Bible Verses on Reckoning

The Greek verb logizomai appears 40 times in the New Testament, and 34 of those uses are by Paul. Its Hebrew equivalent occurs dozens of times in the Old Testament. I have selected from both Testaments a variety of verses that demonstrate the word’s significance, diverse contexts, and varieties of translation. To understand the importance of this word for the biblical concept of justification by grace through faith, be sure to read my exposition of Romans 4.

See Definition of Reckoning for background information on the meaning of logizomai.

In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word ḥāšaḇ (to “think” or “account”) is closest in meaning to logizomai and is chiefly translated as such in the Septuagint (the Greek OT). According to the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (Eichler), “The other terms which it translates are found only rarely: hāyâh, to be (2 Sam. 19:44 [43]); mānâh in the niphal, to count (Isa. 53:12); qārā’, niphal, call (Deut. 3:13); and šûḇh, return, consider (Isa. 44:19).”

Unless otherwise noted, Bible verses are from theEnglish Standard Version, which instead of reckon uses such terms as count, credit, hold, take, esteem, impute, or regard.

Word study is only one part of proper interpretation. Context is a critically important factor Bible translators must weigh when selecting an appropriate English word for the parent Greek or Hebrew term. As evidenced by the numerous words English translators have used for logizomai, it has a fairly wide semantic range. Nevertheless, as you can understand from its definition, the word possesses important meanings some English translations may not fully convey.

As you read these verses, I’m not suggesting that you substitute “reckon” or “reckoned” for each boldfaced term. Rather, apply your new understanding of logizomai and see if you come away with a richer understanding of the passage. Let’s look at a couple examples.

Numbered or reckoned?

Look below for Isaiah 53:12, where the Servant of the Lord was “numbered with the transgressors.” In Luke 22:37 Jesus applies this verse to himself. Now read this passage as Keil and Delitzsch rendered it in their Old Testament commentary: “He has suffered Himself to be reckoned with transgressors.” Matthew Henry and John Calvin used the term “ranked.” Ask yourself this: Who did the numbering or reckoning or ranking? You can find clues in Isaiah 53:3 and 4, which have two more uses of logizomai.

The verb “number” has a static connotation in comparison with the more dynamic “reckon.” It’s the difference between merely counting objects and moving objects from one category to another as we form judgments about them in our mind. In reckoning Jesus a transgressor, “we” (see verse 4) regarded our holy Redeemer as a violator of God’s law. Of course, there is great irony here. God in a sense also reckoned Jesus a transgressor, as he placed our transgressions on the Redeemer so he could in turn reckon us righteous.

Esteemed or reckoned?

Now look again at Isaiah 53:3 and 4, where ESV and most translations have “esteemed” for logizomai (Septuagint translation of the Hebrew verb ḥāšaḇ). Here is what Keil and Delitzsch say about this phrase in verse 3:

He was despised, and we did not think Him dear and worthy, but rather “esteemed Him not,” or rather did not estimate Him at all, or as Luther expresses it, “estimated Him at nothing” (châshabh, to reckon, value, esteem…).

Keil, C. F., & Delitzsch, F. (1996). Commentary on the Old Testament (Vol. 7, p. 507). Peabody, MA: Hendrickson. Logos edition.

The phrase “esteemed him not” might be better rendered “regarded him as nothing” (following Luther). Turning to verse 4, here “esteemed” is quite awkward, and “reckoned” or “regarded” would be much clearer. NIV, alone among translations, gives the best sense of both verses:

3 He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.

Old Testament

Genesis 15:4–6

4 And behold, the word of the LORD came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir.”
5 And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”
6 And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness.

Leviticus 7:18

18 If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten on the third day, he who offers it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be credited to him. It is tainted, and he who eats of it shall bear his iniquity.

Leviticus 17:3–4

3 If any one of the house of Israel kills an ox or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or kills it outside the camp, 4 and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it as a gift to the LORD in front of the tabernacle of the LORD, bloodguilt shall be imputed to that man. He has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people.

