Scripture: Romans 2:5-8
Romans 2:5-8 is another use of thay-sow-rid-zo as a warning we see in Scripture. It says, “But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who ‘will render to each one according to his deeds’: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,…” A certain segment of the population is treasuring up God’s judgment. That is what verse 5 says that people often do. We certainly do not want to be in that category but the majority seem to live there. Especially the wealthy and the political ruling class – leaders, judges, politicians and presidents that seek only gain for self cannot escape eternal fire! What will they do when judgment comes? And suddenly it will all come about in a moment. They will reap in one moment the indignation and wrath they have been storing up for years because of their destructive, antichrist choices. Jesus has been gracious, extending life, grace, acceptance and forbearance. But suddenly judgment will come and in a single moment it will arrive.
