When the devil wants to judge you, you need to know who you are in Christ.
You need to know, if you have taken your sins to the cross. Do you plead the blood of Jesus over your sins? If you have, taken those sins to the cross, no one, and I mean no one, has the right to bring them up again.
You need to know, to not have the appearance of evil yourself. Or you will be judged. You need to know what your own motives are. What kind of signals are you giving? Are they mixed signals? Are you speaking good and evil at the same time? Bitter and sweet? Your pipes may need to be cleaned. But maybe you won’t see it till you get judged…. Just a thought.
ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL. I THESSALONIANS 5:22 King James.
DOTH A FOUNTAIN SEND FORTH AT THE SAME PLACE SWEET WATER AND BITTER? JAMES 3:11 King James.
What are you doing? What are you telling folks, by your words? That may yes, contradict who you are in Christ. Don’t forget Christ hears everything you say, and what you think.
What are you doing in private? Can you be trusted when alone? God sees everything. You may try to fool others, but you can never fool God.
If you are repeating sins, then you have not fully repented. So that makes that null and void. So don’t give the devil an open door to judge you. A legal right.
You should not be playing with your salvation, you should not abuse grace. You should be in fear of God. Because He does offer grace, but after a time, correction from God can be harsh.
But let’s talk about when the devil wants to judge you. This can happen in a few situations. But first of all, have you confided to someone, things, that they can use against you to judge you?
Don’t give the devil ammunition, to attack you. Be careful. Not everybody is a friend, and I have seen friends, use things against them.
I personally, would hope not to do that. To a friend. Even exfriends. That I can frenemies. For some friends have revealed some things to me. But I learned the hard way, myself, don’t do that. So I try not to do that. To anyone. Even if they have hurt me.
For, years ago, in my being naive, and very trusting. (Which I am no longer that.)
I remember confiding to a friend, at work, and she was a Christian friend, so I thought I could trust her. Wrong. She threw it back at me, when she felt convenient. She made me feel so bad, because I did trust her. But worse she told others, it made me feel ashamed. And stupid for trusting her.
But it taught me, that in life, folks, are not often to be trusted. And the worse kind, is when a Christian brother or sister throws something at you. I know we all have this tendency to judge. But be careful with that. I myself have to recognize, the devil could use me in a matter, and I never want to be used by the enemy, by judging someone.
Gossip is being used by the devil to judge others. Don’t wound people. Don’t hurt them. Don’t damage someones reputation, just to do it.
God tells us that love covers a multitude of sins.
AND ABOVE ALL THINGS HAVE FERVENT CHAIRITY AMONG YOURSELVES: FOR CHAIRITY SHALL COVER THE MULTITUDE OF SINS. I PETER 4:8 King James.
But look at this scripture as well, and it talks about warning.
LET HIM KNOW, THAT HE WHICH CONVERTETH THE SINNER FROM THE ERROR OF HIS WAY SHALL SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH AND SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS. James 5:20 King James.
See the devil does not want you to save a soul from death. He wants to judge you. He wants to use you to judge others. But please be ever so careful. I think thats just one thing I have learned from folks, is they may either love you or hate you, but they do not use discretion in matters like this, that could be considered wisdom.
You and I both have to see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. We should judge, but judge righteously. But when someone starts hitting someone on the head with the bible, or starts even promoting something that is wrong.
Well, my antenna goes up. I get that red alert. I look at the motive. Even in conversations. Some folks are so sneaky, and sometimes, their motive is to be right. To puff themselves up. It’s that pride. They don’t want to be corrected, or warned. The scriptures tells us to warn. But it is true many in the body of Christ thinks this is judging. Read Ezekiel 33, if you want to learn more about warning.
So you have to be really careful of this. I see a lot of judging from the devil. Because they may hate your point on a matter. Anything of God, really just annoys the devil. So they will engage in trying to judge you, or making you feel bad for who you are in Christ. Hey they have not walked in my shoes, so I tell the devil shut up. You don’t know what God has done for me, stop judging me. I love God.
