Overview

We’re going to look at one of the key conundrums in the Bible. And if we understand it, we’re going to be able to understand a lot of the Bible. It’s also a conundrum in human thought, and it’s part of the human condition. You see it in this passage, where it says, “He comes to judge the earth.” Everybody is exalting, clapping their hands, singing together for joy. Why? Because God is coming to judge.

No one is ever happy in a courtroom. So what in the world is going on here? We’re talking about judgment day, the final judgment of the earth, and it’s a time of joy. How does that work? Let’s look at the promise of judgment, the problem of judgment, and God’s provision for judgment that makes judgment a promise and not just a threat.
