Proverbs 29: The Real Supreme Court

"He shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more"

One of the many differences between God's eternal and universal Law and man's conflicting and contradicting laws (apart from humans increasingly making laws that are direct rebellions against God's Law; see Iniquity In History And Prophecy) is that man's law, in many places, proudly proclaims itself to be blind - as a supposed symbol of impartiality.

But human-nature, that is, what has become human nature after the fall of man, is not impartial. Judges don't do things that will jeopardize their re-election or their political office by the politicians that appointed them. Juries of one's "peers" very-often let "their own" literally get away with murder. Malignant-minded nations "legally" invade and oppress other nations by concocting their own laws to make their war crimes "legal" e.g. Adolf Hitler passed laws that made the holocaust and his starting of the Second World War "legal" (see Law-Abiding Criminals and Why Does Satan Love Liars?). True justice is rare in Satan's world.

The LORD's Law however is not blind and it is truly impartial - physically and spiritually. God can't be bought. The LORD isn't pandering for anyone's vote or political approval by the majority of humanity who have become corrupt in His sight. God doesn't have personal grudges or arrogant bigotry. God isn't interested in human national politics (see The Patriotism Prophecy). That's a very good thing for those who truly seek to obey God's Law; it's not a good thing for those whose day of reckoning is coming.

The Holy Scriptures

"44:21 Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart." (Psalm 44:21 KJV)

"8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad." (Luke 8:17 KJV)

"3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons." (Colossians 3:24 KJV)

The Messiah's return (see The Feast Of Trumpets: The First Christian Salvation Day) will mark the beginning of the restoration of true Justice in the world. Notice that the LORD (see The LORD God Our Saviour) is all-powerful; He won't need anyone's permission, political, military or religious, because He is "Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war."

"19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen [see Linen In History And Prophecy], white and clean." (Revelation 19:11-14 KJV)

Throughout the next 1,000 years, those of the later calling on the Earth will come to joyously learn the Way of the LORD - to which everyone will be completely free to choose eternal life, by repenting and obeying the Law of the LORD, or eternal death, by refusing to repent.

"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4:3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

4:4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it." (Micah 4:1-4 KJV)

Then, at the end of the 1,000 years, the final Judgment.

"20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:11-15 KJV)

The Holy Bible is consistent from beginning to end. Notice how often, in the Proverbs as well, that the time and the basis of Judgment is stated e.g. "Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD" and "The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever."

Earth

"29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

29:3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

29:4 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.

29:6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

29:7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

29:8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.

29:9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

29:10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.

29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

29:12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

29:13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lighteneth both their eyes.

29:14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.

29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.

29:17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

29:19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.

29:20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

29:21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.

29:22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.

29:23 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

29:24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.

29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

29:26 Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.

29:27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked." (Proverbs 29:1-27 KJV)
