There are two end times judgments:

These two are not synonymous.  They are different events.  One is for Christians and one is for non-Christians.  Jesus Christ presides over one and The Ancient of Days/the Judge of the universe presides over the other.

Each of these judgements has only one destiny for those standing in judgment.  As you will see you DO NOT want to be standing in front of the Great White Throne at this point.

Again, let's start with the key Scripture passage for this End Times event...

Revelation 20:11-15

"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them [making way for the New Heaven and New Earth...there is no place for the old now!]. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."

(You can read the whole chapter of Revelation 20 here if you like.)

The dead are raised and judged

This is the second resurrection.  The first one already happened in Revelation 14 - the Rapture.  All Christians were raptured together, the living and the dead.  Those in this second resurrection are all non-Christians...

Revelation 20:5,6

"The rest of the dead [after all the non-Christians are taken up] did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection [talking of the Rapture]. 6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years."

So, the non-Christians are judged according to their deeds.  All their sin is still in blackening there spirit, because they did not repent and allow the Lamb of God (Jesus Christ) to wash it all away.  I truly hope you are not in this state.

Every single sin was written down in these books and it is the day of reckoning.  There will be no exceptions and good works do not wash away bad ones.  Only the blood of Jesus can do that.

Only one Way to have your name written in the Book of Life

  • Repent of your personal sin (shown by the 10 Commandments)
  • Understand Jesus' substitutionary death.  If we accept Him personally and allow Him to be Lord of our lives, what He did on the cross was take the punishment for our sins upon Himself!
  • Believe that Jesus was raised from the dead once for all.  We have a victorious Savior who conquered even death for us!

Death and Hades are thrown into the Lake of Fire

Death, hell (Hades), and all non-Christians will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.  This is why Christians are to passionately share the Gospel...that's another website on its own.

I Corinthians 15:26

"The last enemy that will be abolished is death."


Another Scripture for the Great White Throne Judgment

Matthew 25:31-46 - Jesus paints a big picture of the Great White Throne Judgment in this portion of the Olivet Discourse.

To understand more clearly how The Great White Throne Judgment fits in with the rest of the End Times Chronology you can fill in a chronology or follow along on the laminated version as you read my book...

Overwhelmed by all the theories about the End Times?  Whose end times prophecy is right?

Are the books of Daniel and Revelation confusing to you?

Understanding the End Times Chronology which God gave us will solve each of these problems for you.  It took me over 2 years to solve these problems for myself and my family.  Now you can do it in the time it takes to read this book - The End Times: What You Need to Know and Why
