Result of Judging.
Judging is a fruit of pride.
Judging is Satan’s nature.
We are all blind to our own shortcomings, but we believe we see very clearly the shortcomings others.
To judge is to reject and condemn. It is a personal opinion which puts the other person down and yourself up.
We personally stand in the place of God when we establish
an expectation [a law] against the other person which we demand they meet.
There is only one judge, the judge of all the earth.
Gen 18:25. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
He has said, Judge not. Matthew 7:1. Luke 6:37.
To judge is to be disobedient; to judge is to play God.
Man judges according to actions. Father God judges based on why.
1 Samuel 16:7. Jeremiah 17:9-10.
The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit, not the sword of man, therefore it is not proper for man to quote scripture outside of a clear direction given by the Spirit.
To do so is to play God.
We know there are passages of scripture that indicate we are to judge, the question is HOW?
A better word is to discern, [A word of knowledge] from Father Godís perspective. After this comes a word of wisdom to give direction as to how and what to do and say.
We are to speak the truth in love, we are to seek to restore in a spirit of meekness. Galatians 6:1
Jesus reminded those who wanted to apply the law and demand a lady be stoned, of their own shortcomings. John 8:7
In true relationship there is no need to judge, no need for law.
1Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
Relationship is all about communication.
Peopleís values are different, but there must be respect.
Where there is no respect, there is no unity.
How can two walk together unless they agree, Amos3:3.
A huge curse that is destroying the body of Christ is when believers continue to work from the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, [right and wrong which was the disobedience of Adam and Eve] instead of all replies coming from the Tree of Life, by the discernment of the Holy Spirit.
This is true relationship as Father God intended.
Father God does not work from good and evil, He works from Life.
Judging is death to relationships.
With every judgment man makes, he locks himself into a control that stops Father God from dealing with the situation.
When man judges, he puts himself under the control of the thing or person he judges and he ends up doing it or fighting against it.
The key to freedom is to repent of judging and pray blessings on those who persecute you.
Romans 12:14 Bless and curse not.
