  • out of temptations,and to reserve the unjust

  • So, is there ajudgment day coming?
  • 00:01:51.627 --> 00:01:57.065
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:01:57.166 --> 00:01:58.433
  • Will everyone be judged?
  • 00:01:58.534 --> 00:02:02.004
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:02.104 --> 00:02:03.205
  • Will believers be judged?
  • 00:02:03.305 --> 00:02:05.307
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:05.407 --> 00:02:06.241
  • Will unbelievers be judged?
  • 00:02:06.341 --> 00:02:08.510
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:08.610 --> 00:02:09.645
  • But, will we be judgedby grace or works?
  • 00:02:09.745 --> 00:02:15.684
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:02:15.784 --> 00:02:17.853
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:17.953 --> 00:02:19.922
  • Now, listen.
  • 00:02:20.022 --> 00:02:21.056
  • I am not saying thatsalvation is grace and works,
  • 00:02:21.156 --> 00:02:24.793
  • but there is a believer'sjudgment and there
  • 00:02:24.893 --> 00:02:26.995
  • is an unbeliever's judgment.
  • 00:02:27.095 --> 00:02:28.964
  • But at both judgments,works are judged.
  • 00:02:29.064 --> 00:02:32.367
  • Let me show you a few otherScriptures, all right?
  • 00:02:32.467 --> 00:02:35.837
  • Ecclesiastes 12:14, "ForGod will bring every work."
  • 00:02:35.938 --> 00:02:41.343
  • Would you mind sayingthe word, "every"?
  • 00:02:41.443 --> 00:02:43.879
  • "Every work into judgment,including every",
  • 00:02:43.979 --> 00:02:48.617
  • would you say it again?
  • 00:02:48.717 --> 00:02:50.719
  • "Every secret thing,whether good or evil."
  • 00:02:50.819 --> 00:02:55.824
  • You can groan now.
  • 00:02:55.924 --> 00:02:59.061
  • Okay, you didn't groan!
  • 00:02:59.161 --> 00:03:00.062
  • I guess you're okaywith it, all right?
  • 00:03:00.162 --> 00:03:02.397
  • Matthew 16:27, "For the Sonof Man will come in the glory
  • 00:03:02.497 --> 00:03:06.034
  • of His Father with His angels,and then He will reward each",
  • 00:03:06.134 --> 00:03:10.772
  • say the word, "each", "accordingto his works."
  • 00:03:10.872 --> 00:03:15.477
  • Revelation 22:12, "Andbehold, I am coming quickly,
  • 00:03:15.577 --> 00:03:18.447
  • and My reward is with Me, togive to every",
  • 00:03:18.547 --> 00:03:22.050
  • would you say the word, "every"?
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:23.986
  • "Every one accordingto his work."
  • 00:03:24.086 --> 00:03:26.989
  • Okay.
  • 00:03:27.089 --> 00:03:27.856
  • I am an each.
  • 00:03:27.956 --> 00:03:30.993
  • You are an each.
  • 00:03:31.093 --> 00:03:33.395
  • We are every.
  • 00:03:33.495 --> 00:03:34.963
  • God is going to reward eachand every one, and judge each
  • 00:03:35.063 --> 00:03:39.534
  • and every person,according to his works.
  • 00:03:39.635 --> 00:03:44.640
  • But, are we saved by works?
  • 00:03:44.740 --> 00:03:46.375
  • Not at all.
  • 00:03:46.475 --> 00:03:47.509
  • Ephesians 2:8-9, "For bygrace you have been saved
  • 00:03:47.609 --> 00:03:51.013
  • through faith, thatnot of yourselves.
  • 00:03:51.113 --> 00:03:53.315
  • It is the gift ofGod," would you say these
  • 00:03:53.415 --> 00:03:55.584
  • three words with me?
  • 00:03:55.684 --> 00:03:56.685
  • "Not of works."
  • 00:03:56.785 --> 00:03:59.021
  • Can you say itone more time?
  • 00:03:59.121 --> 00:04:00.355
  • "Not of works, lestanyone should boast."
  • 00:04:00.455 --> 00:04:04.493
  • Okay, so how dowe explain this?
  • 00:04:04.593 --> 00:04:06.928
  • How do we explain that we'resaved by grace,
  • 00:04:07.029 --> 00:04:10.265
  • but judged by works, accordingto our works?
  • 00:04:10.365 --> 00:04:15.370
  • I'm going to give youthe most simple way
  • 00:04:15.470 --> 00:04:20.142
  • to understand this hugetheological, doctrinal issue.
  • 00:04:20.242 --> 00:04:26.682
  • I'm gonna give youa very simple way.
  • 00:04:26.782 --> 00:04:28.016
  • It's two words.
  • 00:04:28.116 --> 00:04:29.318
  • We have to learn todetermine and distinguish
  • 00:04:29.418 --> 00:04:32.521
  • between our, are you ready?
  • 00:04:32.621 --> 00:04:34.289
  • Here are the two words,belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:34.389 --> 00:04:38.860
  • Belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:38.960 --> 00:04:42.898
  • Our belief determines, andyou may want to write
  • 00:04:42.998 --> 00:04:45.233
  • this statement down.
  • 00:04:45.334 --> 00:04:46.435
  • Our belief determineswhere we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:46.535 --> 00:04:51.340
  • Our behavior determineshow we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:51.440 --> 00:04:57.012
  • Let me say it again.
  • 00:04:57.112 --> 00:04:58.180
  • Our belief alone determineswhere we spend eternity,
  • 00:04:58.280 --> 00:05:03.885
  • and our behavior determines howwe spend eternity,
  • 00:05:03.985 --> 00:05:07.022
  • whether heaven or hell.
