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.
"44:21 Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart." (Psalm 44:21 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.
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.
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."
"29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
Fact Finder: What does "mercy" mean in matters of the LORD's Judgment?
