  • AND WHILE HIS AMAZING GRACE TRULY COVERS ALL OUR SINS
  • 00:00:23.230 --> 00:00:28.130
  • WE CANNOT FULLY APPRECIATE GOD'S MERCY
  • 00:00:28.140 --> 00:00:31.160
  • UNTIL WE UNDERSTAND HIS ABSOLUTE HOLINESS.
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:35.220
  • YOU SEE ONE DAY, GOD'S PATIENCE WILL RUN OUT.
  • 00:00:35.230 --> 00:00:39.260
  • AND HE WILL COME AGAIN TO JUDGE THE UNRIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:43.210
  • THE BIBLE DESCRIBES THIS EPIC EVENT WHEN EACH PERSON WILL
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:47.150

  • THE RAPTURE IS GOING TO BE LIKE?
  • 00:01:04.010 --> 00:01:05.270
  • WHAT'S NEXT ON GOD'S TIMELINE?
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:08.090
  • WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HADES,
  • 00:01:08.100 --> 00:01:10.260
  • HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE?
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:12.270
  • WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?
  • 00:01:12.280 --> 00:01:14.080

  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:30.160
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY!
  • 00:01:30.170 --> 00:01:31.250
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:34.050
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:34.060 --> 00:01:41.060
  • WARREN WIERSBE TELLS THE
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:42.220
  • STORY ABOUT A FRONTIER TOWN IN WHICH A WAGON
  • 00:01:42.230 --> 00:01:48.070
  • BEING PULLED ALONG BY A HORSE SUDDENLY BOLTED
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:52.100
  • AWAY AS THE HORSE BEGAN TO RUN CARRYING THE WAGON
  • 00:01:52.110 --> 00:01:55.260
  • THAT IN TURN HAD A SMALL BOY IN IT.
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:59.090
  • A YOUNG MAN SEEING THE DANGER THE YOUNG CHILD
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:02.080
  • WAS IN SUDDENLY GOT ON A HORSE AND PUT HIS OWN
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:05.000
  • LIFE AT RISK TO RESCUE THE LITTLE BOY.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:08.280
  • THAT LITTLE BOY GREW UP TO BE A RUTHLESS
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:12.010
  • CRIMINAL, AND ONE DAY HE FOUND HIMSELF STANDING
  • 00:02:12.020 --> 00:02:15.260
  • BEFORE A JUDGE AWAITING BEING SENTENCED FOR A
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:19.050
  • MURDER HE HAD COMMITTED.
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:21.060
  • AND AS THE YOUNG CRIMINAL LOOKED UP AT THE JUDGE,
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.160
  • HE RECOGNIZED THE JUDGE AS THE MAN WHO HAD SAVED
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:27.160
  • HIS LIFE MANY YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:30.210
  • AND SO HE MADE A PLEA FOR MERCY TO THE JUDGE BASED
  • 00:02:30.220 --> 00:02:34.050
  • ON WHAT THE JUDGE HAD DONE FOR HIM
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:35.210
  • MANY YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:02:35.220 --> 00:02:37.280
  • BUT THE JUDGE SILENCED THE PLEA OF MERCY WITH
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:40.190
  • THESE WORDS.
  • 00:02:40.200 --> 00:02:42.170
  • HE LOOKED AT THE YOUNG CRIMINAL AND HE SAID,
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:45.010
  • "SON, MANY YEARS AGO I WAS YOUR SAVIOR;
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:50.150
  • BUT TODAY I AM YOUR JUDGE;
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:53.120
  • AND THEREFORE I SENTENCE YOU TO BE HANGED."
  • 00:02:53.130 --> 00:02:56.220
  • MORE THAN 2.000 YEARS AGO JESUS CHRIST CAME TO BE
  • 00:02:58.240 --> 00:03:02.220
  • OUR SAVIOR.
  • 00:03:02.230 --> 00:03:04.160
  • HE LIVED A HUMILIATING LIFE;
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:06.060
  • HE DIED AN EXCRUCIATING DEATH IN ORDER TO PROVIDE
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:09.190
  • FOR US THE FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS.
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:13.000
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS ONE DAY JESUS CHRIST IS
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:15.240
  • COMING BACK TO EARTH NOT AS THE SAVIOR OF THE
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:19.020
  • WORLD, BUT AS THE JUDGE OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:22.200
  • AND IT'S THAT SECOND COMING OF CHRIST WHEN HE
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:25.190
  • COMES TO JUDGE ALL UNBELIEVERS THAT WE'RE
  • 00:03:25.200 --> 00:03:28.150
  • GOING TO LOOK AT TODAY.
  • 00:03:28.160 --> 00:03:30.150
  • IT IS A JUDGMENT THAT TAKES PLACE AT AN EVENT
  • 00:03:30.160 --> 00:03:33.230
  • WE OFTEN CALL THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:03:33.240 --> 00:03:37.210
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES TURN TO REVELATION 20.
  • 00:03:37.220 --> 00:03:41.050
  • VERSES 4-6 "AND I SAW THRONES,
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:44.230
  • AND THEY SAT ON THEM, AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN TO THEM.
