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!

 

 

 

Praise To The Lord Most High!

praisePsalm 75
For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” A psalm of Asaph. A song.

1 We praise you, God,
we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 You say, “I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge with equity.
3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.
4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”
6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.
7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.
8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.
9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,
10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”
