God is a judge who holds every human being accountable to his law and his justice knows no favorite. Romans 2:11 -13 tells us that, " For God shows no favoritism . All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law ,and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight ,but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous ". This verse of the scripture makes us understand that when it comes to God's judgement, God has no favorites. All are guilty of sin and must repent of sin and be justified by Jesus Christ's blood to receive forgiveness. Since God judges all men without favoritism, ignorance of the law does not excuse anyone from the condemnation the law imposes for sin. 

Faith is the key to receiving God's justice and judgement .Those who have faith will be judged according to God's standard of righteousness and those who do not have faith will be judged according to their own imperfect standard . Without a standard of justice , there would be no way to to make a fair judgement and without faith, it would be difficult to have confidence in God's justice .

God's judgement is just and altogether righteous . There are a lot of perversions of justice in this world and the good news is that justice is going to be done by the one who is perfectly just and perfectly righteous - God. God's judgement in the book of revelation is for the hope and promise that is held out to all of those who have taken hold of Christ by faith .It is important to understand that God's judgement and justice is tempered with mercy and grace. 

 Justice is the reflection of God's character as he is described in the bible as " the righteous judge" ( 2 Timothy 4:8). God's justice is based on his perfect and holy standard and it is administered with fairness .

Justice is not merely a legal concept, but it is also a moral and spiritual one. Psalm 82:3 says, " Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and destitute ". God's justice and judgement is not just about punishment of sin but also redemption, restoration, and his love for us. Judgement without justice will be arbitrary and unfair,and justice without faith would be blind and incomplete. But when we have faith in God's perfect Justice,we can confidently pursue a life of righteousness. Even though we can't make ourselves right, God can work his righteousness and justice in us and through us. Psalm 98:9 says, " For he will bring his justice to the nations, he will bring fairness to the people ". 

Ultimately , judgement, justice and faith all point to one thing -Gods love for us. Even when we fail to live up to his standards. He still loves us and offers us forgiveness and grace. God does not judge us based on our mistakes ,but on our willingness to turn to him in faith. God's judgement and justice does not shame us ,but draws us closer to him. They are not about being legalistic or hard hearted ,but being compassionate and gracious. God justice might not always be immediate . Sometimes,it may take a long time for justice to be served. Faith allows us to trust that God is at work even when we don't see the results right away. 

The theme of judgement, justice and faith are all deeply interwined and essential to our understanding of God and his character. We are called to have faith in God's perfect judgement and justice, even when we don't fully understand it . We can find comfort in knowing that God is fair, impartial and unchanging ,and that he is always working for our good . We should continue to grow our faith and trust in the perfect judge and source of all justice. As we trust in God's justice and judgement ,we must also be careful not to become prideful or judgemental towards others. As we live out our faith, we should always be humble, kind and compassionate ,just as God is towards us because it is through his grace and mercy that we can truly experience his justice and judgement. As we grow in understanding God's justice, judgement and faith ,we find ourselves being  transformed more and more into the image of Christ.
