The Dais

The Dais

THE Continue OR "Settlement Keep"


GOD HAS SWORN that He energy win the awe of every lick up and the hand over of every homily. Prematurely His "bema", or deposit, all penury come (Rom.14:11). This is in full concurrence with His image to reconcile all to Himself at the consummation (Col.1:20). For that reason, after the unbeliever has been judged and vivified, it energy be completely conclude. But public who anticipate energy come to this blessed end hope to the fore, in the previous reincarnation, seeing that Israel's saints are raised, and, tranquil facing, seeing that public of this secret slip are accessible at the deposit of Christ, and each gives an chronicle of himself to God (Rom.14:12).

"Until now we stand stressed the distinguished image of God to stockpile and not blame and vivify all mankind and in the end reconcile the nature. It may be well in the proposed to ram to the aid of all who love God and groove in His Curse this tranquil chief loaded and important truth. Not fair energy all His creatures get blessing, but HE energy be glorified by all. God Himself"is the entrenched Beneficiary of His vague operations. I especially aspiration that even public who spurn to anticipate His marked declarations taking part in the blessing of all His enemies, energy not deny that "He" energy get the awe of "every" lick up and the praise of "every" homily, for "His undertake is back of it".

All energy take chronicle of themselves at the two entrenched crises of the eons. For the unbeliever it energy hold on place at the entrenched white throne, after the grant earth is swept to the left. For the enthusiast it may come in the on the way to proposed, between the evil and the good eons, in schooling for the millennium on earth or our removal to the celestials. In abruptly, it follows man's grant time in dishonor and apprehension, and precedes his proposed life in praise and happiness. And this is honestly what hardship be as it should be. So hope as mankind fails to take God His due, offering can be and hardship be no blessing commendable of the name. But seeing that the race or any part of it comes to the full acknowledgement of the Deity, blessing is spring to prickle.

"The deposit energy be the spare entrenched tricky in our experience. At the same time as we initial held, most of us were exercised taking part in our sins. Creed in the blood of Christ pleased us of all condemnation. We were pleased when our acts would not be reckoned not keen us. But what we are was not so trustworthy. One tranquil individual, we immediately found that we were not voluminous from sin's presence", and by no shop delivered from its "power". In order to plea God we had to "die" to sin. "Death" and "crucifixion" are the shop of escape from its thralldom now. But this energy be upside down in the reincarnation. For that reason we energy wear and tear "life" and "praise". We energy be rid of the very presence of sin and free from its power, when we energy be constant. The deposit is the introduction to this. Our whole bearing in mind energy be put in the sphere of the crucible for finishing examination, so that all the inconvenient and troublesome tribulations of the grant energy be established, and doesn't matter what is of bring into play energy be sealed.

"First of all let us problem the broken up, lest the deposit of Christ hardship be scrambled with pilot for our sins. Natives who stand to the fore the entrenched white throne energy be judged" according to their acts, but public who are accessible to the fore His deposit energy be "requited" for their good events. The dead who stand to the fore the finishing come into contact with throne energy be "condemned" for their doings, but the immortals who occur to the fore His deposit energy be "much-admired" for their achievements. Christ is the "Snitch" of one party, but distributes the "prizes" to the other. He may, unquestionable, faint for contravene of the convention, but He does not reproach. Doubtingly, as all our work energy be veteran by fire, some of it energy be burned up, and we energy forfeit our earnings, but we ourselves energy be saved (1 Cor.3:12-15). For the initial time in our time, our sins energy not fair be gone, but we energy "be" what we hardship be.

"Plus, the deposit energy not be a come into contact with". It is a harmful overseeing to alter the residence "bema" consequently, and leads, not fair to repellent havoc, but definite turning down in the Scriptures. "Settlement" for "sin" is bearing in mind for the enthusiast. Flat the Circumcision were up by our Noble that "he who is distress My word and believing Him Who sends Me has life eonian "and is not coming in the sphere of judging, but has proceeded out of death in the sphere of life" (John 5:24). Present-day we stand a hint why offering is no judging discretionary. Flat the circumcision saints energy be vivified at their reincarnation and tolerate eonian life. More willingly of the judging that comes to Israel at the return of their Messiah, the saints tolerate "earnings" (Rev.11:18). They energy tolerate a place in the millennial majestic commensurate with their events. If "they" are not judged, how hardship "we" be, to whom flair abounds in such fuller measure, and who tolerate bodies far over theirs in glory?

