We must understand that God is severe in His judgment of rebels of which there are “many” who claim they are saved. Eternal damnation awaits all rebels (Matthew 7:13-23, etc.).
“Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.” Romans 11:22
DIVINE JUDGMENT, the “severity of God”, IS NOT GOING AWAY JUST BECAUSE YOU OR SOME FAKE PREACHER IGNORES IT!!!
Once, I had a “pastor” who rebuked me for using too many severe SCRIPTURES – yes BIBLE verses! Why? Well it’s because he was doing what the Bible says the devil’s false teachers do – tickle ears, accommodate sin, coddle lukewarm counterfeits and backslidders (2 Timothy 4:2-4; Isaiah 30:9-10, etc.).
“Judgment to come” is an essential part of the original Gospel! Are you preaching it? Watch what Paul preached:
“And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and JUDGMENT TO COME, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” Acts 24:25
“I started trying to live with the judgment in view …not so that I live in fear, but that I have less regrets hopefully.” J.
In the apostate modern church world, scarcely do we ever hear the warning of “judgment to come” (Acts 24:25). You can know that you are sitting under an antichrist wolf when you never or seldom hear the warning of “judgment to come” (Acts 24:25). Such a man could care less about your eternal soul but rather is only playing you for his own self-serving purposes to build his own ministry business/empire. Run!
Love protects therefore love warns (Jude 3; Phil 1:17; 2 Cor 5:11).
Judgment Day is on the way!
Examples of Divine Judgment which are Designed to Instill the Healthy Fear of God in Us!
Studying the judgments of God – past, present, and future – will quickly instill in us a holy fear of the LORD which is clean!!!!
“Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.” 1 Corinthians 10:6
Read that verse of holy truth above once again beloved of God. WHY are these judgment written? What’s the divine “intent” or purpose?
In the New Testament canon, our LORD lists some of the judgments He allowed to fall upon His own people for their rebellion (1 Corinthians 10:1-12; Jude 1, Romans 11:19-22, etc.).
No one escapes. Not one.
The Bible is full of warnings from Genesis to Revelation. If you have a problem with warnings, you have a problem with God. Warning is for protection. If you don’t like warnings, you simply give away the Bible to someone who is an authentic, honest a truth seeker.
Any preacher not warning the flock constantly is a wolf.
By divine inspiration, the apostle Paul warned us of those many wolves who pretend to represent the crucified Savior and yet “they are the enemies of the cross of Christ … Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things (building their own kingdom at your expense).”
Here’s the passage—please read this carefully:
“(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Philippians 3:18-21
Wolves are known by pointing you to now—to the temporal. If they spoke of eternal things, they’d direct your affections and your focus from their little church business to Christ. These antichrists in our midst do not want to do that because if they did, they’d forfeit your funds, your support and accolades.
Note that one of the six principle (foundational) doctrines of Christ is “eternal judgment”:
“Therefore leaving the principles (basic elements) of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of ETERNAL JUDGMENT.” Hebrews 6:1-2
This is more clear proof that any “preacher” not preaching “eternal judgment” is a fraud.
The LORD and His holy apostles preached us into eternity. They had a message that pointed us to the eternal and away from the temporal. This is the message of the few true messengers in this late hour.
“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Apostolic preaching is Christ centered and eternity based!
“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4
Jesus is coming.
Warning is for protection (Colossians 1:28; Jude 4, etc.).
Judgment is a very big deal to God.
He judged sin by His crucified Son (John 3:16-21).
“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” John 12:31-32
Today’s “pastors” are never heard calling men to repentance! This alone reveals they are totally false! Satan’s seminaries and fake news “bibles” have removed this essential command and word to “repent.”
Jesus Christ was lifted up on that cross and died for the sins of the whole world—for your sins. Now, in this late hour, the LORD is by His Holy Spirit drawing all men to Himself—to repent, be saved, and remain in an intimate, abiding relationship with Himself.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
What some fail to see in their own blindness, which has come through spiritual adultery and idolatry, is that judgment is from God and not mere man. “Judgment” appears 294 times in God’s Word. “Judgments” appears 127 times. His warnings of His coming judgments ARE HIS MERCY because He is “NOT willing that any should perish.” (2 Peter 3:9) … here’s a mere sampling:
“But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. 8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. … The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.” Psalms 9:7-8, 16
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent (in preparation of judgment): 31Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31
Jesus Christ is “that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” Jesus is the standard and that divine standard is perfection. Are you born again and therefore washed in His blood? If so, are you presently abiding intimately with Him today with no sin blemish on the garment of righteousness He gave you at the moment He saved you? (John 15:1-6; Ephesians 5:25-27)
ANY MAN WHO IS TELLING YOU THAT YOU ARE “ETERNALLY SECURE” AFTER BEING INITIALLY SAVED NO MATTER WHAT, IS A DIABOLICAL ANTICHRIST. RUN! JESUS AND HIS HOLY APOSTLES TAUGHT THAT AFTER BEING SAVED ONE MUST “ABIDE” (REMAIN) IN CHRIST OR PERISH IN THE FIRES OF ETERNAL DAMNATION (JOHN 15:6).
