Pin It Now!

"... I will restore judges as in days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City" Isaiah 1:26

One personification of Christ our Lord is that He is our Judge - a righteous one at that! There are number of Scripture references on that. Let's look at a few:

Apostle Paul writes in his letter to Timothy, "Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:8

King David sings in one of his Psalms, "God is a righteous judge..." Psalm 7:11

We read about the final Judgement Day in Revelation 20:11-15 where Christ Himself is enthroned in the throne judging the dead - great and small. In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus Christ Himself explains the judgement days ahead. There are Scriptures that explain how we believers will be judged and rewarded according to our deeds (Matthew 16:27, Revelation 22:12).

What these Scriptures teach us is that our Lord is the ultimate Judge! If that is the case, will He not take care of our cases here on earth? Often times there are situations where we are wronged and we react defensively OR we pry for a chance to prove ourselves right OR worse yet we take matters into our own hands to try and avenge.

Romans 12:19 says, "Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord."

So, coming back to our discussion this morning, God will restore our judges or in other words bring us justice (Amen!), provided we leave it up to Him.(Shall we?)
