Not Our Job

“I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with me.” —Isaiah 63:3

The Lord Jesus judges the nations by His own power, without any assistance or human help. He does not need a coalition of armies to get Him out of trouble or to help Him overcome the enemies of God. John 5 tells us that the Father has committed all judgment to the Son. He does this singlehandedly!

Revelation does talk about the armies of heaven that come behind Him, but Jesus doesn’t need those troops. He can win this victory, and He does, with His own strength.

The judgment and vengeance on the world and on evildoers are not our job! It’s His. He can do it, and He will, in His time. If it were up to us, we’d probably do it a lot sooner. But Jesus is patient. He’s waiting to tread this winepress of the wrath of God the Almighty until all people have been given a chance to hear, to believe, and to repent of their sins.

Make it Personal

Pray that those in our world who don’t know Jesus will repent of their sins and believe in Him before it’s too late.
