Be ready and be sure your soul is prepared for judgment
















Daniel 5:1-6

Daniel 5:25-31

 

The writing was on the wall.  The end had come for the Babylonian empire.  Their days had come to an end.  Likewise, Earths days are nearing the end, and we each face our judgment.

 

There are a lot of very unusual ideas about the end of the world floating around out there.  Today, I would like to examine a few passages which speak of the end of the Earth and the Judgment to come.

 

2 Peter 3

 

Verses 1-7

Many truly believe that this world is eternal.   They believe that the earth always was, and always will be.  God tells us differently.  The end will come, and he will destroy this physical world.

 

Verses 8-9

Here, God gives us the reason why He delays.  He wants everyone to wake up and smell the coffee as it were.  He wants all men to repent and turn to Him.  And so He gives us time to accomplish this for Him.    In a way, it is as though He is waiting for us to finish up things down here.  For surely, if we do not teach, then not all will be saved.

 

 

 

Verse 10

Here is the manner of the Earths destruction.  It will:

        Come unexpectedly.  Just as no one expects the thief who robs him, the end will come upon people unaware.

        This world will be destroyed through heat and fire, in keeping with the promise made to Noah.  (Genesis 9:8-17)

 

Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:  "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you--the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you--every living creature on earth.  I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."

 

And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:  I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.  Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

 

So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth."

 

Verses 11-18

And so, as we know God will destroy this world, then how shall we live?  Shouldnt we be prepared and fully ready for this?  Should we not live as God would have us to live, and be ready?

 

Revelation 20:11-15

 

Verses 20:11-15

Here is the judgment of God.  It is described elsewhere in similar ways (Matthew 25:31-46).  Everyone will be judged for their deeds.  As was stated in 2 Peter, should we not all be prepared for this event?  Especially since we know it is coming?

 

Revelation 21:1-8

 

Verses 1-4

The old, or current, world has passed away.    God will be among His people, and they will be with God.  They will be with God.  See how great it will be for them?  No tears, death, or sorrow.  All the things that make this life difficult and painful will cease to exist. 

 

Verses 5-8

God will save those who truly wish to be saved.  Those who live their lives for Him and obey Him He has promised to save.  Those who do not serve Him, who serve themselves, will not be saved, but eternally condemned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Revelation 21:22-22:5, 12-21

 

Verses 22-5

Once again this amazing thing is said.  God is there.  The saved will be with God.  Those who are not will not be with Him. 

        God is the light there

        The gates shall never be shut There is nothing to fear there, for who can defeat God?

        Only the clean and pure shall enter.

        Note the river of water of life

 

Verses 12-21

Here is stated again the obvious.  God is returning soon.  We do not know the date or time, but He is coming, and coming quickly.  We must be diligent to show ourselves to be of the group in verse 14, those who do His commandments.  For the other option is verse 15 those who cannot enter heaven.  God invites you to come, to be one of His children.

 

 

The writing is on the wall.  As the days of Babylon were numbered, so are the days of earth.  The end is neigh.
