ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 15

15. Is Each One Judged in the End?

1. Indeed, yes! No one can escape God’s Final Judgment. Who could flee forever from the truth? But the Final Judgment will not come until it is no longer associated with fear. One day each one will welcome it, and on that very day it will be given him. He will hear his sinlessness proclaimed around and around the world, setting it free as God’s Final Judgment on him is received. This is the Judgment in which salvation lies. This is the Judgment that will set him free. This is the Judgment in which all things are freed with him. Time pauses as eternity comes near, and silence lies across the world that everyone may hear this Judgment of the Son of God:

Holy are you, eternal, free and whole, at peace forever in the Heart of God.

Where is the world, and where is sorrow now?

2. Is this your judgment on yourself, teacher of God? Do you believe that this is wholly true? No; not yet, not yet. But this is still your goal, why you are here. It is your function to prepare yourself to hear this Judgment and to recognize that it is true. One instant of complete belief in this, and you will go beyond belief to certainty. One instant out of time can bring time’s end. Judge not, for you but judge yourself, and thus delay this Final Judgment. What is your judgment of the world, teacher of God? Have you yet learned to stand aside and hear the Voice of Judgment in yourself? Or do you still attempt to take His role from Him? Learn to be quiet, for His Voice is heard in stillness. And His Judgment comes to all who stand aside in quiet listening and wait for Him.

3. You who are sometimes sad and sometimes angry, who sometimes feel your just due is not given you, and your best efforts meet with lack of appreciation and even contempt; give up these foolish thoughts! They are too small and meaningless to occupy your holy mind an instant longer. God’s Judgment waits for you to set you free. What can the world hold out to you, regardless of your judgments on its gifts, that you would rather have? You will be judged and judged in fairness and in honesty. There is no deceit in God. His promises are sure. Only remember that. His promises have guaranteed His Judgment, and His alone will be accepted in the end. It is your function to make that end be soon. It is your function to hold it in your heart and offer it to all the world to keep it safe.[1]

God’s Final Judgment upon His Son is one of love and goodwill. We are as we are created and only God’s Judgment upon us sets us free from all opposition to what is true about us.  As teachers of God, we live and teach all that is good, that is peaceful, that is so full of God’s grace and mercy there is no room for judgment and condemnation. 

In your personal devotional practice today, meditate upon the Final Judgment.  Only when we learn of God and teach of God, can we accept God’s undying love for His Son.  This is God’s Final Judgment.  Do your best today to go beyond the fearful doctrines you may have been taught and come in quietness to the inner altar.  In quietness listen to the Voice for God within and accept His Final Judgment upon you!  Refuse to accept any shame, guilt, pain or sorrow that you may be holding against yourself.  Refuse to ruminate upon the lies people tell, the immoral things they do, the ways in which they neglect their children, or perhaps overprotect them.  Turn off the news – let the world be as it is without your opinions upon it, your judgments, your summations.  Ask Holy Spirit to put the judgment of God in your heart and mind – and welcome the sense of forgiveness, patience, and tolerance that begins to refresh your mind. 

When we let our ego judgments toward ourselves and others go, we welcome truth! When we bring  all our fleshly worries and concerns to Holy Spirit, we learn to trust in Spirit and not in flesh. Each time we rely on God’s Judgment rather than our own we come closer to knowing and accepting God’s Final Judgment upon us.  For as we turn to Him, we only find His Love for us; we find that God’s Judgment is for us and not against us.  To know God is to love God and in Love there is no fear.

My love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
