The Doctrine of adjustment to the justice of God. Part 1.
Sunday, February 17, 2002
Abrahamic covenant = God would make a new race from Abraham called Jews, GEN 12:2.
Abrahamâ€™s name shall be great and to him and to his seed, the Jews, Palestine would be given, GEN 13:14-17.
Abrahamic covenant - whosoever blessed him should be blessed and whosever cursed him should be cursed,GEN 12:3.
A definite correlation exists between the rise and fall of nations and their attitude toward and their treatment of the Jew.
Spain rose, then fell because of its persecution of the Jew during the Inquisition.
The same thing happened with England, France, Assyria, Persia, and Rome.
Germany under Hitlerâ€™s anti-Semitism is a classic example.
Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great, Caesar, England under Cromwell, Germany prior to and during World War I, and the United States under Franklin D. Roosevelt had a kind attitude toward the Jews, and the results are evident.
The principle of anti-Semitism - Encyclopedia Britannica, 14th edition, Volume 13, page 51.
Anti-Semitism reaches its peak when Satan tries to destroy all Jews in the middle of the Tribulation, Rev 12.
JOH 1:11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.
All forms of anti-Semitism are Satanic.
God knew billions and billions of years ago that Abram would adjust to the justice of God, and enter into supergrace and ultra-supergrace, the primary place of divine blessing.
Point 1. Definition and description.
Divine grace is administered through the essence of God.
DEU 32:4 The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and just is He.
HAB 1:13 Your eyes are too pure to approve evil, And You cannot look upon sin.
How can God avoid compromising his perfect righteousness and still have a relationship with us?
The missing link is our adjustment to the justice of God.
a. Man was created a perfect creature by perfect God.
b. After God created man, divine provision for man included everything the love of God could provide.
The righteousness and justice of God was never a point of contact for man until man sinned.
God loved man personally because there was something in man worthy to be loved by God - man possessed absolute righteousness.
PSA 11:7 For the Lord is righteous; He loves righteousness;
Personal love has conditions attached to it, and if man violated those conditions he would have to reap the consequences for doing so.
mowt taamuwt = dying spiritually you shall die physically.
When man sinned, he crossed the line from the point of reference being the love of God to the point of reference being the justice of God.
That condemnation was Adamâ€™s original sin and Adamâ€™s trend, the old sin nature coming into the world and bringing in spiritual death.
REV 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;
The same justice that condemned man in the garden solved manâ€™s problem with sin.
2CO 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
