All Christians Will Stand Before Christ as Judge
We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ. Not just unbelievers, but “we.” And not some of us, but “all of us.” The Bible teaches clearly that all men, living and dead, saved and unsaved, must give an account to Christ. The Apostle Peter, in his great sermon in the house of Cornelius, said “that it is He which was ordained of God to be the judge of quick and dead” (Acts 10:42). Later in his first Epistle, Peter wrote that the saints “shall give account to Him that is ready to judge the quick (the living) and the dead” (1 Peter 4:5). Those who were dead, those who have died since or will have died, and the living must give account to Jesus Christ who is ready to judge all men.
