THE LAW KEEPERS



RIGHTEOUS  JUDGMENTS

WILL BE THE ORDER

OF

GOD’s  RIGHTEOUS KINGDOM

 

“Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s:  and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.”

Deuteronomy 1:17

 

“With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:  for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”

Isaiah 26:9

 

“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice:  for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.”

Isaiah 56:1

Although I have made mention of GOD’s Commandment to use “Righteous Judgment,” in many of the Messages posted on The LawKeepers WebSite, I have never devoted a Message specifically to this topic until now.  And I hasten to share with you GOD’s Law and HIS Word in this regard.

 

“Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:”   Exodus 23:2

 

“Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein:  I am the LORD your God.

 

”Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments:  which if a man do, he shall live in them:  I am the LORD.”   Leviticus 18:4,5

 

“And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do:  for ye judge not for man, but FOR THE LORD, WHO IS WITH YOU IN THE JUDGMENT.”   II Chronicles 19:6

 

We know that we must keep GOD’s Book of the Law, but we do not give much consideration to observing GOD’s Judgments.  O yes, I know well that we cannot keep hardly any of them under the present circumstances.  But then do we give thought to the ones that we can carry out?   We know that we should not be involved with evildoers.  We know that we should not be involved with corruption.  We know that we should not be spiritually joined with those who are connected to false worship, false doctrines, and false gods.  And we know that we should not strengthen the hands of those who do not follow GOD’s Book of the Law.  Those of us who seek to follow the Most High GOD of Israel must be circumspect, honest, and Righteous according to GOD’s Standards and HIS Ways of “Righteousness.”  Otherwise, are we really representing the Holy ONE and being accepted by HIM?

 

For so very long we have been misguided and misinformed and led astray by every religion, leader, and imagination of man’s evil heart.  But if we just use GOD’s “Righteous Judgments,” a most important factor in HIS Book of the Law, no way can we be deceived or duped into following that which is not pertinent to GOD’s Ways.  And then, through keeping GOD’s Ways, without a doubt, we are assured of sustaining Righteousness in our midst if we use “Righteous Judgments.”  No doubt this is what’s most important of all!   “…So thou shalt put the evil away from among you.”  Just that simple!  You see, the Holy ONE wants us to be a “Holy” People, so that we are worthy of having HIM as Our GOD and having HIM dwell among us. 

 

Therefore, according to the Scripture presented herewith and throughout this Message, it is imperative that we not only learn about and follow GOD’s Book of the Law in order to be a Righteous People, but we must also use “Righteous Judgment,” sever relations with those leaders and followers known to sin against GOD’s Law, and sustain a Righteous Environment in all our dwellings.  We must always ask ourselves if our behavior is acceptable to Our GOD.   Isn’t this what fearing the Holy ONE of Israel is all about?

 

“Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation:  for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

 

“My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.”   Isaiah 51:4,5

 

“And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd:  they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.”

Ezekiel 37:24

 

“Every word of God is pure:  he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

 

“Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”  

Proverbs 30:5,6

 

WHERE THERE IS NO JUDGMENT…

 

“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth:  for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.”

Habakkuk 1:4

 

“Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:  and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.:”

Isaiah 59:15

 

“The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings:  they have made them crooked paths:  whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

 

”We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves:  we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.”

Isaiah 59:8, 11

 

“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.”

Isaiah 59:14

 

“There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.”

Isaiah 48:22

 

“And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

 

“I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart:  and ye shall sow, your seed in vain for your enemies shall eat it.”   Leviticus 26:15,16

 

The Holy ONE did not lie!  Every curse HE had written in HIS Book, HE put on us and then some!  And all because we refused and continue to refuse to listen to HIM to be OBEDIENT to HIS Laws, Statutes, and JUDGMENTS, we yet suffer from every malady, infliction, sorrow, repression, captivity, and all manner of woes since the days of our rebellious forefathers unto this day.

