Jesus is God and stands supreme among the angelic realm, who are the sons of God, or gods.
However, on earth, there are wicked judges. These people are made out to be like unto gods because of their stature on earth. However, because they had no desire to help the poor and needy, but to assist those who are wicked they fell. Greed had set in their hearts, which caused them to judge unrighteously. David wrote, “God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” (Psalm 82:1-4) There are wicked judges in our society now who are also raised up to be like gods, while sending the innocent to prison, which is sad. Prosecutors can be very corrupt also and cause the innocent to be punished.
Many earthly judges are raised up on a huge pedestal, but because they walk in darkness nobody will remember them when they die. In death, they will be like any other person and be forgotten. People may raise themselves up to be something, but their pride will be their downfall in the end. Not doing God’s will means being struck down sooner or later. That is why God steps in and judges people righteously when people can’t. David concluded and said, “they know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.” (Psalm 82:5-8) Although people who don’t deserve it are often punished. Those who judge wrongfully will be punished also, along with the person who is guilty. Amen.
Let us pray:
God, there isn’t anyone I can trust that will always judge me righteously but You. I know of nobody who has judged with righteous judgment each time like You. When it comes to me and my crimes, You have dealt with it uniquely, knowing I have broken Your laws. Have I been punished? Yes. if I don’t repent and get right with You, Your wrath is upon me and I can feel it. But thank You for Your mercy and grace. One thing amazing about You, Lord, is that You never give up on people, especially me. I was very wicked, but in the middle of my struggles I turned to You in all my confessions and You heard my cries. I was in tears when Your presence swooped in and gave me peace that is beyond understanding. The innocent are never put in prison, only the wicked. There are second chances in this life with You, but not in the next. Thank You for being our judge. I believe in You, Jesus. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
