Judgement Upon The Wicked

Let the wicked forsake their evil ways The Word says in Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Proverbs 11:21 Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free. 

The Church of God stated in The Destiny of The Wicked thus:

 

Degrees of Punishment

“”The Bible also teaches that there will be degrees of punishment. Paul says that in the day of judgment God will “render to every man according to his deeds” (Rom. 2:6). Men become doubly responsible by the light which they receive. Jesus says, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin” (John 15:22). “That sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful” (Rom. 7:13). Christ said to Pilate, “He that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin” (John 19:11).

Since our sins are estimated in accordance with the light received, our punishment also will be regulated accordingly. For this reason Peter says concerning backsliders, “It had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment” (II Pet. 2:21). “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.… Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God?” (Heb. 10:26, 29). The greater the light and knowledge possessed, the greater the responsibility. (See Matt. 11:20-24; 23:14.)

From the foregoing texts we see that men will be rewarded “according to their works,” that some will receive a “sorer punishment” and “greater damnation” than others, and that it will be “more tolerable” for some people than it will be for others. But all these degrees will be in accordance with the light received and rejected.””

Think of if friends, is it really worth it? A pot of porridge for your glorious destiny like Esau? Thirst and demand for adulation of Haman brought him humiliation and death.  Will you quit striving with your maker and yield your heart in obedience wholeheartedly unto the Lord?

Forsake your evil ways, purge wickedness from within you and seek the Lord while He may be found. Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Salvation, genuine repentance is freely given to you today. At no cost to you friends, think about this. for wickedness cost you your life eternity unending. Think about this and repent today.

Jesus loves you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

 

Truth In Love!

Guide us Oh Lord Our God into the Truth of thy Words by your Holy Spirit, that we might be able to depart from the errors of Our Ways in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

It is so ironic that as Christians, we are apt to point out others walking in errors while we live and breath in error. Mind you, every single one of Us brethren are prone to error due to our sin nature, however being born again exonerate us, yet we get tangled up in error.

Why is this so? Ignorance I believe is a factor here, for if we do not know better, we act and respond to stimulus as per our nature. Ego also is a factor for we might know  the right thing to do, but in order to seem tough, in control, in charge of the situation, we act contrary to the Word and Will of God to maintain the status quo which is unlike our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is all encompassing love, humility, peace, truth, justice, kindness, mercy and righteous.

Truth

Isaiah 32:5 The foolish person will no longer be called generous,
Nor the miser said to be bountiful;
For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the Lord,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
Also the schemes of the schemer are evil;
He devises wicked plans
To destroy the poor with lying words,
Even when the needy speaks justice.
But a generous man devises generous things,
And by generosity he shall stand.

Dear Lord we pray, that we will be bold in Christ to speak the truth of the gospel of God in much conflict. That our exhortation will not come from error or uncleanness, nor full of deceit, but as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we will speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts. in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. Amen 1 Thessalonians 2:2-4
