Key Question Is There a Coming Judgment?
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
4
It is a public scandal that gives offense, it is
no sin to sin in secret. - French Dramatist,
Moliner
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
5
"And there is no creature hidden from His sight,
but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes
of Him with whom we have to do." (Hebrews 413)
"But I tell you that every careless word that
people speak, they shall give an accounting for
it in the day of judgment." (Matthew 1236) "on
the day when, according to my gospel, God will
judge the secrets of men through Christ
Jesus." (Romans 216)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
6
But Isnt God Love?
"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that
He loved us and sent His Son to be the
propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so
loved us, we also ought to love one another. No
one has seen God at any time if we love one
another, God abides in us, and His love is
perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in
Him and He in us, because He has given us of His
Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father
has sent the Son to be the Savior of the
world." (1 John 410-14)
"The Lords lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail. They are new
every morning Great is Your faithfulness."(Lament
ations 322-23)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
7
God is Love, But Also Just
"A jealous and avenging God is the Lord The Lord
is avenging and wrathful. The Lord takes
vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves
wrath for His enemies. The Lord is slow to anger
and great in power, And the Lord will by no means
leave the guilty unpunished. In whirlwind and
storm is His way, And clouds are the dust beneath
His feet. . . .The Lord is good, A stronghold in
the day of trouble, And He knows those who take
refuge in Him." (Nahum 17) " For behold, the
day is coming, burning like a furnace and all
the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff
and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,
says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave
them neither root nor branch." (Malachi 41)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come

The Wrath of God
  • Five General Types of Gods Wrath
  • Eschatological (Revelation)
  • Calamity (Flood)
  • Eternal (Hell)
  • Consequential (misuse freedom)
  • Abandonment (Romans 1)

"He who believes in the Son has eternal life
but he who does not obey the Son will not see
life, but the wrath of God abides on him."(John
336)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
9
Abandonment Wrath
"Because I called and you refused, I stretched
out my hand and no one paid attention And you
neglected all my counsel And did not want my
reproof I will also laugh at your calamity I
will mock when your dread comes, When your dread
comes like a storm And your calamity comes like a
whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon
you. Then they will call on me, but I will not
answer They will seek me diligently but they
will not find me, Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord. They
would not accept my counsel, They spurned all my
reproof. So they shall eat of the fruit of their
own way And be satiated with their own
devices."(Proverbs 124-31)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
10
The Wrath of Christ
" And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white
horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful
and True, and in righteousness He judges and
wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on
His head are many diadems and He has a name
written on Him which no one knows except Himself.
He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and
His name is called The Word of God. And the
armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine
linen, white and clean, were following Him on
white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword,
so that with it He may strike down the nations,
and He will rule them with a rod of iron and He
treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God,
the Almighty."(Revelation 1911-15)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
11
Why is Gods Wrath Coming?
"For this you know with certainty, that no
immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is
an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of
Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty
words, for because of these things the wrath of
God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not be partakers with them for you
were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in
the Lord walk as children of Light (for the
fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and
righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is
pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the
unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even
expose them for it is disgraceful even to speak
of the things which are done by them in
secret."(Ephesians 55-12) "Therefore consider
the members of your earthly body as dead to
immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and
greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is
because of these things that the wrath of God
will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in
them you also once walked, when you were living
in them."(Colossians 35-7)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
12
Why is Gods Wrath Coming?
"Then in the fourth generation they will return
here, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet
complete."(Genesis 1516) "hindering us from
speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be
saved with the result that they always fill up
the measure of their sins. But wrath has come
upon them to the utmost."(1 Thessalonians 216)
The figure of "heap up" or "fill to the full"
(anaplerosai) points to a well-defined limit of
sin appointed by divine decree. When this point
is reached, divine chastisement becomes
inevitable.
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
13
God Always Warns First
"The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to
them again and again by His messengers, because
He had compassion on His people and on His
dwelling place but they continually mocked the
messengers of God, despised His words and scoffed
at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord
arose against His people, until there was no
remedy."(2 Chronicles 3615-16) " And He began
to speak to them in parables A man planted a
vineyard and put a wall around it, and dug a vat
under the wine press and built a tower, and
rented it out to vine-growers and went on a
journey. At the harvest time he sent a slave to
the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the
produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers.
They took him, and beat him and sent him away
empty-handed. Again he sent them another slave,
and they wounded him in the head, and treated him
shamefully. And he sent another, and that one
they killed and so with many others, beating
some and killing others. He had one more to
send, a beloved son he sent him last of all to
them, saying, They will respect my son. But
those vine-growers said to one another, This is
the heir come, let us kill him, and the
inheritance will be ours! They took him, and
killed him and threw him out of the vineyard.
What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will
come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give
the vineyard to others."(Mark 121-9)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
14
Judgment is Certain
"The conclusion, when all has been heard, is
fear God and keep His commandments, because this
applies to every person. For God will bring every
act to judgment, everything which is hidden,
whether it is good or evil." (Ecclesiastes
1213-14) "And inasmuch as it is appointed for
men to die once and after this comes
judgment," (Hebrews 927)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
15
How to Have Real Justice?
Immanuel Kant didnt believe you could know God,
but taught that if God doesnt exist, then ethics
were meaningless. Without God all ethics are
emotive a matter of opinion. Kant asked the
question, What would it take for ethics to be
meaningful?
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
16
For there to be meaning in ethics there must be
Justice. What is necessary for justice to be
real? This world shows that justice doesnt
always prevail. There must be life after death.
Is that enough? No. There must be a judgment.
And it must be perfect. And for there to be
perfect justice and a perfect judgment, there
must be a perfect judge. One that must know all
the facts of the case. He must have all
knowledge. Is that enough? No. the judge must
be righteous. A judge can know all the facts and
be corrupt. Is that enough? No. The judge
must have the power to implement and enforce the
justice. Nothing must be able to oppose him.
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
17
The Perfect Judge
"For not even the Father judges anyone, but He
has given all judgment to the Son," (John
522) "because He has fixed a day in which He
will judge the world in righteousness through a
Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof
to all men by raising Him from the dead." (Acts
1731)

