Skip to comments.Front And Center at the Judgment Seat

There I stood in the center of the great heavenly arena. Seats wrapped around me in a large horseshoe shape. They rose from the floor where I stood to an enormously great height. Directly in front of me was the judgment seat of Christ.
All of the saints were taking their places. Seating was assigned from least at the top to greatest at courtside. Miraculously I was able to recognize all of the faces present. Immediately to my left on the bottom row was Paul. Seated with him was Stephen. They greeted one another and chuckled like a couple of old college chums. Paul then looked to me, smiled gently and gave an approving nod. Despite his support, I was beginning to feel quite uneasy about what lay ahead.

Randy, thank you for this awesome blog. I found it very uplifting.
Hate to be negative, for there is much positive in this fiction - but that’s what it is - fiction.
Yes, I believe our sins are washed away by the shed blood of our Lord & Savior, and yes, it appears that the judgment seat of Christ - before which we all will one day stand - is a place of reward for the believer for works that were born of the Holy Spirit and a “burning up” of all that was not of Christ in the believer’s life. (I Corin. 3:12 - 15).
But the part about “here’s what COULD have happened IF you.....” is outside the concepts found in scripture. God never deals in hypotheticals. Or, if so, only in the most general way.
For one thing, the possibilities offered by considering hypotheticals are endless and infinite. Secondly, considering them leaves out the huge issue of the sovereignty of God.
So, as with all things, eat the meat here and spit out the bones........
