Where Christianity is ...

Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Anger Management Bible Study.  This study provides Bible tips and techniques which help you deal with Anger Management from increasing stress in today's world. 





Anger management Bible tips and techniques are something that has become increasingly effective for those who have trouble with anger management. For many, anger can create emotions that overwhelm our soul and cause many negative changes in our lives. This study will help you to deal with your anger and find out what the Bible says about anger and the danger of anger to your soul.

We'd like to begin by saying that this study is not only for those of you who would like to learn Anger management tips and Anger Management techniques on how to overcome your own anger, but is also for those of you who would like to learn how to cope with people that get angry with you.

Now, put all your cares away and make sure you won't be interrupted for a while, because you'll want to give your undivided attention to this very important matter that we're about to discuss. Make sure you're comfortable and open your mind and heart cuz what you're about to learn may just save your life, and others.

Let's start off with the first reaction that you might have if you've been told that you need to control your anger ... MORE ANGER

 Anger is a difficult issue to address without sounding accusatory. Be assured right from the start that we're not here to judge but rather to help. 

Proverbs 27:6
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.


Proverbs 27:9
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.


Proverbs 28:23
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.


What we must do first is seek the origin of anger. Most do try and reason things out afterward, but the conclusion they seek is justification rather than TRUTH. They actually manipulate their own soul and believe that there has to be some reason, or some person, OTHER THAN THEMSELVES who is the cause for our anger.

In TRUTH … It is and always will be US that allowed this plague of the mind and heart to enter. The simple reason we get angry is that we feel someone or something wronged US. Therefore, it is a SELFISH reaction.

Let's prove this point … If a person at a restaurant called you a foul word after you accidentally bumped into them, one of the FIRST things that comes to your mind, is who else heard or saw that. If you are in a chat room and someone disagrees with you openly, one of your first reactions is what are the people thinking. WHY is that? Simple ... It is pride.

We can actually trace the blame of ANGER back to a time, when an angel named satan, who out of selfish pride and jealousy toward God, CON-vinced Eve to disobey God, by promising her this and that and PRIDE was created. She then passed the deceit on to Adam, and as a result we all inherited what is called “ORIGINAL SIN.”

 So, in all TRUTH, the thing that we can trace the blame for our anger to … Is SELFISH PRIDE. Now we’ve identified the source of the anger … So what? Soooooooo, we have found out that we’re not to blame, and others aren’t to blame either … It is NOT our fault that PRIDE exists. BUT … We did CHOOSE to get angry and when we choose to continue to entertain the PRIDE … That’s when we become responsible for it, this may be difficult to digest, especially when you are knee deep in anger … But, it is sin.

In TRUTH, unless resolved, it continues to grow within and is a foundation for even more sin. HOWEVER ... Knowing what the source of the sin is, you can more effectively deal with it. Your anger isn't going anywhere if you don't deal with it properly, and the best way to do that is to learn about it and it’s origin.

An important thing to note at this point is that even though the devil uses anger as yet another method of encaging our soul … There is what we will call HOLY ANGER. How dare this be said? Cuz Jesus got angry.  

John 2:13-16
And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the Temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the Temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's House an house of merchandise.

 Cool … So we get to use this as a reason by which to allow anger to reign within our minds and hearts? Not a chance. The following words should be echoing through your mind and heart if you will HEAR the Holy Spirit … VENGEANCE IS MINE, SAITH THE LORD.

Deuteronomy 32:35
To me belongeth vengeance and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.


Psalms 94:1
O Lord God
, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.


Proverbs 20:22
Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and He shall save thee.


Romans 12:19
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.


Hebrews 10:30
For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people.


Proverbs 24:29
Say not,
I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.

Now, there are some out there that are just itching to show me scripture that they interpret as saying that Christians have the right to use anger against another soul … So let me just address that now. There MAY be times when God, who uses us as vessels, will reveal His anger through HIS vessel as to reach another soul but that isn’t what we are typing about, now is it? We are looking into UNCONTROLLED anger which has its roots in selfish pride. It is easy to distinguish the difference. One seeks to glorify YOU and the other seeks to glorify GOD.

