Everyday Promises – 266

A judgement day is coming

Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness. Psalm 96:13 NIV

It’s intriguing that we are encouraged to rejoice in the promise of Judgment Day. Typically, judgment instills fear, as evidenced by the aftermath of World War II. Perpetrators of Nazi atrocities fled or took their own lives, anticipating retribution. Survivors felt a sense of relief at the prospect of these individuals being held accountable for their heinous acts against humanity. Justice was served to those who committed genocide, abused the innocent, stole property, enforced slavery, and wreaked havoc. However, some evaded capture and never faced justice. In contrast, divine judgment promises no escape; all wrongs and abuses suffered will be addressed by a just, omniscient, and righteous God. Despite this, we are all culpable of misdeeds, and it is only through accepting Jesus’s sacrifice that we can avoid condemnation. So, hide your life in Jesus and trust him to make all things right in the end.

    It is a comforting thought to know judgement will be brought on those who murdered innocent children, family members, innocent victims in calculated killings, hatred crimes because of hate filled thoughts and the many other crimes that are carried out on other humans for no obvious reason. God is good!!
