God Has Judged the World in Jesus

Rays through the storm clouds

 

You have probably heard more than once that when things go horribly wrong that God is judging us. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the event that pulled us into WWII. I imagine preachers were proclaiming God was judging the world for its sin. When hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes come, there are preachers who are telling you that God is punishing us. Katrina comes to mind when we heard misguided preaching that God was punishing New Orléans. It just isn’t true.

God has placed all judgment on Jesus on the Cross. That includes judgment for the world. We are now living as Jesus is in this world totally free of judgment.

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17 KJV).

There will come a day of judgment for all those who have not accepted the truth in Jesus. That judgment is only for the unjust.

The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished” (2 Peter 2:9 KJV).
