  • In other words, He's sayingyou're gonna need it.
  • 00:00:06.256 --> 00:00:07.791
  • Do you realize some of youaren't going to have any money
  • 00:00:07.891 --> 00:00:09.426
  • when you get to heaven, becauseyou put more in your IRA
  • 00:00:09.526 --> 00:00:12.595

  • ROBERT: We're in a seriescalled, “Eternity: Your Choice”,
  • 00:00:29.145 --> 00:00:33.716
  • and I want to emphasize to youthat it is your choice
  • 00:00:33.817 --> 00:00:37.720
  • where you spend eternity.God gave you a free will.
  • 00:00:37.821 --> 00:00:40.690
  • We talked aboutthat last weekend.
  • 00:00:40.790 --> 00:00:42.192
  • He's not gonna override yourwill before you get saved,
  • 00:00:42.292 --> 00:00:45.762
  • or by the way,after you get saved.
  • 00:00:45.862 --> 00:00:48.164
  • Even after you come to Christ,you have a choice
  • 00:00:48.264 --> 00:00:50.433
  • as to whether you're goinglive for Christ or not,
  • 00:00:50.533 --> 00:00:52.936
  • or continue downthe wrong lifestyle.
  • 00:00:53.036 --> 00:00:54.771
  • So, the other thing I wantyou to know is as I say
  • 00:00:54.871 --> 00:00:59.008
  • it is your choice,and we talked about
  • 00:00:59.109 --> 00:01:00.777
  • that last weekend,“Whosoever Will”,
  • 00:01:00.877 --> 00:01:02.579
  • this weekend I want to talkabout “Where and How.”
  • 00:01:02.679 --> 00:01:08.017
  • In other words, where you spendeternity is your choice,
  • 00:01:08.118 --> 00:01:11.688
  • and how you spend eternityis your choice.
  • 00:01:11.788 --> 00:01:16.226
  • Now, we're saved by graceand grace alone,
  • 00:01:16.326 --> 00:01:20.230
  • but there are a whole bunchof Scriptures on being judged
  • 00:01:20.330 --> 00:01:23.967
  • for our works in the Bible.
  • 00:01:24.067 --> 00:01:26.269
  • So, how do youmarry the two?
  • 00:01:26.369 --> 00:01:27.637
  • Many believers think,“Well, once you get saved,
  • 00:01:27.737 --> 00:01:30.573
  • then your worksaren't judged anymore.”
  • 00:01:30.673 --> 00:01:33.076
  • But, please hear me,your works are still judged,
  • 00:01:33.176 --> 00:01:36.346
  • but you're not savedby your works,
  • 00:01:36.446 --> 00:01:38.581
  • you're saved by grace.
  • 00:01:38.681 --> 00:01:39.883
  • So, I'm gonna show you todayhow to marry those two things.
  • 00:01:39.983 --> 00:01:41.651
  • In order to understand this,you have to understand
  • 00:01:41.751 --> 00:01:44.687
  • two words, and those wordsare point number one.
  • 00:01:44.787 --> 00:01:47.056
  • Point number one,you have to understand:
  • 00:01:47.157 --> 00:01:51.895
  • 'Belief and Behavior,"belief and behavior.
  • 00:01:51.995 --> 00:01:53.163
  • Your belief determineswhere you spend eternity.
  • 00:01:53.263 --> 00:01:59.269
  • Your belief determineswhere you spend eternity.
  • 00:01:59.369 --> 00:02:01.804
  • Your behavior determineshow you spend eternity,
  • 00:02:01.905 --> 00:02:07.944
  • and I'm gonna show you thereare degrees of punishment
  • 00:02:08.044 --> 00:02:12.682
  • in hell for unbelievers,because God is a just God,
  • 00:02:12.782 --> 00:02:16.052
  • so He's goingto judge righteously,
  • 00:02:16.152 --> 00:02:18.154
  • and there are degreesor levels of responsibility
  • 00:02:18.254 --> 00:02:23.193
  • in heaven for believers.
  • 00:02:23.293 --> 00:02:25.595
  • If you remember, Jesus saidto one, He's going to say,
  • 00:02:25.695 --> 00:02:28.631
  • “You'll be rulerover five cities.”
  • 00:02:28.731 --> 00:02:30.967
  • To another, He said, “You'll beruler over ten cities.”
  • 00:02:31.067 --> 00:02:33.703
  • So, there are levelsof responsibility in heaven,
  • 00:02:33.803 --> 00:02:36.239
  • dependent upon how you live.
  • 00:02:36.339 --> 00:02:38.641
  • How much responsibilityyou take on earth
  • 00:02:38.741 --> 00:02:40.443
  • will be dependent uponthe responsibility
  • 00:02:40.543 --> 00:02:42.712
  • you have in heaven.
  • 00:02:42.812 --> 00:02:44.013
  • So, but I want to establish,this is the whole thing
  • 00:02:44.113 --> 00:02:46.549
  • of grace and works.
  • 00:02:46.649 --> 00:02:47.984
  • Works, ourbehavior, matters.
  • 00:02:48.084 --> 00:02:49.953
  • Whether you're lostor saved, every person,
  • 00:02:50.053 --> 00:02:52.989
  • unbelievers and believers,will be judged by their works,
  • 00:02:53.089 --> 00:02:55.892
  • but your salvationis by grace alone.
  • 00:02:55.992 --> 00:02:59.195
  • Your belief determineswhere you spend eternity.
  • 00:02:59.295 --> 00:03:01.164
  • Let me just remind you ofthis Scripture, Ephesians 2:8-9.
  • 00:03:01.264 --> 00:03:04.300
  • “For by grace you havebeen saved, through faith,
  • 00:03:04.400 --> 00:03:10.240
  • and that not ofyourselves..."
  • 00:03:10.340 --> 00:03:11.774
  • Not of yourselves.
