Rev. # 74~20:11-15=21:1- THE WHITE THRONE-NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH 10-9-10
Today we’ll continue with our thoughts to do with the White Throne Judgment of the lost, and then go into Chapter 21: Lord willing.
Ø Listen as I read our text.
11And 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.**
12And I saw the dead, small and great, **stand before God; and the books were opened:**
We see here that there will be at least 3 books at this Judgment.
BIBLE—WORKS AND DEEDS—BOOK OF LIFE
I pointed out last time that We see here that there will be at least 3 books at this Judgment.
Ø Let me say right here, LISTEN, I’m gon-na tell you something that’s going to bless your heart,-- Man’s number is 6, created on the 6th day, Rev.13:18 666--Romans is the 6th book of the N.T.,-Romans has 6 letters in it--Romans has the word “MAN” in it. -- Romans tells man about a man that caused mankind to become sinners--
Rom.5:12 Wherefore, as by one man** sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:--
Romans also tells MAN that THE MAN the Lord Jesus Christ is mans only hope.
Rom.5:15-19 --- For if through the offence of one many be dead,**(ADAM) much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by ONE MAN, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of ONE the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Listen; if you’ll take the 6th book of the N.T. “Romans”, and turn to the 6th chapter, look down at the 6th verse, and count the 6th word you’ll see that the word is MAN.
And you will find that MAN is the 6th word 6 times here in book 6, --let me give them to you.
2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, ---
2:3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed,
Romans tells man how he became a sinner and that the MAN the Lord Jesus Christ is the only remedy.
I think that it would be best if a person that is still a babe in Christ, or maybe some one that’s not been saved for a very long time, that they should read John’s gospel first and then read Romans, don’t start reading in the law books of the O.T. or you may become confused, the law was for the Jews back then, the law was never given to the Gentiles at any time, if your not a Jew then you’re a Gentile. We’re today in the GRACE dispensation, the LAW dispensation is passed, read John and then Romans, and then Galatians. –gentiles were never under the law.
Psalm 147:19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. (JEWS) 20He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, (LAWS) they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
----------------------------------Lets start with verse 11 again;
11And 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.***
12And 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.
13And 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. at least 3 books will be opened–--BIBLE—WORKS AND DEEDS—BOOK OF LIFE
