Biblical Justice

Share

Biblical justice, in its real sense, is always based on truth. Truth and justice go hand in hand. The world has its own definition, mainly made up by people who do not want to take responsibility for their words and actions. Those people want to do or say anything and not suffer the consequences; they try to justify their actions. They twist the truth to fit their definition and for their selfish interests and gains. There are people who make up lies and then present that as though they were true. There are those who are happy when justice is done and is in their favor but they go up in arms and with all sorts of attacks when justice does not favor them.

We should always be aware of our actions and words and keep in mind the fact that everything we do or say has consequences, whether good or bad. We should not allow other people to influence or coerce us into doing or saying something we do not want to or something that is wrong. The consequences always follow. Those people who were coercing us will then deny and go on with their life as if nothing happened and we are left to carry the cross. 

We should be our own person. We are to obey God and put Him first in our lives. Yes we follow the law of the land. But other than that we do not owe other people ‘favors’. We should not accept anything from anyone meant to lure us into doing or saying something; whether their ‘gift’ is monetary or other things. People usually expect something in return. Very few people love just to love. Most people always expect something when they do something for you. Some will even give you something you never asked for yet expect something else in return. That makes you a slave to them. They will start using everything against you. They will tell you that you owe them. They will start trying to control you. It is never worth it.

That is why the Bible tells us to owe others nothing except to love them. Love is the fulfillment of the law.   

The Bible says that we reap what we sow; that is what judgment is based on. It is based on the fact that somebody did or said something that resulted in certain consequences. We know God is just and He wants no one to perish. We are given free will to choose but advised to choose the narrow path that leads to salvation. Our choices determine the outcome. We cannot do bad and expect to reap good.

By the world’s standards, people corrupt their way. They do bad things and then lie and manipulate their way. Innocent people end up suffering the actions of the wrongdoers. There are people who have mastered lies, manipulation, moving the crowd, the art of shifting blame, posing as innocent yet they know they are guilty. People rarely accept their faults, people do not take responsibility. They will happily watch another person suffer the consequences of their actions. That is how corrupted and evil the world is.

When many people talk, they just say anything. Lies are spoken as if that is the truth. People have become abusive, love has grown cold, people attack each other whether verbally, physically, and through other means. It seems like everyone is looking out for themselves. It is survival for the fittest no matter the cost.

Thank God we serve a just God. He will bring into judgement the righteous and the wicked, everyone will be judged accordingly. God says vengeance belongs to Him, He will repay. Everything will be brought to light. Everything hidden will be brought to the surface. God loves justice and does not forsake the faithful ones. The wicked will suffer and they bring a curse upon their generations to follow.

God requires us to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him. God will bring justice for His chosen ones, who cry to Him day and night. We should learn to do right and to defend the oppressed. God loves righteousness and justice. He told the Israelites to follow justice and justice alone so that they would live and possess the land that God was giving them.  

We should strive to be just and seek justice. We are to speak the truth in love. Only the truth sets people free.

Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor, or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. Leviticus 19:15.

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to the evildoers. Proverbs 21:15.

Blessings.
