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?”
If you would like to go back and review the postings that tell the above story please use these hyperlinks:
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.
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).
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.
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.
