The ‘Forgotten’ Judgment of Jesus Christ

judge

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
–Matthew 10:34

There is ANOTHER part–which is often CONVENIENTLY OVERLOOKED–to the generous offer of salvation to ALL MEN which God extended to man whenever He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to serve as both the sacrifice and the guarantee of that generous offer.

That OFTEN-OVERLOOKED (or conveniently FORGOTTEN) part of the deal?

A SWIFT and SURE judgment to ALL who reject God’s generous offer to His creation.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”
–Hebrews 9:27

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats”
–Matthew 25:31-32

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”
–2CORINTHIANS 5:10

This ASSURED judgment of Jesus on the world given in God’s Word contrasts GREATLY with the world’s marketing campaign of Jesus as “Buddy Jesus.”

“Jesus wouldn’t judge me: he’s my buddy!”

God’s Word assures all mankind that Jesus will return to earth to judge man–and God’s Word is TRUE.

God’s Word assures the reader that ALL men will be judged by Jesus Christ–including those men who have taught (and were earlier taught themselves) that Jesus is nothing more than a fairy tale.

God’s Word assures the reader that ALL men will be judged by Jesus Christ–including those men who gave their allegiance and faith to false Christs.

“For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”
–John 5:26-29

And it will NOT be “Buddy Jesus” which judges mankind.

And Jesus will NOT wink at a person’s sin because “he is a good guy.

Jesus will judge justly–as the Father Himself would do.

“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
–John 5:30

This incredibly-fair and incredibly-sure JUDGMENT OF JESUS is a often-forgotten component of Jesus’ return to earth.

Hopefully, the reader will not forget it as well.

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

The Uncertainty of Life is Certain

uncertain

Occasionally, one remembers back to when one was a lost and deceived heathen, wandering from place to place as one attended to the trivial pursuits of this lost and dying world.

On one such recent mental journey, it was brought to mind the UNCERTAINTY of one’s life when one was a heathen.

Finances, cars and homes to maintain, the maintenance and care of the tools and utensils used to maintain those cars and homes, computers, game consoles, stereos and DVD players: all were a source of uncertainty. And this was just the PHYSICAL items one kept an eye on.  This does not include all of the non-physical concerns: insurance, taxes, ‘surprises’ which cropped up and needed looking after; as well as the health and well-being of family, friends and neighbors.

It’s not like EVERYTHING broke down at once, but it seemed as if the uncertainty of life hung over nearly EVERYTHING one put one’s hand to–and that hand was largely otherwise VERY successful when it was a hand attached to a heathen.

BUT, still, when one believes this life is all that there is, then it seems the clock NEVER stops tick, tick, ticking and that tick, tick, ticking includes the wearing away of those things of the world.

And, like the sands in an hourglass, one felt those precious minutes and seconds slipping away.

And, when everyday items need a nearly-constant upkeep, those minutes and seconds get occupied doing the mundane chores of life.

At any rate, thinking back to that–what seems to be a–LONG time ago, it was a TIME of UNSETTLED MATTERS.  It didn’t matter what the item was in question, for some reason,  its circumstance seemed as if it was UNSETTLED.

When one was a heathen, one’s focus was DEFINITELY different.

One’s focus was usually on a thing of this world.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

Oh, if one were asked about his life, he felt he was generally happy–at least as happy as his friends, family and neighbors appeared to be.

AND, one felt that one was a ‘good person’ because of church attendance and helping at church-related functions.

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Romans 3:10-12

Those unsettled, UNCERTAIN times seem so long ago and far away.

Although one rarely stopped to think much on it (largely because one didn’t have anything else to compare one’s UNCERTAIN life to), life was CERTAIN to be filled with various forms of UNCERTAINTY.

The world has a saying: “The only things certain are death and taxes.”

Death?

One was aware that one had a LIMITED amount of time on this earth, but one didn’t generally dwell on death.

Taxes?

There always seemed to be resources to pay them.

IF FACT, thinking back on that time, the only thing which appeared certain was the UNCERTAINTY of it all.

DOES the reader ever get caught up in how UNCERTAIN this life appears?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Dollar Stores

dollar

Occasionally, a small group of people will happen upon a topic which NONE later remember how that subject became the object of a conversation.

And so it was that recently, the topic of DOLLAR STORES was discussed.

HOWEVER the topic began, there were a few points of general agreement on the phenomena that is the DOLLAR STORE in America.

1- Dollar stores have multiplied at a rapid rate in the USA.

Perhaps this is because of the rapidly-rising prices in America.  Although the government/media has only IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS acknowledged this mushrooming INFLATION, it has been going on for YEARS–as ANYONE who has shopped for groceries (or anything else, for that matter) knew.

Maybe DOLLAR STORES spread across the fruited plain because that is MOSTLY what Americans have had left to spend: DOLLARS.

As in ONE dollar.

Instead of twenty or fifty or hundred-dollars.

It appears that every town, village and city in America has a DOLLAR STORE–or two or three or ten.

Maps Show Alarming Pattern of Dollar Stores’ Spread in U.S. Cities (2019)

We found growing evidence that the growth of dollar stores is not merely a byproduct of economic distress. These chains are a cause of it.

Who knew?

A place that sells for prices the person buying can afford is the CAUSE of higher prices elsewhere?

Again, who knew?

2- Although some DOLLAR STORES sell EVERYTHING in the store at one price point (one dollar), the careful shopper can find a few of those items elsewhere for LESS THAN A DOLLAR.

Not many and not so very much cheaper–but, there are a few items which are cheaper at other places than the DOLLAR STORES.

3- Although about a decade or so ago, there were LOTS of small, independently-owned DOLLAR STORES, over the past several years DOLLAR STORES have  basically boiled down to THREE brands.

Dollar Tree (where all merchandise is for sale at one dollar), Dollar General (where the items for sale can cost up to $25 dollars) and Family Dollar (which is owned by Dollar Tree).

4- Going to a DOLLAR STORE is often not only just a shopping experience.

Sometimes, customers have expressed going to DOLLAR STORES as a sort of ‘bargain-hunting’ excursion.

“I show up at my local store two or three times a week. It’s like going to a yard sale! You never know what you’ll find!”

Except at a yard sale, there’s a fairly good chance one will find a used pair of pants for 25 cents.

5- DOLLAR STORES are particularly well-stocked with cleaning and food items, as well as various  knick-knacks.

As the value of a U.S. dollar has GREATLY declined over the past 10-15 years, a dollar buys LESS. And–contrary to what the reader may be told by the government/media, LESS is NOT more: LESS is LESS.

Therefore, the range of products sold at DOLLAR STORES has narrowed quite a bit.

6- DOLLAR STORES seem to be the logical progression of (what used to be called) ‘5-and-dimes.’

Classic Five-and-Dime Stores From Yesterday and Today

Woolworth’s, Murphy’s and McCrory’s were the leading 5-and-10-cent chains of yesteryear.

Of course, this was back when a nickel or dime was worth a nickel or dime.

7- There was some discussion on whether the various COVID-19 rules and regulations would help or hurt DOLLAR STORES.

Some felt they would HURT dollar stores because, if customers were forced to live under strict rules of movement and contact, they might skip DOLLAR STORES and head to larger stores instead.

Others felt that, as incomes went lower and restrictions increased, people would turn to DOLLAR STORES to help make ends conveniently meet.

There was some DISAGREEMENT on whether DOLLAR STORES would survive the trends seen in today’s American economy.

Some wondered if DOLLAR STORES could survive if a dollar was only worth 10 cents.

Others felt, what better place to shop than a DOLLAR STORE–no matter what a dollar was worth.

What does the reader believe?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
