According to Elwin Roach:
-"The English word "wrath" comes from the Greek word "orge" ( pronounced … or-gay ). Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
tells us that "ORGE" means: desire, (as a reaching forth or excitement of the mind), i.e. (by analogy) violent passion....
If we follow the word to its derivatives we find that it is akin to 'airo,' which implies a deliverance from sin, and
is comparable to 'ornis,' which means 'a bird' (as rising in the air). "Orge" is active. "Orge" reaches out and accomplishes
its burning desire. The passion ("orge"/"wrath") we see in the scriptures is usually in the context of heated determination.
"Wrath" in the Biblical sense is not a condition of rage, as the word implies in the English, but is generally associated
with adamant punishment toward those in rebellion; yet it does not end with punishment alone. We see that it ends in deliverance,
especially at the judgment of the Last Death, the Lake of Fire. The passion of Christ, the wrath of the Lamb, is no doubt
grievous to the carnal man, for it means the end of his lustful, self-indulging life. It is similar to a father's wrath when
he punishes his rebellious son. It is not enjoyable to either of the two; yet it is done with understanding and in love, knowing
the pain is but for a season and very necessary for the spirit of rebellion to be broken. This is in all of God's judgments
toward His fallen creation." ( Hell & The Lake Of Fire, Elwin R. Roach )
-It is now plain to see what is meant by the "WRATH" OF GOD. IT IS THE VERY PASSIONATE LOVE OF OUR FATHER! In essence,
this love says, … I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH TO LEAVE YOU IN YOUR CONDITION! I WILL CORRECT YOU BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!
-As was stated earlier, "wrath" is the passionate love of God. It is His stored up desire and passion to see all of His
creation set free. This is to be understood in the same sense of a man’s passionate love for his bride. How would he
react if his bride were to be wooed into the arms of another lover? He would go after his unfaithful bride in order to win
her back again. In essence, he would unleash his "wrath" upon his bride. This "wrath" would not be to destroy her, but rather
to bring her back in union with her true love. The man would pour out his passionate love in an effort to gain back his lover.
He would exhaust all necessary means to draw her into his loving arms. HE WOULD STOP AT NOTHING, UNTIL SHE COULD FINALLY SEE
HIS UNCONDITIONAL AND UNFAILING LOVE! After being a witness to this, the bride would voluntarily return to her one and only
love. HOW COULD SHE RESIST SUCH FORGIVENESS, PASSION, DETERMINATION, AND LOVE?
-There is no doubt that the Bible speaks of the "wrath" of God. The GOOD NEWS is that there is a purpose for the WINEPRESS
OF THE FIERCENESS AND "WRATH" OF ALMIGHTY GOD! It is for the purpose of correction! It is His …
-DETERMINED, PASSIONATE LOVE!-
