John 12:31 ( posted 11-26-13 )

Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

 

 

Let's continue.

 

Now is the judgment of this world:

 

We will find that later in this chapter we are studying, Jesus clearly said;

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.John 12:47

 

At this moment Jesus inferred who will be the judge...referring to His Father;

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

Even though Jesus said;

Now in the verse of our study, keep in mind that a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day to the Lord;

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8

Nowcan be a very long time to us but to the Lord, almost immediate.

From the moment Jesus made this statement, in actuality the judgment of this world is at least ( though not limited to ) a two-fold process over a period of time consisting of more than 3007 years.

The signing of the 7 year peace treaty the “ antichrist “ brings the Jews and the Arabs to agreeing on in the future, commonly known among evangelicals as the 7 year tribulation period is referred to in the Holy Bible as the time of God's wrath. This is at least 2000 years from the time Jesus made this statement about this world's judgment being Now.

The next form of judgment is another 1000 years after this when God brings fire down from Heaven on the armies who once again gather around Jerusalem to destroy Jesus and the Jews...after satan is released from the abyss.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. Revelation 20:7-9

 

The final judgment will be an undetermined length of time after this.

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

 

Again, keep in mind this final judgment will be at least 3007 years from the moment Jesus made this statement in the verse of our study.

 

 

 

now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

 

The Greek word “ archon “ translated prince means ruler, chief, magistrate, a first in rank or power.

Jesus said clearly about satan;

Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. “   John 14:30

 

Paul called satan the god of this world;

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. “ 2 Corinthians 4:4

 

Once again, the now Jesus referred to in the verse of our study;

now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

will not happen to satan for at least 3007 years from the moment Jesus said this.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10

 

 

Satan as the “ god “ and “ prince “ of this present world still has the ability to deceive and to mislead.

However, because of the death of Jesus, for those of us who believe in Jesus, satan has no stronghold over us. His power has been broken.

Yes, He can deceive even those of us who believe in Jesus but he has no power over people who believe in Jesus.

 

I will continue with verse 32 in the next study.

This Week's Sermon ( 2-4-20 )

" And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. "   Revelation 13:13-17

I need to make you be aware of something.

This guy I talked about in my last sermon who rises to political power in the country he is born in will take over the country he grew up in.

He will take over 3 other countries within the 10 horns of Daniel. The other 6 countries will then submit to this guy then he will be ruler over all 10.

Just remember, the 10 horns of Daniel are 10 countries that will in the future, form an alliance and will become a world empire. 

This guy that takes over the 10 nation empire will have the smarts to solve world problems.

There will be a temporary peace in the world. The world will marvel at this guy.

He will eventually bring the Jews and the Arabs to sign a 7 year peace treaty.

This 7 year peace treaty is commonly known among evangelicals according to the Bible as the 7 year tribulation period.

When this guy brings the Jews and the Arabs to sign this 7 year peace treaty he will eventually enforce a law that requires people to receive a mark in their right hand or forehead in order to be able to buy gas for their car, buy food for their family and other necessities in life. Without his mark no one can buy anything nor can they sell anything. They will be required to have his identification mark on them.

My friend, I have have seen in the news that technology is advancing to the point people will be sometime able to make purchases with a microchip and will not be able to use cash or credit cards. It is called microchip purchasing. 

Some countries are already becoming a cashless society because they want to go to this microchip method of buying in stores.

A lot of countries are wanting to get rid of credit cards and cash and go to the microchip method of making purchases.

This guy who brings the Jews and the Arabs to signing the 7 year peace treaty will take over this technology and use it.

Keep your faith in Jesus and in Him alone.
