My Friends, have you 'examined' yourself, are you examining yourself, that you may not be found lacking? [Lamentation 3:40; Daniel 5:24-30; Matthew 25; 1 Corinthians 11:28; 2 Corinthians 13:5]
Thank you for returning my beloved friends. Now, let us continue this 'series' from April 25, 2018, our specific studies in the 'judgment of the flood' of Noah's day, as well as the 'judgment of fire and brimstone' in the days of Lot. We are studying the judgments that have already occurred. On posts dated April 11, 14, 18, 2018, we delved into the judgment of the Garden 'residents' - Adam, Eve, and the serpent. Now, let us continue to look ever so carefully and pull nuggets of gold from the Flood of Noah's day. [Genesis 5-8] But, because of the significance in being an 'example' of 'the last judgment', we will also look at 'the fire and brimstone judgment' of Lot's Day. [Genesis 18-19]. Please read these chapters to have a 'base' of understanding of the posts.
As with our post on April 25, 2018, we shall use a 'folded' 'post-card' approach due to the 'volume' of information presented. Take your time.
When all is said and done - how will your life 'weigh in God's balance'?
Today, April 25, 2018 - May 12, 2018, let us continue our 'series' to understand 'judgment' from the Bible. What are all the different judgments in the Bible? Oh, there is not just 'one', but because Our God is a God of justice, as it is written: 'A scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom' [Psalm 45:6]. So then, there are 'several.

1 I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses;
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own,
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

“The king’s garden.”
Mention of the king’s garden by Nehemiah brings to mind the paradise which the King of kings prepared for Adam. Sin has utterly ruined that fair abode of all delights, and driven forth the children of men to till the ground, which yields thorns and briers unto them. My soul, remember the fall, for it was thy fall. [Genesis 3]
Weep much because the Lord of love was so shamefully ill-treated by the head of the human race, of which thou art a member, as undeserving as any. Behold how dragons and demons dwell on this fair earth, which once was a garden of delights.
See yonder another King’s garden, which the King waters with his bloody sweat--Gethsemane, whose bitter herbs are sweeter far to renewed souls than even Eden’s luscious fruits. [See Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; Luke 22:40-46] There the mischief of the serpent in the first garden was undone: there the curse was lifted from earth, and borne by the woman’s promised seed. My soul, bethink thee much of the agony and the passion; resort to the garden of the olive-press, and view thy great Redeemer rescuing thee from thy lost estate. This is the garden of gardens indeed, wherein the soul may see the guilt of sin and the power of love, two sights which surpass all others.
Further elaboration today, April 18, 2018, from April 11, 14, 2018. In our 'series' to understand 'judgment' from the Bible, let us go a little deeper into the judgment in 'the Garden of Eden'. What are all the different judgments in the Bible? Oh, there is not just 'one', but because Our God is a God of justice, as it is written: 'A scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom' [Psalm 45:6].
So then, there are 'several. Therefore, more on 'the Garden of Eden' and the Genesis 3 Judgment of Adam, Eve and the serpent.
ARE YOU GETTING THE CLEAR UNDERSTANDING THAT SIN IS A VERY SERIOUS MATTER WITH THE LIVING GOD? HE HAS SO VERY GRACIOUSLY PROVIDED US WITH A CLEAR AND UNEQUIVOCAL RECORD OF HIS THOUGHTS AND JUDGMENT ON SIN. FOR AS IT IS WRITTEN,
NOW ALL THESE THINGS BECAME OUR EXAMPLES, TO THE INTENT THAT WE SHOULD NOT LUST AFTER EVIL THINGS AS THEY ALSO LUSTED.' [1 CORINTHIANS 10:6] We have no 'excuse'. [Romans Chapter 1]
Continuing today, April 14, 2018, from the 'Introduction' Post on April 11, 2018, let us elaborate in our 'series' to understand 'judgment' from the Bible. What are all the different judgments in the Bible? Oh, there is not just 'one', but because Our God is a God of justice, as it is written: 'A scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom' [Psalm 45:6]. So then, there are 'several'. Therefore, we are looking first, at the 'judgments that have already occurred'. So then, back to 'the Garden of Eden' and the Genesis 3 - Judgment of Adam, Eve and the serpent.
Among other parts of the 'judgment', God banished the first couple from the Garden of Eden for violating His clear command 'not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil'. This judgment affected all of creation.
[Genesis 3:17-18; Romans 8:20-22] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htlm
Why, some may say, did God not give Adam and Eve, 'a second chance'? Where is 'the pure blood'?
WHEN THE ALMIGHTY 'JUDGES', HIS 'SCALES' OF 'JUSTICE' ARE ALWAYS - IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS CHARACTER - SUCH ATTRIBUTES OF WHICH ARE 'RIGHTEOUSNESS' AND 'JUSTICE'. GENESIS 3, THE JUDGMENT OF THE SERPENT, THE JUDGMENT OF ADAM, THE JUDGMENT OF EVE. LET US REVIEW WHAT WE HAVE STUDIED TO DATE, AND THEN, LEARN SOME MORE LESSONS FOR GUIDANCE IN OUR LIVES. WE PAUSE, FOR WE ARE NOT IN A 'HORSE RACE'.
Continuing from March 21, 2018, Post A-5; March 28, 2018, Post A-6; March 31, 2018, Post A-7; this series will generally post on Wednesdays and Saturdays, going forward.
My Friends, we have learned that Eve gave, and Adam ate, some of the 'fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil'. And, Adam did eat. [Genesis 3:6] Notice ever so carefully. Either person can lead the other astray. But, either person can be wise and help the other to obey God. The latter is God's intent with 'one flesh' and not being 'unevenly yoked'. [1 Corinthians 7] And, as stated on our Post A-7, March 31, 2018, when the 'LOVE' is 'agape', [1 Corinthians 13], it is 'selfless', where a person wants the 'best' for the other person. [See the post March 31, 2018]. This is the way we see Jesus ever loving. And, this same 'love' is a 'gift' to all who are 'in Jesus'. [Galatians 5:22-23] This is some of what Adam and Eve lost, when they disobeyed the LORD.
