The Coming Judgment
1. We believe there will be a pre-millennial bodily 'taking away' in the twinkling of an eye of the true believers, known as 'The Rapture.' The dead will be raised first, then immediately after, those believers which remain alive. This will be followed by seven years of tribulation such as the world has never known, nor shall ever be again. After the tribulation it will come to pass that our Lord and Savior will come again in the fullness of His Glory, bodily to the earth. See: (I Corinthians 15:52, I Thessalonians 4:15-17, II Thessalonians 2:1).
2. The Lord Jesus Christ will reign supreme upon the earth for 1,000 years, followed by the bodily resurrection and ascension of the righteous, to eternal life in the glories of heaven, and the unsaved to eternal damnation of the wicked in hell. See: (Matthew 25:46, Luke 18:30, John 10:28, Romans 6:22, I John 5:11-13). We also recommend ( Matthew 25:41-46, Mark 3:29, II Thessalonians 1:8-9, Revelations 20:10-15 & 21:8).
3. There shall be a judgment of the wicked known as the Great White Throne Judgment. "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 no place for them. 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." (Revelations 20:21-22). There will be no in between state; there will be death, and then the judgment. "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 10:27).
4. Those believing in faith plus nothing ignore half the teachings on salvation. "What doth if profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? (James 2:14). Being half right only means being totally wrong, for "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." (James 2:17). Again, the principle is 'holiness,' thus the New Birth changes us. Holiness is the process of a changed life, and it does not cause the New Birth, but rather occurs as a result of the experience.
