THE LAST GREAT DAY

THE LAST GREAT DAY MORNING SERVICE

 

 

Last Great DayÖÖ..RESURRECTION TO SPIRIT.

 

What we need to notice is that the Last Great Day is separate from the Feast. That is because the Feast pictures a temporary state, the Last Great Day, pictures a permanent state of being a spirit being. Therefore where we have been in our booths each day during the Feast, we do not sit in our booths during the Last Great Day, in fact it should have been dismantled yesterday before sunset before the start of the Last Great Day.

Lev 23:40  And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.

 

Notice that we dwell in booths for just the seven days of the Feast.

 

Lev 23:42  You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths,

 

Notice that the Last Great Day is the day of resurrection to spirit, not to flesh, so it will happen at different times to different people.

 

Joh 6:39  This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

 

Again notice that the scripture is talking about eternal life, so it is a resurrection to spirit.

 

Joh 6:40  And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."

 

Joh 6:44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

Again understanding the correct day for keeping the Passover is required for eternal life.

 

Joh 6:54  Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

The Last Great Day is also a time of judgment, notice the Father comes with His reward.

 

Isa 40:10  Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.

 

1Co 3:8  Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

 

Once the Father gives us the Holy Spirit of power, we have eternal life inherent.  So when the Father returns He has rewards with Him.

 

These rewards are in accordance with our works, these rewards are positions in the kingdom.

 

Mat 20:23  So He said to them, "You will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father."

 

Notice that before the day of the Lord, the Father gives rewards to the saints, prophets and others, so this will be a wonderful time.

 

Rev 11:18  The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth."

 

The firstfruits are rewarded at the time of the return of the Father. The other saints are rewarded by Christ at His return.

 

Notice we are rewarded according to our works, so our reward would be our position in the kingdom according to our works.

 

Mat 16:27  For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

 

Rev 22:12  "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

 

Psa 84:10  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

 

Letís notice what Jesus spoke about on the Last Great Day the following is a service at the start of the Last Great Day.

 

One of the conditions for receiving the Holy Spirit of power was to believe.

 

Joh 7:37  On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

Joh 7:38  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

 

The earnest of the Spirit had been given to the disciples, but now they waited for the Spirit of power to be given at Pentecost.

 

Joh 7:39  But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Joh 7:40  Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet."

Joh 7:41  Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Will the Christ come out of Galilee?

Joh 7:42  Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?"

Joh 7:43  So there was a division among the people because of Him.

Joh 7:44  Now some of them wanted to take Him, but no one laid hands on Him.

Joh 7:45  Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why have you not brought Him?"

Joh 7:46  The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this Man!"

Joh 7:47  Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are you also deceived?

Joh 7:48  Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees believed in Him?

Joh 7:49  But this crowd that does not know the law is accursed."

Joh 7:50  Nicodemus (he who came to Jesus by night, being one of them) said to them,

Joh 7:51  "Does our law judge a man before it hears him and knows what he is doing?"

Joh 7:52  They answered and said to him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and look, for no prophet has arisen out of Galilee."

Joh 7:53  And everyone went to his own house.

 

Letís notice some of the other scriptures Christ taught regarding this time.

 

Mat 22:29  Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.

Mat 22:30  For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.

Mat 22:31  But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,

 

This next verse can be a little hard to understand, but verse 31 explains, it is referring to the time that Abraham Isaac and Jacob are resurrected.

 

Mat 22:32  'I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB' ? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."

 

Luk 20:36  nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

 

Again showing it is a time of judgment.

 

Joh 5:29  and come forth those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

 

Jud 1:6  And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;

 

Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

 

2Co 5:10  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

 

Joh 12:48  He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

 

2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

 

Joh 11:24  Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

 

Joh 11:25  Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

 

Act 24:15  I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust.

 

The following scriptures refer to the resurrection to spirit.

 

1Co 15:42  So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.

1Co 15:43  It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.

1Co 15:44  It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

1Co 15:45  And so it is written, "THE FIRST MAN ADAM BECAME A LIVING BEING." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

1Co 15:46  However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.

1Co 15:47  The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.

1Co 15:48  As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.

1Co 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

1Co 15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

1Co 15:51  Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed

1Co 15:52  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY."

