THE THREE ANGELS’
4. THREE PHASES OF JUDGMENT
JUDGMENT: A PROCESS…NOT AN
REVELATION 12:7, 8
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his
angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon
fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither
was their place found any more in heaven.
Does God require a judgment to determine who’ll
be saved or lost?
To execute upon them the judgment written: this
honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
A UNIVERSAL CONTAGION
A cosmic pandemic: Universally
A PERFECT DESIGN… MALFUNCTIONS
EZEKIEL 28:13-19 [Lucifer’s fall from heaven.]
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not
surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat
thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall
be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the
woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and
that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be
desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit
thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her
husband with her; and he did eat.
1 CORINTHIANS 4:9
For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles
last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a
spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
COLOSSIANS 1:19, 20
For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all
fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the
blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things
unto himself; by him, [I say], whether [they be]
things in earth, or things in heaven.
WHO IS THIS VILLAIN: MISERY…?
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled
the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast
sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of
the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O
covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of
thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick;
therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of
thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to
ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that
THE FATHER OF LIES
JOHN 8:44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and
the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a
murderer from the beginning, and abode not in
the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his
own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good
evil; that put darkness for light, and light for
darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet
WHAT DO THESE PHRASES MEAN?
• “Multitude of thy merchandise”
2. “Multitude of thy iniquities or traffick”
Thou shalt not go up and down [as] a talebearer
among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against
the blood of thy neighbour: I [am] the LORD.
In thee are men that carry tales to shed blood: and
in thee they eat upon the mountains: in the midst
of thee they commit lewdness.
PROBABLE REASONS FOR GOD’S
THREE PHASES OF JUDGMENT
• SIN MUST BE WIPED OUT FOREVER
4. WITNESSES ON BOTH SIDES: SATISFIED
AND CONVINCED BEYOND DOUBT
6. UNIVERSAL VINDICATION OF GOD’S NAME
4. GOD IS SOVEREIGN FROM BEGINNING TO
FIRST PHASE OF JUDGMENT: PRE-
ADVENT OR INVESTIGATIVE PHASE
REVELATION 14:6, 7
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of
heaven, having the everlasting gospel to
preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and
to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and
people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God,
and give glory to him; for the hour of his
judgment is come: and worship him that made
heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the
fountains of waters.
QUESTIONS: PRE-ADVENT OR
• Is mercy’s door still open?
5. Does this judgment begin at the proclamation
of the first angel’s message?
7. Does the first angel proclaim his message
before the second coming of Jesus Christ?
PRE-ADVENT OR INVESTIGATIVE
Before Christ second coming
At the proclamation of the first angel’s
Before probation closes
WHERE DOES JUDGMENT TAKE
DANIEL 7:9, 10
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the
Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white
as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool:
his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his
wheels [as] burning fire. A fiery stream issued and
came forth from before him: thousand thousands
ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten
thousand stood before him: the judgment was set,
and the books were opened.
TWO IDENTICAL BEASTS
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard,
and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his
mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave
him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
REVELATION 14:9, 10
And the third angel followed them, saying with a
loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his
image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in
his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the
wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture
into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be
tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of
the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
HOW MANY MUST APPEAR BEFORE
2 CORINTHIANS 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of
Christ; that every one may receive the things [done]
in [his] body, according to that he hath done,
whether [it be] good or bad.
How can we appear before God’s judgment in
heaven while living on earth?
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE INTERIM?
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he
which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is
righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is
holy, let him be holy still.
Judgment comes to an end
The verdict is given
Time passes on...
Sentence is carried out
Eternity: Heaven or hell
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is]
with me, to give every man according as his
work shall be.
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his
Father with his angels; and then he shall reward
every man according to his works.
YOUR CHOICE: DEAL OR NO DEAL!
1 THESSALONIANS 4:14-17
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God
bring with him. For this we say unto you by the
word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and]
remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not
prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord
himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the
trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall
be caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the Lord.
PAUL’S VIEW OF GOD’S JUDGMENT
2 TIMOTHY 4:6-8
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time
of my departure is at hand. I have fought a
good fight, I have finished [my] course, I
have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid
up for me a crown of righteousness, which
the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me
at that day: and not to me only, but unto all
them also that love his appearing.
MUST THERE HAVE BEEN A
...For the hour of his judgment has come
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the
thousand years were finished. This [is] the first
HEAVEN’S DREAM TEAM
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect
from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the
2 THESSALONIANS 2:1, 2
NOW WE beseech you, brethren, by the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering
together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in
mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word,
nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is
HOW CAN YOU BE PART OF THIS
Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the
first heaven and the first earth were passed away;
and there was no more sea.
This is the culmination of the pre-advent or
SECOND PHASE OF JUDGMENT: THE
REVELATION 20:4, 5
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls
of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had
received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their
hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a
thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not
again until the thousand years were finished. This
[is] the first resurrection.
WILL THE SAINTS JUDGE THE REST
OF THOSE WHO ARE DEAD?
1 CORINTHIANS 6:1-3
DARE ANY of you, having a matter against
another, go to law before the unjust, and not
before the saints? Do ye not know that the
saints shall judge the world? and if the world
shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to
judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that
we shall judge angels? how much more things
that pertain to this life?
REVELATION 20:14, 15
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death. And whosoever was not
found written in the book of life was cast into the
lake of fire.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and
sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their
part in the lake which burneth with fire and
brimstone: which is the second death.
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and
hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the
throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
THIRD JUDGMENT PHASE: THE POST
REVELATION 20:11, 12
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on
it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled
away; and there was found no place for them. And
I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God;
and the books were opened: and another book was
opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead
were judged out of those things which were
written in the books, according to their works.
3. The books [plural] were opened
4. Another book [singular] was opened
WHAT DO BOOKS AND BOOK
Books: Deeds [Transgressions] Sinful acts
Book: Names of the saints
If your name [.........] is in the Book, then your deeds
or transgressions are not found in the Books; but if
your deeds or transgressions are found in the Books,
then your name is not in the Book [Book of life].
HERE’S BIBLE PROOF…
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and
death and hell delivered up the dead which were in
them: and they were judged every man according to
their works. And death and hell were cast into the
lake of fire. This is the second death. And
Whosoever was not found written in the Book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.
WHY IS THE BOOK OF LIFE
BROUGHT TO VIEW?
The Book of life is brought to view to show that
the names of the wicked-dead are not there.
Why? It’s because their sinful deeds were found in
the Books, and that has what kept the them out
DOES THE BIBLE MAKE MENTION OF
THESE THREE PHASES OF
1. Pre-advent or Investigative Phase
5. Millennial Phase
3. Post-Millennial Phase
