Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 2 - Morning

"“Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong.
When you give testimony in a lawsuit,
do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd,

 and do not show favoritism 
to a poor man in his lawsuit.

- Exodus 23:2-3

The Importance of the Letter of the Law and the Application of the Spirit of the Law    

Justice is based on truth and law, not impartiality. Truth and justice are eternal and cannot be based on popularity or the emotions of the rabbim, or  “crowd.” This simple principle separates a righteous culture from a society spiraling into chaos and judgment. A democracy based on popular opinion instead of established law is like the feet of iron and clay in Daniel’s vision – it cannot stand.

Israel’s judges and its citizens were warned to not follow the crowd, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and, almost surprisingly, not to show favoritism (or, emotional sympathy) to a poor man in a lawsuit simply because he is poor. Wrong is wrong and right is right every time. Right and wrong are independent of the person’s social status whether rich or poor, powerful or servant. (Leviticus 19:15, “Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.”)

Failure of a society to be just and fair in all its rulings is necessary for the well-being of that society. Once the corruption of justice or a partial view towards a particular group, be it poor or rich, sets into a culture, then that culture has lost its solid footing on the foundation of truth and justice. If injustice is not corrected this perversion will twist the culture into chaos and economic ruin.

When the mob, the crowd, or the majority have decided that injustice will be the law of the land, it will take strong leadership to navigate this people back towards the understanding, the desire and the practice of justice. If the leadership is not strong enough, or if the leadership compromises its own commitment to justice, the system will destroy itself. It is a benefit to any society to be just, fair and impartial in its establishment and obedience to law. A society must be under laws that are impartially enforced to succeed. If a society places impartiality and injustice over law there is nothing keeping that society from failing as an institution.

The laws that are written in Exodus are more than a legal code. These laws communicate principles of government and guidelines for personal life and decision making practiced at all levels of life in a community of people who desire to follow after the God of Truth and Reality.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Lower your expectations of earth. This isn't Heaven, so don't expect it to be."
- Max Lucado


Something to Ponder??

There are 300 million Orthodox Christians in the world, mostly in the Middle East, Greece, Eastern Europe and Russia.

These believers stand during the entire service. This is a practice that was begun in the earliest churches because there were no pews or seats.

The practice in Orthodox churches is defended today because prophets stood in Gods' presence as did the angles and the ministering priests and worshippers in the Jewish Temple.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Yadah (Hb) – Confession (Eng) – yadah is the Hebrew verb that means “to confess.” According to
2 Chronicles 6:24-26, the yadah of the people would cause God to forgive their sins. In the older NIV (1984) and in the NAS yadah is translated in this verse (2 Chr.6:24,26) as “confess your name,”  but in the new NIV yadah is translated here as “give praise to your name.” The ESV translates it “acknowledge your name.” In Psalms 106:1 and 107:1 yadah is translated “give thanks to the Lord.” Daniel confessed sins, or yadah, in Daniel 9:4 and 9:20: “I prayed to the Lord my God and confessedconfessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel.”
  The locations of Iconium, Lystra and Derbe that were visited by Paul in Acts 14 have been identified. Excavation in Derbe uncovered the base of a statue made from limestone that is dated at 157 AD and says, "...the council and the people of Claudio-Derbe for Cornelius..."
Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I search for understanding and seek for wisdom?
The Scriptures promise that if I will look for it I will find understanding,
and if search for it I will get knowledge.
I will actively pursue these things.


"If you call out for insight
    and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it
as for silver

    and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand
the fear of the Lord

    and find the knowledge
of God."
- Proverbs 2:3-5
