HERE COMES THE JUDGE (37 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
Dr. James Merritt
REVELATION 20:11-15

INTRODUCTION

1. THE LAST PERSON WHO WILL EVER DIE HAS DIED. THE
LAST PERSON WHO WILL EVER BE RAISED FROM THE DEAD HAS
BEEN RAISED. NOW COMES THE FINAL FULFILLMENT OF ONE OF
THE MOST SOLEMN STATEMENTS IN ALL OF THE BIBLE,
HEBREWS 9:27, "AND AS IT IS APPOINTED FOR MEN TO DIE
ONCE, BUT AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT."

2. EVERY PERSON WHO LIVED WITHOUT JESUS AND DIED
WITHOUT JESUS, NOW STANDS BEFORE JESUS AT THIS GREAT

DIED TO JUDGMENT. WHEN I GAVE MY LIFE TO THE LORD
JESUS CHRIST I DIED TO SIN. UNTO GOD AND WILL REIGN
WITH HIM FOREVER AND EVER. THAT IS WHY THE SCRIPTURES
SAY, "THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE
WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS." (ROM. 8:lA)

5. BUT FOR THE SINNER GOD STILL HAS SOME UNFINISHED
BUSINESS. THE BIBLE SAYS IN ROMANS 6:23. "THE WAGES OF
SIN IS DEATH." FOR THE SINNER "PAY DAY" HAS ARRIVED.
THE JUDGE HAS BEEN SEATED. THE COURT HAS BEEN