  • 00:05:07.122 --> 00:05:08.557
  • In heaven, we're going to berewarded for our works,
  • 00:05:08.657 --> 00:05:12.327
  • and in hell, people are going tobe punished for their works.
  • 00:05:12.427 --> 00:05:16.531
  • But, depending on where yougo is completely dependent upon
  • 00:05:16.631 --> 00:05:20.969
  • whether you believe inJesus Christ or not,
  • 00:05:21.069 --> 00:05:23.071
  • and the Bible is soclear about this.
  • 00:05:23.171 --> 00:05:26.375
  • There are two judgments, andI'm going to talk about each
  • 00:05:26.475 --> 00:05:29.111
  • of these twojudgments today.
  • 00:05:29.211 --> 00:05:31.446
  • There are two judgments, theJudgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:05:31.546 --> 00:05:34.249
  • and the Great WhiteThrone Judgment.
  • 00:05:34.349 --> 00:05:36.151
  • At the Judgment Seat ofChrist, every person there
  • 00:05:36.251 --> 00:05:41.256
  • is a believer.
  • 00:05:41.356 --> 00:05:43.125
  • Every person is a believer.
  • 00:05:43.225 --> 00:05:45.160
  • At the Great WhiteThrone Judgment,
  • 00:05:45.260 --> 00:05:47.396
  • every person is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:47.496 --> 00:05:50.098
  • Every person at thatjudgment is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:50.198 --> 00:05:52.401
  • This is why peopledon't understand.
  • 00:05:52.501 --> 00:05:54.102
  • Well, why are you even gonnahave a judgment if every person
  • 00:05:54.202 --> 00:05:56.538
  • there at theGreat White Throne
  • 00:05:56.638 --> 00:05:58.707
  • is an unbeliever and is going togo to hell, and why would you
  • 00:05:58.807 --> 00:06:01.309
  • have a judgment if every personat the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:06:01.410 --> 00:06:03.745
  • is a believerand is gonna go to heaven?
  • 00:06:03.845 --> 00:06:05.247
  • The reason is because thisjudgment is not
  • 00:06:05.347 --> 00:06:07.382
  • to determine your belief.
  • 00:06:07.482 --> 00:06:08.984
  • Your belief has alreadydetermined which judgment
  • 00:06:09.084 --> 00:06:11.787
  • you're going to attend.
  • 00:06:11.887 --> 00:06:14.523
  • But at that judgment, ateach judgment,
  • 00:06:14.623 --> 00:06:17.125
  • your behavior will be judged.
  • 00:06:17.225 --> 00:06:19.428
  • Here's what I'mtrying to tell you.
  • 00:06:19.528 --> 00:06:20.629
  • It matters how you live.
  • 00:06:20.729 --> 00:06:24.132
  • It matters what youdo on this earth.
  • 00:06:24.232 --> 00:06:26.735
  • And according to Scripture,if you believe,
  • 00:06:26.835 --> 00:06:29.571
  • it will alter your behavior.
  • 00:06:29.671 --> 00:06:32.307
  • God's grace, God's unmeritedfavor, gives us the desire
  • 00:06:32.407 --> 00:06:37.813
  • and the power towant to serve God.
  • 00:06:37.913 --> 00:06:40.949
  • So, let's talk about thesetwo judgments, all right?
  • 00:06:41.049 --> 00:06:44.152
  • We are not saved by works,but works do matter.
  • 00:06:44.252 --> 00:06:48.056
  • By the way, let me say this.
  • 00:06:48.156 --> 00:06:49.391
  • This is why people whounderstand grace get upset
  • 00:06:49.491 --> 00:06:53.728
  • when people talk in thewrong way about works,
  • 00:06:53.829 --> 00:06:57.332
  • and this is why people whounderstand that our behavior
  • 00:06:57.432 --> 00:07:00.569
  • matters get upset whenpeople talk about grace
  • 00:07:00.669 --> 00:07:04.606
  • sometimes and don'ttalk about behavior.
  • 00:07:04.706 --> 00:07:07.042
  • This is why.
  • 00:07:07.142 --> 00:07:08.009
  • But the two can marry.
  • 00:07:08.109 --> 00:07:09.678
  • They are married inScripture and it's easy
  • 00:07:09.778 --> 00:07:11.379
  • to understand when you separatebelief and behavior,
  • 00:07:11.480 --> 00:07:14.983
  • when you understand whateach of them are for.
  • 00:07:15.083 --> 00:07:16.351
  • All right, so here's thefirst judgment,
  • 00:07:16.451 --> 00:07:18.553
  • the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:07:18.653 --> 00:07:20.789
  • Number one, the JudgmentSeat of Christ.
  • 00:07:20.889 --> 00:07:23.458
  • Now, are you in1 Corinthians 3?
  • 00:07:23.558 --> 00:07:25.527
  • It says, "According to thegrace of God which was given
  • 00:07:25.627 --> 00:07:28.230
  • to me, as a wise masterbuilder I have laid
  • 00:07:28.330 --> 00:07:31.833
  • the foundation, andanother builds on it."
  • 00:07:31.933 --> 00:07:35.103
  • He's referringto Apollos here.
  • 00:07:35.203 --> 00:07:36.838
  • "But let each one", and I'mnot gonna ask you to repeat it,
  • 00:07:36.938 --> 00:07:39.674
  • but I want you to thinkabout it every time I say it.
  • 00:07:39.774 --> 00:07:42.143
  • "Let each one take heedhow he builds on it."
  • 00:07:42.244 --> 00:07:46.515
  • In other words, how he builds onthe foundation of Jesus.
