INTRODUCTION

In last weekend’s sermon we talked at length about the HYPOCRISY of the RELIGIOUS LEADERS of Israel at that time – the Pharisees and the Sadducees. Truth to tell, hypocrisy is a plague
that besets all of mankind

I. The Radical Herald’s Message to the Religious Hypocrites vv. 7 – 10

a. False Assumption & Truth to act upon vv. 7 – 8
b. False Security & Truth to believe in v. 9
c. False Believers’ impending judgment v. 1

II. The Radical Herald and the Radical King vv. 11 – 12
a. The Radical Herald’s Ministry v. 11
b. The Radical King’s Greatness & Ministry v. 11
c. The Radical King’s Judgment & Reward v. 12

BODY SERMON

c. False Believers’ impending judgment v. 10

10“The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Messiah’s coming would be marked by JUDGMENT.

CONCLUSION

Whether we like it or not, there will be a time of reckoning with our God. The question is: “Are you prepared to face Him?”

Where do you think will be your landing place – heaven or hell? Will you receive JUDGMENT or REWARD.

It all depends on who Jesus is to you. If Jesus means NOTHING to you, then the lake of fire awaits you. If Jesus is the Lord and Savior of your life, then the PERFECT LIFE awaits you. It is as simple as that
