The Wrath Of God

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Drivers_lag, May 25, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm looking for a wrath of God type quote - you know, the ones full of smiting and burning and such.

    Similar to the almost infamous Pulp Fiction one - but not that one.

    Any ideas?
  2. “And in the evening when they were about to start the drinking, Odin had swords brought into the hall and they were so bright that light shone from them, and no other light was used while they sat drinking.”

  3. Job 4.9 By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.

    That'll teach them for getting up His nose.

  4. And God saw what they had done and he was sore displeased. Yea and he summoned Gabriel unto him and spake thus, "Fuck those cunts" and zappethed them with a mighty thunderbolt, to show his displeasure unto the sinners. And Gabriel was much impressed with his wrath and went forth to spread the word that the Lord is not to be fucked about with.

  5. Well at least the LORD knows how to give his lads - Elisha in this case - proper backup:

    Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.

  7. Did you know that THEM are actually in the Bible? In genesis, there is a direct description of THEM chucking a flash-bang outside a house, blinding the Taliban who attacked their LUP and were trying to behave like Afghans do, then calling in a nuclear air-strike; they even wanted to kip down in the local town square instead of going into some smelly peasants' house...

    "Genesis 19: 1 The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”

    “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”

    3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. 4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

    6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”

    9 “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

    10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

    12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

    14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry[a] his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

    15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

    16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”

    18 But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please! 19 Your[c] servant has found favor in your[d] eyes, and you[e] have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die. 20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.”

    21 He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar.[f])

    23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

    27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace."

    Seems a pretty obvious interpretation to me. Can't think why it doesn't feature in the usual Regimental histories, but THEM always were pretty secretive blokes.

  8. You're not the Rev. Ian Paisley are you?
    You seem exceedingly familiar with hells fire and brimstone.
  9. Is he into buggery as well? Pretty much standard operating procedure for those with a direct line to sky pixies. Allegedly.
  10. Romans 3:23

    For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

    That's pretty much god saying we're all cunts....each and every one of us.

    Matthew 25:30
    And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

    I think this one was about the scoff house in heaven or some shit.

    Samuel 15:3
    Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”

    I think Samuel may have had anger management issues, and was a bit of an animal botherer.
  11. Now that would have been a Yewtree arrest to savour.
  12. He is a snippy bugger.

  13. Going to Chapel tomorrow in Wales then ?
  14. "And the Lord said......"There will be a Great Gnashing of Teeth"...............But Mr Paisley....some of us have no teeth!
  15. The LORD is a jealous God, filled with vengeance and wrath. He takes revenge on all who oppose him and furiously destroys his enemies! The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet. At his command the oceans and rivers dry up, the lush pastures of Bashan and Carmel fade, and the green forests of Lebanon wilt. In his presence the mountains quake, and the hills melt away; the earth trembles, and its people are destroyed. Who can stand before his fierce anger? Who can survive his burning fury? His rage blazes forth like fire, and the mountains crumble to dust in his presence. The LORD is good. When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge. And he knows everyone who trusts in him. But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood. He pursues his foes into the darkness of night.
