26 The Hour of God’s Judgement

By John Thiel,  Audio: The Hour of God’s Judgement 

This study goes into the detail of what is involved in the hour of God’s judgement. In our previous studies we considered the first angels message because in it the angel preached the everlasting gospel.

Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,   7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; 

We have learnt the meaning of what it means to give God the glory.  I want to enlarge the point of how to give God the glory so we can launch out into the understanding of the hour of his judgement is come.

How to Give God the Glory

Notice where God’s glory comes in.

Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.   2 When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.   3 For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt [for] thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.   4 Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.   5 Fear not: for I [am] with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;   6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;  7 [Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. 

God has created us for his glory.  God has redeemed us as Jesus was the ransom.  All the work of the everlasting gospel has been to bring about and create a condition.

Isaiah 43:10 Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.  11 I, [even] I, [am] the LORD; and beside me [there is] no saviour.   12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have showed, when [there was] no strange [God] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I [am] God. 

Can you see how this relates to the first angels message?  Fear God and give glory to him, you are my witnesses, I have created you for my glory.  There was someone who commenced this program and it is the one who the gospel speaks of. Jesus speaks to the Father in heaven while he was on earth.

John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 

Jesus has been sent to this earth and he gives God the glory.  How did he do it?  By coming to this earth and developing an experience from babyhood to adulthood.

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.   9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.   10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 

John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;   21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.   22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 

Here is the work of Jesus to develop the glory of God in him and then in his work for his disciples he prays for them so that he can be in them and the glory which he developed may be also revealed in them.  God’s glory is His character revealed and developed in Jesus and then through him in all his disciples. The work of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ is that we will develop into the character that Jesus  himself developed and it is from glory to glory.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord. 

Beholding As In A Mirror

By beholding and learning of Jesus we are changed from glory to glory.  By the time we come to the period of the fist angel’s message, he reiterates the everlasting gospel which is the creation of God through Jesus Christ.  I have created and formed thee for my glory that you will be my witnesses.  We come to the time of the first angels message and he reiterates the everlasting gospel and says now is the hour of Gods judgement, give him the glory. This is the period in which the 144,000 were to be revealed.  Revelation 14:1 is part of these three angels messages that the identifies the 144,000 under the three angels messages.

Revelation 14:1 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. 

The Fathers name, God’s character is in them.

Revelation 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. 

The call of the three angel’s messages is to be one of them.  Do your part, give God the glory is the message because the hour of his judgement is come.

The Hour of His Judgement

It is often read along the track that we are being judged by God and that’s why it’s called his judgement.  But according to our study we will see that this is not what the bible talks about in this judgment. It’s talking about him being judged, the hour of his judgement is come.  God said I have created you for my glory and I have formed you.  Lucifer in heaven turned against and defied God that the angels and man cannot live in harmony with God’s law.

The whole universe was thrown into a quandary about Gods justice.  Through those who absorb the truth as contained in the everlasting gospel, Lucifer is to be corrected. God leaves himself open to be judged.  If we take hold of the gospel as preached in these series of studies under the first angel, what takes place?  God said he has formed thee.  Under the ministration of Jesus coming to this earth and presenting himself as he spoke in John 17 to glorify God in his life, he announces that the people who receive him he gives them power to become the Sons of God.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:   13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

These are important words when it comes to the hour of Gods judgement that God is going to be judged.  Who are the people that are called upon to give God the glory?  He said he prayed for them who have received Jesus and those who have believed in my name. Those who have received me were born not of blood or of the will of flesh or man but of God, they were the ones given power to become the sons of God.  Who?  Those who received him.  The process through which they were being made the sons of God from birth, the power that will produce in them the sons and glory of God we see the process in Romans 8.

Predestination

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.   29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? 

