The BIG TV

I want to talk about the judgment of Jesus, again. This picture that I saw about His righteous judgment came after reading Rick Joyner's vision "The Hordes of Hell are Marching". In this picture I saw ourselves, one at a time standing before Jesus with the "Cloud of Witnesses" all round about. I then saw the Lord allowing us and everyone else to see incidents of our life. It was like we all were watching " a big screen TV". As we were all watching and seeing this incident playing out, we were also able to hear the motives of our heart at the same time. We were watching the big screen TV; and at the same time everyone was aware of what was happening in our hearts. The physical outside actions were being made to known to everyone including our selves, but we were also aware of our innermost thoughts as well. An example of this would be, if the big screen TV was showing an occasion where we were helping an older lady across the street. The big screen would show the actions of us doing the good deed. At the same time our innermost motives would be laid bare. If we were helping the other person, so that others would see and think we were a good person; this would be shown to all. If our motive was truly to help another person,  this is what all would see. The Lord is going to judge after the heart. The outside action of what we really did is important, but more important is the attitude of our heart. Were we acting out of genuine love or out of self? The Bible is full of examples that depict this type of wonderful judgement.


Matthew 5:21-22 "You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to the judgment'. But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, 'Raca' is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, 'You fool' will be in danger of the fire of hell."

We know we are not supposed to murder, but here He speaks about even just being angry with our brother or sister. We all at times, have been angry with others, and sometimes have even said some words that sound a lot like "you fool', or even worse. These matters are serious and are not the way of love. Jesus was so concerned about it that He brings it up here to help us understand that we are to act in love all the time with those around about us. We are not to get angry with another for whatever reason. He said that others would know we were Christians because of our love for one another. As soon as we get angry or put ourselves above others by calling them fools, we are placing ourselves in situations that will not look good on the big screen TV. The person we were angry with will be there and see our innermost thoughts and words played out. There will be no secrets; everything that is hidden will be shouted from the housetops. Luke 12: 3&4 " There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the rooftops."


Matthew 5:23&24 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; and then come and offer your gift." It is a good thing to offer gifts up to the Lord. But while there in that quiet place before Him, He is often able to speak to us. He wants us to go that person and be reconciled to them. I had always taken this verse to mean that if I had something against my brother, then I was to go my brother. But the verse very clearly goes beyond that expectation and says that if I know that my brother has ought against me that I am obligated to go to that person and get reconciled. It does not matter who did what wrong! What matters is that love is not flowing one to another.

I'll tell a story on Lori (my beautiful wife) and myself. Back when we were first married, one day Lori and I got into a little "tiff". I can't even remember what it was about, but I do remember that I was right! We were laying in bed with each other, not talking to each other. Have you been there and had this happen to you? Well, in the middle of my self-righteous attitude, the Lord intervened. I remember so clearly the thoughts that He placed in my mind. He was upset that I was not loving my wife. I explained that she was the one who was wrong and that I was right and couldn't He see that. It was so clear that Lori was wrong and that I was justified in not giving in. He then clearly made it known that I was guilty of stopping the flow of love and that made me in the wrong. He was not concerned about who was right, but that love had been stopped. He then told me to apologize to her. I gasped and said "Me, she is in the wrong and needs to apologize to me". He then told me that He was holding me responsible because I had allowed love to stop flowing between us. I pondered these things for awhile and then apologized to my wonderful wife. She melted. She then asked my forgiveness and love was restored. It is not so important as to who did what to who first, as it is as to who allowed love to stop flowing. Jesus wants His love to flow between us with those around us, and especially to our loved ones. During the showing of the big screen TV, many of these occurrences in our lives with our loved ones will be shown to all. The episodes that happen in the home where no one else can see what is really going on; will be made public for all to see. The Lord wants us to choose the way of Love now.


Matthew 5:27&28: "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." This verse cuts to the heart of the matter. These thoughts, these ideas will be broadcast upon the big screen TV. They will be shown for all to see, including the one to whom we were thinking these thoughts. I am afraid that there will be great deal of shame over some of our thoughts. Many of us will protest and say that we never knew it was wrong to think these ways. All thoughts that come into our head are not going to get us into trouble, but the temptations that we entertain and allow to grow in our hearts and our heads will. Temptations will always be there, but the problem starts; when we decide to entertain the temptation. These innermost thoughts will be broadcast in living colour for all to see; even your mother will get to see them! The lord wants to purify us and make us like Himself. We need His purifying blood to cleanse us of all unrighteousness, even down to our very thoughts.


Ecclesiastes10:20 "Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say." Many times in scripture birds represent evil spirits. In this case if you think bad thoughts, often an evil spirit will carry your thoughts and tell them to the person you were thinking them about.

I'll tell a story that happened to me a long time ago. I was boarding in a home where there was a daughter of around 15 years old. On one occasion when I was going downstairs to my room; as I passed her in the hall, I heard her thoughts in my mind. (sent by birds of the air - demons). Lustful thoughts, thoughts of wanting to be together alone with me. I was shocked. Then it was like the Lord showed me that when we think those kinds of thoughts, that the thoughts actually cango to the other person via demons. The other person is made aware of our innermost thoughts. For example, when women are walking on the street, and men are leering and having lustful thoughts. Demons take these thoughts and fly them from the men to the woman. Some women are good at putting shields to guard against these thoughts, but there are no secrets.


Lots of time that person will get disturbed about your thoughts and they will think bad ones back and the evil spirit will carry them back to you. "Well then, if that is the way they think, well here is what I think", etc. etc. These thoughts can go back and forth so many times that when you see the person again; you can not look the person in the eye. The enemy has won and love has lost. Who do you think is trying to destroy love on this earth and who do you think is trying to restore love to the earth, and who do think will actually win in this great battle - our Lord Jesus will conquer! Therefore let Him start winning in your life now!  Matthew chapter 6 is full of references that helps to explain this concept. Jesus repeatedly said, "Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you".
