In order for the Supreme Court of Heaven to make a decision for you, you must satisfy the justice of God by operating in the perfect righteousness of God, which is the applicable doctrine for the situation. This means that you must learn Bible doctrine. You must metabolize Bible doctrine. Then you must have the spiritual strength or the integrity to apply that doctrine in the situation. Integrity is the spiritual strength to apply doctrine in a pressure situation.
JOB 8:20Lo, God will not reject a man of integrity, nor will He support the evildoers.
Why is it that God will not reject a man of integrity? Is God a “respecter of persons”? No! However, He is a respecter of His Word and Bible doctrine. The righteous Word satisfies the justice of God and allows the Supreme Court of Heaven to make a decision for you.
PSA 7:8The Lord judges the peoples; vindicate me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
“My righteousness” is not self-righteousness but the righteousness that comes from applying Bible doctrine in your soul; “my integrity” is the spiritual strength to apply the appropriate doctrine to the situation and also the “faith-rest”xi to leave it in the Supreme Court of Heaven. Once you appeal to the Supreme Court of Heaven, you must leave the situation there. If you react to unfair treatment with bitterness, resentment, hatred, antagonism, or any form of arrogance or emotion, then Jesus Christ cannot act on your behalf as the Supreme Court Judge, and He must act against you. By reacting, you get your case thrown out of the Supreme Court, and you are disciplined for your sins of reaction. You simply need to live in the perfect righteousness of the Word of God, or the integrity that it makes available. What is integrity? Integrity is walking in the predesigned plan of God for your life and allowing doctrine to speak to you and guide you in your heart.
PSA 15:2He who walks with integrity, and produces divine righteousness, speaks truth [or doctrine] in his heart.
Doctrine resident in the soul gives the believer the available integrity, and integrity provides the spiritual strength to produce divine good or live in the righteousness of God. This is the preservation from the Supreme Court of Heaven.
PSA 25:21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for Thee.