 

After the Holy ONE Created Adam, even then HE gave “man” an opportunity to serve and worship HIM and to live righteously, but to no avail.  Because of “man’s” disobedience, he, excluding the fish in the sea and Noah’s family, was destroyed in the 40 day/night Flood.  After the Holy ONE made a Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and Commanded that they and their Seed keep HIS Law and serve and worship ONLY HIM, they too refused to follow GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments.  And now we are faced with another calamity that is to befall this globe.  The Most High GOD of Israel is once again about to bring HIS Judgment down on the evil and wicked doers who have wreaked havoc on this planet – evil Gentiles, as well as evil and stiffnecked Israelites – all due to a lack of recognition and acceptance of GOD’s Truth and HIS “Righteous Judgments.”

 

“Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them?  Cause them to know the abominations of their fathers.”   Ezekiel 20:4

 

Who said, “Judge not that ye be not judged?”

 

Who told that lie?  Who has the audacity to go against the Word of GOD and HIS Commandment to use Righteous Judgment?  What Gentile Nations changed all of GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments for the likes of their own?  Is this not the teachings of the “New Testament?”  Of course it is (Matthew 7:1), and this is just one more instance whereby, this “NT” book contradicts GOD’s Law and goes against GOD’s Paths of Righteousness.    And what judgment will the Most High GOD of Abraham and Moses bring down on these Peoples who have dared to defy HIM, the Creator, the All-Mighty GOD and ONLY Savior and put HIS Truth on the back burner in darkness and obscurity where it enlightens no one?

 

“Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat:  for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”   Joel 3:12

 

“The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together:  the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.

 

”Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

 

“And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”  Isaiah 13:4,6,11

 

With X-tianity there are many ways to worship JC.  With the All-Mighty GOD of Israel, there is but ONE Way to serve HIM and that is by living and doing HIS Laws, Statutes, and JUDGMENTS, so very well stipulated in HIS Book of the Law.  Hence, it is incumbent upon GOD-Fearing Israelites to acknowledge, profess, and live according to GOD’s Ways and HIS “Righteous Judgments,” and insist that others in our midst do likewise.  The reason is that those who do not declare GOD’s Law will most certainly influence and hinder those of us with desires to serve and worship the Holy ONE accordingly.

 

“Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way:  and he that hateth reproof shall die.”   Proverbs 15:10

 

“Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

 

“”For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.”  

Proverbs 24:1,2

 

“Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness:  in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.” 

Isaiah 26:10

 

“In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction:  your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.”   Jeremiah 2:30

 

GOD LOVES JUDGMENT!

 

“For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them:”

Isaiah 61:8

 

“Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them:  that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.”

Leviticus 20:22

 

“Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man;

for the judgment is God’s…”

Deuteronomy 1:17

 

The Holy ONE of Israel loves Judgment so much that HE would have saved Jerusalem had HE found even just one man executing judgment and seeking the “Truth.”

 

“Run ye to and from through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.”  Jeremiah 5:1

 

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it:  but I found none.”   Ezekiel 22:30

 

“…their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

 

“How shall I pardon thee for this?  Thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods; when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses.”   Jeremiah 5:6,7

 

If Our Holy ONE of Israel loves Judgment, then we must do all we can to make this “Law of Judgment” a part of our lives, so that it works in our favor to correct and guide us to GOD’s Paths of Righteousness.  We must do all that we can to insure the keeping of GOD’s Law and use the “Righteous Judgments” that Our GOD of Abraham loves, as this is our purpose for being.  With the keeping of GOD’s Ways is our Deliverance and our report to the World of HIS Truth (Isaiah 43:21).

 

“And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those:  the wayfaring men, though fools shall not err therein.

 

“No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there;

 

“And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads:  they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”   Isaiah 35:8 – 10

 

The Holy ONE of Israel hears those who seek HIM in Truth to follow HIS Ways of Righteousness.  And because HE made a Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, HE makes it a point to inform HIS Covenant People of HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments.  This HE did when the Children of Israel came out of Egypt, when they came out of Babylonian captivity, and HE is doing so yet again for the descendants of the Biblical Israelites – those of us who wish to return to HIS Book of the Law in Truth and in Righteousness.

