The scripture for today is Hebrews 12:29
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
While we like to speak of the love and mercy of God, and rightfully so, for God is love and full of mercy. But, according to the Bible, the day is coming when His mercy will no longer be offered and judgment will fall upon those who have rejected it. In the days of Noah, God closed the door of the ark with His children inside; those who were outside were lost. They were given chance after chance to respond to the invitation to be saved, but they rejected it and, ultimately, the destruction that they scoffed at came upon them.
The Father cares for His children. He will not allow those who are His to continue to suffer at the hands of the wicked one. So, it is out of love that God brings judgment and delivers His children from a world immersed in sin and violence. The final deliverance will be the total eradication of sin, sinners, and the father of sin, Satan. The consuming fire of God will purge the universe from sin and never again will it exist among the redeemed.
While some think that the act of erasing sin from God’s creation is doing violence to mankind and they are correct. The violence, however, is self-imposed because God has offered everyone on earth the opportunity to be saved, John 3:16. It is the enemy of mankind, Satan, who bears responsibility for the destruction of the human race. God will destroy sin and those who choose to cling to it will be destroyed as the sin they refuse to let go of is destroyed. No one needs to die; Jesus offers eternal life. Receive Him and live.
God bless you as you continue in His service.
