  • The Father Himself -- Himself, will reward you.
  • 00:00:02.150 --> 00:00:07.160
  • Did you know that the Father is going to give rewards
  • 00:00:07.190 --> 00:00:11.290
  • to you personally?
  • 00:00:12.020 --> 00:00:14.010
  • 00:00:14.040 --> 00:00:28.050
  • PASTOR ROBERT: We're in a series
  • 00:00:28.080 --> 00:00:29.050
  • called, "The End... What Happens Next?"
  • 00:00:29.080 --> 00:00:34.110
  • And we've talked about heaven, and hell,
  • 00:00:34.140 --> 00:00:36.170
  • and remember, the first week, we talked about
  • 00:00:36.200 --> 00:00:38.210
  • a tough question, and we talked about some easy questions then
  • 00:00:38.240 --> 00:00:42.030
  • about heaven.
  • 00:00:42.060 --> 00:00:43.030
  • Last week, we talked about a tough message.
  • 00:00:43.060 --> 00:00:45.250
  • And this week, I'm going to share with you on,
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:48.040
  • "A Tough Day."
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:50.060
  • "A Tough Day."
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:51.220
  • Now, we're gonna get to 1 Corinthians 3, okay,
  • 00:00:51.250 --> 00:00:54.140
  • but it's a little bit later.
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:56.010
  • I want to read you some verses before we get there, all right?
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:01:00.020
  • And we'll put all of these verses on the screen.
  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:02.200
  • 2 Peter 2:9 says, "The Lord knows how to deliver the godly
  • 00:01:02.230 --> 00:01:07.080
  • out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:11.060
  • under punishment for the day of judgment."
  • 00:01:11.090 --> 00:01:16.090
  • 2 Peter 3:7 says, "But the heavens and the earth,
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:19.050
  • which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:22.220
  • for fire until the day of judgment and perdition",
  • 00:01:22.250 --> 00:01:28.100
  • which means eternal judgment, "of ungodly men."
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:31.170
  • Matthew 12:36, "But I say to you that for every idle word
  • 00:01:31.200 --> 00:01:35.230
  • men may speak, they will give account of it
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:39.100
  • in the day of judgment."
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:42.180
  • And Hebrews 9:27 says, "It is appointed for men
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:45.120
  • to die once, but after this, the judgment."
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:50.130
  • So, is there a judgment day coming?
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:55.290
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:57.100
  • Will everyone be judged?
  • 00:01:57.130 --> 00:02:00.290
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:02.050
  • Will believers be judged?
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:04.080
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.060
  • Will unbelievers be judged?
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:07.140
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:08.180
  • But, will we be judged by grace or works?
  • 00:02:08.210 --> 00:02:14.190
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:02:14.220 --> 00:02:16.240
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:18.260
  • Now, listen.
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:20.000
  • I am not saying that salvation is grace and works,
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:23.220
  • but there is a believer's judgment and there
  • 00:02:23.250 --> 00:02:25.280
  • is an unbeliever's judgment.
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.270
  • But at both judgments, works are judged.
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:31.090
  • Let me show you a few other Scriptures, all right?
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:34.230
  • Ecclesiastes 12:14, "For God will bring every work."
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:40.080
  • Would you mind saying the word, "every"?
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:42.240
  • "Every work into judgment, including every",
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:47.160
  • would you say it again?
  • 00:02:47.190 --> 00:02:49.190
  • "Every secret thing, whether good or evil."
  • 00:02:49.220 --> 00:02:54.220
  • You can groan now.
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:57.290
  • Okay, you didn't groan!
  • 00:02:58.020 --> 00:02:58.290
  • I guess you're okay with it, all right?
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:01.110
  • Matthew 16:27, "For the Son of Man will come in the glory
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:05.000
  • of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each",
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:09.220
  • say the word, "each", "according to his works."
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:14.130
  • Revelation 22:12, "And behold, I am coming quickly,
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:17.120
  • and My reward is with Me, to give to every",
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:21.000
  • would you say the word, "every"?
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:22.280
  • "Every one according to his work."
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:25.280
  • Okay.
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:26.240
  • I am an each.
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:29.280
  • You are an each.
  • 00:03:30.010 --> 00:03:32.100
  • We are every.
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:33.270
  • God is going to reward each and every one, and judge each
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:38.140
  • and every person, according to his works.
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:43.170
  • But, are we saved by works?
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:45.090
  • Not at all.
