Good morning! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
This one statement has caused havoc in the world today. This includes churches being apart of the world it is suppose to be separated from by faith in our Lord, God and Savior. He separates us by His gift of Himself that lives inside us who truly believe with His gift of faith He died for us. He died for all and He lives in all people but those that are blind by their darkness are not aware of him living inside them. The mystery of their lost soul being saved by His light has not been solved yet, they are still searching for all the answers and ways that complete them.
Still many are being deceived by the great liar, Satan, without them realizing it and some of the reason they are deceived is because of this one statement he has twisted the meaning to his advantage. Those He has revealed His truth to need to wake up and let His light of truth be known. This is a bible study that will reveal His truth about His judgment becoming ours.
Let us look at our Savior in who he is that is what we are all suppose to do in faith in Him revealing His truth to us. We say he is the only one that can judge us. This statement is true and I hope everyone understands this. He truly is the only one that can judge any man. A natural man cannot judge himself or judge others. Although many think they can judge what is right and what is wrong in them but we have no good in us to be able to judge ourselves or others naturally. This is the truth and if you have truly received our Savior you know in comparison to Him there is nothing in us that can save us.
We all have a sinful nature we were born into which God does not hold us responsible for having, it is a fact he created so we would know the difference from His Holy nature we were created for and sinful nature we were created to denounce in us. But only when we are touched by His presence are these two natures revealed. We have a freewill to choose which nature we want, and he does want all to choose His Holy nature. He does hold us responsible for receiving His Holy nature through His Son and continue having faith in Him creating us with the love he gives us through His one and Holy Spirit.
With this said if you do not know the difference in you from the Holy Spirit of Christ and your sinful nature which is your natural human nature within you, I beg you to go to cross now and receive Him as your Savior, your soul is in great need of Him to live now and for eternity. Call on Him and tell Him to reveal the difference in you so you can beware of His holiness he wants to give you.If you do not know that need of needing he gives us to be saved He has not found you and you have not found Him.
Call to Him now so you can know the difference in your natural love, joy, peace, or the difference in your shame, guilt and condemnation you may not be aware of yourself having until the mystery of yourself is solved and revealed. He is the only person that can solve that mystery in you.
Now if you have received Him He will reveal His judgement to you by the gift of Himself which gives you a new heart to lead your soul. You have accepted His righteous judgment and are willing for Him to change you because he reveals to you he knows what is best for you and you know he knows because of who He is by His presence you have received. His Spirit reveals all things about God to you and you know His judgment is true and right for you so you are willingly for Him to judge any part of you so you can get rid of what is not Him in you and let Him have His right to yourself with a free path to your soul to work in.
You find out quickly He is a jealous God and does not want to share your soul with anyone above Him. He cannot and will not work in you until you are totally His to work in. Depending on how poor you are depends on how rich he will be in you. This is His judgement of yourself you are welcoming and very thankful to Him for it. Any challenge to test your faith in Him you will welcome because His power in you will be revealed through that challenge. So the question now is do you want to be judged by God? Do you want to be instructed by God? Do you want for Him to tell you what is not Him in you? Do you want Him to make a right judgment so you can rightly be related to Him? Do you want Him to tell you how you are to be inside out? Do you want Him to tell you who you are and how you are suppose to live?
Only the wicked or the lost do not want to be judged by God He tells us this many times a man that lacks judgement is a lost soul.
Psalm 1v5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but he way of the wicked will perish.
With this said do you want to be judged by God? Do you care what He thinks of you? Do you care if your life is pleasing to Him? This is God's judgement that comes when the Holy Spirit comes and lives in us, he judges every step we take so we can be instructed correctly and be molded to his image. So yes, I want to be judged by God every minute of everyday so I can please Him and be a better son to Him than I was yesterday. I want to die off what is not Him in me everyday and everyday he will test me and judge my test. Do I have His faith, His nature guiding me and molding me into His image everyday or am I going my own way, choosing what I want to do, making my own god and loving who I want to love the way I want to love them?
Psalm 7v8 let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O Lord according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High. O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the wicked and make the righteous secure.
