THROUGH EYES of FIRE SERIES #14
BY: DANIEL YORDY
JUDGMENT in HEAVEN
To understand judgment, we must define two other things: consequence and mercy. Just as jumping off a high
Yet God, moving out from Love, would have mercy. But mercy is easier said than done. It is easy for God to
Here is a man plummeting to his death because he has severed himself from life. The hand of God extends mercy
The consequence is certain – death. You see, the only other option is life, and life is God, and God cannot force
So, what is God to do? Just let people die because they will not regard His mercy?
Judgment is the vanguard of mercy. Judgment goes before to prepare the way that mercy might follow.
Judgment and the Curse are two very different things. Judgment is the first part of God come to us; the curse is
From the human point of view, judgment and curse look the same; they are not. The problem is that people
Now, a man can see judgment as curse and, in the end, merge it together with the curse in accusation against
The curse, in all of its forms, including death, is not the desire of God; it is the certain consequence of living as a
Judgment, whatever it looks like, is the holy desire of God extending mercy.
Those who say, “God is love; He won't send judgment to anyone,” are saying that God will simply let people die
A wonderful example of the extreme value of judgment in a man's life is the movie, “It's a Wonderful Life” with
A man has everything a man could want in life, but he does not know the value of what he has. Then he loses it
There is curse and there is judgment. They may look similar, but they are utterly opposed. Curse is the enemy of
Consider a man, arrogant, proud, boastful, filled with the conceit of self. What will save him from death? Facing
the certain inevitability of death – consequence – will such a man reach for mercy? Not even! And so, out from the
But judgment is always and only for a specific purpose; judgment is not God's first choice. As God's full will is
The Bible is filled with judgment verses and it is filled with blessing verses. Though part of God, the judgment
Pastor Joel is one who has a bent towards the blessing verses. He teaches what God says; every blessing verse is
In contrast, those who have a bent towards the judgment verses do not just ignore blessing; rather, they speak
God is all about blessing and abundance; sometimes He sends judgment to pave the way for His abundance.
As sons of God at this time, we go forward seeing clearly the extreme difference between judgment and curse.
identical, and they will curse God for both. Yet curse is their own doing, and judgment is God's love in them.
Without judgment there can be no mercy.
Forgiveness of sins is terrible. A man must see his sin as it is in order to know forgiveness. There is nothing more
To say, “Oh, it's okay, raping that little girl was no big deal. God just forgives everybody,” is to be far away from
God. If a rapist buys into that lie, nothing can save him from the curse. In complete contrast, the forgiveness of God
And if God “just forgave everybody” in that way, what would God Himself say to the little girl. “It was no big
God requires justice.
God's justice first sends judgment to make mercy possible. If judgment does not win a man's heart, then God
And the rapist who found mercy in the terror of judgment? I am convinced that in the ages to come, out of that
God is just.
Some will need many ages of time to meet the requirements of God's justice.
Being a son of God does not remove us from the requirements of God's justice in any way. In fact, being a son of
You see, God does not want us to live by the law, for that is only death for us. But the law is still of God. And
All things will be brought back into a correct balance. All things will be restored.
You see, that's part of why the “Christian” concept of God's “banishing the lost to a state of eternal hopelessness
God's justice cannot be denied.
But as sons of God in this hour, we must move forward in the wisdom and understanding of this God who fills
us full. Judgment goes forth in three different directions. We must understand each of the three and how each
differs from the other.
Understand the implications of “filled with all the fullness of God.” That means that whatever God does,
All judgment flows out as the first part of the God who fills us with all that He is. All judgment is pure and holy
Judgment is the enemy of death. Judgment causes death to cease. Life causes death to cease; judgment is
First judgment comes to each individual person as an individual without reference to anything or anyone else.
Second judgment comes upon the rulers of heaven, the principalities and powers in the spiritual realms.
And third judgment comes upon the rulers of earth, the men and women who manipulate and control others for
their own gain. A pastor in a church who abuses his flock for his own gain is in the exact same category as a dictator
Judgment must come upon the rulers of heaven before it can come upon the rulers of earth. The demon ruling
that abusive pastor must be broken before the pastor can find brokenness.
God is so kind; that's why He comes as judgment to everyone. He wants everyone to know mercy.
Let's start with the judgment that must come upon the rulers of heaven, the principalities and powers in the
And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. . .
This is a profoundly meaningful statement. Most read it as incidental, but it cannot be incidental. This is an
Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God. . . You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
“You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. By the abundance of your trading you became filled with violence within, and you sinned; therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God; and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the fiery stones.
“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you. You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trading; therefore I brought fire from your midst; it devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you. All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; you have become a horror, and shall be no more forever.”’”
The first time I used the word “Lucifer” in my letters, I received a fiery reply from a good brother who is a leader
People do not know the heavens. They do not know a Spirit word, because they choose to remain in the outer
Nothing exists upon the earth except that thing comes out from a spirit reality in the heavens. There is no earthly
If there are wicked persons in the earth, their wickedness can come only out of wicked persons in the heavens.
Now, if this brother would humble himself and allow Jesus to immerse him into the Holy Spirit, allowing that
These verses from Ezekiel 28 are clearly a Spirit Word, using earthly symbols to open our understanding to
Now, I say these things in order to bring in Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14, because, as Chris Welch often says, part of
Judgment deals with first things.