  • 00:03:11.874 --> 00:03:13.243
  • You responded to God'sfaith, but it's grace.
  • 00:03:13.343 --> 00:03:16.546
  • “It is the gift,”and a gift is free
  • 00:03:16.646 --> 00:03:20.083
  • because it's alreadybeen paid for.
  • 00:03:20.183 --> 00:03:21.351
  • I mean, someone paid for thegift, but to you, it's free.
  • 00:03:21.451 --> 00:03:24.420
  • “That it is the gift of God,not of works,
  • 00:03:24.520 --> 00:03:30.126
  • lest anyone should boast.”
  • 00:03:30.226 --> 00:03:31.694
  • I love the phrase,“lest anyone should boast.”
  • 00:03:31.794 --> 00:03:33.529
  • No one in heavenis going to be saying,
  • 00:03:33.630 --> 00:03:36.599
  • “I got myself here.”
  • 00:03:36.699 --> 00:03:40.436
  • Everyone is going to realize,this is grace that I got here.
  • 00:03:40.536 --> 00:03:44.874
  • This is the grace of God.
  • 00:03:44.974 --> 00:03:46.909
  • I was lost, had no intentionof coming to Christ,
  • 00:03:47.010 --> 00:03:48.578
  • was going my own way, and God,by His grace, intervened,
  • 00:03:48.678 --> 00:03:53.650
  • and I responded in faithand accepted His free gift.
  • 00:03:53.750 --> 00:03:56.819
  • You follow me?
  • 00:03:56.919 --> 00:03:57.854
  • So, but there are allof these Scriptures.
  • 00:03:57.954 --> 00:04:00.223
  • So, we're saved by grace,but there are all these
  • 00:04:00.323 --> 00:04:01.791
  • Scriptures on worksand being judged by works.
  • 00:04:01.891 --> 00:04:04.861
  • Let me show you just a few.
  • 00:04:04.961 --> 00:04:06.396
  • We'll get to 1 Corinthians3 in a little while.
  • 00:04:06.496 --> 00:04:09.299
  • Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For Godwill bring every work..."
  • 00:04:09.399 --> 00:04:16.172
  • you know, I don't do this often,but would you mind
  • 00:04:16.272 --> 00:04:17.874
  • just saying the word, “every”?Okay, how many is every?
  • 00:04:17.974 --> 00:04:22.679
  • Okay, let's keep going.
  • 00:04:22.779 --> 00:04:24.280
  • “Every work into judgment,including every secret thing,
  • 00:04:24.380 --> 00:04:28.518
  • whether good or evil.”
  • 00:04:28.618 --> 00:04:31.587
  • Revelation 20:13:“The sea gave up
  • 00:04:31.688 --> 00:04:34.490
  • the dead who were in it,and Death and Hades
  • 00:04:34.590 --> 00:04:35.958
  • delivered up the deadwho were in them.
  • 00:04:36.059 --> 00:04:37.527
  • And they were judged each..."would you mind
  • 00:04:37.627 --> 00:04:41.130
  • saying the word, “each”?
  • 00:04:41.230 --> 00:04:43.366
  • “Each one accordingto his works.”
  • 00:04:43.466 --> 00:04:45.935
  • Now you might say, “Well, that'stalking about unbelievers.”
  • 00:04:46.035 --> 00:04:47.904
  • Well, let me show you onethat's talking about believers.
  • 00:04:48.004 --> 00:04:50.840
  • 1 Peter 1:17, “And if youcall on the Father..."
  • 00:04:50.940 --> 00:04:54.944
  • Okay, let me just see by hands,how many of you
  • 00:04:55.044 --> 00:04:58.481
  • call on the Father?
  • 00:04:58.581 --> 00:04:59.849
  • Can I see your hands?Okay, so this is to you.
  • 00:04:59.949 --> 00:05:03.886
  • “If you call on the Father,who without partiality judges
  • 00:05:03.986 --> 00:05:08.524
  • according to each one's work,
  • 00:05:08.624 --> 00:05:12.562
  • conduct yourselvesthroughout the time
  • 00:05:12.662 --> 00:05:15.198
  • of your stay here in fear”,in awe, in reverence of God.
  • 00:05:15.298 --> 00:05:21.270
  • Here's Jesus' ownwords, Matthew 16:27.
  • 00:05:21.371 --> 00:05:24.073
  • “For the Son of Man willcome in the glory of His Father
  • 00:05:24.173 --> 00:05:26.442
  • with His angels, and thenHe will reward each,”
  • 00:05:26.542 --> 00:05:31.848
  • would you mindsaying “each” again?
  • 00:05:31.948 --> 00:05:34.417
  • “According to his works.”
  • 00:05:34.517 --> 00:05:36.919
  • Revelation 22:12,this is also Jesus speaking,
  • 00:05:37.019 --> 00:05:40.089
  • if it's Himthe Book of Revelation.
  • 00:05:40.189 --> 00:05:41.524
  • It's Him speaking to Johnon the island of Patmos.
  • 00:05:41.624 --> 00:05:44.193
  • This is in redin your Bible.
  • 00:05:44.293 --> 00:05:46.362
  • This is in the lastchapter of the Bible.
  • 00:05:46.462 --> 00:05:48.264
  • “And behold,I am coming quickly,
  • 00:05:48.364 --> 00:05:51.667
  • and My reward is with Meto give to every one
  • 00:05:51.768 --> 00:05:57.740
  • according to his work.”
  • 00:05:57.840 --> 00:06:01.444
  • Okay, are you an “every”?Are you an “each”?
  • 00:06:01.544 --> 00:06:06.916
  • And He said,“according to his work.”
  • 00:06:07.016 --> 00:06:09.252
  • What I'm telling youis it matters how you live.
  • 00:06:09.352 --> 00:06:12.688
  • Now, let me say it again.
