The Judgment of the wicked slumbers not

-But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.2 Pet 2:1-3

-For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Psalm 73:3

-Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.Psalm 73:12-14

Sometimes, it appears that many of the verses in the Bible are lies: The Bible tells us that the judgment of the false prophets who pervert God's Word lingers not and that their destruction slumbers not but the reverse seems to be the case. It is the righteous that seem destined for destruction and judgment.

  Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. 1 Cor 4:11-13

They are hated and rejected by men, poorly clothed, beaten and sometimes can barely eat. They are rarely mentioned or recognized by the earthly authorities. On the other hand, the false prophets live sumptuously. They are loved by the people. They dine with Presidents and kings and own expensive cars and private jets. They have the respect of the world's major authorities and their books make the bestseller lists of the major magazines in the world.

The reason why God's words and judgments seem to be the exact opposite of what is obtained in our sinful world is simply because we are dead. We have been disconnected from the Spirit of God (Our life) and therefore cannot see or perceive things correctly. We have eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear or understand .We have been carried away by the philosophy of the western world that tells us that the main objectives of life are to have money and to pamper our flesh.

We have been brainwashed by the scientific theory that reality cannot be perceived outside of our reason and sight and that anything that does not conform to what we can see or is beyond human comprehension is superstition.

So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.Psalm 73:22

This false conception of life is what blinds us from seeing things the way they are and it is empowered by an ignorant mindset:

The ignorant mindset is the same mindset that made Eve to reject God's word as a lie and prompted her to choose death over eternal life, it is the same mindset that made Esau reject his birthright for the immediate  gratification of a meal of porridge. It is same the mindset that made Judas throw away the privilege of  being a disciple for 30 pieces of silver.

It is also the mindset that currently blinds many of us from seeing that we are dead souls who have been banished away from God and who are badly in need of a savior to return us to our former state. It is the mindset that blinds us from realizing that our bodies are only the temporary abode of our souls and it is this misleading mindset that keeps us from realizing that the more we cater for our bodies and see ourselves as mere bodies, the more we would forget about the state of our true selves (the dead state of our souls):

The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.Isa 57:1

A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:Psalm 92:6-7

The bodily suffering of the righteous comes because God wants to turn their attention to the dead state that they are in,  give them true life, renew them with His Holy Spirit and return them to His Kingdom. The bodily prosperity of the wicked comes because they have totally forgotten about the dead state that their souls are in (because they have been carried away by the lusts and egos of their bodies) and have been condemned to remain in that state eternally.

Never Lie

God's words never lie. However, they can only be understood by those who are attuned with Him (those who have been made alive by His Spirit)
