The Bible shows that God will never judge the world.
If you read all the judgment passages of the Bible, it is always about works because God has no favorites.
If God were to judge the world then He has to be impartial to ALL people and judge them all by the same standard of works.
Romans 2 “6 God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” 7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger… 11 For God does not show favoritism. ….. This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.”
It is because His wrath was because of all sins.
Romans 1 “18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,”
It was the Law that brought wrath.
Romans 4 “The law brings wrath”
The entire world was under the Law.
Romans 3 “19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God.”
The church today preaches that the unbelievers will be judged for works but that believers will be saved by faith alone.
But that is FALSE.
The entire bible tells us that even believers are judged for works
2 Corinthians 5 “9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 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.”
James 2 “My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism….8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.”
Revelation 2-3 “Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.”
Revelation 22 “12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. 14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”
Why do we Christians ignore all these passages?
Its because we dont understand what was the Biblical faith?
The faith was always about fulfilling the law.
The Bible is about the Law of Israel.
The Grace of the Bible was the power to fulfill the law.
Matthew 5 “17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.”
The righteousness required to be saved from the judgment was perfect holiness and obedience to the law, that nobody could attain in their flesh.
That is why Jesus Christ came in the LAST DAYS to bring salvation from the judgment of the law.
Hebrews 1 ” In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,”
Jesus died to forgive their past sins under the law so that they could receive GRACE by faith, receiving the Holy Spirit so that they could stop sinning and become righteous by obeying the requirements of the law. But if the believer did not use the Grace of God in repenting from sin then they would not be saved.
Romans 8 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit……12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.”
When Paul said that nobody is saved by works, he was referring to the unbelievers and deceivers who were trying to be circumcised for salvation.
Romans 4 “4 Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness…..9 Is this blessedness only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? We have been saying that Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness. 10 Under what circumstances was it credited? Was it after he was circumcised, or before? It was not after, but before! “
Ephesians 2 ” 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
But the believer received the Holy Spirit so that they could follow Jesus and now obey the law to be saved in the end.
Romans 13 “8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. 11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.”
Jesus was supposed to come and judge the world according to works in those last days.
The believers would have been the only ones who obeyed the law and saved IF they endured that horrible tribulation and stopped sinning by the power of the Spirit.
Matthew 24 “9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
But Jesus did not come back.
He did not judge the world.
It is because the Church failed in the great tribulation.
They failed to obey the law.
They failed to be perfect as Jesus commanded in Matthew 5, Luke 12, Luke 14, etc.
Therefore Jesus did not judge the world.
The Bible and the Law ended.
Hebrews 8:13 “13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.”
There is no sin anymore and no judgment.
Romans 4 “Where there is no law, there is no sin”
God did not judge the world and the law passed away in AD70.
This proves that God will never judge the world.
The Bible is a story showing that God is unconditional love.
This is a lesson for all people in the world.
God is gracious and does not judge anyone.
We are no better than each other.
We are all human beings who are loved unconditionally.
Jesus died on the cross to remove all sins.
But He will never judge anyone.
Christians should not think that we are better than unbelievers because we believe in Jesus and are going to heaven while they are going to hell.
If God were to judge the world, then He will judge it based on works and ALL people will go to hell.
God is unconditional love and cannot judge us because we will never be perfect like Him.
So then submit to the unconditional love of God in Jesus and accept that He made you and all people righteous without works
and there is no law today.
There is no judgment.
God does not judge anyone. The Bible proves it clearly.
This is why Jesus said do not judge others in Matthew 7
because we are all the same, all of us are God’s children
and He will never judge anyone.
