God will finish what He started.
Genesis 1:1, Revelation 21:1, 2Peter 3:10-12
1.) The Judgment of God = Genesis 3:14-19, Exodus 20
God has the authority to make any judgment about anything at any time; He is God.
He has the right because He is God and the Creator of all things.
Psalm 19:9, Psalm 96:13, Acts 17:30-31
It is about our acceptance of Christ or our rejection of Him.
John 8:24 and 3:18-21, Hebrews 9:27
Will we stand before Him in His grace or be judged by His Law?
a.) The Judgment of the Saints = We will be judged for reward. 1Corinthians 3:11-15
b.) The Judgment of the Nations = Matthew 25:31-46
This will be based on how nations dealt with God’s people of Israel.
c.) The Great White Throne Judgment = Revelation 20:11-15. Anyone who has rejected God’s offer of salvation through Christ will be judged on that basis.
d.) The Judgment of Israel = Ezekiel 20:33-37, Ezekiel 36-37. At the end of the Tribulation Israel will be restored.
e.) The Judgment of Fallen Angels = Jude 6, 2Peter 2:4. They too will be judged with finality.
2.) The Rapture of the Church = 1Thessalonians 4:13-18. This is the miraculous removal of God’s Church from this world. It is the next step in the prophetic calendar; there is nothing more that needs to transpire.
What do you want to be found doing when Jesus comes for you?
3.) The Great Tribulation = Revelation 6-18. This is 7 years of God’s judgment on this world as satan, his anti-Christ and false prophet seek to deceive the whole world.
4.) The Second Coming of Jesus and His Millennial Reign = Revelation 19-20. At the end of the Tribulation Jesus returns physically to Earth.
5.) What Kind of People Ought We To Be? = 2Peter 3:10-13 (NIV)
We ought to live holy and godly lives.
The greatest area of weakness in the Church today is a lack of holiness in those who call themselves Christians.
Hebrews 9:27, John 14:6, Hebrews 3:12-15
Today is the day to know for sure; today is the day to tell someone else. Judgment is coming.
2Peter 3:8-9, Matthew 25:21 and 23
