We may have wondered at some time how it will be on Judgment Day, perhaps we have even felt fear and shame that the wrong we have done will be heard by all those who are before the throne and we feel shame and dismay just thinking about it. We imagine a court full of on lookers, all those who are righteous and we grieve at the thought that they will be witnesses to our past shameful misdeeds…
But there is some wonderful Truths in the Scriptures that we can hold onto which reveals a different picture.On this Day there will be no accusations for those who are in Christ Jesus so Satan or the Devil, the great liar and accuser of all of God’s Redeemed Children, will not be able to accuse us of any wrong we have done, the reason why is revealed in Scripture for all to see and one reason why is he will not be there to accuse us. (Psalms 1:5 & 5:4-10 -101:7
God is just and will forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness and so we will than walk in righteousness because our flesh nature has been put to death by The Holy Spirit as we chose to walk in His Love, The Fruit of The Spirit by His empowering with now having God’s seed or Nature and The mind of Christ.1 John 3:1-12 (9) No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
Isaiah 65 17 For, behold, I create new Heavens and a New earth and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
We hold onto this Truth and we don’t let Satan deceive us and cause us to fear, we remember that Jesus is our Defender and in Him we are set free, not just at the end of time, but everyday as we walk in Him which means we do not continue to sin because He does not sin and He gives us the Strength to resist any temptation that Satan my throw at us, none will be greater then we can resist as we walk in God’s Love and Satan flees because Love and evil can’t co-exist… God’s Love is the greatest Power in Heaven and on earth. “Jesus Christ Loves us with an everlasting Love. So we need to “repent from the heart” and be genuinely ‘sorry’ for all our sins previous, present and any we may commit in the future before we are perfected in Love and we need to turn from evil and do good not in our strength but the Lords, Jesus is our Heavenly Advocate and Eternal Friend and as we walk in Him we respond in Love as He did from our heart and not out of fear…
When we are in Christ Jesus and have been Born again ”There is nothing else that needs to be done. Jesus has done it all He died on the Cross so we might have eternal life and no shame on Judgment day, we have already passed from death to Life our Judgment is finished our accountability will be for rewards for the good we have done in Christ’s name.
As God’s redeemed Children all those He has known from the beginning of time by His foreknowledge of our heart’s repentance we have received His unmerited Mercy because of our willingness to accept the free gift of Salvation.
Judgment has been passed and we can say with confidence our Debt has indeed been paid in full.
