Summary: How terrible will be the fate of those that reject Jesus Christ as their Saviour, for He that would be their Saviour will be their Judge.
THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT
Some years ago a very well known Evangelist J. Wilbur Chapman saw many people get saved through his
Ministry. He wanted to know at what age most people came to Jesus so he had a survey. He found that most
people get saved between 12 and 16. After a person reaches 25, 1 in 1,000 after 35, 1 in 50,000, after 45 –1 in 200,000, 55 – 1 in 300,000- 75 close to 1 in 1,000,000. It really don’t matter how old you are after you reach the age of accountability. The fact is everyone will face eternity, either with or without Christ. The Great White Throne will be for and only for the lost, unsaved Christ rejecters. HEBREWS 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
1. THE DECIVING DEVIL CAST OUT- V10 The one who all eternity has been at war with has come to the final appearance before God. I can just see him a defiant as ever screaming I almost had you I watched You die on that cross. Then the Devil will be picked up like a little kitten and be thrown in the Lake of Fire.
2. THE JUST JUDGE ON THE THRONE – V11 JOHN 5:22 The Father judgest no man but hath given all judgment to the Son. Jesus will be that Judge. Everyone that has rejected Him will have to face Him as their Judge. Every self-righteous, murdering, whoremonger, Satan, creation, worldly, fleshly, lying religious person will come face to face with the One they rejected as their Saviour. Then all of heaven and earth will flee away.II Peter 3:10 The heavens and the earth shall melt away with fervent heat, and the works that are in them. Right before the eyes of all that loved that world, the world will be burnt and this old earth that they loved so much will fall right from out under them. Nothing to stand on at all. The job, house, fame, fortune, sin will be burned up. You will then stand naked before God. Hung out before Him, He hung naked before the world for you on the cross, now you will hang naked before all of heaven. Hebrews 4:13 All things are naked before His eyes.
3. THE TERRIBLE TERROR BEFORE THE THRONE–v12 The Dead Small and great. Remember before Jesus The sweet little cookie baking mom, beside the street walking harlot, The working for the family Dad, beside the dope headed junkie, The biscuit making grandma, beside Madelyn Murray O’Hare. The Satan Worshiper beside the Church member, The vile cussing, fussing, lying drunkard beside the self-righteous deacon, Sunday school teacher . All these have one thing in common, all are in the same boat They all have rejected Christ as Saviour.
4. THE BANISHING BOOK AT THE THRONE–V12 The Book of Life. The book of records that has all your deeds in it good or bad. Right now if Jesus ask, Is your name written down in the Lamb’s book of Life? What would your answer be? Church member,baptized,helped someone,didn’t cuss,didn’t drink, IS YOUR NAME IN HIS BOOK? To be in the Lamb’s book you must be born again!
5. THE DEPARTING DEAD –v13-15 All at this judgment will exit at the same door. Hear the same words. Matt 7:23 Depart from Me, ye that work iniquity I never knew you!!!!!!5 times in Rev. lake of fire, 19:20-20:10,14,15- 21:8 Then real agony sets in. WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE TO BE LOST FOR ETERNITY!!!!!!!!!!!
6. THE MISERABLE MESS- Luke 16 Rich man in torments, 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.NO REST!!!! THE UNSAVED WILL BE IN TORMENTS FOREVER!!
7. THE HORRIBLE HOWLS- Matt. 22:13 Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. The darkness is what these people loved so that is what they will get for all eternity, They Loved Darkness Because Their Deeds Were Evil JOHN 3:19 WHY ARE THEY WEEPING AND GNASHING TEETH? Mark 9:44,46,48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.We know about the fire of the Lake of Fire but what about these WORMS 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.1ST worm Hebrew Rimmaw-breeding place of the maggots,2nd worm Hebrew Tolath, Crimson maggot, you will know you have been dumped in Hinnon the garbage dump of eternity, Dead but alive, alive but dead.
