You were created in My image and I get angry. In order to experience the fullness of God you must have the capacity for anger. Anger toward sin and evil and its effects on people is a must if you are holy, Mark 3:5
It’s anger under control of My Spirit allowing you to be angry without sinning, Ephesians 4:26. All other anger is from hell and is destructive, and deadly to the body soul and spirit. There is also an evil spirit of anger, that must be directly dealt with and put out! Colossians 3:8. This is the story of many believers:
You don’t know why… your just angry!
It happened a long time ago, maybe when you were a child, your not even sure when, but something happened that cheated you out of a portion of life. Maybe you wanted a dad or a mom and they weren’t there for you? Or you were abused and nothing was ever done? Embarrassed by a teacher? Jilted by a lover? Obviously somewhere, at sometime, you were deeply wounded.
Face it, “It is impossible to avoid offenses, they will come: the world is full of them, but woe unto him , through whom they come!” Luke 17:1. However, when you got saved everything was different, and it seemed to go away, but then suddenly you surprised yourself, and those closest to you, with an outburst of anger, for no apparent reason. As you grew in Me it became more apparent that you have a spirit of anger.
As you begin to move deeper in the things of the Spirit, it appears more often. When anyone does anything that you do not agree with, you over react and there is anger in your voice! This is very common and nothing to panic about, the issue is easily dealt with if you come to the place of agreement and recognize that it exists. It is based in unforgiveness that still exists in your soul. You have not completely forgiven the person or persons of the offense that has been buried, sometimes for a lifetime.
Forgiveness is based in love and love heals and conquers all. Get with a mature believer that you trust, wait before Me and let Me show you who and what you have not forgiven. As I reveal it, break before Me and verbally forgive those who have offended you.
When this process is complete, the evil spirit of anger will leave, because he has no place to attach too. Your free and your ministry will grow rapidly with this roadblock removed! Mark 11:25-26.
