Earth’s Final Warning part 1

21 Nov

Compiled from the Mark Woodman DVD series “God’s final call”

 

Part 1

Today we find that Christianity has the testimony of and faith in Jesus

Christ, but they

don’t keep the 10 Commandments. This idea of

righteousness by grace without any works

has been over emphasised that

the law has been removed

but the law clearly, has not been removed.

God calls us to worship Him as the Creator. Remove yourselves from the

idea that you are evolving to‟ God

hood‟. The immortality of the soul is a lie

opening up the doors to evolution, re-incarnation and various other things

that lead us away from God.

Rev 18:1-3 (speaks of a cry from heaven warning us against the deception

on earth). God is rebuking the false system that we find ourselves in. „

And

after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great

power and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with

a strong voice saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the

habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of every

unclean and hateful bird. For

all nations have drunk of the wine of the

wrath of her fornication and the

kings of the earth have committed

fornication with her and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through

the abundance of her delicacies.

.‟

God‟s church is represented in the Bible as His bride.

Ellen White

, p277 writes: “The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the

second angel, is repeated, with the additional mention of the

corruptions

which have been entering the churches since

1844. The work of this angel

comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel‟s

message as it swells to a loud cry

. And the people of God are thus prepared to

stand in the hour of temptation, which they are soon to meet. I saw a great

light resting upon them and they united to fearlessly proclaim the third angel‟s

message.

Rev 18:4, 5 „

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her,

my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her

plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven and God hath remembered

her iniquities

A 120 years it will be as it was in the days of Noah when this message of

Righteousness by Faith will be preached..and then one will be taken and one

will be left behind..

The world needs to hear the

Sanctuary message the Old Testament

tabernacle is pointing towards the heavenly sanctuary. Heb 8:1-

2 „We have

such a high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in

the heavens; A minister of the Sanctuary and of the true tabernacle, which the

Lord pitched and not man

.‟ In other words, we have such a high priest, in

heaven; a minister of the sanctuary, the true tabernacle, which the Lord

pitched and not man.

In the

Jewish calendar, a year was seen as an entire cycle. A full cycle of

the Jewish calendar would represent the full cycle of an

entire Christian

era

(type and antitype).

Type

(One Jewish year) Antitype (entire Christian era)

Passover (Nisan 14) Crucifixion

Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15) Christ in the grave

First Fruits (Nisan 16) Resurrection

Feast of weeks (Sivan 6) Pentecost, harvest of souls

The four feasts in the Old Testament were fulfilled in the New Testament

(discussed earlier). Three of the Old Testament feasts were a shadow of

things to come and was fulfilled by Jesus in the NT.

Three other important feasts was the

Trumpets (Tishri 1)

Atonement (Tishri 10)

Tabernacle (Tishri 15)

We need to ask

how do they get fulfilled? Going back to lecture number 2

Who is God?

70 week prophecy of Daniel 8:13-14 How long shall be the

vision concerning the daily sacrifice and the transgression of desolation, to

give both the Sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said

unto me, Unto

two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the

Sanctuary be cleansed

. (17) „he said unto me, Understand, O son of man:

For at the time of the end shall be the vision

.‟

2300 Days has got something to do with the end of time and out of these

2300 days, 70 weeks is put aside for something: Daniel 9:24 „

Seventy

weeks

are determined upon thy people upon thy holy city, to finish the

transgression and to make an end of sins and to make reconciliation for

iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness and to seal up the vision

and prophecy and to anoint the most Holy

.‟ (verse 25) „Know therefore and

understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to

restore and to

build

Jerusalem unto the Messiah, the prince shall be seven weeks and

threescore and two weeks

…(verse 26) „and after threescore and two

weeks

shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself

..(verse 27) „Then he shall

confirm a covenant with many for

one week; But in the middle of the week He

shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering

.‟

Remember the key to unlock:

one day for a year.

