Dear Brothers and Sisters in IAUA (ee-ah-oo-ah) our Father,
Greetings on this day of preparation for the weekly Sabbath. I pray this newsletter finds you in good health and happy in the service of IAUA. This is day 27 of month 7 of the year 1988 Anno Crucis of the Biblical Calendar.
On God's Calendar the Biblical month begins on the global day after lunar conjunction. The Biblical year begins with God's New Year's Day (Passover) after the spring equinox (Spring Passover Rule). The Millerite Calendar (Spring New Moon Rule) is the same in the Gregorian 2020 year. The Calculated Rabbinical Calendar is also the same.
I was pondering God's love, justice and mercy. So many people find it difficult to understand and practice these according to the Bible. I recently observed the typical conservative Adventist who can be judgmental because they emphasize justice and are often short of mercy and understanding.
I am reminded of our Savior's words to Nicodemus. These are very instructive because Nicodemus was a religious leader. Our Savior began immediately with the basics of 1st century present truth.
John 3:9-10 (FTCABE)
He moved immediately to advanced elements of 1st century present truth. He emphasized God's love and mercy, because these were the elements currently needing emphasis.
John 3:14-17 (FTCABE)
Our Savior clearly describes the primary difference in who is condemned. It is based on belief.
These verses speak of God's love for everyone. Notice that everyone should have eternal life. However, those who refuse to believe what He teaches and do what He asks us to do have chosen not to believe in Him. They may claim to believe but their actions show the truth. Belief is not just a mental acceptance. Belief is an active practice of all Biblical truth.
Luke 6:46 Why do you call me, "Lord, Lord", and do not do the things I say?
Our Savior was also clear in His last words to His disciples just before He was taken for the crucifixion.
John 14:15 "If you love me, keep my law."
Therefore, judgment comes to the wicked by their own choice. Teachers spend countless hours trying to explain the difference between God's Love, His Justice, and His Mercy. I have come to the conclusion that God's love, justice, and mercy are all the same thing. They are totally identical. Satan's deceptions cause some students of the Bible to be confused by the apparent harshness they see in this text, as an example.
They mistakenly declare it is unjust for God to punish the children for the sins of the fathers. They are unaware that God specifically commanded that the children are not to be punished for the sins of the father. They overlook the distinction that only those who continue to hate Him suffer the results of generational sin. God's mercy is extended to those who love Him and they will be able to escape generational sin.
Deuteronomy 24:16 Fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor shall sons be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sin.
God's love, justice and mercy are identical because they identify those who are too proud to accept God's perfect plan. This shows they do not want to a part of His people. The wicked have shown they will continue harming themselves and others. They will suffer the results of their own choices and be blotted out.
How sad and ignorant it is to think that God could allow the wicked to continue hurting themselves and others with their sin. They refuse to follow God's Law of Love that guarantees everyone is happy without causing any harm to anyone.
God allows sin to continue for a short period of time so that nobody will have any doubt or misunderstanding about the results of sin. Six thousand years of the pain and suffering of sin are nothing compared to our eternal happiness. He still limits the results of sin to protect all His people, wicked and righteous. The wicked see this as acceptance and permission, to their own destruction. God has many promises to the righteous that He is with them and sees them through this short trial.
Trust in IAUShUO and follow His plan.
John 14:6 IAUShUO answered, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The only way to be with the Father is through following me."
Do you understand God's justice and mercy?
I pray we may all continue to seek love, peace, and unity in truth preparing for the soon coming of IAUShUO (ee-ah-oo-shoo-oh) Messiah, the Son of God.
