1 On your computer, use your arrow keys to advance or reverse the pages. You can close the presentation at any time with your Esc key. For many years, our Bible teaching visuals have been shown in churches. For ten years, the visuals went into thousands of homes on “Projection For Survival” TV programs. I’ve now updated many of those visuals into this “Power Point Show” to continue their ministry as tools for other Bible students and teachers world wide. You are welcome to use and share this material FREE. These first 4 pages you are now seeing (in these smaller font sizes) are not part of the show. They are information for the user… from Leon Bates Visit For 100’s of free powerpoints
2 Our originally produced versions were scanned on every edit with our up-to-date Norton Antivirus, so they are virus free. If you get a CD copy from someone else, I suggest you let your antivirus program scan it to be sure it is still virus free. This material can be studied by anyone on their computer. If your computer has an S-Video TV Output, you can connect it a TV S-Video Input for viewing by family, small groups and classes. A Video Projector can give excellent quality and large images for bigger groups. Many churches now have Video Projectors. This show is not copyrighted. Make as many CD copies as you wish to share with other people…FREE. It’s about 13 MB in size. Just click on the file on your desktop, then SEND TO (the drive of your CD burner) If you downloaded it from our web page, I suggest you SAVE it to your Computer Desktop to SHOW and make CD’s. If you got this show on a CD, you can save it to your Computer Desktop for easy use. RIGHT click on the “Projection For Survival File,” COPY. Minimize that white window, move your pointer to a blank space on your Desktop Screen, PASTE. Then, RIGHT click on the file on your Desktop and click SHOW.
3 The following list shows four sub-divisions to help you understand the contents. Your teaching could easily last more than these four divisions if you add your own comments, Scriptures, questions and discussion. Page #’s: 7 to 49 “Eternity Past to the Cross” 50 to 104 “Cross to the Second Coming” 105 to 143 “Second Coming to Eternity Future” 144 to 169 “How to be sure of Salvation and Heaven” Page numbers are in the lower right corner of the screen. Each time, you could do a quick review of the last few pages of the show, then resume your teaching at the page # where you left off. During the Show, press and hold your right arrow or down arrow key to move quickly to a page #. Or… type in a page #, then, Enter to go directly to any page. Your HOME and END keys go back and forth from Page 1 to the last page. You can present this show in an hour for an overview or for Evangelism. If your class takes time to look up the Scriptures and you add your own teaching (which I recommend) there’s too much content for one lesson. I suggest you teach it in shorter sessions and add your own teaching. Giving it as a series of classes can help build your class larger, as people see part of it and come back with family and friends to see more.
4 Our prayer and goal for this Power Point Show is to help people understand and appropriate the wonderful love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Page # 5 is to help you FOCUS a video projector, if you are using one. Bible Believers’ Evangelistic Association, Inc. 189 Old Perrin Rd. Sherman, TX To start with, you may want to quickly preview this entire presentation, just to see the contents. The last few pages AFTER the END OF SHOW contain more information about the materials used in this show. Page # 7 starts the “Projection For Survival” Power Point Show. Page # 6 is blank, so you can leave it set here to begin your showing of these visuals to others for Bible classes, etc.

8 Eternity Past to the Cross
9 One of these days, newspapers will scream:
10 That event will be the “Rapture” and we’ll see more about it during this presentation… The “Rapture Picture” from Bible Believers ’ Evangelistic Assn., Sherman, TX
11 This map shows God’s Plan of the Ages From Eternity PAST To Eternity FUTURE From Eternity Past to Christ is recorded in the Old Testament. From Christ to Eternity Future is in the New Testament.
12 There are 7 dispensations or ages in the outworking of God’s overall eternal purpose. Innocence,Conscience, Human Government, Promise, Law,Graceand Kingdom.
13 In each age, man is given a specific test or RESPONSIBILITY.
14 In each age, the majority of the people disobey God and each age ends in FAILURE.
15 In each age, the dispensational FAILURE results in… divine JUDGMENT.
16 The overall revelation of the seven tests show that man is utterly sinful AND LOST. Salvation in every dispensation is by GRACE (the un-deserved, un-earned GIFT of God) and is always received BY FAITH alone.
17 In the first age, man was created and innocent. Adam and Eve had a wonderful life in the garden of Eden and they had fellowship with God. Will they trust and obey God in this paradise? Will they trust His wisdom and love for them?
18 God gave them a very simple test… Do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In the day you eat of it, you will die. Satan lied… You will not die. They ate. As a result, sin and death came on the entire human race. Man is now separated FROM God. The rest of the Bible is about God’s redemption of man and restoration to fellowship with God.
19 In age #2, Conscience, the test shows that Conscience alone is NOT a sufficient guide to bring man to a right relationship with God, apart from God’s salvation by grace. A common thought of sinful (even educated) man today is, “Just do what you THINK is right and that will surely be good enough.”
20 In Age 2, they were to do all known good, abstain from sin and approach God with animal blood sacrifices (which were a picture of Christ’s sacrifice to come.) The wickedness of man became great and the thoughts of his heart were only evil continually. It was so bad, it grieved God’s heart that He had made man on the earth.
