Recently I listened to a speech by Dan Bongino. He was talking about his book Spygate. Near the end of his speech he mentioned that he didn’t think the key players of this scandal (that has been going on now for the last two years) will get anything (will get any punishment). He said that there is no will to prosecute Democrats, because the media is full of them. He said that some of them will be in trouble, but not the key political players, like Hilary Clinton, James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers. The good news, he said, is that we will see cosmic justice. That eventually the truth will come out in the history books.
Well, that gave me some comfort, because it has been grieving me to see these people getting off scott-free.
But really, when you think about it in the light of the bible, we as Christian should know that God will definitely not let those who do wrong go unpunished—because He is a God of justice and righteousness. The bible declares this in five different verses.
See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all who live on the earth, declares the Lord Almighty.’ Jer 25:29
For thus saith the Lord; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it. Jer 49:12
Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord,
But the blameless in their ways are His delight.
21 Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished;
But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered. Prov 11:20-21
Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
Though they join forces, none will go unpunished. Prov 16:5
A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who speaks lies will not escape. Prov 19:5
Yes, we can be assured that eventually justice will be done and all who deserve punishment will receive it.
But when? Sometimes it seems so long. In Revelation 6, we read that those who will be martyred for their faith and go to heaven will cry out to God, asking Him how long it will be before they are avenged for their blood. And the answer He gave is that He was waiting until the right time. Here is actually what he said:
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also. Rev 6:9-11
Yes, no one will go unpunished. It may take some time, but God will see His justice happen. And if it seems that someone is escaping justice on this earth, that should not bother you, because the bible tell us that in the very end the record books will be opened.
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Rev 20:11-15
