“Judge not, that you may not be judged – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 11:31-32) For if we would ‘judge’ ourselves, we would not be ‘judged’.
(1Co 11:32) But when we are ‘judged’, we are ‘chastened’ by the Lord, that we ‘should not’ be condemned with the world.
*** (Acts 5:10-11) Then at once she fell down at his feet and died. And the younger ones found her dead, and, carrying her out, ‘buried her beside her husband.
(Acts 5:11) And ‘great fear’ [of God] came on ‘all’ the church and on as ‘many’ as heard these things.
*** (Ecclesiastes 8:11) ‘Because’ sentence against an evil work ‘is not’ executed speedily, ‘therefore’ the heart of the sons of men is ‘fully set’ in them to do ‘evil’.
What do these verses… ‘Say about Judging’…? Many, who do not ‘Read & Study’ their Bibles… Often take “Matthew 7:1 = Judge Not, that you may not be judged”… “Out of Context!” This verse, to the ‘unlearned’… would seem to mean that ‘absolutely’ any judging is wrong. Is that the Truth… or just a ‘misconception’ of “Proper–Biblical Judging”…? Do you ‘not know’ that we are “Surely Told to Judge”…? Many misunderstand that “All ‘Final’ Judgment”; is given over to Christ Jesus… Who will “Judge all things, with His Holy Word!” [John 12:44-to-48] But there is a “Temporal Judgment”… that is given… to the ‘Saints’ of Christ Jesus!
*** (Luke 17:3) Take heed to yourselves. ‘If’ your brother trespasses against you, ‘rebuke’ him. And if he ‘repents’, forgive him.
*** (1Corinthians 2:15) But he who is spiritual ‘judges’ all things, yet he himself is judged ‘by’ no one.
*** (Isaiah 5:20) ‘Woe’ to those = who call evil good = and good evil; = who put darkness for light = and light for darkness; = who put bitter for sweet = and sweet for bitter!
*** (1Corinthians 6:1-2-3) [How] Do ‘any’ of you ‘dare’, when you have a matter ‘against’ another, to go to law before the ‘unjust’, and ‘not’ before the saints?
(1Co 6:2) Do you ‘not know’ that the saints shall ‘judge’ the world? And ‘if’ the world shall be judged by you, are you unworthy ‘to judge’ the smallest matters?
(1Co 6:3) Do you ‘not know’ that we shall ‘judge’ angels, not to mention the ‘things’ of this life?
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have ‘much’ to say about this, but it is ‘difficult’ to explain because you have ‘become’ too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you ‘should’ be teachers, you ‘still need’ someone to teach you the basic truths of God's Word. You have ‘become’ people who ‘need milk’ instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For ‘everyone’ who lives on milk is ‘still a baby’ and is ‘inexperienced’ in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for ‘mature’ people, whose minds are ‘trained’ by practice to distinguish good from evil.
*** (1Timothy 5:20) Those who sin, rebuke before all, so that the rest also may fear [God].
Proper Biblical Judging – 101 Blog
Another ‘Reason’… why people are afraid to; “Call Wrong–Wrong”… is that they are ‘Ignorant’ of the “Correct Biblical Teaching on Proper Judgment!” The word, “Ignorant”… simply means “Un-Informed!” We are born Ignorant; and within two years are speaking a foreign language. So too, those that are “Truly Born Again”… by God’s Holy Spirit; “Must” = ‘Read & Study’ His Holy Word! There is ‘no’ other way to know; the Mind of God; except by His Holy Spirit… Teaching You from His Holy Word! Many simply “Substitute”… Christian Music, Preaching, Church and what they call Worship… for the “Pure Meat” [Spiritual Food] of the Holy Word of God!
*** (Romans 10:17) So then ‘faith’ comes by hearing, and hearing by the ‘Word’ of God.
*** (John 15:1-2-3) I [Jesus] am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.
(Joh 15:2) Every branch in Me that ‘does not’ bear fruit, He ‘takes’ away. And every one that bears fruit, He ‘prunes’ it so that it may bring forth ‘more fruit’.
(Joh 15:3) Now you are ‘clean’ through the Word which I [Jesus] have spoken to you.
*** (Hebrews 12:5-to-8) And you have ‘forgotten’ the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons, "My son, despise not the ‘chastening’ of the Lord, ‘nor’ faint when you are rebuked by Him;
(Heb 12:6) for whom the Lord loves He ‘chastens’, and He ‘scourges’ every son whom He receives."
(Heb 12:7) If you endure ‘chastening’, God ‘deals’ with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the Father ‘does not’ chasten? [None!]
(Heb 12:8) But if you are ‘without’ chastisement, of which all [say they] are partakers, then you are ‘bastards’ [illegitimate] and ‘Not’ sons.
“How do I know that the Bible”…? – 101 Blog.