21 The divine JUDGMENT of age #2 was the GLOBAL FLOOD. Noah “found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” All people, except Noah, his wife, their 3 sons and their wives, (8 people) were destroyed because of their violence, wickedness, sin and disobedience of God’s commands to them in Age # 2. (Gen. 6:7-13; Gen. 7:11-24)
22 Noah worked 120 years building the Ark, by faith. It had never rained. (Gen. 2:6, Heb. 11:7) The Woodpecker might have to go!
23 Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark… 1. Don’t miss the boat. 2. Remember that we’re all in the same boat. 3. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the boat. 4. Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really BIG.
24 5. Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. 6. Build your future on high ground. 7. For safety’s sake, travel in pairs. 8. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. 9. When you’re stressed, float a while. 10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
25 Noah was saved from judgment because he believed God and was IN the Ark. We are saved from judgment by believing God’s Word and by being “IN Christ” (Romans 8:1). Until the water got up to their nostrils. They were not in the Ark... so they ALL DIED. Can you imagine how much the ungodly people made fun of “crazy old Noah?” 11. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting. (Author Unknown)
26 We, who are “IN Christ,” will be “translated” (caught up… Raptured) BEFORE the coming 7 year Tribulation Judgment. (I Thes. 4:17, 5:9, Rev. 3:10) In Age #2, Enoch was “translated” – (taken out) BEFORE the flood judgment.
27 In Age #3, the test shows that mankind CAN NOT bring themselves to a right relationship with God… by HUMAN GOVERNMENT. Human Governments have their place in our society. However, people can not earn a right relationship with God by Human Government any more than they can lift themselves up by their own shoestrings.
28 After the flood and landing of the Ark, God told them to “scatter and multiply upon the earth.” LEST we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” Note, they knew God’s command and chose to disobey it. Again, the majority disobeyed God. Instead of scattering, they said, “Let us build a city and a tower and make us a name…
29 God simply stopped their puny efforts… by confusing their languages, which is the origin of our many languages in the world today. Can you imagine a worker trying to say, “Hand me a brick” and it came out something like... “abba do baba me thunk awoddda”? How many think God may have a sense of HUMOR?
30 In Age #4, the test is to show that even when given a direct promise from God, most people will not meet His terms for the promise and obey. Among His promises, God told Abraham to go to a land He would show him (Israel), DWELL there (stay there) and “I will make you a great nation, bless you and make your name great.” (Gen. 12:1-3) ABRAHAM
31 Abraham left Ur of Chaldees through Haran to the promised land. When a little famine (test) came to them in the promised land, they went down into Egypt. After Israel wandered in the wilderness 40 yrs., they finally got back into their promised land.
32 The Failure was Abraham (and Israel) not “Dwelling” (staying) in the promised land as God said to do. As a result of that disobedience, Israel ended up in Egyptian Bondage, as slaves building the pyramids.
33 God heard the cry of the children of Israel in bondage to the Egyptians. So, He raised up Moses to deliver them. Just three days after the miraculous Red Sea crossing, the children of Israel were complaining, not trusting God. They still had not learned the critical lesson, that they were utterly sinful and that God is absolutely Holy.
34 The 10 Commandments are God’s written standards of holiness. From them, ALL people should know they are sinners and God is absolutely HOLY. ISRAEL So, God gave them the LAW. It was not a means of salvation. It was to teach them they were sinners and that God is Holy.
35 They promised…All that the Lord has spoken, we will do. (Exodus 19:8) But, they broke the law and went into idolatry. (II Kings 17: 7-20)
36 Pilate said, “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?” And the people cried out and said, “...Let Him be Crucified.” (Matt. 27:22, 23) When Christ was born near the end of Age #5 (Law) they failed to recognize Him as the Savior.
37 “He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.” (John 1:11) At the cross they said… A.D. 33 -“His blood be on us, and on our children” (Matt. 27:25) A.D The Romans killed 50,000 Jews. A.D Nero killed 40,000 Jews A.D. 70 -Titus killed 1,000,000 Jews WW II -Hitler killed 6,000,000 Jews History verifies the terrible persecution the Jewish people have suffered since AD 33.
38 The Judgment of Age 5 (Law) was the world wide dispersion of Israel. They nearly became extinct as a nation. But God loves Israel. They ARE His chosen people and He promised to bring them back to their land. In May, 1948, Israel became a new nation. Watch the news about Israel…
39 Next is their “cleansing from their unbelief” which is one purpose of the coming 7 year Tribulation Judgment. As we see increasing world event changes, setting up the conditions for the Tribulation Judgment and Antichrist, it should cause us to wonder… how soon is the Rapture?
40 Christ was born during Age # 5 (Law). With His virgin birth, He did not inherit Adam’s sin nature, as we did. So, Christ was sinless by birth.
41 With His perfect life, Christ fulfilled the Moral part of the Law, the “10 Commandments.” With His sacrificial death, He fulfilled the Ceremonial or Sacrificial part of the Law. Thus, with His life and Death, He fulfilled ALL the Law. When He died, He said, “It is finished” (paid in full). (John 19:30)
42 During Age #5, Law, the Ceremonial, or Sacrificial part of the Law was performed in the Tabernacle in the wilderness and later incorporated into the Temple in Jerusalem.
43 The Tabernacle was a portable structure the children of Israel moved, as God led them through their years of wandering after their Exodus from Egypt.
