Today's verses are John 12:47,48: "If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.  The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day." My child, all my followers need to realize that there are two comings in reference to me.  My first coming is my incarnation, 2,000 years ago, when I willingly and joyfully obeyed my Father in heaven, took on human flesh, and was sent into the world to die in your place for the forgiveness of your sins.

That was the sole reason I came into this world the first time.  I did not come to judge or condemn the world in my first coming.  I came to seek and save that which was lost.  I came to give humanity an opportunity to be forgiven from their sins and receive the gracious gift of eternal life.

However, I want you also to know, and remember, that as I came the first time, I will come a second time.  At my second coming, I will condemn and judge the world.  I will judge all wickedness and unforgiven sin.  I will bring perfect justice to my Father in heaven's once-perfect world.  I will right all wrongs.  No one gets away with anything.

I will also judge and decide who enters heaven.  The one who has rejected me and my words and not kept my commandments will not enter into eternal life  I am his eternal judge on his last day.  In fact, the words that I've spoken that he has not heeded will be his judge.  There will be no doubt about it.  He will know what I've said.  He will see how he has rejected me and my words.  He will be held responsible.

However, for you who love me, your judgment has already taken place.  The moment you received me as your Lord and Savior, the minute you accepted my completed work on the cross for you, the forgiveness of your sins, you were pronounced "not guilty" by me.  There is therefore now no condemnation for you, ever!  You will never hear any accusation coming from my throne.  If ever you hear a voice of condemnation, rest assured it's not from me.

Why?  Because when you received me, you knew that on the cross I accepted your condemnation you deserved and gave you my perfect righteousness you didn't deserve.  On the cross, I accepted the rejection you deserved and you received my acceptance you didn't deserve.

It was all a free gift to you, given through my grace and mercy.  You could never have earned it.  There is nothing meritorious in you to have received my grace and mercy.  It's all a free gift, so that I and I alone receive all the glory.

My child, live in that eternal reality today.  Bask in my never-ending grace and mercy today.  You are forgiven.  That voice of condemnation is not from me.  You are saved. Your judgment has already occurred.  You are loved in the Beloved.

It is true!

You can trust me today.
