“In that day the Lord will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days.” (Isaiah 24:21-22)
They will be . . . like. The Lord uses words to help describe what we cannot yet understand. Every piece of wickedness will be eliminated. All those who do evil will stand before the Lord. No one will go unpunished. Those who are in Christ have the hope of what Christ has done, that He has taken our sins upon Himself in order that those who are in Him might be with Him forever.
Lord, help me see that You have covered every event in grace for those who are in You. Though, in this age, it is a time of suffering and pain, yet, in Your eternal purpose, there is always hope and a future. Guide me ever deeper into Your Word that I may live according to Your Word and remain in the hope You have given. May I be your faithful follower this day, doing what is pleasing in Your sight. Amen.
