This week we examine
the most awful segment of human history. The Great White Throne Judgment
will be the last time mankind is adjudicated by God. The majority of
humanity will find it horrible since they are not saved.
God spoke through the
prophets in the Old Testament about a final judgment. Jesus warned
repeatedly people when He walked on earth before His crucifixion. Even
after the resurrection, Jesus continued to warn about what would take
place in the end times.
Are people paying
attention? No, the majority of pastors refuse to preach on this subject
since it threatens the income of the church. They are more concerned
about money than warning the lost who attend their assemblies. Is it any
wonder that these wayward shepherds were called hirelings by Jesus
because they arenít feeding the flock?
I can tell you for
sure that I will be at this event at the end of the millennium and so
will you. You will be a bystander if you are saved, but if you have not
been born again, it will be a horrible time as you are judged for your
We are going to see
the biggest courthouse ever. All the resurrected believers will be in
attendance. Television screens will line the walls, and as the people
are brought in to stand before Jesus, we will see their life videos and
hear their pleading to be forgiven. No grace will be extended at this
point, just an expectation of punishment for their unrepentance.
Giant holding cells
around the courthouse will hold every person who died in their sins. We
are talking about the first person to the last individual who died
during the thousand year kingdom. They will all be resurrected with
shameful bodies that are ugly to look upon. These resurrected bodies
will be indestructible, completely impervious to the Lake of Fire, but
still allow the person to feel pain.
The first person
brought in is Adam and there is a gasp among the resurrected believers
when they discover that Adam never repented of his sins. One by one,
they are all brought in to be judged. No one in a resurrected body ages
and therefore it doesnít matter that this trial could take decades as
each person is brought in and a painstakingly accurate video of their
life is shown.
All the people who
have been resurrected from the dead are unsaved and their screams echo
in the courtroom one by one as they are led out. It is not until the
people who lived during the thousand year kingdom that a name is at long
last found in the Book of Life. These people fall on their knees and
worship Jesus on the throne. All the believers in Christ in the gallery
break out in praise so strongly that the walls vibrate from their
voices. It is so contagious that even the holy angels praise God.
murder, scheme and hidden deed will be made public. The American
Christians discover who was behind the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln
and John F. Kennedy.
in the gallery will see everyone who lived on the earth with us. All the
actions of family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and random people at
the store will be revealed.
Many of them will
turn around and look at us in the audience and scream out, ďWhy didnít
you tell me about Jesus? Why didnít you tell me about the Great White
Throne Judgment?Ē They will curse us and tell Jesus that itís not fair
we get to go to heaven after failing to warn people about the looming
peril they will face. Join me this coming Sunday as we examine a
self-inflicted tragedy and what it means for you and me.
Print out the sermon outline and let's examine the
Scriptures together Sunday morning at 9:00 AM PST.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor John S. Torell
