It is foolish to think of God as an old man who is incapable of exacting vengeance or executing His will. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God.
Desolation – Destruction Falls
When your fear cometh like sudden desolation, and your destruction shall come like a whirlwind: when affliction and anguish shall come upon you,
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer: they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me,
Because they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord. Proverbs 1:27 (1599 Geneva Bible)
My secret is God, my might and strength, my Father who lives.