Numbers 18:25–30

25 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 26 “Moreover, you shall speak and say to the Levites, ‘When you take from the people of Israel the tithe that I have given you from them for your inheritance, then you shall present a contribution from it to the Lord, a tithe of the tithe.
27 And your contribution shall be counted to you as though it were the grain of the threshing floor, and as the fullness of the winepress.
28 So you shall also present a contribution to the Lord from all your tithes, which you receive from the people of Israel. And from it you shall give the Lord’s contribution to Aaron the priest.
29 Out of all the gifts to you, you shall present every contribution due to the Lord; from each its best part is to be dedicated.’
30 Therefore you shall say to them, ‘When you have offered from it the best of it, then the rest shall be counted to the Levites as produce of the threshing floor, and as produce of the winepress.

2 Samuel 19:18–19

18 And Shimei the son of Gera fell down before the king, as he was about to cross the Jordan,
19 and said to the king, “Let not my lord hold me guilty or remember how your servant did wrong on the day my lord the king left Jerusalem. Do not let the king take it to heart.

Psalm 32:1–2

1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

Psalm 44:22

22 Yet for your sake we are killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.

Psalm 106:30–31

30 Then Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was stayed.

Isaiah 29:16

16 You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be regarded as the clay, that the thing made should say of its maker, “He did not make me”; or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?

Isaiah 53:3–4

3 He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:12

New Testament

Luke 22:37

37 “For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.”

Romans 2:26

26 So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision?

Romans 3:28

28 For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.

Romans 4:3–11, 22–25

3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.”
4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due.
5 And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,
6 just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:
7 “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;
8 blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.”
9 Is this blessing then only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness.
10 How then was it counted to him? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but before he was circumcised.
11 He received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. The purpose was to make him the father of all who believe without being circumcised, so that righteousness would be counted to them as well,

22 That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.”
23 But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone,
24 but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord,
25 who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.

Romans 5:13

13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. (The Greek verb here is ἐλλογέω, which transliterates as ellogeó and has the same root as logizomai and similar meaning. It is found only here and in Philemon 18.)

Romans 6:11

11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:18

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Romans 8:36

36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

Romans 9:8

8 This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.

Romans 14:14

14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.

1 Corinthians 4:1

4:1 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

1 Corinthians 13:4–5 (NASB)

4Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

2 Corinthians 3:5

5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God

2 Co 5:18–19

18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 10:2

2 I beg of you that when I am present I may not have to show boldness with such confidence as I count on showing against some who suspect us of walking according to the flesh.

2 Corinthians 11:5

5 Indeed, I consider that I am not in the least inferior to these super-apostles.

Galatians 3:6

6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

Philippians 3:12–13

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,

2 Timothy 4:16

16 At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them!

Philemon 18

If he has wronged you at all, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. (This is translated not from logizomai, but the related verb ellogeó—see Romans 5:13.)

Hebrews 11:19

19 He considered that God was able even to raise him from the dead, from which, figuratively speaking, he did receive him back.

James 2:23

23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God.

"He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him".

What I want you to realise is that although we live in man's day, God's day of reckoning is coming, and there is a day - and I believe it's coming very soon - when the tables will be turned, and when justice will be done...

One verse, just one reading from the book of the Revelation, the last book in the New Testament, chapter 1 - Revelation chapter 1, of course if you're familiar in any way with the Scriptures you will know that the Revelation primarily speaks of things that are yet to be in the prophetic scheme of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Chapter 1, just one verse, verse 7: "Behold, he", speaking of the Lord Jesus, "cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen".

I think many people think, certainly folk that I talk to, whether they be Christians or not, that in the day in which we live there seems to be much suffering on the side of that which is good. Everything that is evil and not good, or against the things of God or even just plain morals, is triumphing. Good is suffering, or God is suffering, and evil is triumphing - and it seems that the things of God and Christianity in the church is on the backfoot, and atheism or immorality, or whatever you want to call it: other religions, or non-religion, or just plain worldliness, seems to be on the advance. If you feel like that, even if you're not a Christian or born-again, you're not alone and you won't be the first person that's ever thought that. David, who wrote the Psalm that we're reading from tonight, also experienced that in his own day and age, and was able to give vent to it in this Psalm and many other Psalms.