  • 00:07:46.615 --> 00:07:49.017
  • "For no other foundation cananyone lay than that which
  • 00:07:49.117 --> 00:07:52.354
  • is laid, whichis Jesus Christ.
  • 00:07:52.454 --> 00:07:55.824
  • Now if anyone", anyone, thatincludes us,
  • 00:07:55.924 --> 00:07:59.594
  • "builds on this foundation",Jesus, these are believers,
  • 00:07:59.694 --> 00:08:03.331
  • "with gold, silver, preciousstones, wood, hay, straw,
  • 00:08:03.431 --> 00:08:09.404
  • each one's work will becomeclear for the Day", capitalized,
  • 00:08:09.504 --> 00:08:15.577
  • Judgement Day, "will declareit, because it will be
  • 00:08:15.677 --> 00:08:18.613
  • revealed by fire, and thefire will test each one's work,
  • 00:08:18.713 --> 00:08:23.919
  • of what sort it is.
  • 00:08:24.019 --> 00:08:25.487
  • If anyone's work which hehas built on it endures,
  • 00:08:25.587 --> 00:08:29.491
  • he will receive a reward."
  • 00:08:29.591 --> 00:08:32.160
  • You're gonna berewarded for your works.
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:34.329
  • Verse 15, watch.
  • 00:08:34.429 --> 00:08:35.897
  • "If anyone's work is burned,he will suffer loss."
  • 00:08:35.997 --> 00:08:40.101
  • He's gonna lose his reward.
  • 00:08:40.201 --> 00:08:41.603
  • "But he himselfwill be saved."
  • 00:08:41.703 --> 00:08:44.973
  • These are all believers.
  • 00:08:45.073 --> 00:08:46.474
  • "Yet so as through fire."
  • 00:08:46.575 --> 00:08:48.810
  • Okay, I want you to notice acouple of things about this.
  • 00:08:48.910 --> 00:08:50.879
  • You can be a believer and bebuilding with wood,
  • 00:08:50.979 --> 00:08:54.816
  • hay, and straw.
  • 00:08:54.916 --> 00:08:57.018
  • You can be a believer andbuild with gold, silver,
  • 00:08:57.118 --> 00:08:59.854
  • and precious stones.
  • 00:08:59.955 --> 00:09:01.122
  • In other words, you can be abeliever and be doing works
  • 00:09:01.222 --> 00:09:04.993
  • that will last forever, andthat will be eternal,
  • 00:09:05.093 --> 00:09:07.429
  • and that you willbe rewarded for.
  • 00:09:07.529 --> 00:09:09.197
  • But, you can also be abeliever and be doing temporal
  • 00:09:09.297 --> 00:09:11.499
  • things that you will not receivea reward for.
  • 00:09:11.600 --> 00:09:14.536
  • Or, you could actually dosomething that's eternal,
  • 00:09:14.636 --> 00:09:18.406
  • and because of the way youdo it, you could lose your
  • 00:09:18.506 --> 00:09:20.609
  • reward for it.
  • 00:09:20.709 --> 00:09:21.910
  • Now, we're not talking aboutgoing to heaven or hell, okay?
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:23.812
  • Remember that.
  • 00:09:23.912 --> 00:09:24.980
  • Let me just show you howJesus Himself said you could
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:27.749
  • lose a rewardfor a good work.
  • 00:09:27.849 --> 00:09:31.553
  • You've read this before,maybe you've never tied it in.
  • 00:09:31.653 --> 00:09:34.322
  • Matthew 6:1, "Take heedthat you do not do your
  • 00:09:34.422 --> 00:09:37.425
  • charitable deeds before men, tobe seen by them.
  • 00:09:37.525 --> 00:09:41.796
  • Otherwise you have no rewardfrom your Father in heaven.
  • 00:09:41.896 --> 00:09:47.602
  • Therefore, when you do acharitable deed, do not sound
  • 00:09:47.702 --> 00:09:49.938
  • a trumpet before youas the hypocrites do
  • 00:09:50.038 --> 00:09:52.607
  • in the synagogues and in thestreets, that they may have
  • 00:09:52.707 --> 00:09:55.110
  • glory for men.
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:56.678
  • Assuredly, I say to you,they have their reward on earth.
  • 00:09:56.778 --> 00:10:01.149
  • But when you do a charitabledeed, do not let your left hand
  • 00:10:01.249 --> 00:10:03.652
  • know what your right hand isdoing, that your charitable
  • 00:10:03.752 --> 00:10:05.887
  • deed may be in secret, and yourFather, who sees in secret,
  • 00:10:05.987 --> 00:10:11.526
  • will", watch this word, "Himselfreward you openly."
  • 00:10:11.626 --> 00:10:17.866
  • Now, I want you to notice,first of all, you can do
  • 00:10:17.966 --> 00:10:19.734
  • something good and actuallylose the reward for it
  • 00:10:19.834 --> 00:10:22.237
  • because of theway you do it.
  • 00:10:22.337 --> 00:10:23.872
  • But, notice this.
  • 00:10:23.972 --> 00:10:25.473
  • The Father Himself, Himself,will reward you!
  • 00:10:25.573 --> 00:10:31.046
  • Did you know the Father isgoing to give rewards
  • 00:10:31.146 --> 00:10:35.417
  • to you personally?
  • 00:10:35.517 --> 00:10:38.620
  • Personally!
  • 00:10:38.720 --> 00:10:39.821
  • It's not gonna be, like abillion people, you know,
  • 00:10:39.921 --> 00:10:43.091
  • there's gonna be like abillion people out there,
  • 00:10:43.191 --> 00:10:45.994
  • and the Father's gonna walkout and say, "Y'all done good!"
