Judgment Is Coming



Focus: Romans 2:16 - KJV

16. In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.


1 Corinthians 4:1-5


It is such a funny thing that men are fond of judging others particularly where they have failed themselves. If we focus especially on Christian folks, it will be observed that they are the most criticized in the scheme of things where a flaw is perceived. For instance, where a hundred people are found in the act of fornication or adultery, and one or the other of them is a Christian, the tendency is for the wicked to focus only on the Christian folks and exonerate the others. Like an African adage goes, at the death of the elephant, all manner of knives show forth. The fact of the exposition of a supposed sin of a Christian gives “right” to ordinarily immoral people and acclaimed hardened criminals to say all manner of rubbish about the Christian, even though some of them had remarried in adultery and by their actions caused the death of others.


Of course, it is out of place for a Christian to be found wanting in anything. However, most of the times, the act of the Christian judged to be untoward, are misjudged. How do we say a person who predicts the outcome of an election (even if he was not meant to have used the pulpit to do the same) and it did not so happen, is therefore of the devil? God works in mysterious ways and does not judge like men do. To Peter, Cornelius and the gentile brethren in his house were common and unclean; but to God, those were potential Holy Ghost carriers. Man looks at the countenance but God, at the heart. And it is God that is coming real soon to judge every man according to what he has lived on earth to do, not man. So, when the Lord shall come, how does the one who has been around doing all manner of atrocities but finds occasion because of the ‘misbehavior’ of one or another man of God, to denigrate all Christians assume he would be fair in the judgment?


Beloved, don’t be part of them that are quick to judge and condemn others. Like Christ said to us, why not remove the log in your eyes so that you may see clearly before criticizing the spec in another’s eye? The bottom-line is: what is the Lord’s view about you and your activities. If you are a Christian, stop bringing the name of the Lord to disrepute by engaging in iniquity. Like Paul, even though we judge not ourselves, let us be found faithful in all that we do. It is important to know that judgment belongs to God and He has not asked any other to do so in His stead. At any rate, let’s put away our anxiety and eagerness to judge others. The righteous judge is coming real soon to put everyone in His place and all things will be made plain on that day. It is safer to be on the side of righteousness than to be found wanting or caught in undue shenanigans.


SOLUTION: Decide to live life in righteousness never to be caught on the negative side when the Lord shall come. Desist from judging others out of bitterness or malice. Everyone is work in progress. Nothing stops you from being the example for others to emulate; but for heaven’s sake stop criticizing those who are striving to make heaven just because of your envy and jealousy.


Please pray: Lord, please let me be approvable when you come to judge the world. Do not let any mistake make me a mockery to the heathen who are signed fully up for hell and are not willing to yield despite all preaching and sermon. Let your word change them for better by your mercy in Jesus’ name. In the end, make all of us brethren at your feet to reign with you in Jesus’ name.
