SALVATION QUESTION 48
Will a Christian be judged for their sins at the great white throne judgement in "Revelation 20:11
The question of sins for the believer was settled once for all at the cross. 1 John 3:5, John says, "And ye know that He (Christ) was manifested to take away our (believers) sins..." If the sins of a believer are "taken away," then they are gone. As Hebrews 10:17 states, "...to be remembered no more."
It is amazing to me how so many professing Christians believe that they are going to a judgment day for their sins. "Verily, Verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and SHALL NOT come into CONDEMNATION..." John 5:24. The word "condemnation" is translated forty-eight times in the New Testament Forty one times "judgment," three times "damnation," The verse says that a believer will NOT COME INTO judgment. Colossians 1:14, "In whom (Christ) we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins." The word "forgiveness" means, "release from bondage, to pardon, to dismiss the penalty."
If you are trusting Christ 100% for salvation from sin, rest assured from His word, that you will never come into future judgment for sins. Calvary took them all away, "as far as the east is from the west." Psalms 103.12, is questionable that a person is really saved that does not know that their sins are all removed by the blood of Christ. He has obtained eternal redemption through His blood for every believer. Hebrews 9:12.
Are you really trusting Him? Do you really believe His promises?
