Face it. God just kicks serious a**. I love ‘im.
Rent/watch ‘The Rite” (which came out in the theaters early this year) with Anthony Hopkins. I had no clue how the movie was made by hellywood but it was as pro-God as it gets, just like The Book of Eli. You have to get the devil’s name or else you cannot cast it out properly...and God kicks demon ass.
You know, there is a bible verse where it mentions demons "trembling" in fear of Almighty God. You're right - God is SO POWERFUL and complete, that He puts fear into the terrible!
We don't always contemplate this, even Christians. To us, Christ is just "our buddy" and this "Mercy Mercy Mercy" guy all the time. Almost a "wimp" if we admitted it.
But..............He isn't. He is fierce. He is frightening to those He hates (and yes.....God hates). God has emotions, and He gave us His some of His emotions. One of those is anger. God has Righteous Anger. To get in His Way......is terrible. Frightening. Horrible.
Christ is a God of Mercy. But, when I think about the vermin, the demons, struggling to get out of His way....I have to smile.
