LISTEN: The Free State of Glory (Part 48): Those Within and Those Without, Part 6 (Second Coming Chapel with Daniel Whyte III)

TEXT: Revelation 22:13-15

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The Free State of Glory (Part 48): Those Within and Those Without, Part 6

In John 10:10, Jesus Christ declared, “I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” In John 14:6, He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” When man sinned, he immediately experienced spiritual death, he began the process of physical death, and if he continues in sin, he eventually experiences eternal death. But, for those who are within the city, the New Jerusalem, all three types of death are reversed. In the New Jerusalem, we will be spiritually alive because of our relationship with Christ, we will be physically alive with new resurrection bodies, and we will be eternally alive, living with God forever and ever.

So, it makes sense that the next type of person mentioned as being without the city of God is “murderers.” The word murder means one who kills another intentionally or one who commits homicide.

According to Baker’s Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology, “Although the Israelites did not have a term that precisely fits our present-day idea of murder, they differentiated among killing, manslaughter, and murder in their legal terminology. The Hebrew word that was used in the Sixth Commandment for ‘kill’ (or murder) was the somewhat rare term ‘rasah.’ Although its exact meaning has defied explanation, in other contexts it could refer to killing that was inherently evil. The death penalty was posed for one who killed with premeditation, but not for accidental manslaughter. In fact, premeditated murder did not require a trial. Thus, the Old Testament saw a fundamental difference between the two types of homicide, providing two levels of meaning for ‘rasah’. Although the New Testament writers lived in a different legal environment, they were consistent in their view of murder with their Old Testament counterparts. Jesus interpreted the sixth commandment differently than the contemporary Jewish scholars (who had a narrowly literal view), and agreed with the spirit of the Old Testament law on homicide. The death of Christ was the supreme example of murder in the Scriptures. Christ was symbolized as the slaughtered Lamb, signifying his humble obedience and innocence.”

According to the Oxford Dictionary of the English Language, murder is “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.”

Every day we read stories of men and women taking the lives of other people. Family disputes have ended in murder. Terrorists perpetrate acts of indiscriminate murder on innocent people. Mass murderers, like the one who killed 26 people in a Texas church two weekends ago, end lives on a large and horrific scale.

In Genesis, we read that God breathed into man the “breath of life.” The taking of this life at the hands of another sinful man is an irreversible crime and an assault on God’s image which every human being is made in. Taking a life is the opposite of God’s will. In John 10, Jesus said that Satan comes “only to steal, kill, and destroy.” The devil deals in death, and those who traffick death like him will not have a place in the New Jerusalem. Within the walls of the New Jerusalem is life, and those who enjoy it more abundantly.

If you are not a believer, you will be condemned to remain without the gates of Heaven. Make sure you are within by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Allow me to show you how you can do that right now.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The Free State of Glory (Part 40) — The Reward of Believers: 5 Heavenly Crowns, Part 7

TEXT: Revelation 22:10-13

10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

— PRAYER —

The Free State of Glory (Part 40) — The Reward of Believers: 5 Heavenly Crowns, Part 7

In our last message, we began looking at the fourth crown — the “crown of glory.” The Apostle Peter mentions this crown in his first epistle in the context of describing the duties of pastors or elders in the church. He says in First Peter 5:2-4: “The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.”

Commentators have noted that the “crown of glory” is not for elders or pastors only, but they do have a special calling to care for God’s sheep by following the example of the Chief Shepherd Jesus Christ. In this day and time, we have too many pastors/elders who are seeking “glory” in this present world. Instead of feeding the flock of God, they are feeding their own egos. Instead of serving with a ready or eager mind, they are doing it for money or filthy lucre. Instead of being humble examples to God’s flock, they see themselves as “lords” over the people. Because of their selfish and self-serving behavior, some may receive temporary crowns on earth, but they will not receive the “crown of glory which fadeth not away.”

The crown of glory belongs to those who, like Peter, share in the suffering of Christ. The pastors who will win this crown must be willing to serve, to go without recognition, to give money rather than take it. They can do this if they realize that, like Peter, they are also “partakers of the glory that shall be revealed.” A partaker is “one who participates with another in an enterprise.” Pastors, elders, and all faithful Christians are participating in the Gospel enterprise. Our service for Christ might not seem like it is bringing great dividends here on earth. But, we must remember that our treasure is stored up in Heaven. If we invest in Heaven, we are investing in the future manifestation of the glory of God on earth. And, if we follow the guidelines laid down in this passage, we may receive a “crown of glory” as a reward for faithful service to Christ and to His flock.