  • 00:10:46.094 --> 00:10:50.932
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:51.032 --> 00:10:54.035
  • And of course, someonein the back's gonna say,
  • 00:10:54.135 --> 00:10:55.370
  • "What'd He say?"
  • 00:10:55.470 --> 00:10:57.605
  • And I'll say, "They saidthey need more wood!"
  • 00:10:57.706 --> 00:10:59.908
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:00.008 --> 00:11:02.277
  • That's notgonna be that way!
  • 00:11:02.377 --> 00:11:06.114
  • Let me show youanother Scripture.
  • 00:11:06.214 --> 00:11:07.449
  • 1 John 2:28 says, "And now,little children, abide in Him",
  • 00:11:07.549 --> 00:11:11.286
  • abide in Him, "thatwhen He appears, we may have
  • 00:11:11.386 --> 00:11:16.324
  • confidence", watch this,"and not be ashamed before
  • 00:11:16.424 --> 00:11:20.995
  • Him at His coming."
  • 00:11:21.096 --> 00:11:22.163
  • Now, this is talkingto believers!
  • 00:11:22.263 --> 00:11:23.998
  • Why would you be ashamed?
  • 00:11:24.099 --> 00:11:25.100
  • Let me tell you why somebelievers will be ashamed
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:26.601
  • at the second coming, becausethey wasted their life.
  • 00:11:26.701 --> 00:11:30.038
  • They believed in Jesus, butthey didn't serve Him,
  • 00:11:30.138 --> 00:11:33.575
  • they didn't love Him, theydidn't walk with Him.
  • 00:11:33.675 --> 00:11:35.844
  • They didn't give their livesfor the kingdom of God,
  • 00:11:35.944 --> 00:11:39.013
  • and now it's over, and they'renot gonna receive many rewards.
  • 00:11:39.114 --> 00:11:43.017
  • Did you know that, do yourealize, heaven's gonna
  • 00:11:43.118 --> 00:11:45.019
  • be cities?
  • 00:11:45.120 --> 00:11:46.454
  • Heaven's gonna be cities.
  • 00:11:46.554 --> 00:11:47.956
  • And in Luke 19, Jesus says,"To the good steward",
  • 00:11:48.056 --> 00:11:51.259
  • He's gonna say to one of 'em,"you be ruler over ten cities."
  • 00:11:51.359 --> 00:11:58.166
  • In other words, we're gonnahave a responsibility
  • 00:11:58.266 --> 00:11:59.667
  • in heaven.
  • 00:11:59.768 --> 00:12:00.535
  • Jesus told us tostore up treasure.
  • 00:12:00.635 --> 00:12:03.371
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:12:03.471 --> 00:12:04.405
  • He said, "Store up treasurefor yourselves",
  • 00:12:04.506 --> 00:12:07.776
  • for yourselves, "in heaven."
  • 00:12:07.876 --> 00:12:10.078
  • In other words, you'regonna need some money to do
  • 00:12:10.178 --> 00:12:13.014
  • business with in heaven.
  • 00:12:13.114 --> 00:12:15.049
  • Heaven is not just goingto be floating on clouds!
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:18.153
  • We talked about thisa few weeks ago.
  • 00:12:18.253 --> 00:12:20.855
  • Heaven is going to be aperfect earth, and a perfect
  • 00:12:20.955 --> 00:12:24.092
  • heaven with no sin, nosorrow, but we're going
  • 00:12:24.192 --> 00:12:28.496
  • to be living our lives.
  • 00:12:28.596 --> 00:12:32.033
  • When I was young, I went toa baseball camp one summer
  • 00:12:32.133 --> 00:12:36.004
  • and I goofed offthe whole camp.
  • 00:12:36.104 --> 00:12:38.039
  • I mean, I just goofed off,and I played pranks on people,
  • 00:12:38.139 --> 00:12:41.509
  • and I just didn'treally apply myself.
  • 00:12:41.609 --> 00:12:43.912
  • And the last day, when wegot together, there were
  • 00:12:44.012 --> 00:12:45.914
  • these tables and there weretrophies on these tables.
  • 00:12:46.014 --> 00:12:51.119
  • And I remember thinking,wait a minute!
  • 00:12:51.219 --> 00:12:56.157
  • You didn't tell me that youwere giving out awards!
  • 00:12:56.257 --> 00:13:00.962
  • If I had known you weregiving awards,
  • 00:13:01.062 --> 00:13:02.697
  • I wouldn't have goofed offthis whole week!
  • 00:13:02.797 --> 00:13:06.167
  • And of course, I didn't get one,'cause I'd goofed off
  • 00:13:06.267 --> 00:13:07.635
  • the whole week.
  • 00:13:07.735 --> 00:13:09.871
  • I wonder how many believers aregoing to get to heaven,
  • 00:13:09.971 --> 00:13:15.043
  • but not have many rewards, andnot have much responsibility,
  • 00:13:15.143 --> 00:13:20.548
  • because there are degrees ofheaven and there
  • 00:13:20.648 --> 00:13:26.688
  • are degrees of hell.
  • 00:13:26.788 --> 00:13:30.124
  • Let me ask you something.
  • 00:13:30.225 --> 00:13:32.026
  • Will the person who is abeliever, but he really
  • 00:13:32.126 --> 00:13:37.365
  • doesn't give generously, hedoesn't tithe, he doesn't serve,
  • 00:13:37.465 --> 00:13:40.902
  • he doesn't witness,he doesn't really give himself
  • 00:13:41.002 --> 00:13:42.971
  • to the kingdom,will he receive the same reward
  • 00:13:43.071 --> 00:13:46.841
  • for the person whogives sacrificially,
  • 00:13:46.941 --> 00:13:50.245
  • spends many hours helping thepoor, wins many people to Jesus?
