Scripture Focus…

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. (2) I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! (3) For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. (4) [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. (5) You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, (6) Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday. (7) A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. (8) Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. (9) Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, (10) There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. (11) For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. (12) They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. (13) You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. (14) Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. (15) He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. (16) With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
(Psalms 91:1–16 AMPC)

Judge Yourself – And You Won’t Be Judged

Failure to Judge Yourself Results in the Lord’s Judgment

Let me show you how important it is to walk in love toward those in the body of Christ.

From 1947 through 1958, there was a healing revival here in America. There were about 120 of us in the healing ministry who belonged to an organization called The Voice of Healing. We held conventions, and Gordon Lindsay published many of the healing testimonies in his magazine, The Voice of Healing.

Brother Oral Roberts started coming to the forefront in ministry about 1848, and eventually he got a tent that would seat 20,000 people. There was one fellow in The Voice of Healing who got a larger tent than Roberts’ tent. He put another section in it so he could seat 22,000 and occasionally he’d fill it up.

This other fellow was also one of the leading healing evangelists in the days of The Voice of Healing. No one had a greater healing ministry at that time than he did.

I saw some of the greatest miracles in this evangelist’s ministry that I’ve ever seen.

But the Lord told me, “You go tell him that he’s not going to live much longer unless he judges himself.” The man was only thirty-five years old at the time.

The Lord said to me, “The number-one thing he’s to judge himself on is walking in love toward his fellow minister. Secondly, he needs to judge himself on money.”

The Lord said the third thing this evangelist needed to judge himself on was diet. I don’t mean to be unkind about it, but this man was as big as a cow and ate like a horse.

Well, we don’t have to become health-food nuts. That’s not what the Lord was saying. But on the other hand, I remember something John Wesley said. He said, “I don’t live to eat; I just eat to live.”

Was it scriptural for this minister to judge himself? Of course it was. The Lord was trying to warn him, because if he would have judged himself, the Lord wouldn’t have had to judge him. That’s what the Bible says.

1 Corinthians 11:31, 32
32 But WHEN WE ARE JUDGED, WE ARE CHASTENED OF THE LORD, that we should not be condemned with the world.

I remember one time my wife and I were on our way to hold a meeting, and we stopped by to visit this fellow’s tent meeting. In the city where he was holding this meeting, there was a state institution for deaf and mute people.

They brought five men from that institute who were totally deaf and mute to this healing evangelist’s service, and he laid hands on them. Just like you’d snap your fingers, all five of them were instantly healed. They were healed in front of thousands of people.

This evangelist stopped the service right then and started taking up an offering. Then he announced to the audience, “Don’t come down here unless you’ve got at least $50 to give in the offering.”

People were running over one another to get down there to give in the offering! Now you’ve got to understand that this was back in the early ‘50s. Money was worth a lot more back then than it is now in these days of inflation. But, you see, you can’t take the things of God and use them to raise money.

And sooner or later, if people don’t judge themselves, these things are going to catch up with them.

Remember what the Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Gal. 6:7). That applies to every area of people’s lives.

I saw another miraculous healing in this man’s ministry that was confirmed by medical science. A woman came to one of his meetings on a stretcher. Her body was as stiff as a board, just like it was petrified.

It was a very rare disease, and medical science couldn’t do anything about it. If you touched her body, it felt like you just touched a piece of petrified lumber.

They brought her into the service, and when this minister laid hands on her, she was instantly healed. This minister had a marvelous healing ministry. Blind people were instantly healed. Yet the Lord said to me, “You go tell him that he’s not going to live much longer unless he judges himself.”

I went to talk to this healing evangelist, but he was busy talking to someone else at the time. By the time he finished talking to the other person, my natural mind had taken over, and I thought, He doesn’t walk in love toward the brethren. If I tell him what the Lord told me, he’s liable to slap my face. By then the evangelist had left, and I never had another opportunity to talk to him.

Three years later, my wife and I were in Los Angeles in Angelus Temple at a Voice of Healing convention. In those days, we had a Voice of Healing convention every year at Thanksgiving time. This man’s wife called the convention for prayer because the doctors said that this evangelist was dying. He was only thirty-eight years old.

Brother Lindsay announced this from the platform. He said it would hurt the healing ministry if this foremost healing minister in America died at this early age. So he invited all The Voice of Healing ministers to come up on the platform to join hands and pray for the man. I started up there to pray for him.

As I started to walk up the aisle to the platform, the Lord said to me, “Don’t go up there.” I stopped dead still, and asked, “Why not, Lord? He’s only thirty-eight years old. He’s not old enough to die.” Three years and some months had gone by, and I’d momentarily forgotten what the Lord had told me about him.

The Lord said to me, “He wouldn’t judge himself and walk in love toward his fellow ministers, so I judged him and turned him over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. You leave him alone because he’s going to die.” So I turned around and walked back up the aisle.

My wife came from another part of the building and met me as I got to the back of the auditorium. She asked, “What did the Lord say to you?”

I said, “How do you know He said anything?”

She said, “Well, you stopped dead still and turned as white as a sheet.”

So I told her what the Lord had said. That time, the Lord only mentioned the fact that this evangelist hadn’t judged himself on not walking in love toward others. Well, dying prematurely at thirty-eight years old wasn’t God’s best for him, but it sure beats going to hell!

You see, sometimes there’s a reason folks are sick and die prematurely. And before you can get them healed, sometimes you’ll have to get down to the root cause why they are sick, and they’ll need to make some adjustments.

This minister would put his tent up and hold meetings for a local church in a particular city every year. The other churches in the city would come and cooperate with him, and thousands of people would come to the meetings and get saved and healed. They’d fill up the tent and run it over with people.

But then he announced, “I’m going to build a revival center in this town,” and he built it not very far from the local church that had helped him hold the meetings.

Then one day he went to the pastor of that local church, and told him, “I’m going to start my church on your members and Brother So-and-so’s members and Brother So-and-so’s members.” And that’s exactly what he did.

Now there was nothing wrong with him starting a church in that town. But there was something wrong with him taking two hundred members from one pastor’s church, two or three hundred members from another church, and several hundred members from the largest Full Gospel church in town! But do you know what? Before he could enjoy his new church “growth,” he was dead.

You see, this evangelist worked ill to his fellow pastors. He built his new church, but he built it on the other fellow’s members. Love worketh no ill to his neighbors.

A person like that is flirting with death! This man died at an early age because he didn’t walk in love toward his brethren. And that’s exactly the reason some believers die prematurely – they are shortening their days by not walking in love. We’ve got to learn to discern the Lord’s Body – our brothers and sisters in Christ – and treat them like they are part of the Lord’s Body.

The man wouldn’t repent, so God had to judge him.

That wasn’t God’s best, but if a person won’t judge himself, he will fall under the penalty of God’s judgment. That didn’t have to happen to him. But he is the one who was responsible for it happening to him.

It’s a solemn thought to fall under the penalty of God’s judgment, isn’t it? Well, that’s why we need to think soberly on the subject of walking in love.

Remember, the Bible says that God’s love is greater than faith or hope: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity [love]” (1 Cor. 13:13). We in the Body of Christ haven’t majored on the subject of God’s love as we should have.

Romans 12:9
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Sometimes we read this verse, but we don’t stop and think about what it means. The word “dissimulation” means to pretend or pretension. A lot of people pretend they love you, but it doesn’t show up in facts. What do I mean by that? They say, “I sure do love you,” but you don’t dare turn your back on them! They are just pretending that they love you.

Romans 12:10
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour PREFERRING ONE ANOTHER.
