When an offender does wrong and gets away with it, people begin to despair and for good reason. Imagine the family of a murder victim sitting in court and seeing the killer of their loved one being set free with the help of a fancy lawyer.
It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands the living God. Hebrew 10:30-31.
I say this because God is, and God knows and above all God sees. A person can run, but they cannot hide. They might get away with evil deeds in life, but they won?t get away with it in the hereafter. Proverbs 5:21. Psalms 94:9. Proverbs 28:23-24.
It will do no one any good to say that they don't believe in the hereafter, because once they die; they will see how wrong that is. Luke 16:22-23. And that is when they will have to answer for the deeds done while alive. Hebrews 4:13 . Ecclesiastes 12:14.
If you have been the victim of an evil act and it appears that they will not be punished. Take cheer because God saw it and He will deal with it either down the road in this life or He will deal with it in the hereafter. 2 Corinthians 5:10. Matthew 16:27.
