BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 577 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“This is what he showed me: behold, the Lord was standing beside a wall built with a plumb line, with a plumb line in his hand.”

Justice and revenge belong to the Lord only. It is designed to bring Light and healing. 

“For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.”

We as man have not got the over view, mind or heart but this is the time when God is calling us up higher and opening eyes and hearts. 

God is right in the midst of those suffering, He is not set apart. 

He is right in the midst of His people monitoring their love charity and response to what they encounter and are exposed to.

“And the Lord said to me, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said, “Behold, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel; I will never again pass by them;”

God’s sovereign Justice is not about us it is about the other always.

“Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honours him.”

He wants justice to flow over all that we may be like Him.

Transformed to look like Jesus. All others shall be our equals as they are equal in His sight.

“Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”

We stain our own robes but also dismember the body and disorder the kingdom life when we partner with man’s and the world’s justice in our ignorance.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.”

We need His instruction and Holiness within us in the form of the Holy Spirit to bring unity and life not division and dis membership. 

We have to be connected with God’s righteousness and plumb line.

This is a time where God is removing numbness in our hearts and our emotions are aligning with His as we weep over injustice.

We feel a guilt where we recognised we have salved our conscience  and settled for giving to charity and letting others act on our behalf and not really lamented with God.

God’s justice will cost us.  It cost Him everything that He holds dear. 

It manifests in the Holy Spirit removing our hardness of heart as we enter into a Leviticus 25 Jubilee type of justice and recognise that God’s ways are best whatever it costs in our endurance to share with the other.

“Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

This will be the dawn when Light becomes visible. 

We hear the angels weep and partner with their lament discarding our self righteousness of doing good deeds but still leaving the other displaced on the street while we return to our comfort. 

The true Plumb line will break the deception and self delusion 

“Give attention to me, my people, and give ear to me, my nation; for a law will go out from me, and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.”

The illustration shows Jesus hung over us and the world as the plumb line.  Light emanating to push back the darkness.
