The Witness, Accountability, and Judgment

The Witness, Accountability, and Judgment

Today I begin the task of explaining to you the transformation that you must enter to come into God’s Kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven; and the only way for you to understand about your homeland is for your mind, and your way of thinking must be transformed. And the thing that does this is what you call the bible, but what I call the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven, which teaches us about the Kingdom we come from.

Let’s begin in Romans 12:2,

2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

• This scripture is a 2-fold command from our King.

1. He is telling you how to be transformed and,
2. How you must live in this world until you go back to the Homeland.

The Constitution or Bible as you know it, serves many purposes, but for this teaching you will discover two kingdom principles and its main purpose, and that is to be a witness against you as you stand judgment before Christ in his court of law! These two principles are:

1. Judgment (How did you live your life for God),
2. Accountability (did you obey all of the terms of these instructions).

  • You see, there’s more to the Bible than just reading the Bible. You must obey the terms of God’s Constitution.

Terms: What does God mean when He uses the word term?
Definition: In the Kingdom it means to submit. To reduce to submission or condition.  As in, entering into a covenant with God. In this book of instructions (Constitution), God made promises to us, but these promises come with conditions or terms, and in order for you to benefit from these promises you must submit to the conditions of His terms.

In other words you must obey every word. And to obey every word means we must live by this book of instructions or the Homeland’s Constitution; it is a command from God! So today it is my honor to instruct you on the importance of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Please write these scriptures down to go back and study them again and again.

Disclaimer!!!!

What I’m about to give you will incriminate you – you won’t be able to play dumb any longer, you will be held accountable, why? Because that which you hear goes into your heart and it is the heart that God looks at, and you will no longer be able to use the excuse “I didn’t know!” Let’s begin with the witness who will hold you accountable.

THE WITNESS

John 5:34, 36
34 Of course, I have no need of human witnesses, but I say these things so you might be saved;  36 But I have a greater witness than John—my teachings and my miracles. The Father gave me these works to accomplish, and they prove that he sent me.

Deuteronomy 31:24-26
24 When Moses had finished writing this entire body of instruction in a book, 25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant: 26 “Take this Book of Instruction and place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD your God, so it may remain there as a witness against the people of Israel.

Now you that you know…who the witness is…the Word, and this word is called the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven. Just as this Kingdom (America) has a constitution that gives you rights and privileges, so too does the bible. But remember you have to Constitutions to abide by…doesn’t seem fair does it? Well let me put it this way. There are people like myself who had to abide and live under two sets of laws  and they are the men and women who serve in the military. We (they), must abide by the Uniformed Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), as well as the laws of the land…America’s Constitution in addition to the laws of the Bible (God’s Constitution). So that’s really three sets of laws I was, (they) are under. And you say…its too hard to live by God’s laws?!!!! May I suggest that you really learn to pray, and thank God for creating the one’s He created to protect this country, because they carry a lot of weight (laws) on their shoulders in addition to an 80-100 pound backpack.

Now let’s look at the first of the two kingdom principles that you should learn to live by, and be prepared for, on your day of judgment.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Deuteronomy 29:29
29 “The LORD our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.

The Lord says my people are perishing for lack of knowledge, and this is because you are so focused on the knowledge of this world, when it is the knowledge of the Kingdom of God that should be your main focus.
Jesus states in Matthew 6:33; “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else…”. As you are seeking God’s Kingdom you will discover how to survive in this world God’s way, and not be of this world.

Matthew 4:4
4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone,  but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Luke 11:28
28 Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.”  The word “hear” means to obey and live by. God rewards people for their accountability.

Luke 24:25, 27
25 Then Jesus said to them, “You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures;  27 Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.  Just as I am doing with you today taking you through the scriptures to help you to save your soul from Hell.

This is Jesus explaining Accountability.

Luke 24:44
44 Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.”

  • Here Jesus is referring to the Old Testament, because we are held accountable to read and live by it as well.

Ephesians 2:20
20 Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.

FINISH WITH…

Deuteronomy 32:47

47 These instructions are not empty words—they are your life! By obeying them you will enjoy a long life in the land you will occupy when you cross the Jordan River.”

Psalm 19:7-11

7 The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 8 The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living. 9 Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. 10 They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. 11 They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.

Now let’s talk about Judgment!

27 And he has given him authority to judge everyone because he is the Son of Man.

JUDGMENT – PROOF OF JUDGESHIP

John 5:27

Let’s read Matthew 12:36-37.

36 And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. 37 The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”

  • Remember everything that you say shall be used against you in a court of law.

Matthew 16:27

27 For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father and will judge all people according to their deeds.

  • You will be judged on how you treated people, how you managed your money, how you raised your children, on your selfishness, on your honesty, and if you helped the poor, orphans, and widows. Get the picture!

Romans 2:16

16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.

  • As the Capital One commercials say, “What’s in your wallet”! Do you have any dark hidden sins (skeletons) in your closet?

2 Corinthians 5:10 

10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.

Luke 16:29

29 “But Abraham said, ‘Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read what they wrote.’

  • Here we see an example of what will happen by not being accountable. Let’s read the whole story beginning at verse 19.

19 Jesus said, “There was a certain rich man who was splendidly clothed in purple and fine linen and who lived each day in luxury. 20 At his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus who was covered with sores. 21 As Lazarus lay there longing for scraps from the rich man’s table, the dogs would come and lick his open sores. 22 “Finally, the poor man died and was carried by the angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and his soul went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Abraham in the far distance with Lazarus at his side. 24 “The rich man shouted, ‘Father Abraham, have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue. I am in anguish in these flames.” 25 “But Abraham said to him, ‘Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there.’ 27 “Then the rich man said, ‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. 28 For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment.”

1 Peter 1:17

17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time as “foreigners in the land.”

CONCLUSION

Here is  the theme of this teaching. God holds mankind accountable for reading and living by the Bible. It holds the answer to every problem of your life, and it has the answer to receiving riches. So know that you will be judged by it, meaning that it will be a witness against you on judgment day as you stand before Christ. Why is the Bible so important? Because we are not from Earth. We are from the Kingdom of Heaven. And that is where you will be judged by Christ to see if you will remain in Heaven, and be a citizen or if you will remain in hell for all eternity! We MUST let God transform our minds, and our thinking by reading from, and learning how to live through the Constitution of the Kingdom of God (Bible). God has been trying to bring Heaven to earth through Man since the time of Adam. So don’t wait until you get to heaven to experience Heaven – you can have it now! Simply by inviting Jesus to become your Lord and Savior. And the steps for this too (salvation) can be found in the word.

I pray that this teaching was very helpful, and has given you revelation that you did not have before. Amen! Feel free to leave a comment if this teaching helped you in any way, and how.
