Do you think there is real justice on Earth ?
Do you understand what is meant by "justice" ? When you are unjustly treated, can you feel it ?
Let us throw aside those man-made "laws and statutes and regulations" temporarily. When someone suffers injustice, do you have in your mind a just solution to that? You may not be able to enforce that solution, but do you know what the "just" solution should be ?
Many people know justice, but they simply do not see justice done, and so they are very upsetted.
Very often, we have the feeling of Asaph in [Psalm 73]
Asaph : Truly GOD is good to the upright, to those who are pure in heart. But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For they have no pangs; their bodies are sound and sleek. They are not in trouble as other men are; they are not stricken like other men. Therefore pride is their necklace; violence covers them as a garment. Their eyes swell out with fatness, their hearts overflow with follies. They scoff and speak with malice; loftily they threaten oppression. They set their mouths against the heavens, and their tongue struts through the earth. Therefore the people turn and praise them; and find no fault in them. And they say, "How can GOD know? Is there knowledge in the Most High?" Behold, these are the wicked; always at ease, they increase in riches. All in vain have I kept my heart clean and washed my hands in innocence. For all the day long I have been stricken, and chastened every morning.... " [Psalms 73]
Now spend a little time to study LORD's Laws,
LAW OF LORD AND HIS COMMANDMENTS
Can you feel the justice in it ?
Do justice simply exists in your heart ? and not in reality ?
No, since you know justice, and you understand justice, (though you do not see justice done), that means justice really exists in this universe.
Because LORD and His angels are invisible, and when they enforce justice, you do not see it. So most people know justice, but think justice will not be done. Very often, they resort to their own methods.
Since you know justice, justice really exists. LORD is TRUTH, and LORD will see justice done.
Jesus : "Make friends quickly with your accuser, while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison; TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, YOU WILL NEVER GET OUT TILL YOU HAVE PAID THE LAST PENNY. [Matthew 5:25-26]
Jesus said that even the last penny will be settled. Justice if not settled in this life, will be settled in the after-life, in paradise for compensation, in hell for punishment.
Therefore put your trust in LORD, keep His Laws, and He will bless you. Never take vengeance with your hand.
If there is no justice, you won't feel it. But as you feel and understand it, perfect justice must exist in the world.
Also, fear the LORD, and keep His Laws. Do not wait until the day when justice is done onto you, when you encounter mishaps, when you become sick, ....
