The Lamb of God loves you
For the time has come for me to avenge my people, to ransom them from their oppressors. I was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm, and my wrath sustained me. I crushed the nations in my anger and made them stagger and fall to the ground, spilling their blood upon the earth. Isaiah 63:4-6 NLT
God is good. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God. He is “humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:29). When He returns, He will get rid of evil. Because of this, we need to be on His side. We can be on His side for He wants us to be. He “has the power to save” (Isaiah 63:1). But we must seek Him and His righteousness and must repent of our sin. The only reason why you will experience His wrath is because you rejected His offer of love. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will result to punishment of those who prefer living their lives ruled by self rather than by God. But it will also result in God stepping in to save those who were oppressed (Isaiah 63:4-5). If you have suffered injustice, do not take matters in your hand. Let the Lamb avenge for you. “Never pay back evil with more evil... Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, ‘I will take revenge; I will pay them back,’ says the Lord” (Romans 17:17, 19). God is calling us to join Him in His program. It is not us inviting God to approve of what we are doing. Joining God through His gospel is a sign that we are at work with Him in fulfilling His plan for people’s lives bringing them to be a part of His kingdom. “Now if you fear and worship the Lord and listen to his voice, and if you do not rebel against the Lord’s commands, then both you and your king will show that you recognize the Lord as your God. But if you rebel against the Lord’s commands and refuse to listen to him, then his hand will be as heavy upon you as it was upon your ancestors” (1 Samuel 12:14-15).
