A Reckoning is Coming

John Tilton

Scripture

John 16:8

When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:about sin,because people do not believe in me;10about righteousness,because I am going to the Father,where you can see me no longer;and about judgment, because the prince of this worldnow stands condemned.

Observation

Even in historical times, the world got it all wrong.The Pharisees and Sadducees did not believe, in fact it was due to unbelief that Jesus was sacrificed.The result was Jesus going to the Father.Yet, there will come a time where the non-believers, false prophets, and the devil will be judged and condemned.

Application

Much of what we comprehend and believe according to these scriptures must be based on our faith since we are so heavily influenced by the media and social mediums of the world.The scriptures are so clear that people did not believe then, and people do not believe now.Yet, we are called to be a testament to the message of Jesus Christ and his righteousness.Until that time when Jesus returns, we are called to contend with the world, but not be of the world, and to be a testament to the truth of Jesus Christ.There will come a time when judgement will take place.

Prayer

Thank you, Jesus, for the great reminder that a time of reckoning will come upon your return.Till then, I am encouraged to share the good news of you, and stand for your will, plan, and testament.
