God Hates (blank) the most
Complainers, there it is pure and simple, one word says it all. And that is ALL complaints, complaints about anything, complaints said to anybody, even just thinking them in your own mind. He expects you to be mature and to nip that thought in the bud, because he hears those insulting thoughts of yours also and it directly hurts him tremendously. You can make God want to cry, as he is the host of this big party we like to call life. And he feels the burden of responsibility for everything. If you love God, never do it.
All of the circumstances in your life are not haphazard, nothing happens to you by chance. Think of it like you are in a big circular room with 100 doors, on 99 of the doors it says "it is God doing it" and on one door it says "it is just a coincidence". When things happen in your life both big and small you can be assured that 99 times out of 100 it is God directly causing it to happen or through his permissive will allowing it to happen. We always find ourselves however drawn to the door that says "it is just a coincidence", it is like the room is tilted and we always seem to wind up at that door.
Just for a moment entertain the thought that God the Father is in absolute control of everything in your life, from the exact number of hairs on your head (Matthew 10:30) to the fly that landed on your sandwich at lunch. If that were true and the Father was orchestrating each and every detail of your life, how do you think he would feel to hear you complaining about any of the things that happen to you in your life? The very things that God specifically ordained to happen to you? When you complain about anything, even just in your own mind, you are directly giving the Father a slap in the face, it is just that simple. God hears your thoughts like you were speaking them into a bullhorn. There are no secrets.
The reason that the Father has said that far and away his worst complaint with his children is the fact that he suffers from a horrific thing that he calls the "Responsible Hostess Syndrome" or "RHS". "RHS" gives you the worst feeling of being uncomfortable and ill at ease that you could ever possibly imagine. The "Responsible Hostess Syndrome" phenomenon refers to the fact that the hostess of a large party commonly does not enjoy the party that she is throwing because of the fact that she is responsible for the success or the failure of the party and this burden normally makes them not enjoy the party at all. They are responsible for everyone in the rooms enjoyment and happiness, and this means that they are constantly feeling ill at ease and anxious as they are the one who carries the whole burden of that responsibility. Each and everything around you is magnificent but "RHS" makes the poor hostess suffer endlessly over minor and tiny almost insignificant details. This is actually "The Number One Problem between God and Man". Complainers.
The Father deals with this on a much larger scale and it is a critical problem for him. He created everything and therefore feels any complaint about anything is a complaint directly about him. Complaints are taken very personally by the Father. Even when you complain in your own mind it is shared and fully known by the Father. A mature person is aware that it actually hurts God and basically ruins his day when you complain about anything to anybody.
The Father deals with this "Responsible Hostess Syndrome" (RHS) on a much larger scale and it is a critical problem for him. He says that complainers cause him to focus on their complaint and to forget all the millions of success stories that the Father has and suffer great discomfort. His beloved children seem to not be aware that all complaints he takes very very personally, and they make him actually suffer as he feels responsible FOR EVERYTHING. So there is a real problem with the Father "not enjoying the party" because of the burden of responsibility that he always feels. If you add to that burden any complaints, it hits him like a ton of bricks. You can soon see that the hostess (God the Father) could actually not be having such a good time already, and you throw a few complaints to directly make him feel bad and it becomes a very disheartening affair dealing with these children who make him feel bad about this wonderful planet that he has gifted us with. He created everything and therefore feels any complaint about anything is a complaint directly about him.
Know this very clearly, if you love God you will just swallow hard and grab a hold of those types of thoughts the second that you identify one entering your mind. He does not hold it against you if you jump on and quash any complaining thoughts as soon as you identify it. If you allow the thought to remain and bounce around in your mind even though you know that all your thoughts are also shared by him, you are "fostering" (feeding and encouraging) that thought and you will incur the wrath of God because of all your negligence in abusing God.
At this point in your faith life you may think that God just controls the big things that happen to you and you may find yourself going to the "its just a coincidence" door quite a bit but as you mature you may find yourself going to that door less and less. Then one day you will notice dust on the unused door knob and after a while you will see a thick coating of dust as you come to see that the door is never used.
