  • The Father Himself -- Himself, will reward you.
  • 00:00:02.190 --> 00:00:07.200
  • Did you know that the Father is going to give rewards
  • 00:00:07.230 --> 00:00:12.030
  • to you personally?
  • 00:00:12.060 --> 00:00:14.050
  • 00:00:14.080 --> 00:00:28.090
  • PASTOR ROBERT: We're in a series
  • 00:00:28.120 --> 00:00:29.090
  • called, "The End... What Happens Next?"
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:34.150
  • And we've talked about heaven, and hell,
  • 00:00:34.180 --> 00:00:36.210
  • and remember, the first week, we talked about
  • 00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:38.250
  • a tough question, and we talked about some easy questions then
  • 00:00:38.280 --> 00:00:42.070
  • about heaven.
  • 00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:43.070
  • Last week, we talked about a tough message.
  • 00:00:43.100 --> 00:00:45.290
  • And this week, I'm going to share with you on,
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:48.080
  • "A Tough Day."
  • 00:00:48.110 --> 00:00:50.100
  • "A Tough Day."
  • 00:00:50.130 --> 00:00:51.260
  • Now, we're gonna get to 1 Corinthians 3, okay,
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:54.180
  • but it's a little bit later.
  • 00:00:54.210 --> 00:00:56.050
  • I want to read you some verses before we get there, all right?
  • 00:00:56.080 --> 00:01:00.060
  • And we'll put all of these verses on the screen.
  • 00:01:00.090 --> 00:01:02.240
  • 2 Peter 2:9 says, "The Lord knows how to deliver the godly
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:07.120
  • out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust
  • 00:01:07.150 --> 00:01:11.100
  • under punishment for the day of judgment."
  • 00:01:11.130 --> 00:01:16.130
  • 2 Peter 3:7 says, "But the heavens and the earth,
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:19.090
  • which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:22.260
  • for fire until the day of judgment and perdition",
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:28.140
  • which means eternal judgment, "of ungodly men."
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:31.210
  • Matthew 12:36, "But I say to you that for every idle word
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:35.270
  • men may speak, they will give account of it
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:39.140
  • in the day of judgment."
  • 00:01:39.170 --> 00:01:42.220
  • And Hebrews 9:27 says, "It is appointed for men
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:45.160
  • to die once, but after this, the judgment."
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:50.170
  • So, is there a judgment day coming?
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:56.030
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.140
  • Will everyone be judged?
  • 00:01:57.170 --> 00:02:01.030
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:01.060 --> 00:02:02.090
  • Will believers be judged?
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:04.120
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:05.100
  • Will unbelievers be judged?
  • 00:02:05.130 --> 00:02:07.180
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:07.210 --> 00:02:08.220
  • But, will we be judged by grace or works?
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:14.230
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:02:14.260 --> 00:02:16.280
  • Yes.
  • 00:02:17.010 --> 00:02:19.000
  • Now, listen.
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.040
  • I am not saying that salvation is grace and works,
  • 00:02:20.070 --> 00:02:23.260
  • but there is a believer's judgment and there
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:26.020
  • is an unbeliever's judgment.
  • 00:02:26.050 --> 00:02:28.010
  • But at both judgments, works are judged.
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:31.130
  • Let me show you a few other Scriptures, all right?
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:34.270
  • Ecclesiastes 12:14, "For God will bring every work."
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:40.120
  • Would you mind saying the word, "every"?
  • 00:02:40.150 --> 00:02:42.280
  • "Every work into judgment, including every",
  • 00:02:43.010 --> 00:02:47.200
  • would you say it again?
  • 00:02:47.230 --> 00:02:49.230
  • "Every secret thing, whether good or evil."
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:54.260
  • You can groan now.
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:58.030
  • Okay, you didn't groan!
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.030
  • I guess you're okay with it, all right?
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:01.150
  • Matthew 16:27, "For the Son of Man will come in the glory
  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:05.040
  • of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each",
  • 00:03:05.070 --> 00:03:09.260
  • say the word, "each", "according to his works."
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:14.170
  • Revelation 22:12, "And behold, I am coming quickly,
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:17.160
  • and My reward is with Me, to give to every",
  • 00:03:17.190 --> 00:03:21.040
  • would you say the word, "every"?
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:23.020
  • "Every one according to his work."
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:26.020
  • Okay.
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:26.280
  • I am an each.
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:30.020
  • You are an each.
