God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Numbers 23AA:19. For I, the LORD, do not change; Malachi 3:6 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8-9. God uses "righteous anger" and not the kind of anger men act on,. Lastly, God is no respecter of person. And the LORD was "angry: with Solomon, because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods. But he did not keep what the LORD commanded. "1 Kings 11:9-10. The law in OT was for the lawless. In NT we are under Grace. This Grace does not give us believers the license to sin and make our God angry! The law in the hand of Christ no longer will condemn the believer. The law no longer can threatens the believer with vindictive wrath. When a believer is In Christ, there is no threatening of eternal, vindictive wrath and punishment. In Christ, believers have no fear of judgment. “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love,” (1 Jn. 4:18). Believers no longer should not fear the threats and punitive punishments of the law because they are under grace.
Romans 8:1. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. The word condemnation has 3 meanings. It can mean condemnation and it can mean guilty sentence and it can mean no punishment. When Jesus paid for our sin nature, he not only took the sin, he also took all of Gods wrath toward sin. That's Good News. Jesus paid the price so we could go free. John 8;36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed KJV. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. NLT
