“… we will all give an account of ourselves to God. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another.“
Someday we will all stand before God; Christians before the Judgment or Bema Seat of Christ, non-believers before the White Throne Judgment Seat of God Almighty. Just because people don’t believe that doesn’t make it not so. One school of thought regarding the Bema Seat is that believers will not have to pay for sins committed while under the blood, but rather will gain or lose rewards in heaven based on what we either did or did not do for Christ on this earth.
The White Throne Judgment is for every non-believer throughout time. Its judgment is swift and sure; it is irreversible. Those who have NOT accepted Christ and what He has done on the cross shall be found guilty of living for themselves and relying on their own good works to achieve heaven. Only the blood of Christ can save a soul from hell. They shall be cast into the lake of fire for all eternity.
We must stop being judge and jury, of which I am one of the worst. We must pray for lost souls that they may realize their condition and receive Christ. It is our commission and directive as believers.
2 Peter 3:9 (TNIV) “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
