“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
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”
“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”
“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.”
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.”
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.”
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.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
