Anger Issues

By: Maxine M.

Anger!! - Violent, strong displeasure over opposition, mistreatment conceived in the mind
Of all the human emotions we live with every day, anger is one of the strongest kind
It can bury itself down so deep it can take years of hard analyzing to find

But eventually it will come to the surface, many diverse forms it can take
Health issues may arise from anger’s stress; constantly tense nerves can, internal troubles, make
Hidden anger can destroy relationships, prevent reasonable decisions…at night keep one awake

Anger hangs out with hatred & jealousy, often it hides behind a smile…in silent refrain
It can also rise up at a moment’s notice, as Abel’s did when his brother Cain was slain
Exploding in violence, striking out at a person or situation, wanting to cause pain

When getting to the bottom of WHY most criminals commit crimes…why they are in jail
Most often it is deep-seated anger obtained in childhood hurts & rejections that still prevail
Unresolved issues of abuse, abandonment, disappointments, being told you’ll fail

When you’re ignored & others are chosen or preferred, their success creates anger in our inner being
Solomon wrote, “grievous words stir up anger”…a truth we are daily seeing
Whereas kind words heal a contentious situation, they are helpful and freeing

Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent (Proverbs 27:4), a tumultuous gush of emotional stress
It’s a consequence of Satan’s war with his Creator, his influence we need to address
In every life there are times of anger, feelings of animosity & vexation to confess

Now the Bible tells us that Jesus Himself became angry, but the righteous indignation kind
Grieved by the disrespect shown to His Father’s House, materialism & greed intertwined
We too need to boldly, but non-violently, speak up at the un-Godliness in the world we find

Our Heavenly Father is LOVE, and the Almighty cares about all of our needs
He’s not willing that any should perish, but that His call to repentance everyone heeds
Sending His own Son to die for every Soul; by accepting His GIFT sins can be forgiven & Salvation succeeds

BUT, because of the Lord’s absolute holiness, man’s sins must be repented of & turned aside
Now “sin” is ANY thought, deed, action or desire contrary to God’s law, or rejection of the facts for which Jesus died
Ignoring the Gift of Salvation His death brought…the ONLY way to Heaven is denied

These sins and disobedience contribute to “God’s cup of wrath”, which is getting fuller by the day
Held in check by His love, UNTIL the day of Judgement, when those not under the Blood will pay
‘It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God’ is what the Bible has to say

The earth and it’s people will feel the disastrous results when the cup is poured out
Since HE controls all nature, dramatic natural earthly changes are coming…no doubt
The fire of His fury, the promised NEW Heaven & earth, will certainly bring about

The only wise thing to do is be GONE when these terrible happenings take place
Since the loving Heavenly Father will “RAPTURE” those whom freely, the Son’s Gift, embrace
Safely in the presence of their Lord, the anger of the Father we will never face

In a twinkling of an eye, His true children will be “caught up” to Him in the air without assist
Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life…is YOUR name on that list?
Because He promised, “I’ll keep you from the “Hour of Trial” which WILL on earth exist

Because Jesus said (Matt 7:21-23), NOT ALL who say to Me Lord, Lord, on that day will prevail
A religious façade doesn’t necessarily mean you KNOW Him or He you…hypocrisy will fail
Since our Savior sees all things down to the smallest detail

So look deep in your heart, find out if there is still some hidden anger there
Confess it!! Put it in Jesus’ hands, understand how any unresolved anger is error
Jesus said, “My peace I leave you”, so let peace fill anger’s spot; trials will be easier to bear

As a child of God, you’ll be spared those coming tribulation days
From Heaven we’ll observe His 2nd Coming, His reigning as King phase
Live in the wonderful anger free presence of Christ; only “Hallelujahs” raise

There's a book by Rick Thomas, Mad: Seeing Your Anger with the Clarity of God's Word.
I got quite a few bonks on the head from this one. For example --
"In order for a person to become angry, he must first elevate himself over the person he is angry with. ... Anger does not come from a humble heart. It comes from a proud elevated heart. ... 'I am better than you are' is Gospel amnesia."

I personally would balance this with sometimes anger can be an alarm which with discernment and prayer decisive action can be taken. For example, if you’ve been overworking you may find yourself becoming angry...and then realise you actually need to step back, take a break and draw close to God to recharge. I think it’s important to pray and seek God when we are angry, not only for forgiveness, but for discernment and wisdom. One place (of many!) I’ve got wrong in my Christian walk, was for years, anytime I felt any anger (often!!) was to automatically press it down and try to “break through the flesh”. We need wisdom too.
