If we open the Bible the book of Daniel, then we’ll see the majestic picture of the heavenly trial: “I Saw at last that these were the thrones and the ancient of days sat… the judgment was set, and the books were opened” (Daniel 7:9, 10). What the book revealed to the judge?
This is stated in Revelation 20:12 Says, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and books were revealed, and another book opened which is the book of life; and they were judged, the dead were written in the books, according to their works”. The prophet Malachi adds, “in the face of His written a book of remembrance about those who fear the Lord and who esteem His name” (Malachi 3:16).
So, it turns out, my every deed, my every word and even every thought is recorded by the angels in a special book. Our life on earth can be likened to the big stage, which contemplates the whole universe. The most hidden sins, crimes, adultery, about which, as often seems to people, nobody knows, are the heritage of not one person, not groups of people, and the entire Universe! If we were to remember this, then perhaps the number of crimes and sins would be reduced millions of times. Because someone commits adultery or steal, knowing that it look at this moment millions of eyes? Each court makes a decision according to the current legislation, of the Constitution. There is a Constitution and God, which lives the whole universe and which are tried by the inhabitants of our planet and we are with you, dear reader. “He who rejects Me and does not receive My words has a judge; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day” (John 12:48).
So, each of us will be judged according to the Ten Commandments of God. Read carefully each commandment of the law of God set forth in Exodus, Chapter 20, do you keep them? Jesus Christ said that, not breaking the commandment physically, the person is guilty, if you mentally break the commandments: jealous, angry, hated, wanted another man’s wife, etc. the Apostle Paul gave a description of the qualities that will be saved: “Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance”, as well as the qualities that will close people’s access to eternity: “Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, strife, differences, [the temptations] heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries… those who do so will the Kingdom of God not shall inherit” (Galatians 5:19-23).
Exploring the theme of judgment, people often come to the conclusion that they cannot achieve the qualities of character and to get rid of all the negative. These same issues were of concern to the disciples of Jesus: “on Hearing this, His disciples were exceedingly amazed, saying, who then can be saved? And Jesus turned, and said unto them: with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:25, 26).
Thus, we are unable to save themselves, cannot by themselves and to comply with the Law of God, and the Lord understands this and promises us His help and strength, but if we accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, make Him a Covenant (agreement) by baptism, and will strive to live according to His Law in Ten Commandments. Salvation is by faith and only by faith, things are just a consequence: “it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). When we accept Jesus Christ into our lives, the Law of God we carry out not their own, but together with God, and things committed are not his, but His strength, and in this case, obedience to the Ten Commandments is for a person not an unbearable burden, but a natural and joyful lifestyle.
Today, according to Scripture, Jesus Christ intercedes for us, as for every person that comes to Him, before our Heavenly Father, for He is our Only Intercessor, Mediator, Lawyer at trial. In the sky is written, as mentioned above, the Book which recorded the names of those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior: “And do not enter into it (the heavenly Jerusalem — the capital of the Kingdom of God — approx. author) anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie: but they which are written in the lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 21:27).
Today in the sky considers the cases of people who died in the past century, but very soon will be considered and the things living on the earth today, that is our. Exploring the chapters of the Bible that speak about the time of the investigative judgment in heaven and the consequent the seven last plagues and the events that will occur just before the Second coming of Christ, we can conclude that the time is very little. All the forces that will participate in the last events of earth’s history and which are described in the Bible, already on the stage of history: with each passing day an increasing number of natural disasters — earthquakes, floods, catastrophes, wars, crimes, unprecedented decline of morals and morality, false Christs, and false prophets, and finally, the universal preaching of the gospel on our planet — the news of the soon coming of Christ. “And will be preached this gospel of the Kingdom in all the world for a witness unto all Nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).
To us the Lord did not reveal the day and hour of His Coming, but said, “So, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door… Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man… My Father only” (Matthew 24:33, 35, 36).
And today, not only believers, but even scientists atheists say that the laws of ecology the earth stands on the brink of destruction. The second coming of Christ will happen very soon, and time every inhabitant of our planet for the all-important choice of life is less. We don’t know what awaits us tomorrow, whether we live and whether we have the time and opportunity to make a decision on which will depend our eternal destiny. But let’s remember that time is of the habit of waiting for people, so the Lord through the prophet Isaiah again and again, drawn to each of us: “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6). Because after Jesus Christ finishes His mediatorial Ministry in the heavenly Sanctuary, the time will be gone, the earth will fall seven last plagues and the verdict of the Heavenly Court cannot be modified.
Will soon begin the hearing of my and your case, the outcome of which we can still influence today coming to Jesus Christ.
What we choose: eternal death or eternal life in the perfect Kingdom of God? In the Kingdom where there will be no death, tears, grief and disease, hatred and evil, where we can realize the most beautiful their plans and get the opportunity to travel across the Universe to do what you love, where we meet young living and our dead loved ones — mothers, fathers and children.
Where we find ourselves, today is dependent on each of us, but time continues to count down the last hours of earth’s history…
