The worst thing for the personification of love is if He cannot express His overflowing love.
In Greek, the word for “worship” is “Proscuneo” which literally means come close to kiss.
The cross of Jesus did not make God good. God was already good.
It’s not right to believe that God is angry and Jesus is good.
God’s goodness was hindered, thwarted, held back because of man’s sin.
Remember John 3:16 - it was God that sent Jesus into the world to save us.
God never gave up on His dream of having a family.
When God wanted many sons, He gave us His only begotten Son.
Until you can appreciate the extent of God's judgment that Jesus suffered for us on the cross, you cannot appreciate the depths of God’s love.
Revelation 20:10-15 - The devil hates it when these verses are read. When the devil is gone, Jesus will rule and there will be no more sickness or disease.
As believers, our names are in the Book of Life.
Those who do not receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior during their lifetime will be assessed judicially according to their works. None of them will escape judgment.
“The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were 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 them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:10-15 NKJV)
John 5:24 - A believer can never come into judgement.
If any sermons/books/media teach that a believer can be condemned to hell, chuck it aside.
Believe in Jesus’ own words!
When a believer dies, the spirit is taken out of the body right before the moment of pain, and then he/she becomes more alive than before.
““Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” (John 5:24 NKJV)
The judgment seat of Christ is actually not a place of condemnation or judgment for sin.
It should be interpreted as the Bema Seat of Christ, a place where believers receive their rewards and positions in heaven from Jesus.
It is where believers receive their eternal rewards and we will already be standing at the Bema Seat of Christ in our glorified bodies after the Rapture.