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:46.130
  • Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace you have been saved
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:49.280
  • through faith, that not of yourselves.
  • 00:03:50.010 --> 00:03:52.070
  • It is the gift of God," would you say these
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:54.150
  • three words with me?
  • 00:03:54.180 --> 00:03:55.180
  • "Not of works."
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:57.280
  • Can you say it one more time?
  • 00:03:58.010 --> 00:03:59.080
  • "Not of works, lest anyone should boast."
  • 00:03:59.110 --> 00:04:03.140
  • Okay, so how do we explain this?
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:05.270
  • How do we explain that we're saved by grace,
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:09.070
  • but judged by works, according to our works?
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:14.100
  • I'm going to give you the most simple way
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:19.030
  • to understand this huge theological, doctrinal issue.
  • 00:04:19.060 --> 00:04:25.190
  • I'm gonna give you a very simple way.
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:26.290
  • It's two words.
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:28.080
  • We have to learn to determine and distinguish
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:31.140
  • between our, are you ready?
  • 00:04:31.170 --> 00:04:33.070
  • Here are the two words, belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:33.100 --> 00:04:37.240
  • Belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:41.250
  • Our belief determines, and you may want to write
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:44.050
  • this statement down.
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:45.110
  • Our belief determines where we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:50.080
  • Our behavior determines how we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:55.280
  • Let me say it again.
  • 00:04:56.010 --> 00:04:57.030
  • Our belief alone determines where we spend eternity,
  • 00:04:57.060 --> 00:05:02.260
  • and our behavior determines how we spend eternity,
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:06.000
  • whether heaven or hell.
  • 00:05:06.030 --> 00:05:07.160
  • In heaven, we're going to be rewarded for our works,
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:11.090
  • and in hell, people are going to be punished for their works.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:15.150
  • But, depending on where you go is completely dependent upon
  • 00:05:15.180 --> 00:05:19.280
  • whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not,
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:22.010
  • and the Bible is so clear about this.
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:25.100
  • There are two judgments, and I'm going to talk about each
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:28.020
  • of these two judgments today.
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:30.120
  • There are two judgments, the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:33.060
  • and the Great White Throne Judgment.
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:35.030
  • At the Judgment Seat of Christ, every person there
  • 00:05:35.060 --> 00:05:40.060
  • is a believer.
  • 00:05:40.090 --> 00:05:42.020
  • Every person is a believer.
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:44.030
  • At the Great White Throne Judgment,
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:46.100
  • every person is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:49.010
  • Every person at that judgment is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:51.100
  • This is why people don't understand.
  • 00:05:51.130 --> 00:05:53.010
  • Well, why are you even gonna have a judgment if every person
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:55.140
  • there at the Great White Throne
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:57.190
  • is an unbeliever and is going to go to hell, and why would you
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:06:00.090
  • have a judgment if every person at the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:02.220
  • is a believer and is gonna go to heaven?
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.070
  • The reason is because this judgment is not
  • 00:06:04.100 --> 00:06:06.110
  • to determine your belief.
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:07.290
  • Your belief has already determined which judgment
  • 00:06:08.020 --> 00:06:10.230
  • you're going to attend.
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:13.150
  • But at that judgment, at each judgment,
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:16.030
  • your behavior will be judged.
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:18.120
  • Here's what I'm trying to tell you.
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:19.180
  • It matters how you live.
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:23.030
  • It matters what you do on this earth.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:25.210
  • And according to Scripture, if you believe,
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:28.160
  • it will alter your behavior.
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:31.080
  • God's grace, God's unmerited favor, gives us the desire
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:36.230
  • and the power to want to serve God.
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:39.270
  • So, let's talk about these two judgments, all right?
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:43.030
  • We are not saved by works, but works do matter.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:47.000
  • By the way, let me say this.
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:48.100
  • This is why people who understand grace get upset
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:52.200
  • when people talk in the wrong way about works,
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:56.080
  • and this is why people who understand that our behavior
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:59.150
  • matters get upset when people talk about grace
  • 00:06:59.180 --> 00:07:03.180
  • sometimes and don't talk about behavior.
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:06.010
  • This is why.
  • 00:07:06.040 --> 00:07:07.000
  • But the two can marry.
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:08.200
  • They are married in Scripture and it's easy
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.110
  • to understand when you separate belief and behavior,
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:13.290
  • when you understand what each of them are for.