  • 00:03:44.240 --> 00:03:48.290
  • AND I SAW THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAD BEEN
  • 00:03:49.000 --> 00:03:51.070
  • BEHEADED BECAUSE OF THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS AND
  • 00:03:51.080 --> 00:03:54.210
  • BECAUSE OF THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:56.180
  • AND THOSE WHO HAD NOT WORSHIPED THE BEAST OR
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:59.000
  • HIS IMAGE, AND HAD NOT RECEIVED THE MARK UPON
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:01.260
  • THEIR FOREHEAD AND ON THEIR HAND;
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:04.100
  • AND THEY CAME TO LIFE AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST FOR A
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:07.250
  • THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:09.100
  • THE REST OF THE DEAD DID NOT COME TO LIFE UNTIL
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:12.150
  • THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE COMPLETED.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:14.250
  • THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:17.150
  • BLESSED AND HOLY IS THE ONE WHO HAS A PART IN THE
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:20.160
  • FIRST RESURRECTION; OVER THESE THE SECOND DEATH
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:23.210
  • HAS NO POWER, BUT THEY WILL BE PRIESTS OF GOD
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:26.250
  • AND OF CHRIST AND WILL REIGN WITH HIM FOR A
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:29.140
  • THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.050
  • THIS PHRASE "THE FIRST RESURRECTION" INTRODUCES
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:35.040
  • US TO A CONCEPT THAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IF
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:38.030
  • WE'RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND THE END TIMES,
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:40.070
  • AND IT'S THE CONCEPT OF TWO RESURRECTIONS.
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:44.190
  • NOW THAT WORD "RESURRECTION" COMES FROM
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:47.020
  • THE GREEK WORD "ANASTASIS."
  • 00:04:47.030 --> 00:04:49.060
  • IT'S A WORD THAT IS USED 40 TIMES IN THE GREEK NEW
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:52.080
  • TESTAMENT, AND IT ALWAYS REFERS TO THE RAISING OF
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:57.000
  • A PERSON'S PHYSICAL BODY.
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:59.160
  • YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN WE AS CHRISTIANS
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:02.100
  • DIE, OUR SPIRIT GOES TO HEAVEN OUR BODIES ARE
  • 00:05:02.110 --> 00:05:05.170
  • LEFT BEHIND IN THE GRAVE.
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:07.040
  • WHEN THE NON-CHRISTIAN DIES,
  • 00:05:07.050 --> 00:05:08.170
  • HIS SPIRIT GOES TO HADES; HIS BODY IS LEFT BEHIND
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:11.220
  • IN THE GRAVE.
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:12.290
  • BUT BOTH THE BODIES OF CHRISTIANS AND
  • 00:05:13.000 --> 00:05:15.230
  • NON-CHRISTIANS WILL BE RAISED AT SOME
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:18.080
  • FUTURE TIME.
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:19.130
  • THE BODY OF CHRISTIANS WILL BE RAISED SO THAT WE
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:22.080
  • CAN EXPERIENCE EVERLASTING BLESSING.
  • 00:05:22.090 --> 00:05:24.290
  • THE BODY OF NON-CHRISTIANS WILL BE
  • 00:05:25.000 --> 00:05:26.280
  • RESURRECTED SO THAT THEY CAN EXPERIENCE
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:29.140
  • EVERLASTING JUDGMENT.
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:31.110
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT EACH OF THESE RESURRECTIONS IN
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:33.210
  • MORE DETAIL.
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:34.290
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION IS CALLED VERY CREATIVELY
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:39.200
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:41.080
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.100
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:05:43.110 --> 00:05:46.020
  • IT IS THE RESURRECTION OF ALL CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:49.250
  • BUT HERE IS THE CONCEPT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND:
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:52.100
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION DOESN'T HAPPEN
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:54.230
  • ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:56.120
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION HAPPENS AT FOUR DIFFERENT
  • 00:05:56.130 --> 00:05:59.280
  • TIMES IN HISTORY.
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:01.230
  • THAT IS, EVERY CHRISTIAN GOES IMMEDIATELY INTO THE
  • 00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:04.120
  • PRESENCE OF CHRIST WHEN HE DIES,
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:06.250
  • BUT HIS BODY IS RAISED AT A PARTICULAR TIME IN
  • 00:06:06.260 --> 00:06:10.020
  • HISTORY, AND IT'S NOT THE SAME FOR ALL BELIEVERS.
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:12.280
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION AS
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:15.240
  • A HEAVENLY CARPOOL, OK; THAT DIFFERENT CHRISTIANS
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:19.280
  • ARE PICKED UP AT DIFFERENT POINTS IN
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.200
  • HISTORY; THAT IS THEIR BODIES ARE RAISED UP AND
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:24.100
  • CHANGED INTO THE RESURRECTION BODY.
  • 00:06:24.110 --> 00:06:26.240
  • WHERE DO WE FIND THAT?
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:28.040
  • HOLD YOUR PLACE HERE AND TURN OVER TO
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.250
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20, "BUT NOW CHRIST HAS BEEN
  • 00:06:29.260 --> 00:06:34.170
  • RAISED FROM THE DEAD, HE IS THE FIRST FRUITS OF
  • 00:06:34.180 --> 00:06:38.260
  • THOSE WHO ARE ASLEEP."
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:41.210
  • AND WHAT PAUL IS SAYING IS: AS MAGNIFICENT AS THE
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:44.210
  • RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST WAS,
  • 00:06:44.220 --> 00:06:48.110
  • IT'S NOT THE WHOLE STORY.
