From what I am seeing in this world today, there is not enough righteous judgement within the body of Christ. Do we not know that we are to judge righteously. "Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy",(Proverbs 31:9)? My goodness have we become so brainwashed to think that we are not to judge in any way? It's no wonder why America is going astray down the path of destruction; it's because most of the so-called Christians would rather tickle the ears of others than give correction over the sin in one's life! "Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter", (Isaiah 5:20). This is what the Holy Spirit told me about 3 years ago: "Your self is a self also, therefore if you speak bad against yourself, call yourself names, condemn yourself, judge yourself carnally or righteously, it is no different then if you have done it to another. For you will be held accountable for both the good and the bad". Reread that! Saints of God we must stand up against the fear of this. Please! Their soul so much more important than their momentarily feelings! Hell is so horrible and I have seen it! If you knew the torment, you would never let anybody pass you by, without giving them a chance in Christ! For his word shines light on the darkness in the person. We judge the sin in the person's life not the person! "Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:" (Ezekiel 20:4). For they who do not judge righteously this is what God says to you: "They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge", (Jeremiah 5:28). These are those who will not out of fear judge lest they loose thier members of their congregation! Hense not prospering in their church and self-image! Do you not know that: "When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood", (Ezekiel 3:18). Did you hear that??? I cannot stress the danger and need for this judgement for our society today! Do you think you can go on with your happy little life knowing that others that you know of might be going to hell; all because you were to afraid to stand as a living temple of God with your mouth and show them the wrong in what their doing, out of love and boldness? Knowing that the wages of sin is death! "And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies;"(Ezekiel 44:24). Jesus said: "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged",(Matthew 7:2). Hello! Do you want to be judged righteously, or do you want to be judged according to the world of sin? If righteously, then make righteous judgements! "Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth", (John 7:51)? Always judge righteously after you hear and know the case! For that is wisdom! "He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous:" (Proverbs 2:7,10:31). Saints of God, we must judge mainly those who are in the church. It is very important! "For so goes the church, so goes our nation"! "Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law", (Acts 24:6). "Rebuke a wise and and he will love you", (Proverbs 9:8)! If you are spiritual than you will judge all things on this earth! Whether they be holy or unholy you will judge them acording to righteousness, (1 Corinthians 2:15)! Be not in a hurry to judge the matter though, from experience this can be dangerous to you. "Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness", (1 Cointhians 4:5). Wait upon the Lord first! He will fill your lips with his understanding and truth! Help people get the sin out of their life's by confronting the very sin in their life's. Therefore they will have their completeness in Christ! "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump", (1 Corinthians 5;7). And last but not least! This is your authority in which you have in Christ! Remember this always!!! "Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed (most humbled) in the church", (1 Corinthians 6:2-4). If you don't, then this is what the Holy Spirit through Paul has the say about you! "I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren",(1 Corinthians 6:5)? Saints of God, we are up to bat. It is the bottom of the ninth. We need to step up to the plate and knock sin out of the ballpark altogether. One home run after the other! If you love, you will do this! Not just be glad that you are free while others are tormented and possibly going to hell around you! Again I beseech you to win the lost at any cost! As an ex boxer, I must say: we may be knocked down but not knocked out and I did not hear no bell! So one more round!!!
A very passionate article, Justin, and there is much truth in it.
Many of God's people are afraid to challenge anything nowadays, so false prophets arise and thrive.
