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 righteousness.
“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 of God,  who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: ”
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 RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7to those who by 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 32:35.
“Vengeance is Mine, and retribution,
In due time their foot will slip;
For 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
And rejoice with trembling.
12Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How 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 WARNED and be CAREFUL.
The apostle Peter wrote in 1 Peter 1:13-17
“Therefore, 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 written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”
17If 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.
