Justice for All
God is not only just, but justice itself. The prophet Jeremiah spoke of the coming king and messiah who would rid Israel of evil shepherds and establish faithful ones: “In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: Yahweh our Righteousness (Jer. 23:6). “Righteousness” and “justice” are same word in both Hebrew and Greek, so doing what God wants is always a justice issue. “For I, the Lord, love justice” (Is. 61:8).
