No Peace for the Wicked

Isaiah 48:22
"There is no peace," says the LORD, "for the wicked."


Comment

The wicked have no real basis for peace. For after death comes a judgment which they can't escape no matter how they have provided for themselves in this life.  "The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars— their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur." Rev 21:8 Therefore at best they try to achieve happiness hiding from the truth; hiding themselves in lies and distracting themselves with the petty and vain things of this life. But from time to time and ultimately in the end the truth hits them in the face and they perish. For in the end "the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night."Rev 14:11
