Deuteronomy 12:1-32; Song of Solomon 2:8-3:5; Luke 9:37-62

The Lord…cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. Psalm 96:13
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 7:21

There are many passages in the Old Testament telling us the Lord is coming to judge the earth and its people. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus of Nazareth said that in the day of judgment, He will be the one to decide who enters the kingdom of heaven. This claim is astonishing, even heretical, unless indeed He is the Lord. —P. W.

What will you do with Jesus?
Neutral you cannot be;
Someday your heart will be asking,
“What will He do with me?” —A. B. Simpson
