The characteristics of time and I think all of us look forward to that. But as I predicted this.
Micah chapter 4 verses 2 to 3 mediation shall come and say, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways in which I walk past for out of Zion, the loss of the fourth and the word of the Lord hundred he will judge between many peoples and beat strong nations far off, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. Turn also to Isaiah 1169. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb leopard shall lie down with the young goat calf and the young lion and fatling together in a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze, their young ones shall lie down together and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play by the cobras whole Marine child shall put his hand in the pipe, they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. It will be a time of prosperity. Isaiah 35 we have read these verses before and really doubt that when someone with a lion lay down with the lamb will be a time of prosperity. 35 verse 10 and the ransomed of the Lord shall return them to Zion with singing with everlasting joy on the heads and they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
The desert will bloom like a rose. When the kingdom of God covers the earth wilderness in the wasteland shall be glad in the desert shall rejoice and blossom as a rose abundantly and rejoice in with the joy in singing the glory of Lebanon shall be given to it to see the glory of the Lord, the excellency of our God strengthen the weak hands and make from the feeble knees say to those who are fearful hearted, be strong. Do not fear the elder God will come with vengeance with the recompense of God and he will come and safety in the eyes of the blind shall be open ears of the death champion stopped and the lame shall eat like a deer in the tongue of the dumb saying the water shall burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert parched ground shall become a pool and thirsty land springs of water and the habitations of jackals, where each lay heavy grass with reeds and rushes highway shall be there in a road and you shall be called the highway of holiness. This talks about the prosperity of the millennium have the desert will become lavish and less it will be a time of purity and holiness will pervade the earth, and that is very different from today. However, speaking of time where there will be mandatory righteousness. As I've heard it described in the past. In Isaiah chapter 11 verse nine they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters currency is amazing that the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea is a verse in the Bible where it talks about how people have a knowledge of the Lord.
Don't come to know him and here it says that the whole earth is full of the knowledge of the Lord, which is very different than today. Let's turn to Isaiah 25 verse nine and it will be said in that day.
Behold this is our God.
We have waited for him and he will save us. This is the Lord.
We have waited for him. So all of those that enter the millennial kingdom who have patiently waited on their redemption for the Lord will see from here one at his second coming to it will live it in the millennium.
Isaiah 66 verse 23 shall come to pass, that from one new man to another, one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says the Lord. Very different time and what were leaving today, and lastly, to talk about purity is mentioned in Zechariah chapter 13 verse two. It shall be in that day, says the Lord of hose that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land they shall no longer be remembered now because the prophets and the unclaimed year to depart from the land all the idols will be taken away.
There will be no need for profit because God will rule from Zion himself, it will be a time of perpetual health and this is really what intrigues me the most probably is because as you know I'm a physician and the time of the millennium. I will have you think you do have one and find a different job but appraisal or for sure on, but here in verse 20 it says no more shall an infant from their lives but a few days, nor an old man who is not field in his days for the child shall die 100 years old at the center being 100 years old shall be accursed. So does the curse of the flesh will be reversed and you know the reason that we have sickness, disease, and infirmity now is because we live in a sensate world on but it will be interesting to see how mortality is affected and that there will not be mortality there were not be morbidity on in the millennium and I'm excited about that, but is also a time of personal joys and if you look at Isaiah chapter 9 verses 34 you have multiplied the nation and increased its joy. They rejoice before you. According to the joy of harvest as men rejoice when they divide spoil. We have broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder. The rod of his oppressor as in the day of meeting must turn to Isaiah 12 and three. Therefore, the joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 14 738 the whole earth is at rest and quiet it break forth into singing. Indeed, the cypress tree rejoice every and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, since you are cut down.
No woodsman has come up against us. Isaiah talks a lot about this time of personal joy and there are number of other verses.
I'm very excited about what the millennium will be chapter 20 covers the millennium as well as great white throne judgment which I said that we would talk about differently as they are two distinct events.
Let's move on to the rest of chapter 20 verse 11 to 15 then I saw a great white throne and him who sat on from his faith the earth and heaven right away and there was found no place for the and I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was open, which is the book of life and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which are written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in the and they were judged, each one according to his works. Then death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.
This is second death. Anyone not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Here we see the judgment of the spiritually dead. It occurs after the morning. This is known as the second resurrection. So let's look at the place the great white nonjudgment. We don't know where it takes place.
But we do know where it does not in heaven or on earth as in verse 11 it says at the appearance of the Lord, the earth and heaven fled away. Also sinners cannot inner into the presence of God in heaven.
