Some folks live in fear of God’s judgements, while others don’t believe God judges anyone. For the most part, many have no understanding of God’s judgements in the earth. Many believe there will be no judgement until we stand face to face with God and they have their excuses all worked out. When I don’t know the truth, I always go to my Bible and search for what God says and then I know the truth.
Isaiah 9:6-7 When Jesus comes He will establish His kingdom and establish it with judgement and justice.
In the old covenant God’s judgement came with the law, a woman could be stoned to death for adultery. The folks under the new covenant are not under the law, they are under grace. Some New Testament folks believe that grace exempts them from judgement, so they can do whatever they feel like doing! We do not have to ever “think” what God says, He made His truth clear to every one that is of the truth. Every man who interprets God’s Word makes a giant error, His Word is not open for interpretation, it must de discerned.
Galatians 6:7 A man’s harvest in life depends entirely on what he sows.
This is God’s judgement in the earth today, we reap what we sow because we pick whatever we choose to sow. God shows mercy to the ignorant for a season but He expects them to search for truth. So, are the people under grace still under judgement as well? Yes, grace does not exempt anyone from judgement, it gives you the power to overcome the very thing you would be judged for. God’s judgements are in the earth today and violators will be prosecuted. If you show mercy you will reap mercy, if you sow love you will reap love. I am a born-again Christian but if I stone another man I will go to jail, grace will not save me.
1 Corinthians 11:29 If we take communion disrespectfully we eat damnation over ourselves. But if we would judge ourselves we will not be judged.
All of God’s judgements are bound in His Word, they all are predetermined and irrevocable. Only a fool would argue and attempt to negotiate with God, He will not change His mind. If you ask the question, will God judge what I am doing? You don’t know what you’re talking about, His Word is man’s judgement. If you drive forty miles an hour in a zone that is posted at twenty-five miles an hour, a cop will confront you because you violated a posted law.
James 1:17 Every good gift comes from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Malachi 3:6 I am the Lord, I change not.
Only a fool would negotiate with God or try to make a deal with Him. Men have no integrity, they will change their story for personal benefit or live to gain the advantage. Some think God has the same spirit as man and they think they are getting away with underhanded dealings. God cannot be mocked except in the mind of ignorant men, but we will all stand in judgement for what we do with God’s holy Word. I love God’s judgement, He has judged me to be righteous because I asked Jesus to be my Savior.