Starting trigger of 2300 days

is the commandment to restore and to build

Jerusalem. This was pinpointed at

457 BC with the Decree of Artaxerses I,

to re-establish the city government of Jerusalem.

457 BC (Decree) + 69 weeks = 483 years

27 AD (Jesus baptised) + 3.5 years

31 AD (Jesus crucified) + 3.5 years

34 AD (Stephen stoned) unto 2300 days 9 years, then shall the sanctuary be

cleansed (Dan 8:14) = JUDGEMENT DAY

What does this mean? This date comes

457 BC + 2300 years (days) =

1844 (remember there is no zero year). Not

realising that there was

no zero year, people came up with a date of 1843. A

cry/warning went out into the world to recognise and acknowledge the

Creator

called the Miller write movement there was for the first time in

history an acknowledgement of this 2300 days/year prophecy. We don‟t

know the hour or the year. In their error, they went back to the Bible, and

realising their error

in that there is no „zero‟ year, – stated that 1844 would

be the end of the world! Disillusioned, many people left the movement,

bitter and disappointed.

William Miller got the date right, but they got the

event wrong

.

They did not yet recognise that the

earthly sanctuary was pointing towards

the

heavenly sanctuary. The sanctuary cleansing process was a critical

event in the cycle of the tabernacle that took place every year, because all

the sins of the people would be „pent up‟ in this sanctuary and once a year

the high priest would go in and this sanctuary would be cleansed. In the

bigger picture what this is pointing to is once, in the entire cycle of earth‟s

history, the sanctuary which is in heaven would be cleansed. Heb 9:1-12

Then verily, the first covenant had also ordinance of divine service and a

worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was

 the candlestick and the table and the showbread; which is called the

sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the

Holiest of all; Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went

always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the

second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which

he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The

 Holy Ghost this

signifying, that the

 way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest,

while as the first tabernacle was yet standing

: here we have confirmation

that the Holy Ghost has not yet opened the way into the tabernacle in the

Old Testament

) „But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come,

by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say,

not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own

blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal

redemption for us

.‟ Once this 1843/4 didn‟t happen, these scholars went

back and studied the Word and realised their mistake.

Through the blood of Jesus Christ, He enters once into the heavenly

sanctuary

the Day of Atonement was exactly that. From the first day that

sin came into the world, man separated himself from God. Once a year, in

the sanctuary on earth, there was a point where man had the chance to

unify with God again. That was the Day of Atonement (At- One- ment). As

the high priest entered the most holy, he was order by God to wear

pomegranates and

bells the people outside would then listen to the sound

of the bells, if they could not hear him moving anymore, they would know

they he had died because he was not without sin before God. He was there

on their behalf

, and they had to trust what was being done by him for

them. In the same way, we have to have faith in Jesus where He is in the

sanctuary after 1844 on our behalf. Two goats were chosen and tied just

outside the curtain of the sanctuary waiting through all this for their part in

this last final symbol of union between God and man and the end of sin.

They cast lots over the 2 goats

one was God’s goat and the other was the

scapegoat

the one chosen to represent the devil known as Azazel.

(sondebok – baphomed)

Here is the first indication why people represent

the devil as a goat.

The high priest would use God‟s goat as a peace offering for himself and

then take the second goat (Azazel)

he would confess that the sins had now

been removed from their minds, memories and lives and now were

transferred to the mind, memory and life of the devil. He does not kill him,

but a man would then lead Azazel into the wilderness where he would be

left. In other words, the sins would be taken out of the sanctuary,

transferred onto the goat and the sanctuary would be cleansed. This

happened once every year on the Day of Atonement.

Compiled from Mark Woodman’s DVD series ‘

  From the time of Jesus

crucifixion, we received the right to ask God directly

to forgive our sins, these sins were then transferred to the Heavenly

Sanctuary

and this sanctuary had to be cleansed! And the date given by

the Lord was

1844. Not only does this prophecy depict Christ in the

Heavenly Sanctuary

, it also points to the destruction of all sin on earth but

also to Baphomed, Azazel being led out into the wilderness.