Thomas Kelly wrote:

Crowns of glory ever bright,
Rest upon the Conqueror’s Head;
Crowns of glory are His right, —
His Who liveth and was dead.

He subdued the powers of hell;
In the fight He stood alone:
All His foes before him fell,
By His single Arm o’erthrown.

His the battle, His the toil;
His the honors of the day;
His the glory and the spoil:
Jesus bears them all away.

Now we proclaim His deeds afar;
We serve His flock, we tell His story;
Faithful service is our charge
that we receive a crown of glory.

If you are not a believer, all the rewards that you receive on earth will one day perish. But, by serving Christ, you can gain eternal, imperishable, and incorruptible rewards. I invite you to place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Allow me to show you how you can do that right now.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

The Free State of Glory (Part 39) — The Reward of Believers: 5 Heavenly Crowns, Part 6

The Free State of Glory (Part 39) — The Reward of Believers: 5 Heavenly Crowns, Part 6

Today, we are going to continue looking at the five “crowns” spoken of in Scripture as rewards for believers. The first crown is the “imperishable crown” which is given to those who give their all in service to Christ; the second crown is the “crown of rejoicing” which is received by those who win souls for Christ and help disciple new believers; and the third crown is “the crown of righteousness” which is given to those who finish their course well on this earth and who look for and love the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The fourth crown is the “crown of glory,” which Peter writes about in his first epistle. First Peter 5:4 says, “When the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” In this passage, Peter is talking to elders or shepherds in the church, those who are over other believers. He says, “The elders which are among you I exhort, Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.”

Commentators have pointed out that the “crown of glory” is not for elders or pastors only, but they do have a special calling to care for God’s sheep by following the example of the Chief Shepherd Jesus Christ. Chuck Swindoll writes, “With regard to the role of leaders in the church, Peter has pointed out two effective principles: pride of position must be absent, and the heart of a shepherd must be present. He then illustrated the shepherd’s heart with three essential attitudes: willingness, eagerness, and meekness. Granted, shepherding the flock of God can involve hard work. This is why Peter ends his address to the elder-pastors of the churches with a reminder of their eternal reward. If Christ’s shepherds faithfully discharge their duties with the proper attitudes, they will receive ‘the unfading crown of glory’ from Christ at His return. As the ‘Chief Shepherd,’ Jesus serves as the model of how His earthly shepherds are to serve. As such, Christ Himself is the perfect model of ministry.”

In this day and time, we have too many pastors/elders who are seeking “glory” in this present world. Instead of feeding the flock of God, they are feeding their own egos. Instead of serving with a ready or eager mind, they are doing it for money or filthy lucre. Instead of being humble examples to God’s flock, they see themselves as “lords” over the people. Because of their selfish and self-serving behavior, some elders may receive temporary crowns on earth, but they will not receive the “crown of glory which fadeth not away.” Only those who share in the suffering and service of Christ here on earth will be able to enjoy the glory of Christ in Heaven.

The Free State of Glory, Part 4 (Second Coming Chapel)

city-2


TEXT: Revelation 21:1-7

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

The Free State of Glory (Part 4)

People, today, of all walks of life, are fascinated by the afterlife and Heaven. Over the past decade, a handful of books by and about people who have died, gone to Heaven, and come back to tell about it have repeatedly topped bestsellers lists. Movies have been made out of two of those accounts. Some Christians point to these stories as proof that Heaven exists and that it is as wonderful as the Bible states. Skeptics attack these stories as either illusions that a person endured while close to death or outright lies meant to deceive the gullible. If we want certainty about Heaven, where can we look? It is not to a book written by a human being, but to the Bible and to Jesus Christ. Notice three key attributes of our beliefs about Heaven.

First, we can have certainty about Heaven because of Jesus Christ. John tells us that Jesus told him to “Write: for these words are true and faithful…. It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.” John did not dream about Heaven. He did not make up what he thought Heaven would be like. He was ‘caught up in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day’ and received a vision about Heaven and an explanation about Heaven from none other than Jesus Christ who cannot lie. Jesus’ words are true and faithful. We can trust them. But not only can we trust that we have the truth about Heaven because of Jesus’ words, but we can trust that we have the truth about Heaven because of Jesus’ person. The Lord states that He is “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.” Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. All of the books in the New Testament were written with just the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet. There is nothing outside of Alpha and Omega; Jesus uses this comparison to emphasize that there is nothing outside of Himself. He is the beginning and the end. All of time, history, and eternity are wrapped up in Him. He is the consummator of all things. We can have certainty about Heaven because Jesus is the One who revealed Heaven to John and to us.

