Revelation 20: 11-15
INTRODUCTION:†† What people think, versus Godís Plan.
It is to be remembered, as we consider the judgements of God and Christ that all human existence will continue forever. It will be each individuals OWN choice where they will spend eternity.
All mankind after their physical death are placed in holding places according to what their choice in life was.† Whether they accepted the order of God submitting to Gods way of Salvation in whatever section of time, since time began.
Mankind from the beginning of time is still in existence awaiting the FINAL JUDGEMENT
OF GOD OR CHRIST.
Some would believe that if they have done kind things for and to others they are sure to enter heaven.† They comprise of those who think that they are so very good and so nice, they have no doubt that when they die they shall just amble up into heaven and enter without question.
Some would think that death is just a pass through into another life. Or just to reappear as someone else in another place on earth.† This called re incarnation.† There are those who would consider suicide in order to accomplish this change.
They do not consider their judgment of which there is only one in order to enter The Eternal City of God or the Lake of eternal torment.††
There are many who would believe that loving and caring for what God has made in creation, apart from man, ministers to their well being and goodness.† They love the trees they hug the trees.† They love the gifts of God rather than the Giver and the Maker of every good and perfect gift.†† Perhaps they believe that in doing this it is Ďlike loving God.í
They would believe that whatever comes on the other side of the grave, all will be well for them because of their love for Godís Creation.
Then there are those who go to church.† They have known the full blast of manís dispensations upon them from the cradle to the grave.† They believe in heaven and believe that they will go there simply because they have followed the churchís dispensations, regulations and stipulations of being a Christian.† Heaven, God and His Christ they know about but they tend to be vague personages and facts that do not enter much at all into their daily lives, except on the religious occasion.††
Whatever mankind from generation to generation may think and devise: THE WORD OF GOD, makes it very clear that each man shall be judged. Each man and woman shall be judged for the intents and purposes of their own heart: for every emotional moving and motive to give a reason for every word they have spoken.
Hebrews 9: 27
One life and after this, The Judgment.
As we consider the Judgment it is important to understand what The Judgment would mean.† This will be The Judgment that will hold and bind the person whatever the verdict is.† It will be final with no exception, or review of what has been made as a judgment.
It will be eternal and shall be just.
The judgments of God and Christ will hold for Eternity.
†††††††††††††††††† The blessings will be good and will hold eternally.
†††††††††††††††††† The curses will hold eternally.† Proverbs 24: 1
†††††††††††††††††† Whatever the outcome, it will be just.
†††††††††††††††††† Justice that will not be outweighed by love.
The enormity of the judgments of God and Christ, is to be compared to the power of the capacity of their knowledge of every human being that has breathed from the days of creation to the very end when God shall sit on The Great White Throne, and when all who never knew Him as their God and Father, shall know Him as their judge.
Judgments where there shall be no agreements of the changing of His mind as to the verdict, which will hold for Eternity.†
Natural Manís judgments are generally irreversible and unchangeable to any extent by fleeting emotional observations which reveal an intolerance and biased frame of mind; often the kettle calling the pot black.
1. WHATEVER MAN MAY THINK.
God has fixed a time for the final Judgment of mankind††
A time to judge man in regard to the care of His Creation.
A time to deal with all orders of the universe that oppose Him.
A time to put an end to the present world in its entirety as well as the spiritual underworld.
He has given so much time to each generation since creation for them to turn to Him to know His Love and Goodness and all that goes with these two words.
God has set times; they are in His hands and He will accomplish what His plans are, all of which are in the course of Justice.
This is a sure thing, no matter what man may think, all mankind from the time of creation are to be judged according to Godís Righteousness, which to the world today is revealed in the Cross.† Reject it and one will go to Hell to exist in a continual awareness of where one is for Eternity.
2. WHAT HAPPENED ON THE DAY THAT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS?
God sent His Son, Jesus Christ so that,
WHOSOEVER BELIEVES THE WORK OF JESUS CHRIST SHALL NOT PERISH IN THE LAKE OF FIRE BUT SHALL KNOW ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD THE FATHER AND HIS SON IN HIS ETERNAL KINGDOM.
