Justice, Truth & Mercy

Julius King Kwedhi

"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and loving-kindness and truth go before Your face."
(Psalm 89:14 AMP)
The reasons why Mercy and Truth go before God is this; Truth goes before Him in order to uphold justice. And mercy goes before Him in order to appease justice. Because the angry hand of the just God is coming hard at sinners like a train ready to crush the sinner into small pieces of meat, barely able to be recognized by witnesses after the train has done its course.

“The judgement of God is according to truth” (Romans 2:2). The “Truth” and nothing but the “Truth” is the strong pillar of justice. Without truth, justice will be done away with and injustice will rule, bearing the inevitable fruit of corruption. That was our former state, corruption. But now we are redeemed and, of us, the Scripture says, “That He may be the Just and the Justifier of those sanctified by faith.” He justified us, by taking us from corruption, transforming us and making us His just ones; His saint.

The whole world lies in corruption. It lies in corruption because the justice of God is not reigning in their hearts: as in to say that they have no regard to the justice of God. The world cheats, kills, bears false witness, indeed there is no truth in them. And that is where the problem lies; the world is soaked in falsehood.

The Christian poet writes, “Stirred lies of wicked man’s tongue started deceiving you, and automatically planted the seed of deceit in you. And when you became pregnant with falsehood it became impossible for you to conceive the truth” (P4CM Poet).

In His High Priestly prayer, Jesus asked the Father to “Sanctify them by Your Truth. Your Word is Truth” (John 17:17). It is the “Truth” that sets free. Without truth we would continue in blindness and slavery to wickedness, and forever be victims of injustice. Truth, therefore, establishes justice.
