Thrones of Judgment

| | Comments (3)

Revelation 20:7-15

As we finish up Revelation 20 we get to the Great White Throne Judgment. This is a judgment that no one wants to be part of. It is for those people who have rejected Christ and not accepted Him as their Savior. It is a time for justice. At this point there is no more mercy and grace. That means no one who is at The Great White Throne Judgment will be going heaven. So knowing what we know about this Great White Throne Judgment, how important is it for us to make sure that no one we know is in attendance at this judgment?

There is a judgment we want to part of. It's for those people who have accepted Christ as Savior and it's known as the Judgment Seat of Christ or bema seat. We should look forward to this judgment because it is a time for rewards. Each of us as followers of Christ will stand before Him and receive rewards for those things or deeds we've done that are deemed worthy of reward.

So what are we doing today that will bring us reward as we stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ (the bema seat)? Tami W.

We must live in such a way that others can see and come to know Christ themselves. To be on the receiving end of God's wrath is a terrible thing. To receive His blessings and rewards is altogether wonderful.

This is a time for prayer for others and to live our lives so that Christ is seen in us (as Brian said so well). I had a strange encounter yesterday with my brother-in-law who told me I would like a person (that he doesn't care for) and we would get along well because he's a Christian and a Republican. I guess he sees Christ in me....he just doesn't want any part of it. So...lots of prayer for God to change his heart.

What am I doing today that will bring me reward when I stand before the judgment seat? We have to be careful about "Seeking" reward. It puts a lot of emphasis on 'works' and not on a relationship with Christ. There is nothing we can do in our own power. Seek His guidance in every thought, word, and action.

Obey the commandments, live morally correct, and leave self behind. Sounds easy, but it isn't, too many variables get in the way and we have to constantly refocus our intentions. I pray that and A for effort is substantial,as well as the grace of God.