Did you notice that it says that those people who receive Jesus Christ will receive power to become the sons of God?  God foreknew who would receive him.  For whom he foreknew.  God has a vision as to knowing who is going to do something in the future before it ever happens.  God knows ahead of time who it is who is going to believe in his son Jesus Christ and just as Jesus was the first born among many brethren, Jesus glorified God and was brought through to the end as glorifying Gods character and all those whom he foreknew he predestined.  He said you are going to be of the image of my son.  I have formed him and I am forming you. I know you are going to become like him.  The process of justification and sanctification to final glorification under the everlasting gospel, will produce a glorification to give God the glory.  Whom he called he justified and glorified.  This is the process of Gods creativity, I have formed and developed it.  What is our part?  What was it that could make him do this with us?  The people who received him cooperated with him.

2 Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience Godliness;  7 And to Godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 

This is for the person who receives Jesus and the promise. He has now gained faith and he is to add diligently the whole process of God’s work in him.

2 Peter 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

God is forming his children. I have formed thee, you are my witnesses.  Here is the process.  He is calling the people who respond to him, he predestines.  He has them in his foreknowledge to make them children of his glory.  That is because they will be diligent and he knows they will be.  He knows in his foreknowledge this is going to happen because they are doing this work.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 

As we diligently do this, God is working in you.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.   14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; 

Fear God and give glory to him.  You are going to shine.  Who are they?  The people who work out their salvation with fear and trembling while God works in them to will and to do.  I have created and formed you.  God is able to form and create those whom he predestines by his foreknowledge as the gospel of Jesus Christ comes to them.  It is the people who endure the process right through to the end and he knows who they are in his foreknowledge.

Who Will Be Saved At The End?

Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 

As we are studying the first angels and the 144,000, it is these people, the 144,000, the people living under the three angels messages will endure unto the end.  God has a foreknowledge of that, he knows.  He has predestined them under this message of the first angel’s message.  In his foreknowledge he knows those who will endure the process.

Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. 

He who will endure unto the end.  We will be joint heirs with Christ to give God the glory as he gave God the glory if we suffer with him.  To go through the process together with Jesus, he was the first born and if we will endure this process together with Jesus then we will be truly heirs of God together with Christ.  What does that mean?  This will be the wonderful predestined situation in the lives of these people.

John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 

We shall be like him in character.  We are going through the process of child training in the family of God.  We are his sons. When he comes we are going to be fully trained under the work of justification, sanctification and glorification.  This work means that we will be like him when he comes. The workmanship of God, the method shows that work.  Here is this wonderful creative power of God that we are to show before the world.

Ephesians 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 

Christ is the firstborn and those who received Christ, are the people who although they were dead in sins, he hath quickened and made alive together with Christ.

Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 

To show when he is judged what sort of a being he really is as Lucifer,  the evil angels and the whole universe is watching.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 

When and how did he create us?  In Christ Jesus.  Whom he called, he also predestined in this everlasting gospel message. This workmanship that he is engaging in is also discussed in Romans.

Romans 9:10 And not only [this]; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, [even] by our father Isaac;  11 (For [the children] being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 

Why did God say that before they were even born?  By his foreknowledge he knew what each one would do.

Romans 9:14 What shall we say then? [Is there] unrighteousness with God? God forbid.  15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then [it is] not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might show my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will [have mercy], and whom he will he hardeneth. 19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed [it], Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 [What] if God, willing to show [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured  with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, 24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? 

He has created and formed, he is the potter, we are the clay.  He has formed us before we were born so what chance have I got? This is what it sounds like.  Whom he foreknew them he also predestined.  He knew what pharaoh would do and those who receive Jesus Christ he has called and they listened and he knew it and now he is working with those people he foreknew.  In this last hour message as consequence of this gospel, there are people being called upon to give glory to God.  Who are they?  All you who receive Jesus.  Be diligent, give God the glory.  Make your calling and election sure.  Be diligent, God has called you.  He knows what you are made of and if you will be diligent I’m going to wait for you. We are going to pass through the same processes that Jesus passed through so the hour of God’s judgment will verify his character in us. That is what he wants.

