Let Jesus Embrace You -- He Is Not Angry

"Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him." (Psalm 2: 12)

Sounds like a threat, like force.

Yet because Jesus Christ has died on the Cross, God will never be angry again with us:

"9For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee." (Isaiah 54: 9)


"To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation." (2 Corinthians 5: 19)

At the Cross, the following joined in a kiss:

"Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other." (Psalm 85: 10)

The confirmation of this truth John reports in his gospel. Regarding mercy(grace) and truth:

"17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." (John 1: 17)

Regarding righteousness and peace:

"21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthian 5: 21)


"14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;" (Ephesians 2: 14)" (Ephesians 2: 14)

Because we are now His beloved, we can now rejoice and sing:

"2Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine." (Songs 1: 2)

You no longer have to seek Jesus, but rather let Jesus kiss you, for God is no longer angry at you.