In fact, one Psalm in particular is renowned for this theme right throughout it - Psalm 37, where he says: 'Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity'. Now, why would you be worried about evildoers or envious of those who are workers of iniquity? The reason why David vented that was simply because it seemed in his day that those who were doing evil were prospering, and those who were doing good were suffering for it. That is the norm, let me say that again so that you can catch it: that is the norm for this age in which we live. That is to be expected, this is the way things are to be according to the word of God - it says that the age in which we live, the day in which we live is man's day, it's man's day: the day, age, and epoch where man will have his way. That's why evil triumphs and good suffers, but the Bible also tells us of a day that is yet to come when the tables will be turned, and God will have His day, and His day will be a day of reckoning.

I would say that there's not a person here in our gathering this evening who has not been wronged at some time and place in their life's experience. Something has been done to you by an institution, or by a loved one, or by a friend - someone you counted a friend - or an enemy, and you have been wronged. You were in the right, they were in the wrong, and you've often wondered within your heart, that thing that's pierced your soul down deep and hurt you for so long: will that wrong ever be ironed out? Will there ever be a day of reckoning when wrong things that have been done will be straightened and put right?

This voice of heathen indignation has always been heard down through the ages, and I believe that it's heard in a greater extent today than it has ever been heard...

Maybe it's when you look at the great atrocities that we see in our land, and have seen done over the years, and maybe right across the world, the disasters that we've seen and the terrorist attacks, and even the Holocaust of the second world war. We wonder will there ever be comeuppance? Will these people - Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin - will all these horrible monsters of humanity get away with these tragedies? Hitler, perhaps, shot himself - does that mean he's scot free, that he's got off with this greatest crime against all humanity? I think, wouldn't you say that there's something in all of us - even the most warped and depraved and sinful, immoral individual - that cries from the very depths of our being for justice, for righteousness, for vengeance, for fairness in the end. But because we live in man's day, it is not happening as we speak, and as we see and hear things around us, evil more often gains the upper hand than not. But my friend, what I want you to realise is that although we live in man's day, God's day of reckoning is coming, and there is a day - and I believe it's coming very soon - when the tables will be turned, and when justice will be done.

Let's first of all think of this day that we live in that is man's day, and I want you to see that this is very clear not only from the word of God, but from the things that you see going on around you. As you look at Psalm 2, he asks the question: 'Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?'. If man's day is marked by anything, it's marked by heathen indignation towards God. If I could simplify it like this: men are angry with God. Man is venting, on a continual basis right across our globe, a rage against God and everything to do with God, and everything that comes from God. The word 'rage' literally means 'to assemble tumultuously', like a great riotous throng the whole of humanity seems to rally to the cry of raging and protesting against God. I'm led to believe the original word here means what it is for a horse to neigh, you know when you see a horse neigh when it's pulling at the bit, it's about to go into the race and it just can't wait - and it neighs and you see the steam coming out of its nostrils on a cold day like today. Or it's a horse all metalled up in armour and ready to go into the very depths of battle, bloodthirsty, and it neighs! That's the picture here: humanity is like a beast that neighs in the face of God in rebellion and arrogant pride, angry against God.

This voice of heathen indignation has always been heard down through the ages, and I believe that it's heard in a greater extent today than it has ever been heard. If there is a sign that we are in the end times and in the last days, and it's not long for the Lord Jesus to return again, it is this heathen indignation: man's anger directed toward God. Do you ever think about this? Do you ever wonder within the depths of your soul of the lack, as maybe you see it, of religiousness? Immorality, a lack of reverential fear for anything to do with God or eternity - and you look perhaps as a God-fearing, moralistic, upstanding individual at the terrible abominations that are going on in our society and being legalised by our government, and do you not say to yourself: 'This can't go on like this, surely it must come to an end one day?'? I'll tell you dear friend, that if you're saying that, you're right! Whatever that is in the depths of your soul, maybe it's planted by God as He's written His law in your heart in conscience - I don't know what it is, maybe the Spirit of God is speaking to you, maybe you've been brought up under the word of God and you've been told about this day of judgement of God's wrath and the return of the Lord Jesus - I don't know what it is, but let me tell you this: when it rises in your bosom, 'Surely there must be and end to all this?', you're right! You're right!

