In The Bible Did Jesus Ever Get Angry?

Yes in the bible Jesus did get angry but He did not sin. The word of God said be angry but sin not and this is what Jesus did on several different occasions.

Jesus became angry for righteousness sake, it was not that He disliked anyone because He is the expressed image of God and God is love but He became angry because of the hardness of people heart.

He especially became angry with the Pharisees and Scribes because they had the law but did not abide by it. They turned it into the doctrines of men also, they were blind to see Him as the Messiah. He called them on several occasions vipers and hypocrites. In Matthew 23: 13-15 Jesus said, but woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men, for you neither go in yourselves nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widow’s houses and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore, you will receive the greater condemnation. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

From these few verses, you can sense His angry because they had make the word of God of non effect because of their tradition. He said that they shut up the kingdom of heaven against men well, Jesus came from heaven and to speak against it made Him angry.

He had a zeal for God and His temple. On one occasion found in Matthew 21:12-13 Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, it is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer but you have made it a den of thieves. This is the only time that I can recall when Jesus put physical action to His angry.

His nature is of peace and love but we can go so far wrong that He will become angry with us but He will not forever remove His loving-kindness from us although we might think He has because of His chastisement.

I remember years ago when I was disobedient. I would say that I was going to do something and if I got into trouble then the Lord would bail me out. My problem was, I was not following God, I wanted Him to follow me. Well, He allowed me to go through a very difficult time and when He brought me through it He told me this in Isaiah 54:8 with a little wrath I hid my face from you for a moment but with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you says the Lord your Redeemer.

His moment was about six months, that is how long it took me to learn my lesson. Hebrews 12:6 says now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present but painful, nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. This is what the Lord done for me and I thank Him for it.

Jesus is not quick tempered, He does not get angry easily but He can get angry. If He does, it will always be for our good because He loves us and that will never change.

Vintage Golf

What goes best with wine? Ask Californians and they’re likely to say, “golf.”

Just about anywhere you travel here, you’ll find two things in common… golf and wine, as California’s sun-kissed climate has made “The Golden State” the ideal place to experience grapes and “birdies.” For every golf course in the state, there’s a commercial winery – about 800 of each – and all are worth tasting.

North of San Francisco lie the famous wine growing regions of Sonoma and Napa Counties. Rodney Strong, Jordan, Ferrari-Carano, Mondavi, Cakebread and Heitz are among the names of viticultural baronies found along Sonoma and Napa county roads. Their wineries, aging cellars and tasting rooms are impressive grand chateaus, aerie lookouts and surrealistic structures that that overlook a landscape scribed with rows of vineyards and lined with fairways.

Start your California golf and wine sojourn by visiting the California Welcome Center in Santa Rosa. The connection between California wine and golf is immediately evident near the Center at nearby Matanzas Creek Winery with its impressive displays of lavendar and the 36-hole Mountain Shadows Golf Course near Rohnert Park. One of the oldest wineries in California, Gundlach-Bundschu, is a 3-wood drive from Sonoma Golf Club, once declared “near perfect” by golf legend Bobby Jones. And for a true California twist, sip California sparkling wine at the Korbel Champagne Cellars, then tee off through towering redwood trees at Northwood, an executive course designed by Alistair Mackenzie of Augusta National fame.

Four major “wine courses,” are found in the Napa Valley. Chardonnay Golf Club, across from the newly completed Kirkland Ranch winery, has the highest rated 36 holes in the region. Vineyards actually encroach upon Chardonnay’s greens. Or is it the other way around? Further up the Valley in the Atlas Peak wine-growing district is Napa’s preeminent golf resort, Silverado, with 36 holes that host the Senior PGA Transamerica Tournament, each October. Chimney Rock, off the Silverado Trail, is the only Napa Valley golf course actually on the property of a winery. If golf, wine and fine dining are appealing, drive over to the new Yountville Golf Club, then dine in one of Yountville’s exceptional restaurants… (cont.)

An Introduction To The New HTC Flyer Tablet

When looking to buy a mobile device, there are many factors that play a role in the deciding whether or not a person will make the final purchase. One of the most popular mobile devices to hit the market is tablets. Tablets are a great alternative to a laptop computer and are much faster and can accomplish more than a smart phone. One of the newest and welcomed tablets is the HTC Flyer. It is slightly smaller than the typical tablet computer but it is as fast if not faster than the best tablets currently being sold. With the power of an Android Operating System and having the HTC Sense UI, this tablet could become a huge success.

One of the most noticeable differences about this particular tablet is that the screen size is only 7 inches. This is significantly smaller than the common tablets but the resolution is much better as far as viewing videos and playing games. The resolution of the screen is 1024 by 600 pixels which is much higher than most tablets. Many laptops do not even have resolution equivalent to this tablet and that is what makes this a great device to travel with. The screen also has HTC Scribe technology which allows users to take notes and draw directly on the screen.

Another great feature that makes the HTC Flyer worth purchasing is the cameras that are built into the body of the device. The rear camera is 5MP and is great for taking photos of just about anything. Usually, a 1MP camera will take photos that can be printed out without any noticeable distortion of the image. A 5MP camera is great for printing out larger copies of a picture or for taking pictures of objects that are farther away. The front facing camera is only 1.3MP is meant for video chat or taking photos of the user. This is a good feature because users do not have to stand in front of a mirror to take their own picture to upload to a social networking site.

One of the most important features for a tablet is its processor and memory. The HTC Flyer has a fairly good processor. The processor of the tablet is a 1.5GHz processor that comes with 1GB of RAM. This is enough so that users can play their games without any problems and videos will play smoothly without very little buffering time. The 32GB of built in storage memory will be sufficient for most users but there is an option of expanding by using the microSD slot.

Overall, the HTC Flyer is a very portable tablet and is much more functional than a cell phone but the screen size may be an issue among people that are accustomed to the larger screens. With the speed that the processor provides and the resolution of the screen, users can enjoy full length movies without worrying about not enjoying it because of the screen. The battery life of the tablet is adequate enough to view a movie without the battery needing charged which is always a good thing for devices that are meant for travel.