God the Father uses trials and adverse circumstances to refine and purify the sons and daughters of God, they are evidence of his love and inclusion in the Father's family. (see - Stirring the Pot) The refining process normally entails God throwing some temporary problems in your direction as a type of stimulus to help in the process of becoming Holy and the putting on the robes of a saint. Is enduring the refining process worth it? After the process has had its full effect on you, do the before and after comparison. See how the peace of mind, confidence, calmness, serenity and pure joy that you now have compares to your former mental state. The universal conclusion of the saints after they have completed the purification process is that the results gained are well worth any minor friction that they temporarily had to endure.
And now with the release of the New Holy Bible, people who complain will come to experience an interesting phenomenon, you will find that the Father will add on more things in your life for you to complain about, if you show maturity and never complain then you will soon find that you have nothing at all to complain about. Know in your heart that everything that occurs in your life was very carefully planned by the Father and is ultimately in the long run going to work out for your benefit. There is a common problem that is based on the belief that the Father probably does not pay attention to every word that I speak and to every thought that I have, he probably just checks in on me for a few minutes every other week or so. That is a problem that is based on your lack of fully understanding of just exactly where the Father is at all times. You see God the Father is ALWAYS sitting right next to you, always. You may not be able to see him but rest assured that he is surely there. He is already 100% aware of each and everything that is going on in your life right now. He is 100% dedicated to you and only to you.
He does not split up his time in any way, not even a tiny little bit, most people make the mistake of assuming that God must be very busy and that he simply does not have the time to always be there. No that is not the case, the Father is always 100% committed to you and to you alone. Most people would be more than a little embarrassed to find out that God sticks to them like white on rice, 24/7, each and every second of each and every day. (Jeremiah 23:23-24) That being said you might then start to understand just how redundant and unnecessary it is to think that you have to tell the Father anything about your situation or needs, believe me he already knows. Stick to telling him all the things he doesn't know like just how thankful you are for the blessings and provisions that you already have.
Jesus said the most important commandment was "You shall love God the Father with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind" (Matthew 22:36-38). This is the premise that all prayer and worship must be based upon. The only proper contents of a prayer are these two things, praising the Father and thanking the Father. If you stick to these guidelines you now have truly learned the proper way to pray. Do you feel that you really don't have anything to thank God about right now? How about for your next heartbeat, believe me he is the one giving it to you, that is a good place to start. Everyone is looking for the big secret about God and I will be glad to reveal it to you right now. The more that you get down on your knees and offer thanks and praise to the Father, the more he will put into your life that you will be thankful for. It then becomes a self fulfilling prophesy with no limit and no end. There it is, the mystery has been solved, case closed, your long persistence in the pursuit of a better understanding of God has been rewarded and you now have discovered the long forgotten source of the mother lode. Well done.
The wrath of God is most commonly caused by the buildup of people complaining to God. You have people who depend on you, how does it make you feel in the pit of your stomach when they make you think you are not doing a very good job? The Father invented terms like, "He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty" (Revelation 19:15) to describe how he feels when people complain about anything at anytime. He just wants to pack it in, call it a day. If you knew how much you really hurt him every time you complain you would never do it again. You do not properly comprehend the magnitude of the Father's work schedule on your behalf, there are flocks of birds that contain 6 billion birds in them and yet he knows and maintains the levels of food in the stomachs of every one of them. (Job 38:41) How much more value are you to him than birds? What do you think is the value that God places on the opinions of the very salt of creation, the people he loves the most, the ones that he depends on to make his very existence palatable? Every time you complain the Father withdraws a bit from you until his anger dissipates and during that period you are in a world of danger from all the things Gods presence is protecting you from, the hedge he builds around your life is temporarily removed.
Your complaint will be hurting and insulting the one force in the universe that really does love you and that always desires the very best for you.
And that is a very bad thing.