  • 00:07:14.020 --> 00:07:15.100
  • All right, so here's the first judgment,
  • 00:07:15.130 --> 00:07:17.160
  • the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:07:17.190 --> 00:07:19.230
  • Number one, the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:22.130
  • Now, are you in 1 Corinthians 3?
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:24.150
  • It says, "According to the grace of God which was given
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:27.060
  • to me, as a wise master builder I have laid
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:30.240
  • the foundation, and another builds on it."
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:34.020
  • He's referring to Apollos here.
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:35.240
  • "But let each one", and I'm not gonna ask you to repeat it,
  • 00:07:35.270 --> 00:07:38.190
  • but I want you to think about it every time I say it.
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:41.030
  • "Let each one take heed how he builds on it."
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:45.140
  • In other words, how he builds on the foundation of Jesus.
  • 00:07:45.170 --> 00:07:47.290
  • "For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:51.090
  • is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:54.230
  • Now if anyone", anyone, that includes us,
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:58.160
  • "builds on this foundation", Jesus, these are believers,
  • 00:07:58.190 --> 00:08:02.100
  • "with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
  • 00:08:02.130 --> 00:08:08.120
  • each one's work will become clear for the Day", capitalized,
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:14.170
  • Judgement Day, "will declare it, because it will be
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:17.180
  • revealed by fire, and the fire will test each one's work,
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:22.270
  • of what sort it is.
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:24.140
  • If anyone's work which he has built on it endures,
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:28.140
  • he will receive a reward."
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:31.040
  • You're gonna be rewarded for your works.
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:33.090
  • Verse 15, watch.
  • 00:08:33.120 --> 00:08:34.260
  • "If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss."
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:39.020
  • He's gonna lose his reward.
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:40.170
  • "But he himself will be saved."
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:43.280
  • These are all believers.
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:45.130
  • "Yet so as through fire."
  • 00:08:45.160 --> 00:08:47.230
  • Okay, I want you to notice a couple of things about this.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:49.250
  • You can be a believer and be building with wood,
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:53.230
  • hay, and straw.
  • 00:08:53.260 --> 00:08:55.290
  • You can be a believer and build with gold, silver,
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:58.240
  • and precious stones.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.040
  • In other words, you can be a believer and be doing works
  • 00:09:00.070 --> 00:09:04.000
  • that will last forever, and that will be eternal,
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:06.130
  • and that you will be rewarded for.
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:08.060
  • But, you can also be a believer and be doing temporal
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:10.150
  • things that you will not receive a reward for.
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:13.160
  • Or, you could actually do something that's eternal,
  • 00:09:13.190 --> 00:09:17.120
  • and because of the way you do it, you could lose your
  • 00:09:17.150 --> 00:09:19.180
  • reward for it.
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:20.270
  • Now, we're not talking about going to heaven or hell, okay?
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.240
  • Remember that.
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:23.290
  • Let me just show you how Jesus Himself said you could
  • 00:09:24.020 --> 00:09:26.220
  • lose a reward for a good work.
  • 00:09:26.250 --> 00:09:30.160
  • You've read this before, maybe you've never tied it in.
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:33.090
  • Matthew 6:1, "Take heed that you do not do your
  • 00:09:33.120 --> 00:09:36.120
  • charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:40.230
  • Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:46.170
  • Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:48.270
  • a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:51.170
  • in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have
  • 00:09:51.200 --> 00:09:54.020
  • glory for men.
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:55.190
  • Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward on earth.
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:10:00.030
  • But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:02.180
  • know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable
  • 00:10:02.210 --> 00:10:04.250
  • deed may be in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret,
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:10.140
  • will", watch this word, "Himself reward you openly."
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:16.240
  • Now, I want you to notice, first of all, you can do
  • 00:10:16.270 --> 00:10:18.200
  • something good and actually lose the reward for it
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:21.050
  • because of the way you do it.
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:22.240
  • But, notice this.
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:24.120
  • The Father Himself, Himself, will reward you!
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:29.290
  • Did you know the Father is going to give rewards
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:34.100
  • to you personally?
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:37.160
  • Personally!
  • 00:10:37.190 --> 00:10:38.220
  • It's not gonna be, like a billion people, you know,
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:42.000
  • there's gonna be like a billion people out there,
  • 00:10:42.030 --> 00:10:44.270
  • and the Father's gonna walk out and say, "Y'all done good!"
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:49.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:49.280 --> 00:10:52.280
  • And of course, someone in the back's gonna say,
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:54.080
  • "What'd He say?"