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:32.140
  • We are every.
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:34.010
  • God is going to reward each and every one, and judge each
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:38.180
  • and every person, according to his works.
  • 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:43.210
  • But, are we saved by works?
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:45.130
  • Not at all.
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:46.170
  • Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace you have been saved
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:50.020
  • through faith, that not of yourselves.
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:52.110
  • It is the gift of God," would you say these
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:54.190
  • three words with me?
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:55.220
  • "Not of works."
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:58.020
  • Can you say it one more time?
  • 00:03:58.050 --> 00:03:59.120
  • "Not of works, lest anyone should boast."
  • 00:03:59.150 --> 00:04:03.180
  • Okay, so how do we explain this?
  • 00:04:03.210 --> 00:04:06.010
  • How do we explain that we're saved by grace,
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:09.110
  • but judged by works, according to our works?
  • 00:04:09.140 --> 00:04:14.140
  • I'm going to give you the most simple way
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:19.070
  • to understand this huge theological, doctrinal issue.
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:25.230
  • I'm gonna give you a very simple way.
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:27.030
  • It's two words.
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:28.120
  • We have to learn to determine and distinguish
  • 00:04:28.150 --> 00:04:31.180
  • between our, are you ready?
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.110
  • Here are the two words, belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:37.280
  • Belief and behavior.
  • 00:04:38.010 --> 00:04:41.290
  • Our belief determines, and you may want to write
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:44.090
  • this statement down.
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.150
  • Our belief determines where we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:50.120
  • Our behavior determines how we spend eternity.
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:56.020
  • Let me say it again.
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.070
  • Our belief alone determines where we spend eternity,
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:05:03.000
  • and our behavior determines how we spend eternity,
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:06.040
  • whether heaven or hell.
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:07.200
  • In heaven, we're going to be rewarded for our works,
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:11.130
  • and in hell, people are going to be punished for their works.
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:15.190
  • But, depending on where you go is completely dependent upon
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:20.020
  • whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not,
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:22.050
  • and the Bible is so clear about this.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:25.140
  • There are two judgments, and I'm going to talk about each
  • 00:05:25.170 --> 00:05:28.060
  • of these two judgments today.
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:30.160
  • There are two judgments, the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:33.100
  • and the Great White Throne Judgment.
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:35.070
  • At the Judgment Seat of Christ, every person there
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:40.100
  • is a believer.
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:42.060
  • Every person is a believer.
  • 00:05:42.090 --> 00:05:44.070
  • At the Great White Throne Judgment,
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:46.140
  • every person is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:49.050
  • Every person at that judgment is an unbeliever.
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:51.140
  • This is why people don't understand.
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.050
  • Well, why are you even gonna have a judgment if every person
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:55.180
  • there at the Great White Throne
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.230
  • is an unbeliever and is going to go to hell, and why would you
  • 00:05:57.260 --> 00:06:00.130
  • have a judgment if every person at the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:02.260
  • is a believer and is gonna go to heaven?
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.110
  • The reason is because this judgment is not
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:06.150
  • to determine your belief.
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.030
  • Your belief has already determined which judgment
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:10.270
  • you're going to attend.
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:13.190
  • But at that judgment, at each judgment,
  • 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:16.070
  • your behavior will be judged.
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:18.160
  • Here's what I'm trying to tell you.
  • 00:06:18.190 --> 00:06:19.220
  • It matters how you live.
  • 00:06:19.250 --> 00:06:23.070
  • It matters what you do on this earth.
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:25.250
  • And according to Scripture, if you believe,
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:28.200
  • it will alter your behavior.
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:31.120
  • God's grace, God's unmerited favor, gives us the desire
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:36.270
  • and the power to want to serve God.
  • 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:40.010
  • So, let's talk about these two judgments, all right?
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:43.070
  • We are not saved by works, but works do matter.
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:47.040
  • By the way, let me say this.
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:48.140
  • This is why people who understand grace get upset
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:52.240
  • when people talk in the wrong way about works,
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:56.120
  • and this is why people who understand that our behavior
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:59.190
  • matters get upset when people talk about grace
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:03.220
  • sometimes and don't talk about behavior.
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:06.050
  • This is why.
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:07.040
  • But the two can marry.
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:08.240
  • They are married in Scripture and it's easy
  • 00:07:08.270 --> 00:07:10.150
  • to understand when you separate belief and behavior,
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:14.030
  • when you understand what each of them are for.
