Christ judges believers righteous and makes them members of His body, the Church.
When such pardon is received man is no longer a violator due the gift of the Holy Spirit that changes the soul morally. The holy heart enables man to be righteous and to do righteousness in the eyes of God.
If man violates the law of God – God’s Judgment thus deems man a violator and the Judge’s pardon becomes null and void. No free passes to sin and no excuses to sin. On the other hand, if man keeps himself in the Grace of God – God’s final Judgment is a prepared heart day and night. This prepared heart will escape at an unknown hour – Tribulation, Wrath, and Judgment (compared to Noah’s Day and Sodom and Gomorrah when God rained down fire and brimstone).
God has predetermined that His Church (without spot) – the body of Christ will escape such future Judgment. How? The last trump will sound and Christ will “call out, or take up” His Church or Bride to meet with Him in the air. May be at an unexpected hour. The righteous and holy will escape tribulation for seven years and Judgment which are both promised. This is the benefit of the Churches refuge.
There is no Eternal security in God’s Divine Judgment. In Divine Judgment when Christ steps down on the Mount of Olives…the guarantee of future hope for many will be lost. No possible way for them to ever find repentance. At the end to the seven year Tribulation all men will stand before the Judgment seat of Christ and be judged according to their deeds either good or evil. Unfortunately many will be condemned into everlasting punishment by the Lord’s righteous Judgment.
Two Judgments mentioned: 1. When the believer’s are pardoned or thus deemed guilty; 2. When Christ returns with the saints to judge the nations.
Warning! Be ready! Listen for the sound of the last trump! It is written. The Church goes first.