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:50.020
  • JESUS CHRIST WAS JUST THE FIRST OF MANY WHO WOULD
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:53.230
  • BE RAISED FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:55.080
  • HE WAS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:56.270
  • HE WAS THE SAMPLE OF A GREATER RESURRECTION
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:07:00.090
  • YET TO COME.
  • 00:07:00.100 --> 00:07:01.200
  • LOOK AT 1 CORINTHIANS 15:22-23,
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:04.150
  • "FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, SO ALSO IN CHRIST ALL
  • 00:07:04.160 --> 00:07:10.070
  • SHALL BE MADE ALIVE."
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:12.020
  • IT'S NOT JUST CHRIST WHO WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:14.200
  • BUT EVERY FOLLOWER OF CHRIST WILL ALSO BE
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:17.150
  • RAISED FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:18.210
  • VERSE 23, "BUT EACH IN HIS OWN ORDER."
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:22.120
  • TRANSLATION: BUT EVERYBODY HAS TO WAIT THEIR TURN.
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:26.040
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S SAYING: WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:27.250
  • RAISED, BUT EACH ACCORDING TO A SPECIFIC ORDER.
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:31.280
  • NOW UNDERLINE THAT WORD "ORDER".
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.230
  • IT'S THE GREEK WORD "TAGMA," T-A-G-M-A.
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:37.210
  • AND IT'S A WORD THAT REFERS TO A
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:40.060
  • MILITARY PARADE.
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:41.280
  • JUST IMAGINE A PARADE THAT IS GOING DOWN A LONG
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:46.010
  • STRETCH OF A BOULEVARD WITH EVERYBODY WATCHING
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:49.080
  • AND AT DIFFERENT POINTS ALONG THE PARADE
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.240
  • DIFFERENT CORPS OF THE MILITARY FALL INTO THEIR
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:54.180
  • PLACE IN THE PARADE.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:56.080
  • AND AS THE PARADE CONTINUES,
  • 00:07:56.090 --> 00:07:58.020
  • IT GETS LARGER, AND LARGER, AND LARGER.
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:08:01.100
  • NOW THAT IS THE WORD-PICTURE PAUL IS
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:03.200
  • PAINTING HERE.
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.010
  • THINK OF THE RESURRECTION,
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:06.090
  • IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF A CARPOOL,
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:08.050
  • THINK OF IT AS A HEAVENLY RESURRECTION PARADE.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:12.060
  • WHO'S IN THAT PARADE?
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:13.140
  • WELL, IT TELLS US IN VERSE 23.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:15.160
  • FIRST OF ALL, CHRIST THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:18.110
  • HE'S THE LEADER OF THE PARADE.
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:20.010
  • HE'S THE GUY OUT FRONT.
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:21.290
  • HE IS THE ONE LEADING THE PARADE.
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:23.250
  • THAT'S WHAT EPHESIANS 4:8 SAYS,
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:25.130
  • "WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH,
  • 00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:26.240
  • HE LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES,
  • 00:08:26.250 --> 00:08:29.150
  • AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN."
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:31.000
  • CHRIST IS AT THE HEAD OF THAT MILITARY PARADE.
  • 00:08:31.010 --> 00:08:33.280
  • NOW, NOTICE THE NEXT GROUP IN THE PARADE ROUTE
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:37.020
  • "AFTER THAT," VERSE 23, "THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST'S AT HIS COMING."
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:43.290
  • THE NEXT GROUP AFTER JESUS TO RECEIVE THEIR
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:46.130
  • RESURRECTION BODY WILL BE YOU AND I - THE CHURCH.
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:49.220
  • AND WE GET OUR BODIES AT THE RAPTURE,
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:52.050
  • BUT ALSO, IT REFERS TO ANOTHER GROUP,
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:54.130
  • THIRDLY THOSE WHO WILL RECEIVE THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:08:54.140 --> 00:08:57.040
  • BODIES AT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:59.290
  • IT IS THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO WERE MARTYRED DURING
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:02.250
  • THE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:04.030
  • THAT GROUP OF CHRISTIANS WERE KILLED FOR THEIR
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:06.190
  • FAITH; THEY WOULD NOT RECEIVE THE MARK.
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:09.000
  • OF COURSE, THEIR SOUL IMMEDIATELY WENT TO
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:11.000
  • HEAVEN, BUT JOHN SAYS: I SAW THEM COME TO LIFE AT
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:14.200
  • THAT TIME.
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:15.210
  • THAT IS, THEY RECEIVED THEIR RESURRECTION BODIES
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.130
  • AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MILLENNIUM WHEN CHRIST RETURNS.
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:21.160
  • NOT ONLY THAT, DANIEL 12:1-2 SAYS THE
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:24.060
  • OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS WILL RECEIVE THEIR BODIES:
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:26.290
  • ADAM, AND EVE, AND JONAH, AND ESTHER,
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:30.200
  • AND DAVID - ALL WILL RECEIVE THEIR
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:32.210
  • RESURRECTION BODIES.
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:33.210
  • THEY'RE WITH CHRIST NOW, BUT THEY RECEIVE THEIR
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:35.280
  • RESURRECTION BODIES AT THE SECOND COMING.