What does this world want that it rages in heathen indignation towards God? I'll tell you what it wants: it wants freedom from God. That's what it wants! Freedom from God! The kings of the earth all set themselves toward God, take counsel together against the Lord and Christ, and they want to break - verse 3 - God's bands from them. They want to loose God's cords and influences and restraints from their lives! Here, friends, is the fatal mistake that humanity has made right from the very beginning of time, and it is this: freedom is not achieved by breaking the bands of God off you - you mark this - freedom is only achieved when you submit to God and His Christ's salvation.

What does this world want that it rages in heathen indignation towards God? I'll tell you what it wants: it wants freedom from God. That's what it wants!

But sadly humanity, for all time, has made this mistake and they have thrown off God's rule. They have just invited bondage and destruction, the very thing that they're trying to get away from. If I can prove this to you by illustrating what it was like in the 1960s - I obviously don't remember it, but I know enough about it from living in the overflow of it in my childhood and teenage years. It was the epoch of revolution and freedom: free love, free drugs, free drink, free morals, everything was free! The cry was to throw off the restraints of society and the institutions that were the ground and foundation of society, but what has it led to today? What is the offshoot and the fallout of it? It is a society wrecked with drug abuse, alcoholism, promiscuity, lack of morals, venereal diseases, and the demise of the marriage unity and the family bond. That's what we get from man's attempt at freedom and breaking loose from the restraints of God!

I wonder am I speaking to someone, and your whole life's experience has been a cry for freedom, getting away from the restraints of your parents, the restraints of your school, your upbringing, your society, your church. I don't know what specifically it is, but your heart genuinely yearns for freedom - and because of that you've been pushed to resist anything that smacks or smells of God! Anything to do with God! You resist your family's prayers - they've been praying for you, since you've been a child, to receive Christ as your Saviour. Your Sunday School teacher pleaded with you when you were at his knee. Your husband, your wife is saved, and they long and shed many a tear through a waking night for your soul's salvation - and you're throwing of all those restraints because you see that as hindering your freedom. My friend, you're putting yourself in bondage!

The mark of this day and age in which we live is man's anger toward God. The second thing here is vain imaginations. The kings, it says in the second part of verse 1, 'the people', the nations, 'imagine a vain thing'. In their selfish ambition they plot and plan ways of avoiding God's rule. You see this is the next step: you're angry against God, and then you decide: 'Well, I'm going to do something about this! I'm not going to be restricted by the standards of my parents, or by my church, or even by my society. I'm going to plan a way' - whether it's in the home - 'I'm not going to take part in family worship or family prayers. As long as I can I'm going to try to get out of going to church on a Sunday morning or a Sunday evening, or I don't want to go to that gospel meeting because it makes me feel uncomfortable - and I'll think of every excuse in the book not to go'. Or maybe it's the standards in the house that you live in: you've been brought up with godly parents, and you're trying to rebel and throw off these cords and these bands that you see they are putting upon you. When your parents aren't about, and people you know from the young people's in the church, you avoid the things of God, and in fact you go further: you plan ways that you can get rid of them.

That's the next stage: is that you? Do you know what the next step after that is? United opposition. Heathen indignation, vain imagination - planning ways that you can avoid God and the things of God - then there comes united opposition. It says here in verse 2 that: 'The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD', and all peoples of the nations united themselves against God's rule. Here's the downward spiral and pattern - what is it? One: you get angry with God and the things of God. Two: you plan and you plot to avoid the things of God and get the restraints away from you. And three: then eventually you unite with people who are opposed to Christ and the things of God, and you eventually find yourself agreeing with them.

Here you are, is it not you? I don't know why you're angry against God, I don't know how you're plotting to avoid the things of God, but I'll tell you this: I wonder are you on the next step of actually opposing, opposition united with the world? Are you united? Are you united in a wrong relationship that's pulling you down spiritually? Are you united studying something that is not profitable for your soul? Are you united with some type of entertainment or occupation, or leisure habit - I don't know what it is, but it has driven you into a position where you have found yourself starting to agree with those who are against Christ? That's what happens! Do you know what the step is after that? In fact, I would say that you've qualified if you have heathen indignation, and you have this vain imagination, and this united opposition - do you know it means? You're a gospel rebel! Gospel rebellion! You have become a rebel to the gospel.

