THE JUSTICE OF GOD
-Exodus 22:5 states, … If a man shall cause a field or a vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall
feed in another man’s field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, SHALL HE MAKE RESTITUTION
-Let us consider this portion of the Old Covenant, taking into account the spiritual implications of this law, and how
that it applies to God and His dealings with the creation in our day and age, and for all of time for that matter.
-Jesus told us in Matthew 13:38, … that THE FIELD IS THE WORLD … This would obviously represent the entire
human race. Remember … GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD ( ALL )! We are told in Genesis 3:1, … that the serpent was more
subtle than any BEAST OF THE FIELD, WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE … Revelation 20:2 states, … that the SERPENT IS
THE DEVIL ( SATAN ) … So it would have to be said that God created Satan ( the spirit that now works in the children
of disobedience ). So … What is being said here? Let us put all these thoughts together.
-GOD put HIS BEAST ( THE SERPENT, SATAN ) in the FIELD ( THE GARDEN OF EDEN, WHICH GARDEN WE ARE, THE WORLD ), and he (
THE BEAST ) devoured, and did eat the life of Adam ( the human race ). SO … GOD WAS RESPONSIBLE TO SEND THE BEST ( JESUS
CHRIST ) OF HIS FIELD TO MAKE RESTITUTION! DO YOU SEE IT??? DO YOU UNDERSTAND???
-God was responsible for the fall of Adam ( subjecting the creation to vanity, NOT WILLINGLY)! This was the purpose of
the ages. It was all, and is all a SCHOOLMASTER to bring us to CHRIST! If Adam would have never fallen ( sinned, transgressed
), THEN JESUS WOULD HAVE NEVER COME. If Jesus would have never come, then we would have never KNOWN the Father, for Jesus
said, … If you have seen Me, then you have seen the Father … Jesus was the most perfect revelation of the Father.
He was God manifested in the flesh!
According to A. P. Adams:
-So … Here is the point: "THE JUSTICE OF GOD IS NOT AGAINST THE SINNER, DEMANDING HIS CONDEMNATION,
BUT FOR HIM, INSURING HIS SALVATION!" ( The Atonement, A. P. Adams )
-The word "justice" means: the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness, the quality of
being true or correct. So … In order for God to be JUST, RIGHTEOUS, RIGHT, TRUE, AND CORRECT, HE WAS RESPONSIBLE TO
SEND HIS BEST ( JESUS CHRIST ) TO MAKE RESTITUTION!
-Because He ( God ):
1. PUT HIS BEAST ( SATAN ) IN THE FIELD ( THE WORLD ) …
2. PUT MAN INTO DESTRUCTION ( PSALM 90:1-3 ) …
3. SUBJECTED THE CREATION TO VANITY, NOT WILLINGLY ( ROMANS 8:20 ) …
-What a restitution it will be! There shall be a restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His
Holy Prophets since the world began ( Acts 3:21 ) ...
-JUSTICE AND RESTITUTION FOR ALL!-