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.180
  • AND THEN THERE'S ONE FINAL GROUP,
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:40.100
  • THE FOURTH PICK-UP POINT IN THE RESURRECTION PARADE.
  • 00:09:40.110 --> 00:09:43.180
  • THEN COMES THE END WHEN HE DELIVERS UP THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:09:43.190 --> 00:09:47.080
  • THAT IS THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:09:47.090 --> 00:09:49.080
  • THE 1.000-YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:51.110
  • THERE IS ONE FINAL GROUP TO RECEIVE THEIR
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:53.120
  • RESSURECTION BODIES.
  • 00:09:53.130 --> 00:09:54.190
  • WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:56.090
  • IT WILL BE THOSE CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE GONE
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:59.150
  • INTO THE 1.000-YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST IN THEIR
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:02.020
  • NATURAL BODIES.
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:03.070
  • WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT MORE IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:05.090
  • NOT EVERY CHRISTIAN WILL BE SLAUGHTERED DURING THE
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:07.230
  • TRIBULATION.
  • 00:10:07.240 --> 00:10:08.160
  • SOME WILL SURVIVE.
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:10.160
  • THEY WILL ENTER THE MILLENNIUM IN THEIR
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:13.080
  • NATURAL BODIES.
  • 00:10:13.090 --> 00:10:14.290
  • THEY WILL GIVE BIRTH TO OTHER PEOPLE DURING THE
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:17.150
  • MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:10:17.160 --> 00:10:18.140
  • THOSE CHILDREN WILL DIE DURING THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:10:18.150 --> 00:10:20.210
  • THEY'LL LIVE LONGER THAN THEY DO NOW,
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:22.160
  • BUT THEY WILL DIE.
  • 00:10:22.170 --> 00:10:23.230
  • THEY RECEIVE THEIR RESURRECTION BODIES AT
  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:25.290
  • THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:10:26.000 --> 00:10:27.260
  • SO DO YOU GET THE CONCEPT?
  • 00:10:27.270 --> 00:10:29.120
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION DOESN'T HAPPEN AT A
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:31.100
  • SINGLE POINT IN TIME; INSTEAD IT'S A REFERENCE
  • 00:10:31.110 --> 00:10:33.290
  • TO ALL BELIEVERS WHO ALL WILL RECEIVE THEIR
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:37.280
  • RESURRECTION BODIES, BUT AT VARIOUS POINTS
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.130
  • IN HISTORY.
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:41.130
  • JOHN SAYS BLESSED IS THE PERSON WHO IS A PART OF
  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:45.060
  • THIS MILITARY PARADE, THIS HEAVENLY CARPOOL,
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:48.050
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION; OVER HIM THE SECOND DEATH
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:51.050
  • HAS NO POWER.
  • 00:10:51.060 --> 00:10:52.130
  • AND THEN NOTICE IN REVELATION 20:5 IT SAYS,
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.150
  • "THE REST OF THE DEAD DID NOT COME TO LIFE UNTIL
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:57.260
  • THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE COMPLETED."
  • 00:10:57.270 --> 00:11:00.050
  • WHO ARE THE REST OF THE DEAD?
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:01.290
  • IT IS THE UNSAVED WHO WILL BE RESURRECTED.
  • 00:11:02.000 --> 00:11:05.120
  • AND THAT LEADS TO WHAT IS ON YOUR CHART.
  • 00:11:05.130 --> 00:11:07.080
  • NUMBER TWO: THE SECOND RESURRECTION.
  • 00:11:07.090 --> 00:11:10.220
  • IT'S REFERRED TO IN REVELATION 20:13,
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:14.100
  • "AND THE SEA GAVE UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN IT,
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:17.260
  • AND DEATH AND HADES GAVE UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN THEM."
  • 00:11:17.270 --> 00:11:22.150
  • UNLIKE THE FIRST RESURRECTION THAT TAKES
  • 00:11:22.160 --> 00:11:24.200
  • PLACE OVER A PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:26.270
  • THE SECOND RESURRECTION OF THE UNSAVED OCCURS ALL
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:29.230
  • AT THE SAME POINT.
  • 00:11:29.240 --> 00:11:30.270
  • AND IT HAPPENS AFTER THE 1.000-YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:35.160
  • AND THE PURPOSE OF THE SECOND RESURRECTION IS TO
  • 00:11:35.170 --> 00:11:38.070
  • RAISE THE BODIES OF ALL UNBELIEVERS SO THEY CAN
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:41.070
  • EXPERIENCE THE FINAL JUDGMENT WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:43.160
  • ABOUT TODAY, THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:47.130
  • HOWEVER, JOHN SAYS BEFORE THAT FINAL JUDGMENT ONE
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:51.060
  • LAST THING HAS TO OCCUR.
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:53.110
  • AND HE DESCRIBES IT IN VERSES 7-9.
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:56.120
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE 1.000 YEARS?
  • 00:11:56.130 --> 00:11:58.120
  • THIS JUST ABSOLUTELY BLOWS MY MIND - GOD
  • 00:11:58.130 --> 00:12:01.210
  • CHOOSES TO LET SATAN GO, INSTEAD OF DROPPING HIM
  • 00:12:01.220 --> 00:12:05.250
  • INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:07.230
  • WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF SATAN'S RELEASE?
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:09.270
  • WHY DOES GOD CHOOSE TO LET HIM GO?
