Have you noticed how many political leaders consider themselves to be above the law, acting as if the law is for “regular” people while they do whatever they like?
With this feeling of superiority comes also a feeling of invincibility. Even when they are caught doing something wrong, it seems that they never suffer consequences because of their status or position.
As believers, we can still be assured that God’s judgment of evildoers is assured and that no one will be spared. Revelation 6:15-17 says this:
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; (16) And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: (17) For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
While this passage describes those who will go through the Great Tribulation, the principle of God’s judgment and wrath applies to us today.
If we do not submit to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior now, we will receive God’s judgment later–and it may come sooner than we think.
And when it comes, it doesn’t matter what position we hold or how rich we are or where we stand in society. If we do not kneel before Christ now, we will not be able to stand before Him when He comes as our Judge.
