In Mercy

 

Pray and weep
for the oppressor

for those who extort
and despise

for My throne
is established in mercy

truth and justice
always arise.

Jesus establishes His throne in mercy.

“For the extortionist is at an end, devastation ceases. The oppressors are consumed out of the land. In mercy the throne will be established; and One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness. ” Isaiah 16:4,5 NKJV

The Increase

 

I will increase
My Kingdom

and there will be
no end

of the joy
and justice

of which
I intend.

Jesus establishes the increase.

“You have multiplied the nation and increased its joy. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:3,7 NKJV

As White As Snow

 

Come now and let us
reason together
so you learn to do good
and plead for the widow

though your sins are like scarlet
I will forgive you
and they shall be made
just as white as the snow.

Jesus establishes willingness.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together”, says the LORD, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land . . .” Isaiah 1:17,18,19 NKJV

Maintained

 

I’ll maintain your cause
when you’re afflicted
and bring justice
when you’re poor

and you shall dwell
in My presence
and give thanks
forevermore.

A laid down life has a caring and just God.

“I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted and justice for the poor. Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence.” Psalm 140:12,13 NKJV

Awesome Majesty

“He comes from the north as golden splendor;
With God is awesome majesty.
. . .He is excellent in power,

In judgement and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
Therefore men fear Him . . .”   Job 37:22-24

A majestic Holy just God IS a fearsome thing!

Oh Lord, help us remember not to fear those who judge us , are unjust and oppress . .. because we have You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fearsome

Before His splendor
we fall down
and His majesty
reflects and surrounds
as He judges us plainly
justice in His hands
the same palms that were pierced
out of His love for man.
