What we are observing in our culture is God stepping back and letting humanity reach the obvious conclusion of it’s depraved mind. With each fist we shake in His face while declaring ourselves modern and wise, we are arrogantly declaring the fullness of our sin to the grand record keeper who is documenting our every word and deed. Every single rebellious act and even our very thoughts of rebellion will be played back for us in minute and excruciating detail very soon.
For the God Follower, the redeemed in Christ, humanity’s spiral into the abyss is heartbreaking to observe, knowing the message we offer of hope is drowned out by the screams of those who so need this hope. With eyes squinted shut and fingers pressed so deep in their ears they nearly bleed, the lost chant as loudly as possible “DON’T JUDGE ME, DON’T JUDGE ME, DON’T JUDGE ME!” to keep from hearing about their depravity and desperate need for healing.
It’s this collective hatred towards the truth of salvation through Christ that God is letting reach it’s fullness, and when He will tolerate no more, this world’s sin’s will be complete and Judgement will begin. Lying and denial will not take place at His judgement seat, only weeping and horror as each man’s deeds are replayed by his accuser, where when asked “how do you plead?” each will have no ability to deny the truth, but will answer in their anguish “guilty” knowing instinctively what awaits.
Yet thankfully, for the God follower, sin’s conclusion already occurred, on a dusty hill, with a blood drenched cross. When we are asked “how do you plead?” our advocate, our Savior, will declare for us “this one is redeemed in My blood.”
