THE HOLY SPIRIT: THE SPIRIT OF JUDGMENT
When the Lord has washed away
the filth of the daughters of Zion,
and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst,
by the spirit of judgment
and by the spirit of burning.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Judgment who convicts believers of sin and shows them the error of their ways (John 16:8-11). Because He is the Holy Spirit, He is grieved when Christians allow sin to exist in their lives (Ephesians 4:30). If they continue sinning, the Holy Spirit brings judgment and the consequences of sin. The Holy Spirit would rather do good things for the children of God, but as the Spirit of Judgment, He must deal with sin. So keep yourself from sin, When you do this, you escape the judgement unto death.
The Holy Spirit does not warn you about judgment in order to terrify you or make you feel guilty. You don’t grow as a believer by legalistically abstaining from sin. The Holy Spirit tells you of sin in order to protect you from harm and to help you live a good life. You grow in the Spirit as you LOVE THE FATHER and OBEY THE SCRIPTURES. But the Spirit of Judgment will punish you when you sin. He is also the Spirit of mercy, who forgives you when you cry out for mercy no matter how bad your sins are.
Don’t look to others to learn how the Spirit has judged sin; rather, look to Him alone for grace and mercy.
As long as you're still breathing, there is opportunity for you to repent and be forgiven. CRY OUT.
Holy Spirit, I want to obey You and to become more godly. But temptation is so subtle, and I am weak. Give me strength to live a godly life.
Holy Spirit, thank You for both Your mercy and Your judgment in my life. I look to You alone for Your grace and love. In Jesus Name, Amen.
