SIH TOTT ICONRev 2:18 KJV

(18)  And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Christ is symbolically described as having feet “like unto fine brass”.  This helps us to understand that the Lord rules (places enemies under His feet) and judges (brass) His enemies in a just, perfect way (fine brass).

How thankful we should be that our Lord’s ruling hand of judgment is perfect.  He NEVER judges His enemies too harshly, nor does He meet out a judgment that is based upon “favorites” or “emotions”.  No, He judges His enemies justly, giving to them exactly what they deserve…

Romans 2:5-12 KJV – “But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;  Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 

To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,  Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;  But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

For there is no respect of persons with God.  For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;”

If you have never trusted in Christ as your Lord and Savior, this should be your first priority in life.  As you can see, apart from Christ and His work applied to your account, there is no escaping the punishment for the sin you have committed.  If you are sorry for disobeying the Lord, by simply turning from those sins and turning to Christ as your Savior, being willing to follow Him as Lord of your life, you will be delivered from the awaiting judgment for your sins.

For those who have experienced God’s saving grace, we need to take this to another level.   Although He never judges too harshly, many times He withholds deserved judgment through His great mercy and love for His people.   How can a just God do this?  How can He pardon and withhold judgment from those who are guilt of sin?  The key to understand this truth is found in the work of Christ…

2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV – “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Christ, the One “who knew no sin”, “became sin for us” so “that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him”.  In other words, Christ took upon Himself our sin and the punishment we deserved, so that we might receive God’s pardon for our sin and looked upon as innocent of sin.

Folks, as we go through our day, if we have been saved by God’s grace, we can know that we stand before God as innocent, the blood of Christ has covered our sins.  What a wonderful thought.  No matter what our day may hold for us, we are loved by God and declared innocent through the work of Christ, nothing can change this!    His love transcends anything we may face on earth (Rom 8:35-39).  His forgiveness applies to all of our sins.  They are forgotten, hidden, and forever washed away (Isa 38:17, Micah 7:19, 1 John 1:7).

No matter what we may face in this life, let us remember how good He is to us!

May the Lord bless us as we seek to serve Him, the One that is so clearly revealed to us in the book of   the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
