Perfect Justice. The Judge is standing at the door!
The Judge is standing at the door!
Columnist Ray Cohn writes in The New York Times , “I don’t want to know what the law is, I want to know who the judge is.”
How important is a judge? All over the world, we hear of court cases that are mock trials. Defendants are paraded as guilty after being forced to sign confessions—many times to crimes they did not commit. The judges in these cases are part of a system that results in injustice for the people. On the other hand, if the judge is honest and fair, he will fulfil his role so that justice is served and complaints are addressed.
Since God is the most powerful judge in the universe, we must know what He is like to understand His role as judge. What kind of court does He hold? What kind of laws does He uphold? Is His justice fair and impartial?
Today most people ignore God’s role as judge of mankind. They go on with their sin as if no one will ever call them to account. Yet in both the Old and New Testaments, God’s justice is repeatedly presented. Look at a few of the times God acted as judge:
- He sent Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden because of their sin.
- He destroyed the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
- He sent plagues on Egypt for the Pharaoh’s mistreatment of God’s people.
- He struck down Ananias and Sapphira when they lied to the Holy Spirit.
- He inflicted King Herod with deadly worms after he accepted worship as a god.
- He allowed sickness in the Corinthian church for not honoring the Lord’s Supper.
As we grow in our intimacy with God, we will learn how we can be free of the fear of His judgment against sin.
Keep short accounts with God, and always be quick to confess any known sin according to 1 John 1:9. God is not the author of evil and sickness, but if His people disobey Him, He may remove His protective hand, which may allow these things to enter.
2 Timothy 4:8
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Because God is just,
He will always treat me fairly.
Thank You Jesus.
