Romans 2:2

But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
Romans 2:2

The “such things” alludes back to verse 1 where people were judging others for the same stuff that they were doing.

This verse says that God has an end judgment for the hypocrites of today, that it is proper, and that it is just. It is really hard for people who have been dumped on to believe that the dumper is going to be held accountable, but here is one verse of promise that they will.

And best of all, it will be according to truth! They won’t get to weasel out of it or put on a big front of half-truths like they have done most of their lives. Some people are so successful at manipulating others in order to get their own way much of the time that they are deluded into thinking that getting what they want, not what they deserve, is normal.

If people would deal in truth perfectly now, then Judgment Day would be a snap.  The pushy folks who are walking over people with their lies now are going to get stepped on by God on Judgment Day.

Romans 2:1

Therefore you have no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
Romans 2:1

It is interesting that there is NO EXCUSE.

People often try to cover up there own crimes and sins by judging and accusing others of what they are doing or have done themselves.

This can be an indicator of demonic activity. People who make false accusations are often guilty of the same thing they are accusing someone else over.

Profligacy

But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth.
Romans 1:18

If you are used to hearing the King James Bible, then the Message version above will sound a little weird.

Here is a more literal translation:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all viciousness and profligacy of conduct who through maliciousness hinder the truth.

Of course, you need to know what profligacy means if that is going to make any sense. A profligate is a person who spends recklessly, seeking indulgent pleasure. In this context, it implies that people are wasting the treasures of God on whatever feels good.

Truth is a treasure of God. Lying wastes it. When the lies grow extensive enough, the wrath of God will be revealed.

FYI

If you had read this blog from the beginning, you would know that its main purpose is to lay a scriptural foundation showing that:
• You will be held accountable for acts and words;
    God holds you to moral culpability.
• You cannot hide your acts and words forever; they will come out.
• Twisting the truth is lying; lying has horrible penalties.

It you don’t think scripture has any value, then you will not like this blog. But if you believe the Creator revealed Himself in the Holy Bible, then this blog will reveal a side of God that is seldom shown in the pulpits of our churches.

But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.
Ephesians 5:13

The Bible In Basic English, which has roughly a second-grade reading level, says: But all things, when their true quality is seen, are made clear by the light: because everything which is made clear is light.

The Message Bible says this more graphically: Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ.

Christians actually have a mandate from God to reveal this stuff. True, Proverbs 17:9 says:  He who conceals a transgression seeks love, But he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends. Exposing another person’s lies is a fast way to make enemies, but the liar is the one responsible for making the enemy, not the person who tells the truth. Telling the truth did not cause the problem.

Telling the truth is actually the cure.

…there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 
Matthew 10:26

Earlier in the chapter, back up in verse 17, it says, “But beware of men, for they will hand you over to the courts…” Jesus says don’t worry about it; it will become a testimony for His sake.

When someone hands an innocent person over to the courts, they have put their own soul in a precarious place.  They have ranked it up a notch on how God will judge them. They cannot plead that they were duped or did not know what they were doing. Turning someone over to the courts does not happen “by accident.”  There is very little excuse for handing a person over to the courts without evidence.  It nearly always is based on lying and presumption.

 Currently, the US judicial system usually lets people who make accusations have a lot of leeway. They can say that they were “concerned” and there was “no intent” to misrepresent.  This is not the case with the Lord.  In His book, these people are Ninth Commandment Liars. Many are under a false sense of security, and many have convinced themselves that they “did the right thing” to report their suspicions.

 In many cases, when the truth is eventually revealed, the truth will be that the liar perpetrated a crime far greater than the alleged one they lied about.  Their one “tiny” lie will have destroyed far more in the way of human life than what actually happened. This will come out. The concealed will be revealed and the real criminals will be the ones who made the report.

Nothing Hidden

 

For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
Luke 8:17

But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
Luke 12:2

Depending upon which side of the secret you are on, these can be very exciting verses. God knows all, and will eventually reveal all. The best way to diffuse the coming judgment is to fess up now and make amends.
