THE FEAR OF THE LORD
Now, these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. I Corinthians 10:6
Some today think because Jesus died for our sins that God has somehow changed, but He is the same God who's wrath still breaks out on sin and rebellion! The blood that Jesus shed satisfied the wrath of God on the believer, not the unbeliever!
The above-referenced scripture is an example for us today in the New Testament that we should not crave evil things. The children of Israel joined up with the women of Moab and began to commit harlotry with them and were invited to sacrifice to their gods, so Israel was joined to Baal and the anger of the Lord was aroused against them and a plague broke out, killing 24,000 people!
We as believers ought to take this example to heart before we consider that God's wrath could even break out upon us who commit willful sin! It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
Now all these things happened to them as examples and they were written for our admonition, (instruction) upon whom the ends of the ages have come. I Corinthians 10:11
