*Justice is part of His character—Deuteronomy 32: 4 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.
- 2 Chronicles 19:7 : Ge 18:25; Job 8:3
- 2 Chronicles 19:7 : Ex 18:16; Dt 10:17; Job 13:10; 32:21; 34:19
*The justice of God is impartial—2 Chronicles 19:7 (NIV)
7 Now let the fear of the Lord be on you. Judge carefully, for with theLord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.”
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 3:5 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.
