What I Read Online – 09/04/2013 (a.m.)

    • First, we affirm that God, in His eternal decree, has set aside a day — an actual day on the calendar — that will be the last day in human history. The final judgment is the end of the beginning and the beginning of that which will never end.
    • This should be an encouragement to us. We live in a world in which, no matter the facades and fairy tales, all people know God and know that a violation of His character brings sure and righteous judgment. We never approach anyone with the gospel, and with the truth of his or her own sinfulness before God, who does not already have the knowledge of that sinfulness already deeply and permanently embedded in his or her heart.
    • So a general understanding of the final judgment is nothing new. What is new, and this is one of the things that Paul highlights on Mars Hill, is that this judgment will come through God’s appointed Son, who himself was judged on the cross, was raised from the dead, and who will come again to separate the sheep from the goats (Matt. 25:32-33).
    • In other words, behind the kingdom works that are manifest in those who follow Christ, is the inheritance, which by definition is not earned, and that inheritance was prepared before creation began.
    • You will not want to miss the JOHN KNOX @ 500 TOUR of Scotland and northern England. Subscribe to this site and watch for forthcoming details. It will be a tour to remember! Folks are already registering for this tour, so don’t delay.
