The reward of the wicked – Part 3
Ps 11:6, “Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.”
Brethren, the reward of the wicked is horribly unimaginable. The case of Sodom and Gomorrah that perished by a fiery hail is a child’s play. If a drop of hell is terrible, what must a full cup of torment be? More than the full cup of misery shall be the reward of the wicked. He shall be held by the snare and then be consumed by fire and brimstone. That evil in which he delights shall slay him. His mischief shall fall back in return upon his own head, and that violence which he fed people with shall be his ruin.
Job 15: 20 says, “The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.” God has pronounced that the life of a wicked man shall be a life of misery and he that sins must suffer, not as a matter of chance, but by the divine and settled principle. Many people care not about their wicked lifestyles, but what they think cannot prevent God from rewarding them according to their deeds. In the days of Noah, many rejected his warning and perished in the flood, likewise in the days of Lot, they rejected his preaching and perished in the fire.
Luke 17:26-29 says, “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from Heaven, and destroyed them all.”
Anyone who will not heed the Lord’s warning shall be consumed by God’s judgment in his wickedness. The question is: will you be numbered among those that will escape God’s judgment? If you wish to be among them, then you must show it now by your lifestyle. You must renounce all forms of wickedness you engage yourself. You cannot escape reward of the wicked, if you are using your uniform to hunt innocent citizens. You cannot escape the wrath of God if you are a murderer, fornicator, liar, fraudsters, etc. It is to your own good to repent now and ensure that your name is in the Book of life. I urge you to amend your ways now, and repent from your wicked ways, otherwise you shall drink from the cup of the wicked man. What shall it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and lose his own soul?
It’s just a little time and the wicked shall be punished. But no matter the length of time that God has waited for the wicked to repent, if they don’t repent they will surely be judged. That is why you must not join them to do evil. “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: (Ex 23:2)
The Lord owns the earth and Heaven. He created the devil and demons and the devil cannot deliver you from God’s judgment, when it comes.
Now is the acceptable time, it is the hour of your salvation, as you read this message harden not your heart. If a sinner repents not, he will certainly drink from the cup reserved for the wicked.
Brethren, the wicked cannot escape, except he repents. His repentance and acceptance of our Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal Saviour is the only escape route available to him, because that is why Jesus came. So, I implore you to accept Jesus now, so that it shall be well with you. Anyone who continues in sin is a wicked person. Now that you have known what the reward of the wicked shall be, if you still ignore the warning, and continue in wickedness, then when the wicked shall be given their reward, yours shall be included.
