We as Christians would just get all our ducks in a row, in terms of doctrine etc., if we would just settle and agree upon this one fact FIRST - that Jesus Christ is Lord and we will all stand before the Judgment seat of Christ.
In other words, by the work of the Cross, God has turned over all things to Christ Jesus, even yours and my future. I don't even reckon #calvinism #arminianism #finneyism #whitefieldism or your favorite ism can stand before this tremendous fact - Jesus Christ is Lord!
God has turned the whole lot over to Jesus Christ, HaMashiach!
Bow to this King or be damned - that's His Lordship!
Believe or be cast into the Lake that burns with Fire - that's His Kingship!
Christ has triumphed and has gotten the keys of hell and of death - believe it or not, you don't have to go to hell - if you'd only Bow your knee to Him!
Christ is Lord and that makes Him King and as Lord He can save or destroy!
He is King and as King can demand repentance, surrender, utter yielding to Him. When you Bow to King you leave it up to Him to take off your head or grant mercy. That's the only way we will reckon with God and with the Holy Bible.
Quit with this "I am of Calvin," "I am of Arminius," "I am of Apollus," or, "I have the right root of the matter because I was 'saved' ten years ago." Bow now! And Bow afresh every single day and entrust yourself to the King of kings and Lord of lords.
"All my ways are before Thee." (Psalm 119)
