Judgements.(or, judgments).are decisions -2Thessalonians 1:5,6.
    We often decide.(judge others).that others are wrong, based upon our standards, often not high like this. One who knows God no longer looks for faults in himself.(why?), and will begin to view his fellow human beings in that same frame of mind. On the other hand, if one feels that others are critical of him, he probably will be critical in return and thus, we have contention
    1Peter 4:17 "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" Good question! What is to be their end? And, what are we to be judged with? -James 2:12.

Those in Christ have already been judged.(2Timothy 2:11; 1Thessalonians 1:10; 4:16; Colossians 3:3; 1Peter 1:5).by His blood; judged holy, righteous and perfect, separated from the world and preparing for a reward to be given at His coming -2Timothy 4:1 "I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom."
    Since we are already out of any condemnation.(Romans 8:1).thanks to Jesus, what have we got to look forward to? -Colossians 3:4.
    Those not in Christ will also be judged -Revelation 20:12. Those knowing the truth.(having been exposed to it and decided against it).are also judged -1Corinthians 5:13; 2Thessalonians 1:8. God has ways to change all minds no matter how far from spirituality they may be.
    At that time, this group will probably wonder why on earth they worked so hard to get right with God, when they had.already been made right with God by what Jesus did.and could have simply accepted it.
    But once they see how merciful God is: 1Corinthians 4:5 "Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts and then shall every man have praise of God.".Not, every man in fear, terror and hate of God. God knows how to love us! God is right there, and all for us
    Paul reasoned of the judgment to come -Acts 24:24,25

Who judges? Does God the Father? -John 5:22. Well then, does Christ? -John 8:15,16. Well then, what does judge us? -John 12:48.
    This is the way God is the Judge of all -Hebrews 12:23. He set up His word. Understand the Bible
    Christ does have authority to execute judgement.(also 'judgment').-John 5:27; Acts 10:42. As he hears from the Father He can judge -John 5:30. But what has He chosen even if we don't believe Him or in Him -John 12:47. And why?
    And how? 
    Job 9:24--The world.(those not converted; those not yet believing in Jesus Christ; those within whom the Holy Spirit has yet to reside).is going to be judged in (or 'by') the righteousness of Jesus Christ.(Acts 17:31; Romans 2:1-3,5-10,16).whose righteousness is freely.(Romans 5:17).imputed unto all.(Romans 3:22-24).who believe.
    It is Jesus that makes us acceptable to the Father -Ephesians 1:6; 2Corinthians 8:12; 2Corinthians 6:2,3. And our part? -Romans 14:17,18,19
    Has He 'judged' the world already? -John 3:17; 8:15,16; 12:47. However, most are under the impression that they are to be judged for evil leading to punishment. Hey! This is the new covenant, the time of grace. Get away from old covenant thinking. Bury it! Even the Old Testament talked of His forthcoming judgement -Psalms 96:13 ".....He cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness and the people with His truth." Psalms 1:5,6 "Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.".Their ways will perish, but they won't -Romans 5:6 ".....in due time Christ died for the ungodly.".Many corrections will then take place in society. Once God's kingdom is established here on Earth learning war will be no more, and learning righteousness will be readily-extant. So, the ungodly will not be in the judgement for reward as the righteous will be, and because God has such great compassion for the wicked, the wicked will be corrected toward the way that has been proven by others to be best for them. 
    It was the devil who was judged.(John 16:11).and cast out of heaven and down to hell, which is, living on this earth without being in a loving relationship with God -Luke 10:18

Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world. He was.cast out into.(original is 'into', 'among', 'towards', 'to', 'unto', 'on').the.earth and his angels were cast out with him." 

2Peter 2:4-"For if God spared not the angels that sinned.(original is 'missed the mark' of a relationship with God), but.cast them down to.hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment."

Living on the Earth, not knowing God, and going through all the trials and heartaches with the devil pumping you every chance he gets – that's the real hell, and our opportunity for overcoming, developing character in the process and thereby qualifying for an ultimate great reward -Ephesians 2:2 "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience." 1Corinthians 3:13 "Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is."
    Now the devil and demons inhabit the air surrounding the earth -Ephesians 2:2. God hasn't now sent and isn't sending anyone to an everburning hell. He is going to resurrect the unrighteous, the evil, the sinful -Acts 24:15 ".....that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust."
    God has put these angels into "chains of darkness" until judgment. In other words, they are the other part of the present necessary plan of God for mankind, which includes evil, till the time for all evil is over. It's not their time to change, as it now is ours.....continue?
