How frightening it would be if God treated this wicked world according to its sins! He is presently storing up His wrath, because He is rich in mercy and is not willing that any perish (see Rom. 2:5; John 3:36; 2 Pet. 3:9). But the day will come when He will be revealed in flaming fire to take vengeance (see 2 Thess. 1:7,8). Knowing that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, we must persuade men to run to the shelter of the cross.
“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.” Charles Spurgeon
Jeremiah 30:15 Why do you cry about your affliction? Your sorrow isincurable. Because of the multitude of your iniquities, Because your sins have increased, I have done these things to you.
