This message begins by looking at the position of the Wicked/Transgressor. He seems to prosper at first, but tragically essentially has no future. For the believer, there is present evidence of transformation followed by a future of peace
35 I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,
spreading himself like a green laurel tree.[a]
36 But he passed away,[b] and behold, he was no more;
though I sought him, he could not be found.
37 Mark the blameless and behold the upright,
for there is a future for the man of peace.
38 But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;
the future of the wicked shall be cut off.
Psalm 37:35-38 English Standard Version (ESV)
