THREE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT JESUS
by Eddie Lawrence

TEXT: 2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

1. HE WILL JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

-What do you base your standing before God upon? This will be what you are judged by.
-If it is law keeping,,,,no flesh shall be justified by works of law.
-If it is church attendance….no one is declared righteous based on church affilation.
-If it is good works….there is none righteous no not one.

Your salvation must rest upon the One that will judge you. Let him become your advocate. Trust in the finished work he carried out on your behalf on the cross. DO NOT STAND BEFORE GOD WITHOUT CHRIST!!

2. HE WILL RETURN

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

-His next coming is his second coming.
-John 14:1-6 He states that he is coming again.
-His delay does not mean he has decided not to return.
-His resurrection quarantees our resurrection.
-He will return and graves will open.
-Don’t get caught up in all the debate about when and how it will look, just be ready to be caught up by him into the clouds to be with Him forever.

If he returned today, would you be ready?
If so, are there others you love and know who are not ready? Are you living in such a way to encourage them toward trust in Christ?

3. HE WILL HAVE A KINGDOM

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

-He is not coming back to take sides, he is coming back to take over!
-He is Lord and King and therefore He has a kingdom.
-Does he rule as King in your heart today?
-In the throneroom of your soul, is he seated there as king?

Jesus will rule and reign and the righteous will rule and reign with him. Dear friend, make sure you are in the kingdom of light and not the kingdom of darkness.

CONCLUSION: Are you a citizen of the kingdom of God? If not, why not? Would you like to make that decision now? Are you looking forward to his return? Are you ready? Are you prepared o stand before God and the Lord Jesus Christ in Judgement? These are important matters where eternity awaits your answer…..
