THE JUDGMENT OF GOD

Get Audio Version Here: bit.ly/aud1826

1 Corinthians 10:11-12 (NKJV)
Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.


Certain teachers assert that God does not judge His people in the new covenant. They claim it was Peter who killed Ananias and Sapphari, not God. They claim that it was angels acting rogue that executed wrath on people in the Old Testament and even in the New.

Let's examine the veracity of such claims:

In today's Bible verses, we see a direct warning from the Lord through apostle Paul, and the example used was the people of Israel who left Egypt but were destroyed in the wilderness because of the judgment of God. We see that these things happened for our example and learning. (Read 1Cor 10 from verse 1).

From 1 Cor 10, we can see that apostle Paul does not believe that God's wrath does not come upon the disobedient believer. Neither Apostle Peter nor any of the other apostles believed this (see Heb 12:28-29, Jude 1:5, 1 John 5:16-17). They warned believers about judgment for rebellion because they understood God could take drastic measures against some in order to preserve the rest from the leaven of their corruption.

See how Apostle Peter puts it here:
1 Peter 4:17 (NKJV) For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

Go into today remembering that you shall give account for this life you are living. The judge stands before the door (James 5:9). He shall reward the faithful but punish the profane.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you abide in Him and walk in His rewards rather than His rebukes.
—SD Abraham
