What is Holy anger?

This anger is exhibited by believers when demonic forces twist things that are right to be wrong. It is also exhibited when demonic host take things that are wrong and try to make them visibly right. This anger also may occur when we know deep within by the Holy Ghost that there is deception or deceptive acts being devised by the enemy of God. This type of anger occurs when the Word of God is being twisted for an agenda that is not of God's Sovereign Will. It may occur when God places a burden on your heart when an environment is not aligned to His ways or Word.

A worldly unholy anger reflects on self emotions and feelings of what the person that is expressing is desiring to benefit for self. It is exhibited against the things of God. It is against the children of God.

The works of witches, enchanters, sorcerers, necromancers, wizards, and the likes; who have the knowledge to know how to provoke children of God through demonic methods, designs, and systems... will promote wiles, tricks, and schemes that appear to be right to those that are ignorant of their practice. They use these tactics to make it look as though a child of the Most High God is wrong so that they can use it as a method of oppressing, depressing, controlling and manipulating. The child of God will know that they are right, however the system exist in will ignorantly accept the suggestion of the wicked without investigation. Most of the time there may be layers of individuals bewitched in each system that cannot see the devices of the devil at work in the system they are governing.

These demonic host will try to weary you down by placing stumbling blocks, continuous traps, and twisted rights and wrongs..in order to cause you become entangled in a physical, soul (emotional), and spiritual battle that is not one handled by carnal means.

The children of God must put on the armor of God to wrestle with spiritual darkness and their host and pin these principalities down. The weapons of warfare are not carnal.

Here are some scriptures whereby servants of God were faced with Holy anger including Jesus Christ:


King David expressed an Holy anger at those that were wickedly in pursuit of him because of his love for God. He stated the character of those that spoke wickedly against God as well as taking His name in vain. King David brought his petition to God over the wickedness for God to respond to it.

Psalm 139:19-22 King James Version (KJV)

"19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies."


Nehemiah had Holy anger against the usury that was being inflicted on his brothers and sisters to the point of rebuking the nobles and the rulers in order to turn the wrong into right in the eyes of God and according to His Sovereign Will which is active in the laws of God for usury.

Nehemiah 5 King James Version (KJV)

1 And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.
For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.
Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.
There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.
Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.
And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.
Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.
And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.
Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?


Jesus became angered at the spirit of the Pharisees of whom did not want good to be done are visible on the Sabbath day. They were more concerned about themselves, their positions in society, and Jesus being visible to the population as being capable, so they promoted wrong more so than the righteous acts of Jesus Christ. They would have preferred that the man's hand remain withered and inflicted than to be healed because of their tradition while neglecting the fact that Jesus was God in the flesh who gave the laws of the Sabbath day.

Mark 3:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
Jesus went into the temple and found merchants at the entrance making money in an environment that was to be inclusive to worship and prayers unto the Most High God. They were selling items and doves for sacrifice that was out of the original "right" order of God. They were a "den of thieves" profiting from those whose minds were intertwined and engaged into believing that if the purchased what was sold from the merchants could be sacrificed unto the Lord for atonement of their sin. The original law was for them to bring a tenth of what they had worked and plowed for to bless God, not to purchase it from the gates of the temple. There were many wrongs appearing to be right that brought an Holy anger upon on Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that was not of the original Kingdom Mandate of God.

Matthew 21:12-13 King James Version (KJV)

12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Rules of Holy Anger for Every Born Again Believer
The Holy Bible admonishes every born again believer in Christ Jesus that we may get this type of Holy anger, but we should not sin. The Holy Bible also tells us not to sin in our anger. It is alright to voice your concern as Nehemiah did, but not to use provoking words that may escalate the issue at hand.  As a servant of God, especially if we have gifts granted by God, we must be cautious of what we speak or think when we are angry as we may provoke God to act. In 2 Kings 2:23-24, Elisha the prophet called upon the Lord to deal with the youth of whom mocked and taunted him, God sent a bear to devour them. This is why we must be quick to dissolve Holy Anger. Be mindful of what the Holy Bible says about anger. 
Ephesians 4:26

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.

Do not be angry with your sisters and brothers in Jesus Christ. We are one Body in Jesus Christ and must remain in unity in order for us to walk in the fullness of His glory and inherit His Kingdom. Paul said those there were not of Jesus Christ Kingdom would be judged by God. It is also written in Revelations 11:18 that those that have rejected God's covenant will be angry because of the judgments that will be rendered upon them and the rewards that will be granted to the saints. 

1 Samuel 24:10

Behold, this day thine eyes have seen how that the Lord had delivered thee to day into mine hand in the cave: and some bade me kill thee: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the Lord's anointed.

How do we handle the twisted wrongs and rights? We are to seek the Lord God Almighty for His wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and revelation. We must prepare and polish ourselves  to be craftier than the serpent. The only we to do this... is to tune into His Glory and His Word prayerfully.

Revelation 12:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

God will not leave us nor forsake us. Your trust and faith in Him will give you great testimonies of what He has done and will do for you. 

1 Corinthians 2:9 King James Version (KJV)

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
In all things trust Him and wait upon the Lord to turn things around into a victorious state. He has the absolute power over all of the kingdom of darkness. He will direct your paths and cast a light before you so that you will not stumble. It is He that will cause you to mount upon wings like and eagle to sour and never grow faint.

Proverbs 3:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Isaiah 40:31 King James Version (KJV)

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Brothers and sisters do not grow weary in your well doing. Keep your smile. Keep your laughter. Keep the joy of the Lord in your soul. In Jesus Mighty Name!
