The Judgement of Unbelievers

THE JUDGEMENT OF UNBELIEVERS

(YOU DON’T WANT TO BE THERE!)

(Pastor Lee Jackson – FFWC)

I)  INTRODUCTION – WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT MOCKS AND LAUGHS AT GOD’S WORD, HEAVEN, PRAYER, HELL AND ALL THINGS SACRED AS OBSOLETE AND IRRELEVANT.   JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT HAVE BEEN PERVERTED.   WE HAVE KILLERS AND RAPISTS ON THE LOOSE, WALKING THE STREETS OF AMERICA, WHO WERE ABLE TO AVOID PUNISHMENT DUE TO TECHNICALITIES AND LOOPHOLES IN THE LAW, MISTAKES IN JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS, AND SMART LAWYERS WHO WERE ABLE TO GET THEM OFF THROUGH A LOOP HOLE IN THE LAW.

 

WE CAN NO LONGER BELIEVE IN EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER THE LAW.   THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WHO HOLDS THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND AND IS THE CHIEF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, WAS PROVEN TO HAVE LIED REPEATEDLY TO A GRAND JURY AND YET HE WAS EXONERATED BY THE UNITED STATES SENATE BECAUSE THEY KNEW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DID NOT REALLY CARE AS LONG AS OUR PAYCHECK KEEPS COMING.   IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY WE HAVE THE BEST JUSTICE THAT MONEY CAN BUY.

IT IS MUCH WORSE IN MANY COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD.  IN COLUMBIA TODAY DRUG TRAFFICKERS CONTROL UP TO 40 PERCENT OF THE COUNTRY.  THEY ARE SO POWERFUL THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS MADE A SEPARATE TREATY WITH THEM.   THE RUSSIA MAFIA HAS RAPED AND PILLAGED THE COUNTRY, LEGITIMATE BUSINESSES PAY FOR PROTECTION FROM THE MAFIA.

TELEVISION IS FILLED WITH PROGRAMS THAT DEAL WITH THE SUBJECT OF LAW AND ORDER, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT.   MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THE TREATMENT OF THIS SUBJECT IS JADED AND CYNICAL.   THE GOOD GUY DOES NOT ALWAYS WIN AND THE BAD GUY DOES NOT ALWAYS LOSE ANYMORE.    THE MESSAGE TO OUR YOUTH IS THAT CRIME DOES PAY.   LESS THAN HALF OF THE MURDERS COMMITTED IN AMERICA ARE SOLVED.    WE HAVE BECOME THE MOST VIOLENT SOCIETY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.    OUR SCHOOLS AND CITIES ARE FILLED WITH VIOLENCE.   OUR TELEVISION SHOWS AND MOVIES SHOW DEATH AND KILLING UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL IN GRAPHIC LIVING COLOR, WITH ALL THE BLOOD, GUTS AND GORE.   WHEN WILL IT END?

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE UNTIL JESUS CHRIST RETURNS TO JUDGE THE EARTH. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.  JESUS TALKED ABOUT SEPARATING THE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS, ONE TO EVERLASTING LIFE AND ONE TO ETERNAL DESTRUCTION.

THERE WILL BE A JUDGEMENT OF BELIEVERS AND A JUDGEMENT OF UNBELIEVERS: Romans 14:11 For it is written, [As] I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  THERE WILL NOT BE ANY UNBELIEVERS STANDING BEFORE HIM ON THAT DAY!

II) A DESCRIPTION OF ISRAEL’S SINS AND GOD’S RESPONSE,  SALVATION TO THOSE WHO REPENT AND JUDGEMENT TO THOSE WHO DO NOT  (ISAIAH 59:1 – 20)

A)       THE CONDITIONS THAT PROMPTED GOD TO ACT:

1)    OUR SINS HAVE SEPARATED US FROM GOD – GOD WILL NOT HEAR US

2)    NO ONE CALLS FOR JUSTICE OR PLEADS HIS CASE WITH INTEGRITY BUT RELY ON EMPTY ARGUMENTS

3)    THEIR THOUGHTS AND DEEDS WERE EVIL CONTINUALLY

4)    THEIR WAYS WERE FILLED WITH VIOLENCE

5)    THE LIGHTS OF RIGHTEOUS AND JUSTICE HAD GONE OUT – THEY BECAME THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND GROPING IN SPIRITUAL DARKNESS FEELING THEIR WAY

6)    THEY LOOKED FOR JUSTICE BUT IT WAS NOT TO BE FOUND

7)    THEY WERE REBELLIOUS AND TREACHEROUS AGAINST THE LORD OF HEAVEN, TURNING THEIR BACKS ON HIM AND STIFFENING THEIR NECKS

8)    TRUTH WAS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND AND THOSE THAT SHUN EVIL AND PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAME A PREY

B)       GOD’S RESPONSE

1)    HE LOOKED FOR SOME ONE TO INTERVENE; SOME ONE TO STAND IN THE GAP AND PRAY AND INTERCEDE, HE FOUND NO ONE.  HE FOUND NO INCESSOR(16)

2)    HE SENT A REDEEMER

(a)  HIS OWN ARM BROUGHT SALVATION (16 & 17A)

(b)  HE BROUGHT VENGEANCE AND JUDGEMENT TO THOSE WHO SPURNED THIS DIVINE INITIATIVE (17B – 20)

III)           A WARNING OF  GOD’S JUDGEMENT THAT IS COMING ON INDIVIDUALS  WHO FAIL TO REPENT (ROMANS 2:3 – 11)

IV)          JUDGEMENT OF UNBELIEVERS AND SINNERS (REVELATION 20:11 –15)

A)      THE ANCIENT OF DAYS WILL PRESIDE, SITTING UPON HIS THRONE  Daniel 7:9-10  beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands inistered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

B)       NO WILL BE NO PLACE TO HIDE, HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL FLEE FROM HIS AWESOME PRESENCE

C)      THERE WILL BE NOTHING HIDDEN: Luke 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

D)      ALL WHO HAVE REJECTED CHRIST WILL STAND BEFORE HIS THRONE

E)       THE BOOKS OF RECORDS WILL BE OPENED – EACH PERSON WILL BE JUDGED ACCORDING TO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AS RECORDED IN THE BOOKS, AS TO WHETHER THEY WERE ABLE TO LIVE ABOVE THE LAW (THE OLD COVENANT)

F)       FINALLY, ANOTHER BOOK WILL BE OPENED – THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE (WHICH HAS TO DO WITH THE NEW COVENANT – WHAT DID THEY DO WITH JESUS)

G)      IF THEIR NAME IS NOT FOUND IN THE BOOK OF LIFE THEY WILL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE, A PLACE OF:

1)    WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH (MT 22:13)

2)    TROUBLE AND DISTRESS (ROMANS 2:9)

3)    EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION (2 THESSALONIANS 1:9)

4)    WHERE THE FIRE NEVER GOES OUT (MARK 9:43)

V)  HOW SHOULD THIS KNOWLEDGE AFFECT BELIEVERS (HEBREWS 10:23 –31)