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:15.140
  • All right, so here's the first judgment,
  • 00:07:15.170 --> 00:07:17.200
  • the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:19.270
  • Number one, the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:22.170
  • Now, are you in 1 Corinthians 3?
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:24.190
  • It says, "According to the grace of God which was given
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:27.100
  • to me, as a wise master builder I have laid
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:30.280
  • the foundation, and another builds on it."
  • 00:07:31.010 --> 00:07:34.060
  • He's referring to Apollos here.
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:35.280
  • "But let each one", and I'm not gonna ask you to repeat it,
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:38.230
  • but I want you to think about it every time I say it.
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:41.070
  • "Let each one take heed how he builds on it."
  • 00:07:41.100 --> 00:07:45.180
  • In other words, how he builds on the foundation of Jesus.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:48.030
  • "For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:51.130
  • is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:54.270
  • Now if anyone", anyone, that includes us,
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:58.200
  • "builds on this foundation", Jesus, these are believers,
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:02.140
  • "with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:08.160
  • each one's work will become clear for the Day", capitalized,
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:14.210
  • Judgement Day, "will declare it, because it will be
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:17.220
  • revealed by fire, and the fire will test each one's work,
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:23.010
  • of what sort it is.
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:24.180
  • If anyone's work which he has built on it endures,
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:28.180
  • he will receive a reward."
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:31.080
  • You're gonna be rewarded for your works.
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:33.130
  • Verse 15, watch.
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:35.000
  • "If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss."
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:39.060
  • He's gonna lose his reward.
  • 00:08:39.090 --> 00:08:40.210
  • "But he himself will be saved."
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:44.020
  • These are all believers.
  • 00:08:44.050 --> 00:08:45.170
  • "Yet so as through fire."
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:47.270
  • Okay, I want you to notice a couple of things about this.
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:49.290
  • You can be a believer and be building with wood,
  • 00:08:50.020 --> 00:08:53.270
  • hay, and straw.
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:56.030
  • You can be a believer and build with gold, silver,
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:08:58.280
  • and precious stones.
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:00.080
  • In other words, you can be a believer and be doing works
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:04.040
  • that will last forever, and that will be eternal,
  • 00:09:04.070 --> 00:09:06.170
  • and that you will be rewarded for.
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:08.100
  • But, you can also be a believer and be doing temporal
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:10.190
  • things that you will not receive a reward for.
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:13.200
  • Or, you could actually do something that's eternal,
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:17.160
  • and because of the way you do it, you could lose your
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:19.220
  • reward for it.
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:21.010
  • Now, we're not talking about going to heaven or hell, okay?
  • 00:09:21.040 --> 00:09:22.280
  • Remember that.
  • 00:09:23.010 --> 00:09:24.030
  • Let me just show you how Jesus Himself said you could
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:26.260
  • lose a reward for a good work.
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:30.200
  • You've read this before, maybe you've never tied it in.
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:33.130
  • Matthew 6:1, "Take heed that you do not do your
  • 00:09:33.160 --> 00:09:36.160
  • charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:40.270
  • Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:46.210
  • Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:49.010
  • a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:51.210
  • in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have
  • 00:09:51.240 --> 00:09:54.060
  • glory for men.
  • 00:09:54.090 --> 00:09:55.230
  • Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward on earth.
  • 00:09:55.260 --> 00:10:00.070
  • But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:02.220
  • know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:04.290
  • deed may be in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret,
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:10.180
  • will", watch this word, "Himself reward you openly."
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:16.280
  • Now, I want you to notice, first of all, you can do
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:18.240
  • something good and actually lose the reward for it
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:21.090
  • because of the way you do it.
  • 00:10:21.120 --> 00:10:22.280
  • But, notice this.
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:24.160
  • The Father Himself, Himself, will reward you!
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:30.030
  • Did you know the Father is going to give rewards
  • 00:10:30.060 --> 00:10:34.140
  • to you personally?
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:37.200
  • Personally!
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:38.260
  • It's not gonna be, like a billion people, you know,
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:42.040
  • there's gonna be like a billion people out there,
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:45.010
  • and the Father's gonna walk out and say, "Y'all done good!"
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:49.290
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:53.020
  • And of course, someone in the back's gonna say,
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.120
  • "What'd He say?"
  • 00:10:54.150 --> 00:10:56.190
  • And I'll say, "They said they need more wood!"
