<061> Thesis: That wrath "arrived" was all a part of the "telic" approach that God has taken from the beginning. Introduction: The behavior of the Jews, as the major adversaries of God in union with His main adversary, was a "filling up" of their sins in harmony with God's Plan. He allows things to run their course as He oversees the entire process, using all things to develop the overall Plan. The murder of the Lord Jesus was a classic example of "filling up" the intentional sinfulness in opposition to God, but it was also the seed of the divine victory against "Sin". God uses all things together in infinite wisdom to bring about the intended end. This evening we are going to look into Paul's last characterization of the behavior of the Jews as he turns it toward the consequence that has been imposed. He calls it the "arrival of the wrath upon them".
