God Judged. The Verdict? Light has Come

God judged evil on the Cross.  The verdict has already been issued.  The Verdict? Light has Come.  In His coming, death has been defeated.  Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, died to make that happen.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).

Yes, Jesus came as the Way and the Truth and the Life, but evil wants nothing to do with the truth, even if it is the only way to genuine life.  Every piece of worldly evidence tells us that.

Evil always embraces evil.  No amount of Light will convince some.  They scoff.  They ridicule.  They mock.  And they lie, probably more than they realize.  The biggest lie of all is not believing the Judge; not believing the verdict; and not believing in Jesus, the Light of men.  Men have not understood it and have done so intentionally.  There will be sentencing of the lawless and evil ones since no one has another way of getting around the verdict.

Christians believe that God is a God of mercy, but also a God of justice.  For Him to love justice is for Him to hate evil.  So God judged it.  But His mercy calls out to those who haven’t entered the sentencing phase (which always follows the verdict).  Since that day is yet to come,  God extends mercy patiently, waiting for us to see the Light and agree with the verdict that Jesus’ death was God’s judgment against human evil.

Will we come into that Light as repentant sinners, or will we continue to fight the Judge until sentencing begins?  It is a question each of us will answer.
