Reprover of Judgment
“He will reprove the world…of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” John 16:8-11.
In Revelation 12:7-10, we read the account of satan’s fall from glory; of how he fought against Michael, the Commander of all the angels, who is none other than Jesus Christ, Himself – “…the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people…” Daniel 12:1
Jesus is also the deliverer of His people, when they find themselves in the midst of great persecution; “… and …thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1
When the enemy of souls fell from heaven, he was cast into the earth – Revelation 12:12 - where he in turn has caused much woe. However, when Jesus rose from the tomb, judgment against satan was eternally passed. Christ victory meant satan’s ultimate defeat.
Consequently, those who choose Christ will be redeemed when He comes; but those who refuse Christ choose satan by default (there are only two choices to be made) – therefore, judgment passes upon all mankind. It’s just a matter of which side you wish to be found.
I have learned that choosing Christ’s side, even in difficult times, is the best side! Won’t you choose Him today, as your own?