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:12.010
  • WELL IT SAYS IN THE TEXT HERE IN ORDER THAT HE
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:14.000
  • MIGHT DECEIVE THE NATIONS.
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:17.150
  • THAT IS, IN SPITE OF THE PREVIOUS 1.000 YEARS OF
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:21.040
  • THE PERFECT RULE OF JESUS ON THE THRONE IN
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:23.100
  • JERUSALEM, SOME PEOPLE AT THE FINAL MOMENT WHEN
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:26.230
  • GIVEN THE CHANCE WILL CHOOSE TO FOLLOW SATAN.
  • 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:31.100
  • NOW, OF COURSE, THAT BRINGS UP A NUMBER OF
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:33.110
  • QUESTIONS.
  • 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:34.240
  • WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE WHO DECIDE,
  • 00:12:34.250 --> 00:12:37.050
  • WHO HAVE SURVIVED THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:38.240
  • WHO HAVE LIVED UNDER THE PERFECT REIGN OF CHRIST,
  • 00:12:38.250 --> 00:12:40.190
  • WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE THAT WOULD CHOOSE TO FOLLOW
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:42.200
  • AFTER SATAN?
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.070
  • THE ONLY EXPLANATION IS THERE ARE CHRISTIANS WHO
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:47.280
  • ENTER THE MILLENNIUM IN THEIR NATURAL BODIES;
  • 00:12:47.290 --> 00:12:50.070
  • THEY WILL HAVE CHILDREN AND THOSE CHILDREN WILL
  • 00:12:50.080 --> 00:12:54.000
  • BE DECEIVED, SOME OF THEM BY SATAN.
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:56.250
  • YOU KNOW THAT'S AN AMAZING THING WHEN YOU
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.050
  • THINK ABOUT IT; AFTER LIVING UNDER THE RULE OF
  • 00:12:58.060 --> 00:13:01.200
  • CHRIST FOR 1.000 YEARS, HAVING EXPERIENCED THE
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:04.290
  • BLESSING OF CHRIST'S RULING SOME WILL BE
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:08.060
  • DECEIVED AND ACTUALLY CHOOSE TO FOLLOW SATAN.
  • 00:13:08.070 --> 00:13:11.230
  • BUT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FACT IS EVERY
  • 00:13:11.240 --> 00:13:14.160
  • BELIEVER HAS TO MAKE A CHOICE.
  • 00:13:14.170 --> 00:13:17.010
  • EVERY PERSON WHO'S EVER LIVED IN WHATEVER AGE HE
  • 00:13:17.020 --> 00:13:19.250
  • LIVED; STARTING IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN HAS HAD TO
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:22.050
  • MAKE AN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE RATHER TO FOLLOW GOD OR
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:25.160
  • FOLLOW SATAN.
  • 00:13:25.170 --> 00:13:26.260
  • AND SO THE BIBLE SAYS SATAN WILL BE RELEASED.
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:29.220
  • HE WILL DECEIVE SOME, BUT IT WON'T BE A DECEPTION
  • 00:13:29.230 --> 00:13:32.140
  • THAT WILL LAST FOR LONG BECAUSE IN
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:34.000
  • REVELATION 20:9 GOD SENDS A FIRE.
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:37.210
  • HE DEVOURS THOSE WHO HAVE OPPOSED HIM.
  • 00:13:37.220 --> 00:13:41.010
  • VERSE 10 SAYS HE THEN TAKES SATAN AND HE DROPS
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:44.110
  • HIM INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE WHERE THE BEAST AND THE
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:46.150
  • FALSE PROPHET ARE.
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:47.260
  • AND THAT PREPARES THE WAY FOR THIS JUDGMENT WE'RE
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:50.130
  • LOOKING AT - THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:53.050
  • TURN OVER TO REVELATION 20 BEGINNING WITH VERSE 11.
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:13:58.200
  • JOHN SAYS, "THEN I SAW A GREAT WHITE THRONE AND
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:03.030
  • HIM WHO SAT UPON IT, FROM WHOSE PRESENCE EARTH AND
  • 00:14:03.040 --> 00:14:07.000
  • HEAVEN FLED AWAY, AND NO PLACE WAS FOUND FOR THEM."
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:11.190
  • NOW NOTICE THIS IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM
  • 00:14:11.200 --> 00:14:13.230
  • THE PICTURE IN REVELATION 4:2 WHERE AT THE
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:16.090
  • BEGINNING OF THE TRIBULATION JOHN LOOKED
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:18.170
  • INTO HEAVEN AND HE SAW GOD THE FATHER ON A
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:20.220
  • THRONE SURROUNDED BY THE 24 ELDERS,
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:23.030
  • THE CHURCH, AND HE SAW THE RAINBOW SURROUNDING
  • 00:14:23.040 --> 00:14:25.110
  • THE THRONE IN PEALS OF LIGHTNING,
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:27.000
  • AND THE SOUNDS OF THUNDER. THAT'S NOT THIS PICTURE.
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:31.010
  • THIS PICTURE IS OF A SINGLE SOLITARY THRONE
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:34.000
  • AND IT HAS A DIFFERENT OCCUPANT ON IT.
  • 00:14:34.010 --> 00:14:36.140
  • THE OCCUPANT IS NOT GOD THE FATHER.
