The Right Day

17 February 2012 by Brad Williams

Q. 56. How is Christ to be exalted in his coming again to judge the world?
A. Christ is to be exalted in his coming again to judge the world, in that he, who was unjustly judged and condemned by wicked men, shall come again at the last day in great power, and in the full manifestation of his own glory, and of his Father's, with all his holy angels, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, to judge the world in righteousness.

There is a day coming "when the Lord Jesus (will be) revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus" (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8). In that day, Jesus will smite those who have rejected him, and he will wreak havoc on those who have persecuted, maligned, and otherwise made it uncomfortable for those who have given grief to his bride. As it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord" (Romans 12:19).

Jesus will be vindicated in the sight of all the world when he lays waste to his enemies. No one who opposes him will be left out. Not one sin will be overlooked. No slight to his character or his bride will be left unpunished. His wrath will burn, and the world will burn with it. Men will scream in terror; people will cower and pray for the mountains to bury them to hide them from his indignation, from the fury of his countenance. He will not spare. He will not pity. There will be no quarter.

See: today is the day to repent.
