Are you a Christian that knows this is the season of Grace?
The time for judgement will come, but right now we are in a season of grace through and by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
That means we do not judge anyone in the natural. Not gay people, not Muslims, not leaders of our country, not people of other political parties. We should judge no one. And they reason is… it is impossible to effectively intercede for, bless, be a witness and bring to Christ those that we judge. And when we judge we have become the accuser instead of the intercessor. We have allowed judgment to replace a little piece of grace within our soul. We have denied the Holy Spirit full authority and have rather given the accuser a foothold to subvert our thinking, our words, our actions.
And when the devil has a foothold, we suddenly find ourselves being a little more judgmental and critical in other areas; of those we work with or our family and perhaps even of our Lord and Savior. We move from a place of blessing and strength to a place of slavery and defeat.
There is no effective witness nor ministry where there is judgment of the unbeliever.
Mathew 7:1-2 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Condemners, accusers and judges are the fake Christians of this age; modern day Pharisees. When you see them and hear them talk, don’t walk away from them. RUN FROM THEM! They will pollute your soul and bring you into bondage, making you ineffective for the Kingdom of heaven.
The key to being effective for the Lord is serving, giving, fasting and intercession. And when we are faithful enough in these endeavors God will open a door to witness and bring the offenders to Christ. That is the only option, the only solution. That is grace manifest through us.