  • 00:10:56.220 --> 00:10:58.280
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:01.110
  • That's not gonna be that way!
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:05.060
  • Let me show you another Scripture.
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:06.160
  • 1 John 2:28 says, "And now, little children, abide in Him",
  • 00:11:06.190 --> 00:11:10.110
  • abide in Him, "that when He appears, we may have
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:15.120
  • confidence", watch this, "and not be ashamed before
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:20.020
  • Him at His coming."
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:21.070
  • Now, this is talking to believers!
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:23.020
  • Why would you be ashamed?
  • 00:11:23.050 --> 00:11:24.050
  • Let me tell you why some believers will be ashamed
  • 00:11:24.080 --> 00:11:25.200
  • at the second coming, because they wasted their life.
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:29.030
  • They believed in Jesus, but they didn't serve Him,
  • 00:11:29.060 --> 00:11:32.190
  • they didn't love Him, they didn't walk with Him.
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:34.270
  • They didn't give their lives for the kingdom of God,
  • 00:11:35.000 --> 00:11:38.020
  • and now it's over, and they're not gonna receive many rewards.
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:42.020
  • Did you know that, do you realize, heaven's gonna
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:44.020
  • be cities?
  • 00:11:44.050 --> 00:11:45.150
  • Heaven's gonna be cities.
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:47.000
  • And in Luke 19, Jesus says, "To the good steward",
  • 00:11:47.030 --> 00:11:50.090
  • He's gonna say to one of 'em, "you be ruler over ten cities."
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:57.060
  • In other words, we're gonna have a responsibility
  • 00:11:57.090 --> 00:11:58.210
  • in heaven.
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:11:59.170
  • Jesus told us to store up treasure.
  • 00:11:59.200 --> 00:12:02.140
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:03.150
  • He said, "Store up treasure for yourselves",
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:06.260
  • for yourselves, "in heaven."
  • 00:12:06.290 --> 00:12:09.050
  • In other words, you're gonna need some money to do
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:12.030
  • business with in heaven.
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:14.040
  • Heaven is not just going to be floating on clouds!
  • 00:12:14.070 --> 00:12:17.070
  • We talked about this a few weeks ago.
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:19.280
  • Heaven is going to be a perfect earth, and a perfect
  • 00:12:20.010 --> 00:12:23.050
  • heaven with no sin, no sorrow, but we're going
  • 00:12:23.080 --> 00:12:27.170
  • to be living our lives.
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:31.030
  • When I was young, I went to a baseball camp one summer
  • 00:12:31.060 --> 00:12:35.020
  • and I goofed off the whole camp.
  • 00:12:35.050 --> 00:12:37.030
  • I mean, I just goofed off, and I played pranks on people,
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:40.170
  • and I just didn't really apply myself.
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:42.290
  • And the last day, when we got together, there were
  • 00:12:43.020 --> 00:12:44.290
  • these tables and there were trophies on these tables.
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:50.050
  • And I remember thinking, wait a minute!
  • 00:12:50.080 --> 00:12:55.060
  • You didn't tell me that you were giving out awards!
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:13:00.020
  • If I had known you were giving awards,
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:01.240
  • I wouldn't have goofed off this whole week!
  • 00:13:01.270 --> 00:13:05.080
  • And of course, I didn't get one, 'cause I'd goofed off
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:06.220
  • the whole week.
  • 00:13:06.250 --> 00:13:08.290
  • I wonder how many believers are going to get to heaven,
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:14.040
  • but not have many rewards, and not have much responsibility,
  • 00:13:14.070 --> 00:13:19.190
  • because there are degrees of heaven and there
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:25.230
  • are degrees of hell.
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:29.060
  • Let me ask you something.
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:31.030
  • Will the person who is a believer, but he really
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:36.130
  • doesn't give generously, he doesn't tithe, he doesn't serve,
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:39.290
  • he doesn't witness, he doesn't really give himself
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:42.010
  • to the kingdom, will he receive the same reward
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:45.270
  • for the person who gives sacrificially,
  • 00:13:46.000 --> 00:13:49.090
  • spends many hours helping the poor, wins many people to Jesus?
  • 00:13:49.120 --> 00:13:53.220
  • Will each receive the same reward?
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:55.110
  • No.
  • 00:13:55.140 --> 00:13:56.050
  • Remember, God's a just God.
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:58.200
  • God is going to recompense every person,
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:03.230
  • believers and unbelievers, according to our works.
