2021 English Christian Song | "God's Judgment Reveal His Righteousness and Holiness"

595 |June 30, 2021

The words that God’s saying today

are to judge people’s sins and unrighteousness,

and to curse people’s rebelliousness,

and chastise their deceit and their crookedness.

If the things that they say and they do

aren’t in line with His will, He will judge them all.

He’ll condemn their defiance as sin.

This is work that reveals all His holiness.

God is speaking in accord with the principles of judgment.

By cursing man’s rebellion, revealing their ugliness,

and by judging their unrighteousness,

He shows His righteous disposition.

His holiness means that He’s righteous.

God speaks and does work of judging and conquest

in light of your corrupt dispositions.

Only this work that is practical puts God’s holiness into sharp relief.

Because of these judgments, you’ve been able to see it:

God is righteous and holy.

He’s holy and righteous—

that’s why He has judged you and brought His wrath upon you.

He can reveal His righteousness when seeing how mankind rebels,

and He can reveal His holiness when seeing all of mankind’s filthiness.

That’s enough to show that He’s holy God,

who doesn’t have the slightest bit of taint,

that He’s God Himself who is holy,

but who also lives in a land of filth.

If He were a regular man who sullies himself along with others;

if He weren’t righteous or didn’t have any single element of holiness,

He would not be qualified to judge filthy people’s unrighteousness,

nor would He be qualified to be the judge of entire mankind.

How could someone who’s so filthy

judge a person as filthy as they are themselves?

Because of these judgments, you’ve been able to see it:

God is righteous and holy.

He’s holy and righteous—

that’s why He has judged you and brought His wrath upon you.

The only One who has the right to judge man is the holy God.
