The day of judgment

THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

Introduction:

Paul begins our sermon by asking each of us a question that we must consider, meditate on, and search our hearts for the answer, so we can give Paul an honest answer to his question.

                           Open your Bible to
                             (Rom.14:10-13)
           And let’s read what Paul said about judging others

(V-10) Paul writes, but why do you judge your brother?

          Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we     

            shall all  stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

 (V-11) For it is written; as I live, says the Lord, every knee   

shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

(V-12) So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.
(V-13) Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but

rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a

           cause to fall in our brother’s way.

Paul also writes in (2-Cor.5:10), saying, for we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

As I read the ending of verse ten, my first instinct or thought Was on condemnation and not salvation. To condemn someone is to find Fault, criticize, or blame someone for their weakness because they are still following the dictates of their fleshly desires; For further information (Read Rom.8:1-39).

Unfortunately, most Christians still live by the desires of the flesh rather than by God’s written word. So then, we are all guilty of following the dictates of the flesh. For we like to find fault with other people no matter what their title may be. Each of us is good at pointing fingers at others, and we are experts when it comes to criticizing or blaming others for their faults. After all, this is one of the wicked traits we inherited from Adam and Eve, who inherited it from Satan and we are good at pointing fingers at other people's misdeeds.

But you know what finger-pointing confirms to me, that what God Has written about me is true: God said in (Gen.8:21) that the imagination of man's heart Is evil from his youth, God is showing me my true nature when I chose to live according to the flesh, according to what I think is right or wrong, rather than living by God's word and what He says is right or wrong.

Jesus joins the conversation saying to His Disciples as well as to us. 

                            (Open your Bible to
                             (Matt.15:15-20).

(V-15) Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, explain this

parable to us.

(V-16) So Jesus said, are you also still without understanding?
(V-17) Do you not understand that whatever enters the mouth

goes into the stomach and is eliminated?

(V-18) But those things which proceed out of the mouth come

          from the heart, and they defile a man.

(V-19) For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,

          adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnessing,

          blasphemies.

(V-20) These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with

           unclean hands does not defile a man.

Why is it so hard for Christians to see what seems so obvious? Every time Jesus speaks about judging, he always directs all the attention back on the one who is Judging his brothers and sisters.

                                Open your Bible to

                                     (Matt.7:1-5)

Now I pray you pay close attention to the words of Jesus.

(V-1) Jesus said, judge not, why did He say judge not?

        that you be not judged.

(V-2) for with what judgment you judge, you will be judged;

and with the measure you use, it will be measured back

        to you.

(V-3) And why do you look at the speck in your brothers eye.

But do not consider the plank in your own eye?

(V-4) Or how can you say to your brother, let me remove the

speak from your eye?

(V-5) Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and

        Then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your

         brothers eye.

The plank that Jesus said was in my eye just got even bigger; this is the time to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith and walking in sincere love with our brothers and sisters.

Remember this, In the day of judgment, God is not going to judge you for the actions of others, nor is he going to punish someone else for our misdeeds, no He is not. God, will judge each one according to what they have or have not done. We all have a judgment date with the Lord, and you will not be late or absent for this appointment.

(V-12) Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also

to them, for this is the Law and the prophets.

Please write down (Matt.7:12) and remember what Jesus just said to each of us. In other words, if you sow hatred, you will reap hatred if you judge others, God will judge you, and if you show no mercy or compassion, neither will you receive mercy or compassion from the Lord. God did not create us to be a judge, or a busybody, or a trouble maker.

(Gal.6:1-10)

(V-1) Brethren, if a man is over taken in any trespass, you who

are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness

        Considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

(V-2) Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of

        Christ.

(V-3) For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is

        nothing, he deceives himself.

(v-4) But let each one examine his own work, and then he will

have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

(V-5) For each one shall bear his own load.
(V-6) Let him who is taught the word share in all good things

with him who teaches.

(V-7) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a

man sows that he will also reap.

(V-8 ) for he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap

corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the

Spirit reap everlasting Life.

(V-9) And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due

season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

(V-10) Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all,

           and especially to those who are of the household of

           faith.

(1-Jn.3:17-19)

John, one of Jesus' Disciple asked saying:

(V-17) But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother

in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the

love of God abide in him?

(V-18) My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue,

but in deed and in truth.

(V-19) And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall

          assure our hearts before God.

Moses. While on the earth reminded the Israelite nation to care for the poor in their land.

Open your Bible to
(Deut.15:6-11)

(V-6) For the Lord your God will bless you just as He promised

you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not

borrow, you shall reign over many nations, but they shall

not reign over you.

(V-7) If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within

any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is

giving you,

(V-8) but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly

lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs.

(V-09) Beware lest there be a wicked through in your heart, the

          seven year, the year of release, is at hand, and your eye

be evil against your poor brother and you give him

nothing, and he cry out to the Lord against you, and it

become sin among you.

(V-10) You shall surly give to him, and your heart should not be

           grieved when you give to him, because for this thing                 the Lord your God will bless you in all your works and in

all to which you put your hand.

(V-11) For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I

         command you, saying, you shall open your hand wide to

your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.

When I read the above verses it reminds me of how much God has blessed America, and how He has made us the number one nation in the world. But please remember this, God is not going to bless evil forever. 

