Who is The Judge on Judgment Day?

In prior postings I have communicated how a life threatening illness sent me to the emergency room where the doctors did not expect me to live through the night. That night I left my body and entered the spiritual realm. I was taken to the Lake of Fire which is also called the second death. I was taken to Hell and felt the incredible hatred of Satan. Then I was taken the Judgment Seat of Christ and asked, “Why should you live?”

I believe that it is important to examine these events in the context of the Bible. By looking at these experiences from a biblical perspective we will learn that these events are a spiritual reality. They are not simply a bad dream as some may perceive them to be. As we proceed, I will reflect on my experience and validate and enhance it with scripture. In doing this I believe that the scriptures will bring to light fundamental messages that God has communicated to His people over the course of thousands of years.

In a previous postings (Judgment-Day, Reliving-my-sins-before-the-Judgment-Seat-of-Christ, and Gods-Question-on-Judgment-Day), I stood in a broad and peaceful place before the judge of the universe. However, I could not see anything because of the cloud like covering in this place.

The Judgment Seat of Christ

Since I was returned to the physical earth to continue my life, I was not judged and therefore did not suffer the second death. So the question becomes; to whom do I owe my salvation? Who sits on the throne of judgment?

And crying out with a loud voice, saying, Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb! (Revelation 7:10).

I was not judged deserving of the second death despite the fact that my garments were soiled with the visible stains of my sins. So the question has to be; who has the power to forgive sin?

But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins; He said to the paralytic, I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house (Mark 2:10 – 11).

Jesus heals the man at the pools.

I learned that there was only truth in the place where I was asked, “Why should you live?” But, who is it that judges the living and the dead?

I charge you, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom (2 Timothy 4:1).

The answer is that Jesus the Christ of Nazareth is our Lord and Savior. I had made poor choices in my life but Jesus covered me with His blood and kept me from the fate I deserved, the second death.

Jesus Sheds His Blood on the Cross

This story provides insight into the meaning of our lives because it accurately describes the consequences of poor choices. I had made the poor choice of disbelieving in the existence of the devil and God revealed the truth to me. The truth is that the devil, hell, the lake of fire and brimstone, the judgment by Christ and the second death are the consequences of our poor choices. God, Jesus, heaven and life everlasting are the consequences of our good choices.

Repentance Brings Salvation – Even on Judgment Day

In my previous postings I have communicated to you about my severe trauma that landed me in the intensive care unit, dying. I told you about leaving my body and traveling in spirit, through space and time and entered into the Lake of Fire, the place of the second death. I told you how I swam in all of the horror there along with all the other lost soles. I communicated how I was transported to Hell and placed before Satin so that I could experience his extreme hatred of me. I conveyed how I was placed before the Judgment seat of Christ, where I relived my sins. In the past two postings I tell of God’s question for me on the Judgment Seat; “Why should you live?” In this posting I will tell you of my repentance and my bargaining with God on the Judgment Seat. So, with that said, we pick up where we left off.

The Judgment Seat of Christ

I was really desperate now as I knew the focus was back on me. I had to come up with something that would answer God’s question. At first, I blamed my problems on others and waited for a response. Silence was my answer.

Then, I realized that I could not blame others for my poor choices. So I told God that I would change. I pleaded with God, I made a case that if God would provide some things that were missing in my life, that it would make a difference. That was the last thing I remember about being in the gray place.

I awoke the next morning in the intensive care unit where I had been the night before.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. (Psalm 33:18 – 19)

I had lived through the night by the mercy of God.

For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. (James 2:13)

Yes, someone had been watching out for me again. Someone had saved me from the greatest tragedy of all. You would think that this time there would be no mistaking that it was God, but at the time I was still blind. I saw all of this as a terrifying dream, one that I did not care to dwell upon, and simply moved on.

But as you will fine in our future postings the devil was not done yet. He had not given up on defeating me and ending my purpose forever. He would attack me over and over again with physical problem and he would make my life miserable until I wised up and turned my life back over to God.

Opening the Books on Judgment Day

In my previous postings I have communicated to you about my severe trauma that landed me in the intensive care unit, dying. There, I left my body and traveled through space and time and entered into the Lake of Fire, the place of the second death. I swam there in all of the horror there. Then I was transported to Hell where I was place before Satin and experienced his extreme hatred of me. Then I was taken to the Judgment seat of God and relived all of my sins in an instant in time. It is hear that God asks me: “Why should you live?”

This posting will communicate what happened as the books of Life are opened:

The Judgment Seat of Christ

Then another certainty dawned on me. Somehow, I realized that the question had to do with more than just mortal life and death on earth as I knew it. It was a question relating to a life lived forever with God or the second death as I experienced it in Golgotha (A-Journey-to-Golgotha and Inside-the-Lake-of-Fire-the-Second-death).