  • 00:13:50.345 --> 00:13:54.682
  • Will each receivethe same reward?
  • 00:13:54.782 --> 00:13:56.317
  • No.
  • 00:13:56.417 --> 00:13:57.118
  • Remember, God's a just God.
  • 00:13:57.218 --> 00:13:59.621
  • God is going to recompenseevery person,
  • 00:13:59.721 --> 00:14:04.659
  • believers and unbelievers,according to our works.
  • 00:14:04.759 --> 00:14:09.898
  • And this person who giveshis or her life to the kingdom,
  • 00:14:09.998 --> 00:14:13.801
  • and sows, and serves, and loves,and ministers,
  • 00:14:13.902 --> 00:14:18.072
  • is going to receive rewards.
  • 00:14:18.172 --> 00:14:21.142
  • So, that's the JudgmentSeat of Christ.
  • 00:14:21.242 --> 00:14:24.012
  • What about the GreatWhite Throne Judgment?
  • 00:14:24.112 --> 00:14:25.980
  • Here's number two, the GreatWhite Throne Judgment.
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:30.151
  • Turn over to Revelation 20.
  • 00:14:30.251 --> 00:14:34.122
  • Revelation 20, "The GreatWhite Throne Judgment",
  • 00:14:34.222 --> 00:14:38.893
  • and I'm gonna show you why wecall it the Great White
  • 00:14:38.993 --> 00:14:40.828
  • Throne Judgment, all right?
  • 00:14:40.929 --> 00:14:43.464
  • Revelation 20:11, "Then Isaw a great white throne."
  • 00:14:43.564 --> 00:14:48.836
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:48.937 --> 00:14:57.512
  • That was all we theologianscould come up with.
  • 00:14:57.612 --> 00:15:00.982
  • All right.
  • 00:15:01.082 --> 00:15:02.216
  • "Then I saw a great whitethrone and Him who sat on it,
  • 00:15:02.317 --> 00:15:06.254
  • from whose face theearth and the heavens fled away.
  • 00:15:06.354 --> 00:15:10.725
  • And there was foundno place for them.
  • 00:15:10.825 --> 00:15:13.561
  • And I saw the dead, smalland great, standing before God,
  • 00:15:13.661 --> 00:15:17.598
  • and books were opened."
  • 00:15:17.699 --> 00:15:19.567
  • Please notice, "books"here is plural.
  • 00:15:19.667 --> 00:15:23.471
  • The word "books" is plural.
  • 00:15:23.571 --> 00:15:25.740
  • "Books were opened.
  • 00:15:25.840 --> 00:15:27.075
  • And another book", singular,"was opened,
  • 00:15:27.175 --> 00:15:31.946
  • which is the Book of Life."
  • 00:15:32.046 --> 00:15:34.983
  • Listen, this is a greatexample of belief and behavior.
  • 00:15:35.083 --> 00:15:39.420
  • If you believe, yourname is in the book.
  • 00:15:39.520 --> 00:15:41.656
  • But in the books, all of ourworks are there,
  • 00:15:41.756 --> 00:15:44.125
  • whether you're believersor unbelievers.
  • 00:15:44.225 --> 00:15:46.361
  • See, the books are books ofworks, deeds that we did.
  • 00:15:46.461 --> 00:15:50.231
  • The book is whetheryou believe.
  • 00:15:50.331 --> 00:15:52.133
  • Okay?
  • 00:15:52.233 --> 00:15:53.134
  • Watch.
  • 00:15:53.234 --> 00:15:54.335
  • "And that book is the Bookof Life, and the dead were
  • 00:15:54.435 --> 00:15:56.604
  • judged according to theirworks by the things which
  • 00:15:56.704 --> 00:16:00.775
  • were written inthe books", plural.
  • 00:16:00.875 --> 00:16:04.579
  • "The sea gave up the deadwho were in it, and Death
  • 00:16:04.679 --> 00:16:06.981
  • and Hades", remember Hadesis the Greek word for hell,
  • 00:16:07.081 --> 00:16:09.917
  • "delivered up the dead whowere in them, and they were
  • 00:16:10.018 --> 00:16:12.453
  • judged, each oneaccording to his works."
  • 00:16:12.553 --> 00:16:17.692
  • Now, I asked you aquestion a moment ago.
  • 00:16:17.792 --> 00:16:20.261
  • Will a believer who reallydoesn't give, or love, or serve,
  • 00:16:20.361 --> 00:16:24.532
  • get the same rewardas the believer who sacrifices,
  • 00:16:24.632 --> 00:16:27.101
  • gives generously, tithes,witnesses, serves?
  • 00:16:27.201 --> 00:16:30.772
  • Will they getthe same reward?
  • 00:16:30.872 --> 00:16:32.040
  • Obviously, if you thinkabout it, no, they won't get
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:33.641
  • the same reward.
  • 00:16:33.741 --> 00:16:34.842
  • We're going to be rewardedfor our good works,
  • 00:16:34.942 --> 00:16:37.178
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:16:37.278 --> 00:16:38.079
  • Okay.
