God vs Jesus

If God is the same yesterday, today and forever then how can the God of the Old Testament have a different nature than the God of the New Testament? 

Jesus proved during his time here on earth that he was deity.  The Bible is clear that there is only one God so if Jesus is God then He was the same God that seemed to deal so harshly with the people in the Old Testament.  But was God really harsh with those people or was God actually kind, merciful and forgiving? 

Yes, God executed some harsh and seemingly quick judgments in the Old Testament.  But so did God in the New Testament.  Who can forget the death of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5?  They died because they lied to the Holy Spirit.  There are plenty of examples of healing in the Old Testament just as there is in the New Testament.  God got angry on multiple occasions in the Old Testament and so did Jesus in the New Testament.

The biggest issue to compare the two on is salvation.  Jesus came to save the elect of God or God’s chosen people in the New Testament.  God in the Old Testament saved his chosen people, Israel, on multiple occasions.  God, starting in Genesis through Revelation, was in the saving business.  He is still in the saving business.

God showed incredible patience, kindness and mercy to the people of Israel just as He does to us today.  The God of the Old Testament is the same God as the one in the New Testament.  God and Jesus are the same God and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
