Judgments from God on People in the New Testament
God does NOT change! He brought judgment against sin in the Old Testament and He brought judgment against sin in the New Testament! And, although so many people in today's world thinks differently, God shall bring judgment against sin in today's world too!
There are radical "Hate Crimes" laws that threatens to treat pastors, teachers, ministries, and just plain godly people as an "accessory" to acts of violence against people who engage in ungodly and immoral behavior. This law clearly threatens religious freedom!!
Zacharias, John the Baptist’s father. Background. Zacharias was a Levite priest serving at the golden altar, the place of prayer. Suddenly an angel appeared. If you saw an angel, what would you do? Your reaction would most likely be the same as Zacharias. You would be troubled and afraid.
The Message. Luke 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. [KJV] . . . Both Zacharias and Elizabeth had been a long time praying for a child. But, now when God tells him through the angel Gabriel, “I am going to give you a son,” Zacharias replies, “How do I know this?” Many people pray like this! They ask God for something, but really do not believe He is going to give it. This is one main reason we do not receive answers to our prayers. NO faith at all. Zacharias was human, and in the following verses, he is severely reprimanded and receives judgment.
His Judgment From God. Luke 1:18-20 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.  And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.  And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. [KJV] . . . Because of his doubt and unbelief, Zacharias would not be able to speak until John the Baptist’s birth. It happened!
Fulfillment. Luke 1:59-64 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.  And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.  And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.  And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.  And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.  And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. [KJV] . . . We ALL must beware of doubting God, and unbelief! It is a sin!
Ananias and Sapphira. Background. Ananias and Sapphira’s sin was lying, to GOD! Lies started way back in the Garden of Eden with the serpent (Satan, John 8:44), and continue down to today and will continue until God casts Satan into the Lake of Fire (Rev.20:10).
Acts 5:1-2 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,  And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. [KJV] . . . There was absolutely NOTHING wrong in keeping part of the money back for themselves. The problem was that they lied that the money was the total price!
Peter confronts Ananias. Acts 5:3-4 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. [KJV] . . . There are cults today who deny that the Holy Spirit is God. As you see here, Simon Peter believed that He was God. First he says, “Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost?” Then Peter says, “Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.” The Holy Spirit is God.
Fulfillment of God’s judgment on Ananias. Acts 5:5-6 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.  And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. [KJV] . . . Ananias died at God’s Hand! Sometimes judgment is delayed. In this case it was immediate!
Sapphira. Background, Judgment. Sapphira now comes in and lies to God also. Acts 5:7-10 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.  And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.  Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.  Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. [KJV] . . . Sapphira also died at God’s Hand, the same as her husband!
King Herod. Background. Acts 12:2 states bluntly that Herod killed James, the brother of John with the sword. He killed James, but Peter will be miraculously preserved (Acts 12:6-11). Herod is cold-blooded and hardhearted, with no regard for human life. By executing the men who guarded Peter (vs.19), he is stating that he does not believe Peter’s escape was an act of God. He holds the guards responsible. He kills all the soldiers who were guarding Peter. Then he goes down to Caesarea on vacation.
Judgment. Herod’s death. Acts 12:21-23 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.  And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.  And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. [KJV] . . . Herod was arrogant and proud, but a very gifted speaker. He was a politician who would have been elected no matter what party he’d run for. The people praise him as a god . . . and the Lord God is greatly displeased. Herod refused to glorify God through the miracle of Peter’s escape from prison. And then he was willing to let the people deify him. God judges him.
What a lesson we have here! Jewish historian, Josephus says of Herod . . . "And when he had been quite worn out by the pain in his belly for five days, he departed this life, being in the fifty-fourth year of his age, and in the seventh year of his reign"
Elymas, the sorcerer. Background. Elymas symbolizes satanic opposition that is always present, everywhere! The governor was under his influence. Sad to say, there are a great many rulers today who are under the influence of all kinds of cultisms which are in opposition to the Word of God and in opposition to the Gospel of Christ. Acts 13:6-8 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus:  Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.  But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. [KJV]
Warning. Acts 13:9-10 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,  And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? [KJV] . . . This is the first time that Saul is called Paul. Paul may have been a mild man in some ways, but when he encountered this kind of opposition, he exposed it with all that was in him. He accredited it to Satan and he denounced it. We, today must do the same!
Fulfillment. Acts 13:11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. [KJV] . . . Elymas was already in spiritual darkness. Now, at the Hand of Almighty God, he is in physical darkness as well. God is absolutely right in ALL His ways, and when He judges a person or group of people or a nation, He is just in doing so. God CANNOT stand sin of any kind and He will judge it in some way at some time UNLESS the person, people or nation repents. The USA should take note of God’s Hand in judgment in the past, and realize that when He states that He shall punish sin, He shall do it!
It is getting to the place where a person cannot say anything against "gays" or "homosexuals" or "lesbians" or any other immoral and perverted lifestyles. I am a teacher of God's Holy Word! I believe everything in His Book. I believe God! I also believe that God CANNOT lie! When He says something is a sin, I believe Him and I teach it that way! He clearly states that homosexuality is a SIN.
Gen.13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. [KJV]
Gen.18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; [KJV]
Lev.18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. [KJV]
Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. [KJV]
Luke 17: 28-30 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. [KJV] . . . Jesus' Words!
Romans 1:24-28 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; [KJV]
1 Timothy 1:8-10 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; [KJV]
No matter what today's society says or does or believes . . . homosexuals SHALL be punished for their SIN! God will see to that. You can count on that! God CANNOT lie!