  • 00:06:12.789 --> 00:06:13.756
  • Your belief determineswhere you spend eternity.
  • 00:06:13.856 --> 00:06:17.293
  • Your behavior determineshow you spend eternity.
  • 00:06:17.393 --> 00:06:20.997
  • Now, all of us don'thave perfect behavior.
  • 00:06:21.097 --> 00:06:24.267
  • I mean, we all still makemistakes on this earth,
  • 00:06:24.367 --> 00:06:27.270
  • so don't get too hung upon perfect behavior,
  • 00:06:27.370 --> 00:06:29.739
  • because you'll never get there.But, let me say something.
  • 00:06:29.839 --> 00:06:32.909
  • Your belief, though,determines your behavior.
  • 00:06:33.009 --> 00:06:36.446
  • So, there are people who saythey believe in Jesus,
  • 00:06:36.546 --> 00:06:39.115
  • but they've never lived for Him.Please hear me.
  • 00:06:39.215 --> 00:06:42.752
  • I don't think youreally believe.
  • 00:06:42.852 --> 00:06:45.455
  • I really don't.
  • 00:06:45.555 --> 00:06:46.689
  • Because when you believe,the Bible says God gives you
  • 00:06:46.789 --> 00:06:49.158
  • a new heart and you havea desire to turn from sin
  • 00:06:49.258 --> 00:06:54.030
  • and to turn to God.
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:55.331
  • You have a desireto follow God.
  • 00:06:55.431 --> 00:06:57.066
  • You don't want todo those things.
  • 00:06:57.166 --> 00:06:58.367
  • I'm not saying that you neverfall, but you don't want to.
  • 00:06:58.468 --> 00:07:01.237
  • You want to goa different way.
  • 00:07:01.337 --> 00:07:02.238
  • If you still want to godo those things,
  • 00:07:02.338 --> 00:07:03.906
  • there's something wrong andyour heart hasn't been changed.
  • 00:07:04.006 --> 00:07:06.742
  • Your belief determinesyour behavior.
  • 00:07:06.843 --> 00:07:08.144
  • This guy said to me one time,“Pastor, I believe in tithing,
  • 00:07:08.244 --> 00:07:11.614
  • I just don't do it.”
  • 00:07:11.714 --> 00:07:15.885
  • So, I decided I would just kindof respond in kind.
  • 00:07:15.985 --> 00:07:18.321
  • I said, “I understand.
  • 00:07:18.421 --> 00:07:19.589
  • I believe in bathing,I just don't do it.”
  • 00:07:19.689 --> 00:07:24.160
  • Now, I do bathe, okay,but I was just joking with him,
  • 00:07:24.260 --> 00:07:27.196
  • because it's ridiculous!
  • 00:07:27.296 --> 00:07:30.233
  • If you believesomething, you do it!
  • 00:07:30.333 --> 00:07:32.535
  • So, if you really believethat if you tithe,
  • 00:07:32.635 --> 00:07:34.871
  • God opens the windowsof heaven over your family
  • 00:07:34.971 --> 00:07:37.773
  • and rebukes the devourerfor your sake, then you do it!
  • 00:07:37.874 --> 00:07:41.711
  • You just do it.
  • 00:07:41.811 --> 00:07:42.778
  • [Applause]
  • 00:07:42.879 --> 00:07:44.480
  • But if you don't do it,it's because you don't believe
  • 00:07:44.580 --> 00:07:47.817
  • what the Bible says.That's clear.
  • 00:07:47.917 --> 00:07:50.086
  • So, our belief determinesour behaviors, okay?
  • 00:07:50.186 --> 00:07:53.155
  • So, now I want to show youthe believer's judgment
  • 00:07:53.256 --> 00:07:55.992
  • and the unbeliever's judgment.
  • 00:07:56.092 --> 00:07:57.960
  • And many people don't realizewhy there are two judgments
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:08:00.429
  • if it's already determinedwhether you're going
  • 00:08:00.530 --> 00:08:03.366
  • to heaven or hellby your belief -- because,
  • 00:08:03.466 --> 00:08:05.434
  • at the believer's judgment,everybody's a believer.
  • 00:08:05.535 --> 00:08:07.670
  • At the unbeliever's judgment,everybody's an unbeliever.
  • 00:08:07.770 --> 00:08:10.573
  • So you say, “Well,why is there a judgment?”
  • 00:08:10.673 --> 00:08:12.542
  • Because your works are beingjudged, at each judgment.
  • 00:08:12.642 --> 00:08:16.112
  • So, point number two is:The Judgment Seat of Christ.
  • 00:08:16.212 --> 00:08:20.716
  • The JudgementSeat of Christ.
  • 00:08:20.816 --> 00:08:22.418
  • This is thebeliever's judgment.
  • 00:08:22.518 --> 00:08:25.821
  • Let me show yousome Scriptures.
  • 00:08:25.922 --> 00:08:26.989
  • 2 Corinthians 5:10:“For we must all..."
  • 00:08:27.089 --> 00:08:32.061
  • would you mindsaying the word “all”?
  • 00:08:32.161 --> 00:08:34.997
  • “We must all”, this is writtento believers now.
  • 00:08:35.097 --> 00:08:37.934
  • “We must all appear beforethe judgment seat of Christ,
  • 00:08:38.034 --> 00:08:43.105
  • that each”, I'm not gonnaask you to say it,
  • 00:08:43.205 --> 00:08:45.274
  • just say it in your mind.
  • 00:08:45.374 --> 00:08:46.642
  • “That each one may receivethe things done in the body”,
  • 00:08:46.742 --> 00:08:51.681
  • in other words, whenyou were on this earth,
  • 00:08:51.781 --> 00:08:53.516
  • “according to what he has done,whether good or bad.”
  • 00:08:53.616 --> 00:08:58.220
  • Now, let meclarify something.
