On The Other Hand.....

The unregenerate don't like it . . . but there are many, many verses warning and describing the judgment of God.  Along with the critical remembrance I wrote of yesterday "there but for the grace of God go I" . . . at the same time considering the awful judgment that WILL BE meted out to these wicked who torment us and God's creation . . . is the other side of the comforting equation.  The regenerate delights in the punishment of the wicked and seeing God's justice and will being done, all for His glory.....

Here is just a sampling, please read . . . . . These are the Words of God Himself, meant for out comfort and edification and knowledge. . . .

Luke 17:1-3 -Jesus said to his disciples: "Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. So watch yourselves."

Romans 14:12  -So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

Revelation 19:2 - For true and righteous [are] his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

Ecclesiastes 12:14 - For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil.

Revelation 14:13 - And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

2 Peter 2:9 - The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Matthew 25:46 - And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

 Matt. 13:40      -As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age."

John 5:27-29  -And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out--those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.

 Phil. 3:18-20  -For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction....

 2 Thess. 1:6-9 -God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power

 Rev. 14:7-11 - He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come...A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."

Luke 17 is one of those on why Christian counselors should counsel from the Biblical perspective and not the worldly "neutral values" and encourage the counselee in whatever value they choose to follow. Bleh! Stumbling blocks.

And not to change the subject, but how is Sky doing? Was he healed enough to get his cochlear implant turned back on? You mentioned that possibility on July 8 happening.