Are you united in a wrong relationship that's pulling you down spiritually? Are you united studying something that is not profitable for your soul? Are you united with some type of entertainment or occupation, or leisure habit that has driven you into a position where you have found yourself starting to agree with those who are against Christ?

These kings of the earth and nations were rebellious against all divine influence, and do you know what that is? It is the spirit of the age in which we live, man's age, it has always been from the beginning when the men of Babel built a great tower that they said would reach unto heaven, and they would worship God in their own way, and they would unite together on their own terms - and God said 'No!', and He scattered them into different languages right across the earth into confusion - that's why you've got languages today. It happened in Babylon, we read there of Nebuchadnezzar. He exalted himself against the face of God, and said: 'Look at my great kingdom that I have brought to myself, and that I have built', and God had to teach him a lesson: that the only reason that he was on Babylon's throne and that he was successful as an emperor, was because God had let him. Do you know what God did? He made him like a beast of the field, to crawl on all fours, and he had fur on him like feathers of ravens, and he ate of the grass, and the dew of the morning came upon his flesh, and he was out in the field like a wild beast until he admitted, and lifted his beastly head heavenward, that there was a God in heaven who alone ruleth in the kingdoms of men!

He had the spirit of the age in him, and I'll tell you: when you get to the cross of Calvary and you see all these old worldly sinners judging the Lord Jesus - imagine them standing in judgement! Men like Pilate, men like Herod, men like Caiaphas the high priest - and it's amazing that they're fighting the bit out, the Roman Emperor against the Jews, all the nations of the world against one another ready to slay one another and takeover one another - yet when it comes to opposing God and His Christ they all unite together to crucify the Son of God! It's the spirit of the age! Then, when the church of Jesus Christ was formed, it was no different - and we have in Acts chapter 4 the apostle preaching, and do you know what he preaches on? Psalm 2, and he talks about how the wicked age of man took the holy child Jesus, God's Son, and crucified Him! And Herod, and Pilate, Rome and Judaism, united together to oppose God and His Christ, and nailed Him to a cross!

Oh, this is nothing new, and I'll tell you this: it's happening, you can see it with your own eyes, and the Bible says it will happen in the end times - and I believe very firmly that we are living in the last days. In the last days the Scriptures teach that there will be a full fulfilment of Psalm 2, when the kings of the earth will gather together and unite to fight against God. There will rise up a vast federation of rulers and nations that will unite in one passion: a determination to prevent Christ from taking the reins of government in this earth. Now, my simple personal question to you this night is: which crowd do you belong to? Are you one of the men that could be said there is the characteristics of man's day, and you're angry against God, and you've plotted and planned to avoid the things of God, the salvation of God, and even find yourself uniting with people who are opposed to everything that God is and gives? You find you're rebelling against the Gospel and the word of God: my friend, you're among those who crucified the Lord Jesus Christ Himself! I warn you that you have your innings at the moment, and although you have opposed Him all through your life and gotten away with it, there is a day coming when the tables will be turned and the day will turn to God's day! That will be a day of reckoning, and that's why it's futile for you to run away from God. That's why the Psalmist says: 'Why do the heathen rage?' - why are they doing it? If the Psalmist was here tonight in this pulpit he'd be saying: 'Why do they not get saved? Why do they think they can rebel against God forever, because very soon the tables are turning!'.

Let me share a couple of things with you about God's day and how it's marked. Do you know how it's marked? It's marked the exact opposite of man's day. There's not man's anger against God, this time Psalm 2 tells us there's God's anger against man. It says that God will laugh at these kings in the world and the nations that oppose Him and rage against Him - He will have them in derision! God doesn't worry about the opposition of the nations and this world's establishments. Their noise and threats don't bother Him! Their clenched fists up into His holy face, and their arrogant slogans and boasts are nothing to Him - they're like the squeaks of a mouse to a lion! They mean nothing! He can't even arouse Himself to fight with them, He just laughs at them!

It says that God will laugh at these kings in the world and the nations that oppose Him and rage against Him - He will have them in derision!

