Abraham asked God if He would destroy the city if there were fifty righteous people or less. Regardless of the number of righteous, God said he would preserve the city for their sake.
Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” Genesis 18:22-25
It is clear that Abraham questioned God, reminding Him of His righteousness before the righteous. We can also see Abraham reminding God, in other words, about the difference that must exist between the righteous and the wicked, which was promised by Him.
However, I would like to emphasize verse 25 again, where it says:
Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
Each state and country has their own judges. For example, in Brazil, in England, etc. But if a Brazilian judge goes to the United States, he cannot try a case. The same is true if a judge from the United States goes to Africa. He will not have the power to try a case there.
However, this does not apply to God. Abraham said: Should not the Judge of ALL the Earth do right? God is the Judge of ALL the Earth!
I ask: do you think that God loses His power from one state to another, or from one country to another? I’ll give you the answer: No! Because He is the Only Judge of all the Earth.
This is this Judge who will be on the Altar on September 17, and He will not allow you to be destroyed.
This was the same Judge that said:
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand (unrighteous); but it shall not come near you. Psalm 91:7
This is why Abraham had a petulant, daring, brave, and ambitious faith to ask God for the deliverance of the righteous, whether they were fifty, forty, thirty, twenty, or even just one.
Those who live this faith, my friend, my friend, are just!
You cannot be found among the sick, you should not be in an unemployment line, homeless, you should not be known as a troubled person, divorced, you cannot be in a prison line waiting to be searched so you can enter to see your child in jail, among the needy who depend on other people’s charity…
And why can’t you be found in these situations? I repeat: because you are this righteous person that God said He would deliver.
Just as in this passage God said He would not let the righteous be destroyed, I say to you: God, for your sake, will not let you be destroyed among the people who are losing everything in life. He will not let you be destroyed and go to hell with the unbelievers. You belong in heaven. It is not fair that you follow Jesus and go to hell.
Therefore, this Campaign of Justice is for ALL the areas of your life.
And my question is: “Shall not the Judge of ALL the earth do justice?”
He will descend. Where will He descend? On the Altar!
I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know. Genesis 18:21
And when God comes down on the Altar, He has to see that you are doing what is right, and then, He will do justice in your life.
