Will your case be adjudicated on by the judge who is God or by a jury which are men. The choice is yours.
Justice can either be disposed of by a judge or a jury and the system of heaven operates that way. Your matter could be decided either by God directly where you find mercy or by men with a harsh outcome. The different outcomes we see with people who may have gone through the same things is proof of the existence of this invisible law.
David knew this principle when he said to Gad in 2 Samuel 24:14
“14 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the Lord; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.”
One of the most memorable parables in Gospels is the one on the unforgiving servant.
As Jesus narrated it, this servant was forgiven of huge debt he would not even have been able to pay with all he had including his family as part of the debt settlement. As the story goes this same man, later on, finds his fellow servant whom he believed had wronged him and he held unto it. He decided to shut his fellow servant in prison for the debt to be re-paid. This got back to his lord who had initially forgiven him of his debt. The lord got angry and sent the unforgiving servant into a process of re-litigation of all his forgiven debt. He absolved himself off this servant’s case asking that a jury of tormentors exact their pound of flesh upon this ungrateful servant till all his debt is repaid.
The lesson here is God will allow us to be tested immediately after we experience his mercy with a situation that beckons on us to show mercy unto others. Whether the offense is real or perceived kindly let it go. The only people who will profit from your unforgiving attitude which is an attempt to oppress others as you sit as judge over them are the tormentors. You simply let demonic spirits back into your space.
I have always maintained the real problem people have come from the way they treat others.
“12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment”
