1 Peter 4:17 – Judgment of the Last Days

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

– 1 Peter 4:17

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In the last days, God will do the work of judgment. The Lord Jesus once predicted: “And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects me, and receives not my words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (Jhn 12:47-48). “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son” (Jhn 5:22). “And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (Jhn 5:27). From these verses, we can confirm that the Lord will do the work of judgment and purification when He comes again. Then how will He do this work? Not long ago, I read a passage of words: “The work of judgment is God’s own work, so it should naturally be done by God Himself; it cannot be done by man in His stead. Because judgment is the conquering of the human race through the truth, it is unquestionable that God still appears as the incarnate image to do this work among men. That is to say, in the last days, Christ shall use the truth to teach men around the earth and make all truths known to them. This is God’s work of judgment.” God will show all the truths to us when He returns, and teach us with truths. If we follow His footsteps and accept all of the truths He expresses, we will gain the life, that is to say, we can gain the eternal life. How exciting it is!

Prayer

O my Lord, we understand that You will do the work of judgment when You comes again from Your predictions. But we don’t know how You will carry out Your work. May You bestow upon us seeking hearts and guide us to know Your intentions.”