 

“And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt show them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.”  Exodus 18:20

 

“For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.”   Ezra 7:10

 

Our Merciful GOD of Israel tells us that HE will give us pastors according to HIS Heart if we will only be obedient:

 

“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you:  and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

 

“And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”  Jeremiah 3:14,15

 

And you can believe that these “Pastors” will not relent from teaching us GOD’s Book of the Law and HIS “Righteous Judgments.”  It would appear that we won’t get the full understanding of just how we are to walk GOD’s Paths of Righteousness until we are gathered from the lands of our captivity.  But will we have Righteous JUDGES, as well?

 

“And I WILL RESTORE THY JUDGES as at the first, and thy counselors as at the beginning:  afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

 

“Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.”  Isaiah 26,27

 

Perhaps now we can see just how important and significant it is to use the good Judgments that Our GOD of Israel gave us, as obviously, they are for our benefit and for sustaining a Righteous Way of Life for the good of Israelites, for the Strangers joined unto us, and above all for GOD’s Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“And they [the Priests] shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

 

“And in controversy they [the Priests] shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments:  and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my Sabbaths.”   Ezekiel 44:(15)23,24

 

“And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you:  for the LORD is a God of judgment:  blessed are all they that wait for him.”  Isaiah 30:18

 

“He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth:  and the isles shall wait for his law.”  Isaiah 42:4

 

Indeed, GOD’s “Righteous Judgments” will yet be a major part of this “New World System” – GOD’s Kingdom on this Earth.  Until Our GOD puts HIS Law in our hearts, these Judgments will be our means of keeping our heart and soul squeaky clean of all iniquity and of that which Our GOD hates.  Out of Fear of the Most High GOD of Israel and a DESIRE to live Righteously and in HIS Peace, we will gladly use HIS Judgments if this will cause us to be rid of our enemies and be returned to our heritage.  And don’t let us forget for one moment that we want to be spared when the Holy ONE of Israel deals with the Rulers of this present World System – just another very good reason to use “Righteous Judgment.”

 

“With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:  for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”   Isaiah 26:9

 

“Seek ye the LORD all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness:  it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.”  Zephaniah 2:3

 

“Many seek the ruler’s favor; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD.” 

Proverbs 29:26

 

Many, many Israelites will turn to the Holy ONE of Israel to Fear HIM and to keep HIS Book of the Law.  And our reward will be sensational.

 

“And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else:  and my people shall never be ashamed.

 

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”  Joel 2:27,28

 

“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains:  for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.”  

Isaiah 49:13

 

This time, we will hear, be obedient, and serve and worship the Holy ONE of Israel in Truth and in Righteousness.  And we will demand the “Righteous Judgment” that Our GOD of Israel loves.  We will use “Righteous Judgments” because the Seed of King David will accomplish it:

 

“And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

 

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall EXECUTE JUDGMENT and justice in the earth.”   Jeremiah 23:3,5

 

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

 

“And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

 

“But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth:  and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.”   Isaiah 11:1,2,4

 

“O house of David, thus saith the LORD, thus saith the LORD; EXECUTE JUDGMENT in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.”   Jeremiah 21:12

 

“And say, Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that enter in by these gates:

 

“Thus saith the LORD, Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.”   Jeremiah 22:2,3

 

“Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:”   Zechariah 7:9

 

But, my People, let’s not let others mistake meekness for weakness, as we stand bold as a lion for GOD’s Truth.  We cannot afford to be deceived and persuaded to turn from GOD’s Ways!

 

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth:  but the righteous are bold as a lion.”   Proverbs 28:1

 

“These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:

 

“And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbor; and love no false oath:  for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.”   Zechariah 8:16,17

 

THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL LOOKS AT THE HEART

 

Our GOD of Israel has always looked at the heart to see who is sincere and who is not, to see who is good and compassionate enough to govern, who is encouraged and fearless to stand for Righteousness, and who will serve HIM in HIS Holy Temple and lead HIS People down HIS Paths of Righteousness.  And those HE chooses will be proved to be worthy, upright, and honorable for representing HIM and leading HIS People.