And esecally when we look at the condition of the world, today. What we see is wildfires burning out of control, we see towns and City’s under siege by raging floodwaters, as well as severe droughts, squeezing the life out of its inhabits.

Most people will point to climate change as the culprit others will point their finger at the politicians or at the President of the United States, while others will point at the illegal immigrants flowing into the country, and some will even point at the blacks, or Jews, or the Asian people, while others will point at other countries or even point fingers at our Government or the rise in conspiracy stories for all these disasters affecting the world today. Our world is severely divided on every issue, and on every front, Today, as I speak we can not even agree about our children wearing face-mask to keep them safe from the virus while at school.

However, God looks at the real culprit, and that is sin. I am not speaking about the sins of the world; but rather the wickedness found in the hearts of men and women who claim to be Christians.

The Lord said, the wickedness of man is great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Gen.6:5). The Lord also said, but those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.

God, is saying My followers who claim to be Christians have a heart problem; It is wicked, exceedingly wicked. Jesus gave His followers and us one commandment, love one another as I have loved you, but rather than love other people we build fences and put up walls because we do not fear the Lord's wrath.

So, let’s look at the main topics and see what God’s opinion is on each issue. Lets look at God’s opinion the Government.

Open your Bible to
(Rom.13:1-14)

(V-1) Paul writes, let every soul be subject to the governing

        authorities, For there is no authority except God, and,

        the Authorities that exist are appointed by God.

(V-2) Therefore whoever resists the authority resist the

ordinance of God and those who resist will bring

        judgment on themselves.

(V-3) For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.

          Dyou want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is

good, and you will have praise from the same.

(V-4) For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do

evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for

he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him

who practices evil.

(V-5) Therefore you must be subject, not because of wrath but

also for conscience sake.

(V-6) For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s

         ministers attending continually to this very thing.

(V-7) Render therefore to all their due; taxes to whom taxes

are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear,

honor to whom honor.

(V-8) Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he

who Loves another has fulfilled the law.

(V-9) For the commandments you shall not commit adultery.

You shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not

bear false witness , you shall not covet, and if there is

any other commandment, are all summed up in this

saying, namely, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

(V-10) Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the

          fulfillment of the law.

(V-11) And do this knowing the time that now it is high time to

         awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than

         when we first believed.

(V-12) The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let

us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the

armor of Light

(V-13) Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and

          drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and

          envy.

(V-14) But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision

for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.

Why is our world in such calamity? There is only one answer, the wickedness found in the hearts of men and women who call themselves Christians.

God did not call Christians to be a judge; He called us as His ambassadors. He called us so He could speak peace through us.
(2-Cor.5:20).

God did not call us to condemn people, but rather to pray for them. God called Christians to preach the gospel to a lost, darkened, and fallen world. Christians are God’s first line of defense, guarding against false prophets, and false doctrine.

God never called Christians to be a curse, but He did call them to be a blessing to other people. (Read Rom 12:14).

God did not call Christians to point fingers at people’s faults, but he did call them to point the way of salvation to the lost.

We know that it is not God’s will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance and with this I ask you a:

Question? How many souls will you save for Christ if you have a condemning spirit? Or a pointing finger because you do not like or agree with them. God said it is not His will that any should perish, but I ask, how many sinners will perish because you think they are unworthy of God’s grace? 

The Pharisees asked Jesus’ Disciples a question saying, Why does Jesus eat with tax collectors and sinners?

Open your Bible to
(Matt.9:12-13)

(V-12) When Jesus heard that, He said to them, those who are

well have no need of a physician, but those who are

           sick.

(V-13) But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and

not sacrifice. For I did not come to call the righteous,

but sinners, to repentance.

I am so thankful that God is color blind, when He looks at man He does not see the color of their skin, He does not see white, or black, or green, or purple. When God looks at man, He sees made in the image of God written all over him (Gen.1:27).

Open your Bible to
(1-Jn.2:1-6)

Now please listen to God’s truths concerning our brothers and sisters regardless if we like them or not.

1) Whoever does not practices righteousness is not of God, Nor

is he who does not love his brother (1-Jn.3:10).

2) Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and

everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

    He who does not love does not know God, for God is love

     (1-Jn.4:7-8).

3) He who loves God must love his brothers and sisters as well

    (1-Jn.4:21)

Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ must also love those who is begotten of Him (1-Jn.5:1). In other words, we are to love everyone whome God created.

Inclosing:

My prayer is that God’s message will cause you to examine your heart and ask yourself these four questions.

1) Am I walking in the faith? (Read 2-Cor.13:5).
2) Do I know God? (Read 1-John 4:8)
3) Am I living the life of a Christian. (1-Cor. 13:4-7).
4) Am I serving God with a sincere heart. (Romans 13:9-10).

Q/A/
A hypocrite is somebody who pretends to have admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings but behaves otherwise.

To answer the above questions please read
(1-John chapters 1 thru 4,).

In the first book of John, he speaks about who to love and why we are to love them,

Oh! We will be discussing this scripture so be sure to study it in your free time so we can become the Church that loves God, and everything He created.

I pray God's message has blessed you today,

Amen.
