It Is God Who Judges Us — Not Satan

God is sovereign. We go through different circumstances that He measured for us. Sometimes we are so busy with our daily routine. We forget that it is God who judges us not Satan.

For it is time for the judgment to begin from the house of God; and if first from us, what will be the end of those who disobey the gospel of God?

And if the righteous man is saved only with difficulty, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?

1 Pet. 4:17-18
Footnote for the word ‘appear’ in 1 Pet. 4:18:

I.e., stand. Among the early apostles there was a strong belief that the Lord Jesus would come back soon to judge the unbelieving sinners, who are ungodly and disobey His gospel (2 Thes. 1:6-9).

Peter’s word here should refer to this. In God’s government, if the righteous, who has obeyed God’s gospel and lives a righteous life before God, is saved with difficulty, suffering persecution as the means of God’s disciplinary punishment that his life may be purified, where will the ungodly, who disobeys God’s gospel and lives a sinful life against His government, stand when the destruction by His wrath comes?
