Should You Run From Jesus Always?

Isaiah 57:16

For I will not contend forever,
Nor will I always be angry;
For the spirit would grow faint before Me,
And the breath of those whom I have made.

In looking for scripture that says something about what Jesus always is or is not, this scripture came up, although it is borderline. Still it is interesting. Isaiah 57 is a rebuke against evil leaders. The statement in this verse is straightforward. God is angry with evil leaders. But, here He says He will not always be anger.

What is the context?

Verses 15 through 18 are about revival. He will revive the spirit of the lowly (humble) and the heart of the contrite. Israel has been sinning and backsliding, and God will punish them. But then God's grace will prevail and there will be restoration. That is the context... and that is why God is saying He will not content forever, nor will He always be angry. The promise is that the day will come when He will restore Israel and bring revival.
