About

Louis and Kathy DeSiena are the Senior Leaders of Torch Bearers Church and Apostolic Training Center in Jacksonville, Florida. In their many years of serving in the church, there was a stirring passion for higher truth. Kingdom revelation came to the DeSiena’s before it was a favorite topic at church and a fire started to burn more deeply to see this truth revealed to the church body. Ordained as a prophet and with a heart of a reformer, Louis and Kathy began VFR ministries “Voice for Restoration” in 2002 (Now Louis DeSiena Ministries). This began their ministry to see Christ’s church raised up in present truth and power. In the years following, the Lord began a work through them to prepare them for their apostolic call. The word of the Lord came to Louis to release His power in Jacksonville, and in 2007 Louis and Kathy joined hands in what is now Torch Bearers Church, a house with one focus “The Presence of God.” In His presence and with a father’s heart they continue to train spiritual sons and daughters for the Kingdom of God to be a people of power and prayer. With a fire of passion for the Lord and revival beating in their hearts, they are a generation determined to see their city, their nation, and their world changed forever.

Without Justice and Righteousness, the Mercy Seat would not have any legs to stand on...

We hear so much about the mercy of God.  I for one am all for it.  I need forgiveness every day of my life and need more of it than less of it.  As with most topics, when one side gets emphasized, it often leaves a misunderstanding of other areas.  So when something as foundational as Judgement comes along, we tend to have little revelation of it's importance to mercy.  As a point of the Kingdom of God, there can be no mercy if there was no judgment.  Now the Grace People are going to go nuts over this.  Thinking that we have all escaped the judgment of God and have received mercy.  With that point, I do agree, but my point here is to help you begin to understand why one cannot exist without the other.  So I will make this statement: 

"Without Justice and Righteousness, the Mercy Seat would not have any legs to stand on."

Yes, I said it.  Mercy is only available because of Judgment.  Judgment makes the act of mercy necessary, and God's love made it available.  The Scriptures will unfold this for us, and we will start with the Throne of God.

Psa. 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face.

God is a righteous judge.  Everything that He does is founded on Righteousness and Justice.  I will explain why this leads to Mercy in a moment.  First, we must look at the declaration of the Lord to Moses in one of the greatest encounters every.

Ex. 33:19 Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”

Most people don't always think of God's grace as a gift.  We will see that compassion is also a gift and how finding us guilty in judgment, brought about the most precious gift of mercy to us.

Gal. 3:19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.
Gal. 3:20 Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one.
Gal. 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.
Gal. 3:22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Man's transgression brought about the necessity for God's Law.  God delivered the Law to show humankind that all had sinned against Him.  That, by the way, is judgment.  God looked at humanity and saw that man was guilty.  In this act of judgment, God sent our Savior and Deliverer.  Scripture declares that we have all sinned.

Rom. 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Now, because we have been found guilty, we are open for Mercy.  Kindness, piety, and favor can all describe mercy.  The dictionary defines mercy as:

Mercy-leniency and compassion shown toward offenders by a person or agency charged with administering justice

God is in charge of administering justice, but instead, He has had mercy.  That came in the sacrificial Lamb and took away the sin of the world.  The wrath of our sin was poured out on Him.  

Is. 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Is. 53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
Is. 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
Is. 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Jesus became our atonement or propitiation.

Heb. 2:17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.

1 John 2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

God's judgment was necessary; it is the only conclusion for a righteous judge. You see, only offenders can receive mercy.  If I were to say to you, "I forgive you for stealing my car."  Your immediate response might be, "I didn't take your car."  Therefore you don't need my mercy.  As a matter of point, you might even find this to be offensive.  If Scripture did not confine us under the law, of which we have all transgressed, we would not be in position for mercy.  

Judgment is a vital part of the Kingdom that makes the great measure of grace and mercy that much sweeter.  For me, it is this beautiful truth that has brought joy to my heart, not commendation.  Why?

Rom. 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Rom. 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Rom. 8:33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
Rom. 8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
Rom. 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

The judgment also has another benefit.  The Lord comes close in judgment to deliver us.

Mal. 3:5 And I will come near you for judgment;
    I will be a swift witness
    Against sorcerers,
    Against adulterers,
    Against perjurers,
    Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans,
    And against those who turn away an alien
    Because they do not fear Me,”
    Says the LORD of hosts.

We have miss understood the role of Judgment in the body.  We are to judge but only as a means of forgiving and bringing reconciliation.  It is not to condemn or cast stones.  Is to bring others the beautiful message of forgiveness and grace to a world stuck in their sins.  Many Christians read the Holy Word with self-condemnation, not understanding the real heart of God.  

Even when we have to offer the hardest of decisions, it is for the benefit of the individual that they might come to a place of repentance.  Many times we are offering forgiveness without repentance or even the slightest hint of remorse.  

When one is unaware of their sin, it can have terrible consequences to the person who needs the mercy the most.  For it is by faith only that mercy can be accessed.  However, if he or she does not believe they have sinned, how will they ask for forgiveness.  Now I am not saying going around and telling everyone what they have done wrong.  In the preaching of Jesus Christ, there is a necessity also to include that man has transgressed.  It is in this truth that God could have judged us all with a final judgment, but love made a way where there was no way.  God judgment is not something that we are to be afraid of anymore if we humbly submit ourselves.  The foundation of Righteousness and Justice has made for something more glorious, Mercy and Truth.  

John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

I hope this helps you to understand the role of judgment in the Kingdom of God.  Why it is necessary and why you should rejoice in God.  His Judgments are true and righteous altogether.  

God Bless.
