For about 2 years now I have been saying that Gods justice is about restoration not retribution … maybe I am NOT fully correct …

Isaiah 35:4-5
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution

Well there it is … God can and does at times come with VENGEANCE and DIVINE RETRIBUTION.

When we are fearful Divine Retribution and Vengeance is God’s response to us.

But I am cheeky I left off the rest of the verse and the verse that follows…

Isaiah 35:4-5
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
HE WILL COME TO SAVE YOU.”

5 THEN will the eyes of the blind be opened
and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
HE WILL COME TO SAVE YOU.”

Wow!

Divine retribution and vengeance manifests when we are in trouble and full of fear and God turns up and declares war on our fear AND SAVES!

The result of being saved through retribution?

WE GET HEALED AND RESTORED!

Maybe divine RETRIBUTION is about RESTORATION after all and only describes Gods firey passion when he rescues and heals his kids?!

Jesus came to give life

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;..” eph1:7

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” col1:13

“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” heb9:12

“The thief(law i.e. the people before Him) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” john10:10

“And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” john6:40

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” john3:16

“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has he made alive together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” Col2:14

~Jesus says LIVE! believe in Him and you shall live. The prodigal son is so important to me, bcuz Jesus gave such an awesome parable… a parable of the Father and us the children, what makes it better is He threw in there the parable of the lost sheep and the lost coin, and in each the Father was following the burning passion of His heart… God IS One, you can say Jesus is the Fathers heart, Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost! His heart burns for you …. believe the Gospel!

hot, cold, lukewarm. Revelation 3:14-20… some thoughts.

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

~at first thought, and even at multiple x multiple thoughts, this sounds like if you dont do works, Jesus will spit you out of His mouth, causing you to lose salvation. Which is possible! If i am completely wrong about my belief of the Gospel, Salvation, and God, this might be right! extremely right! but since i dont believe like that, let’s see how great i can twist it. Let’s see, in Laodicea there were jews, so okay the very thought of two covenants is automatically brought to mind. So this is what i’m thinking, the Laodiceans might have been in a mix between two covenants and not full in the new making them lukewarm, Jesus said He wishes they were either one or the other, but since that wasnt the case, He was about to spit them out of His mouth. To me this says, ‘i am about to spit you out of my mouth, you will not be my ministers/preachers of my word.” OK, that’s fairly plausible right? I think so. Here’s another one that comes to my mind, i went to google and learned that there were jews in Laodicea, but not only that! they controlled some sort of money flow. Now this is makin sense too(for me atleast). It seem like the Laodiceans might have been so engulfed with their money, instead of Jesus. this is their works it seems, not only so but it seems like they were so engulfed with their money and activities with the money that they became so lukewarm, that they were poor, blind, and naked. All the attributes of an unbeliever. Jesus tells them, whoever hears my Voice and opens the door, i will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. Too me, that is saying, whoever comes to me, i will by no means cast him away. Were the Laodiceans forgetting about Jesus? Or were they, as the common view says, just not working and about to lose the salvation they had to keep by works? I think they were forgetting and abandoning Jesus. It’s like if i win the lottery and decide i dont need Jesus anymore. Or maybe they could have been jews who were in a mix between old covenant and new and not fully in either. The Lord be with you!! No condemnation! Grace through faith, not of works, wins!

Just some thinking, random posts from today :)

Why is faith so important with God?…. check it out, how will intimacy grow stronger, and how is there any greater Love than Love that is blind?… But this is good, we don’t see Him, but we see Him because of faith. And so we grow, not towards anything, but up in Him and our eyes see more and more of His heart! Jesus is Lord, Love is shown in that Christ was crucified for our sins, buried, and raised to Life the 3rd day. ❤ 


You are perfectly righteous, not bcuz of what you do but bcuz of Jesus and Only Jesus. Once you realize this, you realize you’re free to live and enjoy your Father. None the less, we each have our days that feel a little blue. A lot of stuff running thru our minds, many thoughts, yet our heart seems to stay steadfast. So guys, I want to let you know God Loves you and that Jesus Loves you and that the Spirit Loves you. And your not alone when you feel down, I feel down some days and I know this, God multiplies our joy the next. Love and Peace, you have a Father! and The Gospel is power!

 A buddy of mine says agree with God about your evil…. this is so true. Its like doing so is saying OK Lord I am helpless and hopeless, what hope is there in me except you alone. How can I ever meet the standard. Then the mercy and Love of God is flourished upon you and you realize that yeah in the system of good bad you’re an utter failure,……… in God alone is my strength! God alone is my Salvation! My righteousness is of Him! Jesus says “LIVE!!!”

 “For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.” james 1:20
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, [wrath], strife, seditions, heresies,…” gal5:20
~”For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;…”
If you picture the wrath of God like the wrath of men, think about it.. ask the Lord and wait for an answer.. if all you see in the bible is God’s wrath, change your perspective… the wrath of God is not like the wrath of man… the Gospel is the good news and according to paul they were/are revealed simultaneously. You should not be worried, and you should especially not be scared of your Father! Gal5:20’s context is walking according to the law/flesh, so no worries brother/sister.



In Christ dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily… you too have been brought to fulness … guys dont let confusing scriptures bring you down!.. for example many times paul says we are the children of God already bcuz we believe in Jesus!… then we go to 1john and call some of our brothers children of the devil .. but no!… the Father of Jesus, is YOUR Father ~amen ❤
