Scripture: Hebrews 8:7-11
Hebrews 8:10,11 says, “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” When verse 11 says, “Know the Lord,” it says to know the koo-ree-os, the Judge of all the Earth. The entire purpose of the New Testament is that every believer would not only know the Savior, but know the Judge. Knowing the Savior is the entry point. Knowing the Judge of all the Earth is not the condition of the church today. Even the most casual observer can look around the church and realize the only Jesus the church knows today is the Savior. The church does not know the Judge of all the Earth. Why doesn’t the church know the Judge of all the Earth? Because the church has been hijacked by religious spirits and by Elis and Sauls. If we want to build the fullness of Who God is into church people, this side of Jesus cannot be ignored. This truth of Jesus as Judge is neither easy to preach nor easy to hear. People are not comfortable with hearing about a Jesus who is willing to kill. Consequently the majority will never walk in an overcoming boldness like David. If we want to be a David, then we must know the God Who desires to kill our enemies. We will never tackle a Goliath if we do not know the God Who desires to kill. But once we get to know Him, nothing is impossible to us. When we know Him, there is a boldness that overcomes any fear of man. This is the Jesus the church needs in the last days.
