This is Just A Minute Where do you…

This is Just-A-Minute. Where do you suppose this Biblical statement comes from? “Our God is a consuming fire”. Ten out of nine folks you meet on the street would say the Old Testament, since that is where God is a God of wrath. But the fact is the OT God and NT God is the same God and this statement comes from the book of Hebrews in the NT. I truly believe that we preachers have done so effective a job concentrating on the love of God that the average Joe fails to realize that God is still angry with sin and has promised to punish eternally those who reject His Son, Jesus Christ. If God somehow broke His promise, He would be guilty of lying and God cannot lie. So take no comfort in the delusion that God is no longer angry with sin. Judgment may be delayed, but judgment is certain and will visit us suddenly. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
