Naked Before God: The Great White throne Judgment

 Those who reject Christ during their lives on earth, will stand before the Great White Throne in physically resurrected bodies to receive judgment for the deeds and choices they made during their lifetimes here on earth. The white color of the throne signifies the righteousness of God and the righteousness of the judgments about to be handed down. 

All will be held accountable for everything they did, or did not do, during their earthly existence. Every word and deed will be brought into judgment. Not one single stone will be left unturned. Nothing will remain hidden –Matthew 10:26, 12:36-37, Revelation 20:11-13, John 5:27-29.

The horror and shame of this judgment is beyond comprehension. How different it will be from the Judgment Seat of Christ, where the sins of the righteous will be cast into a sea of forgetfulness, where their sins will be remembered no more, where they will be rewarded and given white robes of righteousness to wear. 

The Bible says nothing about those at the Great White Throne Judgment being given anything to wear –*1 Corinthians 4:5, 2 Corinthians 5:3, Revelation 20:11-12.

 *1 Corinthians 4:5 describes two separate judgments.

Just as the first couple was naked and ashamed after they sinned, so these will stand before God naked and ashamed. But their shame will not be covered. They are present at the Great White Throne Judgment because they rejected the covering God provided for them from before the foundation of the earth –1 Peter 1:19-20, Revelation 13:8.

 Just as the souls and spirits of the righteous dead were reunited with their bodies at their resurrection, so the bodies of the unrighteous dead will be raised and reunited with their souls and spirits to stand before God and receive judgment. The resurrected bodies of the condemned will undergo a change, but the change will be vastly different from the raised bodies of Jesus and the Children of the Resurrection –Revelation 20:13, John 5:28-29, 2 John 3:2, Daniel 12:2.

No one has to stand before God at the Great White Throne Judgment, where all are already condemned. Choose the Judgment seat of Christ and live
