He that sacrificeth unto ANY god, save unto the Lord ONLY, he shall be utterly destroyed. Exodus 22:20. This could happen very quickly, or the Lord could allow you to live 80 years calling you to come to Christ, and you STILL reject Him. The end result is destruction in Hell. "God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, AND IS FURIOUS; the Lord will take vengeance ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND he reserveth wrath for HIS ENEMIES. The Lord is slow to anger, and Great in Power, and will not at all acquit (set free) the wicked: the Lord hath His Way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet". Nahum 1:2-3. The Lord's Wrath and Judgment against His enemy's is administered just enough to fit the need. The WRATH of God can come down on a guy in collage who continually abuses and greatly mistreats every girl he "dates", with a very violent, slow death, in a car wreck. That public display of His Justice can be lazer focused against one individual among a crowd of people, and the rest of the guys in the crowd understand, "That was the Hand of the Lord". God's Wrath, Anger and Judgment will be applied EXACTLY where needed. There will be no "spill-over" hitting the innocent. Justice will be meted out only as needed. A CHRISTIAN WILL NEVER DIE UNDER THE WRATHFUL VENGEANCE OF THE HAND OF THE LORD. (Be careful here, yes, Christians will die as they do every day, and go to Heaven, they won't die IN the Anger of the Lord). Death is death, some die in His Anger and go to Hell. Christians may die in His Mercy and go to Heaven. The Lord Chastens those He Loves and covers them in Mercy. Sometimes death is more Merciful than to be alive, WHEN THE LORD IS DECIDING WHO LIVES AND WHO DIES. (No suicide talk here). Preach Christ and Him Crucified, and leave the rest of it in the Lord's Hands. Daddy WILL take care of His Own. All others will have a hard future ahead of them. Be it long, or be it short. Be His, and Eternally, Be Blessed.
