FOREVER

shall be forever“Vengeance Is Mine, I Will Repay”

Samuel also said to Saul, “The LORD sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the LORD.  “Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt.  ‘Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey. 1 Samuel 15:1-3

For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,  but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.  Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.  Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?  For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.”  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:26-31

The bible, the word of God, tells us that God repays men even groups of men for what they have done to His people or His servants! With God justice delayed is not justice denied but God given men a chance to repent while they have time! And even in the current time of life God’s rewards to men for their deeds are positive and negative! God destroyed evil and wicked Sodom and Gomorrah making it to be a nonexistent thing and blessed greatly Abraham who obeyed God when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. The bible tells us:

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise;  for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.  By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.  Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude-innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. Hebrews 11:8-12

“Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;  “but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.  “Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.  “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. “Remember Lot’s wife.  “Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.. Luke 17:28-33

After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.  “Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.  “Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road.  “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’  “And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.  “And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house.  “Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.  “And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’  “But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,  ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’  “But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city. Luke 10:1-12

Evangelical Christians don’t talk about being lambs amongst wolves “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’  “And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.  But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,  ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’  “But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.

Jesus Christ gave His true ones the right to give peace to a city or to take it away by their words in return for their acceptance or rejection by men! And when there is no peace in a city it becomes hell on earth! God’s word is unchanging:

Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry.  And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.   And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”  So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” Matthew 21:18-22

Jesus cursed the fig tree and immediately the fig tree withered away! And when the disciples saw it, and they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?” Jesus didn’t tell them they  should do what He did or curse any other thing?  Rather Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. In other words if they believe there is great power in their spoken words for Jesus also told His disciples:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:12-14

In other words for believers the works that they can do by their words  is only restricted by their unbelief because with God “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” God’s word is true:

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27

For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37

But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Luke 18:27

Whatever God has done before He can and will do again for those who believe! And it’s doers of the word, and not deceived hearers only, who are blessed in what they do and say (James 1:22-25). Yes faith without works is dead (James 2:20). Abraham, a man of faith, demonstrated works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar believing that God was able to raise him up from the dead (Hebrews 11:17-20)! And the bible tells us that works of faith produce great results in the current time of life even making the walls of Jericho fall down after they were encircled for seven days:

By faith they passed through the Red Sea as by dry land, whereas the Egyptians, attempting to do so, were drowned.  By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.  By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.  And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets:  who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Hebrews 11:30-34
