God Deals With Sin in His Own Time
The cry of injustice can never be ignored in heaven. Cain may have thought that the killing of his brother was nothing, but the reality is that the blood of Abel was crying out to heaven for justice! What a lesson every person on earth must know. There is no such thing as injustice that God does not punish in His own time.
God and the injustice of the Amalekites. When the Jews left Egypt, even before they got to Mt. Sinai, they were attacked by the Amalekites (Ex. 17). This was the occasion when the Jews were delivered because of the uplifted hands of Moses appealing to God for His help. At that time, God told Moses to write this in a book so that men would know that God remembered what they had done and that God would utterly destroy them for what they had done. It is likely that most forgot this event, but God’s nature would never let injustice remain unanswered. It was more than 400 years before Saul fulfilled God’s words. God rewards in His own time.
God and the injustice of the Jewish nation. Jesus’ parable in Matthew 21 should be studied and fully understood by students of the Bible. It concerns the vineyard and those husbandmen who refused to give the fruit of the vineyard to the owner of the vineyard. He finally sent his son, thinking that they would not mock, beat or kill him, like they had done to those who first came. The Jews, at first, did not comprehend the parable and that the application concerned God, the prophets and His Son. They unknowingly pronounced their own destiny when they said that the owner of the vineyard would miserably destroy those wicked men. God had been patient with the Jews for 1,500 years as they killed the prophets and even waited forty years after they killed the Son. He then brought the worst tribulation there will ever be, but He did it in His own time.
God and the injustice of America. One cannot read history without seeing the truth that God will turn into hell every nation which forgets Him (Psa. 9:17). We once proclaimed we wanted to be one nation under God, but our sins cry out against us announcing we want to be a nation out from under God! We must remember that He is not mocked and whatever we sow we shall reap (Gal. 6:7). If the sins of Sodom had to be dealt with by God, how much greater our sins of immorality! If the blood of Abel cried out to God for justice, how much more the nearly 50,000,000 aborted American children!
God and the injustice of all mankind. Justice is His nature. Every transgression and disobedience will receive just recompense (Heb. 2:3). The fact that it does not happen immediately means nothing. God deals with it in His own time!