  • 00:08:58.321 --> 00:09:00.590
  • We're not judged for our sins,because Jesus already
  • 00:09:00.690 --> 00:09:04.160
  • took our judgment.
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.429
  • But we are judged forour works, and we will,
  • 00:09:06.529 --> 00:09:08.898
  • according to the Bible,either receive a reward
  • 00:09:08.998 --> 00:09:12.101
  • or lose a reward, becauseof how we did it. Okay?
  • 00:09:12.201 --> 00:09:15.538
  • So, we'll talk aboutthat in a moment.
  • 00:09:15.638 --> 00:09:17.073
  • Romans 14:10, “But why doyou judge your brother?
  • 00:09:17.173 --> 00:09:20.576
  • Or why do you showcontempt for your brother?
  • 00:09:20.676 --> 00:09:22.278
  • For we shall all stand beforethe judgment seat of Christ.”
  • 00:09:22.378 --> 00:09:27.316
  • 1 Corinthians 3,I told you to turn
  • 00:09:27.416 --> 00:09:29.752
  • there if you wanted to,Verse 10.
  • 00:09:29.852 --> 00:09:31.487
  • We're gonna readfive verses.
  • 00:09:31.587 --> 00:09:32.822
  • “According to the grace of God,which was given to me”,
  • 00:09:32.922 --> 00:09:35.658
  • this is Paul speaking,“as a wise master builder
  • 00:09:35.758 --> 00:09:39.061
  • I have laid the foundation,and another builds on it.”
  • 00:09:39.161 --> 00:09:43.299
  • Now, he's actuallyreferring to you,
  • 00:09:43.399 --> 00:09:45.134
  • or to the Corinthian Churchhere that he wrote to,
  • 00:09:45.234 --> 00:09:47.036
  • or to believers.
  • 00:09:47.136 --> 00:09:48.170
  • “But let each one”,each believer,
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:51.774
  • “take heed how he builds on it”,‘cause these are people
  • 00:09:51.874 --> 00:09:54.210
  • who have gotten saved now,accepted Christ.
  • 00:09:54.310 --> 00:09:56.545
  • “For no other foundationcan anyone lay
  • 00:09:56.646 --> 00:09:59.348
  • than that which is laid,which is Jesus Christ.”
  • 00:09:59.448 --> 00:10:01.283
  • So, the foundation is Jesus.People have accepted Jesus.
  • 00:10:01.384 --> 00:10:04.687
  • But, watch that you canbuild with two different
  • 00:10:04.787 --> 00:10:08.057
  • types, categories,of materials:
  • 00:10:08.157 --> 00:10:09.558
  • temporal or eternal.
  • 00:10:09.659 --> 00:10:11.494
  • “Now if anyone builds onthis foundation with gold,
  • 00:10:11.594 --> 00:10:14.664
  • silver, precious stones,”those would go through the fire,
  • 00:10:14.764 --> 00:10:18.768
  • but watch these three,“wood, hay, straw”.
  • 00:10:18.868 --> 00:10:22.271
  • Those would beburned up, temporal.
  • 00:10:22.371 --> 00:10:24.707
  • “Each one's work will becomeclear, for the Day”,
  • 00:10:24.807 --> 00:10:29.745
  • it's capitalized because it'sreferring to the Judgment Day
  • 00:10:29.845 --> 00:10:32.481
  • or the second coming,either way, “will declare it,
  • 00:10:32.581 --> 00:10:36.452
  • because it will berevealed by fire,
  • 00:10:36.552 --> 00:10:39.455
  • and the fire will test eachone's work, of what sort it is.
  • 00:10:39.555 --> 00:10:44.894
  • If anyone's work whichhe has built on it endures,
  • 00:10:44.994 --> 00:10:48.197
  • he will receive a reward.”Receive a reward.
  • 00:10:48.297 --> 00:10:53.502
  • “If anyone's work is burned,he will suffer loss.”
  • 00:10:53.602 --> 00:10:57.940
  • He loses the reward.Watch.
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:59.742
  • “But he himself”,this is grace, “will be saved,
  • 00:10:59.842 --> 00:11:06.248
  • yet so as through fire.”
  • 00:11:06.348 --> 00:11:08.617
  • Okay, let me give youa little bit of information
  • 00:11:08.718 --> 00:11:10.753
  • about this passage, all right?
  • 00:11:10.853 --> 00:11:13.089
  • He's addressing some thingsbecause they're beginning
  • 00:11:13.189 --> 00:11:15.591
  • to say, “Well, you know,I got saved by Apollos,
  • 00:11:15.691 --> 00:11:18.327
  • so my foundation's Apollos,and your foundation is Paul.”
  • 00:11:18.427 --> 00:11:21.630
  • And he says, “Nope,the foundation is Jesus.”
  • 00:11:21.731 --> 00:11:25.668
  • It doesn't matterwho led you to Christ,
  • 00:11:25.768 --> 00:11:27.536
  • the foundation is Jesus.But, now you have a choice.
  • 00:11:27.636 --> 00:11:31.507
  • That's my whole burdenin this series,
  • 00:11:31.607 --> 00:11:33.743
  • is you have a choice.
  • 00:11:33.843 --> 00:11:35.044
  • You have a choicewhether to accept Christ
  • 00:11:35.144 --> 00:11:36.679
  • and you have a choicewhether you're gonna live
  • 00:11:36.779 --> 00:11:37.813
  • for Christ or not.So, you have a choice.
