014: Not Hurt of the Second Death

10/19/2021
One of the promises for overcomers is that they will not be hurt of the second death. What does that mean? Pastor Hollandsworth – in the first of a two-part episode – describes the rewards for overcomers in Rev. 2-3, pointing out from the Scriptures that NOT all saints are overcomers. He offers a possible explanation as to how unfaithful believers could be hurt of the second death at the Bema.

013: Preparing to Give a Good Account

10/13/2021
Once believers understand the importance of giving a good account at the Judgment Seat, they must learn HOW to prepare to meet Jesus. Pastor Hollandsworth explains the process of spiritual growth found in Romans 5 and emphasizes the agents of growth and how to apply them so believers can mature and get prepared for their coming appointment.

012: The Last Will Be First

10/4/2021
Some believers are troubled by a system of rewards to be selectively dispensed at the Bema, particularly the idea of negative reward. They think all believers are overcomers, by nature of their position in Christ. Pastor Hollandsworth explores the various motivations for serving Jesus, given in Scripture, and points out the abundant biblical basis for rewards, while debunking the “entitlement mentality,” which is so common in traditional Christianity.

011: Saints in Outer Darkness

9/29/2021
The term “outer darkness” is widely understood as a description of Hell for unbelievers. Pastor Hollandsworth looks at the three places the term is used in the New Testament, gives a biblical definition, and shows that it is NOT referring to Hell but, rather, to the realm of the kingdom where unfaithful believers will be consigned during the Millennium. He also distinguishes outer darkness from the erroneous doctrine of purgatory.

010: Here Comes the Bride

9/22/2021
Traditionalists claim that all believers will receive white robes of righteousness and will comprise the bride of Christ. Pastor Hollandsworth shows from Rev. 19 and the parable of the virgins (Matt. 25) that white robes and bridal status are reserved for faithful saints only. The ramifications are profound.

009: Looking for a City

9/15/2021
What is New Jerusalem that comes down from Heaven to Earth in the Millennium? What role does it play in the kingdom – and what do the terms “kingdom of heaven” and “kingdom of God” mean? Pastor Hollandsworth answers these questions from the Scriptures and gives five evidences that New Jerusalem is the city of reward for faithful saints.

008: Judged for Sinning?

9/8/2021
At salvation our sins are forgiven and covered by the blood of Jesus. Does that mean God never judges believers who persist in sinfulness going forward? Surprisingly, many Christians assume that is the case. Pastor Hollandsworth gives eight ways that God judges our continued sinfulness now, and demonstrates that He will certainly do so at the Judgment Seat.

007: Your Coming Verdict

9/1/2021
One day you will receive a verdict from the Judge of the Universe. Will it be positive or negative? How you are living now is determining your future verdict. Pastor Hollandsworth exposes the error of the traditional view that expects crowns to be given to all believers. He further demonstrates from the Scriptures the prospect of punishment for those who are unfaithful and explains the nature of the punishment.

006: Keeping Your Feet Clean

8/25/2021
Why did Jesus wash the feet of His disciples? Most say it was to illustrate humility and service. While that is partially correct, it stops far short of the full answer. Pastor Hollandsworth explains Christ’s indispensable requirement of keeping our “feet” clean as believers, so we can have a “part” with Him in future reward and rulership.

005: No Guarantees

8/18/2021
Most Christians believe we automatically become heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ at salvation. But is that what the Bible teaches? Pastor Hollandsworth explains Rom. 8:16-17 and distinguishes between the unconditional inheritance and the conditional inheritance, emphasizing the importance of qualifying for the conditional.

004: Paradoxes of Soul Salvation

8/11/2021
Jesus said, “Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” What is the meaning of these paradoxes, and what do they have to do with the Judgment Seat? Pastor Hollandsworth explains this text, as well as the meaning of Christ’s call for believers to: “deny self, take up your cross, and follow Me.”

Duration:00:23:44

002: Stuff That Burns

8/4/2021
At the Judgment Seat, "fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is." Many will "suffer loss." Another passage says, "he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done." What does this mean? And what is the stuff that burns? Why do so many teach that there is nothing to worry about? Pastor Hollandsworth discusses three inferior works that will be consumed at the Bema.

003: Three Tenses of Salvation

8/4/2021
Did you know that salvation has three tenses: past, present, and future? What does this have to do with the spirit, soul, and body of man? Pastor Hollandsworth defines "soul salvation" and discusses the critical importance of this New Testament truth that is often misunderstood.

001: Have You Been Duped By Traditions?

8/3/2021
Is some of our Christian teaching and preaching based on erroneous interpretations of Scripture that have been perpetually taught, generation after generation? Learn about your podcast host, Pastor James Hollandsworth, and how he came to realize that what he had been taught about the Judgment Seat of Christ was all wrong. The account we must all give to God is serious, not a mere awards ceremony, and multitudes of believers are unprepared because they have been incorrectly taught.
