ONLY ONE JUDGE
Most people would agree, only one person is qualified to judge - 'the Judge
of all the earth!'
That is why He has given us His Word and Spirit.
JUDGEMENT is the discernment of, the dividing
between, good and evil.
That is what King Solomon asked God for, and it pleased God, and God gave it to him.
His first judgment involved a sword!
The sword divided between truth and error, honesty and hypocrisy. (1 Kings 3.)
God has ordained judgment to be made 3 ways:
1. By one's self - which is preferable. 1 Corinthians 11:31, 2 Cor.
2. By another - which in practice is necessary, (Matthew 18:15, 1
Corinthians 5:12-13, 6:5) though not by a hypocrite. (Matthew 7:1-5.)
3. By God directly - which is fearful. (Hebrews 10:30-31)
God has also ordained that it comes:
1. To the 'world' (the unsaved), but especially
2. to the Christian or professing Christian, and
3. to the Church or professing church.
(1 Corinthians 5:12-13, 6:5, 1 Peter 4:17, Heb-10:30.)
A true Christian is one who voluntarily puts him/herself under and accepts God's judgment
by whatever means is necessary.
The true Church is number one place of judgment. (1 Peter 4:17.)
The 'judge not' attitude is an identification of a non-christian or unconverted
'Judge not' means: I don't want the truth.'
That is the position of the world and church today! Shame! at least on the so-called
RESULTS OF NON-JUDGMENT
Refusal to accept judgment leaves only one other option - DAMNATION.
Israel of old was as much a classic example of this as the 'church' today.
Anyone who had and applied the Word of God to Israel was either killed, imprisoned or
They were either called apostate, deceiver,
devil possessed, or mad, including Jesus Himself.
TODAY'S UNJUDGED CHURCH
And just so the attitude of the 'church' today, while their own judgment as
multi-million dollar ministries is, "'We are rich and increased with goods and have
need of nothing; and in Thy name we are prophecying, casting out devils and doing many
wonderful works; and loudly saying 'Lord, Lord ... Jesus is Lord!"' and know not that
you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked, without a gospel which saves from the
flesh, the world and the devil; and Christ is on the outside knocking to get back in with
the message of true faith and love, with the fruits of holiness (freedom from known sin - that
is, up to the light we have).
AND THE RESULTS
The harlot sits enthroned as the bride of Christ!
Mystery ecumenical Babylon masquerades as the New Jerusalem!
The old 'wine-skin' is full of Holy Ghost wine - or at least a spirit'! and 'new cloth' is
added to an unregenerated creature.
Luke-warm love-doctrines, which hybridise hot and cold, flesh and spirit, tares and wheat,
are sown into stony ground, with up to one million immediate responders a time!
The church has in effect become a refuge (refuse dump!) for sin, as opposed to, from
Anyone with the truth is judged as 'judgemental today and lacking
in love, in bondage - and preaching works, not faith' - not false faith,
faith without Abrahamic works.' Anyone who asks for 'the fruits-' is persecuted, beaten,
stoned, and cast out of the vineyard.'
Freedom of the flesh is confused with freedom of the sanctified spirit and flesh, up to
the light one has.
Love is confused with compromise and sentimentality.
A Christ Whose eyes are flames of fire, and sits as a refiner of silver and as fullers
soap, and out of Whose mouth proceeds a sharp two edged sword, and comes to tread the
winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God especially in the 'church' which
has not accepted judgment and repented (Revelation 2:16 etc Malachi 3:2-3), such
a Christ is confused with a false prophet or maybe antichrist! 'We will not have this
man to reign over us!'
And 'the called, chosen and faithful who follow Him' with 'garments clean and white,
unspotted by the world', are daubed, more holy than thou!'
That one's name can be blotted out from the Book of Life has itself been blotted out from
God's Word (Rev.3:5,22:19.) And the comfortable (damnable) heresy or
once saved always saved' has been adopted; in fact, in some places has been extended
to mean 'everyone goes to heaven!'
Has the sword of God's Word gone through your life
today? e.g. John 3:3; Matthew 3:12; 7:13-14,21; Revelation 21:27;
Hebrews 10:26-31; 12:14; Acts 3:19.
