If Mercy came to an end

I had a dream I was in heaven and it was a most dreadful day.  God’s mercy had come to an end.  He had changed His mind regarding the sins we had committed against Him. His anger had flared up and His patience had worn thin. He had reconsidered and decided that He should have punished us instead of pardoning us.

After years in Heaven of allowing indescribable bliss, He remembered all the bad we had done and how we had once treated Him when we lived on the earth. After years in heaven He decided that we had enough joy, and now it was time for us to be punished with the rest. Afterall, He punished the angels and cast them out of Heaven, and they were once perfect. And my heart sank with great dread.

Then I remembered that His mercy endures forever and His forgiveness starts and ends with His cross. And I was reminded that He is eternal, so the payment for our sins is forever. And I know that our God will never change His mind.  And He told us that our sins are removed as far as the East is from the West.

I know we will never be cast away and His mercy will last forever, because He punished His Son in our place. And His justice has been satisfied forever.

For I am the Lord, I do not change, therefore you are not consumed. Malachi 3:6
