In this passage of Chapter 7 in 4Ezra, we have an overview or snapshot of judgment day or what is called the Day of the Lord in the Scriptures.  Ezra is told about God taking His seat on the throne much like the books of Daniel and Revelation describe the same scene.  A great divide with torment on one side and rest on the other is shown to the nations who rejected God's commandments and His Words, dispising Him.  He makes the nations look upon Him and understand who they have rejected.  It is a day that God's compassion and patience has ended, and now only judgment remains.  Ezra continues to inform us of the rewards given out to the righteous and the unrighteous.  It is an amazing picture similar to the book of Revelation where we find the Lamb opening the 6th Seal, which starts the Day of the Lord with the sun, moon, stars, and the heavens going dark.  We can only see just how much God's love and compassion for existing humanity is today, but on the Day of the Lord when His wrath is taken upon sinful man, there is no help.  The importance of taking heed now cannot be over stated.