So too, “Some” are False Christians…! Do you ‘really believe’; that everyone; who says they are Christian… “Really Are?” Do you ‘really believe’; that Every Preacher, Teacher or Media Speaker… is ‘Really’ telling the “Truth about God and His Holy Word”…? If you do… then it may be that; you are “Not Born Again” by the Holy Spirit of God! Did you ever see the sign, ‘Full Gospel Church’… and wonder IF everyone else’s Church; is not telling the Truth, but a half gospel…? Do you believe in the Absolute Authority of the Holy Word of God; or do you simply believe what your Denomination teaches…? Did Christ Jesus say… “Few, Some or Many”… were not ‘Really His’…?
*** (Proverbs 14:15) The ‘simple’ believes every word, but the wise man watches his step.
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) Not ‘everyone’ who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who ‘does’ the will [Word] of My Father in Heaven.
(Mat 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy; in Your name, and through Your name; throw out demons, and through Your name; do many wonderful works?
(Mat 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, = those working lawlessness!
False Christians – 101 Blog [1/4]
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were ‘also’ false prophets among the people, even as there ‘will be’ false teachers among you, who ‘secretly’ will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pe 2:2) And “MANY” will ‘follow’ their pernicious ways, and ‘because’ of them the way of Truth will be ‘evil’ spoken of.
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste ‘to write’ to you about the common salvation, beloved, I had need to write to you ‘to exhort’ you to ‘contend earnestly’ for the faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jud 1:4) For certain men crept in ‘secretly’, those having been of old previously written into this condemnation, ungodly ones perverting the grace of our God for unbridled lust, and ‘denying’ the only Master, God, even our Lord Jesus Christ.
*** (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) For such ones are ‘false’ apostles, deceitful workers, ‘transforming’ themselves into the apostles of Christ.
(2Co 11:14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light?
(2Co 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing ‘if’ his ministers also transform themselves ‘as’ ministers of righteousness, whose end ‘shall be’ according to their works.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
Why are People… ‘NOT’ willing to call “SIN”; just as Christ Jesus calls it “SIN”…? Perhaps because their ‘Religion’, does not allow it… even though the Bible ‘does’. Or perhaps that they entertain ‘SIN’… and will not ‘address’ it in their ‘own’ lives…? John the Baptist, a believer; told Herod an Un-Believer; that ‘Adultery’ is what it is… “Adultery!” Many ‘do not’ have a working knowledge of the Holy Word of God… even though they ‘Say’ they have been a Christian ‘many’ years. Still further… they want ‘Kudos’ from their Friends and ‘Not’ the Approval of Christ Jesus!
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you ‘when’ all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the false prophets.
*** (1John 3:4) Everyone who ‘practices’ sin = also practices ‘lawlessness’, for sin is ‘lawlessness’.
*** (Romans 2:15) who show the work of the Law ‘written’ in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and the thoughts between one another accusing or even excusing one another,
*** (Mark 6:17-18-19) For Herod himself had sent out and laid hold on John and had bound him in prison ‘because’ of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife. For he had ‘married’ her,
(Mar 6:18) and John had said to Herod, It is ‘not lawful’ for you to have your brother's wife.
(Mar 6:19) And Herodias held it ‘against’ him, and ‘desired’ to kill him, but she could not.
*** (Matthew 23:23) Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithes of mint and dill and cumin, and you have left undone the weightier matters of the Law, judgment, mercy, and faith. You ought to have done these and not to leave the other undone.
*** (Luke 11:42) But woe to you, Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and pass over judgment and the love of God. You ought to have done these, and not to leave the other undone.
Isn’t it about Time – 101 ?
So where do ‘You’… “Go from Here”…? Isn’t it about time ‘YOU’… got into the Holy Word of God and started Studying for Yourself…? God gives His Holy Spirit to those who are Born Again and He will lead you into… “The Truth of the Word!” That is Why God gives His Holy Spirit…!
*** (Hosea 10:12) Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground. For it is time to seek Jehovah [God], until He comes and rains righteousness on you.
*** (Act 15:8-9) And God, who knows the hearts, bore them witness, ‘giving’ them the Holy Spirit even as to us. [Romans 8:9]
(Act 15:9) And He put no difference between us and them, ‘purifying’ their hearts by ‘faith’.
*** (John 16:13-14-15) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will ‘guide’ you into all Truth: for he shall ‘not’ speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.
(Joh 16:14) He shall glorify Me [Jesus]: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you.
(Joh 16:15) All things that the Father [God] has are Mine: therefore said I [Jesus], that He shall take of Mine, and shall show it unto you.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) and that from a child, you have ‘known’ the Holy Scriptures, which are able, to make you ‘wise’ to salvation; through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
(2Ti 3:17) that the man of God may be perfected, thoroughly furnished to every good work.
*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But if any is [willingly] ‘ignorant’, let him be ‘ignorant’.
