Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
James 4:10-12 KJV
It is never our place to judge someone to Condemnation.
(“They’re not saved”)
Righteous judgement (Ours) is discerning of fruit and spirit
in a man.
Neither is it our place to judge someone to Salvation.
(“They weren’t or aren’t REALLY saved.”)
THESE Judgements belong to God alone.
Our job is to judge/discern who we should be separate from.
So we are not unequally yoked.
Christians are not Under the Law (10 Commandments),
However, if anyone has unforgiven sin it is the Law that will judge us.
Whether to Salvation or to Condemnation, by God.
Even Job’s friends, who sat with him 7 days, without a word; later accused, condemned, Judged Job. What was their end going to be?
Job 42:7 (KJV) And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
If it wasn’t for Job’s prayer of mercy/intercession for them, God would have destroyed them in His wrath.
Many think Jesus did away with the 10 Commandments.
Jesus expanded upon the 10 Commandments!
Adultery- Lust of the eyes
Murder- Even spiritually killing
It’s always been about man’s heart ♡
God doesn’t change.
I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins,
even to give every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit of his doings.
Jeremiah 17:10 KJV
Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.
We must always keep this in mind.
Jesus said, “Judge not”—but Paul said, “He that is spiritual judgeth all things.” Is this a contradiction? No!
Paul explained, “Let us not judge one another any more: BUT JUDGE THIS rather, that no man put a stumblingblock…in his brother’s way.”
(Rom 14:13, 1 Cor 2:15)
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Let us not therefore judge one another any more:
but judge this rather,
that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
Romans 14:12-13 KJV
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:
for they are foolishness unto him:
neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?
But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 KJV
Judge not according to the appearance,
but judge righteous judgment.
John 7:24 KJV
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,
but rather reprove them.
For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Ephesians 5:9-13 KJV
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
1 John 2:17-19 KJV
