God’s Wrath Controversy Made Clear

There is a lot of confusion on what God’s wrath is.  In Revelation 14:9-11 we are clearly told what the wrath of God is:

[9] And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
[10] The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
[11] And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

God’s wrath is Hell.  The wrath of God is where a person is assigned to at the time of death.   The judgments that brings about death is the harvest at the end of the age Rev. 14:15.   1 Thess. 5: 9+ addresses this as well.  We are not assigned to wrath but to SALVATION. Read the follow-up verses.  It’s not talking about the temporal.  Heaven is our assignment.  Precious in the sight of Him is the death of His saints.  Death is not associated with wrath other than the assignment afterward… heaven, or hell?  God pours out His judgments whether trumpet or bowl,  and that harvest at the end of the age, brings about the eternal result.   Look back on the trumpets.  Prior to them man declares that God’s wrath has come.  Man has a temporal view.   The Word doesn’t declare God’s wrath until the last trumpet where the unjust is judged (i.e. sentenced to Hell). That where the wrath of God occurs.  Here in Rev. 14:9-11 it tells us what God’s wrath is, it’s the fire and brimstone that gives no rest day or night forever and ever.  The words in the Greek that are translated into English for wrath are different concerning 1 Thess. 5:9 (or-gay) and the bowl judgements in Rev. 16 (thnmos).

Consider for a moment, a Christian dying a long agonizing death of cancer,  then consider one of God’s judgments of His indignation being poured out and the wicked is given an almost instantaneous death of a tsunami, or a bullet to the head. The unbeliever thinks that is the end of it, and they might even consider that a sweet way to go.  The temporal removal of the spirit is not God’s wrath.  Hell is!  Key word to remember here is assigned, or appointed.  It’s the end result, not the means of getting there.
