“Righteousness or Wickedness?”
“You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Psalm 45:7, Hebrews 1:9
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous, but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15
The writer of Psalm 45, is speaking of God’s Son, the King of Kings. Jesus, being God in the flesh, loves RIGHTEOUSNESS and hates WICKEDNESS. The purpose of Jesus’ coming to earth as man, was to REDEEM mankind. His mission was to SEEK and SAVE those who were/are living in WICKEDNESS, those who love their sinful lifestyles and were/are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell. They have NO HOPE, and NO JOY. They were, and still are in NEED of a SAVIOR, One who could make a REAL CHANGE in their lives. One who could bring them out of their WICKEDNESS and into RIGHTEOUSNESS? The One anointed by God, with the OIL of JOY.”
In Proverbs, God tells us that when JUSTICE IS DONE, speaking of the FINAL JUDGMENT, it will bring JOY to the RIGHTEOUS, those who have TRULY given their HEARTS and LIVES to God. But it will bring TERROR to evildoers, those who have NOT given their HEARTS and LIVES to God, and are living in WICKEDNESS. They will experience ETERNAL TERROR, with torment, torture, heartache, pain, agony and despair, in Hell, their FINAL DESTINATION, with NO WAY of ESCAPE.
God, in His INFINITE MERCY and AMAZING GRACE, wants those who practice WICKEDNESS, the EVILDOERS, to TURN AWAY FROM their WICKED lifestyle, and to TURN TO Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING, their sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for THEM, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God, then they NEED to ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have HOPE of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with JOY UNSPEAKABLE in their HEARTS. Which will it be, RIGHTEOUSNESS or WICKEDNESS? JOY or TERROR? HEAVEN or HELL? Come to Him NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
