Matthew 5:21-22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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."]

 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.

James 1:20

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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."]
