   Although we live our lives as though they will never end, down deep we know that just is not true.  What can we expect once our time on earth is over-is there something on the other side, or are we just gone? According to the Bible, and the words of Jesus Christ Himself, there is a time for each of us to stand before the Creator of the Universe and give an account for how we spent the life He gave us. There are two major times of judgment - one is for those who have dedicated themselves to Jesus and trust Him for their life, both here and in eternity, and the other is for those who have rejected the grace and salvation He has offered and must face the consequences of that rejection.   
   The Bema Judgment is for those who have answered God’s call to repentance and faith.  Answering the King's call to faith moves them from creatures of His creation to sons and daughters that recognize His love, covering, and Lordship over them. At that judgment, the followers of Christ will be judged as one who runs a race. Rewards, position in the coming kingdom, and blessings from the Judge are what believers can expect, trust, and for which they hope. They will find their life in heaven to be one of eternal connection with their Creator. 
    The White Throne, or Final Judgment, is what the Bema judged are grateful to avoid.  Those who have rejected God’s light, life, grace, and kingship have effectively chosen to be their own “god” and will find His wrath at their rejection of His rightful place in their lives  This will be a fearful time, a legal court setting where final sentencing will be passed and exacted.  Nations, individuals, and the rebellious angels will all be condemned to full separation from the Creator forever.  
  We are all going to be judged, either for how well we ran the race with a welcome into eternity or for sentencing for rejecting the King of all Creation.  So, the questions we must all answer are “Which camp have I chosen? Have I submitted to His kingship in full faith and trust?  Am I running the race according to HIS rules? And, am I ready to face the consequences that are surely coming?”
