8 But now put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, and filthy communication out of your mouth.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.
26 Provoked, but not to sin, that the light of day not go down because of your exasperation. [Anger is sin and can cause you to lose the measure of the light of God and day that you have laboriously gained. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not let the light go down on your anger. Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom." Because the translators, schooled by Babylon, don't understand that all anger is sin, this verse is seriously mistranslated in most Bibles to read: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger;" which incorrectly implies that your anger is not sin unless you hold onto the anger into the night. Because the original Greek can often be interpreted in several ways, the interpretation chosen is greatly influenced by the translators' beliefs; and if the translators have some incorrect beliefs, those incorrect beliefs will cause them to incorrectly translate many scriptures. Although Paul clearly states in verse 31 below: "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice;" the translators blithely go on, without a clue to the true gospel, including that the Lord can completely purify person to become like Him.]
21 You have heard that it was said to them of old, 'You shall not kill, and whoever kills shall be in danger of the judgment.'
22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother will be subjected to judgment;3 and whoever says to his brother, 'Raca,' [in contempt] shall be in danger of the council; but he who says, 'you fool,' shall be in danger of hell fire. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom."]
20 For the anger of man does not lead to the righteousness of God. [This verse confirms that righteousness is not instantly received by believing in Jesus. Righteousness must be aimed at and pursued. 2 Tim 2:22. Our obedience to what we hear the Lord speak to us leads to righteousness. Rom 6:16. We must seek His righteousness as the highest priority in our life. Mat 6:33. We must patiently wait, by faith, through the Spirit, for the hope of righteousness, Gal 5:5, as the Spirit reproves us for our sins; and with our obedience to the commands we hear, sin is removed from our hearts. When we have crucified our selfish, sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, we become righteous. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom."]
|1 John 3:15|
15 Whoever hates his brother has committed murder [in his heart], and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
24 Make no friendship with an angry man, and with a furious man stay away,
25 Lest you learn his ways, and get a snare to your soul.
|Ecclesiastes 7:9 |
9 Be not hasty in your spirit to be angry for anger rests in the bosom of fools.
