THE LAST JUDGMENT

Acts 17: 31, Revelation 20: 11

From the first time you ever sinned, your placed yourself in a system that will lead to judgment and punishment. All of us know down deep in our hearts that there is a God. We know that God is in control. We know that sooner or later there is going to be a day of judgment. It is written on the pages of the Bible, it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment. Also it is written on the pages of our heart. God has appointed a day in which He will judge a world.

Now the Bible gives us a depiction of this in the book of Revelation. When is this day of judgment? It’s known to us as the great white throne judgment. It will occur at the conclusion of the thousand years, the millennium. Satan, at this time will have already been judged and cast into the lake of fire. Then there is going to be this great white throne judgment.

Three things I want us to see in this message. The setting, the summons, and the sentence. So, turn to Revelation 20 and verse 11 gives us THE SETTING. It is described as a great white throne. The word great, because it is God’s throne. The word white, because it represents the holiness and the righteousness of God. A throne, because it indicates God is in control. God rules and reigns in the universe.

Him that sat upon the throne will be recognized immediately because of the nail prints in His hands and feet. All judgment is given the Lord Jesus Christ. Today the question is what will you do with Jesus? In that day the question will be, what will Jesus do with you?

So, this is the setting. Jesus is on the throne to judge.

Now, in verses 12 and 13, we have THE SUMMONS. When the great white throne judgment occurs, there will be a summons and all the unsaved dead will be summoned to the great white throne. They will come from their watery graves. Out from all the Cemetery’s the memorial gardens the unsaved will be gathered.

Notice it says that death and hell deliver up the dead. When an unsaved person dies their bodies go to death. Their souls go to hell. There will be a resurrection of the lost. At the resurrection of the lost, the soul, which has been in Hades sense the heart stopped will be united with the body. They will be summoned to the judgment. Hades is hell No. 1. The lake of fire is hell No. 2. Hades is like the county jail. The lake of fire is like the federal pen.

Notice verse No. 12 tells us none are missed. The dead small and great stand before God. Those who put their trash in the magazine racks. Those businessmen who cheat their customers out of money. The thieves. The adulterous. All of the little sinners we would call them. All of these will be summoned to the great white throne judgment.

He also says the great are going to be there. The Hitler’s, the Mussolini’s and the Sadams. The rock stars who damned the souls of young people. The entertainers, who for money polluted the morals of the universe will be there. They won’t be bragging and boasting that day about freedom of speech. It is time for their fair trial.
