JUDGMENT #5- THE JUDGMENT OF THE NATIONS- 8-23-08 MATT. 25:31-46

Today we’ll continue with the study of the 7 judgments that we find in the Bible, let me say that there were many judgments, especially in the book of "JUDGES", but we’re thinking primarily on 7.

Today we’ll be talking about judgment # 5, and that is the "judgment of the nations". Let me say right here that this is not a judgment of selected nations as some might have the misconception, but this is a judgment of ’individual people from all nations" as how they receive and treat the "True Jehovah Witnesses" that’s to say, the 144000 Jewish Missionaries that we’ll read about in the 7th chapter of the Revelation.

Before we begin let me name the 7 Judgments again.

#1-{the judgment of sin,} this took place on the cross of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

#2- {self-judgment of our daily sins} after we were saved.

1 Corinthians 11:31-32 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

The other 5 judgments are after the rapture of the Church.

#3- {the judgment seat of Christ}, this is where all that are saved will be judged for our stewardship, our works after we were saved and thus rewarded accordingly.

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.

And #4-{-the judgment of Israel, Jacobs Trouble, Jer. 30:7, “name-Gen.32:28--35:10” and this has to do with the Tribulation period. The Tribulation is “Jacobs trouble”. But it will affect all the earth.

Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it--

That is the 1/3 that is not destroyed.

-#5-{the judgment of the nations}, this takes place after Christ returns and has defeated His enemies at Armageddon, at the end of the 7 year Tribulation, “Rev.19:” but just prier of Him setting up His Kingdom, the 1000 year reign of Christ. MATT. 25:31-46

#6-the judgment of the fallen angels}- 1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels?

And #7 is of coarse, {the White Throne judgment}, this is when all the lost souls are brought out of hell and judged according to their wickedness, and according to the degree of their wickedness be tormented in the lake of fire, there are not any saved people judged at this judgment, these are all lost.

Revelation 20:11 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.

We’ll try and talk more about these as we get to them.

Listen as I read today’s text found in Matt. 25:31-46. Judgment #5

As we read this passage we’ll see that there are 3 different gropes of people here, there is the "sheep, the goats and the brethren" the sheep are the saved individuals from among the various nations, the goats are individuals from the various nations that did not receive and believe the message of the 144000 Jewish Missionaries, their not saved, they did not aid these distressed Jews, their called "goats", and then the "brethren" are the Jewish Missionaries, the Lord Jesus refers to them as His brethren.
