VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. The FATHER GOD judges no one
"Even the Father judges no one"
1. Instead of judgment, FATHER GOD demonstrated His Love for us.
Romans 5:8 (Amplified Bible)
But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.
Romans 5:10 (Amplified Bible)
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more [certain], now that we are reconciled, that we shall be saved (daily delivered from sin’s dominion) through His [resurrection] life.
There's no demonstration of punishment, judgment, anger but of demonstration of love, what FATHER GOD, ABBA, we have!!
B. The FATHER GOD has entrusted all judgment to the SON
"for He has given all judgment (the last judgment and the whole business of judging) entirely into the hands of the Son"
CHRIST is Judge, but even the Judge Himself does not want to judge but came down from the Judge Sit and gave Himself as Substitute to die for the Accused (Guilty)
Romans 3:25 (Amplified Bible)
Whom God put forward [before the eyes of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation, to be received] through faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and ignored former sins without punishment.
1 Corinthians 11:23-27 (Amplified Bible)
For I received from the Lord Himself that which I passed on to you [it was given to me personally], that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was treacherously delivered up and while His betrayal was in progress took bread,
And when He had given thanks, He broke [it] and said, Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