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:09.000
  • And this person who gives his or her life to the kingdom,
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:12.270
  • and sows, and serves, and loves, and ministers,
  • 00:14:13.000 --> 00:14:17.050
  • is going to receive rewards.
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:20.070
  • So, that's the Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:23.030
  • What about the Great White Throne Judgment?
  • 00:14:23.060 --> 00:14:25.020
  • Here's number two, the Great White Throne Judgment.
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:29.070
  • Turn over to Revelation 20.
  • 00:14:29.100 --> 00:14:33.060
  • Revelation 20, "The Great White Throne Judgment",
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:37.290
  • and I'm gonna show you why we call it the Great White
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:39.270
  • Throne Judgment, all right?
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:42.160
  • Revelation 20:11, "Then I saw a great white throne."
  • 00:14:42.190 --> 00:14:47.270
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:48.000 --> 00:14:56.170
  • That was all we theologians could come up with.
  • 00:14:56.200 --> 00:15:00.030
  • All right.
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:01.100
  • "Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it,
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:05.110
  • from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away.
  • 00:15:05.140 --> 00:15:09.250
  • And there was found no place for them.
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:12.200
  • And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:16.210
  • and books were opened."
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:18.200
  • Please notice, "books" here is plural.
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:22.170
  • The word "books" is plural.
  • 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:24.250
  • "Books were opened.
  • 00:15:24.280 --> 00:15:26.050
  • And another book", singular, "was opened,
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:31.010
  • which is the Book of Life."
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:34.020
  • Listen, this is a great example of belief and behavior.
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:38.150
  • If you believe, your name is in the book.
  • 00:15:38.180 --> 00:15:40.220
  • But in the books, all of our works are there,
  • 00:15:40.250 --> 00:15:43.060
  • whether you're believers or unbelievers.
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:45.130
  • See, the books are books of works, deeds that we did.
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:49.090
  • The book is whether you believe.
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:51.060
  • Okay?
  • 00:15:51.090 --> 00:15:52.060
  • Watch.
  • 00:15:52.090 --> 00:15:53.120
  • "And that book is the Book of Life, and the dead were
  • 00:15:53.150 --> 00:15:55.200
  • judged according to their works by the things which
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:59.250
  • were written in the books", plural.
  • 00:15:59.280 --> 00:16:03.210
  • "The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:06.030
  • and Hades", remember Hades is the Greek word for hell,
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:09.010
  • "delivered up the dead who were in them, and they were
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.170
  • judged, each one according to his works."
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:16.240
  • Now, I asked you a question a moment ago.
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:19.110
  • Will a believer who really doesn't give, or love, or serve,
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:23.190
  • get the same reward as the believer who sacrifices,
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:26.060
  • gives generously, tithes, witnesses, serves?
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:29.260
  • Will they get the same reward?
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:31.040
  • Obviously, if you think about it, no, they won't get
  • 00:16:31.070 --> 00:16:32.220
  • the same reward.
  • 00:16:32.250 --> 00:16:33.280
  • We're going to be rewarded for our good works,
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:36.080
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:16:36.110 --> 00:16:37.050
  • Okay.
  • 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:38.240
  • Will an unbeliever, will an unbeliever who does not give
  • 00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:45.270
  • his life to Jesus, but he's a good man,
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:48.280
  • he just obstinately says, "No, I don't believe in God,
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:51.150
  • I don't believe in Jesus Christ, I will not give my life
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:54.130
  • to Jesus", but he goes to work, and he has
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:57.120
  • a family, and he just kind of has a normal life,
  • 00:16:57.150 --> 00:17:00.130
  • but he obstinately refuses to give his life to Jesus, will he
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:03.290
  • receive the same punishment as a murderer and a rapist?
  • 00:17:04.020 --> 00:17:12.220
  • No.
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:13.250
  • It's different.
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:14.290
  • There are degrees of punishment, and I'm gonna show
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:17.130
  • it to you in the Bible.
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:18.170
  • Think about this.
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:20.020
  • Here's the guy who's a good guy, but he doesn't give his
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:22.100
  • life to Jesus.
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:23.160
  • He's gonna go to hell.
  • 00:17:23.190 --> 00:17:26.040
  • And, here's Hitler, who murdered six million Jews.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:30.250
  • God's a just God.
  • 00:17:30.280 --> 00:17:34.000
  • Hitler will be recompensed for his works.
