Ephesians 4:26. "Be ye angry, & sin not: let not the Sun go down unpon your wrath". He teaches us how to bridle our anger in such a way that, even though our anger is fierce, yet it does not break out, and that it is without delay quenched before we sleep. And this is so that satan may not take occassion to give us evil counsel through the wicked counsellors and destroy us. If it so happens that you are angry, yet do not sin, that is, bridle your anger and do not wickedly do that which you have wickedly conceived. Let not the night come upon you in your anger that is, make atonement quickly for all matters.

Angry is a passive word. Meaning be ye being angered. Moses is the best example Num. 20 God rebuked him for his unbelief and in ps 106 God was not pleased with that expression. Eph 4 says put away all anger. If we would believe God is truly working all all all thing for good we would not sin. Whatsoever is not of faith is sin! This is my view on this and God is giving me victory through this.

Concerning Christian 's comment on 2 10 14 I had not looked at it that way before That is a good thought To reverence God is to have a wholesome healthy dread of displeasing God with a hatred for evil anger is evil sin is displeasing to God. Encouraged by your thought. Thanks . We should keep ourselves in the love of God To keep ourselves from the wicked one.

I needed to read this scripture this morning, I 'm angry this morning need to read the word feeling better asking God to show me the way to handle this feeling.


Christian's comment on 2014-02-10 06:31:32:

I always thought that this verse means to be angry towards sin and sin not If you hate the sin are you likely to continue in it I also thought that not letting the sun go down upon your wrath meant to not be wavering accepting or yielding toward sin but always having wrath toward it hating sin and not yielding to it Like don t stop having wrath toward sin night and day and that being like a fuel to keep you loving your neighbour and hating the sins that cause them to stumble Does anyone agree with that view or does anyone feel I ve misunderstood the meaning

This is a great verse for giving clear instruction for Biblical Conflict Resolution. As the offended person, you have not sinned by being angry, but how you handle this anger is important. As Christians, we are not to seek revenge as a way to get back at someone who has hurt us, but neither are we to hold a grudge indefinitely or harbor resentment in a passive/aggressive way in order to "punish" by withholding our friendship. By reconciling within a 24 hour timeframe we obey this foundational principal and we avoid the physical ailments that come with harboring resentment for long periods of time. The old addage, "Time heals all wounds" is not true. If someone has offended or hurt you, go to the offender before the sun sets so you do not harbor resentment or ill-will, thereby, causing yourself to sin. If he/she will hear you and be reconciled, then you have put your friendship back on track.

This scripture shows that as humans we will get angry, but how we handle that anger makes a difference of whether we commit a sin. We have to have self-control and not have uncontrolled anger. We should take time to remove ourselves from the situation and take the matter to God in prayer.

ephesians 4:26 is saying to me i can be angry at sins in a person but not at the person,and if i have a wrath with someone, i must confess my sins to that person before i go to sleep, because tomorrow is not promise, jesus may return while i am a sleep! i dont want that to happen.