“If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” John 15:6
So, you got saved? Good, now you must STAY saved!
Rebels hate to hear that they are accountable. They refuse to die. The counterfeit refuses to lay down his life in this fleeting world. He said a prayer, thinks he’s saved, and reacts profusely to Scripture which commands he deny self, take up the cross and truly follow Jesus.
If you believe you are “eternally secure” after being saved—no matter what—none of what you believe negates the biblical truth HE gave us. You must “endure to the end” after He saves you or you will be in hell and it will be even worse for you. It is very self-serving to believe that just because you were saved at one point in time you have a free ride. Your initial salvation experience does not exempt you from His condition of abiding in Him and living a crucified life to spend eternity in Heaven with Him.
“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:20-21
Jesus teaches that one can be saved and then “fall away.” Dare you call the Son of God a liar?
“They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.” Luke 8:13
“You can stay saved if you live godly, pray, and ask forgiveness – abide in Christ to the end. Study the Word of God and obey! No such thing as eternal security, once saved, always saved. This is a damnable and dangerous message.” Sharon Compton
If you’ve truly been born again into Christ, you are personally accountable, personally responsible to live the rest of your earthly life accountable to worship, trust, and obey the LORD on His terms—to abide in and with Christ to the end (John 15:1-6; 1 Corinthians 9:27, etc.).
IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE SAVED AND ETERNALLY SECURE NO MATTER WHAT, YOUR BELIEFS ARE NOT APOSTOLIC AT ALL. IF AFTER BEING SAVED INITIALLY, WHERE O WHERE DID JESUS OR ANY OF HIS HOLY APOSTLES EVER TEACH THAT YOU ARE UNCONDITIONALLY ETERNALLY SECURE NO MATTER WHAT? CHAPTERS AND VERSES PLEASE? NOT ONLY IS THERE NO UN-CONDITIONAL PROMISE OF “ETERNAL SECURITY,” THERE ARE NUMEROUS WARNINGS ABOUT FALLING AWAY—FORGETTING GOD AFTER BEING SAVED.
“Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27
Salvation is conditional and not un-conditional as many a heretic teaches today.
“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” Revelation 19:7-8
“For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.” 1 Corinthians 11:31-32
—The fact that we have all sinned in the past is one thing…. now whether we’ve truly repented and are showing forth the fruit of authentic repentance is another thing (Psalms 51; Matthew 3:7-10).
The JUDGE has spoken in a book called THE BIBLE. He’s calling us to pay attention when we read it. His written WORD records for us HIS judgments – the judgments of the Judge. So, the lame misuse of the “judge not” scripture is a cover up from novices to justify their worship of wolves who feed their flesh nature instead of telling them God requires them to live the crucified life (Matthew 7:1-5; Philippians 3:18-19; 2 Timothy 4:2-4; 2 Peter 2:1-3; 2 John 10-11, etc.). Jesus says “Judge righteous judgment” and the only way to do that is call the shots like He does in His written Word – beginning with our own lives and out from there (John 7:24). YES GOD is the Judge and THE JUDGE HAS SPOKEN His judgments in the 66 glorious books in the canon of His Word. So there are no excuses. We shall be judged by His Word, the Bible (John 12:48; Romans 2:16; Revelation 20:10-15).
“The word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” John 12:48
The Bible teaches that because God gave every man a conscience, creation, and the written Word of God, and most of all, His only begotten Son for them, all are “without excuse.” (Romans 1:19-20; Luke 16:27-31) Judgment Day is on the way. Jesus is coming.
“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;” Hebrews 2:3
The JUDGE has spoken and His judgments and warnings of coming judgment are recorded in a book called the Bible. As you read His Word, be on the look-out for His loving warnings and His declarations of “judgment to come.” Christ’s apostle Paul speaks to a civil authority/ruler about “judgment to come”:
“And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” Acts 24:25
Paul reasoned of 3 things in his ministry to Felix as “Felix trembled”:
“judgment to come”
Does the man you claim as your spiritual elder preach these 3 things? Read them again.
Judgment Day is on the Way
Not One shall Escape.
Each of us will stand before God to give full account of our lives in this world.
There will be two judgment seats:
- The judgment of believers:
“But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:10-12
2. The Great White throne judgment of those who die in sin:
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:11-15
Finality of One’s Eternal State After Death
When men die they are judged at that moment as righteous or wicked. It’s final.
WHAT comes at the moment of “death”?
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGMENT:” Hebrews 9:27
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” Revelation 22:11
“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: … 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:6, 8
One thing’s certain from Scripture and that is that God created hell for the devil and his angels originally and yet all men who rebel against God go there with the fallen angels (Matthew 25:41). Hell is described in vivid detail in Scripture.
