Justice is very important to God and is the heart of God because if the enemy can destroy justice in a person’s life or a government of a nation then he can crush the hope and faith in the human heart and continue indefinitely every manner of evil.

God’s desire is, Amos 5:24 (NLT2) Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, an endless river of righteous living.  

Justice causes a person to have uncommon boldness and fearlessness.

Where did God’s justice originate and why is it needed?  God chose Abraham as the father of the faithful.

Genesis 12:3 (KJV) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.  

Now if anyone stood in the way of God’s high calling for Abraham they were going to encounter God’s vengeance. The Pharaoh of Egypt and King Abimelech of Gerar both found this out when they took Sarai into their houses to be one of their concubines.

Genesis 12:10-17 (KJV) And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land. 11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: 12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. 13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee. 14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. 15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house. 16 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels. 17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram’s wife.

Genesis 20:1,2,3,7 (KJV) And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah. 3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife. 7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

Abraham and Sarah had been chosen by God to bring forth the Deliverer that would bruise the head of satan and so he attempted to contaminate their gene pool.  They had a divine mission the same as we are on a divine mission for God to establish His Kingdom throughout the earth and prepare for Jesus’ return.  We are divinely positioned to bring to fruition what God had already planned beforehand, and we are divinely protected by God’s anointing, the Holy Spirit, who is with us to execute vengeance upon all our enemies and nothing will escape Him.

Not only did King Abimelech restore Sarah to Abraham but he also compensated them.

Genesis 20:15-16 (NLT2) Then Abimelech said, “Look over my land and choose any place where you would like to live.” 16 And he said to Sarah, “Look, I am giving your ‘brother’ 1,000 pieces of silver in the presence of all these witnesses. This is to compensate you for any wrong I may have done to you. This will settle any claim against me, and your reputation is cleared.”

Now justice has been done.

The Lord will bring judgment upon our adversaries and in so doing He will punish and penalize them for what they have put us through.  He will force them to compensate us for the damages they have caused us.

Hebrews 10:30 (AMP) For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], says the Lord.  

Compensate means the Lord is going to make those who did us wrong pay damages, make them return of an equivalent for anything given, done or suffered, to make amends.  So, whatever is afflicting or humiliating you, whatsoever is against your peace, progress, career, business or family; God is going to command vengeance.
