God's Word for Today -- Romans chapter 2

February 26, 2012


Some might think they will escape the judgment of God, but they won’t. The mistake that many people make is the misinterpreting of the mercy and patience of God. God is so patient with us.. He doesn't immediately kill us when we do evil. God has great patience with evildoers. I wouldn't have that much patience. Sometimes I would rather God didn't. When someone is a terrible murderer we might wonder, why didn’t God stop that person and even destroy them.  Sometimes we misinterpret that patience of God as approval or that God sin really doesn’t matter to God.  Not so. Do you think you are going to escape the judgment of God?

The earth in which we live is ripening for judgment. In fact, as I look at the world today and the things in the world today, I wonder just how much longer God can wait before He judges. The Bible tells us that God waited a long time while Noah was building the ark, but the judgment did come.  God's judgment is going to come again, and it is just being stored up.  Romans โรม2:5 5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.

5แต่เพราะท่านใจแข็งกระด้างไม่ยอมกลับใจ   ท่านจึงส่ำสมโทษให้แก่ตัวเอง   ในวันที่พระเจ้าทรงลงพระอาชญา   ซึ่งพระองค์จะทรงสำแดงการพิพากษาลงโทษที่เที่ยงธรรมให้ประจักษ์

It doesn't matter if you are a Jew or Gentile, God doesn't respect you because of your race, your nationality, your family. It is what you are that God acknowledges, and what you are doing, and whether or not you have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Now the Gentiles without the law, they are going to be judged without the law. There is the law that God has written in our own hearts, the conscience, the Jews have the law, God will judge them by that law.  God has written His law in every man's heart. There is that consciousness and awareness of good and evil. Your conscience either excuses or accuses you.
