Volume 6 ... #27
True And Righteous Are HIS Judgments
The only "judgment" that should be important to us is the judgment of God ... What God thinks.
Man objects to God's ruling on subjects such as adultery, fornication, homosexuals and approves all manner of sin.
I would not care to hear opinion of man ... What does that matter?
Man breathes a breath and dies and then comes to the judgment seat of Christ where he will be judged for all eternity by God.
II Cor. 5 ... Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of HIM. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;
What God thinks is all that matters for we will be judged by HIS Word.
Mt. 12 ... Jesus says ... Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
We will be judged by our own words, by the words that come out of our mouth.
Our words and that which we allow to dwell in our hearts must line up with the Word of God.
We will be judged for every "idle" word that we speak and will give account in the day of judgment.
On this present earth, the opinion of man only matters in so much as his opinion lines up with the Word of God on the subject at hand.
True and righteous are God's judgments. (Revelation 19:2)
It is amazing to me that people flock to TV talk shows to hear opinions of other humans.
Isaiah 2:22 ... Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils:
for wherein is he to be accounted of?
The Holy Spirit in us reveals to us the thoughts of God on the issues of this present life.
Pay attention to that which the Holy Spirit brings to your mind for it is truth and righteousness and is the thinking of God.
I Cor. 2 ... But God hath revealed them unto us by HIS Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but THE SPIRIT which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
The Holy Spirit speaks to us in form of thoughts, reminding us of what God has said in Bible.
The Holy Spirit brings ideas to our mind showing us what to do in various problems.
(But there are other spirits also so you have to enter this with "pure" heart ... no envy, strife, or bones to pick for then you will bring up confusion and every evil work ... and will open doors for devil to give you ideas ...)
James 3 ... Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