Of course we know when we accept our Lord and Savior in faith he fulfills all our righteousness through His gift of the Holy Spirit; the true and real person of God living in us is our righteousness, our heart is new and that renews our soul! He renews our wicked nature by giving us His Holy Spirit!
I hope we have decided we do want God's judgment which is the conviction of the Holy Spirit within us that leads us the right way from our natural human nature always. It is not easy when you start to leave yourself behind because you can't see where God is taking you. Your eyes are different and are seeing broken spirits and needy souls crying out to Him as you use to be. He now has filled you with His presence and molded you to be used the way He wants you too and you are willingly accepting all His choices, all His judgement, desires and authority He has given you with the gift of Himself living in you with His righteousness not your own right way and right doing any longer. He is living well in your soul!
Our Lord always asked people why they were angry at Him for healing the whole person His way and not their way. He tells them to make a right judgment. John 7v24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.
This does not mean we cannot judge by appearances but not only by appearances, we have to make a right judgment by judging the whole man. If they judged Jesus through the Holy Spirit of Jesus then they would have seen Jesus and who He was as a whole man and a whole God. They would have seen the God in Him healed the man and made Him whole from the inside out, just as God does in everyone. When we have His eyes to see we see God doing this in everyone! We know the grace of God healed us and if His grace can heal us it can heal any man. At that time they could not see has he sees only when He was glorified for doing His Fathers will could we be glorified receiving His eyes through His Spirit.
Since he is now living in us, what happens with His judgment? Does it continue to live through us after He has worked it in us? Do we not work out what He puts in us? Does he start judging others through us for their benefit just like he judged us for our benefit not to condemn us but to convict us and save us from evil all around us.Does he put us in the world where he can work through us for others in building their faith in Him up through his righteous judgment of truth or does he put us where he does not work because we want to go our own way and do what we want to do.
John 6v30 By myself I can do nothing. I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
What kind of authority did God give His first Son?
Matthew 28v19 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."
When we receive Him within ourselves what kind of authority do we have living in us, guiding us and doing His will?
Colossians 2v9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form and you have been given fullness of Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
Has he grows in you he will also grow through you. This is each of our test daily as our faith grows with His love guarding our hearts so He will grow to live through us for others. He will begin speaking through us for His purpose to help those around us revealing His truth.
Many of us are being deceived by these words "do not judge or you will be judged" and are not growing with His presence. If our only interest is our souls and not the souls in the world, He will stop working in us as long as we put other works, ourselves and people before Him. His truth has to go past ourselves daily this is His purpose of coming in us so He can live through us with his judgment for ourselves and then through us for others.
If Christ was only interested in his soul and in himself where we would we be today? If Christ only judged Himself and did not worry about any other souls, He would not be continuing to do His Father's will through us and he would not have done his Father's will then and died for us. Our Lord was about His Fathers business and His Fathers business was lost souls, living in sin and being separated from God which means separated from His Holy Spirit only Christ can give us.
Are we making our business His business? God gives all of us opportunities to prove who He is within us, and throughout our lives for others to know Him in word and deed. Do we care about the souls around us enough to sacrifice ourselves for them? To sacrifice our "Holy" reputation, our standing with others, and our standing with ourselves. Would we rather sacrifice losing our faith in our relationship with God we can't see, than sacrificing our relationship with others we can see. Are we seeing through His eyes what He wants us to see in what others truly need of Himself or are we blind to what others need because of fear of losing what we can see. Do we hear the lost through his ears for His purpose and not our own.
This word "judge" Satan has used to destroy the true people of God. Those of us that have received His understanding of His judgment for ourselves and then he uses for others, need to step up and tell His truth by the gifts of himself He gives us to use.
Matthew 10v26 "So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
Do you want to be judged by God, I hope so, and if you do he will make you into His instrument he can work through for others passing His right and true judgment of the heart as He continues to in you and now through you to help other hearts to fully surrender. You will no longer be the closed blinded leading the closed minded, but you will truly be seeing leading the blind to a full and opened mind through His Holy Spirit for our God and Savior!