The Trumpets (Tishri 1) is fulfilled in the Second Advent movement

Atonement (Tishri 10) is fulfilled in the pre-advent judgment

Tabernacle (Tishri 15) is fulfilled in the homecoming second advent.

Trumpets (message went into the world

be careful, the end of the world is

coming (Trumpets). 1844

the moment when Jesus enters the Holiest of

holy on our behalf to request that the tabernacle be cleansed of all sin

(Atonement)

. And then the homecoming is what we‟re waiting for now

(Tabernacle). This is a beautiful depiction of what Jesus if doing on our

behalf.

Satan knows and studies prophecies. The

Jesuit order was set up in 1734

(110 years prior to 1844).

America was acknowledged by France in 1798.

What happened around the same time?

1776

was the American Revolution,

1789

, the French revolution. In 1789, the Original Human Rights

declaration

of the French revolution is shown laid out as the 10

commandments, on two tablets, in the middle, the symbol of fasciasism,

above the hat of Jacobin, serpent eating its own tail, Masonic triangle with

Karl Marx joined the league of communists in 1844 and Darwin

starts pinning together his work on Origin of the species. In 1844, the

Sinaitic manuscript

(Codex Sinaiticus) was discovered at Mt. Sinai in the

monastery of St. Catherine. The manuscript agrees with the Codex

Vatica

nus “discovered” 1481 in the Vatican library. More or less the same

time, 1848, there‟s this recognition of the birthplace of

Modern

Spiritualism

– “Upon this site stood the Hydesville cottage, the home of the

The Fox sisters

world was established March 31, 1848

Around the same time, the Bahai faith was founded by Baha‟l-Baha

(linking the faith with the Bahi faith founded by the Bab, (meaning gate). He

announced that he was the coming One in 1863. His son Adu‟l

-Baha was

his successor. [In other words

– another „gate‟ to God.] In their own

documents they refer to the wronged „one‟ –

this is all about Unit under the

wronged „one‟.

Albert Pike wrote in about the 3 World Wars necessary to unify the

world under one government (barely 30 years after 1844).

And today the

United Nations uses the sun symbol and the baal hadad as

their symbol. There‟s this image of Jesus knocking on the building of the UN

building

– trying to warn them that they don‟t know what they‟re doing.

Case Closed

21 Nov
The jury is in, the verdict read … case closed! Few thoughts could be more sobering. The day is fast approaching when every person who has ever lived will have their lives reviewed before the all-knowing eyes of God (2 Corinthians 5:10). But don’t let this alarm you – take heart! Millions have already found the judgment message in this Study Guide to be very good news! On four occasions when the book of Revelation mentions the great judgment, it brings forth praise and thanksgiving! But did you know that the Bible mentions judgment more than a thousand times? Almost every Bible writer refers to it, so its importance cannot be overemphasized. In the next few minutes, you’re going to get a real eye-opener in this neglected subject.
First Phase of the Final Judgement

1. The angel Gabriel gave Daniel the prophecy of the 1844 heavenly judgment.  The first phase of the judgment is called the pre-advent judgment because it takes place before Jesus’ second coming.  What group of people will be considered in the first phase of the judgment?  When does it end?

“Judgment must begin at the house of God.” 1 Peter 4:17. “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”  Revelation 22:11, 12.  (See also 1 Timothy 3:15.)

Answer:   It ends just before the second coming of Jesus.  Those (living and dead) who claimed to be Christians–“the house of God”–will be considered in the pre-advent judgment.  (The 1844 date is established in Study Guide 18.)

Jesus stands with His faithful people in the judgment and promises them a positive verdict.

Jesus stands with His faithful people in the judgment and promises them a positive verdict.

