“Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.” (Isaiah 42:1-4)
Has justice come to the nations? Has justice been established on earth? Has Justice been brought forth? “When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.” (Proverbs 21:15) America was proud of it’s just laws and systems of justice, but the people became selfish and turned away from truth, mercy and humility. God sent trouble as discipline and our fathers returned to Him, but once again the people rebelled against His just ways and became captive to depravity and witchcraft (drugs). In the midst of this He chose a generation upon which to place His name, “Jesus.” A branch emerged and grew in the strength of God’s word, together with a flowering fruit bud in Israel, foretold in His prophetic word ages ago, but fulfilled in these last days.
The world embraced the enemy’s delusions crafting idols of Man and sacrificing millions to its utopian image. God’s faithfulness protected His children, but the wicked embraced idolatry and demons. “Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.” (1 Corinthians 10:19-20) Today, as in ancient times these pagan’s are mutilating themselves before their idols and giving themselves over to demonic possession. Nothing, particularly evil, is new, but God’s purpose in election stands firm. (Rom. 9:11-16) “What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?” (Romans 9:22-24) Therefore, Israel (and grafted in ecclesia) do not fear “if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.” (2 Peter 2:9) Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
