Ec 12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Joh 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 2Co 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. Ro 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: First, all three texts above refer to final judgement. Second, the words "works" and "deeds" are used synonymously Third, "every work" is brought into judgment and "every work" falls under only two possible classifications "good/righteous" or "evil/bad." Fourth, "every work...deeds" are those things "done in his body" that is either regarded "good" or "evil." CONCLUSION: Works are deeds and work/deeds consist of whatever is "done in his body" that fall under one of two possible classifications "good" or "evil". However, justification before God consists only of what "works...deeds" are done IN CHRIST'S BODY "for us" - 2 Cor. 5:21. Furthermore, "EVERY WORK" in regard to originating in man originates from only one of two possible natures (1) the works of the flesh; (2) the fruit of the spirit. Furthermore, "EVERY WORK" in regard to ULTIMATE origin originates either from the good Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:25) or from "evil spirits" (1 Tim. 4:1; 1 Jn. 4:6). Hence, "works" is ANYTHING YOU DO IN YOUR BODY beginning with "evil imaginations" (Mt. 15:17) manifested in evil works which include, false doctrines (heresies - Gal. 5:20) Moreover, the conscience does the same "work" (Rom. 2:15) as the law of God in providing the knowledge of "good" and "evil" by "excusing" for what is good and "accusing" for what is evil: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another - Rom. 2:15 The Law of God is simply the most comprehensive WRITTEN standard of righteousness given to man and all other lesser standards are "bearing witness" with that Law (Rom. 2;15) but the ultimate standard of God's Law is THE LIFE OF CHRIST - Rom. 3:21 Rom. 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: Paul explicitly says that the "righteousness of God" is manifested in the Law of God, but now it is manifested without the Law or outside the law and that external manifestion is "witnessed by the law and the prophets" or the righteoosness manifested IN THE PERSON OF CHRIST received by faith. CONCLUSION: Works are those things "done in his body" and "every work" falls under only TWO possible classifications (1) good/righteous or (2) evil/bad. All works have either two possible spiritual sources (1) Spirit of truth/fruit of the Spirit or (2) spirit of error/evil spirits; All works performed in the body of humans originate either from (1) the flesh or (2) the spirit.
