The wrath of God – what or who is that? You decide

If we disobey God we obey Satan – the wrathful evil spirit who then is working in us

Eph 5:6       Let no one deceive you with empty words: for because of these KJV things the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience.

Col 3:6        Because of these things the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience:           KJV

Eph 2:2       You used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin, obeying Satan…the spirit at work in the children of disobedience.  NLT/KJV

Under Satan, we used to have outbursts of wrath giving the wrathful one a foothold

Eph 2:3       Among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh…and were by nature children of wrath (children of the Devil)

Gal 5:19-20 The works of the flesh (our human nature) are…outbursts of wrath

Eph 4:26-27 Don’t sin by letting anger gain control over you…for anger gives a mighty foothold to the Devil (who comes to steal, kill and destroy).       NLT

Anger and wrath are sin and mean we are again the Devil’s children and not God’s

1 John 3:8  Whoever continues to sin belongs to the Devil…                                TEV

1 John 3:10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the Devil. Anyone who does not obey God’s commands and does not love other Christians does not belong to God.                          NLT

The Devil is God’s creation, he fell due to sin and is full of wrath, he is the wrath of God

Rev 12:12  …For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath (or rage), because he knows that he has a short time.

Rev 12:17  And the dragon was wroth (enraged) with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.       KJV

Does Satan’s wrath accomplish God’s will? Certainly not, it is sin which opposes God:

Jam 1:20 The wrath of man (or devil) does not produce the righteousness of God.

As we obey God, in and by His Spirit, we are delivered from Satan, the wrath of God

John 3:36   Those who believe in, have faith in, cling to, rely on, the Son have AMP  eternal life. But whoever disobeys, is unbelieving toward, refuses to trust in, disregards, and is not subject to, the Son will never see life, but instead the wrath of God (Satan) abides on (comes on) that one.
