MEMORY VERSE: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Hebrews 9:27
BIBLE TEXT: Revelation 20:11-15
[11]And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
[12]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.
[13]And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
[14]And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
[15]And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: The Bible says in the book of Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this judgement”. God Himself is the Judge of mankind and He has the power and wisdom to judge with righteousness, truth and justice. Psalms 96:13. Rewards are offered by God to believers on the basis of faithful service rendered after salvation.
LESSON AIM: To let members understand there is judgement after the race on earth and there are rewards for faithful servants.
TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should:
– Understand the happenings on the judgement day.
– Intensify their services to God in order to get rewarded divinely.
Text Review: Revelation 20:11-15.
– There is a throne called GREAT WHITE THRONE in which all will face.
– There are books and there is a book called BOOK OF LIFE that accommodates names of the BRIDES of JESUS CHRIST.
– The end is here, get prepared.
