Psalm Ninety Four - Part Two
Yes its difficult for us to contemplate and yet all since earliest times have known of Gods
existence and there will be no excuse Romans 1:20
This being a two way relationship means that we go so far and God does the rest
He can do that which we cannot do
Sometimes Christians blame themselves for not sharing their faith with their loved ones and we
have to ask the question "who is my family ? and who is my neigbour? "
We might have a repsonsibilty to tell others but then we can blame ourselves when those poeple
are not saved
But God is also responsible as Father and even in the last seconds of death, God can speak to
those people and bring them to Himself
God can bring revival onto a community or town or nation with a sweep of His arm
Sometimes this may be after years of prayer by His people or someone
God can bring a person to salvation through prayer and we merely need to be who we are in
Christ to be a witness to them
We need remember we cannot save anyone nor can we bring revival, but what we can do is do
what we can on our side and work in prayer and doing whatever God tells us to do
Matthew 28:20 Deuteronomy 30:4 Isaiah 43:2
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not
overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame
Psalm 139 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Imagine God is thinking about us all the time !
As if we are the only ones alive on the planet, His Thoughts are with us always
Now carry this over to the Fathers responsiblity and Displine !
2 timothy 3:16 a continious repentance, a walking in Discipline, being Discipe........lined
If scriptire declares "I am always with you" and "my thoughts for you are always"
how much more so His discipline and responsibilty ?
Now taking Psalm 94:1-2 here we see that a lot of this Psalm is really do to with Judgement or Justice
Now an interesting scripture and please say what you think about this scripture
John 9:39 Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind."
what do you think about this verse ?
For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind." ......................................................................
And so we look at the judgement of God
the Judgement of God passes over us as Christians as in the passover Lamb Exodus 12:12
I personally believe that a Christian does not come under the judgement of God
When we go to be with the Lord and we meet God face to face I believe that the judgement
of the Christian follower will be that of receiving rewards , I believe the judgement will be
Judging between the works done, in other words how we have used what God has given us.
This would be a passing down of rewards and gifts , a Judgement of who will be and how
For as each plant is different so each heavenly body is different and each heavenly body
will have a different role to play
For why would the Bride Of Christ be Judged on her wedding day ?
No she would be given gifts and there would be a great feast
How can there be a Judgement upon her the Church or how can there be a judgement upon
the individual when there is the blood of Jesus of the Lamb that was slain to cover over and protect ?
The Judgement of the Christian believer is not the same Judgement that the unbeliever will face
The Judgement that is upon non believers can be said to be the Judgement that is upon
As the Judgement of those who are Christ - is the Judgement of awards and crowns that is upon
The Judgement of the non believer can be the same Judgement that is upon satan
Hell was never made for humans Matthew 25:41
The earthly life of the Christian can be seen as the life of Jesus (now think about that)
And so we see that Judgement can mean different things
we note that Solomon Judged in his kingdom in wisdom, in fact with Gods wisdom
1 Kings 3:26
This is discernment , the use of discernment, the Holy Spirit discerns the heart and intentions,
and motives of the heart
So that all is known and nothing is hidden and those who belong to Jesus will go to be with
Jesus and not be given over to the wrong birth mother
This takes us to a question about the "NOW JUDGEMENT OF GOD"
For God judges us now even as we live and move and have our being and this judgement is
the dividing of the heart motives and intentions, this is not the Judgement of salvation becasue we
are saved and sealed, but this is the Judging of our intentions as we live now or you might say
"the discerning of"
John 12:48 1 Corinthians 14:24 John 16:8 Matthew 10:15
The NOW judgement of God , lets look at some scripture
The NOW Judgement of God came upon the earth in the garden of Eden
The NOW Judgement of God came upon the earth at the time of Noah
The NOW Judgement of God came upon Sodom and Gomorrah
The NOW Judgement of God came upon Davids Kingdom as he counted His armies
The NOW Judgement of God came upon Judas
The NOW Judgement of God came upon Ananias and Sapphira Acts 5:1-10
The NOW Judgement of God came upon the Church of Laodicia
And so we go on
Now with this we have a question
we said earlier that the Judgement of God cannot be upon the Christian believer ?
So how do we rectify the above statements ? ..........................................................
