Who Seeks After A Sign?

By Jocelyn Andersen

 

In Paul’s sermon on Mars Hill, he preached about the living God who would one day judge the world by the one who rose from the dead.

 

Since there are three only judgments described in the Word of God, and only one of them, The Judgment of the Nations, dealing specifically with judging the world, I believe it is very likely that this is the judgment Paul is alluding to in Acts 17:31.

 

At the Judgment of the Nations, several groups will be assisting Christ in the process. The twelve Apostles of the Lamb will be judging the twelve tribes of Israel. The resurrected and raptured saints will be also be participating in judging the world. And the holy angels will be active in separating the wheat from the chaff (Matthew 19:28, 13:41-42 1 Corinthians 6:2-3).

 

The first 75 days after Christ Returns to establish his Kingdom here on earth, will be a very busy time with each group of people (mortals who survived The Great Tribulation) being judged by the Children of the Resurrection—those who have been ordained by Christ to carry out his judicial processes here on earth. Even though different groups will be judged by different ones who have been caught out or resurrected, it seems Christ will reserve his personal attention for at least one specific group—those who impersonated him or performed lying wonders in his name (Daniel 12:11-12, Matthew 7:22).  

 

In Matthew 7:22, Jesus is very clear that false prophets would be answering directly to him while pleading for their lives at the Judgment of the Nations.

 

He also issues a clear warning, in both Matthew 7:21-23 and Mark 13:22, that incredible lying wonders, (miracles, signs and wonders) would be taking place in order to deceive the people of the earth into losing their souls.

 

In the Revelation, John was shown that spirits of devils would be loosed on the earth that would be performing miracles (Revelation 16:14).

 

In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-11, we are told the Man of Sin (the antichrist) will be a miracle working man. He will demonstrate tremendous supernatural power, miracles and lying wonders—and many will consign their souls to hell by following after the miracles, the signs and the wonders.

 

We are also told in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 that the mystery of iniquity that will reveal itself in all its fullness in the Man of Sin… is already at work today.

 

Jesus warned the people of his day not to seek after signs. He identified those who sought after signs as being wicked and adulterous.

 

Christians, do not follow after those who claim to be prophets and apostles and point to signs and wonders as vindication of that claim. These clouds without water, if they survive The Great Tribulation, will one day pass under the judgment rod of Jesus Christ. They will receive his personal attention and hear those dreaded words—I never knew you (Matthew 7:23, 12:38, Jude 12).

Be careful what you eat...