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:39.060
  • He will receive punishment for his works.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:42.120
  • Let me show you Jesus' own words.
  • 00:17:42.150 --> 00:17:46.000
  • Matthew 11:21, "Woe to you, Chorazin!
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:50.090
  • Woe to you, Bethsaida!
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:52.120
  • For if the mighty works which were done in you
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:55.130
  • had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:59.280
  • long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:02.220
  • But I say to you, it will be more tolerable."
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:08.070
  • This in the Greek, by the way, means less suffering
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:11.150
  • or more lenient.
  • 00:18:11.180 --> 00:18:14.150
  • "It will be more tolerable" how could it be more or less
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:17.040
  • if it's both the same?
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:19.000
  • "For Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:23.040
  • And you, Capernaum", and notice again in the day
  • 00:18:23.070 --> 00:18:25.190
  • of judgment.
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:26.230
  • "And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven,
  • 00:18:26.260 --> 00:18:29.030
  • will be brought down to Hades", or hell, "for if the mighty
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:32.100
  • works which were done in you", now, watch.
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.040
  • This is an amazing statement Jesus is about to make.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:36.160
  • "If the mighty works which were done in you had been
  • 00:18:36.190 --> 00:18:38.210
  • done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day."
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:44.060
  • In other words, Sodom would have repented.
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:46.110
  • "But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:49.130
  • for the land of Sodom", Sodom and Gomorrah,"in the day
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:53.040
  • of judgment than for you."
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:57.000
  • This is amazing!
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:58.160
  • This is amazing.
  • 00:18:58.190 --> 00:19:00.100
  • And you know what was done in Capernaum, Chorazin,
  • 00:19:00.130 --> 00:19:03.120
  • and Bethsaida?
  • 00:19:03.150 --> 00:19:04.260
  • The works, the mighty works that were done?
  • 00:19:04.290 --> 00:19:06.080
  • Jesus!
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:07.160
  • Jesus Himself was in those cities doing miracles,
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:11.250
  • healing people, and preaching the gospel,
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:15.030
  • and they rejected Him.
  • 00:19:15.060 --> 00:19:16.110
  • You know what He said?
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:17.150
  • If I had gone to Sodom, they would have repented.
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:20.070
  • And God knows peoples' hearts.
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:22.280
  • This is Jesus talking!
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:24.040
  • We can't argue with it.
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:24.290
  • This is Jesus!
  • 00:19:25.020 --> 00:19:26.040
  • Jesus said Sodom would have remained until this day.
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:29.230
  • We would not have destroyed Sodom with fire.
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:32.030
  • They would have repented.
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:33.210
  • And I'm tellin' you, it's gonna be more tolerable
  • 00:19:33.240 --> 00:19:36.170
  • for Sodom in the day of judgment than it will for you.
  • 00:19:36.200 --> 00:19:41.130
  • Let me read you this verse out of Romans 2:5.
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:43.210
  • "But in accordance", in accordance, or to the degree,
  • 00:19:43.240 --> 00:19:47.030
  • "with your hardness and your impenitent heart,
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:51.180
  • you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:57.120
  • of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God."
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:20:04.230
  • He's talkin' to unbelievers here.
  • 00:20:04.260 --> 00:20:06.110
  • He said, you know what you're doin'?
  • 00:20:06.140 --> 00:20:07.150
  • You're storing up too, but you're storing up wrath.
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:11.100
  • You have to go back to the attributes of God.
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:14.270
  • Yes, God is love, God is mercy, God is grace, God is omniscient,
  • 00:20:15.000 --> 00:20:19.020
  • God is omnipotent, but God is just.
  • 00:20:19.050 --> 00:20:23.270
  • And a just God is going to judge each and every person
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:30.240
  • one day, and believers will be rewarded and unbelievers
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:34.230
  • will be punished for their works on this earth.
  • 00:20:34.260 --> 00:20:39.250
  • Now, I said this a few weeks ago, but I really need
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:42.000
  • to say it again.
  • 00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:43.170
  • I know this is heavy.
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.110
  • I know what I'm telling you is heavy.
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:46.220
  • Listen to me, though.
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:48.200
  • I feel like the doctor that is saying to you, you have
  • 00:20:48.230 --> 00:20:53.080
  • a disease and if you don't treat it, you will die,
  • 00:20:53.110 --> 00:20:58.170
  • but there is a cure.
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:02.000
  • There is a cure.
