The Truth About The Judgement Day "The Accuser Of Brethren" Trembles To Have You Find Out

Have you ever heard about the Judgement Day as a Christian? What did you hear about it?
There are very few messages I know that strike as much fear in the hearts of “Christians” as the message of the “Judgement Day”.
The reason is that some Christians have been made to believe that the judgement day is a day that is full of uncertainties. That is, you can’t be sure of what to expect that day.
They have also been told that the judgement which will take place that day is based on our human performance. If you do enough good works, then God would probably have pity on you on that day and not cast you into hell. If you are not careful in the way you go about your Christian life, you would see the other side of Him.
Some have even been told that on that day, God will display all the sins you have ever committed on a big TV Screen for the whole world to watch. Imagine such foolishness. How can the same God that said in 2 Corinthians 5:19, Hebrews 8:12 and Hebrews 10:17, that He doesn’t record your sins and will never remember them against you, go back on His Word?
All these notions above, are just some of the unbiblical teachings people have been fed about the judgement day. As long as you hold strongly to such notions, the devil, the accuser of brethren, will keep using them to take away your joy and keep you in bondage to fear. Especially when you have not been on your best behaviour.
Every time you hear that the Judgement Day is coming, your whole body will shiver. You will think of all the negative things you’ve done and not see any reason why you won’t end up in Hell. All because you believe it is a day your behavioural script will be marked and in your own eyes you scored 0/100.
What really is the judgement day and what is it going to look like?
The judgement day is simply a day in which God would separate those who received His life through faith in His Son Jesus, from those who didn’t. Those who didn’t believe in Him (Jesus), will be separated eternally from Him and the saints. Having been separated from His presence, they shall be utterly destroyed (Hell).
Concerning that day, here Is what apostle John wrote to us as believers.
1Jn 4:15  Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 
1Jn 4:16  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 
1Jn 4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 
1Jn 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Did you notice how he went on from verse 15 to explain something about the man in Christ i.e the believer today?
He says God LIVES WITHIN him. He has been made PERFECT in God’s love and would have BOLDNESS on the day of Judgement.
So on that day of judgement, we won’t be approaching the judge of the whole world with fear, timidity or shyness. We won’t have to shy away from His presence because we are not holy or righteous enough. We won’t be approaching Him with anything fear. Do you know why?
That is because as Jesus IS, so are WE in this present world.
The question now is, how is Jesus presently?
Well, Jesus is RIGHTEOUS, HOLY and WELL-PLEASING (acceptable) to the father.
That simply means as believers, we are RIGHTEOUS, HOLY and ACCEPTABLE or WELL-PLEASING to the Father also.
2Co 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 
As Christ IS, is how we are now and will forever be. That’s why we would have BOLDNESS/CONFIDENCE to stand before Him on that great day of judgement. That is what the Bible teaches.
Look at that verses 17 and 18 of 1 John 4 one more time.
1Jn 4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 
1Jn 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 
Notice how it is clearly explained that God doesn’t want you to live in fear of that day. If you are still afraid of that day, it simply means you have not been made perfect in the love of God. You are yet to understand fully how much God loves you. You are yet to understand all that He has done for you in Christ. You are yet to understand who you are in Christ!
Yes, the judgement day is coming but Jesus got you covered as a believer. Unlike what is popularly believed out there, your sins are not going to be displayed for the whole world to see and judge your level of performance. You are not going there to be judged by your works but rather by your faith in Christ.
The only time you will ever be judged by your works as a believer is at the Judgement Seat of Christ. This is after you have gone to heaven. That is where you will receive the reward for the good works you have done here on earth.
If you have no good works on your account then, you will certainly have no reward from Him. Though you will still be in heaven. That is because heaven is not a reward for the good we have done. It is a gift we receive by faith in Christ. Left for us, there is no amount of good work we can do that will be enough for us to enter there.
So, the last day or the Day of Judgement is the day on which God will judge the whole world. And on that day, only one thing will matter - Faith in Christ.
Have you believed in Jesus as your Saviour from sin and condemnation or are you still struggling very hard on your own to please God?
Do not forget that I said on that day ONLY ONE THING will matter. Not your religion, church or good works. Only faith in Christ. That is what will determine the outcome of your judgement.
That is the truth about the Judgement Day. That is what the Bible truly teaches!
Having received Christ as our Lord and saviour, we BOLDLY await that day!
I hope this blesses you. Lift your hands and give Him praise.
Glory to God!
