Judge - Not

Bible Questions Answered:
“...two of this man's children don't talk to him any more, and his business went into foreclosure last year, I tell my friends, clearly this man is under the judgment of God, and should not be teaching our adult sunday school class!...”

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

Two very important Greek words here, Krino, and AnaKrino.

Luke 6:37 KJV
Judge* not, and ye shall not be judged*: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

*Judged-Greek-Krino (Kree-no): Prop. To distinguish, i.e. decide (mentally or judicially); by implication to try, condemn, punish:-avenge, conclude, condemn, damn, decree, determine, esteem, judge, go to ((sue at the( law, ordain, call in question, to sentence.

Romans 12:19 KJV
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith The Lord.

“No,” Christian can claim this verse is his! And why is that,...this verse plainly tells us “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith The Lord.

Vengeance and, judgment, belongs to The sovereign Lord!

And now another use of the word Krino.

I Corinthians 2:14-15 KJV
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of The Spirit Of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth* all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

*Judgeth-Greek-Anakrino (An-ak-ree-no): To scrutinize, i.e. (by Implication) investigate, interrogate, determine: ask, question, discern, examine, judge, search.

A spiritual person, has divine “spiritual judgment” (insight-discernment), by The Holy Spirit, not to condemn, or to sentence an individual, but to discern, to be aware of men and events, whether they be of God or not. And that discernment (judgment of knowing), comes by The Word Of God, through the power of The Holy Spirit.

A spiritual man has God given insight-discernment, whereas the natural man cannot understand the things of God. He cannot know (judge, or know) the spiritual man, or the things he believes or does.

Psalm 92:6 KJV
A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

Micah 4:12 KJV
But they know not the thoughts of The LORD, neither understand they His counsel..."

Matthew 13:13 KJV
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Acts 17:10-12 KJV
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received
The Word with all readiness of mind, and searched The Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honorable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

Myrid are the number of books written under the title “Why do good people suffer?” And even though that is the case, yet more are written every year. But as Christian people, we must be careful how we judge a matter!

A case in point, Job a man that lived 1520 B.C. (Bishop Usher), in the land of Uz. A man who many verbally castigated and vilified.

Surely, said  they, this man has sinned!

Signs of Judgment?

Job 1:14,15 The Sabeans carried off, Job's 500 oxen, and 500 donkeys, and his servants were slain.
Job 1:16 Fire fell from heaven and kill his 7,000 sheep, and slain his servants.
Job 1:17 The Chaldeans carried away Job's 3,000 camels, and slain his servants.
Job 1:18,19 A great wind, killed his 10 children.
If this wasn't enough....

Job 2:7 Job came down with boils from the top of his head to the sole of his feet.
Job 2:9 Job's wife told him to “curse God and die.”
Job 2:11 Three Friends of Job arrived, miserable comforters all.

But what did God say of this man?

Job 1:1 NLT
"...He was blameless—a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil.

Christian people, must never, be guilty of ”shooting first, and asking questions latter”!
Everyone was sincere, yet they were sincerely wrong!

We many “Anakrino”, search out to know, but we must never “krino,” sentence!

Romans 12:19 KJV
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith The Lord.

So the question, was Job a sinner?

Job 42:7-17 KJV
7 And it was so, that after The Lord had spoken these words unto Job, The Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of Me the thing that is right, as My servant Job hath.
8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of Me the thing which is right, like 
My servant Job.
9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as The Lord commanded them: The Lord also accepted Job.
10 And The Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that The Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
12 So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.
14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.
15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.
17 So Job died, being old and full of days.

The screaming crowds, had been wrong, dead wrong.

Here's another man, who has had a life filled with hardships.
He was in labor, stripes, prison, death. Five times had 39 stripes, 3 times beaten with rods, stoned,
3 times suffered shipwreck, adrift at sea, long journeys, in dangers in rivers, in danger of robbers, in dangers from fellow country men, in dangers from other groups, in danger in the city, in danger in the desert, in hunger and thirst, gone without food, shivered in the cold without enough clothing, plus the burden of those who he had come to help.

My, this man, surely must have been a great sinner! No, this man was The Apostle Paul, a servant of
The Living God.

II Corinthians 11:22-28 NKJV
22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
23 Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.
24 From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.
25 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;
26 in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
27 in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—
28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches.

Does it mean, that one is “out – of the will of God,” if they experience great difficulties in life?
Neither does great wealth, etc. prove that one is blessed of God!

Luke 6:36,37 KJV
36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
