What It Will Be Like to be An Eternal Being
By Pastor Gary Boyd

You might ask yourself who can be an eternal being? According to scripture anyone who is saved and born again who lives by the ten commandments can be an immortal in eternity. What time would this take place then? At death our soul goes to the throne room of God if we are saved to await the rapture as the bride of Christ then to always be with the Lord. Philippians 3:20–21, But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, hby the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. 1 Corinthians 15:49, Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.
What of Death?
Death is just the temporary transitional state from one dimension to another. 1 Corinthians 15:42-45, “So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.” The same body we have now in the natural becomes our resurrected body in the spiritual, except it is perfected in glory.
The Bema Seat Judgment
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what we have done whether good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10). This is not a determination to see who will enter heaven.it is not, but a judgement for what rewards you will receive.The sins of believers will not be an issue at the judgment seat of Christ – they have already been forgiven. The Bible says. “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:10-12).
Destiny Of His Chosen Has Been Settled
Once Christ died on the cross, the eternity of the Christian has long since been won. There is no judgement of our sins for those who have believed in Christ. Paul wrote: “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).
Do We Now Have Eternal Life?
Believers who have had faith in Christ will now possess eternal life to be alive with Christ forever and ever. “I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; He has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24).
Know then the judgment seat of Christ is not purposed to punish believers. It is to reward them with crowns of glory for their faithful service. All of us believers in Christ will have to give an account of what we have done after our salvation in Christ Jesus. The Bema seat of Christ is then a judgment of believers works after they were saved. Paul gave this analogy:
“According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it . . . Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become manifest; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and fire will try each one’s work, of what sort it is” (1 Corinthians 3:10,12,13).
As believers remember we are in a race and our Godly umpire is Jesus Christ who will give to us our just rewards at the bema seat judgement. Each believer will stand before Christ to receive his just rewards just as they do at the Olympics. These rewards, however, will be eternal, our thrones will be in heaven as the 24 elders, then we will forever be with the Lord. Maranatha……….
