If I was to ask you. “Can you think of one person in this world, who was wronged in life and who deserves Justice?”, who would you think of? Did you think of Jesus?
The judgment that we deserved was poured out on Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son (John 3:16). Jesus was wrongfully accused, mocked, beaten, bruised, and crucified. He was raised by the power of God (1 Corinthians 6:14) and he ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9), and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2). One day, he will come back again to receive all who believe in Him, so that they can be where he is (John 14:3). And when he comes, he will bring Judgement (aka Justice) and judge the world (John 16:11; Revelation 19:11-21).
Points to ponder:
Jesus – He is coming!
Justice – It is coming!
Are you/I ready to face Jesus, to face Justice?
Revelation 19:11-21 (KJV)
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
John 16:11 (NLT)
11 Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged.
