Why are we called to work so hard now for the Lord Jesus Christ, why must we who are saved bear our cross and follow Him? Because that is the biblical pattern ordained by God, and it's what must be done in order to receive crowns at the Judgement Seat of Christ. An exciting thought, but be forewarned! While salvation is a free gift, our millennial inheritance is based on works that must make it through the coming fire. Do you have works, and if so, will they be polished or perished in the day you stand before Jesus Christ? You should settle that question now while you still can.
"And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." Revelation 5:9,10 (KJB)
On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are looking at our Millennial inheritance that we will receive after the catching away of the Church, and it will be largely based on our performance right here and now while we live on the earth. Read anywhere you like in Matthew, Mark and Luke, and you will see much written concerning the constitution of the coming Kingdom. In the parable of the pounds, those who gave the Lord an increase of His investment were rewarded, while those who added nothing received nothing, and indeed lost what little they had. Look at any of the people who got something done for God â€“ Moody, Spurgeon, Corrie Ten Boom, Sheffey, Whitefield â€“ and they all have one thing in common. They all gave everything they had to the service of the Lord Jesus.
