Often when I post articles and comments on this blog, I wonder if I am being overly Judgemental especially with regards to the words of our dear Lord Yeshua recorded in Matthew 7. These are the verses that really made me think a number of years ago, when I was still captive to the Watchtower religion. I felt that the organisation were and still are very Judgemental towards every one of other faiths on this planet.

So I thought I would paste in the first 20 verses of Matthew 7 from the NKJV of the Holy Scriptures.

Notice Jesus words from verse 15-20

Do Not Judge

1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking

7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

The Narrow Way

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

So after reading these verses, I feel that "If we see and hear FALSE PROPHETS" then we as Christians should sound the warning bells.

Jesus told us quite clearly that we would know these people by their fruits. These imposters are ravenous wolves, just like their father the Devil. If a literal wolf came to devour our children, would we just stand by and let the animal do what he wanted, or would we sound the alarm?

If we say nothing and do nothing, then we are condoning what is going on within the church. It amazes me how people can try to justify the breaking of Gods Laws by relying on Gods Grace. Many will say that God loves us so much that he covers over our GROSS sins, no matter what we do. The whole thing about Grace and Salvation is that it is FREE but we need to repent and turn around from the carnal nature of the flesh and try to live a life that shows we are transformed into a new creation.

Yes we are still imperfect, we still sin, but there is a world of difference in sinning deliberately and continually, or falling down and then repenting and turning away from the sin.

We know that we cannot judge as regards to a persons eternal salvation, only the LORD can do that. Also we should NEVER say to even an enemy of the TRUTH that they are going to Hell, but rather we leave ALL judging of a persons life to our LORD YESHUA.

If we have this attitude it will keep us balanced when we highlight errors and heresy within the ecclessia.

So I would like to wish blessings on all who look at this site and may the Lord protect you and lead you to RIVERS OF LIVING WATERS.

Every Blessing

Pastor David
