Dear reader, I have been walking with God for the past thirty years and I have come to know those things that annoy him. In this article I have selected three things that annoy God most.
The nature of God’s temper.
Before I mention the things that annoy God most, I have to tell you that our Father in Heaven is a very patient person. You will have to make a lot of provocation to annoy God. For example, you can pour a cup of hot coffee on God’s face and he will just smile at you (Psalm 103:8). You can also hurl all sorts of insults at God and he may never be annoyed with you. However, there are three things that provoke the wrath of God most.
Number one: Rebellion.
Rebellion is the number one act that provokes God’s anger most. For hundreds of years God’s heart had been at peace until Satan rebelled against him in Heaven. The Devil’s rebellion provoked a lot of God’s anger that our Father made an everlasting judgement. God stopped Satan from serving in Heaven. Secondly God decided that Satan’s final destiny would be Hell. Except if they repent, all those who rebel against God are destined for Hell.
God pleaded with Moses to go to Egypt but Moses was afraid. Moses was almost becoming rebellious and the Lord’s anger burned against Moses (Exodus 4:14).
Our Father in Heaven instructed Jonah son of Amittai to go and preach in the great city of Nineveh. Jonah became rebellious and he provoked a lot of God’s anger. Jonah tasted the bitter pill of God’s anger. Rebellion against God is so bad that he can violently shake a cruise ship of 5,000 passengers because of just one rebellious person on that ship (Jonah 1:4-5).
Number two: An unrepentant heart.
A person who is not repentant, especially after many warnings, provokes a lot of God’s anger. This is one of the reasons many people will find themselves in Hell.
Number three: A person who deliberately sins after seeing the light of God.
When a person sees the light of God through the salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that person goes ahead to deliberately sin against God; then God’s anger will be greatly provoked against that person. If that person does not repent, God’s anger will send that person to the hottest part of Hell.
