God bestows peace to the repentant sinners, but there is no peace for the impenitent.

Scripture: Isaiah 57:14-21

ESV Text: Isaiah 57:14-21


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 57 14 And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my people. 15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 16 For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made. 17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart. 18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. 19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him. 20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. 21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 610:
And Will the Judge Descend

— Organ Audio

1. And will the Judge descend, 
And must the dead arise 
And not a single soul escape 
His all-discerning eyes? 

2. And from His righteous lips 
Shall this dread sentence sound 
And thro’ the num’rous guilty throng 
Spread black despair around: 

3. “Depart from Me, accursed, 
To everlasting flame, 
For rebel angels first prepared, 
Where mercy never came”? 

4. How will my heart endure 
The terrors of that Day 
When earth and heav’n before His face 
Astonished shrink away? 

5. But ere that trumpet shakes 
The mansions of the dead, 
Hark from the Gospel’s cheering sound 
What joyful tidings spread: 

6. Ye sinners, seek His grace 
Whose wrath ye cannot bear; 
Fly to the shelter of His cross 
And find salvation there.
