“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
For years, the world has carried out a long campaign against the idea of judging or judgment.
This most probably stems from Satan’s hatred of the notion that he will one day be judged by God and assigned his proper place in eternity.
The world–and those of the world–also hates the notion that it–and they–will one day be judged.
“Don’t judge me!”
“Who are you to judge me?”
“Who died and made you judge?”
The worldly HATE the idea that one day they will be held accountable for their actions.
AS IF judging and judgment were intrinsically BAD acts.
The reader can know that judging and judgment are good qualities to exercise because one uses judgment so often in one’s everyday life.
Every time one makes a choice–whether it concerns which clothes one wears, the food one prefers to eat, those who are one’s friends or the type of music (if any) one listens to–one is exercising judgment.
The average person makes dozens of judgments every day.
This War against Judgment kicked off in earnest in the 1960s when “discrimination” became a bad word.
At one time, “discrimination” meant exercising taste and judgment. To be “discriminating” was a compliment about a person’s choices and refinement.
Then, it was taught over the years that “discrimination” meant “bigoted” or “racist.” This was constantly drilled into the public’s heads.
So much so that at least one online dictionary warns against even using the word “discriminate.”
Due to the strong pejorative connotations of sense of “decide based on prejudice”, care should be taken in using the term in the sense “distinguish, make distinctions”, and this sense is primarily used in formal discourse; synonyms are generally used instead.
Basically, to “discriminate” means to “judge.”
And again, the world HATES the idea of judgment.
Recently, it was pointed out that those who follow the ‘prince of this world’ (Satan) believe one of their strongest arguments to be that Satan “has never judged man.”
AS IF it was ever within the power of Satan to judge man.
AS IF Satan doesn’t hunger for worship–which implies the power to pass judgment on non-worshipers.
AS IF judging and judgment were inherently BAD acts.
The worldly hate judgment because the worldly are deceived.
The worldly believe they will NOT be judged–in spite of hundreds of years of biblical warnings to the contrary.
One reason for this resistance against the very idea of judgment might be that most men do not want to think of themselves as a creation. Another might be that man’s opinion of himself is considerably higher than experience, history and God’s Word would indicate. Another reason is that mankind is, for the most part, deceived.
Choosing to believe that there will be NO judgment is a choice.
Actually, choosing to believe there will be NO judgment is making a judgment.
How ironic: that those who claim they do not believe in a judgment make a judgment which ensures they will be judged–and found wanting.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”
DOES the reader believe that he will avoid being judged for his actions in his life?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
