The White Throne Judgement vs The Judgement Seat Of Christ

Many Christians are unaware of the distinctions between the Great White Throne judgment and Christ's judgment seat. They will both occur at the end of the world, and Christians should be aware of both of these themes. They must comprehend this concept as part of their eternal preparation and as a matter of basic knowledge. However, we shall describe the two events in different ways.

The Great White Throne Judgement

This is described in Revelation 20 as a judgment for the dead and sinners. This judgment will occur after Christ's Millennial rule, when the earth, atmosphere, and universe will be consumed by fire. "With a shout, the sky will vanish, the elements will be destroyed by great heat, and the earth and its works will be consumed" (2 Peter 3:10). In Revelation 20:12, the Bible says:

"And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

“The dead” are those who rejected salvation through Jesus Christ, so they must pay for their own sins for all eternity.

The Judgment Seat of Christ.

In 2 Corinthians 5: 10, the Bible says:

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."Their names are not inscribed in the Book of Life, which is opened to indicate this (Rev. 20:15). Other books include records of all their sins, which are used to determine their level of agony based on the number and character of their transgressions. People who have been saved will get varying degrees of rewards in heaven, while those who have been lost will face varying degrees of punishment in the lake of fire.

This is a judgment of those who have been saved. It is not a judgment of our misdeeds, but rather a review of our fidelity during our earthly lives in order to determine our everlasting rewards and duties. Christ's seat, known as the "bema," will be in the heavenly realms. Christians are not held accountable for their sins. The Christian has been freed from the penalty of sin because of Jesus Christ's salvation.

However, as earthly saints, we will not face the white throne judgment, but rather get our benefits at Christ's judgment seat. The believers who triumphed over the Antichrist will be judged at the white throne judgment.