 

“…for the LORD seeth not as man seeth: for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”   I Samuel 16:7

 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”  Isaiah 55:8

 

“…O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart,…”   Jeremiah 11:20

 

And during these “latter days” know assuredly that Our GOD will again prove HIS People, Israel, and deal with us for our unrighteousness:

 

“For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee:  though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee:  but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.”   Jeremiah 30:11

 

“And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.

 

“And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people; and there will I plead with you face to face.

 

“LIKE AS I PLEADED WITH YOUR FATHERS IN THE WILDERNESS OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD.

 

“And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:

 

“And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me; I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel:  and ye shall know that I am the LORD.”   Ezekiel 20:34 – 38

 

And those of us who will be found worthy, will be blessed with GOD’s Laws and HIS Spirit in our hearts and will delight in Our Savior:

 

“For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

 

“Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean:  from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

 

“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:  and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

 

“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, AND YE SHALL KEEP MY JUDGMENTS, AND DO THEM.”  Ezekiel 36:24 – 27

 

All of us still might not realize the significance of using “Righteous Judgment,” but thelawkeepers Forum and thelawkeepersyahoogroup has certainly taken a first step in this regard by not permitting believers in JC and the “New Testament” to influence those of us who have accepted the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS teachings for Israelites to follow.   Our next step is to steer clear of all others who teach from the imaginations of their hearts and who do not profess GOD’s Law as being our True and ONLY Way of Life.  And unfortunately, we must realize that there are even many Israelites professing use of this “New Testament” and belief in JC.  It’s up to us to be able to discern what is GOD’s Righteousness and what is not.  It’s not difficult to determine who Fears YIHOVAH to DO HIS Will, as these “special ones” talk it and walk it!  And fret not, for Our GOD will make it known to us whose lead to follow. 

 

“And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them:  and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.”   Jeremiah 23:4

 

“Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and MY JUDGMENTS:  which if a man do, he shall live in them:  I AM THE LORD.”   Leviticus 18:4

 

Since we are made aware of that which Our GOD will do, let us use wisdom and learn to execute “Righteous Judgment” and remove ourselves away from those who do not acknowledge GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments to do them.

 

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:  I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

 

“A forward heart shall depart from me:  I will not know a wicked person.

 

“Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me:  he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

 

“He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house:  he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.“   Psalm 101:3,4,6,7

 

Let us who Fear the Holy ONE of Israel draw near unto Our Savior.  Let us put total trust in this Our Deliverer.  Let us declare ALL HIS Truth, HIS Law, and HIS Judgments and Fear no one but HIM to speak of HIS Righteousness! 

 

“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” Isaiah 40:29

 

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee:  be not dismayed; for I am thy God:  I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

 

“For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

 

“Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”   Isaiah 41:10,13,14

 

Again and again, I urge all who are fed up with this present World System to come together under GOD’s Book of the Law as it is written, AS OUR GOD HAS COMMANDED OF US, so that we can appeal to HIM to re-establish HIS People and HIS Heritage for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.  Why wait until Our GOD afflicts us in order to cause us to return to HIM.  This is so unnecessary, as we have suffered enough!

 

“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face:  in their affliction they will seek me early.”   Hosea 5:15

 

Let us seek Our GOD with our whole heart and soul right now!  Let us get HIS attention by coming together, fasting and praying in sincerity for the Deliverance of the Nation of Israel!  HIS Law and HIS Word to HIS Prophets has not changed and it will never change!

 

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:  but THE WORD OF OUR GOD SHALL STAND FOR EVER.”  Isaiah 40:8

 

OUR GOD OF ISRAEL AWAITS US

TO RETURN TO HIM AND TO HIS LAW!

 

“Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb FOR ALL ISRAEL, with the STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS.”

Malachi 4:4

 

“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them.  Return unto me, and I will return unto you,

saith the LORD of hosts…”

Malachi 3:7

 

LET US EXALT YIHOVAH AND HIS BOOK OF THE LAW BEFORE THE WORLD IN TRUTH AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR EVERMORE!

 

Tziona Yisrael,

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake