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.060
  • So, I'm not saying these things to scare you!
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:05.090
  • I'm simply telling you the truth from God's word.
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:08.020
  • There is a judgment day coming!
  • 00:21:08.050 --> 00:21:11.120
  • And every person will stand before the judgment seat
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:14.020
  • of God, every person, whether it's the Judgment Seat of Christ
  • 00:21:14.050 --> 00:21:16.160
  • or the Great White Throne Judgment, every person.
  • 00:21:16.190 --> 00:21:19.020
  • I'm not trying to scare you, I'm simply telling you,
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:21.130
  • there's a cure.
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:23.070
  • There's a cure, and it is to give your life to Jesus,
  • 00:21:23.100 --> 00:21:26.220
  • and to sell out to Him, and to serve Him completely.
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:30.130
  • Remember I told you about if I had known that the camp
  • 00:21:30.160 --> 00:21:33.290
  • was giving awards I wouldn't have goofed off so much?
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:36.230
  • I did a lot of things growing up not thinking
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:38.200
  • of consequences, unfortunately.
  • 00:21:38.230 --> 00:21:41.010
  • And I remember I used to hang out, now,
  • 00:21:41.040 --> 00:21:45.100
  • this is going to date me.
  • 00:21:45.130 --> 00:21:46.210
  • I understand that.
  • 00:21:46.240 --> 00:21:48.030
  • But, the hangout when I was growing up was the skating rink.
  • 00:21:48.060 --> 00:21:54.260
  • How many of you used to hang out at the skating rink?
  • 00:21:54.290 --> 00:21:58.060
  • Okay.
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:21:59.070
  • See, these are the older people in the crowd.
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:01.020
  • Okay?
  • 00:22:01.050 --> 00:22:01.230
  • All right.
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:04.190
  • And my father dropped me off.
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:06.140
  • I didn't have a driver's license at this time.
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:08.010
  • Dropped me off at a skating rink, but knew that I was up
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:10.130
  • to no good.
  • 00:22:10.160 --> 00:22:11.190
  • Now, I was beginning to hang out with the wrong crowd,
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.000
  • so after he dropped me off, he kind of circled the block
  • 00:22:14.030 --> 00:22:16.030
  • and came back.
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:19.030
  • And then, he watched from a hiding place, which I don't
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:22.150
  • think was fair, by the way.
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:24.050
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:24.080 --> 00:22:26.060
  • I was reminded when I was preparing this message,
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:28.070
  • it says, "The Father, who sees in secret."
  • 00:22:28.100 --> 00:22:32.260
  • Okay, I had that father!
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:36.210
  • He watched from a hiding place, and I started,
  • 00:22:36.240 --> 00:22:40.070
  • because I thought it was tough and cool,
  • 00:22:40.100 --> 00:22:41.290
  • and I had such a severe rejection problem.
  • 00:22:42.020 --> 00:22:44.070
  • I wanted to be accepted.
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:45.120
  • I'd started smoking cigarettes.
  • 00:22:45.150 --> 00:22:47.220
  • He knew where that would lead, which it did.
  • 00:22:47.250 --> 00:22:49.220
  • It led then to drinking and drugs.
  • 00:22:49.250 --> 00:22:51.150
  • That's where I went from there, because it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:54.230
  • It wasn't the cigarettes, it was rebellion.
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:56.230
  • That was the problem.
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:57.280
  • And so, he knew that, and so he watched that night,
  • 00:22:58.010 --> 00:23:01.220
  • the whole night I was there, until he picked me up
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:04.070
  • at the designated time.
  • 00:23:04.100 --> 00:23:06.070
  • He drove around the block again and he was very sneaky,
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:09.040
  • very sneaky!
  • 00:23:09.070 --> 00:23:10.240
  • And, picked me up and then we got home, and he asked
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:13.150
  • about the cigarettes.
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:14.190
  • I lied, of course.
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:15.240
  • Finally, he produced the evidence, and here's what he
  • 00:23:15.270 --> 00:23:18.250
  • did though.
  • 00:23:18.280 --> 00:23:20.040
  • He punished me according to the number of cigarettes
  • 00:23:20.070 --> 00:23:23.260
  • I smoked.
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:27.030
  • In other words, he punished, if you smoked
  • 00:23:27.060 --> 00:23:29.230
  • this many.
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:31.030
  • If you'd have just smoked two, it would have been this long,
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:32.250
  • but you smoked, you know, whatever it was.
