Christians know about hell and heaven. But they do not know much about the white throne judgment, or the final judgment of God. Most Christians think that Satan takes people to hell, and Jesus Christ tries to rescue them from hell, that is from the hands of Satan. Some Christians think that God the Father tries to put sinners in hell, but Jesus Christ tries to get them out of hell. Preachers preach the same thing and they are very convincing. This is ignorance or deception. But the truth is that Jesus Christ is the one who sent people to hell and he is the one punishes them in hell. He will not rescue people from his own hands. Jesus Christ will be the judge and it is his judgment. Let us study the truth about the final judgment according to the word of God. We cannot escape eternal damnation by believing lies and fictions, but we must believe the truth.
The judgment of God is real. The main truth in the judgment is that Jesus Christ will be the judge. He will judge every one of us according to what we have done; and he will be the most righteous judge. He will show no partiality toward anyone. These are basics in his judgment. Romans 14:10 says: "...we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ." Before we see the details of judgment, now let us see what the churches teach about the judgment, hell, and heaven.
They are made up stories that are fictions and lies but are preached as truth. Let me explain what they say. God the Father is the judge and he sit on the white throne. In front of him stands a Christian, to be judged. One side Satan stands as public prosecutor, and Jesus Christ stands on the other side, as the defense attorney. Satan showed all sins of the Christian and demands eternal death sentence. Next is the turn of Jesus Christ, the defense attorney. He accepts that all allegations of Satan as truth. Then he said; but I died for him in his place, all his punishments are carried out by me on the cross, and so he must go free. And God the Father passed the verdict saying, "This man is free. The penalty for him is already paid in full. Case dismissed." So, the Christian goes free. According to this pattern of judgment, we will all go free, because Jesus carried all our sins, and he will save us all from hell. But this is a filthy cheap fiction or story of lie. Since most Christians commit sin, we identify ourselves with this sinner. The judge's decision makes us happy and his acquittal applies equally to us. Every sinning Christian is encouraged. But this is just fiction, story, and lie. Preachers preach such lies and deceive themselves and their congregation. None of these will change the truth of God. The wrath of Jesus Christ will be upon them.
In this story, God the Father is the judge, and Jesus Christ is the defense attorney. In truth; Jesus Christ will be the judge. He will be the most righteous judge, who judges by truth. He will not show any kind of favor to anybody in the judgment. John 5:22 says, "For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: … 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man." Acts 10:42, Romans 2:16, 2 Timothy 4:1, John 8:16, and Revelation 16:7 all say that Jesus Christ will be the judge. In Acts 10:34 Peter says, "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:" That is, he will show partiality to nobody. Romans 2:11, Ephesians 6:9, Colossians 3:35, James 2:1, and 1 Peter 1:17, all say that God will not be partial to anyone and he will do favor to none. But Christians preach unmerited favor, in life as well as in judgment. It is a ridiculous lie, but every Christian believe this lie, since it is very convincing.
In this fiction story, Satan is assigned the role of public prosecutor; and Jesus admits that whatever he said is true. It is nonsense. Jesus says in John 8:44 that Satan "abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." Further, he will no longer be around at the time of judgment, since he would be thrown into the lake of fire already. Revelation 20:10 says, And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." Satan and his battalion would be burning and being tormented at the time of judgment. This filthy fiction says that he was a public prosecutor at the judgment. Most Christians think that Satan is king in hell and he will punish Christians in hell. No, Satan will be punished in hell and he will be burned in the lake of fire for all his lies, deceptions, and all his rebellion.
The grand finale of this fake story is the verdict of God the Father: He says, "This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed." This is a comforting Christian cliché, but it is the lie of Satan, and it is preached in churches as truth. Most Christians accept this cliché, since we hear this idea repeatedly again and again in different forms.
