THE SPIRIT OF ANGER
Bless you brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord. It is a great privileged to share the word of God with you today. Our message today is about the Spirit of Anger. In the book of Ephesians chapter 4: 26-27 “In your anger do not sin” Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold”. Anger can make us incomplete, and create instability in our life. If you don’t deal with the spirit of anger in your life, that spirit will deal with you.
There are two kinds of anger, there are positive anger and there are negative anger, which is been manipulated by evil spirit. Example of positive anger is when Jesus went to the synagogue and see that the house of God is been use for buying and selling, He did not stand up somewhere and looking, or grumbling to himself while all these is going on. Neither does He complain to his disciple about it. He was provoke and do something about it, by scattering the whole market and chase everyone away.
When you see injustice going around you, it’s right to be angry about it and if possible, do something about it. It is normal to be angry when you see evil going on and prevailing in your community. It is permitted by God, there is no sin in these, but do these with humility and respect.
Fighting for what is good and right does not make you evil. Dont close your eyes and allow others to be oppress or to be treated unjustly, do something or say something about it. Christianity does not make us foolish but makes us wise and bold and full of confidence of Christ, to speak and to act. It doesn’t matter who is happy and who is hurt, what count is that you stand for the truth and justice. And the truth shall set you free.
There are also evil anger that is been manipulated by evil spirit, anger that cause chaos and disorderliness is your life and in your household. We all have these anger in us, some can control there own anger, while some not. No one is perfect, because the word of God says “all men have sin and fall short of the glory of God”, it is because of God’s grace and love that we are who we are today. It is not by strength or by power that one prevail, it is by the help of God. If we don’t deal with this evil anger in us, gradually and slowly, we will be turning away from the righteousness of God, and by turning from God’s righteousness, we are given the Satan a foothold in our life.
The only way to come our of the evil anger, is by talking to yourself first, tell yourself how long will you continue this way, and then turn to God and make him know what is going on in your life that you are tired of. God is the only way out of every problems that confront us.
May the mercy of God abide with you and your family. God Bless you.