2. Who presides at the judgment?  Who is the defense attorney?  The judge?  The accuser?  Who are the witnesses?

“The Ancient of days did sit, … his throne was like the fiery flame.”  “The judgment was set, and the books were opened.” Daniel 7:9, 10.  “We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1. “The Father … hath committed all judgment unto the Son.” John 5:22. “The Devil, … the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:9, 10.  “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.” Revelation 3:14.  (See also Colossians 1:12-15.)

Answer:   God the Father, the Ancient of days, presides in the judgment.  He loves you very much (John 16:27).  Satan is your only accuser.  In the heavenly court, Jesus, who loves you, your best friend will be your attorney, judge, and witness.  And He promises that judgment will be “given in favour of the saints.” Daniel 7:22, NEB.*

Evidence presented in the judgment comes from the books of heaven.

Evidence presented in the judgment comes from the books of heaven.

3. What is the source of evidence used in the pre-advent judgment?  By what standard will all be judged?  Since God already knows everything about every person, why have a judgment?

“The judgment was set, and the books were opened.” Daniel 7:10.  “The dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Revelation 20:12.  “They … shall be judged by the law of liberty.” James 2:12.  “We are made a spectacle [theater] unto the world, and to angels, and to men.” 1 Corinthians 4:9.

Answer:   Evidence for court comes from books in which all details of one’s life are recorded.  For the faithful, the record of prayer, repentance, and forgiveness of sin will be there for all to see.  The records will prove that God’s power enables Christians to live changed lives. God is pleased with His saints and will delight in sharing the evidence of their lives. The judgment will confirm that there is “no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1.
The Ten-Commandment law is God’s standard in the judgment (James 2:10-12).  Breaking His law is sin (1 John 3:4).  The righteousness of the law will be fulfilled by Jesus in all of His people (Romans 8:3, 4).  To claim that this is impossible is to doubt Jesus’ word and His power.
The judgment is not to inform God.  He is already fully informed (2 Timothy 2:19).  However, the redeemed people will be coming to heaven from a world that has been degraded by sin.  Both the angels and the inhabitants of other unfallen worlds would certainly feel uneasy about admitting anyone to God’s heavenly kingdom who might start sin all over again.  Thus, the judgment will open to them every detail and answer every question.  Satan’s real aim has always been to discredit God as unfair, ruthless, unloving, and untruthful.  This makes it even more important for all beings in the universe to see firsthand how extremely patient God has been with sinners.  The vindication of God’s character is the prime purpose of the judgment (Revelation 11:16-19 15:2-4 16:5, 7 19:1, 2 Daniel 4:36, 37).  Note that the praise and glory are given to God for the way He handles the judgment.

Every facet of a person's life will be reviewed in the judgment.

Every facet of a person’s life will be reviewed in the judgment.

4. What portion of a person’s life is considered in the pre-advent judgment?  What will be confirmed? How will rewards be decided?

“God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:14. “Let both [wheat and tares] grow together until the harvest.” “The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend.”
Matthew 13:30, 41. “Behold, I come quickly and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:12.

Answer:   Every detail of life will be reviewed, including secret thoughts and actions.  For this reason, this first phase of the judgment is also called the investigative judgment.  The judgment will confirm who will be saved of those who claimed to be Christians.  It will doubtless also confirm as lost those whose names are not judged in the pre-advent judgment.  Although we are saved by grace, rewards will be given based on works, deeds, or conduct, which prove the genuineness of a Christian’s faith (James 2:26).

Second Phase of the Final Judgement

5. What group is involved in the heavenly judgment during the 1,000 years of Revelation chapter 20?  What is the purpose of this second phase of the judgment?

“Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? … Know ye not that we shall judge angels?”
1 Corinthians 6:2, 3.  “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them.” Revelation 20:4.