Not only can we have certainty about Heaven, but notice that we should have a thirst for Heaven. Jesus says, “I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” Dr. John Walvoord and Dr. Roy Zuck state that this “apparently refers not to physical thirst, but to a desire for spiritual blessings.” Do you desire to receive all of the benefits of a home in Heaven? Are you tired of this old world and the mock pleasures that it has to offer? Have you begun already to say, ‘this world is not my home’? While we are down here on this earth, it is okay to have a desire for Heaven. That desire should remind us that Jesus is preparing a place for us in His eternal kingdom — a place where there will be no more sin and no more suffering. If you are hungry for that place and the spiritual blessings that come with it, you can rest assured that you will be satisfied when you get there. Jesus Christ Himself has promised to allow you to drink freely of the water of life.

Finally, not only can we be certain about Heaven and not only should we have a thirst for Heaven, but we ought to keep in mind the inheritance that awaits us in Heaven. Jesus continues, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” Who is “he that overcometh”? First John 5:5 answers, it is “he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” No matter how downtrodden we may be in life, all believers will eventually overcome because Jesus Christ overcame. Nothing could hold Jesus down; He rose from the grave, from death, and from hell. And because we are in Him, we will also rise. Because we are in Him, we will take part in the inheritance of Heaven — an inheritance that includes “all things.” All of the spiritual and physical blessings of Heaven will one day belong to us because we are overcomers in Christ and we are a part of God’s family through Jesus’ shed blood.

As we go through life with so much sin and death around us (and unfortunately within us), we can be certain about where we are going at the end of our life. We are going to Heaven not because of who we are or what we have done, but because of Jesus Christ who is the beginning and the end of all things. Through Him, our thirst for things that are not of this world will be satisfied and we will overcome everything that is in this world and enjoy our inheritance in Heaven for eternity.

C.A. Tindley wrote:

This world is one great battlefield,
With forces all arrayed;
If in my heart I do not yield
I’ll overcome someday.

Both seen and unseen powers join
To drive my soul astray,
But with God’s Word a sword of mine,
I’ll overcome someday.

A thousand snares are set for me,
And mountains in my way;
If Jesus will my leader be,
I’ll overcome someday.

Tho’ many a time no signs appear,
Of answer when I pray;
My Jesus says I need not fear,
I’ll overcome someday.

Dear friend, wouldn’t you like to enjoy that glorious day — a day where there will be no more tears, no more crying, no more death, no more pain, and no more sorrow? Yes, you can have a home in the new heaven and the new earth if you place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior from sin and the consequences of sin. Allow me to share with you how you can do that today so that you can be ready for His return.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven.

TEXT: Revelation 21:1-7

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

The Free State of Glory (Part 2)

In our last message, we looked at the magnificent transition that is in store for the world. This broken, sin-cursed world will give way to a new heaven and a new earth. The new creation will be populated by new men and women in Christ who are free from sin and the effects of sin. However, the greatest thing about this new glorified state is not the new heaven and the new earth, nor even the new people who live in it. The greatest thing is found in the fact that God will come down to abide with His people once and for all. This starts with the descent of the Holy City.

John writes, “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” The Biblical writers had three different perspectives on Heaven. The first heaven refers to earth’s atmosphere where the clouds and the firmament exist. The second heaven refers to outer space where the sun, moon, stars, and distant planets reside. The third heaven refers to God’s abode. It is from this place that the heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, will come down.

Dr. John Walvoord writes, “The New Jerusalem is called ‘the Holy City’, in contrast with the earthly Jerusalem (which spiritually was compared to Sodom). The fact that the New Jerusalem comes down from heaven and that it is not said to be created at this point has raised the question as to whether it has been in existence during the Millennium.” Some scholars believe that this New Jerusalem will be suspended over the Earth during the Millennium, but “this is an inference rather than a direct revelation of the Bible.” “Here, however, the New Jerusalem is described as it will be in the eternal state… Though the city is compared to a beautifully dressed bride, it actually is a city, not a person or group of people.”

This city is God’s city. It is the “place” to which Jesus referred to when He said, “I am going to prepare a place for you.” All who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ have an address waiting for them in the New Jerusalem. The Old Testament saints and the Tribulation saints also will abide in this city. However, the biggest presence in the city will be God himself. John continues, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

After the Jews were delivered from Egypt, God commanded them to make a tabernacle. The tabernacle was always placed in the middle of the Hebrew camp. it was intended to symbolize God’s potent physical presence with His people. God was with them at all times and they were with God. Later on, Solomon built a Temple, and God’s presence inhabited this building, again symbolizing His presence with His people. Unfortunately, because of the people’s sin and rebellion God’s presence was removed. Presently, God regards every believer as a tabernacle, and His Holy Spirit resides in each of our hearts. In that way, He is with us at all times.