I'll tell you, this is the picture of God as He is: God on His throne. And although today He's a God of grace and offers you salvation where you sit in this meeting, there's a day coming when He will have the last laugh. My friend, I heard a sermon preached recently on tape of a man of God from years ago, and do you know what the subject of the preaching was? The title was this: 'The God Sinners Never Want to Meet', the God sinners never want to meet - who is He? He is this God that laughs at our calamity, who says: 'I've called unto you and you did not answer, and now I will laugh at your calamity'. I'll tell you, if God laughs at you friend, you've had it, it's over, you're finished!

Let me give you an illustration of it: John the Baptist was said to be a voice crying in the wilderness, and that simply meant that he was a prophet. He was the voice of God, and one day he stood before King Herod - the same one as the Lord stood before later, before His crucifixion. Because King Herod was living with another man's wife, John the Baptist told him his sin, that he was an adulterer, and Herod threw him into prison. One night it was Herod's birthday, and they were having a great party. The daughter of this woman that he was committing adultery with came before Herod to dance before him, and he was so pleased that he said to her: 'What would you like? What can I give you?'. And it says within the word of God that her mother, before, instructed her: 'Say, 'Give me the head of John the Baptist on a charger'', and she asked for John's head! The voice of God that cried in the wilderness through the prophet was cut off! Herod lived for a little while after that, and then came the day when Jesus, the Son of God, stood before him. And I'll tell you this, listen carefully: there's not a word in this book, not one word, that Jesus Christ spoke to Herod the king - why? Because he'd silenced the voice of God!

My friend, there's a day coming when God will laugh, and if by some diabolical move you have silenced God's voice, you will meet a silent God and He will laugh and mock at your calamity. I don't have time to go into all the judgements that will take place upon this earth when Jesus comes, but I'll tell you it is an awful day of wrath that this world has not seen hitherto neither will ever see. Revelation calls it 'the wrath of the Lamb', but I'll tell you this much: the book of Revelation says that on that day those kings of the earth that raged and protested, and arrogantly vented their anger against God, on that day they will be terrified and run! The kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, will hide themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and say to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb!

There'll be no heathen indignation and vain imaginations and united oppositions and Gospel rebellions on that day! My friend, don't you tell me that you will be any different, for if you're not washed in the blood of the Lamb - just think about it for one moment this evening: what if, as you're listening to the sound of my voice in this building this evening, you heard the trumpet sound, and that beautiful resplendent light that will transcend and be like an aura around the Judge of God, Jesus Christ, coming into the world, came through that window this moment? Would there be one here without Christ that wouldn't tremble and go to pieces and buckle underneath the guilt of your sin? Don't tell me you wouldn't!

That verse terrifies me...people will wail! I can't wait to see the Lord, can you? Some people will wail on that day because they don't want to see Him, because they're not ready for Him!

Can you doubt that there would be many in this congregation who would be distracted with guilty fear and remorse? Do you not think that all the sinners who had ever rejected Christ would behave in such a way? Of course they would! There will be holy wrath on that day - and what did Revelation chapter 1 and verse 7 say? That verse terrifies me...people will wail! I can't wait to see the Lord, can you? Some people will wail on that day because they don't want to see Him, because they're not ready for Him. Holy wrath, no longer heathen indignation. There will be accomplished plans, no more vain imaginations - God will have His plans and see them through, His sovereign will will be done. It doesn't matter how many plots and plans will be made by kings and great men, and the ordinary Joe Bloggs, they will come to naught, for He will put His righteous Ruler on the throne. There will be no more united opposition against the Lord and His Christ, but Christ will reign, the Anointed King upon His holy hill! Of His government there will be no end, and He will reign in perfect righteousness. I tell you: at His crucifixion, when He was dying for your sins and mine, Christ was given to the heathen - but Psalm 2 tells us that on that day the heathen will be given to Christ. What about that!

