Vengeance is Not for Man


Knowledge that the Lord is the righteous judge relieves the pressure we feel to get revenge, get even or take unjust action in an attempt to pay people back for their offenses.

Examples of believers looking to God to avenge the wrongs done to them, instead of striking back themselves can be found in these verses:
Psalm 25:3
Psalm 27:14
Psalm 37:34
Psalm 39:7-8
Psalm 62:5-6
Matthew 5:38-48
Luke 18:7-8
1 Peter 2:23
1 Peter 4:19

Vengeance belongs to the Lord, not to the one who suffered the wrong according to these verses:
Deuteronomy 32:35
Deuteronomy 32:43
2 Samuel 3:39
Romans 12:17-21 -
"Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone."

1 Thessalonians 5:15 -
"Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else."

Hebrews 10:30 -
"For we know him who said, 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' and again, 'The Lord will judge his people.' ”

A man who strikes back in revenge will not be able to even-the-score with perfect justice. Man cannot act with an omniscient view. A man seeking revenge may instead set himself up to be struck by God’s judgment himself since a man’s revenge may include unjust opinions, jealousy or prejudice.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Faith will lead you. Experience will teach you. Scripture will train you."
- Clement of Alexandria,
195 AD
Something to Ponder??

Nestorianism was a Christological heresy from 400-550 AD. The Logos is said to have indwelt the human man Jesus, which made Jesus a God-bearing man. In this view Jesus had two distinct natures that were completely separate. Jesus was God and Jesus was man, but as two separate persons. There are still Nestorian churches
in Iran and Iraq.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Hegoumenos (Gr) – leader (Eng) – the Greek word hegoumenos comes from the Greek
word hegeomai which means “leader”, “guide,” and “commander.” Hegoumenos is used in
Acts 7:10
to identify Joseph when he was the vizier of Egypt. Mathew quotes Micah 5:2 in Matthew 2:6 and identifies the Messiah as the “hegoumenos who will shepherd my sheep.”

In the first century hegoumenos is used in the papyri to identify the person in charge of certain area of expertise such as:
- Hegoumenos of the weavers
- Hegoumenos of the town assembly
- Hegoumenos of a religious body.


Leen Ritmeyer has possibly identified the location of the temple, the Most Holy Place and the place in the bedrock on Mount Moriah where the Ark of the Covenant was set. The foundation bedrock that protrudes out of Mount Moriah that is today under the Dome of the Rock has been examined by Leen Ritmeyer. Ritmeyer’s research has made four conclusions:

#4 of 4) Exactly in the center of this 20 cubit by 20 cubit area (with foundation markings preserved for the south, the north and the west walls) of the Holy of Holies, Ritmeyer identified a rectangular depression in the center of this 20x20 cubit area. If this area was the Holy of Holies then the Ark of the Covenant would have set in the center of this area. Ritmeyer found a leveled rectangular depression that was 2.25 feet x 3.75 feet (1.5 cubits x 2.5 cubits). Exodus 25:10 describes the Ark of the Covenant as being 1.5 cubits x 2.5 cubits.

1 Kings 6:19-21 says Solomon placed this Ark in the Holy of Holies in a place he had prepared for the Ark. In 1 Kings 8:6-8 and 6:20-21 the text says,

“There I have set (sim in Hebrew) a place for the Ark of the Covenant.”

The Hebrew word sim translated “set” also means “put a place” or “made a place.” In other words, Solomon had a level 1.5x2.5 cubit rectangular spot or place made in the bedrock of Mount Moriah which was surrounded by the walls of the Holy of Holies cut in the bedrock to set the Ark on a level spot so it would be setting stable. This spot is visible today.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
I will not strike back, but will give room for God to judge.
The Lord will always even-the-score in his perfect justice.
  "I (wisdom) walk in the way
of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their
treasuries full."
