5:22 Do not allow your mind to become discouraged despite what form My admonition or anger takes. I never say that you cannot be saved from any difficulty or illness. They come from My hastening that wishes to save everyone.

Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2009)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:50

No matter how stern God’s “admonitions” or warnings may be or how serious the health disorders representing God’s “anger” may be, none of this is to say that God the Parent will not save those who receive them. God the Parent provides those experiences precisely because of the parental love that desires to save humans, or as verse 21 says, “out of My deep love for you.” Far from being unwilling to save us humans, God expresses “admonition or anger” for the express purpose of saving us.
