Punishment For The World

Key Verse

“And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity;” Isaiah 13:11a

Text — Isaiah 13:9-11


Children are always afraid when they hear of punishment. Nobody likes to be punished anyway. But there are conducts that attract punishment. Punishment comes as a result of breaking laid down rules. These rules may be set by the family, school, society or by God. Why should people who are not afraid to break the rules be afraid of punishment? It is selfish for you to beg your Mom, Dad or Teacher not to punish you after you have broken or disobeyed the rules. Is it not right to punish the person who has done wrong? God is righteous, one way of proving this, is that He blesses those who do right and punishes those who do wrong.

Our Bible passage tells us that because of evil doings, the whole world will come under the severe punishment of God one day. But God has made a way of escape for you. Turn away from your bad ways, ask God for forgiveness, make Jesus your Saviour, continue to love Him and tell others of His love. That is the only way to escape the punishment of God.
