Shalom, Blessed be the name of our Lord Jesus Christ … it is good to remind ourselves of things we had previously learned or been taught. The Lord in the Old Testament prevented the children of Israel from eating animals that are not chewed the cud.
Chewing as interpreted by the Bible is not about releasing air from the stomach or vomiting… No!.
Chewing is a behavior Animals have after eating grass they store the food in their bellies and then they have the ability to return the food back and chew it again and then swallow it when it has been chewed better…
Now the animal like a pig does not chew the cud, so it is unclean … Revealing the behavior of some people who have no recollections of what they have learned, and have no tendency to think again and again when they have eaten, have no time to go back to meditating, (to chew again the food). … And that makes them easy to forget all the good things that God has done for them in the past, or to digest unclean spiritual foods.
But if we learn to remind ourselves of what we have learned in the past, and to think again and again and meditate, we place ourselves in a better position to defeat the evil one, and so in the spirit we are seen as creatures that are not defiled before God (clean to God).
So today let’s remind ourselves a bit about judgment. Let us briefly consider the judgment of the Lord Jesus to help us know what our future judgment will be after this Life.
As we know the Lord was accused by the Jews (ie Israel) but was crucified by the Romans (ie Gentiles). So both communities: Jews and we Gentiles are guilty of the Blood of Jesus. That is why redemption and forgiveness are for all of us. Because we have all sinned.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”
And as the Lord Jesus was exalted before the judgment seat upon this earth … And he was judged before all men (Jews and Gentiles), and gave an account of all things.
Likewise on the day of judgment all the nations of the earth will also stand before him (Jesus) on the white throne. And each one will give an account of what he has done while he/she was here on earth.
John 19:13 “When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha”
So what you do today remember that one day it will be brought into Judgment.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil”.
And again the Bible says.
Revelation 20: 11 “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.
The Lord Jesus and all His righteousness stood before Herod’s Judgment Seat. Who are we to avoid the coming judgment?
And let us not present that day in a group of people who will be condemned to eternal death in the lake of fire but will be judged to be rewarded in conquering the world.
Matthew 25:19 “After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents”.
Keeping in mind that there is no second chance after death, man is destined to die only once, and after death is judgment (Hebrews 9:27). No prayer can lift a person out of the fire of hell into a paradise
If you die in sin, you are already lost forever. The Bible says that where the tree falleth, there it shall be.(Ecclesiastes 11: 3) … that means if you die and go to hell you will be there forever.
Have you stood firm in the faith? .. Are you sure that if Christ comes today you will go with him to heaven?. The Lord help you, and the Lord help us all in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Be very blessed.
