WORTHY OF THE KINGDOM by Thomas W. Finley
Significant Truths You Will Learn Here Are:
- The distinction between two great Biblical principles: Salvation by Grace Through Faith and Reward According to Works. An understanding of these two principles reconciles the long standing debate between the Calvinists and the Arminians concerning eternal security. Eternal security by God’s grace is affirmed, but the possibility of significant future loss to the unfaithful believer is also affirmed and explained.
- The Judgment Seat of Christ. Many details will be unveiled concerning this future momentous event where every born again believer will have his earthly life evaluated by Christ, the righteous Judge. Numerous Scriptures will show that the reward, or recompense, that the believer can receive from Christ in that day may take on a positive or a negative nature.
- The 1,000 year reign of Christ. This magnificent Kingdom will be explored and the possibilities for the Christian during that age, both positive and negative, will be brought to light from the Bible. This 1,000 year period, which precedes the eternal state, will be one of reward according to works for the believer.
- The overcoming Christian life. Such a victorious life is needed in order to be approved by the Lord Jesus at His Judgment Seat. For help with living such a life, please see the section of this site on The Victorious Christian Life.
