We will all stand in Judgment.

That’s the way this will go.

I believe that Jesus is the Lord and Saviour of my soul. My eternal life. Everything that I will ever have, be, do, is all because of Jesus.

God is the One that picked Jesus. I don’t know why. Probably if He had picked me, y’all would have been on your own.

You would have lost me when I knew it was coming time for me to be your sacrificial lamb. I went to pray and ask God to take this from me. And y’all were sleeping when I get back. All Jesus asked was that we stay awake, and praying wouldn’t hurt :) I’d have lost my patience with the whole thing. Looking at how we had performed until then, yep, y’all would have been on your own.

Not very nice or kind of me, is it? :) Sad but true. God is helping me with my brotherly love, and patience issues.

Thank goodness we have Jesus. He is the one that was ready to jump on that cross for us. He is the one who would have given everything for every one of us :) I love Jesus. Praise the Lord and His Father who sent Him.

One day though, the Word says that we will stand in judgment for our deeds. Shew, wouldn’t want to be in line behind me :) Not taking it lightly but when I see those verses, and feel the meaning I will be there a while.

There are the debates about, we are forgiven, Amen! Whe are heirs, we are clean. Praise God, I believe! BUT there is a difference between being forgiven and giving account of ummmm I don’t know…..everything. 

Everything we have said, thought, done, didn’t do. The fear of God fills me when I think of the list.

Does it you?

All I can think of is when I was a child and had done something wrong. It was inevitable. I had to confess it to my parent(s) That was the worst feeling in the world. The fear of the LORD fills me when I think that day is coming with Him and me :)

We are forgiven but everything single thing we do we have to account for. It is not free. It was paid for with a price, our Lord Christ Jesus. Our actions have a price. Jesus paid it.

What is our payment plan?

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

    1. Amen Sister. Every time I read it in the Bible, shows me how selfish I am. I would have washed my hands of us quite a few times. It also shows me how selfless Jesus and God are, their love for us, and willingness, and wanting for us to live. Praise the LORD and Jesus for the hope they gave us. LORD thank You for continuing to bless Leola :)

      1. As much as we may think we love ourselves and others, it will never compare to the love God has for us. Our God is an Awesome God. Thank you for your prayers on my behalf. May goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life.

  1. Yes! Thank you. I tried to explain this ‘fear’ (translate reverence) last week at Bible study. They all looked blankly at me. “We’re forgiven,” they said. Oh, I wish it were so simple for me. I imagine myself standing in the awesome, awe-ful Presence and knowing what all’s written in that Book, I quake.

    1. Amen. I know we are forgiven, and God isn’t going to throw it all in our faces and send us to hell. Jesus paid for us, we believe in Him, and that God raised Him from the dead. But like you said standing there in His presence and giving and account, even though we are forgiven for those acts, so yes, I totally get what your saying. :)

  2. Hebrews 9

    “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

    25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

    26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

    27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

    28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

    Did you see it miss Margaret?

    Look again…

    “and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

    God isn’t going to be bringing up any of the Christian’s sins.

    We will have to give an account for the works that we’ve done. But the works done of the flesh will be burnt up, and only the good works done in faith will stand the test of fire.

    But God isn’t going to be holding one single sin against you dear saint.
    Otherwise, Jesus’ sacrificial death as punishment for your sins, didn’t actually accomplish anything for your sin payment.

    Was He punished for all of your sins?
    Or wasn’t He?

    God bless you sister in your pursuit of discernment.

    All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

    1. P.S. miss Margaret,
      I made and posted a video this mornin that I believe can be a blessing to you.

      Part of that video’s content, addressed the fear that you expressed in this very post of yours.

      God bless you sister. 🙂

    2. Thank you Brother for that great addition. Yes, I believe that God isn’t holding one thing against me. I wrote this some time ago after one of my morning readings about us sitting before the judgment seat and giving account of ourselves. “for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” Romans 14:10-12 and “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” Matthew 12:36. This is what I was referring. I didn’t mean to be misleading. I just meant shew thats a lot to give an account/confess. :)

      When I said “what is our payment plan”, again maybe I should have been more clear. I meant it as what are we doing now? Are we resting on, well , Jesus died for my sins so it is free pass to do whatever I want. I am forgiven, right? Or are we living the life the LORD wants us to live, since He gave His only Son for a sacrifice for our salvation. Are we being appreciative (if that is the right word) for the gift of all gifts, one that we could never earn that was given freely to us.

      Thank you so much for always contributing Godly advice. After reading your comment I can see how some might read my post and think that we earn our salvation and that is not the case. God gave His Son for that, Jesus laid His life down willingly for that. It is not something that we could ever earn by our deeds.

      Thank you again Brother, and I thank the LORD for continuing to bless you and use you :)

      1. Hi sister, I appreciate your diligence and heart for God.

        Here’s the context of that warning you cited from Matthew 12…

        31 “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

        32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

        33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

        34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

        35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

        36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

        37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

        That warning was in response to His rejectors who had just been accusing Him of operating by the power of Satan.

        Yes, we should always be living for God to the best of our ability.
        But our flesh is not regenerate, and is full of sin, and thus, not the basis of our assurance.

        I hope that helped a little.

        God bless you sister. 🙂

      2. Thank you for your kind words Brother but anything that looks like diligence or love from my direction is proof of God. And of course you always help me :)

        I get it was a warning but I also feel it didn’t just mean that His rejectors would have to give an account but that all men would. And not just every man but every word, evil words, good words, idle words. All words.

        I watched your video, or listened would be the more accurate term :) It is very good, easy to understand, to the point, (all of which I appreciate because I am not the be all end all of the Bible, and I appreciate to the point with not a lot of extra stuff thats not in the Bible) and i am pretty sure we are on the same page. Maybe not the same verbage but on the same page. :) I know you are much more versed in different beliefs, all the “isms” as I call it so maybe that is where some of the topics we discuss are beyond what I have learned.

        I would like your input on the other verses I used, Romans 14:10-12. If you would be so kind :)

      3. Hi miss Margaret,
        Here’s the context of the Romans verses that you mentioned:

        Romans 14

        “5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

        6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

        7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

        8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

        9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

        10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

        11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

        12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

        13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

        14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

        15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

        16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

        17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

        18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

        19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.”

        We will have to give an account of our lives to God, but Christians won’t be doing so on the basis of sin-guilt/punishment.

        Our deeds will be evaluated whether or not they had any value to the kingdom of God.

        (However non Christians will be horrified at judgement, because all of their deeds will be sin).

        1 Corinthians 3

        “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

        12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

        13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

        14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

        15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

        Revelation 20

        ” And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

        12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

        13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

        14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

        15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

        The Christian has been forgiven of all sin, and need not fear judgement…

        1 John 4

        “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

        17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

        18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

        Every Christian is a fully forgiven person.

        I hope that this has helped you a little, and I give all glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

        Lord bless you and your family sister.

      4. Thank You Brother for those additions. I am thankful for the salvation we have in our Lord and Saviour. As unworthy and filthy as I was, and as much as I fail each day that God loves me still, and that Jesus loves me enough to give Himself for me, for my eternal life, and not just me but for us ALL.

        Now off the subject but when is it going to warm up???? I moved here and thought well at least I won’t freeze this winter. It’s warmer back in NC than it has been here hahaha :)
