Our Lord Jesus Christ will judge the everyone with equity

Act17:31because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

Son will judge the world not the Father .

john 5;22

Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,

John 5:25-29

25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come(A) when the dead will hear(B) the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life(C) in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge(D) because he is the Son of Man.

28 “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming(E) when all who are in their graves will hear his voice

29 and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.(F)

The God is the one who lifts up you .so He is telling to

b) ‘Do not lift up your horns.

c)speak not with a stiff neck.

Some arrogant people .self proud

Pharaoh Exodus 5:1,2

When Moses and Aaron asked him to leave the Isreal people to worship God he said

Exodus5:2 And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should aobey his voice to let Israel go?

God punished him with 10 plagues . Then He droved him to death


2Chronicles 26:16,19,21



24 In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. He prayed to the Lord, who answered him and gave him a miraculous sign.(B) 25 But Hezekiah’s heart was proud(C) and he did not respond to the kindness shown him; therefore the Lord’s wrath(D) was on him and on Judah and Jerusalem. 26 Then Hezekiah repented(E) of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem; therefore the Lord’s wrath did not come on them during the days of Hezekiah.(F)

Hezekiah’s heart was proud.but he repented later therefore the Lord’s wrath did not come on them.

3)The God who lifts up the righteous

Psalms 91:14Young's Literal Translation

Because in Me he hath delighted, I also deliver him -- I set him on high, Because he hath known My name

Psalms 75:10

but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted

4)The God who punishes the wicked.


The wine is a picture of God punishing the godless

Drinking the wine, then, means "punishing people". "Drink the last bit" means that God will *punish these people completely

v9 But I will always talk about (what God did).

I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
