Is There A Gap Caused By Evil Angels In Gen 1:2 Or It Was A Time-Gap God Took To Create A Lump Of Clay?

In The Beginning God Created Or Recreated?

Question : This article "Are Both The Word 'Created' And 'Made' Means The Same?" has several errors in it's teaching . Firstly...God did not "recreate" this world. The Bible speaks about the earth being without form and void because that is an example of a lump of clay that we would use to start creating. It had nothing at all to do with satan and his demons. "In the beginning..." is about God's creation. It is not about Satan or his rebellion. I wouldn't trust the author of this article at all when looking for biblical teachings. Notice the words at the start of says "In the beginning God created...". It does NOT say "In the beginning God RE-created...". There is no mention of recreating anything. What we plainly read is the process of God's creation.

Answer : Sometimes we have to think what the information the Bible gives, why it has happened, what might have caused it to happen. When you piece together the puzzles of the Bible, you can get the bigger picture that God is trying to convey. Other wise you cannot be a good Bible scholar or a teacher or even a spiritual person. Ok...I too agree with you that "In the beginning..." is about God's creation, but why did chaos, emptiness and darkness exist after the creation of God in the beginning? Especially the darkness in the Bible is equated to the kingdom of darkness from the beginning of time (2 Peter 1:19; 2:4; 2 Cor 4:6), that is why in the new heaven and new earth there will be no more darkness and the Lord Himself will be its light (Rev 21:22-23, 24-25, 26-27). Do you know that? Why did darkness descend on earth when God "has made everything beautiful in its time. " (Eccl 3:11, NKJV). If God has made all things beautiful, why should darkness come on earth in this beautiful world? It is not just right to say there are errors in my writing without describing what it is? What you have done is, just because you didn't want to connect the puzzle that Bible solves and want to see the whole picture, you are screaming error. That is not a good way of doing exegetic in the Bible. By speaking like this you are showing that you are novice and not a real spiritual person or a teacher to dig in to the Word of God. Ignorance! Ha,ha,..check in to the Hebrew and get back if you have any kind of doubt. "In the beginning God created...". It does NOT say "In the beginning God RE-created..." you are saying by rephrasing? It is a pity to see you reason like this, when you can see the context and then consider the real meaning of a passage further in to it by Hebrew meaning of the given passage in dictionary like Strong's concordance.

You have said, "The Bible speaks about the earth being without form and void because that is an example of a lump of clay that we would use to start creating. It had nothing at all to do with Satan and his demons," this is so ludicrous. I am asking you, does not God have the power to create the earth with one word as it is, does he need to create a lump of clay as though he is limited with his creative ability to create and so he has to do something as it is done in the laboratory? Why should God create a lump in darkness, and chaos should prevail over this newly formed lump as though God's laboratory has got blow off by some wrong mixing of chemicals that has blown the entire project of God in to this pathetic state. But Bible clearly reveals that all the angels of God sang the praises of God initially when God started the project-earth (Job 38:6-7). That includes the devil and his minions who were at that time working for God with joy in their heart. So we know that after this event the earth entered in to the state of shapelessness, void, dark and chaos prevailed over it because when God threw out Satan out of heaven because of his pride, one third of angels were convinced by the devil of a superior life with him than with God, so they trusted Satan and became demons in rebellion against God (Isa 14:13-15; Rev 12:3-4). These were the ones who delayed the project-earth of God and created confusion in the earth at that time. This was the reason for the little gap, but God has revealed in His Word that such evil things done by devil and his demons could not deter God's plan for the creation of earth and ultimately humans, as God continued with His creation to say good, good, good, good, good, and finally after creating humans on the sixth day God said very good and then rested along with them to enjoy their relationship as they were created in His own image (Gen 1:3). So we know that there was a gap theory of little delay that fits in to it, but the gap was not powerful enough to stop God from creating and establishing His will on earth. The gap was a delay that God allowed to re-structure the earth for the Glory of Christ to be revealed through it (Rev 13:8; 1 Peter 1:20; Eph 1:4).

