How? Well, just wait, and I will see if I…

The judgments of God upon a wicked rebellious people are catastrophic, and still the rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands. Now the promise comes ... there will be no more delay. God’s Kingdom is close at hand.

Peter reminds us that Christ, the cornerstone, was rejected. We likewise may be rejected. However, Christ is the promised saving stone from Isaiah and the Psalms. Though we may be rejected like Christ, there will be no shame when the ultimate judgement Comes. The stone is a sure blessing of salvation for those who believe, but it is a rock of offence condemning those who reject it.

David declares the greatness and vastness of God's knowledge and judgement in Psalm 11. We all have tendency to seek refuge in earthly places, but David declares he will seek refuge in God. Why? Because God see's and examines all of humanity. Therefore, he knows and executes judgement upon the wicked and the righteous. The wicked to condemnation and the righteous to blessing. Interresting is the declaration of the righteousness of God towards believers as David suffers. The implication is that suffering may be the blessing God gives the righteous.
As Christians we're told in Scripture that we have been given the mind of Christ... but it also tells us that we must renew our new mind every day in God's Word. Our minds are the battleground upon which our old nature & new nature wage war against one another. This war intensifies when we suffer. In 1 Peter 4:1-5 we're given 4 ways to test & examine our mindset... & called upon to arm ourselves with the THINKING of the suffering, righteous, & holy Son of God until He returns in final judgment.