  • 00:16:38.179 --> 00:16:39.714
  • Will an unbeliever, will anunbeliever who does not give
  • 00:16:39.814 --> 00:16:46.821
  • his life to Jesus, buthe's a good man,
  • 00:16:46.921 --> 00:16:49.857
  • he just obstinately says, "No, Idon't believe in God,
  • 00:16:49.957 --> 00:16:52.427
  • I don't believe in JesusChrist, I will not give my life
  • 00:16:52.527 --> 00:16:55.363
  • to Jesus", but hegoes to work, and he has
  • 00:16:55.463 --> 00:16:58.332
  • a family, and he just kind ofhas a normal life,
  • 00:16:58.433 --> 00:17:01.302
  • but he obstinately refuses togive his life to Jesus, will he
  • 00:17:01.402 --> 00:17:04.839
  • receive the same punishmentas a murderer and a rapist?
  • 00:17:04.939 --> 00:17:13.614
  • No.
  • 00:17:13.714 --> 00:17:14.715
  • It's different.
  • 00:17:14.816 --> 00:17:15.850
  • There are degrees ofpunishment, and I'm gonna show
  • 00:17:15.950 --> 00:17:18.319
  • it to you in the Bible.
  • 00:17:18.419 --> 00:17:19.454
  • Think about this.
  • 00:17:19.554 --> 00:17:20.955
  • Here's the guy who's a good guy,but he doesn't give his
  • 00:17:21.055 --> 00:17:23.224
  • life to Jesus.
  • 00:17:23.324 --> 00:17:24.425
  • He's gonna go to hell.
  • 00:17:24.525 --> 00:17:27.028
  • And, here's Hitler, whomurdered six million Jews.
  • 00:17:27.128 --> 00:17:31.732
  • God's a just God.
  • 00:17:31.833 --> 00:17:34.902
  • Hitler will be recompensedfor his works.
  • 00:17:35.002 --> 00:17:40.108
  • He will receivepunishment for his works.
  • 00:17:40.208 --> 00:17:43.311
  • Let me show youJesus' own words.
  • 00:17:43.411 --> 00:17:46.914
  • Matthew 11:21, "Woeto you, Chorazin!
  • 00:17:47.014 --> 00:17:51.219
  • Woe to you, Bethsaida!
  • 00:17:51.319 --> 00:17:53.321
  • For if the mighty workswhich were done in you
  • 00:17:53.421 --> 00:17:56.357
  • had been done in Tyre and Sidon,they would have repented
  • 00:17:56.457 --> 00:18:00.862
  • long ago insackcloth and ashes.
  • 00:18:00.962 --> 00:18:03.598
  • But I say to you, itwill be more tolerable."
  • 00:18:03.698 --> 00:18:09.103
  • This in the Greek, by the way,means less suffering
  • 00:18:09.203 --> 00:18:12.373
  • or more lenient.
  • 00:18:12.473 --> 00:18:15.376
  • "It will be more tolerable"how could it be more or less
  • 00:18:15.476 --> 00:18:18.012
  • if it's both the same?
  • 00:18:18.112 --> 00:18:19.881
  • "For Tyre and Sidon in theday of judgment than for you.
  • 00:18:19.981 --> 00:18:24.018
  • And you, Capernaum", andnotice again in the day
  • 00:18:24.118 --> 00:18:26.521
  • of judgment.
  • 00:18:26.621 --> 00:18:27.655
  • "And you, Capernaum, who areexalted to heaven,
  • 00:18:27.755 --> 00:18:29.991
  • will be brought down to Hades",or hell, "for if the mighty
  • 00:18:30.091 --> 00:18:33.227
  • works which were donein you", now, watch.
  • 00:18:33.327 --> 00:18:35.029
  • This is an amazing statementJesus is about to make.
  • 00:18:35.129 --> 00:18:37.431
  • "If the mighty works whichwere done in you had been
  • 00:18:37.532 --> 00:18:39.600
  • done in Sodom, it would haveremained until this day."
  • 00:18:39.700 --> 00:18:45.106
  • In other words, Sodomwould have repented.
  • 00:18:45.206 --> 00:18:47.275
  • "But I say to you that itshall be more tolerable
  • 00:18:47.375 --> 00:18:50.344
  • for the land of Sodom", Sodomand Gomorrah,"in the day
  • 00:18:50.444 --> 00:18:54.048
  • of judgment than for you."
  • 00:18:54.148 --> 00:18:57.919
  • This is amazing!
  • 00:18:58.019 --> 00:18:59.453
  • This is amazing.
  • 00:18:59.554 --> 00:19:01.189
  • And you know what was donein Capernaum, Chorazin,
  • 00:19:01.289 --> 00:19:04.258
  • and Bethsaida?
  • 00:19:04.358 --> 00:19:05.726
  • The works, the mightyworks that were done?
  • 00:19:05.826 --> 00:19:07.128
  • Jesus!
  • 00:19:07.228 --> 00:19:08.396
  • Jesus Himself was in thosecities doing miracles,
  • 00:19:08.496 --> 00:19:12.700
  • healing people, andpreaching the gospel,
  • 00:19:12.800 --> 00:19:15.970
  • and they rejected Him.
  • 00:19:16.070 --> 00:19:17.238
  • You know what He said?
  • 00:19:17.338 --> 00:19:18.372
  • If I had gone to Sodom,they would have repented.
  • 00:19:18.472 --> 00:19:21.108
  • And God knowspeoples' hearts.
  • 00:19:21.209 --> 00:19:23.811
  • This is Jesus talking!
  • 00:19:23.911 --> 00:19:25.012
  • We can't argue with it.
  • 00:19:25.112 --> 00:19:25.846
  • This is Jesus!
  • 00:19:25.947 --> 00:19:27.014
  • Jesus said Sodom would haveremained until this day.
  • 00:19:27.114 --> 00:19:30.651
  • We would not havedestroyed Sodom with fire.
  • 00:19:30.751 --> 00:19:32.987
  • They would have repented.
