God's Righteous Judgment

Today we will take a look at Psalm 9:7-10

But the LORD abides forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,
And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.

For too long God's people have been under the misconception that the throne of God is for judgment (partly right/partly wrong). His throne of judgment is described "righteous". But the last part of this section is reason to celebrate His righteous judgment.

You see, He doesn't say that the throne of righteous judgment is "against" His people? NO, He states otherwise; the throne is "for" His people

God's purpose of judgment is to bring everything back into "equity". The righteous judgment is solely designed and targeted toward Satan and his emissaries.

Equity requires that a price be paid by the one who has caused all of the misery and ugliness brought into God's beautiful, peaceful world. Equity will not be met until the putrid results of satan's works in the lives of God's people is paid for!

Marriages, families, relationships, church leaders, fathers, mothers and all of the rest of God's perfect design has been debased due to an enemy so vile and so wicked. This is the target of God's righteous judgment.

The psalm goes on to make the case that God is so much for us that:

The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble;
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Shout to the Lord! His goodness toward us is absolutely worth shouting about!

Rejoice in His righteous judgment. The enemy's time is near!
