“What is God’s wrath? Well if we look in (Genesis 3:2 NKJV) “And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.” From this warning, she Eve, should have heeded the voice of the Lord, instead she followed the promptings of Satan the serpent, to touch and then eat the fruit and even gave it to her husband Adam to eat, (Genesis 3:4-6 NKJV).
This concluded their free reign in the Garden of Eden and their expulsion from it, to endure God’s wrath of curses upon their lives from that moment onwards, because they had turned asunder from God and His rule and reign in their lives, now to endure hardships they had not known in the garden, for God’s wrath is the punishment for disobedience in our lives too, and as is written in (Genesis 3:17 NKJV) “Cursed is the ground for your sake, in toil you shall eat from it all the days of your life.” This is the distension which causes the separation from God, to do without His help and provision, but to be torn asunder (apart), by tragedy, to become parted and severed into two parts.
We belong to God who created us and is and must be sovereign in our lives, but many times this becomes an impossibility through our disobedience to His Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:1-21), that if we choose against His laws of life, living in a tranquil state, letting Him be sovereign and not our own fleshly desires to govern our ways, then He has no choice to remove Himself from us in all care, and hand us over to the tormentor Satan who will tear us apart from having any meaningful relationship with God, distending us as well from His provisions as in the past before we sinned against Him.
We can conquer this distension and God’s wrath continuing in our lives to destroy and pull apart what God has joined together – marriages and parents with their children, and inherit God’s blessings once again in a common ground basis living united to Jesus who was slain on the cross for all our transgressions and who can reassure His forgiveness and restitution as He had already planned and provided before we sinned with our disobedience and carelessness towards God’s sovereign rule and command to be diligent and upright in our progress in life with His attention always at hand over us when we choose His life over Satan’s who tempts so that we can be put asunder from God, and our families parted as well, through tragedies and set upon to form distended families separated and not united any longer.
We can end this curse of distension, by letting go of the past and bringing our lives into alignment with God’s will and plans for a unified life of Godly based living with His plans and purposes fulfilled, and not in demise of all categories, to enjoy the family he has blessed us with and to be unified once again as He originally intended, that is, before Satan tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God, when they became separated from God. The only mediator between us and God, is His Son Jesus, for He alone could cause our sins to be washed by His blood shed at Calvary (Galatians 3:13), which gives us a legal right to acclaim Jesus as our Saviour and Redeemer to help us at all times to be forgiven for our sins, when we turn to Him in repentance – as this –
”Lord Jesus I am truly sorry for my distension separating me from the love of the Father. I am truly sorry for all my sins of disobedience outstanding, which have caused the distension from God and my own family to have happened. I am truly sorry and repent in dust and ashes for the separation from your will in my life and my family’s separation as the cause of your wrath in my life and theirs Father God. Please count me as worthy of your love and favour through Jesus Christ who has taken away all my sins on this account, and washed us clean from them with His precious blood shed at Calvary, that we might again be united in one accord with you Father God in Jesus’ name, and to be united as one again with our family, Amen! So be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is and God will provide, Lord Jesus come and live in our midst as our Lord and Saviour, Amen!”
