Will all see God?

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by James B, Apr 10, 2008.

  1. Will all see God?

    When a non-believer dies, do they go straight to Hell, or do they stand before God first and then go to Hell?

    Also, when the Lord returns and all eyes will see, does this include those who are already dead who are in Hell? Will they come out of Hell to witness it?

    Confused? :confused:

    Where are the dead now? Well, it says in 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

    But what of those who do not know Jesus? I dunno...I have my own theory, but won't discuss it since it is only my theory, and I have no Biblical back up.

    This is Christs return....Revelation 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

    KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS

    This is AFTER the return of Christ...Revelation 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

    Hope this helps!
     
  3. All will face Him on the judgment day:

    Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
    Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
    Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
     

  4. Not only will each of us have to face God in judgment..... Every knee shall bow before Christ!!!

    [​IMG]

    Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

     
  5. The non believer will never see God, they may be situated in the Holy Father's presence but in their shame they will feel unworthy to gaze upon him.
     
  6. Hmmm- I will have to research that one.
     
  7. All non-believers are in hell--awaiting the final judgment at the Great White Throne. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Phil. 2:10,11
