Eternal Judgment
---------------------------------------------------------


There are many teachings on what I am going to discuss on this page, which many refer to as The Bema of Christ or as the Judgment Seat of Christ, found even on the internet.

2 Cor 5: MKJV
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive the things done through the body, according to that which he has done, whether good or bad.


The 1st thing to understand is God will separate the church.

Ezek 34 NKJV
17 "And as for you, O My flock, thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats.

2 Tim 2: (MKJV)
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.
21 Therefore if anyone purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honor, sanctified and useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.


There will be some who will be fit for the Kingdom and some who are outside, as discussed here:


The Gospel of The Kingdom

Those christians who live in sin or selfishness, will be outside the Kingdom (outside New Jerusalem) and I discuss this in more detail here:

Outer Darkness Part 2

It may be hard to believe, but scripture tells us there are people outside the city of heaven. It tells us they were sinners but were saved. It also tells us that these nations of people need healing. Why would a saved resurrected person need healing? Because he has been cleansed by the fire of God which has burned out the junk that he didn't remove himself. Now that emptiness is no longer filled by a motivation of sin, because sin has been removed. Nor can it be filled by repentance. After death there is no repentance:

Rev 22:
11: He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.


To the degree that you fill your life with Christ on the earth, is the degree you will have of Him there. But there will be no more sin or selfishness in the new earth. However, it is still painful, for afterwards, throughout eternity some (or all) of those christians, will use the leaves of the Tree of Life for medicine or to fill the empty places that they did not give to Christ, which were filled with sin or selfishness and then emptied by fire.

God hates dead works, Babylonian service, "sacramental" service, liturgical service, and such as I discuss here:


The 2 & half Tribes that didn't Cross Over

Isa 1:
13: Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14: Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.


We need to repent of such things and such service. Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life, there is no other way to the Father and heaven!

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

There is even more understood by learning about the Outer Darkness.

Where does the phrase "Outer Darkness" come from? It is mentioned 3 times in the Bible: Math 8:12, Math 22:13, Math 25:30.

I discuss the details of the Outer darkness here:


Outer Darkness

The phrase "Outer Darkness" is sometimes equated with the word "Gehenna" which is often translated as Hell or Hades.

Everyone must go through fire, if we do not experience the Baptism of Fire here on earth we will get it afterwards. We are to deny ourselves and follow Christ:

Math 16: MKJV
25 For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever desires to lose his life for My sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?


So if you pursue the life of the flesh, your fleshly appetites will be destroyed in judgment, and you will suffer loss (loss of rewards discussed later and the loss of those things which are not found in heaven which one desired). If you fill yourself now, you will be emptied there. Our lives are to be filled with Christ, not with soulish endeavors or fleshly lusts.

Let's look at this unfaithful believer (the following scripture will be used a few times in this page, please make note of it):

Math 7:
21: Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.


These carnal christians will keep their salvation but as though through fire:

1 Cor 3:
15: If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.


1 Peter 4:18 And also, "If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners?"

Peter speaks of those in the Outer Darkness as they are barely saved.

 

Mark 9: MKJV
49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
 
Luke 14: NKJV
34 "Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?
35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" 
 

It is the unbelievers and demons who will recieve the wrath in full measure:

Rev 14:
10 he also will drink of the wine of the anger of God, having been mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented by fire and brimstone before the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.

They will inhabit the new earth outside New Jerusalem the city of heaven. Through loss and a salting of fire, these folks will be emptied of these unsanctified "fillers". For the new creation will not have anything outside of Christ. So, the unholy appetites from filling their lives with unholy things, will be emptied out there. Since they did not completely fill their hunger with Christ, but with things not sanctified, and since the time of repentance is over, God in His graciousness has given a method to heal these people that will judge them and/or the emptiness it will leave them in:

Rev 22:
2: ...the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.


When these believers are emptied of their "junk", they will once again have that "hunger" in them, but are unable to repent and become more holy.


Luke 6: MKJV
21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
25 Woe to you who are full! For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep.


John 6: MKJV
35 And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes on Me shall never thirst. 


Some may claim that this judgment is for the unbelievers, if so, why would God give them leaves for healing when they are going to burn forever? 

While this page is discussing Eternal Judgment, much of the judgment on the unfaithful believers is discussed in more detail here:


The Resurrection

Some may think I am discussing the Unforgivable Sin, but this is not the blaspheme of the Holy Spirit. I discuss that here:

The Unforgivable Sin and Concerning OSAS

No, this sin, causes one to lose the right to enter into New Jerusalem.

There seems to be 2 kinds of judgment for Christians, as described earlier God will judge between the sheep and sheep. Those who are not Born Again or the equivalent of being in the Lamb's Book of Life and not being allowed in New Jerusalem, their judgment is the loss of their soulish desires and being thrown out the City. Before discussing the Born Again Christian judgment lets study more about this other Christian found outside the City.

