THE PURPOSE OF THIS SMALL AND INFERIOR ATTEMPT TO BRING THE REALITY OF THIS FUTURE EVENT IS TO PRODUCE A SOLEMN AWE OF GOD AND AWAKEN US TO THE DEPTH OF RESPONSIBILITY GOD IS REQUIRING OF US.
STANDING BEFORE JESUS AT HIS JUDGMENT SEAT 2Cor5:10 Roms14:10-12 (Bema not generally thought of as Royalties Throne)
…..Why are we to stand before this tribunal? What would be the purpose for one who is saved?
“for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves it the gift of God ; not of works, that no man should glory” Eph2:8
CHRISTIANS MUST UNDERSTAND THERE ARE TWO OVERCOMINGS IN THE GOSPEL……HIS AND OURS…TWO RIGHTEOUSNESS’S ….HIS AND OURS…
ISRAEL’S SALVATION our example…1Cor10
The first work is that command of The Blood which was God’s Own Work…
The second part of Yahweh’s command was “…ye shall put away leaven out of your houses.”
First The putting on the Blood for Justification…. Next The putting out of leaven for Sanctification.
Judgment as it relates to Justification would differ not at all from individual to individual.
Failing to put out the leaven has to do with each individual’s degree of obedience in sanctification varying in multiple ways as leaven represents all thoughts, words, and actions unique to every redeemed soul…. although consequences was not the cutting off from redemption’s justification but the cutting off from Israel on their way to realizing God’s purpose’s for saving, therefore being excluded from not the “Saving” but the PROMISES of Saving’s Purposes.
For the disobedient children of God to share in the inheritance with the obedient sons of God would be a miscarriage of God’s Holiness and Justice.
Having spoken somewhat in times past about “The Kingdom of Christ” AS the age of Justice….as compared with this age of Mercy and Grace …we here again briefly speak to that corresponding event….The Judgment Seat of Jesus Christ.
No other than Believers regenerated will stand before this Judgment Seat as it is an assessment due only participants in His Body.
The exposure of the seeker’s SOUL is immediately following his standing before the Judgment Seat.
ONLY CHRISTIANS CAN SIN AGAINST PRIVILEGE after being saved, typed in Esau and his punishment…The Spirit of God having had rebirth In Christ in view when documenting Esau as a warning to merely born again believers .
Christ’s directive and searching Words in Matt 16:24-28 describes the judicator’s purpose….(what some Apostles later called the salvation of the soul). Here in Matthew, Christ binds together acceptable works as the result of taking up our cross / the crucifying of our carnal soul life. “For whosoever will save his (life) soul shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life (soul) for my sake shall find it.”…these Words have in view the Judgment Seat.
Here is the beginning of revealing the Mystery of the Kingdom as it relates to qualifying its attendants,… in their acceptance or rejection by The King of that future Millennial Kingdom at this His Judgment Seat, based upon the willingness of the participant in eternal life to develop His Character through cooperating in the death of his carnal soul life.
Acceptance or rejection at the Judgment Seat has to do with the Believer’s worthiness as it relates to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ not acceptance or rejection as it relates to the gift of eternal life.
Here at the Judgment seat is determined punishment or reward for the regenerated…. chiefly the loss or the gain of that Kingdom’s inheritance, that is the being selected to be a part of His regal Bride in the First Resurrection Rev 20:4-6.
ONLY CHRISTIANS CAN SIN AGAINST LIGHT after having revelation….typed in the exclusion of all but two from the Promised Land….Thus Canaan is the type of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, closing the Scriptural Sabbath DAY that period of seven thousand years. Scripture having in view our possible inclusion or exclusion from the Kingdom of Jesus Christ then there to be manifested.
