Anger the Destroyer

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus pointed out that anger leads to murder. Probably the number one thing that is spiritually killing the children in Bible-believing homes and churches is the anger of one or both of the parents. Anger also destroys the oneness between a husband and wife. Many parents think their wrath is justified by their children’s disobedience and rebellion. It is more likely that the rebellion is caused and escalated by the anger. Your anger isn’t caused by what is outside you; it is caused by what is happening inside you. Anger usually comes from either pride or tension from unresolved guilt.

God describes anger as:
  • A city without walls
  • An unbearable load
  • A flood
  • A poisonous snake
  • A fire-breathing dragon.
Here are seven key thoughts to stop
Anger the Destroyer.

How to Help a Man With His Anger

A wife asked, “What can I do to help my husband with his anger?”
An older son asked, “What do I do when my father gets angry? How am I supposed to respond?”

  1. Understand that there are probably things you don’t understand.
  2. Deal properly with your own anger:
    • Acknowledge that it is sin.
    • Control your anger God’s way.
  3. Deflect anger:
    • Answer back gently.
    • Give a gift to the angry person.
  4. Do not deliver an angry person from the consequences of his anger.
  5. Use emotional word pictures.
  6. Seek and pray for the skill of patience.
  7. Use spiritual weapons to defeat his carnal weapons:
    • We’re born knowing how to use carnal weapons.
    • Carnal weapons are deceitful.
    • Spiritual weapons are more powerful!

What Impatience Does

The servant who owed a tremendous debt said to his Lord, “Have patience with me and I will pay thee all.” But when forgiven he did not want to express that same patience to a fellow servant. Instead, with anger he cast him into prison. So all of us want God to be patient with us, but we don’t always want to give that same patience to others. Impatience and anger are like sister sins, with one leading quickly to the other. If you develop patience, you are far more likely to not sin by getting angry. The biggest problem parents have in raising children is not the children. It is the parents’ own impatience & anger. Impatience produces anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness. It demonstrates a lack of true love. Impatience cuts you off from the blessings of patience, while increasing the number of your trials. This message also gives seven steps to develop patience.

Freedom From the Spirit of Anger

The most destructive force in family life today is the anger of one or both parents. But rebellion in youth seldom goes away until parents deal, not just with anger, but with their spirit of anger. MANY PEOPLE WITH A SPIRIT OF ANGER DO NOT REALIZE THEY HAVE IT. James and John had such an intense spirit of anger that they wanted to call down fire from heaven and destroy an entire village full of people. Yet they were deceived so that they didn't know their spirits were emitting such a spirit of anger. A spirit of anger is also very contagious. Proverbs 22:24-25 explains how fathers or preachers who are blind to their own angry spirits develop followers with the same spirit. Here is an explanation of why ALL of man's anger is wrong.

Understanding Scorn & Mockery

Mockery, like anger, is a powerful emotional force. Also like anger, it is a negative force. In the Bible it was almost always used by a proud person who was trying to stop or hinder the work of God or the truth of God. Mockery of truth was an attempt to get people to lay aside their minds and follow their emotions. Jesus faced much mockery while here on earth. Before His crucifixion, “Herod with his men of war...mocked Him.” The crown of thorns and gorgeous robe were mockery of Jesus being a king. Before Jesus raised a girl from the dead, “they laughed Him to scorn.” But Jesus “put them all out”! God’s punishment for their wrongful use of scorn was to let them miss the greatest opportunity of their lives! God also “scorneth the scorners.” It is questionable whether Christians should ever use mockery. Psalm 1:1 says, “Blessed is the man that...sitteth not in the seat of the scornful.”

The High Cost of Anger

Proverbs 19:19 is a very significant verse for any angry person: "A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again." People who live with an angry person are continually having to "deliver him." In fact, they wind up doing it again and again and again.

Anger costs:
  1. The Time of others to deal with YOUR problem.
  2. Your own Testimony destroyed by the foolish things and the mean things that you do.
  3. The loss of your greatest earthly Treasure--the angry person destroys his relationships with the people he loves.

How to Humble Yourself

The sin that seemed to bring God’s judgment in the most severe fashion in the Bible was the sin of pride. On the other hand, the one character quality that is the foundation for all other character qualities is humility. Every Christian should actively seek for ways to humble himself so that God does not have to humble him. Those whom God humbled often ended up humiliated. To humble yourself:
  1. Pass praise to God and others.
  2. Serve others instead of trying to impress them.
  3. Confess and ask forgiveness for your sins and your faults.
  4. Bless those that curse you.
  5. Welcome correction, criticism and put downs.
  6. Remember your own mortality.
  7. Make humility a lifelong quest.

What Pride Does

The three big sins of men are anger, lust, and pride. But perhaps the most difficult of those to conquer is pride. PRIDE HIDES. It is deceitful and elusive. It is also a “root sin” that produces other sins. ANY TIME you see a man who has a problem with anger you see a man who has a problem with pride. ANY TIME you see a man who has a problem with lust you see a man conquered by pride. Many men have seen their homes destroyed because they were too proud to admit they need counsel and seek help. Because pride steals glory that is due to God alone, there are few sins that bring the level of destruction that pride brings. When the plagues on Egypt, including the death of his firstborn, did not stop the pride of Pharoah, God destroyed his army in the Red Sea. Wise is the man who wants to understand, What Pride Does and to seek the blessings that come from humility.

Fear Series

The Fear Series Includes: What Fear Does and How to Conquer Fear and Develop Courage.

What Fear Does:
A truth that the Bible makes very clear is that we do not have to fear man. In fact, “The fear of man bringeth a snare.” Fear causes us to focus on negative things rather than positive things - on what we can't do for God instead of on what we can do. Fear also causes us to exaggerate the negative. The children of Israel said they were like grasshoppers in comparison to the Canaanites. No man is a grasshopper compared to any other man, but their fear caused the Israelites to spend forty years wandering in the wilderness when they could have conquered the land of Canaan. Worse yet, fear causes us to act irrationally. When fearful leaders do not confront sin, then the hearts of followers get hardened by their sin. The one healthy fear is the fear of the Lord.

How to Conquer Fear and Develop Courage:

Since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden there has never been an absence of fear for man. In fact, God does not mean for us to be totally without fear. We either have the right kind of fear or the wrong kind of ear. The wrong kind of fear is a powerful, negative, potentially destructive force. The right kind of fear is a powerful, positive, energizing, motivating force. The key to conquering destructive fear (in all its varied forms) is to replace the fear of man with the fear of God. The fear of God: gives wisdom and knowledge; prolongs days; delivers from evil; gives confidence; protects from danger; and is a treasure and a choice!

How to Help Rebellious Adopted or Stepchildren

Children want to give their hearts to their parents. But there is a frightening exception to that truth. Children who are not living with biological parents may feel a sense of “rootlessness” and confusion that hinders parents from being able to deal with their rebellion. Moses, Samuel, Esther, Daniel, Jesus, and Joseph were separated from their parents and raised by someone other than their biological parents.
The key thing for adoptive, step parents and their children to do is to properly ask the question, “Why did God let this happen in my life?” Once this question is asked and then answered from God’s point of view, negative situations can be viewed in a positive light.
This message may also be a help to pastors’ & missionaries’ children, as well as people who have experienced divorce, disease, death, etc.

This message answers the question, “Why God Lets Things Happen?”
