Summary: This judgment does not determine salvation. Everyone at the Great White Throne is an unbeliever
So far we have look at the Rapture, The Tribulation, Armageddon , Christ Return , and also answered some questions and last week The Millennium , and now at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ we are going to look at The Great White Throne Judgment. Remember, there are two separate judgments. Believers are judged at the Judgment Seat of Christ (Romans 14:10-12). This judgment is not about salvation, all of our sins are forgiven, and we will never be condemned for them (Romans 8:1). Judgment Seat of Christ is a time when believers must give an account of their lives in service to Christ. Believers will be rewarded based on those good works...how faithfully we served Christ.
The Great White Throne Judgment: This judgment does not determine salvation. Everyone at the Great White Throne is an unbeliever who has rejected Christ in life and is therefore already doomed to the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:12 says that unbelievers will be “judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Those who have rejected Christ as Lord and Saviour will be judged based on their works alone, and because the Bible tells us that “by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified” (Galatians 2:16), they will be condemned.
No amount of good works and the keeping of God’s laws can be sufficient enough to forgive sin. All their thoughts, words and actions will be judged against God’s perfect standard. There will be no reward for them, only eternal condemnation and punishment. The ones who die without Christ are judged and then separated from God forever.
Psalm 28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
There is no escaping judgment and Christ Jesus will be the judge.
Hebrews 9:27"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"
There is still time as long as you are in the body of flesh ....it's not too late. God has provided a way from being cast into Hell. It's through His Son Jesus Christ. Bible says in John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
The Greatness of this White Throne is not in the size of it, nor is it the number of the multitude who stand convicted before it, but in the greatness of the Judge who presides over it....the Lord Jesus. The white color is representative of His holiness and purity, and of how fitting it is that He should judge mankind.
The Great White Throne Judgment is NOT for Christians. It is only for those who refuse to accept the Lord Jesus Christ in this earthly life. To avoid this judgment, all one must do is repent and believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and invite Him to become his or her Lord and Saviour. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
Here is a rundown on what will happen after the Millennium: Satan will be freed from his chains..remember he was held in prison during the thousand years reign of Christ. Satan will gather a army to battle against Gods people and of course he will lose and be thrown into Hell forever along with the beast, false prophet, his angels and those unbelievers that are at the Great White Throne Judgment. This will be the end of rebellion against our Lord. There will be no second chances. God's grace has been sufficient down through the ages.
