Mini-Judgment Day Is Here

The great British evangelist George Whitefield (1714-1770) once said (in the light of a plethora of lies and false accusations against him), “I am content to wait till the judgment day for the clearing up of my character. When I am dead I desire no epitaph but this, ‘Here lies G. W. What kind of man he was the great day will discover.’”

Yes, on that day, everything will be laid bare and discovered. As we read in Ecclesiastes, “Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Eccl. 12:13–14, NIV).

Everything—absolutely everything—will come to light, and any sins that have not been covered and cleansed by the blood of Jesus will testify against us on that day.

That’s why Jesus urged His disciples not to fear mere people, saying, “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known” (Matt. 10:26).

There are times, though, when God reveals Himself in the here and now, coming in great power and as a holy refining fire, bringing hidden things to light while we are still in this world. As painful and humbling as these moments can be, they are also a form of mercy: better to be confronted in this present world, when we can still do something about them, than to be confronted on the day of judgment, when it’s too late to change or repent.

Better to receive a rebuke now than later. If we are guilty of covering our sins, refusing to repent and leading a double life, better to be exposed now than then.
