The Right and the Left Hand
Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Matthew 25:41 - Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
In Mark 10:35-40 James and John request Jesus that they be selected to be seated one on the right hand and the other on the left hand. Had they being mindful of the above scriptures they should have asked for both to be seat on the right hand.
When I was not in the Lord I use to think that right is good and the left is bad.
Is God's right hand light and left hand dark? No.
God is Holy, He is light and He is Spirit. Since God is omnipresent there is no left or right to Him. When we refer to the Hand of God or the Finger of God we are referring to His Spirit. What is referred as right or left of God - refers to the righteousness or unrighteousness. Jesus Christ is seated on the throne of righteousness of God. Every thing that is unrighteous will be destroyed on the Judgment day.
Every thing of you is good if you are in the righteousness of God and everything of you is bad if you have rejected the righteousness of the Lord.
