Who Shall Be Able to Stand?

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” These words warn each one of us that we will face the judgment of God based on what we’ve done. On that day, your conscience will agree with every sentence for or against you. If you died in your sins, you will know, as you sink into hell, that you are without any excuse. In spite of all God would do for you, you rejected Jesus and pushed yourself down into eternal wrath.

Stop for a moment, and consider. How many times have you abused or rejected God’s mercy? These instances must either be cancelled by the blood of Jesus or added to your account of wrath.

Are you frittering away your years in a luxurious American lifestyle while the world starves? Do you isolate yourself into a cocoon and do nothing whatsoever for the salvation of the lost? What does your conscience say, while you fill yourself with parties, shopping, and feasting? Surely your conscience rebukes your luxury in the face of America’s moral decline–in the face of abortion, a deafening LGBT movement, and relentless assault on the Christian faith!

If you were to face the judgment today, would you be ready?
