Isaiah 59-61, Romans 2
1Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
God will do things swiftly- if it’s in his timing.
Reading Isaiah 60/61 and Romans 2, I’m struck by how wide God’s righteous judgment is. He is simultaneously steadfast in merciful kindness while not allowing one sin to go unpunished before His perfect holiness. He does this perfectly in His Son, and we are not to boast in ourselves and negate His singularly perfect sacrifice.
2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
3And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
