Abraham once expressed confidence in the fact that God would treat humanity fairly, distinguishing between the righteous and the wicked. He asked: “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Gen. ). The theme of divine justice is common to this book (cf. .   For instance, we might prefer to imagine ourselves as God’s friends rather than his loyal subjects, recalling the remarkable statement that Abraham was “God’s friend” (James , with 2.

The first point of the Christian message is that God is in charge of the world. He is the ruler, the supreme president, the king.

God intervened to ensure his rescue, or he might have slid “right out of the church,” as we might say today. The author never slid into the “righteous over much” mode, as the King James Version phrases it in Ecclesiastesor into “super-righteousness,” as some modern commentators call it.

Solomon warns us that this reaction is. *If the King is Righteous, his Subjects will be Righteous* -- 3. *It is the Social System on which Depends Political and Military Strength* -- 4.

Habakkuk isn’t a well-known (or often read) book of the Bible, but it contains one of the most important lines in church history: “The righteous will live by his faith” (Hab ).

Fight the Good Fight 10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 11 But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.

12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were. When you did find a book on him, it was the revolution on as in Michael Bennetts wonderful book, or Mary Louis Bruce's The Usurper King[go elsewhere], and KB McFarlanes Lancastrian Kings and Lollardy Knights Lectures[well worth it].

I must say, however, that up till now, this is the go to Henry IV s: I have three really. Not to shortchange the others but these have particular personal meaning to me. First the Psalms. I think it isn’t possible to really understand the Psalms until you’ve suffered—and then there is no other part of the Bible tha.

Sword of the Rightful King is a quick, fun read. It's very much in the Malory/T.H. White tradition, rather than anything more innovative. It's not very subtle -- the little mysteries of the story are fairly easy to work out/5().

An unbeliever argues that our language and culture are incomplete without a year-old book—the King James translation of the Bible. Spurned by the Establishment, it really represents a. Matthew Clearly, "a certain king" refers to the Father, and the king's son, the bridegroom, is Jesus Christ ().The bride is God's church (Revelation ), but it is not a primary issue in this parable, nor is the marriage r, the marriage feast is prominent, illustrating the full benefits of God's truth: fellowship with God, excellence, abundance, and happiness.

The subject of the cross addresses God’s righteousness, man’s sinfulness, and Jesus’ substitutionary death which satisfied God’s righteous demands toward our sin and reconciles us to the Father. Certainly other characteristics of God are seen at the cross such as love, mercy, and grace; however, this article will primarily be concerned with His attribute of.
