Nr. 57: God's court

Nr. 57:
God's court

The Bible speaks of God's court on several occasions, also for the nations. Let us briefly look at these (three) different court actions:

Christ's Court

This I have taken from Toralf Gilbrandt: 1 Corinthians 3.11 to 15, we read:
"For no one can lay a foundation other than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. But if anyone on this foundation is built with gold, silver, precious stones or wood, hay, straw, then the work everyone has done, will be revealed. The day shall declare it, because it is revealed with fire. How it works is that everyone has done, it will fire test. About the structure that one has raised, remains, he shall receive a reward. Burning his work up, he shall lose pay. But he himself shall be saved, yet so as through fire. "

From this we see that the rapture is not only talking about a blessed hope and a wonderful appetizer, the rapture is also closely related to the great reckoning when we will be accountable understand the living God.
Christ's Court is ruling over God's house. It represents a judicial act distinct from the great white throne Judgement will take place after the Millennium. At the White Throne to be wicked people judged and perish, but by that time the faithful have already been home with the Lord in a thousand years.
Christ's Court is a judicial act distinct from ruling over the nations that will take place here on earth before the millennium will be created. Then the king clean out of his kingdom those who cause harm and offense - he will decide who should share in the kingdom of God to be created on earth. This judicial action is therefore people who are still alive on earth, while the ruling by the great white throne depicts the dead standing before God after heaven and earth are passed away.

Another type of sentence
Christ's Court is somewhat different from both of these judgments. Christ's Court is a court only for believers.
Now it might be those who will object: But did not Jesus say that whoever believes in him is not going to be condemned? How can Paul say that we all shall be revealed to Christ's court. Yes, both are true and correct. The believer is not condemned with the world. There is no salvation or damnation to be determined for us understand Christ's court in question to pay or lose their salaries. To take an example:

There is a big difference between the judge who sits in a courtroom and judge crimes and the judge who runs with a whistle on the football field and judges about sports performance.
The Bible tells us that believers will be judged in three different ways: as a salvation increasing sins we were doomed by our repentance, when we acknowledge our sins and was justified through the redemption in Christ Jesus. This judicial action or acquittal rests our salvation. Second, can a believer be judged as children of God or his sons during our walk through life. Paul says: "When we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord that we should not be condemned with the world." God disciplines us to lead us in recognition and that we may share His holiness. Thirdly, we as believers be judged as servants. And it is this conviction which takes place at Christ's tribunal. God is not only our Savior and our Heavenly Father, he is also our Lord. He will require his servants to account for what he has given each one.

This court action is called in the Bible God's court, court of Christ, "the day" that day, our Lord Jesus Christ today, and in John's first letter 4.17 is called the "Judgement Day" - also for the believers there will be a reckoning and the Last Day .
Sample rather than Christ the court will then take place after the rapture. Several things suggest that it will happen quite soon after encouraging, at least, we see that before the marriage of the Lamb will be celebrated, the bride dressed in the spotless white linen is the righteous deeds of the saints - then that is his life's work tested and approved by God. And we find that even before the crowd breaks out on earth, then the 24 elders who sit on thrones before God had given their crowns. It will happen on "that day" says the apostle Paul.
When we presented to the court of Christ, the believer already perfected and transformed. We have reached the end goal of our faith, the soul's eternal salvation. We are there for our glorious resurrection bodies. Although wages have not yet been determined, so is our salvation secured. We will also be fulfilling and sanctified wholly. Therefore, no attempt to justify or excuse himself some mistakes in their own homes. We will even give God straight in everything and see and judge as he does.

This decision understand Christ's court can not take place until all the faithful of the old covenant and the church's time gathered there. The whole church of God must be there. That is the question of a reward to be determined, and the price can not be distributed until all who participate in the course has finished. Therefore, expect the Saints who have died for us to finish our race. It is also about the saints of the old time that they can not be made perfect without us. And the Apostle Paul knew that he had to wait until "that day" before he could receive the crown of righteousness.

The big accounting day
This is the great reckoning for us all.
The one who will judge is the Lord, the righteous judge. He will even come and get us home to himself, and he shall decide the question of the reward to his servants. It is good to know that there comes a day when the final, decisive and righteous words should be said in any case. Then each of us take God accounts for themselves.

It will be judged is the faith life's work. It is in the sense not our sins to be judged, but our "work". Sin is not there as a condemnation of the flat is cleaned away the blood of Jesus, and we have been forgiven for it. We read that it was built on the foundation that was to be tested. It is our service to God to be judged.
Our words and deeds to be tested. It's going to go very carefully for himself, for we read that for every useless word should be taken account - and every cup of cold water given in charity to be rewarded (end of quote).