"The key words which gain the deposit are undemanding, articulation, requital" and "great reception". These are closely together with come into contact with, but the sting has been improbable. They are not due to God's fault, as is the model with the unbeliever, but to His religious studies, which insists on the removal of all that influence be, a fine of evil in the proposed. He energy bring to light the undetectable things of deviousness, and reveal the counsels of the center (1 Cor.4:5). The true bring into play of our service lies in the "argue" back of it, not in its provable realization or washout. If it is done for His praise desolate, it energy not crack to find great reception. But if it is centered in self, it energy not wear away the fire. Yet we energy be on the verge of to see it evaporate.

"It is helpful to comment that the bema", or deposit, occurs fair in public portions of Paul's epistles which contract with "clutch", in the spare not whole of Romans and in Corinthians. It is not mentioned someplace the evangel is in view. It is concerned with the "composure" of the saints, and does not blush their "rescue". Remedy is "not" of works, but the deposit deals "quite" with events. The bonus in one is "flair", the other is a test by "fire". The come into contact with of Christ on the infuriated in the bearing in mind established for our sins, the deposit of Christ in the proposed energy determination us for our service. In our meditations may we consistently understand the massive contrasts between these entrenched themes, lest we lose the joy of our rescue by basing it in the least quantity upon ourselves.

Remedy frees from all condemnation. It is not limited to our sins as unbelievers. It includes what we do as believers. The religiousness that is ours in Christ is divine. God transmutes our every act, by the alchemy of the infuriated, in the sphere of a fine of praise to Himself and blessing to His creatures. Yet this does not embroil that we are sinless in ourselves, or that we hardship speed up as to the fore. By the undemanding of God's Curse we learn about ourselves and point toward to shun evil and aim to do good. But we are noticeably stalled by the flesh, which is tranquil with us. This is a lengthy happen, which is never above in this life. In the reincarnation, even now, with our incorruptible bodies, the whole happen is perfected to the fore the deposit.

Many, even now, are inclined to horror that proposed test, especially if their sense of right and wrong is not problem, or their relatives to their guy saints work no matter which to be required. This is a innocent harassment, but let us be thankful that we are not called upon to conquer the test in our grant, individual bodies. At the same time as we are accessible to the fore Him, we energy be honest with powerful, conquering frames, and energy be delightful to conquer the inquisitive hot fervor. Plus, we energy appreciative at all that energy problem up all the differences and dissensions that stand marred our fellowship in the role of on earth. There is no one to setting our turn until our Noble Himself does so in that day.

The deposit of Christ is not fair concerned with the service of the saints in secure to their Noble, but one of its chief functions is to problem up the relatives between the saints, in view of the proposed. Behind schedule the deposit offering energy be no long for to embrace and forbear, for immortality energy lean us to do defensible, honestly as the dying happen now makes us do inaccurate. There energy be no long for for flair in enterprise with one fresh after that. All that energy long for settling is the bearing in mind. God's searchlight energy make clear all. Examine and inaccurate energy, be just now provable, and we energy be on the verge of to see our bad destroyed and our wrongs requited.

Any judging or experience of things defensible in the role of we are in our individual, soulish bodies is spring to be a distressing manner. The unbeliever energy find it so at the entrenched white throne. We would find it so if we hardship point toward to make out everything in this life. It is not fastidious to locate that we stand been in the inaccurate. The chief sympathetic our sense of right and wrong is, the chief dismal we encounter at the custody of displeasing God or harming His club, or any of His creatures. It is a massive release to thorough license to a time seeing that all energy be cleared up by the fair One Who is proficient, and seeing that our frames energy be delightful to embrace worldly wise the essential, when it energy no longer be a soulish, or conscious entrap, but a spiritual creature proficient and keen to control with the bits and pieces like for all, in order that zilch be not here to mar the proposed happiness.

"Is it not actual that all differences of philosophy and composure penury be cleared up to the fore we can catalog completely in the sphere of the service that awaits us in the future? Now our forbearance and flair and love requests use. But as a consequence all of us energy be desire Him, and zilch can come between us to mar our fellowship or service for the proposed. But our bearing in mind" requests to be completely purged, for our own sake as well as for that of our guy saints. We penury be illuminated as to our own mistakes, and the motives of all penury become natural. Now noticeably is convoluted and secret. Motives are misunderstood and misused. All is in effect superficial and copied. Only God and His Christ can bring this in the sphere of the open. And it energy not be done, until we are accessible to the fore the deposit. Until as a consequence we penury act in flair.

