God’s Wrath Is Satan

Comparing 2Sam 24:1 to 1 Chron 21:1, written 500 years after 2 Sam 24:1, we find that “THE ANGER OF THE LORD” is actually the anger of Satan. This fits with the cross understanding. The doctrine of Redemptive withdrawal shows us that the wrath of God poured out on Jesus at Calvary was actually God withdrawing His protection and allowing the wrath of Satan (Rev 12:12) to be poured out on Jesus at the cross. Jesus takes the wrath of Satan that otherwise would have fallen on and destroyed us.

So, God’s only wrath is to withdraw and allow Satan and his wrathful anger to attack. We absorb these attacks in faith, as did Jesus; we die the death of self and are raised to walk in newness of life and receive a transformed mind, the mind of Christ.

God has no anger or wrath of His own. Anger and wrath are sins. Col 3:8-9. God does however use the wrath and anger of Satan for a good and redemptive purpose, the salvation and transformation of humanity. Rom 12:1-2.
