Forgiven and the Unforgiven

Pro 2:21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
Pro 2:22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

As the time of the return of Jesus draws near there is more and more wickedness, yet he is coming for a holy people. It is up to us to stay pure and separated from those who desire to do evil. The wicked are not yet cut off. Jude speaks of certain evil men to avoid.

Jud 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
Jud 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
Jud 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

You shall no them by their fruit or utter lack of fruit.

When Jesus returns to earth he will gather together his elect chosen people, but the angels shall also go forth destroying the evil ones; the heathens shall mourn, but the forgiven shall rejoice.

Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The forgiven elect are those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and savior whose sins are forgiven; born again of the Holy Spirit through the grace of God by faith in the shed blood of Jesus.

The unforgiven evil people are all those who neglected so great a savior, whose sins remain. You have been warned. Be ready for his coming, it could be at any time.