God Is Under Scrutiny

You can see the scrutinising mind. What is God doing here? Its not fair, some are pharaohs, and Judas’ and its all God creating them so what chance have we got?  Is he just?  The universe must see God’s character in the experience of the human race carrying out the character of God.

Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?  4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 

God is the true God who judges and does everything correctly and he will be justified in his sayings and he will overcome when he is being judged.  God is going to be judged.

Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 

The whole world is guilty before God.

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 

Propitiation is a gift to obtain favour of.

Romans  3:26 To declare, [I say], at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. 

God can be just and still justify sinners through what?  God has set forth Jesus Christ and those who have acknowledged and responded to Jesus have the very sacrifice of Jesus applicable to them. Therefore God can be just and the justifier of him that calls upon God.  These are the people that he predestines. He can be just and justify these people and create them like Jesus.  He creates people.  He created pharaoh and he creates those who are Christs.  He is the potter, who are you to argue with God?  God as he is put under scrutiny is the creator of the righteous and the wicked and he will be justified.  All are sinners but some he will justify and some he won’t.

He is the creator of that. How did he do it?  By putting forth Jesus Christ.  Those who rejected him, he created them as wicked and those who received he created as righteous.  How did he do it?  Through placing Jesus as the propitiation for the people to make a decision.  Those he foreknew, those he predestined.  He knew the people who rejected and received him so he could predestinate. In the judgement hour this scrutiny will be satisfied.  The believers living under the first angel’s message in the time when the 144,000 are called to rally and give God the glory. This work of God creating a people for his glory in the last days can stand there as he is being judged.

Romans and Psalms

Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 

Where did that scripture come from?  What was involved in this statement that God would be judged and would be able to pass the judgement?  That scrutiny?  If you know Psalms 51 it is the prayer of king David after his terrible sin.

Psalm 51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest. 

When God judges His people, he Himself is being judged. What does God do?  Can he be just to forgive such a terrible sin that king David did?  King David knew exactly what he was doing. Can God be a just God and forgive a person who has sinned wilfully?  See the scrutiny.  How could God forgive king David and not forgive king Saul? Look at the prayer.  What does king David acknowledge?  I have sinned against you God, I am a terrible sinner and I cry for help.  If you read all through Psalms he has a knowledge of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

He understands his terrible sin and what happened to Jesus on his behalf.  As he cries out, I want you to be justified in forgiven me God. I have caused the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  I have caused his terrible sufferings. He knows the nature of his terrible sin and calls to God for mercy and he says, If you justify me, you are going to be just as I’m depending on your great mercy. David was a believer in Jesus Christ. King Saul failed miserably but didn’t open his heart to the gospel of Jesus Christ when he was tested.

Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true,  5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? [Is] God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)  6 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? 

What is apostle Paul talking about?  God is going to judge the world and how is he going to judge the world? Here are the people that believe and here are those that don’t.  What is Gods judgement going to be by which he is personally being judged?  He is letting some people free and some people not.  Some people believe and some don’t.

Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. 

How are the people going to be judged?  By Jesus Christ. God is going to judge them by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. The scrutiny will be the effect of Gods grace on the changed lives of the believers.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 

God works through Jesus Christ and the people who will take hold of Jesus no matter how sinful they are or how much they have done in their life which is sometimes worse than others, by the fact they have taken hold of the workmanship of God in Christ Jesus, that is what they are going to be judged by. God has worked in them a change.  The scrutiny is what he is going to judge the people by and that kind of judgement of the first angel’s message is expressed in Daniel.

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire.   10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. 

Here is a judgement. What is in the judgement?  Books were opened.

Daniel 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. 

The hour of God’s judgment is that which commenced in 1844 and there the record of sinners like David is being totally cleansed by what?  By Jesus, his sacrifice and their belief and reception of that sacrifice.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad. 

There are the books and the scrutiny and judgment of God in the books is upon the people who have depended upon God and whether they have come through enduring unto the end in Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 5:24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some [men] they follow after. 

Here are some men who sins are opened beforehand in the time of the hour of Gods judgment in the time when Gods people are asked, give God the glory, the hour of his judgement is come.

