From The Daily Spurgeon: The blood of Jesus hath a mighty tongue, and the import of its prevailing cry is not vengeance but mercy.

There is a judgment however that comes from violation (sin) of the principles set down in the new

covenant. One of the important things we all note is that we are not to judge lest we be judged. That subject according to what I was taught was to properly judge, but not unto condemnation.

Our use of judgment is to determine the factors that causes people and circumstances to exist (discernment). We are warned to not bring finality to what we judge, so we are told not to condemn. The judgment that comes on people is good and bad (blessings and cursings) according to the person’s decisions. Another words, people judge themselves to be guilty in the case of violating God’s principles. God doesn’t exact judgment directly. That is what sin is all about. We miss the mark or violate a principle. We bring judgment upon ourselves.

So, the blood doesn’t cry for vengeance. It paves a way to avoid it. Again, we choose our judgment by either accepting God’s favor through grace and mercy or we accept damnation. We choose by way of free will.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
