(Proverbs 20:8 KJV) A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.
This is another reminder that political leaders should have a concern with “judgment” (justice NASB) (1779). This justice is of the Biblical sort, not the modern PC type. This is the kind of justice that considers abortion immoral and an SUV a personal decision. This king sends liars to hell and political spinmasters are there to welcome them but greets with joy a struggling alcoholic to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. This is a quality we should be looking for in our political leaders.
I also think this is a reflection of judgement day. God will not need to speak. The unwashed will flee His presence. Just His holiness “scattereth” (disperses NASB) (2219) “evil” (7451b). We have this picture of people being driven into the fire of hell. I struggle with that and the idea of mercy. One solution I have put together is that the fire of hell is nothing compared to the holy fire that pulses out of the “eyes” (5869) of our King. I picture the unrepentant, the evil, gladly fleeing from His presence which only leaves one direction to flee.
So? If you know Jesus, rejoice. If you don’t, change. Kind of simple, isn’t it?
