1st CORINTHIANS ~Chapter 6

Putting to rest, ONCE AGAIN, the question of whether or not Christians are “to judge” anyone.

The answers IS ((((YES!))))

We are to judge among ourselves … not among the world: YET – that day will come when Yeshua sets up His Kingdom on Earth.

When I hear Christians saying that “we are not to judge”; I KNOW they do NOT KNOW their Scriptures.

If they are arrogantly ignorant in this ONE THING – how can they be trusted to be truthful any forthright in anything else?

Be wise.

KNOW the Word!

“The Church” is NOT a building – The Church is the Body of Believers made up of the saints, who belong to Yeshua Ha’Mashiach. The saints DO what Scripture says to DO; they do not blindly follow any man standing in a pulpit of some building who is tweaking the Scriptures to fuel his pet agenda to fill his building’s seats. The saints do not give ear to snake oil salesmen pretending to be men of God, and saints do not parrot worldly nonsense; because we know we do not belong to this world – it is quickly fading away.

STOP preaching the world’s agenda, such as gender bending policies, sanctuary cities, and illegal crossing of the border – and START READING the Word of God.

THAT is what you NEED to KNOW.

Everything else is stuff and nonsense, that in the grand scheme of things, means nothing.

********************


How is it that when one of you has a grievance against another, he goes to law before a civil court and not before the saints? Don’t you know that it is the saints who will be the judges of the world? And if you are to pass judgment on the whole world, how is it that you cannot exercise judgment in these small things? Don’t you know that we shall be judges even of angels? How much more, then, of these matters of everyday life?

At times when questions of daily conduct come up for settlement, why do you choose a court made up of men who are not even esteemed by The Church? I ask this to make you ashamed. It is true that there is not a single wise man among you who is able to decide between his brethren? And so, to settle matters a brother goes to court against a brother, and that before unbelieving judges.

Furthermore, it is surely not to your credit to have lawsuits with one another. Why not rather suffer being wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? But on the contrary, you do wrong to others and you defraud them, and you do that to your own brethren.

Don’t you know that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of Elohei? Don’t be mislead – no fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals or perverts, no thieves, misers, drunkards, slanders or swindlers will inherit the kingdom of Elohei. Some of you once belonged to those classes. But you have been washed and you have been sanctified and justified in the Name of Adonai Yeshua Ha’Mashiach and by the Ruach Ha’Kodesh.

Everything is lawful for me, but not everything is good for me. Everything is lawful for me, but I will not let myself be enslaved to anything. Food was meant for the stomach, and the stomach craves food, but Elohim will eventually cause both of them to cease their work. The body was not intended for immorality, but for serving Adonai Yeshua, and Adonai for the body. And by His might Elohim raised up Adonai Yeshua, and He will also raise us to life.

Don’t you know that your bodies are members of the Body of Mashiach? Shall I, then, take the parts of Mashiach and join them to a prostitute? No, never! Are you not aware that when one is united with a prostitute, he becomes one body with her, for as He said, “the 2 shall become 1 flesh”? Likewise, he who is united with Adonai Yeshua is 1 with Him in spirit. Shun immorality! Every other sin that a man may commit is done outside his body, but when one indulges in sexual immorality he sins against his own body. And don’t you know that your body is a temple of The Ruach Ha’Kodesh? He lives within you, a gift from Elohim, the father. So you are not your own. You have been bought, and at what a price! Honor Elohei, therefore, with your body and with your spirit, both of which belong to Elohei!