 Now that we have that understood, let’s talk about remedy. You have probably heard many different theories about anger management. For example “Get in touch with those feelings” ... “Express your anger verbally and in a controlled environment” ... “Release your anger through exercise” ... Get a prescription for whatever it is that everybody's taking nowadays, but watch out for the bazillion side effects that you might get, while you're trying to treat one symptom ... The list goes on.

Notice that each suggested remedy requires that you accept the anger as commonplace and natural. We are not taught by God to do so but rather to RESIST it. We're going to deal with all those theories, with one little scripture that the Apostle Peter wrote:

1 Peter 5:8-9
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom (you should) RESIST steadfast in the Faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

What does that mean? It means ... 


... Because the devil walks around like a lion on the prowl, looking for souls to devour. You should RESIST him with strong Faith, and know that the rest of your fellow Christians in the world are potential prey of his as well.

What's that got to do with anger and why we should resist it?

Remember that earlier, we traced the blame of anger to pride which was introduced by the devil ... Now isn't anger a perfect weapon for the devil to use if he knows it becomes sin if you accept it and allow it to grow?  

The TRUTH is that God is the only judge of a person's guilt or innocence, but ask yourself, when you're angry, don’t you just FEEL like something doesn't feel right? Almost like you are inside of a plastic bag. Do you feel close to and in harmony with the Lord when you're angry?   

Make no mistake, nobody is trying to condemn you here ... Anger is a tough thing to conquer if you don't understand it, and believe me, the devil takes advantage of the fact that most don't know how to manage it ... Because they don't know that he's the one serving it up! It's a trick ... Just like all the rest of his tricks ... And it's all part of the battle of spiritual warfare that each of us face every day of our lives. It's the devil, trying to win your soul away from God.

You're not going to believe how much the Bible talks about anger, and how to deal with it, but I'm going to show you scripture today that will change your attitude from "Anger is a normal emotion that everyone feels," to "Anger is a temptation of the devil," and that TRUTH will set you free of the anger that you've been accepting as a NORMAL reaction.

 Anger, like any other habit, is something that you have to devise a strategic plan to eliminate. It's not something that you planted there to begin with. It's not something that you want to keep. It's just sin, conjured up by the devil, that God doesn't want you to entertain ... Period.

Let’s talk about some of the reactions that are related to anger … Some of the other weeds in the Pride family.

Jealousy … Greed … Revenge … Scorn … Wrath … Rage … Hatred 

Ugly aren't they? These psycho babbling professionals who claim that you have to take the bull by the horns and tackle that anger head on ... Don't believe it. If you’ve ever been to a non-Christian based counseling program of any kind, you’ll be misguided into thinking that these reactions are “normal” and that you must “get in touch” with those feelings. Likewise when people lose a loved one, they’re encouraged to “get in touch” with their grief. By the way, that phrase “get in touch” means “allow and accept” ...

My friend, the Lord, your Physician, never said THAT! Quite the opposite is what the Word of God says. We'll take a look at the TRUTH in scripture in just a minute, but first, let's open our mind to something. When you think of anger, you think of it being a BOLD and STRONG emotion. If you're a person who is inclined to submit to anger, you DO have the STRENGTH to fight it.

But consider this ... Do you have to FIGHT it? Doesn't fighting it suggest that it's some kind of addiction ... And isn't addiction a condition that people retain because they lack the STRENGTH to say no to something? Keep this in mind ... Anger is not the kind of addiction that requires withdrawal. It IS a habit, however, and all you need to do, is replace anger with a different reaction whenever it rears it's ugly head.

The new reaction that you want to practice in the place of anger, is controlling your thoughts. Controlling your thoughts is a command in the Bible. We are taught to RENEW our Mind.

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

You can check out the Renew Your Mind study to learn more. Our Mind controls our spirit. (You can check out the Trinity study to learn more about this.) This Spiritual procedure is happening with or without your knowledge of or belief in it. If you are not controlling your thoughts, your thoughts are controlling you and your spirit is on an emotional rollercoaster.

