Law as Eschatology

Eschatology means justice, and it means that justice must be our endpoint in history as well as our end time triumph. Eschatology is inseparable from law. The antinomians have surrendered justice as an end point in history. They deny righteousness as a valid goal for man in time. But Amos says in Amos 5:24 “Let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.” And Isaiah 29:6 says “when Thy judgments are in the earth the inhabits of the world will learn righteousness.” We have an obligation to learn righteousness, justice.