One of the best ways I have found to describe the difference, is like the difference between a baby in the womb vs a baby which is born. And so I describe in much more detail these kind of people here:


Believing vs. Being Born Again

I was such a believer once. Somewhere about the age of 8 years old, I believed in the work of Jesus. I went to a Lutheran church which taught me a lot of the Bible, but I was given no teachings that helped my faith grow. Or I failed to see them. Eventually, my faith became bankrupt as a teenager. You can read my story here:

My Personal Testimony

This kind of believer is full of carnality. I had scripture, and so many of these may have scripture too, but it will be taken from them, including any false doctrines, which killed their faith, many of which may be teachings from Jezebel. But these folk probably have a lack of teaching which encourages sin, rather than bad teaching that allows sin. These kind of christians will not be raptured at the 1st rapture. To learn more about furthering your faith and getting raptured:

I believe a major portion of the saved nations are these type of "christians". But Jesus will save them:

John 6: MKJV
39 And this is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all which He has given Me I should lose nothing but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes on Him should have everlasting life. And I will raise him up at the last day.


They feed on their lusts and sin, and defend themselves with teachings from Balaam, the Nicolaitans, or Jezebel.

Rev 2: MKJV
14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the teachings of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication.
15 So you also have those who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
20 But I have a few things against you because you allow that woman Jezebel to teach, she saying herself to be a prophetess, and to cause My servants to go astray, and to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices.


2 Tim 4: MKJV
3 For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.
4 And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths.


It is very difficult to reach these folk, because they have closed their ears and hardened their hearts. The best thing I can say to them is to ask: are you prepared for the Lord's coming? If they don't repent of Jezebel, they will be left behind:

Rev 2:22: Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.


I discuss both of the above type of unprepared christians in more detail here:

The 2 & a Half Tribes that didn't Cross Over

Are You Prepared for the 2nd Coming? If not  Click here 

But we have a choice, we can be humble and be broken now instead.

Math 21: MKJV
44 And he who falls on this Stone shall be broken, but on whomever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.


Heb 12:
1: ... let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith...
3: For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, unless you be wearied and faint in your minds.
4: You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

5: And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6: For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives.
7: If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not?
8: But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons.


As I shared at the beginning of this page:

2 Tim 2: (MKJV)
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.
21 Therefore if anyone purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honor, sanctified and useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.


I believe I am at most, a 60 fold manifesting believer. We will no longer be held by the cares of the world, tempted by sin, nor deceived by bad doctrine. We will also have higher examples to follow and see with our very eyes. But, the overcoming christian shouldn't fear judgment. Unless it is this fear:

Philp 2:12 NKJV
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;


If you would like to learn more about saving the soul:

But God say's judgment begins in the house of the Lord:

1 Peter 4: NKJV
17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?


2 Cor 5: MKJV
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive the things done through the body, according to that which he has done, whether good or bad.


Other scriptures to consider:

Math 7:2

NIV: For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
NLT:...The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.


Then there is this:

Math 6: MKJV
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you;
15 but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.


In the degree of mercy we give, we will receive. This is shown in Math 18:23-35.

Some may say, "He promises to give anything we ask, to those who love Him.", thinking they can ask for a lesser judgment.

My reply to this:

 
James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

It is a lust, to try and live less purely and weasel out of the judgment. In fact, this very idea is part of the teaching of Jezebel, of which will cause a believer to miss the rapture. Many unbelievers have this problem, but I think many catholics and other liberal christians have this problem as well. Many protestants think they're going to get a blanket forgiveness without true repentance. Many catholics take advantage of their system to sin and go confess. It's an abuse of the system, and Rome itself doesn't teach it, but their system causes it. I won't go further here, this isn't about catholics. There are extreme right wing protestant christians who think everyone will get saved. This also leads to lusting after sin without repenting. It is this very type of lusting that may keep a believer from the rapture. See here:
Are You Prepared for the 2nd Coming? 


I also discuss the error of Universalism (everyone is to be saved) here:

Universalism

There is one final aspect I wish to discuss. As I eluded to earlier, some people think when we get to heaven we will be perfect. Hopefully, I have already shown this to be wrong. It is true we will obtain a perfect body at the rapture! But our soul remains the same. That's why we must work out the salvation of our soul after being spiritually saved while alive on Earth!

Some may think the imperfect can't even be allowed in heaven. They fail to realize that satan still has access to heaven until he is thrown out!


Re 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.


Notice satan is called the "accuser" in verse 10, that is why Jesus is our mediator at the right hand of God!

1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

But just as God will only tolerate satan's access to heaven for so long; so also, will the unfaithful believers have to be dealt with. They can't remain filled with self, throughout eternity.

Math 21: MKJV
44 And he who falls on this Stone shall be broken, but on whomever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.


The judgment of God is a very meaty teaching for us, even me, but in reality it should only be milk. It is a foundational principle of Christ, and sadly was lost to the church and is not fully dug out and developed. I can find very few others which discuss this in depth. Though there are some, and many have error in it, and I have had to turn to critics to find some of the flaws. But many critics toss out the whole teaching which is a shame because there is so much truth here from scripture. And rather than toss it out and give up on it, we should dig it out and develop our understanding of God and His ways.

There are some scriptures that seem to point out that we may be judged for certain things. I believe these sins will be judged by those who live in these sins continually. For those who don't repent. Let's look at these scriptures:

Idle Words:


Math 12:36 But I say to you that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they shall give account of it in the day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.


We can repent of our harsh words and even apologize to others to avoid this. Confession forgives us our sins. Many people, including my own family think I go overboard by not using certain words and phrases. This is why. Not only do I avoid cursing, I also avoid Euphemisms. Darn for damn and so on.


Judging others wrongly:

Rom 14 (I recommend the whole chapter, but some samples...):

1 ¶ And receive him who is weak in the faith, but not to judgments of your thoughts.
3 Do not let him who eats despise him who does not eat; and do not let him who does not eat judge him who eats, for God has received him.
4 Who are you that judges another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. But he will stand, for God is able to make him stand.

5 One indeed esteems a day above another day; and another esteems every day alike . Let each one be fully assured in his own mind.
6 He who regards the day regards it to the Lord; and he not regarding the day, does not regard it to the Lord. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, does not eat to the Lord, and gives God thanks.
10 But why do you judge your brother? Or also why do you despise your brother? For all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
12 So then each one of us will give account concerning himself to God.


Luke 6: NKJV
37 "Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.


Luke 6:37 may be one of the most misinterpreted scriptures ever. This isn't about not judging others, but judging them wrongly. I mentioned this above and have a link that discusses it further:

Two Kinds of Judging

There may be others I haven't listed, but these speak to me and am sharing these. I do not think Jesus will hold these sins against them, but since they did not repent of them, they need to be cleaned of them. Thus they will have access to eternity and God's love and grace.

Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more.

I propose another illustration of this event, Jesus described the alabaster box of ointment I discuss here:

Brokeness

For those that are part of the Bride of Christ, we have no fear of judgment. We confess our sins and they are forgiven. These judgments are not about sin, for even those who go to the Lake of Fire have had their sins forgiven, but are not saved because they have rejected Christ. The judgment for the christian not born again is not about their sins, its about them not leaving Egypt and crossing the Jordan river. As I discuss here:

Believing vs Being Born Again

So how is all of this going to happen? First it is going to start with God raising the dead in Christ. That is those Christians who have died already, from all the church age, being raised up in new glorified bodies.

1 Thess 4:16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first.

Right after this, those Christians who have been prepared, will be raptured and meet them in the air, being given glorified bodies as well.

Not all living believers will be raptured, see here:


Are you prepared for the Blessed Hope?

This will happen in a blink of an eye:

1 Cor 15:52 in a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet. For a trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed.

At this point I believe the Lord will take us to heaven. Where exactly will Judgement take place? When will it happen? The Bible says the Bride will be made ready and the Lord will separate the believers.


Ezek 34 NKJV
17 "And as for you, O My flock, thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats.


2 Tim 2: (MKJV)
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.
21 Therefore if anyone purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honor, sanctified and useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.


As for the timing. It is found here:

Rev 11:18 And the nations were full of wrath, and Your wrath came, and the time of the judging of the dead, and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to the ones fearing Your name, to the small and to the great, and to destroy those destroying the earth.

So we see this occur, about halfway through Revelations and perhaps the Tribulation. Seeing the timing of this is very helpful!)

The judgment of the unfaithful christians will be outside New Jerusalem. But for teh faithful, it will be most likely at the Throne Room.

Here is the scripture of when and how this will occur:

Revelation 14 
7 saying with a great voice, Fear God and give glory to Him! For the hour of His judgment has come. And worship Him who made the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And another angel followed, saying, The great city, Babylon, has fallen, has fallen; because of the wine of the anger of her fornication; she has made all nations to drink.
9 And a third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark in his forehead or in his hand,
10 he also will drink of the wine of the anger of God, having been mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented by fire and brimstone before the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.
11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day or night, those who worship the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.
13 ś And I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they shall rest from their labors, and their works follow them.

(I believe verse 13 eludes to the idea there will be no more carnal christians after this point, thus why judgment can occur)
14 And I looked, and behold, a white cloud. And on the cloud sat one like the Son of man, having a golden crown on His head, and a sharp sickle in His hand.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying in a great voice to Him sitting on the cloud, Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth was dried.
16 And He sitting on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came out of the temple in Heaven, also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had authority over fire. And he spoke with a great cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the anger of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, for the space of a thousand, six hundred stadia.

I also recommend all of the book of Lamentations, but will quote some here:

Lamentations 1 
1 ¶ How alone sits the city that was full of people! She has become like a widow, once great among the nations, a noblewoman among the nations, but now has become a tribute-payer.
3 Judah went into captivity because of affliction, and from great slavery. She dwells among the nations; she finds no rest; all her pursuers have overtaken her between the narrows.
4 The roads of Zion mourn without any going to the appointed feasts. All her gates are deserted; her priests sigh; her virgins are afflicted, and she is in bitterness.
5 Her enemies have become as chief; her haters are at ease; for the LORD has afflicted her for the multitude of her sins. Her children have gone, captive before the enemy.
6 And from the daughter of Zion all her beauty has departed. Her rulers have become like bucks: they find no pasture, and they have gone without strength before the pursuer.
In the days of her affliction and her wandering Jerusalem remembered all her desirable things from previous days; when her people fell into the hand of the foe; and there is no ally for her. The foes saw her; they laughed at her annihilation.
8 Jerusalem has grievously sinned, therefore she has been removed. All knowing her despise her because they saw her nakedness; yea, she sighs and turns backward.
9 Her uncleanness is in her skirts; she did not remember her end, and has gone down astoundingly. There is no comforter for her. O LORD, behold my affliction, for the enemy has magnified himself .
12 ¶ Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Behold and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which is done to me, with which the LORD has afflicted me in the day of His fierce anger.
13 From above He has sent fire into my bones and it has laid them low. He has spread a net for my feet; He has turned me back; He has made me amazed and faint all the day.
14 The yoke of my transgressions is bound by His hand; they intertwine; they rise on my neck. He has made my strength to falter; the LORD has delivered me into their hands. I am not able to rise up.
15 The LORD has trampled all my mighty ones in my midst; He has called a gathering against me to crush my young men. The LORD has trod the virgin daughter of Judah, as in a winepress.
18 The LORD is righteous, for I have rebelled against His command. I beseech you, all peoples, hear and behold my sorrow. My virgins and my young men went into exile.
19 I called for my lovers, but they deceived me; my priests and my elders expired in the city while they sought food for them to bring back their life.
20 Behold, O LORD, for I am in trouble; my inward parts ferment; my heart is turned within me, for I have grievously rebelled. On the outside the sword bereaves; in the house it isas death.


Chap 2:
14 Your prophets have seen false and foolish things for you, and they have not uncovered your iniquity, to turn away your captivity; but they have seen false oracles and seductions for you.
15 All who pass by clap their hands at you; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying , Is this the city which they called the perfection of beauty, the joy of the whole earth?


So as you can see, this judgment is the winepress of God. His people are the grapes, we are of the vine, but many grapes have not sought out death to self to become wine.

I discuss this Judgment in the context of the Resurrection in some more detail here:

The Resurrection

But the Bema Seat judgment will probably begin shortly after the rapture. It is called the Bema Seat because in Rom 14:10 and 2 Cor 2:5:10 we see the words "Judgement seat of Christ", in Greek this is where the word bema comes from and it means a step, a raised platform, a tribune, where a judge sits. But this type of judgment is more like the Olympics where rewards are given for winning and doing well. Please see other pages for more on this if you like.

Now in Matt 25 we will see Jesus separate the sheep from the goats, the sheep being called to his right. But at this judgment there are no goats. But there will be a separation. As Jesus calls those forward to be given awards, there will left those standing who have none.

Math 10:32 Then everyone who shall confess Me before men, I will confess him before My Father who is in Heaven.
33 But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in Heaven.


Remember this:

...And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants...cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

This gnashing of teeth is the regret of not doing more for the Lord, His way, giving one's life to Him.

Now remember, these are Christians with new bodies, but now they have been removed from sin, which may have had a big part of their lives. There are no more places of sin, no more unbelievers tempting them, thus they no longer can lean on any bad habits or sin when things are not going well. Thus the need for the leaves of the Tree of Life.


Those who have been awarded will be given garments of white, and will return to the Earth with the Lord when He faces the anti-christ and his armies.

Rev 19:7 ... For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared herself.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white. For the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints.
9 And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of God.
11 ¶ And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war.
14 And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.


It is thus, how I believe the Bema Seat will occur.

At the very bottom of this page is a video I am adding which discusses the things I shared here. The video discusses the Judgment Seat of Christ and the rewards given. Check it out!