Proverbs 25:28
He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Think about this question ... Is the Lord's anger too slow for you? You may grow impatient waiting for the Lord to recompense your offender(s), but there are also other things to consider. Have you ever been an offender? Has anyone ever grown angry with you? As a Christian, aren't we supposed to hope for every soul to turn to the Lord and be saved, not punished? Don't we want God's anger to be slow when we're the ones who may be the recipient?

Here's yet another consideration ... If we're made in God's image, shouldn't we strive to be like Him?

Psalms 103:8
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

Slow down just a little ... Don't miss that 'plenteous in mercy' part. If you practice mercy (forgiveness) the way Jesus taught, you'll find that anger will lose all of it's power. The adversary hates that one. The Apostle Paul is an advocate of turning your anger into forgiveness:

Ephesians 4:31-32
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

The Bible warns us that if you're enthusiastic about the Lord punishing your offender ... Things may just backfire!

Proverbs 24:17-18
Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease Him, and he turn away His wrath from him.

Have you ever been doing something, and a thought pops into your head about something that happened some time ago? Then you think about it for a little while and it makes you angry. And you think about it some more, and you find other reasons why it makes you angry. And the more you think about it, the angrier you get! Pretty soon, you’re thinking about things that happened years ago that are done and over with that you’re still angry about, and getting even angrier!

Jealousy, covetousness, pride ... These are just a few of the reasons why we get angry, but it's so important to search for the source of these emotions. Friend, these can only come from one thing ... They are certainly not godly fruits, so you can only conclude that they come from the world ... Which belongs to the adversary.

Sometimes it is not people we get angry at ... But PRIDE is still the root. If you don't have as much money as you'd like, if you wish you looked different, if you desire more fame or recognition of some kind ... These are all things that can initiate anger in us. Sincerely search your heart and decide if the reason you're pursuing any of these things to glorify God ... Or YOU. It's a good bet that IF they would glorify God, He would grant them to you. So perhaps THINKING differently would help. 

David wrote about Anger of his Psalms. I'll give it to you in layman's terms: Forgive us God, because we are very angry. Our soul is angry at those who don't have to work as hard as us, and those who are confident. 

Psalms 123:3-4
Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

There's a great lesson here:


We must change our concept on how we believe we as Christians are to be treated as to be able to change the anger habit from within. We MUST remember that those we encounter are caught up in the same trap of the mind set by our COMMON enemy. Don't let the devil get you with the boomerang effect of hatred. If someone is angry with you, that doesn't mean you have to be angry back. These are a few things that Jesus taught us about hate:

Matthew 5:38-47
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?


Luke 6:22-23
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

Even when Jesus was being crucified, He forgave ...

Luke 6:22-23
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots

God is so cool. Never forget that God protects and awards the underdog if they're humble. 

Proverbs 25:21-22
If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.

We all want God to stick up for us when we're hated. If you refrain from hate, and trust in your Father to take care of things that cause that emotion in you, He will laugh at them, and He will fill your heart with laughter too:

Psalms 37:12-13
The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The LORD shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day is coming.


Job 8:20-22
Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will He help the evil doers: Till He fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.


Matthew 10:22
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

 So why wouldn't God treat us accordingly if we hate others? Answer: He will.

Remember earlier when we said that anger could be detrimental to the final destination of your soul? Take a look:

Matthew 5:21-24
Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is
ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca (fool, worthless, good-for-nothing), shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.


Proverbs 22:24-25
Make no friendship with an
angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.


Galatians 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft,
hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, DRUNKENESS, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.

 The emphasis above on drunkenness is for a reason. Some people get downright angry when they get drunk. Wine is supposed to make the heart merry, but for those who can't control their thoughts and/or consumption it can have adverse effects, and the adversary would just love to deceive you when you're in a physical state that may allow him to win your soul. If you find that drinking does anything other than make your heart merry, be smart and lay off of it, for your own good, for the good of your soul, and for the good of others.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is RAGING: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Let's talk about something very important ... Something that people don't take seriously enough. What happens when you get angry with God? You can't hide from Him:

Exodus 20:5-6
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.


Deuteronomy 7:9-10
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations; And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: He will not be slack to him that hateth Him, He will repay him to his face.