Judgement on the nations at the valley of Jehoshaphat

Matt. 25. 31 But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on his throne of glory, 32 and all nations shall be gathered before him. He shall separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33 and the sheep to his right and the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, take possession of the kingdom which is prepared for you from the foundation was laid. 35 For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye to me, I was in prison and you visited me. "37 Then the righteous will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and clothed thee? 39 And when saw we thee sick or in prison, and came unto thee? "40 But the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of these my brethren, you did for me."
41 Then shall he say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not: I was naked, and ye clothed me not: I was sick and in prison and you visited me not. "44 Then they will answer, 'Lord, when saw we thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, to help you?" 45 But he shall answer them "Truly, I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of these least, ye did it not to me." 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous to eternal life.

"I will enter trial with them because of Israel, my people and my heritage, because the scattered them among the nations and divided my land" (Joel 3:7).

At the beginning of 1000 year kingdom will all nations be judged in relation to their treatment of Jews and the nation of Israel. Bl. A. by helping Jews, and by defending Israel's right to own land and their own sovereignty. We must remember that it is only Israel that has had the "Palestinians" who own land, no other throughout history. So to go against the facts here is to go against God when he says about this country that it is his own and it belongs to the carnal Israel. When Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Larger many, it's arguably Ante Christian forces that trigger it. He says that he will encounter Palestinian Arabs, but not a penny to Israel. This is and remains Satan's strategy, not support Israel but Arabs!

Ezekiel 38 16. You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud and hide the land, in the last days it shall be, when I let you come upon my land, that people will teach me to know, when their eyes reveal my holiness in thee , Gog!

Nations do not know what they are getting to grips with. It is not just Judah and Israel, they get to the opponents, but the Lord Himself will fight against them and to judge. This ruling over the nations also means that the Gentiles are ended. Now is the time for the Lord to once again take care of his peculiar people. But first then Jerusalem will be a cup of drunkenness to all the nations. They shall besiege Jerusalem and it will be a very crowded for Judah.

But in the midst of this distress will be a cry to the Lord. It is something that constantly runs through the whole history of Israel: "In their affliction they converted to the Lord God of Israel. They searched him, and he was found of them "(2 Chronicles 15:4).

The prophet Zechariah speaks of how this should happen, "Behold, I make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding nations. When Jerusalem is besieged, it should also go out of Judah. It will happen on that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all peoples. All the promises in it, will hurt themselves.
Yes, all nations of the earth are gathered against them. On that day, saith the Lord, I will beat every horse with shyness and its rider with madness. But over the house of Judah will I opplate my eyes, and all peoples horses, I will turn to blindness. Judas tribal chiefs to say in his heart, the inhabitants of Jerusalem have strength through the Lord of hosts, their God!
On the day I will make Judah chiefs like a hearth burning between billets and ildbluss among sheaves. They shall devour all the surrounding peoples, to the right and left. And Jerusalem, people should still stay at his place, in Jerusalem. The Lord shall save the tents of Judah first, lest the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will have a greater glory than Judah.
On that day the Lord will protect Jerusalem. The among them who stumble, will the day be like David. And the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them. On the day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
But the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will pour out grace and prayer, Spirit, and then they look up to me as they have pierced. And they shall mourn for Him as one mourns his only begotten son, and complain bitterly of him as a petitioner of his firstborn "(Zechariah 12:2-10).

At a closer examination of Jehoshaphat battle against Moab and the Ammonites (2 Chron. 20) should find that this violation in a substantial manner similar to the battle of Armageddon. All martial arts used nothing in this battle, the enemy's army destroyed himself by being one turned his sword against the other. "And the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the people of Wins rock (edomiterne) to destroy them and destroy them, and when they had done to the people from Victorious, they helped, the one against the other, to destroy each other" ( 2 Chron. 20: 23). It was a gudsdom, the Lord's battle from above.
We must notice this assembly when in the following out of the battle of Armageddon, and we must be clear eye that the controversy will race around Jerusalem, which in reality is the people's big storm centrum. Moreover, the "battle of the hills" get to race on a continuous stretch from south to north, from Bozrah among Wins rock in the country of Edom to the mountains in the north garland Megiddo. Isaiah pointed this out in chapter 63, when he says:
"Who is this coming from Edom, in red garments from Bosra, this which is so stately in its kledebon, towering in its fullness of power? Mig is, I speak righteousness, mighty to save. - Why is your kledebon then red, and your clothes as its tread where vinpersen?
- Pers Karrer, I have come alone, and the people were not with me, so I took them in my anger and contrition trampled them in my fury, as sprøitet their juices (blood) on my clothes, and all my clothing, I got sullied.

