Why Judgment

All prophecies of judgment must be regarded as conditional. We know that the Lord delights in mercy. We stand in intercessory prayer to give Him reason to grant mercy and reason to avoid bringing judgment. Yet we also know that he loves judgment. His throne is established on mercy and judgment. His is continually showing mercy but he is also continually bringing judgment. The bible is full of examples of judgment coming after many words of warning. But how many examples are there of judgment averted by heeding the word of warning?

So we must realize that any word of judgment is conditional and can be stayed. But we must also see that there a great potential element of inevitability involved in any word of judgment.

I do not claim to be a Prophet, nor to hold the Office of a Prophet. But I have assembled some prophecies. And I have heard from the Lord myself, confirming them. And I have His word of instruction saying "Publish, Conceal Not!" So I humbly submit this to the Body of Christ, to be judged by the apostles and prophets.

WHEN PROPHECY CONFLICTS WITH THEOLOGY Now traditional eschatology teaches that Christ will judge the nations of the world at the last battle, Armageddon. For seven years prior to this there will be increasing plagues, wars and other judgments leading up to Armageddon. Just before this he will withdraw his people, the Church, from the world and the wrath poured out on the world, through an event called the Rapture. Now in recent years we find words of prophecy coming along that do not line up with the traditional theory.

2 Chronicles 20

20. And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

The Word of God instructs us to believe in Him and to believe his prophets. So lets look at what the prophets are saying. (A quick comment on the Rapture. Those who teach on Rapture are not prophets. Those who are prophets do not teach Rapture. So the Church is going to be here for the duration. Jesus said 'Occupy till I come.')

Let every word be confirmed by two or three witnesses (2 Cor. 13:1). This is the principle of confirmation. When one word comes along that is out of the ordinary, highly specific and or not directly confirmed by the Bible, it 'goes on the shelf.' When confirming words come along, then it must come back off the shelf!
