The time of God's wrath is mentioned in both the old and the new testament. It is a historic event in which God starts to deal directly with the satanic forces and the evil people responsible for the destruction of the earth. This event lasts for a period of time, but it is referred to as "the day" of the Lord, or "the day" of His wrath.
This destruction from the
Almighty or Wrath of God is what is necessary to finally defeat Satan on this Earth. By casting out Satan from heaven Michael and his angels won the first battle.
The next battle in this war against Satan and his demons is to restrict the negative influence that
they have on Earth. This begins first by taking out from the Earth what is
good, and second by wiping out the garbage that remains. The first step
is accomplished with
The Rapture, the second step is accomplished during The Day of God's Wrath.

It shall come as destruction from the almighty...Behold the day of the Lord comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it...And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible
