What is the Judgment seat of Christ?
When Christ returns at the end of the Great tribulation,
He will separate the sheep (the righteous) from the goats (the wicked).
The believers, dead and alive (asleep and awake), will be
raised up to meet him in the clouds.
Those who are left on the Earth will experience great
suffering when he pours out the Seven Bowls of His wrath.
The believers are saved by faith but are rewarded
according to the things that they have done while in the body.
At the Judgment seat of Christ, the believers will
be judged for the things that they have done while in the body and they
will be rewarded accordingly during their millennial reign with Christ.
Will those who are still alive at the coming of the Lord
precede those who have fallen asleep?
No. Those who have fallen asleep in Christ will be
Where will the believers meet with the Lord?
In the clouds.
Does everybody get to meet with the Lord?
No, only the believers are raised to meet with him
in the clouds.
What happens to those who are not saved?
Those who are not saved will go away to eternal
punishment, but the righteous will inherit eternal life.
Where and when do the wicked get judged?
They will either suffer God's wrath if they are on the
earth, or they will be tormented in Hades until the end of the millennium.
Then at the end of the millennium, they will be raised to stand before God
at the Great White Throne. They will be judged according to what they have
done and thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the second death.
Who are the Sheep and the Goats? Matt
The sheep are people blessed by the Father and chosen before the foundation of the Earth.
They do not appear to be of the same fold as Christians but they showed kindness
to God's people during the Great Tribulation. This might include people of
other religions who help Christians during the Great Tribulation.
The Goats are wicked people who have rejected the gospel. They do not love God and were not chosen before
the foundation of the Earth. They had no compassion for God's people
during the Great Tribulation and did not help them.
What happens to the Sheep?
The Sheep receive the inheritance, the kingdom prepared
for them since the creation of the world and go on to eternal life. Their
inheritance may be different to Christians who inherit the New Jerusalem.
The Sheep may live eternally as the Nations in the New Heaven and Earth.
What happens to the Goats?
They will go away to eternal punishment.
