Anger Expose

Anger Expose
Anger can lead to murder
Genesis 4:3-8
New International Version (NIV)
In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to Yĕhovah. And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Yĕhovah looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.
Then Yĕhovah said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”
Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.”[a] While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
Anger leads to evil actions

Psalm 37:8
New International Version (NIV)
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
    do not fret—it leads only to evil.
Showing anger is foolish
Proverbs 12:16
New International Version (NIV)
16 Fools show their annoyance at once,
    but the prudent overlook an insult.
Anger can be turned away
Proverbs 15:1
New International Version (NIV)
15 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
    but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Being quick tempered is foolish
Ecclesiastes 7:9
New International Version (NIV)
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,
    for anger resides in the lap of fools.
Yehovah becomes angry when we are controlled by our anger
Amos 1:11
New International Version (NIV)
11 This is what the Yĕhovah says:
“For three sins of Edom,
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because he pursued his brother with a sword
    and slaughtered the women of the land,
because his anger raged continually
    and his fury flamed unchecked,
Anger is like murdering someone
Matthew 5:21-22
New International Version (NIV)
21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[b][c] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’[d] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
Jesus was angry because of sin
John 2:13-17
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Clears the Temple Courts
13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”[a]
Anger can give Satan a place in your life.
Ephesians 4:26-27
New International Version (NIV)
26 “In your anger do not sin”[a]: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
Christians or followers of Jesus should get rid of anger
Colossians 3:8
New International Version (NIV)
But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
Leaders should not be quick tempered
Titus 1:7
New International Version (NIV)
Since an overseer manages The Divine One's( Jesus) household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.
Be slow to become angry.
James 1:19
New International Version (NIV)
Listening and Doing
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
