God Wants Peace

God does not like to show wrath, but that does not mean He will not show it. He will show wrath, but what He really wants is for people to make peace with Him,
“Fury is not in Me.
Who would set briers and thorns
Against Me in battle?
I would go through them,
I would burn them together.
Or let him take hold of My strength,
That he may make peace with Me;
And he shall make peace with Me.”
(Isaiah 27:4-5)
The proof of this passage is the entire Bible message. Yes, you see the wrath of God in the Bible, but what you see more is God pleading through prophets for people to repent, and what you see is God giving man another chance to do better.
The gift of Jesus Christ on the cross, taking the wrath of God for us, shows more than anything that God does not want to pour out His wrath upon humanity.
