The Judge Standeth At The Door.............

The Judge Standeth At The Door

The time is speeding close where the final resolution of all things is at hand, there is suffering all throughout the world. All of creation is under the curse of sin.

God will reveal a more exact time before it happens because God said He will do NOTHING unless He reveals it to His servants FIRST.

"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealed His secret unto His servants the prophets."

Amos 3:7

God is NOT KEEPING ANY SECRETS FROM US. He is revealing to all of us that it is time to GET READY!! 

Endtime bible prophecy is unfolding and happening right now. God warned us that the events and situations that are going on right now in the world are the signs we were to look for right before the rapture of the church. We are not looking for any signs now. We are looking for Jesus!

"Now also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep in death, that you may not grieve for them as the rest do who have no hope beyond the grave. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him through Jesus those who have fallen asleep in death. For this we declare to you by the Lord's own word, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede into His presence or have any advantage at all over those who have previously fallen asleep in Him in death.

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first. Then we, the living ones who remain on the earth, shall simultaneously be caught up along with the resurrected dead in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord!

"Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words."

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18


"Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you safe from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth."

Revelation 3:10

Jesus is promising His Fundamental, uncompromising church that He will keep them from the "hour" of the worldwide Tribulation Period. The word "hour" is an earthbound term that has no meaning once you get outside of this dimension! For Jesus to fulfill His promise of keeping His Fundamental Church from the "hour" of the Tribulation means that He will have to pull us out of this dimension! The only way in which Jesus can fulfill His promise is to pull His genuinely Born Again believers out of this dimension, just as these wonderful verses, above, promise.

Suddenly, in one swift, intense instant, the jubilee moment of the waiting centuries, the descending Lord Himself shall shout. Up from the quiet valley, from sunlit hillsides, from village burying grounds, from the yawning depths of the sea, from the distant battlefields where Christian patriots have laid down their lives, from the jungles of India, from the swamps of Africa, from the islands of the sea, from every lonely spot where His children have passed away in suffering and service, shall the glorified, radiant host spring up to meet their coming Lord.

What a vision for tear-stained eyes; what a hope for waiting hearts; what a spur to lagging service!

While men and women walk the busy streets, they shall be caught up! While they bow in the secret chamber of prayer, they shall be caught up! While with burning hearts they ponder the Word that tells of His coming, they shall be caught up! While patient, suffering ones lie on beds of pain, they shall be caught up! While in the graves of the dead, they shall be caught up! And, as the startled world wonders, the only records left shall be that of Enoch's - 'And they walked with God, and were not, for God took them!'

It may be at morn, when the first faint flush of awakening day tints the horizon; it may be at high noon, when the busy world, deaf with the din of traffic, hears not His shout; or it may be at eventide, when the twilight hours are solemnizing the souls of His children with the hush of its own waiting. It matters not; for "the Lord is at hand"; "the judge standeth at the door."

We stand on the brink of the mightiest miracle of the miracle-working God since the resurrection of His Son from the dead.

"Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

As you pass through the trials and tribulations of your life, and as you tire of reading the violence and bloodshed of the Daily News, "comfort one another with these words"! Our Blessed Savior knew that the people of the generation that would see His return would endure much agony of spirit, an agony which would be intolerable.

Here is the most important reality of these last days: "the judge standeth at the door."

NEARER HOME

One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er:
I am nearer Home today -
Than I ever have been before-

Nearer my Fathers house
Where many mansions be,
Neater the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea,

Nearer the bound of life
Where we lay our burdens down,
Nearer leaving the cross,
Nearer gaining the crown!

But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night,
Is the silent unknown stream
That leads at last to the light.

Oh, if my mortal feet
Have almost gained the brink,
If I am nearer Home
Even today than I think,

Father, perfect my trust;
Let my spirit feel in death
That her feet are firmly set
On the rock of a living Faith
