The Judgement of man
« on: January 22, 2012, 01:41:12 PM »
The bible speaks of judgement. Both the believer and the un-believer will be judged although the judging is for different purposes between the two. The believer will be judged for their place in the kingdom and the unbeliever for their place in eternal torment.

While we are saved by grace alone through faith alone we still will be judged by or if we have kept the commandments which proves if we have actually been saved.

How does the Bible summarize the answer to our question, "By what standard will we be judged"?
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether it is good or whether it is evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13,14

Are God's commandments burdensome to those who are truly born again?
"For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith." 1 John 5:3, 4

What motive should prompt us to keep God's law?
"If you love Me, keep My commandments." John 14:15

1John 2:4
He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

1 John 3:9
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit (practice) sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot (practice) sin, because he is born of God.

Who will be admitted into heaven?
"Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city." Revelation 22:14

While we are not saved by commandment keeping we will be judged as to if we have which proves if we are saved or not so why is it then that so many who claim to be saved seem to hate or at least want nothing to do with the commandments?
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

"If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?"

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