Isaiah 37:28-29
But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me. Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.


Romans 1:29-32
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Whew! Sounds pretty serious doesn't it? Now, you may be thinking that you can get mad at God without hating Him, but think about this very very carefully ... Don't do it. Who would want to be out of God's good Graces for even one instant? Don't take that chance. Besides, He's the good guy. The devil has CON-vinced you that you should be angry with God.

Here's an interesting thing to ponder on ... Do you find that when you're angry with God, you find it much easier to be mad at other people as well? What about when you're mad at a person, do you find it much easier to get mad at God? 

The next time you're walking around with a chip on your shoulder, look again ... It's not a chip, it's an imp.

Some things never change. God has always been against hatred:

Leviticus 19:17-18
Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD.

Another very big advocate of not hating your brother, was the Apostle John ... He stresses the importance of this repeatedly:

1 John 2:9-11
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

1 John 3:15
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

1 John 4:20-21
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from Him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

If you have hatred in your heart for someone, and you lie about it, you will be found out, and not only by the person you harbor hatred for, but by the entire congregation!

Proverbs 10:18
He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.


Proverbs 26:24-26
He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.



Before the Great Tribulation of the End Times, anger and hatred will be very prevalent:

Matthew 24:9-10
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

We're seeing signs of the End Times unfold before our eyes, so be alert. Don't get lured into the devil's lair. Remember 

... The devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour ...

If you'll recall, at the beginning of this study, it was mentioned that you'll be surprised about how much the Bible talks about anger. Let see some scripture that gives both TRUTH and advice about ... 


Psalms 37:8
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.


Proverbs 14:17
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices (ideas) is hated.


Proverbs 14:29
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.


Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.


Proverbs 15:18
A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.


Proverbs 16:32
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.


Proverbs 19:11
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.


Proverbs 22:8
He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.


Proverbs 27:3
A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.


Proverbs 29:22
An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.


Ecclesiastes 7:9
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.


Colossians 3:8
But now ye also put off (give up) all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.


Colossians 3:21
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

How about a little summary of all those? 

Anger causes foolishness.
Where there is anger, there's bound to be trouble, and sin.
To control your anger is wise.
Anger can cause hate and discouragement.
Anger is a heavy burden.

Have you been called to be a shepherd? If you feel the Spirit moving you to serve the Lord and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, anger has no place in your life. You have to be able to guide the lost sheep firmly, but with an even temper.

Titus 1:7-9
For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.


What is ... SCORN?

The dictionary describes it as vigorous contempt or an emotion involving anger and disgust. You can think of it as that feeling you may have had before that makes you want to grit your teeth and growl at someone.

There's an old saying that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. This isn't a funny thing, people. Women who use those kind of sayings as excuses to be angry women, are on the wrong path, and it's just more opportunity for the devil to lead them away from direction they should be heading ... Which is humility. Not only does this go for women, but anyone who is prone to a scornful attitude should read this:

Proverbs 3:33-34
The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but He blesseth the habitation of the just. Surely He scorneth the scorners: but He giveth grace unto the lowly.

It seems to be that scorn is something that causes people to be stubborn, and they won't listen to correction:

Proverbs 9:8
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.


Proverbs 13:1
A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.


Proverbs 15:12
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.

Once you reach a state of scorn, it takes punishment before a person comes to reason:

Proverbs 21:11
When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.

While you are scornful, you will find things difficult to understand:

Proverbs 14:6
A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

When you're scornful, you're not hurting anyone but yourself.

Proverbs 9:12
If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

Here's more wisdom from Solomon: Liars despise justice, and the wicked like to speak sinfully. Justice is prepared for scorners, and whippings for fools.

Proverbs 19:28-29
An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity. Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools. 

Get rid of the scorner and arguments will end ... Trouble and shame will stop:

Proverbs 22:10
Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.

When the Book of Psalms was compiled, this was thought to be important enough to be the very first verse:

Psalms 1:1
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.


The word for violent anger is:


You've gotta know that if anger is something that the Lord doesn't like, wrath is definitely a no-no.