In other words, because God allowed evil to continue in their rebellion within that gap, His plan for earth was not just perfect, but more than perfect because Satan as a rebel was able to still have access on earth as its guard (Job 1:7; Ezek 28:14, 16), and therefore by giving human a free will, man was allowed to choose obedience or rebellion by his own choice. In spite of man failing God, still God made a way for humans to come to Him through Christ's merit and not their own (Gen 1:15, 16-17; 3:21; Rom 5:12). One of the great things that happened to humans in the midst of all their failures is that God's best who is Christ who was slain in the mind of God before the foundation of the world, was substituted as a payment for human failures, so that God could once again have friendship with man apart from the sinful life of self that rules him which God hates because it destroys their fellowship with Him (Rom 5:19). So by having faith in God humans were brought near to God through Christ, where the Glory of Christ was given to them freely for eternity ahead, which God felt was more precious and valuable than a sin free world of robotic-humans who would obey God not out of their free will, but out of pre programmed in built perfect life designed by God without faults or failures in which free-will will be no more available in love expressed through God's unconditional forgiveness but only in obedience to God through the law as an obligation (Luke 7:47). The gap theory of millions or billions of years is not the truth of the Bible, because it does not fit in to the powerful God that the Bible reveals page after page who does everything for His own glory. God does things, the way He wants, the time He wants and finally He takes the route he wants to fullfill that which He wants. So the gap theory that reigned for sometime in Gen 1:2 is just a negligible time of some days or months or years, and not more than that. This is the only thing that we can learn from the Bible by digging in to it.           

I expect you to know the Bible really well before you comment saying error. You do not have to trust me, you trust the Bible that it solves all mysteries. Thank you.

Much Blessings...

What Will Happen To The Present Earth?

Is The New Heaven And New Earth Really New, Or Old Refurbished?

Question : Is Rev 21:1 speaking about the Old earth refurbished by God to be called as new earth, or is it really new in its entirety? Only one earth we see in the initial creation and from them on to until now there is no change at all. If God were to change the world and the old earth completely, He could have changed it all in the post flood world, but He chose the same earth to continue. So why not the same earth be called as the new earth in Rev 21:1?

Answer : Greetings in Jesus wonderful name! Revelation 21:1 speaks not about the present world, but the one that is coming, one that the Lord will build and run it under Him for eternity ahead. That is, a new heaven and a new earth, in it there will be no more sea because it is not God's will for humans to have it in the new creation of God [Read the following post: "Is the sea part of the God’s original purpose?"] : for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. In other words, the present earth and heaven with sea in it will pass away in to non-existence. How do we know fore sure that the new heaven and new earth is not the present one when the water can be dried and the same earth can be refurbished and used? Because the New Testament reveals that the present earth along with the present heavens and the visible universe will be burnt by God with fire in the future after the Millennial rule of Jesus with all the Church saints, and therefore it will all become gas to vanish away for ever, this will be the judgment for the present earth and heaven for its sin done in it for the all the Millenniums that humans under the influence of evil angels and their innate sin nature within them were at loose to sin in it because of the free-choice God had given to them. Angels actually have sinned from the beginning of time in which Satan spearheaded the rebellion against God because of his pride, and by convincing one third of angels a better life that he will provide in his kingdom, took one third of the entire angels in heaven and have fallen to the earth along with them (2 Peter 3:10-11, 12, 13; Matt 25:30, 41, 46; 1 John 3:8; Rev 12:4). That is why for all the rebels after the white throne judgment of God that will take place somewhere outside of this present visible universe, these rebels i.e. evil angels and wicked unsaved humans will be dumped in to the place of hell fire which God initially prepared for the evil rebellious angels (Rev 20:11-15; 1 Cor 6:3, 2; Matt 25:41, 46). So I believe that you have understood it.

So the bottom line is, the builder and maker of the entire new heaven and new earth will be completely God (Heb 11:10), and therefore it will not even have any micro dust size of the old material in it as it will become gas to get evaporated in to oblivion for the evilness of the old world.

Do We Express Our Kingdom Authority Sometimes By Screaming At The Devils?

Have You Ever Screamed When Praying For Someone, As You Felt Like An Uprising In Your Spirit Man?