...Take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say: “How the oppressor has ceased, the golden city ceased! The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers; he who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he who ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted and no one hinders...
“Sheol from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. They all shall speak and say to you: ‘Have you also become as weak as we? Have you become like us? Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, and the sound of your stringed instruments; the maggot is spread under you, and worms cover you.’
“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.
“Those who see you will gaze at you, and consider you, saying: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities, who did not open the house of his prisoners?’”
Again, reading through these words, it is impossible for me to comprehend how people can read them and not
My intention is to bring in a full picture. The serpent is never alone; he is always accompanied by hosts of
And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born...
And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him... Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. . .
So it was, when they brought out those kings to Joshua that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the captains of the men of war who went with him, “Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings.” And they drew near and put their feet on their necks. Then Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the Lord will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.”
But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
I am putting all of these verses here in this way for us to have before our eyes a clear picture.
An essential element of our knowledge of God at this end of the age, a knowledge intended by God for us, is the
How, exactly, do we defeat the accuser? We defeat him by speaking Christ our only life, by persisting in that
I would testify to you as filled with Christ as I can be, that this seeing is utterly different from most Christian
For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.
Inside the church age, this present age of Christ-in-part in which we live, the writer of Hebrews said,
Yet the Covenant we signed with God requires God to crush the accuser permanently under our feet.
I have no stomach for people who are planning for death to execute them, but who also say, “Well, Jesus has already won; we are already resurrected; Satan is already fully defeated.”
How can anyone be satisfied with such trite when all iniquity stomps cruelty across this earth. Yes, it is all
We will know all-fullness by no demons in the heavens of this earth, by no rule of wicked men, by resurrected
I am in no way separate from Jesus nor He from me. If He does it; I do it. If I do it; He does it. Jesus and I are one.
Judgment begins in heaven before it can show itself upon the earth.
The judgment of God against Adam was Abraham. All Adam has to do to know his own folly is to look at
The judgment against the accuser is the sons of God.
The serpent is a heavenly being at the present moment. He does not have an earthly form. Yet Revelation 12
What this means for sure, I do not know. I do know that the entertainment industries are preparing all mankind
Yet we must reckon with the possibility that some “people” upon this planet, particularly those psychopathic
What is the thing that causes this great shift in the reality of heaven/earth?
And where is this judgment found?
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, by the word of their testimony, and by not loving their lives to the one death of Christ.
As we continue to speak Christ our only life, we are altering the fabric of the universe.
The ax is laid to the root.
Now, I want to get as practical as I can.
I have posited three arenas of judgment and three arenas of speaking the prophetic Word of Christ. Let's match
And speaking the prophetic Word of Christ as a blessing upon all others is the judgment of God coming to each
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
The goodness of God leads you to repentance.
Wrath is directed only towards the systems of darkness binding people with chains, the false identities, the
Judgment on earth is coming up in another chapter. Judgment in the form of goodness I will leave for a

I have reduced the wording so we can see exactly what God says about this covering cherub. I don't understand it
The argument that this is speaking of some individual man descended from Adam, or even Adam himself, was
In fact, just as God created horses to be man's primary servant in the earth, so He created Lucifer and other
Our desire is to break evil where it began, to cast this accuser, the original serpent, the heavenly dragon, Satan,
When accusation is cast down, it has a short time to vent its fury in the earth, as part of God's judgment upon
human government, upon the nations, and then all accusation ceases.
Understand that we are speaking of the words,
It is Christ, the Word God speaks who is spoken against. Accusation is the speaking of anti-Christ.
not speak the truth.”
As we speak Christ against all accusation, against all anti-Christ, we are casting down the accuser.
Listen, this is for real; it is, in fact, the gospel.
From the moment I began to speak Christ as me to myself, in early spring of 2008, from that moment a more
From the very start I knew without question that I was engaged fully in the fulfillment, not only of
I knew that my winning all victory against all accusation is the cause of the fury of darkness being released now
It was Paul who said that God crushes the accuser under out feet; it's an essential part of the gospel. Revelation
An essential part of our mission, of the sending of God, is to cast every ounce and shadow of accusation out of
our minds and hearts. Any form of “I wish” is an expression of the accuser. Any shadow of seeing ourselves as other
We do not allow the accuser to mock Jesus; we do not allow him to mock us. We refuse to see anything but
“Did God indeed say” is the true nature of the accusation we hear, but it comes to us in the form of: “You are not Christ.” We see the cross and we say, “I am.” It comes in the form of: “Look at your sin.” We see the blood and we say, “I do not know sin.” It comes in the form of: “Who do you think you are.” We see the resurrection and we say, “I am Christ. All that He is, I am. All that I find myself to be in the present moment, is He.”
We dance for joy in the middle of ruin. We see Jesus only, though we are blind as a bat. We declare His absolute
And as we do so kingdoms of darkness all through the heavens are reeling, they are shattering, they are giving
way. Rank after rank of Michael's forces are breaking through. At the appointed moment, all heavenly darkness
Then judgment begins in the earth. Once the evil of heaven is broken, God in us now turns His attention to the
evil powers of earth.
Before we continue on with judgment, however, we must look at two things. We must have a clearer view of the
