Blessed are those who keep justice, and he who does righteousness at all times!
Today we celebrate the day the United States of America officially declared independence from England. On July 2, 1776, the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of separation from England and the final revision on the Declaration of Independence was made on July 4, 1776.
While the founders declared man was endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, which include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Francis Bellamy said we are a nation built upon liberty and justice for all.
If these rights are endowed by our Creator, God, then we have to understand what He holds to be justice for all. In the Psalms, it tells us we are blessed if we keep justice, which in the Hebrew means, “judgment, justice, ordinance.” The psalmist goes on to say, “…and he who does righteousness at all times,” which means, “justice, right, righteous acts.”
God has called us to keep justice and act righteously at all times. Our founders declared we are a nation in pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, which are God given rights, and without Bellamy’s liberty and justice for all, we would be a land of lawlessness. Without justice for all, no one will have true liberty and no one will be happy except for the king. That is what the founders of our country wanted to avoid. They wanted liberty and justice for all, so there was no room for a monarchy. Let’s celebrate the godly wisdom of the men who set our nation up as a democracy, with liberty and justice for all!
Without justice, what are kingdoms but great banditries.
