READ: 2 Corinthians 5:9-13
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it...
God has prepared an extra judgement for believers. The Bible talks about two different thrones of judgement. The White Throne will be the place of judgement for the world. Christians will be judged at a different seat called the Judgement Seat of Christ.
The White Throne is the supreme court of Heaven. This is where the decision to admit you or not to admit you into Heaven will be taken, but there is another judgement seat for believers. (Revelation20:11-13).
The Scriptures show us that there are books that have the records of everything we do. These books record our works. It is essential that your name be in the all-important Book of Life. In addition, other books will be opened which contain records of our works. The dead will be judged out of these books according to their works.
Believers are going to receive judgement for what they do in their bodies. We must work the works of Jesus. The things we treasure are going to lose value in the moment of death. Everything that has been gathered and accumulated will become a mountain of foolishness. Our accumulated perishables will witness against us in that day. They will speak to Heaven and declare, "He was faithless, he did not obey you, he did not believe, his heart was on the treasures of this world."
Dear friend only one thing follows you to Heaven-your good works (Revelation 14:13).
