“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
“The LORD God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:8).
Now, for those among us who doubt, denounce or disagree with the word of God, our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ warns, saying: “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day” (John 12:48).
“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).
Therefore, do not be deceived into believing that somehow there is going to be a “rapture” to escape the Day of Judgment.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
When Jesus returns on the Last Day for the Day of Judgment, he is coming with the “firstfruits” redeemed from this earth who are the 144.000 saints (1 Thessalonians 3:13) (Revelation 6:9–11, 14:1, 4).
Jude explained how Enoch, who was “the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, ‘BEHOLD, THE LORD COMETH WITH TEN THOUSANDS OF HIS SAINTS, TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT UPON ALL, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” (Jude 1:14–15).
Paul clearly pointed out God’s redemption plan when he wrote, “Christ the [FIRSTFRUITS]; afterward they that are Christ’s [AT HIS COMING]” (1 Corinthians 15:23).
By the word of God, we have been warned that the time will come when many will not endure sound doctrine and will turn away their ears from the truth, which will be turned into fables (2 Timothy 4:3–4). Let us endure sound doctrine: the TRUTH.
