He is our Judge
The Lord shared that we will get judged not only on what we do here but also on how we have journeyed. A scary thought. How are you journeying, how are you handling the walk. Do you understand that there is judging going on all the time in the courtroom in heaven? When you bring your prayers and your requests to the Lord can the answer be a yes?
Holy Spirit has given me pages and pages in the last couple of months on this continuous judging issue.
We read it in many verses. The courtroom position is continuous.
Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
Why do we defend because we are being judged? That is why Paul as a lawyer spent hours with the legal arguments.
“Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
He is the judge of all the earth and he will do right. He is unbiased so he has to come down legally correct in the courtroom. Our God is unbiased He is not going to overlook sin as He is required to be righteous. Don’t give the enemy room in the courtroom.
2 Corinthians 2:10
Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ,
11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Don’t be ignorant understand that we are in a court all the time. You raise a prayer or a request and Satan will come to the judge and bring up the reasons why that prayer can’t be answered. He uses the law to do this and the enemy is very good at this. If you give him room to bring an argument against you then the righteous judge has to listen and judge accordingly. Repent quickly and be washed in the blood.
And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
21 Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever!
22 “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
This was a courtroom battle and Daniel was found innocent in the courtroom when the enemy brought judgement against him. The case was won because of two things
1) Daniel was innocent he had committed no sin
2) And his witness was he had done no wrong to the king or his superiors. He walked blameless.
There is a lesson in this for us. It was court and Daniel was found innocent.
Also I will make justice the measuring line, And righteousness the plummet; The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, And the waters will overflow the hiding place.
In the courtroom the measure is exact. The facts have to be clear just as the carpenter has to be right on plumb line when building.
This is the justice in the courtroom so you need to bring a blameless position if you want the judgement in your favour. The blood of Jesus. Repent quickly when bringing your prayers so no devious argument can be used against you.
The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, And have not wickedly departed from my God.
22 For all His judgments were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me.
23 I was also blameless before Him, And I kept myself from my iniquity.
24 Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.
25 With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;
26 With the pure You will show Yourself pure; And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd.
27 For You will save the humble people, But will bring down haughty looks.
This is judgement. He tells us how to walk in these verses. What is He doing but passing judgement.
SO are we bound up by the law?
Law – do we follow the law so that we can stand in the courtroom and be judged and get the right decision. This is what the Jews followed. And we can follow as well.
But if you rely on the law then you are going to be judged accordingly. It will be factual and this is why in scripture the Lord says if you commit one sin you are guilty. This is a hard walk to handle.
Faith – But if we walk in faith this is accounted as righteousness and is something the enemy has no legal rights against in the courtroom. How can he argue against faith? You can’t be doubleminded but must walk in faith believing. When you walk in faith you are not relying on meeting all the legal requirements but you are walking believing in the Lord.
therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace
When we are in faith God can use grace. This grace can be used in the courtroom and the enemy has no ground to argue.
God can reward faith and overcome the law. This beats the law in the courtroom. Jesus died so we came outside the law and could move in faith.
If however you insist on working in the law and being judged in the law you will need to be sinless.
Does this mean because we move in faith we sin? No “certainty not” as Paul tells us. Sin provides room for the enemy to drag this up in the courtroom and bring the consequences.
In scripture this is why there is so much about the law and faith. God wants us to understand this area.
because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.
(For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Move in faith
But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead
Again and again if we allow law to control us we will be measured and found sinful. Christ died so we could walk in faith in righteousness so we are not under the law. We walk blameless because we choose to. We have a liberty.
James 2:10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.
James 2:12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.
We move in a liberty and we move in faith. We choose not be judged by the law as it is impossible to not stumble in one point (except for Jesus!)
Praise the Lord that I can stand in the Courtroom with my prayers and requests and stand in faith declaring the promises. I can stand having been cleansed by the blood of Jesus.
Let us bring our prayers to Him in this manner and see how they are answered.
