The Final Judgment

Message Notes

1. God Sent Us A Savior, Not A Condemner
(John 3:16-17 NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (17) For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

2. This Salvation Is Through The Cross Of Jesus
(Romans 3:20-24 NLT) For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are. (21) But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. (22) We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. (23) For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (24) Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.

3. For Believers – Instant Entry To Heaven
(1 Corinthians 15:51-52 NIV) Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— (52) 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.

4. After That – The Book Of Life Will Judge Every Man’s Works.. And It Will Be Fair And Right
(Revelations 20:11-15 NLT) 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. (12) 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. (13) The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave[a] gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. (14) Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. (15) And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

(Psalm 98:9 NIV) let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

Power of the Cross: One for All

Message Notes

The Exchange: Barabbas and Jesus
(Luke 23-17-21 NIV) But the whole crowd shouted, “Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!” (19) (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.) (20) Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again. (21) But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

(Luke23:24-25 NIV) So Pilate decided to grant their demand. (25) He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will.

The Exchange: Me, You, and Jesus
(Romans 5:7-9 NIV) Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. (8) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (9) Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

(1Peter 2:24 NLT) He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.

Power of the cross that took sin away

Message Notes

(Luke 23:32-34 ERV) There were also two criminals led out with Jesus to be killed. (33) They were led to a place called “The Skull.” There the soldiers nailed Jesus to the cross. They also nailed the criminals to crosses beside Jesus—one on the right and the other on the left. (34) Jesus said, “Father, forgive them. They don’t know what they are doing.” The soldiers threw dice to divide Jesus’ clothes between them.

(Luke 23:39-43 ERV) One of the criminals hanging there began to shout insults at Jesus: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Then save yourself, and save us too!” (40) But the other criminal stopped him. He said, “You should fear God. All of us will die soon. (41) You and I are guilty. We deserve to die because we did wrong. But this man has done nothing wrong.” (42) Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you begin ruling as king!” (43) Then Jesus said to him, “I promise you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

(Luke 23:44-47 ERV) It was about noon, but it turned dark throughout the land until three o’clock in the afternoon, (45) because the sun stopped shining. The curtain in the Temple was torn into two pieces. (46) Jesus shouted, “Father, I put my life in your hands!” After Jesus said this, he died. (47) The army officer there saw what happened. He praised God, saying, “I know this man was a good man!”

1.Sin was crucified…and died!
(Romans 6:6-8 NLT) We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. (7) For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. (8) And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him.

2.Sin was forgiven without us working for it
(Romans 4:6-8 NLT) David also spoke of this when he described the happiness of those who are declared righteous without working for it: (7)“Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight.(8)Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin.”

(Romans 4:6-8 NIV) David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: (7)“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.(8)Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”[a]

(John 13:16-17 NIV) Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. (17) Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

The Power of the Cross

1.Thief on the cross
(Luke 23:39-43 NIV) One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah?

But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. ” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

2.Roman Centurion
(Luke 23:44-47 NIV) It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.

The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.”

(Matthew 27:54 NIV) When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

3.You and I!
(John 3:16-17 NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

4.Power to forgive my past
(Colossians 2:13-14 NLT) You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

5.Power to change my future
(Romans 5:17-18 TPT) Death once held us in its grip, and by the blunder of one man, death reigned as king over humanity. But now, how much more are we held in the grip of grace and continue reigning as kings in life, enjoying our regal freedom through the gift of perfect righteousness in the one and only Jesus, the Messiah! In other words, just as condemnation came upon all people through one transgression, so through one righteous act of Jesus’ sacrifice, the perfect righteousness that makes us right with God and leads us to a victorious life now available to all.

(41) We deserve to die for our crimes, but this man hasn’t done anything wrong.” (42) Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” (43) And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
