In Spite Of Issues...
“With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” Says the LORD, your Redeemer.
People have imperfections and issues that are offensive to God. Since God is righteous, He has to address these things. However, God is also merciful so that He doesn’t punish us to the degree that we deserve. Equally as important, God is unchanging, meaning that the extent of our sin doesn’t cause God’s mercy to go away. God judged Israel by “hiding His face” for a moment. Yet, God’s eternally unchanging nature preserved Israel as a whole. God’s judgment was permanent for many Jewish individuals, but the integrity of God’s promises to Israel as a whole were unaffected, showing the true greatness of God as Redeemer.
