Judging The Quick & The Dead

  1. 1. 2 Peter 3:3-9 <ul><li>I want to remind you that in the last days there will </li></ul><ul><li>be scoffers who will laugh at the truth and do every </li></ul><ul><li>evil thing they desire. This will be their argument: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Jesus promised to come back, did he? Then where is </li></ul><ul><li>he? Why, as far back as anyone can remember, </li></ul><ul><li>everything has remained exactly the same since the </li></ul><ul><li>world was first created.&quot; They deliberately forget </li></ul><ul><li>that God made the heavens by the word of his </li></ul><ul><li>command, and he brought the earth up from the </li></ul><ul><li>water and surrounded it with water.  </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Then he used the water to destroy the world with a </li></ul><ul><li>mighty flood. And God has also commanded that </li></ul><ul><li>the heavens and the earth will be consumed by fire </li></ul><ul><li>on the day of judgment, when ungodly people will </li></ul><ul><li>perish. But you must not forget, dear friends, that a </li></ul><ul><li>day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a </li></ul><ul><li>thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn't really </li></ul><ul><li>being slow about his promise to return, as some </li></ul><ul><li>people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. </li></ul><ul><li>He does not want anyone to perish, so he is giving </li></ul><ul><li>more time for everyone to repent.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  3. 3. Credo
  4. 4. Judging The Quick & The Dead <ul><li>And he commanded us to preach unto the people, </li></ul><ul><li>  and to testify that it is he which was ordained of  </li></ul><ul><li>God to be the Judge of quick and dead. Acts 10:42KJV   </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Last Days <ul><li>  In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the </li></ul><ul><li>prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these </li></ul><ul><li>last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he </li></ul><ul><li>appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made </li></ul><ul><li>the universe. Hebrews 1:1-2 </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Scoffers <ul><li>I want to remind you that in the last days there will be </li></ul><ul><li>scoffers who will laugh at the truth and do every evil thing </li></ul><ul><li>they desire 2 Peter 3:3 </li></ul>
  7. 7. Where Is He? <ul><li>This will be their argument: &quot;Jesus promised to come back, </li></ul><ul><li>did he? Then where is he? Why, as far back as anyone can </li></ul><ul><li>remember, everything has remained exactly the same since </li></ul><ul><li>the world was first created.&quot;   2 Peter 3:4 </li></ul>
  8. 8. Two Simple Words <ul><li>Again and again they tested God's patience and frustrated </li></ul><ul><li>the Holy One of Israel. They forgot about his power and </li></ul><ul><li>how he rescued them from their enemies. They forgot his </li></ul><ul><li>miraculous signs in Egypt, his wonders on the plain of </li></ul><ul><li>Zoan. Psalm 78:41-43 </li></ul>
  9. 9. They Forgot: Who Created The World <ul><li>They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of his command, and he brought the earth up from the water and surrounded it with water. </li></ul>
  10. 10. They Forgot: The Flood <ul><li>Then he used the water to destroy the world </li></ul><ul><li>with a mighty flood. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Day Of Judgment <ul><li>And God has also commanded that the heavens and the earth will be consumed by fire on the day of judgment, when ungodly people will perish </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Wheat From The Chaff <ul><li>  Even now the ax of God's judgment is poised, ready to </li></ul><ul><li>sever your roots. Yes, every tree that does not produce </li></ul><ul><li>good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the </li></ul><ul><li>fire.  He is ready to separate the chaff from the grain with </li></ul><ul><li>his winnowing fork…storing the grain in his barn but </li></ul><ul><li>burning the chaff with never-ending fire. Matthew 3:10,12 </li></ul>
  13. 13. Do Not Forget <ul><li>But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: </li></ul><ul><li>With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, </li></ul><ul><li>and a thousand years are like a day. </li></ul>
  14. 14. In His Time <ul><li>For you, a thousand years are as yesterday! They are like a </li></ul><ul><li>few hours! You sweep people away like dreams that </li></ul><ul><li>disappear or like grass that springs up in the morning.  </li></ul><ul><li>Psalm 90:4-5 </li></ul>
  15. 15. He Is Patient <ul><li>The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise,  </li></ul><ul><li>as some understand slowness. </li></ul><ul><li>He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, </li></ul><ul><li>but everyone to come to repentance. </li></ul>
  16. 16. He Will Come To Judge The Living & The Dead
