The Final Battle - Revelation 19:11-16

"There's one thing worse than hell and the same thing is worse is better than heaven. You know what it is? It's influence. It's going to either place and taking somebody with you. On that day when Christ reigns and rules, on that day, those that love him will be thankful to those that lead them there like you can't believe. And those that, that follow the enemy, Satan, into everlasting judgment are going to be sadness beyond sadness."

Transcription:

00:13          Do you know there's one thing that's worse than hell and the same thing is better than heaven? What is that? It's worse than hell. It is better than heaven and it's the same thing. Do you know what it is? Revelation chapter nine verses 11 through 16, "and I saw heaven open and behold a white horse and he who sat on it is called faithful and true and in righteousness he judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire and on his head are many diadems and he has a name written on him which no one knows except himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood and his name is called the word of God and the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean were following him on white horses and from his mouth comes a sharp sword so that with it he may strike down the nations and he will rule them with a rod of iron and he treads on the wine press of the fierce wrath of God the Almighty and on his robe. And on his thigh, he has a name written. He is king of kings and Lord of Lords."
 
01:24          This men and women is the final and greatest victory of all time as Jesus rides in with his saints, with those who follow him. And he ends the final battle, the final battle of Armageddon, the final battle on earth, the final battle of all time. And you know what? We get to come in with him and we get to ride and we get to reign and we get to rule with him, as true sincere followers of Christ. There's one thing worse than hell and the same thing is worse is better than heaven. You know what it is? It's influence. It's going to either place and taking somebody with you. On that day when Christ reigns and rules, on that day, those that love him will be thankful to those that lead them there like you can't believe. And those that, that follow the enemy, Satan, into everlasting judgment are going to be sadness beyond sadness.
 
02:24          So my question for you today is this, who are you influencing today and how are you influencing them? And you know what? You can't escape it. You and I are an influence every day of our life. We're either influencing people to heaven or we're influencing people to hell. And not so much by words, but by the way we live our lives and the way we act. And so as you visualize the victory and you visualize the one that reigns and rules and you visualize the greatest victory celebration of all time. One, where are you going to be? Two, how are you going to get there? And then three, what are you going to do to influence the people in your family and in your school and in your place of business? What are you going to do to influence people to be on that victory ride with you? Is there anything more motivating to live a life pleasing to Christ than that on this earth?
