 Re: Judge angels

not sure when bro Jaysaved, perhaps in the millenium or right after it before the last judgment. Why? well, coz God said so. it seems to me it's all part of the revelation of His manifold wisdom of God (Ephesians 3) which is the purpose of all creation anyway.

How incredible...what great gulf between the present day church which is characterized by a fear of man and his devil-may care sin...and the future church which will judge the angels. And yet Paul seems to imply that we should be aware of this judging even more for the present...

Just when I start to accept the "judge not" lullaby of the invertebrate sleeping church, I am awaken by verses that confidently remind us that we should expect to judge angels and strike fear in the heart of demons.

Yet we are too theologically sophisticated to accept these things at face value. Unlike the apostolic fathers who were still primitive enough to believe these things literally, we are often beguiled by our expertise.

I feel if we took seriously this verse, we would no more be the sleeping giant Ravenhill talked about. Indeed...if we only took hold of the ressurection...

Challenging and oh so humbling verse JaySaved!

Grace dear saints,

Well, I can't remember when, but I think I can answer the why.

First, God created us just a little higher than the angels.

Second, God created us to be like Him, the Judge of the Universe.

Third, What greater joy is there, than seeing something that you have created do what it is supposed to.

Fourth, I believe it was done as a reward for men. Even though we are all equal in God's eyes, we will not be equal in stature concerning heaven. Some me will be given great authority, others very little authority.

Fifth, It is God's purpose that we rule and reign with Him. So now we are in training, and then we will be given our due posistion based off of our inward motivations.

Well, I hope some of this provokes thought if nothing else.

Here is the reason we will judge the world and angles: 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

It is the Christ in us that is to judge, depending on Him that is Born Again in us and what we do with the nature of God that has been placed in us, this is our judging. Christ came the first time not to judge the world but to save it, the second time in that saving and becoming the life in the believer, that is or judging capacity. It is, "Christ in you the Hope of Glory.

"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God." Who is the Kingdom of God? Christ Jesus our Lord. "All thingz are loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus", that is in us and our all. "And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:"

Philippians 3:8-21 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

This is our judging, In Him.

In Christ: Phillip

I don't get it.

What is our judging?