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:38.160
  • IT IS JESUS CHRIST, THE SON.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:41.110
  • GO BACK TO VERSES 12-13, "AND I SAW THE DEAD,
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:45.150
  • THE GREAT AND THE SMALL, STANDING BEFORE THE
  • 00:14:45.160 --> 00:14:47.190
  • THRONE, AND THE BOOKS (UNDERLINE THAT) WERE OPENED.
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:52.050
  • AND ANOTHER BOOK (SINGULAR - UNDERLINE THAT) WAS OPENED."
  • 00:14:52.060 --> 00:14:56.080
  • WHAT IS THAT BOOK?
  • 00:14:56.090 --> 00:14:57.100
  • IT IS THE BOOK OF LIFE, "AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:15:00.270
  • FROM THE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS."
  • 00:15:00.280 --> 00:15:03.130
  • PLURAL, NOT THE BOOK - THE BOOK OF LIFE - THEY
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:07.070
  • WERE JUDGED BY THE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE
  • 00:15:07.080 --> 00:15:09.090
  • BOOKS, "ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS.
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:12.110
  • AND THE SEA GAVE UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN IT,
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:14.080
  • AND DEATH AND HADES GAVE UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:16.080
  • THEM; AND THEY WERE JUDGED,
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:17.250
  • EVERY ONE OF THEM ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS (THEIR WORKS)."
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:25.010
  • DID YOU KNOW GOD KEEPS TWO SETS OF BOOKS ON ALL OF US?
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:29.050
  • THERE IS THE BOOK, AND THERE ARE THE BOOKS.
  • 00:15:29.060 --> 00:15:33.160
  • THE BOOK IS WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:37.160
  • THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE, EVERY NAME IN IT IS A RECORD OF
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:42.230
  • EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN SAVED OR WILL BE
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:44.170
  • SAVED; AND UNLESS YOUR NAME IS WRITTEN IN THAT
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:48.100
  • LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE YOU WILL NOT ESCAPE THE GREAT
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:52.020
  • WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:52.030 --> 00:15:53.210
  • THERE IS THE BOOK, BUT THEN THERE ARE THE BOOKS.
  • 00:15:53.220 --> 00:15:58.250
  • THAT IS, GOD KEEPS A BOOK,
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:00.250
  • A RECORD OF EVERY PERSON'S,
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:02.240
  • BELIEVER AND UNBELIEVER'S WORKS,
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:05.190
  • NO GOOD DEED GOES UNRECORDED,
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:07.130
  • NO SIN GOES UNNOTICED - IT IS ALL IN THE BOOKS.
  • 00:16:07.140 --> 00:16:13.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE UNSAVED ARE JUDGED
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:17.120
  • ACCORDING TO THE BOOKS; ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS;
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:20.220
  • ACCORDING TO THE THINGS THAT HAD BEEN WRITTEN IN
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:23.060
  • THIS BOOK.
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:24.180
  • AFTER THE UNBELIEVER GETS OVER THE INITIAL SHOCK OF
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:27.210
  • SEEING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHOM HE REJECTED
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:31.000
  • SITTING ON THAT GREAT WHITE THRONE,
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:33.220
  • AFTER THAT INITIAL SHOCK, THE UNBELIEVER WILL
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:36.060
  • ACTUALLY START TO FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT AS HE
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:39.030
  • HEARS JESUS ANNOUNCE
  • 00:16:39.040 --> 00:16:40.270
  • THE BASIS ON WHICH HE'S GOING TO BE JUDGED.
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:44.020
  • AS JESUS BEGINS TO OPEN THE BOOKS AND SAYS:
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:46.210
  • I WILL JUDGE YOU AS YOU'VE CHOSEN TO BE JUDGED,
  • 00:16:46.220 --> 00:16:49.190
  • ACCORDING TO YOUR DEEDS, ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS.
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:54.070
  • BUT THAT OPTIMISM, THAT CONFIDENCE WILL TURN TO
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:57.020
  • DESPAIR VERY, VERY QUICKLY AS THE UNBELIEVER
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:17:00.210
  • REALIZES THAT THE BASIS, THE STANDARD BY WHICH HIS
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:05.090
  • WORKS WILL BE JUDGED WILL NOT BE HIS
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:07.260
  • RELATIVE RIGHTEOUSNESS TO OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:11.130
  • BUT BY THE PERFECTION OF GOD'S OWN SON,
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:13.200
  • THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:17:13.210 --> 00:17:15.190
  • SEE, MOST OF US,
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:16.240
  • WE JUDGE OURSELVES ACCORDING TO OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:18.130
  • WE SAY: WELL, I MAY NOT BE PERFECT, BUT I PAY MY TAXES.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:21.060
  • I DON'T CHEAT ON MY MATE.
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:22.200
  • I'M CERTAINLY BETTER THAN OSAMA BIN LADEN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:25.170
  • SO I OUGHT TO DO PRETTY GOOD.
  • 00:17:25.180 --> 00:17:27.200
  • I OUGHT TO MAKE IT INTO THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:29.090
  • BUT GOD SAYS: NO; THE BASIS BY WHICH I JUDGE EVERY MAN
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:33.250
  • IS NOT HIS RELATIVE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:35.210
  • COMPARED TO OTHERS,
  • 00:17:35.220 --> 00:17:36.270
  • BUT BY THE PERFECTION OF MY SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:39.230
  • AND BY THAT STANDARD EVERYONE FALLS SHORT.