Question : A Question for you...I was praying last week for the deliverance of this man...Afterwards when I laid my hands on him, I screamed really loud...but before laying my hands on him...I already confirmed with him that he had an unclean spirit... because I didn't know this man, and the night before I had a dream and interpreted that someone with an unclean spirit would be in my paths the following day...So my question is have you ever screamed when just praying for someone? Not intentionally, but just the Holy Spirit becoming angry with that spirit or spirits that other man had? Have you ever screamed when praying for someone, as you felt like an uprising in your spirit man?

Answer : Greetings to you in Jesus wonderful name!

The Scripture that comes to my mind regarding such prayers that gives faith and authority of God to utilize in delivering people are those which Jesus prayed when personally in communion with the Father God often, "offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear" (Heb 5:7). Prayers that bring the groaning of the Spirit in to our spirit are those prayers that are effective to release the authority of God around the environment around us because these are done in the will of God (Rom 8:26-27). These prayers can also be prayers done in tongues which are called as "praying with the spirit" or "praying in the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor 14:14-15; Jude 20). Once we are ready with such prayers, or have prayed sincerely by the power of the Holy Spirit even in our normal prayers, we are in battle-ready position to confront evil spirits where ever we go as a ambassador of the Kingdom of God.

God would love to reveal by dream or a vision the tactics of the enemy before it ever happens, because the Church of the end time is not just operating with the Spirit and power of Elijah (Luke 1:17), but is going to operate in the double power of the Spirit of Elijah because the mantle that has fallen upon the end time Church has come upon it by the faith capacity of Elisha exercised over the prophesied spirit of Elijah (Matt 11:14-15; 2 Kings 2:9-10). In our end time before the coming of the Lord, the visions and dreams of the revelation of the works of the enemy through the Elisha ministry will increase multiple fold as the works of darkness will also increase towards the very end (Acts 2:17-18; Isa 60:1, 2). Because of this the faith of the end time saints will be great and marvelous before the eyes of the world. They will challenge the Baals of the world and will make it powerless before the eyes of the world. Praise the Lord for His mercies endures forever over those who fear Him!

Yes this is what you have experienced by the power of the Lord in revealing the work of the enemy before hand so that the enemy cannot surprise you.

Again Yes Brother...I have had experiences where the anger of the Lord arose in me when I went against to destroy the works of the enemy. It is the work of the explosive anointing that we carry by the calling and grace of God, that actually explodes within us when we meet the enemy of our souls face to face. This causes us to have more sensitivity in our spirit man to the voice and emotions of the Lord, revelation of the mind of the Lord Christ (1 Cor 2:16), a holy anger and sometimes a sarcastic laughter against the defeated enemy who has been defeated by our Lord Jesus Christ already (Ezek 3:14; Acts 13:9; 17:16; Psa 2:4; 37:13).

There was always a ring of authority and a louder voice in Jesus when ever He taught the Word of God and also drove the demons by the very same Word through His mouth, these are the instances the spirit within him was moved by the Holy Spirit to let the Kingdom authority of heaven spread around his environment which changed the spiritual climate where ever He went (Mark 1:27-28).

Yes I have also seen other men of God moved by the Spirit, increase their voice and even screamed with Kingdom authority to drive out demons by just a single command of authority that burst out of their spirit man without any pre-meditation to say it at all (Matt 8:16). So our screaming against the work of darkness and demons comes from within because of an uprising in our spirit man which is the emotion of the anger of the Lord against the evil one and his deception that He hates through us and finally destroys through us (1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38; John 14:12, 13-14).

Is Tithing Required Both In The New And Old Testament?

Do We Need To Tithe In The New Testament? Is The Paying Of Tithe Approved In The New Testament Books? If We Tithe Will Jesus Receive It As Our High Priest In Heaven Now?

Question : You have done a great Job and blessed us with your article titled : Should We Tithe on a Loan We Take?, but you got it partially wrong Brother. There are two instances in the New Testament where the paying of Tithe has been approved. The first one was Mathew 23:23 where Jesus himself gave his approval of Tithing. The second one is in Hebrews where Bible explains that even though men receive our tithes here on earth, as they do, spiritually it is the Lord Jesus himself who receives it. Tithing is required both in the Old and New Testament.

Answer : Greetings to you in Jesus wonderful name!

