You (Jesus) love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else." Heb 1:9 NLT
The Greek word used for justice or justified is the same Greek word used for righteousness, make righteous. 1343 dikaiosuné
You Were Made a Sinner by Adams Disobedience
Do you think it was just that you were made a sinner without even sinning, made wrong with God by Adams disobedience?
For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners…Rom 5:19a NAS
By being made a Sinner, the Bible is speaking of the fallen Sin nature we inherited from Adam. Like a dog’s nature, by nature, leads them to wag their tail. Our Sin nature, by nature, leads us to commit acts of sin that lead to death.
Adam and Eve are the only ones besides Jesus who did not start with a Sin nature and truly had free choice. They were created in the image of God, without a Sin nature. We were created in the image of God plus Adam, with a Sin nature. Therefore, in the image of the line of fallen Adam.
When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth. Gen 5:3 NAS.
So, do you think it was just that you had no choice, and at birth, you fell prey to Satan’s plan to destroy and kill you? All because you inherited a fallen Sin nature from Adam that leads to acts of sin and ultimately death. A nature that Paul describes in Romans where the word sin is used 48 times and 47 times it is a noun describing our sin nature. Paul talks intimately about his struggle with this Sin nature in Romans 7.
For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good. So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. Rom 7:14-17 NAS
The Enemies Plan is to Destroy Your Life and Kill You
Can you see Satan’s plan for your inheritance of a Sin nature that causes havoc in your life and this world? Can you see his plan for your death?
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10 NAS
Do you think it is just that you inherited death? Because this is what happened. As soon as you were born, your Sin nature wrote death as your future. You did not have a choice. This is why God tells us there is no one who is righteous, right with God by their own efforts, without sin.
as it is written, "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE; Rom 3:10 NAS
Can you see that you were made a Sinner who commits acts of sin that lead to death?
For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, Rom 5:19a NAS
By knowing the character and heart of Jesus from scripture, we also know the exact character and heart of God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
And He (Jesus) is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, Heb 1:3 NAS
Do you think God sees the fact that we were made Sinners, who inherit death, as just?
For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, Rom 5:17 a NAS
Can you see why we cannot fix the problem ourselves? Can you see why just stopping the wrong and doing the right, can never release us from our inherited sin nature? Can you see why you need God's help?
Jesus Came to Freely Save You From Your Inherited Sin Nature that Leads to Death
Can you see that our free justification by God tells us He does not see our inheritance of condemnation and death as just?
Can you see that our free justification by God, is the justice of God being carried out by Jesus who loves justice and hates evil?
and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Rom 3:24 NAS
Can you see how God’s justification of us, making us right with Him without doing righteous works, rights a great injustice, a great evil perpetrated by Satan?
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. Rom 5:9 NAS
God makes us righteous, right with Him without doing righteous works, by the obedience of Christ alone?
For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; 1 Peter 3:18 NAS
even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. Rom 5:19b NASHe made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Cor 5:21 NAS
Our salvation was not cheap, costing God His beloved Son. But can you see why salvation is so easy for us to obtain?
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 NAS
Can you see why it has nothing to do with our obedience and everything to do with our Savior’s righteousness? Can you see why we are called to seek first His righteousness?
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matt 6:33 NAS
Can you see why God qualified us to be an heir of Christ now? We no longer inherit death in Adam. We inherit eternal life in Christ.
giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Col 1:12 NAS
Will Jesus bring God’s final judgment that includes God’s wrath, the next time He comes? Yes, Satan needs to be completely dealt with and everything needs to be made right. But, we can see from Jesus, that God does not desire any sinner to be lost.
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 NAS
We all have the same choice Adam did. We can believe in and trust God or we can choose to not believe God as Adam did. God told Adam he would die if he ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam did not believe God, ate and died. God tells us we will die if we fail to trust Jesus. God even tells us which choice to make.
"I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, Deut 30:19 NAS
Jesus told us clearly.
and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." Mark 1:15 NAS
"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins. John 8:24 NAS
Can you see how to reign in life now?
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God's wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. Rom 5:17 NLT
Let the justice of God be done on your behalf, let Jesus make you righteous and live!
You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel. Heb 12:24 NLT
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. Rom 5:1-2 NAS
Many more New Covenant Bible Studies HERE. Jesus poured out His blood for the New Covenant of grace and truth, replacing the Old Covenant law of Moses. Believers are exclusively under the New Covenant, the last will and testament of Jesus that began after the cross.
And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood. Luke 22:20
