986th -- Message On Judgment And Condemnation


In this world people are quick to bring condemnation and judgment against
others either justifiably or wrongfully without taking into account their
own sins and shortfalls. What we must both realize and recognize is that
we are judge and jury over no one. God did not place us as individuals on
the Earth to condemn or bring judgment against another. We are on this 
Earth to love the unlovable, forgive the unforgivable and lift up all those
who are downtrodden. We are to offer a new beginning, a second chance, a
clean slate and a fresh opportunity to all those who feel condemned, 
judged and accused. (Proverbs 18:8)

We who have been forgiven much should be quick to offer much forgiveness.
We must remember the many times that we fell short whenever we are tempted
to bring judgment against another. Just as we have received grace in our
time of need from the Lord, we must also extend that same grace towards 
another. The Lord Jesus tells us in Matthew 5: 14-15 “For if ye forgive 
men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if 
ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
trespasses.” Let us remember the words of the Lord and be quick to offer
love and forgiveness. (Leviticus 19:16) (Isaiah 1:18)

So many people are quick to pull others down and bring judgment and 
condemnation against them, but let us separate ourselves and choose to act
as Christ did. He forgave all who came to Him and cleansed them of their
unrighteousness. He did not bring up their past, He did not bring 
requirements for them to meet to be forgiven. He forgave them without 
prejudice and asks us to do the same. A story that I think on concerning
forgiveness is about the woman who was caught in the act of adultery. She
was brought before Jesus by the “righteous men” of the city, the Scribes 
and Pharisees, and they proceeded to tell the Lord what she had done. 
After the Lord heard all that they had to say, He answered them very 
simply. Jesus said “He that is without sin among you, let him cast a 
stone at her.” One by one they walked away because they were convicted in
their conscience of their own sin. (John 8:1-11)

Let this message be an encouragement to you to never bring condemnation to
another. Don't judge someone based on their past because in doing so, you
may be hindering their future. We are not our past, but we are our future.
Just because we have fallen short doesn't mean that is the end of the 
picture. A new beginning is possible to us as well as to those around 
us. If God forgave the woman who was caught in the act of adultery, He 
can also forgive all of us for our many shortfalls. For our lying, for 
our cheating, for our stealing, the blood of Jesus covers it all. He 
cleanses us of our unrighteousness and with His blood, we become cleaner 
than freshly fallen snow. Be encouraged again to encourage the discouraged
and welcome in all those who felt the condemnation of others in times 
past. The Lord will be proud of you because you will act just as He did.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Matthew 7:1-4 Jesus says “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what
judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it 
shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is 
in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own 
eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of 
thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? ”

Proverbs 17:9 “He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that 
repeateth a matter separateth very friends.”

1 John 4:7-11 “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and 
every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not 
knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God 
toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, 
that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, 
but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our 
sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.”

I encouraged you to also read all of James chapter 2, where James explains
how we are to treat one another and not look at the physical aspects of life.

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
