The Falling World {12}

This entry is part 12 of 15 in the series Psalm one

Speaking with Nicodemus, Jesus said, John 3:16-17For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” And how we love this verse as Christians.

But if we truly understand what Jesus was saying, we would better understand the message of Psalm one. Because what Jesus is saying is that the world is under condemnation, God’s judgment and that God is going to judge the earth. And because God’s desire is not to destroy humanity; and because he will have to judge sin, God sent Jesus into the world to lead them away from their rebellion.

The reason the world is under the penalty of death is because of its rebellion, its plan to continue to sin, or rebel against God. And rebelling against God at the time of speaking with Nicodemus the governments and priestly order of Jerusalem were plotting to kill Jesus the Prince and God’s anointed king.

And in regard to this reality, Jesus states the reason why God sent in him the world, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” God has given Jesus Christ the keys to the kingdom, therefore, anyone coming to Jesus Christ, Jesus will present them to his Father who will forgive their rebellion against his son.

However, if they refuse to listen to Jesus Christ and follow his message, they will perish. Because God has given no other man the power to judge; and will refuse the defense of any other man on the part of the guilty, but for Jesus Christ whom he has sent to rescue those choosing to obey and listen to his voice.

Standing in the service of the kings of the east, Daniel saw the rebellion, plot, and the persecution of the saints, and the end of the wicked. Daniel 7:21, “I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints and prevailed against them;” However, the prevailing of the horn was not a victory over the saints, he prevailed but only within the allotted time of God’s grace, and patience which is an opportunity for the world to turn from its rebellion.

Nevertheless, the world refused the patience of God and the opportunity presented through the saints of God. Both the blessed and ungodly heard the message, but unwilling to repent, and because of the lust of the eyes, the flesh, and the pride of the world, the failure of the ungodly to believe the king, the command from the king was that the ungodly should perish, and without warning the flood of God’s wrath came upon him.

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repented me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”

God in his faithfulness to his saints, just as he had promised, turned the tide of the battle. He put an end to the persecution of the world against his saints; therefore, Daniel wrote, Daniel 7:21-22, “I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints and prevailed against them” But only “Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Highest, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.”

And because of his faith in the word of God, the righteous man made good on God’s promises because upon his arrival and appearance, the king caused him to come into the inheritance of his peace and kingdom. But because of his unpreparedness, the ungodly was cast away like chaff in the wind. Psalms 1:5-6, Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

The word of God to his people reads, “The priest is to make atonement before the Lord for the one who erred by sinning unintentionally, and when atonement has been made, that person will be forgiven. One and the same law applies to everyone who sins unintentionally, whether a native-born Israelite or a foreigner residing among you. But anyone who sins defiantly, whether native-born or a man born a foreigner, blasphemes the Lord, they must be cut off from the people of Israel.  Because they have despised the Lord’s word and broken his commands, they must surely be cut off; their guilt remains on them.” Numbers 15:28-31.

And because of his failure and unpreparedness, and his defiance to resist the word of God, the ungodly was left under the curse of condemnation because he had failed to act when it was revealed to him that God had appointed a day of vengeance against his enemies who he was.
