CHRISTIANITY: FALSE DOCTRINE, FALSE TEACHING
Part 5: The Last Judgment
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
We bear witness to the laws of God recorded in the scriptures. All people of the planet earth believe in something. A belief in God often determines how a person distinguishes good from evil. Therefore those that donít believe in God often think that bad is good and good is bad.
There are also those that claim a belief in God who have a lack of love for anybody or anything that is different from them. These people are not godly. They have embraced evil and Satan. Meanwhile, they feel threatened by other religions and denounce others who do not share their views.
The road to Peace and Paradise is not tarnished by hatred, malice, envy, selfishness and the discrimination of other people based on race, ethnic origins, class etc. We would be remiss if we did not note that many groups are also discriminated against in our society. Often those that believe in God are accused of discrimination against those that embrace a Gay lifestyle.
Therefore, we state that it is not discrimination to note that same sex relationships are a violation of the before ordained laws of nature. The laws of any society on earth are first revealed in the laws of God the Creator. However, man in his simple wisdom and knowledge also establishes laws in the societies in which we live.
Thus, the attempt by man to deny Godís law when it comes to homosexual relationships and for example abortion is a wicked sin and abomination. Man did not create the world and its people. Thus, he does not have the power nor authority to tamper with the laws of God. However many people cannot distinguish between good and evil. Therefore, many people that claim a belief in God have very little faith when they tamper with the laws of Creation.
However it is written that a Great Day of Judgment looms on the horizon. The attack of Godís law only hastens the day. Daniel means God is my judge. In the Book of Daniel we also find one of the greatest recordings of faith. The Book of Daniel also reveals that God is sovereign. However, the dreams and visions of the Prophet Daniel have been called the key to all Biblical prophecies. The Prophecy of the last days as recorded in the last chapter (Chapter 12) gives us closing statements on our discussion on Judging/Judge.
We will record and review the first four verses in Daniel 12 to reveal this great Prophecy and His coming judgment.
12:1 ďAnd at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the book.Ē
The Prophecy of the future is revealed in this verse to note that the Jews and all other nations are the people of God. Thus, Godís people will face hardships. Nevertheless, a great promise of hope will temper the sufferings of the believers at the last judgment. Also, see Jeremiah 30:7 and Matthew 24:21. In Hebrews 1:13-14 we see an explanation about the duties of Angels.
The writer of the Book of Hebrews refers to the Old Testament to show the greatness of Christ in comparison to Angels. Thus, Angels are spiritual beings who act as Godís messengers. They are created by God and are under His authority. (See Colossians 1:16)
Meanwhile, Angels have several functions and duties:
1. Serve Believers; Hebrews 1:14.
2. Protect the helpless; Matthew 18:10-11.
3. They proclaim Godís messages; Revelations 14:6-12.
4. They execute Godís Judgment; Acts 12:1-23, Revelations 20:1-3.
Daniel 12:2 ďAnd many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.Ē
This scripture refers to the resurrection of both the good and the bad. The teaching of the bodily resurrection for the righteous and the wicked was an idea and not common knowledge during that time. (For other Old Testament references to the resurrection see Job 19:25-26, Psalm, 16:10 and Isaiah 26:19).
12:3 ďAnd they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.Ē
This scripture does not refer to stars in a crown. God tells us that we can shine like stars by bringing people to Christ. Thus, if we share the Word of God with other people we will shine.
12:4 ďBut thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.Ē
The Prophecy noted in this verse has been sealed and kept secret to give people in the end times the hope that God will conquer all evil. Meanwhile, knowledge will be increased.
This is predicted in Isaiah 11:9.
Mountain in this verse refers to the government or kingdom of Christ. Earth shall be full is a prediction of the final and complete extension of the Gospel throughout the world. This prediction was fulfilled according to Romans 10:18, 16:26, and Colossians 1:23.
As all of humankind will go to rest, some will arise to receive the gift of eternal life. So will be the coming Prophecy of the great Prophets as inspired by Almighty God.
