Message by Steve White on 11-22-20. WE WILL BE JUDGED. REVELATION 20:11-15 THE SETTING PSALM 9:7-8 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment. He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. DANIEL 7:9-10 9 As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. 10 A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. JOHN 5:22 ...the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son... THE DEFENDANTS REVELATION 20:12 ...I saw the dead, great and small... HEBREWS 3:15 Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion. PROVERBS 29:1 Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed-- without remedy. JOHN 5:24 "Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life." ROMANS 14:10 ...we will all stand before God's judgment seat. 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. HEBREWS 4:13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. ECCLESIASTES 12:14 ...God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. 1 CORINTHIANS 4:5b He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God. LUKE 12:47-48 47 "The servant who knows the master's will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." THE JUDGMENT ACTS 24:15 ...there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. REVELATION 20:11b The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. THE EVIDENCE MATTHEW 12:36 "...everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken." THE DEFENSE THE VERDICT & SENTENCING REVELATION 20:15 Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. PSALM 75 We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.'" No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves. It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs. As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob, who says, "I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up." There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!