44 This shows the structure and the furniture inside and outside of the Tabernacle. Regular sacrifices were made by the priest, in this outer court at the Brazen Altar, as “atonement” (temporary covering) for the sins of the people.
45 The Tabernacle walls were 10 cubits high = 15 feet high (Exodus 26:15,16). The “Most Holy Place” was Watch what happened to that VEIL. separated by a 15 foot high VEIL from the Holy Place.
46 once a year, on the “Great Day of Atonement.” The VEIL separated man from God, except The priest would enter through the VEIL into the “Most Holy Place” with incense and blood, for one more year of “Atonement” for his sins and the sins of the people.
47 When Christ died and said, “It is finished,” Man didn’t do it. God ripped it! Access to God was no longer barred. The work of Atonement was done, “Paid In Full.” The VEIL of the Temple was TORN in TWO, from the TOP to the BOTTOM. (Matt. 27:50, 51)
48 God was satisfied with Christ’s death as the payment for our sins, and proved it to the world… by raising Him from the dead. As promised, the Holy Spirit began indwelling believers to equip them for Christian living, which started the Church age.
49 End of “Creation to the Cross” section.
50 The Cross to the Second Coming
51 We are now living in Age # 6, Grace or Church age. The Responsibility of this age is for people to receive Christ as Savior - by faith alone. After we are saved, we should trust the Holy Spirit to lead us, so Christ is also Lord of our lives. Believers in this age ARE “Ambassadors for Christ” to help take the Gospel to all nations. (Matt. 28:16-20, II Cor. 5:18-20)
52 The judgment at the end of this age will be the great 7 year Tribulation Judgment. The majority of people, even in this “Church Age,” are NOT trusting Christ for their salvation. They are trusting their own human efforts to try to pay for their sins and earn their salvation.
53 This Grace or “Church Age” and the 7 year Tribulation Judgment will end with the Return of Jesus Christ to the Earth in power and great glory. Trib.
54 Christ will first return IN THE CLOUDS to resurrect the dead in Christ, to change the living in Christ and Rapture or receive them UP to Himself. Christ will return down TO Earth AFTER the Tribulation Judgment. (Matt. 24: 29, 30)
55 The Rapture will be SUDDEN and a SEPARATION of the saved from the unsaved.
56 The dead in Christ will rise first. (I Thes. 4:16)
57 Notice: One member of the family is not being taken up. WHY? Because that family member was not saved. Only the dead IN CHRIST will be taken. Not just being baptized, or being a church member, but… TRUSTING in Christ alone.
58 When the Rapture does occur, there may be many airline crashes, if both the pilot and co- pilot are saved and suddenly MISSING… This “Rapture Picture,” with the plane crash into the skyscraper was painted in 1974… 27 years before the fall of the NYC Twin Towers.
59 If you’re seeing this and… you’re not saved, you should get right with God immediately! Remember, the Rapture will be SUDDEN and a SEPARATION of saved people from un- saved people. Many families will be split up. Saved members taken, unsaved ones left to go into the horrible Tribulation Judgment. And it won’t be any safer on the highways…
60 The Rapture will occur without warning… in the “twinkling of an eye” (I Cor. 15: 52). So it’s logical the highways will be full of driverless crashes.
61 People often ask, “Why aren’t there people coming out of the buildings?” Perhaps it is Sunday, or not during their work hours, or… perhaps some of them are between the floor and the ceiling, on their way out. What about you, would you have come out?
62 No one knows WHEN the Rapture will come! There are no “signs” to happen before the Rapture. The saved people could meet Christ in the air at any time. All “signs of the times” in the Bible are relative to the 7 year Tribulation Judgment, which will come AFTER the Rapture. The Rapture and Tribulation Judgment could be very near!
63 Notice the re- gathering of Israel since May, The Tribulation Judgment MAY be very soon. Those who reject Christ to their death… or the Rapture… will not have another opportunity. It would be foolish for anyone living today to not trust 100% in Christ… NOW!
64 Those who hear, understand and reject Christ now… will have “strong delusion” come on them during the Tribulation. They will believe the Antichrist, worship him and be doomed. (II Thes. 2:10-12, Rev ) There will be people saved during the 7 year Tribulation who did not hear and understand the Gospel in this age. For example, 144,000 Jews (12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel) will be saved and sealed (protected). (Rev. 7:1-8)
65 There will also be a great number from all nations, who hear, trust Christ and are saved during the Tribulation. (Rev. 7:9-17) But MANY (if not most) will be BEHEADED for refusing to take the mark of the Antichrist and worshipping him during the Tribulation (Rev. 20:4).
66 So, you can see why it would be VERY foolish to reject Christ NOW and… miss the Rapture. As we see more of the details of the coming Tribulation Judgment, it should do three things: 1. If you’re saved, give you JOY to know you are ready to meet the Lord and be with Him, 2. Give you more concern about lost people. 3. If you’re unsaved, cause you to realize the DANGER you are in… without Christ.
67 When Christ was on earth, He was asked WHEN these events would come. He answered, “No one knows except the Father.” (Matt. 24:36) He did describe world conditions to precede His return… at the end of the Tribulation. And, we do know much about WHAT will happen during the Tribulation. Watch world events. We can see the “stage being set” for the Tribulation Judgment.
