The purpose of this thread is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and our need to get ready for His return. On this thread we offer a clear and understandable way to begin a relationship with Jesus. We will be spreading this message to our local community and around the world, with 100% Bible truth.

We will give you true Scriptures explaining the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today we will start with Matthew 16:27...For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father's glory with His angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done....

Ok, so he will reward us for what we have done so here we go.

I am married for over 20 years and have two delightful children.
I have remained faithful to my wife.
I have never stolen.
I do not lie.
I do not do drugs and never have although I do partake of a drink or three
I have been at my present employment for almost 20 years.

My reward is apparently a lake of fire according to you.

I have volunteered my time, and donated money, blood and food to those in need. I have taken in chilren with no homes. I have never been arrested, or given a ticket. I work with the elderly and the mentally handicapped kids. I also have been faithful to my spouse of 25 yrs. I imagine my reward is the same.

"The reward" has nothing to do with us, and everything to do with Him. We cannot earn our way to heaven through any good deeds or sacrifice. It is only through faith that we may be saved, if we follow Christ.

The Fourth Lateran Council (1215), infallibly defined that at the second coming Jesus "will judge the living and the dead, to render to every person according to his works, both to the reprobate and to the elect. All of them will rise with their own bodies, which they now wear, so as to receive according to their deserts, whether these be good or bad [Rom. 2:611]" (constitution 1).

Matt. 16:

27 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.

Then all shall receive their desserts; those who lose their lives shall gain life; those who choose the world shall lose all. As Christ begins to teach of dying on the cross, he begins to give prominence to his coming again.~~People's N.T.

The Athanasian Creed

"[Jesus Christ] sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there he shall come to judge the living and the dead; at his coming all men have to rise again with their bodies and will render an account of their own deeds; and those who have done good will go into life everlasting, but those who have done evil, into eternal fire [Rom. 2:611]. This is the Catholic faith, unless everyone believes this faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved" (Athanasian Creed [A.D. 400]).

Few truths are more often or more clearly proclaimed in Scripture than that of the general judgment. To it the prophets of the Old Testament refer when they speak of the "Day of the Lord" (Joel 2:31; Ezekiel 13:5; Isaiah 2:12), in which the nations will be summoned to judgment. In the New Testament the second Parusia, or coming of Christ as Judge of the world, is an oft-repeated doctrine. The Saviour Himself not only foretells the event but graphically portrays its circumstances (Matthew 24:27 sqq.; 25:31 sqq.). The Apostles give a most prominent place to this doctrine in their preaching (Acts 10:42; 17:31) and writings (Romans 2:5-16; 14:10; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 2 Timothy 4:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:5; James 5:7). Besides the name Parusia (parousia), or Advent (1 Corinthians 15:23; 2 Thessalonians 2:19), the Second Coming is also called Epiphany, epiphaneia, or Appearance (2 Thessalonians 2:8; 1 Timothy 6:14; 2 Timothy 4:1; Titus 2:13), and Apocalypse (apokalypsis), or Revelation (2 Thessalonians 2:7; 1 Peter 4:13). The time of the Second Coming is spoken of as "that Day" (2 Timothy 4:8), "the day of the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 5:2), "the day of Christ" (Philemon 1:6), "the day of the Son of Man" (Luke 17:30), "the last day" (John 6:39-40).
2

The belief in the general judgment has prevailed at all times and in all places within the Church. It is contained as an article of faith in all the ancient creeds: "He ascended into heaven. From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead" (Apostles' Creed). He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead" (Nicene Creed). "From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead, at whose coming all men must rise with their bodies and are to render an account of their deeds" (Athanasian Creed). Relying on the authority of Papias, several Fathers of the first four centuries advanced the theory of a thousand years' terrestrial reign of Christ with the saints to precede the end of the World (see article on MILLENNIUM). Though this idea is interwoven with the eschatological teachings of those writers, it in no way detracted from their belief in a universal world-judgment. Patristic testimony to this dogma is clear and unanimous.
3

The Roman Catechism thus explains why, besides the particular judgment of each individual, a general one should also be passed on the assembled world: "The first reason is founded on the circumstances that most augment the rewards or aggravate the punishments of the dead. Those who depart this life sometimes leave behind them children who imitate the conduct of their parents, descendants, followers; and others who adhere to and advocate the example, the language, the conduct of those on whom they depend, and whose example they follow; and as the good or bad influence or example, affecting as it does the conduct of many, is to terminate only with this world; justice demands that, in order to form a proper estimate of the good or bad actions of all, a general judgment should take place.... Finally, it was important to prove, that in prosperity and adversity, which are sometimes the promiscuous lot of the good and of the bad, everything is ordered by an all-wise, all-just, and all-ruling Providence: it was therefore necessary not only that rewards and punishments should await us in the next life but that they should be awarded by a public and general judgment." - Catholic Encyclopedia

Preacherdude left out the fact that there are two judgments:
1. at the time of death.
2. at the time of the return of Christ.

Actually, this leads to a very good question.
If one is still alive at the time of the Second Coming, does one get just get one judgment?

Jesus Christ has been given the authority to judge all the earth (Ro. 14:9-11; Philippians 2:9-11). Although his judgment is already working in our lives, there is a future, final judgment when Christ returns (25:31-46) and every-one's life is reviewed and evaluated. This will not be confined to unbelievers; Christians too will face a judgment. Their eternal destiny is secure, but Jesus will look at how they handled gifts, opportunities, and responsibilities in order to determine their heavenly rewards. At the time of judgment, God will deliver the righteous and condemn the wicked. We should not judge others' salvation; that is God's work....

Being a good person will not get you into Heaven FACT. The list you put in your comment is great things you have done. But its not the king of works the Bible is talking about! The kind they are talking about is this ("What kind of works have you done to get people to come to Christ")....

Matt. 23:

39 For I say unto you, you shall not see me again, till you shall say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Ye shall not see me henceforth. This seems to imply that the temple shall be deserted when he leaves it. With his departure the presence of God departs. He was the Lord of the temple.

Till ye shall say. These were his last words in the temple precincts, but they do not shut out all hope. Even yet when the Jews shall join in the hosannahs of those who, on the Sunday before, had sung his praises, and cry, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord Mt. 21:9, they may be permitted to behold their Messiah. Many have seen in this passage a promise of the final conversion of Israel. Zec. 12:10 Rom. 11:26 2 Cor. 3:15 seem to favor the same view.

When Christ abandoned the temple in Jerusalem, it was only fit for the destroyer. If we should drive him out of his spiritual temple, the church, it would be left as dead as the body without the spirit.~~People's N.T.