  • 00:10:54.110 --> 00:10:56.150
  • And I'll say, "They said they need more wood!"
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:58.240
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:01.070
  • That's not gonna be that way!
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:05.020
  • Let me show you another Scripture.
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.120
  • 1 John 2:28 says, "And now, little children, abide in Him",
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:10.070
  • abide in Him, "that when He appears, we may have
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:15.080
  • confidence", watch this, "and not be ashamed before
  • 00:11:15.110 --> 00:11:19.280
  • Him at His coming."
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:21.030
  • Now, this is talking to believers!
  • 00:11:21.060 --> 00:11:22.280
  • Why would you be ashamed?
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:24.010
  • Let me tell you why some believers will be ashamed
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:25.160
  • at the second coming, because they wasted their life.
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:28.290
  • They believed in Jesus, but they didn't serve Him,
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:32.150
  • they didn't love Him, they didn't walk with Him.
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:34.230
  • They didn't give their lives for the kingdom of God,
  • 00:11:34.260 --> 00:11:37.280
  • and now it's over, and they're not gonna receive many rewards.
  • 00:11:38.010 --> 00:11:41.280
  • Did you know that, do you realize, heaven's gonna
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:43.280
  • be cities?
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:45.110
  • Heaven's gonna be cities.
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:46.260
  • And in Luke 19, Jesus says, "To the good steward",
  • 00:11:46.290 --> 00:11:50.050
  • He's gonna say to one of 'em, "you be ruler over ten cities."
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:57.020
  • In other words, we're gonna have a responsibility
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.170
  • in heaven.
  • 00:11:58.200 --> 00:11:59.130
  • Jesus told us to store up treasure.
  • 00:11:59.160 --> 00:12:02.100
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:03.110
  • He said, "Store up treasure for yourselves",
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:06.220
  • for yourselves, "in heaven."
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:09.010
  • In other words, you're gonna need some money to do
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:11.290
  • business with in heaven.
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:14.000
  • Heaven is not just going to be floating on clouds!
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:17.030
  • We talked about this a few weeks ago.
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:19.240
  • Heaven is going to be a perfect earth, and a perfect
  • 00:12:19.270 --> 00:12:23.010
  • heaven with no sin, no sorrow, but we're going
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:27.130
  • to be living our lives.
  • 00:12:27.160 --> 00:12:30.290
  • When I was young, I went to a baseball camp one summer
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:34.280
  • and I goofed off the whole camp.
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:36.290
  • I mean, I just goofed off, and I played pranks on people,
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:40.130
  • and I just didn't really apply myself.
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:42.250
  • And the last day, when we got together, there were
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.250
  • these tables and there were trophies on these tables.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:50.010
  • And I remember thinking, wait a minute!
  • 00:12:50.040 --> 00:12:55.020
  • You didn't tell me that you were giving out awards!
  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:12:59.260
  • If I had known you were giving awards,
  • 00:12:59.290 --> 00:13:01.200
  • I wouldn't have goofed off this whole week!
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:05.040
  • And of course, I didn't get one, 'cause I'd goofed off
  • 00:13:05.070 --> 00:13:06.180
  • the whole week.
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:08.250
  • I wonder how many believers are going to get to heaven,
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:14.000
  • but not have many rewards, and not have much responsibility,
  • 00:13:14.030 --> 00:13:19.150
  • because there are degrees of heaven and there
  • 00:13:19.180 --> 00:13:25.190
  • are degrees of hell.
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:29.020
  • Let me ask you something.
  • 00:13:29.050 --> 00:13:30.290
  • Will the person who is a believer, but he really
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:36.090
  • doesn't give generously, he doesn't tithe, he doesn't serve,
  • 00:13:36.120 --> 00:13:39.250
  • he doesn't witness, he doesn't really give himself
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:41.270
  • to the kingdom, will he receive the same reward
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:45.230
  • for the person who gives sacrificially,
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:49.050
  • spends many hours helping the poor, wins many people to Jesus?
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:53.180
  • Will each receive the same reward?
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:13:55.070
  • No.
  • 00:13:55.100 --> 00:13:56.010
  • Remember, God's a just God.
  • 00:13:56.040 --> 00:13:58.160
  • God is going to recompense every person,
  • 00:13:58.190 --> 00:14:03.190
  • believers and unbelievers, according to our works.
