Eternal judgment

We know the dead will rise and every man will face judgment, but those who remain in Christ until the end shall not come into judgment.

Jesus said:

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life . . .

Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice, and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation” (John 5:24,28,29).

Of course, we must be careful about our confidence in eternal life. We show we believe in Jesus if we keep His commandments, and walk in His path of salvation.

And if we return to our ways of sin, once we have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, there remains no more sacrifice for our sins (Hebrews 6:4-6; 10:26-31). So we must learn about maturity in Christ, and the power that keeps us from falling, which we will study in the final section, “I am the Life.”
