The role of a judge in the United States judicial system is to uphold the law and render a verdict as to the guilt or innocence of a person. When people think about Jesus' role in the investigative judgment, the role of a U.S. judge may pop into their mind. But a biblical judge does far more than render a decision. He also teaches, rules, and delivers. It is those very roles that make Christ's work in the investigative judgment endearing and necessary in order to complete the plan of salvation.
David said in Psalm 7:8, “Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to my integrity within me.” Is that the way you feel about the judgment, or do you want the Lord to judge someone else? Judge Me Please shows why the saints want to be judged. You too will want to be judged when you understand what is meant by biblical perfection, sinlessness, and righteousness as David used the term.
Judge Me Please draws a distinction between Christ's nature and ours as it explains why we cannot be as sinless as He, nor are we expected to be. It also explains what it means for His people to have the character of Christ, and how the image of Christ is to be formed in His people before He comes again, yet they will not be sinless.
Through a straightforward presentation of Bible truths and Spirit of Prophecy quotes, you will gain a broader understanding of the atonement, the investigative judgment, and by what right God can take the kingdom from the little horn and give it to the saints. After reading this book, like David, you will say, “Judge Me Please!”
