I am currently working on the 2014 Judgment Seat script. I have made it to the Judgement scene. This one is always the most terrifying to write because I am, in a way, putting words in God’s mouth. That makes me want to throw up just typing that. With that in mind, I desperately try to use direct Scripture that is not taken out of context. So as I opened up the Word this morning as I began specifically praying and pondering over the content of this scene I opened the Bible to Psalm 89…
Amazingly it fit the heart of the message that has been attempted to be conveyed through the life of one of the characters…
If his sons forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
If they violate My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
Then I will punish their transgression with the rod
And their iniquity with stripes.
“But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him,
Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.
“My covenant I will not violate,
Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips.
“Once I have sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie…
All things are possible with God and nothing is too difficult for Him, yet there are things that God will not do.
God will not lie.
God will not alter the words of His mouth.
God will not violate His covenants.
God will not be unfaithful to us.
God will not stop loving us.
There are no ifs, ands, or buts when it comes to some things with God. There are things that are non-negotiable and not up for discussion. There are some things that no matter what we do, and no matter what we say, God just simply will not do.
Once God has sworn by His holiness it’s a done deal.
He might take us to the woodshed. He might be silent while we live out the consequences of our choices, but once we are His… We. Are. His.
Beloved have you actually believed the lie that God has forsaken you because of the choices you have made? Do not be deceived and do not be afraid… come boldly to the throne of His grace and seek His mercy… and know that He will never, never, never, never ever forsake His own.
