“Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord, for He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in His righteous” (Psalm 96:12-13).
Instead of fearful dread the church of the Lord Jesus Christ should look to God’s final judgement with a sense of joyful anticipation. While the court of public opinion has maligned and marginalized his church, it’s at the judgement bar of God that his justice will prevail and the life of faith vindicated once and for all. Even so, Lord Jesus, come.
