Exegesis of Light · James

When angry…

It is often said, or at least intimated, that anger-in whatever form…for whatever reason or cause- must be wrong and unacceptable. Is this entirely true?

Is there cause for a righteous man to be stirred to angst? Is anger not justifiable if provoked by  the audacity, impudence and wickedness of iniquity. Is it not possible to be deemed as right when one is angry about the injustice dealt out to many…when one is stirred by the onslaughts of darkness upon the terrains of light? Should angst then not be considered a corollary to the expression of righteousness’s hatred for iniquity? 

Should we then banish anger entirely?
How should we approach this? Selah.
Let us  find here wise instruction to heed…

James 1:19-20 — So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

He tells us to rule our anger and remember that anger by itself does not fulfill the righteousness of God! It may stir us up and propel us in the cause of right, but only by the singular power of His Love and Grace shall we see the agenda of righteousness fulfilled by the power of His might, in our generation today.

Rule Your anger and remember that anger by itself does not fulfill the righteousness of God! It may stir us up and propel us in the cause of right, but only by the singular power of His Love and Grace shall we see the agenda of righteousness fulfilled by the power of His might, in our generation today.

Say to the righteous man in Christ: For the cause of the kingdom and Lordship of Christ “Be angry, but don’t let the sun set on your anger”. Say to the child of God who has awakened to his nature and position as the new creation in Christ, “be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger”. Remember, your anger, even if arguably justified, unchecked and by itself “does not fulfill the righteousness of God”. Selah

Let the child of God pause, meditate on these words and be filled with light ministered by the Holy Spirit.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
