Evilness, Punishment, Redemption
Evil brings death to the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished. The Lord redeems the life of His servants, and all who take refuge in Him will not be punished.-------Psalm 34:21-22
The evil deeds that are done by the wicked will be their demise. They will not just die a physical death, but worse than that, they will die a spiritual death. That doesn’t mean that they will just cease to exist. But it is separation from God and His righteousness, and for them an eternity of misery, pain, torture, torment, agony, and ANYTHING that is GOOD. They will definitely be punished for their evilness and that time of judgment is QUICKLY approaching.
Those who HATE the righteous will be punished. Many who live in a sinful lifestyle, one that is separated from ALL that is Godly, and they live in sin daily, practicing it and reveling in it, WILL face certain judgment and punishment for their EVILNESS and for any hatred that they may harbor in their heart for God and His Children. They may believe that they are getting away with their EVIL deeds NOW, but there is a DAY of RECKONING coming, and it seems to be coming quickly.
All who take refuge in the Lord will NOT be punished. These are those who have been CLEANSED by the blood of the Lamb, our Lord Jesus Christ. Those who have turned FROM their evil deeds and have received FORGIVENESS for them, those whose lives have been REDEEMED, those who have come to the CROSS for their SALVATION, those who have given their WHOLE HEART and LIFE to the ONLY one who can SAVE them from God’s punishment of EVILNESS.
If you have not given your WHOLE HEART and LIFE to God, then you are at RISK of facing God’s punishment for the evil deeds in your heart and life and will spend ALL eternity in Hell, the place of TORMENT and SUFFERING. But you have the opportunity NOW to change your direction and NOT face God’s punishment, and to become one of the ‘righteous.’ You do that by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and find refuge in the ONLY one who can redeem you and keep you from God’s punishment. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
