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.

Today's Bible Verse Proverbs 17:5

" Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. "

This Week's Sermon ( 5-3-17 )

" And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. 
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. "   Daniel 7:24-25


I was watching the evening news and it was said that President Donald Trump is planning to make peace in the Middle East.

Former President Bill Clinton and other American presidents tried to bring peace to the Middle East.

My friend, a deep careful study of the Holy Bible shows the only one who will bring peace in the Middle East - that is, a temporary peace, will be a man from Syria who will come on the political scene as an everyone's friend sort of guy.

At the start of his impact on society, he will bring a temporary peace and have intelligent solutions to world problems like no other has ever had.

His ideas will actually work, while everyone else's has failed so far.

He will actually have the smarts to bring both the Jews and the Arabs to signing a 7 year peace treaty.

However, before this man can get started there will be a 10 nation empire. 

And yes, only 10 nations.

One of these 10 nations will be Syria, in which this man will come out of and rise to political fame.

Just be careful not to fall for his deception.

After he gains trust from many people he will change his tactics.

Today's Bible Verse Matthew 4:1-11

" Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 
And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 
Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 
And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 
Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 
And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 
Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. "