Psalms 11:5
The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.


Psalms 37:8
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.


Proverbs 11:23
The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.


Proverbs 12:16 
A fool's wrath is presently (clearly) known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

Control the tone of voice you use. Once you start to speak sharply, anger increases.

Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

Once again, you're in control ... You can either start trouble with anger, or stop it by controlling yourself.

Proverbs 15:18
A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.


Proverbs 19:19
A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.

More confirmation that pride is often the source of anger:

Proverbs 21:24
Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.

Apply this next one to your modern day life ... A city could be the place you work, or your home:

Proverbs 29:8
Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.


Proverbs 30:33
Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.

Here's some good advice from Paul: Your Father may find a prayer offered with wrath, hardly credible.

1 Timothy 2:8
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.


James 1:19-20
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.


What about ... RAGE?

Proverbs 14:16
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.

You've probably seen it many times before. People who are in a rage are not bashful about it. They are certain (prideful) that they have a right to be angry to the point of rage. Nothing and nobody can dissuade them. When you're not afraid of what the Lord will do because of your state of mind ... My friend, you're getting dangerously close to either doing something you will regret, or the Lord will intervene ... And I promise, you don't want either of those things to happen.


The place where the adversary wants to take you with anger, is all the way to:


As of lately, we've seen entirely too much violence in the world. We've seen terrorism that is occurring almost everywhere on the globe. Remember the murders of 32 innocent people at Virginia Tech, by a gunman who killed himself afterward. The media as per usual, sensationalized this awful tragedy, and too many people will contemplate copying what this person did, while his actions were being orchestrated by the devil. Friends, there is no fame in anger and violence. If this individual didn't sincerely repent in his heart before he killed himself ... Well, you read about the sentence that the Lord gave to us in advance if we follow that path. In case you don't know, this disturbed person, in his pre-video taped messages that he mailed between murders, referred to our Lord Jesus Christ, as though he was comparing himself. The package that was mailed, however, had a return address with a name that suggested that he had Muslim beliefs ... Which are mostly opposite of Christian. You can plainly see that anger can cause confusion, irrational thoughts and fatal violence, and can blind you from the TRUTH. It appeared that this person was offended by a number of things that Jesus taught us not to be affected by. This person had an evil spirit conducting his life through vengeance, anger, hatred, scorn, rage and violence. Don't fall into the same trap. It undoubtedly started with something small, and it grew and grew and grew. 

Proverbs 29:10
The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.

What does that mean? It means that angry violent people hate the people who are good, but people who are just, yearn to be like the righteous.

Now that you've learned that the original source of anger is the adversary, it may prompt you to grow angry at the devil. The Bible also teaches us that it's not our place to accuse or hold anger, even for the devil. Even the Archangel Michael didn't dare speak badly about him, but asked the Lord to take care of it:

Jude 1:9
Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

VERY important thing to remember about anger:



Because anger is one of the devil’s seeds, and when it’s planted in your mind and you go to sleep, it thrives in the darkness of sleep. That seed will nestle itself into your subconscious mind and grow into a monstrous weed, without your even knowing it. 

Ephesians 4:26-27
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place (don't give way or give room) to the devil.

Eliminate your anger by bringing it into the light of the TRUTH that you know from the Bible.

My friend, we've reviewed a lot of scripture, on just this one little topic of anger, but here's one to kind of sum them all up:

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

In other words, don’t ever get tired of being righteous, because you will be rewarded accordingly. As you can plainly see, any retribution for things that we blame others for, belongs to God.

My friend, do you recall in any of the many scriptures you've just witnessed, anything that remotely sounds like "get in touch with those feelings of anger?" Now, just relax, because you’ve learned that if you don’t address those feelings, they’ll eat you up inside and if you don’t “express” them, it could be detrimental to your mental health. Not true. The Bible doesn't teach us to dredge up bad thoughts ... But rather ... 


by teaching yourself the TRUTH.

1 Peter 3:8-9
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.


1 Samuel 16:23
And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

Music can make evil spirits leave. They don't hang around where there is anything holy or joyous, so kick on some good spiritual music whenever you feel anger try and show its ugly head ...