1Co 15:55  "O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING? O HADES, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY?"

1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Co 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

 

Php 3:11  if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Php 3:12  Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

 

Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

 

We have clearly shown that the Last Great Day is a resurrection to spirit, a judgment day and a day of receiving a reward.


 
 

THE LAST GREAT DAY SECOND SERVICE

 

 

The following article shows a contrast of two groups of people.
When Christ spoke on the Last Great Day, He gave a clear contrast between two groups of people.

The first group are those who are Godís people, they love God, obey Him, believe Him, hear His voice, understand His words, they are called and will be resurrected on the Last Great Day

 

TO SPIRIT.

 

Joh 6:40  And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."

 

The second group, are those who are not called at this time, have no understanding of Godís word, do not believe Him, or obey Him, or hear His voice. They will be resurrected to physical life, and Godís ways will be given to them and the Last Great Day will come to them later, when they are resurrected to eternal life, when they have understanding of, and obey all of Godís holy days. THIS RESURRECTION TO PHYSICAL LIFE IS NOT THE Last Great Day FOR THEM AT THIS TIME.  THEIR Last Great Day WILL COME LATER.

 

Joh 8:43  Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.

 

Joh 8:47  He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."

 

The following scripture was a night service at the beginning of the Last Great Day.

 

Joh 7:37  On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

Joh 7:38  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

 

When the service was over, the people went to their homes.

 

Joh 7:53  And everyone went to his own house.

 

Then on the next morning, still the Holy Day of the Last Great Day: letís look at what Christ spoke about on the Last Great Day.

 

Joh 8:2  Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them.

Joh 8:3  Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,

Joh 8:4  they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.

Joh 8:5  Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?"

Joh 8:6  This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

Joh 8:7  So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."

Joh 8:8  And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

Joh 8:9  Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Joh 8:10  When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?"

Joh 8:11  She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."

 

What Christ wrote may well have been the 10 commandments, these were written in stone, and there was no mercy given to those who did not keep the law.
The original 10 commandments were written twice by the Father, Christ wrote in the sand twice. The commandments were written by the finger of God, Christ wrote with His finger in the sand.

 

Deu 5:9  you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

Deu 5:10  but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

 

However, Christ wrote in the ground, a softer surface, Christ added mercy to the law.

 

The following verses show that the Pharisees did not know who Jesus or the Father were.
Christ was showing that the fundamental knowledge of the Father is required for us to have eternal life, if we are resurrected to spirit on the Last Great Day, we must have the end time knowledge of the Father and Christ.

 

Joh 8:12  Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

Joh 8:13  The Pharisees therefore said to Him, "You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true."

Joh 8:14  Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going.

Joh 8:15  You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.

 

It is the Fatherís judgment, but Christ and the Father judge together.

 

Joh 8:16  And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me.

Joh 8:17  It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true.

Joh 8:18  I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me."

Joh 8:19  Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also."

Joh 8:20  These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.

Joh 8:21  Then Jesus said to them again, "I am going away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come."

Joh 8:22  So the Jews said, "Will He kill Himself, because He says, 'Where I go you cannot come'?"

Joh 8:23  And He said to them, "You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

 

We must believe that Christ is God.

 

Joh 8:24  Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."

Joh 8:25  Then they said to Him, "Who are You?" And Jesus said to them, "Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning.

Joh 8:26  I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him."

Joh 8:27  They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father.

 

Christ told them that they would not understand who He was until He had died.

 

Joh 8:28  Then Jesus said to them, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.

Joh 8:29  And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him."

Joh 8:30  As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.

 

Notice now, that many believed Christ.

 

Joh 8:31  Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

 

The following verses show that the Last Great Day, is a resurrection of those who believe God, know God, and who believe that Christ will make them free from sin, who understand the words of God, and who love the words of God in their life.

 

There is a contrast being made here between those who do believe God and those who simply do not.

 

Those who at this time simply do not believe God, will have their Last Great Day later, at a point in time after their resurrection to physical life and after they believe God and prove to be faithful to the word of God. The holy days, will apply to them at that point in their life, they will come to the understanding of the holy days later, as we in Godís church are coming to that understanding now, at this point in our lives.