But then I look at their fruit. I look at their own walk, and I think to myself, you really have no room to be judging someone else, when you live like hell. What kind of fruit is that? They forget the final judging is from God, and I know God does not take lightly someone who tries to throw him off His throne, because they think they can judge. Bad move.
Yesterday, someone on social media, was knocking the President, again, this time calling him a rapist. This person, is known for supporting abortion. And it just ticked me off, because yes, we all do sin, and come short of the glory of God, but I said; Devil look at your own sins. And see, where you go wrong first! Like the scripture says, if you got a big piece of wood hanging out of your own eyes, you are not seeing too clearly. It looks very hypocritical.
THOU HYPOCRITE, FIRST CAST OUT THE BEAM OUT OF THINE OWN EYE; AND THEN SHALT THOU SEE CLEARLY TO CAST OUT THE MOTE OUT OF THY BROTHERS EYE. MATTHEW &;5 KJV.
Ouch. We can be hypocritical and I always want to be careful with that. I know, again my own sins, have placed our Lord on the cross. But it did bother me, so I defended our President.
But, the devil will do that, he will try to intimidate, and judge, and put you down, yet the fruit of that person, is not righteous. So thats why it looks like the devil is judging you.
Sometimes you have to remind the devil where he is headed. Thats hell. And the accuser has a special place in hell. Read Revelation 12:10 King James.
Yes, bring God into a situation. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
IN ALL THY WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS. PROVERBS 3:6. KJV.
But remember, no weapon formed against you will prosper, if you are right with God. He will make a way. You are the apple of His eye. Folks, don’t get that, about God, but He can be fierce, when it comes to protecting His people.
I have been wounded, by folks in the body of Christ, those were the hardest wounds to heal. I have been thrown out of churches. I have met Pharisee spirits, that did not walk in love, but have had very judgmental spirits. In the name of the Lord. But I have also seen some who hurt me, get hurt back in return. I do not for the record, rejoice in that.
REJOICE NOT WHEN THINE ENEMY FALLETH, AND LET NOT THINE HEART BE GLAD WHEN HE STUMBELETH. PROVERBS 24:17 KJV.
He says, that every tongue that rises against you, you will condemn.
NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME, SAITH THE LORD. ISAIAH 54:17 KJV.
I have seen God give me words, when the devil tries to judge me, that I am amazed at, but I don’t let them get away with it. I put the devil in his place. I remind him, where he is going. Especially, when he wants to judge me. And I know the devil is a liar. I know he only comes to kill, steal, and destroy, and if he can destroy your confidence, he will. But don’t let him. Confidence is a gift from God. I have that confidence, because Christ gives me life abundantly.
Even if it is in a friend, who the devil is using. Put on your armor of God. The devil will even use someone you trust and love. To judge you. To hurt you. See we have an authority, a boldness, a courage, that only God can give. And believe me, I have seen enough of my own battles, to know that there are times, it could only be God. But I praise God for that.
This again, is why I repent daily. I remember some of my sins. I know they are covered by the blood of Jesus. I pray, they are in the sea of forgetfulness. But I just know, in life, you will meet these kinds of people, who the enemy will use, to try and judge you. To hurt you. To shame you.
If you are convicted and you have repented, you should not feel condemned. The only way you will feel condemned, is you have not repented. The devil will judge you. Don’t let him. Make it right with God. Now do you understand why I love repentance daily?
Because He lifts the humble and turns from the proud…. Another matter for just my thoughts.
But if you really want to defeat the enemy. Pull out the King James word. And you know I only recommend this word because it is Holy. It has power.
Use it, tell that devil he is a liar. Ironic, I just got judged by someone who wanted to argue about the word of God, and instead of arguing, I know what God says, and I pull it out, write it, share it, and shut the devil up. As I wear my armor of God, I pull out my sword. This is my sword of truth! and it is sharp, and cuts deep. When anyone challenges it, they challenge God, and He is not mocked. The battle is His.
Don’t ever forget that. Galatians 6:7 King James. Look it up from a King James.
