Have you been a victim of or instigator of wrath? Wrath according to Dictionary.com is strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger. The Bible uses the word wroth, which wrath finds its origin. All of our English language derives its origin from interpretation of languages. In my research and in my long following of Emmet Fox I find that the word wroth was used to describe God’s emotion, while God doesn’t have emotion as it is a human response to love and fear and God only knows love.
Wroth means God’s activity and not a word connected with anger, which is derived from fear. We are made in God’s image and likeness and are given free will. It is God’s will that we follow the plan we were given by God, which is embedded in our DNA. When we follow our Ego and move in a direction contrary to God’s will we resist God activity or wroth and anytime we resist God or universal energy there is resistance, therefore pain is involved. When we feel pain we may believe that this is punishment from God and actually it is merely God trying to draw us back into Its plan.
Wrath, according to our current vocabulary, is rage, rage is anger, anger is fear and God is not fear. Fear is the shadow created by our turning from the light or God. God is light. God is life. God is truth. God is love. God is intelligence. God is soul. God is spirit. God is principle. But God is not FEAR!!! It is this concept of God that is behind terrorism. It is this concept of God that has been behind every reprehensible act in our history. We must stop using wrath to dictate our understanding of God and get back to following God, which is found by remembering…
Your Life is PERFECT!!!