  • 00:19:33.087 --> 00:19:34.589
  • And I'm tellin' you, it'sgonna be more tolerable
  • 00:19:34.689 --> 00:19:37.458
  • for Sodom in the day of judgmentthan it will for you.
  • 00:19:37.558 --> 00:19:42.330
  • Let me read you thisverse out of Romans 2:5.
  • 00:19:42.430 --> 00:19:44.599
  • "But in accordance", inaccordance, or to the degree,
  • 00:19:44.699 --> 00:19:48.002
  • "with your hardnessand your impenitent heart,
  • 00:19:48.102 --> 00:19:52.506
  • you are treasuring up foryourself wrath in the day
  • 00:19:52.607 --> 00:19:58.312
  • of wrath and revelation of therighteous judgment of God."
  • 00:19:58.412 --> 00:20:05.686
  • He's talkin' tounbelievers here.
  • 00:20:05.786 --> 00:20:07.288
  • He said, you knowwhat you're doin'?
  • 00:20:07.388 --> 00:20:08.422
  • You're storing up too, butyou're storing up wrath.
  • 00:20:08.522 --> 00:20:12.260
  • You have to go back tothe attributes of God.
  • 00:20:12.360 --> 00:20:15.830
  • Yes, God is love, God is mercy,God is grace, God is omniscient,
  • 00:20:15.930 --> 00:20:20.001
  • God is omnipotent,but God is just.
  • 00:20:20.101 --> 00:20:24.839
  • And a just God is going tojudge each and every person
  • 00:20:24.939 --> 00:20:31.746
  • one day, and believers willbe rewarded and unbelievers
  • 00:20:31.846 --> 00:20:35.716
  • will be punished for theirworks on this earth.
  • 00:20:35.816 --> 00:20:40.788
  • Now, I said this a few weeksago, but I really need
  • 00:20:40.888 --> 00:20:42.957
  • to say it again.
  • 00:20:43.057 --> 00:20:44.525
  • I know this is heavy.
  • 00:20:44.625 --> 00:20:46.327
  • I know what I'mtelling you is heavy.
  • 00:20:46.427 --> 00:20:47.695
  • Listen to me, though.
  • 00:20:47.795 --> 00:20:49.630
  • I feel like the doctor thatis saying to you, you have
  • 00:20:49.730 --> 00:20:54.235
  • a disease and if you don'ttreat it, you will die,
  • 00:20:54.335 --> 00:20:59.540
  • but there is a cure.
  • 00:20:59.640 --> 00:21:02.910
  • There is a cure.
  • 00:21:03.010 --> 00:21:04.111
  • So, I'm not saying thesethings to scare you!
  • 00:21:04.211 --> 00:21:06.213
  • I'm simply telling you thetruth from God's word.
  • 00:21:06.314 --> 00:21:08.983
  • There is a judgmentday coming!
  • 00:21:09.083 --> 00:21:12.320
  • And every person will standbefore the judgment seat
  • 00:21:12.420 --> 00:21:14.989
  • of God, every person, whetherit's the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:21:15.089 --> 00:21:17.458
  • or the Great WhiteThrone Judgment, every person.
  • 00:21:17.558 --> 00:21:19.994
  • I'm not trying to scare you,I'm simply telling you,
  • 00:21:20.094 --> 00:21:22.363
  • there's a cure.
  • 00:21:22.463 --> 00:21:24.165
  • There's a cure, and it is togive your life to Jesus,
  • 00:21:24.265 --> 00:21:27.668
  • and to sell out to Him, andto serve Him completely.
  • 00:21:27.768 --> 00:21:31.372
  • Remember I told you about ifI had known that the camp
  • 00:21:31.472 --> 00:21:34.909
  • was giving awards I wouldn'thave goofed off so much?
  • 00:21:35.009 --> 00:21:37.712
  • I did a lot of thingsgrowing up not thinking
  • 00:21:37.812 --> 00:21:39.613
  • of consequences, unfortunately.
  • 00:21:39.714 --> 00:21:41.982
  • And I remember I used tohang out, now,
  • 00:21:42.083 --> 00:21:46.287
  • this is going to date me.
  • 00:21:46.387 --> 00:21:47.655
  • I understand that.
  • 00:21:47.755 --> 00:21:49.056
  • But, the hangout when I wasgrowing up was the skating rink.
  • 00:21:49.156 --> 00:21:55.830
  • How many of you used to hangout at the skating rink?
  • 00:21:55.930 --> 00:21:59.166
  • Okay.
  • 00:21:59.266 --> 00:22:00.201
  • See, these are the olderpeople in the crowd.
  • 00:22:00.301 --> 00:22:01.969
  • Okay?
  • 00:22:02.069 --> 00:22:02.670
  • All right.
  • 00:22:02.770 --> 00:22:05.539
  • And my fatherdropped me off.
  • 00:22:05.639 --> 00:22:07.375
  • I didn't have a driver'slicense at this time.
  • 00:22:07.475 --> 00:22:08.943
  • Dropped me off at a skatingrink, but knew that I was up
  • 00:22:09.043 --> 00:22:11.345
  • to no good.
  • 00:22:11.445 --> 00:22:12.546
  • Now, I was beginning to hangout with the wrong crowd,
  • 00:22:12.646 --> 00:22:14.915
  • so after he dropped me off, hekind of circled the block
  • 00:22:15.015 --> 00:22:17.017
  • and came back.
  • 00:22:17.118 --> 00:22:20.020
  • And then, he watched from ahiding place, which I don't
  • 00:22:20.121 --> 00:22:23.424
  • think was fair, by the way.