John 3 : 16
God at a great price, with agony of heart sent Jesus into The World of misery and fear to live and to be put to death so that mankind could know God Himself.
God the Father revealed His love in His desire to save mankind from an eternal destiny of being thrown into The Lake of Fire, The Fiery Furnace or into Outer Darkness.
Our eternal abode is in the hands of Him WHO IS LOVE AND MERCY.†
He made a way to Himself: He opened what He had closed to all mankind.
WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?† Why couldnít God change His mind about His curse on all mankind due to Adamís sin?
The call for Jesus to die, that blood be shed was in order that GODíS WORD TO ALL MANKIND COULD BE CHANGED, with the evidence revealed to be seen by all that God Himself had planned A WAY that this could be accomplished.†† This called for God Himself to be intrinsically involved because of another Word He had said ďThat no man could redeem another.Ē† Psalm 49: 7-9
It is God who makes the gift of Redemption.
****At the cross Jesus was the intricate connection between The Old and The New Agreements of God. ****
This is to be seen in Gods purposes for the cross, which called for the death of His Son.
During the times of The Old Testament, men who believed, trusted and obeyed God, at the time of their physical death, they were placed in a holding place called Paradise.† Because heaven was not yet open, according to the words of Jesus: God devised His Plan through the work of the cross, to bring them out of Paradise into His presence in Heaven.† This was a plan, which could affect all mankind.
These men by being placed by God in Paradise, had known His Final Judgment upon them, but this would not be their final eternal abode.† God our Fatherís plan when operational would bring His promises to pass, not only for them but for ALL mankind who would trust and have faith in the Full Work of Jesus Christ.
The Criteria of The Blood made The Way:
According to Godís own Ďcriteria of the bloodí God who had called men of Faith to shed blood through sacrifices and circumcision, called for God to shed His blood to honor His own Word.† Genesis 9:5-6
This was Godís marvellous way around His own Word of his curse to Adam which consequently condemned all mankind as they are Adamís children.†
By the way of the cross He made a way to Life.† Jesus as Godís Lamb shed his blood in His Fatherís place according to the Old Testament stipulations and Regulations.†
Because of this the Holy men were released from Paradise and finally on their way to heaven, because God honored His Word to their faith in Him by shedding His blood by His Lamb.
This fulfilled His criteria which was for all mankind, who would believe John 3: 16.
Genesis 15:9-18††† Acts 20: 28††† Colossians 1: 19††††† Hebrews 9: 15†††
Hebrews 11:7-10† &† 39-40
The Holy ones were judged by God at their death and were kept in Paradise.
God from Paradise raised the Holy ones on the day that Jesus died.†† They were raised before Jesus was raised.† They were raised in order to go to heaven, as God had already judged them as worthy to enter heaven.† When God shed His blood by Jesus as Godís Lamb this immediately set them free to enter heaven. They are now the Foundation of Godís Spiritual Temple, with Christ as The Corner Stone.††† They will rule and reign with Christ during his 1000 years reign. And will enter the Eternal City when all is completed.
Matthew 27:51-53†† Hebrews 9: 15-18†††† Isaiah 52: 7-10†††† Revelation 20: 1-5†
3. THERE ARE SPIRITUAL JUDGEMENTS THAT MUST BE CARRIED OUT ††
IN THIS LIFETIME, TO SPIRITUALLY ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.AND ULTIMATELY THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
This applies to the total world and not just Israel. These Spiritual Judgments are accomplished by and through application to the work of the cross and Baptism with Holy Spirit.† Both speak of the works of Jesus as The Lamb of God and Baptiser with Holy Spirit.
John 3:16††† Galatians 3: 22††† John 1: 29-34††† Acts 2: 31-36†† Galatians 3: 14
In this Life the believer is to repent towards God and believe in Jesus.†
Acts 20: 21
A Judgment takes place: God places them in Christís Kingdom, God gives them The Spirit of Christ into their spirit, making it alive.† He forgives their past sins THEY ARE SAVED ETERNALLY FROM THE LAKE OF FIRE.
Colossians 1: 13-14††† Galatians 4: 6††††† Romans 8: 10††††† Romans 3: 25
THE BAPTISM WITH HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE.