Answer

Answer:   The “saints,” or righteous people of all ages who Christ takes to heaven in the cloud at His second coming, will be participating in this second phase of the judgment.
Suppose a family discovered that their much-beloved son who was murdered was not in heaven.  But the murderer was.  Doubtless they would need some answers.  This second phase of the judgment will answer all the questions of the righteous.  The life of every lost person (including Satan and his angels) will be carefully reviewed by the righteous, who will then totally agree with Jesus’ decisions regarding the reward for each one.  It will become obvious to all that the judgment is no arbitrary matter.  Instead, it simply confirms the choices which people have already made to serve either Jesus or another master (Revelation 22:11, 12).  (For a review of the 1,000 years, see Study Guide 12.)

Third Phase of the Final Judgement

6. When and where will the third phase of the final judgment take place?  What new group will be present at this phase of judgment?

“His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem.” “And the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” “All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem.” Zechariah 14:4, 5, 10. “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven.” Revelation 21:2.  “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall … go out to deceive the nations … to gather them together to battle.” Revelation 20:7, 8.

The wicked will try to attack the holy city.

The wicked will try to attack the holy city.

Answer:   The third phase of the judgment will take place on the earth at the close of the 1,000 years of Revelation chapter 20, after Jesus’ return to earth with the holy city.  All the wicked who have ever lived, including the devil and his angels, will be present.  At the close of the 1,000 years, the wicked dead of all ages will be raised (Revelation 20:5).  Satan immediately launches a powerful propaganda campaign to deceive them.  Amazingly, he succeeds in convincing the nations of earth that they can capture the holy city.

7. What happens next?

“They went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city.” Revelation 20:9.

Answer:   The wicked surround the city and prepare to attack.

The third phase of the judgment will interrupt the plan to attack the city.

The third phase of the judgment will interrupt the plan to attack the city.

8. What interrupts their battle plan, and with what results?

“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.” Revelation 20:12. “We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:10. “As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:11, 12.

Answer:   Unexpectedly, without warning, God appears with almost paralyzing brightness above the city (Revelation 19:11-21).  The moment of truth has arrived.  Every lost soul since the world began, including Satan and his angels, now faces God in judgment.  Every eye is fastened upon the King of kings (Revelation 20:12).
Each Person Sees Own Life Reviewed Then each lost soul recalls his own life story:  God’s constant, warm, pleading calls to repent that wooing, still, small voice the awesome conviction that often came the repeated refusals to respond.  It is all there.  Its accuracy is incontestable.  Its facts are irrefutable.  God wants the wicked to fully understand.  He will provide any details desired in order to make all things clear.  The books and records are available.
No Cover-Up God is not involved in some celestial cover-up.  He has destroyed no evidence, erased no tapes.  There is nothing to hide.  Everything is open, and every person who has ever lived plus all the good and bad angels will be viewing this drama of all dramas.
The Lost Fall to Their Knees Suddenly there is a movement.  One lost soul drops to his knees to admit his guilt and openly confess that God was more than fair with him. His own stubborn pride kept him from responding. And on all sides now, people and evil angels are likewise kneeling. Then in one great, almost simultaneous move all remaining people and evil angels, including Satan, fall prostrate before God (Romans 14:11).  They openly clear the name of God from all false accusations and give witness to His loving, fair, merciful treatment of them.
All Confess That the Sentence Is Fair All confess that the sentence of death pronounced upon them is fairthe only safe way to handle sin. Of each lost person it can be said, “Thou hast destroyed thyself.” Hosea 13:9. God now stands vindicated before the universe. The accusations and claims of Satan have been exposed and unequivocally discredited as the perverse lies of a hardened sinner.

Fire from heaven will eradicate sin and sinners for eternity.

Fire from heaven will eradicate sin and sinners for eternity.

9. What final steps will eradicate sin from the universe and provide a secure home and future for the righteous?

“They … compassed the camp of the saints about, … and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:9, 10.  “For they [the wicked] shall be ashes under the soles of your feet.” Malachi 4:3. “Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth.” Isaiah 65:17. “Look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” 2 Peter 3:13. “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, … and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them.” Revelation 21:3.