I know the instance where you says in Matt 23:23, Jesus says like this to the scribes and Pharisees, "“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone." The above statement was spoken by Jesus not as a appreciation but rather a rebuke for the Pharisees and scribes who tithed even mint and anise and cummin [the smallest grains they received], but without God's essential requirement of justice and mercy and faith that makes their tithe acceptable to God. Jesus pointed that the reason for their giving to God was out of legalism and self promotion rather than for the love towards God for His abundant mercy towards them and the gift of faith they have received from His Word which must make them live in the appreciation of God's perfect justice all the time. Jesus is saying that giving tithe without the spirit of giving cheerfully for the love of God and His righteousness towards us is of no value to God at all. In other words, Jesus is reminding the Pharisees and scribes that giving tithe out of compulsion or legalism is like giving to God nothing at all.

Heb 7:7-8 says, "7 Now beyond all contradiction the lesser is blessed by the better. 8 Here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives." In other words, even though it is men who receive tithes on earth like the priests and levites in the Old Testament, finally it is God who lives in heaven is the one who blesses the tithe giver from heaven because it is God in heaven who is actually receiving the tithe through these men on earth. “Here on earth,” under the Levitical economy, dying men received the various tithes. Men enter by birth into a state with which this right is associated, and by death again pass out of it. No special significance, therefore, attaches to the men themselves. “There in heaven,” in the history now considered, one Melchizedek the King [i.e. God the Father] and Jesus the High Priest of the line of Melchizedek (receives tithes) now of whom the Scripture simply witnesses that he lives. Only God is the only one who lives forever. So this above Scripture does not point to New Testament men and women of God receiving tithes, but rather to the levitical system that had the power to receive tithe of people by God's design. But now in our New Testament period, the tithe or the willingly given cheerful offering that is received for the support of the ministry of the proclamation of the Kingdom of God is received by the ministry five fold office of the Church (Eph 4:11; Acts 2:44-45; 4:34-35, 36-37; 5:1-2, 9). Jesus gave Himself as the first fruit offering to God the Melchizedek in heaven and have thus been appointed as the High Priest for all humanity before God by Him (1 Cor 15:12; 1 Tim 2:5-6; Heb 4:15-16). In heaven, Jesus receives the tithe or offering from the New Testaments saints just as Melchizedek received the tithe in the Old Testament times symbolically through Abraham (Heb 7:1-3, 4, 9-10). Jesus gave His gifts to men in the Church to edify and build it in to His image of His fullness, and for the world at large to get saved (Eph 4:8, 11)

In the better covenant that Jesus brought (Heb 7:22), cheerful giving to God supersedes the tithe that the law demanded in the Old Covenant which made nothing perfect (Heb 7:18-19). We cheerfully give to God out of our love towards Him and not out of compulsion of the Law like in the Old Testament times (Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18:26; Deuteronomy 14:24; 2 Chronicles 31:5). Tithing is an Old Testament concept which was used in the nation of Israel under God's direction as a method of taxation to provide for the needs of the priests and Levites in the sacrificial system.

Now in the New Testament, as God in Christ Jesus has forgiven all of our past, present and future sins once and for all time (Luke 7:41-43; Col 2:13-14, 15), we out of love for God having forgiven all our debts for our sins which we could not pay, tithe may be at least a starting point we give to God, but more than that we give because we are blessed by God more than we can ever imagine with our finite mind, in Christ Jesus who has fully paid our debts of sins and cleared the penalty of it all before God by giving His own life for us and our salvation which God accepted on our behalf (John 19:30; 1 Cor 15:17). The New Testament nowhere commands, or even recommends, that Christians submit to a legalistic tithe system of the Old Testament times. In the New Testament what ever we give whether as tithe or gift, we should be giving “in keeping with income” or according to how the Lord prospers us monetarily (1 Corinthians 16:2). So the bottom line is that the New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving with a pure motive of love towards the Lord for all His benefits that He has already done and therefore (Eph 1:3), tithes and offerings should be given with an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ. The apostle Paul clearly instructs all saints regarding tithe and offering saying, “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).

