Will We Be Judged Immediately After We Die?




  The best passage to answer your question comes from Luke 16:18-31. 

Judgement is immediate, but it is neither final or complete immediately after we die. 

If we are believer in Jesus our spirit and soul will be in heaven with Jesus.

  (2 Corinthians 5:8-10 says, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.) 

Unbelievers will be in Hades until the final judgment, and then go to the Lake of Fire. (Revelation 20:11-15) 

Believers will be judged for their works which they have done for God, but not for sin.  (I Corinthians 3:10-15)

 We won’t be judged for sins because we are forgiven in Christ.

 Unbelievers will be judged for their sins.  (Revelation 20:15; 22:14; 21:27)

                In John 3:5, and 36 Jesus says that those who believe

that He died for them have everlasting life and those who do not believe are condemned already.

 I Corinthians 15:1-4 says, “Jesus died for our sins… that He was buried and that He was raised on the third day.”

  Acts 16:31 says, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”

 2 Timothy 1:12 says, “I am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.”


Dear soul,

Do you have the assurance that if you were to die today,

you'll be in the presence of the Lord in Heaven?

Death for a believer is but a doorway that opens into eternal life.


Those who fall asleep in Jesus

shall be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.

Those you've laid in the grave in tears,

you shall meet them again with joy!

Oh, to see their smile and feel their touch...

never to part again!


Yet, if you don't believe in the Lord, you're going to hell.

There is no pleasant way to say it.


The Scripture says,

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

                  ~ Romans 3:23


"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved."

                  ~ Romans 10:9


Don't fall asleep without Jesus

until you are assured of a place in heaven.


Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life

first you must believe in the Lord.

You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven

and put your trust in the Lord.

To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.

There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.

That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.


You can begin a personal relationship with Him

by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:


"Oh God, I'm a sinner.

I've been a sinner all of my life.

Forgive me, Lord.

I receive Jesus as my Savior.

I trust Him as my Lord.

Thank you for saving me.

In Jesus' name, Amen."

If you have never received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior,

but have received Him today after reading this invitation, please let us know.

We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