Now, even more than ever, I began to truly understand the significance and gravity of the question and the consequences of my answer. Death forever!

Agony, torture, and suffering for eternity in the lake of fire accompanied with unending torment at the hands of Satan. Then that “oh, no” feeling came over me in a wave. It is the feeling you get when your stupid mistake hurts someone real bad.

Just then the silence was broken. I could hear a commotion coming from somewhere behind the voice.

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. (Revelation 20:4)

I heard another voice say, “What about good works?” This was followed by more rustling and commotion. It sounded like a number of people were searching for the good works in my life.

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:12 – 14)

The Book of Life

The commotion soon stopped and I heard another voice reply, “There are none.” I stood there stunned and thought how can this be? Surely I have done some good works. This was followed by another shattering realization of the truth. The sad report was true as it seems that even the good things I had done in my life were for the wrong reasons.

In our next posting we will tell you what happened next.

May all of God’s blessings be yours!

God’s Question on Judgment Day

In my previous postings I have communicated to you about my severe medical condition that landed me in the intensive care unit, dying. There, I left my body and traveled through space and time and entered into the Lake of Fire, the place of the second death. I communicated how I swam in the Lake and of all the horror there. From there I traveled to Hell Itself where I was place before Satin and experience his extreme hatred of me. From there I was taken to the Judgment seat of God and relived all of my sins in an instant in time. Here is my account of what happened there:

The Last Judgment

Now I stand in the Judgment Place blind because of the fog and God asks me the question of the Judgment Place. The question was so profound that, quite frankly, it cut me to the core. It caught me by surprise and left me in a state of disarray. It was direct and to the point and it hit home like a sledgehammer. It is the question that demands an explanation. The question is simply: “Why should you live?”

But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: “As I live, says the LORD, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. (Romans 14:10 – 12)

At first, I was enamored by the voice because somehow there was an attraction that pulled you toward it. it was so perfect in every way. The voice was mellow and soothing, as love seemed to come from it. It was confident but not overly so. The voice was strong but not over bearing. It demonstrated perfect tempo being neither too slow nor too fast. The volume was perfect as well, being neither too loud nor too soft and enunciation and pronunciation were perfect as well.

At the same time, the voice conveyed a very real sense of caring and concern. Amazingly, the voice communicated all of these things by speaking only four words. Think about this, how could this be possible by asking a simple question?

There was no sense of anger in the voice. No inflection to reveal the acceptable response. Since the fog kept me from seeing the source of the voice, there was no opportunity to read body language or facial expression.

Eventually, I got over being intrigued with the voice as the ramifications of the question started to overwhelm me. I realized that this was a serious situation and I knew that my answer would determine my fate forevermore.

I thought: here I am being judged for all eternity. If I am being asked a question, there must be a right answer that can make a difference. Frantically, I started to think up excuses to rationalize my poor decisions and behavior.

The Last Judgment by Michelangelo

While I was doing this, another truth rocked me. It came to me from out of the blue. There were no lies here in this place, only truth existed. Even for someone like me, lies did not exist here because the one who asked the question already knew the truth.

In my next posting I will reveal the insights that came to be as I pondered my dilemma. I started to put things together and realized how great the consequences were of my answer.

Until then: May all of God’s blessings be upon you and your family.

JUDGMENT DAY

In my previous postings I have communicated to you about my severe medical condition that landed me in the intensive care unit, dying. There, I left my body and traveled through space and time and entered into the Lake of Fire, the place of the second death. I communicated how I swam in the Lake and of all the horror there. From there I traveled to Hell Itself where I am brought before Satin and experience his extreme hatred of me. Now I travel to the Judgment seat of God. Here is my account of what happened there:

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. (2 Corinthians 5:10)

The Last Judgment by Rogier Van Der Weyden

In the same way that I had been mysteriously taken from the Lake of Fire, I simply vanished from before the beast. I had been removed from the halls of hell.

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. (Revelation 1:18)

Mysteriously, I was transported to a broad place, a place of peace.

He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me. (Psalm 18:19)

It was as if I was on the inside a cloud but without the misty dampness. Everything around me was gray. My visibility was severely limited like it would be if I were in a thick fog. I looked around and saw nothing except the wall of grayness that engulfed me. I wondered about all these experiences. I felt fortunate to be in a place as peaceful and calming as this.

I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions, and like a cloud, your sins. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you. (Isaiah 44:22)

But everything was about to change. I was going to relive all of my sins in excruciating detail. The Judgment is about to begin. I will tell you all about it in my next posting.

The Last Judgment by Michelangelo

Until then, may God’s blessings be upon you.