68 First, we’ll see how “the stage is being set” for the Tribulation Judgment… Later, we’ll see WHAT will happen during the 7 year Tribulation Judgment… 1. World Food Famine 2. Immorality and Lawlessness 3. One World Economic System Let’s look at THREE stages being set:
69 1. Major FOOD FAMINES are coming! Jesus described last day conditions, including FAMINES (Matt. 24:1-7). During the coming 7 year Tribulation, over ONE FOURTH of the world’s people will die, partly from hunger (famine). (Rev. 6:8) Is the stage set for major food famine? “In 1974, the U.S. committed it’s last major reserve of 50,000,000 acres for food production.” (U.S. News & World Report, Jan. 28, 1974, page 50)
70 9/23/04 “Despite bumper harvest, world’s cupboard grows bare.” World’s grain harvests have for 4 years fallen short of consumption. As population continues to mushroom, some experts suggest, we are teetering on the brink of global food crisis. (9/23/04 Shortfalls have pulled down the world grain reserves to only 59 days of consumption, the lowest levels in 30 years.
71 People in many parts of the world are already suffering from FAMINE…
72 The PURPOSE of this information is: NOTBUT PANICPREPARATION SHOCKSURVIVAL DEATHLIFE - ETERNAL FEAR FAITH TERROR TRUST RELIGIONCHRIST
73 2. During the Tribulation, there will be increased Immorality and Lawlessness. In the last days, perilous times shall come… evil men and seducers shall get worse and worse… (II Tim.3:1-13) Questions: Has MORALITY (for example on TV) gotten better or worse in the last 50 years? Do our schools still honor God and His Word as they did 50 years ago? Even 20 years ago? Do our Governments and Courts still honor God and His Word as they did 50 years ago?
74 Has LAWLESSNESS increased or decreased during the last 50 years? Many crimes, especially drug related, are UP. Drug Arrests by age, especially adults, UP. (U.S. Department of Justice )
75 The hindering work of the Holy Spirit (against lawlessness) operating through the church will be gone after the Rapture. (II Thes. 2:7) With the church gone, ungodly rebellion will be uninhibited in the Tribulation. People not killed by the Tribulation plagues will refuse to change their minds towards God. They will continue to worship devils and idols. They will continue in their sorceries (magic arts), sexual immorality and thefts. (Rev. 9:20, 21; Rev. 16:8-11)
76 And he (antichrist) will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 3. A computer linked One World Economic System will be needed during the Tribulation, so the antichrist can control World Trade. Without the antichrist mark, people won’t be able to buy or sell anything… food, gas, electricity… NOTHING! And that no man might buy or sell, unless he that has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Rev. 13:16,17)
77 With a One World Economic, Monetary and Banking System, the antichrist will demand the worship of the world, or… they can’t buy or sell. Unsaved people living on the earth during the Tribulation WILL take the mark of the antichrist and worship him. (Rev. 13:8) Deceived by antichrist’s One World Economic System and required worship, the eternal doom of those people is promised by God’s Word. It will be eternal separation from God… in the lake of fire. (Rev. 14:9-11)
78 The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an international organization of 184 member countries. Could the IMF be a One World Monetary Organization setting the stage for the One World Economy required by the antichrist during the 7 year Tribulation? It was established… “to promote international monetary cooperation.”
79 The popularity of Eurodollars has grown rapidly… Could this “Eurocurrency” be a One World Currency for the World Monetary System required during the Tribulation? 1972 = $11 billion 1981 = $178 billion 1991 = $429 billion
80 High speed computers that will link the One World Economical System are already in place to scan UPC codes instantly… on almost everything. What’s next? Perhaps a UPC code ? or Electronic Chip ? to be implanted on humans for ID for the One World Economic System needed by antichrist in the Tribulation?
81 Conclusion: (1.) Impending Food Famines, are all in HARMONY with the predicted world conditions for the coming 7 year Tribulation Judgment. (3.) The coming One World Economic System (2.) Worsening Immorality and Lawlessness and Now… let’s see WHAT is coming according to the Bible, God’s Word…
82 This shows the 7 year Tribulation Judgment that will occur between the Rapture and Return of Christ. God promised to keep His true believers “OUT OF” (Gr. Ek) “the hour” the very time… not just the judgments, the “wrath” to come. (Rev. 3:10, I Thes. 5:9)
83 Some world leader will come on the scene and establish a peace treaty between Israel and her enemies. This will begin the 7 years. He (the antichrist) will break that treaty in the middle of the 7 years. In the last half (42 months) he’ll move into the temple of God, claim to be God & demand the worship of the world. (Dan. 9:27, II Thes. 2:3,4; Rev. 13:4-8)
84 The 7 year Tribulation will be HORRIBLE. Jesus WARNED it would be greater than any past or future world judgment. (Matt.24:21,22) There will be 3 sets of 7 judgments each during the 7 year Tribulation Judgment.
85 Now, let’s see more details about each set of the Tribulation Judgments…
86 When we see this beautiful planet Earth hanging out in the blackness of space, it is hard to believe what is going to happen to the people living here. According to the Bible, tremendous changes are coming during the Tribulation Judgment.