Answer:   Fire from heaven will fall upon the wicked.  The fire will completely eradicate sin and sinners from the universe forever.  (See Study Guide 11 for full details on hellfire.)  This will be a time of deep sadness and trauma for God’s people.  Virtually every person will have a loved one or friend in the fire.  Guardian angels will probably shed tears over the loss of the people they protected and loved for years.  Even Christ will doubtless weep over those He loved and plead with so long.  At that awful moment the anguish of God, our loving Father, over the terrible cost of sin will defy description.
New Heavens and Earth Then the Lord will wipe all tears away from His redeemed people (Revelation 21:4) and create new heavens and a new earth lovely beyond description for His saints.  And best of all, He will reside here with His people throughout eternity.  No thinking person would want to miss that.

The sacrificed animal represented Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

10. How did the “day of atonement” service in the Old Testament earthly sanctuary symbolize the judgment and God’s plan to eradicate sin from the universe and restore perfect harmony?

Answer:   In Study Guide 2, we learned how Satan falsely accused and challenged God and brought the ugly malignancy of sin into the universe. The day of atonement in ancient Israel taught, through symbols, how God will handle the sin problem and bring harmony back to the universe by the atonement.  (Atonement means “at-one-ment,” or “to bring all things into total divine harmony.”)
In the earthly sanctuary, the symbolic steps were:
A. Lord’s goat slain to cover sins of the people.
B. Priest ministered the blood before the mercy seat.
C. Judgment took place in this order:
(1) the righteous confirmed, (2) the unrepentant cut off, and (3) the record of sin removed from the sanctuary.
D. Record of sin placed on scapegoat.
E. Scapegoat sent into wilderness.
F. People cleansed from their sins.
G. All begin new year with a clean slate.
These five symbolic steps represent literal atonement events which are instituted from the heavenly sanctuary, God’s celestial headquarters for the universe.  The first point above is the symbol of the literal atonement event of the first point below the second point above is the symbol of the second point below, etc.  Notice how clearly God has symbolized these great atonement events:
A. Jesus’ sacrificial death as man’s substitute (1 Corinthians 15:3 5:7).
B. Jesus as our High Priest restores people to God’s image (Hebrews 4:14-16 Romans 8:29).
C. Judgment provides records to confirm lives,good and bad, and then removes the records of sin from the heavenly sanctuary (Revelation 20:12 Acts 3:19-21).
D. Responsibility for originating sin and for causing all people to sin is placed on Satan (1 John 3:8 Revelation 22:12).
E. Satan banished into wilderness (1,000 years of Revelation chapter 20).
F. Satan, sin, and sinners eradicated permanently (Revelation 20:10 21:8 Psalms 37:10, 20 Nahum 1:9).
G. New earth created for God’s people.  Everything lost by sin is restored to the Lord’s saints (2 Peter 3:13 Acts 3:20, 21).
The atonement is not completed until the universe and all in it are restored to pre-sin condition with the assurance that sin will never rise again.

After the judgment, sin will be gone forever.  The righteous will be safe for eternity.

After the judgment, sin will be gone forever.  The righteous will be safe for eternity.

Thought Questions

1. What is the difference between accepting Jesus as my Saviour and accepting Him as my Lord? The difference is substantial.  When I accept Him as Saviour, He saves me from the guilt and penalty of sin and gives me the new birth.  He changes me from sinner to saint.  This transaction is a glorious miracle and is essential to salvation.  No one can be saved without it.  However, Jesus is not finished with me at this point.  I have been born, but His plan is that I also grow up to become like Him (Ephesians 4:13).  When I accept Him daily as the ruler, or Lord, of my life, He, by His miracles, causes me to grow in grace and Christian conduct until I am mature in Christ (2 Peter 3:18).
The Problem – I Want My Own Way The problem is that I want to run my own life – have my own way. The Bible calls this “iniquity”, or sin (Isaiah 53:6).  Making Jesus my Lord is so important that the New Testament mentions Him as “Lord” 766 times.  In the book of Acts alone, He is referred to as “Lord” 110 times and as “Saviour” only twice.  This demonstrates how important it is to know Him as Lord and Ruler of our lives.
A Neglected Imperative – Making Him Lord Jesus placed continuing emphasis upon His Lordship because He knew that crowning Him Lord would be a forgotten and neglected imperative (2 Corinthians 4:5).  Unless I make Him Lord of my life, there is no way I can ever become a full-grown Christian clothed in Christ’s righteousness.  Instead, I will end up “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” and, even worse, feeling that I “have need of nothing”. Revelation 3:17.

