THE JUSTICE OF GOD


*Justice is part of His character—Deuteronomy 32: He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. [Isaiah 45:21]—21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

THE JUSTICE OF GOD IS DECLARED TO BE:

*plenteous—Job 37:23 As for the Almighty, we cannot find Him;

He is excellent in power,
In judgment and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.

*incomparable—Job 4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,


“If we dare to converse with you, will you be impatient [or offended]?
But who can restrain himself from speaking?

“Behold, you have admonished and instructed many,
And you have strengthened weak hands.

*incorruptible—Deuteronmy 10:17 For the Lord your [a]God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, the awesome God who does not show[b]partiality nor take a bribe.

Jer.32:19 great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:

*Unfailing is God’s justice—Zephaniah 3:The just Lord is in the midst thereof;
he will not do iniquity:
every morning doth he bring his judgment to light,
he faileth not;
but the unjust knoweth no shame.
