The Judge

4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment; 5 if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; 6 if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; 7 and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless 8 (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— 9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. 10 This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority.

2 Peter 2:4-10

We summarize these verses by clearly stating that God is a righteous and fair judge.

We can trust Him to make righteous judgments about gross injustices that have occurred in the world.

We are seeing more and more heinous crimes being committed throughout the world, often times even painful to talk about it let alone having to endure it.

God is a righteous judge. I don’t know how He will judge those who have committed those abuses and injustices, but He will. There’s a certain faith that has to occur to believe He will do waht is best because we do not see in in this life. Instead, we see corruption, vile criminal acts and perversion, and those who look the other way.

As I’ve mentioned many times in this space, the Russian proverb applies: God see everything but waits.

Trust in God and believe He will handle things in His own time and way.