So we know the heart behind giving is more important to God in the New Testament than the amount we give or the percentage we give. But if we consider the Old Testament saints could give out 10% and not out-give God, how much more we can give as saints in the New Testament and experience in our lives too that we cannot out-give God because He blesses us with much more in every way than we give. So thus we know that tithing was a law of the Old Testament, Cheerful Giving (2 Cor 9:7), Liberal Giving (2 Cor 8:2) and Sacrificial Giving (2 Cor 8:3) are all the graces of the New Testament. Thus the Bible teaches that God, who richly has supplied us with all good things, wants us “to be generous and ready to share” (1 Tim. 6:18), with those who teach the Word of God, needy saints and also give to orphans and widows through the Church or separately to them (Gal 6:6, 9; Jam 1:27; 2:15-16).

RE : Was Mother Theresa Saved?

Can a Catholic Be Saved And Still Stay With In The Catholic Church In God's Will?

Feedback Question : A reply to the post titled, "Was Mother Theresa Saved?"

Catholicism is full of darkness. But until Catholics see the true light of Christ...they'll keep believing that their darkness is light. I was born and raised as a Catholic, so I have no problem judging this false religion. Anyone who truly loves God and reads his true word...will be convicted and leave Catholicism. The Holy Spirit would not allow them to feel comfortable in a religion saturated in idolatry. Idolaters will NOT inherit the kingdom of God. Period. That is clearly stated in 1 Corinthians 6:9. Are you trying to call God a liar? That is very dangerous. If you study God's will learn quickly that followers of Catholicism are not saved. The Holy Spirit of God will not allow Christians to stay in a religion full of idolatry. Period. God set me free from Catholicism about 27 years ago.

Catholics are idol worshipers. I know this for a fact because I was born and raised Catholic. The religion is saturated in idolatry. So please stop falsely accusing me and wrongly judging me.

A saved Catholic could no more stay within idol loving Catholicism than a saved satanist could stay in a satanic church. They both worship false gods. Period.

"Mother Teresa" did not live the Bible. She rejected it. If she had lived it...she would have departed from a false religion where they worship idols. She would have joined a true Christian church and loved the Christian brethren. And you saying, "Have you done .01 percentage of what she has done to the poor, lepers, sick and the needy? Then you have no rights to comment on her salvation at all," it is nonsense. Nobody gets to heaven by their good works. Get a King James Bible and study it. Idolaters do NOT inherit God's kingdom. You can read that in 1 Cor 6:9. You need to study and believe God's word.

God teaches us in 2 Cor 6:14-18 that we must come out of and be separate from idol worshiping and he will receive us. You are trying to say that someone can stay in that evil and God will receive them. You have put yourself above God and openly contradict him. That is very dangerous and you should repent of that. What about Galatians 5:18-24?

Answer : Greetings in Jesus wonderful name! We are saved to do good works, but good works cannot save us, the only thing that can save us humans is the God's work of Jesus the Christ who died on the Cross to save us from sin and death.

If what you say is right, then what about Gideon who was one of the faith warrior but later was involved in idol worship that became a snare to him and his family (Jud 8:27), was he saved or not? That shows that God does not save any humans by their works, but by His grace alone. Solomon the king was saved or not because later in his life he also worshiped idols against the will of God? I mean just because they are saved by God's grace doesn't keep them from reaping the consequence for their sins of worshiping idols, which is they lost the favor of God over their lives. In fact their sins affected the blessings of the later generations which came through them and brought great loss to them as a whole. So for sure the consequence of the idol worship will destroy God's blessing in this life to the level of a person's involvement of it in one's lives and also will affect their later generations unless they repent. It will also affect the eternal blessings that come through this earthly life which Jesus said as, " 19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matt 6:19-21). In other words Jesus is saying, if you allow your heart to love idols of this world, your treasures in heaven that will be stored by God for you will become less and less or even go to a nil state if that is the way a believer will live until the end of his life (1 John 2:15-17).

God will try his best to chastise a believer when He lives rebelliously against His Holy Word as they are His sons, but if they resist it, they may even die physically or God might leave them in the pitiable state of life without any repentance in it which will be equal to that of living a life under the wrath of God physically (Heb 12:6-7; 1 Cor 11:27-28, 29-30, 31-32; Heb 10:29-30; 6:6-8; 2 Cor 5:9-10, 11).

