When will the good people all be judged?
Revelation 14:6,7 NIrV
“I saw another angel. He was flying high in the air. He came to tell everyone on
earth the good news that will always be true. He told it to every nation, tribe, language and people. In a loud
voice he said, “Have respect for God. Give him glory. The hour has come for God to judge. Worship him
who made the heavens and the earth.”

Revelation 22:12 NIrV Look! I am coming soon! I bring my rewards with me. I will reward each person
for what he has done.
Note: The judgment will actually be divided into two parts. The first part is before Jesus comes. The
Universe must see who is safe to save. There is always a judgment before people receive their rewards. If
Jesus brings His rewards for the good at His Second Coming, then their rewards must have been decided in
a judgment before Jesus comes.

In the second part of the judgment, who will also help in the judging?
1 Corinthians 6:2,3 NIrV
“Don’t you know that God’s people will judge the world? And if you are going
to judge the world, aren’t you able to judge small cases? Don’t you know that we will judge angels?”
Revelation 20:4-6 NIrV “I saw thrones. Those who had been given authority to judge were sitting on
them. I also saw the souls of those whose heads had been cut off because they had given witness for Jesus
and because of God’s word. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue. They had not received his mark
on their foreheads or hands. They came to life and ruled with Christ for 1,000 years. This is the first
resurrection. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended. Blessed and holy are
those who take part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them. They will be priests
of God and of Christ. They will rule with him for 1,000 years.”
Note: God is going to do something special. During the 1000 years following Jesus Second Coming, God
will have the second part of His judgment. This time, as Paul says, the good people will take part in the
judgment. All the good from Earth, and all of the Universe, must have a chance to see why each wicked
person cannot be saved. Everyone who is saved must be satisfied that God did all He could do, before
anyone is destroyed for eternity!

Will the good receive any special rewards in Heaven?
Rev 22:12 GW
"I'm coming soon! I will bring my reward with me to pay all people based on what they
have done.”
Note: If you read the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:34-46 about the talents and then about the sheep and
the goats, you see that God does have rewards. The parable of the talents may lead us to believe that there
may be some difference in rewards - even in Heaven. But, God will trust each person in Heaven with the
type of responsibility that their character preparation here has prepared them for in Heaven.

What is one reason that God’s judgment is taking so long in coming?
2 Peter 3:9 NIrV
“The Lord is not slow to keep his promise. He is not slow in the way some people
understand it. He is patient with you. He doesn’t want anyone to be destroyed. Instead, he wants all people
to turn away from their sins.

If we give our lives to His care, we can trust that Jesus will be fair and merciful when He judges us.
Why? John 5:22- ICB
Also, the Father judges no one. But the Father has given the Son power to do all
the judging.
Rom 8:34 TEV “ Who, then, will condemn them? Not Christ Jesus, who died, or rather, who was raised to
life and is at the right side of God, pleading with him for us!
