33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. I believe that this scripture teaches judgement! Who judges God. God judges us through the holy work of Christ. Since Christ stood where we could not stand God looks through the finished work of Christ on the cross to us who were sinners. Looking through the shed redeeming blood of Christ Jesus sees the elect eternally forgiven. Therefore they have eternal life. I believe in a general judgement Jesus separating the sheep from the goats. What I don't believe is that we will stand before the throne of God and every life will be exposed before Christ or after someone came to Christ every thought every deed good or bad. There is no charge layed against us. Is the prodigal son going to be judged according to his riotous living later or was he judged then? A case in point he came back to his Fathers house after he had ended up living with pigs.Lk 15:18 I will arise and go to my father and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee. 19: And I am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. ( I want to ask everyone on here have YOU ever felt like that?) I know I have. Did the Father judge him? Our Father is just like his Father. He arose and came to his father. But when we was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21: And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and I am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22 But the father said unto his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Notice he was Always his Fathers Son. Eternal Security! Since our heavenly Father is the judge... Who Shall Lay Anything To The Charge of Gods Elect?... What about the attitude of the prodigals son older brother? Some other brother can talk about that topic. II Tim 2:7 Consider what I say; and the Lord giveth thee understanding in all things.
