him, racism hindering other people’s worship, doubt in Christ performing a miracle! So, in other words, we position ourselves to walk in the grace, mercy and blessing of the LORD when we become one as a kingdom family, despite age or race, and we function in faith demonstrated through works!
