Milepost 80: Great White Throne Judgment: Wicked

 

Primary References: Revelation 20:13-15

 

This second judgment is the great and dreadful judgment that is most commonly referenced when people speak of the great white throne judgment. For this judgment, the sea, death, and hell all give up their dead. Each is a holding place for the wicked with death holding the body and hell holding the soul. Two primary theories exist for the sea: it holds the bodies of the wicked dying at sea or holds those destroyed in Noah’s flood. The phrasing here suggests the later. Regardless, no righteous person now stands before His judgment seat. Like the first great white throne judgment, Jesus judges and rewards these dead according to their works but now instead of rewards, Jesus condemns them with punishments in the lake of fire. Though the outcome of the judgment is not in doubt, the book of life is checked one last time to make sure no mistakes are made.

Before they can go into eternal damnation, they finally have to give Jesus the honor due the King (see also Isaiah 45:23) but their confession will be too late to save them from everlasting punishment (Romans 14:10-12). Since they are already in the lake of fire, the beast and false prophet are the only wicked who do not bow to Jesus at this time (perhaps this happened in Revelation 19 before the angel threw them into the lake of fire). Notice that a person’s words and deeds will not save a person in this day (Matthew 7:21-23). Jesus sentences many who are falsely claiming to be Christians and doing great deeds in Jesus’ name to the lake of fire (John 14:6, Luke 12:8-12). One must confess Jesus to other people so Jesus will confess them (write people’s names in His book of life for example) in open court before God’s angels. How could people have cast out devils and prophesied without confessing Jesus? Perhaps they used His name for their personal benefit without ever having met the terms and conditions of Romans 10:9-10. Clearly, they have not believed in their hearts nor confessed with their mouth that God has raised Jesus from the dead. The fact is that not one of the people at this judgment has humbled themselves in this simple manner.