 

The Last Great Day pictures the resurrection to spirit to those who are faithful members of Godís church, who believe and obey God. We can see the contrast between the two in the following verses.

 

Joh 8:33  They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, 'You will be made free'?"

Joh 8:34  Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.

 

Notice that Godís words have no place in these people.

 

Joh 8:36  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Joh 8:37  "I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.

 

The father of these people is the devil.

 

Joh 8:38  I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father."

 

These people wanted to kill Jesus, even though He told them the truth.

 

Joh 8:39  They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.

Joh 8:40  But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

Joh 8:41  You do the deeds of your father." Then they said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father God."

 

Again we see that these people did not love God.  Another sign to show they did not belong to the Father.

 

Joh 8:42  Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.

 

They do not understand Godís words, because they just simply canít hear them.

 

Joh 8:43  Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.

Joh 8:44  You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Joh 8:45  But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

Joh 8:46  Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?

Joh 8:47  He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."

Joh 8:48  Then the Jews answered and said to Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?"

Joh 8:49  Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.

 

We must keep Godís words. This will lead to eternal life.
Notice how the group with no understanding, have no concept of what Christ is saying to them.

 

Joh 8:51  Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death."

Joh 8:52  Then the Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, 'If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.'

Joh 8:53  Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to be?"

Joh 8:54  Jesus answered, "If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God.

Joh 8:55  Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, 'I do not know Him,' I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word.

Joh 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."

Joh 8:57  Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?"

 

Christ here is saying, to those who can understand and hear His voice, that He {Christ} existed before Abraham.  How simple is the truth, when we have ears to hear.

 

Joh 8:58  Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."

Joh 8:59  Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

 

The following scriptures show that the Last Great Day is a resurrection of Godís people, to spirit.

 

Joh 6:39  This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

Joh 6:40  And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."

Joh 6:41  The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven."

Joh 6:42  And they said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, 'I have come down from heaven'?"

Joh 6:43  Jesus therefore answered and said to them, "Do not murmur among yourselves.

Joh 6:44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

Joh 11:24  Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

 

Joh 12:48  He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

 

The Feast of Tabernacles pictures the temporary dwelling in booths during the time in the wilderness for the nation of Israel.
Today it pictures us living in a temporary dwelling of a physical human body, and the spiritual journey after receiving the earnest of the Spirit.

 

The Last Great Day pictures the resurrection to spirit.

 

When the law of Moses was given it was written on tablets of stone and there was no mercy given for breaking the law.

 

When Christ spoke to the Pharisees in the above account about the woman taken in adultery, He wrote in sand {possibly the Ten Commandments} and this He did twice, just as the tablets were written twice, and they now have mercy, because under the law of Moses the woman would have been stoned, but Jesus did not condemn her, but told her to go and sin no more.

 

The Last Great Day pictures the resurrection to spirit: this will mean judgment. This is a serious time.

 

Joh 12:48  He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.



THE LAST GREAT DAY IS ALSO A DAY OF JUDGMENT.

 

Notice that this is also the time when the unfaithful angels will also be judged.

 

Jud 1:6  And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;

 

We know from the following scripture that we will judge angels.

 

1Co 6:3  Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?

 

Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

 

Notice that judgment is given to the saints.

 

Dan 7:22  until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

 

Mat 11:22  But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.

 

Dan 7:10  A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.



WHO WILL BE JUDGED?
 
Those that are to be judged in the future are:
The saints, who are the firstfruits, live and dead.
Church members live and dead.
Angels.
Evil Sons of God.
The Devil and his angels.
Great multitude which comes out of tribulation.
Bulk of mankind.



THE FIRSTFRUITS

 

While the firstfruits are living their mortal lives, they are judged during that time, how they live their lives what is in their heart.  They have the spirit of power and what they do with it, what motivates them, their love, faith, mercy, obedience, belief, knowledge and attitude.

 

1Pe 4:17  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

 

The following scriptures back this up, because when the Father returns, the saints are with Him, these are the firstfruits.

 

Deu 33:2  And he said: "The LORD came from Sinai, And dawned on them from Seir; He shone forth from Mount Paran, And He came with ten thousands of saints; From His right hand Came a fiery law for them.

