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?!
