I think frances 008 makes a good point but I would add that the "saved" will stand as a witness against evil doers as well.:)

Our use of 'judge' is for many meanings. Clearly, the saints are not going to receive punishment. They have already been promised that their reward is sure, it is written in the Bible in many places. Those who deliberately disobey or reject that Jesus is Lord, or who worship the beast, or receive the mark, they will be judged meaning sentenced. They will be sentenced to eventual destruction in the lake of fire. On judgement day, the rewarded are not judged, just rewarded.

I believe that they will be able to testify and say good things about the unsaved, and so obtain for them leniency when being judged. This would explain why some evil people fear and dread Chrstians, because they know that the Christian has some legal power over them.

But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life. The unsaved were cast into the Lake of Fire. The Saints will be judged according to their works and rewarded accordingly.

1Ti 5:24 Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment, and some [men] they follow after.
Christians our sins are confessed and go now. But we will still stand before the throne to hear our sentance of forgivness. Those who retain thier sins will die for them.
Hbr 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
All will fact judgment. Christians by repenting and forsaking them send them under the blood of JESU.

If 1st. Thessalonians 4:17 "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD." Takes place before the great white throne judgment. It all for proof that all the great white throne judgment the saved as well as the unsaved. The saved will serve as witnesses against the unsaved. We know who the judge is at great white throne, and if the saved are to be with him forever we'll be there.

The great white throne is where every unbeliever from Lucifer until that time. At that throne, God does the judgement. At the judgement seat of Christ, once the rapture occurs, Jesus will judge/award believers according to their works. This will be during the 7-yr. tribulation period.(Romans 14:10; 2Corinthians 5:10)

Yes, all will be judged, but the White Throne judgment will be only for the lost. There is a difference. The saved will suffer loss and gain rewards if due them, but will have eternal life. At least this is what I get out of the Word. The lost will go to hell.

Amen, Fred, amen. I know exactly where you are coming from.

God will judge the good (christians) and the bad (sinners). All will stand before God in the judgment seat. Romans 14:10, 2 Cor 5:10, Ec 3:17, Acts 17:31, Rev 20:4, Heb 9:27, 2 Tim 4:8.

I think the judgment of man began with Christ, the first finished man, as he himself said, "Now is the judgment of this world now shall the prince of this world be cast out, and I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." (John 12: 31, 32).

A lot of people perceive "a day" as a 24 hr. period. 2 Peter 3:7-8 say that a day with the Lord is a thousand yrs. From this we may infer that the judgment day may be a long period of time of perhaps a thousand years, or longer. This view is still further confirmed by Rev. 20:4, where John says, "And I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given unto them . . . and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
