The judgement of God is not a popular subject. Yet, the bible is clear that God has set a day where he will judge all people, which will involve eternal punishment for some. In this passage we learn that God's judgement is really good news because it means the destruction of the evil forces in the world, symbolized by Babylon. But judgment is also bad news, because we are involved in the evil in the world. There is a tension here that can only be resolved by Jesus Christ.