  • 00:14:03.220 --> 00:14:08.260
  • And this person who gives his or her life to the kingdom,
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:12.230
  • and sows, and serves, and loves, and ministers,
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:17.010
  • is going to receive rewards.
  • 00:14:17.040 --> 00:14:20.030
  • So, that's the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:22.290
  • What about the Great White Throne Judgment?
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:24.280
  • Here's number two, the Great White Throne Judgment.
  • 00:14:25.010 --> 00:14:29.030
  • Turn over to Revelation 20.
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:33.020
  • Revelation 20, "The Great White Throne Judgment",
  • 00:14:33.050 --> 00:14:37.250
  • and I'm gonna show you why we call it the Great White
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:39.230
  • Throne Judgment, all right?
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:42.120
  • Revelation 20:11, "Then I saw a great white throne."
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:47.230
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:47.260 --> 00:14:56.130
  • That was all we theologians could come up with.
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:59.270
  • All right.
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:01.060
  • "Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it,
  • 00:15:01.090 --> 00:15:05.070
  • from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away.
  • 00:15:05.100 --> 00:15:09.210
  • And there was found no place for them.
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:12.160
  • And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:16.170
  • and books were opened."
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:18.160
  • Please notice, "books" here is plural.
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:22.130
  • The word "books" is plural.
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:24.210
  • "Books were opened.
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:26.010
  • And another book", singular, "was opened,
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:30.270
  • which is the Book of Life."
  • 00:15:31.000 --> 00:15:33.280
  • Listen, this is a great example of belief and behavior.
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:38.110
  • If you believe, your name is in the book.
  • 00:15:38.140 --> 00:15:40.180
  • But in the books, all of our works are there,
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:43.020
  • whether you're believers or unbelievers.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:45.090
  • See, the books are books of works, deeds that we did.
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:49.050
  • The book is whether you believe.
  • 00:15:49.080 --> 00:15:51.020
  • Okay?
  • 00:15:51.050 --> 00:15:52.020
  • Watch.
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:53.080
  • "And that book is the Book of Life, and the dead were
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:55.160
  • judged according to their works by the things which
  • 00:15:55.190 --> 00:15:59.210
  • were written in the books", plural.
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:03.170
  • "The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death
  • 00:16:03.200 --> 00:16:05.290
  • and Hades", remember Hades is the Greek word for hell,
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:08.270
  • "delivered up the dead who were in them, and they were
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:11.130
  • judged, each one according to his works."
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:16.200
  • Now, I asked you a question a moment ago.
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:19.070
  • Will a believer who really doesn't give, or love, or serve,
  • 00:16:19.100 --> 00:16:23.150
  • get the same reward as the believer who sacrifices,
  • 00:16:23.180 --> 00:16:26.020
  • gives generously, tithes, witnesses, serves?
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:29.220
  • Will they get the same reward?
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:31.000
  • Obviously, if you think about it, no, they won't get
  • 00:16:31.030 --> 00:16:32.180
  • the same reward.
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:33.240
  • We're going to be rewarded for our good works,
  • 00:16:33.270 --> 00:16:36.040
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:37.010
  • Okay.
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:38.200
  • Will an unbeliever, will an unbeliever who does not give
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:45.230
  • his life to Jesus, but he's a good man,
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.240
  • he just obstinately says, "No, I don't believe in God,
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:51.110
  • I don't believe in Jesus Christ, I will not give my life
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:54.090
  • to Jesus", but he goes to work, and he has
  • 00:16:54.120 --> 00:16:57.080
  • a family, and he just kind of has a normal life,
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:17:00.090
  • but he obstinately refuses to give his life to Jesus, will he
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:03.250
  • receive the same punishment as a murderer and a rapist?
  • 00:17:03.280 --> 00:17:12.180
  • No.
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:13.210
  • It's different.
  • 00:17:13.240 --> 00:17:14.250
  • There are degrees of punishment, and I'm gonna show
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:17.090
  • it to you in the Bible.
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:18.130
  • Think about this.
  • 00:17:18.160 --> 00:17:19.280
  • Here's the guy who's a good guy, but he doesn't give his
  • 00:17:20.010 --> 00:17:22.060
  • life to Jesus.
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.120
  • He's gonna go to hell.
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:26.000
  • And, here's Hitler, who murdered six million Jews.
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:30.210
  • God's a just God.
  • 00:17:30.240 --> 00:17:33.260
  • Hitler will be recompensed for his works.
  • 00:17:33.290 --> 00:17:39.020
  • He will receive punishment for his works.
