THE JUDGMENT was in 70 A.D. By Tuese Ahkiong

THE JUDGMENT was in 70 A.D.
By Tuese Ahkiong

Some good questions to ask about THE JUDGMENT are:

Who?  To whom will the judgment fall? 
What is the judgment? Define it?

These verses should answer these questions.
**Christ states in Revelation written around 66 A.D., that He is coming soon bringing His recompense/ judgment. In 70 A.D., Christ came in the glory of The Father and brought judgment upon Apostate Israel.

Matthew 16:27-28 (ESV)
27 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. 28 TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, THERE ARE SOME STANDING HERE WHO WILL NOT TASTE DEATH UNTIL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN HIS KINGDOM.”
**Christ tells His disciples that SOME of THEM would not taste death until they see The Son of Man coming in His Kingdom. This meant that MOST of them would be dead before His return and only SOME would be still alive to see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom. This places the return of Christ in the 1st century "this generation" that Yeshua said He would return to before they go through all the cities of Israel. At His return in The Glory of His Father and then REPAY (judgment) each person according to what he has done.

Matthew 23:34-36 Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, 35 SO THAT ON YOU MAY COME ALL THE RIGHTEOUS BLOOD SHED ON EARTH, FROM THE BLOOD OF RIGHTEOUS ABEL TO THE BLOOD OF ZECHARIAH THE SON OF BARACHIAH, WHOM YOU MURDERED BETWEEN THE SANCTUARY AND THE ALTAR. 36 TRULY, I say to you, ALL THESE THINGS WILL COME UPON THIS GENERATION.
**Christ is stating to Pharisees and leaders of Israel that ON THEM will come all the responsibility for the murders of ALL the righteous blood spilt from Abel to Zechariah on that generation.

Matthew 24:29-31  “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. 34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

**Christ states that His generation will experience all these things from vs4-33.

Matthew 25:31-33 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left.

**Christ states He will come in glory like in Matt 16 & 24 to judge.  The nations here are limited to Israel.  The Old Covenant is what was in its last days and being harvested.

James 5:7-9 Be patient, therefore, brothers, UNTIL THE COMING OF THE LORD. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. 8 You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD IS AT HAND. 9 Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, THE JUDGE IS STANDING AT THE DOOR.
**Why would James tell his readers to be patient until the coming of The Lord if The Lord isn’t coming in their life time? James tells the 1st century recipients of his letter that the coming of the Lord is at hand. James then states that the judge, Christ is standing at the door ready to enter and begin judgment.

Hebrews 9:28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
***Notice that these Hebrew passages are in context of Christ’s return, which was in a little while without delay to the first century saints.

1 Peter 4:5 but they will give account to HIM WHO IS READY TO JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD.
1 Peter 4:17 FOR IT IS TIME FOR JUDGMENT TO BEGIN AT THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
**Notice how from 1 Peter that Christ, The Judge is READY to judge.

Acts 17:30-31(YLT) the times, indeed, therefore, of the ignorance God having overlooked, doth NOW command all men everywhere to reform, 31 because He did set a day in which HE IS ABOUT TO JUDGE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, by a man whom He did ordain, having given assurance to all, having raised him out of the dead.'
**Luke states that NOW (1ST century around 59 A.D.) God commands “all people” everywhere to repent because He is ABOUT TO judge the world….

Romans 14:10-12 (ESV)
10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? FOR WE WILL ALL STAND BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF GOD; 11 for it is written,
“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”
12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
***Who is the “we” that Paul is speaking about?

2 Corinthians 5:6- 10  So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 10 FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST, SO THAT EACH ONE MAY RECEIVE WHAT IS DUE FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THE BODY, WHETHER GOOD OR EVIL.

          Rev. 3:11 I AM COMING SOON. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.  
          *HOW LONG IS SOON?

Revelation 20:11-15 (ESV)
11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were JUDGED by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were JUDGED, each one of them, according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
***The events in the book of Revelation are said to be near, at hand, soon, (1:1,3;22:6,10, 12).

Romans 5:16  And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For THE JUDGMENT following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification.

A: Jerusalem, The Temple’s destruction. Matt 24:1-34  The Old Covenant World

A: Christ said within that first century generation.  The 9th of Av 70 A.D., the same day the first temple was destroyed in 586 B.C.
