I will REPAY

Many believers foolishly
want to hasten the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are arrogant
and presumptuous. They believe that they are saved even though they
themselves do not follow nor obey Jesus Christ. Most believers are
living in sin and they are conformed to the world. But Jesus Christ
is coming to judge the world. He will judge each and every one of us.
The coming of our Lord will be a terrible day. He will judge each and
every person according to their deeds and we must make sure that we
are always ready for that day when the Lord unexpectedly comes.
I read the words of Paul
in Romans 2:1.
"Therefore you have
no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you
judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the
same things. 2And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls
upon those who practice such things. 3But do you suppose this, O
man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do
the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of
God? 4Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and
tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads
you to repentance?"
God wants all me to
REPENT. Me must make sure that we live in holiness and in
"But because of your
stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for
yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment
Many believers say they
cannot stop sinning, they REFUSE to stop sinning , they are conformed
to the world and they think that God will excuse their sins. because
they believe, but God will judge every man according to their DEEDS.
Verse 6 "God WILL
perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality,
eternal life; 8but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do
not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and
indignation. 9There will be tribulation and distress for
every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the
Greek, 10but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does
good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11For there is no
partiality with God."
People REFUSE to live
righteously, they say that we are SAVED BY GRACE and not by the works
of the LAW.
This is what Paul writes
in verse 12:
"For all who have
SINNED without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who
have SINNED under the Law will be judged by the Law; 13for it
is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God,
but the doers of the Law will be justified. 14For when Gentiles
who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law,
these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, 15in that
they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their
conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or
else defending them, 16on the day when, according to my gospel,
God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus."
The issue is SIN and
DISOBEDIENCE to God. If we SIN we already violate the LAW. We have to
live HOLY and RIGHTEOUSLY in the presence of God. God will judge
every man according to their DEEDS.
We read in Deuteronomy
 "Vengeance is
Mine, and retribution,
due time their foot will slip;
the day of their calamity is near,"
He is talking about those
who disobey the TRUTH.
There is no FEAR of God
among believers. They think that because they believe in Jesus Christ
they can keep on sinning and God will only judge the world but not
them. God is fair and righteous and we must live in the fear of God.
We must serve Him with FEAR and REVERENCE. I read in Psalm 2:11-12
 "Worship the
LORD with reverence
rejoice with trembling.
homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the
His wrath may soon be kindled.
blessed are all who take refuge in Him!"
Every branch in Christ
Jesus that does not bear GOOD FRUIT will get cut off and burned. They
will perish on the way, they will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Be
The apostle Peter wrote in
1 Peter 1:13-17
prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix
your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the
revelation of Jesus Christ. 14As obedient children, do not be
conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your
ignorance, 15but like the Holy One who called you, be holy
yourselves also in all your behavior; 16because it is
you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to
each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your
stay on earth;"
The Lord Jesus is coming
and He is coming to judge the world and He will repay every man
according to their DEEDS. Our DEEDS will determine our DESTINY.

May Jesus bless you.
