The Old is the New concealed, and the New is the Old revealed but God hasn't changed. No no! His perfect balance of charity and fairness are seen all through the Bible stories and'll go beyond all prophecies. Be ready.

Q: Why do we see such a tsunami of judgment in the Bible?

A: Cuz clear warnings were given, cuz God is just and patient.. cuz it will be exactly the time for such, cuz it's impossible to over exaggerate Christ's holiness and hatred of sin that wrecks.

Having said all that.. it's also impossible to over exaggerate how wonderful He is or how great Christ's love is for those He has called.  And you can become a real Christian right now.
But what does it really mean--the justice of God?
The Scriptures clearly tells us that God is very just. This means that He is fair and impartial. It also means that He hates the ill-treatment and oppression of people and of nature, which He has created. He hates lying, cheating, and other forms of mistreatment of others. The fact that God is just means that He can and will judge between right and wrong and He will administer justice in accordance with His biblical standards.
", will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?" Luke 18:7
Many times in the Bible God is pictured as a judge. The Bible says that He will one day judge the world. Many of us shy away from the thought of God as a judge because the examples of justice that we see on earth are flawed: some judges are corrupt and, even when their intentions are good, they can make mistakes. However, the fact that God is just assures us that when He acts as a judge, He will administer justice perfectly. His ability to do this involves other aspects or attributes of His holy character, including His ability to discern the truth in every situation and see into the hearts and minds of men, His wisdom, His strength, His authority, and His moral character in establishing what is right and wrong.
"..because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead." Acts 17:31
A God who did not care about the difference between right and wrong and did not judge humans for acting one way or the other would not be an admirable being worthy of our love or trust. The fact that God is just and will judge between right and wrong gives ultimate moral significance to our lives and makes us accountable before Him.
“What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly before your God?” (Micah 6:8. In context also see John 13:34, Luke 6:27-28, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).
God is so patient, He has a timing and really good plan for He is good. And guess what.. He really does want everyone to have an opportunity accept His Son’s sacrifice rather than paying the penalty that justice requires for their sins (see 2 Peter 3:9).
You can receive His free forgiveness. It cost Jesus a whole lot so it wouldn't have to cost you. You can get right with God today.. here and now! Don't put it off. Lost or saved, in or out. No in between. Not to respond is to respond. Not to decide is to decide. Turn aka repent, Put your faith in Christ--the Bible Christ. Do it immediately, and you won't regret responding ever. "..If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9 
Musin' on it all just makes me want to praise God. Thank you for the Cross Lord--thanks for doin' and sayin' all that You did. I praise you today with all I am.

We are more sinful and flawed than most of us probably ever dared to believe about ourselves. But each of us are also far more loved, thought about, and accepted in Christ ..than we ever dared hope for.
The Bible says, "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." John 15:13