It is because of the Spiritual Work achieved by believing in the death of Jesus that one qualifies to be baptized with Holy Spirit and Fire.† However before this takes place, before it happens they are to be taken out of the Death Realm and set free from Deathís Laws: free from the Law of Sin.† Because it is Godís only way of deliverance from The Death Realm.† It is called ĎThe Spiritual CircumcisionĒ†† It is a GREAT judgment† on the behalf of the believer.† IN THIS LIFETIME .
It is by a spiritual work of great magnitude that is not simply symbolic.† It can be described as an INSTANTANEOUS SPIRITUAL PROCESS, when a great judgment and deliverance takes place at being Baptized into Death and raised out of it by God and so one is spiritually raised from Death and receives Godís praise as a result.
We are forgiven all sin and are Baptized into Godís Spirit by Christ.† One is NOW BORN AGAIN.† Then God baptizes THE BAPTIZED BELIEVER into The Body of Christ, IN CHRIST, where all those who are Baptized with Holy Spirit are placed by Him.
This is to be IN CHRIST.† It is not at the cross nor by the cross that that one enters Life but because of the Baptism with Holy Spirit.
Galatians 3: 14†† John 14: 13-17†† Romans 6: 3-14†† Colossians 2: 9-13†† Romans 8: 1-2†† Romans 2: 29††† Romans 8: 10-11††† Colossians 1: 27& 28††† John 3: 3-6††
1 Corinthians 12: 13-18††† Ephesians 4: 5-6††† John 14: 23††† Matthew 13: 47-50
THE CROSS AND THE BAPTISM WITH HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE REPRESENTS THE JUDGEMENTS THAT MUST TAKE PLACE FOR EVERYONE IN THEIR LIFETIME IF THEY WOULD INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
In and through and because of these God has judged the believer and blessed them.
They receive His Praise.
It is when faith has been operative in regard to asking Christ to be our Baptiser with Holy Spirit, that when its accompanying work is accomplished that God testifies ĒJesus is Lord Ē by speaking those words in tongues through the believer.† This is the evidence that judgment has been carried out.† One is now out of Death and in Life.
John 14: 3††† Matthew 3: 11-12††† Romans 6: 3-14††† Colossians 2: 9-13††† Acts 2: 4†† John 15:26††† 1 Corinthians 12: 3†† Philippians 2: 10-11††† Romans 10: 9
To appreciate our great salvation we must,
UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF MANíS BONDAGE TO THE DEATH REALM.AND THAT DELIVERANCE MUST BE IN THIS LIFETIME, BECAUSE DEATH HAS NO PART IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN INTO WHICH WE MAY ENTER SPIRITUALLY IN THIS LIFETIME.
THE DEATH REALM:
It is to be understood that the Death Realm does not apply to the After Life.† It is the Realm into which all mankind are born because of Adamís disobedience to the command of the Lord God Almighty.
Genesis 2: 16-17††† 3: 20-24††† Romans 3: 23††† Revelation 20: 11-15
They are under The Law of Sin [Sinís Laws] and Death [Deathís Laws] and will remain under its eternal judgment of Death by God, when He judges The World, and Death and Hades are cast into The Lake of Fire, Revelation 21: 15
†THE JUDGEMENTS OF GOD AND CHRIST BY GOD AND CHRIST.
God has His judgments to carry out and Christ has his, as it is so decreed by His God and Father.
Revelation 20:11-15†††††† ††† 2 Corinthians 5: 10
The judgments of mankind by God The Father shall be at the very end of all things.
The judgments of the Church, those in The Church, shall be by Christ.† This shall be before the end.
2 Corinthians 5: 10†††† Mark 13: 24-29
4. THOSE WHO WILL NOT BE JUDGED AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE, BY GOD, WILL BE THOSE WHOM HE HAS ALREADY JUDGED IN THEIR LIFETIME.
2.† Those ĎIn Christí, The Church, in their lifetime were raised by God out of Death.
††††††††† Romans 6: 5-11†††† Colossians 2: 9 Ė13†††† Colossians 1: 27-28
3.† The 144,000 are to be sealed by Godís Angel Ďout of the eastí, in their lifetime
†††† And at their death will enter the immediate presence of God.† He judges them to† be worthy to inherit.
