Jude 13 Lunatic Lordship (Man-Centered) Salvation Pt 4
I. God's objective: bring about forgiven (redeemed/reconciled/justified), holy/saints (sanctified), who can be rewarded (glorified) epi (basis of) their HS motivated faithfulness, thus glorifying God when He gives them earned glory of The Age. Misunderstand: Repent; Faith, Forgiveness; Kgdm of Heaven; Eternal life; Hell; Wrath
Heb 11-brings about reward
II. We're hardwired by God to Fear (cf anxiety; avoid danger or loss of rlshp/etc); w/o it no obey nor other centered love, God pleasing service
Phil 2:12 obey..work out your salv w/ fear & trembling Heb 12:28 rcvg kgdm..have grace..serve God acceptably w/ carefulness and fear of loss
Heb 10:26 if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth...27 certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery fury/wrath which will consume the opposition. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy...29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thot worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common/profane thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. And again, "The LORD will judge His people Dt 32:36" 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
III. The Awesome God of Justice who is to be feared by both those in the light and darkness calls us to Discipleship and Self-denial for reward
Jn 8:12 Jesus:"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life 32 who believed...abide in word, know truth...set free Eph 5:8 you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
Jn 12:35 Jesus "A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. 46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.
1Jn 1:5 God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 say we have flshp with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
IV. Enemies killed; “Covered/Forgiven” Unprofitable Servants, Stewards, Sons and unholy? Sinners Excluded cf Ezk 45; Num 14
Mt 8:12 (Kgdm banquet) but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping & gnashing of teeth
Mt 22:7 killed rebels 12 Friend..in here w/o proper garments (either refused the host's offer or no fine linen/deeds) 13 king said to servants, 'Bind him hand-foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping & gnashing of teeth 14 many called few chosen/choice
Mt 25:30 And cast the unprofitable servant (buried responsibility) into the outer darkness. There will be weeping & gnashing of teeth.'
Mt 25:2 five were wise, and five foolish. 8 foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'
10 those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 11 'Lord, Lord, open to us!' 12 I do not know you.' 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming
Lk 12:22 to His disciples 31 seek kgdm of God...all added 32 little flock..give kgdm 33 sell...treasure 35 lamps burning 41 us or all
42 faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? 43 Blessed is THAT SERVANT whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44 Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. 45 But if THAT SERVANT says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, 46 the master of THAT SERVANT will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him (off from blessing) and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And THAT SERVANT who knew his master's will, and did not prepare himself or do acc to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.
Lk 13:18 kgdm 23 Lord, are there few who are saved? 24 Strive to enter thru the narrow gate... many will seek to enter and will not be able.
25...Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer 'I do not know you 27 Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.' 28 There will be weeping & gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham...all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out 29 from EWNS..sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last."
V. Glimpses of the Kingdom and the Eternal/Forever State of the New Heavens and New Earth (post lake of fire!!)
Rev 21:6 "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving/unfaithful, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part/inheritance Mt 24:51 Lk 15:12 Rev 20:6 in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. cf Rev 2-4 Overcomers -
Rev 20:4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and authority to judge NIV was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark...they lived and reigned with Christ for 1k years. 5 This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death 2:11; 20:14 21:8 lake of fire has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him 1k years.
Rev 22:3...His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5...Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. 7 Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book 12 Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one acc to his work. 13 Blessed are those who do His commandments (Jn 14:15; Phil 2:13), that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter thru the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