The truth is this: All of us commit sin from our youth. We must be delivered (saved) from our sins. It is by receiving the grace of God, and by receiving grace upon grace. Matthew 1:21 says: "…thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." Romans 8 says: "13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 17) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together." So, if we are led of the Spirit of God, we will be delivered from sin and we will become the sons of God. If we are sons of God, we are heirs of God and we will inherit the kingdom of God. Then, the judgment will be the ceremony of our official adoption into the family of God in heaven. If we are converted and are babes and children, we will be comforted in paradise. So, judgment will be rejoicing. 1 Corinthians 15:54-57 say, we will become immortal, death will be swallowed up in victory, and we will proclaim "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?"
Heaven and hell are real places. Jesus Christ repeatedly taught about heaven and hell – in fact, he spoke about hell more than anyone else in scripture. Jesus confirms repeatedly that heaven, hell and the lake of fire are real. Revelation 20:14 says, "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." Hell is the holding place until the judgment; then hell will be thrown into 'the lake of fire'. So, you and I will spend eternity either in heaven or in the lake of fire. Knowing this, we will be wise if we find the truth about how to go to heaven. Anything short of the truth exposes us to the risk of eternal death. Falsely convincing ourselves that we are on our way to heaven is most dangerous of all lies. No amount of positive attitude or good love can be a substitute for the truth. If you obey the truth, you can be saved from the lake of fire.
Hebrews 5:9 says, "... he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;. 2 Thessalonians 1:7 when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:" So, God saves those who obey his commandments, and he will punish those who do not obey. Revelation 22:14 says: "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life,.." So, you will enter heaven, only if you obey his commandments. Matthew 28:20 says, "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:" Here, the gospel is to teach his commandments for us to obey.
Matthew 16:27 says: "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." Romans 2:6 says: "Who will render to every man according to his deeds:" So, Jesus Christ will reward everyone at the final judgment, according to our works. 2 Corinthians 5:10 says: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." The Lord Jesus Christ, the most righteous judge, will judge all people, according to what we have done. In Matthew 7:21 Jesus says: "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Our admission to heaven depends not by the praises of our mouth, but by doing the will of God. So, our inheritance will be according to the good works that we have done as we live in our body.
Christians think that final judgment is an 'acquittal' verdict at the judgment of God. No, it is a transfer to either heaven or hell. Jesus Christ says that if a person is sinning, he/she will face eternal death in hell. Salvation is an escape from sins. If we escape sin, we will do righteous works. Heaven and the glory will be given as rewards for our righteous works. Bottom line is that we must obey what Jesus Christ tells us to do for our salvation. But Christians are taught to say that they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, but they are taught not to obey his commandments, since they are works, and we are not saved by works. Jesus tells in Luke 6:46, "why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" We must do what he tells us to do for our salvation.
Romans 6:18 says: "Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." These righteous people will be rewarded for their righteous works. Unsaved people, who will not do righteousness, but they commit sins, will have their part in the lake of fire. "Revelation 21:7) He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 22:12) And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 14) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." The judgment will be a reward ceremony to righteous people for their righteous works; but it will be a punishment sentencing for all others for their unrighteous works.
Revelation 3:5 says: "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. Revelation 20 says: "11) …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. 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. 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." So, final judgment will be by the righteous Judge; the Lord Jesus Christ. The judgment will be according to the information in the books. One set of books contains the works done by both good and bad people. Another book is called book of life, with the names of those who did good works. Everybody will be judged according to what they have done. Verse 15 says: "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 21:27 says: "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life." Revelation 22:19 says: "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." Exodus 32:33 says: "And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book." If a person’s name is not in this book, that person will be thrown into the lake of fire. The books will be opened, and they are the final word; there will be no witnesses to hear in this case. Names of sinning people are blotted out of the book of life. Malachi 3 says: "16) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17) And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him." If we fear God, we may have fellowship with other believers; God will also be with us and we will belong to him. We will be his precious jewels. We will be his Sons, who will love our Father and serve our great God throughout eternity.