†††† Revelation 7: 1-14†††† 14: 1-7
4.† The Weeds of the kingdom of Christ will not appear before The Judgment Seat of Christ nor the Great White Throne.† They will be judged by Christís Angels and cast into The fiery Furnace,††† Matthew 13: 37-42
REVELATION: 21: 1††† &†† 20:11-15†
Then I saw a Great White Throne and Him who was seated on it.
Earth and sky fled from Godís presence, and there was no place for them.
It will be The LORD God Almighty and all that He is, who shall judge at The Great White Throne.† This shall take place at the very end of Time.
It is to be remembered that when The Final Judgment takes place it will be the individualís Judgment.
All who would be alive at this time of History will pass from the physical into the Realm of the Spirit because of the winding up of the earth itself and of the sky.
They will be either in Paradise or in Hades.
Christ has done his Judgment of the church before the end of Time.† But now he hands over all in his Spiritual kingdom, those who were not judged by his angels to be weeds and those from out of his 1000 years reign.†
God will judge them.
1 Corinthians 15: 24-28†††† Matthew13: 47-50††† Matthew 13: 37-42
5. GOD AT THE VERY END WILL JUDGE THOSE WHO ARE -
THE WORLD:† All whose names have never been written in The Book of Life from the very beginning of Creation of the world.†
Revelation 17: 8†††† Revelation 20: 15
They will be cast into The Lake of Fire, with Hades and Death.†† Rev. 20: 14
THOSE IN CHRISTíS KINGDOM: The dead of Christís Kingdom who are in Paradise who will be raised to meet God for judgment are the remnant of the judgment by Christís Angels between them and The Weeds of his kingdom.†
They were the Good Seed who had the potential and qualified to become Sons of God by Baptism with Holy Spirit, but??? They will be judged out of The Books in which are written the good that people have done.† Their names have been written in The Book of Life but will be blotted out and they shall be cast into Outer Darkness† [degrees of] or The Fiery Furnace, which is where The Weeds will go.
They did not love Jesus nor maintain the love they had to have to obey his commands.
To love each other, to forgive one another, and to be baptized with Holy Spirit and Fire.
Jesus said, ď If you love me, you will obey what I commandĒ
John 14: 15†††† Acts 1: 4-5††† John 13: 34
Jesus said īIf anyone loves me and obeys my teaching, my Father will love him and we will come and make our abode with himí
Not to be Baptized with Holy Spirit is the evidence of NOT† OBEYING THE COMMANDS OF CHRIST.
John 14: 15-17†††† Revelation 2: 2-6
The teaching of men rather than that of The Word of God, have been believed because of the error of the Trinity, by the exalting of Jesus to be God, that the progressive Plan of Salvation and Christís involvement in this has been eroded. That the understanding, for example of the fact that Jesus on the cross was a Guilt Offering AND a Sin Offering.
The significance of this is that the separate works of these offerings has NOT been understood as TO KNOW THE WAY TO GOD HIMSELF in which Christ has an integral part today.
Isaiah 53: 10† Jesus was The Guilt offering which does NOT GIVE entrance into Godís presence.
Isaiah 53:12 the blood of The Guilt Offering is sprinkled, meaning that a work has been done, but the believer must go on.† Past sins forgiven, the believerís spirit is sprinkled.† Christís Spirit is given by God and one is covered with Christís righteousness.††† Romans 3: 25††† 1 Peter 1: 2††† Rom. 8:10††† Rom. 4: 7
Romans 8: 3†† Jesus was The Sin Offering, which gives entrance into Godís Presence.
The work has been done.† All sins forgiven.† God baptizes the believer with Holy Spirit by Christ and given their own righteousness, because of the Spiritual work of Christ and God for the believer.†
It is apparently believed that the one sacrifice holding two offerings is accomplished at the time of believing in Jesus as the Lamb of God, rather than one and then the other, in Godís Progressive Order.
Mark 16: 16-18† This is why Jesus said that a believer is condemned, under judgment, if they do not believe to be Baptized.† Not by water but by Spirit Ė the living water.