2. Since the record of the sins of God’s people were transferred on the day of atonement to the scapegoat, doesn’t that make him also our sin-bearer?  I thought Jesus alone bore our sins. The scapegoat, which represents Satan, in no way bears, or pays for, our sins. The Lord’s goat, which was sacrificed on the day of atonement, represents Jesus, who assumed and paid for our sins on Calvary. Jesus alone “taketh away the sin of the world”.  John 1:29.  Satan will be punished (as will all other sinners—Revelation 20:12-15) for his own sins, which will include responsibility for  (1) the existence of sin, (2) his own evil actions, and (3) influencing every person on earth to sin.  God will clearly hold him accountable for evil.  This is what the symbolism of the transfer of sin to the scapegoat (Satan) on the day of atonement is meant to convey.

3. The Bible is clear that God forgives all sins which are confessed (1 John 1:9).  It is also clear that, though forgiven, the record of these sins remains on heaven’s books until the end of time (Acts 3:19-21). Why aren’t the sins blotted out when forgiven? There is a very good reason.  The heavenly judgment is not complete until the judgment of the wicked takes place—immediately prior to their destruction at the end of the world.  If God destroyed the records before this final phase of the judgment, He could be accused of a massive cover-up.  All records of conduct remain open for viewing until the judgment is completed.

4. Some say the judgment took place at the cross.  Others say it takes place at death.  Can we be certain the timing for the judgment as shown in this Study Guide is correct? Yes.  To make it possible for us to be certain regarding the timing for the judgment, God clearly specified it three times in Daniel chapter 7.  Notice God’s specific timing.  God left no room for uncertainty.  The divine sequence is stated three times (verses 8-14, 20-22, 24-27) in this one chapter as follows:
A. The little horn power – ruled A.D. 538-1798.   (See Study Guide 15.)
B. The judgment – begins after 1798 (in 1844) and continues until Jesus’ second advent.
C. God’s new kingdom – established at the end of the judgment.
So God makes it clear that the judgment does not take place at death or at the cross, but between 1798 and Jesus’ second coming.  Remember that the first angel’s message is in part, “The hour of his judgment is come”. Revelation 14:6, 7.  God’s end-time people must be telling the world that the final judgment is in session now!

5. What important lessons can we learn from our study of the judgment? Notice the following five points:
A. God may seem to take a long time before He acts, but His timing is right.  No lost person will ever be able to say “I didn’t understand” or “I didn’t know”.
B. Satan and evil of all kinds will ultimately be dealt with by God in the judgment.  Since the judgment is God’s work and He has all the facts, we should stop judging others and let God do it.  It’s a serious matter for us to take over God’s work of judging.  It’s usurping His authority.
C. God leaves us all free to decide how we will relate to Him and who we will serve.  However, we must be prepared for serious consequences when we decide contrary to His Word.
D. God loves us so much that He has given us the books of Daniel and Revelation to make these end-time issues clear.  Our only safety lies in listening to Him and following His counsel from these great prophetic books.
E. Satan is determined to destroy every one of us.  His deceiving strategies are so effective and so convincing that all but a very few will be ensnared.  Without Jesus’ resurrection power in our lives daily to protect us from the devil’s traps, we will be devastated by Satan.