  • 00:11:37.913 --> 00:11:41.317
  • He says now I'm telling you,you have a choice,
  • 00:11:41.417 --> 00:11:44.019
  • because even though you haveJesus Christ as your foundation,
  • 00:11:44.120 --> 00:11:47.123
  • you can do some things thatare gonna last for all eternity
  • 00:11:47.223 --> 00:11:50.259
  • and you'll be rewarded,and you can do some things
  • 00:11:50.359 --> 00:11:52.595
  • in your lifethat'll be burned up,
  • 00:11:52.695 --> 00:11:54.597
  • yet by grace you'll be saved,but you won't have
  • 00:11:54.697 --> 00:11:57.333
  • any rewards in heaven.
  • 00:11:57.433 --> 00:11:59.802
  • You won't have anythingto show for your life
  • 00:11:59.902 --> 00:12:01.203
  • here on this earth.
  • 00:12:01.303 --> 00:12:02.204
  • Okay, so here's Jesus now,saying the exact
  • 00:12:02.304 --> 00:12:05.174
  • same thing almost.
  • 00:12:05.274 --> 00:12:06.642
  • Matthew 6, this is inthe Sermon on the Mount.
  • 00:12:06.742 --> 00:12:08.844
  • Matthew 6:1, “Take heedthat you do not do
  • 00:12:08.944 --> 00:12:13.783
  • your charitable deedsbefore men”, watch,
  • 00:12:13.883 --> 00:12:17.052
  • “to be seen by them.
  • 00:12:17.153 --> 00:12:18.387
  • Otherwise, you have no reward”,if that's your motive,
  • 00:12:18.487 --> 00:12:22.558
  • “from your Father in heaven.
  • 00:12:22.658 --> 00:12:23.659
  • Therefore, when you doa charitable deed,
  • 00:12:23.759 --> 00:12:25.294
  • do not sound a trumpetbefore you as the hypocrites
  • 00:12:25.394 --> 00:12:28.330
  • do in the synagoguesand in the streets,
  • 00:12:28.430 --> 00:12:30.699
  • that they may haveglory from men.
  • 00:12:30.800 --> 00:12:33.903
  • Assuredly, I say to you,they have their reward.”
  • 00:12:34.003 --> 00:12:36.372
  • In other words,it's a temporary reward.
  • 00:12:36.472 --> 00:12:38.407
  • It's only on this earth.
  • 00:12:38.507 --> 00:12:39.809
  • “But when you doa charitable deed,
  • 00:12:39.909 --> 00:12:41.143
  • do not let your left hand knowwhat your right hand is doing,
  • 00:12:41.243 --> 00:12:43.345
  • that your charitable deedmay be in secret,
  • 00:12:43.445 --> 00:12:45.781
  • and your Father”, your Father,“who sees in secret
  • 00:12:45.881 --> 00:12:51.387
  • will Himself..." I love the“Himselfs” in the New Testament.
  • 00:12:51.487 --> 00:12:57.860
  • Just read the “Himselfs'when it talks about
  • 00:12:57.960 --> 00:12:59.461
  • the Father, or Jesus,or the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:59.562 --> 00:13:01.263
  • “Will Himselfreward you openly.”
  • 00:13:01.363 --> 00:13:08.170
  • Okay, let me tell youwhat you just read
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:09.638
  • that you might have missed.
  • 00:13:09.738 --> 00:13:11.340
  • You are going to getto meet the Father
  • 00:13:11.440 --> 00:13:14.743
  • one day, personally.
  • 00:13:14.844 --> 00:13:17.613
  • The Father Himselfwill reward you
  • 00:13:17.713 --> 00:13:24.220
  • openly in frontof everyone else.
  • 00:13:24.320 --> 00:13:30.025
  • What motivation to livea godly life and to serve
  • 00:13:30.125 --> 00:13:34.930
  • our Lord on this earth, ‘causewe're gonna receive rewards.
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:40.169
  • Let me show you a Scripturethat puzzles some,
  • 00:13:40.269 --> 00:13:42.404
  • unless you understand aboutthat our works matter, okay?
  • 00:13:42.504 --> 00:13:46.508
  • 1 John 2:28, “And now,little children”,
  • 00:13:46.609 --> 00:13:50.145
  • this is written to believers,“abide in Him.”
  • 00:13:50.246 --> 00:13:53.015
  • Obviously, unbelieverscould not abide in Him.
  • 00:13:53.115 --> 00:13:55.217
  • “Abide in Himthat when He appears,
  • 00:13:55.317 --> 00:14:00.556
  • we may have confidence”,watch this now, believers,
  • 00:14:00.656 --> 00:14:03.859
  • “and not be ashamedbefore Him at His coming.”
  • 00:14:03.959 --> 00:14:08.330
  • That's pretty strong!
  • 00:14:08.430 --> 00:14:10.966
  • Okay, how woulda believer be ashamed?
  • 00:14:11.066 --> 00:14:12.935
  • I can tell you how a believerwould be ashamed,
  • 00:14:13.035 --> 00:14:14.236
  • because he's notliving for Jesus.
  • 00:14:14.336 --> 00:14:16.972
  • He's not layinghis life down.
  • 00:14:17.072 --> 00:14:18.073
  • He might realize,I wasted my life.
  • 00:14:18.173 --> 00:14:21.944
  • I could have helpedother people.
  • 00:14:22.044 --> 00:14:23.178
  • I could have lived for Jesus,but I lived for myself.
  • 00:14:23.279 --> 00:14:25.748
  • Even though I did believethat Jesus was the Son of God
  • 00:14:25.848 --> 00:14:27.883
  • and I walked with God's Son,I never really fully
  • 00:14:27.983 --> 00:14:30.052
  • gave Him everything.
  • 00:14:30.152 --> 00:14:32.154
  • And they would beashamed at his coming.
  • 00:14:32.254 --> 00:14:34.390
  • So it matters how you live.
  • 00:14:34.490 --> 00:14:36.525
  • So you need to understand,belief and behavior,
  • 00:14:36.625 --> 00:14:38.427
  • the judgment seat of Christ,and here's the third point:
  • 00:14:38.527 --> 00:14:41.463
  • The Great White Throne Judgment.
