OUR LORD WHO IS JUDGE
The Lord Jesus, having lived humbly in our midst, having walked our dusty roads and having been tempted in every way as we are, proved Himself to be perfect in His life, death and resurrection.
God the Father thus appointed Him as the Judge over the living and the dead.
Acts 10 verse 42 says it this way;
He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.
It will be before this appointed judge that we shall all appear as it says in 1 Corinthians 5 verse 10:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
It is a fearsome thing to come before the judge who is so exalted and commands the existence of all things. Revelation 19 verse 11 - 13 describes it like this;
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.
His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.
The One who walked humbly with us now appears in power and judges in righteousness.
Seek Him earnestly and trust in Him now so that you may know Him before He is revealed in great glory as judge of the living and the dead.
Bless His holy name.
