Summary: some things people need to know about the Lord when judgment comes
WHEN THE JUDGMENT OF GOD COMES
I. YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM HIM 1-4 See Psalm 139:7-12
II. YOU CANNOT HINDER HIM 5-6
He is sovereign and has declared it! He is the Lord God of Hosts.
III. YOU CANNOT HAGGLE WITH HIM. 7-10 God’s judgment would be impartial.
A. Your rearing (nationality) will not save you
B. Your religion will not save you
C. Your righteousness will not save you
Note this statement: “All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword.”
IV. YOU MUST HOPE IN HIM TODAY
It is clearly stated that the judgment on Israel would not be delayed nor forgotten. It was as good as done as for as God was concerned. However, we cannot know that for certain about a nation or an individual today. We must continue to preach truths like Amos 5:4-6 and verse 14. “Seek the Lord and live!” We must heed Isaiah 55:6 and 2 Corinthians 6:2.
