God is a just judge,
And God is angry with the wicked every day.
If he does not turn back,
He will sharpen His sword;
He bends His bow and makes it ready.
He also prepares for Himself instruments of death;
He makes His arrows into fiery shafts. Psa 7:11-13
This is why the Psalm that we read a few days ago said, “In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple,” Psa 5:7. God judges justly. He does not give evil a pass. We saw this in Gen 6 and 7: God destroyed the wicked from the face of the earth, because their wickedness had grown so great. He does not take pleasure in wickedness and sin; it grieves and angers Him.
If the wicked man does not turn from his wickedness, God will judge him and it will not be pleasant. The word “turn” in Hebrew is shuv, and it is the root of the word teshuvah, which means repentance. When Jesus was preaching the gospel of the kingdom, He was preaching the exact message of this Psalm: Turn back, which is in Greek, Repent.
Some people think that if God judges the wicked, then He is not love. Wicked acts hurt the perpetrator and the victims. Because God is a God of love, He is grieved and angry at wickedness every day. Because God is a God of love, He will not allow wickedness to continue unchecked forever. Because God is a God of love, He is long suffering and patient, and slow to anger, and calls men to turn, and gives them opportunities to turn, so that He may extend mercy toward them, and the just fate of the wicked will not befall them.