  • 00:14:41.563 --> 00:14:44.400
  • The Great White Throne Judgementis for all unbelievers.
  • 00:14:44.500 --> 00:14:47.536
  • Now I want to show you,theologically,
  • 00:14:47.636 --> 00:14:50.639
  • why we call this the great whitethrone judgment, all right?
  • 00:14:50.739 --> 00:14:54.343
  • Revelation 20:11, “Then Isaw a great white throne.”
  • 00:14:54.443 --> 00:15:02.051
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:15:02.151 --> 00:15:07.990
  • See, there's this greatwhite throne,
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:15.130
  • so we call it the great whitethrone judgment.
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:20.569
  • I'm not making fun of the Bible,I just, you know,
  • 00:15:20.669 --> 00:15:22.938
  • that's just all theologianscould come up with,
  • 00:15:23.038 --> 00:15:24.440
  • "Let's call it the greatwhite throne," Okay.
  • 00:15:24.540 --> 00:15:28.577
  • “Then I saw a great whitethrone and Him who sat on it,
  • 00:15:28.677 --> 00:15:32.147
  • from whose face the earthand the heaven fled away.
  • 00:15:32.247 --> 00:15:34.817
  • And there was foundno place for them.
  • 00:15:34.917 --> 00:15:36.552
  • And I saw the dead, smalland great, standing before God”,
  • 00:15:36.652 --> 00:15:39.688
  • now watch carefully.
  • 00:15:39.788 --> 00:15:41.857
  • Watch the tense,tenses of these two words,
  • 00:15:41.957 --> 00:15:45.361
  • “and books”, plural,so more than one,
  • 00:15:45.461 --> 00:15:48.497
  • “books were opened.
  • 00:15:48.597 --> 00:15:50.699
  • And another book”,singular, “was opened,
  • 00:15:50.799 --> 00:15:55.137
  • which is the Book of Life.
  • 00:15:55.237 --> 00:15:58.574
  • And the dead were judged,"watch this,
  • 00:15:58.674 --> 00:16:01.110
  • “according to their works,by the things
  • 00:16:01.210 --> 00:16:04.380
  • which were writtenin the books.”
  • 00:16:04.480 --> 00:16:06.582
  • That tells you rightthere what was written
  • 00:16:06.682 --> 00:16:08.050
  • in the books, works.
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:09.618
  • “The sea gave up the deadwho were in it,
  • 00:16:09.718 --> 00:16:11.453
  • and Death and Hades delivered upthe dead who were in them,
  • 00:16:11.553 --> 00:16:13.455
  • and they were judged, each oneaccording to his works.”
  • 00:16:13.555 --> 00:16:17.159
  • Okay, so it's real clearto see it's the book
  • 00:16:17.259 --> 00:16:19.695
  • is the Book of Life.
  • 00:16:19.795 --> 00:16:21.196
  • And the book, if you want toknow what the book has in it,
  • 00:16:21.296 --> 00:16:23.298
  • it has names.
  • 00:16:23.399 --> 00:16:24.500
  • And if your name is writtenin the Book of Life,
  • 00:16:24.600 --> 00:16:28.070
  • you go to heaven.
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:29.571
  • If it's not,you don't go to heaven,
  • 00:16:29.671 --> 00:16:30.806
  • and all of us would say,“Well, I want my name
  • 00:16:30.906 --> 00:16:33.108
  • written in the Book of Life.”It's great.
  • 00:16:33.208 --> 00:16:35.144
  • Accept Jesus Christas your Savior...
  • 00:16:35.244 --> 00:16:37.980
  • "Whosoever will."
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:39.815
  • You can accept Jesus Christas your Lord and Savior,
  • 00:16:39.915 --> 00:16:41.750
  • and your name is writtenin the Book of Life.
  • 00:16:41.850 --> 00:16:44.186
  • But then thereare books, plural,
  • 00:16:44.286 --> 00:16:46.355
  • because there'smore than just names,
  • 00:16:46.455 --> 00:16:48.023
  • it's works, and you're judged atthe great white throne judgment
  • 00:16:48.123 --> 00:16:52.995
  • by the works, by what'swritten in the books.
  • 00:16:53.095 --> 00:16:57.199
  • It's very importantto understand this.
  • 00:16:57.299 --> 00:16:58.534
  • So, am I saying thenthat there are degrees
  • 00:16:58.634 --> 00:17:05.074
  • of punishment in hell?
  • 00:17:05.174 --> 00:17:06.942
  • Yes, I am, in the same waythat there are levels
  • 00:17:07.042 --> 00:17:09.978
  • of responsibility in heaven.
  • 00:17:10.079 --> 00:17:11.980
  • Well, let me ask you a question,because God's a righteous judge.
  • 00:17:12.081 --> 00:17:16.285
  • Will a man, a believer,let's talk about a believer.
  • 00:17:16.385 --> 00:17:19.388
  • Will a believer who is saved,but doesn't tithe,
  • 00:17:19.488 --> 00:17:24.059
  • doesn't witness, doesn't serve,doesn't really do anything
  • 00:17:24.159 --> 00:17:28.697
  • to build the kingdomon this earth -
  • 00:17:28.797 --> 00:17:30.032
  • will he receive the same rewardsas the believer who tithes,
  • 00:17:30.132 --> 00:17:35.838
  • loves, serves, winspeople to Christ?
  • 00:17:35.938 --> 00:17:39.174
  • Will he receivethe same rewards?
  • 00:17:39.274 --> 00:17:40.943
  • No, of course not.
  • 00:17:41.043 --> 00:17:41.944
  • Then we wouldn'thave a righteous God. See?
  • 00:17:42.044 --> 00:17:44.913
  • He gives to eachaccording to his works.
  • 00:17:45.013 --> 00:17:47.616
  • Are you all following this?It's really easy.
