Who Made You the Judge?

By Eddie Lawrence

Introduction: Is it wrong to judge other people? Well you may say, “Jesus said you can tell a tree by the fruit it bears.” He did say that. Yes you may be able to see someone else’s sin or weakness, but the ability to see that does not give you the credential to judge. Jesus had some instruction about judgment for us:

Text: Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

The Final Judgment – classic sermon

Posted by: | Comments (1)

This is a sermon that was printed in 1827 by ELIHU W. BALDWIN, A.M. It contains some good material that can be made contemporary easily.

THE FINAL JUDGMENT.
HEBREWS, IX. 29.—After this the Judgment.

Whilst another year is ending, and time itself, as it respects us, is fast hastening to its close, the question very naturally arises, What shall come after death? The voice of inspiration replies, After this the Judgment. There is no need of entering upon a laboured proof of the doctrine so plainly declared, That there will be a day of Judgment for mankind. It is what seems written by the finger of God himself upon the consciences of men. The impression is nearly universal, with Pagans and Mahomedans, as well as Jews and Christians, that every one of us shall give account of himself to God. This impression is strengthened by a view of the very unequal and indiscriminate allotments of the present life. Here the virtuous are often the objects of hatred and relentless persecution. Here the man of ambition and dark intrigue, circumvents and treads down his more honest rivals. Here Providence often afflicts even the most pious; while the licentious, and proud, and oppressive, are, perhaps, suffered to enjoy uninterrupted prosperity. Now we believe, assuredly, that "God is just;" and we infer, that he will so exhibit himself by another and more equal distribution of his favours and frowns. We conclude with the wise man, "that God shall judge both the righteous and the wicked." Conscience and reason, then, unite with revelation, in saying, that "God hath appointed a day, in which he will judge the world in righteousness." No language can be plainer, and no event more reasonably anticipated.

15 Ways to Behave More Christian
by Eddie Lawrence
 
chrstianINTRODUCTION – It is much too easy to become swept into movements and lose sight of the bigger picture. At our weekly small group men’s meeting recently, eight of us guys sat at my dining room table as we do each Tuesday morning. The topic of discussion centered around how to be in the world but not of the world. The question was posed, “How do we stand firmly in love on an issue we really believe in?”

THE FOUR KINDS OF DEATH
by Eddie Lawrence, D.Min.

1. THERE IS PHYSICAL DEATH

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

John 11:12 Then His disciples said, “Lord, if he sleeps he will get well.” 13 However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep. 14 Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead.

In the epistle of James, if you look carefully, you will find there the biblical definition of death:

Who’s To Blame? – sermon outline

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The following is a sermon and sermon outline preached by S. Baring-Gould and published in 1886. Sift through it and you will be able to easily put together a more contemporary outline on a much needed message.

CASTING BLAME

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

INTRODUCTION –A Schoolmaster finds one day that several of his scholars are playing truant. The morning passes and they do not arrive. At last, in the afternoon, the truants turn up. The master has a strong suspicion where they have been: however, he asks, "Why were you not at school this morning?" "Please, sir, mother kept me at home to mind the baby." "Indeed–let me look at your mouth." He opens the mouth, and finds it black inside. "Ah! I thought as much, rambling in the woods, picking and eating whortleberries." So with the others, they make their excuses, but he looks into their mouths, and the black colour betrays them.

THE ELEVEN JUDGMENTS OF GOD.
by Eddie Lawrence

(The following is an attempt to give an order to the unfolding of God’s judgments. There may be others that some would include in the following list, but I feel this list fairly represents the more broad and universal judgment activity of God. Further Scriptures can be added and an actual sermon series could be easily developed out of this list.)

1. THE HEAVENLY REBELLION JUDGMENT
This occurred in the pre-creation period when Lucifer rebelled against God in Heaven and exalted himself as God. He and the angels who rebelled with him were cast out and removed from their glorious ministry of worshipping God (Isaiah 14:11-13).

2. THE CURSE OF SIN JUDGMENT
When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, the curse of sin came upon the Earth and upon all future humanity (Genesis 3).
