“We accept you just as Christ accepted us.”
Memory Verse
“I will punish the world for its evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; I will
halt the arrogance of the proud, And will lay low the haughtiness of the
terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, A man more than
the golden wedge of Ophir” (Isaiah 13:11–12).
Life Lessons
In spite of the God that the culture surrounding us desires (one that is
only loving and never deals with sin), God clearly intends to allow evil to
continue until that future day when He will bring punishment and
widespread death to rebellious mankind. At the rapture, Jesus will bring
every saved person on earth to Himself and the judgment of mankind
will commence. Jesus called this time “the beginning of birth
pains” (Matt 24:8, NET). The Apostle Paul said that sudden destruction
will fall upon mankind “as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they
shall not escape” (1 Thess 5:3). When God chooses to intervene in the
day-to-day world of mankind in judgment, they will find no place of
escape and will experience His wrath upon their rebellion. So many
people will lose their lives that the prophet Isaiah said that humans will
become “more rare than fine gold” (Isa 13:12). Jesus said that if God
had not limited the future Tribulation Period to seven years, “No one
would survive” (Matt 24:22—NIV). Scripture is clear: God is a God of
love AND a God of punishment!
