As Cancel Culture and the Woke Movement alter and erode the English language, one word is rarely mentioned or used today. Indignation occurs 87 times in the Bible with 12 different translations based upon the biblical context. You may hear someone say “indignant,” but what this individual is trying to express is anger or annoyance provoked by what is perceived as unfair treatment.
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God, Hebrews 10:26-27.
Anyone who fails to fully receive God’s free gift as their own as detailed by the apostle Paul in Romans 6:23 and Romans 10:9-11 disappoints the Creator of the universe. Romans 1:18-20 points to God’s invisible nature and attributes that are on display daily. God doesn’t force anyone to believe. Rather Revelation 3:20-21 describes the concept of freewill which ultimately determines your eternal destination.
Then I heard a mighty voice from the temple sanctuary saying to the seven angels, Go and empty out on the earth the seven bowls of God’s wrath and indignation, Revelation 16:1.
According to one of Jesus’ disciples, in the last days on earth, God’s wrath and indignation will be poured out in the form of seven calamities. John mentions God’s wrath and indignation together twice in one statement, a byproduct of His own frustration. John 3:16-17 reveals the goal of Jesus, God’s one and only son. God gives everyone a lifetime to believe, settling for your own death bed if necessary. If you want to avoid God’s indignation, make your decision today, 1 John 5:12-13.
