THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST
LIGHT BRINGS RESPONSIBILITY
The Judgment Seat of Christ will be set up when the
Lord Jesus Christ returns to the earth.
"..the Lord Jesus Christ..shall judge the quick and
the dead at his appearing and his kingdom".
-2nd Timothy 4v1
The judgment will reveal who are righteous and who
are wicked in the sight of God and Christ.
"Then shall ye return, and discern between the
righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth
God and him that serveth him not".
Judgment will be based upon a responsibility to God.
Responsibility comes about through a knowledge of
the Truth, and this becomes the basis for judgment.
"He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words,
hath one that judgeth him:the word that I have spo-
ken, the same shall judge him in the last day".
"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into
the world, and men loved darkness rather than light".
Those who are ignorant of the Truth are not
called personally before the Judgment Seat of Christ.
He that "understandeth not, is like the beasts that
perish".."The man that wandereth out of the way of
understanding shall remain in the congregation of the
dead".."And the times of this ignorance God winked at;
but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent”..
“They are dead, they shall not
live; they are deceased, they shall not rise".
-Psalm 49v20,Proverbs 21v16
-Acts 17v30,Isaiah 26v14
The judgment involves the gathering of all those who
will have become responsible. When Christ returns,
most will be dead, though some will still be living.
Those who at that time are in the grave will be res-
urrected and taken to the place of judgment together
with those who are still alive.
"And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth
shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to
shame and everlasting contempt".."(they)shall come
forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrec-
tion of life; and they that have done evil, unto the re-
surrection of damnation".."he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whoso-
ever liveth and believeth in me shall never die".
-Daniel 12v2,John 5v29;11v25,26.
The popular "church" teachings of heaven and hell-
going are clearly unscriptural (link to 'mortal' below).
The most common words translated
'hell' should be rendered 'grave' as in
Psalm 31v17 ('sheol')
1st Corinthians 15v55 ('hades')
Inaccurate biased translations only serve
to perpetuate the errors of the apostate "church"
as noted in many of our pages.
On several occasions the meaning is symbolic of
future judgment, & the destruction of the wicked-
see Malachi 4v1,2nd Thessalonians 1v5-10