The Lord Jesus Christ, who now sits at the Father's right-hand, there's a day coming when He will enter into the world and He will judge the nations and separate the sheep from the goats - the saved from the unsaved. Revelation says that out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God, and He will rule with a rod of iron and He will dash the potters vessel in pieces! Then the books will be opened, the works will be declared, and the judgement will be executed. Then rebels will be broken and bowed, there'll be no Gospel rebellion, but Philippians says every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess the Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

My friend, in this Psalm that you have looked at, the Spirit of God in the closing verses gives you an invitation appeal to come to your senses and come to Christ now, the wise. He appears to the three parts of your personality: your mind, your heart, and your will. To your mind He says: 'Will you wise up, be instructed, the way that you've been going is not the way to happiness and holiness and heaven'. The wisdom of this world is foolish as with God. In verse 11 He appeals to your heart, and He says: 'Serve the Lord with fear, submit yourself and you will rejoice in God even with trembling'. Then He applies and addresses your will, and He says: 'Kiss the Son, lest He be angry with you. This great Judge, who's coming to judge the world, the One who was crucified for your sins and died for your iniquities and bore all your judgement on the cross at Calvary - He's coming back again, and you should take His hand now as He is the Sovereign of the universe, and bow at His foot, and kiss the nailprint!'.

Submit to Him, David is saying, pay homage and show loving surrender to Him. Yet maybe you're in our gathering tonight, and you've said it all your life and you're saying it this very moment: 'We will not have this Man to reign over us!'. If you're saying that, soon, very soon, as the disciples stood on Bethany's hill and watched the Lord Jesus ascend after His resurrection, and they watched as that resplendent glory and brightness began to disappear as a speck on the horizon in the sky - very soon on that same geographical spot, some men will be gathered, and they will see that speck return again, and the reverse happen as that resplendent brightness begins to appear, and gradually comes out of the sky, and Christ gather as they watch and debate as to what this is - all it is is the fulfilment of the word of Christ: 'As ye have seen Me go, so I will come again in like manner'. To their horror they will wail as they see the shadow of their being change, because the light of Christ eclipses the very light of the sun as He comes to judge the world - and it's too late!

Oh, my friend, today whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved - today, but not on that day...

Oh, my friend, today whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved - today, but not on that day.

'Ye sinners seek His face,
Whose wrath ye cannot bear.
Fly to the shelter of the cross,
And find salvation there'.

Let us pray: I don't know how many times you've heard the Gospel before. I don't know what situation you find yourself in, but I'll tell you this: you don't need to be some theologian, or even a preacher in a pulpit, to realise that things are getting swiftly worse in our land, and it's got to end somewhere. I'm telling you that one day shall end, and Jesus shall reign from shore to shore. But my friend, it is only those who bow the knee in time, bow the knee in the day of grace, bow the knee when the Gospel call is heralded, who will enjoy that day and reign with Christ, and dwell for all eternity in glory. Will you bow the knee? Will you do it voluntarily now? One day you will do it, and be forced to do it - why be forced to do it for someone who loves you so much? Someone who went to Calvary and shed His blood on your behalf, someone who bore your sin, took your sorrow, went through your hell - is it too much to ask to bow the knee before the King of kings, and kiss His nail pierced hand? Will you not take Him as your Saviour tonight? Confess your sins, trust His cross work, take His gift of eternal life. I'll be here after the meeting to speak to anyone who wants some guidance or help, I've got some literature free of charge for anyone who would like it. You can be saved right where you are if you just call on the name of the Lord. If you are saved, do tell us, and let us know so that we can rejoice and help you.

Don't be counting on tomorrow or even tonight, no man knoweth the day or the hour - and the reason for that is that we might be sure today, and be prepared today, 'er Christ should come before this night is even over. Father, we pray that there may not be one in this place gathered who is not in time. Lord, we pray that there would be none that would endure the wrath of God that will be poured out upon this planet. We pray that there'll be none that will lift up their eyes in the lake of fire, being in torment - for Lord, Thou hast given them every opportunity to trust the bleeding Lamb, and we pray that they will hide for refuge tonight from the wrath to come in His riven side, and be saved for time and for eternity to the glory of His name who is worthy, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Reckoning bible

Definition of Reckoning

The verb “to reckon” is a translation of the Greek word λογίζομαι, which transliterates as logizomai. The term has to do with mathematics and accounting, and it describes what a bookkeeper would do when adding up a column of numbers, calculating the sum, and entering the sum into the correct account. In a general sense, therefore, reckoning is thinking that uses sound reasoning and logic to draw conclusions from known facts.

For example, Charles Cranfield gives this definition of the word in his comment on Romans 8:18: “a firm conviction reached by rational thought on the basis of the gospel.”

