Protective Judgments (1)

The scriptures record a different type of judgment that does fit within a covenant that spells out the conditions and consequences of obedience. The purpose of these judgments is not to strengthen a covenant, but to prevent evil from expanding and spreading. God has committed to preventing evil from taking hold on earth through a powerful nations and empires. He will sometimes send judgment to destroy the source of evil, before it does too much harm. These judgments are not redemptive. Their purpose is to destroy evil, before it gets out of control.

I will describe protective judgments in more detail in the next few posts.
