Have you ever considered the way in which the Prophets ascribe God’s basis for judgment to his status as the Creator? Isaiah 42:5 is a good example of this. God’s status as Creator is recognized, which develops into the idea that one should only worship him. Then there is a song of praise wherein God promises judgment upon certain people. That judgment is based upon his status as creator.
It brings a unique understanding to the phrase: “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it!!”.
