God will “bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart” and “Everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken”( 1 Corinthians 4:5, Matthew 12:36).
“God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). The Bible says, “God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). Thus, “Keep no record of wrongs” and “leave room for God’s wrath” (1 Peter 4:8, Romans 12:18-19). God will do justice in His way in due course (Psalm 5:3, Matthew 12:36). God’s mighty power is assured “for God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
