The pouring forth of all His wrath!
(Thomas Brooks "Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices")
"I will sing of Your love and justice." Psalm 101:1
Mercy is God's Alpha—justice is His Omega.
When God's mercy is despised—then His justice takes
God is like a prince, who first hangs out the white flag of mercy; if this wins men—they are happy forever! But if they remain rebellious, then God will put forth His red flag of justice and judgment.
If His mercy is despised—His justice shall be felt!
God is as just—as He is merciful. As the Scriptures portray Him to be a very merciful God—so they portray Him to be a very just God.
Witness His casting the angels out of heaven and His binding them in chains of darkness until the judgment of the great day.
Witness His turning Adam out of Paradise.
Witness His drowning of the old world.
Witness His raining hell out of heaven upon Sodom.
Witness all the troubles, losses, sicknesses, and diseases, which are in the world.
Witness His treasuring up of wrath against the day of wrath.
But above all, witness the pouring forth of all His wrath upon His bosom Son, when Jesus bore the sins of His people, and cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me!"
As I know not the man who can reckon up his mercies; so I know not the man who can sum up the miseries which are coming upon him for his sins.
God is slow to anger—but He recompenses His slowness with grievousness of punishment. If we abuse His mercy to serve our lust—then He will rain hell out of heaven, rather than not visit for such sins.
Men shall be deeper in hell, because heaven was offered unto them—and they abused God's mercy. Sins against God's mercy, will bring upon the soul the greatest misery!