John 3: 3-8
By believing at the cross one is freed FROM THE DOMINION OF DEATH BUT NOT ITíS REALM.†† God is to raise us out of The Death Realm before Baptism with Holy Spirit.† It is He who testifies to this fact by declaring Jesus is Lord.
Those in The Kingdom of Christ NOW ARE NOT IN CHRIST and unless one repents and goes on as scripture portrays they shall not be raised until the very end, and will be judged by Christís Angels and the Remnant by God Himself.
Colossians 1:13-14††† 1 Corinthians 12:3†† John15: 26†††† Romans 6: 6†
Revelation 20: 5 & 11-12
The Potential sons of God in Christís kingdom and the Weeds are still in The Death Realm.† This is why the influence of The Weeds can not be discerned by others in Christís Kingdom.† It is where they are that is the problem, in Death NOT in Christ.† They cannot learn discernment by God.† Hebrews 5: 13-14†
THE BOOKS THAT WILL BE OPENED ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT OF THOSE IN THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST.
Reportedly they were seen as good seed by believing in the Work of Jesus, as The Lamb of God.† Redeemed from the curse of Adam they have failed to take the promise of God to receive His Spirit by Baptism with Holy Spirit.††† Galatians 3: 14
They will be judged as to what they have done as recorded in The books which is not to be confused with the book of Life which has been in existence since Creation.
God writing in it the names of all who have faith in Him, those who feared Him and talked with each other about Him and His Truths?
At the time of coming in repentance to the cross, because faith is towards God oneís name is written in The Book of Life and their works are recorded in the Books.† Its contents shall be the deciding factors in Godís judgment, not only of those with Christ in them but also certain ones of the world.
Because the full work of Christ for Salvation has not been taken, their names will be blotted out from The Book of Life which cancels out their possible entry into The Lambís Book of life.
The Lambís Book of Life will hold the names of those whom Christ judges to inherit Eternal Life, because as Sons of God they have done the will of The Father.† They alone will enter the Eternal City of God
They are to be over comers in order to receive the Crown of Righteousness.
Revelation 2: 7, 11, 17, 26-29†† Rev. 3: 5, 11-12, 21†† 1 John 5: 1-12††† 1 Timothy 4: 16
2 Timothy 4: 8†††††††† ****1 Corinthians 8: 6†††† 1 Corinthians 11: 3††† John 17: 3
There is to be the transformation into the likeness of Christ in this life by knowing the full work of God The Father in whose Spirit we are.† It is only Godís work which remains in the believer, so that when one appears before the Judgment Throne of Christ we shall be seen as we are.† It is the remaining element of Godís Work that shall be the deciding factor to the inheriting of Eternal Life.† Christ shall measure us.
It is essential therefore to know the Full Work of God by His Spirit, which manifests in seven ways and deposits by His Spirit in particular the Fruit of His Spirit, which is in us.
Their faithfulness as to the use of the gift given by Christ Ephesians 4: 7-11 and those given by God The Father when baptized with Holy Spirit.† 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11, both of which are to work together for the welfare of the church and all who would in faith come to the cross.†† 1 Corinthians 12: 28-30†† again this failure can be due to lack of Baptism with Holy Spirit.
The Spiritual Gifts are oneís anointing and appointment by God The Father to enable the fulfillment of Godís Work, planned for each one to do, not only in ministry but in oneís total daily life to the Glory of God.
1 Corinthians 12: 18††† Romans 12: 4-6††† Matthew 15: 13†††† Ephesians 2: 10†† Ephesians 3: 10-12†††††† Matthew 25: 1- 30
N.B. Christ will no longer be as Mediator or interceder speaking on our behalf.† He shall be as he was The Angel of Godís Presence.† He shall not forgive rebellion or the lack of doing Godís Will.
Christ shall judge us, as to whether we judge the world and angels, by our righteousness that is of God, during our time on earth as Sons of God, as this is Godís purpose for the Church.
1 Corinthians 6: 2-3†††† Ephesians 6: 10-18††† Ephesians 3: 10-12††† 1 John 4: 1-6††
