This evening’s Bible study has a focus on a truth about how the wicked will perish.
The day will come when God’s people will not have to be surrounded by wicked people ever again.
While we live on this earth we will hear and see wicked things done by evil minded people. Wickedness will still be seen until the Lord returns for his people and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ are able to enter into the Holy City mentioned in the book of Revelation.
There are times when the good Lord does take some wicked people from this earth and those wicked people will no longer be seen.
WHEW! There is a sense of relief when a wicked person leaves this earth.
I know of a young person that was seriously abused years ago. There came a time when she found out that the man who harmed her had died. He could not threaten to harm her any more. She also knew that he would not have an opportunity to hurt anyone else now that he is gone.
Here are some passages that remind us that the wicked will perish:
“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”
“For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
“Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Praise ye the Lord.”
“For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.”
“But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.“
I believe that most of us feel a lot like the young woman felt when the one who had been wicked towards her died. It is natural that she was relieved that the man could not harm anyone again.
Tonight I am meditating on the truth found in the Word of God that tells us that the wicked shall perish.
THE WICKED WILL FLEE.
THE WICKED WILL PERISH.
MAY SINNERS VANISH FROM THE EARTH.
THE WICKED WILL BE NO MORE.
THOUGH YOU LOOK FOR THEM THEY WILL NOT BE FOUND.
