You are absolutely right, you know - The term “judge not lest ye be judged” has been utterly misconstrued to mean “understand not lest ye understand”.
No doubt there will be those who dissent with what is plainly on the page, and will argue that God is nothing but love... which is true, but that doesn’t mean that there is not retribution. And that doesn’t mean that God will not be true to His Word.
There are some things so awful in Man, that the very land will spit you out - And if a nation cannot see those things being purged from another country, how will that nation see those things in itself?
This is just the beginning of sorrows. Those who refuse to see will have a very hard time ahead. Millions WILL perish. It is written. Jehovah will judge the nations.
Robertson is exactly right - and with precisely the right tone. His was not a judgment against individual persons, but a judgment against a nation. And he made it while helping greatly to pick up the pieces in the aftermath... That is his judgment upon individuals.
THanks for your kind reply.
God spent enormous energy illustrating what Holy was in the Old Testament.
Folks sometimes seem to believe and act like the NT watered that down with Christ’s GRACE and Mercy triumphing over judgment etc.
Actually, Christ’s standard was tougher. Love your enemies. Do good to those who use [and abuse] you. Love others as yourself to the max. Love wives as Christ loved the Church. Obey the Spirit of the law. Give your coat also to someone who requests your sweater. Give to him who asks. Avoid expecting back from him who borrows.
The Sermon on The Mount set a new standard.
We have rationalized it away as a lofty nice speech to recite parts of at memorable occasions. Christ wasn’t just talking to hear the wind blow.
Those who earnestly attempt by His Blood, Grace and Spirit to live out the Sermon on The Mount’s standards will find new empowerment and authority in these END TIMES that will be unprecedented compared to all of history—including Moses’ era.
God is making leaders to rule and reign with Christ eternally. This boot camp is not just to give us spiritual muscles to preen and prance before mirrors and throngs with.
This Graduation era will be a most dramatic set of Graduation ceremonies.
God will be illustrating for all Creation the consequence of choosing HIM vs the consequences of choosing anyone or anything less than HIM.
The globalists believe the critters even though they know that the critters constantly lie to them. Amazing. They think they’ll snooker God Almighty as though HE were merely another critter.
These managers of the GREAT END TIMES DECEPTION will learn far too late that they have been the most deceived.
I wonder where the San Francisco based “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” will be excessing when the quake hits. How grand will their absurdities and costumes be then?
God have mercy on all who have any heart to know Him at all.
May He lead them to Him through whatever it takes.
