Casey Anthony…I do not know if she is guilty or not. What I do believe in, is delayed justice…
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 2Th 1:7-9
I do not pretend to fully understand “hell” but I do know this world is the shadow of death. And everlasting punishment is a separation from the love of our Creator and His Christ. Separated to live in a world full of Casey Anthony type situations where justice is never served, where truth never prevails, where love has died, and where the shadow of death has been swallowed up by the reality of it. That world is everlasting destruction.
We cannot escape the resurrection of the dead unto judgment, for the blood of Christ Jesus has secured this for everyone. Therefor, the gospel is declared unto you, that you count yourself dead in Christ and alive to God. That you see your sin paid for by the shedding of Jesus blood on the cross. That you know, you have not gotten away with any sin, but all your sin has been paid for with the blood of your Creator, who took on the very nature of sinful man, yet was without sin. Therefor, being perfect, was able to perfect us. That we might be made into His image, doing away with sin and living in righteousness, thereby fulfilling the law of love…
God is love, and what is love but to live in truth, to live loving your children, to live loving your spouse, to live doing no harm to others, telling no lies, oppressing no one, living in perfect righteousness, without envy, without lust, full of purity, and all of this, by act of your will, not of compulsion or by force, but by your very divine nature gifted to you, a nature which loves and cannot hate.
We shall all be raised from the dead, for the blood of Christ Jesus has purchased each of us a resurrection from the dead unto judgment, where every thought, every motive, shall be tried by the fire of His righteousness. – This will happen on that day when he comes to be honored among all his holy people and admired by all who have believed in him. – 2Th 1:10 This includes all who believe this testimony.
What is the testimony one must believe?
As Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Act 2:38-39
May this testimony, the Good News declared unto you, come to you not only with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit, and with complete certainty. May you welcome God’s word with the kind of joy that the Holy Spirit gives. May you became a model for all believers in the realm of your influence. From you, may the Lord’s word spread out not only through those you know but also to people everywhere who hear about your faith in God. May they tell how you turned away from false gods to serve the real, living God and to wait for his Son to come from heaven. His Son is Jesus, whom he brought back to life. Jesus is the one who rescues us from God’s coming anger. – Taken from 1Th 1:5-10
There was a time I believed it was more just to have an innocent man pay for a crime they did not do as to prevent a guilty man from going free.
I no longer believe that to be justice.
To protect the innocent we must endure false witnesses. Without the testimony of two or three the matter cannot stand. Justice allows one to lie, and with that lie not being found out, be deemed innocent. This is a necessary check in order to maintain the balance of power which helps prevent tyranny from rising.
Now I see Christ has paid for the sins of the whole world. Those who refuse this truth, who continue to seek vengeance, who have no regard for law and order, shall be separated from me on that day, the day the Lord Jesus returns to judge both the living and the dead. In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
This is no way means we should not pursue justice now, through lawful means and the authority established by God. Rather, having the knowledge of this truth, we are able and empowered to ensure justice for all, through the good law our Creator has given to us, as we patiently wait for perfections arrival.
This law of God lays down precepts and principles ensuring liberty and justice for all until He returns to separate those who do not love Him from those who do.
One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you. And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot. Deu 19:15-21
These principles are applicable today. The principle of ensample, such as the giving of eye for eye is still practiced and should be utilized in our day. Not as though everyone falls under this judgment, rather this judgment is used to deter others from falling into judgement.
May the ensamples given to us in scripture lead all, everywhere, to Christ our salvation.
