"You have gone far enough"
"All the congregation are just as holy as you.
"The Lord is just as much in our midst as He is yours."
"The Lord is with us just as much as He is with you?

EXO 33:11 Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend.

DEU 34:10 Since then no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the   Lord knew face to face,

The Doctrine of the Supreme Court of Heaven.

Point 1. Introduction. The supreme court of heaven is composed of the three persons of the Godhead--God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

God has Divine integrity or holiness, which is composed of God's justice and righteousness.

Deu 32:4 "The rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and upright is He.

Psa 119:67 before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Thy word.

Psa 119:71 it is good for me that I was afflicted, that I may learn Thy statutes.

Psa 119:75 I know, O Lord, that Thy judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness Thou hast afflicted me.

Rev 19:1-2, "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God; because His judgments are true and righteous"

2Sa 22:31 "as for God His ways are blameless"

This means that, as believers, we can rely fully on the knowledge that whatever God does in our lives is consistent with His righteous attitudes and actions.

God's holiness also includes His justice as well as His righteousness.

2Ch 19:7 "Now then let the respect for the Lord be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the Lord our God will have no part in unrighteousness, or partiality, or the taking of a bribe."

  1. To the mature believers, God expresses His justice in blessing. 2. To the carnal or apostate believers He expresses His justice through divine discipline, as in Heb 12:6.
  2. Omniscience, which means that all of the three judges have known all of the facts of every case from eternity past.

Job 37:16, "He is One who is perfect in knowledge"

God is not limited by time and therefore His knowledge is superimposed over time.

God has never had to learn a thing!

He has always known everything, every thought, every motive, every event and every action of every person who would ever live!

Assured is the Hebrew word ashash which means to have assurance and confidence.

Omniscience means that there is nothing in your life that could ever happen that God didn't know about billions and billions of years ago.

Joh 13:7, "what I do you do not realize now, but you shall understand hereafter."

As the apostle Paul said in Rom 11:33 "Oh,the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable are His ways."

It is God's intention that every believer come to understand everything in the Bible in His time for you to understand.

Deu 29:29 "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever."

Rom 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."

PRIN-For the mature believer, in areas of his life where others are disturbed and freaking out, in those same areas he has a R.M.A.

Knowing the character of God and His omniscience is the daily understanding that no matter what a day may bring, whether adversity or prosperity, there's a divine purpose for it.

Knowing everything He has also provided from His omnipotence, a divine solution for every problem.

This plan was designed specifically from His omniscience which knew every solution for every problem that you would ever need.

  1. Omniscience tells us that we were known by God in eternity past. 2. Foreknowledge tells us that we were in the mind of God in eternity past. 3. Predestination tells us that we were in the plan of God in eternity past.
  2. Divine integrity or holiness, which is composed of God's justice and righteousness.
  3. Omniscience, which means that all of the three judges have known all of the facts of every case from eternity past.
  4. Sovereignty, which means that the decisions rendered by the court come from perfect, eternal, incorruptible, divine volition.

Deu 4:39 know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other.

  1. Omnipotence, which means that all three members of the court have the power to execute all sentences, all judgments of the court.

The only thing that hinders a judgment from being carried out is that a believer gets in the way through reaction, seeking revenge, arrogance sins, emotional sins, lust to hurt others.

Omnipotence means that God is all powerful and limitless in ability. This is why He is called God almighty as in Gen 17:1.

We are also told that nothing is too difficult for Him, Gen 18:14.

Isa 40:26 lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power not one of them is missing.

Jer 27:5 "I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one who is pleasing in My sight."

As Heb 1:3 says "He upholds all things by the word of His power".

This power is also used by God to keep the believer safe for Him forever as in 1Pe 1:5, "You are protected by the power of God"

You must understand that all that happens is not from the power of God.

God has allowed both angels and mankind to possess volition, and both angels and mankind have used that volition in a negative way.

When we understand the omnipotence of God, we will be assured that "nothing is to hard for Him" as Jer 32:7 states.

Mat 19:26, "with God all things are possible"

Job said after he went through more suffering than anyone alive "I know that You can do all things" in Job 42:1.

Psa 119:68 Thou art good and doest good; teach me Thy statutes.

Each member of the Godhead is perfect in person and in character. Therefore, approaching the supreme court of heaven for redress of grievances, or as a plaintiff, or as a victim of injustice,

or as an injured party of vilification, misrepresentation, character assassination, child abuse, or victim of the public lie......demands the faith-rest drill.

Point 2. The supreme court of heaven is open twenty-four hours a day.

  1. Evil in the world. B. Sinfulness and injustice in human affairs. C. The rise and the fall of nations. D. Anti-Semitism, personal or national.
  2. Conflicts among believers. F. Satanic accusations against believers. G. Divine discipline of believers. H. Child abuse.
  3. Jesus Christ is God. He is co-equal with God, superior to mankind, and perfect mankind in one person forever. Therefore, He is the perfect judge.
  4. Jesus Christ, as the son of man, emphasizing his hypostatic union, makes him the unique judge sitting on the supreme court of heaven.
  5. The rebound technique--we have the right to judge ourselves by naming our sins and being forgiven by God, 1Co 11:27-30.
  6. The judgment of the believer's works after the Rapture of the church at the judgment seat of our Lord Jesus Christ, 1Co 3:11-15, 2Co 5:10.
  7. The judgment of all "believers" at the baptism of fire at the second advent of Christ. Mat 13:24‑30, 36‑40, Mat 13:47‑50.
  8. The judgment of all "unbelievers" at the baptism of fire at the second advent of Christ. Mat 25:31‑46.
  9. The judgment of Satan and all fallen angels at the end of the Millennium, Rev 20:1-10.
  10. The judgment of all unbelievers at the end of the Millennium.
