Righteousness Rules (Psalm 119:119)

You have removed all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love Your testimonies.
Psalm 119:119

When we consider the condition of the world and the evil that is so prolific, it can seem as though the wicked are winning. There are many who have great authority in this world and have no regard for God. The moral climate of our own country is abysmal. It would be easy to think that sin will ultimately win the day, unless you consider the words of God.

For the wicked, this is the closest that they will ever get to heaven. Their judgment is sure and eternal. Their delusional self-aggrandizement will end in righteous judgment.

The Lord has made everything for its own purpose, even the wicked for the day of evil.
Proverbs 16:4

“For the wicked is reserved for the day of calamity; they will be led forth at the day of fury.”
Job 21:30

But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
2 Peter 3:7

It will be a glorious day when we can enjoy the new heavens and the new earth where righteousness reigns eternally!
