Romans 2: 6-11

6For he will render to every man according to his mitzvoth works: 7to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8but for those who are factious (schemers) and do not obey the tma emt-truth, but obey ur raa -wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. 9There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, 10but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. 11For hwhy shows no partiality.

We live by our choices. Each of us has a moment of awareness, an awakening if you will, when the Ruach (Spirit) penetrates our hard heart and reveals the wickedness we have embraced. It does not matter what position we have attained, who our family is or what our circumstance in life is. Each of us has moments when we know guilt. Christians call it conviction. In that moment, we can turn to Y'shua-Jesus for compassion or turn back to those whose thinking and life make us feel as if we are not so bad after all. May I just say, the old image of the scales of life are not so far off. The wicked, evil, even sinful behavior of our life is stored up on our account. The wrath of YHVH-God will be given to you in full as payment for your choice. But if in the moment you turn to Y'shua-Jesus, who suffered YHVH's wrath on the cross, paying in full your penalty; if you then take steps, even baby steps, toward a life pleasing to Him, there will be peace with honor, even glory, on that same Day of the LORD. Choose wisely.
