So now we’ll come to our proclamation. This one is taken from the last two verses of the epistle of Jude. Very familiar words to many because it’s often used in church services.
Jude 1:24-25: Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God, our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.
Just think, that He is able to present us faultless before the presence of His glory. What a wonderful God we serve!
Now, I have dealt in the previous sessions with the first four of the foundation doctrines. Let me see if I can recapitulate them. Repentance from dead works, faith toward God, the doctrine of baptism, and the laying on of hands.
Now, my message this morning was entitled ‘Transmitting God’s Power,’ and it dealt with that specific issue of laying on of hands. I’m sure for some of you it was quite a surprise to discover what an important part laying on of hands plays in the work and life of the church.
Now we have two remaining doctrines, very exciting ones: The resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.
DO YOU LIVE IN THIS WORLD OR IN THE NEXT?
But before I do those, I plan to do them in the next two sessions, I want to do this one on a theme that I’ve called ‘At The End of Time.’
Because you have to understand that when we come to these final two doctrines, they take us out of time and into eternity. That is one of their important functions, that we should not focus only on this life. I find so many Christians today only think in terms of what God will do for them in this life. But that’s just a tiny fraction of all that God has for us.
I want to read a Scripture from Revelation 10. I have to be very careful because with my background in philosophy, I can sometimes get taken over by certain thoughts.
This speaks in Revelation 10:5-6 of an angel: who lifted up his hand and swore by Him who lives forever and ever — that’s God — who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, the sea and the things that are in it, there should be time no longer.
Now, all your versions will say ‘there will be no more delay’ which may be the correct meaning. But what the Scripture actually says is: ‘there shall be no more time.’ And we are coming to a point, sooner or later in every one of our lives when there will be no more time.
Somebody has said the clock behind all clocks is the human heart, and, when the human heart ceases to beat all clocks cease to tick. And each of us individually passes out of time into a new realm, an eternal realm.
