The recent Panama Papers leaked have brought down some important people in this world. Iceland’s Prime Minister has resigned. The Chief of Austrian Bank is another latest casualty. The bloodletting is far from over.
Tax authorities in many countries are investigating information from the leaked papers. Those who have done fishy business are scrambling for cover.
It is scary to have your secrets exposed, privacy bared and stand naked before the public to be examined. Some may take delight in such spectacle to watch people fall. While some of these people exposed here may very well be deserving of such disgrace, it is another thing to rejoice in evil.
Proverb 24:17: Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
Proverb 24:18: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
When you watch in glee your enemies or those people you don’t like get exposed, be prepared for the day decreed from above where everyone would have a chance to stand exposed for all deeds done in this life to be judged.
Romans 2:16: In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
You think we can keep secrets forever? The thought of having to be judged by the Lord is much scarier than this Mossack Fonseca affair.
Luke 8:17: For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Mark 4:22: For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
So be sober and walk in humility. None of us shall be exempted from the day of reckoning.
Acts 17:31: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Matthew 12:36: But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Romans 14:12: So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
1 Peter 4:5: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
2 Corinthians 5:10: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Ecclesiastes 12:14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Are you prepared for that day?
