Hebrews 10:30 – For we know him that hath said , Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense , saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Hebrews 10:30– We know the God who said, “I alone have the right to take revenge. I will pay back.” God also said, “The Lord will judge his people.”(God’s word translation)
Zechariah 9:12 – Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.
What is it? – Vengeance – is that which proceed out of justice, this not the same as human vengeance that comes out of the sense or feeling of injury or merely feeling of indignation. it is also known as retribution. The vengeance of God is holy and right and free from any element of self gratification or vindictiveness.
Vengeance proceeds out of the heart of God for the love of Justice. The throne of God is established on Justice.
Recompense – to give back in return, compensation, requital, a reward, repay, restore
Why vengeance and recompense – God’s throne is based on justice
- God is the God of Justice and he protects the interest of the oppressed. It comes out of his holiness and love for justice and not out of feeling of hate for anybody.
- To keep evil in check
- Redemption is not complete without restoration and divine provision
Four ways through which God repays us
THROUGH DIVINE IDEAS- Genesis 12 – Abraham was given the idea of leaving his father’s house for him to overcome a barren life. Jacob was given divine idea for animal reproduction to overcome the cheating scam of Laban.
Jesus Christ he only did what he saw God do.
THROUGH DIVINE FAVOUR – Esther had favour with king and a slave girl became the queen.Esther 5:2 Jesus had favour with God and man. Luke 2:52
THROUGH THE WORKS OF OUR HANDS – Genesis 26:12, Isaac kept working his farm in famine and God blessed the works of His hand and he repaid him for all that he suffered in hands of the philistines.
THROUGH THE BLESSING AND PRAYER OF A MAN OF GOD – Who you don’t value, you cannot draw virtue from. If you have no respect or value for you pastor, you cannot really from the grace of God on his life.2Chronicles 20:20.
PRAY UNTIL YOU ARE CLEAR ON WHICH OF THIS WAYS GOD IS GOING TO MOVE THEN POSITION YOURSELF AND START DECLARING IT TO COME TO PASS.
