Heaven”s Cry for Justice

As our nation is in a season of reckoning regarding past and current racial injustice, and many cry for justice, we can be encouraged that heaven also cries for justice.  When John the Elder’s vision brought him into heaven, he wrote, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the Word of God and the testimony they had maintained.  They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” (Revelation 6:-10).  This cry for God’s True Justice validates the current and past cries for justice here on earth.  But it also purifies those cries, in that The Lord, holy and true, alone can judge the intentions and actions of all of us, and alone can execute righteous vengeance.  In this season of truth-telling, may we personally and nationally join those souls in heaven in calling upon God to judge and to restore us in His Truth and Holiness.