  • 00:17:47.716 --> 00:17:49.852
  • He gives to eachaccording to his works.
  • 00:17:49.952 --> 00:17:52.020
  • That's God.But, we're saved by grace.
  • 00:17:52.121 --> 00:17:54.857
  • Okay, so I askedyou about believers.
  • 00:17:54.957 --> 00:17:57.159
  • Let's talk aboutunbelievers a minute.
  • 00:17:57.259 --> 00:17:58.727
  • Will an unbeliever,an unbelieving man, let's say,
  • 00:17:58.827 --> 00:18:02.197
  • who he's a good guy -I mean, he doesn't do
  • 00:18:02.297 --> 00:18:07.903
  • all of these big,huge sinful things,
  • 00:18:08.003 --> 00:18:10.305
  • but he just obstinatelyand defiantly says,
  • 00:18:10.405 --> 00:18:13.575
  • “I'm not going to givemy life to Jesus Christ.
  • 00:18:13.675 --> 00:18:15.811
  • I don't believe in religion.I'm an atheist or an agnostic.”
  • 00:18:15.911 --> 00:18:18.947
  • And people sharewith him, he says “No,
  • 00:18:19.047 --> 00:18:20.516
  • I'm a self-made man,religion's a crutch,
  • 00:18:20.616 --> 00:18:23.285
  • I don't need Jesus.”Okay, so he goes to hell.
  • 00:18:23.385 --> 00:18:25.854
  • He's gonna go to hellwithout Christ.
  • 00:18:25.954 --> 00:18:27.256
  • But, will he receive the samepunishment as Adolf Hitler? No.
  • 00:18:27.356 --> 00:18:36.064
  • Adolf Hitler killedsix million Jews,
  • 00:18:36.165 --> 00:18:39.468
  • and God's a just God, and AdolfHitler will be recompensed,
  • 00:18:39.568 --> 00:18:45.474
  • repaid, for the deeds he did.That's a just God.
  • 00:18:45.574 --> 00:18:51.046
  • Now you might say, “Well,you mean the believer
  • 00:18:51.146 --> 00:18:53.315
  • just gets off scot free?How's that just?”
  • 00:18:53.415 --> 00:18:57.586
  • Well, it's simple.
  • 00:18:57.686 --> 00:18:58.787
  • Because God repaid Jesus Christfor all of your sins.
  • 00:18:58.887 --> 00:19:04.993
  • Jesus took yoursins on the cross.
  • 00:19:05.093 --> 00:19:08.463
  • [Applause]
  • 00:19:08.564 --> 00:19:13.368
  • If you believe, ‘cause if you'resitting there thinkin',
  • 00:19:13.468 --> 00:19:15.470
  • “Well, that's not fair” -it is fair,
  • 00:19:15.571 --> 00:19:17.839
  • ‘cause you can accept Jesus.It's completely just.
  • 00:19:17.940 --> 00:19:21.777
  • You can accept Jesus Christ.
  • 00:19:21.877 --> 00:19:23.745
  • So, let me show youdegrees of judgment,
  • 00:19:23.845 --> 00:19:26.081
  • degrees of torment for those whodon't accept Christ, all right?
  • 00:19:26.181 --> 00:19:29.451
  • Romans 2:5, “But inaccordance with your hardness
  • 00:19:29.551 --> 00:19:33.388
  • and your impenitent heart”,this means not repentant,
  • 00:19:33.488 --> 00:19:37.559
  • “you are treasuringup for yourself
  • 00:19:37.659 --> 00:19:42.264
  • wrath in the day of wrath andrevelation of the righteous.”
  • 00:19:42.364 --> 00:19:46.735
  • It's a righteousjudgment of God.
  • 00:19:46.835 --> 00:19:48.937
  • In other words,I'm gonna judge righteously,
  • 00:19:49.037 --> 00:19:50.272
  • but He said, “Let me tell youwhat you're doing.
  • 00:19:50.372 --> 00:19:51.807
  • You are treasuring upfor yourself wrath.”
  • 00:19:51.907 --> 00:19:58.880
  • By the way, do you rememberwhat He told believers?
  • 00:19:58.981 --> 00:20:02.351
  • “Treasure up,” store up foryourself treasure, for yourself.
  • 00:20:02.451 --> 00:20:06.255
  • In other words, He's sayingyou're gonna need it in heaven.
  • 00:20:06.355 --> 00:20:08.657
  • We don't need it ‘causeour asphalt is gold.
  • 00:20:08.757 --> 00:20:12.494
  • We don't need your treasure,but when you get to heaven,
  • 00:20:12.594 --> 00:20:14.162
  • you're gonna needyour treasure.
  • 00:20:14.263 --> 00:20:15.397
  • Do you realize some of youaren't gonna have any money
  • 00:20:15.497 --> 00:20:16.765
  • when you get to heaven,because you put more
  • 00:20:16.865 --> 00:20:18.900
  • in your IRA than your E-R-A,your Eternal Retirement Account?
  • 00:20:19.001 --> 00:20:23.538
  • You don't carry any of what youhave on this earth to heaven,
  • 00:20:23.639 --> 00:20:25.574
  • but you cansend it on ahead.
  • 00:20:25.674 --> 00:20:28.677
  • And Jesus actually said youbetter send it on ahead,
  • 00:20:28.777 --> 00:20:30.979
  • ‘cause you're gonna needit when you get there.
  • 00:20:31.079 --> 00:20:32.581
  • ‘Cause there are cities - we'regonna do business in heaven.
  • 00:20:32.681 --> 00:20:35.651
  • It's pretty amazing.
  • 00:20:35.751 --> 00:20:37.286
  • But in the same way thatbelievers can store up treasure,
  • 00:20:37.386 --> 00:20:40.122
  • unbelievers can store up wrath,because God comes to them over,
  • 00:20:40.222 --> 00:20:46.328
  • and over, and over again,and they refuse Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:46.428 --> 00:20:51.500
  • So, this is allthrough Scripture.
