Anger and Wrath of God
This is a study about the “Anger and Wrath of God” as to where two Greek words are used together to express the intentions of God towards individuals on a single basis, a group of individuals and towards a system based upon a method of false worship.
The verses in question are:
Revelation 14:10, 16:19 and 19:15 and Romans 2:8.
The Greek words are:
1. For the word: Anger. orgé: impulse, wrath

Phonetic Spelling: (or-gay')
Short Definition: anger, wrath, passion
Definition: anger, wrath, passion; punishment, vengeance.
Greek #3709 orgḗ (from orgáō, "to teem, swelling up to constitutionally oppose") – properly, settled anger (opposition), i.e. rising up from an ongoing (fixed) opposition.
/ orgḗ ("settled anger") proceeds from an internal disposition which steadfastly opposes someone or something based on extended personal exposure, i.e. solidifying what the beholder considers wrong (unjust, evil).
["Orgē comes from the verb oragō meaning, 'to teem, to swell'; and thus implies that it is not a sudden outburst, but rather (referring to God's) fixed, controlled, passionate feeling against sin . . . a settled indignation (so Hendriksen)" ]
2. For the word: Wrath.
Word: θυμός, οῦ, ὁ
Part of Speech: Noun, Masculine

Revelation 14:  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
καὶ αὐτὸς πίεται ἐκ τοῦ οἴνου τοῦ θυμοῦ τοῦ Θεοῦ, τοῦ κεκερασμένου ἀκράτου ἐν τῷ ποτηρίῳ τῆς ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ, καὶ βασανισθήσεται ἐν πυρὶ καὶ θείῳ ἐνώπιον τῶν ἁγίων ἀγγέλων, καὶ ἐνώπιον τοῦ ἀρνίου·
Revelation 16:  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ πόλις ἡ μεγάλη εἰς τρία μέρη, καὶ αἱ πόλεις τῶν ἐθνῶν ἔπεσον· καὶ Βαβυλὼν ἡ μεγάλη ἐμνήσθη ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ, δοῦναι αὐτῇ τὸ ποτήριον τοῦ οἴνου τοῦ θυμοῦ τῆς ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ.
Revelation 19:  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
καὶ ἐκ τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ ἐκπορεύεται ῥομφαία ὀξεῖα, ἵνα ἐν αὐτῇ πατάσσῃ τὰ ἔθνη· καὶ αὐτὸς ποιμανεῖ αὐτοὺς ἐν ῥάβδῳ σιδηρᾷ· καὶ αὐτὸς πατεῖ τὴν ληνὸν τοῦ οἴνου τοῦ θυμοῦ καὶ τῆς ὀργῆς τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ παντοκράτορος.
Romans 2:  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
τοῖς δὲ ἐξ ἐριθείας καὶ ἀπειθοῦσιν μὲν τῇ ἀληθείᾳ πειθομένοις δὲ τῇ ἀδικίᾳ θυμός καὶ ὀργὴ
1. The first group of people into which the “anger and wrath of God” is expressed toward individuals who worship the “beast” and accept his directions for their life. This “beast” will be the Arab/Islamic Antichrist who will be the Caliph or Leader of the Ten Arab Confederation of Nations/Empire that will be established in the Middle East. He will be the Leader of the Ten Arab/Islamic Caliphate, spoken of in the Book of Daniel and Revelation. They all will be finally cast into the Lake of Fire for the duration of eternity.
Revelation 14:  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:  And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
2. The second group of people into which the “anger and wrath of God” is expressed toward Religious System located in Rome, Italy; which is Roman Catholicism associated with the Vatican City.
Revelation 16:  And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.  And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.  And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.  And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
The entire text of the state of Babylon is found in Revelation 17:1-18; 18:1-24; 19:1-3.
The following describe the total destruction of Rome, Italy and the Vatican City. It will be burned down with Volcanic Fire from the Alban Hills Volcanic Complex; then the region will subside downward into the earth as the subduction zone under the region pulls the land mass downward and will finally be flooded with the Tiber River and the inflow of water from the Mediterranean Sea.

Revelation 18:  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.  And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,  And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
The third group of people into which the “anger
and wrath of God” is expressed toward people of the Islamic belief who will be destroyed in the Middle East who have gathered to battle against Israel. The Arab/Islamic Leader of the Islamic Caliphate and the Islamic Religious Leader will both be cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. They will not being going to Hades, but will be going directly into the Eternal Punishment of the Lake of Fire...
 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat
upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and
make war.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were
many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The
Word of God.  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword,
that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of
iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty
God.  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name
written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.  And
I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice,
saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather
yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;  That
ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh
of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them,
and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.  And
I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered
together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his
army.  And the beast was taken, and with him the false
prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them
that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his
image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with
brimstone.  And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
4. The fourth group of people into which the "anger and wrath of God" is directed are the Spiritually Lost souls who will go to Hades and finally be cast into the Lake of Fire.