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:42.080
  • Let me show you Jesus' own words.
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:45.260
  • Matthew 11:21, "Woe to you, Chorazin!
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:50.050
  • Woe to you, Bethsaida!
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:52.080
  • For if the mighty works which were done in you
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:55.090
  • had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented
  • 00:17:55.120 --> 00:17:59.240
  • long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:02.180
  • But I say to you, it will be more tolerable."
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:08.030
  • This in the Greek, by the way, means less suffering
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:11.110
  • or more lenient.
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:14.110
  • "It will be more tolerable" how could it be more or less
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:17.000
  • if it's both the same?
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:18.260
  • "For Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:23.000
  • And you, Capernaum", and notice again in the day
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:25.150
  • of judgment.
  • 00:18:25.180 --> 00:18:26.190
  • "And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven,
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.290
  • will be brought down to Hades", or hell, "for if the mighty
  • 00:18:29.020 --> 00:18:32.060
  • works which were done in you", now, watch.
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:34.000
  • This is an amazing statement Jesus is about to make.
  • 00:18:34.030 --> 00:18:36.120
  • "If the mighty works which were done in you had been
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:38.170
  • done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day."
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:44.020
  • In other words, Sodom would have repented.
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:46.070
  • "But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable
  • 00:18:46.100 --> 00:18:49.090
  • for the land of Sodom", Sodom and Gomorrah,"in the day
  • 00:18:49.120 --> 00:18:53.000
  • of judgment than for you."
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:56.260
  • This is amazing!
  • 00:18:56.290 --> 00:18:58.120
  • This is amazing.
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:19:00.060
  • And you know what was done in Capernaum, Chorazin,
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:03.080
  • and Bethsaida?
  • 00:19:03.110 --> 00:19:04.220
  • The works, the mighty works that were done?
  • 00:19:04.250 --> 00:19:06.040
  • Jesus!
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:07.120
  • Jesus Himself was in those cities doing miracles,
  • 00:19:07.150 --> 00:19:11.210
  • healing people, and preaching the gospel,
  • 00:19:11.240 --> 00:19:14.290
  • and they rejected Him.
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:16.070
  • You know what He said?
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:17.110
  • If I had gone to Sodom, they would have repented.
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:20.030
  • And God knows peoples' hearts.
  • 00:19:20.060 --> 00:19:22.240
  • This is Jesus talking!
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.000
  • We can't argue with it.
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:24.250
  • This is Jesus!
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:26.000
  • Jesus said Sodom would have remained until this day.
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:29.190
  • We would not have destroyed Sodom with fire.
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:31.290
  • They would have repented.
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:33.170
  • And I'm tellin' you, it's gonna be more tolerable
  • 00:19:33.200 --> 00:19:36.130
  • for Sodom in the day of judgment than it will for you.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:41.090
  • Let me read you this verse out of Romans 2:5.
  • 00:19:41.120 --> 00:19:43.170
  • "But in accordance", in accordance, or to the degree,
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:46.290
  • "with your hardness and your impenitent heart,
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:51.140
  • you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:57.080
  • of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God."
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:20:04.190
  • He's talkin' to unbelievers here.
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:06.070
  • He said, you know what you're doin'?
  • 00:20:06.100 --> 00:20:07.110
  • You're storing up too, but you're storing up wrath.
  • 00:20:07.140 --> 00:20:11.060
  • You have to go back to the attributes of God.
  • 00:20:11.090 --> 00:20:14.230
  • Yes, God is love, God is mercy, God is grace, God is omniscient,
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:18.280
  • God is omnipotent, but God is just.
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:23.230
  • And a just God is going to judge each and every person
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:30.200
  • one day, and believers will be rewarded and unbelievers
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:34.190
  • will be punished for their works on this earth.
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:39.210
  • Now, I said this a few weeks ago, but I really need
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:41.260
  • to say it again.
  • 00:20:41.290 --> 00:20:43.130
  • I know this is heavy.
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:45.070
  • I know what I'm telling you is heavy.
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:46.180
  • Listen to me, though.
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.160
  • I feel like the doctor that is saying to you, you have
  • 00:20:48.190 --> 00:20:53.040
  • a disease and if you don't treat it, you will die,
  • 00:20:53.070 --> 00:20:58.130
  • but there is a cure.
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:21:01.260
  • There is a cure.
  • 00:21:01.290 --> 00:21:03.020
  • So, I'm not saying these things to scare you!
