END TIME INSIGHTS
posted by Author Comans
I find it odd that Christians who decry socialism here, think that Heaven
will be socialistic.
How many people believe that once we get saved, that
we all go to Heaven where equality is the order?
Scripture does not teach this!
Scripture teaches three Judgments or separations; the
first two for believers.
In fact, Jesus, himself in Matthew 25 teaches about these judgments.
(Christ comes to receive His Bride) occurs prior to The
Seven Years of Great Tribulation!
The Judgment Seat of Christ,
(Christ judges the Believers of all time based on their
faithfulness) occurs immediately after His Second Coming but
prior to His Millennial Reign!
The Great White Throne of Judgment (God’s judgment as to one’s eternal destiny: SAVED / LOST) occurs after the
Let me hasten to say that one’s eternal destiny is sealed in this life. It
is given by the Grace of God as we receive or reject God’s
provision of HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS – IN CHRIST JESUS, OUR LORD,
Recently the question was asked of me, “How can you consider
the Rapture a
My reply was, “if you’re saved but left behind when the
Rapture occurs you’d certainly feel judged.”
separation of believers will be when the Bridegroom comes
for His Bride.
Traditionally, this has been viewed as the rapture of
all believers, but that’s not what Matthew 25 teaches.
Matthew 25:1-13 teaches a
separation of believers.
All ten virgins were saved.
Five were wise; five were foolish.
Foolish means double minded.
The foolish were not lost!
They were left behind!
Scripture teaches that He’s coming for His Bride and
she is making herself ready for His coming.
She is getting purified (clothed in white) and
watching and praying for His appearing.
What Bride does not with great anticipation await her
those foolish members of the group were shut out because
they were not ready, the Groom says, “I don’t know you”
He is saying,
“You and I are not intimate; you’re not my Bride.”
The word for ‘know’ used here is “oida”
for intimacy. Jesus
isn't saying they are lost; merely that they are
not His Bride.
They are left behind to endure 7 years of tribulation upon
the Earth. The Bride
escapes that judgment.
In Luke 21:36 speaking of these times, Jesus says,
“Watch, therefore, and pray always that you may be counted
worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass…”
THE JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST:
Matthew 25:14 begins the next parable or Judgment.
This describes the
Judgment Seat of
This judgment is also a separation of believers.
This is the parable of the Unfaithful Servant.
What happens to this servant?
Matt. 25:30 “And cast the unprofitable servant
into the outer darkness.
There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
He was a servant; he belonged to the Master.
I’m indebted to Chuck Missler and his book, “The Kingdom,
Power and Glory” for his guidance into this scriptural
unprofitable servant was not lost, but was cast outside the
presence of Christ.
The profitable servants’ reward was to enter into the
presence of Christ where they will rule and reign with him
for the Millennial kingdom that is about to begin.
This judgment takes place after Christ’s second
coming to the Earth, which is immediately after the 7 years
of Great Tribulation upon the Earth.
Remember, Christ returns with His Bride in-tow to establish
His Kingdom on Earth for 1000 years.
He conquers all political powers at Armageddon and
His first order of business is the Judgment Seat of Christ
or His settling of accounts with His servants, i.e. Matt.
25:19. What did
the faithful receive?
Matt.25:21; “Well done good and faithful servant;
you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler
over many things.
Enter into the joy of your Lord.”
He is setting up His
Faithful Christians will rule with Him during the
Unfaithful Christians will not.
They will be cast out of the presence of Christ to
experience ‘remedial’ instruction.
I don’t know if this is for the whole 1000 years or
until the unfaithful servant is rehabilitated.
See Missler’s book for insight here.
GREAT WHITE THRONE OF JUDGEMENT:
The last parable is the final and eternal separation of the
sheep from the goats.
The sheep are those who follow Him.
“My sheep hear my voice; I know them and they
The goats are those who have not followed Jesus.
