Don Stewart
In the future, God will judge humanity, angels, and our fallen world. The Bible speaks of the following judgments that are still to come.

1. The Judgment Seat Of Christ

This judgment concerns the believers in the church who will receive their reward. They will be judged in the sense of rewards, not condemnation. These rewards will be for deeds done after they have believed in Jesus.

2. Judgment Of Living Israel

When Christ returns, He will judge the living members of the nation Israel. Those who have trusted Him will enter His earthly kingdom and will be with Christ for all eternity.

3. Judgment Of The Gentiles

The Gentiles, or non-Jews, will also be judged when Christ returns. Those who have trusted Christ will enter His earthly kingdom, while those who did not will be taken to judgment.

4. Judgment Of The Old Testament Saints

The Old Testament believers will be raised when Christ returns. They will be rewarded for their faithfulness to Him and will inherit the promises of the kingdom.

5. Judgment Of Tribulation Saints

There will be those who die during the Great Tribulation who trust Christ before their death. Christ will judge them when He returns. This judgment will not be one of condemnation.

6. Judgment Of Satan

Satan, the angel who became the Devil, will also be judged by Christ when He returns.

7. Judgment Of Fallen Angels

The angels who followed Satan will receive their judgment at the return of Christ.

8. Judgment Of The Unsaved Dead

At the Great White Throne Judgment, the unsaved dead from all time will be judged and sent to their final destination by the One whom they rejected.

9. Judgment Of Millennial Believers

Those who have trusted Christ during the Millennium will be rewarded at the Great White Throne Judgment.

10. Judgment Of Death And Hell

Death and hell will be judged and thrown into the lake of fire.

11. Judgment Of The Present Heavens And Earth

Finally, God will judge the present heavens and the earth. He will then make a new heaven and new earth.


There are a number of judgments that the Bible speaks about that are still to come. They do not all happen at once. They include a number of participants: humans, angels, the heaven and earth, and death and hell itself.
