TG: Judgment: Rev 16:7 – “I hear another… say… Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are they judgments.”
-This establishes the standard for judgment. This statement also recognizes from where all truth flows. It is only appropriate that the final judge of our labors be He who has all truth.
¿? – Will we be held accountable for all our works? 1 Nephi 10:20 – “Therefore, remember, O man, for all thy doings thou shalt be brought into judgment.”
¿? -What will become of us after the death of our bodies? 2 Nephi 9:15, “And it shall come to pass that when all men shall have passed from this first death unto life, insomuch as they have become immortal, they must appear before the judgment-seat of the Holy One of Israel (Christ); and then cometh the judgment, and then must they be judged according to the holy judgment of God.”
Vs. 16 goes one to explain that our state at the Judgment and afterwards will be that as it was before hand. Those that were righteous and prepared will know what to expect and will be righteous still.
This provokes other ideas but I’d like to see them supported by scripture first.
2 Nephi 9:46 – This scripture tells much.
At the last
day judgment, justice will be administered to the righteous. We are commanded to be prepared so we don’t shrink with fear because of our guilt.
suggest teaches that at that day we will be perfect, I believe that means immortal, and in being in such a state we will know clearly all our guilt. For if we arrive at the day, still with that burden of guilt, we will be forced to proclaim: “Holy, holy, are thy judgments, O Lord God Almighty – but I know my guilt; I transgressed the law, and my transgressions are mine (not Adam’s); and the devil hath obtained me that I am a prey to his awful misery. ”
Let the myth that when we become immortal we also become sinless be dismissed. For it is not so and we will then understand our guilt for our bodies, minds, hearts will be perfect.
Conclusion for the day: Even in briefly studying these verses, my understanding of the judgment is clearer and I am drawn [to] appreciate more so the need for the gospel of Jesus Christ, to prepare us for that great and final day. BL
