At Christ's Judgment Seat for His redeemed saints, which will take place after the Rapture of His Church; The blood-washed saints of Christ will be examined and proved by Almighty God the Son's RIGHTEOUS PERSON, PERFECTION, and HOLY FIRE (Psalm 12:6; 18:30; 19:8-10; John 1:1-3; John 17:17, 1 Cor. 3:9-16, Heb. 12:28-29, Rev. 1:12-18; 22:12)! ALL that was built upon this FOUNDATION (THE ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS SON of ALMIGHTY GOD) will remain and rewards will be given (Matt. 7:24-25, John 17:17, 1 Cor. 3:9-16, Rev. 22:12)! All that is outworked in the flesh and in error will be TOTALLY CONSUMED by Christ's RIGHTEOUS Person and FIRE, and these will suffer loss, but NOT the loss of one's ETERNAL salvation (Rom. 8:26-39; 1 Cor. 3:9-16)! For the RIGHTEOUS FOUNDATION, BLUEPRINT, OUTWORKING, WORKS, FRUIT, BUILDING and PRODUCT in a child of GOD's life IS NOTHING LESS THAN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! For He is ALL and ALL in RIGHTEOUSNESS, TRUTH, ABSOLUTES, ATTRIBUTES, LIFE and FRUIT and without Him, nothing can ever EXIST, be ACHIEVED and have LIFE (Psalm 1:1-3, John 1:1-14; 10:25; 14:1-3, Gal. 2:20; 5:22-23; Heb. 1:2-3; 4:12-13; 13:8, 1 Peter 2:1-8, Rev. 1:11-18; 4; 21:22-23; 22:13)!
We are to be the Lord Jesus Christ's co-labors, servants (slaves), joint-heirs, sheep, vessels, body, branches, fragrance of LIFE, waterers, overcoming victors and more than conquerors, priest, and kings, workmanship, billboards, soldiers, bride, witnesses, salt, sent ones, ambassadors, prayer warriors, disciples, fishermen, ministers of reconciliation and lights; and we are to build as we serve our RIGHTEOUS Savior in love very wisely and circumspectly; with spiritual knowledge for His glory and honor!
We are to be the Lord Jesus Christ's co-labors, servants (slaves), joint-heirs, sheep, vessels, workmanship, body, branches, fragrance of LIFE, waterers, overcoming victors and more than conquerors, priest, and kings, soldiers, salt, billboards, witnesses, sent ones, prayer warriors, ambassadors, disciples, bride, fishermen, ministers of reconciliation and lights; and we are to build as we serve our RIGHTEOUS Savior in love very wisely and circumspectly; with spiritual knowledge for His glory and honor (1 Cor. 10:31)! Beloved, He is our ONLY GREAT TREASURE and He is our EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD; for HE is our LIFE (Matt. 6:21, John 14:6, Gal. 2:20; 5:22-23; Col. 3:1-3)!
To sum up the Bema Seat judgment in one sentence would be to say of Almighty God our Father, "Did I find my Son OUTWORKED, EXPRESSED and MANIFESTED in you in TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS and FRUIT/PRODUCT - Rom. 8:28-29, Gal. 2:20, Eph. 2:10, Phil. 2:12-13!"
When we serve Him and love Him in that way in RIGHTNESS and ALL SINCERITY, we already possess, demonstrate and make known to all Who our EXCEEDINGLY GREAT TREASURE and REWARD is (Gen. 15:1, Psalm 119, Phil. 3:8-10; 2 Tim. 4:8, 1 John 3:1-3; 4:10, 19)! Thus will the rewards of the saints be after the Bema Seat of Jesus concludes! The works (GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES); which remain after the FIRE TEST of Christ's RIGHTEOUS Person; will be the EXPRESSED LIFE of Jesus Christ the RIGHTEOUS outworked in us! For the FOUNDATION, FORMULAS of RIGHTEOUSNESS, FIRE, GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES are the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS PERSON of JESUS CHRIST! Dearly beloved, IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS from ETERNITY past into ETERNITY future! Who can conceive such a WONDER! Glory to ALMIGHTY GOD in the HIGHEST FOREVERMORE and EVERMORE!!
Beloved, He is our ONLY GREAT TREASURE and He is our EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD for HE is our LIFE!; and when we serve Him and love Him in that way in RIGHTNESS and ALL SINCERITY, we already possess, demonstrate and make known to all Who our EXCEEDINGLY GREAT TREASURE and REWARD is!
Beloved, it is tragic to say, and may Almighty God help us all; that many will be ashamed in His Presence on that day. For many will have NEGLECTED their Heavenly calling for the temporal delights and comforts that this fallen world and America has to offer, and many will build wrongly in unrighteousness and in ignorance. These will be saved by FIRE but with nothing to show for God's glory (1 Cor. 3:12-18). The thought will be in that day, how much did you really love Me and enjoy me for Who I am?
Going for the Gold for Almighty God's Glory! . Dear friends, ETERNAL victory is gained when a person puts his or her faith and trust in the Person of Almighty God (John 8:32-36, Rom. 8:35-39; Heb. 11:6, 1 John 5:1-5)! As believers in Jesus Christ, we can by faith go for the gold and win the victory through the many-faceted adversities and calamities that come our way. We know that Almighty God our Father indeed loves us and has a wonderful plan and purpose for our lives in this age to make us GREAT winners for His glory and not losers.
Listen to this promise: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:26).
Almighty God has a wonderful plan for you and me and wants us to overcome in His PERFECT WILL for our lives and be a winner for His glory (1 Cor. 10:31)! It is through Him and by Him we will have the victory!; For He indeed is our VICTORY!
Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings - Col 3:1-5, Eph 1:3)!
In these last days may we be strong and of good courage and have faith in Almighty God. May we see - with the eyes of faith - past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a conqueror in Christ and for Christ. May we go for all that Almighty God has called us to be for His Glory.
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Phil. 4:13)!
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses" (1Tim 6:12)!
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14)!
"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 15:57)!
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us" (Romans 8:37)!
"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Cor.10:31)!
"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Cor. 1:20)!
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9)!
"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing" (2 Tim 4:8)!
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14).
Remember, Beloved: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world [i.e., Satan and his minions]" (1 John 4:4).
Thank you so much!
Holy Holy Holy
However, contrary to promising eternal life based on simply a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus to save them, as if this was abstract from the fuller dimension of who Christ is and represents, salvation is promised to those who believe on the Lord Jesus, who saves those who are of penitent faith and which effects characteristic obedience to Him. Which includes repentance when one is convicted of the lack of it.
For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. (Hebrews 6:7-9)
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? (2 Corinthians 13:5)
Therefore Scripture warns believers as believers against having an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God, drawing back unto perdition, back into bondage, making Christ of no effect, to no profit, falling from grace, etc., (Hebrews 3:12; Hebrews 10:38,39; Galatians 5:1-5) thus forfeiting what faith appropriated .
But God "plays for keeps," and works to bring repentance via chastisement so that we will not be "condemned with the rest of the world." (1 Cor. 11:32) Thanks be to God.
Thus the exhortations "Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness.... For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; (Hebrews 3:8,14)
It’s amazing what we can pour out of a blender after tossing a bible into it!
