The Judging Spirit of the Self-Will

Judging is a key characteristic of our self-will that is in opposition to God. Here I talk about that spirit, the pervasiveness, vastness of it and what being free means and entails for our lives.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Another good word. I needed to hear the part about a judgmental spirit. I definitely need more to be led by the Spirit of God and less by my own self-will. Pray for me in that. God bless you and may His anointing continue to rest on you.

    • Hi Greg, this judging spirit is one that infects every dimension of our lives as it is an central part of the self-will and thus when we are freed from it, amazing transformations occur. I pray this for all of us, and certainly will be praying specifically for you. 🙂

      • “Ye judge after the flesh (human standard); I judge no man. 16And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. 17It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.”- John 8

        I’m a firm believer and witness of the awesome, power of the love of God. God worked literal miracles in my life… but the best of all, is the spirit He put in me. I bore the fruits of the spirit… and I want to be one with me Father, in spirit in this world, so when the Kingdom of God comes…. I could worship Him and love Him even more profoundly and my brothers and sisters.

        I go around and spreading the gospel at times…to almost any one, and their ere times were I was rudely handled. I know why their is sin and whom fault it really is. Spiritually, I can feel the love I had… waning. I will always love my LORD, but in love I feel stagnate.

        I will share also, when I try to look pass this world and see God’s love and see the world, with that love in mind. The sins of this world pop in… and my heart aches. Its appears to be tougher to keep focus on the LORD character because of that.

        With respect I share what my heart believes when the spirit speaketh forth from you, it is express with your amazing God made individuality. I believe many don’t know that the scriptures were written with the men fill with the spirit of God individuality included. Apostle Peter is a fisher man, he writes with that background from his life, Apostle Paul is a scholar, he writes like a scholar. A prophet of the LORD Ellen G. White in her book education, says.. true education isn’t regurgitation from a teacher…. but a free thinking individual where their character can grow as well as wisdom.

        quote:
        “True education means more than pursuing a certain course of study. It has to do with the whole person, and with the whole period of existence possible to human beings. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers.

        The source of such an education is brought to view in these inspired words that point to the Infinite One: In Him “are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3. The world has had its great teachers, men and women of giant intellect and extensive research, people who have stimulated thought and opened to view vast fields of knowledge. But there is One who stands higher than they. As heavenly bodies in our solar system shine by the reflected light of the sun, so, as far as their teaching is true, do the world’s great thinkers reflect the rays of the Sun of Righteousness. Every gleam of thought, every flash of the intellect, is from the Light of the world.

        In these days much is said concerning the nature and importance of “higher education.” The true “higher education” is that which is imparted by Him out of whose mouth “come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6.

        All true knowledge and real development have their source in a knowledge of God. Wherever we turn, in the physical, mental, or spiritual realms; in whatever we observe and study, apart from the blight of sin, this knowledge is revealed. Whatever line of investigation we pursue with a sincere purpose to arrive at truth, we are brought in touch with the unseen mighty Intelligence that is working in and through all. The human mind is brought into communion with the mind of God, the finite with the Infinite. In this communion is found the highest education. It is God’s own method of development. “Acquaint yourself with Him” (Job 22:21) is God’s message to the human family. The method outlined in these words was the method followed in the education of Adam and Eve.”- True Education, Page 9 Ellen G. White

      • Hi Jedi of Christ,

        Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’m working through your posts, you are quite the prolific writer. Please have patience with me as there is a lot of things transitioning in my reality. 🙂

        I agree about the source of all wisdom and knowledge. I gave up seeking knowledge from a lot of other sources and focused on the Spirit of Truth to teach me – to be my primary teacher in all things .. and I’ve found he teaches us and leads us to what we need to know (if necessary in other resources) perfectly for our purpose, our soul journey, and the understanding he desires to reveal of himself, as the spirit reflection of our eternal Father.

        I wanted to share what I learned about what you wrote:

        If we possess a lot of fear in a particular area in our life, it reveals we possess little truth in that area as well. We may know a lot of things about a lot of things, temporal knowledge, but if our understanding resides in a low-love soul then we actually know less than we might think. Someone may possess less temporal knowledge yet possess a higher awareness of love, thus be more aligned to absolute truth at the soul level.

  2. Please forgive my typos, I should have proof read. =)

  3. love you rachel ❤
