The Words of the Williams Family

Separation of Good from Evil

Elizabeth Williams
February 1972

Judgement is the separation of good from evil within us. There are many references to judgement in the Bible; for example Isaiah says (11:4): "He shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked..."

Also John says (12:48): "the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day."

It is plain that judgement will be by the word. In the time of Jesus this was apparent, for Jesus raised Lazarus by his words and Peter caused Ananias and Sapphira to die by his words. Judgement in the Completed Testament age will be much more powerful for complete truth has been revealed. Another difference between judgement then and now is that Jesus did not encourage people to judge. He said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged," but our Leader says the opposite.

Therefore, the medium through which one receives judgement is the word, and the mode of delivery is usually through chastisement. There are two reasons why chastisement is used. First, to cut those spirits that are with us. It is usual when we have a problem that we lay a base in our minds for spirits with similar problems to be attracted to us. They only hinder our progress. After we have been chastised and they have left we feel as though a weight had been lifted from us, and we can think more clearly. Hence we see that God's love is often aggressive. Just as a mother would reprimand her son severely for playing in a dangerous place, so God often handles us sternly in an attempt to rescue us from Satan's hold.

In the Family, members are continually receiving judgement, but the extent of the severity of it differs from one to another. When a new member comes into the Family he is not usually judged until he has gained confidence and a feeling of security in his new environment, (the only exception is when he has many bad spirits with him.) When we are first judged it is not usually very severe; however, later we are judged on the same point in a deeper way. The strength of the judgement depends on our endeavor and willingness to change. A humble person who is ambitious for God and eager to change will not receive such heavy judgement as the stubborn prideful person who never listens from heart.

Father does not use anyone to act as a judge unless they have a strong desire to push others closer to Him and ahead of themselves, and feel desperate on seeing Satan trying to take people back into his kingdom. Such people are those who feel Father's Heart.

Those who judge from the wrong motive, such as pride or- spitefulness, are being Satanic. This is a dangerous way to act, because when a person judges he will always be judged: if one judges wrongly, then judgement back is heavy. Therefore, one should not be afraid to judge, but allow God to work through us. How else can members of the Family grow -- certainly not by receiving continual sweet-talk with no mention of one's faults. When one feels inspired by Father, words and emotion come spontaneously and however much anger one expresses one feels great peace within.

Our attitude to judgement should be that it is our best friend. We should welcome it and not take it personally. For just as a child of five years has not the knowledge and experience the same as a child of ten years to understand why certain decisions are made, certain conditions set, and certain rules enforced, so man, while spiritually immature, cannot comprehend many things. If we are judged wrongly and accept it, it is to out merit. If the judge was wrong, then he will pay indemnity, but not so great as the indemnity one pays for rebelling against judgement. Satan tells us that we are not wrong. However, it is important to realize that 99% of the time we are wrong. If we accept this as being true and we say to Father, "I'm sorry. I am wrong but I will try and do right. Please show me more deeply how wrong I am," -- if we say this, Father can work and always show us many things.

The way is not easy, and often we cannot see clearly ahead and do not want to look at what is behind. But Leader has paved the way. Of course, we do not understand many things, if it were within the power of fallen man's logic we would have reached perfection long ago. But God's logic is not man's. So to pass judgement we need faith, obedience, reverence, and love. Love is concern for others. In such a frame of mind we will pass through judgement, backing up our concern with service in the physical world: we must serve Father and our brothers and sisters.
