Five Levels of Judgment

1. Warning - if you do this, you are going to get this. 2. Slap on wrist I said stop it. (1 Cor 11:30 - some of you are weak) 3. Chastisement the rod is implemented. Painful process. (1 Cor 11:30 Some you are ill) 4. Deteriorate in life, family. 5. Enemy allowed to overcome you or wipes you out. (1 Cor 11:30 Some you even sleep/ die.) 1 Cor 11:29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 33 Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come. CONTINUED COMMENTS: After much prayer and consideration, the perspective I have come to is that God is not mad at His remnant and has heard their prayers. He is using them to fill the bowls towards His coming kingdom and harvest of souls. He has His methods that may not be pleasant but are necessary. I have heard it said among the prophets that the Lord has lifted His hand/ hedge off USA just a tad, and the enemy has been allowed to come in. This is very disheartening to hear, but it makes sense as to the increase in devastation. I add that we do reap what we sow, and it is always the Lords mercy when we do not reap the full harvest of our bad seeds! So when the results start to show up we need to see the mirror and change. (Examples: violence on tv produces a generation of violence; sexual stuff in media produces a generation of no sexual morals; potty mouths in families produces profanity and profane consciences in children; fellowshipping with entertainment that says its ok to lie results in being deceived and lied to by devils.) Jesus said that the following must come to pass before He comes. We are in the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:6-8 See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

It is very important that we choose to obey the Lord through scripture. The glory that is coming will demand a level of holiness that most of the generic church is not walking in today. If they watch carnal entertainment that disobeys scripture, they are not prepared for the power of the ages to come! Why? Because when that day comes, those who willingly partake of both His Spirit and fellowship with demonic entertainment, will be given over to a reprobate mind where they will become deaf, blind and dumb so they will not be able to repent again. They will know Gods judgment about such, but continue anyway and have pleasure in so doing. GOD HELP US! Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. Matt 13:14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ' Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; 15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.' Romans 1: 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. He lovingly listens to and watches over His own ones who walk in the fear of the Lord. And they will be spared through it all and there will be a clear distinction between the one who serves Him and who does not. Malachi 3:16-18 Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name. 17 "They shall be Mine," says the Lord of hosts, "On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him." 18 Then you shall again discern Between the righteous and the wicked, Between one who serves God And one who does not serve Him. In these last days of climaxing kingdoms, although God is raising up places of refuge, (safe homes, safe towns, safe churches, safe regions) and it is very important to live and

work in the right place what is MOST important is that you learn to have a tender conscience with the Holy Spirit within you so that you: Do not blasphemy the Holy Spirit (Matt 12:31-32) Do not resist the Holy Spirit (Acts 7:51) Do not grieve the Holy Spirit (Eph 4:30) Do not quench the Holy Spirit (1 Thess 5:19) Do not lie to the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3-5) Do not strive with the Holy Spirit (Gen 6:3) Do not test the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:9)

How? Read the scripture and obey it. As you repent and labor towards making yourself ready for His glorious coming, He will answer your pleas for help and bend low in mercy and give you all the grace you need to be willing and also do His will. Phil 2:12, 13 work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
