WHEN YOU JUDGE, YOU'RE JUDGED

'Judge not, that ye be not judged.' - Matthew 7 vs 1

Hello Dearly Beloved in the LORD JESUS, be re-positioned by this piece of reprove. GOD Bless You.

Our opening scripture is clear, and it says, Judge not so that you will not be judged. In other words, when you judge you will be judged. I love the way the Bible in Basic English Bible puts it, it says;


'Be not judges of others, and you will not be judged.'

The Oxford English Dictionary defines the term 'Judge' as, 'To pronounce sentence on, to conclude.' But Beloved, we have not been giving that power nor right to conclude on others, or to acquit men of their wrongs and errors. You know why? Because we too who judge do the same things. The only person permitted or rather qualified to judge, to convince men of their sin is one who is perfect and upright in all his ways; and you and I know very well that we aren't, only the LORD is. - Selah. So the question is, 'How can you who commit sin, call someone else a sinner?' You see? It doesn't just click. This' the reason we are instructed by the LORD not to judge any. I love what the Apostle Paul says in Romans 2 vs 1;

'Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.' - {KJV}


 
You see that? That was the Holy Ghost speaking through the Apostle Paul to the Church, HE says whosoever you are that judges someone else, this connotes whether you feel you're Upright, Perfect, not like the rest, HE says, 'whosoever' you are that judges, in the very things where you judge another man, you are also condemning yourself. Why? Because HE says you do the same things. It's simple. GOD said it, you can't argue it. Someone may say Apostle naaaaa, I don't smoke cigarette, how could I possibly be guilty of smoking the cigarette when I've never tasted any cigarette since I was born? But that fellow has inhaled the fumes of the cigarette somehow. How is he therefore different from the guy that took it in from his mouth? The so called smoker took it in from his mouth, this upright folk took it in from his nose. Simple. If GOD should judge any man by HIS Standards, my dear, we are damned! - Selah. There was a scenario that occurred on a certain day as I went with a friend of mine who is a Preacher also to a certain eatery. And while we were there eating and drinking, I sighted a certain table in the eatery room where sat two (2) Beautiful Ladies and a handsome young man, who I believe bought them two plates of rice well served with a big spiced fish lying on each plates. Beloved, something happened. I discovered that the girls just took a bite from the fish on their plates, and just a few spoons of Rice, and didn't eat again, and they stood up with the young man (who paid) and left. And I was like no it's not right, and I beckoned on my friend pointing to the table, expressing my displeasure to him in what the girls had done. Uhmmm, all the while I talked about it, the HOLY GHOST was silent waiting to correct me. And you know what happened? This friend of mine bought me a Table water, and for himself too, and when we were through eating, we decided to take our leave, and I left the Table water which he bought for me behind. When we got to the car, already about to leave the eatery environment, I remembered by the Spirit that I had left my Table water behind, immediately I heard the voice of the Holy Ghost saying, '...he that judgeth doeth the same things.' O my GOD, I got the message, and I repented, and my spirit became more alert since that day never to utter a word against anything or anyone no matter how wrong. - Selah. And I'm happy that today the Spirit of GOD has inspired me to write just that message to you. Hallelujah!

Beloved, I love you to know that we all do the same things, but when we judge someone else who do a wrong, we expose ourselves, our failings before all of creation. You may not commit fornication or have fornicated, but what about that wrong lustful thought? You may not do a thing the way they do it, but trust me you do it in other ways. Nevertheless, Christ is become our Righteousness {Jeremiah 33 vs 16}, therefore we are perfect perfectly before GOD because JESUS is perfectly Righteous. Hallelujah!

Let's look at this story and learn some lessons;


3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
 6  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. - John 8 vs 3 - 9 {KING JAMES VERSION}

 
Notice the verse 9, after that the LORD in the verse 7 had asked them a profound question, they who were condemning someone even to the point of death also were sinners!!! It's very obnoxious how sinners judge sinners. Hey! No point! You do the same, who therefore made you a judge over another who's just in the same misery with you? - Selah

Therefore Dearly Beloved in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, let's be busy thanking GOD for what HE has done for us in Christ JESUS, if we are busy occupying ourselves with Christ and HIS Righteousness, when we see men fall, instead of having a judgmental attitude, we will see reasons to be more grateful to GOD, knowing that in that man's falling state, if he knows the LORD, he will never be condemned for it! You see, if we occupy our lives with JESUS, our eyes will see through the lens of JESUS. But on the other hand, if we are occupied with self, our eyes will see through the lens of judgement. - Selah
GOD has Blessed you.
- Jenning U. Angel
