The Judge

Acts Chapter 10 Verse 43     He is the One whom God appointed as Judge of the living and the dead.   

2 Timothy Chapter 4 Verse 1b   . . . Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead. . .

Revelation Chapter 19 Verse 11      And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.

John Chapter 5 Verse 24    Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

Below is an excerpt from 100 PORTRAITS OF CHRIST   by Henry Gariepy

The supreme sacrifice on Calvary requires a judgment.  The same cross that is a revelation of the love of God is also revelation of the wrath of God.   Nowhere do we see the judgment of God against sin as vividly as on Calvary.  The flaming sword at Eden’s entrance, the raging waters of the Deluge (flood), the blazing fires of Sodom—these and all God’s pronouncements do not as unmistakably proclaim God’s judgment against sin as does the Cross.  The One who died on the cross to save us from our sin will one day judge us for our response to His salvation and the life we have lived.

We will each someday appear before the judgment throne of God.  When we stand before Christ the Judge, may we be prepared by having known Him as Savior and Lord so that we will hear His words, “Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance” (Matthew 25:34).       – end of excerpt

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
