The One And Only, True Judge And Lawgiver

We often hear the question, “Who are you to judge me?’ Or, we aren’t supposed to judge! Do we really understand what it means to judge ? Who is the one and only true judge and lawgiver? James 4:12 specifically says that “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy…” it is not our job to decide what happens to a person. We may have an opinion, but we have to be careful how we speak of each other and decide what another person deserves. This is God’s job! We do need to look at Scripture and know what God says about sin, but love people at the same time. This does take a lot of humility! God judges our sin too, He will lift us up though when we are humble.

Key Verses

 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

11Β Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12Β There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But youβ€”who are you to judge your neighbor?

James 4:7-12

Principles To Live By- Have The Right Relationship With Our Lawgiver And Judge

  • Yield to God and accept His authority in our life- He is our Lawgiver and Judge, not us and not others
  • Stand up against Satan, he will flee from you. Satan is a threat, we need to fight against him!!!!
  • Get close to the Lord and He will be available and close to you
  • Cleanse your hands, sinners. Purify your heart, those who are double-minded.
  • Grieve, mourn and wail because as sinners, you should grieve at your sin.
  • As you humble yourself before the Lord, the Lord will lift us up. God is pleased when we are humble before Him

Don’t Slander Or Judge Each Other, Remember Who Our Lawgiver And Judge, Is

  • Don’t slander(talk against each other)If you do slander or judge, you are speaking against the law and judging the law!
  • When you are thus judging the law, you are not keeping it but are being judged yourself
  • There is Only 1 Lawgiver and Judge! He(God) is the one who is able to save and destroy. A Lawgiver provides the law to people. It is God’s decision what happens with each person and what they do in their life! So, who are we to judge our neighbor(those we interact with regularly, our community)?

Conclusion

Yield our life to Him, as a sinner who needs a Savior! Realize our sin grieves God and should grieve us also. Don’t be hateful, slandering people and judging them. If we truly are humble, we will see who is in charge! It is not us, It is God!!!!

  4. It is unfortunate that the most popular verse in the Bible is β€œJudge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1) Even the next verses warn that the reason to be careful in judging is that whatever measure you are using will be used on you as well. He then instructs us TO JUDGE, saying, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
    In context, Jesus went on to say, β€œDo not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.” (verse 6) However too few people read the Bible and only latch onto whatever supports their view, instead of seeking Father for what He really has to say to us.

    πŸ’Ž Sadly, this Reminds Me of Stephen Kings Book ‘FireStarter’ where a Devout Religious Mother πŸ‘© πŸ‘©β€πŸΌ πŸ˜” πŸ’œ 😒 πŸ’— πŸ‘© Attempts to Drive Demons 😈 β™₯ ❀ πŸ’œ πŸ’™ πŸ’– 😈 Out of HER!!! Daughter by the Dogma of Religion made in to a Movie 🎬 ‘Carrie’ and Well Recieved especially when Carrie Gets Mad and UnIntentionally Kills Her Godly, Sinful Mother; other Movies 🎬 worth a Mention ARE ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘Stigmata’ as The Primary Problem with WhatEver Version of The Bible Y’ALL Believe is That They ARE ALL Different as ARE The Old and New Testaments and this does NOT!!! even begin to address the Dogma of other Religions like Torah and Q’ran et al…this is where Lilith, Daughter of Goddess, had A Problem and Flew Away from Her Anointed Husband, Adam, who had to Settle for a SubServient Sycophant of a Wife in Eve who was Tempted by Lilith The Serpent and Seduced Adam in to Eating an Apple 🍎 from The Tree 🌳 of Knowledge; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Revelations Predicts Genesis as Apocalypse is a Beginning as Well as an End…so, in Summary, in Context of Goddess Bro Jesu puts it this way “Virgin Mary is My Mother πŸ‘© and Non-Sexual Prostitute Mary Magdalena is My Wife.”

    1. Yernasia, you are demonstrating your ignorance of the Bible, its history and textual criticism, as well as your ignorance of the origins of Hebrew scripture and the Quran.
