Although many of the thoughts surrounding The Judgment Seat of Christ tend to cause believers to wonder; to fear, and even to be a bit apprehensive; it is a doctrine which needs to be a motivating factor in our working for The Saviour.
When our name is called; and we begin to walk up to that Seat; face-to face and eye-to-eye with The Lord Jesus Christ; there will be a mix of many things going on inside us. The span of emotions will be immensely vast. Because of the revealing of our bad works; it will bring “…the terror of the Lord…” to be felt in us. But, it will also be a day of great rejoicing, as we receive our just rewards. It will be the first hour of our new life, when we will no longer be able to remember and feel the remorse for the bad works done in our flesh. Our “…consciences…” will then be purged by the purity of the fire of testing!
When we step away from that Seat, our eternal life, without the internal influence of our sin nature, will actually begin to be fully realized! It will also be a putting away of all the efforts Satan has made to hinder the work of The Lord! But the height of the emotions produced at that Seat; will be focused and centered around The glory of the works of The Lord Jesus!
