  5. Oh i get it . i knew some orthodx friends who said you get resurrected 3 days after dying or something .. so judgment must happen somewhere in there . interesting anyway . when people talk about that one i think of rapture discourse in The letters or the first resurrection in revelation .

    but then again .. aren't we being judged now? cuz peter said .. something about judgment beginning with the house of God . hm infitiely interesting . sure i'll never figure it out .

    love bless .
  6. Wow..... thanks Spinning . Now I learned something new .... Blessings.
  7. The "Judgement Seat of Christ" and the "Bema Judgement" are the same thing. It is for the Children of God not the un-saved.

    Romans 14:10-12 says, “For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat…so then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Second Corinthians 5:10 tells us, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” In the context, it is clear that both scriptures are referring to Christians, not unbelievers. 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 Christ’s 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. Yes, as the Bible says, we will have to give an account of ourselves. Part of this is surely answering for the sins we committed. However, that is not going to be the primary focus of the judgment seat of Christ.

    At the judgment seat of Christ, believers are rewarded based on how faithfully they served Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). Some of the things we might be judged on are how well we obeyed the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), how victorious we were over sin (Romans 6:1-4), and how well we controlled our tongues (James 3:1-9). The Bible speaks of believers receiving crowns for different things based on how faithfully they served Christ (1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5). The various crowns are described in 2 Timothy 2:5, 2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, 1 Peter 5:4, and Revelation 2:10. James 1:12 is a good summary of how we should think about the judgment seat of Christ: “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

    In the Greek # 968, Bema - Judgment seat, set (foot) on throne.

    God bless,

  8. very enlightening, thank you!
  9. Reminds me of a Petra song:

  10. Wow, I guess I better get moving... Making stuff out of gold and costly stones takes a long time and I'm kinda behind, lol
  11. Actually, it's best to let God do it.

    Let the Spirit work through you. Be an open conduit.

  12. Love it!!! Thanks for sharing "Hismanysongs"
