Due Process

1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

We have all seen the courtroom drama. The lawyer stands with his clients and reminds them, “It isn’t what they know; it is what they can prove.” The zealous advocate has the responsibility to get the client off regardless of the truth. The advocate will use every trick in the book to get the client acquitted or at least to suffer the least of all possible penalties.

In the world people do not want to be judged at all. The issue of due process has rules and regulations. It works in favor of the defendant. The prosecution has to give the defendant evidence of all they have to convict. The defendant has the right to withhold the truth. He has the right not to incriminate himself.

Perhaps this is why some would rather deny there is an all knowing God. Does their denial change who the judge will be on judgment day? When you get hauled into a foreign court you are denied American due process. You are stuck with the judge of that country and his justice.

Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

Given that you will be denied due process before the Lord you better have an advocate with the right plan for acquittal.

1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

For the prosecution, Satan is your accuser.
