“…for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God…each of us shall give account of himself to God.” (Romans 14:10,12)
If you have swallowed religious Christianity’s teaching on these verses then you would be nervous or afraid.
Some fancy religious people teach that this judgment seat is called “The Bema Seat”. Does this make it more serious – therefore pay attention. Of course it sounds more spiritual (a little tongue in cheek there).
Does God want us to be nervous or afraid? Does He get some kind of a perverted kick out of seeing us squirm or be uncertain about His love?
NO!!! A thousand times NO!
God has such a high positive and uplifting opinion about us. This is what these passages confirm.
This video will explain the grace-filled words about His wonderful judgment seat. You are meant to be close beside it – not standing in front of it quivering in your boots!
- Do not ever forget that Jesus came to save the world, not judge it. And do not ever forget that the Father judges no one. (Jn 12:47, 5:22, 8:15, 3:17)
- As you get more and more revelation of who God says you are and has always said you are – before the beginning – you will relish the judgment seat because its pronouncement is an eternal declaration of your worth, significance, and beauty.
- When you begin to believe the truth, when your confession is about who He says you really are – then you truly will be filled with all joy and peace. Now who wouldn’t want that?
