Psalm 50: 22
“Now consider this, you who forget God,
Or I will tear you in pieces, and there will be no one to rescue [you].
“He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me;
And to him who orders his way rightly [who follows the way that I show him],
I shall show the salvation of God.”
There will be a time of judgment according to Psalm 50. According to the verse, God, who is the ultimate Judge, summons all heaven and earth into a courtroom to judge the righteous before him and a summons for the indictment (a formal charge or accusation of a serious crime) of those who claim to know God.
Every one of us will face the judgment room at the appointed time (Hebrews 9:27). When God calls all of existence to the courtroom of heaven, the bible says God will judge the living and the dead (2 Timothy 4:1, 1 Peter 4:5). In the end, every knee would bow and tongue confess that Jesus is Lord (Isaiah 45:23, Romans 14:10-11, Philippians 2:10). In the in-between, during court, each is held accountable where God describes the characteristics and behaviors of the righteous and the wicked. A key component is a sacrifice.
According to the psalm, the indictment against the wicked, who profess to know God and claim to follow His laws, but their actions committed proved guilty by participating in gossip, adultery, thievery, and so on. In spite of this, the right standing in God does not deserve punishment for their sacrifices, as they were sincere and intended to honor God. In every situation, God blessed the righteous individual and they were saved by his grace because they acted in love and devotion to God and gave their best offerings to Him.
Mercifully, He said, "consider," giving those who have turned their back on God a choice. No one will pardon you if you keep on acting, speaking, and thinking foully. Or repent; God will provide you with a lawyer (Jesus) who will save you from eternal torment by interceding in court on your behalf. The choice is yours.
Father, Forgive me. I submit and render my heart to Yours. Lord, I confess my ways that were wicked in Your sight. I hide nothing from You. I surrender my way for Yours. I give to You my heart, that my motives change to please and honor You all the days of my life. I ask for You to take control in Jesus' name Amen.
Just as man is appointed to die once, and after that to face judgment,
so also Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await Him
