SparkNotes: The Grapes of Wrath: Chapters 4–6

The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son's iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eats the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.

The sins of others are a foil to set off the lustre of grace the more.

No man shall finally perish, but for his own sins; none, who is willing to accept of Christ's salvation.






Alphabetical: be But die each eats edge everyone for grapes his iniquity Instead man on own set sin sour teeth the who whoever will


A summary of Chapters 4–6 in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath

Wordsworth, however, accounts for the masculine form of the adjective by supposing that the writer wishes to give a stronger force to the word, and to emphasize the terrible nature of the wrath of God.


Forceful, often vindictive anger

Mankind . . . possesses two supreme blessings. First of these is the goddess Demeter, or Earth whichever name you choose to call her by. It was she who gave to man his nourishment of grain. But after her there came the son of Semele, who matched her present by inventing liquid wine as his gift to man. For filled with that good gift, suffering mankind forgets its grief; from it comes sleep; with it oblivion of the troubles of the day. There is no other medicine for misery.

One–fourth of the world’s population will ultimately die. The nearly two billion people that will die will have had no chance to repent, as this happens soon after the Rapture. Therefore, ALL perish to hell–ref Rev 6:8. Hell followed all that died. As a result of the Russian–USA exchange, one–third of trees will be burned up. All green grass worldwide will be burned up, as the radio active fallout follows the wind currents. This includes farm crops. One–third of the waters will become wormwood (or poisoned, or radioactive, or bitter). One–third of the sea will become blood. One–third of the creatures in the sea will die—thus, a shortage of fish. One–third of the ships will be destroyed. Few ever thought this war would happen. From this point on, much of the USA and Russia can be expected to be a radioactive pile of ash. They will no longer be on the world scene. The USA will be as a tree that is reduced to a stump. Few are left alive. The dead bodies will become food for the wild animals and birds. The USA has turned their back on God. The preaching has become watered–down. Nearly every perverse sin imaginable has become acceptable. Thus, God’s judgment will come.

How often do you fast unto the Lord—perhaps for a week each year? Do you ever fast even for a day? Do you tithe? God’s people that understand His Word do. The Bible teaches FEW go to heaven. Did you ever hear a clergy say any deceased person went to hell? Some even teach there is a purgatory. It is unbiblical–Lk 16:22,23; 2 Cor 5:8.
