Summary: A simple message showing how God is our Judge, Lawgiver, King, and Saviour
The Lord is…
First notice the Word LORD….Jehovah.
We are taking about the Creator
We are talking bout the Sustainer
I. The Lord is our Judge.
A.There is one thing you can count on…one day you will stand before the Judge to give an account for your life.
… for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of
Christ. (Romans 14:10)
B. There are two judgments in Scripture.
1. The Great White Throne Judgment.
-Only the lost will be there,
-There is only one verdict – guilty
-There is only one sentence – death.
2. The “Bema” seat of Christ.
-Only believers will be at the Bema seat.
-Romans 14:12 So then every one of us shall give
account of himself to God.
-At this judgment, believers will receive reward and
crowns for what they did here on earth.
C.Either way, God is our judge, the judgment where you appear will depend on what you do with Christ today.
D. God is the judge.
Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
II. God is our lawgiver.
A.This is not a reference to the Old Testament Law.
B. But to the absolutes of right and wrong.
C. It is God who determines what is right and what is
-Not Government. There are some things that are
legal, but not right. (abortion)
-Not individuals deciding for themselves.
Judges 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the
ways of death.
-God teaches us right from wrong in His Word.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
III. The Lord is our King.

-I serve a King that reigns supreme.
-A king who is over all kings that ever ruled on this planet.
-King of kings…Lord of Lords.
IV. Our Lord will save us.