  • 00:17:39.240 --> 00:17:43.240
  • WHAT HAPPENS AS A RESULT OF THE WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT?
  • 00:17:43.250 --> 00:17:46.140
  • LOOK AT VERSES 14-15, "THEN DEATH AND HADES,"
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:49.220
  • THAT IS UNBELIEVERS, "WERE THROWN INTO THE
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:52.160
  • LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:54.000
  • THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH, THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:57.080
  • AND IF ANY MAN'S NAME WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:59.290
  • BOOK OF LIFE, HE WAS THROWN INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:05.060
  • BOOK OF LIFE, HE WAS THROWN INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:08.120
  • HE ISN'T ANNIHILATED, HE DOESN'T CEASE TO EXIST;
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:11.140
  • HE SUFFERS, HE IS TORMENTED WITH
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:14.240
  • INDESCRIBABLE SUFFERING DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND
  • 00:18:14.250 --> 00:18:20.210
  • EVER - REVELATION 20:10.
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:22.190
  • THERE WILL NOT BE ONE OCCUPANT IN THE LAKE OF
  • 00:18:24.150 --> 00:18:26.000
  • FIRE WHO IS NOT THERE BY HIS OWN CHOICE.
  • 00:18:26.010 --> 00:18:30.150
  • THE UNBELIEVER IS THE PERSON WHO HAS SAID
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:32.200
  • TO GOD: WHATEVER JESUS CHRIST DID
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:36.190
  • MEANS NOTHING TO ME.
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:39.070
  • I DON'T NEED HIS DEATH.
  • 00:18:39.080 --> 00:18:40.260
  • I DON'T NEED HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:42.210
  • I'M HAPPY TO BE JUDGED BY YOU ACCORDING
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:45.050
  • TO MY OWN MERITS.
  • 00:18:45.060 --> 00:18:46.080
  • AND GOD SAYS: FINE, I'LL GIVE YOU EXACTLY
  • 00:18:46.090 --> 00:18:48.110
  • WHAT YOU WISH.
  • 00:18:48.120 --> 00:18:49.230
  • WE'LL JUDGE YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS.
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:54.010
  • BUT NOBODY'S WORKS WILL BE GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:58.040
  • FOR YOU SEE, THE BIBLE SAYS UNLESS WE HAVE A
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:19:00.180
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT EQUALS THAT OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:04.100
  • HIMSELF, NONE OF US QUALIFIED TO ENTER
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:06.180
  • INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:07.260
  • YOU SAY: WELL, THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:10.040
  • NOBODY COULD EVER MEET THAT STANDARD,
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:12.180
  • THE PERFECTION OF JESUS CHRIST;
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:14.100
  • NOBODY COULD EVER MEET THAT STANDARD.
  • 00:19:14.110 --> 00:19:16.260
  • EXACTLY.
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:18.220
  • EXACTLY.
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:20.060
  • AND THAT'S WHY THE ONLY WAY WE'LL EVER BE
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:23.010
  • QUALIFIED TO ENTER INTO HEAVEN IS NOT ON THE
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:25.210
  • BASIS OF OUR GOODNESS, BUT ON THE BASIS OF THE
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:28.200
  • GOODNESS, THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:19:28.210 --> 00:19:30.240
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:33.110
  • I KNOW I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE,
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:38.230
  • BUT I THINK RIGHT NOW IS A HELPFUL TIME TO
  • 00:19:38.240 --> 00:19:41.210
  • ILLUSTRATE EXACTLY WHAT THAT MEANS,
  • 00:19:41.220 --> 00:19:44.010
  • THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:19:44.020 --> 00:19:46.090
  • AND WHAT IT MEANS TO PUT THAT ON.
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:48.080
  • I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE HERE TWO BOOKS.
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:52.150
  • ONE BOOK IS TITLED "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JESUS CHRIST."
  • 00:19:52.160 --> 00:19:57.000
  • THIS IS A BOOK THAT RECORDS EVERY GOOD DEED,
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:59.290
  • EVERY PERFECT THING THAT JESUS CHRIST HAS EVER
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:02.240
  • DONE - HIS COMPLETE RECORD OF ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:08.030
  • "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JESUS CHRIST."
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:10.150
  • NOW I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE ANOTHER BOOK TITLED
  • 00:20:10.260 --> 00:20:12.280
  • "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ROBERT JEFFRESS."
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:15.210
  • IT IS A BOOK THAT RECORDS SOME OF THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:21.090
  • I'VE DONE, BUT IT ALSO DESCRIBES EVERY WRONG
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:25.090
  • ACTION, EVERY WRONG THOUGHT,
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:28.050
  • EVERY WRONG MOTIVATION FOR DOING ANYTHING
  • 00:20:28.060 --> 00:20:30.130
  • I'VE EVER HAD.
  • 00:20:30.140 --> 00:20:32.050
  • THIS BOOK READS LIKE A SUPERMARKET TABLOID.
  • 00:20:32.060 --> 00:20:35.160
  • IT'S A BOOK I HOPE NOBODY WILL PURCHASE.
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:38.040
  • TWO BOOKS: "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JESUS CHRIST."
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:41.190
  • "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ROBERT JEFFRESS."
