He Is Just

Here is the bottom line. We are all sinful, meaning that we have done things which are wrong. The God of Creation is holy, meaning that He has never done anything wrong. He is just, meaning that He demands justice and part of justice is punishment for doing something wrong. He is merciful, meaning that He wants to help those who have to pay for doing wrong. He is loving, meaning that He loves those who do wrong.

Put all that in a pot and stir and you come up with a problem. Yahwey loves us, but He demands that we pay for our wrong deeds, which we have all done. He loves us and wants to show us mercy, but His holy nature demands that we pay for our sins. The payment is death, which includes separation from Him.

Now if Yahwey was a human, He would probably of just written us off. Just started over with other creatures and make sure these new ones couldn’t do any wrong. But Yahwey is not human, He is Spirit, so He did what we would probably never have thought of. He decided to pay our debt Himself. He decided to send His one and only Son to die for our sins. Because Yahwey is holy and has never sinned, He was able to take all the sins that all the people have committed at one time. He died to pay for our sins.

So now we are back to Yahwey forgiving everyone of everything, but where is the fairness in that? Well, it is not quite that easy. He made it fair by only forgiving those who are willing to believe that He did what He did and those who are willing to admit that they deserved to die in the first place. Unless a person admits that they have done wrong and that they can’t change what they have done and that they need His mercy, there is no forgiveness.

So there we go, a God who is fair, loving, holy, merciful, and just.

Those who do accept His forgiveness, no matter how bad a person they were, if they change and follow Him, will go to heaven and Elohim will never bring up their sin again. We see this principle in Hebrews Chapter 11.

There are those who will accept His gift of eternal life and there are those who will not accept His free gift of eternal life. Some do not want to accept His gift,  just because they feel are basically good all on their own.  But being good does not mean that they have a free ticket to paradise. Eternity does come with a price to get there but it was Yahushua who paid that price, so we have to go through Him to get there and Him alone.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.

It never was about the blood of bulls and goats, it was always about the blood of the Righteous One, His Son Yahushua.