87 The Tribulation will be so bad, people will cry out for the mountains and rocks to fall on them to hide them from the wrath of the Lamb. “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
88 Every island will disappear and the cities will fall. Civilization as we now know it will be destroyed in the Tribulation. We can’t know WHEN, but we know it WILL happen, according to the Bible, God’s Word. For example, the beautiful mountains of this world will disappear.
89 The 7 Seal Judgments will plunge the world into the terrible time Christ warned was coming. So many will die, they’ll probably have to be buried in mass graves. Tribulation believers will be killed. John wrote, “I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus” (Rev. 20:4)
90 The 7 SEAL Judgments: Peace taken, wars, great weapons (Rev. 6:4) Famine, day’s food for day’s wages (6:5,6) 1/4 world’s population die, war, hunger (6:8) Christians will be slain for their faith (6:9-11) Earthquakes, sun dark, stars fall (6:12,13) Mountains and Islands will be moved (6:14) Panic & Terror will be universal (6:15-17)
91 The 7 Trumpet Judgments are more severe… Hail and fire, mingled with blood will fall. Some will be afraid and glorify God. Others will be ANGRY with God.
92 The 7 TRUMPET Judgments: Hail & fire falls mingled with blood (Rev. 8:7) 1/3 in sea destroyed; fish, ships. (8:8,9) Many die from poisoned waters (8:10,11) Sun smitten affecting light and temp. (8:12) Demonic creatures torture unsaved (9:1-11) Another 1/3 world population dies (9:13-18) More great earthquakes and hail (11:13,19)
93 The 7 Bowl Judgments are even MORE severe! Grievous SORES on those who worship the antichrist. Sea, Blood. ALL DIE All fresh water will become BLOOD
94 Great fire and heat, sun or nuclear weapons or both? Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet… (Zech 14:12)
95 Valley of Megiddo, north of Jerusalem, where the great battle of Armageddon will occur.
96 The 7 BOWL Judgments: Grievous sores plague unsaved (Rev. 16:2) Sea becomes blood, all in sea dies (16:3) All fresh water turned to blood (16:4-6) Men scorched with fire and heat (16:8, 9) Preparation for “Battle of Armageddon” (16:12-16) Men gnaw out tongues, pain (16:10.11) Those who rejected the blood of Christ for their salvation will have only blood to drink!
97 Huge hailstones, about 100 pounds each, will fall on the people on earth. The people will blaspheme God because the plague of the hail is so great and terrible. (16:21) Every island and every mountain will disappear (16:20) Cities throughout the nations will collapse and fall (16:19) Greatest earthquake since people have been on the earth (Rev. 16:18) Bowl Judgments continued…
98 Can you imagine 100 pound hail falling on earth? No wonder Jesus said these would be the worst judgments ever on the people of this earth… past or future!
99 Events Following The Judgments… The Return of Jesus Christ to this earth in His glory (Rev. 19:11-16) Conclusion of Battle of Armageddon (19:17-19) CHRIST WILL STOP IT! Destruction of the antichrist (19:20) Destruction of the people who followed the antichrist (19:21)
100 Jerusalem Where Jesus prayed and ascended back into Heaven and where He will return to this earth. (Zech. 14:4) from the Mount of Olives
101 Christ will return to earth at the Mount of Olives and enter Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate (Golden Gate) to rule the world… for the 1,000 year Millennium.
102 In the 1967 “Six Day War” Israeli troops almost crashed through this gate, but entered through another gate instead. In A.D. 33, Jesus entered Jerusalem through this gate. In A.D.1530, it was sealed by the Turks. According to Ezek. 44:I-3, it is to stay sealed until the Messiah (Jesus Christ) returns and re-enters Jerusalem through this gate.
103 When Christ returns in the brightness of His coming, the sun will be dark in comparison. His return will be the most dramatic event ever on Earth.
104 End of “Cross to Second Coming” section.
105 Second Coming to the Eternity Future
106 When Christ returns to Earth in His glory, after the Tribulation, He will establish the 1,000 year Millennium or Kingdom on Earth. Every eye (including Israel) will see Jesus Christ and know He is… the great I AM, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Rev. 1:7,8)
107 To set the stage for this final age and to show that man can not and will not be saved apart from God’s GRACE, Christ will take Satan out of operation. Christ will cast Satan into a “bottomless pit” for the 1000 years, so Satan can not influence the minds of men.
108 The RESPONSIBILITY of this age for the earth people is to obey and worship Christ. Many will worship Him, but some will fake that worship. The FAILURE is revealed when Satan is released at the end of the age, the fakers will REBEL and flock back to Satan to follow him.
109 The JUDGMENT of this age is when Christ will cast Satan and ALL of Satan’s rebels into the Lake of Fire… FOREVER.
110 At the end of this Age # 7 will be the “Great White Throne Judgment”… And God’s BOOKS will be opened… Let’s see: (1.) WHO will be judged, (2.) WHAT the books are and (3.) RESULT of this FINAL JUDGMENT
111 WHO will be judged? First, let’s clarify the RESURRECTIONS: There are basically TWO resurrections, the SAVED and the the UNSAVED. The resurrection of the SAVED is in three parts. 1. Some saints rose with Christ. 2. Dead & Living “in Christ” at the Rapture. 3. Tribulation believers at Second Coming.
