You are Judged by your works. By what you have said, or done. True or false?

Revelation 20:12-13 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, the book of life. AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS, as recorded in the books. And the sea gave up the dead that were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, AND ALL WERE JUDGED ACCORDING TO WHAT THEY HAD DONE.

The above Scripture has claimed that people are Judged by their "works", or Judged by what they have "done".

But of course, what you have "done" includes every word spoken or written.

Consequently, God will send people to heaven or hell based on their "works", or what they have "done".

But what are you going to do about it, eh?

    God says....

    Revelation 20:12 KJV — And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, >>>according to their works.<<<

    "Judged...according to their works," not rewarded.

    God measures the depth and degree of our faiths by the number and quality of our works for his glory.

    No lasting good works = no salvation.

    Jesus speaking

    Revelation 2:26 KJV — And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

    Luke 3:9 KJV — And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Acts 26:20 — But he shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, >>>and do works meet for repentance.<<<

    Matthew 3:8 — Bring forth therefore fruits >>>meet for repentance<<<

    Matthew 16:27. For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his WORKS. Mark and Matt. never mention grace for good reason: GOD IS NOT RUNNING A WELFARE PROGRAM.

    I find no significance in the many books, or collection of books, mankind has written about the many gods.

    False.  To be “in Christ” is to bypass judgment.

    The fact of the matter: Yes: We are Judged by are works, just like Adam and Eve, they were judged the moment they ate the tree of good and evil and God told them beforehand the moment you eat from it you shall surely die, and they did, they died spiritually. and later they died physically. It is the same with us we are judged every time we sin. and eventually God will have enough of it and God will either save us or destroy us because of our wickedness.

    Unbelievers are shown that works can't save them, and they are sent to eternal torment in the lake of fire.  Believers are given rewards for works, but those works don't save and don't prove salvation.  Death leads to heaven or hell.  The Lord Jesus Christ is God, who died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead.  Nothing you could do will ever pay for any of your sins.  Jesus already paid for all of our sins with His death on the cross and His shed blood, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead.  So the only way to get into heaven and avoid hell, is by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, without adding any of your own works.  See Romans 4:5.  It is too late for you to be saved, after death.

    False.  Anyone that needs any form of "Jesus Christ" to 

    make their dreams come true, has no need for their god. 

    Whether you use the teachings of Jim Jones or David Koresh 

    from last century, or those of Jesus Christ from 2,000 years ago, 

    trying to acquire God through the use of something that is as 

    ritual-driven and symbolic as 'religion' is the unforgivable sin.

    False. Those who live by the Law are judged by the Law. Those who believe in Jesus Christ as their lord and savior and are baptized will be saved.
