TEXT: Revelation 20:11-15
This past week, acting partly in response to international demands and domestic critics, President Obama announced that he was expanding U.S. efforts to defeat the terrorist group known as ISIS or the Islamic State. I believe we all would agree that it is the right thing for our nation to do, and we support all other nations who are confronting this terrorist army, which the CIA has stated could be made up of as many as 31,000 fighters. Right now, it seems almost as though they cannot be stopped. In fact, just a few hours ago, they released the video of a third beheading -- this time of a British aid worker. The governments of the world may not be able to deliver the complete justice that ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram deserve, but perhaps they can give these criminals a taste of the justice that is coming their way.
There often seems to be a lack of fair punishment of evil in our society. But, as we have seen from God's Word in the previous two messages in this series, there will come a day when every evil deed that was ever committed that was not washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ will be brought to the light, and the person who committed that deed will receive the punishment they deserve. “Vengeance is mine,” saith the Lord, “I will repay.”
This event is known as The Great White Throne Judgment. Jesus is the Judge. And every person who did not receive Christ as their Savior while they were alive will be there. We also have learned that, at this judgment, books will be opened which contain a record of every evil deed each person at this judgment has committed.
