Revelation 20:12 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.
“According to Our Deeds” Is A Thematic in Scripture
Ezekiel 24:14 “I, the Lord, have spoken; it is coming and I shall act. I shall not relent, and I shall not pity, and I shall not be sorry; according to your ways and according to your deeds I shall judge you,” declares the Lord God.
The Lord Jesus Christ Affirms It
Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. Revelation 22:12
It is Confirmed by The Apostles
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2nd Corinthians 5:10
All Of Church History Will Be Revisited
For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1st Peter 4:17
Every Individual Christian’s Work Will Be Revealed
No one can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, Jesus Christ. If any one builds upon the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and fire will test the quality of each one’s work. If anyone’s work which they have built upon it remains, they shall receive a reward. If any one’s work is burned up, they shall suffer loss; but they themselves shall be saved, yet so as through fire. 1 Cor 3:11-15
All of Our Spoken Words will be Reviewed
I say to you, that every careless word that men shall speak, they shall render account for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. Mt.12:36-37
God’s Future & Final Judgment Is a Central Doctrine of the Bible
Acts 17:31 He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.
Romans 2:16 …according to the gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.
Jesus Is The Authority In Final Judgment
Not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment. John 5:26-29
Our Judgment Fell Upon Christ
Isaiah 53:6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.
He Bore The Sin That Is In You to Give to You His Sinlessness
2nd Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
