Do you really believe in Eternal Judgment?
“If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners?” Proverbs 11:31 NLT
There is something so life-altering about having a true sense of God’s eternal judgment. You are forever changed by it. You live differently. You lose sleep over it. You see people differently. You make the decision of your life much different.
Jesus knew that unless He completed the mission of the Cross, we would all be hopelessly doomed to an eternity of judgment and separation from the presence of the Lord. This drove Him onward to Calvary. This kept His course clear and His mission sure. If Jesus was motivated by the thought of mankind suffering forever and ever in the lake of fire, then how much more should we embrace this gripping reality? It will shake you out of complacency. It will shift your priorities. It will change your conversations. It will redirect your life!
Though eternal judgment is not a popular topic in the Western Church or hardly ever mentioned from the pulpits of America, the fact remains the majority is blindly headed down “the broad way that leads to destruction”. Jesus said “many are they which choose the easy way”.
Don’t think most everyone is headed to heaven with the exception of Hitler and Stalin!
Takeaway: If you do not have a divine sense of the eternal judgment that awaits all who have refused to place their trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior then I encourage you today to seek it out. Dig into the Word and ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate this eternal reality to your heart.
Your mind will never fully grasp it but your heart will lay hold of it by faith.