This understanding of the term’s basic meaning shows why Bible authors use it both of God, who reckons on the basis of a human’s faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and of a human, who reckons on the basis of something God has said or done.

Depending on the context, logizomaihas a range of meanings related to thinking:

to reason, value, esteem, conclude, decide, hold (as in the mind), calculate, count, take into account, regard, deem, consider, credit, and impute.

Theological significance
It is in the sense of placing into one’s accountor creditingor imputingthat the word reckoninghas significant theological importance for understanding God’s gift of salvation by faith. See Bible Verses on Reckoningfor texts that demonstrate primarily these imputational meanings of logizomai. Also see my exposition of Romans 4.

When God sees a person’s faith, an exchange takes place in that person’s account with God. God places the believer’s guilt on Jesus, whose death paid the penalty for the believer’s sin and allowed God to cancel the believer’s debt of guilt. On the basis of these facts, God reckons the believer free of sin’s penalty and mastery. The believer does not end up with a zero balance, however, because God reckons the individual righteous by transferring Jesus’ righteousness to the believer’s account. Jesus earned righteousness from his obedience. (See 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 5:18–19, Colossians 2:13–14.)

Conversely, in response to a person’s unbelief or rebellion, God may reckon guilt to his or her account. For example, Romans 5:13 says, “sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law” (ESV, NRSV has “reckoned,” NASB has “imputed”). The Greek verb here is ἐλλογέω (transliteration ellogeó) and has the same root as logizomai. Like the latter term, ellogeó has to do with the accurate rendering of accounts necessary in bookkeeping. Its meaning here is that God imputes or reckons guilt to people’s accounts only when they violate a God-given law. See my exposition of this verse.

God is the actor in the majority of Bible verses using this term, but believers in turn may reckon themselves to possess what God has reckoned to them. Romans 6:11 is the primary example of reckoning by believers on the basis of God’s imputation to them of blessings resulting from their union with Christ.

Readers can better understand their Bibles by knowing about logizomai and its Hebrew equivalent ḥāšaḇ, which is translated as logizomai in the Septuagint (the Greek OT).

Varieties of translation
Where “reckon” could be used to translate logizomai,most Bible translations instead use “account,” “count,” “impute,” “consider,” or “credit.” Although these words convey important aspects of the Greek word, I would like to see wider use of “reckon” in modern Bible translations.

These varying translations can be seen, for example, in a very significant verse, Genesis 15:6. There we read that Abraham believed in Yahweh “and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.” That is the NASB translation, whereas ESV uses “counted,” NKJ uses “accounted,” and NIV uses “credited.” Sometimes translations even differ within themselves. Where Paul quotes this Genesis verse in Romans 4:3, NASB replaces “reckoned” with “credited,” but then it uses “reckoned” in Paul’s quote of the same verse in Galatians 3:6 and in James’s quote in 2:23.

In these and related passages a uniform use of “reckoned” would help Bible readers, in my opinion, because this English word better conveys the Greek word’s meaning, and it is suitable in more contexts than any other single English word. Knowledgeable Bible readers, upon seeing “reckon,” would more likely realize that they are encountering this important Greek word logizomai.

Reasoning founded on facts
The NAS New Testament Greek Lexiconmakes this observation:

This word deals with reality. If I “logizomai” or reckon that my bank book has $25 in it, it has $25 in it. Otherwise I am deceiving myself. This word refers to facts not suppositions.

This Greek term refers to a type of thinking based on facts, sound reasoning, and logic:

Its root log-, put together, collect, harvest, suggests a regulated perception and an acceptance of given facts. Hence, logizomai means: (a) reckon, credit, rank with, calculate; (b) consider, deliberate, grasp, draw a logical conclusion, decide. Accordingly logismos means: (a) counting, calculation; (b) reflection, argument, thought, plan; (c) the ability to draw a logical conclusion. The concept implies an activity of the reason which, starting with ascertainable facts, draws a conclusion, especially a mathematical one or one appertaining to business, where calculations are essential.

Logizomai is present indicative, middle or passive voice, first-person singular. The aorist (past tense) indicative passive, third-person singular is elogisthē. The noun form is logismos. For additional definitions and other background information on logizomai, you can consult or