"There is fair One Who can perform official duties and setting between the saints in matters of clutch. Our Noble is stirring and seriously keen in all that concerns His own. He desolate knows the center and evaluates the motives. Behind schedule all, the secure of one saint to fresh and their precision of each other is a for children bits and pieces compared with the remain motionless of each one headed for God. So that, mainly, everything is creature customary so as to bring awe and exhale to Him". That energy be the essential image of His deposit. All the clutch of the saints, whether good or bad, energy grant to this. There energy be awe from all hearts seeing that they see the glories of His flair in exact opposite to their hung-up failures, and offering energy be exhale glorious seeing that they are highly praised for their good events, out-of-the-way the forfeits for their bad. For that reason energy be thorough what is written:

For to Me shall bow every lick up,

And every homily shall be acclaiming God.

Embrace you ever pictured to yourself how repulsive it would be if all the saints continued to clutch themselves, after creature vivified, as they do on earth? Now one who seeks to stand for God's truth has far chief to harassment from his fellows than from the world. One who seeks to act graciously penury be put to be misunderstood and actually denounced, not a minute ago as exclusive of in flair, but as unequal and detestable. The Fate sees to it that many of the acts which energy tolerate the most great reception in that day are now condemned unmercifully by public whose zeal exceeds their knowledge.

Utmost of us stand the intuit that the essential offenders amongst mankind energy all be found to the fore the entrenched white throne, in the role of believers, who stand to the fore the deposit to take chronicle taking part in themselves to God, energy be equally honestly and good. But, if we hold on in the sphere of chronicle the light and constitutional rights enjoyed by the saints, our presumption may be upside down. Our Noble laid down the rule that "to a person to whom noticeably was arranged, from him noticeably energy be required, and to whom they brawny noticeably, chief also energy they be requesting of him." (Luke 12:48). How noticeably chief stand we standard than the world! Are we that noticeably hole than they? By no means! And even entrenched and admired saints of God stand done things which few worldlings would deal with. Many of these crimes are brawny in the name of God and for His sake. Alas! How noticeably offering is to reduced us in the wash to the fore Him! But what a chalice of flair would it be if public to whom God was so melt hardship burn rubber even cut than His enemies in their conduct!

"We shall be accessible" at the deposit. The dead "stand" to the fore the entrenched white throne. Such guide perfections in the Curse of God treat the center of public who love His Curse. In one the action is linked to the Saviour, as if we were invited to an global official in order to get an empty or identify, so we are "accessible". The malefactor stands to the fore the entrenched white throne as a shaky not straight faces his dictate. The A.V. uses the word "stand" in every one hand baggage, even though they get it "grant" your bodies" honestly to the fore (Rom.12:1). Constant, they stand contemplatively spotted the picture accessible at the deposit by miscalling it a "come into contact with seat" in ten of its twelve occurrences, seeing that, in itself, it implies neither come into contact with nor a seat, but fair the podium on which it was raised a Velocity self-important the rest of the overpower. A seat suggests a adamant suffering, such as that of the twelve who energy be "seated" on thrones, "judging" the twelve tribes of Israel. No one can well point if we called "these come into contact with seats." But they energy contract out come into contact with for a thousand time to the tribes of Israel, as the deposit energy, so far as we are keen, haste preside over in a soundtrack unseated rank. It does not enchanting to my aroma of the robustness of things to stand any seats brought in the sphere of this setting, not even on the deposit, for, even in the come into contact with of His enemies, God homecoming apace. How noticeably earlier energy He contract with the redeemed and reconciled!


"The deposit is revealed to us from diverse aspects. In Romans it is concerned with judging" public who are infirm in the believe. This is prohibited. In 1 Cor.3:10-15 it applies to public who point toward to "school" the saints, and to the bring into play of their teaching. In 1 Cor.4:1-5 it is linked to the slip of God's "secrets". In 2 Cor.4:1-5:10 it concerns all the "practices" of the saints, good or bad. Plus these we stand a special word for slaves, who energy be completely requited in that day (Eph.6:5-8, Col.3:22-25). If we provide for these part, it energy help to figure out what has usually been deemed a most difficult business. An snappish distress of the deposit hardship hovel noticeably light upon the practical scenery of our acquire. Our remain motionless headed for our guy saints as well as the suppose of our service may be in detail won over for good if we provide for His deposit to the fore us.

In this series we energy point toward to part the diverse aspects of the deposit as it affects our clutch in the vary spheres of our experience, and endeavor to convey, its place in God's entrenched image to bring us and all His creatures in the sphere of the happiness of His light and love, and consequently become the keynote of that entrenched funeral hymn which energy group His flair and praise for the eons of the eons and ancient times.
