God is not Judging Now
People are confused about God’s purpose and intentions because they do not see Him judging evil people now. People literally get away with murder and there is no response from God. This has led many to think there is no God at all, because of the injustice in the world.
The answer is simple to understand. God is delaying most judgments until the most opportune time.
- Acts 17:30 – And the times of this ignorance God winked at [overlooked]; but now commands all men every where to repent:
Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead
Acts 17:30 refers to the time before the Law was given to Israel. God overlooked the sins of the antediluvian world and also of this world up to the time this was spoken.
For those who believe on Jesus Christ now during the Administration of the Secret, God forgives and remits all past sins. He obviously did not judge us for our sins before we believed or we would not have been alive to believe – the wages of sin is death.
- Romans 3:25 – Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
There are many judgments of God from the disruption to the garden of Eden to the flood of Noah’s time to the confusion of languages at Babel… I could go on and on. But for the most part He is not judging individuals now.
God conciliated Himself to mankind through the cross of Christ. This means He removed all obstacles preventing people from coming to Him directly. He is not imputing sins unto mankind at this present time.
- II Corinthians 5:19 – To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
God will judge all mankind, each class at the appropriate place and time which He predetermined from before the disruption of the earth. Until then He has postponed the judgment of individuals in order to let evil manifest itself so man can learn the difference between good and evil.
