What God does when he’s jealous and angry

Deuteronomy 32:21-26

They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God;
They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols.
But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation;
I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.

For a fire is kindled in My anger,
And shall burn to the lowest hell;
It shall consume the earth with her increase,
And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

‘I will heap disasters on them;
I will spend My arrows on them.

They shall be wasted with hunger,
Devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction;
I will also send against them the teeth of beasts,
With the poison of serpents of the dust.

The sword shall destroy outside;
There shall be terror within
For the young man and virgin,
The nursing child with the man of gray hairs.

I would have said, “I will dash them in pieces,
I will make the memory of them to cease from among men,”


This applies to the young man, virgins, nursing children and old men.

    Idol worship was strictly forbidden and the punishments of such actions were well-known to the Israelites.

  • Heard of God

    All of this is written in very familiar Hebraic poetry. It was pretty much fulfilled in the destruction of the temple in AD.70. Remember no Gentile was under this covenant that is being defined in this book. Therefore the curses were reserved for the those who broke the covenant. The new covenant was ushered in with Christ and made the old covenant obsolete (Hebrews 8:13). The only thing that remained after the blood of the new covenant was shed was the judgement of that covenant(Deuteronomy 28, Malachi 3:1ff). The judgement that remains for us can be found in Matthew 25 and has nothing to do with scorpion-horses and an anti-christ.

    Don’t be swept away by the liberal sch

  • Heard of God

    (continued from comment above)… olars of today that can be found in almost every church.


    With love,

    These verses really sound like some bad def jam poetry. The rantings of a crazy person.

    If one shows u hell to draw u to worship him it would seem as if someone is saying if u don’t do what i want, u will die. That’s terrorist logic.

    So pure the lord above that he drinks,like beef(not vegetarian), kills and get mad. Tell me what is so pure about him that he deserves our worship.

    Don’t bring up any stuff from some book called the bible.Tell me what has changed our lives. We humans or the one above. Its u who make decisions. Not him.Everyday u make decisions not him. U’re parents are your creator and u should pay more respect to them than that god u cannot see. For all i know he’s just in a book.

    Don’t believe just because u see,u hear ,u read. Find out the truth about life. And most of us are bound to these traditional religions with monotheist view.

    The power of us humans are really marvelous. Never have i seen in all my life a being who control my action. I never seem anyone resurrected before either. If the resurrection of Jesus is proven wrong, then christianity is no more and there is no proof of his resurrection except in the bible that people can input whatever.

    The true path has been laid but we humans keep to the traditions and worship the all powerful god of the universe that don’t even know whether earth was flat or round.

      If you were to study and know the bible you would see the many falicies in your argument. The most obvious being that they actually did know that the earth was round in the bible. And that there has been so many scientific discoveries because of the Bible. Not only this but if you actually knew the Gospel . God doesnt command nor want EVERYONE to worship him. Just his sheep. If you do not believe then you are not of his sheep.
