Summary: -#2- {self-judgment of our daily sins}, after we’re saved.

JUDGMENT # 2 “THE JUDGMENT OF SELF” 1st Cor.11: 31-32 8-02-08 Today we’ll continue our study to do with “the seven judgments” that we find in the Bible.

Listen as I read today’s text verses found in 1st Cor.11: 31-32

For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

This means, self-examination, the benefit of such examination is that we should not be judged. In other words, saved people may either exercise their own judgment upon themselves, or they may await God’s judgment. This is to do with restoration of fellowship with the Father.

Allow me to give you the names of the 7 judgments again.


#1-{the judgment of sin,} this took place on the cross of Christ.

-#2- {self-judgment of our daily sins}, after we’re saved.

#3- {the judgment seat of Christ}, where all that are saved will be judged for our stewardship, our works after we were saved and thus rewarded accordingly, this is after the rapture of the Church}-

And #4-{-the judgment of Israel, Jacobs Trouble, Jer. 30:7, “name-Gen.32:28--35:10” and this has to do with the Tribulation period. The Tribulation is “Jacobs trouble”. But it will effect all the earth.

-#5-{the judgment of the nations}, this takes place after Christ returns and has defeated His enemies at Armageddon, at the end of the 7 year Tribulation, “Rev.19:” but just prier of Him setting up His Kingdom, the 1000 year reign of Christ.

-#6-the judgment of the fallen angels}-

And #7 is of coarse, {the White Throne judgment}, this is when all the lost souls are brought out of hell and judged according to their wickedness, and according to the degree of their wickedness be tormented in the lake of fire, there are not any saved people judged at this judgment, these are all lost.

Have you ever noticed that when a person is first saved, it seems as though he’s on cloud #9 so to speak, he says to himself that he’ll never do any thing wrong again, he hates the devil and he’s full of zeal, he wants to stay busy for the Lord, he’s shouting the victory.

And then suddenly out of nowhere he’s suddenly face with the sin that so easily besets him. Hebrews 12:1-- let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,- Most of us has an, “ the sin which doth so easily beset us” Unbelief is the sin that hinders many of us, and also “the sin” may refer to one sin above all others that defeats many Christians, and it may be a different weakness for each Christian. Some of us are weaker in some areas than others, where you might be strongly opposed to a particular sin, another Christian might be weak in, but primarily “the sin” is to do with “unbelief”

Maybe this zealous Christian suddenly realizes that he are she has sinful and lustful thoughts to come into his or her mind and have judged that sinful thinking to be wrong, he then starts to wonder if he’s really saved are not, and “doubt” is the work of the devil in a saved persons life.

But let me remind us that we’re saved because we believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Saviour, realizing that we must not confuse judgment #1 with judgment #2. As saved people we can not be lost again because Jesus has taken care of the “sin” problem on the Cross.- judgment #1- that we talked about last time.

2 Corinthians 5: 21 For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

Judgment #1 and judgment #2 are all together different and separate.

As saved people we need to confess our sins regularly, every day, in order to stay in fellowship with our heavenly Father.

I know a man that told me that he has not sinned since he has been saved. But we know that that is no true, 1 John 1:8-10 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Let me say that it is true that the inner man does not sin, the inner man has been sealed unto the day of redemption but I know of no one that don’t sin with the outer man, this old flesh, the Apostle Paul said in two different places in Rom. 7: that “sin” dwelt in him, and I doubt if any of us can put ourselves above Paul.
