How To Avoid The Seven Woes That Guarantee God's Anger! ( Part 1 )

 

By:  Bill and Teddy Rogers

John 3:36 says “Whoever believes in the Son (Jesus) has
eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son (Jesus) will not see life,
for God’s wrath remains on them.





The above scripture verse says that God’s anger (wrath) does not
apply to those who have accepted God’s Free Gift of Salvation
(Jesus). But, for those who reject His Free Gift (Jesus), God’s
anger (wrath) still applies.





Choosing Jesus leads to eternal life in Heaven. Rejecting Jesus is a
fatal decision that leads to death and the following still applies.




THE SEVEN WOES





In Matthew 23:13-36, Jesus mentioned seven
actions that guarantee God’s anger. His seven statements about the
religious leaders were very strong and unforgettable. They are
commonly called the “seven woes”.




In Mathew 23:13
Jesus says “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you
hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You
yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying
to.”




Woe # 1. Not entering the kingdom of heaven yourself and
making salvation hard for other people.





In Matthew 23:15 Jesus says “Woe to you, teachers of the law
and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a
single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as
much a child of hell as you are.”




Woe # 2. Causing converts to walk away from God and to adopt
a different religion so they can be like you.





In Matthew 23:16-22 Jesus says “Woe to you, blind guides!
You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but
anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’
You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that
makes the gold sacred?





You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but
anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’
You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes
the gift sacred? Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by
it and by everything on it.





And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who
dwells in it. And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s
throne and by the one who sits on it.”




Woe # 3. Trivializing religion and requiring others who
belong to God to follow man-made traditions instead of God’s Word.