  • 00:22:23.524 --> 00:22:25.092
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:25.192 --> 00:22:27.128
  • I was reminded when I waspreparing this message,
  • 00:22:27.228 --> 00:22:29.163
  • it says, "The Father,who sees in secret."
  • 00:22:29.263 --> 00:22:33.801
  • Okay, I had that father!
  • 00:22:33.901 --> 00:22:37.638
  • He watched from a hidingplace, and I started,
  • 00:22:37.738 --> 00:22:41.175
  • because I thought it wastough and cool,
  • 00:22:41.275 --> 00:22:42.910
  • and I had such a severerejection problem.
  • 00:22:43.010 --> 00:22:45.179
  • I wanted to be accepted.
  • 00:22:45.279 --> 00:22:46.347
  • I'd started smokingcigarettes.
  • 00:22:46.447 --> 00:22:48.682
  • He knew where that wouldlead, which it did.
  • 00:22:48.783 --> 00:22:50.684
  • It led then todrinking and drugs.
  • 00:22:50.785 --> 00:22:52.453
  • That's where I went fromthere, because it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:52.553 --> 00:22:55.723
  • It wasn't the cigarettes,it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:55.823 --> 00:22:57.725
  • That was the problem.
  • 00:22:57.825 --> 00:22:58.893
  • And so, he knew that, and sohe watched that night,
  • 00:22:58.993 --> 00:23:02.630
  • the whole night I was there,until he picked me up
  • 00:23:02.730 --> 00:23:05.132
  • at the designated time.
  • 00:23:05.232 --> 00:23:07.134
  • He drove around the blockagain and he was very sneaky,
  • 00:23:07.234 --> 00:23:10.037
  • very sneaky!
  • 00:23:10.137 --> 00:23:11.705
  • And, picked me up and thenwe got home, and he asked
  • 00:23:11.806 --> 00:23:14.408
  • about the cigarettes.
  • 00:23:14.508 --> 00:23:15.543
  • I lied, of course.
  • 00:23:15.643 --> 00:23:16.710
  • Finally, he produced theevidence, and here's what he
  • 00:23:16.811 --> 00:23:19.747
  • did though.
  • 00:23:19.847 --> 00:23:21.048
  • He punished me according tothe number of cigarettes
  • 00:23:21.148 --> 00:23:24.785
  • I smoked.
  • 00:23:24.885 --> 00:23:28.022
  • In other words, hepunished, if you smoked
  • 00:23:28.122 --> 00:23:30.691
  • this many.
  • 00:23:30.791 --> 00:23:32.026
  • If you'd have just smoked two,it would have been this long,
  • 00:23:32.126 --> 00:23:33.761
  • but you smoked, youknow, whatever it was.
  • 00:23:33.861 --> 00:23:35.763
  • And so, again, here's thethought that came to me.
  • 00:23:35.863 --> 00:23:39.200
  • If I had known!
  • 00:23:39.300 --> 00:23:41.001
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:23:41.101 --> 00:23:43.838
  • It was the same thoughtthat I had at camp!
  • 00:23:43.938 --> 00:23:47.341
  • If I had known they weregiving awards,
  • 00:23:47.441 --> 00:23:48.776
  • I would have acted differently!
  • 00:23:48.876 --> 00:23:50.444
  • If I had known that mypunishment would
  • 00:23:50.544 --> 00:23:52.413
  • be in proportion to mysin, are you listening?
  • 00:23:52.513 --> 00:24:03.791
  • Now, let me sayone other thing.
  • 00:24:03.891 --> 00:24:06.760
  • Everyone at the JudgmentSeat's a believer.
  • 00:24:06.861 --> 00:24:10.030
  • Everyone at the Great WhiteThrone Judgment
  • 00:24:10.130 --> 00:24:12.166
  • is an unbeliever.
  • 00:24:12.266 --> 00:24:13.467
  • But, listen to me carefully.
  • 00:24:13.567 --> 00:24:15.336
  • It's your choice whichjudgment you attend.
  • 00:24:15.436 --> 00:24:23.143
  • It's your choice.
  • 00:24:23.244 --> 00:24:25.346
  • PASTOR ROBERT: Remember,our belief determines
  • 00:24:25.446 --> 00:24:27.581
  • where we spend eternity,and our behavior determines
  • 00:24:27.681 --> 00:24:31.118
  • how we spend eternity.
  • 00:24:31.218 --> 00:24:33.254
  • So, I first want toencourage those of you who
  • 00:24:33.354 --> 00:24:35.322
  • are believers to live yourlives in such a way that God
  • 00:24:35.422 --> 00:24:40.394
  • will reward you foryour good works.
  • 00:24:40.494 --> 00:24:43.163
  • That's what the Bible says.
  • 00:24:43.264 --> 00:24:45.032
  • I also want to encouragethose of you who've never given
  • 00:24:45.132 --> 00:24:47.268
  • your lives to JesusChrist that you are not watching
  • 00:24:47.368 --> 00:24:50.671

  • and for my sins, and thateternal life is a free gift
  • 00:25:03.951 --> 00:25:08.088
  • of God that we can neverearn, but we can receive it.
  • 00:25:08.188 --> 00:25:12.793
  • And I want to encourage youto receive Jesus today.
  • 00:25:12.893 --> 00:25:17.364

  • and overwhelming to think about.
  • 00:25:34.481 --> 00:25:36.183
  • Just the thought of it raisesquestion after question.
  • 00:25:36.283 --> 00:25:39.086
  • What's Heaven like?
  • 00:25:39.186 --> 00:25:40.321
  • Is there a literal Hell?
  • 00:25:40.421 --> 00:25:41.789