112 Resurrection of Saved Resurrection of Unsaved Part 3 of the Resurrection of the Saved, the “Resurrection of Tribulation Believers,” is the END of the Resurrection of the Saved. Rev. 20:5 says “But the rest of the dead live not again until the thousand years is finished.”
113 WHO will be judged at the White Throne Judgment? After the 1,000 years, ALL UNSAVED OF all ages will be resurrected to stand before God at the White Throne Judgment. Believers will NOT be judged here. Christ took all of their judgment upon Himself… when He died on the cross.
114 Now let’s see WHAT the 5 sets of books are that will be used to judge the UNSAVED at the Great White Throne Judgment. BOOK #1. “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) God’s Word will be a witness against the unsaved at the White Throne. (Content only, may not be in this sequence.)
115 You may say, “I don’t believe the Bible.” You will one day at the White Throne Judgment and… your rejection has been recorded. The Witness of God’s Word Every Scripture you have ever read in the Bible or a Gospel Tract, or heard on radio or TV… and rejected is recorded. It will be a witness against you at the Great White Throne Judgment.
116 BOOK # 2. Secret Thoughts of the unsaved Rom. 2:15,16 says… God shall judge their thoughts and secrets. Every time lost men looked on a woman with lust, or lost teenagers had bad thoughts about parents or teachers, God recorded it. Every time unsaved people even thought, “I don’t believe all this junk about Heaven, Hell and Christ,” God recorded their thoughts.
117 BOOK # 3. WORDS Jesus said, “…I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” (Matt.12:36) Every “idle word” means every evil word, every dirty joke, every curse word. God heard them all and recorded them. The very WORDS of the unsaved will testify against them at the Great White Throne Judgment.
118 Exodus 20:7 says, “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.” Many people think it’s smart or funny to take the Holy name of Jesus Christ in vain, cursing and swearing. God is keeping a record and their own WORDS will prove them GUILTY at the White Throne Judgment and… deserving of separation from a Holy God forever in the Lake of Fire.
119 BOOK # 4. The BOOK of WORKS 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. (Rev. 20:12) If people die in their sins, having rejected Christ as Savior, their WORKS will testify against them at the White Throne. Notice… “Judged… by their WORKS.”
120 Every rejection of the Gospel will be a memory forever.
121 Every sin unsaved people thought they got by with... will be revealed at the White Throne.
122 We’ve seen: (1.) WHO will be judged at the Great White Throne Judgment… the UNSAVED of all ages, (3.) Now, lets see the FIFTH book and… the END RESULT of this Great White Throne Judgment. (2.) WHAT four of the five books are, God’s Word Rejected, the sinful THOUGHTS, the ungodly WORDS and WORKS of the unsaved.
123 BOOK # 5. The BOOK of LIFE And whosoever was not (will not be) found written in the book of life was (will be) cast into the lake of fire. (Rev. 20:15) This will reveal that the names of the unsaved are NOT written in the Book Of Life. Their names will simply NOT BE THERE! And death and hell were (will be) cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Rev. 20:14)
124 These books just confirm their guilt. Christ died to pay for all the sins of everyone in the world. “…He (Christ) is the propitiation (satisfactory payment) for our sins: and not for our’s only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” (I John 2:2) People will be in Hell because they rejected Christ’s death, His shed blood, which was the only acceptable payment for their sins. Let’s clarify an important truth about this final Great White Throne Judgment. People won’t be in Hell… due to what these books reveal.
125 The END RESULT of the Great White Throne Judgment… ALL UNSAVED people will be separated from God forever in the Lake of Fire. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matt. 25:41) But ALL people who die in their sins, having rejected Christ, will spend eternity in Hell… with Satan.
126 After the White Throne Judgment, Earth, as we now know it, will be destroyed and pass away. There will be a new heaven and new earth as the eternal dwelling place of saved people… better than anything we can even imagine.
127 The story is told about a stone cutter, a worker in marble, who was walking through a cemetery. On a tombstone he saw these words… All you people passing by; As you are now, so once was I. As I am now, so you must be; prepare for death and follow me. The stone cutter took hammer and chisel and added these words… To follow you, I will not consent, until I know which way you went.
128 This is a question many people do not want to talk about. The best way to be rid of the fear of death… is to be prepared. We are not prepared to live and enjoy life… until we are saved and no longer fear death. For the saved, it’s just a “Graduation.”
129 A common question is: When people die, will they really live again in eternity? YES! I Cor. 15:44 says… “There is a NATURAL body and there is a SPIRITUAL body.” The truth of Resurrection is essential to the Christian faith and everlasting life with God. Paul wrote: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures: (I Cor. 15:3,4)
130 And because Christ died and lives today, saved people are assured they will live also. “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (make alive) your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Romans 8:11) Notice, SHALL is a definite promise of God. Now, the question… “Is Heaven a REAL PLACE or just a state of mind?”
131 Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a PLACE for you. And if I go and prepare a PLACE for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:2,3) Some people think Heaven or Hell is only here on Earth - in your present life. NOT. So, Jesus said the saved will dwell with Him in a real, literal PLACE… a PLACE which He has personally prepared for the saved.
132 John told us more about this prepared place… “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Rev. 21:1,2) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. (Rev. 21:3)
133 So, Heaven is a real, literal PLACE, the eternal dwelling PLACE of all saved people with God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Rev. 21.4) And it will be a WONDERFUL PLACE… with the Lord and our saved loved ones. DEATH GONE!