Why a Judgment of the Lost?
"And that slave who knew his masters will and
did not get ready or act in accord with his will,
will receive many lashes, but the one who did not
know it, and committed deeds worthy of a
flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who
has been given much, much will be required and
to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask
all the more."(Luke 1247-48) "And while all
the people were listening, He said to the
disciples, Beware of the scribes, who like to
walk around in long robes, and love respectful
greetings in the market places, and chief seats
in the synagogues and places of honor at
banquets, who devour widows houses, and for
appearances sake offer long prayers. These will
receive greater condemnation."(Luke 2045-47)

What applications can we take away from these
truths?
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
26
Application 1 Judgment is Certain
Live with a mission to save the lost.
  • The first doctrine to be denied in Scripture is
    Judgment
  • The serpent said to the woman, You surely will
    not die!
  • Genesis 34
  • But God says Judgment is certain
  • For ?God will bring every act to judgment,
    everything which is hidden, whether it is good or
    evil.
  • - Ecclesiastes 1214

The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
27
"If sinners be dammed, at least let them leap to
hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let
them perish with our arms about their knees. Let
no one go there unwarned and unprayed for. -
Charles Spurgeon
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
28
On an American troopship, the soldiers crowded
around their chaplain asking, Do you believe in
hell? I do not, replied the chaplain. Well,
then, will you please resign, for if there is no
hell, we do not need you, and if there is a hell,
we do not wish to be led astray.
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
29
Application 2 Salvation is Certain
Live with peace and thankfulness.
"Much more then, having now been justified by His
blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God
through Him." (Romans 59) "For God has not
destined us for wrath, but for obtaining
salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ," (1
Thessalonians 59)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
30
Application 3 Christs Victory is Certain
Live with confidence and assurance.
"Now if Christ is preached, that He has been
raised from the dead, how do some among you say
that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if
there is no resurrection of the dead, not even
Christ has been raised and if Christ has not
been raised, then our preaching is vain, your
faith also is vain. Moreover we are even found to
be false witnesses of God, because we testified
against God that He raised Christ, whom He did
not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.
For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ
has been raised and if Christ has not been
raised, your faith is worthless you are still in
your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep
in Christ have perished. If we have hoped in
Christ in this life only, we are of all men most
to be pitied. But now Christ has been raised from
the dead, the first fruits of those who are
asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man
also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in
Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made
alive." (1 Corinthians 1512-22)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
31
Christians talk often of being saved and of
salvation, which means deliverance. But how
often do Christians reflect on the question
Saved from what?
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
32
For some, Hell is simply a truth realized too
late. - Os Guinness
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
33
The Essence of Theological Liberalism a God
without wrath brought men without sin into a
kingdom without judgment through the
ministrations of a Christ without a cross. -
Richard Niebuhr
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
34
The judgments of the Lord are true they are
righteous altogether." (Psalm 199) Judgments
mishpat Divine Verdicts "Far be it from
You to do such a thing, to slay the righteous
with the wicked, so that the righteous and the
wicked are treated alike. Far be it from You!
Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal
justly?" (Genesis 1825)
The Creed I Believe in the Judgment to Come
35
I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of
heaven and earth And in Jesus Christ his only
Son, our Lord who was conceived by the Holy
Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried
he descended into hell the third day he rose
again from the dead he ascended into heaven, and
sitteth on the right hand of God the Father
Almighty from thence he shall come to judge the
quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost
the holy catholic church the communion of
saints the forgiveness of sins the resurrection
of the body and the life everlasting. Amen
