God is seated up high. He sits upon His throne above the whole world, above all rule, and all authority. He is seated on His throne and rules with justice, righteousness, and holiness. There is nothing that escapes His sight, no one will move His hand. Jesus judges all men with perfect judgment and authority.
And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Revelation 5:13
He lays low all the wicked. Just at the right time, they will receive their just reward. They will be paid back for all the wrong thoughts and deeds they have ever accomplished upon the earth.
He makes a pit, digs it out, and falls into the hole that he has made. His mischief returns upon his own head, and on his own skull, his violence descends. Psalm 7:15-16
It is not that we want them to suffer or that God caused it. But they have brought it upon themselves by their own rebellion, by their own conscious acts of disobedience to the Lord’s commands.
But they refused to pay attention and turned a stubborn shoulder and stopped their ears that they might not hear. They made their hearts diamond-hard lest they should hear the Law and the Words that the LORD of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Therefore great anger came from the LORD of hosts. “As I called, and they would not hear, so they called, and I would not hear,” says the LORD of hosts, Zechariah 7:11-13
They refuse not only to listen to the messengers of the Lord then, His holy prophets. But also they plug their ears, making loud contemptuous noises, they do not listen when warned by the messengers of the Lord now.
But the righteous are not like them. They do not behave in those ways. But they listen intently to the voice of the Lord. They turn from their sins and repent. They know the Lord’s voice, listen and obey.
Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28
We will praise the Lord God for all the wonderful and amazing things He has done. We will sing to Him a new song. With shouts of joy, for our Lord God Almighty rule and reigns. His Kingdom will remain forever, and His rule will never end.
His name is King Jesus and His power and authority are over all creation.
He has delivered us from sin and death. We are forever grateful. There is nothing we could have done without Him. There is no good in us without Him. We praise His holy name, for He is worthy.
Someday we will no longer remember the pain and suffering of this life. It will not even be a distant memory, but it will never come to mind again. What a wonderful day that will be!
Praise, worship, glory, honor, and joy will be ours forevermore. Great is our God and greatly to be praised is His name. Forever we will dwell in the light of His glory!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish before your presence. For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
You have rebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish; you have blotted out their name forever and ever. The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins; their cities you rooted out; the very memory of them has perished.
But the Lord sits enthroned forever; He has established His throne for justice, and He judges the world with righteousness; He judges the peoples with uprightness.
The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:1-10
