God Is JustBy Vince Finnegan on 12/08/2019
Ignorance and wrong teaching are devasting to our understanding of Yahweh.
Exodus 43:6-7 God’s character, His virtues (moral standards), are never compromised, nor are they ever contradictory.
Deuteronomy 10:17; 32:3-4 God is just with no injustice at all.
Psalm 89:13-14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
Psalm 99:1-5 Righteousness, justice, and equitableness originate from the mind of God. Man does not have the ability to determine what is right on his own. Our flawed human nature and the evil in the age that is controlled by Satan impede us.
Romans 11:33-34 Almighty God is the sovereign King overall and has infinite wisdom. He knows the end from the beginning. He also knows what is in the heart of every man and woman. The book of Proverbs says wisdom has always been with God. He has a purpose for the ages which He guarantees will be fulfilled. These are the things that qualify Him to be the only right judge.
Isaiah 55:8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways
Deuteronomy 13:1-18 Decisive seemingly harsh punishment
2 Kings 21:1-18 Manasseh received God’s mercy and forgiveness. Often we see two very similar incidents handled in opposite ways.
Romans 9:14, 20, 21 Man should not be so foolish as to question God’s judgment; rather we are instructed to praise Him for His judgments.
Deuteronomy 10:17-21; 16:19-20 God is holy; be you holy. God is just; be you just. Be like God. Jesus teaches us not to be concerned with others dealing justly with us. Do not be concerned about receiving justice. Be concerned about being just.
Deuteronomy 19:14-21 God is the author and administrator of proportionate retribution and compensation (a just punishment and restitution for wrong deeds). The principle was not to sanction revenge but to prevent the excess of evil and crime. Every society has to have these laws, or something similar, in order to survive because of the evil nature of man and Satan’s influence upon this age.
Matthew 5:38-42 In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus instructs us to surrender our personal and legal rights so as to live peacefully.
Isaiah 11:1ff When Jesus returns and rules the world, then justice will prevail.