134 Can you imagine the JOY of arriving in Heaven, being greeted by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and our saved loved ones? He has promised us “an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in Heaven for you.” (I Pet. 1:4)
135 Eternity WITH CHRIST will be beautiful beyond human description, absolutely delightful. Heaven will ring with the music of the saved, “Thank you Lord for saving my soul.” The people in Heaven will have accepted God’s love and payment for their sins. In Heaven, God’s GRACE will be fully revealed. However, to more fully appreciate this wonderful promise, we need to consider what it will be like for people in Eternity WITHOUT Christ.
136 Eternity WITHOUT CHRIST… When unsaved people leave this life on Earth, they will face judgment, then… be cast into the Lake of Fire. Can you imagine the HORROR of plunging into Hell with ungodly, lost sinners and with the enemy of God, Satan?
137 Hell is a real literal PLACE, not just a state of mind. It is a fire that shall not be quenched. (Mark 9:45) Hell will be a PLACE of torment and suffering forever. No relief from suffering in the flame and smoke. No rest day or night. (Rev. 14:10,11) No more opportunity for salvation forever (Luke 16:23-26)
138 Eternity WITHOUT CHRIST… Will be miserable and absolutely horrible! Hell will echo with the cries of the lost… “Have mercy – water” but it will be too late. The Bible, God’s Word, guarantees eternal judgment for the lost. While on Earth, Jesus warned lost people, “How can ye escape the damnation of HELL?” (Matt. 23:33)
139 How to AVOID HELL? That’s the GOOD NEWS. God does not want us in Hell. He proved that by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to the cross. Jesus does not want us in Hell. People mocked Him, spit on Him, slapped Him, beat Him, whipped Him and crucified Him. Why did He ALLOW all that?
140 The Holy Spirit does not want us in Hell. He proved that by raising Christ from the dead. (Rom. 8:11) The nails did not hold Christ on the cross. His LOVE for you and me held Him there. There is rejoicing in the presence of Angels when people change their minds toward God and trust Christ for salvation. (Luke 15:10) Even people in Hell don’t want others in Hell. They beg for someone to go warn their lost family about Hell. (Luke 16:27-31)
141 Only SATAN wants people in Hell. He wants to rob God of the glory of saving people. Satan wants to rob people of the JOY of their salvation and their home in Heaven with God. Wouldn’t you rather have salvation & Heaven? The Bible, God’s Word says Heaven will be better than anything we have ever seen, ever heard or ever imagined. (I Cor. 2:14)
142 Can you imagine Heaven’s beauty being even more beautiful than God’s creations on earth? And to be there with the Lord Himself and our saved loved ones… how wonderful that will be! All people without Christ are just one heartbeat from Hell, so please make SURE of your salvation.

144 How to be sure of Salvation and Heaven
145 Exactly what are YOU trusting for your salvation (pay for your sins, get you to heaven)? A. HUMAN EFFORTS as: YESNO “Living a good life” “Good Works, good deeds” “Church Membership” B. OTHER (Be Specific) _________________ What % of your trust for your salvation is in: A. HUMAN EFFORTS ____ B. OTHER ____ Examples: 50/50, 70/30, 100/0, etc.
146 MOST people answer what they are trusting for their salvation like these answers… A. HUMAN EFFORTS as: YES NO “Living a good life” “Good Works, good deeds” “Church Membership” B. OTHER (Be Specific) ________________ What % of your trust for your salvation is in: A. HUMAN EFFORTS ____ B. OTHER ____ Examples: 50/50, 70/30, 100/0, etc. X X X Also Christ 7030
147 A. HUMAN EFFORTS as: YES NO “Living a good life” “Good Works, good deeds” “Church Membership” B. OTHER (Be Specific) ___________________ X X X These common answers indicate they are trusting their human efforts for their salvation.. Also Christ They often answer… “Also Christ” which is a combination of good works AND Christ.
148 Any combination % also CONFIRMS they have not yet understood the Gospel and God’s plan of salvation by grace alone. What % of YOUR trust for salvation is in: A. HUMAN EFFORTS ____ B. OTHER ____ Examples: 50/50, 70/30, 100/0, etc Any combination % here CONFIRMS they understood the question and it CONFIRMS they are trusting a combination of human efforts AND Christ.
149 Now, the BIG question… which deserves a VERY CLEAR ANSWER... “What Must I Do To Be Saved?” That question was asked and clearly answered in the Bible, God’s Word… “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved…” (Acts 16:30,31) Notice, it does not say “about Christ” but ON Christ. We must TRUST, DEPEND on Christ alone, His death, His shed blood as THE total payment for our sins and salvation.
150 (Rom. 5:8)… God commendeth His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. He shed His blood… to pay for OUR sins. We who trust Christ 100% are GUARANTEED salvation the shed blood of Christ, who was resurrected and is living today. False religions hate the blood of Christ, but Satan was defeated by the blood of Christ.
151 Many people think all roads lead to Heaven. But what does the Bible, God’s Word, say? Enter ye in at the strait (narrow) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (narrow) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matt.7:13,14)
152 Matt. 7:22, 23 tell us. Jesus said, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” The Broad Road is… “Good Works for Salvation.” WHAT is the “Broad Road” the majority of people are on… that God said “leads to destruction?”
