Now, there are many people holding to doctrines and beliefs that they will be “raptured” to heaven before the great period of tribulation.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED!
On the day that Jesus returns to this earth which will be the LAST DAY of habitation of life on this earth, EVERY human being will be Judged for EVERYTHING that we have done in our lifetime.
Our Lord Jesus warned, said: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). “[FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN]” (Matthew 22:14).
“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).
Except for the 144,000 servants or saints of God from the 12 tribes of Israel who are killed, and whose souls are the “…firstfruits…” to be redeemed to heaven (Revelation 6:9–11, 14:4), EVERYONE else will be here on EARTH to face the DAY OF JUDGMENT when
Jesus comes on the LAST DAY (1 Corinthians 15:23).
The Apostle Paul oftentimes reminded the congregations of the church that if any of them had a matter against another, they were to come before the saints, and not go to the law before the unjust in the world (1 Corinthians 6:1), because he said, “DO YE NOT KNOW THAT THE SAINTS SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD?” (1 Corinthians 6:2).
Jesus and his saints will not only judge the world they will also judge ANGELS IN HEAVEN (Revelation 14:4, 12, 20:4). Many people many not be aware of this fact. However, the Apostle Pual said: “Know ye not that [WE SHALL JUDGE ANGELS]? how much more things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:3).
In John’s vision, he reveals that the one hundred and forty four thousand servants or saints of God who are priests of God and of Christ are REIGNING IN HEAVEN when he wrote: “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an [HUNDRED FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND], having his Father’s name written in their foreheads” (Revelation 14:1).
The Holy Scriptures reveal that Mount Sion is “the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels” (Hebrews 12:22).
On the LAST DAY, AT END OF THE WORLD, THE DAY OF JUDGMENT Jesus, the High Priest is coming (Revelation 11:18) “…in his glory, and all the holy angels with him…” (Mathew 25:31) along with the one hundred and forty four thousand SAINTS or priests. 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]…”(Jude 1:14-15).
The Apostle Paul warned when he said: Work out your own [SALVATION] with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).
