Item description for The Bema: A Story About The Judgment Seat Of Christ by Tim Stevenson & Pete Briscoe...
Overview Are you living for Today ... or for The Day?
Businessman Daniel Mathewson discovers that the way we conduct ourselves daily determines how we experience eternity. Thinking he is beginning just another day, he encounters The Day: the rapture of the church. Escorted by his guardian angel into the heavenly realm. Dan observes the wonders of Heaven, talks with angels, and learns to see life from a totally new perspective.
The first order of business is the Bema, the Judgement Seat of Christ. Millions of saints from every era and nation stand individually before Christ to be evaluated. While all possess eternal life in Christ, they receive different rewards and degrees of glory.
When Daniel appears before the Bema, the Lord gives him truly accurate self-knowledge for the first time in his life. More than anything elese, Daniel longs to hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" But, has his life earned that supreme reward?
The certainty of this day of reckoning has profound implications for the way believers should live here and now. The Bema presents this biblical truth in a stimulating, interesting, and understandable way, and helps Christians focus on living in the light of The Day rather than merely for today.

We need to tell God off... Apr 28, 2010
Reading these books wants me to stand before god and call him a complete failure and I want to give him a good PUNCH in his family jewels and destroy his stupid kingdom of heaven. It makes me sick to my stomach to read these books and how people are actually trying to prove that what they experienced is real through scientifc proof. They are either flat out lying, it is a mass delusion, or there is something psychologically wrong with them. I burned the movie the Passion of the Christ...
Judgement.... Jan 19, 2010
Very quick read, but did not find it to be a book I would tell friends about.
How should we live? Nov 7, 2009
This is an excellent book that will help each reader keep their priorities in order & give deep thought to what is truly important in this short earthly life & our soon coming eternal life.
Half truth Apr 13, 2008
Be weary of half-truths and whole lies. If what you read isn't 100% in the Bible, it is false.
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
'...OR BAD.'! It's funny how this book forgets to mention that we WILL stand before God and answer for our sins. Christ died so that we could have a chance to go to Heaven. It does not guarantee that we will end up there. We have to live a holy life. And if we don't, we will answer for it. This book is not accurate when compared to scriptures. If you want to know what Heaven is going to be like, read Revelation. It's in there. God has revealed to us through His word what He wants us to know. We should be satisfied with that and not look to books like these to tell us what we want to hear. Because they aren't always true. And if it's not true, then why do we waste our time?
The Judgment Seat - It will happen Nov 19, 2005
Some would say that the book is much like the film "It's a Wonderful Life" meets the bible. But it is far more than that. I have read many books that have educated my mind, strengthened my faith, precipitated enormous reflection, and made me understand the world better. Never have I read a book quite like this that has prompted me to understand the effect on others from every thing I choose to do, or not to do.
The Judgment Seat of Christ will definitely occur shortly after the Rapture of the Church. The Apostle Paul writes about it in (2 Corinithians Ch. 5.) While all hell breaks loose on earth leading up to the 2nd Coming of Christ, Christians will be with the Lord giving an account of each of our earthly actions while in this life.
I agree with Hal Lindsey in his book, "Faith for Earth's Final Hours" that one of the reasons that God created man was to witness to the angels as though Satan is under trial and puny man is being used as a "exhibit" against Satan to prove that lower forms of creation (man) could still follow the Lord. Shakespeare said it more secularly by saying that "all the world is a stage and the people merely players." We are each individually being "watched" and will be evaluated, good and bad, for our actions.
Stevenson's book tracks the life of a Christian that probably represents far too many. They recognize the need of the blood of Jesus Christ to atone for their sins. Yet, their lives don't always reflect or return much for the enormous gift that the Creator of the Universe gave with the gift of His only son.
The book is a definite page-turner as a literary device but will also profound make you think differently about each day of your life, each person you pass on the street, and each opportunity we have to share the love and forgiveness that God has offered. It is an enormously convicting book to read. But completely true.