153 He is the ONLY way to Heaven. How Narrow is that? How NARROW is the Biblical way to Heaven? VERY! Jesus Himself said, “…I am THE way, THE truth and THE life: no man cometh unto the Father BUT BY ME. (John 14:6) The Apostle Peter wrote concerning Christ… “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts. 4:12)
154 Religion is man’s human efforts to work himself UP to a right relationship to God. Man’s puny human efforts can never bridge the gap between lost sinners and a Holy God. True Biblical Christianity is God reaching DOWN to lost sinners by His GRACE. LOST SINNERS HOLY GOD RELIGION WILL NOT DO TRUE BIBLICIAL CHRISTIANITY
155 ETERNITY HOLY GOD WITH A MAN LOST IN SIN WRATH We are sinners, by nature and by choice and we deserve God’s WRATH. God is Holy and our sin is an insult against Him... but He offers GRACE.
156 Salvation by God’s GRACE. What does GRACE mean? On an Insurance policy, a 30 day “GRACE PERIOD” is… 30 days we don’t deserve. “All our righteousness (human efforts for salvation) are as FILTHY RAGS. (Isa. 64:6) If we could earn it, it would not be GRACE, it would be payment for services rendered, or salvation by our own human efforts. God’s salvation by GRACE means we don’t deserve it, we can’t earn it, it’s un-earnable.
157 How does God’s Word say we are saved? “For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Eph. 2:8,9) God clearly says we are saved by GRACE. He clearly says salvation is NOT of ourselves. He clearly says salvation is NOT of works. The GIFT of God is what He clearly calls it.
158 What about Good Works and Living a Good Life, aren’t they important too?” ANSWER: YES, but NOT for our salvation. Good Works and a Good Life should FOLLOW our salvation. (Eph. 2:10) They can be our “Thank You” to God for salvation, but they can NOT even HELP 1% to pay for our salvation. When people trust their human efforts, any %, they are NOT trusting the death of Christ 100% as THE payment for their sins. They are REJECTING God’s GIFT of Salvation which Christ PAID IN FULL.
159 God’s terms for our salvation are to BELIEVE ON Christ… 100%... trusting His shed blood as the COMPLETE payment for our sins. “He that believeth on the Son (Christ) hath (immediately possesses) everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life (eternal); but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36) The Bible, God’s Word says our salvation can only be by grace, through faith. The issue is not how much faith, but what is the OBJECT of our faith? WHAT are we trusting for salvation?
160 (A) He that believeth on the Son (Christ) hath (immediately possesses) everlasting life: Based on this promise of God (who can not lie), if you trust the death and shed blood of Christ alone (100%), as the TOTAL payment for your sins and salvation, what will you have? Now, look again at the TERMS and PROMISE in this double promise (A & B) in John 3:36: TERMS: He that believeth on the Son PROMISE: hath everlasting life; ANSWER:“EVERLASTING LIFE”
161 But, it’s a DOUBLE promise. Look at part B (B) And he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Some people say, “Nothing.” “Nothing” is not the correct answer. By NOT trusting Christ 100%, they have REJECTED God’s GIFT of Salvation. What do people have who do NOT trust Christ 100%? They have the promise of “the wrath of God abiding on them.”
162 In Eph. 2:8, God’s Word said our salvation is a GIFT… No one can work for a GIFT. We can only ACCEPT or REJECT a GIFT. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death: but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Have you accepted or rejected this GIFT Christ paid for you… with His death on the cross?
163 If you have not yet ACCEPTED God’s GIFT of salvation through Christ, OR… Do you realize the Lord Jesus Christ died for YOUR sins and rose again? YES ___ NO___ Will you place ALL your trust (100%) on the Lord Jesus Christ for your salvation right now, trusting His shed blood to be the only payment for your sins? YES ____ NO____ What is your response to Christ right now? If you’re not as sure as you’d like to be,
164 Which are you now trusting for your salvation? Your Human Efforts ____ Christ ____ or both ____ If you answered… Christ, you have understood God’s Word and His salvation BY GRACE. If you are trusting Christ alone (100%), you have met God’s terms for salvation. If you answered Human Efforts or Both please go back through this study again.
165 Your ASSURANCE of salvation should always be based on the PROMISES of the Bible, God’s Word, never on “feelings.” In I John 5:13, John wrote, “These things have I written (the promises of God’s Word) that ye may K-N-O-W that ye have eternal life…” And they are promises of “God who can not lie.” (Titus 1:2) It doesn’t say He will not lie. It says He CAN not lie. That’s even better! A major key to your understanding of God’s promises and your faith in Christ is to regularly attend a good Bible teaching church.
166 After trusting Christ 100%, all believers should be baptized, not as human efforts to help pay for their salvation, but as an act of obedience and public testimony of their total faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. It’s showing, “I am not ashamed to be identified with the Lord Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.” As you live a life pleasing to the Lord, He can enable you to help others know Christ, which will also be a great source of JOY for you.
167 Please always remember how much God loves YOU. His love should be the motivation for your life of worship and obedience to Him. For God so loved the world (mankind, including you and me), that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
