Many of you are very religious, and faithful to attend spiritual meetings. Many of you are good citizens and well respected in your community. Some of you hold positions of authority in the church and in the local government, but none of that is any indication that you know your creator! It is of utmost importance that you personally know My Father because without that relationship, hell is your destination.
Many of you have judged others spiritually, by their language, actions, habits and dress, and yet none of this is a criteria to judge by! These are outward appearances and do not qualify or disqualify anyone. As the final judge of all My creation, “I don’t see what man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but I look at the heart” 1 Samuel 16:7.
You may judge them for not attending church meetings very often, or because their language is a little rough at times. Some churches have boldly doomed people to hell, because they smoke or have a glass of wine. Do I condone these habits, of course not! But in a second of time, I can clear a lifetime of these habits away, they are nothing to Me. What you need to know is that, many of these precious ones, will give their life in a second for a friend, and that’s what I judge by. Don’t you know that “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends?” John 15:13.
This might be hard for you who are self righteous to swallow but, “every one that truly loves, is born of God, and knows God” 1 John 4:7. Love is the action of self denial, for the sole benefit another. Stop sitting in the judgment seat and taking bits and pieces of My word to judge and condemn others, as you see fit.
If you who have taken My place as judge, remember this basic principle; “he that does not love, does not know Me; for I am love” 1 John 4:8. “How do you think you can get away with saying, I love God, and hate your brother? If you do, your a liar: if you can’t love your brother who you can see, how can you possibly love Me, who you have never seen?” 1 John 4:20.
As a human being you can only go by appearance, and for this reason, you will never judge right, because you cannot see the heart of the person, as I do. Some of you are angry at the very thought of people you have been judging, being saved just as they are right now, even though their love may outshine yours, by a thousand times.
Those who know Me are so busy loving and giving their life for others, they have no time to judge you and they don’t even know you are judging them. While you were condemning them for having a cigarette, they were taking in a stranger, out of the cold. You heard them slip with a curse word, but I didn’t, because I was watching their heart as they fed the hungry.
Herein lies the problem with many of you; your lack of love makes you judgmental, causing you to look for their sins. Now then, because I am love, I am looking for their love action, and I’m unable to see their sin because “love covers all sins” Proverbs 10:12. They do not have a problem helping the sinner, because their love covers a multitude of the sins of those they are helping” 1 Peter 4:8.
Of course, I know that without the shedding of My blood of the New Testament, which was shed for many, there would be no remission of sins at all” Matthew 26:28. However the shedding of My blood was exclusively because of My Fathers pure love John 3:16.
However My blood was only shed once for all sinners, but “that same love that caused My blood to be shed, is repeatedly shed abroad in their hearts daily, by the Holy Ghost which is given to them” Romans 5:5 and it continues to cover those sins that you are falsely judging and attempting to uncover.
This may encourage some of you to move, if you are sitting in My judgment seat: “Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven” Luke 6:37. If you are still sitting in My seat, I’m sorry, but you don’t know My Father! Bottom line for those who still may not get it: “If you have money in your pocket, and see your brother has a legitimate need, and you refuse to reach in your pocket to meet that need, don’t say My love dwells in you or that you know My Father!” 1 John 3:17.
…………….Are you sure you know God?
