Lesson: Session Two Parts 2A & 2B – 1-23-2023 – Study This Part

Session Two – Part 2A - Review of “Session One – Parts 1A to 1C:”

*Biblical References to Anger: 

-Anger is the second most frequently mentioned emotion in Scripture; mentioned more than 455 times in the Old Testament with 375 of those referring to God’s anger; God used to get angry with us when we disobey Him but no more (Romans 5:9; 2 Corinthians 5:21; John 12:32; Isaiah 40:2). But because of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection, God's love, mercy, and grace, covers all our sins, and short comings!! I thank God for His love, mercy, and grace for me!!!

The thing is, God NEVER declared war on us, His human creation, He declared war on sin!!! Why would God destroy us – the ones He love, and sent Jesus to die for, restoring us to Himself??

That makes NO sense at all!! We were NEVER God’s target for His wrath, sin was!! This is what Andrew Wommack said, in his “Living Commentary” note, on Isaiah 40:2:

“The Lord declared war on our sin. The last act of that war was when He placed all of His wrath and anger on Jesus and made Him the offering for our sins. Jesus paid double what any of us deserved as punishment. That was the end of the war. God is not angry at us anymore. He’s not even in a bad mood. He is not imputing our sins to us (2 Corinthians 5:19). That’s what the angels were praising God for at the birth of Jesus. They weren’t singing about peace among mankind but peace between God and mankind. See my note at Luke 2:14. The statement about Jerusalem receiving double for all her sin must be prophetic, since Jerusalem hadn’t gone into captivity at that time. I don’t believe we could ever pay double for all our sins, even throughout all eternity. I believe this is speaking prophetically that Jesus suffered twice what our sins deserved. This is a strong assurance that the payment was greater than the offense, and therefore, sin does not separate us from God anymore (Isaiah 59:1-2).”

-Anger is a God-given emotion and is one of the most powerful and controlling of all the emotions. When anger is not properly dealt with, it is one of the most dangerous.

-God gave us anger as an emotion, but He also gave us instructions on how to handle, express, or control it. Some scriptures on Anger: 

  • Proverbs 15:1 – “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger (this shows angry is already in you).”

  • Proverbs 16:32 – “He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.”

  • Proverbs 19:19 – “Hot-tempered people must pay the penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again.” (If we rescue impatient friends from their problems once, we will probably rescue them again and again). Read rest from bible.

  • Matthew 5:43-48 – 44 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For He gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what rewards is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. 47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”    

  • Romans 12:19 – “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

  • Ephesians 4:26 – “Be angry, and do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”

  • James 1:19,20 – “So then, my beloved brethren, let every man swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

*Anger is not the problem. The problem is how we handle or express our anger. An unhealthy expression of anger is Sin.

*In the above Scriptures, it tells us how to handle and not to handle anger so we will not sin when we get angry.

*An appropriate or productive use of anger is when Jesus became angry at the money changers and the Pharisees. An inappropriate or unproductive use of anger was in the Garden of G when Peter became angry at the soldiers when they came to arrest Jesus and cut one of their ears off; he sinned by using violence when he was angry.

Session Two – Part 2B – “Four Classes of Anger” & “What Makes Us Angry:”

During this Session, we are going to define anger and its causes:

Four Classes of Anger Defined:

Webster’s definition of Anger: 1) a feeling of extreme displeasure, hostility, indignation or exasperation toward someone or something; rage, wrath. 2) Trouble, pain, and affliction.

1. Resentment – ill will and suppressed anger generated by a sense of grievance (complaint – you feel the person wronged you in some way).

2. Anger – a feeling of extreme displeasure, hostility, indignation or exasperation toward someone or something; rage, 2) Trouble, pain, and affliction (as stated above).

3. Rage – closely related to the sense of intense, uncontained, explosive Rage appears to be more justified by circumstances. For example, when one feels indignation at seeing the mistreatment of someone or something dear and worthy.

4. Fury – more destructive

5. Wrath – fervid anger that seeks vengeance or punishment on a large

What Makes Us Angry? – Part 2B

*Hurt (usually from the past) – childhood experiences – emotional, physical, sexual abuse, adolescence experiences (this is when satan really begin to play with your mind by feeding you lies about yourself and others), also, hurts can come from adult experiences such as job, marriage, and relationships.

*Frustration (usually in the present) – examples:

   -Something does not go your way

   -You can’t do something you want to do when you want to do it

   -Can’t watch what you want on TV

   -You want to take a shower but there is no water

   -You want to be alone, but people will not leave you alone

*Fear or Anxiety – we feel threatened or anxious

   - Fear – you are threatened physically or emotionally. This can also be, you are afraid you will be made to look like a fool.

- Anxiety – you anticipate a problem as if it had already happened. Anxiety is a disturbed state of mind produced by real or imaginary fears. According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, anxiety is, “an uncomfortable feeling of nervousness or worry about something that is happening or might happen in the future.” And, “something that causes a feeling of fear and worry.”

Mayo Clinic gives this definition of a panic attack, “A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.”

I was curious to know what causes anxiety attacks. Therefore, I search for the answer, and according to Mayo Clinic’s website, one reason people experience panic attacks is “Stress buildup” which is, “A big event or a buildup of smaller stressful life situations may trigger excessive anxiety — for example, a death in the family, work stress or ongoing worry about finances.” Click here for more information on “Panic attacks and panic disorders,” from the Mayo Clinic.

How to Overcome Anxiety?

Anxiety is overcome by trusting in God (Read - Psalms 37:1-5 KJV); (Pray - Philippians 4:6 KJV); (KNOW God Cares for YOU - 1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV).
