The Judgement

Scales and books

The day of the judgement of the Lord will be an awful day for those who have rejected the love of Christ, however all those who have accepted the death of His Son and accepted His righteousness by faith shall be able to stand in the judgement. 

"And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel, saying rise and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. Rev 11:1
And He that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. Rev.21:15.

I lifted up my eyes again, and looked and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. Then said I, whither goest thou?  And he said unto me, to measure Jerusalem, to see what the breadth thereof is.  Zechariah 2:1-2.

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. 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. Rev.20:12-13

 For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1Peter 4:17

 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fail: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:10-11."

The great judgement is taking place. The Lord says measure the temple and worshipers. So remember when you are walking the streets or going about your business, God is measuring you, when you are attending to your household chores, when you engage in conversation. Remember that your words and actions are being recorded in the books of heaven.

Here the work of judgement is going on, as Christ measures the temple and the worshipers to see who will be able to stand in these last days. Those who are faithful to him, those who heed his warning and repent of their sins will have a place in the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

When we are doing our work let us remember there is One that is watching the spirit in which we are doing it. therefoe our attitude should be right, for the Scripture says whatsoever our hands find to do we should do it well.

Let us leave behind all that is not necessary, all gossiping, or unprofitable things that will hinder us and prevent us from obtaining the kingdom. Let us present ourselves as servants of the living God.
