The Final Act on the Final Day
This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God.
2 Thess. 1:5
Judgment Day refers to a future event when God will call all men and women to account for their acts of righteousness or wickedness done on this earth. All wrongs performed on this earth will be righted, all righteous deeds honored, and all souls called into account. The Apostle Paul declared that our judgment is imminent, â€œThe Lord is nearâ€ (Phil. 4:4). Christians will be accepted based on Christâ€™s work on their behalf. Their good works were all achieved through Christâ€™s shed blood and his most gracious grace. Believers do not have to demand justice in this life for the Lord himself will right all wrongs on Judgment Day. Believers are free to minister life not justice for God for in his omniscience is perfectly capable of knowing men and womenâ€™s hearts.
When the endÂ comes and we are taken for judgment above, we will then clearly understand in God the mysteries that puzzle us now. Not one of us will think to say, “Lord, if it had been some other way, all would be well.”
