Q. I am seeing more and more that when we go to salvation judgment seat, God/Jesus may punish us for not doing good work here on earth. Is that true? I thought we should have faith and be saved, but is there another judgment?
A. There is only one judgment for believers and it’s called the Bema judgment. It takes place after the Rapture and is more like an awards ceremony where we’ll be recognized for the things we did here that are worthy of reward.
God can’t punish us for anything, because He already punished His Son in our place. The only thing that can happen at the Bema judgment is that some believers will discover they’ve failed to qualify for certain rewards because of the motives that prompted their behavior. Our salvation is secure as is our place in the Kingdom.(1 Cor 3:10-15)
