Christian are you in the school of Judas. You may not even be aware of this. While everyone else sees the traitorous Judas in you and they all do. Are you shaving or skimming time, late to work, leaving work early, purposely doing as little work as possible? Are you only doing the work in which you alone define the worth in accordance to your wages? Do you feel entitled to work as you see fit? Judas may not have even known until he became suddenly aware which is why he choose his own death.
I have seen this and the opposite up close. I work with a witch at one job and I admire her work ethic and the quality of the job that she does. She is a very real witch and she is of the knowing in regards to the powers of the spirit. Just think about that for a moment. She is one of the knowing and speaks in regards to her witchcraft as a matter of fact. I know of many other professed Christians. Those who know a lot about the Holy Bible and yet. They do as little as possible. They show up late, leave early, Takes extended lunches and breaks. While studying the Holy Bible. I know of one who does bring his own tools to work and yet has no problem using the equipment from the job site to operate his illegal business. He even takes equipment to his church to use at his church. He feels entitled that he can do these things because of how he has justified why he is allowed to do what he does.
But, Wait a minute isn't studying the Holy Bible more important than work? Think about that? Can it be said that your human employer is paying you to read the Holy Bible? and for how many hours a day? Is that right or is that stealing? Then when you go home and watch TV or play video games for hours and hours. Is that right or is that stealing? Stealing what? Stealing from whom? God...What does your flawed and limited human rationalization dictate?
Planks anyone? Isn't that in the holy Bible? But, What about my own plank in mine own eye. Well, yes, I have many. I'm confrontational at times. I do scare people with my approach. Even if they don't know me or do know me. I'm a deeply flawed human being and sin daily and more often than that.
Yes, I have stopped work many times because I had to write a quote or many. Sometimes these quotes are powerful in my mind and that my writing them down. It frees my brain. Which is why I work later. Which is why I work through breaks and lunches. Which is why I go in on my days off to work. I cannot control the timing of the quotes. But, I have to keep on making them write. It is not fair for others to always do my or your work. Right? Did I just justify my actions?
Yea, Go find the Holy Bible verses.
I find this interesting as I have had to go through my own school of Judas. That was when I realized who my true employer was. I was also one of the ones who joined the Master's work force probably in the late morning to receive my wages which was the same wages to be earned by those who started work before me. It was OK for me then, but when the Master went out and gathered more and more workers at later times in the day and at the end of the work day. Suddenly I became one of the offended and declaring that I should get more if I am to do more. Suddenly I found myself working less, arriving late, leaving early and that was when apathy began to set in. A Professed Christian with apathy. Really? A human rationalized apathy?
There are more than one school within the Holy Bible and it seems to manifest in all of us professed Christians to some lesser or more degrees. What about the school of Job? How long have you endured your suffering and have you endured like Job or not? Job may have endured all that he endured for weeks, months or even years and how many times did God comfort and reassure Job during these tests from satan?
What about the school of Jonah? How have you mitigated or ended your hate of those who was a represented Nineveh to you? Or how have you dealt with your own disobedience of what God wants you to do or where He wants you to go? Are we all not disobedient to God especially when we each do not make the actual effort to remain clean after the cleansing blood of Christ has washed over each of us. Especially after we each do not actively pursue righteousness and holiness which God expects from His own children.
What did Judas do and how long did Judas do it? Then when Judas suddenly realized all of his sins. Was that weight so unbearable that Judas took his own life instead of seeking repentance. Did Judas even justify that repentance would be impossible for him. Doesn't that still occur today with people. That they feel so guilty and ashamed that taking their own life is better than repentance. The practice of excommunicating themselves from their entire family is another option to actual repentance. My adoptive father was like that. He rid himself from being in the presence of good people and made bad friends. He distanced himself from his own family so that he would not bring shame to them. My dad knew the truth of the nature of the universe(I believe it). Although he did not leave any evidence behind in his death or tell me anything. He died holding onto his secrets which he promised to keep to the American Government. Their is a crucial understanding of repentance or maybe those souls have already been judged and repentance is not possible for them. I suspect those are few though. If the repentant man upon the cross next to Jesus can minimally repent then why can't others repent to a much more fuller revealing? But, then maybe that would make us judges and that kind of judgement only belongs to God alone. The point is the man next to Jesus on the Cross repented just enough to Jesus in order to secure his place in Heaven. While the other remained vile and ugly. His own place his also secured in the hot place.
Go and sin no more.
