Vs. 1 Crime Under The Color of Law. Those who were to be writing laws were to be for the good of the people. The court of law are answerable to God. Decisions will be reviewed.
Vs. 2 JUDGMENT: i.e. sentence, lawsuit, causes or pleas. RIGHTS: a verdict. Pronounced judicially. 400 occurrence in the O.T.. A function of the Government. Any aspect of civil or religious government. 200 + cases deal with the act of deciding a case of litigation brought before civil magistrates
In Hebrew scriptures the ultimately authoritative power (sovereignty) is not found in documents by in God: Deuteronomy 1:17; Psalms 72:1,2; 108:19; Proverbs 16:33; Jeremiah 8:7
Justice is primarily an attribute of God: Isaiah 30:18; Genesis 18:25 God loves judgment, righteousness, Psalms 37:28,30.
Vs. 3 An intervention, in order to bring about a great change in the situation. Jeremiah 5:9. God is continually calling the world into account.
“What will you do in that day?” There is a day coming when God will visit and take account of His vineyard. Jeremiah 10:19; Joel 2:11; Nahum 1:2-6. When God comes, its already determined
Vs. 3 WHERE WILL YOU LEAVE YOUR GLORY?” i.e. your soul (200 times) Where will you live your content, that you adored, toiled for, fought fore, lived for, died for? What are you going to leave your stuff? With all you have gathered in life, where will you do with it. You will leave all your glory. If its to the glory of God…. then its another matter.
Where will you go, to whom will you go for help? In the day that God comes? God returns to balance the check book. You fame, your money, will not be of any value to you then.
ONLY WHAT’S DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST.
Vs. 4 Without Christ you will be humbled under the sway of the enemy and you shall be slain in the violence of war you shall be killed.
GOD IS SOVEREIGN IN ALL AFAIRS OF LIFE 10:5-19
All nations are under the hands of God. They operate within the bounds of God, what they are believe they are doing, is actually the doing of God
A Divine movement, by the divine presence, as an outworking of Divine and Eternal Purpose.