  • 00:20:41.200 --> 00:20:43.160
  • NOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I TRUST IN CHRIST
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:46.090
  • AS MY SAVIOR?
  • 00:20:46.100 --> 00:20:47.260
  • KNOW WHAT GOD DOES?
  • 00:20:47.270 --> 00:20:49.130
  • HE TAKES THE COVER OF THIS BOOK,
  • 00:20:49.140 --> 00:20:51.280
  • AND HE PLACES IT ON THIS BOOK CONTAINING JESUS'
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:55.010
  • GOOD DEEDS.
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:57.050
  • AND SO WHEN GOD LOOKS AT "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF
  • 00:20:57.060 --> 00:21:00.210
  • ROBERT JEFFRESS" HE NO LONGER SEES MY SIN,
  • 00:21:00.220 --> 00:21:03.130
  • HE SEES ALL OF THE GOOD THINGS THAT JESUS DID,
  • 00:21:03.140 --> 00:21:07.170
  • AND HE GIVES ME CREDIT FOR HIS RIGHTEOUS LIFE.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:10.270
  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE THAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:21:10.280 --> 00:21:13.000
  • WHEN I TRUST IN CHRIST AS MY SAVIOR,
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:14.290
  • GOD TAKES THE COVER OF THIS BOOK,
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:17.170
  • "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JESUS" AND HE PLACES IT
  • 00:21:17.180 --> 00:21:20.100
  • AROUND MY LIFE STORY.
  • 00:21:20.110 --> 00:21:23.060
  • TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO WHEN GOD LOOKED DOWN ON
  • 00:21:23.070 --> 00:21:26.010
  • JESUS ON THE CROSS HE SAW MY SIN,
  • 00:21:26.020 --> 00:21:31.010
  • HE SAW YOUR SIN AND HE JUDGED JESUS FOR WHAT
  • 00:21:31.020 --> 00:21:35.180
  • WE HAVE DONE.
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:38.060
  • IT'S THE GREATEST EXCHANGE THAT HAS EVER
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:40.170
  • TAKEN PLACE WHEN WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:21:40.180 --> 00:21:44.040
  • I TAKE MY SINFULNESS AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:47.110
  • AND GIVE IT TO JESUS CHRIST TO SUFFER FOR,
  • 00:21:47.120 --> 00:21:50.250
  • AND HE TAKES HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HE
  • 00:21:50.260 --> 00:21:53.130
  • CREDITS IT TO MY ACCOUNT SO THAT I SPEND ETERNITY
  • 00:21:53.140 --> 00:21:57.100
  • BENEFITING FROM THE PERFECT LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 00:21:57.110 --> 00:22:00.030
  • SECOND CORINTHIANS 5:21 SAYS IT THIS WAY,
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:02.250
  • "GOD MADE HIM, JESUS, WHO KNEW NO SIN TO BECOME SIN
  • 00:22:02.260 --> 00:22:08.280
  • FOR US THAT WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:22:08.290 --> 00:22:12.000
  • OF GOD IN HIM."
  • 00:22:12.010 --> 00:22:14.100
  • THE MOST IMPORTANT CHOICE YOU EVER MAKE IN LIFE IS
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.260
  • THIS, WHAT AM I DEPENDING UPON TO GET ME INTO
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:22.030
  • HEAVEN ONE DAY?
  • 00:22:22.040 --> 00:22:24.050
  • AM I GOING TO DEPEND UPON MY RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:22:24.060 --> 00:22:27.080
  • OR AM I GOING TO CHOOSE TO DEPEND UPON THE
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:29.040
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:31.140
  • AND THE PERFECT LIFE HE LED?
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:33.220
  • YOU SEE, IT'S ONE OR THE OTHER.
  • 00:22:33.230 --> 00:22:35.140
  • EITHER YOU'RE DEPENDING ON YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS OR
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:38.190
  • YOU'RE DEPENDING COMPLETELY ON THE
  • 00:22:38.200 --> 00:22:40.000
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST.
  • 00:22:40.010 --> 00:22:41.190
  • IT'S ONE OF THE OTHER.
  • 00:22:41.200 --> 00:22:43.000
  • IT CAN'T BE BOTH.
  • 00:22:43.010 --> 00:22:45.090
  • AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT CHOICE OF WHAT
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:47.120
  • YOU'RE DEPENDING ON TO GET INTO HEAVEN IS A
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:50.090
  • CHOICE YOU HAVE TO MAKE RIGHT NOW IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:22:50.100 --> 00:22:53.150
  • IF YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU DIE TO MAKE THAT CHOICE,
  • 00:22:53.160 --> 00:22:55.260
  • YOU'VE WAITED TOO LONG.
  • 00:22:55.270 --> 00:22:58.070
  • IF YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU DIE TO CALL ON THE NAME OF
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.280
  • CHRIST FOR SALVATION, THERE IS NO SALVATION.
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:05.050
  • IF YOU FIND YOURSELF STANDING BEFORE THAT
  • 00:23:05.060 --> 00:23:07.120
  • GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT IT'S TOO LATE.
  • 00:23:07.130 --> 00:23:12.290
  • YOU MUST CHOOSE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:16.080
  • NOW TO ESCAPE THAT FINAL WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:23:16.090 --> 00:23:22.140
  • MUSIC
  • 00:23:22.150 --> 00:23:30.060
