His Promises are sure

20130907-051638.jpgA friend of mine once said,I quote “the only problem I have with God is that he is too slow in bringing judgement on the wicked”.
I am sure everyone sometimes had expected God to act quickly in judgement,when you look at the world and the degradation,the practice of the very things that caused Gods judgement to come down in the past,but today gay marriage is legalized against the word of God,sin is now legal,in the world we live in,murderers going free,people get away with crimes and it seems the wicked are prospering .
This was the issue of the Psalmist in the book of Psalms 73:1-2 “But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”
In our world today it looks like the wicked are prospering in their evil and we are wondering “where is God?” .
But this scripture clears the whole matter “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (II Peter 3:9 NKJV)”
Don’t get it twisted,he is not slow but he is patient,he is patient for our sakes,he desires that all should come to repentance!
This is the reason why this world is still standing and not destroyed with all the evil going on around us,he is a patient God and he wants everyone to have the time and chance to come to repentance.
The bible has showed us in the book of Ezekiel,God said “Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the Lord God, “ and not that he should turn from his ways and live? (Ezekiel 18:23 NKJV)”
God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked,he loves us all,that’s why he sent Jesus,his only begotten son to die.(John 3:16).
Lets not take his patience for foolishness,his promises are sure and he will do what he has promised,yes he promised blessings but also judgement for the wicked,so if the wicked refuses to repent judgement is sure.
The psalmist further said “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end. (Psalms 73:17 NKJV)”
There is a sure end for the wicked.
God is not man,if he says a thing he will droit for sure ““God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 NKJV)”
We quote these scriptures when we talk about blessings but it still applies when we talk about judgement.
