THE CRUCIAL JUDGMENTS


Memory Verse: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” – Hebrews 9:27


BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 20:11-15


INTRODUCTION:
Judgment is one of the common destinies awaiting all men (Hebrews 9:7). Believers and unbelievers, the young and old, the rich and poor, will all face judgment. The judgment will not be corporate but personal. As there is more than one resurrection, there is more than one judgment. Some of the judgments the Bible speaks about include the believers’ selfjudgment at the communion table (1Corinthians 11:29-31), the judgment of the believers at the judgment seat of Christ (2Corinthians 5:10), the judgment of the nations (Matthew 25:32) and the judgment of the unsaved at the Great White Throne (Revelations 20:11). In this lesson, our focus is on the judgment of the believers and the judgment of the unsaved.
— LESSON OUTLINES —–


1. THE JUDGMENT OF THE SAINTS

2. THE JUDGMENT OF THE SINNERS


THE JUDGMENT OF THE SAINTS
Believers will no longer be judged for sin, as long as they do not go back to sin. The believers’ sins, which have been repented of and forsaken, have been judged in Christ at Calvary (Romans 8:1). However, there is a judgment the believers must go through. This is the judgment of the believers’ works for the purpose of rewards (Matthew 16: 27).
 The focus of the judgment: 
The quality of work, the motive behind every work and the level of faithfulness (1Corinthians 3:13; 2Timothy 2:20).
 The candidates for the judgment: 
The resurrected “dead in Christ” and the living who remain in Christ when He comes at rapture (1Thess. 4:16-17).
 The place of the judgment: 
The judgment seat of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:10)
 The time for the judgment: 
After Christ’s coming at rapture, during the Marriage supper of the Lamb (Matthew 16:27; Revelations 19:9).
The result of the judgment:
(1). Rewards and crowns for the faithful (1Corinth 3:14; 2Timothy 4:7-8)

(2). Losses for those whose works lack the required divine quality (1 Corin 3:15).
THE JUDGMENT OF THE SINNERS
This is the final judgement that will climax the end of this age. The judgment of sinners is certain (Proverbs 11:21).
 The candidates for the judgment: 
Those whose names are not in the Book of life (Revelations 20:15. These include the abominable   (homosexuals, lesbians, etc.), all liars, sexually immoral, the friends of the world, idolaters, murderers, thieves etc   (Revelations 21:8).
 The place of the judgment: 
The great white throne. God, the impartial and all knowing God sits on the throne (Revelations 20:11).
 The time for the judgment: 
After the millennial (One thousand years), reign of Christ on earth (Revelations 20:5-6).
 The result of judgment: 
Sinners shall be cast into the lake of fire (Revelations 20:15; Psalm 9:17).
CONCLUSION
Earthly judgment can be influenced and compromised, divine judgment cannot. It is judgment in righteousness and truth. The judgment of both the saints and the sinners is certain (Galatians 6:7-8).
QUESTIONS
1. Mention some people who will face the great white throne judgment.

2. Will some be judged righteous at the great white throne judgment?
