The Word that Pronounces All Judgment

Not a harsh word, is the word spoken to our condition.

There is no need.

Nor, is it a condemning word in tone or force.

Truth rejected cannot forever be avoided. There is a built-in condemnation when all the Universe cries out, "He told you so."

It is a true word.

It is a decisive word.

It is, even in judgment, a comforting word ... for truth brings a settling peace to the realm of uncertainty.

It is a sharp word as razors are sharp and leave no jagged edges.

It is a surgical incision into the tough veneer of our self-deception and ill-fitting facades.

It is the word that defines and refines.

The Word does all the judging.

That is ... truth stands as the wall that cannot be broken, the rock that will not move.

When faced with that which is other than truth, truth remains and all that is not truth is revealed for what it is.

Therefore, integrity expects to be believed, but when it is not accepted, it lets time settle the matter.

"There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day."  -John 12:48, NIV
