WORKS MADE MANIFEST      
"Each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is." [1 Corinthians 3. 13] 

 

This SCRIPTURE is the key verse that gives the principle by which the SOVEREIGN OF THE UNIVERSE will evaluate our works in that Great Day when all will be assembled before "the Judgment Seat of CHRIST." [Romans 14. 10; 2 Corinthians 5. 10]  This is the time when the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE will separate the good from the bad — the sheep from the goats — the righteous will be invited into the Kingdom, and the unrighteous will be thrown into the Eternal Fire. [Matthew 25. 31 - 46]   "For the SON OF MAN will come in the glory of HIS FATHER with HIS angels, and then HE will reward each according to his works." [Matthew 16. 27]  When the purifying fire tries our works, "if anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire." [1 Corinthians 3. 14 - 15] 

 

Take careful notice of the basis which the  LORD GOD uses to determine the rewards or the loss of rewards…it is not the amount of work done — the number of witnessing contacts or souls won to the BELOVED MASTER, not the number of peoples taught, nor the amount of money given.  Neither are rewards based on the type of work done; mental or physical labor is no less eligible for heavenly rewards than is the ministry of the GOSPEL. 

 

The criterion of the eternal value of a believer’s work on earth is what sort it is!  Specifically, what is the motivation of the work, the sincerity, the dedication, the obedience?  In other words, the quality, rather then the quantity of results or type of occupation.  It is not the nature of the work or its size, but the sort (quality) that is being judged.  Y’SHUA knows that "he who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much" [Luke 16. 10; Matthew 25. 21], so HE will "give to every one according to his work." [Revelation 22. 12] 

 

Therefore, "whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the LORD and not to men, knowing that from the LORD you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the LORD CHRIST." [Colossians 3. 23 - 24]  "And behold, I am coming quickly, and MY reward is with ME, to give to every one according to his work." [Revelation 22. 12]   "Yes!says the SPIRIT that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them." [Revelation 14. 13]  In all that you do, may your rewards go before you and the LORD your GOD will graciously bless you.

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
O FATHER in Heaven, YOU are our GUIDE even unto death. Grant us, I pray grace to follow YOU wherever YOU go.  In little daily duties to which YOU call us, bow down our wills to simple obedience, patience under pain or frustration, strict truthfulness of word and manner, humility, kindness; in great acts of duty or perfection, if YOU should call us to them, uplift us to self-sacrifice, heroic courage, laying down our life for the sake of YOUR Truth for our family, our children, our friends, or for our brother. Amen.
Day 38 of the Omer 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
