Memorise: For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalms 30:5

Read: Deuteronomy 31:16-19

  1. And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.
  2. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?
  3. And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.
  4. Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 17-19; Hebrews 13:1-25


We are in the last days and there are different waves of doctrines in order to deceive those who are on the right path to turn towards the path that leads to hell. Some preachers no longer talk about sin, they say God is love, He can never be angry with you; He can never hate you et cetera. No doubt our God is love. He is a merciful God as well as a consuming fire. There are different things that can make God angry; one of them is idolatry because He is a jealous God. In summary, sin can make God angry. Jeremiah 25:6 says:

“And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.”

However, as angry as God can be, His anger does not last forever. It is only but for a moment, but there is a condition to fulfil. When God is angry with a sinner, the best is to quickly repent and ask for mercy. Living in sin perpetually will not only make God angry but also bring His wrath upon the sinner. If you have been making God angry, today is another day for repentance. Ask God for mercy and never return to your vomit.

Prayer Points:

Father, please help me to always make you happy.

Hymn: Christian Seek Not Yet Repose

  1. Christian, seek not yet repose,
    Hear thy guardian angel say,
    “Thou art in the midst of foes:
    Watch and pray!
  2. Principalities and powers,
    Mustering their unseen array,
    Wait for thine unguarded hours:
    “Watch and pray!
  3. Gird thy heavenly armour on,
    Wear it every night and day,
    Ambushed lies the evil one:
    “Watch and pray!
  4. Hear the victors who overcame;
    Still they mark each warrior’s way,
    All with one sweet voice exclaim,
    “Watch and pray!
  5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
    Him thou lovest to obey;
    Hide within thy heart His word,
    “Watch and pray!
  6. Watch, as if on that alone
    Hung the issue of the day;
    Pray, that help may be sent down:
    “Watch and pray!
