Question? What did Jesus mean I Judge him not in John 12:47?
John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
In Chp 3 V17 of John Jesus said…
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
In both of these verses at the end Jesus stated that he came to SAVE THE WORLD.
The Lord Jesus came the first time for the MAIN PURPOSE to Die and shed his blood on the cross TO PAY for every persons sins.
What Jesus meant when he stated in in John 12:47 “If any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not”. he CAME NOT to Judge them for their degree of punishment that every lost person WILL RECIEVE at the Great White Throne Judgement AT THIS TIME because Jesus came to Save Sinners.
Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
