Judgement Day Surprise – The Good and Bad Part 1
I think most of us are going to be quite surprised on the day of judgment as we all are in front of Christ, Jesus. What’s coming more to light, again, is that God says what He means and means what He says. But somehow we, man, keeps overlooking or not understanding many verses of the Bible. Or with other verses we are just simply too shocked at the severity of how things are vs. the softened messages we’ve heard over time from preachers who didn’t want to “scare” their congregants.
I found an article that is well put on verses that made quite an impression on me this year:
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:34–39)
May I suggest that you, myself, we all start to look out for people especially those in Christ, and help them, be kind to them. Go out of your way to do so. Think of ways to do so. Be open to do so when you are out and about. Be on the lookout even when you are in the Internet. And many times you won’t even know who is a fellow sheep, brother of Christ.
Also: not only is the end of this age rapidly approaching, If not within a few years, you don’t know when you could die anyways and when you die it’s all over. When you died your report card is finalized. It is much more wise to panic now to know the Word and know what Jesus commands and do the commands then think you’ll do them later, because you won’t. So time is now. For perspective you may want to see this video upon Heaven and Hell which is quite in character with the Bible.
And you will want to get to know the Word, the Bible, very well for great has been the deception over the past many years and greater will be the deception going forward: Get a volume Bible Reading Plan and a Bible Reading System so you don’t get lost, or start going sideways trying to figure everything out after reading a couple pages… (a big reason why most don’t know the Bible)
Look out for more on this topic of Judgement Day Surprise – and how to avoid a bad surprise. You really don’t want a bad surprise for a bad surprise could be a lot more severe, eternally speaking than we may want to believe.
