Righteous anger

God is truly working in my life! There is so much spiritual warfare because of it. Satan does not want this and all my weaknesses are flying up all around me. I am struggling but God is in control. I just need to continue to trust in that and lean on that and be directed by His word. 
Lately though, the world around seems so bleak to me. I am reading up on War World II history and see how sad war can make people show their natural evil side. It is sickening what those Japanese soldiers did to those POWs. I even recently heard of a rule at the local school that when kids miss a certain amount of school by skipping or even being pulled out for some family thing there is a fee the parents have to pay. If those parents dont pay that fee, they go to jail. Now wait a minute! Where is the responsibility for the kids? I mean these are older kids who know what they are doing is wrong and the parents get blamed. Ok? mmm... Like I have stated before in previous blogs, I believe the time is coming when life is not going to be the same. How will I respond? Would I respond in hatred and bitterness like how the POWs were treated? Or would I respond like God and Jesus did when He was here on earth with righteous indignation solely because the will of God was violated and disobeyed? I found this website and looked up the verses of when God and Jesus got mad and then found a verse in the Bible to tell the direct disobedience it was. 
*Exodus 4:1-14
                God became angry at Moses because he was allowing fear to make him not trust God
                God showed him the miraculous things right there but Moses still was afraid

1 John 4:17-18
17Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
*Exodus 22:21-24
                God will get angry if one afflicts the fatherless and the widow
Exodus 22:19-21  19When you reap your harvest in your field and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. 20 When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over them again. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow. 21 When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not strip it afterward. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow.
Deut 26:12-13 12 “When you have finished paying all the tithe of your produce in the third year, which is the year of tithing, giving it to the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your towns and be filled, 13 then you shall say before the Lord your God, ‘I have removed the sacred portion out of my house, and moreover, I have given it to the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all your commandment that you have commanded me. I have not transgressed any of your commandments, nor have I forgotten them.
Is 1:17 17     learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause.
James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
*Mark 3:1-6
Jesus was angry at the Pharisees because they were waiting to see if Jesus would heal the man on the Sabbath.
Deut 10:12-22 12 “And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to keep the commandments and statutes of the Lord, which I am commanding you today for your good? 14 Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it. 15 Yet the Lord set his heart in love on your fathers and chose their offspring after them, you above all peoples, as you are this day. 16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn. 17 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. 18 He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. 19 Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt. 20 You shall fear the Lord your God. You shall serve him and hold fast to him, and by his name you shall swear. 21 He is your praise. He is your God, who has done for you these great and terrifying things that your eyes have seen. 22 Your fathers went down to Egypt seventy persons, and now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars of heaven.
Ps 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Pro 11:20 Those of crooked heart are an abomination to the Lord, but those of blameless ways are his delight.
Pro 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy.
Pro 16:5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.
*John 2:13-22
                Jesus walks into the temple and people was treating it like a marketplace not a place of holiness. (for their own personal gain) He gets angry make a whip and throws over the tables and money.
Ezekiel 48:12 This is the law of the temple: the whole territory on the top of the mountain all around shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the temple.
1 Cor 3:17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple. (This is our bodies not the physical temple)