Joel from 3.17 to 21, we have the image of a harvest, but here's this image of reckoning when God makes up evil.
17 Gentiles should wake up and go to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. For there I will sit and judge all nations from all sides. 18 Send out the sickle, because the harvest is ripe! Come and step winepress, for it is full, pressure vessels overflowing - their wickedness is great. 19 Skare the crowd gathering in the valley of decision. For near is the Lord's day in the valley of decision. 20 The sun and moon sortner, and the stars withdraw their shining. 21 The LORD will roar from Zion, he lets his voice from Jerusalem. Heaven and earth will tremble. But the Lord is a refuge for his people and the strength of Israel.

Who will judge? Jesus and we are believers. There will be no representatives of us, who will be judging both here and all other court actions. Even when the angels shall be judged.

1. Cor. 6. 2 Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world? And if the world shall be judged by you, are you not able to judge the small things? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? Then you must be able to judge in matters of this life.

The verdict in front of the white throne

Obvious. 20. 11 I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it. Earth and sky melted away before him and was no longer. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, the book of life. And the dead were judged according to what was written in the books, according to their deeds. 13 The sea gave now its dead, and death and Hades gave up the dead who were there, and all were judged according to their deeds. 14 Then death and hell cast into the lake of fire - and the lake of fire, it is the second death. 15 And if any was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Jude 14 There was about them that Enoch, Adam's descendant in the seventh paragraph, prophesied when he said: "Behold, the Lord comes with His holy angels in their thousands 15 to execute judgments upon all, and require every godless accountable for all the wicked deeds of the has done and for all the defiant words, they have made against him, the wicked sinners. "16 They are rebels who complain of their fate, but live according to their desires. They brag and uses big words and flatter others when they have the advantage of it.
2. Pet. 3. 8 But one thing, my dear, do not forget: For the Lord is one day as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 It is not that the Lord is slow to fulfill his promise, as some believe. No, he is patient with you, he will not know that any should perish but that all should reach repentance. 10 Day of the Lord will come like a thief. Then the heavens pass away with a roar, the elements will be dissolved with fire, and earth and the works that are done on earth shall be burned up.

11 And now everything will fall apart, how holy and godly, you should not live, 12 While you are waiting for the day of God will come, and hasten it. Then the heavens consumed by fire and the elements to burn and melt. 13 But we look forward to what he promised: a new heaven and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
We have embarked on a very large topic but in this article, the main focus be on what happens to all the wicked and unbelievers after death? And especially at the end. Now when people die they come either to paradise or hell, waiting for either salvation or doom. The believers into Paradise and non believers to hell. But until the end, what then?
I have been taught to believe (I have my background in the free friends \ Pentecostal) that people will be tormented forever.
And learn and think a not one is a heresy. But what about learning God's word?
Jesus said it himself.
Matt. 10. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but can not kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
It says right out that the Father may destroy, annihilate and destroy people in the lake of fire or hell. We read from the text because it is so that man can kill and kill the body. But only God can dead \ kill \ tilintegjøre \ destroy them both, mind and body!
We also see Paul says about the same.
Rom. 6. 23 The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When the wages of sin is death means separation then it means an eternal separation from God. And when we begin to compare other scriptures we come to the conclusion that there is no talk of eternal torment literally as an eternal punishment. But the extinction of all those who do not have their names written in the book of life of the Lamb, even Satan and all evil spirits included. What about the eternal torment in Revelation 20.10 that must be the last word as if those who believe that God will torment and destroy the people and all the demons and Satan in the end?
There is no word in Hebrew or Greek that means "forever" (which never ends). After the Jewish way of thinking, of which the Scriptures have their origin, are all seen in ages / n / ne / adj; tidsalderlig. ...- Eph. 2; 7: How Wild He (YHWH) in the coming ages (g: a rubbish aiosin) show His overwhelming grace Wealth of Kindness toward us in Yeshua HaMashiavch .. / 2 Tess. 1, 9: .. their punishment (the ugjenfødte) is a tidsalderlig (aionion) destruction away from Adonay's face and from His Glory and Power.
The Hebrew: olam and the Greek, aion (eon), denotes something that "disappears on the horizon. Some of the people" foreseeable. "There is only YHWH & Yeshua who know the time span's length, for every age - and the time length of several ages after each other, and the He reveals it through his Spirit, when it is easy.
When it comes tidsalderlig torment for devil spirits and ugjenfødte / disobedient) - at the age of all (eoniske) fire, that signifies this is a painful process of destruction (by fire), resulting in complete annihilation / annihilation. Only YHWH knows the duration (time length) of this punishment / extinction process.
This translation blunder hangs sometimes after church needs to ("reinforce the fear" - scare the population to pay the indulgence and support (submit to) the church and church doctrine. - Each is a product of Greek pagan-philosophical thought.
In our time is actually the church Bible translators still too cowardly to translate Olam / Aion, accurate, age / eon / time-span / adjective; tidsalderlig / eonisk / persistent / (long) term. It's the churches and the church that pays the salary of their, and churches are dependent on maintaining the "traditions" to exist, including the u-biblical and false - deliberately!
I have certainly come to the conclusion that the words aion and olam both speak of an infinitely long period of time, which is also translated as forever, so we put in the word. When it comes to word aionos, so this seems to be used in the sense of infinity without end. But it is said that difficult. I see that many (the majority) of the Bible teachers and scripture counsels that have landed on the aionos means eternal and infinite. So we have when the term "ton aionon aion" which means "forever" or "forever and forever." What I mean is that this "destruction" process will be so long that it is natural to compare it with an eternity - because the fire burns all the time, so long as there is nothing to burn.
It is therefore not surprising that it can be difficult to interpret this with the "hell fire". It was a place outside Jerusalem, a waste place called "hell" (Gehenna). On the rubbish dump was burning there is a continuous fire, to burn up the waste. It was also burned corpses of criminals. This place is in the New Testament and over in history, used as an image of the punishment that would come across people who do evil deeds. - There was a lot of evil in life, and the hope of many was that God would hold a fair trial. In a society marked by violence and injustice, such as. Ancient Israel, I think that's not so strange that people elaborate this with hell fire and punishment seem so terribly awful that it is possible to imagine. Penalties will also have a deterrent effect, and intends to get people with a "vicious agenda" to refrain from their actions.
For me it will not be a show about a good God could be united with him to let people be tortured continuously for all eternity, even though these people have been guilty of evil acts. - But we have this with justice. The fact that God will keep a fair verdict? How should this be interpreted? I believe this with conviction that it is "final", it is an ending, not "eternal."

