For the time is come that JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God? And if the Righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4:17-18. THAT THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST MAY BE GLORIFIED IN YOU, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 1:12. The "church" of America is full of sheep, (saved and to be saved), goats and wolves. A good church needs all 3. Those few Believers in the "American church" are being called out of worldliness and into CHRISTLIKENESS. The American church is falling into comfort with the world, the ease of compromising messages, and the apostasy of taking care of "it" TOMORROW. And never really getting it done. Fancy churches are falling by the wayside in Judgment for what they're NOT doing, AND in Judgment for what they ARE doing. There is still time to Repent, with very few doing so. Judgment IN the Body of Christ is also falling, calling Believers to even MORE Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience as the Holy Spirit guides us into deeper CHRISTLIKENESS. Worldly Judgment can be very harsh, and Judgment on Believers can hurt, (as in Chastening, Chastisement and Correction), as applied with Mercy and Grace by the Hand of the Lord. Worldly Judgment, without Repentance, always ends up in death and destruction to both the flesh AND the soul. Godly Judgment, with Repentance, always ends up as Glory to Christ and a more CHRISTLIKE Believer. The Law condemns sinners. The Lord Convicts Believers of sin, and Repentance washes the Heart clean of guilt. Ask the Holy Spirit to convict you of your sins, as you see them and Repent, as the Holy Spirit brings in the Peace that passes understanding with Joy Unspeakable. Sin abounds, but Grace much more abounds to those who ask. You ARE being Judged, so get hard hearted and reject it, OR, gladly Repent, and, Be Blessed.