1 Peter 4:17 For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God? 

The judgement of the first angel is there as the books are opened and it starts with those who are the children of God as they have believed and accepted the gospel. What chance do those who have rejected the gospel?  No chance at all.  It starts with the house of God. What is involved in the judgement?  As it proceeds, give God the glory. What is happening while we are being judged under the first angel’s message?  When God judges he judges in a different way than we think.

Jude 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

What is involved in the judgement?  To convince them. When God judges, he convinces people.  That is how the judgement takes place.  Its not only that he condemns them, he convinces to help them wake up to their reality.

The books of heaven record the sins that would have been committed had there been opportunity. God will bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing. By His law He measures the character of every man. As the artist transfers to the canvas the features of the face, so the features of each individual character are transferred to the books of heaven. God has a perfect photograph of every man’s character, and this photograph He compares with His law. He reveals to man the defects that mar his life, and calls upon him to repent and turn from sin.  5BC 1085

That is the judgement that begins at Gods house. In the gospel he is working to change people’s character and as he is working by justification and sanctification, he shows and convinces them of their sins. As he shows and convinces, there is an opportunity for them to repent. Their judgement happens beforehand and the others when convinced after, it’s too late.  The people who take hold of the gospel have an opportunity to get rid of it as they are convinced of their sins. The others don’t. When God is judged during this period of time from 1844 onwards, he can stand before Lucifer and say, it’s all he has to do and Lucifer has to shrivel into silence as these people have demonstrated they are willing to release their ungodliness. The others are not and that is what Jesus has died for.  If we don’t’ like to have our sins revealed at this time, there is no hope for us. We will have to wait to the end and have them revealed to us if we like it or not.

Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh [them] shall have mercy. 

If the Lord reveals to us the sins that mar our life we can say its too uncomfortable, I don’t want to know because he is convincing us. If we don’t want that, he will say ok, but you won’t prosper. Forsake them, ask for forgiveness, let me cleanse your sanctuary and clear your name.  In the time in which we are living we need to repent so that when we come to the end when probation has closed and the judgement has finished, we are giving God the glory.

Had not Jacob previously repented of his sin in obtaining the birthright by fraud, God could not have heard his prayer and mercifully preserved his life. So in the time of trouble, if the people of God had unconfessed sins to appear before them while tortured with fear and anguish, they would be overwhelmed; {PP 202.2}

When everything is going against you and falling apart around you in the plagues, if there is unforgiven sin that comes up in your mind, it will overwhelm us.

…despair would cut off their faith, and they could not have confidence to plead with God for deliverance. But while they have a deep sense of their unworthiness, they will have no concealed wrongs to reveal. Their sins will have been blotted out by the atoning blood of Christ, and they cannot bring them to remembrance. {PP 202.2}

Here is the issue that when sin has been brought to your remembrance, we are to release it by believing and trusting in the application of Jesus sacrifice. Those that will not go through that process who do not want to give God the glory will be overwhelmed.

Those who had accepted the light concerning the mediation of Christ and the perpetuity of the law of God found that these were the truths presented in Revelation 14. The messages of this chapter constitute a threefold warning (see Appendix) which is to prepare the inhabitants of the earth for the Lord’s second coming. The announcement, “The hour of His judgment is come,” points to the closing work of Christ’s ministration for the salvation of men. It heralds a truth which must be proclaimed until the Saviour’s intercession shall cease and He shall return to the earth to take His people to Himself. The work of judgment which began in 1844 must continue until the cases of all are decided, both of the living and the dead; hence it will extend to the close of human probation. That men may be prepared to stand in the judgment, the message commands them to “fear God, and give glory to Him,” “and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” The result of an acceptance of these messages is given in the word: “Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” In order to be prepared for the judgment, it is necessary that men should keep the law of God. That law will be the standard of character in the judgment. The apostle Paul declares: “As many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law, . . . in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ.” And he says that “the doers of the law shall be justified.” Romans 2:12-16. Faith is essential in order to the keeping of the law of God; for “without faith it is impossible to please Him.” And “whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” Hebrews 11:6; Romans 14:23. {GC 435.2}

