Thrones of Judgment
Revelation 20:7-15 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison...
think about it.
What does John see happen at the throne in this chapter (20:11-15)? How can you make sure your name is written in the book of life?
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.
P.S. If you want to learn more about heavenly rewards and the Judgment Seat of Christ, Dr. Kroll has an excellent book called Facing Your Final Job Review. It's a great resource that has taught me much. I highly suggest it.
