The God Of Justice
We reap what we sow.
Welcome listeners and viewers around the world. As a servant of the Most High, I have a trifold mandate. Number one is to pray and heal the sick. Number two to drive out demons and the last one is to preach the life -saving life -giving gospel of Jesus Christ.
Welcome to today's teaching. Today we speak about the God of Justice. Our Scripture reading comes from the book of Nahum chapter 1 and verse 3 and it says, “The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way In the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet.Hallelujah. You know people forget that apart from the goodness of God, He's also a God of Justice. Apart from the fact that He promises heaven, He also guarantees that there is hell for those who reject His plan of salvation.
It's not that He's forcing you or me to go to hell. It's our choices that will determine how this justice will be meted. God is everything good and He's the epitome of goodness. He has agape love which is perfect love, selfless love that He sent His own Son Jesus Christ to die, to pay the penalty for our sins. But what should our reaction be to this? We should repent, ask the Lord God Almighty to save us from eternal separation from Him. We need to think very carefully.
So He's slow to anger and people, some people mock His slowness to anger saying nothing has happened.I've been doing these bad things and nothing has happened. Generations come and go but my friend remember every extra minute that you're allowed to live in this life is your opportunity to repent and to strive to do the right thing and this scripture says He will not at all acquit the wicked. Hallelujah. But He has a solution that's why he sent Jesus as a propitiation for our sins.
I want you to always remember this. Romans chapter 11 verse 22 which says “Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.” Hallelujah. Don't mess around with the Lord God Almighty. You can't put Him in a box. You think and tell Him what you think he should do. He is God. He's everything good but he can also be everything terrible in a righteous manner.
So consider that He will not acquit those who reject Him but those who accept Him as their Lord and Savior as the one who came on our behalf, Emmanuel, God with us, to die for me. He will give everlasting life and they will not be condemned to the eternal pits of hell.
Romans 8 1 says, “there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ. Who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit”.Hallelujah. Many people just leave it at the first part, which is “there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ, Jesus. And they just say, as long as I have Jesus, that's the end. They do not go to the next part which says, “who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” So I ask you to examine your life. Let me examine mine. Am I walking according to the flesh and bearing the fruits of their flesh? Or am I walking according to the Spirit, bearing the fruits of the Spirit? Remember, God is a God of justice. May the Lord God Almighty be with you and your family. God bless.
