|1 Peter 4:17|
17 For the time has come that judgment must begin with the household of God.5 And if it first begins with us, what will the end of those be who do not obey the gospel of God?
|Matthew 12:20||Revelation 14:7,16:7|
7 Saying with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments."
12 If you say, "Behold, we did not know [at judgment];" does not he who ponders the heart consider it? And he who keeps your soul, does he not know it? And shall he not render to every man according to his works? [Notice! This verse tells us that ignorance of a coming judgment, or ingorance that judgment also applies to Christians, is no excuse. All men are judged on their words and works! And there will be many who say to Him on the day of judgement, "'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name cast out demons? And in your name done many wonderful works?' and then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you, depart from me you who work iniquity,'" (they were still sinning when they died and were defiled.]
|2 Corinthians 5:10|
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; so that everyone may receive what is due him, according to what he has done in the body, whether it is good or bad.3 [From the word of the Lord within: "Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion. No man is promoted or excused that repeats sin. You are without excuse O man. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior. The way is clear: listen and obey. There are two things I hate: pride and an excuse for failure."]
13 He who has shown no mercy, will receive judgment without mercy. But mercy triumphs over judgment.
|2 Peter 2:9 |
9 Then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust till the day of judgment to be punished.
