“Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God” (Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 NKJV). When people aren’t immediately “struck down” from Heaven by God; or their case drags on through the court system; or there is not enough “justice” in the Justice System to bring about conviction, people think they have gotten away “scot-free!” The human justice system may be completely corrupted, but God’s Judgment and punishment is not!