  • 00:21:03.050 --> 00:21:05.050
  • I'm simply telling you the truth from God's word.
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:07.280
  • There is a judgment day coming!
  • 00:21:08.010 --> 00:21:11.080
  • And every person will stand before the judgment seat
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:13.280
  • of God, every person, whether it's the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:21:14.010 --> 00:21:16.120
  • or the Great White Throne Judgment, every person.
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:18.280
  • I'm not trying to scare you, I'm simply telling you,
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:21.090
  • there's a cure.
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:23.030
  • There's a cure, and it is to give your life to Jesus,
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:26.180
  • and to sell out to Him, and to serve Him completely.
  • 00:21:26.210 --> 00:21:30.090
  • Remember I told you about if I had known that the camp
  • 00:21:30.120 --> 00:21:33.250
  • was giving awards I wouldn't have goofed off so much?
  • 00:21:33.280 --> 00:21:36.190
  • I did a lot of things growing up not thinking
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:38.160
  • of consequences, unfortunately.
  • 00:21:38.190 --> 00:21:40.270
  • And I remember I used to hang out, now,
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:45.060
  • this is going to date me.
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:46.170
  • I understand that.
  • 00:21:46.200 --> 00:21:47.290
  • But, the hangout when I was growing up was the skating rink.
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:54.220
  • How many of you used to hang out at the skating rink?
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:58.020
  • Okay.
  • 00:21:58.050 --> 00:21:59.030
  • See, these are the older people in the crowd.
  • 00:21:59.060 --> 00:22:00.280
  • Okay?
  • 00:22:01.010 --> 00:22:01.190
  • All right.
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:04.150
  • And my father dropped me off.
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:06.100
  • I didn't have a driver's license at this time.
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:07.270
  • Dropped me off at a skating rink, but knew that I was up
  • 00:22:08.000 --> 00:22:10.090
  • to no good.
  • 00:22:10.120 --> 00:22:11.150
  • Now, I was beginning to hang out with the wrong crowd,
  • 00:22:11.180 --> 00:22:13.260
  • so after he dropped me off, he kind of circled the block
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.290
  • and came back.
  • 00:22:16.020 --> 00:22:18.290
  • And then, he watched from a hiding place, which I don't
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:22.110
  • think was fair, by the way.
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:24.010
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:26.020
  • I was reminded when I was preparing this message,
  • 00:22:26.050 --> 00:22:28.030
  • it says, "The Father, who sees in secret."
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:32.220
  • Okay, I had that father!
  • 00:22:32.250 --> 00:22:36.170
  • He watched from a hiding place, and I started,
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:40.030
  • because I thought it was tough and cool,
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:41.250
  • and I had such a severe rejection problem.
  • 00:22:41.280 --> 00:22:44.030
  • I wanted to be accepted.
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.080
  • I'd started smoking cigarettes.
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:47.180
  • He knew where that would lead, which it did.
  • 00:22:47.210 --> 00:22:49.180
  • It led then to drinking and drugs.
  • 00:22:49.210 --> 00:22:51.110
  • That's where I went from there, because it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:51.140 --> 00:22:54.190
  • It wasn't the cigarettes, it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:54.220 --> 00:22:56.190
  • That was the problem.
  • 00:22:56.220 --> 00:22:57.240
  • And so, he knew that, and so he watched that night,
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:23:01.180
  • the whole night I was there, until he picked me up
  • 00:23:01.210 --> 00:23:04.030
  • at the designated time.
  • 00:23:04.060 --> 00:23:06.030
  • He drove around the block again and he was very sneaky,
  • 00:23:06.060 --> 00:23:09.000
  • very sneaky!
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:10.200
  • And, picked me up and then we got home, and he asked
  • 00:23:10.230 --> 00:23:13.110
  • about the cigarettes.
  • 00:23:13.140 --> 00:23:14.150
  • I lied, of course.
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:15.200
  • Finally, he produced the evidence, and here's what he
  • 00:23:15.230 --> 00:23:18.210
  • did though.
  • 00:23:18.240 --> 00:23:20.000
  • He punished me according to the number of cigarettes
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:23.220
  • I smoked.
  • 00:23:23.250 --> 00:23:26.290
  • In other words, he punished, if you smoked
  • 00:23:27.020 --> 00:23:29.190
  • this many.
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:30.290
  • If you'd have just smoked two, it would have been this long,
  • 00:23:31.020 --> 00:23:32.210
  • but you smoked, you know, whatever it was.
