God Is Just. So He will always treat you fairly. Yes my brothers and sisters in Christ, they that put their trust in the Lord shall be like Mount Zion which shall not be moved. I called unto the Lord and he heard me even in my darkest night. He will never leave us nor forsake us, but promised to be with His children to the very end. Let us look at the justice of God from the Word of God and see where we fit in.
“I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve” (Jeremiah 17:10).
God is absolutely just in all His judgments. Because of His holy righteousness, He cannot be bribed or corrupted in any way. God cannot be fooled. Because He is all-knowing and ever-present, He has all the facts at His disposal. He knows the circumstances and motives, so His decisions are always based on absolute truth. God is also a perfect judge because when He pronounces judgment, He has the power and Sovereignty to carry out the punishment. “Everything He does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright He is!” (Deuteronomy 32:4).
Justice is a pillar of society, ensuring that the innocent are vindicated and the guilty are punished. But all too often, this standard for justice is compromised for personal gain by corrupt judges and unscrupulous lawyers. It can also be said of the church where for personal gains and friendship some members are branded as out cast sinners and even called “satan”. How often some ministers forget where they got their authority and in many cases do not know how to use it. Too, many people use religion as a cloak to cover their unrighteous practices. I tell you that God will bring those to the light and the last days will be worst than the very first. Consequently, many people mistakenly believe they can manipulate God’s system of justice. They think that God is fooled by their excuses and alibis. Oh, no my brothers and sisters God does not cover our sins by shouts of praise and show of worship. He covers our sins when justice says to cut us down His mercy intercede. It has to be a genuine act of repentance for God to cover us with His blood. Then and only then we can say that Jesus Christ is the Lord.
But because He is a just God, His verdict will always be right. King David said, “The Lord is righteous, and He loves justice” (Psalm 11:7). Of course David a man after God’s own heart can talk of the Justice of God. You remember when Nathan the prophet went to David after he committed adultery with Uriah’s wife. Sin blinded David for a moment and as the king he wanted to meet out justice, until God shown the light on him. Today many ministers look at others without any facts and pass judgement when they have nothing to say or preach. Empty vessels going nowhere but to a wreck. I say today that God will bring you into judgement and His Justice is the final. To those that polish sins and call it the Holy Ghost watch your mouth. No sin will go unpunished before God. Just like when David’s sin was exposed by Nathan the prophet, read David’s confession in Psalm 51.”I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me’ (verse 3) I cannot delve into the whole chapter this morning but I have opened the book for you to taste and see the goodness of the Lord. Cry out like David and talk to God. Don’t let sin bear you down to a place where you cannot see the light. You need to ask God to blot out your transgressions and to purge your every thought and actions. Let God create in you a clean heart and renew your spirit. It is time to take sin out the pulpit and bring back Holiness for without no man see the Lord.
Because God is just, He will always treat you fairly. However, as the holy and righteous Sovereign of the Universe, God cannot ignore any act of sin. God hates sin with a holy passion. The psalmist writes, “You spread out our sins before You-our secret sins-and You see them all … Who can comprehend the power of Your anger? Your wrath is as awesome as the fear You deserve” (Psalm 90:8, 11).
God’s anger over sin should never be underestimated. You need to have a healthy fear of God to help you avoid anything that would violate your relationship with Him. I recall that when sin was rampant like it is in our day God repented that He made man. Are you included? I say to you and the church of God that sin is now under the disguise of the word of God. It is time to STOP the acts of sin and seek repentance before it is to late. God sent His servants to pave the way in this end time to call us back to the paling of His grace. My brothers and sisters the message is real. What will you do with Jesus called the Christ?
God also rewards right behaviour. Although your salvation is secured by faith in Jesus Christ, your good works confirm that you are a child of God and determine the rewards you will receive from Him. We serve a just God, so what you do in this life will matter for eternity. Just remember if you cover up sins now there will be no one to keep the lid on in eternity. You have no help because we will stand before the Just God individually to give an account of our stewardship to Him. The more I acknowledge this I shake and quake, for it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.
“God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad” (Ecclesiastes 12:14). As I close let me remind you.
It is no secret what God can do.
What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.
With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.
Your servant and brother,