  • 00:20:51.600 --> 00:20:53.468
  • By the way, this isa tough Scripture.
  • 00:20:53.568 --> 00:20:58.540
  • Will some believers...will some believers --
  • 00:20:58.640 --> 00:21:03.211
  • I don't know if youever thought about this,
  • 00:21:03.312 --> 00:21:04.546
  • but will some believersreceive a stricter judgment?
  • 00:21:04.646 --> 00:21:09.785
  • Yes, and let me tell you onethat you know that will receive
  • 00:21:09.885 --> 00:21:14.956
  • a stricter judgment.I will.
  • 00:21:15.057 --> 00:21:22.631
  • And I think aboutthis all the time,
  • 00:21:22.731 --> 00:21:25.434
  • not for my salvation,but for what I teach.
  • 00:21:25.534 --> 00:21:31.006
  • James 3:1, “My brethren,let not many of you
  • 00:21:31.106 --> 00:21:36.078
  • become teachers, knowing thatwe shall receive a,” what?
  • 00:21:36.178 --> 00:21:43.151
  • “A stricter judgment.”
  • 00:21:43.251 --> 00:21:44.386
  • Hopefully noneof you were thinking,
  • 00:21:44.486 --> 00:21:45.921
  • “You know, I was thinkingabout volunteering
  • 00:21:46.021 --> 00:21:47.189
  • to be a teacher, but.”
  • 00:21:47.289 --> 00:21:48.657
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:21:48.757 --> 00:21:51.960
  • So, when I was a kid, I hungout at the skating rink. Yeah.
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:59.101
  • Hey, y'all are laughing,but how many of you hung out
  • 00:21:59.201 --> 00:22:01.570
  • at the skating rink?
  • 00:22:01.670 --> 00:22:03.004
  • See, look at allthe old people! Okay.
  • 00:22:03.105 --> 00:22:06.608
  • So, my father took meto the skating rink.
  • 00:22:06.708 --> 00:22:08.810
  • I was 13 years oldor something, you know,
  • 00:22:08.910 --> 00:22:10.645
  • 12, 13, 14, I don't know.
  • 00:22:10.746 --> 00:22:12.347
  • That was about when Istarted kind of going astray.
  • 00:22:12.447 --> 00:22:14.216
  • He knew that I was starting tohang out with the wrong crowd,
  • 00:22:14.316 --> 00:22:16.818
  • so he drops me off,then he circles back around,
  • 00:22:16.918 --> 00:22:20.422
  • sneaks into that darkskating rink,
  • 00:22:20.522 --> 00:22:22.257
  • and sits in the cornerand watches me all night.
  • 00:22:22.357 --> 00:22:26.895
  • So when he picks me up,he says to me,
  • 00:22:26.995 --> 00:22:29.531
  • “Did you smokeany cigarettes tonight?”
  • 00:22:29.631 --> 00:22:34.136
  • I said, “No, sir.”
  • 00:22:34.236 --> 00:22:35.771
  • I said, “I was aroundpeople that smoked,
  • 00:22:35.871 --> 00:22:37.773
  • so you probably smell it on me,but I didn't smoke.”
  • 00:22:37.873 --> 00:22:41.810
  • So he said, “Well,I drove around,
  • 00:22:41.910 --> 00:22:43.178
  • snuck in and watched you, and Isaw you smoke a cigarette.”
  • 00:22:43.278 --> 00:22:47.315
  • I said, “I remember now!”
  • 00:22:47.416 --> 00:22:48.450
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:48.550 --> 00:22:51.753
  • “I remember.
  • 00:22:51.853 --> 00:22:53.288
  • I tried one, but Ididn't like it, Dad.
  • 00:22:53.388 --> 00:22:58.827
  • I didn't like it.”
  • 00:22:58.927 --> 00:23:00.629
  • He said, “I watched yousmoke two cigarettes.”
  • 00:23:00.729 --> 00:23:05.233
  • “Yep, I remember it now.It's jogging my memory.
  • 00:23:05.333 --> 00:23:08.970
  • I remember another timethey kind of dared me.
  • 00:23:09.070 --> 00:23:14.009
  • You know how you'vetold me to, you know,
  • 00:23:14.109 --> 00:23:15.343
  • not run away from a fight,stand up and you know?
  • 00:23:15.444 --> 00:23:17.846
  • And so, they were callingme a coward and all,
  • 00:23:17.946 --> 00:23:20.015
  • and so that wasthe only reason though
  • 00:23:20.115 --> 00:23:21.550
  • that I smoked two tonight.”He said, “I watched
  • 00:23:21.650 --> 00:23:25.020
  • you smoke seven.”
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:28.657
  • And then he punished mefor every cigarette
  • 00:23:28.757 --> 00:23:34.129
  • I smoked, and for lying.If I had known...
  • 00:23:34.229 --> 00:23:41.636
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:23:41.736 --> 00:23:45.307
  • That the Fatherwas watching me...
  • 00:23:47.509 --> 00:23:55.550
  • Are you hearing me?
  • 00:23:55.650 --> 00:23:58.587
  • According to the Bible,the Father is watching,
  • 00:23:58.687 --> 00:24:03.825
  • and He's going to rewardand He's going to punish.
  • 00:24:03.925 --> 00:24:07.462
  • But now, listen to me -two judgments.
  • 00:24:07.562 --> 00:24:10.532
  • Here's the great news.
  • 00:24:10.632 --> 00:24:12.734
  • You get to choose whichjudgment you attend.
  • 00:24:12.834 --> 00:24:18.039
  • ROBERT: Where you spend eternityis completely up to you.

  • and here's the amazing thing,it's a free gift.