Don't categorize people of God with Satanist, that is not right, God gives a clarion call to the Catholic church of the end before the Great Tribulation to come out of the bondage of works to get saved by saying, ""'Come out of her, my people,' so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;" (Rev 18:4). What does that mean? If people of God were not present in this Babylonian Church, why should God tell them to come out, or else even if they are not coming out, He should warn them that they will also receive her plagues. Salvation is by faith and faith only. Do not try to bring your works to it. A person may get saved, then it may take time for him/her to take a decision and move out of the dead place where they have got stuck and got used to it for years and years from the past. See a person gets saved by believing Jesus, then suppose he is caught up by his friends in the same place, his works are not good. Does God will unsave that person, just because he struggles to come out of his place of bondage, no instead he will help him understand to move out of it and walk in the blessing of abundant life and freedom that Jesus gives. It may not happen in an instant, but over a period of time it will happen or even if it doesn't happen by them staying stubbornly in that place of bondage, definitely it will destroy their spiritual life on earth but it will not alter their salvation as they were saved by Jesus apart from their works. So do not try to categorize people by what they are, but rather how they have believed God. Every person who has believed Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior to repent towards God will be saved by God based on their belief and not based on their behavior. Though a good behavior will follow a truly saved experience, the good behavior is only a fruit of faith and not a prerequisite which saves the sinners. Once a person gets saved, that is they will know they are sinners in need of the Savior Jesus all the time, then they will be convicted within when they sin by the Holy Spirit, and they will confess their sins and will live by faith which will give them a clean heart to see God working through their lives. Good fruit will follow a person's belief for the Glory of God!


So a person inside the Catholic church may get saved by believing in Jesus, but if he remains there without any growth further in his faith, he will not be blessed in this life and in the life to come too. They will feel the loss so much, that the emptiness will drive them out to a Spirit-filled Church as soon as possible. Even if they stay within the catholic church, in spite of that all, that doesn't unsave him. Whether something is argued or not, it doesn't matter. Do we believe what the Bible says as it is? In John 3:16, Jesus said that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus meant what He said, or else he would not have said it at all. Also Jesus said, that when He gives whosoever believed Him the eternal life, they shall never perish (John 10:28). Jesus really meant what He said! Period. I mean when a person becomes saved by faith, he cannot perish after that even by his own works. I believe that a saved person cannot get unsaved. The Bible doesn't speak about it at all? Can you give me a verse?

Do not think that I condone sin, all that I am trying to say is, even though sin thrills it will definitely kill the great abundant life of Jesus that He provides in which a package of joy, peace and righteousness are involved in it, but it cannot affect our relationship with God anymore than a heat wave can affect a camel in the desert, because Jesus has opened up an oasis of water for all the thirsty sinners from within themselves, and even rivers of living water to flow out of every believer so that other thirsty sinners can get abundantly filled with the water that comes out of them (John 4:13-14; 7:37-39). Because Jesus has got condemned instead of all the believers who believe Him, now there is no more any condemnation for any sins of their lives from God anymore forever and ever (Rom 8:1). Sin cannot affect the eternal destiny of the believers, but it can affect their earthly and eternal prosperity if they allow sin to rule in their lives instead of God perpetually (1 Cor 10:6-7, 8-9, 10-11; Rom 15:4; Heb 3:12-13, 14-15, 17, 18-19).

