God of Vengeance

Psalm 94:1-2

O LORD, God of vengeance, God of vengeance, shine forth ! Rise up, O Judge of the earth, Render recompense to the proud.

God is a cuddly, happy, pacifist that would never hurt a fly, …right?  Umm, no.

If he was, there would be no justice.  If there was no justice there would be only chaos and pain.  I think that out of his wisdom and love God gives us ample amounts of grace and of course he’s given everyone the open invitation to be freed from sin and condemnation.  But make no mistake, he brings the hammer.

God will judge the wicked in his own time and ultimately he will will judge the whole world.  At some point Jesus is coming back and the Devil himself is gonna be tossed into a lake of fire.

You don’t want to get on God’s bad side.  In fact, this might be a good time to remind everyone that the only way to get on his good side is through his son Jesus Christ.  “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”  (Romans 3:23)  There is much to fear if you have not put your faith in the Lord.  Put another way, God doesn’t mess around, so know where you stand with him.
