Judgement For Christians
John 5:24," Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life." Does this mean that Christians do not face judgment unto condemnation?

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ-so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body- according to what he has done-whether good or bad. 2Corin-5:10 "For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS Matt-16:27.
Rom-2-6(K)God,who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS:7-to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality-eternal-life,

A person,upon death, has by technicality judged theirself.From death to the roll call the person has no way to correct their undiluted evil, sin they do.The roll call is a formality prior to personality resurection only. The roll call is the final action and no lawyering before the judge is performed once the books are opened.

I will start with John 419-24 where Jesus continues His claim to be equal with God. John 5:24>>>The raising of the dead refers both to a physical and spititual accomplishment. One day ALL the dead will be raised to stand before Christ in judgment, This is scarey stuff folks if you are lost, your final destiny. The Great White Throne Judgment. Rom. 14:10, Rev. 20: 11-15.

What's up with I S, he's signed off on several of these blogs the same way. Anybody know?

The Judgment Seat of Christ, therefore, involves believers giving an account of their lives to Christ. The Judgment Seat of Christ does not determine salvation, that was determined by Christs sacrifice on our behalf (1 John 2:2), and our faith in Him (John 3:16). All of our sins are forgiven and we will never be condemned for them (Romans 8:1). We should not look at the Judgment Seat of Christ as God judging our sins, but rather as God rewarding us for our lives.

That does not speak of God's Judgment, that is false SDA theology.

Christians are judged already:
Romans 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
The sins we commit we are purged from through discipline or repentance. (Hebrews 12:6-8)
Christians are punished when they do God wrong and don't repent so that judgment and punishment for sin will be made when the time has come.
If God didn't do this he'd have to hand us over to Satan (Rev 12:10) later or sacrifice his holiness and let sin go unpunished.

We all will face judgements from God. We all will be judged on every good and bad thing we've done and said. After one is being judged by God, he will either put that person with the sheep (righteous people) or with the goats (sinners). The choice is ours. Our past sins are under the blood. A person can't be forgiven over something if they haven't commited that sin yet and didn't ask for forgiveness.

Ecc 3:17 says God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. Romans 14:10, 2 Cor 5:10 says we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. It is appointed for all men to die once, after that the judgment. Heb 9:27. Every person is judged according to their works. Rev 20:13.

Matt. 7:21-27My Lord says, Many WILL say unto me on that day, Hav'nt I Prophesied in your name,hav'nt i done this & done that in your name?And he WILL answer them "I Never Knew You"These people sound like they are Christians to me!Self Righetousness is a Stumbling Block, So be Careful...Rev.3:5 says your name can be blotted out of the book of life. Matt.25:31-46

That is what scripture means. Judgment: Goes does not delay Judgment on those that HATE HIM. [Deut.7:10-17].
---catherine on 2/25/08|
There is no point in being Christian if you are going to end up being judged by the very person who gave his Life that you might Live. No you won't face judgement if you are a real Christian. All your sins are under the blood of the Lamb. Don't worry. Christ died for sinners. You just have to be repentant like the Good Thief.

---Leslie if Christians are judged on all the signs you say they are judged on after death I think we're in a real pickle, all headed to hell. If however Christians are judged on their rewards, but are forgiven of the things they said, did, and thought in their lifetime then maybe we'll be in good shape. Good shape here meaning going to heaven.

The Bible says that ALL people will face judgement, INCLUDING Christians. Christians will face judgement on what they did, said, and thought in their lifetime. They will also be judged on how they treated Israel and the Jews.

There ia a referencw in 2 Xorinthians to the fact that we will onw day face the judgement of Christ. Yet the word used here is important, as it is a technical term.
The word is "bhema", and is specifically the judges seat in games. The use is that of judgement of obedience to the rules, not damnation.

This means that the souls of all that have part in this first resurrection in Christ Jesus, walking not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, are now no longer under condemnation (Romans 8:1).
But remember a person is not saved just because they call themselves Christian?
All go before God and Those that had part in the first resurrection (Rev.20:6) are quickened (Rev.19:7-9).

I don't understand why you quote the verse and then raise the possibility that it isn't saying what it says. Just curious.
---Jonathan_Hartley on 2/22/08|
Jesus said, "For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." (Matt.7:2) We are not off the hook just because we are Christians.
---InimicusStultitiae on 2/22/08|
You better know it. If you are born-again to heaven you shall go to await the Great Judgment day where all the rewards with be handed out to us. The unbelievers will face God on this day to be handed their sentence to everlasting fires of Hell. If you are saved you make it to heaven. Thank God. And that's the truth, because the road to heaven is paved with Blood, Sweat, and Tears.

Christians will be judges By God the Father as to how well they conformed to His preordained plan for their lives.
---notlaw99 on 2/22/08|
That's the way I understand it. Our penalty has been paid so we don't have to pay. This is a good thing or else we would all be in a big pile of trouble.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit" (Romans 8:1)
"Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires." (Rom. 6:12)
"....you are slaves to the one whom you obey whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? (Rom. 6:16).
Clear. Sin is very destructive! Christians must resist sin!

Everyone will see the Great White Throne of Judgment.
One at a time, before the throne of God.
---Cindy on 2/21/08|
Yes. The bible says that we will appear before the judgement seat of Christ to give an account for every work done in this body. It's not a condemnation judgement & only the church is involved in it. (2Corinthians 5:10)
Jesus was judged, condemned, & then justified for our sake so that we don't have to face condemnation/eternal damnation.
---Rickey on 2/21/08|
Only if that Christian keep on believing and hearing Jesus words. The Greek words "believeth" (pisteuo) and "heareth" used by the Apostles John denote "continuous believing [and] hearing"
Thereby, Jesus was not teaching that a past moment of faith will ensure a person salvation. The person must have a living and active faith.
If a Christian sin and do not confess and continue in the world of flesh (Gal 5:6-8, 1 John 1:9), then they face condemnation.
---Ramon on 2/21/08|
If a person truly believes in the TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, His DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURECTION,FOR OUR SINS, they will not face the JUDGEMENT, because they are covered by THE SACRIFICIAL BLOOD OF CHRIST JESUS.

Remember we are SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH, and by the finished work of CHRIST. Galatians 2:15-21.