This judgment takes place somewhere between heaven and earth, we see the words great white throne. Great is the infinite one who is the judge white Sanskrit's divine holiness, purity, injustice and throne speaks of the majesty of the one who has the right to determine the destiny of his creation. All of those are Jesus Christ the person and the great white nonjudgment is Jesus Christ himself is emphasized by the names. Also, we find this in some of the New Testament books. Phyllis turned to John chapter 5 verse 22 of the father judges no one, but he has committed all judgment to the son, so we know that because Jesus Christ died on the cross and gave his life, his inheritance will be the right to rule in the millennium kingdom.
Also, the right to judge our works as well as those acts of the sinner. So we see that in John five chapter 22.
In acts 10 on verse 42 we see and he commanded us to preach the people and to testify that is he you are sedating by God to be judge of the living dead set of the judge of the living is at the judgment seat of Christ is an eternal life in the judgment of the dead is those that are at the great white nonjudgment Christ will judge spiritually living is that the judgment seat of Christ.
Jesus Christ would judge the spiritually dead at the great white nonjudgment. Christ is the one who gave his life, the redemption of those he is about to judge, you must reject those he's rejected him and his plan for salvation. I think that's what a lot of people today do not stand is that the fact that Christ gave out gave his life standard which will be judged by what we've gone over the name of the great let them judgment. The person at the right what judgment you listen to the people in verse 12 it says and I sell the dead, small and great, which is a phrase used in the Old Testament as well as five times in Revelation tells us that every class of people will be represented in that day God is no respecter of persons as far as righteousness. Also, as far as judgment it will affect all classes of people. The purpose of the great white throne judgment.
Why is this because Christ died because he has offered this gift of grace calls we are guilty, there is an atonement that needed to be made. Christ made a ton and by making that atonement really develops standard for forgiveness and when we reject that standard is why the passing of a sentence needs to occur. Let's read Romans chapter 2 verses five through 11 in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each one according to his deeds eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality. But to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath tribulation and English on every soul of man who does evil, the Jew first and also of the Greek glory, honor and peace to everyone. His works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, there is no partiality with God that sentences help to the passing of the sentence and stipulation incentive program talk into parts that the sentence is hail in verse 12. The books were opened. Another book the book of life. All the dead were judged according to their works, by the things written in these books we can know based on what I read in Romans based on the condition of her heart. What type of judgment were laying up for ourselves so it's not like it's God's fault. It's our fault say for thinking if this would've happened if that would have happened.
No gun is all that and even the condition of her heart will determine the type of judgment, we will receive. Again, there will be books that will be open but how God is good judges and a judge according to the truth. That truth is we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. That is, Romans two, and to but when God judges according to the truth. That truth is that he is God, and there is no other before there was. He was and he will still be his everlasting to everlasting and he gave his son as a payment and penalty for our sin because sin alone. There is none righteous, no not one. We are eternally sinful in our own right and outside intervention of God. We will never be righteous. Righteousness is like the rags and we need atonement sacrifice foreshadows the need for atomic Jesus Christ is that ultimate atonement and what we do with that gift is mediated out of the condition of her heart, and based on the actions of our heart. Whether we reject him or accept him will be judged according to that truth can be judged according to our deeds in Romans two on verse six it said, but God will render to each one according to his deeds. Also, God will render to each one according to the secrets of men by the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, God judges according to the secrets of man, what is in the heart. You know a lot of people see our righteous exterior.
They don't see her ungodly heart that need the grace of God daily, sometimes on us minute by minute. Even in my own case as we move onto the books it says the books were opened. And I want to spend some time in the books that are going to be opened and the books were open another the book of life. All the deeds were judged according to their works, and by the things written in the books and actually and studying on Dr. Jeremiah's book to escape the coming night on he expounds on these books are barred. A lot of this from him. First I want to talk about the book of conscious let's read Romans chapter 2 verse 15 who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them our conscious panic use this or you can excuse us Romans chapter 2 verse 15 says that the Gentiles had the work of the law written in their heart wherever you go you find people with an inner source of right and wrong.
The Bible calls that our conscious you can see sinners do good things or stable.
This is writer. This is wrong.
It's their conscious that inner beacon that tells us what's right or what's wrong.
The conscious is not an infallible guide right or wrong or conscious is not perfect is one thing, but when it is brazenly violated patient is an attitude towards the end may be brought to bear against the unbeliever yet and I don't overachieve it on that. I wondered if they even have a conscience just and how self-serving they are and things that they do.
The next book is the book of words that is mentioned in Matthew chapter 1236 to 37 but I say to you that every idle word men may speak they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
For by your words you will be justified.
