It's evident that we are living in the end times season. Scripture makes that clear. Our Creator is the LIVING God and without Him we are nothing. Without Him victory is impossible. The chaos we are witnessing is also spoken about in scripture and things are going to get worse. We need Him! He is not responsible for the chaos, we are because of how many people have chosen evil over good giving the enemy open doorways to do what he's doing. Our paganistic culture has invited and continues to invite evil in and because of this, we suffer. Our paganistic world is worshiping the world, false gods in the form of the New Age religion, and many other false religions, comprising of multiple satanic beliefs and sugar coated lies, which many naïve and blinded people accept as being good rather than evil. We have entered the season which is preparing humanity to accept the Antichrist. Chaos is breaking out everywhere so that the ungodly powers ruling this world can offer a fake solution in order to shut people up, make us complacent and willingly accept the outrageous evil to come in, take it's position, and when everyone is calm and quiet, like sheep to the slaughter, unleash their evil agenda on us. Don't be deceived! The Bible lays this agenda out clearly in the Book of Revelation and warns us of what is to come, therefore, we must turn to the Lord, repent and surrender fully to His authority so that we are cognizant of their evil desires and plans to destroy humanity and secure eternal separation from God.
Firstly, we must understand and accept that God is a God of Justice and Righteousness. The day will come where we will stand before His throne and be judged. God is not ignoring all the evil going on in our world today. Every evildoer and wicked schemer will get their due. That is guaranteed. God makes that clear and we should find comfort in knowing this. "But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgement will be revealed. God will repay each person according to what they have done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honour and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are SELF-SEEKING and who REJECT THE TRUTH AND FOLLOW EVIL, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honour and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favouritism." Romans 2:5-11 (NIV) Hebrews 4:13 states that nothing can be hidden from God, thus no-one will get away with anything! "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give an account." God sees every part of our lives, inside and out. It doesn't matter that no human can see what you do in private when you're alone or, your secret thoughts. God knows, and that's what matters! Instead of living in guilt and shame we are turn to the Lord, confess our deepest darkest secrets to Him and surrender to his power of forgiveness. We don't have to confess our behaviour to Him because He doesn't know about it, He does. He wants us to voice to Him what He already knows so that He can take us through the healing we need in order to become overcomers in Christ.
Romans 12:19 says "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." (KJV) When we believe God to avenge on our behalf we can rest assured there is nothing that we can do that is more powerful than what God can do to ensure that evil and wickedness will pay in a way we cannot fathom. We, as believers in what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross, are to be obedient to what He is instructing us to do because He already has a plan to ensure that whatever evil has been unleashed on us, God's children, will be addressed by our supernatural all-powerful (omnipotent) Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. What God is going to do to the evil and wicked schemers of this world is far more extreme and deserving that what we can vengefully do. We MUST trust Him!
Secondly, it is CRUCIAL that we understand that the verse in Romans 2:7 is NOT saying that if we DO good deeds it will get us on the right side of God's judgement and receive eternal life. Lost souls and wicked men and women "do good." Feeding the poor, taking care of orphans, widows and the homeless is nothing in God's eyes if you don't have faith and believe His Living Word - Jesus Christ. These deeds as believers are a natural desire as a result of our love for God and to serve His Kingdom, not an act to please God. It is ONLY through the gift of grace through faith in what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us that we are saved. Once we are saved by the Gospel of what Jesus did for us we are then to LIVE a life that reflects our walk with Christ. Our FAITH is what God rewards; our perseverance by leaning
