Patience or Approval

These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.  Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Psalm 50: 2-22


These two short verses should serve as a dire warning to those who would mistake Jehovah's patience for approval! 


In context this is addressed to the wicked, who are given a laundry list detailing "these things hast thou done."  It has been said that the wheels of justice turn slowly, and it seems to be human nature to think that our misdeeds which have gone unpunished have been forgotten.  Not so, says the almighty God!  He promises that one day all of our sins will be laid out before our eyes, and at that point there is no one who can deliver you from his wrath.


Consider that ...and if it brings fear to your heart, then perhaps you are ready to hear about the savior who CAN save you from the judgment you deserve.
