Jesus Christ Will Return To Judge the Whole World
Adventure 12: God's Plan for the Future
What will happen when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to Earth?
When the Lord Jesus Christ returns to Earth, He will judge everyone, both the living and the dead. 2 Timothy 4:1 – I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom.
This Truth Makes
When Christ returns, He will judge all people from every nation and every time. Christ’s will judge on two separate occasions:
He will reward believers according to their good works (at the “Judgment Seat of Christ).
He will punish unbelievers according to their failures (at the “Great White Throne Judgment”).
It is important to understand that all those appearing at the “Judgment Seat of Christ” have already been granted eternal
life. The purpose of that judgment is not to determine whether they will enter heaven or not, because they are already united with Christ and have His righteousness. When Christ judges unbelievers, it is a different judgment, called the “Great White Throne Judgment.” In the next two missions, you will learn the differences between these two judgments.
