The Doctrine of adjustment to the justice of God. Part.2.
Sunday, February 24, 2002
Hagar adjusted herself to the justice of God by being obedient and going back to Sarai and submitting herself to Sarais authority.
The doctrine of adjusting to the justice of God.
Divine grace is only administered through divine justice, not divine love.
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.
Gods justice must be free to give blessing to sinful man without violating His divine integrity.
God created man perfect and everything God provided for man came from the love of God.
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.
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.
The same justice that condemned man in the garden is the same justice that solved mans problem with sin.
After God solved the sin problem and gave man perfect righteousness as a gift, He put man under the principle of blessing from the justice of God.
The blessings will come from grace and justice, and man would be the beneficiary of something greater than Adam and the woman had in the garden in a perfect environment.
Through the justice of God, we have the righteousness of God, ROM 3:22 “the righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction;”
The love of God couldnt give Adam anything past the day that he ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
JOH 10:28 and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.
Man did not have eternal life; he only had the perpetuation of his life as long as he refrained from eating from that tree.
Love could not give eternal life.
The grace of God which flows through the justice of God makes it possible for us to have something in time greater than Adam and the woman had in the garden.
Adam and the woman, created perfect by God, could die in the perfect environment of the garden of Eden.
You and I who were born in sin, in the imperfect environment of the devils world, will never die if we have believed on TLJC.
JOH 11:26 “Everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die.”
The day the justice of God gave you His righteousness, you have permanence and security in time, permanence and security forever.
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.
The justice of God can do much more even for us in time than the love of God.
Grace working from the justice of God produces more than the love of God did under perfect environment and perfect conditions.
The first is salvation, instant adjustment to the justice of God.
This instant adjustment to the justice of God = we merely believe, and the justice of God is free to give us at least 40 things immediately.
The second instant adjustment occurs every time it is necessary, every time we are out of fellowship, 1JO 1:9.
The third adjustment to the justice of God depends upon your attitude toward doctrine and your subordination to the authority of your right pastor.
Through the daily function of P.M.A. of Bible doctrine, we move to the different stages of spiritual adulthood, all the way to the maturity barrier.
There is no solution in life for the unbeliever or the believer other than the divine solution.
ROM 3:24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
1JO 1:9 “If we acknowledge our sins, He is faithful and just, with the result that He forgives us our sins and purifies us from all unrighteousness.”
Adjusting to the justice of God is accepting the divine solution, “My grace has been and still is sufficient for you.”
Adjusting to the justice of God = “Most gladly therefore I would rather boast about my weakness that the power of Christ may reside in me.”
Gen 17 - Abraham and Sarah finally did things Gods way; they adjusted to the justice of God and received the divine blessing they sought for.
God gave a command to Abraham to be circumcised; the moment he complied, adjustment to the justice of God, God restored the sexual ability of Abraham and the womb of Sarah.
