True Word of Yah: The Many Definitions of Judge

Updated: Jul 10, 2018

This lesson is going to clear up what Judging others means, When we Are to Use Judgement and Who will be Judged In the End as well as define the word Judge in both Hebrew and Greek as well as modern English.

Matthew 7 Is Taken out of Context 100% of the Time: And I will prove it to you.

Matthew 7:1-5

1Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

***Verse 5 Must accompany the 1st verse inorder for the Context of the meaning: Judge not, that ye be judged. YOu Must Be Reconciled Before Passing Judgement onto others, otherwise you are a hypocrite.
