On the day of judgment, no one will hear pronounced from the throne, “Well said!”
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master'” Mt 25.21.

On the last day, when we all stand before God to give account of our actions while on earth, if we have used lack of time, tiredness, family, or any other excuse for not seeking his face and doing his will, we will feel deep regret and terror, because God will not find time or place for us in his life.
Justice cannot carry the day unless evil and evildoers are overthrown. Hence, the requests of the righteous for God to execute judgment against their enemies. “Wake up for my sake and execute the judgment you have decreed for them!” Psa 7.6c
He who causes God’s people to sin falls under the severest divine judgment. Baasha “encouraged my people Israel to sin; their sins have made me angry” 1 Kgs 16.2.
“For you repay men for what they do” Psa 62.12b. “The psalmist views God’s justice as a demonstration of both his power (see v. 11c) and his loyal love (see v. 12a). When God judges evildoers, he demonstrates loyal love to his people.” —NET Bible
People who “claim to trust the Lord” but continue their injustice and refuse to repent at his warnings of judgment will be completely overthrown, Micah 3.11-12.
