Did O.J. Simpson Do It?
by Wayne Blank
One thing is certain, whoever the murderer is, he has not yet faced justice for that horrible crime. The important word there is yet, because although there were no actual witnesses to the murders who testified at the criminal or civil trials, there is coming another day of judgment when those who saw it all will testify. The murderer, whoever he turns out to be, will then be identified with absolute certainty. There is no escape from justice for anyone.
The Victims Themselves
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, as with everyone else who has died through the ages, are at this moment in a deep, peaceful sleep (see What Happens When You Die?) from which they will one day be resurrected to life. What better human eyewitnesses could there be than the victims themselves?
"Thy dead shall live, their bodies shall rise. O dwellers in the dust, awake and sing for joy!" (Isaiah 26:19 RSV)
God Knows Who Did It
But what if the murderer was wearing a disguise, or a mask of some sort, so that the victims couldn't see who it was? No problem. Masks and disguises don't work with God.
"Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. I tell you, My friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear Him Who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!" (Luke 12:2-5 RSV)
No One Gets Away With Anything
Humans can sometimes seemingly get away with deceiving other humans, at least for a while, but God absolutely cannot be fooled at all. It doesn't work with Him. Sooner or later, everyone gets what's coming to them, for good or bad.
"It is The Lord who judges me. Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before The Lord comes, Who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then every man will receive his commendation from God." (1 Corinthians 4:4-5 RSV)
