JOYFUL ASSEMBLY - PART 4

FRIDAY 23 DECEMBER 2022


There is a great celebration in heaven when it comes to the reception of born again Christians who have newly received Christ as Saviour. And there is still great conviction needed for the continued profession of our faith in the Lord, with life-long sense of our divine origin. Let's find out more about the next revelation in their versified sequence below.

Reference: Hebrews 12:22-24 Amplified (AMP) "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels [in festive gathering], and to the general assembly and assembly of the firstborn who are registered [as citizens] in heaven, and to God, who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect [bringing them to their final glory], and to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant [uniting God and man], and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance]."


The first time I read this Scripture, I was profoundly astonished, in terms of the magnitude or strength of the Godkind or Divine community I have become part of. More excitingly, today's article is majored on God, the judge of all. Beloved, we have come to God, who is indeed the judge of all. This means that all in heaven and on earth are accountable to one head, God. A helpful verse, in line with this truth reads, "The heavens declare His righteousness, for God Himself is judge!" (Psalm 50:6 ESV).


Beloved, the saints on earth, the myriads of angels, the saints in heaven, God Himself and the Lord Jesus Christ, pertain in the same community in Zion, and together we constitute a great and glorious brotherhood and origin. In another way, some of the angels are in heaven around God's throne; some are in this world, and also some are angels of light. Then, part of the redeemed saints have a perfected spirit because they are in heaven. Then the rest of us are the body of Christ on earth, yet we are all united as one family, and have one head and Father, who is the Judge of all. Got it?


As born again Christians, no matter where we are, and no matter who we are in this world, whether Jews or Gentiles, so to speak, we all have one name, and one Saviour, and we all belong to one family - God, the judge of all. This glorious family will at the last day, be gathered together in heaven, after the last trumpet and will surround or environ the throne of God. To that effect, 1st Corinthians 15:52 (NIV) reads, "In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: "Death is swallowed up in victory." Now watch this: Apostle Paul noted that this process will fulfil the prophesy in Isaiah 25:8 which reads, "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it" (NIV).


Moreover, as the Judge of all, God will host the final Judgment according to Revelation 20:11-15 (NLT), reading: "And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from His presence, but they found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God's throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire." Stay tuned for part 5. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Psalm 58:11; Psalm 82:8; Psalm 96:12-13; Hebrews 4:13.


Guided Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for teaching me the matters pertaining my divine origin. Almighty God, you are the fountain of my salvation, the supreme ruler of heaven and earth and the judge of all. Your Word is settled in the heavens forever, and you have established the saints on earth to reign according to your will and purpose. Therefore, I'm delighted to function as the perfect representative of Christ in my world, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
