The Word Of Faith
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:8-11
And The Books Of God's Word
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:46-48
Is the Great White Throne Judgment describing judgment for all people or just the nonbelievers.
I know that believers are judged at the cross when accepting Christ as their savior and that the Bema Seat is a place where believers receive rewards, but is the GWTJ describing all judgment for believers and also nonbelievers.
When scripture says 'the dead' here, is Jesus Christ witnessing to both parties. Notice Rev 20:12 says 'to what they had done as recorded in the books', (books being plural).
Also notice it says 'the sea' vs 'Hades'.
To me, scripture is saying that the Great White Throne Judgment is for ALL people, and the Bema Seat of Christ is also part of the GWTJ under one final judgment.
The 'dead' meaning nobody has their bodies yet.
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:26-29
Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! Isaiah 17:12
And The Sea
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Revelation 20:13-14
The Judgement Bar
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
The Mercy Bar
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Revelation 3:20
