Vengeance is Mine Sath the Lord

For so long people have been trying to explain in a clear way how allowing those who are better equipped to handle those issues for which you are not equipped to handle.  This is what your grandparents and parents meant when they said worry about the things you can control and those that you can’t turn them over to God.  Maybe justice will not come when you wish it to or when you call but make no mistake justice will come guaranteed.

Classic example is found in the article titled “2 men plead guilty in 2011 racial beatings in Mississippi” written by Jeff Amy for the Associated Press.  In this article it states “John Louis Blalack enters the federal courthouse in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 for a change-of-plea hearing in relation to a series of 2011 racial beatings that resulted in the death of a Jackson man. Blalack was indicted in 2014 at the end of a long investigation sparked by the June 2011 death of James Craig Anderson who was run over by a pickup truck outside a Jackson motel. © AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis John Louis Blalack enters the federal courthouse in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 for a change-of-plea hearing in relation to a series of 2011 racial beatings that resulted in the death of a Jackson man.  What prosecutors said would be the last two pleas came before U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate in Jackson. John Louis Blalack, 20, of Brandon pleaded guilty to two felony hate crimes charges in an agreement with prosecutors. He faces up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $500,000.  Robert Henry Rice, 21, also of Brandon, pleaded guilty to one felony hate crime charge. He faces up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.  Both were then taken to jail in handcuffs, joining eight others being held awaiting sentencing.  "It has been a mighty, mighty good day," said Barbara Anderson Young, sister of the slain man. "We have been waiting for four years for justice for James Craig Anderson. Today, justice was done for James Craig Anderson."  In a written statement, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said "justice has been served."


You see people, there is a thing that dwells deep within all of us called a soul and every time we go against that thing, a part of us is never the same.  We spend millions of dollars and years trying to get that thing deep within us right again like it was when we were young and carefree but to no avail.  Simply because in order to get that thing deep within us right, we have to do what is right and correct all the wrongs in our lives by making it right.  Scientist and other professionals call it a conscientious; I call it a soul crying out.  This is the thing that God has control over and will fix only when we fix what we know we broke.  This is why it is so much sweeter to not take the law into your own hands but wait and watch as God fixes it.  You can take solace and yes even a little pleasure in watching those who have done you wrong get hoisted upon their own petard.  This ladies and gentlemen is called justice because they are given a choice, either come clear and corrects the wrong while you live in the flesh or face the ultimate judge.  Personally, I would rather face man’s punishment because it is far less damaging than trying to wait and answer to God for it, but then that is just me, that choice like so many others, is all your’s.