However, the tabernacle of the glorified state is different. Notice, John says this is “the tabernacle of God”; not just a tabernacle inhabited by God, but a tabernacle made by God. The entire city, the entire world even, is a tabernacle brought forth by God. His presence will permeate every aspect of it. Everyone who lives in the New Jerusalem or anywhere in the New Earth will be in constant communion with God. Even though His Spirit abides in us today, we still have to exist in the here and now, dealing with earthly concerns as fallen men and women. But we can look forward to the day when we will be with Him and love Him and enjoy Him forever.

Witness Lee wrote:

In new heaven and new earth
The New Jerusalem lies;
Out of God it has its birth,
With God’s radiance thrice.

There, life’s crystal river flows
With an abundance of supplies,
And the tree of life there grows
All I need it satisfies.

God is there, the great I AM
In that city of eternal light;
God is the light within the Lamb,
And there never again is night.

Dear friend, you can have a home in the new heaven and the new earth if you place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior from sin and the consequences of sin. Allow me to share with you how you can do that today so that you can be ready for His return.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The State of Glory (Part 1)

John F. Walvoord states about these opening verses, “The opening verses of chapter 21 describe the creation of the new heaven and the new earth, which chronologically follows the thousand-year reign of Christ described in chapter 20. Chapter 21 begins with the familiar words I saw, an expression repeated in verse 2. This new creation is described as a new heaven and a new earth. That it is a totally new heaven and a new earth, and not the present heaven and earth renovated, is supported by the additional statement, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. An amazingly small amount of information is given about the new heaven and the new earth. But one major fact is stated in this verse: there was no longer any sea. In contrast with the present earth, which has most of its surface covered by water, no large body of water will be on the new earth. The Bible is silent, however, on any features of the first heaven except the statement that there will be no sun or moon and, by implication, no stars. The new heaven refers not to the abode of God, but to the earth’s atmosphere and planetary space. No landmarks whatever are given concerning the new earth, and nothing is known of its characteristics, vegetation, color, or form. The implication, however, is that it is round and is the residence of all who are saved.”

As we have studied Scripture about the Second Coming of Christ and the last days, we have overwhelmingly focused on the judgments of God. We have learned about God’s dealings with Israel, the judgment of the world during the Tribulation, the judgment of the Antichrist and his army, the judgment of the Gentile nations before the Millennial Kingdom, the final judgment of Satan, and the judgment of the living dead at the Great White Throne.

Now, we come to a happier time in the book of Revelation. Chronologically, the world described in Revelation 21 and 22 occurs after the Great White Throne Judgment. It is the beginning of an entirely new age when God’s people are unified with Him for eternity. This is the point where time and history come to a close and the eternal future begins. Dr. Warren Wiersbe said, “Human history begins in a garden and ends in a city that is like a garden paradise. In the apostle John’s day, Rome was the admired city, yet God compared it to a harlot. ‘That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.’ The eternal city of God is compared to a beautiful bride because it is the eternal home for God’s beloved people.”

How do we get from the days of judgment to this glorified state? How do we get from the cities of this world to the city of God. How do we get from the old world to the new as described by John: “I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away…”

The “first heaven and the first earth” is the world we inhabit now. When God created this world, it was perfect. Nothing was out of place. There was not even a blade of grass growing where it was not supposed to grow. Man, too, was perfect, and that was because he was in holy communion and fellowship with God. However, the world we live in today is not perfect because of man’s sin. When man sinned, not only was he cursed, but the earth was cursed. Things began to go wrong. Animals turned violent and predatory. The ground, which was once supple and pliable beneath Adam’s hand, became difficult to cultivate. Man had to sweat and labor to get food from the earth. Erratic weather patterns causing hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters are ultimately a result of a sin-cursed earth. That is what John means when he writes about the “first heaven and the first earth.”

But, one day, the first heaven and the first earth will make way for a new heaven and a new earth. Peter describes the ‘heavens as passing away with a great noise, the elements melting with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are therein being burned up.’ And Jesus said that the heaven and the earth will “pass away.” God will replace this old earth with a new one. The term ‘new’, as used here, means new in character, not just newly made. The character of the new earth will be different from the character of the earth today. It will no longer be subjected to the curse of sin. Animals will no longer be violent and predatory. The ground will no longer be rabid and difficult to maintain. And, most of all, man will no longer be in his fallen sinful condition, but in a glorified state — able to experience all of the blessings of being in the presence of God.

