Before the Silence, #7
Judgment is coming. There will be a point when all will be held accountable. Read Malachi 3:1-4.
“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord , as in days gone by, as in former years.
Malachi 3:1-4 NIV
God will always bring our actions into judgment. We must be held accountable for where we have fallen short, where we don’t measure up. None of us are perfect and we will all fall short of the expectations and requirements of a holy God.
None of us can stand in that day. Our only hope is found in our relationship with Jesus Christ. He is the only one who can stand in that day. Have we placed our trust in Him? Does He lead us every day.
