TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have made you and formed you in your mother’s womb to accomplish the plans I have for you. Don’t set limits on what I can do in you and through you. Expect Me to do the impossible in your life.
READY FOR THE PARTY?
As Christians, we passed the first test God gives in Revelation 20 – the Great White Throne Judgment. How? Christ is our holiness. The second test is the Judgment Seat of Christ or the “Bema Seat” Judgment.
This test is for those who’ve been found in the Lamb’s Book of Life. It is after those who are dead, and have been judged unholy. In this second test, He judges the holy according to how they served. That judgment is not of punishment, but one of rewards. This test is a party!
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is; and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
This is something you need to know: you will participate in this and it doesn’t need to blindside you. There will be a test. Here’s what will be on this test: Did you serve? Did you conform your life to the image of God’s plan?
Again, this is not a heaven or hell issue. This is a reward issue. It is about how you gave and served. Was your service man-made for your lifetime or was it Kingdom born for eternity?
The understanding of being rewarded is faith-based because it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. In 1 Corinthians 3, the Bible says, “Jesus Christ is the One who laid the foundation and you’re building on top of that foundation.” The fact that you’re saved is the foundation of how you live the rest of your life.
Will your works die with you or will you serve the Kingdom venture? Will you be about Kingdom business – rescuing the lost and hurting through redemption in Jesus? Are you demonstrating Jesus, making Him famous and people are getting saved?
There will be a test. The Lord Jesus Christ has given you the cheat sheet. If you have given your heart to Jesus, you can serve now and on that day when you stand before the Lord, you will be rewarded. It will be a good day to hear Him say, “well done good and faithful servant.”
