The End Of Evil Doers
God is angry with the wicked every day. If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword.
Psalm 7:11-12 (NKJV)
We know 'The God of patience' (Romans 15:5) is 'Slow to anger' (Numbers 14:18), because He 'Wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth' (1 Timothy 2:4). The greatest evidence of His patience is this unsettling fact: we're still here.

2000 years after Jesus changed everything, we're still here. His disciples thought He would come back quickly--bringing perfect justice to all. And Jesus affirms it repeatedly: 'I am coming quickly' (Revelation 3:11, 22:7, 22:20). But God's definition of 'quickly' is not our own. Hallelujah!

There's still time for men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. The Truth is Jesus. Enter actors, models, and talent for Christ on the airwaves of media. Communication is their specialty. Representing Jesus is their job, and the field is ripe for harvest.

But how does all of this relate to the end of evil doers? What about those cunning con-men whose 'Ways are always prospering' (Psalm 10:5)? Today's key scripture says God is angry with them every day, and that He is sharpening the sword of vengeance.

Perfect justice will come by His law of sowing and reaping. 'God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap' (Galatians 6:7); 'Those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same' (Job 4:8). 'His trouble shall return upon his own head' (Psalm 7:16).

In the meantime (and yes, it is a 'mean' time), get ready. Get busy and get famous for God. Put on your tap shoes and dance a lovely song. 'How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!' (Romans 10:15).

Your righteous witness can turn back the prodigals and call home the lost. That's the best end of evil doers--and the one that God is writing through actors, models, and talent for Christ.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