The world today seems to be falling apart. Many people who have put their trust in politics, science, or academics are losing hope. But, for the Christian, our hope is not in this world — this heaven and this earth. Our hope is in God who will make a new heaven and a new earth where we will live with Him forever..

Christopher M. Idle wrote:

I saw a new heaven and earth,
for the first had passed away;
the holy city came down from God
like a bride on her wedding day.

And I know how he loves his own,
for I heard his great voice tell
how we would be His people
and among us He came to dwell.

He will wipe away every tear;
even death shall die at last.
There’ll be no more grief or pain
they belong to the world that’s past.

The Judgment of the Living Dead, Part 16 (Second Coming Chapel)

city-2


TEXT: Revelation 20:11-15

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that 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, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The Judgment of the Living Dead (Part 16)

Tim Lahaye said, “You have just read the most awesome passage found anywhere in the Bible. It is the sobering truth of our ultimate encounter with God. The story is told of the great statesman Daniel Webster, toward the twilight of his life, attending a luncheon meeting with some younger government leaders. The chairman of the group turned to Webster and asked, ‘What is the greatest thought that has ever passed through your head?’ Quick as a flash Daniel Webster replied, ‘My accountability to God.’ Nowhere is one’s accountability to God more clearly defined than in this passage of Scripture.”

In order to fully understand the reality of the judgment of Hell and the Lake of Fire, we have begun looking at the major aspects of Hell. In other words, we are answering the question, What kind of place is the Lake of Fire? There are twelve main aspects of the Lake of Fire spoken of in the Bible. We have already looked at ten of them:

1. The Lake of Fire is a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.
2. The Lake of Fire is a place of outer darkness.
3. The Lake of Fire is a place of multiple torments.
4. The Lake of Fire is a place of sorrows.
5. The Lake of Fire is a place of unsatisfied desires.
6. The Lake of Fire is a place of hopelessness.
7. The Lake of Fire is a place of bitter memory.
8. The Lake of Fire is a place of no rest.
9. The Lake of Fire is a place where the fire never goes out.
10. The Lake of Fire is a place prepared for the devil and his angels.

Today, I call your attention to the fact that the Lake of Fire is a place where there are degrees of punishment, but no mercy.

The Scriptural foundation for this truth is primarily found right here in Revelation 20. Verse 12 says that when the dead stand before God, ‘the books will be opened: and another book will be opened, which is the book of life: and the dead will be judged out of those things which are written in the books, according to their works.” Verse 13 also says that the dead who do not accept Christ are “judged every man according to their works.”

The idea of levels of punishment in Hell was popularized in the Middle Ages in Dante’s Divine Comedy. In the epic poem, there are nine concentric circles, each one containing a harsher punishment for more heinous sins. The outermost circle was reserved for virtuous unbelievers and the innermost circle for Satan and others who committed acts of treachery.

The passage in Revelation is not the only place where judgment according to works is taught. Hank Hanegraaff said, “The canon of Scripture ratifies the common-sense notion that not all sins are created equal. To think a murderous thought is sin; to carry that thought to its logical conclusion is a far graver sin. Every sin is an act of rebellion against a holy God, but some sins carry far more serious consequences than others and thus receive severer punishment in this life and the next. Indeed, according to Scripture the torment of Hitler’s hell will greatly exceed that of the less wicked.”

Jesus Himself espoused this idea in His teachings. He told the Pharisees that they would be punished more severely than others for their willful refusal to believe. He said that the cities of Tyre and Sidon would have a more bearable punishment than the cities of Cho-ra-zin and Bethsaida, both of which refused to believe on Him after He had worked great miracles there. He also told Pilate that the Jews who delivered Him up to be crucified had committed “the greater sin.”

The first set of “books” referred to in Revelation are most likely the books which record all of the actions of human beings — good and bad. Everything you and I have ever done — be it good or bad, significant or insignificant, secret or out in the open — is recorded in Heaven. These books are opened at the Great White Throne Judgment in order to bring the charge of sin against the living dead. Although those who end up at the Great White Throne Judgment will go to the Lake of Fire, the books are consulted in order to determine the intensity of the punishment given to each individual. God is fair. He will not punish those who commit lesser sins in the same way He punishes those responsible for great atrocities such as men of Isis and Hitler.

Of course, this does not make Hell any less of a terrible place. Whatever level of punishment a person receives, it will be painful and eternal. There will be no mercy, and the punishment will never end. Don’t think that you can “take” the punishment in Hell. Instead of bargaining to get as little punishment as possible, why not place your faith and trust in Christ today, and strive for greater rewards in Heaven.

Here is how you can trust Jesus Christ for salvation so that you can completely avoid the Lake of Fire.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him.
