Matt. 25:31-46. THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY 4-16-11
Today I want to talk for a few minutes to do with what is involved with “THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY” that we’ll read about in our text.
In order for us to understand this “Throne of His glory judgment” we must realize that the 7 year Tribulation is now over, that Jesus has defeated His enemies at Armageddon, so what we call the battle of Armageddon is passed, and let me say that this will be the most one sided battle that there’s every been, also we don’t read any where in the Bible of it being called “the battle of Armageddon” it’ll really amount to a massacre as Jesus destroys His enemies with the Sword of His mouth, He’ll simple speak and their dead.
Revelation 19:11-16 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
And let me say it’s not His Blood that’s splattered all over His garments.
14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses clothed in fine linen, white and clean. *(all the redeemed saints of heaven, O.T.-N.T.-Tribulation saints and possible His angels.)
15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, (His Word) that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Ø Before we read our text from Matt.25:31-46 I believe it’s necessary to read some Scripture
leading up to the time that He’s seated on His Throne of glory.
When He is seated on the “Throne of His glory” the 7 year tribulation is over, Armageddon is over, and now He is going to judge the individuals from all nations that made it through the horrible Tribulation as to how they treated His Jewish brethren, the 144000 Jewish missionaries that went all over the world during the 7 year tribulation preaching THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, not the gospel of GRACE as we do today.
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Ø These Tribulation missionaries will be all Jewish males.
Revelation 14:1+4&5 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads--- 4-5 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. 5And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
Now to Rev.7: and we’ll understand what “redeemed from among men” means.
Ø Listen as I read the entire 7th chapter of Revelation.
1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, (N-S-E-W) holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.—this let’s out the cult of today--
5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.—12 tribes x 12,000 from each tribe = 144000.
