One Minute Devotion – Four Words to Describe the Judgement of God.


lightningcloud

Here is a one minute devotion on the Judgement of God. There are four words that powerfully describe the judgement of God.

 1)   Unwilling

God never judges willingly!

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is … not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

God has never quickly judged…He’s longsuffering, allowing us time to choose. An example of this is the world in Noah’s Day:- Noah preached for 120 years before judgment fell!

God loves people and He doesn’t want to judge them,  but instead is waiting and longsuffering…that all would come to repentance.

2) Unexpected

Having said that God is an unwilling judge, He gives us this life to repent – He will judge us if we die without accepting his free gift of salvation.  We can be lulled into a false sense of security thinking that we have all the time in the world. This happened with a rich farmer in Luke 12. He looked at his life and said “I’ll eat, drink and be merry” But he died that night and as a result he met the judgement of God – Unexpectedly.

3) Unspeakable

In Matthew 24:21 it says:
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

The Judgement of God will be brutal as the righteousness of God judges harshly the devil and his angels and unrepentant man. The tribulation spoken of here is in the ends times as the judgement of God begins on the earth.

His judgement is unspeakable.

4) Unnecessary

The best word of the four is that the judgement of God is unnecessary

You don’t have to be there for these judgments…Jesus died in your place to save you!

Jesus came to stand in our place and take the judgement of God instead of us. And that is awesome.

It comes down our faith in Jesus Christ. Have you  made Jesus the Lord and Saviour of your life?
