“Christ is the Revelation of God’s Judgment to the Church and NOT the world. -Temitope Ayodeji”
In the last series, we looked at RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD and we shall conclude this series by looking at the last principles of the doctrine of Christ which is
- ETERNAL JUDGMENT
Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of ETERNAL JUDGMENT.
We need to first establish here that the judgment of God is true because He is Truth. He’s the One that will judge the quick and the dead
Acts 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the JUDGE OF QUICK AND DEAD.
2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, WHO SHALL JUDGE THE QUICK AND THE DEAD at his appearing and his kingdom;
1 Peter 4:5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the QUICK AND THE DEAD.
Quick here means being alive. So, when we understand that God is the judge here then it makes us to understand that this Judgement is eternal by the eternal One and it will be according to what everyman has done in his body for which we must appear before Him.
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
That’s why whether we are in this body or absent in this body we must walk worthy to be accepted of Him.
2 Corinthians 5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
God’s eternal judgment therefore speak on how the Lord will judge everyone in righteousness and in truth.