First of all, I know that because of your background in your Catholic Church that you have come from you are speaking like that. The bondage that has kept you in the past is making you say such a strong statement. Hello Brother,
2 Cor 6:14-18 in context is saying, come out of the darkness of Satan by having no intimate communion with unbelievers or their traditions, and believe the Scripture which points to Jesus to be saved is what it is revealing. He is not saying you to judge who is a believer and who is a unbeliever who act as a believer, Ok...fruit of faith is the works we do for Jesus. You do not judge the servant of Christ who is Mother Theresa all her life. You are also judging all the Biblical character who faltered in all their lives somewhere. Ok. Then you are judging yourself above the Word of God by saying, I know more than God who is in heaven and who is in hell. You have not seen the work of Mother Teresa, I know I have been there once by the grace of God where Mother Teresa did her humble work. So don't blurt out emotionally and relate to the Word of God to pick up and justify yourself. 1 Cor 6:9, SAYS SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU within its context of the sins which some of the Corinthian believers were struggling with because of their past involvement which tempted them in to sin against their own will (1 Cor 6:11; Rom 7:20), that is why it is saying of our sins as those in the past time and not the present because in the present all our sins the blood of Jesus washes it all with out a trace of it anywhere in our lives (Isa 1:18). Do we not sin at all, no we sin (1 John 1:8), but God has declared us saints in Christ Jesus so that our works can line up with our faith (Php 4:21). There is no true Church of Jesus Christ that any one denomination can claim to be, be it protestant, charismatic, apostolic, pentecostal, evangelical, catholic, etc...but only the one Universal Church which is registered in heaven is the true Church which operates from heaven on earth of those whom only God knows each one by name (Eph 3:14-15; Heb 12:23; Rev 5:9-10; 13:8; 1 Peter 1:20). In every Church there are members, whether they are born again is what makes them be part of the eternal one Universal Church of Jesus Christ which is registered in heaven (John 3:3). Which you are describing as true Church in your language, tell me? I mean what is your Church and belief? Don't tell me I am the one true Church on earth because I am evangelical and use only King James Version of the Bible, so all should be part of it to make it to heaven. The Father God is beyond your denomination, He is God over all the earth and heavens, He is so so BIG that you cannot denominationalize Him anywhere.

Yes we need to daily repent of our sins of which one of the sins that God sees is the sin of judging other believers who are not like us in their belief, so we must repent of that too.

I believe what we judge is not whether some one is saved or not, that only God knows and He will judge at the right time. We ought to judge ourselves first and then judge others when they sin to tell what they do as sin and turn them to Jesus.

But before we judge righteously the sin of other believers we should make sure we consider the following verse from Paul before we do that, "1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For each one shall bear his own load." (Gal 6:1- 5).

I can say that Catholics who have come to know themselves as sinners and ask God to forgive their sins through Jesus will be saved (Rom 10:13). Our belief saves us, not our behavior. That is why God gives a clarion call to the Catholic church of the end before the Great Tribulation to come out of the bondage of works to get saved by saying, ""'Come out of her, my people,' so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;" (Rev 18:4). We know the GREAT HARLOT BABYLON is none other than the catholic church (Rev 17:5-6, 18; 18:3). God has His people even within the Catholic church too who are saved, but stuck there because of their familial relationship. No believer has the right to judge any other believer, because all believers are God's servants. If we judge, God will judge us in the same scale we judge others. God is bigger than our church, denomination, doctrine to save those who call Him out of their heart. So we should never say anyone or anything as unclean when God has called something as clean and born again to show His love towards them through His salvation (Acts 10:9-23). I mean we cannot judge anyone as saved or unsaved until we come to stand before His throne one day to receive the prize for our works. We are here to love sinners, but hate their sins. So love, love and love others with a true heart until Jesus returns. But if someone call themselves as believers and lives a loose life of sinfulness without shame within the Church, it is the responsibility of the pastors, elders and believers to warn them of the consequence of sin or even excommunicated if they do not submit to the authority of the Church and rebelliously continue in sin (Matt 18:15-20). That is why apostle Paul said, "What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?" (1 Cor 5:12, NIV). So I believe that we should be more concerned about the living than the dead who are not here, of which Mother Theresa is one (Mark 12:27). Take as a example whatever good can be taken out of her life, and leave the rest for God to judge in His time and reward her according to the works of faith she did in her life (Php 4:8; 1 Thess 5:21; Rom 14:9-10; 1 Cor 4:5).    

Finally, Galatians 5:18-24 says, "But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication (porneia), uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

What does the above Scripture passages teaches us? Crucifying the flesh is a life long process and not just a one time event. So we must practice to walk more and more in the Spirit and be led by the Spirit, so that we will not just avoid sins, but grow mature enough to be more like the Son of God our Lord Jesus Christ in the fruit of the Spirit which is Christ's Character that we grown in our Character day by day after we are saved. Unless we are saved, we cannot bear the fruit of the Spirit. Once we are saved, we cannot lose our salvation. Praise the Lord!

God bless you!

About is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