 

Zec 14:5  Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee As you fled from the earthquake In the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the LORD my God will come, And all the saints with You.

 

When the saints return with the Father they begin to judge.

 

Dan 7:22  until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

 

Psa 149:9  To execute on them the written judgment This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!



CHURCH MEMBERS LIVE AND DEAD.

 

The church members who are not firstfruits will be judged at the return of Christ, He comes back with His angels and judges.

 

If we read all of Matt. 25 we will see that the first two parables refer to church members.  Firstly the virgins with the oil, and secondly those with the talents. Therefore the following verses apply to members at the judgment when Christ returns, some have been fruitful and obedient, and receive eternal life.  Some have done nothing and have been unprofitable, and are given everlasting punishment.
That is because they had been given the Holy Spirit of power and did nothing with it. We must continue to grow and overcome. You cannot get punished with eternal death unless you have been given the Holy Spirit of power.

 

Mat 25:31  "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

Mat 25:32  All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

Mat 25:33  And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

Mat 25:34  Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Mat 25:35  for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

Mat 25:36  I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'

Mat 25:37  "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

Mat 25:38  When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

Mat 25:39  Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?'

Mat 25:40  And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

Mat 25:41  "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

Mat 25:42  for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

Mat 25:43  I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'

Mat 25:44  "Then they also will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'

Mat 25:45  Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'

Mat 25:46  And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."



ANGELS THAT SINNED

 

The angels are judged by the saints, this is referring to those who left their first estate and sinned.

 

1Co 6:3  Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?

 

They are to be judged on the Last Great Day.

 

Jud 1:6  And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;

 

2Pe 2:4  For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;

 

Rev 12:9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.



EVIL SONS OF GOD

 

These are judged already.

 

The following verse shows that the dragon drew some of the Sons of God, to himself, they therefore sinned, and became the evil God seed, the evil Sons of God.

 

Rev 12:4  His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

 

The evil sons of God masquerade as church members, but they are in fact the devilís seed.

 

Jud 1:10  But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.

Jud 1:11  Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.

Jud 1:12  These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;

Jud 1:13  raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

 

2Pe 2:12  But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption,

2Pe 2:13  and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you,

2Pe 2:14  having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.

2Pe 2:15  They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

2Pe 2:16  but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man's voice restrained the madness of the prophet.

2Pe 2:17  These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

 

At the end time the angels sort out the wicked from the just and the wicked are cast into the fire.

 

Mat 13:47  "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,

Mat 13:48  which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away.

Mat 13:49  So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,

Mat 13:50  and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

 

Another account of how the angels gather the wicked, notice that in verse 38 it is shown that the tares are the children of the wicked one.

 

Mat 13:38  The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.

Mat 13:39  The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.

Mat 13:40  Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.

Mat 13:41  The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,

Mat 13:42  and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 13:43  Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!



DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS

 

These are already judged.

 

Mat 25:41  "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

 

1Ti 3:6  not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.

 

Rev 20:10  The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.



GREAT MULTITUDE WHICH COME OUT OF TRIBULATION

 

These are the Israelites which have repented during the time of Jacobís trouble.
The other nations are those which have joined with them, the white robes is a symbol of righteousness.

 

Rev 7:9  After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

 

Notice the other nations are mentioned.

 

Isa 14:1  For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob.

 

Back to Revelation.

 

Rev 7:10  and crying out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

Rev 7:11  All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

Rev 7:12  saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen."

Rev 7:13  Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?"

 

Israel repents during the captivity after Jacobís trouble.

 

Rev 7:14  And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Rev 7:15  Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.

Rev 7:16  They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;

 

They are not spirit beings at this point, because Jesus will lead them to living fountains of water, which is a symbol for eternal life.

 

Rev 7:17  for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

 

The above scriptures show clearly that the Last Great Day is a resurrection of the saints and also a judgment day, in which the saints will play a very serious role.



IT IS ALSO A TIME TO RECEIVE A REWARD

 

Isa 40:10  Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.

 

Mat 5:12  Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

Mat 10:41  He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

Mat 16:27  For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

 

Luk 6:35  But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.

 

Col 3:24  knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

Col 3:25  But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.

 

Rev 11:18  The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth."

 

Rev 22:12  "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