  • 00:23:32.240 --> 00:23:34.210
  • And so, again, here's the thought that came to me.
  • 00:23:34.240 --> 00:23:38.040
  • If I had known!
  • 00:23:38.070 --> 00:23:39.280
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:42.230
  • It was the same thought that I had at camp!
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:46.080
  • If I had known they were giving awards,
  • 00:23:46.110 --> 00:23:47.210
  • I would have acted differently!
  • 00:23:47.240 --> 00:23:49.110
  • If I had known that my punishment would
  • 00:23:49.140 --> 00:23:51.100
  • be in proportion to my sin, are you listening?
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:24:02.230
  • Now, let me say one other thing.
  • 00:24:02.260 --> 00:24:05.220
  • Everyone at the Judgment Seat's a believer.
  • 00:24:05.250 --> 00:24:09.000
  • Everyone at the Great White Throne Judgment
  • 00:24:09.030 --> 00:24:11.040
  • is an unbeliever.
  • 00:24:11.070 --> 00:24:12.130
  • But, listen to me carefully.
  • 00:24:12.160 --> 00:24:14.090
  • It's your choice which judgment you attend.
  • 00:24:14.120 --> 00:24:22.030
  • It's your choice.
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:24.090
  • PASTOR ROBERT: Remember, our belief determines
  • 00:24:24.120 --> 00:24:26.160
  • where we spend eternity, and our behavior determines
  • 00:24:26.190 --> 00:24:30.020
  • how we spend eternity.
  • 00:24:30.050 --> 00:24:32.060
  • So, I first want to encourage those of you who
  • 00:24:32.090 --> 00:24:34.080
  • are believers to live your lives in such a way that God
  • 00:24:34.110 --> 00:24:39.100
  • will reward you for your good works.
  • 00:24:39.130 --> 00:24:42.030
  • That's what the Bible says.
  • 00:24:42.060 --> 00:24:43.290
  • I also want to encourage those of you who've never given
  • 00:24:44.020 --> 00:24:46.060
  • your lives to Jesus Christ that you are not watching
  • 00:24:46.090 --> 00:24:49.180
  • today by accident.
  • 00:24:49.210 --> 00:24:51.050
  • I believe that the Holy Spirit led you to watch today's
  • 00:24:51.080 --> 00:24:54.180
  • program so you could learn that Jesus Christ
  • 00:24:54.210 --> 00:24:58.290
  • is the Son of God, that He died on the cross for your sins
  • 00:24:59.020 --> 00:25:02.250
  • and for my sins, and that eternal life is a free gift
  • 00:25:02.280 --> 00:25:07.020
  • of God that we can never earn, but we can receive it.
  • 00:25:07.050 --> 00:25:11.230
  • And I want to encourage you to receive Jesus today.
  • 00:25:11.260 --> 00:25:16.100
  • Hey, thanks so much for watching.
  • 00:25:16.130 --> 00:25:18.080
  • I want to encourage you to watch next time
  • 00:25:18.110 --> 00:25:20.100
  • as I continue this series.

  • ANNOUNCER: Have you ever wondered what Heaven
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:24.270
  • will be like, or who really goes to Heaven?
  • 00:25:25.000 --> 00:25:28.100
  • Maybe you've found yourself asking questions like,
  • 00:25:28.130 --> 00:25:30.250
  • "How could a loving God send anyone to Hell?"
  • 00:25:30.280 --> 00:25:33.280
  • "Is Hell even a real place?"
  • 00:25:34.010 --> 00:25:35.230
  • "How do I know I'm going to Heaven?"
  • 00:25:35.260 --> 00:25:38.190
  • In today's popular culture, people have plenty of opinions
  • 00:25:38.220 --> 00:25:41.130
  • when it comes to questions like these,
  • 00:25:41.160 --> 00:25:43.110
  • and some of the more common opinions are both confusing
  • 00:25:43.140 --> 00:25:46.060
  • and contradictory.
  • 00:25:46.090 --> 00:25:48.050
  • The good news is, we don't have to rely on popular opinion,
  • 00:25:48.080 --> 00:25:50.260
  • or even our own thoughts or fears
  • 00:25:50.290 --> 00:25:52.200
  • to answer these questions.
  • 00:25:52.230 --> 00:25:54.260
  • We can find the answers to these and many other
  • 00:25:54.290 --> 00:25:56.220
