The Face of the Lord is Against Those Who Do Evil

March 19, 2023 Speaker: Chris Greer Series: 1 Peter: Following Jesus as Exiles

Topic: Sermons Passage: 1 Peter 3:10–12, Revelation 6:12–17, 2 Thessalonians 1:6–12

God is not an impersonal force like gravity; He is a personal living Spirit who cares deeply about the choices of His creatures, good and evil.
What does the scriptures mean by the term "face"?
The surface of something, what is visible, where one is heading with focus & determination, personal presence and attention given to someone.
We must recognize that God’s face is set against those who do evil, and He will repay them fully in judgement.
God does not judge out of pleasure, He judges because He cannot overlook evil; as a just and righteous king, He must judge the wicked.
