10/28/16 Signature Judgments
“Do you understand how important your every word and your every action are? I don’t believe that you do. If you did, you would not be saying and doing some of the things that are part of your everyday life. I see you slander those who come against you. I see you gossip about your neighbors and your friends. Often you ridicule those who are called by My Name because they do not believe exactly as you do. Some of you have become the judge and the jury of those who have not been with Me long enough to look and dress or act in the manner that you see fit. You shun them from your fellowship because of your pride in your religion of Christianity. It is bad enough that you choose to condemn those who have not embraced Me, but when you come against anyone who is called by My Name, I am not pleased. You are coming against Me!
"Why do you place yourselves above anyone? Have I not called you to serve everyone? You represent My Son. People see Who He is by how you talk and act toward others, especially those who are called by the same Name as you are. You do not realize how harmful your wayward tongues and hardened hearts are to you, especially when you have come against My anointed ones. I have placed reciprocal judgments on your life because of them. Those judgments have My signature on them. I have always paid in kind for actions done.
"If you bless, I will bless you. If you are merciful, mercy will be given to you. When you do one of My children harm, you have placed yourself in position for the same kind of harm to come to you for your training. Reflect on your past actions toward others, especially my greatly loved children. Then allow Me to show you how your actions have come back to you. You are called to function above the ways of the world. I ask you to do that because of your respect and love for Me. If that is not enough of a reason, I have sorrow for you. You will now clearly reap whatever you sow.
"Soon it will be paramount that you stand in your world in a manner that brings honor to My Name. It is more important than ever to do so in these closing hours. The days of shallow representation of Me are over. It is important to Me that others see a true representation of My Name. I will have little mercy toward those who tarnish the Name that is above all names. Remove yourself from that group or I will judge your actions with an iron fist.”
1 Chronicles 16:21-22 AMP
21) He allowed no man to do them wrong; yes, He reproved kings for their sakes.
22) Saying, Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm.
Esther 7:10 AMP
So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath was pacified.
Obadiah 1:15 AMP
For the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your dealings will return upon your own head.
Luke 6:38 NIV
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
God’s signature judgments are sometimes horrible to watch. People involved usually reel under the weight of them. What is even more difficult to observe is when those under the judgments are oblivious to them and why they are happening.
A pastor friend of mine, who has given Merry and me wise counsel often, made this statement when we were seeking help for judgments that were coming against us. He said, “Confidence in God is how little you respond when falsely accused.”
After taking that advice and not responding in any way to the “done in love” accusations, we have seen those who had accused flounder visibly as they felt the weight of the hand of God on their lives. Because we chose not to defend ourselves, we had the opportunity to see our God defend us as each person experienced the tailor-made response to their words. Father God has a way of doing that for His children. Often we have wept as we see some of them “shake off” the judgment, unable to understand why things are no longer going as well as before.
God’s Word is true and very real. I am convinced that, in these closing hours of time, we are going to realize that He means what He says. We will soon be held accountable much more readily for our words and actions. It’s time once again to become aware of Who we represent and how we are representing Him.
Make me accountable, Lord,