This is the summary of this amazing work that by faith and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ we can stand justified before God. By passing through the apprenticeship with Christ we can succeed in standing before God and when he is scrutinised by the way he judges us, the judgemental and condemnatory attitude of Lucifer has no power because these people have permitted the life and sacrifice of Jesus to take them up to the apprenticeship of giving God the glory.  May these subjects be clarified in the mind so there can be absolute clarity of understanding the hour of Gods judgment under the first angel’s message.

Amen.

  1. Anyone who believe that God will judge the world based on HIS ten commandment will never say no one can keep the law of God. unless such a person wants to be on the same ship as satan because it was satan who first made that claim. Revelation 22:14..blessed are they that do His commandment that they may eat from the tree of life and may enter through the gate into the city. If you love me keep my commandment Jesus said…he who says i love him and yet refuses to keep his commandments is a lie. Jesus said be ye perfect as your father in heaven is perfect. Michael333 tell me, how do you become perfect except by keeping the law of God? Did Jesus keepthem when he was on earth?

  2. The judgment of God is mercy. Anything preached outside this is chaff and will be cast into the fire. Any doctrine that has to do with something you perform, is the cartoon delusion wicked men fell for, all throughout history. Righteousness as filthy rags cannot keep the law much less love their enemy.

    • It’s simple; give life with the Word not death. Blessed is he who comes to John 13:35 and John 13:5. It doesn’t surprise me you would equate love with bitterness.

  4. Daniel 12: The Harvest is Come and the 1335 Revealed

    • So tell me, what historical event happened in 1843 or 1844 to signify us being blessed? How do you equate confusion with blessing? So the bitter reality of being wrong (Revelation 10) was a blessing?They had to scramble to apply something to a false interpretation of prophecy, and Revelation 10 predicted that event. The significant event prophesied by John was that false prophecy of 1844. “Thou must prophesy again..” Because it was wrong.

      Blessed is he who comes to the 13 5 and 30 has nothing to do with disappointment. They molded something that wasn’t there, and became part of Babylon. You must do this, and not eat that, totally contrary to [everything] Jesus said, utterly and totally. “Look at us, we keep the laws.” But you lack one thing, sell everything you have, give to the poor, and follow Him. You’re keeping the letter, which kills, and amounts to a heaping pile of death at the same time, killing others with it. How does this equate to “Love your enemy?”

      Romans 2:29
      But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

      Circumcision includes everything you would attempt to do outwardly for show, because if you were doing it in righteousness you would tell no one, but simply do it. Instead it’s turned into a weapon that kills. “He who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword.” A perfect mirror of Israel and the papacy, only much more subtle. The serpent was subtle…

      Romans 7:6
      But now we are delivered from the law, that being [dead] wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

      (Serve who? Our enemy!) But we’ve been taught to kill our enemy with the letter of the law, thinking we do God service. Do you think you have to draw literal blood to be a murderer? Fear him who can kill both body and

      2 Corinthians 3:6
      Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

      Does your message exclude and kill or include and give life? Is the following warning about God or people who kill with the word?

      Matthew 10:28 (King James Version)

      28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

      No one is telling you not to keep the law as you would be tempted to accuse us. We are saying don’t kill with it.

  5. Excellent post! Answer me this: Was what Jesus did on the cross weaker than what Adam did in the beginning? We are all one in Adam, the very reason we all die though we had nothing to do with what Adam did at the beginning.

    1 Corinthians 15:22
    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    The best wine was saved for last. Remember, it clearly says in Rev. 10 that the [mystery] of God would not be finished until the 7th trumpet sounds. We all know the word mystery means something is hidden until the end. There will be surprises.

    Anything preached outside Daniel 12:12 is chaff and will be burned up. My latest video that reveals What Daniel 12:12 comes to:
