(Thomas Boston, "Human Nature in its Fourfold State")
"After this I heard something like the loud voice of a vast multitude in heaven, shouting: Hallelujah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our God, because His judgments are true and righteous! And again they shouted: Hallelujah! For the smoke of her torment goes up for ever and ever!" Revelation 19:1-3
None were so compassionate as the saints when on earth, during the time of God's patience—but now time is at an end. Their compassion for the ungodly is swallowed in joy in the Mediator's glory, and His executing just judgment, by which His enemies are made His footstool.
Though, when on earth, the righteous wept in secret places for their lost friends and family, because they would not hear—yet "The righteous will rejoice when he sees the retribution; he will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked." Psalm 58:10
No pity shall then be shown to the lost, even from their nearest relations.
The godly wife shall applaud the justice of the Judge, in the condemnation of her ungodly husband!
The godly husband shall say Amen! to the condemnation of her who lay in his bosom.
The godly parents shall say Hallelujah! at the passing of the sentence against their ungodly child.
And the godly child shall, from the bottom of his heart, approve the condemnation of his wicked parents—the father who begat him, and the mother who bore him.
"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!" Revelation 19:6
