A sleeping lion

(Thomas Watson, “Body of Divinity“)

“Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why 
do the treacherous live at ease?” Jeremiah 12:1

Such as are highest in sin—are often highest in 
prosperity. This has led many to question God’s 
justice. Diogenes, seeing a thief live on affluently, 
said, “Surely God has cast off the government of 
the world, and does not care how things go on 
here below.”

How can it be consistent with God’s justice
that the wicked should prosper in the world?

If God lets men prosper a while in their sin—His 
vial of wrath is all this while filling; His sword is 
all this time sharpening. Though God may forbear 
with men a while—yet long forbearance is not
forgiveness. The longer God is in taking His blow, 
the heavier it will be at last! As long as there is 
eternity, God has time enough to reckon with 
His enemies!

God’s justice may be as a sleeping lion—but the 
lion will awake at last, and roar upon the sinner!

“Yes, Lord God Almighty, Your punishments are
 true and just.” Revelation 16:7

  1. Personally, I believe the LION of Judah is ‘stirring’in 2018. When HE awakens look out evil and rebellious humankind. The ROAR will shake the foundations of life itself. Cheers!

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
