The Heavenly Throne
When we think of Jesus Christ, we are often reminded of Him when He died on the Cross at Calvary; to save us of our sins, so that anyone who received His gift, could gain eternal salvation by receiving Him as their Lord and Savior.
He is no longer on the Cross...
As our Messiah, he chose to make His appearance to all of us, His creation, as a meek and humble servant. He allowed humanity to kill Him, so He could save us of our sins; eternal forgiveness for those who receive Him as their Lord and Savior. The opportunity to join Him in Paradise for Eternity!
How crazy is that?!
An all-powerful God sacrificing His only Son for us...
What would be crazier?
Correct...Not receiving His gift!
We have free will.
He is not going to make us choose Him.
The All Powerful Ruler of the Entire World descended from the highest point in Heaven down into this horrific, sinful world, to save us, and many have chosen not to receive their eternal salvation.
John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Romans 10:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
The Royal Invitation
Revelation 3:20 (NKJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
Everyone is invited to receive His gift of eternal salvation, His Royal Invitation, but you have to acknowledge the gift by receiving Him, Jesus Christ, as your Lord and Savior.
Can you imagine receiving a Royal Invitation to the biggest event ever in human history, eternity, and choosing not to go?
That is what is happening right now! People are declining the King's Royal Invitation!
The KING of all kings!
Nevertheless, as King of all kings and Lord of all lords, God is also the Supreme Judge of the Universe. He is going to judge everyone.
The Judgment Seat of Christ
2 Corinthians 5:9-11 (NKJV)
9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10 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. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
The Apostasy of the Church
This seems to have been forgotten during this era of the Apostasy of the Church. People have forgotten that we will all be judged whether we believe this or not.
Satan's Greatest Deception
Satan's greatest deception is that he and God don't exist! They both exist. God is still on His Throne. His Throne is over all other thrones. He is still going to judge every individual and every nation. His word hasn't changed.
The Great White Throne Judgment
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
*You are not found in the Book of Life if you haven't received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You still have the opportunity to acknowledge the invitation and receive Him as your Lord and Savior.
An Everlasting Kingdom
Psalm 145:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
