The day of vengeance

This is the topic no one likes to mention.

But in the Bible, there can be no salvation without judgment. There can be no heaven without hell. God is love, so must judge.

God has set a day when he will punish all sin in his creation and so save his people. That means humans under the wrath of God in hell.

We struggle with this truth from God’s word. We love people and so don’t want to see anyone endure this.

Isaiah speaks of the coming day of vengeance when Jesus returns to judge all sin. In despair and sorrow Isaiah turns to prayer.

God is our loving, tender, and merciful Father. In light of God’s judgment, let’s turn to him in prayer following the pattern of Isaiah (63–64)!

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
