Welcome to our website

WILL WE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE???

Accountability . . . is to be held responsible fro your actions. We are accountable to God fro what we do and say in our lives; how we act, what we think, and what we do with our talents and abilities God has given us.

We are accountable for many of our problems.

Judges 6:13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. [KJV] Gideon questioned God about the problems he and his nation faced, and about God's obvious lack of help. But he didn't admit the fact that he and the people had brought misery upon themselves when they decided to disobey and neglect God. It is very easy to overlook our own personal accountability, and blame our problems on God or someone else. But, no matter who we try to blame, this does not solve our problems. It will bring us no closer to God, and it will guide us to the very edge of rebellion and serious backsliding. Any time problems come, the FIRST place to look, is within ourselves! Confess to God those sins that may have created the difficulty (1 John 1:9).

We are accountable to Christ.

Romans 14:10-12 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. [11] For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. [12] So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. [KJV] Each and every person is accountable to Christ, NOT to anyone else! The church must be firm in its stand against activities that are explicitly forbidden by Scripture: adultery, homosexuality, murder, theft, etc., but it should not create additional (man-made) rules and regulations and give those rules equal standing with God's Law. Many times Christians base their moral judgments on opinions or personal dislikes, rather than the Word of God. This displays weak faith on their part, for they do not think God is powerful enough, or wise enough to guide His children. When we stand before the Judgment Seat, we will not be concerned about what our neighbor has done, just what we have done, or not done.

2 Cor. 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.[KJV] Each and every TRUE child of God receives eternal life, for it is a FREE GIFT given by Him to believers in His Son, on the basis of God's grace.

John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [KJV]

Ephes. 2:8-10 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. [KJV]

But . . . each and every person will still be judged by Christ at the Judgment Seat. We shall stand before Christ, ALONE . . . all by ourselves! This judgment will either give us rewards for how we lived after we were saved OR we will lose rewards we could have had! God's gracious gift of salvation in NO way frees us from the requirement of faithful obedience. All Christians MUST give account for how they lived.See: Judgment Seat.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. [KJV] Christ Jesus has been given complete authority to judge ALL the Earth! Are you ready?

Philip. 2:9-11 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. [KJV] There is NONE, other than Jesus, that God exalts as highly as His precious Son! The Name of Jesus is known, above every other name, even to the most remote corners of the Earth. But, sad to say, not all people, in fact just a "few", respect and reverence that Name! Most often, His Holy Name is degraded by horrible blasphemy. BUT, this will not always be the case! Isaiah prophesied about 2700 years ago EVERY knee would one day bow, and EVERY tongue would confess Jesus as Lord! Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. [KJV] THIS SHALL HAPPEN! I want to be on the good side of Him at the judgment, so I will gladly and humbly, bow to Him NOW, and confess that He is Lord NOW.

If you wait for another day, it may be too late for you, for you shall be held accountable if you reject Him. None of us know how long we will be on this Earth.

Although His judgment is already working in our lives, there is a final, future judgment when Christ returns. All born again Christians shall face a judgment! Their eternal destiny is secure, but Jesus will look at how we handled gifts, opportunities and responsibilities in order to determine our heavenly rewards OR losses.

1 Cor. 3:10-15 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. [11] For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. [12] Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; [13] Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. [14] If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. [15] If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. [KJV] Christ is the Foundation! If we build our lives on Him, we will be mature, spiritually sensitive and doctrinally sound. OUR WORK is how we build. Building with gold, silver and precious stones is anything we do for the cause of Christ. Building with wood, hay and straw is anything you do for self and the world. When the judgment comes . . . and it shall, ALL those haystacks will be tested by fire (His judgment) and burned up! The fire will also gobble up the straw and wood too. The person himself shall be saved, if only by the skin of his/her teeth, but ALL their works will be gone. They shall suffer great loss! NO reward! Only gold, silver and precious stones (things done for Christ) will make it through the fire. We CANNOT work to gain salvation, but these verses tell us we can work for our rewards in Heaven.

We absolutely shall be held accountable for our every action and every word! We will NOT be able to hide one little thing; everything will be brought out in the open (Mark 4:22; 1 Cor.4:5). Are you ready to stand before this awesome and almighty Judge?

Will I Be Held Accountable??

When you receive Christ Jesus into your life as your personal Saviour and Lord, you obtain the privileged GIFT of eternal life; BUT you immediately obtain a tremendous responsibility! You have been entrusted with the Message of the Gospel (Good News about Jesus), and you are responsible for what you do with it in your life. At the Judgment Seat of Christ, what we have done on this Earth for Christ will be carefully considered before Almighty God and displayed before the rest of the world. All those who have done much with what God has given them will be greatly rewarded. All those who were slack in serving Him will lose rewards they could have had.

The questions we all must ask ourselves are:

  1. Will what am I doing for Christ and His Kingdom stand . . . or fall?
  2. Am I doing all I can to tell people about Jesus and what He can do for them?

If you are willingly and earnestly serving the cause of Christ, you shall be greatly rewarded!

What Does God's Word Have to Say On This Subject?

The more we know, the greater our responsibility. The Lord holds those who have been given positions of spiritual leadership to a higher accountability for what they do (Luke 12:48; James 3:1). The greater your spiritual gift (or gifts), the more God will require of you. The higher up you are, thet greater your responsibility.

We are responsible for our own sins and mistakes. We CANNOT pass blame onto someone else for our failings and foolish choices (Jer.31:30). ALL people will be held personally accountable for the sinin their own lives. Do you make excuses for your sins? NO excuse will hold up before the Great Judge!

We need to invest our abilities and resourses in God's Kingdom. God ever so graciously has given each of His children certain abilities, gifts, talents and resources to invest into the growth of His Kingdom.It is our DUTY to use any and all these gifts or abilities to edify the Body of Christ (Luke 19:11-26). We must use our gifts and abilities to honor and glorify God, NOT for selfish reasons.

The value of our work will be tested. On Judgment Day, the quality of our faith and our work done for Jesus will be tested and revealed and rewarded accordingly.

What was our motives for serving Jesus? This too shall be tested and made known. Why did you serve Him? Was it because you love Him? Or was it for selfish reasons?
