Deacon Rick Bettez. Adjustment to the Justice of God.
Friday, December 30, 2011
God is perfection and perfection demands
a system that reflects the highest quality.
When we are ignorant to the PPOG and the attributes and essence of God and how it operates… we become confused and angry that God seems unfair…
If you do not know about the Angelic Conflict then you cannot hope to really
understand what God had in mind for the earth or more importantly the whole
His perfect justice and His omniscience
work like a championship tag team.
1) The imputation of Adam’s sin to all mankind
2) The imputation of the Believer’s sins to our Lord Jesus Christ
3) The imputation of Christ’s
Righteousness to the Believer
When you begin to question and doubt God, or if you know an Unbeliever who scoffs at God and His plans… It’s the beginning signs of that blind arrogance that Satan has.
ROM 11:33-36 Oh, the depth of the riches
of both wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are His judgments and
unfathomable His ways!
Psa 67 tells us to be thankful and praise the Lord… because He is an upright judge that will judge all the people and nations of the world
All throughout the Bible we see authority and rules of establishment.
2CH 19:7 Now then let the fear of the Lord be upon you; be very careful what you
do, for the Lord our God will no have part in unrighteousness, or partiality, or the taking of a bribe
Exo 25 covers offerings for the Sanctuary and speaks about the Ark of the Covenant the Table of Showbread, the Golden
Exo 26 – Instructions on curtains for the
Exo 28 – details about the garments for the Priests.
Exo 29 – Consecration of the Priests and sacrifices and food for the Priests.
PSA 96:13 He comes to judge the world
with righteousness and justice.
There are a few things God cannot do –
He cannot lie… He cannot go back on His
promises and He cannot ignore His own Divine Nature.
God cannot surpass any of His 3 Divine
Attributes… Sovereignty, Righteousness
Triangle is one of the strongest designs three sold lines all depending on one another… Let’s use Sovereignty as the base.
Now Righteousness is on one side… and it demands perfection, consider it the big hulking bouncer that oversees everything. Justice is on the other side, and for lack of a better definition… its a filter or place that everything that God approves passes through. Simply put when Righteousness rejects sin Justice will condemn it.
Realize God can and will do what is needed to move the plan forward so that the Angelic Conflict or whatever issue needs to be resolved gets resolved.
God’s ability to save fallen man comes
through His Justice.
PSA 9:8 And He will judge the world in
righteousness; He will execute judgment
for the peoples with equity.
HEB 12:6 For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives
Many Believers simply stay at the Sheep Gate; they are born again and saved, going to
heaven… but that’s it!
You notice your spiritual life is on track when you go thru a valley or difficulty and come out the other side…
Maybe God needed to physically and mentally push you until you opened up and allowed Him in to clean out that
garbage… bring it to the Dung Gate and let the Lord take out the trash!
GEN 16:3 And after Abram had lived ten yrs in the land of Canaan, Abram’s wife
Sarai took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, and gave her to her husband Abram
(look who’s wearing the pants) as his wife.
See Abraham wanted Ishmael to be his firstborn and inherit all the blessings, but that
was a plan done in the flesh. A human scheme that backfired as they always do.
HEB 11:1 Faith is the assurance of things
hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
DEU 32:4 “The Rock! His work is perfect,
for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.”
He had to learn God’s timing and human
timing are on two different scales and human power is a false sense of strength and security.
David demonstrated adjusting to the
Justice of God several times.
Jeremiah had to adjust to the Justice of
God… he had 3 generations reject his
1) Salvation is an instant adjustment that
we have believed upon TLJC as our Savior –
a non-meritorious act.
2) Rebound is an instant way to adjust to the justice of God… name and cite your
3) This is not so instant and is a gradual but very obtainable way of adjusting to the Justice of God… grow up in the PPOG, stay
the course become a mature Bel.