  • 00:23:32.280 --> 00:23:34.250
  • And so, again, here's the thought that came to me.
  • 00:23:34.280 --> 00:23:38.080
  • If I had known!
  • 00:23:38.110 --> 00:23:40.020
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:23:40.050 --> 00:23:42.270
  • It was the same thought that I had at camp!
  • 00:23:43.000 --> 00:23:46.120
  • If I had known they were giving awards,
  • 00:23:46.150 --> 00:23:47.250
  • I would have acted differently!
  • 00:23:47.280 --> 00:23:49.150
  • If I had known that my punishment would
  • 00:23:49.180 --> 00:23:51.140
  • be in proportion to my sin, are you listening?
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:24:02.270
  • Now, let me say one other thing.
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:05.260
  • Everyone at the Judgment Seat's a believer.
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:09.040
  • Everyone at the Great White Throne Judgment
  • 00:24:09.070 --> 00:24:11.080
  • is an unbeliever.
  • 00:24:11.110 --> 00:24:12.170
  • But, listen to me carefully.
  • 00:24:12.200 --> 00:24:14.130
  • It's your choice which judgment you attend.
  • 00:24:14.160 --> 00:24:22.070
  • It's your choice.
  • 00:24:22.100 --> 00:24:24.130
  • PASTOR ROBERT: Remember, our belief determines
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.200
  • where we spend eternity, and our behavior determines
  • 00:24:26.230 --> 00:24:30.060
  • how we spend eternity.
  • 00:24:30.090 --> 00:24:32.100
  • So, I first want to encourage those of you who
  • 00:24:32.130 --> 00:24:34.120
  • are believers to live your lives in such a way that God
  • 00:24:34.150 --> 00:24:39.140
  • will reward you for your good works.
  • 00:24:39.170 --> 00:24:42.070
  • That's what the Bible says.
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:44.030
  • I also want to encourage those of you who've never given
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:46.100
  • your lives to Jesus Christ that you are not watching
  • 00:24:46.130 --> 00:24:49.220
  • today by accident.
  • 00:24:49.250 --> 00:24:51.090
  • I believe that the Holy Spirit led you to watch today's
  • 00:24:51.120 --> 00:24:54.220
  • program so you could learn that Jesus Christ
  • 00:24:54.250 --> 00:24:59.030
  • is the Son of God, that He died on the cross for your sins
  • 00:24:59.060 --> 00:25:02.290
  • and for my sins, and that eternal life is a free gift
  • 00:25:03.020 --> 00:25:07.060
  • of God that we can never earn, but we can receive it.
  • 00:25:07.090 --> 00:25:11.270
  • And I want to encourage you to receive Jesus today.
  • 00:25:12.000 --> 00:25:16.140
  • Hey, thanks so much for watching.
  • 00:25:16.170 --> 00:25:18.120
  • I want to encourage you to watch next time
  • 00:25:18.150 --> 00:25:20.140
  • as I continue this series.
  • 00:25:20.170 --> 00:25:22.220
  • ANNOUNCER: We're so glad that you joined us
  • 00:25:23.120 --> 00:25:24.120
  • for today's program, and we hope that you enjoyed
  • 00:25:24.150 --> 00:25:26.230
  • this important and timely message from Pastor Robert.
  • 00:25:26.260 --> 00:25:30.090
  • The afterlife is mysterious, and can often be scary
  • 00:25:30.120 --> 00:25:33.140
  • and overwhelming to think about.
  • 00:25:33.170 --> 00:25:35.080
  • Just the thought of it raises question after question.
  • 00:25:35.110 --> 00:25:38.050
  • What's Heaven like?
  • 00:25:38.080 --> 00:25:39.120
  • Is there a literal Hell?
  • 00:25:39.150 --> 00:25:40.260
  • Is there a judgement?
  • 00:25:40.290 --> 00:25:42.050
  • What about the second coming?
  • 00:25:42.080 --> 00:25:43.220
  • How can you know for sure?
  • 00:25:43.250 --> 00:25:45.280
  • In this five-part series, "The End: What Happens Next"
  • 00:25:46.010 --> 00:25:49.070
  • Pastor Robert reveals the answers to these questions
  • 00:25:49.100 --> 00:25:51.160
  • and so many more so that you can begin living a life
  • 00:25:51.190 --> 00:25:54.030
  • that truly matters.
  • 00:25:54.060 --> 00:25:55.160
