“The Jews felt they were safe in receiving Father’s kingdom by seeking to establish their own righteousness, believing it to be that of Father’s. But they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of my Father. Who is to say who is righteous and who is not? Who sets the standard? Is a Catholic more righteous than a Baptist? Are either of them righteous? Do you have the right to determine what’s in their hearts? Though you know them by their works, do you know their true feelings? If so, by what do you gage the heart my Father designed?
When did the clay gain the wisdom of its Creator? So who declares one to be righteous? If the One that is declaring His people righteous, is He not also the one that passes Righteous Judgment? By what authority do those that are imperfect pass judgment upon those they do not know? When all claim to be righteous in their own eyes like that of the Jews, do not all pass judgment upon one another? Where is the basis for which person is truly righteous?
Recorded at Romans 10: 1-3 “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God concerning them is for their salvation! I can testify about them that they have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. Because they disregarded the righteousness from God and attempted to establish their own righteousness, they have not submitted to God’s righteousness.”
His heart’s desire and prayer to Father was for their salvation. He did not judge them, but he knew they were not of the righteousness given by Father. Why so? Because they had not submitted to Father. He knew them by their works, but he did not judge them.
Long ago before I was crucified, I spoke of the self righteous Jews to my disciples. I told them that if their righteousness did not abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, they would by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens. I told them that because those Jews had a form of righteousness in obedience to certain requirements of Father’s Law and to their added traditions. But they had made the word of Father invalid because of their traditions, and they rejected me, the way – yes “The Way” provided by my Father through whom they could have obtained real righteousness. Matthew 5:17-20. “Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever practices and teaches [these commandments] will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 15:3-9 He answered them, “And why do you break God’s commandment because of your tradition? For God said: Honor your father and your mother; and, The one who speaks evil of father or mother must be put to death. But you say, ‘Whoever tells his father or mother, “Whatever benefit you might have received from me is a gift [committed to the temple]”— he does not have to honor his father.’ In this way, you have revoked God’s word because of your tradition. Hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you when he said: These people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. They worship Me in vain, teaching as doctrines the commands of men.” and Romans 10:4. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
What is righteousness? It is conduct that Father expects from those that practice the way of being upright. In the Word, Father has given the guidelines for conducting ones self in a righteous manner. If you see someone acting contrary to those guidelines, you recognize them by the way they conduct themselves. That tells you they are not walking in the truth. Are you judging them if you point out wrong conduct? And if they refuse to accept the truth of the matter, is their blood upon your hands if you do not warn them of impending destruction on those that reject the truth? But what if you warn them of Father’s judgment and His wrath, and they continue in their loose conduct? Have you not done all you can do? But, did you pass judgment upon them, or did you more aptly warn them of a judgment that awaits those that reject the truth?
In the Hebrew Scriptures Father was identified as the Judge of all the Earth. Genesis 18:25 You could not possibly do such a thing: to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. You could not possibly do that! Won’t the Judge of all the earth do what is just?” And similarly in the Christian Greek Scriptures Father is called the Judge of all in Hebrews 12:23 to the assembly of the firstborn whose names have been written in heaven, to God who is the judge of all, to the spirits of righteous people made perfect, As Father’s vindicator of His Sovereign name, I’ve been deputized again as Michael the Archangel, and have been appointed to do the judging for Him. John 5:22 The Father, in fact, judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son, Acts 10:42 He commanded us to preach to the people, and to solemnly testify that He is the One appointed by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead Acts 17:31 because He has set a day on which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by the Man He has appointed. He has provided proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead.” and 2 Timothy 4:1 Before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom, I solemnly charge you. Because of my being authorized and decreed as the appointed Judge of all Mankind by my Father, resolves any seeming contradiction between the text that says that individuals will stand before the judgment seat of God and the verse that says they will be made manifest before the judgment seat of me the Christ. Romans 14:10 But you, why do you criticize your brother? Or you, why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. and 2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may be repaid for what he has done in the body, whether good or bad.
I told my apostles that when I sit down on my throne in the re-creation they too will sit upon twelve thrones to do judging. Matthew 19:28 Jesus said to them, “I assure you: In the Messianic Age, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed Me will also sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. and Luke 22:28-30 You are the ones who stood by Me in My trials. I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one on Me, so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom. And you will sit on thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel. I spoke of those who will judge with me in the coming Millennium. No one judges now except for me. Not those claiming their self righteousness. Not the Holy Angels. Not the Holy Ghosts. Not even my Father. Only I’m to be the Judge and no one else may claim that appointment, or they are accursed as liars and the vipers they prove themselves to be by their loose conduct.
What is righteous judgment? It is those that are declared righteous in Father’s eyes, to be spared the wrath. The judgment to live and learn “the Way.” What is adverse judgment? To remain under the wrath of Father. To die the second death from which there is no return. Forevermore removed from Father’s remembrance.
You judge righteously. This is non-condemning. Your judging is that of character judgment. Leave the judging of the soul’s fate to me. To judge others as I judge, is to judge yourself in adverse judgment that will result in losing out on the kingdom prize.
Your judgment calls have nothing to do with the soul’s outcome. As you know the seasons so to shall you know those you’re dealing with.
Their conduct is your guide for giving the judgment warning of the coming wrath. Those that judge would do well to consider Matthew 7:1- 2 “Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. For with the judgment you use, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” When they judge you, quote them my words of these Scriptures. For I tell you, I’ll not hold back the measure of judgment to them they have measured to you.
What have you learned? That to judge righteously is to judge only the surface of what you see. This is your guide to determining whether or not they exhibit the things Father expects. If they do not, you judge them as having zeal for God, but not according to truthful knowledge. Because they disregarded the righteousness from Father and attempted to establish their own righteousness, they have not submitted to Father’s righteousness. Let your desire and prayer be for their salvation, even as you cleanse your hands of their blood by deferring the judgment to me as you warn them of the coming judgment and wrath.”
