Summary: OUR SIN DEBT HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL AND CAN NOT BE PAID AGAIN
Our sins have ALREADY been JUDGED
Last week I made the statement that Jesus Christ was the Exclusive Savior, well today let me say again that Jesus Christ is still the Exclusive Savior.
John 5:22 22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son,---
Jesus CRIST will save all who’ll call on Him in repentance and ask Him to save them.
1st. tim. 15This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
But if the lost sinner does not accept Jesus as his personal Lord & Savior, then this Savior rejecter will experience first hand that Jesus is the Exclusive SAVIOR.
How is that brother Brown? If the rapture takes place while the lost sinner is still alive he’ll be excluded, if he dies in his sins and the rapture takes place his lost soul will remain in hell, his body will remain in the grave until the 1000 year reign of Jesus has run its coarse and the white throne judgment of the lost comes about, I’ve said all that to say, Jesus saves all who’ll come to Him and excludes all who won’t.
John 1: 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name
At the judgment of the nations just after the tribulation has run its course and Jesus is sitting on His throne of Glory, this is just prior to the millennial reign of King Jesus,
And all nations are before Him, He will put the sheep nations on His right and the goats on His left, this is the judgment of these nations as to how they treated His brethren the Jews during the tribulation, notice He is the Excusive Savior, listen,
Matt. 25: 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
Notice He is the Exclusive Savior, And then to the goats; 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Today Lord willing I’ll try and talk a little about the fact that; our sins have ALREADY been JUDGED listen as I read today’s text found in
John 5:24- 24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life
Because our sins were nailed to the cross with Jesus Christ feeling the full weight of God’s wrath as He hung on Calvary, there are three great truths that assure the believer that he or she does not have to fear coming before God in judgment seeing that the believer has been judged already.
For the Believer Eternal Life is a Present Reality
" hath everlasting life"
Hath - to have in hand, own, possess
John 3:3636He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Listen as I give you this little story; it seems A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO AFTER THE CLOSE OF THE Sunday night SERVICE that this pastor WENT BACK TO THE DOOR TO shake hands with the people as they were leaving.
A LADY TROUBLED ABOUT HER SOUL CAME ALONG, AND HE REACHED OUT HIS HAND AND SAID TO HER, "WELL, HOW IS IT WITH YOU TONIGHT? ARE YOU SAVED?" SHE SAID, "OH, I DON’T KNOW, SIR; I HOPE SO." HE SAID, "WELL, LET ME SHOW YOU THIS VERSE, ’HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE.’ DO YOU BELIEVE ON THE SON?" "OH, I DO, SIR, I DO BELIEVE ON HIM WITH ALL MY HEART." "WELL, THEN HAVE YOU EVERLASTING LIFE?" SHE REPLIED, "I HOPE SO. I HOPE I HAVE IT."
