I often hear people say things like, ‘God hates that, and He is looking down from heaven with hot displeasure, just waiting to judge those practicing such things’! As if to say that God were pacing the heavens in a state of discontent, impatiently waiting to judge what He has already judged.
My friends, God is not confused! He dwells in perfect peace, and is at rest with what He has declared to be good. The confusion lay with man in failing to grasp their righteousness before God in Christ. God’s plan of redemption is perfect in that we have all been made perfect in Christ. All we must do is declare it to be so; that we may dwell in His holiness and rest in His peace.
I know these principles are in stark contrast to the apparent depravity of man; but God Himself is perfection, therefore, His plan for creation flawless; so that we must not lean on our own understanding, but rather rest in His glory. That is if indeed we truly believe He is good.
When others break the law, we want justice! When we break the law, we want mercy! What if God possessed these attributes, and was conformed to the ideologies and belief systems of man? Would Jesus still have gone to the cross?
