Few things on my mind and hopefully I can make it clear in asking and commenting at the same time.
anger rests in the bosom of fools Ecclesiastes 7:9
he that is soon angry dealeth foolishly Prov 14:17
a wrathful man stirreth up strife Prov 15:18
an angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression Prov 29:22
make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go. Lest thou learn his ways, and get a "snare to thy soul" Prov 22:24,25
it is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman Prov 21:19
but I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment Matt 5:22
by ye angry and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath Eph 4:26
I first hand can testify to the damages of "anger". So this morning I have been given many scriptures by God as to this subject. He poured in one after the other, putting all the peices of the puzzle together. I had been searching for answers and to some extent I believe I found them. The human body and its emotions is truly puzzling.
Have you ever been around someone that exploded in anger (without good or sensible reason) and lashed out furiously? and you could almost feel their hate for you? Yet they are suppose to love you and you are left dazed and confused by this.
And your just thinking to yourself "what in the world was that and why did they act that way"?
Why did they have to get that mad and put their hands on someone and break everything around them?
Or you live with someone that one minute can be so loving and caring and then BOOM flip the switch and your thinking, ummm what just happened?
I will also choose their delusions and I will bring their fears upon them (Is 66:4)
They do not sleep unless they have done evil. Their sleep is taken away unless the make someone fall (Prov 4:16)
But if he be found he shall restore sevenfold, he shall give all the substance of his house (Prov 6:31)
Anger "rests" in your bosom. (so it sleeps until it is stirred and once stirred =destruction)
Their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall. (they are able to sleep without caring the pain they caused, because unless it "hurts" someone by doing evil to them, they themself will find no rest. So does that mean that because anger is resting (they are not) unless they do evil? So they act out and cause harm, therefore their body can rest? )
Do not let the sun go down on your anger. (which is a great warning, because you think well if I am asleep, I cannot harm anyone. So what happens when we sleep with "anger".? The bible states that when we sleep on anger we have given a foothold to the devil. Wonder whats happening while they sleep?
So is their a "spirit of anger or a spirit of wrath"?
Be angry ( it is ok to get angry, we all do BUT sin not ). So at what point does it become sin? So to let the "spirit of anger" out gives that person rest.?
How many times have you quickly acted out in anger and then shortly regretted what you said or did? But what about those that are not sorry and feel justified and continue to live this way, day after day you never knowing when the next explosion may come. I am not looking for debate, I am asking your thoughts, scripture or feelings on the subject of anger. Is it a spirit? Is it an evil spirit (at some point)? When does anger become unnatural and leave the human level into the (evil) spiritual level?
