The Judgment Seat

             of Christ

             LIGHT BRINGS

           RESPONSIBILITY

 

   The Judgment Seat of Christ

        will be set up when the

 Lord Jesus Christ returns to the

                     earth -

  "the Lord Jesus Christ..

    shall judge the quick

    and the dead at his

    appearing and his kingdom" -

            2nd Timothy 4v1.

 

The judgment will reveal who are

 righteous and who are wicked in

   the sight of God and Christ -

   "Then shall ye return, and

     discern between the righteous

     and the wicked, between him

     that serveth God and him that

     serveth him not" -

           Malachi 3v18.

 

  Judgment will be based upon a

         responsibility to God.

     Responsibility comes about

through a knowledge of the Truth,

      and this becomes the basis

                for judgment -

     "He that rejecteth me, and

        receiveth not my words,

      hath one that judgeth him:

    the word that I have spoken,

       the same shall judge him

              in the last day" -

  "And this is the condemnation,

  that light is come into the world,

        and men loved darkness

             rather than light" -

            John 12v48; 3v19.

 

       Those who are ignorant

                 of the Truth

  are not called personally before

    the judgment seat of Christ -

  He that "understandeth not, is

    like the beasts that perish" -

  "The man that wandereth out

    of the way of understanding

  shall remain in the congregation

                  of the dead" -

 "And the times of this ignorance

       God winked at; but now

         commandeth all men

        everywhere to repent" -

    "They are dead, they shall

      not live; they are deceased, 

            they shall not rise" -

   Psalm 49v20;Proverbs 21v16;

      Acts 17v30; Isaiah 26v14.

 

         The judgment involves

the gathering of all those who will

      have become responsible.

          When Christ returns

      most will be dead, though

        some will still be living.

 Those who at that time are in

 the grave will be resurrected and

   taken to the place of judgment

            together with those

             who are still alive -

"And many of them that sleep in

 the dust of the earth shall awake,

        some to everlasting life,

        and some to shame and

         everlasting contempt" -

"(they) shall come forth; they that

       have done good, unto the

           resurrection of life;

and they that have done evil, unto

 the resurrection of damnation" -

 "he that believeth in me, though

   he were dead, yet shall he live;

       and whoseover liveth and

 believeth in me shall never die" -

Daniel 12v2; John 5v29; 11v25,26.

 

 The popular "church" teachings

 (heaven & hell-going) are clearly

  unscriptural  - link to 'mortal'.

       The most common words

      translated 'hell' should be

          rendered 'grave' as in    

           Psalm 31v17 ('sheol)

 1st Corinthians 15v55 ('hades').

 

   Inaccurate biased translations

    only serve to perpetuate the

   errors of the apostate "church"

   as noted in many of our pages.

 

           On several occasions

                the meaning is

                  symbolic of          

            future judgment, &

   the destruction of the wicked -

 cp Malachi 4v1;2nd Thess.1v5-10

  - see 'the Lord's day'-7th Vision.