Forever is a long and everlasting 2x correctly translated from Hebrew \ grsk is an age of time. Or a time that only God the Father knows. As Jesus says of his return that it knows only my Father when he comes again.
Jesus is coming back when this era is ending. So it is with the Father's final destruction and tilintelsesgjørelse of all evil and Satan with his demons.
It will take an age \ epoch \ (g: a rubbish aiosin) to perform this work.
We read in Scripture that the night shall cease to stand for evil, be biledelig speech that one day all traces of the evil and the evil deeds, and them being gone.
Obvious. 22. 5 The night will be no more, and they should not be used for the light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will shine upon them. And they will reign forever and ever.
God the Father Himself knows the time and in what way this will happen, but the biblical teaching is not eternal torment forever. But a literal destruction as happened to Sodom and Gomarra says Jude in his letter.
Jude 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities where around, as the same as those engaged in prostitution, and went after strange flesh, are before our eyes as an example, when they suffer an eternal ilds punishment. What happened to Sodom and Gomarra? They had a deadly criminal who destroyed them because of contained life.

1.Mos.b.19. 24 Then the LORD rain brimstone and fire - from the Lord out of heaven - down on Sodom and Gomorrah. 25 And he overthrew those cities and all the plain, and all those living in cities and what grew on the ground.
27 Early in the morning Abraham went to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah and toward all the land of the plain, he saw that the smoke went up from the land like the smoke of a furnace.

It was Sodom and Gomar blotted with an eternal flame. After what the word of God teaches about the eternal fire!
It has all the people waiting who have their names written in the book of life of the Lamb. An eternal annihilation as they got. It was like a furnace.
How will it happen with all the wicked on Judgement Day understands the white throne that does not have his name written in the Book of Life. Everything that came in there melted and became "a" with the bathroom. How it will happen to the wicked on Judgement Day.

Matt.3. 12 he has his kasteskovl in his hand, and he will clean his barn and gather his wheat laden, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.

When it comes to believers, and we do not understand sentence.
But our lives will be assessed and we may lose wages or full wages!
This is the biblical doctrine of the eternal flame.
What I mean is that this "destruction" process will be so long that it is natural to compare it with an eternity - because the fire burns all the time, so long as there is nothing to burn.
And the pain will of God Father's heart something very like have provided a solution for all people. And Jesus will suffer when his sacrifice was for all.
For us men have by far the greatest distress and anguish to join this if we do not get our fleshly family with the sky the way and all the other people that we care about and love!
