The Court Room of Your Life

It would be scary to be in a court room with judge Judy, especially if your guilty. This also true if confronted by Judge Dredd in the Hollywood movies is the most famous judge, Sylvester Stallone portrays a cop with instant field judiciary powers to bring about immediate sentence on the guilty. The law is made for those who break it but to those who have a strong integrity to do what is right at all times the law is of no effect to them. the law cannot touch those who are not guilty. However, to those who are guilty of wrong guilty of sin the will hound the guilty until due justice is served. Jonathan Edwards preached a stirring message on “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” many souls were convicted and many got saved. The thought still remains for those who reject Jesus Christ and His salvation for a certain fear of pending judgement awaits those who rebel against His good grace. What people need to hear is that one day we will stand before a Judge of all judges, Lord of all lords, King of all Kings and His name is Jesus Christ. His judgment will not just be for a few months or years in jail but an eternity in a blistering insatiable fire of hell. Think about this do you want Jesus as your defense attorney or as your prosecutor against all the known sins you have ever committed?

What a great God we serve who is full of grace and mercy that he would give everything just for us to be with him! That he would lovingly and patiently give us as sinners who shake our fists up at God every opportunity to turn our minds and give our hearts to him in spite of all that we do against him and His word. The very fact that He gave His very Son to suffer and die in order to pay the sin debt that we owe in John 3:16. Imagine someone coming to your home and paying off all your debts that you owe. Jesus did this with our most costly as well as priceless possession that we have that belonged to Satan…….our soul. He bought, redeemed, and paid in full our debt to buy our souls back from destruction. Not only did he do this but he regenerated, transformed or basically cleaned us up brand new, just as if we were never tarnished or sinned, its what we call being justified. What a thoughtful loving God that loves us unconditionally who gave up His son to pay in full the sins we have committed against him. Those who have been forgiven, who have been redeemed, who have been transformed in newness of life to an everlasting hope the Son of God has become your defense attorney. In Romans 8:1 “there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,” No matter what the devil throws up in the face of God against you, Jesus steps in to say in your defense those sins have been paid in full by my own blood and God says we have no record of any sins that the prosecuting devil has stated against you. God sustains you at that moment at the throne of His justice he reads your name in the Lambs Book of Life your sins being washed cleaned by His blood thereby another soul the devil has lost his grip upon and has been been redeemed from certain pain and suffering for all eternity. Praise the Lord. No wonder paul says in Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren,by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

What? Trust God! Your Kidding Me?

Trusting God isn’t always easy when the things that are tangible have turned against you. It is also hard to trust God when the thirty foot tidal waves of circumstances comes tumbling down upon you and your about ready to drown. However, in the midst of harsh situations according to God’s word, trusting him and standing upon his promises, is the best thing that we could possibly do. When we trust him completely only then will God begin to work out a miracle just for you. For every miracle in God’s Holy Word began with a overwhelming problem but thats when God steps in thereby making a difference in our lives.

However, if we stop short of trusting him completely we stop short of the miracles that are there waiting for us. A prayer never gets answered until there is a total trust upon the one we have offered the prayer to, because if we don’t…. then we do not fully trust in him. If faith and trust is not there then nothing happens and you wonder where God is in your life. He’s not there because you have failed to take the necessary step to him being there and that is faith and trust in God the Father who will take care of His children. He will always take care of His children. His love is eternal and it is everlasting. He can never loose his love for us. His love will never diminish or fade away. He loved us so much that He gave you and me the greatest gift he could of ever have given His one and only Son, for God so loved in John 3: 16 pretty much says it all.

The scripture verses I am going to share with you are one of the most powerful verses in God’s word, it describes within these verses how much he loves us, how much he will back you and support you, all the way till you get to heaven, and it describes how powerful His love is to sustain and keep us even when the thirty foot tidal waves of circumstances come tumbling down upon us to destroy us. We are more than conquerors, if God be for us who can be against us and nothing in all creation will be ever able to separate us from the love of God. AMEN!!!

So sit back pull out your Bibles open up to the book of Romans chapter 8 and read verses 31 to 39 and don’t forget to read the next verse right after that in Roman 9: 1 where Paul says, “I speak the truth in Christ–I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit.” Verse 1 solidifies and confirms what he just wrote in chapter 8.

After you read these verses sit back ruminate, think over and over what His word says to you and be encouraged by it. If this greatly lifts up your spirit, encourages and strengthens you spiritually e-mail me so I can be encourage by helping you.

Love in Christ,

Richard
