The phrase appears in Paul’s second letter to the Church at Corinth chapter 5.

2 Corinthians 5:10  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 he has done, whether good or bad.

Paul writes to the Church at Galatia in a similar vein:

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8  For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

All are judged.

Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment

This judgment has been put into the hands of Jesus Christ.

John 5:22  "For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son

There are three classes of people:

  1. Those who live and die in ignorance of the gospel. These remain in the grave and are perished forever.

    Psalms 49:20  Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

    Proverbs 21:16  The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

  2. Those who understand the gospel and refuse to obey it. These will be raised from the dead and condemned to die again and perish forever.

    Luke 13:28 "There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.

  3. Those who understand the gospel and obey it. These will be raised from the dead and given eternal life.

    Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Judgment will take place when Jesus Christ returns from heaven to establish the kingdom of God and to raise from the dead those who are deemed to be responsible

Acts 17:31  "because He (God) has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead."

John 5:28 Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29  and will come out—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
